HezTheGod I ran verycard you mentioned: Exploration felt rly odd on a deck with 29 lands. Most of the time I wouldn't do much with it, and mid/late game if you're drawing a lot of cards, drawing into that does allow you to drop some extra lands, but then again, it's not what you want to do, you just want to keep chaining turns, and if you fizzle you want to be able to last a turn cycle, so I cut it long ago.

Wingcrafter I ran it, then I cut it out, then I ran it again xD with the new cards recently being printed, a couple of new faeries, and as you can see, my list tends to have other hate cards like Slime and Scooze, I rather take out a creature that's only good when you have another on the board, and that it doesn't have the good creature types.

Green's Sun Zenith I ran it all the way up to Finale of Devastation's release. My playgroup tends to have quite some MLD and pyro effects, and while T1 GSZ into dryad is good, getting Pyroclasmed turn 2 and losing that land was painfull. And when the Finale was released I swapped it, for the ability to be able to grab stuff like Tetsuo, and also being able to grab stuff from GY

Phantasmal Image I ran it as well all the way until this last update, with more Fish/hulk hate. Basically was good vs some good creatures and the way to "interact" with Elesh Norn, but then the meta is more Fish/hulk and I rather have extra GY hate with Slime, and ways to stifle Fish with Obstructionist

Druids' Repository Is actually the card I tested the least, as the first times I played it, a couple of years ago, I guess there was more disenchant effects in my meta, and it wouldn't last much. So I took it out. But I looked back at it again, since my meta changed. It's indeed a good card, but then again, I'm on a slower list trying to rely on mid/late game ways to win, and early game I rly want some mana up (from lands) xD

Druids' Repository - a very powerful mana engine Exploration Green Sun's Zenith Wingcrafter Phantasmal Image

Hey multimedia

Thanks for your opinion & honest Work on this Deck

Lands & Manabase

I think the Manabase should be not the Problem here
I dont play any of these expensive Lands in any of my Commander Decks and i didn't see any disadvantage in my Playgroups
The Lands i use here are all in stock and so i don't have to buy them
So if i will get my Hands on a better Land, i can exchange them with one in any of my Decks.

Anyway i see the Advantage on your choice of Lands and i will put them on the Upgrade List for this Deck with one exception

Mystic Sanctuary
This one is on his way into the Deck

I will cut Cavern of Souls because this is a relic of thinking about a Ninja Tribal CMDR
Never mind Cavern of Souls will be on the Upgrade list too but i have other Decks where i have to put this 60 Bucks in first ;-)

Baleful Strix + Arcane Adaptation + Wingcrafter

I didn't think about any other Creature's because i wanted to make it a Tribal Ninja CMDR
The only one i had in mind was Changeling Outcast

But these three are a must have for this Deck

So for Arcane Adaptation , Baleful Strix & Wingcrafter i will cut Price of Knowledge , Downsize & Drowned Secrets

Delve

I dont consider anymore :-)
Temporal Trespass , Dig Through Time & Treasure Cruise are in of course
Now i have to learn to fuck up my grave but i think i can handle this :-D
So Folio of Fancies , Spellbook are out and now i'm in struggle

I think that The Magic Mirror + Venser's Journal is a "too nice" Combo to Cut and on the other hand they have high CMC
Cutting Spellbook was also hard because Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow and all the others Ninja's "hopfully" gives you so much Cards
So i don't want to cut more "No Maximum Handsize" Cards because i think they're essential
The last card to cut you're offering is Erratic Portal so this one is Out
But this one was in for Protecting some of the "Nasty Ninja's" against hitting the grave from Battletricks
Hopefully the Entomb + Filth or Entomb + Wonder combo and / or Crystal Shard , Walker of Secret Ways will do their job

Vampiric Tutor + Lim-Dul's Vault + Insidious Dreams


So Vampiric Tutor is a well known Card but i think I've got enough Top Deck Manipulation and the "Cards to cut" are Rare. Same is true for Insidious Dreams wich i didn't know before
I had Lim-Dul's Vault on mind when i builded this Deck and maybe this is a game changing "Top Deck Manipulation" because of the mass of Cards u can look at

So i will clear the Maybeboard and all three are in there and i f i find a card to cut Lim-Dul's Vault will be the one who gets in 1st

Chain of Vapor

So here i need a quick 101 on this Card

"At this Moment i'm too stupid to understand how this card work and why it is so good in a Yuriko Deck" So i'm not too stupid to understand how this card works @all-> i'm too stupid why this one should be good and don't any have clue on this combo
So please give me the "Breakthrough"

Shitty English & Bad Grammar

Sorry for my very Basic English Grammar and this shitty English
I think in my Mothers Language much of this Desaster would sound very differnt :-D
And here are some dots and commas if u need them -> ........,,,,,,,, :-D

THX Bro
Update of the Deck will be done soon

Hey, no deck is jank when it has Top, Rack, Demonic, Drain and Study :)

Baleful Strix isn't a Ninja without Arcane Adaptation , but it has good synergy with Commander Ninjutsu as low mana cost draw. Strix and Yuriko interact as a drawing engine for since Strix has flying and deathtouch it will more than likely attack unblocked. One drop Wingcrafter is good with Yuriko and Ninjutsu because has flying and gives the Soulbound creature flying. It's Soulbound can keep changing since it triggers when a creature ETB and you choose if you want to pair that creature with Wingcrafter.

With the high budget here there's really no reason to play terrible lands such as Submerged Boneyard , Dismal Backwater and Jwar Isle Refuge . Lands that could replace these are Underground River , Darkslick Shores , City of Brass . Mystic Sanctuary is powerful because the card you recur is put on top of your library.

Consider adding Temporal Trespass , Dig Through Time and Treasure Cruise ? More cards that have high CMC for Yuriko's trigger, but you can cast them with delve for much lower CMC. Vampiric Tutor , Lim-Dul's Vault and Insidious Dreams are other instant tutors that put the cards you get on top of your library. Chain of Vapor is good removal spell with Yuriko.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Spellbook
  • Folio of Fancies
  • Erratic Portal
  • Venser's Journal
  • Downsize
  • Drowned Secrets
  • Price of Knowledge

Good luck with your deck.

nascentbodhi on Yuriko... because who needs friends anyway?

Since $500 isn't reasonable for everyone, I thought it may be good to include some substitutions to allow a lower budget. See below for a few changes to consider that will decrease the cost while maintaining the basic strategy the deck. Please note that prices are current and will likely change.


Creatures:

Remove: (~$57.00) Brazen Borrower , Sakashima the Impostor

Substitute: (~$0.34) Universal Automaton , Wingcrafter

Lands:

Remove: (~$110.00) Drowned Catacomb , Morphic Pool , Mutavault , Polluted Delta , Shizo, Death's Storehouse , Watery Grave

Substitute: (~$5.50) Ash Barrens , Dismal Backwater , Exotic Orchard , Fetid Pools , Mystic Sanctuary , Rogue's Passage , Salt Marsh

Enchantments:

Remove: (~$38.25) Bitterblossom


These changes will reduce the cost by $200... for deeper cuts, things to look at would be:

Remove: (~$85.00) Lotus Petal , Mox Amber and Scroll Rack

Substitute: (~$14.00) Arcane Signet , Dimir Signet , Ponder


Cost with all changes: $230

alexjustdoit on Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow Unblockable Tribal

I don't think Lazav, Thopter Spy Network, or Telepathy are doing much for you in this list.

Might I suggest some odds and ends if you haven't tried them already - Abjure (if youre going to bounce yuriko anyway, might as well sac her for value), Unnatural Selection , Discovery / Dispersal , Trickery Charm , Whispersilk Cloak , Thalakos Seer , Wingcrafter (does serious work in this deck)

GrinningGrebe on Yuriko Ninjas

Wingcrafter , Cloud of Faeries are wonderful ninjutsu enablers, since ninjas lack evasion.

Unnatural Selection , Arcane Adaptation and Amoeboid Changeling are creature type hacks to turn your evasive dorks into ninjas.

Finally Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive is the best non-ninja (sadly) you're not playing.

Good luck and if you search some inspiration look at my list, even if its still under development!

GrinningGrebe on 虎の影, 百合子

Ehi nice deck and very cool bling you got here! Even if I think your list is pretty optmized, I feel obliged to recommend to you Wingcrafter , a low drop on your first turn or a way to grant evasion to your Commander later.

In my list I use Trinket Mage too, since it can grab a piece of mana ramp, an Ornithopter or Sensei's Divining Top . In particular I feel Ornithopter is a must have, since nullifies the inevitable tempo loss coming with Ninjutsu, as well as Cloud of Faeries .

Finally, even if in my build I went more on the steal plan, focusing a bit on our opponent top of the library, I feel like Scheming Symmetry can do some work to blow the final punch to the table. But my favourite use of that is setting up a Gonti, Lord of Luxury play, taking what your target has chosen and then bounce and play again him.

Good work! +1
