The problem with the current system is that there are certain opening hands that are literally impossible to win with. If we adopt color screw over mana screw, you could run previously unplayable cards like Prismatic Lens or Prismite to mitigate bad luck. Good players will be able to use Skycloud Egg or even Terrarion while bad players can just play their regular lands and tap out every turn as usual.

Like I said, I'm not sure how to implement this in the rules, but it seems like an interesting variant. If you ever played the video game Shandalar and had to play bad colorless cards because you didn't have enough playables, it feels very similar. It's better to play a mediocre artifact than nothing at all

You could add the following to make this deck a bit faster, and they're all quite cheap:

Sol Talisman Rakdos Signet Fire Diamond Charcoal Diamond Prismatic Lens Worn Powerstone

cards to remove: Blackblade Reforged, The Eldest Reborn, Smoldering Egg, Volcanic Dragon, Ring of Xathrid, Rune of Mortality

aslo i'd swap Victim of Night for Grim Bounty

i think you want to consider Swiftfoot Boots replacing Ring of Valkas

you should also really consider taking out the dragons for: Blood Cultist Dagger Caster Blood Cultist Prodigal Pyromancer Morbid Opportunist Deathbringer Thoctar Fireslinger Cunning Sparkmage

when those get deathtouch, you can ice any creature that poses a threat to zagras

I would optimize the buffs you give zagras to +3 power so you can kill people in 3 attacks Grafted Wargear Heirloom Blade

double strike is actually way better since the deathtouch will kill the creature on first strike damage: Fireshrieker Lizard Blades Embercleave Assault Strobe Berserkers' Onslaught Blood Mist

Markov Blademaster Temur Battle Rage

So having seen this in action I can say it's a neat deck, but I know why you did nothing for so long: you have overcommitted to Rem's schtick to the extreme. Let's analyze the numbers beyond card types at time of posting... Rem Burn: 18 Burn Enablers: 7 Creature Protection: 12 Life Gain: 2 Answers: 8 Ramp: 12 Recursion: 3 Refueling: 4 Tutors: 5 To be clear I didn't count Molten Psyche and Mind Stone for refueling since they don't net you cards and some cards count toward multiple categories like Rem for enablers and protection. To be fair it's also clear that this deck is still in the playtesting phase, but I feel like pointing out a flaw beyond the lack of draw and life gain we saw is important. Also, did you mean to include Prismatic Lens? I'd drop that for either a mana rock that produces colored mana on its own or to sure up one of the lacking categories.

Hey, interesting concept, combining Ninjas with sea monsters. Well done if this is your first attempt at deck building, you have good card sense.

Some cards here that are not as good as the others that could be upgraded, even on a budget: Prismatic Lens, Doom Blade, Nemesis of Reason, Ambition's Cost, Commander's Sphere, Rogue Class, Tromokratis, Blade of the Oni.

  • 1x more Island --> Tromokratis
  • 1x more Island --> Nemesis of Reason
  • 1x more Swamp --> Doom Blade

30 lands is low when you want to get to at least four mana to ninjutsu with Satoru. Consider cutting a couple of the high CMC sea monsters that are not as good as the others, Tromokratis and Nemesis of Reason, to add a few more lands? Could just add more of each basic land or there's many other options that are more expensive price: Watery Grave, Morphic Pool, Drowned Catacomb, Shipwreck Marsh, etc. Some budget options are: Ice Tunnel (another land Marsh Flats can get), Temple of Deceit, Esper Panorama.

Prismatic Lens and Commander's Sphere could be upgraded to mana rocks that can combo with Hullbreaker Horror to make infinite mana. Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice combo with Sol Ring by repeatedly bounce/cast them with Hullbreaker to make infinite mana. Sol pays for itself plus 1 extra colorless mana each time you tap it before it's bounced by Hullbreaker. Astral is better because once you make infinite colorless then you can pay that colorless to cast Astral to make infinite blue or black mana. When you have infinite colorless then Arcane Signet or Dimir Signet can also be used to make infinite blue/black mana.

If you can create a copy of Hullbreaker from Thousand-Faced Shadow then this combo can bounce all your opponent's nonland permanents and keep doing this on each of your main phases.

Ingenious Infiltrator is a good Ninja for repeatable draw. Baleful Strix is a nice creature to enable ninjustu. Prosperous Thief is a Ninja for repeatable ramp who also triggers from a Rogue and there's many unblockable Rogues here.

Good luck with your deck.

Lots of cheap mana rocks. Mind Stone, Prismatic Lens and Sol Ring your commander is super mana hungry and if you want to have an impact in the game you'll need to run him out as early as possible. The budget is a tiny bit slim for colorless but it can be done. Also, try to have a variety of things that have different mana values to maximize his counter ability.
