I mean, it's me so it HAS to be black, like really black. I went with a devotion heavy mana cost as a pseudo-drawback/restriction to compensate coming in with five loyalty for only four mana. Then for the abilities I went with effects I love in MTG. Black, big-mana, life drain, and sacrifice. I added enchantments to the ultimate due to the recent experiment in black enchantment removal: Mire in Misery. For the art I'm picturing something demonic like Ob Nixilis Reignited but with less fire and more dark magic effects like Liliana, the Necromancer. Anyway, fun exercise! I look forward to seeing what people create!

Necropotence exiles all my cards i discard, which would interfere with the reanimator theme, so i skipped that.

I ran Night's Whisper , Sign in Blood and Ancient Craving at first, but i wanted repeatable card draw and preferable not in sorcery speed. Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip and Greed are often enough, Ob Nixilis Reignited and/or Wretched Confluence and Vilis, Broker of Blood and Phyrexian Arena should be enough card draw in most cases.

Looks like a fun list. Have you considered Wretched Confluence over Ob Nixilis Reignited ? Confluence can get you 3 cards in a single turn vs the 3 it takes with Ob. If you don’t need the cards it can still kill a most creatures or get you back something out of your graveyard or any combination of the above.

Hi! A friend in my playgroup runs a Yuriko deck, and coming from an opponent of his, here are some interesting things you might be able to do to be more impactful!

Most of your damage is likely to come from flipping high CMC cards off the top of your deck, so you’ll want to be able to hit high if you can. You can get away with running generally higher CMC effects for things because of the extra damage they do, like running In Garruk's Wake instead of Damnation . Not only are cards like that more damaging over all, but they often come with better effects for the cost, and tend to be lighter on your wallet too. It also lets you run some big splashy cards that can be run as alternate win conditions too, like Enter the Infinite and Omniscience . Ways to manipulate the top of your library are great too, like the Brainstorm you’re already running. Doubling up on effects like that through cards like Soothsaying can make sure you can make the biggest splash you can when it’s time to flip some stuff off the top.

Because you’re incentivized to run high CMC cards to deal more damage with Yuriko, you’ll probably want to keep your creatures with a lower casting cost. You’re already running cards like Invisible Stalker which are awesome for ninjitsu tricks, but they also synergize well with mass-bounce effects, letting you rebuild quickly and letting you re-use ninjitsu abilities. Mass-bounce board wipe effects like Evacuation and Drawn from Dreams can be really strong helping you slow down your enemies while jamming ninjas down newly open lanes before your opponents can rebuild. Haste isn’t common in these colors, but Banehound and Nether Traitor might be worth considering thanks to how cheap they are, especially right after an evacuation cast. Leyline of Anticipation is a great pickup for this deck too, since casting a creature on the opponent before you’s End Step is a great way to get basically-sorta-haste, and it’s pretty cheap since it’s recent reprint!

The last thing I’d like to recommend is that you consider running more targeted removal! Your list looks like you definitely have a good grasp on what yuriko wants to do and how she wants to do it, so you might want to dedicate more space to trying to stop your opponent’s plans. You’ve got some nice tools available to you like Reality Shift , Go for the Throat , or even things like Ob Nixilis Reignited to grant more flexibility on a high CMC card. Instant speed is great where you can get it to be extra tricky while setting up attacks with ninjas, but don’t be afraid to include something weird with an overcosted CMC! There’s nothing more satisfying than flipping a card like Plague Wind with yuriko, and then immediately casting it! Good luck with your build, and I hope this helped!

I really like the idea of abusing sorin’s new passive! I have some suggestions

1: Ghostly Prison and Leyline of Sanctity don’t seem to be doing much. I think by turn 3 and four (when you would play ghostly prison or a topdecked leyline), you want to be playing your planeswalkers instead. I would go for early interaction instead, like Fatal Push and Path to Exile . I like the Kaya enchantment though.

2: I think you have better choices for Ob Nixilis Reignited and Chandra, the Firebrand . Especially nixilis. He’s kinda bad.

All of the following could be put in instead of nixilis or Chandra. He first few are kind of fringe choices that may or may not be good.

1: Angrath, Minotaur Pirate with lifelink would be insane, but he is a little spendy.

2: Chandra, Flamecaller ’s -X ability would also be crazy with lifelink, but she runs into the same problem than angrath does.

3: Chandra, Acolyte of Flame would just be there to buff up your red walkers

4: Gideon of the Trials could be a good defensive card, and he would he lifelink from sorin when he turns into a creature.

5: Jaya, Venerated Firemage would be an absolute bomb with sorin on the field.

6: Ob Nixilis, the Hate-Twisted would be a better choice if you want at least one nixilis, since he synergizes with sorin’s passive

I' going to try Desecrated Tomb again so I'll let you know how it goes, I do think you are right.

Cutting wise maybe Ob Nixilis Reignited is a nice card but it stands out to me as it does not synergy as well with the deck.

Yes it is a very small benefit! but I do find it useful though.
