Serious question, why not take out a some of the lower-tier rats and replace them with Rat Colony? Cards that stick out as undervalued to me would be Skullsnatcher, Scrib Nibblers, and Ruin Rat. Don't have to go crazy with Rat Colony to still get value out of it, especially with this deck.

Blistercoil Weird and Nivmagus Elemental are less traditional but fairly effective options in spell heavy lists- especially since you've only got access to U/G turn 1 rather than U/R. Steppe Lynx are worth looking at- but supporting white mana then fetch is less than perfect in your list.
I've been running grave hate against KCI and storm, just to slow them down. Be it Dryad Militant or Faerie Macabre, Scavenging Ooze or Skullsnatcher. (ninjitsu on bloodbraid is disynergy if you hit it, but synergy if its in hand. Its an interesting mix.) Either way, there are a lot of options out there depending on what you want to hit off braid and what you want in your hand. Heck, you can support Jund Charm in this list.

Thanks for checking out my deck. Yours looks pretty good too.
I'm currently debating on whether to keep Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive or not in mine for the same reasons I think you should take another look at him. Currently including himself you have 7-ish creatures that he interacts with, some of which have flying. I didn't count ones that say "can't be blocked" already. He does do the all important task of making some ninjas unblockable like Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow, Mistblade Shinobi, Skullsnatcher, and Walker of Secret Ways. So just something to think about, I haven't decided if his impact is good enough as of yet in my own deck...
You might consider a spot for Fireshrieker or Grappling Hook to double up on the ninja combat damage triggers. I found Fireshrieker quite handy back when I played a 60 card ninja deck. Of course if you don't want to deal with equipping Strionic Resonator essentially does the same thing.

Also..I think the counterspells can be reworked and the baral cut. This being an aggressive deck that wants creatures every turn and mana up to cast the big time walks and what not make the counterspells awkward. I feel you should run either 5-7 cheap or free counterspells or focus more on your creature count. Since you're lacking the green for the green pump spells like beastmasters, triumph and just the solid 1 cmc green creatures that edric has I feel more powerful threats are necessary to help with the ebb and flow. Black gives you access to better mass hate and recovery that green doesnt have.
I think Skullsnatcher has a good home here to help combat hulk type decks that use reanimation to help combo off as well as it being a ninja, as well as adding in Faerie Macabre for said same reasons. Redundancy yea. Also I think cards like Slip Through Space, Artful Dodge, and just more cheap evasive creatures will help powerthrough utilizing ninjitsu better since a good chunk of your creatures and your commander can abusive that mechanic.
Sensei's Divining Top is just good in this deck

thanks but besides Chainer's Edict i think the deck is pretty fun as is. it is not meant for competitive use but for fun. the Oubliette was in there because a friend has some extra i can trade for. likewise the Skullsnatcher is there for theme and less for practicality since a friend of mine was like "i'd use that its funny". by all means if you do find something you would play over anything else here go for it. especially since Disfigure was released in masters 25.
