This is just food for thought, but it could be worth replacing Miscreants or Faerie Seers with more Changeling Outcast s to get extra triggers off Ingenious Infiltrator . At the very least I'd cut the single Curious Obsession to fit another Outcast in, as I feel that the ninja synergy and increased 1-drop consistency is better than whatever benefit one Curious Obsession could offer.

I was tinkering with U/B faerie/ninja deck awhile back, but felt like the cards just weren't there to really pull it off, but it appears modern horizons changes that dramatically with Changeling Outcast , Faerie Seer , and Ingenious Infiltrator . You have provided much inspiration. I'm personally not a fan of Disrupting Shoal since you have to match the mana cost with your discard, but I can see where it works in this deck, though I do think more Thoughtseize could do more leg work.

For Modern discard options, red has access to Faithless Looting , Cathartic Reunion , and Burning Inquiry , all of which come down quick and can get cards into both your hand and graveyard; Blue has Discovery / Dispersal and Ideas Unbound , as well as Chart a Course , which you already have in the list and is nice because you can pick if you want to discard with it or not.

Looking at the Ingenious Infiltrator vs. Ninja of the Deep Hours , she's a hard call -- Infiltrator is finally giving the tribe a much needed payoff, but the double mana symbols make it less reliable to cast on turn 2 than Deep Hours, so it's up to how you feel about the situation. If you do decide to run the Infiltrator, you'll want to swap the Slither Blades out for Changeling Outcast s, as they are also unblockable and count as ninjas.

Mist-Syndicate plays nasty with Tetsuko, but that's probably its only draw right now. Maybe a Wingcrafter ? I'm not sure, I'm still theorycrafting on that one right now. :x

The Society of the Hidden Fist is an urban ninja organization. It is my head canon for Ingenious Infiltrator and Throatseeker from Modern Horizons. Make the Society’s low level grunts(should be a relatively high tier common)

Why not include Ninja of the Deep Hours provides additional draw power with cheap Ninjutsu it synergizes well with Ingenious Infiltrator . Also Faerie Seer is an evasive one drop with a relevant ETB and creature type.

I am working on a similar brew :)

Obviously Modern Horizons threw a lot of changes into the list. In my current iteration I'm running 26 creatures + Mutavault :

My ninjitsu enablers are either free ( Memnite , Ornithopter , Phyrexian Walker ) or provide repeatable utility ( Cabal Therapist , Putrid Imp , Sage of Epityr , Sidisi's Faithful ). I don't prioritize evasion at all. I'm also running all 3 1-drop changelings ( Changeling Outcast , Mothdust Changeling ,{Universal Automaton})

I'm running every creature with a ninjitsu cost of 1 or 2 ( Azra Smokeshaper , Ingenious Infiltrator , Mistblade Shinobi , Ninja of the Deep Hours , Sakashima's Student , Skullsnatcher , Walker of Secret Ways ) as well as 3 more expensive ninjas that provide value ( Fallen Shinobi , Mist-Syndicate Naga , Throat Slitter )

The other creatures I'm running either provide incredible ETB value ( Gilded Drake , Spellstutter Sprite , {I would probably run Snapcaster Mage if I had one}) or facilitate team evasion ( Filth , Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive , Wonder .

And of course there's the Dragon Knife itself, Draco :D

I haven't thought about that (but it sounds like an interesting idea!), but I have thought about the difficulty of playing Master of Cruelties . Usually you can get the kill at the earliest turn 6, that's a lot of time for things to go wrong.

But when the deck works, you have enough control to last that long. Especially if you get Mistblade Shinobi and Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive out.

Putting in more Alesha's and discard/mill cards would mean having to put in a lot of cards just to get Master out quicker. Not sure what to remove, but do you have any idea on what kind of cards to add for that to work?

I'm very excited about the upcoming Ninjas! I'm thinking of swapping out one or more Ninja of the Deep Hours for Ingenious Infiltrator . Mist-Syndicate Naga sounds a bit slow but I'd like to test it out, might be great with Higure, the Still Wind .
