I agree that modal counter spells are not wasted. Iv’e got Mystic Confluence and I am going to add Supreme Will and Archmage's Charm.

I quite like cards that return perms to the hand. It can benefit me as well under the right conditions. Came across Umbilicus. Going to play test and see how it fits.

On that front, there is also Cyclonic Rift. I’m reminded of all the hate ppl get for this card whenever I bring up putting it in the 99. Is it really that bad compared to... say In Garruk's Wake.

I am also going to replace Mirri's Guile with Sylvan Library. Card draw and potential top decking seems more optimal.

I will need to keep looking for a board wipe that I am fine cascading into. That is the draw back I have.

Kindly,

Epicurus I was looking and trying to think of anything that would be better but it's not better than Torment of Hailfire since it's so good late game. I was thinking possibly In Garruk's Wake in case you can't get enough ramp but I don't think this deck has that problem. Just something to consider I guess, since you know your deck better than I do.

Could be up your alley of 'chaos and jank'. I used it for awhile in a different deck just because it was fun. Talent of the Telepath can be a gamble but also can make for some memorable plays (insert deadpool gif 'Stupid! Worth it!') Like nabbing an In Garruk's Wake pre combat XD, using someone's Cyclonic Rift w/o overload, etc. Never know what's lurking near the tops of those piles.

I comment while keeping in mind a low budget.

Cut 3 mana ramp when possible:

Cards I'd cut: - 2 lands. 36 is enough if you smooth the curve a bit. - In Garruk's Wake -> Decree of Pain ? Maybe, idk, it depends. But you get more chances to use it, trust me I know something of dimir ramp myself. - Oona, Queen of the Fae -> Be careful. X costs are tough to pay for in dimir and more often than not, paying 5-10 mana to get 2 1/1 farie rogues isn't worth, it wastes your turn. Recall: lands are colorless and most decks you'll face are multi-colored. Oona isn't evena rogue in the first place, so no advantage to attack with her. - Obelisk of Urd -> Not so strong. It buffs all your rogues, but at the cost of using your whole mana pool, or to keep your rogues from attacking. Kinda wastes your turn, and you wanna be fast.

Cards I suggest:

Prying Blade OUT Explorer's Scope IN

Prying Blade has always been terrible in this deck. After all, while our evasive creatures can make mana with it, they are usually bounced before they do damage, and hence it can't pay for its own equip cost. Plus if pirates are the eternal enemies of ninjas, then why would they use a pirate sword? Explorer's Scope is great because in this deck we'll often know what the top card of our library is, and thus we have a turn one playable card that we can often use to ramp out lands. Also, ninjas need spy scopes for their espionage activities.

In Garruk's Wake OUT Devastation Tide IN

While IGW can provide great damage when we draw it off the top on a Yuriko trigger, it is way too expensive as a board wipe, and the best board wipes for Yuriko are blue ones, since they put our tools right back in our hands to be re-used again. Also, we can usually cast DT for its miracle cost, which is great. Additionally, IGW just feels like the wrong flavor for this deck.

As a different approach, you're in . Blockers mean nothing if you kill them all. If you have enough ramp, In Garruk's Wake and Kindred Dominance are options.

Hey Walrighti, +1!

@your post

Congrats on your first deck! You have a lot of fun cards in here and it looks great! I imagine you want to tune and make it even more efficient so here are some ideas...

Add 3 categories: #Combo, #Lifegain, and #Evasion; and then sort your maybeboard the same way you've done your mainboard to easily rank your choices within a category (By "combo" I mean all your "if-then" cards like Trudge Garden that are slower and don't work by themselves). Remove #Creatures (most of them are #Combo).

Avoid most cards above 4 cmc... Willowdusk is fast and fragile, so play into that... Also, prioritize cards that can do 2 or more things or that give value on ETB... If you have pet cards that don't really fit and that hurt to cut, put them in a "I'll build that theme later" list.

(All under $3)

+1 Devoted Druid ... this card is a beast

+1 Rampant Growth

+1 Arcane Signet

+1 Golgari Signet

+1 Talisman of Resilience ... #Ramp

+1 Elves of Deep Shadow

+1 Elvish Mystic

+1 Fyndhorn Elves

+1 Llanowar Elves ... #Ramp... the elves enable Willowdusk combos on turn 3.

+1 Marwyn, the Nurturer

+1 Viridian Joiner ... #Ramp... #Combo

+1 Boompile ... its a gem (hint: don't tap it on your turn) +1 Nightmare Unmaking

+1 Killing Wave

+1 Massacre Girl ... #Wipe

+1 Kenrith's Transformation

+1 Beast Within ... #Removal

+1 Swiftfoot Boots

+1 Inspiring Call

+1 Oblivion's Hunger

+1 Rush of Vitality

+1 Sheltering Word

~1 Slippery Bogbonder

+1 Golgari Charm ... #Evasion

+1 Haunted Cloak

+1 Chariot of Victory

+1 Charge Through

~1 Tuskguard Captain

~1 Rancor ... Trample and haste are important... #Evasion

~1 Destined ... the choices are really good.

+1 Deepwood Ghoul

+1 Mischievous Poltergeist

+1 Soul Channeling ... #Combo with Willowbark and stick to the board...

~1 Phyrexian Processor ... fun?

~1 Lurking Evil ... maybe?

~1 Solidarity of Heroes ... #Combo

~1 Ooze Flux ... tokens at instant speed?

~1 Retribution of the Ancients ... removal?

+1 Garruk, Primal Hunter

+1 Mindless Automaton

+1 Thought Gorger ... (leaves)

+1 Life's Legacy

+1 Return of the Wildspeaker ... #Draw

~1 Essence Harvest

+1 Bloodspore Thrinax

+1 Triskelion ... #Combo

+1 Nighthawk Scavenger ... #Fatty

...Always play at least 10 ramp spells under 3 cmc.

...Playtest and make sure Willowbark consistently makes a fatty (with evasion) before turn 6-7.

Here's another Willowdusk thread.

Happy building :)

TheVectornaut on Black and White - please help!

To stay more in black, I would consider some sort of vampire sacrifice, counters, and/or lifedrain strategy. Your black cards that could work well in such a deck would be Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim , Embodiment of Agonies , Kambal, Consul of Allocation , Knight of the Ebon Legion , Mortician Beetle , Souls of the Faultless , Castigate , Disentomb , Gerrard's Verdict , Revival / Revenge , Despark , and Grim Return . Most of the other black cards are at least playable as well. The only two I'd cut in most circumstances are Underworld Dreams and In Garruk's Wake . The former needs more build-around while the latter just costs too much to be a consistent boardwipe.

Cards I'd look at adding for such a build might be Gatekeeper of Malakir , Anowon, the Ruin Sage , Sangromancer , Dictate of Erebos , Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet , Victim of Night , Indulgent Aristocrat , Pawn of Ulamog , Grim Haruspex , Silversmote Ghoul , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Vampire Nighthawk , Vampire of the Dire Moon , Malakir Cullblade , Blood Artist , Urge to Feed , Feast of Blood , Heliod, Sun-Crowned , Archangel of Thune , Cruel Celebrant , Drana's Emissary , Indulging Patrician , Malakir Bloodwitch , Marauding Blight-Priest , Sanctum Seeker , Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose , and Pious Evangel  Flip.

As a side note, to go infinite with Sanguine Bond , Vizkopa Guildmage , or Vito, the card you need is actually Exquisite Blood which is unfortunately quite expensive.
