Higure, the Still Wind Discussion
3 months ago
I don't have any new suggestions for you, but, I think revising the number of each card in your deck to improve its consistency.Here's my opinion:
Why? Because I think you have enough unblockable critters to get the ninjas out, I think it's better that you have more of a toolbox approach to it, running 4 Higure, and letting him fetch any ninja you needed, and running only 1 each of the other ninjas (except ninja of the deep hours, because that dude is tech).

I gotta chime in because im one of those Cult Kamigawa lovers :p However; I agree with just about everything in this article. Ninjutsu was/is cool but the double whammy of limited card selection and color choices made deck building around it pretty difficult. Im a casual/modern player and found that things like Ornithopter/Memnite seem liked good enablers but ultimately just didnt pack enough punch or value... but a tribe that also exists in the Dimir colors was Faeries and ETB effects like Spellstutter Sprite and damage effects from Oona's Blackguard...and the relatively new Faerie Miscreant it made it plausible to come up with a decent 60 card deck... in terms of EDH....impossible i think.... has anyone made a LEGIT Higure, the Still Wind EDH deck? (...and won...against people who have played Magic before...)

Entrei.....sigh, I guess I gotta explain some things to help you understand.
New to EDH? Nope. Been playing this and this format for a while actually. I did tag this deck as "casual" so it's not to be taken as seriously.
I never thought I'd have to defend Lightning Bolt. Really?! for 3.....that's value!! 3 may not seem like much when a player has 40 life total, but for a fast creature/planeswalker hit, it gets the job done. It is arguably one of the best cards in MTG and can easily fit into any format. I can only hope that I can imprint Isochron Scepter with it.
Collective Brutality is again...value. With Nekusar, the Mindrazer and the massive amount of card draw I put in this deck, I should not have a problem Escalating if I need to. This is a card I will keep an eye on and if I don't like the way it plays, I'll replace it with something else.
As far as Archive Trap goes, you are right that Mill is not exactly the focus, but with that being said, it does still play a factor in addition of the other effects.
Draw, Mill and/or Exile = less cards in library. Some that help:
- Consuming Aberration
- Sire of Stagnation
- Talent of the Telepath
- Jace, Memory Adept
- Archive Trap
- Jace's Erasure
- Sphinx's Tutelage
Cruel Ultimatum, you may be right, but I can't wait to use it.
Molten-Tail Masticore yeah yes.
Ninja of the Deep Hours, this is where I rely on Whispersilk Cloak, Higure, the Still Wind, Rogue's Passage and board wipes to get a hit in. The very worst, I'll discard him with Cathartic Reunion or wheel like effects.
This deck is all over the place and until I play it a few times, I'll be able to see what works well and what doesn't. Changes will come with time.

Whew boy. Interesting take on nekusar. I'm going to assume you are new to EDH, because there are a few cards in your list that are god awful in edh
Lightning Bolt the most broken card in modern, but as removal goes it's meh and for damage it's not worth the card space. Collective Brutality is also great in modern, but only because it counters burn. Archive Trap is hilarious in modern, and decent in mill for edh. Unfortunately seeing as mill is not your focus it is rather lackluster. Cruel Ultimatum, as devastating as its effects are, is not very effective for the 7 mana cmc and atrocious color requirements. Grim Lavamancer: same thing as lightning bolt. Fevered Visions is fun in standard, but lacks power in edh with the huge life totals. Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker same thing as ultimatum. Venser's Journal is decent in edh, mostly because of its interaction with Necropotence.Higure, the Still Wind this dude is only useable if you are doing tribal ninjas. Molten-Tail Masticore yeah no. Not enough effect on the field. Ninja of the Deep Hours yeah... he is only good if you can get him for his ninjutsu early game, but you have no one drop creatures to exploit off of him.

Typically, a commander must be a legendary creature (except for the planeswalkers from that one commander set), but if your commander can search for another card, you can build your deck around that card instead.
So here are all the options for making noncommander cards into your commanders:
(+/- , , , and/or ): Pick any Ally creature card thanks to General Tazri.
: Pick any Rebel permanent card thanks to Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero.
: Pick any creature card thanks to Yisan, the Wanderer Bard.
: Pick any creature card with flying thanks to Isperia the Inscrutable.
: Pick any legendary card thanks to Captain Sisay.
: Pick any creature card thanks to Momir Vig, Simic Visionary.
: Pick any enchantment card with converted mana cost 3 or less thanks to Zur the Enchanter.
If the card you build around and get with one of these commanders, you might need your commander to find a card that can bring that card back to the battlefield, so use MagicalHacker - List of All Recursion Cards to make your noncommander available to you even after it goes to the graveyard.
Feel free to share your builds using these ideas here! I'm currently building Arcum Dagsson Lantern Control, and I might build some others too...

Walker of Secret Ways is a bit too expensive in terms of mana and by itself it doesn't have enough impact on the game. It is however super fun, to do the trick with first time opponents :D
For example in the Ninja primer on MTGsalvation most decks run only Ninja of the Deep Hours inside faerie/counterspell decks, so they don't feel like very "ninja".

I think Kari Zev is terrible. It's so bad, I think we should bring back Tier 6 just to put her in it. I am shocked and honestly offended that WotC would print a card this bad.
