Also, regarding Royal Assassin, the cost would be and the effect would be "destroy target tapped creature." Nothing ambiguous here. :)

I, too, could be wrong, but wouldn't the "once each turn" be part of the ability? It's not like Kraj only gains part of the ability, he gains the whole thing.

If you had a Royal Assassin, he would still only be able to kill tapped creatures, for example.

Leon9358 I switched Royal Assassin to Earwig Squad and Doom Blade to Go for the Throat what do you think ?

And cancel is just plain bad there are way better options Royal Assassin just looks like a bad card

Spenzerr I'm not going to replace my Royal Assassin with straght kill spells, at least for the time being. Also, Pestermite hasn't got cipher, so I'm not going for it either. But the other ones are interesting, thanks :-)

Have you thought about Marang River Prowler? I think that would be better than Inkfathom Infiltrator because it gets cheaper with Frogtosser Banneret and can also come back from the graveyard. Also I think the Royal Assassin needs to be just a straight up removal spell like Grasp of Darkness or Fatal Push. Maybe also some utility with a Bident of Thassa. Pestermite would probably be better replacing another creature and Hands of Binding.

Yeah, I designed this to be as competitive as possible. You can replace the expensive cards with budget replacements.

Bident of Thassa is VERY GOOD. Repeatable card draw is nice. The second effect can be useful (Ex: They have a Royal Assassin and they are holding it back as defense but you can make it attack and block it to death).

My drakes are my bombs. If not, Blatant Thievery, Bribery, Vedalken Shackles.

Runechanter's pike can be your finisher if you like since it is cheap. I also reuse Snapcaster Mage with Riptide Laboratory
