Slither Blade can't be blocked

if your wiin con is through combat damage maybe look into some unblockable creatures such as Slither Blade , or Triton Shorestalker to help better confirm damage but also not be a big enough threat to pull out removal spells on their own. Also I feel that with the artifact ramp you have and the overall average cmc of 3.36 (as of me writing the comment) you could probably get away with like 35 or 36 lands if you want to be extra safe. Also you could cut Languish for somthing cheaper like Blasphemous Act .

you need some cheap unblockable creatures, Changeling Outcast , Dimir Infiltrator , Gudul Lurker , Phantom Ninja , Slither Blade , Triton Shorestalker .

some people like cheap 1/1 flyers, Faerie Seer

There are some good changelings that count as ninjas, Graveshifter , Venomous Changeling

Spark Double can copy Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow as it won't be legendary, allowing for huge damage potential.

Cunning Evasion protects form blockers

Neurok Stealthsuit is great for protecting single targets

@ValasCladdana I didnt know about Moonblade Shinobi thats certainly a cool one! For this decklist being a primer I do know that ive fallen behind and am extremely dated since the release of Modern Horizons and havent quite gotten around to updating this Primers description/options section.

The actual decklist displayed is what I actually run/play against friends IRL; Slither Blade is easily the better choice over Triton Shorestalker I just wasnt very active during the Amonkhet/Hour of Devastation timeframe and havent bothered to buy the singles yet.

Slither Blade over Triton Shorestalker . Sometimes that one extra toughness can mean life or death.

Possibly drop Walker of Secret Ways in favor of the new ninjas... Moonblade Shinobi might be a better fit

Waterveil Cavern is another, super budget dual land, which might help with the consistency that comes to mind.

Ornithopter might be an ideal replacement for the Slither Blade at roughly the same price point; the 0 drop cost on it will let you get out an outcast and thopter on turn 1, then swing with both on turn 2 and jutsu in an infiltrator, drawing 2 cards and allowing you to replay your thopter for free. From what I've seen so far, this is probably the single strongest turn 2 the tribe has, and it is super budget still. :D

Silent-Blade Oni has been a pretty sub par card in my testing thus far, as by the time I can drop it my opponent's rarely have cards to hit, or they have an instant they cast in response to the trigger so they have nothing. The Mistblade CAN push something into their hand, but all the same the slot may be better spent elsewhere -- maybe bumping up the land count to 20? Your curve is low, but in testing my black/red Vampire deck a while back I found that budget dual color landbases can be quite demanding, even with low curves.

Though they don't do the same thing, Ninja of the Deep Hours might be a viable replacement for the Fallen Shinobi , as it increase your chances of drawing into other cards you need and works better with a smaller mana base.

Hey, really well made Commander deck, but it's only 94 cards :)

Thalakos Seer is quite good with Ninjutsu, getting value with Yuriko. Ninja of the Deep Hours , Higure, the Still Wind and Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni are good Ninjas, worth playing with Yuriko. Higure is great with Arcane Adaptation because then it can tutor for any creature in your library since all creatures are considered Ninjas.

All the low mana cost unblockable creatures and flying creatures are good to get a fast Yuriko onto the battlefield. Unblockable: Slither Blade , Triton Shorestalker , Mist-Cloaked Herald , Gudul Lurker , Dimir Infiltrator , Tormented Soul . Flying: Mausoleum Wanderer , Pteramander , Jace's Phantasm . Thada Adel, Acquisitor has a good ability for multiplayer Commander since most opponents decks have artifacts. Fabricate or Trinket Mage are worth playing just to tutor for Top. Good luck with your deck.

If i were you, i would get rid of the banneret. its got some value dont get me wrong but everything already costs like 2 or 3. if you swap it for Slither Blade or Vampire Cutthroat then you wouldnt really need it.

personally i would run Countersquall of like a 2 main and 2 in side but thats mainly cause my meta has like 80% either esper or jeskai control bullshit.

and i would do Remand over mana leak cause its more card draw. and would also do Lurking Informant . Its basically a lantern control variant that is absolutely devastating if used right.

also personally i would do Dismember over go for the throat but hey theres like 4 different options just kinda depends what you like

Sygg, River Cutthroat is a pretty good card to that allows more card draw easily. Rogues have some of the best card draw that you can get aside from merfolk and is a really underrated tribe but really good.

Grimoire Thief is also a really good card if you looking for a more midrange option instead of aggro but even if it is aggro would atleast run some in the side just incase.

I think Invisible Stalker is much better than Inkfathom Infiltrator because the stalker has a lot more evasión , not being able to be targeted by any burn spell or removal unless it is a Wrath of God , basically it wont die unless you block with it because you're desperate to survive (you cant block with inkfathom infiltrator).

Slither Blade is better than Prickly Boggart , 1 more thoughtness and is truly unblockable

Maybe Frogtosser Banneret ?

You can try cards with changeling .

You may add something for late game that gets bonuses from tribals decks like Door of Destinies , Coat of Arms , Adaptive Automaton , Metallic Mimic , Stoneforge Masterwork (i think this one is the best because most of your creatures are unblockable and is very fast , and if you add Invisible Stalker it is almost impossible to get rid of it , while the infathom will probably die instantly when you equip the artifact to it)
