I would add a set of unblockable blue one-drops like Slither Blade to make sure that you can ninjustu early. If you've got the cash, other good ninjas include Higure, the Still Wind , Ninja of the Deep Hours , and Throat Slitter . I would also think you'd want some removal in there somewhere.

With the card draw from Ninja of the Deep Hours i think you would do better ditching the 8 bounce creatures because you can bounce your ninjas using other ninjas. more unblockable spells.

-4 Negate +4 Accumulated Knowledge You ideally have 8 real card advantage spells in 4 ninja and 4 accumulated knowledge. You can replace the ninjas with more cantrips to find draw spells but you need some draw.
-4 Opt -4 Thrill of Possibility -1 Chain Lightning -2 Shock +4 Preordain +4 Ponder +3 Brainstorm Uut with bad cantrips in with better ones and shock is just not good enough for pauper not even in burn. Chain lightning isn't BAD but it also isn't as good as Brainstorm
Add snow lands for Skred and play only 2 Snow-Covered Mountain s and the rest in Snow-Covered Island s. My suggestions put you way more into blue. Snow covered lands are 50 cents each but worth it. 4 Ninja of the Deep Hours will run you around $7-$8 but if you have pauper events at your store I would sudgest "investing" in them because they will help you win. IF your store is just casual pauper then you may not want to bother with that.

No, these are not identical. Master triggers in the declare blockers, if no blockers are declared, similar to how you can only activate ninjutsu ( eg. Ninja of the Deep Hours ) after blockers are declared.
Aurelia needs to be declared as an attacker for her ability to trigger, which does not work favorably with the Kaalia trigger, since Kaalia puts the creature tapped and attacking.
From Aurelia's Gatherer:
If Aurelia is put onto the battlefield attacking, the triggered ability won’t trigger.

TrueTribal: I didn't intend for it, but the deck plays very tempo-y, so I think that could definitely emphasize the tempo plan, for sure!
Altoman: Dang, I play with a really tight budget on Youtube so I couldn't afford Ninja of the Deep Hours . Not only does that seem like a great replacement in this deck but would be absolutely crazy if you could play both. Nice!

1) I know you say the curve is low... but it’s not that low, you still have a 4-cost ninjitsu. 18 mana is more what burn plays... see how it goes but i think you will be wanting at least 22 lands.
2) i think Fetid Pools is a mistake. It’s too slow and you’ll seldom have the resources to warrant cycling. Use the UB fastland.
4) some of your non-creature spells seem bad... actually everything except for Opt . You can run better killspells in the form of Fatal Push . Blue has many much more effective 1cmc drawspells than Night's Whisper. Dispel is probably more practical than Negate , but it really depends what you’re trying to counter (either way, there’s better options than Negate). Your enchantments would be better served as more 1-mana disruption and killspells so that you can get to swinging with ninjas quicker
