Memnite

Artifact Creature — Construct

Memnite Discussion

As for the other combo, Krark-Clan Ironworks or Ashnod's Altar accomplish the exact same thing.

So sacrifice Memnite , or similarly, Ornithopter to anything, in this case either Krark-Clan Ironworks or Ashnod's Altar , gaining 2 colorless mana. This triggers Thornbite Staff , equipped to Emry, Lurker of the Loch . Emry untaps. Tap Emry, targetting the Memnite or Ornithopter in the graveyard, allowing you to cast it. Either costs 0, so you just cast it without a mana cost, but in this case even artifact creatures that have a converted mana cost of 1 will work. The Memnite or Ornithopter enters play, and you have 2 more colorless mana in your mana pool, or 1 colorless mana in your mana pool if running this combo with a CMC 1 artifact creature.

Thornbite Staff untaps whatever it is equipped to whenever a creature dies.

So sacrifice Memnite , or similarly, Ornithopter to anything, in this case Blasting Station , tapping it to deal 1 damage. This triggers Thornbite Staff , equipped to Emry, Lurker of the Loch . Emry untaps. Tap Emry, targetting the Memnite or Ornithopter in the graveyard, allowing you to cast it. Either costs 0, so you just cast it without a mana cost. The Memnite or Ornithopter enters play, untapping Blasting Station.

WarSpaniel You would equip emry with the Thornbite Staff and have Blasting Station on the field. You tap emry to do 1 damage to Memnite it goes ro the graveyard untapping emry from the 2nd ability of the staff. Then you use Blasting Station to kill memnite then tap emry to cast memenite from the graveyard for 0 mana it untaps Blasting Station kill again with blasting station which triggers thornbite to untap emry. Then repeat. If you had something like Altar of the Brood in play you could mill your oppents.

Solelyselesnya on Yuriko Turn and Burn - cEDH

Thanks for the detailed comment Hissp! It is very appreciated.

Truthfully, I have found Cabal Therapist to be minimally useful. Yes, it can reset yuriko, but really, what can't? I like the ideal of Sidisi's Faithful . I'll try it out soon as a more immediately impactful replacement.

I've been debating between Dispel and Abjure for this list. Just this last month I've been testing Abjure and it has been performing very well. Cheap, catch-all counters allow the deck to commit to the board more aggressively with less fear, and Abjure has been stellar at filling that role. I think I will officially make the switch.

Sakashima's Student , Mutavault , and Shizo, Death's Storehouse are all in my deck irl but I've somehow forgotten them on this list! You are absolutely right about Sakashima's Student , its a phenomenally versatile ninja. I'll update the list to reflect this.

Full disclosure, I'm not totally sold on Sakashima the Impostor . It tends to be a win more, and as you said, as its usually at its best when you are already in a good board position. I definitely wouldn't run both Sakashima and Spark Double . Its on the chopping block.

I've seen your list, and Entomb + Wonder / Filth looks spicy! I'm guessing the amount of mass-evasion a player will want will depend heavily on their meta composition. If playgroups tend to get clogged up on the ground, then these seems like great inclusions! I am lucky enough that I don't have a hard time connecting with ninjas (always at least one deck that commits minimally to the board), but I think it is great tech to have! That being said, the inclusion of more cheap changelings in Modern Horizons definitely raises my evaluation of cover of darkness.

Mission Briefing seems good. I keep telling myself that Snapcaster Mage is better in this list because he can be replayed with ninjutsu, but I have tended to undervalue scry (in this case surveil) in the past. I'll give this some testing. More brainstorming is always a good thing, and I suppose there is no reason why I couldn't run both.

And finally, Memnite and Phyrexian Walker for the win! (Seriously, every Yuriko player should have these 0-mana creatures in their arsenal).

Instead of working around with sacrifice for mana, it is possible to use etb or death mana to pull off your combo.

You can use Memnite , Burning-Tree Emissary and Priest of Urabrask as your creatures, and Altar of Dementia or Blasting Station as the 3rd combo piece.

Doing it this way would allow you to put Reckless Bushwhacker and/or Goblin Bushwhacker in the sideboard, and turn into a bad 8-whack deck for when the opponent inevitably brings in graveyard and other hate, and you know your combo can't do it.

But, this does slow your deck down by a turn.

Demarge on Chulane vs. Roon?

2 months ago

ZendikariWol it's casual commander, both would honestly be viable, they can pick the one with the cooler art or the one they have already, but chulane's raw power would still give the casual player more consistency, like Memnite has synergy with him that doesn't exist with roon so there's many more ways to build chulane than there is for roon, a deck with mana dorks, low cmc utility creatures, and lands could make for a weird deck for chulane that would be fun to try out.

SynergyBuild on Chulane’s Tale of the Instant Win

So far, while very expensive, Chulane, Teller of Tales's easiest combo is Cloudstone Curio .


The lines are pretty easy. Use all of the one-drop creatures you can, think Llanowar Elves , Mother of Runes , Noble Hierarch , Birds of Paradise , etc. and you can draw your deck as long as you have 2 of them and an untapped land able to cast each of them (2 forests if you have 2 one-drop green creatures.)

Play 1 of the creatures, drawing a card, putting a land into play. Trigger Cloudstone Curio , bouncing the tapped land you used to cast the 1st 1 drop, then when the creature resolves bounce the 2nd 1-drop.

Tap the new untapped land you put into play to cast the 2nd one-drop, drawing a card, putting the land you prior bounced from the Cloudstone Curio into play, bouncing the 2nd land, then when the 2nd creature resolves, return the 1st creature to play.

This loop goes to draw your deck until you hit a 'free', non-artifact creature off of your infinite draw: Cloud of Faeries being the best IMO. It allows you to make 1 mana per 2 cards in your library as you go off, letting you get enough mana to win with Laboratory Maniac in the midst of yout 'storm turn.'


Running Shield Sphere , Endless One , Walking Ballista , Hangarback Walker , Phyrexian Marauder , Ugin's Conjurant , Memnite , Ornithopter , and Phyrexian Walker all work as powerful 0-mana Explore s. Endless One / Ugin's Conjurant work as the non-artifact one-drops for the above combo. Walking Ballista and Hangarback Walker (to a lesser extent) are backup mana dumps for all of the mana this deck can generate as well.

I recommend these highly. Running them, and going hard into the combo I discussed brings other cards higher into value as well:

Trophy Mage , a powerful creature that tutors for Trophy Mage , Trinket Mage tutors a Sol Ring , Chrome Mox , or 0 drop creature like Walking Ballista , giving at worst 2 Explore s for 3 mana or a Explore + Sol Ring . Not bad value on either. Recruiter of the Guard can find Trophy Mage , or almost any dork/value creature, and is just good value too.

Some lists run Spellseeker too, as it can find Eladamri's Call / Worldly Tutor to get any creature, Mystical Tutor to get any instant/sorcery, Enlightened Tutor often for Cloudstone Curio and other artifacts/enchantments, as well as occasionally protection/removal like Swords to Plowshares , Cyclonic Rift , Heroic Intervention , Dovin's Veto , or Nature's Claim .

Just some thoughts.
