Higure, the Still Wind Discussion

For bonus points I used: Sun Quan, Lord of Wu - best way is to finish them off with fish riding horses
Back from the Brink - this is the only? way to get creatures back in mono U
Artificial Evolution - you can change Swarmyard to regen Merfolks, Wizards etc.

Conspiracy > Xenograft because Higure, the Still Wind. I would happily pay a colored mana in order to search up any critter. In a 2 color deck the color requirement is negligible imho.

I would love to put Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow in there, it's just I don't like spending more than a dollar or two on any single card and I put these lists up on Tapped Out to help me figure out decks I want to build with actual cardboard. That's also why I only have one Higure, the Still Wind. I'd love to have Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni too, why are all the good ninjas so expensive?!?

I recently took apart the planechase anthology decks so I have a few of the ninja cards people have been getting for their Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow decks. I have:
Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni
2x Ninja of the Deep Hours
Walker of Secret Ways
Higure, the Still Wind
I have noticed while making this thread that the hyperlink is not reflecting the updated price for several of the cards so check on the TCGplayer website will be needed. The rest of my binder is for sale as well as long as I receive a fair offer based on the TCGplayer pricing. As always, I am willing to explore trades as well. My biggest wants right now are Surgical Extraction, Blackcleave Cliffs, and Leyline of the Void. Just let me know if we can work anything out.

@Skulloelegy Thanks for the suggestions!
I think I'd rather add Conspiracy from the sideboard instead of the others, since it's important to have the creature type of cards outside of the battlefield also changed. This enables you to tutor all creatures with Ratcatcher and Higure, the Still Wind.

I've tried playing around with a blue/green ninja deck before, and I found Jhessian Infiltrator was a great fit for an evasive attacker. It also has enough power that it can take some swings at your opponent if you don't have anyone to ninjitsu out. Mystic Snake is likewise a great option, since getting to reset its counterspell ability can be very powerful. In terms of giving your ninjas evasion after they're already in play, Higure, the Still Wind, Rogue's Passage and Neurok Invisimancer are all good options.
You can see the build I settled on here: UG... ninjas.

Improvise is a funny one, actually. I've seen Inspiring Statuary pull some incredible stunts in EDH, essentially turning all of your artifacts into rocks for casting anything other than yet more artifacts. Other than that though, I can't say I've ever seen Improvise do great. I've seen a few castings of Battle at the Bridge that had real impact on the game, but more often than not the caster didn't even use Improvise.
There are a lot of mechanics though that I feel like failed simply for lack of support or even quantity. Take Ninjutsu for instance, with only 8 cards originally printed with it, 2 printed later in non-standard sets. Ninjutsu could have been genuinely great, and Ninja of the Deep Hours still seems to be a pretty popular and effective card. I'd love to be able to build a Higure, the Still Wind EDH deck but there's just not enough to work with.
One of my biggest complaints about WotC's design process is that they are so hasty to cram loads of mechanics into each set like they're throwing darts to see what will stick, and then never even revisit the stuff that worked! I get that some of it was supposed to be stuff that was tied to specific groups/factions/clans lore-wise, but man, I'd love to see Overload, Dash, Undying, Persist, Evolve, Battle Cry, etc etc the list goes on forever, return in some way. Put them on different colors, mix things up. I mean it seems like just now in Dominaria they're toying with triggered abilities that go off when you cast a kicked spell. Where was that kind of support for Overload, or Dash? Dash in particular to me seemed like such an interesting mechanic but they just... never did anything with it, it's just sort of... there. I mean Warbringer was a thing but... meh? There's only 18 Dash cards and of them 6 get little or no benefit from Warbringer.
As RazortoothMtg pointed out, there's only three Meld pairs. Excuse me but what? Even if this mechanic was a huge success, it takes WotC years to design and push out sets. If they're trying to "test the waters" by the time they know a mechanic is popular it's too late, it's going to take years to deliver us more cards with it and we'll have moved on. I hate to say it but with the way things work, they really need to be diving head first into new mechanics. The current system just makes everything seem so spotty and timid, like they're desperately afraid of screwing up, but that in and of itself is what they are screwing up.
