Ninja of the Deep Hours Discussion

xyr0s on Enigma Delver

More library manipulation like Opt or Serum Visions would relieve you from playing the worst of these cards (Lightning Strike, Abrade). You could use a bit more threats (about 12 total) - Ninja of the Deep Hours or Phantasmal Bear, to keep it budget.

As you've been told elsewhere, you need to consider some real card advantage. Tempo isn't very strong in modern, as everything else is so fast.

I'd recommend adding some black for some Bitterblossom, maybe Thieving Sprite or Oona's Blackguard, and switching out Ninja of the Deep Hours for Scion of Oona or Vendilion Clique.

Hey Rhadamanthus, I wanna do a quick check in this. If you attack with an unblocked Master of Cruelties, can you let him do his first strike hit (for 0), then Ninjutsu Ninja of the Deep Hours in for lethal?

It can be activated whenever you have a valid attacking creature that is unblocked. You can use it in declare attackers (after declaring attacks), declare blockers (after blocks have been declared), combat damage, or end of combat. Not before or after.

Of course, if you use it a during combat damage or later the combat damage will be calculated as if the original unblocked creature dealt the damage. IF you look at how the combat damage step works:

510.1 Attacking player tells board how he wants to assign damage. Then the defending player announces.

510.2 The damage is dealt

510.3 You get priority. Wanna ninjutsu it up?

I think the best budget blue deck you can make in Modern is either Delver or Tron.

Tron is trying to assemble the three tron lands Urza's Power Plant, Urza's Tower, and Urza's Mine (they are about a 1$ a piece). With these three lands on the battlefield you can play big creatures like Kozilek, the Great Distortion and Desolation Twin and Bane of Bala Ged and Cyclonic Rift. In the early game you play counters and tempo cards like Condescend, Repeal, and Expedition Map to find tron lands.

Delver is much more spell centric with Delver of Secrets being the all star which flips into Insectile Aberration  Flip. The other creatures are small evasive creatures with Ninja of the Deep Hours, Spellstutter Sprite, Faerie Miscreant, etc... the non creature spells are all tempo related like Vapor Snag, Deprive, Remand, Serum Visions, Opt.

I believe both of these versions can be built for 30$ and be budget competitive with room to grow and acquire more expensive pieces.

Drahydra on Mairsil's interactions with exiled cards

1 month ago

I have a few questions about Mairsil, the Pretender, as the wording is different from cards like him.

1.) If Mairsil eats a Bomat Courier, would he gain the ability to put cards he exiles back into my hand from the "cage"?

2.) Can he use his activated abilities in zones other than the battlefield? I.E. would eating a Ninja of the Deep Hours or a Dregscape Zombie, allow him to use Ninjutsu or Unearth respectively?

Durmij on Jeskai Ninja Value - Beverly Hills Ninja

Thanks, i can't take all the credit though :) Good call on Stony Silence and Rest in Peace, much more value and I don't have to splash the one Stomping Ground

Boros Charm is there for more Snapcaster Mage value, and to give Ninja of the Deep Hours a chance to draw 2 instead of one. I'll play it out and see how it feels though.
