Spire Owl Discussion

Jonas_Poponas how is Sleep perfoming for you? Agreed on Bident/Piracy matter - mostly, because Vandalblast is a thing.

I think you can improve some of the evasive creatures you use for ninjutsu.


Looter il-Kor - you don't rely on him dealing combat damage anyway

Inkfathom Witch - I was playing it, but i have dimir zombies in my playgroup and it just does nothing against them

Prickly Boggart - same problem as witch

Cavern Harpy - how is it working for you? i feel the fact you can't sometimes drop it turn 2 sucks


Sage Owl

Spire Owl

Thalakos Seer

Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive

All of them are evasive, but do smthing when you use them as ninjutsu fodder, except Tetsuko, which gives Yuriko and couple of ninjas unblockable.

PS Ninjas and Owls - my Yuriko version, similar idea, less budget:)

Thanks for showing me Wu Scout. That will be nice in a few decks.

Spire Owl and Owl Familiar for a "playset" of owls.

Have you thought about Thalakos Seer and Insidious Dreams?

Insidious Dreams is arguable better finisher than Doomsday. Thalakos Seer has shadow and payoff when ninjutsu is used on it.

There are some useful changelings (they are ninjas), like: Amoeboid Changeling, Shapesharer, Cairn Wanderer and maybe even Skeletal Changeling

Notable mentions Spire Owl, Sage Owl and Augury Owl

I once built a tribal-bird pauper deck; and the cheap cards from there that I could recommend are Augury Owl, Sage Owl, and Spire Owl.

But since your working on budget and not rarity, I think that you could fit in a Land Tax if you took out your six 2-4 dollar nonbasics.

To make it modern legal, replace the Spire Owl with Sage Owl, and Memory Lapse with Lapse of Certainty.

All of your critters fly, so why not Favorable Winds or Gravitational Shift?

Though, I feel like Unstable Mutation would be better paired with Blighted Agent, who would kill the opponent if left unanswered.

Perhaps Sage Owl instead of Triton Shorestalker for more filtering (and there is also Spire Owl :) )
