Therefore EDHREC has actually a list of unplayable commanders, basically oahu is the commanders that have several, or even zero decks on tapped out max.
Therefore right here you choose to go, the very first deck (I seen anyhow) built around Nagao, Bound by Honor and it's really.
Maybe not great.
Yeah, Samurai only have an individual block of support so currently you are fighting an uphill fight. And by going mono white you overlook two-color's worth of samurai. Mono light has actually 21 samurai total. Include changeling and also you reach 25. That is not sufficient for an Aggro deck, and lots of all of them are not agressive. Or good. Takeno's Cavalry any person?
There is alson't much payoff for being Samurai. Takeno, Samurai General could be the only great pay-off for being strictly Samurai.
Even although you want to go mono white, Konda, Lord of Eiganjo is a far better creature with a far more appropriate capability. Or better yet only play a aggressive white leader like Jazal Goldmane. Nagao's samurai ability is not also all that great since he's a 3/3. He will not be good animal.
That's not to express the deck can't win. Coat of Arms, Door of Destinies, and Obelisk of Urd change easy Swordsmith into master Samurai. And often agressive, punchy punchy catches decks off guard for enough time to stick an Elesh norn or Avacyn but not playing many-one falls kinda screws this deck over.
Therefore we go all-out on taste, while some cards are too good never to play, this deck has actually a huge amount of flavorful cards. Konda's perhaps not leading his army into struggle. Their right hand guy Nagao is going to lead the fight against the causes of evil. Even if his cause is debateable. (Whatever Ended Up Being Taken)
Phone to Glory, Hold the Line, Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho, Michiko Konda, reality Seeker, Umezawa's Jitte Eiganjo Castle, and plenty more all ooze flavor. It really is really Kamigawa samurai in deck kind.
So yeah maybe not an excellent deck but about Nagao eventually has property. One down.
In the event that you enjoy this deck take a look at conversation along with other ((soon to be made porches)) within the unplayable commander series.
