Amorphous Axe Discussion

Never seen a shaman deck before! Very cool. You might like these: Runed Stalactite, Amorphous Axe, Birthing Boughs, Irregular Cohort, Second Harvest, Evolutionary Leap, Heirloom Blade, Illusionist's Bracers, Thornbite Staff, Bloodline Shaman, Congregation at Dawn, Ghired, Conclave Exile, Wort, the Raidmother, Vitu-Ghazi Guildmage, Circle of Elders, Dwarven Thaumaturgist (he can pop your eggs + he looks funny)

This deck performs very well with some decently large deficiencies. I think you need to cut some weaker cards (sorceries and creatures mostly) and add in more Ninjas and ninja synergies.
Artifacts, Enchantments, Instants, Planeswalkers, and Lands: I would definitely cut Briber's Purse, Fatal Push, and Vraska, Scheming Gorgon while also giving thought to the merits of including Skygames, Bontu's Monument, Forge of Heroes, Unclaimed Territory, and of, or at least the Amonkhet, cycling lands.
The cards I have recommended are either slow, have low to zero synergy with the rest of the deck, or are typically weak in commander.
Cards to Add Creatures: Ninjas, ninjas, and more ninjas (plus some cheaper unblockables for good measure). There are 19 Ninjas in mtg history (excluding changelings). You have 11 in this deck. I think you ought to have more. The cheapest are Mistblade Shinobi, Okiba-Gang Shinobi, Skullsnatcher, Throat Slitter, and Walker of Secret Ways. Higure, the Still Wind and Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni are both reasonable splurges in terms of powerful Ninjas to acquire. Now for other creatures to enable Ninjitsu. First off, I could have included Changeling Outcast in the last section since it is also a Ninja and you should absolutely be running it in here. Other small unblockables for you to Ninjitsu into are Gudul Lurker, Slither Blade, Tormented Soul, Faerie Seer, Mothdust Changeling, Gingerbrute, Dimir Infiltrator, Baleful Strix, Invisible Stalker, Augury Owl, Sage Owl, Spire Owl, and Cloud of Faeries. All of these cards are less than 3 cmc, and are either entirely unblockable or have good etb/ltb or dealing combat damage synergy (and are mostly pretty cheap too). I'd recommend adding at least 3 or 4 of them in addition to the above ninjas.
Other cards: This section is mostly for general things that you could do to make this deck more consistent and enjoyable to pilot, but there are a couple specific synergies I think you're missing out on. They're both pretty intertwined so I'll just address them together. I think you could be putting in a few more cards that are good to reveal off of Yuriko's trigger and ways to manipulate the top of your library so you get those card when they are most impactful. I am referring to cards like Treasure Cruise, Sibsig Muckdraggers, Temporal Trespass, Dig Through Time, Draco, Consign / Oblivion, Murderous Cut, Far / Away, Curtains' Call, Into the Story, Submerge, Commandeer, Commit / Memory, Discovery / Dispersal, Rags / Riches, In Garruk's Wake, and any other high cost card that has an alternate mana cost, mana reducing ability, split card, or is a high impact card. Then you could also throw in a few ways to manipulate the top of your library like Brainstorm, Ponder, Serum Visions, Tamiyo's Epiphany, and Crystal Ball. The only other synegystic thing you could put in here is making your other creatures Ninjas as well with Conspiracy, Xenograft, Arcane Adaptation, and Amorphous Axe.
Otherwise, you could probably add in some more ramp (Sol Ring, Mind Stone, Star Compass, etc.), card draw (see cantrips above and Last Thoughts), board wipes (could probably replace Bontu's Last Reckoning with some of the ones from the last section or just add those ones or some other good boardwipes) and spot removal or counterspells (I don't see a lot of good ways to deal w/ non-creature permanents in here).

Nice list! Shields of Velis Vel seems like it'd be fun in response to a boardwipe. You might like these too: Shivan Harvest , Dark-Dweller Oracle , Runed Stalactite , Amorphous Axe , Second Harvest , Parallel Evolution , Magewright's Stone , Thousand-Year Elixir , Hua Tuo, Honored Physician , Ghired, Conclave Exile , Rootborn Defenses , Song of the Worldsoul , Wake the Reflections , Bloodspore Thrinax

Hey Wolfpig! Thanks for the comment, glad you liked reading about Patron.
I considered Amorphous Axe , but the equip cost is kind of steep and basically negates the mana saved from Offering. I experimented with Amoeboid Changeling since the activation is free, but I found it too slow without haste. I played around with Arcane Adaptation for a bit and found it was a little better, but felt like a dead card at times since I have so few creatures. Eventually settling on Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir ; he is a bit higher on the curve, but he fits into my Azami, Lady of Scrolls package while enabling flash without Moonfolk Offering AND providing protection from interactions during my turn.

+1 for a well made deck and solid primer. Thanks for taking the time to write it. I was up in all sorts of what the heck when I saw this Commander here, for the first time. Pretty cool card if you ask me! Maybe considering Amorphous Axe to make anything a moonfolk might help?

I think Runed Stalactite would be fun here. Toss it on Worldspine so he becomes an egg, then sac him and potentially get him right back. With an altar and Runed Stalactite out you've got yourself infinite wurms and life! Amorphous Axe , Shields of Velis Vel , and Blades of Velis Vel work similarly to the stalactite though they are more restrictive.
