Prowler's Helm Discussion

Your list is looking really good! You have pretty much most of the classic Aristocrats pieces in. Your creature list is spot-on IMO. I love how much removal you have.
A couple of suggestions here though. I am going to assume you're on at least something of a budget. If you're not, hit up EDHREC for more powerful suggestions, of course.
I would recommend a bit more ramp. You're sitting at four ramp pieces by my count, and Bontu's Monument and Ashnod's Altar are a bit questionable as true ramp. They're definitely good and worth their slots--don't get me wrong. I'd recommend at least eight ramp pieces in almost any deck. Some good includes would be Wayfarer's Bauble, Charcoal Diamond, Star Compass, Myriad Landscape, Prismatic Lens, Mind Stone, Worn Powerstone. With a bit of money you have Arcane Signet, Coldsteel Heart, Jet Medallion, Crypt Ghast, Magus of the Coffers and Sword of the Animist.
I wouldn't really recommend Altar of Dementia unless you can infinitely loop sacrifices and make it a win-con. If you just want free sac outlets; your commander, Ashnod's, Woe Strider, and Carrion Feeder should do the trick and give you value in return that you can actually use. Same with Ayara and stuff. Culling Dais and Spawning Pit are decent. One of Yehenni's biggest strengths is having a free sac outlet in the command zone.
Speaking of your commander, one of the reasons to run Yahenni over other mono-Black aristocrats commanders is the threat he/she turns into. I would recommend a few pieces of equipment to help end the game. Loxodon Warhammer, Blackblade Reforged, Lashwrithe, Trailblazer's Boots, Prowler's Helm, and of course Swiftfoot Boots are all good choices. Lots to choose from here but these are great for their price. Obviously there are all the Swords and Jitte and stuff if you have the cash or have them in your collection.

I wouldn't recommend Fireshrieker Balan has double strike virtually every time you play her. I'd recommend Inquisitor's Flail Conqueror's Flail or Hammer of Nazahn instead. I like your build, it's got some decent synergy. I did notice you left out Path to Exile, and I'd probably suggest Mangara, the Diplomat, Land Tax, Teferi's Protection, Flawless Maneuver, Prowler's Helm, Bloodforged Battle-Axe (which is crazy with Balan because you can use her ability at instant speed to equip the copies), Heliod's Intervention, Inspiring Statuary, Godsend, Heartstone, just to name a few things to consider. I do like your take on this deck though, it's very interesting

Prowler's Helm is always a funny card, I run it in my Skullbriar deck

I like your deck however there are some changes that I would suggest making.
- Lightning Greaves: This card sounds like it would be very good however cards like this come with a very big downside. The downside is that it doesn't just stop your opponents from targeting your stuff it also stops you from targeting your stuff. This means that you will not be able to equip any more equipment to your creatures after you put the greaves on them. I would recommend replacing them with Swiftfoot Boots
- Whispersilk Cloak: I think that this should be taken out of the deck for the same reason that Lightning Greaves should be taken out and that is that it gives shroud. If you want the cloak for the unblockable then replace it with Trailblazer's Boots or Prowler's Helm and if you want it for the protection replace it with Champion's Helm.
- Argentum Armor: This card is good if you can get it on a creature but I think it just cost way too much, it takes twelve mana to play and equip in one turn and if you just play the equipment and leave it on the board it becomes an immediate target and you probably won't get to attack with it.
And that is pretty much it, if you have any questions feel free to ask.

oscarofastora: Some replacements that I would recommend are have Champion's Helm replace General's Kabuto and have Darksteel Plate replace Lightning Greaves both of these new pieces of equipment protect your commanders without preventing you from attaching more equipment to them.
if you have the Whispersilk Cloak in the deck for the unblockable then you could replace it with Prowler's Helm and if you have it in the deck for the protection you could replace it with a cheap equipment tutor like Steelshaper's Gift so you can fetch a better piece of protection like the aforementioned Champion's Helm or Darksteel Plate.

Have you considered Prowler's Helm or Mogis's Marauder? They can both pretty budget and benefit your ninjas after they sneak in. Plus the marauder kinda demands to be blocked and thus acts like a decoy for your other ninjas. Hope this helps.

Woah... just imagine if Karn, Silver Golem was in the deck. Chunky artifacts + Darksteel Forge with creature-Karn becomes "I have blockers for days." Mycosynth Lattice turns him into an Armageddon, it turns Forge into "Vandalblast? What Vandalblast?" Lattice also turns Unwinding Clock into a creatureless Seedborn Muse, turns Clock of Omens into "Tap any 2 things: untap a thing," lets Sculpting Steel copy anything, lets Mirage Mirror copy planeswalkers (which Rings of Brighthearth combos will let you abuse completely), lets KCI turn your whole board into a resource, and lets you use Nevy's Disk to hold everyone's board state hostage. Disk and forge are also ridiculous. Drop the Lattice on top of that two-card combo and everyone gets up and walks away.
Other cards I would highly reccomend: Cloud Key, Crucible of Worlds, Temple of the False God, Ghirapur Orrery, Vedalken Orrery, Helm of the Host, Prowler's Helm, Whispersilk Cloak, Library of Leng, Venser's Journal, Aetherflux Reservoir, Staff of Domination, Thran Temporal Gateway, Aetherworks Marvel, Arch of Orazca.
