Mistblade Shinobi Discussion

Disfigure on Ninjutsu, Art of Tokyo

That makes sense on why I was unfamiliar with Sakashima's Student. Mistblade Shinobi comes down a turn earlier than Throat Slitter(assuming you have a t1 creature) but has different restrictions. Nether Traitor can't block either and Vampire Cutthroat doesn't stack up to your other cards in the deck. Then again, if you are using creatures to block you aren't maximizing the potential of Ninjutsu and more specifically Throat Slitter and Mistblade Shinobi.

Tormented Soul is good to activate Ninjutsu. Mistblade Shinobi and Sakashima's Student seem good in certain match ups.

very well, as there are many times in the mid/late game that Mistblade Shinobi just can't get through or when the only creatures on their board have strong enter the battlefield effects. Smuggler's Copter basically turns it into a flying more powerful Ninja of the Deep Hours for combat. alternative i've bounced Smuggler's Copter to activate a ninja instead of a fairy for when the fairy count for Spellstutter Sprite really matters.

Thanks for the response. I haven't taken this list out for a spin in a while, as the local metagame has really turned against blue decks, but I've been meaning to trial Smuggler's Copter. How do you find it pairs with Mistblade Shinobi?

Mistblade Shinobi, Ninja of the Deep Hours, Cephalid Constable could be good. Especially with your commander

Aether Gale, AEther Mutation, Alexi, Zephyr Mage, Displacement Wave, Distorting Wake, Profaner of the Dead, Reality Strobe lol do this!, Scourge of Fleets, Words of Wind (very good if you start swarming with edric/bident of thassa out)

you might want Lifegift as well, people be gunning for blue decks!

Icbrgr on What determines the order of ...

Alright I am playtesting a deck I made and need some help with a scenario i ran into..

If i have The Rack and Oona's Blackguard and Triton Shorestalker with a +1/+1 counter on him and Mistblade Shinobi with Aqueous Form attached and cast Distortion Strike Targeting my Ninja of the Deep Hours...

Then swing/attack with everything with no response/declared blockers from the opponent and my opponent has no cards in hand at this time ...

What determines the order of all the effects that take place?

also, if my opponent has no cards in hand when I attack... but Mistblade Shinobi returns a creature to their hand... will Triton Shorestalker with a +1/+1 counter on him cause the opponent to discard that creature resulting in the opponents upkeep for The Rack to deal 3 damage? or when all the damage is done then creature then goes into the opponents hand and and no discard occurs resulting in The Rack doing 2 damage?

Thanks in advance!

very cool +1 from me... cool idea with Fireshrieker... i bet it is really nasty with Mistblade Shinobi! I may have to try that out in my ninja deck.

Ankrist - They do seem potentially powerful. The problem is, I can see a lot of situations where they don't work:

  1. I'm getting blocked
  2. The creature they aren't blocking is owned by the opponent
  3. I've traded a Mistblade Shinobi to my opponent and now he's using it to get his own stuff back!
  4. I'm well behind on board and self-bounce seems like suicide

The Skyfisher is risky enough. The Ninjas are more well suited to an aggressive tempo deck or highly evasive midrange.
