Throat Slitter Discussion

Finally, you'll want some more explosive ramp and draw. Jet Medallion , Thunderscape Familiar , Herald's Horn can lower your rats' cost, and Slate of Ancestry , Skullclamp , Reforge the Soul , Midnight Reaper , Dark Prophecy , Grim Haruspex , Night's Whisper , Greed , Syphon Mind , Promise of Power ,

Here’s some thoughts below:
Cards you probably want to ditch:
Gutter Skulk - doesn’t actually do anything
Nezumi Graverobber - too slow, and a quite unreliable flip condition
Ogre Slumlord - waaay too much mana for a creature with little impact. In a turn-4 format, this guy is not what you want in your hand.
Voldaren Pariah - she’s alright, but rats have much better finishers (whuch i’ve detailed below)
Diabolic Revelation - much too slow.. and you’re not a combo deck so limited use also. This is not viable on 22 lands..
Dutiful Return, Morbid Plunder, Unmake the Graves, Whip of Erebos - you don’t need to be bringing rats back. The whole value point of rats is that their expendable. These spells are also very slow... you could have just fielded more rats.
So, what should you add? Here’s some ideas of better cards:
Throat Slitter is a 3 mana killspell that gives you more rat bodies to boot.
Burglar Rat gives you more ways to ruin your opponents hand
Chittering Rats also is effective discard, with the added bonus of limiting what your opponent can draw
Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni (max 2x) is a great finisher that deals massive damage on the turn he enters, and steals stuff
Marrow-Gnawer (max 1x) is an alright secondary finisher for when games go long
Rats are good at stalling games out, with all their hand disruption, but at 22 lands you really don’t want that many cards at 4cmc or higher. To the point where you probably don’t want more than 4 cards casting this amount (if it were me, it’d just be 2x Ink Eyes and 1x Marrow-Gnawer). You need to apply pressure early and then capatalise on that, as discard effects late-game become quite weak

Overall looks good but something that will really help you out is some draw. Something like Sign in Blood or Phyrexian Arena... Throat Slitter could be fun for sneaking in more removal and still keep a high creature count.

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.

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
2x Ninja of the Deep Hours
Walker of Secret Ways
Higure, the Still Wind
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.

For unblockable creatures, Thada Adel, Acquisitor is really good since there's usually at least one player with islands so you can steal their artifacts. Ornithopter is a cheap way to ninjutsu a player with no flying blockers.
Notorious Throng could be good to generate more fliers, and also gives an extra turn since you have quite a few Rogues.
Dowsing Dagger Flip is a really good way to ramp since your creatures are unblockable. Sword of the Animist helps too, and removing lands from the deck increases the damage you get out of Yuriko's ability.
You could try Larceny to make opponents run out of cards since your creatures will easily deal combat damage.
Cyclonic Rift is probably the best blue spell since it deals with any situation, so you should include it if possible.

Dense Canopy - with sidar, your small creatures can only be blocked by creatures with reach.
Mirror Entity - attack, wait till after blockers declared, then make your creatures bigger.
Spawnwrithe - each copy can make a copy. Can get out of hand.
Daxos of Meletis - i personally like casting other people's spells.
Acidic Slime - control
Throat Slitter - more control
Retribution of the Meek - another wrath that wouldn't effect yours.
Chromatic Lantern - expensive, but helps any 3 or more colored decks.
I understand some of these are not real cheap, but these are some other options you can consider. I run a Saskia deck that runs small power creatures, and now need to pick up Sidar for it.

From the deck title I was expecting to see creatures with shadow and clones, but it's still a pretty good list, although you included Throat Slitter twice. Unless it's a strategy to secretly slit more throats?
I made a Vela deck with those cards as well as lots of Eldrazi, so check it out and let me know what you think.
