This looks pretty good. Eligeth is a pretty insane card. Have you considered Hedron Alignment? The wincon on it is absolutely useless here, but playing to draw a card is really powerful. Also, there's a functional reprint of Foresee in Tamiyo's Epiphany.

This deck performs very well with some decently large deficiencies. I think you need to cut some weaker cards (sorceries and creatures mostly) and add in more Ninjas and ninja synergies.

Cards to Cut: Creatures: Definite cuts are Jeskai Infiltrator, but I'd also heavily consider trimming Dark Impostor, Deathcult Rogue, Etrata, the Silencer, and Nezumi Cutthroat.

Sorceries: Definitely cut Hour of Eternity, Kefnet's Last Word, Paranoid Delusions and consider trimming Ghostform, Slip Through Space, or Stealth Mission.

Artifacts, Enchantments, Instants, Planeswalkers, and Lands: I would definitely cut Briber's Purse, Fatal Push, and Vraska, Scheming Gorgon while also giving thought to the merits of including Skygames, Bontu's Monument, Forge of Heroes, Unclaimed Territory, and of, or at least the Amonkhet, cycling lands.

The cards I have recommended are either slow, have low to zero synergy with the rest of the deck, or are typically weak in commander.

Cards to Add Creatures: Ninjas, ninjas, and more ninjas (plus some cheaper unblockables for good measure). There are 19 Ninjas in mtg history (excluding changelings). You have 11 in this deck. I think you ought to have more. The cheapest are Mistblade Shinobi, Okiba-Gang Shinobi, Skullsnatcher, Throat Slitter, and Walker of Secret Ways. Higure, the Still Wind and Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni are both reasonable splurges in terms of powerful Ninjas to acquire. Now for other creatures to enable Ninjitsu. First off, I could have included Changeling Outcast in the last section since it is also a Ninja and you should absolutely be running it in here. Other small unblockables for you to Ninjitsu into are Gudul Lurker, Slither Blade, Tormented Soul, Faerie Seer, Mothdust Changeling, Gingerbrute, Dimir Infiltrator, Baleful Strix, Invisible Stalker, Augury Owl, Sage Owl, Spire Owl, and Cloud of Faeries. All of these cards are less than 3 cmc, and are either entirely unblockable or have good etb/ltb or dealing combat damage synergy (and are mostly pretty cheap too). I'd recommend adding at least 3 or 4 of them in addition to the above ninjas.

Other cards: This section is mostly for general things that you could do to make this deck more consistent and enjoyable to pilot, but there are a couple specific synergies I think you're missing out on. They're both pretty intertwined so I'll just address them together. I think you could be putting in a few more cards that are good to reveal off of Yuriko's trigger and ways to manipulate the top of your library so you get those card when they are most impactful. I am referring to cards like Treasure Cruise, Sibsig Muckdraggers, Temporal Trespass, Dig Through Time, Draco, Consign / Oblivion, Murderous Cut, Far / Away, Curtains' Call, Into the Story, Submerge, Commandeer, Commit / Memory, Discovery / Dispersal, Rags / Riches, In Garruk's Wake, and any other high cost card that has an alternate mana cost, mana reducing ability, split card, or is a high impact card. Then you could also throw in a few ways to manipulate the top of your library like Brainstorm, Ponder, Serum Visions, Tamiyo's Epiphany, and Crystal Ball. The only other synegystic thing you could put in here is making your other creatures Ninjas as well with Conspiracy, Xenograft, Arcane Adaptation, and Amorphous Axe.

Otherwise, you could probably add in some more ramp (Sol Ring, Mind Stone, Star Compass, etc.), card draw (see cantrips above and Last Thoughts), board wipes (could probably replace Bontu's Last Reckoning with some of the ones from the last section or just add those ones or some other good boardwipes) and spot removal or counterspells (I don't see a lot of good ways to deal w/ non-creature permanents in here).

Similar to Winged Words, Gust of Wind, Of One Mind:

Dragon's Insight

Sorcery

As long as you control a Dragon, Dragon's Insight costs less, and gains Buyback .

Draw 2 cards.


I'd like to see a limited draw spell, like Divination or Tamiyo's Epiphany, although the latter actually sees some play in standard, I guess?

Vannifar, Factional Leader

Legendary Creature - Elf Ooze Wizard

Graft X

When Vannifar, Factional Leader enters the battlefield, choose one:

  • Create half X green 1/1 Frog Lizard creature tokens.

  • Draw Scry X, then Draw half X.

  • Until your next turn, you don't lose unspent mana as steps and phases end, and you may cast spells as though they had flash.

0/0


First is a classic green ability of token manufacture (Sylvan Offering, Slime Molding, Avenger of Zendikar, Saproling Migration, One Dozen Eyes.

Second is a classic blue ability (Opt, Foresee, Tamiyo's Epiphany, etc.)

Third is similar to the abilities of Kruphix, God of Horizons, Alchemist's Refuge, Prophet of Kruphix,


Continue the cycle.

GS doesn't change the source of the damage, just the recipient. So TC is the only source of damage. GS redirects 2 damage from you to TC and then (maybe? I think this might fall under replacement effects not working more than once for the same damage instance, but for this it won't matter anyway) GS redirects the same 2 damage from TC to TC. After all the redirecting is decided, the 2 damage is applied from TC to itself, and its ability triggers continuing the loop.

TangoWithTojo on Derevi Bant EDH

I run a similar style with my Derevi deck, though I use primarily enchantments instead of creatures for one simple reason - Creatures are usually easier to remove. But here's some cards that I'd recommend using if you're going for as much resource denial as possible:

Lands: The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale , Serra's Sanctum , Rishadan Port , Hall of Heliod's Generosity , Yavimaya Hollow , Fabled Passage

Sorceries/Instants: Drain Power , Bant Charm , Tamiyo's Epiphany , Sunder , Armageddon , Flood of Tears , Terminus

Planeswalkers: Teferi, Time Raveler , Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Estrid, the Masked , Narset, Parter of Veils , Dovin Baan , Dovin, Hand of Control

Creatures: Seedborn Muse , Angus Mackenzie , Lavinia, Azorius Renegade , Sigarda, Host of Herons , Hokori, Dust Drinker , Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker , False Prophet , Baird, Steward of Argive , Gwafa Hazid, Profiteer , Melira, Sylvok Outcast I'd only recommend using Melira if you plan on having Phyrexian Unlife in the deck.

Artifacts: Crawlspace , Norn's Annex , Torpor Orb , Candelabra of Tawnos , Forcefield , Meekstone , Ward of Bones , Gilded Lotus , Thran Dynamo , Everflowing Chalice

Enchantments: Pendrell Mists , Frozen AEther , Blind Obedience , Privileged Position , Greater Auramancy , Back to Basics , Land Equilibrium , Propaganda , War Tax , Collective Restraint , Teferi's Moat , Moat , Humility , Overwhelming Splendor , Leyline of Anticipation , Solemnity , Invoke Prejudice , Mana Reflection , Mechanized Production , Overburden , Rising Waters , Rule of Law , Wilderness Reclamation

Sorin_Markov_1947 on Not That Card ... Discard!

1 year ago

Kaya's Wrath , Tamiyo's Epiphany , and Harvest Fear can all do that, but not if your opponent starts to combo off or gets massive board presence (with the exception of Kaya's Wrath ). If you pick-and-choose, you can take away the key cards your opponent needs to win. You need some of those, even if the card you replace is not Mind Rot .

Not a huge fan of Jace's Erasure . If they've let me gain infinate mana I can just respond to whatever they draw and make them deck themselves. I cannot think of anything that would stop me that's a common. I do like Crashing Drawbridge as a haste enabler; though outside of that function I'm not sure it's all that great I'd need to test it. Sprout Swarm is an alternative win condition just incase; it's not a primary win condition so I'm not sure If id want to dedicate more slots to it. Qurion ranger was in my initial draft of this deck but I kinda decided against it because I wanted more dig cards. Deep Analysis was also a consideration but Foresee and Tamiyo's Epiphany allow us to look deeper into the deck and smooth out the drawa; I wanted consistency over just raw cards. I was actually going to add mystic sancuary after seeing it in a naru mecha deck just hadn't gotten around to it; very cool card but wondering if 10 islands will be enough to get its effect. Displace is a cool back up and adds redundancy I'll probably try it. I'm still trying to get people at my lgs back into commander so I think Night Soil is a pretty sweet tech card but I'm not sure how my meta will shape up. Like Mystic Remora is a great card but sometimes I swap it out because people at my lgs like their creature based tribal decks. Also, this isn't a heavy flicker deck. We only really flicker to combo not for value; while I like those cards I dont think they fit in this shell. I did consider the other cards you mentioned as well but space is tight and I like being more proactive than disruptive. Anyways, thanks for the suggestions:)
