Battle Box - Dimir Ninjas

Casual* Casual U/B (Dimir)



The Dimir Ninja deck uses cheap hard to block creatures like Baleful Strix to attack unblocked and be returned with your Ninjas.

You want to keep on attacking with your creatures, and Pestermite and Recoil are some ways to ensure that that happens.

This deck will draw a lot of cards throughout the game, and has to use its mana efficiently. That means you're constantly forced to Ninja in cards during your turn or waiting for flash and kill stuff during your opponents' turns.

The Dimir Ninja deck is very tempo oriented - a lot of your cards tap and bounce and don't directly kill; so if you're opponent can overcome those initial obstacles, you're in a lot of trouble.

Ornithopter works pretty well for ninjutsu.

icehippo: True! But I like Tormented Soul for this deck better - it forces the used to be more aggressive since it can't block and creates a lot more tension.

Always a sucker for some sweet ninjas. +1 from me.

However, you run four Nightveil Specter and no ways of generating mana of any color? I've found Shimmering Grotto and Unknown Shores to be infinitely useful in mana fixing for colors you don't even play. Shouldn't slow down this deck too much either.

Trust me, it's worth it for the face when you cast their Flametongue Kavu on Turn 4.
