"I don't care if your general has Bushido 108--"
"108 instances of Bushido 1."
"Whatever. I have a flying double-striking exalted Sun Titan with totem armor. You'll be dead in a few turns."


"Oh. Well, no big deal, I'll just have to bring back the totem armor each turn--"

Makes for some badass creature type combinations: Zombie Samurai, Wizard Samurai, Ninja Samurai, Demon Samurai...

"You there! Recruit! Name!"
"Saproling, sir, I'm a token, I-"
"I didn't ask for your life story, maggot! Drop and give me +1/+1!"

Every time you use his ability on a creature, they gain an additional instance of being a Samurai... even if they already were one. So if you train a guy up five times, they will be a Samurai-Samurai-Samurai-Samurai-Samurai!

Too bad it doesn't stack for things like Call to Glory.

Instant 5/5 since it trains things to become a Samurai. Seriously now.

Fate Transfer. Why? To confuse your opponent* of course.

multiple instances of bushido 1 stack, so it can give itself more instances as well as its students.
It could give Bushi Tenderfoot 2 instances of Bushido 1 for example.

Definitely use with non-Samurais to pump them up with Takeno, Samurai General, Nagao, Bound by Honor, and Call to Glory.

Question! If you give a creature the Samurai sub-type, can you save him with Oathkeeper, Takeno's Daisho? The creature would go to the graveyard and then return to play but only if s/he is a Samurai, does s/he lose the Samurai sub-type it gained while in play (because it goes to the graveyard)? It would lose the counter, but according the Magic Rulings the counter doesn't make the creature a Samurai with Bushido 1 (the counter is basically just there for fun and the abilities stay regardless of the counter staying or not.)
Also, will someone further explain the Magic Rulings on multiple instances of Bushido?

The ruling on Oathkeeper states that it checks after the creature is in the graveyard, so it have to have the type samurai while in the graveyard. It is understood that all effects that modify creatures cease to exist when put into a graveyard, unless otherwise stated.

in short, no it won't return the creature unless its is a samurai or changeling.

Part 2:

"Multiple instances of bushido trigger separately" translates to
bushido is a triggered ability. when the requirements to trigger it are met it goes on the stack.
having multiple bushido instances on a single creature will cause them to all trigger at the same time, then be put on the stack and be forced to resolve one at a time, not all at once.

Normally there is not a distinguishable difference between all in one or separate, but if someone is playing with a spell such as phthisis and a way to set it off at will means they could set it off to hit between your creature's increases in power and toughn... (see all)

I liked this card before I knew it could stack bushido. Now that I know, he's even cooler! Plus he's a fox; gotta love foxes. In the deck I use him in, I end up making wall samurai. It's pretty awesome.

Also, I think a 1/1 with bushido 2 would be more flavorful, but whatever.
