Pilgrim's Eye

Artifact Creature — Thopter


When Pilgrim's Eye enters the battlefield, you may search your library for a basic land card, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.

What I'd cut:

Pilgrim's Eye: Not a very good rate, and it doesn't even ramp

Eldrazi Displacer: You don't have enough colorless mana producers to make this consistent, and there are better flicker effects you have acess to

Eight-and-a-Half-Tails: Clunky protection when it isn't really needed

Avacyn, Angel of Hope: Sadly just a win-more card in this case. If it sticks around sure you're probably going to win but you'll be enemy #1 and you're likely not going to survive that

Sword of Feast and Famine: Probably the most overpriced of the swords, and the most likely to draw hate. It looks good on paper but without a way to capitalize on it you're going to bite off more than you can chew.

The Wanderer: Not worth the 4 mana. There are just better cards that could be run.

Ephemeral Shields is kind of a weird addition. Its just not very good.

2-3 Plains: 38 is just a bit high for a deck that peaks at 3 cmc cards. Maybe add more ramp instead

Suggestions to add

The MDFC's are just great to have due to their flexibility: https://scryfall.com/search?as=gridℴ=name&q=type%3Aland+commander%3AW+%28game%3Apaper%29+is%3Amdfc

You don't have that many ways to sacrifice artifacts despite having several triggers off of. The standards are Trading Post, Arcbound Ravager and for this deck Oswald Fiddlebender is great because it tutors out another artifact for free. Kuldotha Forgemaster is a must because it can turn some of your dud artifacts into a portal or blighsteel, and at instant speed too.

Metalwork Colossus is just fun, plus with all your expendable artifacts it can be quite persistent

Wurmcoil Engine is just great, and doubling that death trigger is fantastic. Can't play its new little brother, because he's black, but the original is still a classic

Threefold Thunderhulk has two ETB's that can be copied, and he's a sacrifice outlet. I would also recommend Hangarback Walker since you can double the death trigger

If you put in enough Artifact sacrifices cards like Scrap Trawler, Myr Retriever, and Loran, Disciple of History to recur them back to your hand. Also consider Syr Ginger, the Meal Ender for payoffs to all that sacrificing.

Its a dead horse, but Swords to Plowshares and Path to Exile are never bad choices.

Library of Leng will keep you from discarding your extra cards and combos with Putrid Imp. Discard your highest CMC card to the top of your library and keep hitting people for max damage every round.

Spark Double can copy Yuriko so you get 2 card draws for each ninja.

Pilgrim's Eye gives you a land ETB, has flying so you can usually attack with it, then recast for 3 mana after you Ninjitsu

The Cauldron of Eternity, Curse of the Cabal and Needlebite Trap have a high CMC but you can also cast them cheap

Drayven9309 I run Nether Traitor in my Teysa, Orzhov Scion deck where the graveyard recursion is useful. With Yuriko I've become pretty strict on only using one drops unless they provide some other major advantage as with Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive and Dimir Infiltrator. Gingerbrute is good in that it is colorless and hence super easy to cast, is a one drop, and has haste, which potentially allows us to use it more. It's weakness is that it we have to pay one each time we want it to be evasive, although it does have really good evasion when we do. I have thought about it and may add it some day. As for Burnished Hart, research has shown that it is in a very high percentage of winning decks, especially those not in green. Pilgrim's Eye is a bad enabler in that we'll never want to spend three mana to recast it, and it doesn't come down quick enough to begin with. Also, we'll usually draw into our lands with Yuriko's ability, so fetching a land isn't all the great, we'd rather just actually ramp. Hart is great because we can spread the mana out over multiple turns, and oftentimes later in the game we'll have the spare mana to sac it. Gingerbrute is a great enabler though, and I will consider trying it out! Thanks so much for the comments and suggestions!

Nether Traitor and Gingerbrute are good evasive creatures that I like to use as 'Ninjutsu Fodder' that you might like to swap in somewhere, and I personally would switch Burnished Hart for Pilgrim's Eye as while Pilgrim isn't inherently ramp, it can make sure you hit your land drops and has evasion which makes it work pretty well with Ninjutsu.

Personally I would trade out Accorder's Shield for Torpor Orb. I would trade out Pilgrim's Eye and Tiana, Ship's Caretaker for Hushwing Gryff and Tocatli Honor Guard (I know, Tiana is really cool, but she is only hitting equipment in your deck, you're not running as much equipment as a full equipment Voltron deck, and you'd have to drop her for 5 mana then find a way to protect her for her ability to work and you're only running 3 cards that offer protection with Greaves, Cloak, and your instant Chance for Glory).

You don't need to trade them all out, just some suggestions of what I'd personally do if I was putting ETB protection in.

Reins of Power is amazing in multi-player. Why bother ninjitsu-ing with your own creature?

Octopus Umbra, maybe Soaring Seacliff

Draining Whelk and Pilgrim's Eye both have flying (to replace unblockable) and are great to cast and recast.
