Throat Slitter Discussion

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.

Commander's Sphere

Daxos of Meletis - i personally like casting other people's spells.

Acidic Slime - control

Throat Slitter - more control

King Macar, the Gold-Cursed

Retribution of the Meek - another wrath that wouldn't effect yours.

Chromatic Lantern - expensive, but helps any 3 or more colored decks.

Too many lands that enter tapped. Try more lands like Exotic Orchard, City of Brass, check lands such as Hinterland Harbor, or more ping lands.

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?

A new card that works really well with unblockable creatures is Dowsing Dagger  Flip. Tetzimoc, Primal Death is also good mass removal that you can bounce with ninjutsu to reuse.

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.

Pit Spawn is a Monster.

I use the black ninjas in my Horobi. Ninjutsu is a great way to get Death's Wail off the field when the effect is less beneficial for you. Each of the abilities lend themselves to your overall strategy. Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni Okiba-Gang Shinobi Throat Slitter Skullsnatcher.

Nim Deathmantle is an all-star in a deck like this.

Maybe Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Locust Miser, Gnat Miser, Okiba-Gang Shinobi, Skullsnatcher, Throat Slitter. A little more variety and added abilities of the ninjas

TacoMan14 on How would a card with ...

6 months ago

Lets say I have a Kinjalli's Sunwing out on the board so all my opponents creatures enter the battlefield tapped, and my opponent attacks with a creature and I choose not to block, so they ninjutsu in a ninja like Throat Slitter for example. The ability for ninjutsu reads "pay_ mana to return an unblocked attacker you control to your hand; put this card onto the battlefield tapped and attacking". So since the ninja is already entering tapped does it stay attacking, or does the sunwing keep the attack from happening?

Here's something you can try out: ninjas :)

The best fairies have etb abilities (IE Mistbind Clique, Spellstutter Sprite, Sower of Temptation etc), and pretty much all of them have flying, so you can attack opponents with no flyers, and the ones that get through can be bounced to get ninjas through.

Best one is Silent-Blade Oni, but Ninja of the Deep Hours, Throat Slitter and Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni are pretty cool.

Stratium on Master of Rats

There are rats with the ability Ninjutsu that could also deal the final blow if Master of cruelties isn't blocked. Skullsnatcher, Throat Slitter, Okiba-Gang Shinobi, Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni. They could also be used if other your rats are not blocked. Not saying you should do this, just an idea.
