You need a Library of Leng so you can discard your highest CMC creature to the top of your library and then draw it again.

Well, when going for the CMDR kill, Mesmeric Orb is the card of dreams, where other cards aren't bad, like Vicious Rumors, they don't do enough to warrant me wanting their inclusion without the commander.

What should be kept is a lot of tutors, to fetch different cards, as well as a lot of ramp. Then a reasonably large hand disruption package, and finishing the deck off with some combos, and cards that do a ton to swing the board in your favor.


Unsure of your budget, and the power level you want, here are the cards I would add to increase the competitiveness of the deck:

Lands: Ancient Tomb, Gemstone Caverns, Bloodstained Mire, Polluted Delta, Verdant Catacombs, Marsh Flats

(On a budget? Do nothing with the lands!)

Tutors: Demonic Tutor, Imperial Seal, Vampiric Tutor, Grim Tutor, Cruel Tutor, Demonic Consultation.

(On a budget? Mastermind's Acquisition, Diabolic Tutor, Dark Petition, Behold the Beyond, Demonic Collusion, Demonic Consultation, Diabolic Revelation, Increasing Ambition, and Insidious Dreams)

Ramp: Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Mind Stone, Thought Vessel, Charcoal Diamond, Lotus Petal, Everflowing Chalice, Chrome Mox, Mox Diamond, Coldsteel Heart

(On a budget? Mind Stone, Coldsteel Heart, Charcoal Diamond, Everflowing Chalice, Coalition Relic, Fractured Powerstone, Prismatic Lens, Fractured Powerstone, Thought Vessel)

Draw: Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Sensei's Divining Top, Scroll Rack, and Asylum Visitor (can top cards you don't want to discard), Library of Leng (tops cards you don't want to discard again... but in a different way), Necropotence

(On a budget? Sign in Blood, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones, Library of Leng, Asylum Visitor, Necropotence, Ancient Craving)

Stax: Sphere of Resistance, Thorn of Amethyst, Lodestone Golem, Damping Matrix, Chains of Mephistopheles, Trinisphere, Tangle Wire, Smokestack, Pox, Liliana of the Veil

(On a budget? use control elements like Doom Blade, and removal in black instead of stax, some of the more budget stax is okay, but generally the more layered stax the better, so the less the worse each is. Removal is a good replacement.)


Drops:

Vicious Rumors, Abyssal Nocturnus, Fell Specter, Guul Draz Specter, Herald of Anguish, Hypnotic Specter, Liliana's Reaver, Myojin of Night's Reach, Needle Specter, Scythe Specter, Sewer Nemesis, Stronghold Rats, Wei Night Raiders, Whispering Specter, Ghoulcaller's Bell, Darksteel Plate, Ordeal of Erebos, Raiders' Wake, Bontu's Last Reckoning, Anvil of Bogardan, Putrefaction, Painful Quandary, Megrim, Fraying Omnipotence, Rise of the Dark Realms, Torment of Hailfire, Liliana Vess.


Not sorry about the long comment ;)

I think the deck could use 1 or 2 removal spells for some threats, and it would help a lot to have Reliquary Tower, Graceful Adept, or Library of Leng, they're not too pricey and I think they could help a fair bit with not having too many cards in hand, kind of like what Spellbook is doing.

I made Tiger Shadow Jutsu with the same boss. My first change was to put in something so i didn't have to discard cards like Library of Leng (I see you have two other cards that do the same thing already).

Once I had played a few times I saw my self getting blocked after the Ninja's were on the board. Aqueous Form, Flitterstep Eidolon, Writ of Passage etc really help.

The creatures that you pop ninjas from can be more deadly than the ninjas. Hostage Taker, Identity Thief etc. They can remove blockers instead of just not getting blocked. I love playing cards from Hostage Taker then putting him back in my hand to play again.

If your opponents are board wiping you can use Reckless Imp with Dash.

Meshuvel thanks for the suggestions. Library of Leng looks awesome and would be perfect! I’m going to toss that in for sure. I have considered Reconnaissance and I like it, it’s def on my possible add list.

Library of Leng is a great card to consider with Varina, it turns her discard into a deck stacking.

Also, might want to consider Reconnaissance - its an older card but lets you keep your Zombies safe during combats.

@carpecanum thanks for the comments. Yeah I enjoy abusing etb effects. Not sure what to cut to squeeze in. I was searching for something exactly like Library of Leng!!! The best I could find in was Brainstorm.I will probably work that trick in. Not sure about dash. I have never used it before but make me think unearth could work well without worrying about hand size then ninja it back to hand to hard cast.

Lazav, the Multifarious.

I like using etb's from creatures then putting them back in my hand with ninjitsu like Puppeteer Clique and Draining Whelk. I needs a couple Stronghold Rats, glad your deck reminded me of those.

The card draw from this boss gets serious what with you also returning cards to your hand so i use transmute to bring out my Thought Vessel from the Dimir Infiltrator. If you put in a Library of Leng you can combo with a Putrid Imp to keep your highest casting cost card on top of your deck.

Reckless Imp is pretty good here, dash means they don't get taken out with a board wipe
