Sun Quan, Lord of Wu Discussion

@Kederekt Thank you for suggestions. Archetypes have too weak body and they are more supportive. Playing them without cascade doesn't change much on the board. I already got trample enablers (eg. Pathbreaker Ibex or Kessig Wolf Run) or even better evade (eg. Sun Quan, Lord of Wu or Rogue's Passage).

I had a deck like this back in 2013 when Arcane Adaptation wasn't arround. These two were really good: Unnatural Selection Imagecrafter

Also prowl spells work with Ultimus as he is a Rogue: Notorious Throng Knowledge Exploitation

You are also missing 4 lands: Mishra's Factory Blinkmoth Nexus Elephant Graveyard Swarmyard

For bonus points I used: Sun Quan, Lord of Wu - best way is to finish them off with fish riding horses

Back from the Brink - this is the only? way to get creatures back in mono U

Artificial Evolution - you can change Swarmyard to regen Merfolks, Wizards etc.

I remember not playing with Scion of Oona as it disabled all my Regens and pumps from lands Higure, the Still Wind seems like a fun addition also

Homelessguy Thanks for the suggestions. Sleep isn't a bad idea but I'm not sure I like the one-off effect as opposed to a static ability. Levitation is probably closer but I want to be swinging before Turn 4.

DRmagic2017 Invisible Stalker was in the deck but I took it out because it doesn't do anything other than be unblockable. The hexproof is useless because no one is using their removal on my 1/1; they'll save it for the Ninja. Sun Quan, Lord of Wu is powerful but at 6 Mana it's too expensive for what I'm trying to do.

Mattrockj Rogue's Passage is a good suggestion. But 1) it's so expensive to activate 2) I'm very conscious of how many colorless lands I run and 3) giving one creature unblockable isn't really where I'm trying to be. But I'm sure that's just me and that most Yuriko lists have the card.

Thanks for the suggestions folks. The deck is a lot of fun and can win very quickly if not kept in check.

Hello! I truly like the deck. A couple of ideas. First: Invisible Stalker - another unblockable creature. Second: Sun Quan, Lord of Wu. I think horsemanship isn't popular so your creatures won't be blocked 99%.

I've enjoyed 1 drops with late game utility like Deadeye Tracker and Mistcaller. I'm not sold on Quietus Spike, Inkfathom Infiltrator, or Thassa, God of the Sea since they seem very mana intensive for what they do. I might consider Keeper of Keys over Sun Quan, Lord of Wu as you can easily take back the monarchy with unblockable things or bouncing it back to your hand. Proteus Staff looks really awesome.I have a list on my deckling, if you want to compare, but it's a little more budget friendly.

I like the deck and the idea behind it, just be unblockable. If that is your goal, why not try Sun Quan, Lord of Wu for some spice.

Sun Quan, Lord of Wu would make your creatures near unblockable, thereby making it easier to ninjutsu the ninjas in.

Baleful Strix and Tidehollow Strix provide excellent flying threat removal because they're cheap flying deathtouchers.

Meteor Golem provides great removal, and since you have the ability to bounce him out with the ninjas he's repeatable.

Vela the Night-Clad is a great addition as well because she gives your creatures intimidate and when you bounce your creatures for ninjas she adds some extra damage just for good measure. I used her as my ninja commander previously before Yuriko was spoiled. You can check that out here if you're interested in some more ideas. .....Until the Ninjas Showed Up

Hope some of these ideas help.

I just put Sun Quan, Lord of Wu in the sideboard to be replaced by Jungle Barrier to stick closer to the deck strategy and for more card draw that isn’t dependent on our commander
