Hi there Nezkul, generally speaking, I think Myriad is right at home in Isshin. Battle Angels of Tyr and Hammers of Moradin are both a couple of my favorite cards in my Isshin deck. Hammers of Moradin puts in lots of work clearing up lanes for aggro swings.

The combo you mentioned does have some nasty potential, but I do think it leans a bit more towards being telegraphed and mana intensive. I have used Master of Cruelties (MoC) to finish off someone before, but that was in my old Alesha, Who Smiles at Death deck, before I converted her into Isshin. I think MoC has a bit more viability in Reanimator decks, than in Isshin, because Reanimator decks can discard and reanimate MoC in the same turn. Without a Haste anthem of some kind, MoC will have to sit around a turn and be vulnerable to removal. The one time I pulled off a MoC kill, everyone else still left proceeded to rightfully focus me and finished me off next. Every game after, people suspected me of being able to set up MoC again, so I removed it from the deck.

As mentioned before Master of Cruelties (5 cmc) + Blade of Selves (6 mana to cast & equip) + Response / Resurgence (5 cmc) is fairly mana intensive to pull off over 1-2 turns at 16 total mana to pull off.

All of that being said, I do think that Myriad has a lot of viability when combined with Enter the Battlefield group-slug effects like Corpse Knight, Impact Tremors, Witty Roastmaster, and Purphoros, God of the Forge. Another potential heavy hitter in Myriad and token Isshin decks in general, is Devilish Valet. Its power can get out of hand with a couple of Myriad creatures swinging away.

If you want to check out some Myriad-focused Isshin decks, I'd recommend checking out some of the following:

If you do want to incorporate Blade of Selves in an extra combat combo, you can slap it on Aurelia, the Warleader. She's already strong on her own, that much more pushed with Isshin on the table, and nutty if you can get Blade of Selves on her with Isshin out. Even without Blade of Selves, she can act as a finisher for Isshin token decks.

Hope this helps!

Crow_Umbra Thank you so much for you suggestions! This REALLY helps me out a lot!

Aurelia, the Warleader is already included in the deck, maybe you missed this? Do you think, cutting Raiyuu, Storm's Edge and adding Karlach, Fury of Avernus is still good? Or should i consider to add something else in this place?

Dolmen Gate is definately a Card i am going to add in the future! I didn't know this was existing^^ Awesome!

All your other Suggestions speak for themselves. Thank you so much!

Welcome to tappedout and to Isshin brewing! Great choice for a first deck, he's definitely one of my favorites of the past year. I have a few suggestions to consider as you continue to tune the deck:

  • I think you can replace like 3 of your equipment with a few more mana rocks like Talisman of Indulgence and the others in Mardu colors. I mostly suggest this because your deck isn't as Equipment focused, and some of the equipment are mana intensive to cast and equip,

  • Reconnaissance is one of the best cards out there for any Isshin build variant. This EDHREC article better explains how Reconnaissance is basically a pseudo-Vigilance anthem, and can prevent combat damage that would be dealt to your creatures. A bit pricey though, but worth it.

  • Dolmen Gate - Another excellent card for pretty much any Isshin build. Also a bit pricey, but has had a recent reprinting.

  • Breena, the Demagogue - She can be a fun draw engine in Isshin, and has helped me win a few games with how much she can grow threats. Because opponents can benefit from her, they may be less likely to remove her until it's too late.

  • Aurelia, the Warleader or Karlach, Fury of Avernus can potentially replace Raiyuu. Raiyuu doesn't have haste like Aurelia, or triggers off you attacking outright like Karlach.

  • I think you can maybe replace Chaos Warp with some other removal options that are a bit more versatile, like Generous Gift, Anguished Unmaking, or Wear / Tear.

I hope these suggestions are helpful starting places for potential changes. Let me know if you would like some additional feedback, as Isshin is one of my favorite commanders. Best of luck with your games and brewing!

I was thinking maybe zombies because they have so many great lords and silly things like Rooftop Storm. But I'm also wondering if maybe you just name slivers instead? Like slivers already have pretty much all the best lords I could possibly imagine. So what if things that aren't slivers were turned into slivers to gain those benefits?

I'd include things like Aurelia, the Warleader and Saskia the Unyielding along side other great attackers with unique effects. Pile the sliver effects on them.

Unfortunately, Aurelia, the Warleader isn't a legal card for this deck since she has White in her color identity. Port Razer & Bloodthirster are both additional extra combat options that could be alternatives.

Varen-Kol, Extraordinary Geneticist

Legendary Creature - Human Elf Wizard

At the beginning of each upkeep, create a 2/2 green and blue Ooze creature token.

Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may have it become a copy of target creature with equal or less power, except it keeps its original name.


I wanted to give the feeling of power equal to what Aurelia, the Warleader brings to Boros. Hopefully I succeeded.

At the risk of starting an 8-card cycle... Choose another guild and make a legendary creature with its mana value following the same pattern of mana pips as Aurelia and Varen-Kol

Possibly Aurelia, the Warleader for more Alibou triggers? She also infinitely comboes with Helm of the Host
