Tormented Soul can't block and is unblockable.
What are you talking about LusciousCabbage, this deck is great
But! What about if someone is running a mono Tormented Soul deck?
I'll second Dimir Infiltrator
over Triton Shorestalker
or Tormented Soul
, it has a bigger butt meaning it can block on defense, and you can Transmute it away for a Hands of Binding
, Hidden Strings
when you really need one..
Reducing redundancy is never a bad thing :)
Hey Twanicus, thx for your comment!
I have to be honest, this is just a list that I put together, i wanted to make a ninja deck and I quickly made this list, just to have an idea of what the deck would look like once complete, so I still have to test it, and when I do i might have to change some cards.
To answer your questions:
1) I obviously need some evasive creatures in this deck in order to cheat the ninjas out, but as you can imagine i can't have too many. I think the Ornithopter s and the Dimir Infiltrator are kinda key since the fist one is really cheap at 0 mana, and i can always play it when i return it to my hand, and the infiltrator is useful for the transmute ability in the mid/late game. For the remaining slots Invisible Stalker was definitely a viable candidate but in the end i choose to put the Tormented Soul just to have more one drops, but again i might find out that a stalker is bettere while playtesting.
2) I choose to put some swords in this deck because they synergize very good with all the unblockable theme going on. I choose these 3 mainly because I like them, expecially in the deck: Sword of Light and Shadow lets me get back key creatures if they happe to die, Sword of Fire and Ice draws me card, if i equip it on a Ninja of the Deep Hours i draw 2 cards and that's always nice :P Sword of Feast and Famine lets me untap my lands and again that's useful in this deck since i play my cards during combat and thanks to it I can have mana open anyways in my second main.
3) I still have to build a sideboard for the deck X)
Im just getting into modern and have a deck that needs better direction. Any and all advice or help is very appreciated. I do think i need more mana. But im not sure where to go from here.
