GoblinsBeatElves on Assassin tribal

Scarblade Elite is a card that is actually assassin tribal. You could try Nekrataal, Thrill-Kill Assassin, Silumgar Assassin, or Garza's Assassin.

I like the idea of assassin tribal. Nice job!

I have my own B/G Assassin deck (which happens to be modern-legal as well, although I didn't aim for it), and I found the natural synergy between Garza's Assassin and Scarblade Elite to be very effective. Even regardless of the synergy, Garza's is often very helpful in getting rid of a threat quickly, since it is not hindered by summoning sickness in killing off the creature. Could consider Undying Evil for added efficiency.

There's also the flagbearers: Coalition Flag Coalition Honor Guard Standard Bearer But they don't really have synergy with each other. You might be able to pull some shenanigans if you give a flagbearer hexproof or protection with a changeling out though.

Thelon of Havenwood, Fungal Bloom, Sporesower Thallid, Savage Thallid and Pallid Mycoderm are all listed as saprolings. I don't know if you merged fungus and saproling intentionally, but if you did it might make sense to change saproling tech to saproling/fungus tech.

Scarblade Elite is another great tribal card you might want to try. Besides this: very cool list.

Hi seshiro_of_the_orochi, thanks for the suggestions!

This deck tries to control the board with removal spells and removal effects from the creatures (Scarblade Elite helped by Nameless Inversion and other assassins).

The deck's problem it's speed - and you gave a nice idea: uses infect to cut to half the effort. Using more copies of Ashes of the Fallen can help the use of Tainted Strike and Phyresis once in graveyard.

I'll try this way and post the results!

Hey there! Thanks for looking at my deck (Let 'em Die [Primer: Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker])! Here's some general suggestions for you:

First off, creatures don't come back with Shirei when equiped with Skullclamp, since it boosts their power. And no Ashnod's Altar or Viscera Seer? Those two sac outlets are amazing here.

Pawn of Ulamog and Sifter of Skulls are amazing token producers. The eldrazi tokens they make can be used for mana ramping, and can sacrifice themselves for death triggers. Neat! I'm testing out the Fabricate abilities of Weaponcraft Enthusiast and Marionette Master as well.

Smothering Abomination, Harvester of Souls, and Grim Haruspex are great for generating card draw for every creature that dies. Vampiric Rites is a 1-drop enchantment (kinda hard to remove) that gives you card draw. Maybe take out the one-time use spells like Read the Bones for these.

I personally like Deathgreeter over Bottle Gnomes, and it has pretty consistently done a higher amount of life gain. Zulaport Cutthroat is a must-have, IMO. It's often my quickest wincon. Gray Merchant of Asphodel and Falkenrath Noble are good for this too, if you have ways to reduce their power to recur them.

You do have a fair number of things with >1 power, or that boost their power. I might recommend Plagued Rusalka, Fume Spitter, and/or Necropede as ways to reduce the power of your bigger creatures, or as a form of removal against your opponents. Maybe instead of Drakestown Forgotten.

You have a lot of discard effects (which is good!), but several of them are sorcery speed (Sadistic Hypnotist, Brain Weevil, Augur of Skulls) or need to be paid for (Drainpipe Vermin). Or that don't recur at all Sadistic Augermage. I might recommend more stuff like Noxious Toad, Mesmeric Fiend, or Disciple of Phenax. That can be used on each opponents turn.

Scarblade Elite doesn't work unless you have another Assassin in graveyard, and only up to 4 times max, and doesn't even recur itself under Shirei. And I like Dutiful Attendant over things like Death Denied or Gravepurge. Maybe look into Living Death as well?

Hope that's not too much info! Welcome to the Perpetual Weenie Murder Club!

The Urborg Panther, Breathstealer and Feral Shadow combo isn't going to come off often at all, and those creatures are a bit sub-par otherwise, so I'd drop those. Knight of Dusk is also a bit overpriced, its essentially going to end up being a 2/2 unblockable for 3, except slightly worse. I'd replace those with things like Tormented Soul, the dauthi, an Ornithopter, or a Signal Pest to trigger your commander's ninjutsu. For defenses, you might like Ophiomancer and Royal Assassin, both of which should usually outperform Wall of Corpses, and the latter of which would help out your Scarblade Elite. I'd also consider putting in a Ruthless Ripper, which is good either for defense or for triggering ninjutsu.

You also might consider other stuff that like creatures dying, such as Toshiro Umezawa, Harvester of Souls, and Reaper from the Abyss.
