Thrill-Kill Assassin Discussion

Scarblade Elite is a card that is actually assassin tribal. You could try Nekrataal, Thrill-Kill Assassin, Silumgar Assassin, or Garza's Assassin.

I like the idea of assassin tribal. Nice job!

Why play Agent of the Fates? Equiping it doesn't trigger it's ability and neither does ciphering with shadow slice, so why bother? You could just as easily be running Hand of Silumgar or Thrill-Kill Assassin to keep your curve lower. If you wanted it to be a creature with 3 power you could look at 2-3 Isareth the Awakener.

2 out of 10. You play cards like Dash Hopes, that are never going to be any good. It gives your opponent the choice of what to do, and opponents have this thing that makes them choose the option you would like them not to.

In the right deck Nyxathid could be really strong, but you don't have much discard to back it up.

Toshiro Umezawa could be good, but that would require more than 8 instants. Besides that he is only good against creature-heavy decks, so 4 of him is overdoing it no matter what.

Why exactly those 2 lilianas, the Pathway Arrows, and the Thrill-Kill Assassins? All of those cards are severely underpowered in modern and you should consider exchanging them.

Here are my suggestions, based on our talk and your budget. Out: 1. 1x Daggerdrome Imp 2. 1x Deeproot Warrior 3. 2x Old-Growth Dryads 4. 1x Sengir Vampire 5. 2x Thrill-Kill Assassin 6. 2x Doom Blade 7. 2x Rancor (you'll have less creatures to target for this) 8. 1x Duress (2 is fine) 9. 1x Liliana, Death Wielder

In: 1. 4x Inquisition of Kozilek 2. 1x Liliana Vess 3. 3x Fatal Push 4. 2x Bloodghast 5. 2x Grim Flayer

You'll want to up your lands to about 21 at least I'd say. Some decent budget lands in your colors include Llanowar Wastes and Blooming Marsh. I'd really strongly advise running fetch and shock lands if/when you can afford then though.

This deck looks dope AF. I fucking love madcap skills and I'm sure you will too. Would recommend a few changes:1) I would definitely tidy up the mana a bit, run some nonbasics 2) Thrill-Kill Assassin is an uncommon, maybe run something like Ravenous Rats to go with the discard theme or Festering Goblin or Goblin Arsonist to go with the sacrifice theme 3) opinions on Reckless Charge?

I went the other way by creating a black/ red assassins deck. Has Agent of the Fates, Hand of Silumgar, Graveblade Marauder, Thrill-Kill Assassin and Ruthless Ripper

I then use instants to give all a first strike capacity. Really fun deck to play.

Aww hell yeah! I actually had a Kiku tiny leaders deck list that I never got around to putting together but I LOVE assassins tribal. Just off the top of my head, Thrill-Kill Assassin, Garza's Assassin and Nightshade Assassin are the most notable omissions.

Nekrataal probably gets the edge over Nightshade, but Nightshade could potentially get rid of indestructible creatures and can target black. Just something to consider.

I'm a huge fan of Garza's Assassin because sometimes you need to assassinate two targets asap.

Otherwise, your list looks really tight and these are mere suggestions/ideas. +1

If this was my deck I would play Thrill-Kill Assassin just for flavor. Disregarding that, the deck looks great! :D
