Lanzo493 on Experimenting with untap

Horseshoe Crab , Vigean Graftmage , Pili-Pala , Simic Ragworm , Knacksaw Clique , and Soliton are a bunch of untap effects you can run. Combine them with anything that produces multiple mana, Gyre Sage , Karametra's Acolyte , Argothian Elder , Marwyn, the Nurturer , Viridian Joiner , Incubation Druid , Gyre Engineer , or Elvish Aberration and you have infinite mana.

With infinite mana, cards like Cytoplast Manipulator look better. Infinite mana also means infinite untaps, so Sage of Hours got better, too.

Sakashima the Impostor is $20. You may WANT it but you don't NEED it. Skeletal Changeling is a ninja and chump blocker with regenerate. I like that one.

There are several cheap enchantments to make a ninja unblockable after you get the first ninjitsu onto the board. Aqueous Form, Writ of Passage and Aether Tunnel are the cheapest. Flitterstep Eidolon can attack, ninjitsu then recast as bestow. Lots of mana but really flexible.

If you are married to the faerie theme try Knacksaw Clique or Puppeteer Clique for ETB, fly in, ninjitsu, recast for ETB all over. Bitterblossom provides chump blockers and fliers to ninjitsu off of. (Bitterblossom is expensive as heck though).

The biggest change i had to make to my deck after the first draft was Reliquary Tower, Thought Vessel, Library of Leng and anything to let me hold onto cards instead of discarding down to 7.

Joe9 on Phenax, God of Milling

I almost forgot about the untap symbol! With a little open mana, each of these cards would untap for another round of milling. These tricks also help a lot in combat. They work simply. When Phenax is out, tap these creatures on your turn and leave a little mana open. If an opponent attacks you, you can use your open mana to untap these creatures and block with them. If no one attacks you, then use your open mana during the last end step before your turn to untap these creatures and tap them again for their milling. Then, begin your turn. In reponse to blocking an opponent's attack, you can tap these creatures AGAIN for more milling before damage is dealt. How cool is that?!

Probably the best card in this category, is Knacksaw Clique. When you activate this untap ability, you get a free spell! How cool is that?!

Puresight Merrow trades one blue mana for the ability to "scry" 1 and mill for another 2.

Umbral Mantle eats 3 mana for another round of milling with any creature you control.

Pili-Pala takes 2 mana in exchange for 1 mana and milling 1 card.

Merrow Wavebreakers untaps for 2 to give it flying and let it mill another 3.

Merrow Grimeblotter works great for lowering the damage you might be dealt during an opponent's attack.

Leech Bonder can move counters around, including the -1/-1 counters from it to something else.

It looks like you have infinite combos for mana and counters, but not really any ways to win the game from that point. Here are some wincons that are in my Kraj deck that could work out well in this deck as well:

Funkydiscogod on All your deck are belong ...

Here's another idea:

Urza's Mine+Urza's Tower+Urza's Power Plant

Lantern of Insight + Ornate Kanzashi (because Knacksaw Clique is far more difficult to use)

Strategy: Use Lantern to watch the top of their library, and only steal things when you need to. For the rest of the deck, either run land destruction and activate it to steal lands, or run discard/removal and activate it to steal threats.
