Nice. Teferi's Veil, Rootwater Thief, Abjure and Midnight Clock are pretty great budget additions.

I think having these counterspells will certainly help you do what it is you are trying to do and protect that plan.

I don't think Lazav, Thopter Spy Network, or Telepathy are doing much for you in this list.

Might I suggest some odds and ends if you haven't tried them already - Abjure (if youre going to bounce yuriko anyway, might as well sac her for value), Unnatural Selection , Discovery / Dispersal , Trickery Charm , Whispersilk Cloak , Thalakos Seer , Wingcrafter (does serious work in this deck)

How consistent have you found Counterbalance to be? Also might I recommend Abjure as a potential counterspell considering your faeries are blue?

How about adding Spellseeker and Tribute Mage ?

Tribute Mage can tutor for Scroll Rack or an artifact Stax piece if needed.

Spellseeker can tutor for a tutor like Vampiric Tutor , or a counter spell like Abjure

Thanks for the detailed comment Hissp! It is very appreciated.

Truthfully, I have found Cabal Therapist to be minimally useful. Yes, it can reset yuriko, but really, what can't? I like the ideal of Sidisi's Faithful . I'll try it out soon as a more immediately impactful replacement.

I've been debating between Dispel and Abjure for this list. Just this last month I've been testing Abjure and it has been performing very well. Cheap, catch-all counters allow the deck to commit to the board more aggressively with less fear, and Abjure has been stellar at filling that role. I think I will officially make the switch.

Sakashima's Student , Mutavault , and Shizo, Death's Storehouse are all in my deck irl but I've somehow forgotten them on this list! You are absolutely right about Sakashima's Student , its a phenomenally versatile ninja. I'll update the list to reflect this.

Full disclosure, I'm not totally sold on Sakashima the Impostor . It tends to be a win more, and as you said, as its usually at its best when you are already in a good board position. I definitely wouldn't run both Sakashima and Spark Double . Its on the chopping block.

I've seen your list, and Entomb + Wonder / Filth looks spicy! I'm guessing the amount of mass-evasion a player will want will depend heavily on their meta composition. If playgroups tend to get clogged up on the ground, then these seems like great inclusions! I am lucky enough that I don't have a hard time connecting with ninjas (always at least one deck that commits minimally to the board), but I think it is great tech to have! That being said, the inclusion of more cheap changelings in Modern Horizons definitely raises my evaluation of cover of darkness.

Mission Briefing seems good. I keep telling myself that Snapcaster Mage is better in this list because he can be replayed with ninjutsu, but I have tended to undervalue scry (in this case surveil) in the past. I'll give this some testing. More brainstorming is always a good thing, and I suppose there is no reason why I couldn't run both.

And finally, Memnite and Phyrexian Walker for the win! (Seriously, every Yuriko player should have these 0-mana creatures in their arsenal).
