I went rogues as my backup tribe for Yuriko as well. There are a bunch of amazing rogues that work really well with her you might consider:

Marang River Prowler is handy since if you control your commander, you can cast him from your graveyard. Additionally he can't be blocked, which lets you ninjutsu out other creatures.

Whirler Rogue comes out with two thopters you can tap to make her unable to be blocked, then pop her back into your hand to get out Yuriko. Once you cast her a second time, you get two more thopters, and now you can prevent two creatures from being blocked.

Quickling , Keymaster Rogue , and Faerie Impostor all work REALLY well with ninjas. They all have built in evasion, and they all require you to put a creature back in hand when they ETB. This means that you can put a ninja already in play back into your hand so you can ninjutsu them back at a later point.

Flitterstep Eidolon is good value in this type of deck. Bestow it onto Yuriko to make her permanently unable to be blocked, then if she dies or is exiled, you get an unblockable creature, attack with it, ninjutsu your commander back into play, then bestow it onto her again.

Also you can't go wrong with some sac outlets for Yuriko. You can let her die over and over and keep getting her back into play easily as long as you have an evasive creature. If you can afford it, Phyrexian Tower is a great way to use her to get more mana. High Market is another nice one to have around.

Lastly, Exquisite Blood is a stupidly powerful enchantment for Yuriko since it will turn every time a ninja connects for damage into massive lifegain for you. Every opponent will lose life equal to your top deck CMC, so it only gets stronger as an enchantment in this deck the more opponents you have.

If it helps, you can also check out my decklist for her at Yuriko EDH for other ideas. Hope this helps :)

Vampiric Tutor is the #1 card you could put in to improve the deck. Diabolic Vision is an excellent cantrip. Temporal Trespass is the best extra turn spell you could ask for, since the CMC is an upside. Same goes for Curtains' Call and Avatar of Woe . Insidious Dreams and Ancestral Knowledge are extra Doomsdays. Unnatural Selection is an extra creature-type changer. Emrakul, the Promised End is a good eldrazi of choice, since you'll actually be able to cast it if you tutor it to the top of your library. Trench Gorger is a good late game card, since it does triple duty acting as a huge beater, high-CMC target, and deck-thinner. For little guys, Tormented Soul , Triton Shorestalker , Faerie Impostor , Prickly Boggart , Vampire Cutthroat , Looter il-Kor , Nether Traitor , Flitterstep Eidolon , Thalakos Seer , Baleful Strix , Augury Owl , Spire Owl , and Sage Owl are better than some of your choices,

I made Tiger Shadow Jutsu with the same boss. My first change was to put in something so i didn't have to discard cards like Library of Leng (I see you have two other cards that do the same thing already).

Once I had played a few times I saw my self getting blocked after the Ninja's were on the board. Aqueous Form, Flitterstep Eidolon, Writ of Passage etc really help.

The creatures that you pop ninjas from can be more deadly than the ninjas. Hostage Taker, Identity Thief etc. They can remove blockers instead of just not getting blocked. I love playing cards from Hostage Taker then putting him back in my hand to play again.

If your opponents are board wiping you can use Reckless Imp with Dash.

Some way to make Tuvasa (or anything else) unblockable would be good. A Flitterstep Eidolon, Whitewater Naiads, or Thassa, God of the Sea. And if you plan on bouncing your creatures, maybe something like Cathars' Crusade could be useful? There's also ways to turn your enchantments into creatures, like Starfield of Nyx. I also see 0 cards with Constellation or Bestow. Eidolon of Blossoms could be nice to add to your cast-enchantment-and-draw-card cards. Herald of the Pantheon is also pretty cooooooooool. As is Kestia, the Cultivator. And not sure if you're into combos, but Enchanted Evening and Ajani's Chosen go infinite and are pretty good on their own.

Writ of Passage, Flitterstep Eidolon and Aqueous Form. The writ can be cast forecast every turn if you don't want to cast it. The eidolon can be used for ninjitsu or cast as an enchantment for an existing ninja. The scry from aqueous form is a nice bonus.

Sakashima the Impostor is $20. You may WANT it but you don't NEED it. Skeletal Changeling is a ninja and chump blocker with regenerate. I like that one.

There are several cheap enchantments to make a ninja unblockable after you get the first ninjitsu onto the board. Aqueous Form, Writ of Passage and Aether Tunnel are the cheapest. Flitterstep Eidolon can attack, ninjitsu then recast as bestow. Lots of mana but really flexible.

If you are married to the faerie theme try Knacksaw Clique or Puppeteer Clique for ETB, fly in, ninjitsu, recast for ETB all over. Bitterblossom provides chump blockers and fliers to ninjitsu off of. (Bitterblossom is expensive as heck though).

The biggest change i had to make to my deck after the first draft was Reliquary Tower, Thought Vessel, Library of Leng and anything to let me hold onto cards instead of discarding down to 7.

This is a good start!

Flitterstep Eidolon is a good start, but Aqueous Form gives a bit more value with the Scry ability - or run both? I think you could also consider Skybind for the added blinking value - I combo this with Heliod in Block Constructed and it makes for very efficient removal.

Curator's Ward and Corrupted Conscience don't do much for you here, imo - if you want to do Infect, I would suggest just running Triumph of the Hordes and win the turn you cast it if you're wanting to win this way. Indestructibility also doesn't do much - your 6 Gods are already indestructible and it's 4 mana I think you could be putting elsewhere. I think it really depends on the game you're playing and the environment you're in. What do you think? :)
