You have no maximum hand size.

Ok so I didn't check to see if any of these were in the deck already but... here's my list of suggestions!

It's a lot of cards so...

Again some of these may be cut worthy but off the cuff this is what I came up with. Also I didn't include any ninjas... I figure they are easy enough to find

Virlym on Yuriko (Optimized) Primer

Hello, been a while since I've really done much here, but I saw a highlight for your deck and thought I'd stop by. Your Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow seems to be designed for a higher-end playgroup than mine (given the Force of Will, Mana Crypt, etc.), but I figured I'd throw in a couple of fun things to consider.

First: 2-piece combo, Library of Leng + Unfulfilled Desires. Unfulfilled Desires is basically the only repeatable card that makes you discard as part of an ability instead of a cost so it can actually work with Library of Leng. You have 3 Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow triggers on the stack and 3 open mana? Vampiric Tutor up a bomb like Draco before the first trigger resolves. After the trigger resolves and you dome your opponents, activate Unfulfilled Desires to draw a card and discard Draco back to the top of your library. Then repeat for the rest of your triggers (mana allowing). While it's a tad slow, it packs a huge punch. It also allows for some extra enablers such as Looter il-Kor. So even if you don't have any ninjas to go around, you can resolve Looter il-Kor before a Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow trigger and discard something big in your hand to the top of your deck with Library of Leng to reveal for Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow's trigger.

Another 2-drop enabler to consider is Nether Traitor. While it does cost 2 mana, it has haste and shadow, so it's not really that bad. The only issue with it is the double black cost when you're building heavy blue for Force of Will. But it also has the upside of being able to come back to play on its own when something else of yours dies.

Due to my friends liking graveyard decks, I also opted to run some disruption in the form of Weathered Runestone. While it does turn off Nether Traitor's last ability, it also lets me run Dimir Infiltrator as an enabler and tutor. The 3-cost, sorcery speed tutor is a little slow, but being able to get things like Weathered Runestone, Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive, Scroll Rack and Cyclonic Rift for games when I've been faced with someone stalling out my early aggression is nice.

Whether you add anything in or not is up to you and how they fit in your playgroup. Was just nice being able to share. Hope you continue your shadowy fun. :)

Maybe Library of Leng can be of use; prevents you from decking yourself as well as losing cards you might want to use later.

Yesterday on Does Spy Kit change the …

Neotrup, that checks out. So I could make it specifically a silver-bordered issue by having a Library of Leng or something.

Dracoson, Took a hot minute responding because that absolutely checks out based on how Over My Dead Bodies is written, but I was sure that MaRo had declared the card had a bit more functionality that didn't fit in the text box. But I can't find anything about that now. Oh well.


If anybody sees this in a Google search years down the line and knows what I'm talking about, I'll still be interested if you could comment it here.

KyleWynne22 if that's the case, you could probably get away just fine with cutting the Survival of the Fittest for Sylvan Library. Of the others you mentioned, the only one of them that I'd say is most needed is the Serra's Sanctum, but then again it's price alone is more than the other three combined. Wheel of Sun and Moon is super nice, but something like Library of Leng is a really budget substitute; only real reason we run Wheel over it is because Wheel is an enchantment. Greater Auramancy just provides additional redundancy that Sterling Grove provides, and you're probably fine with most cards in the maybeboard as a substitute. Deserted Temple you could probably just throw in another basic land. Really it's only purpose is to untap Serra's Sanctum and Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx.

I know I already said you could replace the Survival of the Fittest with Sylvan Library, but another option is Congregation at Dawn, as it's a more direct tutor.

RambIe on Baral, Counter

Consistent Countering With Diminishing Returns
Lets say in a 4 player pod starting with your turn you cast baral and pass turn, next player does nothing, next player casts a key combo peace - you counter, full of hate they cast a removal spell on baral - Pause
In this scenario you have only interacted with 1 player, you have already spent about 5 mana, do you have another counter spell available to protect baral?, do you have the mana to cast it?, If you save baral will you have any response left for the last players turn ?
baral them self increases your odds of getting another counter spell but it is not card advantage because of the diminishing return, 3 card in hand, counter a spell -1, draw +1, discard -1, 2 cards left in hand

In order to over come this i would suggest start with (25) counter spells, (15) mana rocks, (10) card draw permanents. this is a good baseline to start 50 cards leaves you room for 30-40 lands with 9-19 cards left to come up with a win condition. these numbers could always be adjusted depending on how the deck performs

As for how the deck is right now now, i would suggest utilize the wasted resources your discarding. Library of Leng & Bag of Holding

Curator's Ward to protect your boss? Vega, the Watcher for card draw every time your ability goes off.

It's a shame Library of Leng is over a dollar. That and Putrid Imp work well together.

Your whole world is going to change when you realize Library of Leng and Anje are a match made in heaven.

What you want to do with infinite untap/tap/draw/discard triggers is up to you. I reommend Bone Miser, Glint-Horn Buccaneer, and Surly Badgersaur as good places to start.
