Kemokyle on Help me cut cards for ...

I think you're splitting your focus between ETB/Evasion creatures and setting up the top of your library for Yuriko's triggered ability a bit too much.

Cuts I recommend: Metallic Mimic - Is a ninja, buffs ninjas, but no evasion built in so will be harder to trigger Yuriko. You've got enough creature type fixing to gain more benefit off Yuriko triggers than an extra counter.

Kathari Remnant - I feel like most of your cuts are going to come from your 1-3 drops since you want a higher average CMC for Yuriko's triggers, so the cascade will be lackluster.

Amoeboid Changeling - Once one of your board-wide subtype changers hits the board (especially since you're tutoring for them), since this doesn't have evasion, I don't think it'll see much use.

Consign // Oblivion - The bounce is nice, 2 discards from someone is a little meh. But feel like you can just have creatures that bounce your board to gain more benefit like Faerie Impostor.

Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive - Besides herself, you only have 4 creatures in your list with power/toughness 1 that don't already have evasion built in, 3 of which are ninjutsu creatures that will likely be unblocked anyways.

Dragonlord Silumgar - Good CMC for Yuriko's trigger, and a nice ETB effect. But they get the creature back when you ninjutsu him away, and he's a little pricey to tack onto a ninjutsu cost to regain the same target.

I would also add cards like Faerie Impostor or other self bouncing cards.

idk if you are after the 5 toughness or permanent rather than creature trigger with Dream Stalker but Faerie Impostor flys, is cheaper and way less fugly in my opinion.

You should include Umezawa's Jitte; it's a way for blue to pump after blockers are declared, and it's on flavor.

Mindshrieker is creature that can also pump after blockers; and with cards like Field of Dreams (which I'm probably not going to run because, Oh my Thassa, that card is expensive) or Lantern of Insight, you can guarantee the best option (and it's not limited to one activation per turn snicker).

And I'm hoping to run Sakashima's Student to become the greatest creature on the board, and continuously do it with Trusted Advisor, Shrieking Drake, and Faerie Impostor.

Go, Blue Aggro!

Damnit, couldn't work out how to edit my last comment.

Right now you've only got 12 cards in your sideboard. You can have 15, so I re-jigged my recommended sideboard a bit:

Interesting idea. As a Faerie Tribal EDH player, may I suggest a few changes to really go all out on the Faerie theme?

I'd also recommend putting 3x Doom Blade in your sideboard, replacing the 3x Surgical Extraction with 3x Slaughter Pact, replacing the 3x Annul with 3x Stubborn Denial and the 3x Thoughtseize with 3x Notorious Throng.

Finding a way to get a couple of Faerie Impostor in there would be great too, as their requirement that you bounce a creature back to your hand is a great way to replay all those lovely ETB effects faeries like Vendillion Clique and Faerie Miscreant have. Maybe cut 1 Miscreant and 1 Scion?

As good as Mistbind Clique is, with so few faeries have you had problems casting and championing another faerie?

I haven't tested this but if you want to be mean I think Mistbind + Faerie Impostor + Quickling or any other creature that requires you to return a creature to your hand (Ex Aether Adept) but Quickling is the best since it has flash.
So for 6 mana you can lock out an opponent. During opponents upkeep have Have Mistbind champion the Impostor, then you can flash in Quickling to return the Mistbind returning the Impostor to the battlefield which then returns to Quickling to repeat next uptap phase.

You are also missing some pretty solid Faeries for a Fae Deck: Faerie Harbinger (tutor), Faerie Trickery (counter), Spellstutter Sprite (counter), Glen Elendra Archmage (more counters), Glen Elendra Liege (lord - great with Oona making 3/3s), Scion of Oona (Lord + Shroud), and just a fun one but Faerie Artisans basically it lets you benefit from all your opponents ETB effects sometimes you get a good creature to attack with but mostly it should be the ETB

ChaosJester Not really. Ornithopter is great because it has flying. That's the key,as damage will almost always get through. I stronly STRONGLY agree with you however, that I have too many creatures. I'm lost at what to do.

If I remove ninjas then...I just have a weak Faerie deck. If I remove Faeries, then which ones? I have Faerie Impostor to bounce back ninjas. And I have Faerie Miscreant for another cheap one drop for allowing Ninjutsu on turn 2 as well as the added ETB effect.

I'm thinking of removing faeries and allowing for other ways to get damage through with Ninjas and finding ways to bounce them back if they cant' get damage through. Maybe I add Aqueous Form for damage? However bouncing it back kills the enchantment.

Or perhaps I could try out Trusted Advisor, but I have to be able to swing with cheap creatures fast to allow for Ninjas to continually be on the field. I think Walker of Secret Ways serves me better then because I can unsummon at my own pace.

The issue I'm clearly having is what I should play my ninjutsu around. I'm just so stuck lol
