bl4ckb0l7 on [PreCon] Moving Shadows - Rogues & Ninjas

1 week ago

I'm not sure, if I get the mechanics.

Attack with rogues like Deathcult Rogue and ninjas like Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, opponents will probably want to block your ninja if they have to choose - Then use "smokebomb" cards like Crystal Shard or Erratic Portal, bounce your ninja and use ninjutsu on the unblocked rogue! Now that's ninjastyle... ;)

Am I right, if I say:

Attack with both (rogue and ninja). Hopefully my opponents block the ninja. I bounce it, the ninja, back on my hand, use it's ninjutsu ability, return the rogue (unblocked) to my hand and bring back the bounced ninja to activate it's triggered ability?

Uh... I like that. My playgroup didn't see this coming. I think I will invest the necessary 250€ on this deck. This one seems fun to play and I LOVE X. Had to read it like three times to get, what it does, but once I got it, it was like: "OMFG! That's awesome fun!"

Cool deck! You might consider these: Lunar Force (this one is really cool. after its trigger goes on the stack, bounce it to your hand with venser. the opp's spell will still be countered by lunar force. it also prevents counter wars as force will counter everything on the stack while it's out), Reality Acid, Vedalken Mastermind, Erratic Portal, Kefnet's Monument, Sunken Hope, Perplexing Chimera, Mirrormade, Cloudstone Curio, Sigil Tracer, Displace, Ghostly Flicker, Equilibrium, Meteor Golem, Duplicant, Merchant Scroll

For anyone interested in a budget version, here are some changes I would recommend:

Necropotence becomes Underworld Connections (or Phyrexian Arena I guess, but still a little pricey).

Baleful Strix becomes Dusk Legion Zealot.

Chain of Vapor becomes literally any removal spell, it's just in here because I own a Chinese one and I like the card a lot. (Plus it can bounce your own commander and sac a land to make it into a removal spell.)

Crypt Ghast becomes any mana rock; it could also become some mana dork like Apprentice Wizard or something.

Erratic Portal ... uh ... I dunno, maybe Barrin, Tolarian Archmage? Not a great option but it's cheaper.

Mystic Remora becomes any draw spell.

There are also a couple of randomly expensive mana rocks or whatever, figure it out.

Just updated this deck a good bit. Took out some of the less ideal walls I had in there and added in some simple bounce enablers like Crystal Shard & Erratic Portal to get me some additional Arcades triggers. Let me know what you guys think.

Looks like a really interesting build! The life swap cards seem fun. I'm intrigued by Oriss's grandeur ability. It'd be hard to pull off, but you could make copies of her with Helm of the Host, return the original to hand with Erratic Portal, and discard the original using the clone. You could even lock a player out if you recur Oriss with the likes of Sun Titan/Bishop of Rebirth.

You might like these: Palace Jailer, Lapse of Certainty, Conqueror's Galleon  Flip, Throne of the High City, Arch of Orazca, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Bonder's Ornament, Smothering Tithe, Near-Death Experience, Pariah, Stonehewer Giant, Ravnica at War, Slate of Ancestry, Lightmine Field

Yay another Brokkos brewer!

I didn't take the Mutate route but its always good to see different approaches.

Erratic Portal is one of my go to cards for bouncing and it would compliment Crystal Shard pretty well if you need more bounce enablers.

You can check out my deck Brokkos: Whoomp, There It Is if you are looking for any more possible mutate targets. I went off the idea of always having my commander available and having the best/most value heavy targets for it.
