If your going to do blue. You should Try some draw power. Those rats will get wiped out by spot removal faster than you can draw into them. I like Opt you can also use, Chart a Course, Curious Obsession,which gives them a bit more on the defense plus draw. Daring Saboteur will already be unblockable due to the Tetsuko. Costly Plunder is good as a sac block draw. Infernal Scarring can help you beef up the rats and draw when they get killed off.Recover would be good for when they spot off your tetsuko....there's plenty of ways to do this but try these out and let me know how it goes!

OK, I know you are still refining, and this isn't a Wizard, but it seems mechanically like something you might be looking for: Daring Saboteur

I just want to let you know that I used your deck tonight, at a standard showdown. I went 3-0 and it was priceless to see the faces of my opponent going... WTH! Mono-blue aggro...

For dominaria, i was planning on changing Honed Khopesh for Arcane Flight. You save to cast/ equip. Plus you can give flying to your Daring Saboteur and possibly avoid paying 2 and/ or enchant your Slippery Scoundrel useful before having the city blessing. I'll definitely have to test it, to see if that really matter in example losing and enchantment vs an equipment staying on the board when your creature die.

Curator's Ward to protect Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive, Bontu's Monument to make Rat Colony cheaper to summon, Throne of the God-Pharaoh for added damage after your unblockable attacks.

Curious Obsession would just make your unblockables blockable, but a few Daring Saboteur might work some of the time. If you are planning for a long game, I like Deadeye Brawler for a number of reasons. A handy side-board card might be Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons as your snake tokens would also be unblockable. Having 2 legendry creatures in the deck might justify Blackblade Reforged etc.

My current version of this deck is Drat Rats

I have a similar deck that I'm testing and it runs Daring Saboteur because you opponent could not have creatures out by the time he's attacking and Slippery Scoundrel needs ascend to be of any use at all, and ascend is a lot harder to hit in an aggro deck like this with fewer lands than normal. Daring Saboteur could be better if you added enchantments to you deck such as Cartouche of Knowledge, One With the Wind, or whatever the Kaladesh one is called that gives your dude +2/+1 and menace. These enchantments make Daring Saboteur virtually unblockable, which means you can fix the cards in your hand a lot better.

Does anyone have any thoughts towards Daring Saboteur vs Slippery Scoundrel? I dont like playing scoundrel turn 3 and waiting for ascend and I also don't like having for saboteur to be unblockable

Possibly a couple copies of Daring Saboteur? Maybe some Slippery Scoundrels.

I really like the look of this deck! I've been playing a version of $10 U/W SRAM ENCHANTRESS that I've uploaded as Sram the Dwarf Enchantress and I think some mix of that plus this would work really well. Having Dowsing Dagger to pay Daring Saboteur's unblockable cost is awesome but I think I'm playing too many Desert's Hold and need to make room for some counter spells.
