Fallen Shinobi Discussion

Lord_Grimm on Take forever

Really like the feel and flavor of this build! My only suggestions would be as follows:

This really doesn't appear to be a 'spells' sort of build, only having 20 Instant/Sorcery cards, so both Primal Amulet  Flip and Baral, Chief of Compliance feel a bit out of place. Maybe consider replacing them with whichever of these you like most: Undead Warchief, God-Eternal Oketra, Gisa and Geralf, Sidisi, Undead Vizier, Fallen Shinobi, The Scarab God.

I believe Commander's Sphere is grossly overplayed and is a trap. If you really like the ability to draw a card (which seems like you'll be doing very well already) then maybe consider replacing it with either Mind Stone or Hedron Archive. If color fixing is of higher priority Talisman of Hierarchy, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Progress or Gilded Lotus are great replacements.

Given you're in 3 colors, I think replacing Cryptic Command with Arcane Denial might be an easier to hold/cast (though slightly less flexible) upgrade.

As stated before, it seems as though drawing cards won't an issue. Plus having a yard full of goodies might be useful, so Dig Through Time may be a bit redundant if not a straight up non-bow. Replacing it with one of the unused creatures mentioned above may possibly be a better use for that card slot.

Hope these thoughts/suggestions help.

Thanks for your help, but I don't want the deck to be a mill deck. I like more the idea of stealing opponent's card with Thief of Sanity and Fallen Shinobi .

You should see the face of the person when you 1/1 unblockable becomes a Silent-Blade Oni or Fallen Shinobi . Or my best win yet was Volrath, the Shapestealer copying a Blighted Agent then flipping Hadana's Climb  Flip for the OHKO lol

what about Sakashima's Student i feel like it adds more consistency than Fallen Shinobi and you leave more mana open to control the board.

Modern has a lot of answers for Planeswalkers and your deck feels like it is very dependent on them. I'd say your list is threat light, "normally" a faeries list runs one of two options, 1) on tribe: Vendilion Clique / Brazen Borrower and 2) a surprise finisher like Fallen Shinobi to end the game quickly.

A 3/3 elk will die to an Anger of the Gods or vanish to Settle the Wreckage at the same time as a 1/1 faerie, so you can't necessarily rely on going wide via Bitterblossom. Gilded Goose is inefficient in a format with Birds of Paradise in Standard or Pioneer, sure, but Modern also has Noble Hierarch for ramp. I'm also surprised by the lack of Cryptic Command which is a mainstay.

Your sideboard seems to be weighted against Tron variants, which may be a meta call, but it is ignoring Blood Moon, which your deck will struggle with as it stands. With only two copies of Surgical Extraction as grave hate I'm not sure how well you can play against Dredge/CrabVine either, oddly Faerie Macabre may be a better choice...

Your mana-curve is good and your deck looks well colour balanced, it just seems to lack faeries, for a faerie deck. Still good luck and have fun with your brew and I hope the comments above are of some help.

I like the way this is shaping up (pardon the pun). Blatant Thievery might be better than Fallen Shinobi .

As far as abusing the proliferate theme, I think you should add in Evolution Sage and possibly Plaguemaw Beast , especially if you have sac fodder to use.

Roxas255, oh, this one is strictly for casual fun. Like, the kind of deck one would play while drinking beers with friends in a dining room. As long as the game doesn't end before turn four, it is likely that River's Rebuke will be drawn and would be able to be cast with the added help of Mana Drain . Without Mana Drain , the card is useless for sometime.

The Fallen Shinobi is in place for a bit more control. Essentially, with Writ of Passage , Cryptic Command or a Cavalier of Gales that is flung into existence, there is likely a time in which a creature is not blocked. If that is the case, the Shinobi ends up in the game with haste. He adds higher power/toughness than most of the creatures in the deck. His active ability is just so awesome, he seemed right for this deck. Thanks for the input and send all your criticisms/feedback my way!

So I think this deck definitely is interesting, but wanted to know what format the deck is for. So I can properly figure out any advice to give. One thing I am curious about is River's Rebuke . Having three is a little much in my opinion, unless your certain to be able to get enough mana to use it every time. The other thing is that I don't understand Fallen Shinobi in this deck so if you can give me your thoughts of why you decided it in your deck that be great and also if you can explain your reasoning behind the cards in your sideboard I would appreciate it. Sorry for the word barf, I just want to make sure I am giving adequate advice to help the best I can if possible.
