Silent-Blade Oni Discussion

Jaypay1994 on Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge

As a fellow jeleva player, i think what the deck wants is more access to haste. Urabrask is cool, but costly and doesn't normally come out before Jeleva. Dragon Tempest, Swiftfoot Boots, Hanweir Battlements, Flamekin Village, Break Through the Line, and Hall of the Bandit Lord are all great options that are cheap. You want to make sure you can curve into Jeleva perfectly. Get a ramp spell and a haste source immediately and suddenly you're in business.

another suggestion i might add is to consider ways to remove Jeleva yourself. I personally run five boardwipes to give me a better chance at clearing the board and giving me the opportunity to recast Jeleva for more value later on or next turn. also consider sacrifice outlets as a good, reliable way to get rid of Jeleva. High Market is great but consider Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, and other sac outlets to consistently remove her.

Additionally, i'm not crazy about some of the creature you have in the deck. The more creatures there are, the better chance you have of whiffing on a Jeleva cast. I'd focus it down to a couple creatures that will help your deck excel. Galvanoth is great to cheat out your spells, but you could probably cut down on some creatures in exchange for more utility pieces for your deck. Swarm Intelligence is a powerhouse card that could easily replace a creature. Silent-Blade Oni is a great "Gotcha!" card that with let you sneak in to steal a card (since no one ever blocks Jeleva, and she naturally has flying.) Wildfire Eternal is an absolute must have for the deck. Being able to cheat out multiple spells in a turn between Jeleva and Wildfire Eternal is back-breaking for the opposition.

Finally, consider more ramp! There are a lot of great ramps spells to add. The Talismans, Fellwar Stone, and others will make the deck more consistent in making the deck function more quickly and getting Jeleva out on turn 2 or three is an awesome feeling.

These are all my opinions, but i hope they help. :)

Thanks for the help! I opened a box of Ixalan recently, and I was wondering where to put Thaumatic Compass  Flip anyways. Quicksand will likely go out in favor of a bounce and Compass. Although I like Silent-Blade Oni, it's kinda high on my curve, but I'll add it nonetheless. Rhystic cave was just something lying around that I felt like using, it's definitely not the best. I'll try and rework my manabase, I've noticed decks that have lower land count struggle more.

At first glance, the first thing I'd suggest is to add in Silent-Blade Oni. That card is super cool, and it does exactly what your deck wants to do. The only bad point is the cmc, but it does have Ninjutsu, if that changes anything. Also, Baleful Strix. It's a fantastic staple in any UB deck.

Quicksand and Saprazzan Skerry are also some lands I'd cut; I'd suggest maybe Sunken Ruins or Dimir Aqueduct over Skerry, maybe even add one or both of the vivid lands for your colors (Vivid Marsh/Vivid Creek).

Thaumatic Compass  Flip, I'd say, is a great upgrade to Quicksand. Maybe switch Dimir Locket for Thaumatic Compass, and switch Quicksand for, say, Command Tower, Temple of Deceit, or Reliquary Tower. I'd also cut Rhystic Cave - maybe replace it with Exotic Orchard or Forbidden Orchard.

Morphic Pool, too, might be good to add, but that's sorta dependent on your playgroup.

I like what you're trying to do with this. My friend have a ST deck too. A few improvements you could make is to take out some of the less useful creatures like Magus of the Balance and Silent-Blade Oni and replace them with Wrath of God and Day of Judgment because otherwise your deck will struggle with creature heavy decks. Adding in Descend upon the Sinful for an Exile effect is probably also a good idea. Swords to Plowshares is a cheap removal you're missing. It's the best removal spell ever printed. Personally I'd swap it for Condemn as that requires something to attack first. Hero's Downfall is another good one to add because it's just a better version of Murder and it pretty much a dollar rare.

Sylvanrush Feel free to take a look at my brew Yuriko Ninja Hack for inspiration.

How is Amoeboid Changeling working for you? I'm also curious about the more expensive ninjas like Throat Slitter, Okiba-Gang Shinobi, Silent-Blade Oni, and Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni. I think you may be headed down a more ninja tribal focused route, but I'd love to know how they've performed or if you've found them slow.

PTsmitty on Ninja Upgrades/Binder for sale/trade

I recently took apart the planechase anthology decks so I have a few of the ninja cards people have been getting for their Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow decks. I have:
Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni
Sakashima's Student
2x Ninja of the Deep Hours
Walker of Secret Ways
Higure, the Still Wind
Mistblade Shinobi
Throat Slitter
Okiba-Gang Shinobi
Silent-Blade Oni

I have noticed while making this thread that the hyperlink is not reflecting the updated price for several of the cards so check on the TCGplayer website will be needed. The rest of my binder is for sale as well as long as I receive a fair offer based on the TCGplayer pricing. As always, I am willing to explore trades as well. My biggest wants right now are Surgical Extraction, Blackcleave Cliffs, and Leyline of the Void. Just let me know if we can work anything out.
