Whispersilk Cloak Discussion
23 hours ago
I wouldnt rush out to remove Swiftfoot or the Greeves. If you have a couple key merfolk they are worth protecting. However, I have removed them from a couple of my decks, it really depends on how many key creatures you have. If you are not as concerned with the haste, and more with the protection, you could always swap out one for Whispersilk Cloak.
One of the things I have run into with theme decks is the lack of Flying creatures (I run an unblockables and have worked to build an elf deck).. Blue luckily has a couple answers.. I am not sure what you would get rid of, but can always add a Fog Bank, or Wonder or even a Archetype of Imagination, although its kinda mana expensive.

i like the idea. the deck dose 2 things really well, drains life and keeps your opponents on the back foot.
the other thing i need to be good at but is currently stuggerling with is evasion, as without solid evasion, tempo style control your going to struggle to utilise the ninjas to there best.
some suggestions, a mix of vampire lords, general lord effects, some ninja staples
Reveillark Baleful Strix Stormscape Familiar Whispersilk Cloak Thief of Sanity Vampire Cutthroat Twilight Prophet Bident of Thassa Thassa, God of the Sea Patron of the Vein Yahenni, Undying Partisan Anowon, the Ruin Sage Captivating Vampire Blade of the Bloodchief Lazav, the Multifarious Drana, Liberator of Malakir Dictate of Heliod Sanctum Seeker Door of Destinies Whip of Erebos Always Watching Radiant Destiny
and not to forget the vampire planeswalker that makes flying vampires ;)
there are of course lots of addinal more fantastic cards that would work well with this theme but these are some of the better budget options

Tutors are always a good option, but I didn't add any because of the strong card draw engine that is possible through the KCI basis. The protection is something I forgot about mostly, because most of the permanents are expendable. There is Avacyn, Angel of Hope and Darksteel Forge, but adding more protection is never bad. Beside counterspells in white, like Rebuff the Wicked, Dawn Charm, or even Warping Wail, I think blink spells could be used, such as Cloudshift, but I'm not a fan of such protection without an Isochron Scepter. Beside that, theres no extra value gained from them. I wouldn't use Whispersilk Cloak since it gives your creature shroud, but instead stick whit hexproof with Mask of Avacyn or Swiftfoot Boots. You can even go a step further and add an Leonin Abunas, but I think the deck doesn't need too much protection, beside the combo.

+1 This looks like a fun one to play! Since you mention an artifact and an enchantment as win-cons you might want to add a fetch like Enlightened Tutor. Also, I would add some protection for those permanents and your commander using cards like: Rebuff the Wicked, Emerge Unscathed and Whispersilk Cloak.

cards to remove (They either have no synergy or are kinda bad): Fleshbag Marauder, Resolute Archangel, Impale (replace with Hero's Downfall), Mind Rot, Repeating Barrage, Diabolic Edict (Replace with Doom Blade), Smelt (replace with Vandalblast), Pillar of Origins, and Arcane Encyclopedia.
Cards to Add: Mardu Banner, Rakdos Signet, Orzhov Signet, Boros Signet, Darksteel Plate, Whispersilk Cloak, Sigarda's Aid, Open the Armory, Chandra's Ignition, Darksteel Ingot, Fellwar Stone, Commander's Sphere, Command Tower, Tenza, Godo's Maul, Sunforger, Swords to Plowshares, Boros Charm, Crackling Doom, Mortify, Archetype of Aggression. I would also replace some basic lands with duals (http://www.mtglands.com/). Check EDHREC (https://edhrec.com/commanders/zurgo-helmsmasher) for more ideas.

Welcome to EDH!
I'll list some budget EDH cards since I am assuming you don't want to invest too much into it yet. Here might be some cards that you can consider using.
Ochran Assassin - A literal rattlesnake.
Whispersilk Cloak - Gives Virtus the unblockability as well as protection.
Rancor - Trample also allows damage to go through, great card overall.
Prowler's Helm - More can't be blocked effects.
Hope that helps!
