Shadowmage Infiltrator Discussion

Some suggestions from me:
- Thalakos Seer is strong with ninjutsu
- Will-o'-the-Wisp has evasion but is also a good blocker
- Whispersilk Cloak gives evasion and shroud
- Shadowmage Infiltrator is also a good card
- As additional carddraw you could run Coastal Piracy,Bident of Thassa and/or Reconnaissance Mission
- Command Tower is a must play
- Sword of Vengeance and every equipment that gives first strike are good with ninjutsu because you can use ninjutsu after first strike damage.

I have a few notes here.
Crumbling Necropolis is a tap land, and, for a rather swift game plan of aggro, this is a large detriment. I'd recommend more basics in their place.
The curve is quite low, thence twenty-four lands is a little much. I'd cut 2-4 lands and try some removal. Unsummon, Terminate, Brazen Borrower, or Fatal Push could be better. Lightning Bolt would probably be best.
Unearth is a little odd here. Perhaps a mere two copies? It doesn't work well with this proactive gameplan.
Shadowmage Infiltrator is a late-game engine that allows this to sustain card draw, but is three mana and doesn't do much early. Try two copies.
Knight of the Ebon Legion could be fine. Pump it after blocks and the Calvalcade's attack trigger, hit for far more.
I'd put in Scorch Spitter. It seems to do well.
Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive is legendary and doesn't stack due to this. I'd go down to three.
Thar it be. Good luck!

Hi, welcome to edh!
First off, I want to say I think the deck looks great so far! I've been playing Yuriko for about 8-9 months now, and here are some things I'd suggest:
Mu Yanling I personally don't like planeswalkers in Yuriko decks. Since you won't have very good blockers, it likely won't survive until your next turn. I'd play something like Thassa, God of the Sea instead
Decree of Pain the cycling mode hurts your creatures much more than the rest of the table since you play lots of 1/1 's and 2/2 's. Commit / Memory has a cmc of 10, and can be a temporary removal spell or counterspell
Kindred Dominance unless you have an effect like Conspiracy out on the board, this hurts you a lot too. I'd play something like Evacuation instead. It's instant speed, and you can re-play your creatures a lot faster than your opponents can.
12-16. Inkfathom Infiltrator, Invisible Stalker, Quickling, Shadowmage Infiltrator, and Spark Double aren't good enough to justify their mana cost in my opinion. Some replacements I would suggest are Changeling Outcast, Dimir Infiltrator, Gudul Lurker, Mist-Cloaked Herald, Tormented Soul, and Baleful Strix
I hope this was helpful! If you want to check out my Yuriko deck, the link is https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/26-07-19-yuriko-edh/

Azeworai Thank you! All these sound great in this deck. Shadowmage Infiltrator would be perfect for some draw, which I can use, and also themes perfectly. Spinal Embrace would be crazy! Especially since my playgroup likes to play big creatures. lol And Life's Finale would give me so much more options. Something like Animate Dead would really make that card shine. Great suggestions! Thanks

Love the flavor here. Usurp the opponents, seize the crown.
Life's Finale could be interesting to manipulate an opponent's graveyards and sculpt a strategy. Spinal Embrace is a fun one for me, but it's personal preference. Shadowmage Infiltrator could be potent, but 'tis personal preference.
May you connive well, enshrouded by gloom and unseen by all.
