Godo, Bandit Warlord

Godo, Bandit Warlord

Legendary Creature — Human Barbarian

When Godo, Bandit Warlord enters the battlefield, you may search your library for an Equipment card and put it onto the battlefield. If you do, shuffle your library.

Whenever Godo attacks for the first time each turn, untap it and all Samurai you control. After this phase, there is an additional combat phase.

zaneanderman so the big issue with Godo, Bandit Warlord on this type of budget is explosivity. We are lacking extreme mana production in early turns meaning pushing out a a turn 2 or 3 win is very reliant on a Treasonous Ogre . We also lack adequate interaction at this budget. We have to have a backup plan which includes Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion and extra combat steps using his mana production and Underworld Breach to go infinite. It is a Godo backup when Godo gets to expensive. Twinflame with Dualcaster Mage is infinite hasty 2/2's.

I have been working on a Godo, Bandit Warlord deck and ran into a technicality that basically says Godo's Helm combo does NOT result in infinite creatures attacking, but does result infinite combat steps (Godo is not a Samurai...and only first time attacks result in untaps).

I was wondering if you guys are aware of this technicality because I message a mtg judge who forgot Godo is not a samurai. So as long as you don't run into an infinite wall...you are hitting an exposed opponent with 6 damage on infinite combat steps.

if you look into cEDH, there are mono color lists for every color.

Godo, Bandit Warlord is an incredibly powerful deck, and really highlight's red's ability to ritual out large amounts of mana.

White has both Heliod Ballista and Teshar KCI, both of which show very different sides to white.

Blue has artifact decks with Urza and Emry, and a couple other interesting lists.

Green is actually a storm color.

Black is just generally good.

In fact, the only color pair without representation is in cEDH.

Two cards to add if you haven't stumbled upon them yet - Godo, Bandit Warlord + Embercleave . Those combined with a XenaGod trigger will yield 48 trample damage.

Right. And either one of those 3 cards can tutor Godo, Bandit Warlord witch will tutor Helm of the Host into play then attach it to him for infinite combats for the win.

Alright, thanks everybody!

Omniscience_is_life, I think impulsive draw like Jeska's Will and Outpost Siege is too dangerous. Though a small chance, if I happen to exile up to three major creatures, I probably won't be able to cast them and I'll lose them completely. Valakut Awakening  Flip seems solid, though!

TriusMalarky Wow, Helm of the Host had been on my mind, but I never considered putting in Godo, Bandit Warlord as an alternative wincon. Open the Armory and Axgard Armory are nice! You are right, I don't care too much about tutors because they often limit how the deck works to specific cards. But in this case it makes sense, especially because of the Atla Palani, Nest Tender + Ashnod's Altar + Thornbite Staff combo.

Mtg_Mega_Nerds, gavriel1136, Thank you! Cathartic Reunion , Faithless Looting , Harmonize , Bond of Flourishing , Track Down , Return of the Wildspeaker all seem like good options!

hejtmane Thank you, I hadn't considered these since I have access to green for ramp. I'll check it out. As for Sensei's Divining Top and Scroll Rack , I actually had them in but eventually took them out again and put them into my Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign deck. I feel that topdeck manipulation is not the best approach here.

RambIe, I will put in Maskwood Nexus . Sacrificing a Blightsteel to save it from a Path or Swords - and then triggering Atla to bring in Kozilek, because that Blightstseel was also an egg, that seems like a great idea:) As for Greater Good , if I sacrifice an egg I will draw no cards but discard three, isn't that right? If Atla is removed before she triggers, doesn't that mean I just discard my hand for nothing? Seems a dangerous thing to do... which actually leads me to the question I've never thought about: When Atla is in play and I sacrifice the egg, she triggers. When she is removed with an instant, her trigger remains on the stack, doesn't it?

This was very helpful for me, thank you all!

Skullclamp is probably the best here. Go Open the Armory , Axgard Armory , Godo, Bandit Warlord (just add Helm of the Host and then he's another big thing to egg into)

Inventors' Fair as I'm assuming you run a good amount of mana rocks, Idyllic Tutor for library, Enlightened Tutor , and maybe Gamble too.

Of course some people don't like tutors so maybe you won't take this direction, in which case wheels.

Wheels, however, mostly work when you can dump your hand. You need to be able to vomit yourself to about 2-3 cards in hand on turn one and then wheel either t1 or t2. This is easiest when you have rituals and high quality artifact ramp, or at least mana dorks. This could really force you into a higher power level, so weigh your options, I guess.

Other than that, there should be some fun artifacts and enchantments that draw cards. Compost is pretty solid, Mazemind Tome isn't bad either.
