ticked-off-squirrel it would.

What would happen is

  1. Stuffy Doll gets dealt damage. It says "oh, time to deal that much damage to the chosen player".

  2. Pariah's Shield says "wait, damage it being dealt to the equipped creature's controller! Time to redirect it to the equipped creature!"

  3. The Doll takes damage, and step 1 repeats, therefore repeating step 2, and so on.

Are Skirk Prospector and Brightstone Ritual really worth it with only eight goblins? I know Krenko can make stupid amounts of them, but the payoff seems a bit low with so few of them. I'd consider dropping them and maybe a land or two. Maybe add Chaos Warp and/or something like Enchanter's Bane for some protection from enchantments, Pariah's Shield for more defense from Hidetsugu's tap ability, Knollspine Dragon to draw massive amount of cards after Hidetsugu levels everyone and maybe Hellkite Courser to cheat out Hidetsugu out of nowhere.

Love the deck, though. Kamigawa is such a cool plane and I love the new Kamigawa Ink Secret Lair arts.

If you're looking for Bant, that would exclude the Marauding Raptor.

Stuffy Doll, choose yourself, attach Pariah or Pariah's Shield.

Played a bunch today and here is results of changes.

Changelog:

  • -1 Apex Devastator to sideboard, moved to sideboard to swap out with blightsteel/eldrazi for newer players
  • -1 Temur Sabertooth, removed due to the amount of cardraw available. I feel I would rather draw than bounce.
  • +1 Blightsteel Colossus to maindeck, Blightsteel is a counter to my local playgroup. We've got a lifegain deck and one deck running Pariah and Pariah's Shield. Along with Akroma's Memorial and Finale of Devastation this is my nuclear option.
  • +1 Bala Ged Sanctuary  Flip, land and recurrence is very valuable.
  • +1 Mirrorpool, ehh fine seems ok to drop a copy of a big creature that does something,, what's the worst that can happen? :)
  • -1 Mana Crypt to maybeboard, don't have one is the only reason. If I can get one,, maybe?
  • +1 Jeweled Lotus, replacement for mana crypt... Now let me tell you,, jeweled -> azusa --> lotus cobra --> two fetches --> Tooth and nail.. That was a quick game!
  • +1 Maze of Ith, This is at tech, really aggressive in my area! There are some cases it's death to not have an air blocker!
  • +1 Petrified Field, Testing it at this time, not sure how to abuse it yet
  • +1 Momentous Fall, Does not feel as bad as I initially thought. Use this defensively often times.
  • +1 Cryptic Caves, niche card testing it out. Turns your crucibles into three draw for 3 mana + land drops.. 3 mana draw 3 cards... seems decent
  • +1 Thespian's Stage, what does it do? answer: yes
  • -1 Beast Whisperer, I have enough creatures, but the costs are too high
  • +1 Zendikar Resurgent, replacement for beast whisperer, has the potential to double mana while going off
  • -1 Guardian Project, same problem as beast whisperer
  • +1 Return of the Wildspeaker, another large draw effect to combo off of to replace guardian
  • +1 Inkmoth Nexus, bad habits die hard, keeping one in deck for "that guy" at the table.
  • -1 Field of the Dead -> maybeboard, only reason I'm taking it out is I don't own it. Dropping it into maybe board

Other Thoughts:

  • Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is here to stay. When you go off with a large draw dropping him is amazing. He will give you enough mana to combo off and finish on the stop at times. He's also a good target for Natural Order.
  • After drawing 10 cards and drawing into Rude Awakening,, it has a new place in my heart, seems to be a keeper
  • Once I hit 25 basics, I think I can just win the game. The amount of basics should stick between 24-26 and 45 lands in total to facilitate the engines. If we're slightly under half I think we're good.
  • Kodama of the East Tree was potentially good enough to combo off a large draw with vorin, need to test this more!

Thinking of Cutting:

Why the sideboard was added:

  • Core creatures for swapping on the sideboard are Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Kozilek, the Great Distortion, Blightsteel Colossus, and Craterhoof Behemoth.
  • Each of these creatures fills a different role. voice of hunger is a creature to combo off with on a large draw or to slow down my opponents. Butcher of truth fills your hand then wins by sacing against a single opponent or threating multiple attack if they don't sac a specific permanent (politics yeeehhh). Blightsteel teaches people that lifegain decks don't work against green edh.... craterhoof teaches people that lifegain deck's don't work against green in edh (AZUSA SMASH!!)... please stop playing lifegain decks in edh... Great Distortion draws and controls the game if your ahead.

If I'm playing against my friends then these are great. If we're trying to include someone I will swap them out for cards in the sideboard and leave in a couple.

While the damage from Volcano Hellion can’t be prevented, it can be redirected. This is where Pariah and Deflecting Palm comes into play.

Also, you may consider Pariah's Shield to heavy if a mana investment but look into the assortment of ways to cheat it into play. May be worth your time.

ghostfire86: thanks for the suggestions! Pariah and Guilty Conscience have already found their way into the deck.

  • Pariah's Shield is too heavy of an investment in a game for me (8 mana for the effect and then there is no protection against cheap removal).

  • Volcano Hellion specifically states that its damage cannot be prevented, so I figured it won't work.

  • Repercussion is nice, but I do not have one at the moment. Will definitely keep an eye out for it.

  • Vigor same as with Repercussion.

  • Pyrohemia seems very nice and I might find room for it.

  • Shivan Meteor while great art, is too narrow for me.

I think you have a really interesting deck here and I absolutely love your commander pick! I'm really curious to see how you hone it as time goes on :) So far, do you think you are going to lean it further down either Samurai or Indestructible themes or keep it around where it is now?

I'm not much help in terms of Samurai but I do have some ideas if you are interested in adding more Indestructible-based pieces: Stuffy Doll , Creepy Doll , Colossus of Akros , Darksteel Sentinel , and Darksteel Colossus are pretty fun creatures and go really well with Pariah and Pariah's Shield . Fumigate is also a pretty sweet sweeper to drop mid-late game too, if you are looking for more of those :D
