It's not bad, but keep in mind that you can't use the PAM BA attack on the same turns that you'd have Advantage, since the Samurai needs to use its BA for it.

As a result, you only get the BA when you don't have your buff.

Additionally, the Reaction attack wouldn't get Advantage, and the weapons you'd have to wield with PAM don't have the max damage that having constant Advantage would bring you.
