Nordlys on I'll have the Full Rack with a Side of Rats Please

Hi there! How is it going? I know this deck was uploaded many years ago, but since it says it was updated two weeks ago from now, I'll drop a comment.

Even though it is a budget deck, you can still put one or two Liliana, Waker of the Dead since it is an economic card that does what you need.

Notes: - 21 lands seems too few for a deck that discards lands to Raven's Crime and also sacrifices lands to Smallpox - 3 copies of Murderous Cut seems too much since you won't be able to quickly drop 15 cards to your graveyard for it's delve. I really like the card, but the safest choice would be to play a singleton (only 1 copy) since you don't to see more than 1 in your hand. So maybe replace 2 copies of it for Fatal Push or Bloodchief's Thirst - Taking out all 8 racks for the whole rat pack would turn your discard cards kinda useless since you won't be getting any advantage out of your empty handed opponent (except for that single Nezumi Shortfang  Flip ). So maybe what you should for the second match is to take out the Smallpox and the Wrench Mind and also the Raven's Crime since you will prefer to discard those extra lands to Pack Rat instead of discarding them to Raven's.

What do you think of Path of Peril over Bontu's Last Reckoning: it helps you against most aggro and Lurrus Decks ?
Also since you don't have many cards to empty your own graveyard a 1-of Murderous Cut seems good, either main- or sideboard.
For the manabase: You can probably run 1x Fetid Heath over 1x Godless Shrine to cast the combination of Flagstones of Trokair + Smallpox more consistent on Turn 2.

Wallis how u keep beating me to every modern deck

I agree that you need turn 1 plays. For this kind of deck, I suggest targeted discard: 4x Inquisition of Kozilek is the best one that isn't expensive.

I second cutting all mill-only cards. You don't need them to make Drown in the Loch good because of fetchlands and discard.

Nightveil Specter doesn't fit with your gameplan really, same with Siren. You need to cut down on creatures anyways in this kind of deck since you are presumably stealing your opponents threats instead.

Minion's Return I assume is there to enchant and steal your opponents stuff, which is why its different from Unearth. But its not that good so I'd still cut it, while Unearth is really not a bad card here with all the 3 drops you have.

Second the suggestion of Counterspell. I'd add some cantrips like Consider for consistency. Soul Manipulation is one of my pet cards that I really like but 4x is too much, I recommend 2x. For additional removal 1x Murderous Cut is decent.

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

Hey Azja! As always thanks for getting back to me :)

Great to hear Gingerbrute is working out for you, I've definitely have good experiences with the card since adding it. I was actually considering to purchase Personal Tutor, but looks like I can spend that money somewhere else then. In regards to Consider, I actually mixed my cards up. I meant Otherworldly Gaze from the same set. which seemed pretty good to me as it also fuels the graveyard when necessary and can be cast at instant speed (twice). Not sure it beats out Ponder though? I'm unsure if I can fit both in the deck.

I've just ordered a few copies of Dauthi Voidwalker so I am looking forward to giving that card a try, do you end up using it as an enabler often? I'd assume it just sits on the board for as long as possible.

For me I'm really split on Opposition Agent, I feel like if I can get it out early it completely screws up my opponents early land plays giving them issues playing fetchlands (of which there are a good amount in the pods I play Yuriko in). Later in the game i'll likely have the mana open to flash it out as well, but it may take some time to find the right moment, it also feels like somewhat of a removal magnet as it needs to be dealt with before tutoring for a wincon for example. However it doesn't really further my own strategy directly, and is unlikely to be used as an enabler. I'm genuinely having a hard time with this one.

I've just added Street Wraith to my main deck so I'm curious to see how it performs for me, I didn't think of the interaction with Temporal Mastery, seems good! Also, I've added Abjure and it really has felt like a decent addition to the counterspell package as the downside tends to be manageable (and sometimes adds more delve-fodder)

I'll see if I can get ahold of Boon of the Wish-Giver, to me the card just seems to make sense in Yuriko. I'm currently running 32 lands with a ton of fetches and I still feel like I've been hitting lands way too often (maybe I've just been unlucky recently) But it makes me consider cutting a Land for the card as it can be cycled as well.

You are right, Scion of Draco probably isn't the right choice, Enter the Infinite is definitely an option, however I feel it may be better to raise the CMC of my deck across the board a little. I'm looking into adding more delve cards and cards that synergise with that. Maybe Murderous Cut, Otherworldly Gaze, Frantic Search, Treasure Cruise. Perhaps I could add cards that untap lands as well, a Treachery, Cloud of Faeries, Time Spiral is what I'm looking at currently.

Maybe I've just had a few - not so great games recently and I should give it more games before I rush to change things around that much.

I am very curious to see what what the new Kamigawa Set will bring, here's hoping there will be some good additions for Yuriko.

@NinjaBunny01 - I would say probably $5 or less honestly. I do have Necropotence so I will figure out how to slot that in. In addition to the cards I listed earlier, I am also found Mystical Tutor, Cruel Tutor, Lim-Dul's Vault, and Wishclaw Talisman. Those are going to slot in as soon as I work out what to remove for each of them. Haha, kind of leaning toward Murderous Cut, Treasure Cruise, Bring to Light, Tribute Mage, and Krosan Grip. What would you recommend?

Here’s my hot-take:

  • you should be running a playset of Hedron Crab as well as the Ruin Crab . You’ll also want to get Polluted Delta (if your budget affords them) so you have more fetches for them to benefit from. These crabs are the best way to get some early game stuff in the grave to surgical extract, so running 8 feels super strong. At a minimum, field at least 6.

  • It feels unintuitive, but Maddening Cacophony is stronger than Glimpse the Unthinkable because it gets around Leyline of Sanctity . If you’re running 6 of these cards total, have the playset be Maddening Cacophony instead of the other way around. I’ve yet to lose a game where 2 extra cards would’ve mattered.

  • Mind Funeral and Tome Scour are really bad cards, and I don’t think you should run these. Tome Scour is the equivalent of Burn decks running Shock - it doesn’t do enough to get the job done. Similarly, Mind Funeral is unlikely to reward you enough for the mana investment.

  • Despite how nice it reads on paper, Fraying Sanity is not a good card. Drawing a second one often means you’ve list yourself the game, so if you do insist on running it limit yourself to running it as a 1-of. Even then, it will often underperform in the deck - generally making you end the game at the same time had-of if been a Glimpse, or even worse, a turn slower.

I would suggest ditching the enchant and those 2 beforementioned bad sorceries for the Hedron Crab and then a smattering of Drown in the Loch , Fatal Push , Murderous Cut , and Inquisition of Kozilek . After that the next best thing to do would be to play tons of games at your local to build up a sideboard (read: Mill can’t win rounds without a strong sideboard), and save up for those Polluted Delta .

Hi! My advice is replace some of the creatures with cheap or free counter magic. I would defiantly cut Wonder , K'rrik, Son of Yawgmoth , Spark Double and Throatseeker the rest is up to you. Don't under estimate free creatures without evasion like Memnite and Phyrexian Walker .

Some disruption spells i would recommend are Commandeer , Chain of Vapor , Flusterstorm . Their expensive so some budget options are Fatal Push , Misdirection , Murderous Cut , Spell Pierce . Also i would recommend some library manipulation like Spy Network , Ponder , Mission Briefing , Lim-Dul's Vault (its good but expensive). Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top are also great top deck manipulation but probably no worth the money.

I recon Access Tunnel , Blinkmoth Nexus , Halimar Depths and Mystic Sanctuary should replace Path of Ancestry , Temple of the False God , Isolated Watchtower , High Market .

Finally i would recommend some better high CMC cards to reveal with Yuriko activation's. Some of the cards i recommended already double as good reveals but you could add: Sea Gate Restoration  Flip, Nexus of Fate , Time Warp . Their not budget friendly but there good. Take out two lands if you use Sea Gate Restoration and Agadeem's Awakening  Flip for obvious reasons.

I hope this helps :D
