Hero of Bladehold

Creature — Human Knight

Battle cry (Whenever this creature attacks, each other attacking creature gets +1/+0 until end of turn.)

Whenever Hero of Bladehold attacks, put two 1/1 white soldier creature tokens onto the battlefield tapped and attacking.

Hi Crow-Umbra! This deck is super badass. I have a couple ideas on the manabase and am curious on your thoughts

First of all, Slayers' Stronghold can give a creature some bonuses (most importantly haste) for a red and a white. Could be great with your four drops like Hero of Bladehold, Leonin Warleader, or outright deadly paired with Elder Brain or Grave Titan. Saw you already had Hanweir Battlements  Meld so figured I'd suggest this one as well but I understand if you have it for the Meld dream.

Have you considered running the Kamigawa Neon Dynasty Legendary lands? Might be a little slow/expensive but the flavor is excellent for Musashi and I think Sokenzan, Crucible of Defiance could be a great add if you just need a couple more tokens with haste. 3 cmc (with Isshin out) isn't great for 2 haste tokens maybe but you can always play it as a land.

Thanks for all your help again - looking forward to reading your next edits here and hearing how the deck refines

My bad, my comment on Hero of Bladehold being a lower mana cost was not true at all, I must have accidentally looked at a different card than the Skyknight.

So, I think why your deck isn't ranking so high is a lot due to your having so many basic lands in the deck.

Aside from that, you have very few creatures in the deck, and many that you do have don't do things that other similar cards can do far better, or can't effectively be doubled by Isshin.

Take, for instance, Ankle Shanker. All of your creatures gaining deathtouch and first strike is cool and all, but doubling that with Isshin doesn't actually do anything. Focusing your deck to actually get double triggers that result in true doubling would increase your deck's effectiveness.

Other creatures you have, like Skyknight Vanguard, drop a single token creature. Two, with Isshin. However, a creature like Hero of Bladehold gives +1/+0 to all creatures, and drops 2x token creatures ... or, with Isshin, gives everything +2 power and drops 4 tokens. Yes, this creature costs like $9 to buy, but that's because it does great things and is far more efficient, not to mention it's lower mana cost, and that's how you a deck can be rated as more competitive.

It may help for you to possibly add more Samurai to your deck. It appears, with all the equipment and few creatures, that you want to attack in smaller numbers anyhow, and Samurai can help you benefit from that. You have Godo, Bandit Warlord, but the only samurai you have is your commander. Guys like Raiyuu, Storm's Edge might be more efficient for you (and he's cheap).

Personally, I'd try to find ways to fit in cards that would allow you to draw more, or at least some recursion.

Cards such as Response / Resurgence, Unburial Rites, Ancient Craving, Sol Ring, and Opal Palace are all cards you could get pretty easily and they could immediately benefit your deck.

If you'd like any other suggestions, or inspiration, please take a look at my own Isshin deck:

I might drop some of the Samurai like these:

1x Nezumi Bladeblesser

1x Norika Yamazaki, the Poet

1x Peerless Samurai

1x Heiko Yamazaki, the General

For:

Hero of Bladehold (she is rediculous with Isshin, 4 tokens out with +2/0)

Boros Charm: protection

Fireflux Squad: pretty good with the tokens

Aerial Surveyor: Can help with ramp

Some other adds:

Sword of the Animist: ramp

Rakdos Signet, Orzhov Signet: Ramp

Phyrexian Arena: try to get this while it is a bit low for now thanks to a recent reprint

Some suggested drops:

1x The Shattered States Era: There are better cards

1x Touch the Spirit Realm: pretty good, but there are better

1x Wanderer's Intervention: both this and the below have better cards you can use: Infernal Grasp, Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Despark, Anguished Unmaking, Bedevil, Baleful Mastery, Hero's Downfall, Dreadbore, Damn, Winds of Abandon

1x You Are Already Dead

1x Debt to the Kami

1x Deflecting Palm

1x Disenchant

1x Sword of Hours: there are better cards

1 Ecologist's Terrarium: there are better cards

It is looking good!!

Some more thoughts. First, if you like Ajani's Pridemate, what about a planeswalker that makes them and can also help with lifegain? Ajani, Strength of the Pride does both.

Also, I might consider some more token generators as tokens are a thing white does well which can also support your lifegain cards. Adeline, Resplendent Cathar is very good, as are Hero of Bladehold, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, and Leonin Warleader, which makes tokens with lifegain. More tokens equals more triggers from your soul sisters or fuel for powerhouses like Eldrazi Monument.

Cheaper artifact ramp can maybe go in place of more expensive artifact ramp. Grasp of Fate maybe replaces Oblivion Ring, since it's almost strictly an upgrade. Maybe replace Savage Beating or Sword of Light and Shadow. It's hard for me to make the call on what are/stronger weaker cards in this deck since I've never played her as a commander.

To make your job harder, here are more cards: Hero of Bladehold (similar to Hanweir Garrison  Meld, maybe better, but also higher cmc), and also Adriana, Captain of the Guard and Recruiter of the Guard (similar to Imperial Recruiter).

Good luck. Just gotta see what works and what doesn't, or what works better.

No Hero of Bladehold? Attack, order the triggers so that you make tokens before the battle cries, and you have four 3/1s (and all other attacking creatures get +2/+0 as well). At 4 toughness it's unlikely to die in combat too.
