I am the Demoninja. Allow me to demonstrate the myriad ways in which I can whoop your ass.

This is cool. REALLY cool. Mindleech Mass had a fantastic effect but was expensive and highly telegraphed. This fixes both of these. My problem with is many peoples': it isn't legendary. There are no legendary blue-black Ninjas to use as a general. Yes, the blue-black legend from this guy's precon is a far more practical general. Yes, Ninjutsu doesn't work from the command zone (it would be up for quickest house rule of all time if this WAS legendary though). But playing a Ninja deck isn't practical. It's fun. More fun, now.

I couldn't find room for this guy in my 60-card ninja deck, but he's a beast in EDH.

I've never actually cast an opponent's spell though. Every time I ninjutsu him, if they can't kill him before combat damage they concede immediately.

But then again, while casting other people's spells is my single favorite ability and it's a shame to miss a chance to do so, I suppose there are worse things to say than "This card makes me win more quickly than I want to."

My casual group consists entirely of people that qualify as Timmy/Johnnies. This guy will be hijacking a lot of huge expensive creatures that didn't get cheated out quickly enough, and huge expensive spells that didn't get ramped into quickly enough. Good times on the horizon.

First thought: Ninja Scroll...

And here I thought that Higure, the Still Wind and Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni were powerful. They still are, but they are also legendary, whereas Mr. Silent-Blade Oni isn't. Easily the most badass of all the Ninjas in Magic.

@Madrai We do need an Angel Pirate. So we can definitively prove that a Ninja is better than a Pirate once and for all.

What's the problem with it not being legendary? That only means you can Ninjutsu in a Sakashima's Student, then Ninjutsu in this guy. Silent Blade's Ninjutsu activates first, then the Student's. Two demon ninjas coming in through the window to steal your opponent's spells.
