So I want to build a Brothers Yamazaki deck. It would play with two significant, yet not that powerful, rules changes.
- 1.) You can build the deck with two copies of Brothers Yamazaki in it.
- 2.) They are errata'd in game to have "Partners with Brothers Yamazaki."
This would allow you, the player of the deck, to have two copies of Brothers Yamazaki in your deck, and both of them be your Commander. I would recommend sleeving them in different colored sleeves to keep track of each individual entity easier.
So this would be a standard 98 card library with 2x Commander's, like when you have Partners.
With that established, what would be the best way to build it?
Doing this purely for fun, but also because it sounds like a nice idea.
I'd say keep the budget to $200 or less so it can be decent. Since basically all lands can just be basics, that actually saves a lot of money for spicer cards.
The first thing that comes to mind is an aggressive aggro deck. You have two 5/4s on the field dealing Commander Damage. Yes each of them must deal their own 21 points to knock someone out, I know this. It's not a total, it's individual.
So cards that allow extra combat steps might be worth while. I think it would benefit heavily from Helm of the Host as well. If I am going aggro, Neheb, the Eternal, Etali, Primal Storm and Ilharg, the Raze-Boar would certainly want to be in there. Hellkite Charger as well, to get those extra steps. This makes me also believe Archetype of Aggression for that boon and creatures like Urabrask the Hidden may be worth looking into, along with Fervor.
EDIT: Wrong Archetype :p
Aside from attacking though, what else should it have? Burn? Light Voltron? Land destruction?

Looking good! I like the capitalizing on small creatures with trample to make them impressive attackers through Stonebrow. There's a few tricks I think you could make use of to really push this deck over the top, though!
One thing I like about abilities like Stonebrow's that trigger on attack is that they'll trigger multiple times if you're able to get multiple attacks in one turn. Cards like Relentless Assault, Hellkite Charger and World at War will let you overwhelm your opponents all in one mighty turn, with your tramplers getting +2/+2 the first time they attack and +4/+4 the second!
Since you're building around trample, I'd also highly recommend capitalizing on its excellent synergy with deathtouch. Trample lets you assign any leftover damage to the opponent once at least enough damage to be lethal is assigned to the blocker. It specifically refers to "lethal damage," not "damage equal to the creature's toughness." What does this mean? If the trampler has deathtouch, even 1 point is lethal - no matter how tough the blocker is! If you attack with a 5/5 who has trample and deathtouch, then you can deal 1 to a 4/4 blocker and the other 4 to the opponent. Bow of Nylea, Ohran Frostfang and Quietus Spike will all help your creatures nail your opponent whether he blocks or not.

Tata Elixir is there so that when I Primal Surge I don't lose the game. If Plaguecrafter gets put on the battlefield then I'll have to sac which will draw from Korvold and result in me losing. Additionally if someone can destroy my board at instant speed like Rout then I can pop the elixir to shuffle all the creatures back and the primal surge, then use Ring of Three Wishes to tutor primal surge and recast it again. The elixir doesn't do much on its own but it's a needed insurance policy for once my surge goes off. As far as the lockets I just like them better 1. because with Korvold it draws me 3 cards for 3 mana and 2. because they're just pet cards meaning I like them despite being sub optimal. As far as win cons, I can with with commander damage, tokens, getting Garruk's emblem, and taking extra combats with Hellkite Charger . I appreciate the suggestions and will start looking for a slot to add in Rune-Scarred Demon since that's another permanent based tutor to find primal surge.

I would cut the monuments as they are a little underwhelming
I personally love Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund as a haste enabler and to mind control any dragons your opponents might have or stole from you.
Definitely have a look at Urza's Incubator as the cost reduction can be fantastic.
Hope these suggestions give you some ideas.

Thanks as well Joe_Ken_. The biggest problem now is what do I remove or change out. I really like Aurelia and Gisela, as well as the other cards. For now, I will put them in the maybe board as I don't know what to switch out. For Aurelia maybe I switch out Hellkite Charger . Thanks Again. Bob

Essentially you get to take an extra combat step for only 1 mana each time.

Is this the commander your talking about? I think with all the dragons Dragon Tempest would be good for the haste and the additional damage (X based on # of dragon you control).
Blinding Fog is a bit high CMC, I might pass on this one, there are others (lower CMC) that do this job.
Urborg Volcano is a no, anything that just ETB tapped not the way to go for sure.
Command Tower is a must include.
Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon is always fun, and has regenerate.
Steel Hellkite can be good removal.
Just some initial ideas, but I'll have to get my head around exactly what the game plan is with the dragons tomorrow when I have some time.
