Throat Slitter Discussion

Personally I'd swap out Azra Smokeshaper for something like Okiba-Gang Shinobi or Throat Slitter . I just find that if you ninjutsu in Azra during combat and make someone invulnerable its pretty much pointless at that point cause your turn is almost over anyway. I just find that those two offer more utility for the deck than Azra would.

Hey, I read your post late last night. Yesterday afternoon I set up a list of cards to send off to an online store for credit. Throat Slitter was one of them. I still Tezzeret, Artifice Master , Blood Artist , Vandalblast , and Krosan Grip . I have adjusted the pictures of the cards to reflect what version I have for trade as well as correct pricing. Just let me know if there is anything else in my binder that interests you. I just updated my binder to reflect the cards that I will be sending off. Hopefully it did update correctly because I have been having problems with the cards not coming out of my wants or haves sections after taking them out. :/ I will let you know if a card you selected falls under that category. Thanks

Unlike Relentless Rats , Rat Colony frees you up to be able to use more different rats while still keeping the core of the deck intact. Rats like Pack Rat , Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni , and Throat Slitter could be good includes although I understand if you feel this is too much of a move away from a rat colony deck. In addition, a few generic Tribal cards to increase the toughness of your rats could really help. Coat of Arms is really good but it affects everything and turns the board into a mess of math, Obelisk of Urd is much simpler on the board while still keeping your precious rodents from being killed by a single chump blocker.

1) I know you say the curve is low... but it’s not that low, you still have a 4-cost ninjitsu. 18 mana is more what burn plays... see how it goes but i think you will be wanting at least 22 lands.
2) i think Fetid Pools is a mistake. It’s too slow and you’ll seldom have the resources to warrant cycling. Use the UB fastland.
4) some of your non-creature spells seem bad... actually everything except for Opt . You can run better killspells in the form of Fatal Push . Blue has many much more effective 1cmc drawspells than Night's Whisper. Dispel is probably more practical than Negate , but it really depends what you’re trying to counter (either way, there’s better options than Negate). Your enchantments would be better served as more 1-mana disruption and killspells so that you can get to swinging with ninjas quicker

Yeah, so I'm thinking with Higure, the Still Wind and all the card draw you have, you might be better running a small toolbox of 1-of ninjas for Higure to fetch out as the situation calls for them. I mean, you don't need Throat Slitter in every match, so 1-of might be appropriate with all the fetch and draw, as would Mistblade Shinobi and Shapesharer .
I know one of the staples of Modern Ninjas were Spellstutter Sprite , Snapcaster Mage and Faerie Miscreant with their powerful etb abilities. Of those, I could see Spellstutter Sprite having nice synergy in a deck like this, as most of your cards are both faeries and ninja.

Last night my buddy had 2 fliers attack 2 different players. Neither had a flying creature to block with so they both declared no blockers.
After no blockers were declared, my friend returns the creature attacking player 1 to hand as part of the ninjutsu cost for Yuriko. Then returns the creature attacking player 2 to hand via ninjutsu for Throat Slitter .
Player 2 does not want his creature destroyed by Throat Slitter's combat damage trigger, so before the damage step casts Deflecting Palm targeting Throat Slitter.
With Deflecting Palm on the stack, the attacking player flashes in Spellstutter Sprite and it resolves, but it's ETB has no legal target so it doesn't resolve. Then while holding priority, he goes to ninjutsu in Sakashima's Student , returning Throat Slitter to hand and copying SS which would now be able to counter Deflecting Palm since now X=2 (fairies in play).
We were not sure if this was legal, but we let him do it based off the wording on ninjutsu. It seemed wrong, but the only prerequisite was that the creature being bounced was an unblocked attacker which we believed Throat Slitter still was.
Question 1: Attacking player was able to do one ninjutsu after the other if there were no responses, correct?
Question 2: Was player 2 able to cast Palm after Throat Slitter ETB'd but before damage was dealt?
& the big one!
Was the attacking player allowed to ninjutsu in the student as described? And if so, would this wild interaction have worked as intended?
Thank you for your help!!
