This deck feels sort of unfocused. Specifically, Mindcrank and you choice in card draw spells (unless you're tryna mill someone out, in which case take a look at Paranoid Delusions) seem counter-intuitive. I would recommend thinking about what you want to do every turn.
Turn 1: drop an unblockable creature.
Turn 2: either pump it up or, if possible, play Invisible Stalker.
Turn 3: pump it up more and keep drawing cards off of Curiosity and the like.

Looks fun! You might want to change the legality to legacy instead of pioneer though - just so people will be better equipped to help you. It'd be hard to play a Ninja deck in Pioneer, seeing how there isn't a single Ninja legal in the format hah.
Might be worth running Invisible Stalker or Changeling Outcast to get in guaranteed unblockable attacks. Baleful Strix would also be amazing here since the flying + deathtouch means you'll almost always get it in unblocked, and if you do and use Ninjutsu, then you're getting extra card advantage since you draw a card every time you recast it.

Anvil of Bogardan doesnt work well with Megrim and Liliana's Caress they only discard one card. and because you skip the discard phase, you dont exactly purge your hand down to 7,same with opponents. if oyu keep those two discard type cards, i would use Invisible Stalker regardless of her liking creatures, and Whispering Madness and cipher that card on to the stalker.every time the stalker hits, it causes hand resets and discards. Id also use Waste Not with madness. drop the white cards for stalker, madness and waste not, and you have a fairly mean simple deck. and yes Dark Ritual for mana ramp. Norn's Annex while technically white, doesnt need white mana too cast, just 4 life, and slows attacking down big time, especially if they dont have white mana to pay the cost. Vengeful Pharaoh will also kill off creatures that attack should annex fail, and is a card you discard with Whispering Madness rather than casting it

Thanks for the feedback Red_X, I really appreciate it!
I see what you're saying about Drown in the Loch and I've thought about that too - keeping two mana up is asking quite a bit for a more aggressive deck. I will note though that the hand disruption, removal, Liliana , and your opponent's fetchlands also fill their graveyard. Even with that though, I agree that two mana is a lot and will probably opt for Fatal Push instead.
Yeah, I'm a sucker for cute interactions (which explains why casual EDH is probably my favorite format) and I agree that Invisible Stalker is really at its best when you're neutral or ahead on board. I toyed around with other unblockable creatures, but initially decided on Invisible Stalker since it can dodge spot removal - I'd hate to scavenge only for the targeted creature to get blown up. Funny, I just thought about Bitterblossom on my way home from work the other day. I like that idea! Evasive creatures, makes Death's Shadow stronger, and can make Tarmogoyf even stronger since it's both an enchantment and tribal.
Okay, gotcha. I haven't done too much testing of Liliana vs. Oko , but yeah, Tron, Urza, and aggro (esp. humans) are all very popular these days, so I can move Oko to the main board and side in Liliana for control or grindier matchups if it fits.
Thanks so much again!

A few comments.
First, I don't know if Drown in the Loch is the best card for this deck. You aren't milling your opponent except for vantress, and you really want to be proactive in the early turns so you don't have the mana to keep drowned up. Other removal spells may be better, like Go for the Throat , Fatal Push , or extra copies of what you've got already.
Second, Invisible Stalker seems too cute to me. Without varolz stalker is just dealing 1 point of damage a turn, which seems really weak. If you had something like Kitesail Freebooter or Bitterblossom that was a good card on its own that had evasion, varolz could work with that, but stalker just felt like a bad card whenever I drew it on the limited testing I did.
Finally, I would switch out the Liliana for oko, but that may be personal preference/bias. I feel like Oko is better against tron and aggro and may be worse in the attrition mirror, but not by a huge margin. However, I haven't played with the deck a ton and you may find one works a lot better than the other.
I like the deck.

]Also Aqueous Form probably shouldn't be a 4 of in a deck that already focuses on being hard to block.
And although White Green Bogles is definitely a better deck overall, I can see the fun in running blue. (I wouldn't choose red, however, but that's entirely up to you.)

Depending on how competitive you want to make this deck you want to consider serveral options all depending on your budget. I would reccomend if your creating a more casual deck you might want more card draw effects, such as Curiosity or Curious Obsession . Additionally having more ways to defend your powered up creatures will be critical to your gameplan; adding Mizzium Skin or Dive Down effects might be really handy. If your going for something as close to top tier as you can take it I would also add in more counterspells such as Stubborn Denial and throw in Hexproof threats such as Slippery Bogle and Invisible Stalker . Also if you want to be super jank replace more of your creatures with: Arcbound Slith , Slith Firewalker and Slith Strider .
