Vela the Night-Clad Discussion

High_Priest_of_Avacyn on Yuriko - Omae wa mou shindeiru

Sun Quan, Lord of Wu would make your creatures near unblockable, thereby making it easier to ninjutsu the ninjas in.

Baleful Strix and Tidehollow Strix provide excellent flying threat removal because they're cheap flying deathtouchers.

Meteor Golem provides great removal, and since you have the ability to bounce him out with the ninjas he's repeatable.

Vela the Night-Clad is a great addition as well because she gives your creatures intimidate and when you bounce your creatures for ninjas she adds some extra damage just for good measure. I used her as my ninja commander previously before Yuriko was spoiled. You can check that out here if you're interested in some more ideas. .....Until the Ninjas Showed Up

Hope some of these ideas help.

Mizeov: Great suggestions...unfortunately I'm not too keen in including a 3-card combo in my deck due to meta reasons and for the same reason why I didn't include Altar of the Brood, Vela the Night-Clad doesn't really contribute much to my overall strategy. Pull from Eternity is interesting though...I might include it when I add Teferi's Protection later.

Vela the Night-Clad is a felidar outlet for infinite blinks. 3 card combo where one of the cards is your commander is very easily doable with all the tutors.

I might also recommend Pull from Eternity as it can protect against those pesky opponents exiling stuff you don’t want exiled

Vela the Night-Clad is good, I absolutely adore Meren of Clan Nel Toth, and she isn't absolutely necessary, though she is super powerful. Lyzolda, the Blood Witch, Rakdos, Lord of Riots, Ezuri, Claw of Progress, Mayael the Anima is slap full of ramp allowing you to hardcast as well, I'll throw in another vote for Edgar Markov because he is just SICK, last one I'll throw out is Karametra, God of Harvests...just look up her Enchantress list. It's excellent.

Sylvanrush on Yuriko goes Eureka!

Was trying to think of shenanigans.. like top deck manipulation to take advantage of Yuriko's life loss triggered ability..

For instance, have a few ninjas out, cast Long-Term Plans to get Draco third from top, cast Dream Cache, put Draco and the biggest other CMC card from your hand on top of library (Vela the Night-Clad for instance.. something realistic for this deck.. because Draco is so realistic, lol) Ninjitsu Yuriko into play, hit with her and another ninja.. everyone takes 16+6.


Kogarashi on Infinite flicker combo for UB ...

2 weeks ago

My husband doesn't have a TappedOut account, so I'm posting this in his stead. He has a Commander deck headed by Vela the Night-Clad, and is looking for an infinite combo where things keep flickering in and out of the battlefield so he can keep getting his opponents with Vela's life-loss. Any suggestions?

Something not unlike the combo using three Faceless Butcher, only that can be run in Commander (without resorting to Clone creatures).

I actually saw this decklist somewhere else and just wanted to playtest a few hands. But since then I have, i've figured out that the Vela + Ninjitsu combo is way more appealing.

Vela the Night-Clad + Infinite Mana Combo i.e. Deadeye Navigator & Peregrine Drake + A lot of Ninjitsu procs given you can go infinite switching out ninjas as long as you have the mana.

Nice list! I'd recommend adding Vela the Night-Clad. With Aminatou out she goes infinite with Felidar Guardian.
