I like this more than snapecaster mage ^^
snapecaster mage works once... albeit with flash, and lets you cast sorcery too. But Toshiro Umezawa just keeps giving... i like to use him with a couple Tribute to Hungers, doomblade s and/ or (in a red/black deck) a lightning bolt or two. also he works very fine with Innistrad's new Brimstone Volley

I think Umezawa's Jitte is better than the actual Umezawa guy.

Turns chainer's edict into plague wind according to the rules text.

Is this correct:
I have this card out and 4 other 2/2 samurai. 2 of which are tapped.
I cast Call to Glory.
My opponent has 2 2/2s and 2 1/1s.
During my attack phase all samurai, except Toshiro, attack.
Opponent designates all as defenders.

I can recast Call to Glory to untap my surviving 2 samurai right?

People only liked him for his sword.

How is he not holding his jitte?

Turns any removal you have into a Snapcaster Mage... Seems pretty good to me =D

So, as a fanciful idea of using a relatively unique general, I made an EDH deck with Toshi here.

Holy moly is it way more effective than I thought.

Creatures? No opponents get to have creatures when Toshiro is on the field, and they frequently underestimate him when they first see him. Black mana is abundant with Crypt Ghast (and the Extort is pretty brutal, given all the cheap instants flying around), Nirkana Revenant, and Cabal Coffers. The real trick is including things that profit off kill spells.

Harvester of Souls and Grave Betrayal are both insane, but the real breadwinner is Insidious Dreams. You fill up the graveyard with kill spells you can recast, and you get your pick out of the library.

For indestructible or Hexproof creatures, Grave Pact, Geth's Verdict, edicts, and so on prove invaluable. And if all el... (see all)

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
