No special rules. If you're attacking with Smuggler's Copter (in which case it has to be a creature) and it isn't blocked, you can return it to your hand as part of the ninjutsu cost of Mistblade Shinobi. If your opponent has a Smuggler's Copter that's a creature (perhaps they crewed it to block something) and your Mistblade Shinobi deals combat damage to them, you can return the copter to their hand with the triggered ability. If your opponent has a Smuggler's Copter that isn't a creature (maybe they have nothing to crew it with), you cannot return it to their hand with Mistblade Shinobi's triggered ability, because it can only target creatures.

Are there any special rules on how ninjas such as Mistblade Shinobi interacts with Smuggler's Copter?

Thanks for checking out my deck. Yours looks pretty good too.

I'm currently debating on whether to keep Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive or not in mine for the same reasons I think you should take another look at him. Currently including himself you have 7-ish creatures that he interacts with, some of which have flying. I didn't count ones that say "can't be blocked" already. He does do the all important task of making some ninjas unblockable like Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow, Mistblade Shinobi, Skullsnatcher, and Walker of Secret Ways. So just something to think about, I haven't decided if his impact is good enough as of yet in my own deck...

You might consider a spot for Fireshrieker or Grappling Hook to double up on the ninja combat damage triggers. I found Fireshrieker quite handy back when I played a 60 card ninja deck. Of course if you don't want to deal with equipping Strionic Resonator essentially does the same thing.

I think it's great, but maybe I need a bit more control, such as return to hand. Honestly, Mistblade Shinobi is the best version of that, but anything else like maybe some sort of cheap and efficient Disperse? So we can disrupt their tempo.

ZorrosRage on Faerie(ly) Rogueish

I'm not a fan of Aether Vial in this deck. I usually really like vial in combat tricks decks like Humans or Merfolk. Feel like those 4 spots can have control or destruction cards. All of your good combat trick faeries have flash so just feels like its not as good since its a fairly low cost deck that you are not going to last second buff or anything. I think Fatal Push should be at 4

Maybe add Spell Snare or Countersquall maybe alsoCast Down to main or side

Inquisition of Kozilek possibly in the side for a discard setup

A fun faerie setup could be using Quickling and Mistblade Shinobi it's a fun trick to mess with your opponent.

Also we have to be mindful with Oona's Prowler not sure how much it helps the popular deck around Hollow One since it is becoming very popular

ClockworkSwordfish on Does a (token) copy of ...

To clarify, the reason the token doesn't get to damage is because it isn't attacking. Mistblade Shinobi clearly states you put it into play tapped and attacking. Flameshadow Conjuring just puts a token with haste into play. While it is a copy of the Shinobi, it doesn't copy the fact that he was already attacking (nor would it copy the fact that he's tapped, enchanted etc.)

Since you already had to attack with the Slither Blade in order to ninjutsu the Shinobi in, it's too late to declare an attack with your new, non-attacking token.

I have Flameshadow Conjuring in play. I attack with Slither Blade, which isn't blocked, then ninjutsu in a Mistblade Shinobi. I then activate Flameshadow Conjuring's 1 red mana ability, to copy the ninja. The question is, does the copy deal combat damage as well?
