Looks good. You might like these: Bident of Thassa , Coastal Piracy , Sunken Hope , Dire Undercurrents , Sleeper's Robe , Zur's Weirding (make everyone else lose their draws, meanwhile you get cards via your general's ability).

Also Ancient Stone Idol (or any big cmc creature, Idol just seems the best) + Haunted Crossroads + Skirge Familiar would be fun. Respond to Yuriko triggers by discarding the Idol with Skirge, then put Idol on top with Crossroads. You can hold priority between resolutions of the seperate triggers to repeat this, so if 4 or more ninjas connect you win. Hard to pull off, but at least the combo pieces are decent even outside the combo.

Ancient Stone Idol

have any idea as to what to cut? I'm trying to cut some of the six & seven drops because the list has a pretty heavy top end. Any advice given would be very helpful. thank you!

Thanks for the feedback! I really like the Karn, the Great Creator + Mycosynth Lattice combo idea especially since my playgroup doesn't have any restrictions on wish effects. Normally Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger would be a better choice than Ancient Stone Idol , but in my playgroup it's not uncommon to see someone have five 6/6's out by turn four and Ancient Stone Idol 's ability to decrease its casting cost by 1 for each attacking creature allows me to feasibly get him out by turn three.

You could try Cackling Counterpart or Quasiduplicate as signature spells, and fill your deck with creatures that would be busted in multiples, like Ancient Stone Idol , Wurmcoil Engine , Combat Celebrant , Bane of Bala Ged , Utvara Hellkite , and Hellrider , to name a few.

Ancient Stone Idol could work even if you're not the one being attacked, Hornet Queen gives people a reason to not attack you, Assault Suit maybe? Though having creatures with a drawback to attacking would be good with it. Abyssal Persecutor and Rakdos the Defiler would be fun with the suit. Couldn't find any other drawback critters. And finally, No Mercy for the ones that slip through. Anyway, hope that helps, I'll drop a + for ya too.
