Triton Shorestalker Discussion

@ValasCladdana I didnt know about Moonblade Shinobi thats certainly a cool one! For this decklist being a primer I do know that ive fallen behind and am extremely dated since the release of Modern Horizons and havent quite gotten around to updating this Primers description/options section.
The actual decklist displayed is what I actually run/play against friends IRL; Slither Blade is easily the better choice over Triton Shorestalker I just wasnt very active during the Amonkhet/Hour of Devastation timeframe and havent bothered to buy the singles yet.

I don't know if you're trying to do the exact same thing, but I play a fair few 1 drops to consistently Ninjutsu Yuriko in on turn 2. Stuff like Gudul Lurker , Faerie Seer , Mist-Cloaked Herald , Mothdust Changeling , Pteramander , Siren Stormtamer , and Triton Shorestalker in addition to the ones you already have. And while it's not a 1 drop, I also really like Thalakos Seer , lots of ninjutsu interactions.

The archetype of "Flying Men" is certainly a fun one and cheaper than many other Canadian Highlander decks. A few suggestions one could make are the inclusions of cards like Preordain , Serum Visions , Dig Through Time and Ancestral Vision for card draw and card selection in addition Ponder and Opt which you have already included. Also, perhaps adding fetchlands to the deck could enable finding Watery Grave more easily. Moreover, Vendilion Clique would be a perfect fit for the deck. Last but not least, you could splash white for removal like Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile , along with more flying one-drops such as Healer's Hawk , Duskborne Skymarcher , Loyal Pegasus , Suntail Hawk and more, as these creatures synergize with Favorable Winds , unlike other creatures in the deck like Triton Shorestalker , which do not. Sorry for the length of the response, hope it was even a tiny bit helpful. Nonetheless, Canadian Highlander is such a fun and diverse format, so just play what you enjoy most!

I think for sure you need to be running some counter magic. There is more efficient removal such as Pongify or Rapid Hybridization . I’m not certain what the win condition is but it seems like it’s kind of voltron-esk so maybe consider running Notion Thief to slow everyone down while you assemble.id recommend adding Dimir Signet and Talisman of Dominance for additional ramp. 6 planeswalkers is quite a lot. Triton Shorestalker is quite out of place. Maybe add in Thassa, God of the Sea

Hey, really well made Commander deck, but it's only 94 cards :)
Thalakos Seer is quite good with Ninjutsu, getting value with Yuriko. Ninja of the Deep Hours , Higure, the Still Wind and Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni are good Ninjas, worth playing with Yuriko. Higure is great with Arcane Adaptation because then it can tutor for any creature in your library since all creatures are considered Ninjas.
All the low mana cost unblockable creatures and flying creatures are good to get a fast Yuriko onto the battlefield. Unblockable: Slither Blade , Triton Shorestalker , Mist-Cloaked Herald , Gudul Lurker , Dimir Infiltrator , Tormented Soul . Flying: Mausoleum Wanderer , Pteramander , Jace's Phantasm . Thada Adel, Acquisitor has a good ability for multiplayer Commander since most opponents decks have artifacts. Fabricate or Trinket Mage are worth playing just to tutor for Top. Good luck with your deck.

Mostly, I'm confused about what you're planning on getting with your Transmute cards. The best targets for a Yuriko deck at the 5 mana slot are Conspiracy and Xenograft, which are both in the Maybeboard. Same for Arcane Adaptation at the 3-drop slot.
I see stuff that makes creatures unblockable, but auras seem pretty bad with ninjas. Cover of Darkness is what I would use in a tribal deck, or you can just put in more unblockable cheap stuff like Slither Blade , Triton Shorestalker , etc. If you want to Surveil, then Nightveil Sprite is well-suited to both purposes. I also see Thalakos Seer in the Maybeboard, which is obscene with Yuriko, so I would maindeck that ASAP.
You're packing a lot of different card types, so Emrakul, the Promised End would be good in this deck. It's high CMC to burn the table with Yuriko, but you should be able to consistently cast it for 8 or less.
As for cuts, Rise from the Grave is pretty bad. You can Extract from Darkness , Necromantic Summons or Liliana, Death's Majesty for the same cost. I don't like Mirko Vosk, Etrata, Mind Grind, or Traitor's Clutch, either. The a graveyard subtheme makes sense, but mill cards don't.

Vampiric Tutor is the #1 card you could put in to improve the deck. Diabolic Vision is an excellent cantrip. Temporal Trespass is the best extra turn spell you could ask for, since the CMC is an upside. Same goes for Curtains' Call and Avatar of Woe . Insidious Dreams and Ancestral Knowledge are extra Doomsdays. Unnatural Selection is an extra creature-type changer. Emrakul, the Promised End is a good eldrazi of choice, since you'll actually be able to cast it if you tutor it to the top of your library. Trench Gorger is a good late game card, since it does triple duty acting as a huge beater, high-CMC target, and deck-thinner. For little guys, Tormented Soul , Triton Shorestalker , Faerie Impostor , Prickly Boggart , Vampire Cutthroat , Looter il-Kor , Nether Traitor , Flitterstep Eidolon , Thalakos Seer , Baleful Strix , Augury Owl , Spire Owl , and Sage Owl are better than some of your choices,
