Inkfathom Infiltrator Discussion

azja on Yuriko...Help!!!

4 weeks ago

Hi, welcome to edh!

First off, I want to say I think the deck looks great so far! I've been playing Yuriko for about 8-9 months now, and here are some things I'd suggest:

  1. Dismember -5/-5 is sometimes not enough to kill the main threat at the table, maybe replace it with Far / Away (less limiting, higher cmc) or Reality Shift (gets around indestructible)

  2. Doom Blade too many people play black, Hero's Downfall is much less narrow

  3. Into the Story not super effective if you're not playing mill, Bident of Thassa synergizes with your deck more

  4. Lightning Greaves is not bad, but Whispersilk Cloak also gives Yuriko unblockable

  5. Mu Yanling I personally don't like planeswalkers in Yuriko decks. Since you won't have very good blockers, it likely won't survive until your next turn. I'd play something like Thassa, God of the Sea instead

  6. Liliana Vess same reason as number 5, maybe play Scheming Symmetry instead

  7. Decree of Pain the cycling mode hurts your creatures much more than the rest of the table since you play lots of 1/1 's and 2/2 's. Commit / Memory has a cmc of 10, and can be a temporary removal spell or counterspell

  8. In Garruk's Wake Yuriko decks are not good at hitting 9 mana. Although not a direct replacement, Consign / Oblivion is a card I think every Yuriko deck can run

  9. Kindred Dominance unless you have an effect like Conspiracy out on the board, this hurts you a lot too. I'd play something like Evacuation instead. It's instant speed, and you can re-play your creatures a lot faster than your opponents can.

  10. Dauthi Embrace using 2 black mana each turn just to make one creature unblockable is hard in most Yuriko decks. Try Aqueous Form instead

  11. Soothsaying also a pretty heavy mana investment for its effect. Although this card is not very budget-friendly, Sensei's Divining Top is much, much better

12-16. Inkfathom Infiltrator, Invisible Stalker, Quickling, Shadowmage Infiltrator, and Spark Double aren't good enough to justify their mana cost in my opinion. Some replacements I would suggest are Changeling Outcast, Dimir Infiltrator, Gudul Lurker, Mist-Cloaked Herald, Tormented Soul, and Baleful Strix

I hope this was helpful! If you want to check out my Yuriko deck, the link is https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/26-07-19-yuriko-edh/

Don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions!

Do you think Inkfathom Infiltrator and Fallen Shinobi , would be good cards for this deck?

Muddle the Mixture and Perplex are good if you need tutors for 2 or 3 CMC.

Inkfathom Infiltrator could replace Augury Owl if you don't really care about the scry 3.

I think Invisible Stalker is much better than Inkfathom Infiltrator because the stalker has a lot more evasión , not being able to be targeted by any burn spell or removal unless it is a Wrath of God , basically it wont die unless you block with it because you're desperate to survive (you cant block with inkfathom infiltrator).

Slither Blade is better than Prickly Boggart , 1 more thoughtness and is truly unblockable

Maybe Frogtosser Banneret ?

You can try cards with changeling .

You may add something for late game that gets bonuses from tribals decks like Door of Destinies , Coat of Arms , Adaptive Automaton , Metallic Mimic , Stoneforge Masterwork (i think this one is the best because most of your creatures are unblockable and is very fast , and if you add Invisible Stalker it is almost impossible to get rid of it , while the infathom will probably die instantly when you equip the artifact to it)

If you're not interested in Nightveil Sprite , then I would consider dropping Inkfathom Infiltrator for perhaps Sower of Temptation or Faerie Harbinger to grab exactly Oona's Blackguard , and then putting in Secluded Glen for more fast land. I have a deck that consistently gets fast mana with glen using a similar package. You could also add a Glen Elendra Liege for even more faeries.

If you're scared of reanimation decks, then Faerie Trickery is a card as well.

I've enjoyed 1 drops with late game utility like Deadeye Tracker and Mistcaller. I'm not sold on Quietus Spike, Inkfathom Infiltrator, or Thassa, God of the Sea since they seem very mana intensive for what they do. I might consider Keeper of Keys over Sun Quan, Lord of Wu as you can easily take back the monarchy with unblockable things or bouncing it back to your hand. Proteus Staff looks really awesome.I have a list on my deckling, if you want to compare, but it's a little more budget friendly.
