Love the deck! To make it modern legal trade the Gitaxian Probe out for Peek and the Dark Depths and Solemnity for Ethersworn Canonist . This can be another simple lock. I'd also cut the Sigil of the Empty Throne for some type of removal, counterspell, or other cheap creature for the first few turns.

If you plan on leaving it legacy, just cut the Sigil of the Empty Throne for another 0 drop artifact creature such as Phyrexian Walker or even Shield Sphere

Solelyselesnya on Yuriko Turn and Burn - cEDH

Thanks for the detailed comment Hissp! It is very appreciated.

Truthfully, I have found Cabal Therapist to be minimally useful. Yes, it can reset yuriko, but really, what can't? I like the ideal of Sidisi's Faithful . I'll try it out soon as a more immediately impactful replacement.

I've been debating between Dispel and Abjure for this list. Just this last month I've been testing Abjure and it has been performing very well. Cheap, catch-all counters allow the deck to commit to the board more aggressively with less fear, and Abjure has been stellar at filling that role. I think I will officially make the switch.

Sakashima's Student , Mutavault , and Shizo, Death's Storehouse are all in my deck irl but I've somehow forgotten them on this list! You are absolutely right about Sakashima's Student , its a phenomenally versatile ninja. I'll update the list to reflect this.

Full disclosure, I'm not totally sold on Sakashima the Impostor . It tends to be a win more, and as you said, as its usually at its best when you are already in a good board position. I definitely wouldn't run both Sakashima and Spark Double . Its on the chopping block.

I've seen your list, and Entomb + Wonder / Filth looks spicy! I'm guessing the amount of mass-evasion a player will want will depend heavily on their meta composition. If playgroups tend to get clogged up on the ground, then these seems like great inclusions! I am lucky enough that I don't have a hard time connecting with ninjas (always at least one deck that commits minimally to the board), but I think it is great tech to have! That being said, the inclusion of more cheap changelings in Modern Horizons definitely raises my evaluation of cover of darkness.

Mission Briefing seems good. I keep telling myself that Snapcaster Mage is better in this list because he can be replayed with ninjutsu, but I have tended to undervalue scry (in this case surveil) in the past. I'll give this some testing. More brainstorming is always a good thing, and I suppose there is no reason why I couldn't run both.

And finally, Memnite and Phyrexian Walker for the win! (Seriously, every Yuriko player should have these 0-mana creatures in their arsenal).

TerminalMarch on It's Raining Metal!! - Kykar Budget EDH

A decent set of cheap or free artifacts to run would be Herbal Poultice , Phyrexian Walker , and Conjurer's Bauble

Also, while it isn't super cheap (money wise), I would recommend running Wear / Tear in place of Disenchant. Wear / Tear can be picked up for under $2

SynergyBuild on Chulane’s Tale of the Instant Win

So far, while very expensive, Chulane, Teller of Tales's easiest combo is Cloudstone Curio .


The lines are pretty easy. Use all of the one-drop creatures you can, think Llanowar Elves , Mother of Runes , Noble Hierarch , Birds of Paradise , etc. and you can draw your deck as long as you have 2 of them and an untapped land able to cast each of them (2 forests if you have 2 one-drop green creatures.)

Play 1 of the creatures, drawing a card, putting a land into play. Trigger Cloudstone Curio , bouncing the tapped land you used to cast the 1st 1 drop, then when the creature resolves bounce the 2nd 1-drop.

Tap the new untapped land you put into play to cast the 2nd one-drop, drawing a card, putting the land you prior bounced from the Cloudstone Curio into play, bouncing the 2nd land, then when the 2nd creature resolves, return the 1st creature to play.

This loop goes to draw your deck until you hit a 'free', non-artifact creature off of your infinite draw: Cloud of Faeries being the best IMO. It allows you to make 1 mana per 2 cards in your library as you go off, letting you get enough mana to win with Laboratory Maniac in the midst of yout 'storm turn.'


Running Shield Sphere , Endless One , Walking Ballista , Hangarback Walker , Phyrexian Marauder , Ugin's Conjurant , Memnite , Ornithopter , and Phyrexian Walker all work as powerful 0-mana Explore s. Endless One / Ugin's Conjurant work as the non-artifact one-drops for the above combo. Walking Ballista and Hangarback Walker (to a lesser extent) are backup mana dumps for all of the mana this deck can generate as well.

I recommend these highly. Running them, and going hard into the combo I discussed brings other cards higher into value as well:

Trophy Mage , a powerful creature that tutors for Trophy Mage , Trinket Mage tutors a Sol Ring , Chrome Mox , or 0 drop creature like Walking Ballista , giving at worst 2 Explore s for 3 mana or a Explore + Sol Ring . Not bad value on either. Recruiter of the Guard can find Trophy Mage , or almost any dork/value creature, and is just good value too.

Some lists run Spellseeker too, as it can find Eladamri's Call / Worldly Tutor to get any creature, Mystical Tutor to get any instant/sorcery, Enlightened Tutor often for Cloudstone Curio and other artifacts/enchantments, as well as occasionally protection/removal like Swords to Plowshares , Cyclonic Rift , Heroic Intervention , Dovin's Veto , or Nature's Claim .

Just some thoughts.

Hissp on Two Lands One Ninja

Obviously Modern Horizons threw a lot of changes into the list. In my current iteration I'm running 26 creatures + Mutavault :

My ninjitsu enablers are either free ( Memnite , Ornithopter , Phyrexian Walker ) or provide repeatable utility ( Cabal Therapist , Putrid Imp , Sage of Epityr , Sidisi's Faithful ). I don't prioritize evasion at all. I'm also running all 3 1-drop changelings ( Changeling Outcast , Mothdust Changeling ,{Universal Automaton})

I'm running every creature with a ninjitsu cost of 1 or 2 ( Azra Smokeshaper , Ingenious Infiltrator , Mistblade Shinobi , Ninja of the Deep Hours , Sakashima's Student , Skullsnatcher , Walker of Secret Ways ) as well as 3 more expensive ninjas that provide value ( Fallen Shinobi , Mist-Syndicate Naga , Throat Slitter )

The other creatures I'm running either provide incredible ETB value ( Gilded Drake , Spellstutter Sprite , {I would probably run Snapcaster Mage if I had one}) or facilitate team evasion ( Filth , Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive , Wonder .

And of course there's the Dragon Knife itself, Draco :D
