I would recommend Gorgon Flail or Basilisk Collar . Giving Ronin Cliffrider deathtouch is really rude.

As for commanders, I really like Aurelia, the Warleader , though I think that she's a bit build around. Here, Akiri, Fearless Voyager is a good fit. I would look at increasing the equipment count a little bit so that you can ensure card draw from her. I know it's not on theme, but stuff like Bloodforged Battle-Axe and even Bonesplitter are cheap and good damage buffs. I really like using O-Naginata in voltron decks due to its cheap cost, but it doesn't equip to as much stuff here without getting a bushido buff. That being said, it equips to your commander so it's still pretty good.

If you were going to try Aurelia as commander, I would recommand adding Helm of the Host to the list. Even without adding her, it's still a good card here anyway. It makes more samurai for you and allows you a combo out with Godo.

Hey corndiggitydog

Thanks for dropping by! And glad you like the deck :). Let me go over your suggestions:

  • You are right those 2 combo’s are very strong and that adding more tutors to fetch those combos is the right thing to do if I want this deck to become more competitive. However, they are so powerful that I fear they will overshadow some of the more janky combos, for example with Wheel of Misfortune . Notice that I’m not running Helm of the Host for this reason. I prefer a play style where I don’t have such consistency in finding “the best” combo, so I can have fun exploring some of these other card interactions.
  • I fully agree Coalhauler Swine is slow and janky. I might do as you say later and swap it out for something leaner, but I want to at least play with it in a few games to try and pull off a combo with it ;).
  • I don’t fully follow what you say about Gideon's Sacrifice . That card and Saving Grace are basically the same card. Both are great to combine with any of the damage cards in the deck, from board wipes like Blasphemous Act to Wheel of Misfortune and Volcano Hellion . I do see now that Martyrdom allows me to redirect damage that would be dealt to permanents other than mine, which I glanced over before ;). But I disagree taking out Coalhauler Swine impacts the inclusion of Gideon's Sacrifice .

Thanks again for your comment and upvote!

Some cards that might work in this deck are Winter Orb , Fiery Emancipation , Helm of the Host and Blood Moon / Magus of the Moon . Winter Orb helps you slow the game down for everyone while still getting card draw value with Etali. Fiery Emancipation just works. Helm of the Host helps you get more Etali's which leads to more value which leads to domination. Finally Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon help you control the game and just win.

Awesome deck! Love the commander. Certainly one of those I love seeing at the table because I know there's going to be a lot of fun.

Some recommendations for cuts: Ancestral Blade seems kind of weak for the deck. Give you a token you cant recur with Alesha and only gives +1/+1. Boros Signet and Rakdos Signet , as I don't generally like the signet's, but I know a lot of people like them. Promise of Tomorrow seems like a good win con card, but it doesn't work with this deck since Alesha want's to bring creatures back from the graveyard. Inspiring Captain seems like a good card for the deck, but you cant bring it back with Alesha and really will only help once or twice at best. Archetype of Aggression , Rogue's Passage , Demystify , Return to Dust , Shimmering Grotto , and Take Vengeance , are other cut's ID make personally. They don't add enough or do enough and there better options available.

I would add Savai Triome , Path of Ancestry , Helm of the Host , and Sigiled Sword of Valeron . You could just swap a basic land for the Triome.

I would consider switching: Act of Treason for Act of Aggression , and Murder for Go for the Throat .

I could see Rise of the Dark Realms being an awesome card with this deck, but it fits in almost all deck hahah.

I hope these recommendations helped. Upvote from me.
