Walker of Secret Ways Discussion

Itake on Master of Ninjutsu

3 months ago

I've done a lot of changes to the original deck. Mostly shoring up the mana base which has improved the deck greatly, although the required cards were ridiculously expensive...

Several of the new Modern Horizon cards in, most of them have been great. Ingenious Infiltrator is really superior to Ninja of the Deep Hours, especially now that mana isn't as much of a problem anymore. A lot of value from ninjutsuing one in using a Changeling Outcast then casting the Changeling Outcast again. Fallen Shinobi is also great. Really depends on what kind of deck you're facing but against some opp you can turn the game around for just 4 CMC.

I've tried Moonblade Shinobi without being impressed. I haven't tried Mist-Syndicate Naga though I've aquired a playset. It might be a good card in combination with Tetsuko.

Most recent changes have been:

Siren Stormtamer in, Ornithopter out

Some removal replaced with Mana Leak

1 Dire Fleet Daredevil out, 1 Dreadbore in.

I'm also thinking about taking Creeping Tar Pit out. 3 CMC is simply too expensive for a ninjutsu enabler, I very rarely have use for it. Thinking about getting one or more Snapcaster Mage . They're obviously very good, but they'd need to be VERY good in this deck to justify the cost..

I really need to think about a good sideboard, I'd welcome any suggestions! I'm thinking a couple of simple graveyard hate cards like, along with Skullsnatcher . Walker of Secret Ways might be useful too. I have a lot of issues with go-wide decks so something like Ghostly Prison (but the right colors) would be awesome.

Slither Blade over Triton Shorestalker . Sometimes that one extra toughness can mean life or death.

Possibly drop Walker of Secret Ways in favor of the new ninjas... Moonblade Shinobi might be a better fit

Obviously Modern Horizons threw a lot of changes into the list. In my current iteration I'm running 26 creatures + Mutavault :

My ninjitsu enablers are either free ( Memnite , Ornithopter , Phyrexian Walker ) or provide repeatable utility ( Cabal Therapist , Putrid Imp , Sage of Epityr , Sidisi's Faithful ). I don't prioritize evasion at all. I'm also running all 3 1-drop changelings ( Changeling Outcast , Mothdust Changeling ,{Universal Automaton})

I'm running every creature with a ninjitsu cost of 1 or 2 ( Azra Smokeshaper , Ingenious Infiltrator , Mistblade Shinobi , Ninja of the Deep Hours , Sakashima's Student , Skullsnatcher , Walker of Secret Ways ) as well as 3 more expensive ninjas that provide value ( Fallen Shinobi , Mist-Syndicate Naga , Throat Slitter )

The other creatures I'm running either provide incredible ETB value ( Gilded Drake , Spellstutter Sprite , {I would probably run Snapcaster Mage if I had one}) or facilitate team evasion ( Filth , Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive , Wonder .

And of course there's the Dragon Knife itself, Draco :D

PTsmitty on Ninja Upgrades/Binder for sale/trade

I recently took apart the planechase anthology decks so I have a few of the ninja cards people have been getting for their Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow decks. I have:
Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni
Sakashima's Student
2x Ninja of the Deep Hours
Walker of Secret Ways
Higure, the Still Wind
Mistblade Shinobi
Throat Slitter
Okiba-Gang Shinobi
Silent-Blade Oni

I have noticed while making this thread that the hyperlink is not reflecting the updated price for several of the cards so check on the TCGplayer website will be needed. The rest of my binder is for sale as well as long as I receive a fair offer based on the TCGplayer pricing. As always, I am willing to explore trades as well. My biggest wants right now are Surgical Extraction, Blackcleave Cliffs, and Leyline of the Void. Just let me know if we can work anything out.

@Temporal_Inept Thanks!

With Walker of Secret Ways and those two you should have plenty options to reuse ninjutsu, prowl and other ETBs in this deck.

I will have to see wether Reliquary Tower and Thought Vessel are enough to keep them all in hand. Otherwise I'll have to add Venser's Journal
