Whispersilk Cloak Discussion
7 hours ago
Thanks for the comment, Aondail! I'll address your suggestions in the order they were put forward:
First, I like Hymn to Tourach. I will definitely pick one up, posthaste.
I have noticed the lack of ways to deal with enchantments. In addition, Spine of Ish Sah seems like a great way to deal with Iona, Shield of Emeria. I will seriously consider adding both Spine of Ish Sah and Infernal Tribute.
I feel like my ways of gaining life are fine. I guess I could play something like Bloodchief Ascension
Thanks again for the comment!

A few ideas (I just built a Rith Voltron deck, so this is fresh in my mind). Look for ways to get damage off your tokens, get more tokens, get damage through (trample, unblockable), and protect Rith.
Purphoros, God of the Forge, Impact Tremors, Pennon Blade, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Emmara Tandris, Rhys the Redeemed, Pollenbright Wings, Skyblinder Staff, Ring of Kalonia, Whispersilk Cloak, Prowler's Helm, Champion of Lambholt, Indestructibility, Shield of the Oversoul etc.
Here's a link to my deck, if you'd like to see some other alternatives: Rith the Awakener Voltron $100 Budget

I do have some suggestions, blue has some amazing enablers for ninjutsu. For example: Gudul Lurker 1/1 unblockable for , since its unblockable it will always be able to trigger ninjutsu, and can after being send back to your hand be played the same turn again because its so cheap, and repeat every turn. There are some other cards that do this, one other example is Triton Shorestalker.
As for lands, what you have now is fine, you might want to add 1 land. Some decent ones in this deck could be Creeping Tar Pit, since it can be an unblockable creature while still giving you mana of both colours. The one bad thing about this card is that when you use its 3/2 unblockable form for ninjutsu, and play it again either the same or next turn, it enters the battlefield tappped. Another good card might be Sunken Ruins, if you ever have mana issues, this one can fix it.
I liek your other ninjutsu enablers, Sleep, Aqueous Form, Distortion Strike, Slip Through Space are all pretty good. I dont really like Behind the Scenes and the one disadvantage of Aqueous Form is that it gets destroyed when the creature is swapped out. Maybe you can think about Artful Dodge, since it is similair to Distortion Strike, but it swaps the +1/+0 for the ability to choose when you rebound it.
I can also see what you try to do with Quickling, get ninja's back to your hand. This is good, cause they will be protected from cards like Doom Blade when theyre in your hand. But I think I would like to see more of these cards. Some suggestions are AEther Tradewinds and Familiar's Ruse. These 2 cards turn what would usually be a disadvantage in sending a card back to your hand, into an advantage in this deck. I think a counter spell is pretty decent here, the only disadvatage is that it costs .
For card I dont really like in the deck:as said before, I think Behind the Scenes is a bit too expensive. Also Shuriken while being fun to play in a ninja deck isn't that great, you already have other removal in Doom Blade. Whispersilk Cloak is also pretty expensive, but it doesnt get destroyed when the creature its equiped on gets swapped out, so I think its fine, some other good shourd equipment is Lightning Greaves.
Hope this helps! Good luck with your deck! :)

Regoober Thank you for your excellent comment!
I'll be adding Dig Through Time, Whispersilk Cloak, and Mindmoil from your suggestions as they would indeed help this deck out quite a bit. But I would like a suggestion for cuts too. It always seems that cuts are the hardest for me to do when deck building. Also, instead of Bitter Ordeal or Surgical Extraction, Wouldnt it be a better idea to run something like Extract or Praetor's Grasp to take it out before the titans hit the graveyard?

Cool! I didn't know you could double up the Yidris Triggers! It's Wanderer with Black!
Sylvan Library for organizing the top of the deck and maybe Dig Through Time for a big cascade for little mana and getting those two cards you really want before or during your next mill. Animar, Soul of Elements would be nice with your High-CMC creatures, (and recasting your commander).
People are going to get wise to your commander quick, and without many counters or protective answers, I would suggest Whispersilk Cloak to avoid targeted removal and ensure combat damage. It also works great with the Shocker cards mid/late game which become easily blocked.
Remember, you're not the only one running Ulamog and Kozilek, so you may need something to make sure your #1 win condition is still viable. I was going to suggest Leyline of the Void, but it messes up some of your other cool cards. Instead, consider Bitter Ordeal, Extirpate, and/or Surgical Extraction to get them gone for good if the problem arises.
+1 for making a meh commander stand out, +1 for taking it in a new direction, and +1 for introducing me to Heartwood Storyteller!
