What are your thoughts on Blood Clock ?

Came across a couple of cards and would like to know what others think of them and whether or not they should have a place here.

The effect is relevant given we want return effects, however it give our opponents the choice of what they return so they can also reuse ETB effects. On the other hand the cards tick life away if they choose not to return something.

It's been quite a journey in hunting the cards for the deck. I think it is now near the top of its game. The only other thing is to test Blood Clock .

Umbilicus, Blood Clock and maybe Daring Thief could help you

Giving this list a second look, I'm not sure you want Azors elecutors at all. It's a fun card, and feels very satisfying to win with, but isn't entirely compatible with your deck.

Detain slows down your opponents and gains you tempo, but it does not lock down the board completely. Looking at the cards you have here, it will take a lot of mana per turn to keep your opponents' locked down completely, which is what Azors elecutors really requires.

You'd probably be better off with some powerful and difficult-to-remove finisher; but I understand wanting to go with the style points of Azors elecutors.

As for cards to consider cutting:

  • Blood Clock - way too slow for Modern. By turn 4, your opponent is already looking to win, and they can always just return their worst card or pay an insignificant amount of life.

  • Norn's Annex - Decent card in Commander, not sure it's all that great in Modern. Ghostly Prison would be a better alternative, but, even that I find lacking after a couple turns.

I think you could also stand to cut some of your under-performing Detain (or pseudo-Detain) cards, and then run more copies of your best ones.

Daedalus19876 told me you had a good yuriko so I came by to check it out. So far it looks like a good deck. I'd recommend running Blood Clock and Umbilicus to show down your opponents. They're very good budget cards

you might want to add Blood Clock in this deck it's like a second Umbilicus and Capsize to bounce some annoying cards to slow a opponent down as well

I'd like to ask what's the budget you are working with. That way I can help a lot more with the deck. My own Yuriko deck costs around 200 but that's mostly because of 2-3 cards that are just overpriced.

It plays around Doomsday and big mana spells; take a look: Yuriko's Doomsday :p

With that said, one of the biggest issues ninjas face is getting back in your hand to do their ninjutsu again. Cards like Umbilicus and Blood Clock, and Cavern Harpy are powerful enablers I would highly suggest!
