Evacuation Discussion

With this low of a curve, consider Scapegoat as an anti wrath measure that gets around exile, tuck, -X-X, and other hard to dodge wraths while getting your eminence triggers again. I'd rather sac a token and eat a personal Evacuation than end up in topdeck mode and it allows you to overextend a little more.

Langass on Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow

So with the new set coming out there’s more ninjas so they’re an obvious include- here’s my two cents on switches..

Take out Wharf Infiltrator for Ingenious Infiltrator . Easy upgrade, Wharf really doesn’t provide that much as a 2 mana 1/1, there’s plenty of decks that run 1/1 mana dorks etc that can become easy chump blockers since they’d rather block then take the damage from a ninjutsu hit. Plus the ninja has infiltrator in the name still so flavour win yay! Finally, the card draw is AMAZING. Go wide with creatures that much faster.

I would switch Thada Adel, Acquisitor for Fallen Shinobi . Again they do similar things, however I’d rather get a free cast from an opponent and get the ninja triggered abilities over her. A 3 mana 2/2 isn’t so great either, even though I understand islandwalk, if the opponents don’t run blue, it’s just essentially a wasted slot or a chump blocker - which isn’t true to the deck.

Notion Thief I would definitely substitute for Changeling Outcast . I think the text you have to pay attention to is that it says you draw the extra card in their DRAW STEPS. Outside of that, like main phases, you don’t get that draw - so it’s way too situational and really doesn’t shut much down at all... unfortunately another wasted slot. The Changeling however, is a 1 mana 1/1 unblockable that is also considered a ninja!! Woohoo ninja paradise!

Nightveil Sprite out, Pteramander in. A 1 drop is better than the 2 drop. Nightveil gives you surveil, but you’ll be ninja’ing out most of the time anyway so that’s just an extra mana to drop the creature on the field, you basically graveyard a card if you don’t want it (and when you attack with ninjas you’re blindly going in to the next card anyway), and then spending an extra mana to do it him back on the battlefield. So in that process you could’ve saved a card from hitting the grave and saved 2 mana if you had of used Pteramander. It’s in your sideboard, id definitely use it.

Etrata, the Silencer out Windfall in. You have it in sideboard, it’s amazing. Not only will you refill your hand most likely in multiplayer games, always live by the rule that your opponents current hands are better than the ones they will get. They have plans for those hands, they may have tutored combo pieces, you just got rid of that and filled your hand to throw more creatures out. DEFINITELY use this card. If you’re sceptical why Etrata, yes the first half of her text sounds amazing that you exile a creature when you do combat damage with her and if you do 3 they lose. But you shuffle her into your library after you deal combat damage. It is super inefficient unfortunately, and you just spent 4 mana on a exile a creature card when there’s way better card disruption out there, or you could have spent the 3 to cast Windfall and maybe drawn into a wincon or lots more creatures?

I’d also switch Crystal Ball for Naga Ninja. I understand how useful scrying can be in Yuriko, but I also believe this guy outplays the card by far. Instead of scrying 2 each time (would’ve cost 4 to do the first one), you could have paid 3 mana to ninjutsu naga boi out, and created a copy of him, two ninjas for 3 mana over scry 2 for 4?! Next turn you would have scry 4 for 5 mana in total, whilst hypothetically you could have dealt damage with 2 more ninjas and created 2 more copies. I think you get where I’m going with this... the value is so insane in comparison.

This is just my opinion and what I would recommend, more ninjas for less mana, go wide! By the way if you find board wipes are getting to be bad news, id look at switching out Evacuation and Just the Wind for more counters. Some of my favourites are Arcane Denial for an extra card (even if the opponent gets 2), Muddle the Mixture - Transmute is just extra gravy, and Spell Pierce the classic. There is better ones, but these are just budget ideas I thought may assist. Also I mentioned evacuation, because even though it is a nice card, I feel better having more protection for my board over returning all creatures In response to my creatures dying - but that’s just my preference!

Anyway I hope you enjoy reading my thoughts on it, lemme know what you think!

One more thing i have noticed. Depending on your meta you might want some mass bounce. Evacuation AEtherize Wash Out Engulf the Shore Devastation Tide

Telepathy is underrated btw

Noire_Samhain on Cyclonic Rift replacement.

3 weeks ago

Few cards can properly mimic it, but Devastation Tide returns all non-land permanents to the hand, and is cheap for its miracle cost, and Evacuation can return all creatures including yours. There are the creatures with a similar ability like Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep for non-sea creature creatures when kicked, Aethersquall Ancient for all creatures except it, and or a conditional enemy only creature bounce through Scourge of Fleets , which relies on having a lot of islands out.

Edit- Noticed Devastation tide was recommended.

Pawstitute on Just a standard fog

3 weeks ago

I think Fog lists suffer from not having proactive threats against stuff like Burn or combo, where your fogs do nothing. This would be remedied in the sideboard, where you could play something like Thragtusk or Obstinate Baloth , and Vendilion Clique for disruption plus pressure. I don't think Modern currently facilitate a meta for reactive/passive decks. Control is dipping up and down as it is.

If you're going to the trouble of hurting yourself for the extra colour, you should also contemplate the sideboard cards it allows. I think, if I were to play Bant, I would bring in Wilderness Reclamation (but that's because I love the card and have bought into the hype), so that you can go nuts with instant speed wraths like Settle the Wreckage , Evacuation , or Cyclonic Rift , plus have a single Sphinx's Revelation to get you back into the game.

Downside with that plan is that you get shut down with Teferi, Time Raveler or Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir , but I don't think anyone's playing with those yet.

Peanuts on Muldrotha, Digging my own Grave

Oh, and you don't have any boardwipe which is really a bad idea in EDH. You could go for Toxic Deluge , really nice in black, or Evacuation , a cheaper Cyclonic rift.

Yup I really appreciate you being very easy to communicate with, as always. The Evacuation already has been an all star in the elf matchup.

EDIT - added links

Some Maybeboard cards I think should be in the main deck: Benthicore , Inspired Sphinx , Kederekt Leviathan , Pentavus , Intruder Alarm , and Soothsaying . Myr Turbine and Heartstone are kind of meh, I'd replace with Genesis Chamber and Unstable Obelisk . I'd also swap some counterspells - Geist Snatch , Summoner's Bane and Lazotep Plating in for Cancel , Dissipate and Rewind .

Cards I'd cut: Sage of Epityr , Talrand, Sky Summoner , Bane of Bala Ged , Polymorphous Rush .

Cards I'm not really impressed by: Stormsurge Kraken , Tidespout Tyrant , Windreader Sphinx (depends how much flying you end up with), Sphinx Ambassador , Darksteel Colossus , Pathrazer of Ulamog , It That Betrays . I think it's better to focus on big guys that also have ETB effects than use these.

Some other cards to consider (plus the ones I sent you): Erratic Mutation , Synthetic Destiny , Evacuation , Aether Gale , AEtherize , Crystal Ball , Interpret the Signs , Precognitive Perception , Seer's Lantern , Ugin's Insight , Treasure Map  Flip, Zhalfirin Void .
