Isamaru gives what almost no other general in edh can give: a 1 drop beater turn 1, every single game. this makes for an incredibly aggressive play-style, and a deck that can take a lot of other archetypes completely off guard. this specific build takes advantage of a multiplayer format by dropping the hound turn 1, then immediately dropping a 2-drop into a 3-drop that supports him, be it an equipment, spot removal for that deathrite shaman they dropped to block, or a good ol doublestrike enabler that makes isamaru swing through for some incredibly quick, soon-to-be-lethal damage. this isnt the way most edh players see their game plan going, so its usually easy to get some lethal damage in in the first 4-6 turns. this is the biggest advantage of this deck, its just utterly explosive. its an incredibly satisfying deck to play, if you like fairly straightforward, simple decks that smash face turn 1 of the game. also, equipment. lots and lots of equipment.
