Distortion Strike Discussion

You shouldnt play Spell Pierce main board you should instead play more pump spells. I would also suggest cutting how many unblockable spells you play. I would personally cut the Distortion Strike and Artful Dodge and keep the Slip Through Space if you really want to. You should also consider dropping the Ichorclaw Myr and instead play x4 Birds of Paradise. For pump you should bump Might of Old Krosa to x4 and the same for Groundswell. You should also not play Misty Rainforest you should instead play Windswept Heath and Wooded Foothills they are cheaper and do the same job of fetching Breeding Pool. And you should also cut the Rancor for more pump spells. You should also add Apostle's Blessing and Dismember

Maybe Distortion Strike? That's a common infect card

I would replace the single copy of Vapor Snag with a single Distortion Strike or Slip Through Space. You already have 14 Removal spells, the one vapor snag doesn't matter that much and both suggestions would let you get through and attack with your Geist and Swiftspear. Distortion Strike is more agressive, Slip Through Space is also a cantrip though.

Yeah FiddlerTyki, I agree with Lightning Bolt.I used Rift Bolt because I didn't have the Lightning Bolts but now I have. The same thing for the Ponder or Preordain.However I'll not use Temur Battle Rage because of its CMC. I opted to use Immolating Souleater instead of Delver of Secrets  Flip to get more chance of a turn 3 kill. Yeah, not having an unblockable spell is really bad but to see the face of your oponent after a turn 3 kill... totaly worth it. I've considered exchanging the draw spells for Vapor Snag or Distortion Strike but its seems too risky even for me.

Instead of Artful Dodge you may want to consider Distortion Strike. Also, if you can get hold of one, Wurmcoil Engine is great in a tron build.

Another thing to think about is the utility of Shield of the Avatar. since you're not going to have a lot of creatures on the field to fully utilize it.

I am such a fan of Shu Yun, and I like what you have going here. I do have a few card suggestions from what I play in my deck Beware The Monk!. My deck is not the average Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest deck in that I am attempting to find that creature/spell balance, while making sure that if Shu is removed too many times my creatures will (hopefully) allow me to get through late game for the win. In my first games he was very much a glass canon.

On to the CARDS! I'm a huge fan of Rebound effects with Shu, I wish there were more; Artful Maneuver is one of my favorites, I see you have the Distortion Strike. A few other cards that are enjoyable in this type of build are Titan's Strength, Leap, and one of my personal favorites Kusari-Gama. I think the Gama could potentially take your Sword of Vengeance's 6 slot since you are not happy with it.

Distortion Strike instead of aphotic perhaps?

How's your draw? Bident of Thassa and Coastal Piracy could help since you can make a fairy army and quite a few of your creatures want to deal combat damage.

As mentioned you have guys who want do combat damage, how about Distortion Strike & Artful Dodge to make sure you do? Both of these let you double-dip that advantage.

Rhystic Study, Mystic Remora, Phyrexian Arena, and Necropotence are consistent card draw engines too.

Whip of Erebos for life-gain and utility reanimation in a pinch.

I give all of these suggestions knowing I don't have to face it for a while, haha, but when I do it'll be a fun challenge to overcome!
