Mardu Shadowspear Discussion

I agree with trying to capitalize on creatures a little more than noncreatures since you already have Drana, Liberator of Malakir , Zulaport Cutthroat , and Liliana Vess caring about them to one degree or another. I think the best creatures to look into would be vampires since you already have a decent shell for them. Gatekeeper of Malakir or Feast of Blood could swap for Geth's Verdict , Gifted Aetherborn or Nighthawk Scavenger could supplement Vampire Nighthawk , Pulse Tracker or Vampire of the Dire Moon could replace Mardu Shadowspear , Blood Artist could replace Cutthroat, Vito, Thorn of the Dusk Rose provides redundancy for Sanguine Bond , Pawn of Ulamog can provide sac fodder for cards like Ob Nix or Viscera Seer , Nullpriest of Oblivion is a flexible way to reanimate beefy monsters like Sangromancer , Vampire Nocturnus , Malakir Bloodwitch , Butcher of Malakir , or Kalitas, Bloodchief of Ghet . Finally, while not a vampire, I'd rather play Sidisi, Undead Vizier over Diabolic Tutor if you can't afford the OG 1-2 cost tutors. BTW, I'm not saying you should run all of these cards; just run what fits your playstyle.

Going into mardu might be a good idea. Otherwise disowned ancestor seems bad. Try Mardu Shadowspear

Village Rites is a strictly better Altar's Reap . I recommend 4x Whisper Squad over Mardu Shadowspear as they can easily grab you additional sac fodder. Also, I think Bastion of Remembrance is a much better Syr Konrad, the Grim . For an aggressive deck, the mana curve matters and the additional token is helpful too. Finally, and your mileage may vary on this since it looks like you're trying to include mostly non-rares and not recent sets, Lurrus of the Dream-Den would be a very good card to include, probably over Blood for Bones . Good luck!

I would lose the Herald of Dromoka for a cheap ass warrior or another lord. Cheap ones: Aven Skirmisher, Dragon Hunter (it's a 2/1 for one with upside), Goblin Cohort, Grim Initiate, Mardu Shadowspear, Mardu Woe-Reaper (should at least be in the sideboard), Somberwald Vigilante, Vampire Lacerator, and of course, the best one, Zurgo Bellstriker.

Hatred really good with yuriko to one shot someone with commander damage. really good against life gain decks
Coastal Breach good board wipe assuming you're in a 4 player game. it's cmc is 7 but only cost you 4 mana to play also resets your ninja's and etb creatures
Equilibrium is used to bounce your ninjas with the unblockable dudes since ninja's are kinda trash by themselves if they can't get through or you can bounce your opponents dudes too if you wanna play the tempo game
Mardu Shadowspear currently placeholder but in a pinch is a good creature to throw out with haste to quickly activate ninjitsu. decent floor but low ceiling on this card. you can probably find better but the haste effect is decent in my playgroup
Traveler's Amulet mainly used in the same capacity as fetch lands. helps thin the deck from lands so you're less likely to whiff with yuriko triggers
Silumgar Sorcerer with yuriko out you can flash this guy in to counter a creature spell by saccing yuriko and he's a flyer aswell so you can ninjitsu yuriko back in with him. rinse and repeat. cute combo but only really decent in a meta heavy with creatures. easily cuttable card.

Thanks for the reply DoanDoan.
You are playing a few cards I usually don't see in a Yuriko list. Would you be willing to comment on their use and effectiveness?
