Awesome art, great ability, and shockingly well-costed for a Kamigawa card. Total Ninja.

Wait, then does that mean you could ninja him in between the first strike and regular combat damage steps to get double hits? I suspect it does. HMMMMM.

Have you ever tried dropping your ninjas on the enemy via an Ornithopter?

Let me tell you... it is surprisingly effective. I had a BlueBlack deck that I had put little unblockable guys into in order to better hit folks with ninjas, but I found it to be unwieldy and I often didn't have enough mana to cast what I wanted to cast after the ninjas had hit. Ornithopter gets around a lot of those problems by costing 0, and it has evasion!

If you haven't tried NinjasRidingOrnithopters.dec, you should really give it a try. I was pleasantly surprised, and now I will swear by it.

Actually channelblaze, you are correct, he can be ninjutsu'd in after combat damage. Look at the official rulings on Higure, the Still Wind for more information.

According to the rulings, yes you can. A neat little trick I've enjoyed doing is to give my preferred Ninja first strike, deal first strike combat damage, ninjutsu him out with a cheap ninja like Mistblade Shinobi or Skullsnatcher, then ninjutsu the Ninja I just took out back in, right on time for regular combat damage. In the case of Ninja of the Deep Hours, assuming he's holding a No-Dachi (and there's no Ronin Warclub in play), that trick will give you six damage and two cards for 1UU.

@Polychromatic - Looks like this guy's time to strike has come, then - Tormented Soul.

Another excellent Ninja, especially for the Ninjutsu cost. Card draw FTW.

By far my favourite non-legendary ninja

An outstanding card, both in terms of ability and flavor.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
