Throat Slitter Discussion

I think that Throat Slitter might deserve more than 1 copy. Perhaps something like Invisible Stalker to guarantee your Ninjutsu? Otherwise, looks good :)

Ratta Tat Tat Tat. Dont forget Pack Rat!

Lands:

Swarmyard seems perfect too.

Some more tribal/creature pump:

Metallic Mimic for counters on all of your rats and Adaptive Automaton for a similar lord effect. Akroma's Memorial, Stoneforge Masterwork, Eldrazi Monument, Bad Moon

Answers:

Attrition, Eliminate the Competition, Mutilate

Card Draw:TBD!!!

Ramp:

Liliana of the Dark Realms, Sol Ring, Black Market

Rat Creature Options:

Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Crypt Rats, Throat Slitter, Patron of the Nezumi, Plague of Vermin, Pack Rat

INFECT:

Ichor Rats, Septic Rats

Potential Cuts (In my opinion):

Prototype Portal Confused on why this is here. Rhystic Tutor Will almost always be countered in multiplayer. Geth's Verdict Better options for targeted removal Murder Howling Mine Black doesnt want to help everyone. Phyrexian Arena FTW.

im not using the creatures to block specifically, but once i get enough ninja stuff out and have used them for value, being able to use the ninjutsu enablers to chump or better beat your opponent with them (of which all but venser have a form of evasion). its just a later game value thing.

mistblade shinobi's ability is useful, but in mose cases, using venser is better, although slower, you get a lot of value from using vendilion clique or venser for ninjutsu.

also, in my opinion, mistblade shinobi reveals my strategy all to soon. if i attack with a 1/1, my opponent would be suspicious that i have some sort of combat trick or removal if they block, but once they figure out im playing ninjas, then they would block every creature if they can. thats why i use slower ninjas, so i can surprise them with something like Throat Slitter, ninja of the deep hours, or higure himself.

which is why i updated my creatures, you're right nether traitor can't block, put in another vendilion clique and some spellstutter sprite. how does it look?

That makes sense on why I was unfamiliar with Sakashima's Student. Mistblade Shinobi comes down a turn earlier than Throat Slitter(assuming you have a t1 creature) but has different restrictions. Nether Traitor can't block either and Vampire Cutthroat doesn't stack up to your other cards in the deck. Then again, if you are using creatures to block you aren't maximizing the potential of Ninjutsu and more specifically Throat Slitter and Mistblade Shinobi.

What about Throat Slitter?

Thanks alot and for the suggestions !

I agree Victim and throat are both great depending on the meta.

Okiba while it fits with the discard/exile theme feels a bit expensive to cast for 4 CMC

Throat Slitter on the other hand at 3 CMC feel right at home, and the deck needed the extra control and I didn't feel like cutting down my creatures count. so I guess I'll trade 2x blackguard for them.

Fatal Push or Victim of Night might be better than Go for the Throat depending on your meta. For a bit of fun I'd be tempted to include Okiba-Gang Shinobi or Throat Slitter to bounce the prowl cards and then reuse them... I like the deck, so +1
