    Ninja deck (stealth board control)

    Just an idea I'm throwing out.
    Feel free to flame
    Loses hard to mages I bet.

    Ninja stealth deck

    Core cards:

    4x Nightshade
    4x Assassinate (good with nightshade)
    4x Erika
    4x Reconnaissance
    4x Aldon
    4x Cover of night (maybe, seems redundant but for non-stealth allies)
    4x retreat!

    What to do:
    Get out hard-to-kill stealth units. These units will help you maintain board control once they build up, and it's not easy to stop stealth units building up outside of burn cards.

    Nightshade is useful for ninja board control with recons or aldons. They tend to stay on board against non-mages, allowing for assassinations when you need an ally on field. They have potential to dish out some damage over a long game, left unchecked.

    A problem I faced a few times was constantly getting my stealth units/Erikas disabled by CB/CP. So I decided to add some retreats which kind of gets my stealth unit back and also contributes to board control.

    Once you have 2-3 nightshades on field with aldon or recon in your hand I daresay it will be difficult for the opponent to regain board control via allies.

    Irritants:
    Mages and their burn
    Dark flayer
    Evil ascendant

    I was thinking of adding some protectors to protect against mage burn. But it feels odd to protect stealth units. Feels like overkill.

    Haven't really tested it out yet.

    What do you think?

    That seems alright but I think a few nightshades should take care of the ambush parts, with aldon and recon.

    Here are two games I just played.

    Vervaiin(169) vs retard101(me)

    Vervaiin wasn't a very good player though... fed my draw engine quite a bit.

    And a closer matched game.

    MaliceMizer( 215 ) vs retard101( me )

    This was much funner game. Managed to wrestle board control towards the end to take the game.
