Three of the cards in this deck - Broken Dam, Cavern Harpy, and Silent-Blade Oni - are illegal in modern, if it matters. You might consider Blustersquall, Artful Dodge, Slip Through Space over Broken Dam.

I'd recommend Invisible Stalker over Dimir Infiltrator unless the transmute ability is hugely important to you - otherwise the Stalker is just strictly better.

As far as ninjas are concerned you've got just about everything; perhaps remove the two copies of the illegal Silent-Blade Oni in favor of two more Mistblade Shinobi.

Other thoughts include: Tormented Soul (for this deck strictly worse than Triton Shorestalker, but the next-best thing since you're already running four of the latter); Inkfathom Witch (another possible replacement for the Oni); and Boomerang, Dispel, Familiar's Ruse, Fatal Push, and Murderous Cut.

On the whole I like it a lot; +1 from me.

Wrexial, the Risen Deep does fit the theme however I have tried to avoid creatures that need to deal damage to a player for their ability to work. None of those are terrible and all of them could go in the deck but currently I prefer cards that always get 1 extra cast over cards that get you 0 to infinite. One of the few in the deck right now is Maelstrom Archangel but that only got in because I was looking for cards that work with Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder.

The cards that need to damage a player for free casts are Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Maelstrom Archangel, Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder, Master of Predicaments, Mindleech Mass, Silent-Blade Oni and cipher cards.

This looks like a job for ninja!

Ninja of the Deep Hours, Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, and Silent-Blade Oni are all stars, however any Ninja is good with your unblockable creatures.

ALRIGHT! Rockin' the NINJA theme :p I made a Ninja Primer if you are interested in some pointers! (I won't shamelessly advertise in your comments unless your interested :p )

The "from-the-hip" suggestions I have are to drop your land count to a MAX of 24 lands.... Id also drop Dire Undercurrents... its too slow and more so wishful thinking (From my personal experience)... Glen Elendra Liege is kinda the same situation.... the +1/+1 buff SEEMS nice but your never going to out-muscle anyone efficiently or timely with Ninjas... If Faeries are your thing Consider Faerie Miscreant and Spellstutter Sprite for both Ninja enablers and cheap ETB perks...and Ornithopter is almost an auto-include run 4 of... and Signal Pest is an honorable mention for Ninja enabling. I would also consider Aqueous Form to slap on your ninjas ;)... Distortion Strike is also a money maker :D

Sakashima's Student & Silent-Blade Oni & Umezawa's Jitte are not modern legal.. I wish they were cuz there are neat but they gotta go unless you change to casual...

Overall the guts of the deck seems to be in order +1 from me GO-NINJA-GO-NINJA-GO!

For anyone coming here via my posts, here is a list of the cards (minus the mana base) that I'd be adding if I switched from Izzet to Grixis:

Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver
Mindleech Mass
Fiend of the Shadows
Praetor's Grasp
Memory Plunder
Wrexial, the Risen Deep
Silent-Blade Oni

If I figure out more, I'll add them in a later comment.

Im building a similar deck in modern format, it's far from finished, but this are some interesting cards you might like:

Grave Betrayal: opponent's dying creatures becomes yours.

Dimir Doppelganger: graveyard hate, multiple use, copy.

Silent-Blade Oni: nice card in the battlefield, graveyard or hand.

Panoptic Mirror: lots of synergy whith this kind of decks... multiple bribery, praetors grasp ... etc.

luck with the deck :)
