Godo is good on his own, he doesn't need other Samurai support.

He can fetch Sword of Fire and Ice or Sword of Light and Shadow to protect himself from the enemy at hand - or just get a Lightning Greaves and deal 6 to the dome if undefended. Umezawa's Jitte is never bad neither.

His signature maul, Tenza, is not the ideal equipment, but it can be a great option to trample through blockers and have the Swords score a hit.

Some good Samurai to pair him with are Fumiko the Lowblood who ensures he will mostly go through unblocked, Iizuka the Ruthless who may sacrifice any of these to get CUADRUPLE benefit out of Swords and Jittes, and lastly Taurean Mauler who is just boss.

White likes him a lot too - Stonehewer Giant has vigilance so he can enjoy the double attack too, and fetch more equipment to perfect your defences.... (see all)

As far as kaimigawa is concerned, the combined affects on this card are actually pretty great, especially the secondary combat phase. I'm sure theres all sorts of equipment cards you can grab for it. There are still probably better cards at the same mana cost though. I assume its meant to be played in a white/red deck with sensei golden tail.

Mutatman and Ultratog have a point here.
Even if you grab his favourite equiment for Godo, you'll have a very hard time playing this card effectively in a samurai deck.
Being red doesn't even annoy me that much, it's a single red mana you should be able to afford (although the splash might weaken your deck, though)
Yet icluding his equipment in your samurai deck makes it rather useless for the rest of your creatures, though...
But he also isn't a Samurai himself, which is always a downside in a tribal deck, also in this case for another reason:
Consider that additional combat phases in a samurai deck can be much more useful than in other decks, since
a) the power buffs from bushido didn't wear off yet and
b) samurai can't be killed by blocking that easy, especially against chump blockers they'll be able to attack a second time effectively unharmed while your opponent's creatures will have a hard time blocking without dieing.
Yet Godo's litt... (see all)

Attacking with Godo in a samurai deck is one of the best parts of being alive. Sure, you could lose the game waiting for the mana to play him. Sure, he may not have enough to win a particular game. But, there are those times when Nagao is out, another samurai is out, and Godo comes to stomp with a Lightning Greaves. Those times are windmill slams and unadulterated joy. The joy of the Godo stomp!

@ Ultratog-- It's to get Tenza, Godo's Maul!

This guy brings out an Equipment out of the Library and he can sort of give your Samurais and himself vigilance. Bring out the Equipments from your Library multiple times by having Karakas!

He's not just good with samurai. He's good with creatures that have Vigilance. In my EDH deck for example I have Razia, Boros Archangel(my general), Akroma, Angel of Wrath, Twilight Shepherd, Stonehewer Giant, Sun Titan, Adarkar Valkyrie. Yes attacking twice with Sun Titan is good.

Used him recently to 1 shot two players in one turn.

Had Marshal's Anthemand Battlegrace Angelin play
Tutored Tenza, Godo's Mauland equipped to Razia.
Next turn played Psychotic Furytargeting Razia.
First combat phase swing for 11 double strike for 22 general damage.
Second combat phase swing for 12 double strike for 24 general damage.
Good game.

He's a big dude loaded with weapons, riding a yak, who hangs out with samurai, and grants you extra attacks. What's not to like?

Godo makes a mean Voltron general in EDH.
