Krydle of Baldur's Gate

Legendary Creature — Human Elf Rogue

Whenever this deals combat damage to a player, that player loses 1 life and mills a card, then you gain 1 life and scry 1.

Whenever you attack, you may pay . If you do, target creature can’t be blocked this turn.

Nice, multimedia! That has me off to a good start.

UPDATED ADDITIONS:

Brainstorm

Sol Ring

Command Tower

Triton Shorestalker

Treasure Cruise

Consign / Oblivion

Triton Shorestalker

Krydle of Baldur's Gate

Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar

Bolas's Citadel - I just like playing this card when I have the mana to pull it off.

Overwhelmed Apprentice - A placeholder until I can get a few more powerful scry cards.

UPDATED CUTS:

Temple of the Dragon Queen - I honestly don't know how this even got in here, but "Bye, Dragonicia!" along with 2 basic swamps and 1 island.

Hoard Robber

Gravedigger

Bone to Ash -- Wasn't suggested, but I honestly never use it when it's in my hand anyway...

Zombie Ogre

Scion of the Swarm

Still on the lookout for some others, especially Fallen Shinobi cause I want a set for my Modern Ninja deck as well!

Hey, well done so far on a budget for your first Commander deck.

Command Tower, Sol Ring, Arcane Signet are some budget staples to consider adding. Some budget Rogues to consider adding:

Budget cards that have high CMC, but can be cast for much less mana then their CMC are good with Yuriko. They can do lots of damage by revealing them with Yuriko and then cast them later on for less mana.

Dig and Cruise have Delve which lets you exile cards from your graveyard to reduce the colorless mana of the casting cost. Discovery/ Dispersal is a Split card and the CMC of it is the combined cost of both sides. It has a CMC of 7 and you can choose to cast either side, but only one side. The other two cards have Aftermath and just like Split cards the CMC is the combined cost of both sides. Commit / Memory has a CMC of 10. You first cast Commit, then if you want to can cast Memory from your graveyard, but then exile the card.


More budget cards that can let you manipulate the top card of your library give more control over what card you can reveal with Yuriko.

Brainstorm is powerful for one mana instant because if you have a high CMC card in your hand you can draw three cards and then put that card on top of your library before you attack.

Walk the Aeons and Notorious Throng are budget extra turn spells to have another turn to attack again. Throng works with Rogues when any Rogue does damage to a player you can cast Throng for it's Prowl cost to create Faerie Rogues and take an extra turn.

If interested in any of these suggestions I offer more advice including cuts to consider. Good luck with your deck.

Krydle of Baldur's Gate will help get you rogues through, and Tasha's Hideous Laughter would help with your mill plan. Just a couple ideas from the newest set that could help ya out.

Thank you kieferzilla! I appreciate it!

I'll start with the Forgotten Realms stuff first, then move on to the other cards:

Krydle of Baldur's Gate - Paying 2 mana for a creature that isn't a ninja and doesn't have any evasion isn't really where we want to be. His second ability is decent, but not nearly powerful enough to make the cut.

Silver Raven - It's no Faerie Seer , but it has some potential as an enabler. I definitely want to try it out, maybe in place of Tormented Soul since it can't be pitched to Force of Will and friends.

Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar - This card is powerful as well, but I think it just misses the cut. Its abilities are only relevant when you have a couple enablers and ninjas on the battlefield already, so I worry about it being too "win-more" for my playgroup. I would probably include this card in a more casual meta though.

Alrund's Epiphany - Seems decent, but just not quite as good as the other extra turn spells out there. I don't think it's worth the extra mana (compared to Time Warp or Temporal Manipulation ) even if it does come with two 1/1's. I would like to test it out at some point though.

Diabolic Vision - Looking 5 cards deep for 2 mana is definitely no joke, but being a sorcery and not an instant really makes this card seem meh to me. If you want to use it as topdeck manipulation, you have to cast it on your precombat main phase instead of in response to Yuriko's combat damage trigger, which means it isn't too late for an opponent to remove Yuriko and save themselves some damage. You also can't hold up countermagic and use it on the player-to-your-left's endstep like Dig Through Time . I think it's a reasonable option if you don't have something like Sensei's Divining Top or Vampiric Tutor though.

Mana Crypt - In my experience, it helps way more than it hurts. Since you have 40 life to work with in commander, taking 9-12 damage throughout a game is pretty negligible when you're ahead by 2 mana every turn. It's by no means necessary to include in a Yuriko deck though, since we don't have a lot of ways to utilize colourless mana.

I hope that all makes sense, let me know if you have any more questions/suggestions!

Hey azja I love the list! I am lookin to build somethin' similar.

I was wondering if you had considered any of the new Forgotten Realms cards yet, and what you might swap for them? Notably Krydle of Baldur's Gate , Silver Raven , and Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar

I also am looking for input on Alrund's Epiphany since it gives a flyer for ninjutsu and can be reduced in cost, sorta, with fortell.

One last card I had been looking at is Diabolic Vision to help with some top deck manipulation and maybe put a good ninja in your hand before attackin. Most of this stuff I've asked about could just be too slow for the deck but I was curious what you had to add!

Oh, and do you see Mana Crypt helping more than hurting usually? My playgroup could just run the game longer, we play a lot of removal and stuff, but it seems to outlast its welcome usually.

Thanks for any reply! :P

Dauthi Voidwalker is such a perfect fit for an Anowon deck. Krydle of Baldur's Gate and Lightfoot Rogue are two cards from the newest set that will serve you well here. Rogue Class might be another consideration here…

Hi GrimlockVIII! I agree - I need to actually play test the deck more to see if that is an issue or not. I am considering Krydle of Baldur's Gate as another creature option (even though legendary, it’s another creature on the battlefield). I also thought about adding another Pixie Guide and go down a copy of something else but I’m undecided!
If you have any suggestions please share! Thanks for the feedback, always helpful!
