Cover of Darkness

Enchantment

As Cover of Darkness enters the battlefield, choose a creature type.

Creatures of the chosen type have fear.

Neat deck. I like the theme that you are going for. Here are a couple thoughts:

Maybe a few more ways to ensure your creatures connect? Any of Cover of Darkness (a bit pricey), Fear, Trailblazer's Boots, Changeling Outcast, Dauthi Voidwalker, Access Tunnel (most of your stuff is small), Whispersilk Cloak, or Prowler's Helm could work.

You only have a few non-rogue/assassin/mercenary creatures, but you could use Conspiracy or Maskwood Nexus to make every creature that you have count.

Crow-Umbra on Some Light Clerical Work

I've liked Fanatical Devotion as a free sac outlet/protection piece in Aristocrats and reanimator decks. I like Dismantling Wave as a removal piece for any of my decks with White. You could also include Dance of the Dead and Necromancy to expand on the combo potential with Leonin Relic-Warder, Animate Dead, and any of your Aristocrats pieces. Here is an explanation of the Animate Dead + Leonin Relic-Warder type loop in case you are unfamiliar with it.

Depending on your budget and meta, Cover of Darkness could be an additional anthem to help you go on the offensive if needed.

Crow-Umbra on Isshin Warriors

Thanks for the explanation Andramalech. So, to confirm some games Isshin sits in your command zone as the commander, and other times it will be Jeska & Tymna in the command zone instead? I'm familiar with how partner commanders work, I just wasn't sure if you switched between Isshin and the partners, or if you worked out an agreement with your group to have all 3 in the command zone all at once.

It seems like your deck is more thematically tied to having Samurais and Warriors as your creature types? Kinda like a pseudo-tribal. Depending on your budget, I'd recommend giving Cover of Darkness a look, especially since you already have Conspiracy in your mainboard. You could even include Maskwood Nexus as a second copy of Conspiracy if you really wanted to make sure all of your creatures are Samurai and Warriors.

I love the deck! The only thing I can see is that the commander needs some more evasion so you can keep attacking and getting boast activations. Whispersilk Cloak, Shizo, Death's Storehouse, Cover of Darkness

Mind Bend change the text on all black to x, then play spells that prevent creatures being blocked by non black creatures

Cover of Darkness will help in that too.

Hey azja, first I just wanted to say thanks for the feedback and I plan on making a lot of those changes soon. I did want to talk about keeping Isochron Scepter just for cards like brainstorm and ponder effects to keep the card I want on top of my library but I do understand if it's just not enough value.Cover of Darkness Vampiric Tutor Chrome Mox and Mox Amber are definitely cards that I'll put in slowly over time but for now it's a little out of my budget

Hey I took a look at your list and wrote down some potential cuts/additions that you could make. I tried to keep the reasoning for each card short, so if you want me to elaborate on anything just let me know!!

Out: Nether Traitor 2 mana enablers are slow, requires a lot of black mana. In: Faerie Seer only costs 1, sets up top card for yuriko

Out: Shadowmage Infiltrator 3 mana enablers are very slow, doesn't deal combat damage if you ninjutsu it. In: Mothdust Changeling 1 mana ninja with conditional evasion

Out: Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire costs 5 mana total, has to survive a turn to tutor. In: Vampiric Tutor (the only budget option I can think of is Scheming Symmetry, which you already have)

Out: Crypsis too expensive for what is effectively unblockable. In: Cover of Darkness gives some evasion to all of your ninjas (budget option: Aqueous Form)

Out: Dark Ritual powerful card but yuriko doesnt have much use for triple black. In: Mox Amber yuriko enables this on turn 2 or 3 (budget option: Arcane Signet)

Out: Infiltrate. In: Slip Through Space same effect but replaces itself (though I prefer to just play more ninjas than unblockable spells!)

Out: Teferi's Time Twist not great since most of our creatures don't have an etb ability. In: Moon-Circuit Hacker cheap ninja that draws a card

Out: Ultimate Price removal that doesn't hit most commanders isn't ideal. In: Deadly Rollick (budget option: Dismember)

Out: Victim of Night not bad, but black has better removal. In: Infernal Grasp -2 life is pretty negligable in commander

Out: Commander's Sphere 3 mana ramp is quite slow for yuriko decks. In: Chrome Mox (budget option: Dimir Signet)

Out: Isochron Scepter we intentionally play lots of instants with cmc >2. In: Misdirection free "counterspell" that's also budget-friendly

Out: Preordain if you bottom any cards, you can't set up a card for yuriko. In: Ponder works better with yuriko

Out: Enter the Infinite generally uncastable. In: Blinkmoth Infusion also uncastable, but deals 14 damage instead of 12

If you have any questions or comments don't hesitate to reach out again!

Hello, and thank you for your reply! Truth be told, I had Mogis in this deck for the longest time. I took him out, however, because he isn't a minotaur and thus doesn't benefit from the tribal synergies in the deck. He was also kind of expensive, especially since he doesn't always have immediate board presence. You're right that his ability almost always deals 2 damage, but I never found this deck to be attritional enough to capitalize on a grindy effect like that.

I also had Whip of Erebos in this deck, but, to me at least, it faced similar problems as Mogis did, both being relatively costly cards that don't immediately impact the board. The party wide lifelink is great though. I might put it back in if sustain is needed. For now, I want to try and play a minotaur every turn for the most part.

I have considered both Hammer of Purphoros and Fervor for the deck but haven't found immediate need for them. They are always great cards to keep in mind though, as is Cover of Darkness and Goblin War Drums.

I already have Rage Reflection in the deck and I don't want Berserkers' Onslaught for that reason. Wound Reflection is a good card, but not a card I really want in this deck. especially at 6 mana.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts and suggestions. I appreciate it. :)
