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 Gingerbrute +4 Faerie Miscreant Sometimes draws you a card and still has evasion. Haste on a 1 power creature isn't that great.

-4 Weaselback Redcap +4 Augur of Bolas Weaselback is a bad card augur is a premium 2 drop in the format.

-1 Mana Leak +1 Counterspell Counterspell is just strickly better if you can pay the UU cost which you will once you change the manabase.

-4 Izzet Guildgate +4 Evolving Wilds Shuffle is good for brainstorm but mainly it gets snow lands for skred.

-1 island -1 mountain +2 Terramorphic Expanse or Ash Barrens if you can afford it.

-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

-4 Galvanic Blast +4 Skred Main reason to go red is for Skred .

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!

Some thoughts:

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.

3) I don’t think Azra Smokeshaper is any good. Mist-Syndicate Naga , Throat Slitter or Ninja of the Deep Hours all feel a lot more playable than him.

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

Okey, cool! Then I would firstly recommend to take away four lands since (mathematically) you only need about 36 lands to have a good enough chance to draw them without drawing too many at any given time (also depends on how you shuffle of course ;) ). Then I would also again recommend to take a look at my deck when it comes to which lands you should play to up those a notch since there are a lot of lands that aren't very useful (especially the double-lands with no other effects) in the precon.

Other cards I genereally recommend to take out other than the lands:

Crystal Ball

Seer's Lantern

Adarkar Valkyrie

Conundrum Sphinx

Duskmantle Seer

Enigma Sphinx

Geode Golem

Jeskai Infiltrator

Loyal Subordinate

Loyal Unicorn

Magus of the Balance

Ninja of the Deep Hours

Serra Avatar

Silent-Blade Oni

Sower of Discord

Army of the Damned

Skull Storm

Cloudform

Lightform

So these are cards that I don't feel are good enough for the deck idea (casual/budget or not) or simply lack theme-quality. Feel free to ask if you need help replacing these cards with the cards you have or find cards that could fit the deck! :)

KidKontrol on Ninja strike force

-Cut fallen shinobi, too high ninjitsu cost, replace with a killspell like Tragic Slip .

-Ninja of the new moon isn't up to snuff, replace with Ninja of the Deep Hours .

-Replace the phantom ninja with Mistblade Shinobi .

-Mist-Syndicate Naga will probably be soft to a lot of decks, replace with Changeling Outcast .

-Choking tethers needs to be another killspell too, or maybe Gudul Lurker
