Cloudius on Luckyennett Dip!

+1 Cause we simply love Yennett and the exhilaration or flipping over the top card to see what we can cast for free!

I run a home-brewed Creatureless Yennett Spellslinger deck. It is fairly consistent and threatens to win, if unanswered, usually by Turns 4 - 6.


We Love Freebies! *Primer*

Here're some more cards that allow you to manipulate the top of your library - Conch Horn , Dimir Machinations , Penance , Scroll Rack .

Liliana Vess is awesome in this deck as she allows us to tutor a card to the top of the library. Mystical Tutor , Personal Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are great tutors in this category too.

Leaving the link to my deck here so we can trade pointers. Feel free to leave any comments, suggestions or give an upvote on my deck page too. Cheers!

Also, Personal Tutor could have a place in this deck. But again, I don't know what to cut to justify the addition.

Out Personal Tutor Blighted Bat Careful Study Frantic Search Sleight of Hand

In Mana Drain Arcane Denial Shred Memory Mistcaller Narcomoeba

This deck has been goldfishing between turn 3-6 pretty normally, but with most cEDH decks pushing those turn 3 wins, its becoming more important to hold up more interaction. I've swapped out some hard draw for more counterspells, which should help us get to our combo window as well as stop other players in a pod from snagging that vic. Blighted Bat turned out to be too niche, and there are almost always other ways of reaching a vic when the Bat is open to us, and its a complete dead draw. Personal Tutor was a neat way to fetch Ad Naus, but the replacement Shred Memory is better aimed towards our combo pieces, and has reactive uses against other decks as well. Personal tutor simply fell short when compared to Mystical Tutor , and I never want to telegraph my play by putting Ad Naus on the top deck and then passing (Myst tut avoids this by having instant speed and can also grab instants). Mistcaller is an interesting add right now, token decks aren't running rampant but you do see Kiki combos in decks such as Blood Pod, and you see Dualcaster Mage combos in mono R value sometimes ( Dualcaster Mage + Twinflame is not a lot of slots, most decks can fit it pretty ez if they want). Mistcaller s primary role is to be a sacrifice outlet for Lazav, identified during testing how painful it is to acquire infinite mana with no outlet. Narcomoeba I'm on the fence about, because it is painful to have it in hand, and with less hand discard a la Careful Study we may end up hard casting it sometimes. Only requiring 2 critters for Dread Return when we are gravey flipping is a huge boon though, and testing will reveal if it deserves its slot.

I found the secret to a quicker Yuriko deck is top deck manipulation. Here is my package for that: 1x Augury Owl 1x Insidious Dreams 1x Lim-Dul's Vault 1x Mystical Tutor 1x Personal Tutor 1x Sage Owl 1x Sensei's Divining Top 1x Vampiric Tutor

I would definitely swap out your Diabolic Tutor for at least Mystical tutor, and budget depending, the other 2 I listed as well. Maybe Crystal Ball but I find it too slow.

You could also focus the deck more by taking out the graveyard recur. I would also add more 1 cmc unblockables to enable all your ninjustu ninjas. Here's my decklist: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/hits-you-with-ninjutsu-yuriko-edh/ It's very focused on what Yuriko wants to do.

So, you have Ad Nauseam and Angel's Grace . Cool. What's the game plan from there? Draw your whole library, sure. Then what? Play Laboratory Maniac ? Well, you can't actually win with that alone, because you'll then die as a state-based action during the next upkeep. You'd have to save a Ponder , Preordain , or Brainstorm . That's 10 mana to go off--not exactly great for a 2-card combo. Sure, you have Reliquary Tower to not have to draw your whole library, but you'd probably still just kill yourself, all the same. And I wouldn't really recommend using Ad Nauseam any other time, frankly--you have a bad curve for it, with a number of 5 drops, 6 drops, and a 9 drop. Also, you're only playing 23 artifacts, including your commander. I'd recommend playing at least 25.

I see you're also running Dramatic Scepter, Top + Future Sight + Sculptor, and Paradox Engine . That's all well and good, but I don't really see the payoff apart from Blind Obedience . That's a whole ton of combo pieces to put together--not great.

Cut Ward of Bones , Consecrated Sphinx , Darksteel Forge , Armageddon , Dissipate , Phyrexian Arena , and Perplex . Put in Static Orb , Shimmer Myr , Winter Orb , Tangle Wire , Grafdigger's Cage , Pongify , and Terminus . Considering you're running Mystical Tutor , Personal Tutor , Sensei's Divining Top , Brainstorm , and Future Sight , it shouldn't be that hard to miracle it.

If you want extreme consistency maybe add more tutors. Mystical Tutor and Personal Tutor can find Doomsday . Insidious Dreams is an instant and can find any card(s) you need.

Hello deadmanwaltzing,

I do not have Time Spiral & Timetwister & Transmute Artifact . Should i remove Personal Tutor since it's only interest is in this configuration to seek for Creature removal or other tutor ?

Thanks you for your list and your help !

Hi there! My Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow is part ninja tribal, part topdeck matters, and it is aggresive enough to win turn 5-6 (no infinite combos). Goal of the deck is to show fat cmc cards from the top with Yuriko or other ninjas (or creature type shenanigans) and kill the table with Yuriko's ability.

To kill the table, you need to have 3 triggers and tutor 3 cards. Insidious Dreams is the best way to tutor. Some combination of Lim-Dul's Vault Mystical Tutor Vampiric Tutor Personal Tutor Imperial Seal and Brainstorm Scroll Rack

Note that most of those can and should be played instant speed with yuriko triggers already on the stack. You tutor for: Commit / Memory Temporal Trespass Blinkmoth Infusion Draco Treasure Cruise Draco and Blinkmoth Infusion should go last, unless you go for the win, as they are unplayable. 30 damage to each opp with just 2 triggers is really fun.
