Silver-Fur Master

Creature — Rat Ninja

Some thoughts:

  • 22 lands feels a little low for a deck that is trying to juggle being both proactive and reactive. Personally i’d go to 23 - though i haven’t played the deck to know which number feels better.

  • Cunning Evasion feels really pointless to me, its going to mess with your own tempo heavily, for really limited gain. You’re better-off just kill-spelling a creature that’s blocking your stuff, or not worrying about it.

  • your creature count is too high, giving you too few means of interaction. I’d drop both Silver-Fur Master and Ornithopter (while also playing the full playset of Changeling Outcast, as it helps with your faerie count). That gives you 6 extra slots to control the boardstate.

  • Kaito, Dancing Shadow is probably a sideboard card at best. If a game goes long enough to get value from him, you’re in trouble. I’d leave him in the sideboard and just bring him in for super grindy matchups (or, ditch him entirely).

  • I agree the deck would perform a LOT better with Bitterblossom. Your best solution fir playing without it is to try and build the deck as aggressively as possible - you don’t want the game to go long because you’ll get out-valued.

Virlym I completely forgot that Silver-Fur Master would cancel Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive ability. I got tunnel vision on all the new ninjas. Thanks for looking out!

azja and Virlym what are your thoughts on Otawara, Soaring City and Takenuma, Abandoned Mire?

I'm thinking about since I have 3 Legendary creatures maybe it could provide a little utility. But then again how often would I have all three on the field.

Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow

Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive

Thanks so much Limo! I do like Maskwood Nexus a lot and could have kept it if I cut Arcane Adaptation, but the latter is more efficient and is a permanent type that gets targeted less. Nexus was also weaker without Whir of Invention to fetch it, and Solve the Equation is so much better than Whir in this deck. That being said, I am sure it will find another home as I have several tribal decks!

In a way we got our first true ninja lord in this deck with Silver-Fur Master, though Satoru Umezawa could maybe be a good "lord" in a less ninja oriented deck. They definitely seem to be keeping ninjas low-to-the-ground though.

@Virlym Although it's true that Silver-Fur Master and Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive are a nonbo, I think you can still get away with playing both in the same deck without much trouble. I'm glad you pointed that out though! It's an important thing to note if you draw both in the same opening hand, for example

@Elipson Silver-Fur Master is usually a trap in most Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow decks due to turning off Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive.

@Elipson I'm glad you brought this up, because it turns out I forgot to add the multicoloured ninjas to my Kamigawa review!

My current decklist has 9 creatures with ninjutsu other than Yuriko, and only 6 of them can be reduced by with Silver-Fur Master. And although the +1/+1 to all other ninjas is nice, the majority of my damage comes from Yuriko's triggers rather than combat damage. So I don't think it's impactful enough to add to my deck. But in decklists with a higher density of ninjas, it's definitely worth considering.
