Metallic Mimic Discussion

I highly reccomend Grim Lavamancer, as it adds a lot of range to RDW.

I'd consider something like Browbeat in place of ahn-crop. I'd also much rather see a Metallic Mimic or similar instead of Ghitu Journeymage.

Doublecast is a great spell, and when run alongside Howl of the Horde or similar, you can jam a lot of lightning bolts into a single turn. The big problem is that unless you are running a combo list and spending 6-8 mana, it will always deal less damage than Lava Spike. Reverberate has some added utility in copying your opponents spells, but its not exactly reliable. If you go this route, you want Insult.

Sideboard Skullcrack or Flames of the Blood Hand. Four of. You will need them. There are better guides to RDW out there that can lead you through sideboarding, but it basically boils down to the split between lifegain hate, graveyard hate and artifact hate, as well as ways to play around Leyline of Sanctity.

You are most definitely missing arguably the best card for the deck in Mentor of the Meek. The card draw is phenomenal with Oketra's Monument. To make room, I would drop 2x Benalish Marshal as it counters the Mentor of the Meek ability for most of the creatures. Metallic Mimic should also only be 2x, I think. That would give you 6 cards that can provide either a +1/+1 anthem or counters. That's plenty and will give you one of them at minimum to add to the board later in the game for a fatal swing.

I would also up Oketra's Monument to 4x total. Probably remove Trophy Mage and move Warkite Marauder to the side.

Cool deck! +1 from me! I have a similar deck-- maybe it could give you some ideas? White Monument with a splash of Blue

Those are all some great things to add and to keep in mind! I'm adding them to my star city list right now. I'll drop by my LGS and see what we have in stock and get what I can! I'm also thinking of potentially saving up for a Cavern of Souls just to keep them from getting countered. Potentially gonna get two Metallic Mimic to help buff up the kitties as well. Gonna add the stuff you recommended as well as some Loam Lion and start to sift through what works and what doesn't for me! Thanks again for all the help!

I'm still a bit iffy on what a sideboard would look like for this. We have a ton of burn and stompy at my local FNM so I assume I need to look into cards that give color protection/hexproof.

I quite enjoy my WB vampires deck nothing particularly out there as there is many decks like it Bloodsuckers (updated it from private today). I find this deck can be very effective especially against other aggro decks it is a little slower but has alot of lifegain and also lots of card draw. This allows you to survive and outlast aggro decks and hopefully rush lategame. I have been tring out walk the plank rather than varaska's contempt a bit more due to Ghalta and Shalai (I hat Shalai) and how efficient walk the plank can be.

I find occasionally it can be unreliable as the 4 mana slot is so vital (being stuck on 3 mana can kill you). My version runs quite a few lord effects due to goblin chain whirler I normally side deck some out if they are not playing mono red (that is due to my meta them being so popular). you can make a budget version of the deck and also a rotation proof version.

rotation proof:

Concealed Courtyard out for basics

Fatal Push out for Cast Down (or maybe Walk the Plank)

Gifted Aetherborn out for Dusk Legion Zealot or Adanto Vanguard

Metallic Mimic out for Dusk Legion Zealot (unless you need the lords for chainwhirler)

budget version

make above changes but also swap Vraska's Contempt for Walk the Plank or Never//Return #

I hope this helps I would recommend it as it can be competitive and fun.

Other standard decks I would recommend if you are interested please ask:

Mono Blue standard storm STORM (ish)

(Aetherflux Reservoir :) very fun and is turning out to be quite potent) Rakdos Burn

(Guttersnipe, Shock, Flame of Keld ect.

you probably now know what the deck does already)

I think you're splitting your focus between ETB/Evasion creatures and setting up the top of your library for Yuriko's triggered ability a bit too much.

Cuts I recommend: Metallic Mimic - Is a ninja, buffs ninjas, but no evasion built in so will be harder to trigger Yuriko. You've got enough creature type fixing to gain more benefit off Yuriko triggers than an extra counter.

Kathari Remnant - I feel like most of your cuts are going to come from your 1-3 drops since you want a higher average CMC for Yuriko's triggers, so the cascade will be lackluster.

Amoeboid Changeling - Once one of your board-wide subtype changers hits the board (especially since you're tutoring for them), since this doesn't have evasion, I don't think it'll see much use.

Consign // Oblivion - The bounce is nice, 2 discards from someone is a little meh. But feel like you can just have creatures that bounce your board to gain more benefit like Faerie Impostor.

Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive - Besides herself, you only have 4 creatures in your list with power/toughness 1 that don't already have evasion built in, 3 of which are ninjutsu creatures that will likely be unblocked anyways.

Dragonlord Silumgar - Good CMC for Yuriko's trigger, and a nice ETB effect. But they get the creature back when you ninjutsu him away, and he's a little pricey to tack onto a ninjutsu cost to regain the same target.

Sure! I'd toss in a 4x Merfolk Mistbinder, it is just greaty value. Metallic Mimic also can be useful with the +1/+1 synergies!

Good luck!

Crystal Shard and Erratic Portal are great ways to return your ninjas to your hand at instant speed. I love Dire Undercurrents with ninjutsu since you can easily get both triggers repeatedly. I know tribal cards like Adaptive Automaton and Metallic Mimic seem good to pump your ninjas, but with Yuriko and your ninjas you want to be returning them to your hand to ninjutsu them out again. They won't be around for very long, which means they won't get much of a benefit from those tribal cards, which don't have evasion to help your ninjas get through. Also keep in mind that a small number of ninjas will get the job done just fine; you don't want to many cards that change the creature type of your creatures. They do nothing on their own and card draw or interaction will be better most of the time. Feel free to look at the Yuriko deck on my profile for ideas. Good luck!
