Crow-Umbra on $25 Budget Isshin
1 month ago
Hey there, I saw your post on Reddit and figured I'd leave my suggestions here. I think for the most part, the majority of the deck is solid, but you can likely swap out Heiko Yamazaki, the General, Asari Captain, Peerless Samurai, Raiyuu, Storm's Edge, Selfless Samurai, and Tempered in Solitude, since all of those only care about solo attacking Warriors or Samurai, or solo creatures in the case of Tempered in Solitude. From having played Isshin a lot, the deck wants to swing out with more than one creature a lot of the time, and these cards all feel at odds with the rest of your deck.
Some potential swaps that can still fit your budget:
Scapegoat - Mana efficient and budget friendly board protection. I had this in for a while before Clever Concealment was printed.
Signal Pest - Very solid one drop for just about any Isshin list.
Rakdos Signet - Your ramp is a little light, 1-2 more rocks can help.
Soul Partition - Pulls excellent double duty as a either a removal piece or can protect one of your permanents.
Elturel Survivors - Something I've wanted to find a slot for in my Isshin deck, but haven't been able to.
Scrappy Bruiser - A new piece of tech from MOM that's meant to synergize more with Backup, but can be a pseudo protective piece here.

Nice deck! I had a chance to play test Skyhunter Strike Force this past weekend, and recommend it as a replacement for Adriana, Captain of the Guard.
Zhentarim Bandit could also be a potential replacement for Burnished Hart.
Idk if you have had a chance to play this deck irl yet, but your curve is just a little high. If you've played it irl and haven't had much issue with it, then no worries. If you had some consistency hiccups in that regard, I'd recommend maybe cutting a few cards at the highest end of your curve for a bit more 2 mana rock ramp like Talisman of Conviction or Rakdos Signet.
Hope these suggestions are helpful.

Some of the most critical components for this list to increase the amount of is mana ramp and card advantage, and increasing the quality of some of the removal; you generally want 10 in each category.
Top contenders that synergize with Knights and Equipment are Danitha Capashen, Paragon, Sword of the Animist, Sword of Hearth and Home, Forging the Tyrite Sword, Boros Signet, Orzhov Signet, and Rakdos Signet for ramp, Armored Skyhunter, Akiri, Fearless Voyager, Stormfist Crusader, and Mask of Griselbrand for card draw.
Cards worth cutting would be: Armored Ascension, Recumbent Bliss, Bond of Discipline, Duress, Integrity / Intervention, one of each basic land, Crashing Drawbridge, and Moon-Blessed Cleric to make room for the essentials.

Hi m8, I think you made a little mistake by including Diluvian Primordial. Other than that, since your deck is heavy on token generation, I thought Sorin, Grim Nemesis, or maybe Legion's Landing Flip could also work in your favor.
To increase the speed of the deck, I'd also really consider adding some more ramp (Arcane Signet, Chromatic Lantern, Boros Signet, Orzhov Signet, Rakdos Signet, Talisman of Conviction, Talisman of Hierarchy, Talisman of Indulgence) and draw opportunities (Phyrexian Arena, Underworld Connections and Vampiric Rites). I'd really get rid of the Goblin cards if I were you. Your deck doesn't contain any tutoring options so the chances of you assembling the combo mentioned are extremely small anyway.

I have a deck with a similar playstyle, but I went with Rograkh, Son of Rohgahh and Tymna the Weaver as the commanders.
I think you should seriously look at Mardu Ascendancy, since it has the potential to generate you a ton of tokens (on top of having some built-in protection).
Another card I would recommend taking out of the Maybeboard is Breena, the Demagogue. She has worked extremely well for me, and she will easily draw you four cards in one turn all the while buffing your creatures into large threats.
I also think that Fiery Emancipation is a great card, and worth a consideration. The triple-damage easily ends games on the spot, and is a huge swing not many people are prepared for.
How is Dismantling Wave working for you? I like that it hits all opponents, but seems a bit pricey for artifact/enchantment removal. I run Wear / Tear instead, but might give Wave more of a look.
Death Tyrant seems fairly mana-intensive for its effect, does your meta run a lot of token decks?
Surprised not to see Boros Charm here. I would definitely give it a look, it has personally saved me more than once!
For ramp, I see you don't have any of the traditional signets (Boros Signet, Rakdos Signet, Orzhov Signet). Do you feel as though you have enough ramp already? Also, how has Liquimetal Torque worked out for you? I have considered it in the past, but never knew how often its ability would be useful.
Because your creatures are low to the ground, have you considered Austere Command?
Have you considered some of the backgrounds, namely Guild Artisan and Veteran Soldier? Artisan will generate you four treasures, and Veteran will generate 6 tokens.
Have you also considered Combat Calligrapher? Every swing will generate you a good amount of tokens, and it lures your enemies into attacking each other.
My apologies for the long post, but I hope it is helpful!

I think you have the beginnings of a solid deck, but could stand for a few more minor upgrades. It may sound a bit counter-intuitive, but I think your land count is a bit high at 41. I think you could swap out a handful (maybe like 5) lands for some more two mana rocks like Rakdos Signet and the others in Mardu colors, Talisman of Hierarchy and a couple of the others in those colors, and maybe Mind Stone. Having some more rocks will help you ramp earlier on in a color combo that needs it, vs having a handful of lands that you will have to wait and play.
My last suggestion would be to swap out Sram, Senior Edificer. You currently have ~7 equipment in deck and no Auras, so the likelihood of drawing with Sram is pretty low. There are some other cheap cmc creatures that can still be impactful like Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Goro-Goro, Disciple of Ryusei, Hope of Ghirapur, and Ardoz, Cobbler of War.
I hope these suggestions are helpful. Happy brewing!

It's not the most budget suggestion, but Black Market Connections could be a potential upgrade to Phyrexian Arena. It gives you more options to work with, and is slightly easier to cast on color investment compared to Arena.
You could also stand to add a bit more ramp to your deck. Mardu needs all the help it can get in that department. Any of the two mana rocks are your friends: Talisman of Conviction and the others in that cycle, Rakdos Signet and crew, Mind Stone, and maybe Liquimetal Torque.

Your avg. Cmc is really high, so I'd personally suggest cutting from the top of your curve. Cut all 3 of your 8 drops, your 7 drop, Cryptolith Fragment, Descent into Avernus, and Pyrohemia. I'd honestly suggest adding Rakdos Signet, Dimir Signet, and Izzet Signet also though, which would require 3 more cuts.
