Crow-Umbra on Isshin for a Fight

Lookin good! If you like Revenge of Ravens and Emberwilde Captain, you might want to consider swapping Revenge of Ravens with Marchesa's Decree. Marchesa's Decree and Emberwilde Captain can work together in tandem.

Similarly, Norn's Decree is a kinda pillow fort/draw effect in a somewhat similar vein as Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant and Breena, the Demagogue. Norn's Decree might be a bit more useful if you have a lot of Goad in your meta.

Lastly, Gruesome Realization is like a Night's Whisper with the additional modal option to soften up an opponent's board before a swing, if needed.

Breena, the Demagogue Is really solid aggro, easy & fast builup on your lifelinkers, & card advantage.

I'm looking forward to playing him once I get the deck completed Crow-Umbra! Also what's your opinion on Underworld Connections? And what's the appeal of Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant and Breena, the Demagogue in Isshin?

Gleeock on Alternative themes/gimmick EDH deck ideas

I have some functional decks, where the theme runs outside of the usual lines of play for the given commander or color combo.

Marisi, Breaker of the Coil but enchantress can utilize some unusually aggressive enchantments compared to what you usually think with enchantress... Think things like Earnest Fellowship

Breena, the Demagogue lifelink, vigilance weenies with a planeswalker & proliferate subtheme. This is such a hodgepodge, but it ends up being so badass. It is definitely not Atraxa-walkers. Really nice combo of aggression, card draw, & Orzhov-walkers are kindof a unique gimmick to this commander.

You're going to want a lot more draw engines here. I'll try to keep my suggestions budget(ish) friendly.

Court of Grace, Skullclamp, Breena, the Demagogue, Reconnaissance Mission, Coastal Piracy, Bident of Thassa, Starscream, Power Hungry  Flip, Aerial Extortionist, Shadrix Silverquill, Welcoming Vampire, and Tocasia's Welcome are all great options that fit the theme and won't break the bank. I'd recommend getting up to at LEAST 10 draw engines (I run 17 in this deck... and it feels GREAT).

Nice start. I have a few suggestions for you. I'll try to keep things budget(ish) friendly and break it down by category.

Card Draw: Breena, the Demagogue, Karazikar, the Eye Tyrant, and Emberwilde Captain are all budget friendly AND good card draw here. Plumb the Forbidden in your maybeboard I can't recommend enough.

Pumps: Soltari Champion and Shared Animosity are excellent here. Shared Animosity will make just 4 matching tokens into 7/1's on attack... and it snowballs from there. Divine Visitation I guess goes in this category and is well worth a slot with this much token production.

Tokens: Launch the Fleet is something I've added recently to my own list. Good results so far but I've only seen it twice lol.

Finishers: Commissar Severina Raine and Brutal Hordechief will end people. Devilish Valet doesn't have an attack trigger but just 6 tokens entering makes him 64 power and 10 tokens is 1024 power. He WILL 1 shot at least 1 person out of nowhere.

Haste: Ogre Battledriver giving haste and pumping your tapped and attacking tokens works really well here.

Feel free to check out my list for ideas. Upvotes on any of my decks are appreciated. Isshin - Army of Darkness

Gleeock on How Many EDH Decks Do …

12 - My Home Depot tool box fits that many :)

In my regular group there are a couple of dads, a new dad, & college students. There is a variety of high quality proxies (easy to make) & a variety of budgets. Pretty much no rhyme or reason on which decks have the most expensive cards. My more competitive deck has some proxied duals even though I have the actual duals in a few power tiers below that deck :) I don't think I have that much time to organize decks very often anymore.

Of the 12 I only get time enough to play maybe 5 of them regularly though. The 5 that I come back to are:

Kardur, Doomscourge

Breena, the Demagogue

Marisi, Breaker of the Coil

Extus, Oriq Overlord  Flip

Atla Palani, Nest Tender - Direct damage "tribal" - near cEDH

Now that I know what I like, I am starting to sell off my overstock, mostly at lower price to friends & coworkers because I don't really need to lose out to the middle-man LGS & I don't need store credit for the occasional single that I pick up

Thank you for the suggestions CommanderNeyo, also cool user name. Kind of a shame we didn't see more of Commander Neyo in later seasons of Clone Wars.

You have some pretty interesting suggestions, mixed in with a couple of cards I have played before. I'll do my best to address my thoughts on each. Of your suggested cards, I do have Breena, the Demagogue & Mardu Ascendancy in my obnoxiously convoluted Maybe List. A long response for a long post:

  • Mardu Ascendancy has been on my radar since the earliest days of this deck's creation. I agree that it could fit right on, but haven't been able to decide what to swap it for.

  • Breena, the Demagogue used to be in earlier versions of this deck. I swapped it out for Tymna the Weaver a few months ago. I think I swapped it out because there are 2 Breena decks in my meta that I play against semi-regularly, and I wanted to cut down on potential confusion with multi-Breenas out. Agreed though, I have had rotations in the past where I'd draw multiple cards. Might revisit this and swap Tymna back out, especially since Professional Face-Breaker fills a similar function as Tymna.

  • Fiery Emancipation is cool, but I'm a bit more inclined to play that in something like Tor Wauki the Younger, which is more pinger damage focused. The triple color pip investment is not my favorite for 3 color decks. Cool card though, I can definitely see the value as a rec.

  • Dismantling Wave and Wear / Tear - I've been running both of them in my 99 for this deck since its inception more or less. I like removal options that are versatile, and/or can hit multiple targets at once without necessarily being a wipe. I like both cards. Dismantling Wave feels helpful and relevant each time I've played it, & usually takes care of at least one value engine per board.

  • Death Tyrant is an admittedly funky inclusion. Definitely a more experimental and flex spot that I've changed around the most over the past 10 months. I do play in a pretty token heavy, go-wide meta. I frequently play against the likes of Jetmir, Nexus of Revels, Xyris, the Writhing Storm, Wilhelt, the Rotcleaver, Chatterfang, Squirrel General, and Krenko, Mob Boss. I've seen Death Tyrant pop off for the Wilhelt deck. I've tempered my expectations that it would do a fraction of that here. Definitely a spot I could try something else. Possible landing spot for Mardu Ascendancy?

  • Boros Charm is great. I liked it a lot in my Osgir, the Reconstructor deck when it was still built. I think between Teferi's Protection, Akroma's Will, and Flawless Maneuver I feel pretty decent on instant speed protection. Definitely something I've considered, especially with the other modal options. I love modal spells lol.

  • Ramp overall feels fairly solid. Admittedly, I don't like the Signets as much because of the activation cost. My deck is fairly low to the ground, and rarely have felt the need for it. Zhentarim Bandit and Captain Lannery Storm can really gas things up with 1-2 swings each. Each time I've played Sword of the Animist, I wasn't the biggest threat until a couple turns later, and most of my Basics are on board now.

  • Austere Command is a top end removal option I've gone back and forth on. I recently added Ruinous Ultimatum to the deck as my top end nuclear option. It sat in my hand during a game I played this past weekend where I had the 7 mana, but one of the mana generators was Liquimetal Torque lol. On paper, I like Ruinous Ultimatum as a problem solver, but am not a fan of the very specific color pip investment.

  • Segue to Liquimetal Torque - I run it in most of my decks as just a rock. There's been a couple of occasions where I was able to turn something into an artifact when a Vandalblast went off. Not often, but still cool to know the option is there.

  • Guild Artisan and Veteran Soldier - I honestly hadn't considered them at all. I don't attack with Isshin often. The times I do, he's wearing Boots or Greaves, Dolmen Gate or Iroas are on board, or I have some kind of protection in hand ready to go. I try not to risk him in combat if I don't have to.

  • Combat Calligrapher was in one of the earliest versions of the deck that had more "pillow" effects like Marchesa's Decree. I played it once or twice, but my opponents would swing with it a couple times to get their Inklings, then kill the Calligrapher so they could then attack me with the creatures I gave them. One of the aforementioned Breena decks in my meta runs Calligrapher. They have had similar things happen to them lmao.
