+1 from me dude. I think you defenitely need some ETB-effects like Pandemonium or Confusion in the Ranks. You could use Equilibrium. Why? Because it is very hard for your opponent, that everytime you cast a creature, return a creature of an opponent back to its hand. To have a great damage effect, you could combine Equilibrium with Black Vise. But of course, that is your decision. Ninjitsu is an ability that needs to be abused you know? Equilibrium could be the Engine behind your ninjitsu based deck.

As I'm sure you know, or incase you don't, Cabal Interrogator and Mourning are not Modern legal. To make the deck legal as is you'd have to change it to Legacy or simply Casual. I will make Modern suggestions assuming it's the format you want to advertise it in.

Liliana's Caress is a great card but it wont do much once your opponent is empty handed. The Rack on the other hand is perfect for punishing your opponents for not having cards in hand, much like Shrieking Affliction does.

PickleNutz I'm afraid not. All of the core cards are not modern legal (Strip Mine, Sinkhole, Black Vise, Blight). If I'm not mistaken I think you can make this lagacy legal by subbing 3x Strip Mines with 3 Wastelands. This is basically anti-8 rack, as it is a forcefeed varient. Youre best off going with 8-rack pox for modern my friend. Sorry, hope this helps!

Black Vise isn't Modern legal.

Wurmspiralmaschine14 Thank you very much for the suggestions. Black Vise might be very nice addition for me to play around with. The list is pretty tight but definitely worth testing. Also the black splash is an interesting idea; if I did that I would likely swap out the Sky Diamonds for Dimir Signets.

This deck looks fun to play. Not so much to play against, though. Would cards like Spreading Seas or Sea's Claim have a place here, just to screw with players more if they ever get a land on?

Also, although this deck is already perfect, you might want to consider splashing black just to add Liliana's Caress or Megrim, seeing as your opponent will probably be discarding a lot of cards that they don't have the lands to play. Waste Not would also fit, if you choose to do so. Warped Devotion, too, though it'll hurt you as well. Also, if you don't feel like splashing, then take a look at Black Vise. Cheers, and may the topdecks be ever in your favor!

good deck. Only artifact destruction and lifelink can stand that: Flammendes Schwert 20

FYI: "Todesfuge" in german means "death gap" (= picture of Black Vise / features card).

are you from germany ?
