bobpuluchi I have sort of the same deck. Try adding Grim Discovery , it combos with Archaeomancer and Memorial to Folly . Also I like Rise from the Grave , Rescue from the Underworld and Extract from Darkness for some triggers. +1 really liked the deck.

Try out Grave Betrayal , Extract from Darkness , or Graf Harvest . If you want to push more of a mill strategy, Fleet Swallower or Traumatize will get you some good targets. Paradox Haze seems a bit narrow with it effecting only 4 cards, one of which will make you burn through your deck very quickly.

Cuts: Sire of Stagnation , Dakmor Salvage , Connive / Concoct , Extract from Darkness , Stitch Together , and Victimize

Sire is slow and reliant on your opponents deliberately playing into it to get value. Dakmor is a land that enters tapped and is not needed to fill your grave since you can target yourself with Ashiok (and 22 lands is fine when you consider an adjusted average cmc). The other four are mediocre reanimation spells that are getting upgraded by the adds or are not efficient/versatile enough to run in addition to your signature spell.

Adds: Animate Dead , Necromancy

I'd recommend Glen Elendra Liege to support your faerie tribal theme and Extract from Darkness and Psychic Drain for the mill strategy. Mnemonic Betrayal could also serve you well.

Maybe you could do an +1/+1 counters version of aristocrats with Undying and cards like Epochrasite ... basically sacrifice them into a powerful engine before the end of everyone's turn.

Or... (here's one): Insurrection , Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Diluvian Primordial could be a "I play your cards" betrayal theme:

Mostly, I'm confused about what you're planning on getting with your Transmute cards. The best targets for a Yuriko deck at the 5 mana slot are Conspiracy and Xenograft, which are both in the Maybeboard. Same for Arcane Adaptation at the 3-drop slot.

I see stuff that makes creatures unblockable, but auras seem pretty bad with ninjas. Cover of Darkness is what I would use in a tribal deck, or you can just put in more unblockable cheap stuff like Slither Blade , Triton Shorestalker , etc. If you want to Surveil, then Nightveil Sprite is well-suited to both purposes. I also see Thalakos Seer in the Maybeboard, which is obscene with Yuriko, so I would maindeck that ASAP.

You're packing a lot of different card types, so Emrakul, the Promised End would be good in this deck. It's high CMC to burn the table with Yuriko, but you should be able to consistently cast it for 8 or less.

As for cuts, Rise from the Grave is pretty bad. You can Extract from Darkness , Necromantic Summons or Liliana, Death's Majesty for the same cost. I don't like Mirko Vosk, Etrata, Mind Grind, or Traitor's Clutch, either. The a graveyard subtheme makes sense, but mill cards don't.
