Ingenious Infiltrator Discussion

Yes! Reaper King! That card has always been close to my heart, so it's always great to see a deck for him.

I've brewed with it extensively, so I have some suggestions for you:

Due to all of the changelings, you can really abuse those creature types. Naban, Dean of Iteration will duplicate triggers with "scarecrows" and Rattlechains can grant them all flash.

Gilt-Leaf Archdruid , if it's within budget, allows for quite a bit of card draw and a win-condition attached to it.

Gisa and Geralf will be able to recur the changelings for later use.

Knight Exemplar is fantastic defense for your board, Azami, Lady of Scrolls can draw many cards, Sygg, River Guide can protect creatures, and Ingenious Infiltrator can be awesome if you start to swarm. With so many creatures, Call to the Kindred could be cute.

Harsh Mercy or Kindred Dominance can be largely one-sided wraths, so that's something to note.

Reaper King is a massive target whenever he hits the field, so it's important to have a few backup plans.

Good luck with Scarecrows and Vindicate EVERYTHING!

hungry000, if we have Ingenious Infiltrator , we're usually drawing tons of cards and don't need more help. Drawing 5 cards a turn is not much better than drawing 4 - that's what we call win-more. Meanwhile, drawing 2 cards a turn with curious obsession is much better than 1 when we don't have a ninja. Obsession serves as the 9th ninja to improve the consistency of our deck.

I know this question is less helpful since this deck is Modern, but what are your thoughts on Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow ? She's "essentially" Ingenious Infiltrator but allows you to burn for cmc off the draws, which, for your ninja's and pitch spells can be pretty high. However you do have to reveal the cards you draw, which seems like a hard downside when your opponent knows what counters and removal your getting (and if your getting any). On top of that shes legendary. I'm making a legacy deck that functions on the same idea of this deck.

With changeling outcast in the list, you will want to test Ingenious Infiltrator as a spellstutter/clique/earwig reset.

This is just food for thought, but it could be worth replacing Miscreants or Faerie Seers with more Changeling Outcast s to get extra triggers off Ingenious Infiltrator . At the very least I'd cut the single Curious Obsession to fit another Outcast in, as I feel that the ninja synergy and increased 1-drop consistency is better than whatever benefit one Curious Obsession could offer.

I was tinkering with U/B faerie/ninja deck awhile back, but felt like the cards just weren't there to really pull it off, but it appears modern horizons changes that dramatically with Changeling Outcast , Faerie Seer , and Ingenious Infiltrator . You have provided much inspiration. I'm personally not a fan of Disrupting Shoal since you have to match the mana cost with your discard, but I can see where it works in this deck, though I do think more Thoughtseize could do more leg work.

For Modern discard options, red has access to Faithless Looting , Cathartic Reunion , and Burning Inquiry , all of which come down quick and can get cards into both your hand and graveyard; Blue has Discovery / Dispersal and Ideas Unbound , as well as Chart a Course , which you already have in the list and is nice because you can pick if you want to discard with it or not.

Looking at the Ingenious Infiltrator vs. Ninja of the Deep Hours , she's a hard call -- Infiltrator is finally giving the tribe a much needed payoff, but the double mana symbols make it less reliable to cast on turn 2 than Deep Hours, so it's up to how you feel about the situation. If you do decide to run the Infiltrator, you'll want to swap the Slither Blades out for Changeling Outcast s, as they are also unblockable and count as ninjas.

Mist-Syndicate plays nasty with Tetsuko, but that's probably its only draw right now. Maybe a Wingcrafter ? I'm not sure, I'm still theorycrafting on that one right now. :x
