Gudul Lurker Discussion

jakeelephant006 on its too late they are already under your bed

This deck performs very well with some decently large deficiencies. I think you need to cut some weaker cards (sorceries and creatures mostly) and add in more Ninjas and ninja synergies.

Cards to Cut: Creatures: Definite cuts are Jeskai Infiltrator, but I'd also heavily consider trimming Dark Impostor, Deathcult Rogue, Etrata, the Silencer, and Nezumi Cutthroat.

Sorceries: Definitely cut Hour of Eternity, Kefnet's Last Word, Paranoid Delusions and consider trimming Ghostform, Slip Through Space, or Stealth Mission.

Artifacts, Enchantments, Instants, Planeswalkers, and Lands: I would definitely cut Briber's Purse, Fatal Push, and Vraska, Scheming Gorgon while also giving thought to the merits of including Skygames, Bontu's Monument, Forge of Heroes, Unclaimed Territory, and of, or at least the Amonkhet, cycling lands.

The cards I have recommended are either slow, have low to zero synergy with the rest of the deck, or are typically weak in commander.

Cards to Add Creatures: Ninjas, ninjas, and more ninjas (plus some cheaper unblockables for good measure). There are 19 Ninjas in mtg history (excluding changelings). You have 11 in this deck. I think you ought to have more. The cheapest are Mistblade Shinobi, Okiba-Gang Shinobi, Skullsnatcher, Throat Slitter, and Walker of Secret Ways. Higure, the Still Wind and Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni are both reasonable splurges in terms of powerful Ninjas to acquire. Now for other creatures to enable Ninjitsu. First off, I could have included Changeling Outcast in the last section since it is also a Ninja and you should absolutely be running it in here. Other small unblockables for you to Ninjitsu into are Gudul Lurker, Slither Blade, Tormented Soul, Faerie Seer, Mothdust Changeling, Gingerbrute, Dimir Infiltrator, Baleful Strix, Invisible Stalker, Augury Owl, Sage Owl, Spire Owl, and Cloud of Faeries. All of these cards are less than 3 cmc, and are either entirely unblockable or have good etb/ltb or dealing combat damage synergy (and are mostly pretty cheap too). I'd recommend adding at least 3 or 4 of them in addition to the above ninjas.

Other cards: This section is mostly for general things that you could do to make this deck more consistent and enjoyable to pilot, but there are a couple specific synergies I think you're missing out on. They're both pretty intertwined so I'll just address them together. I think you could be putting in a few more cards that are good to reveal off of Yuriko's trigger and ways to manipulate the top of your library so you get those card when they are most impactful. I am referring to cards like Treasure Cruise, Sibsig Muckdraggers, Temporal Trespass, Dig Through Time, Draco, Consign / Oblivion, Murderous Cut, Far / Away, Curtains' Call, Into the Story, Submerge, Commandeer, Commit / Memory, Discovery / Dispersal, Rags / Riches, In Garruk's Wake, and any other high cost card that has an alternate mana cost, mana reducing ability, split card, or is a high impact card. Then you could also throw in a few ways to manipulate the top of your library like Brainstorm, Ponder, Serum Visions, Tamiyo's Epiphany, and Crystal Ball. The only other synegystic thing you could put in here is making your other creatures Ninjas as well with Conspiracy, Xenograft, Arcane Adaptation, and Amorphous Axe.

Otherwise, you could probably add in some more ramp (Sol Ring, Mind Stone, Star Compass, etc.), card draw (see cantrips above and Last Thoughts), board wipes (could probably replace Bontu's Last Reckoning with some of the ones from the last section or just add those ones or some other good boardwipes) and spot removal or counterspells (I don't see a lot of good ways to deal w/ non-creature permanents in here).

azja on Yuriko...Help!!!

6 months ago

Hi, welcome to edh!

First off, I want to say I think the deck looks great so far! I've been playing Yuriko for about 8-9 months now, and here are some things I'd suggest:

  1. Dismember -5/-5 is sometimes not enough to kill the main threat at the table, maybe replace it with Far / Away (less limiting, higher cmc) or Reality Shift (gets around indestructible)

  2. Doom Blade too many people play black, Hero's Downfall is much less narrow

  3. Into the Story not super effective if you're not playing mill, Bident of Thassa synergizes with your deck more

  4. Lightning Greaves is not bad, but Whispersilk Cloak also gives Yuriko unblockable

  5. Mu Yanling I personally don't like planeswalkers in Yuriko decks. Since you won't have very good blockers, it likely won't survive until your next turn. I'd play something like Thassa, God of the Sea instead

  6. Liliana Vess same reason as number 5, maybe play Scheming Symmetry instead

  7. Decree of Pain the cycling mode hurts your creatures much more than the rest of the table since you play lots of 1/1 's and 2/2 's. Commit / Memory has a cmc of 10, and can be a temporary removal spell or counterspell

  8. In Garruk's Wake Yuriko decks are not good at hitting 9 mana. Although not a direct replacement, Consign / Oblivion is a card I think every Yuriko deck can run

  9. Kindred Dominance unless you have an effect like Conspiracy out on the board, this hurts you a lot too. I'd play something like Evacuation instead. It's instant speed, and you can re-play your creatures a lot faster than your opponents can.

  10. Dauthi Embrace using 2 black mana each turn just to make one creature unblockable is hard in most Yuriko decks. Try Aqueous Form instead

  11. Soothsaying also a pretty heavy mana investment for its effect. Although this card is not very budget-friendly, Sensei's Divining Top is much, much better

12-16. Inkfathom Infiltrator, Invisible Stalker, Quickling, Shadowmage Infiltrator, and Spark Double aren't good enough to justify their mana cost in my opinion. Some replacements I would suggest are Changeling Outcast, Dimir Infiltrator, Gudul Lurker, Mist-Cloaked Herald, Tormented Soul, and Baleful Strix

I hope this was helpful! If you want to check out my Yuriko deck, the link is https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/26-07-19-yuriko-edh/

Hoobynobber7395 on Yuriko, the Tiger’s Shadow

6 months ago

this deck looks great, some cards i would add are Ornithopter, Gudul Lurker, Scroll Rack, Augury Owl, Dimir Keyrune,Discovery / Dispersal, and Aqueous Form

heres my reasoning, Ornithopter and Gudul Lurker are more low cost drops to get yuriko out quicker, and with Ornithopter you can drop it with no cost to you.

Scroll Rack may be pricy but stacks your deck very well to deal as much damage as possible with yuriko

Augury Owl allows you to scry and stack the top of your library, you can swap out Baleful Strix for it, you have tons of card draw when yuriko triggers

Dimir Keyrune lets you have a mana rock and a possible creature to ninjitsu yuriko in, can be swapped with Dimir Signet

Discovery / Dispersal is another way to stack your deck, and give you better chances to deal more damage

Aqueous Form can be swapped with Smoke Shroud, Smoke Shroud doesnt allow tetsukos ability work if you give yuriko +1/+1, but Aqueous Form lets you have another unblockable ninja, especially if it's power is higher than one

DSquirrel on Yuirko, the Sadist

1 year ago

you need some cheap unblockable creatures, Changeling Outcast , Dimir Infiltrator , Gudul Lurker , Phantom Ninja , Slither Blade , Triton Shorestalker .

some people like cheap 1/1 flyers, Faerie Seer

There are some good changelings that count as ninjas, Graveshifter , Venomous Changeling

Spark Double can copy Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow as it won't be legendary, allowing for huge damage potential.

Cunning Evasion protects form blockers

Neurok Stealthsuit is great for protecting single targets

MagisterArtium on Two Creatures With Quietus Spike

1 year ago

When two creatures with Quietus Spike attack:
- both creatures assign combat damage at the same time
- afterwards, both Quietus Spikes trigger after one another.

Latch Seeker and Gudul Lurker are both equipped with Quietus Spike and assign combat damage.

Enemy has 20 life:
(-3) + (-1) = 16 life.
1QS > 16 - 8 = 8 life.
2QS > 8 - 4 = 4 life.

Is this correct?

-Fulcrum on Yuriko Ninja attack

1 year ago

I don't know if you're trying to do the exact same thing, but I play a fair few 1 drops to consistently Ninjutsu Yuriko in on turn 2. Stuff like Gudul Lurker , Faerie Seer , Mist-Cloaked Herald , Mothdust Changeling , Pteramander , Siren Stormtamer , and Triton Shorestalker in addition to the ones you already have. And while it's not a 1 drop, I also really like Thalakos Seer , lots of ninjutsu interactions.

KidKontrol on Ninja strike force

1 year ago

-Cut fallen shinobi, too high ninjitsu cost, replace with a killspell like Tragic Slip .

-Ninja of the new moon isn't up to snuff, replace with Ninja of the Deep Hours .

-Replace the phantom ninja with Mistblade Shinobi .

-Mist-Syndicate Naga will probably be soft to a lot of decks, replace with Changeling Outcast .

-Choking tethers needs to be another killspell too, or maybe Gudul Lurker

Hey, really well made Commander deck, but it's only 94 cards :)

Thalakos Seer is quite good with Ninjutsu, getting value with Yuriko. Ninja of the Deep Hours , Higure, the Still Wind and Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni are good Ninjas, worth playing with Yuriko. Higure is great with Arcane Adaptation because then it can tutor for any creature in your library since all creatures are considered Ninjas.

All the low mana cost unblockable creatures and flying creatures are good to get a fast Yuriko onto the battlefield. Unblockable: Slither Blade , Triton Shorestalker , Mist-Cloaked Herald , Gudul Lurker , Dimir Infiltrator , Tormented Soul . Flying: Mausoleum Wanderer , Pteramander , Jace's Phantasm . Thada Adel, Acquisitor has a good ability for multiplayer Commander since most opponents decks have artifacts. Fabricate or Trinket Mage are worth playing just to tutor for Top. Good luck with your deck.
