Silent-Blade Oni Discussion

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.

Hey DrkNinja,

it's a bit ironic to assemble the Avengers (aka The Gatewatch) to help to construct a Bolas-deck, but nevertheless here are my ideas:

First of all, I would discard :) the whole Nekusar-wheel-theme. Nekusar, the Mindrazer decks just do it better anyways and playing Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul, Jace's Archivist or Windfall in your deck has some drawbacks. While they're great to enable your plan of using the opponents' graveyards, your decks' cmc is not low enough to exploit those cards. Additionally, your opponents would get a significant amount of cards out of it, too, which also undermines the whole handcontrol theme of your deck: What's the matter of making them discard through Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip, when you're helping them to refill their hands the next turn? Cards like Megrim, Liliana's Caress or Fell Specter would have to go as well because they're only effective with the aforementioned cards.

So my proposal is to focus on discard and control. Cards like Painful Quandary, The Eldest Reborn, Waste Not, Oppression and Chains of Mephistopheles fit well and should stay. You could add Skull Rend or Liliana's Specter. You could also add cards that let your commander re-enter the battlefield like Ghostly Flicker. Some ninjas like Silent-Blade Oni or Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni do not only fit your theme but let you cast your commander again.

To get more information about your opponents' hands you could play Telepathy or Glasses of Urza. I usually go with Glasses of Urza alongside Trinket Mage.

You have to strengthen your control over the graveyards when you're making people discard. The Scarab God is already good here. But you need some more graveyard-hate like Relic of Progenitus or Phyrexian Furnace which give you a bit of a choice what to exile. Don't play Leyline of the Void in here.

I'd also add Solemn Simulacrum like multimedia proposed.

So far I mentioned 8 cards which should be cut, so here are 22 more: Kess, Dissident Mage, Nightveil Specter, Mind's Dilation, Omniscience, Torment of Hailfire, Disrupt Decorum, Entreat the Dead, Anvil of Bogardan, Go for the Throat, Blasphemous Act, Stunning Reversal, Thrilling Encore, Leyline of Anticipation (most of the permanents don't have to be played at instant speed. Casting leyline is just doing nothing for the turn), Bloodchief Ascension, Countersquall, Desertion, Preordain, Thoughtseize, Library of Leng, Disciple of Bolas, Hour of Devastation, Tormenting Voice.

That's all for now. Good luck with your deck!

Sorry. That last comment was bad let me try again:

I would remove at first glance:

Azorius Chancery Dimir Aqueduct Forge of Heroes Orzhov Basilica Conundrum Sphinx Geode Golem Jeskai Infiltrator Loyal Subordinate Night Incarnate Ninja of the Deep Hours Phyrexian Delver Silent-Blade Oni Sphinx of Uthuun Varina, Lich Queen Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow Skull Storm AEthermage's Touch

These I chose either for the simple fact they don't go for the plan or are too slow. There are better cards that aren't that expensive.
