Interesting deck, so +1 from me, here's my 2 cents.
- There are some cards that are great in Commander that fit your theme! Among these are Whispersilk Cloak, Rogue's Passage, Cloak and Dagger, Swiftfoot Boots, Invisible Stalker, Shadowmage Infiltrator, Thalakos Deceiver, and Quietus Spike.
Coastal Piracy also comes to mind.
The next cards I'm going to suggest aren't exactly on theme, but I think they do enough in your deck that they should be included regardless, as they have such powerful synergy with what you play.
If you want any more suggestions feel free to let me know!

- Drop Buried Alive, it really has no place here
- Kefnet's Monument won't work with ninjutsu
- Essence Scatter is good but very narrow and you have so many other great counters
- Suffer the Past can be strong but you're playing a lot of other graveyard hate, and graveyard theft
- Harvester of Souls is good, but maybe try something faster? Baleful Strix, Shadowmage Infiltrator, or Thalakos Seer would be ideal for all the on the board, off the board, play and can replace some unblockable creatures as they already have evasion
- Exotic Orchard seems like an odd choice in this deck, you only need 2 colours.
- Open Into Wonder seems pretty steep for unblockable when you already have cheaper options.

Murder your Murder's run Archive Traps drop Lilliana Vess for Glimpse the Unthinkable instantly turns your phantasm deadly. Mind Funeral is just awesome, probably toss Shadowmage Infiltrator for those. Mind Sculpt is a good one as well, you can afford to drop at least 2 Wight of Precinct Six for those guys. Try these add ins, and see how fast you can mill your opponent now. as your deck stands right now, it doesn't have enough win-cons on either side, ie beefed up creatures, or mill fast enough to win. this should help. plus your adds really make your mana use, efficient. speaking of mana, get rid of Reliquary Tower and add Ghost Quarter that way, you can almost ensure your Archive Trap goes off.

Praetor's Grasp gives you a fun way to steal a good blue or black centerpiece from an opponent-at the worst it's another Sol Ring or utility.
Since you're playing to avoid being picked on early, you can skip a turn with Magosi, the Waterveil and use it to a get a second turn later when it matters more.
Dauthi Embrace is neat because you can make any creature essentially unblockable-or so that it can't block at a critical juncture. May be fun political wise to aid someone with a swing, or make it so a critical blocker isn't there...

Shadowmage Infiltrator is an awesome card, but it has fear, an ability that WotC is no longer using, so I have made an updated version of it, with only the most minor of changes, as seen, below:
Shadowmage Intruder Show
Creature - human wizard
Whenever shadowmage intruder deals combat damage to a player, draw a card.
I changed merely two lines of text to make this card: I altered its name (very slightly) and replaced fear with skulk. I had contemplated giving it menace, but that ability is better on creatures with higher power and toughness, while skulk perfectly fits the theme of this card.
What does everyone think of this card? How well did I do with it?

Is it possible to merge the "Modern Masters 2017 wishlist/speculation" thread that I started with this one? There is no need to have two separate threads discussing this set.
I, also, say that it is far too early to judge the entire set based upon the few cards that have been revealed. Not every card can be a very valuable one, but I do hope that WotC does not reprint Dark Confidant and Tarmogoyf again, since those cards were reprinted in both of the previous two Modern Masters sets, and also that they do not print a very inexpensive card, such as Comet Storm, as a mythic rare (that card definitely should have been downgraded to a normal rare, in my mind).
I shall share the general opinion that the person on the artwork is Snapcaster Mage, since the previous two sets gave new artwork to Dark Confidant and Shadowmage Infiltrator, two other cards that were designed by winners of events.
