lagotripha on Blue/black modern budget that isn't …

On a 50-70 budget, I reccomend focussing spending on lands. Your spell selection will be good so working around that with a card advantage tribe like ninjas is a solid plan.

River of Tears is cheap and modern legal, and it lets you t1 duress, t2 mana leak, or t1 Changeling Outcast, t2 Ingenious Infiltrator/Ninja of the Deep Hours/Walker of Secret Ways.

U/B has Sunken Ruins which fixes a lot of problems with budget manabases. It can have trouble in a deck with checklands, but still works good when you upgrade, which checklands don't- grab checks and painlands if you are gonna stay budget, or filters and shocks if you are gonna look to upgrade eventually.

Card advantage from ninjas also helps smooth out draws, while 1-1 trading with counterspells/hand pruning gets value and limits threats. Exactly how you balance those things is a meta call- just make sure you have answers for those turns 1-2 creatures and you'll do great - even if its just Unsummon.

Hello,

Your deck looks interesting ! I will try a ninja deck soon so I'll probably take some ideas from your list.

You should consider Ninja of the Deep Hours the buddy of Ingenious Infiltrator. Also maybe as sideboard card Murderous Rider to deal with planeswalker instead of Murder.

Also since I have too cards from modern horizons I will give a try with Cunning Evasion.

Rogue's Gloves, Looter il-Kor, Duskmantle Seer, Ninja of the Deep Hours. I've been a big fan of Endless Atlas especially in red and white decks that lack card draw.

Update:

I've added in the remaining two early ramp creatures, as well as the Umbra and Infiltrator. I've also added in Sword and Climb to speed up the counters on Ukkima.

Champion of Lambholt --> Krosan Wayfarer

Herald of Secret Streams --> Deathrite Shaman

Renata, Called to the Hunt --> Sword of Truth and Justice

Master Biomancer --> Hadana's Climb  Flip

Invisible Stalker --> Dimir Infiltrator

Ninja of the Deep Hours --> Snake Umbra

I'll keep you posted on more developments if I find more issues and great cards to use in the future. I'm not entirely sold on Climb yet for example, but time will tell how good it is.

Cheers!

I'm surprised to see no Ninja of the Deep Hours as Ingenious Infiltrators 5-8 (that also combos well with the Infiltrator). Any reason for not running them? I think it might be better than all 4 Fallen Shinobi - maybe 2-2?

From a bit of playtesting, it really seems that the secondary game plan is underperforming. Getting more evasive creatures and going wider is nice for resilience in more casual games, and there is a good argument for keeping the deck like this in the interest of managing the power level a bit. I do have some thought on how we might up the aggression a bit though, do tell me what you think about my thoughts if you are interested!

Underperforming cards include: Fathom Mage, Master Biomancer, Renata, Called to the Hunt, Herald of Secret Streams, Champion of Lambholt (the plan of spreading counters around seems to slow and fragile), Slither Blade, Invisible Stalker (these creatures don't add any additional utility, and we have other evasive creatures that can take Ukkima's place in a crisis), Ninja of the Deep Hours, Ingenious Infiltrator (bouncing Ukkima is nice, but taking away the combat damage is very much a feel bad) and Edric, Spymaster of Trest (seems a bit slow, but probably has more potential).

What we need most is clearly more efficient ways to grow to 10 power. I'm considering cards like Giant Growth, Scale Up, Vines of Vastwood and Invigorate.

We also could use even more one mana ramping. Deathrite Shaman and Krosan Wayfarer seems like the best options to me.

We need some more card draw if we take ou the ninjas, and Snake Umbra seems like a good card draw replacement, as does Hunter's Insight.

We could also use the additional infect enablers in Glistening Oil, Grafted Exoskeleton and perhaps even Corrupted Conscience, but it may be more efficient to just add some tutors here instead, Demonic Tutor, Scheming Symmetry, Dizzy Spell and Dimir Infiltrator would be good choices in that case (without completely busting the bank).

Taking all this into consideration I may soon do the following switches:

Invisible Stalker --> Dimir Infiltrator

Slither Blade --> Dizzy Spell

Ninja of the Deep Hours --> Snake Umbra

Ingenious Infiltrator --> Hunter's Insight

Herald of Secret Streams --> Deathrite Shaman

Champion of Lambholt --> Krosan Wayfarer

Renata, Called to the Hunt --> Scale Up

Master Biomancer --> Vines of Vastwood

Fathom Mage --> Demonic Tutor

Simic Growth Chamber --> Scheming Symmetry

Dispel --> Fierce Guardianship

Replace 3 swamps and an island with Mana Leak s or Counterspell s. Add Dismember for removal and Ninja of the Deep Hours for card draw.

I would add a set of unblockable blue one-drops like Slither Blade to make sure that you can ninjustu early. If you've got the cash, other good ninjas include Higure, the Still Wind , Ninja of the Deep Hours , and Throat Slitter . I would also think you'd want some removal in there somewhere.
