Hey, consider more low CMC fliers and cards with delve? More low CMC fliers who give you value when they ETB can take more advantage of ninjutsu since they will most of the time hit a player without being blocked. You want to bounce them back to your hand so they can ETB again. Delve spells have high CMCs when revealed with Yuriko, but the casting cost can be reduced by exiling cards from your graveyard.

Cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker
  • Consuming Aberration
  • Stormtide Leviathan
  • Deep-Sea Kraken
  • Wrexial, the Risen Deep
  • Mindcrank
  • Bloodchief Ascension
  • Connive / Concoct
  • Rags / Riches
  • Rise from the Grave
  • Traitor's Clutch
  • Spite / Malice
  • Sai of the Shinobi

I'm suggesting to consider cutting the opponent mill strategy because there's not enough of it. With opponent mill in multiplayer Commander go all out with Oona, Queen of the Fae or Phenax, God of Deception as Commander or infinite combos with Altar of Dementia / Altar of the Brood . Opponent mill is a not a reliable strategy unless you have a lot of it and are focusing on it. Self-mill is powerful, but opponent mill is not. Most of the cards to consider cutting are high CMC cards and replace them with low CMC cards. The delve spells are upgrades for some of the split cards.

Good luck with your deck.

multimedia Thanks for all the great suggestions! Among the lands, I plan on using Command Tower, Tainted Peak, Tainted Isle, and Crumbling Necropolis because I can trade for them with my play group. As for the nonland cards, I'm still in the process of buying the current cards, but Fellwar Stone, Waste Not, and Dark Deal sound super solid esp. for the deck. What would you cut to include these three cards?

Again, thanks so much for the suggestions!

Hey, to expand on what others have commented on about the manabase here's some budget playable lands to consider adding. All my suggestions will be $4 or less (most are $2 or less).

Hey, before you get Lili (I presume Liliana of the Veil) which is an expensive card consider first improving the manabase? There's several budget lands to consider adding in place of the really bad dual lands. For a little less than the price of Lili you could add all the cards below and Rift/Labman: upgrade the manabase, add some good Zombies and nice support cards. That's much better for your overall deck than adding one card.

In terms of total cost of the deck, your single Ugin could be sold/swapped for enough decent lands to make the mana-base much more consistent, thereby solidifying the base of the deck. Or keep it and just spend more money on lands. That said, I agree with Darth_Savage that you'll want to cut back to 3 colors maximum. Just looking at your mana-base and CMC graph, I'd suggest you start with some U/B lands such as: Sunken Hollow, Tainted Isle, Temple of Deceit, and/or Underground River. There are, of course, better lands that cost more money - I just suggested the mid-range ones. You can find more lands fairly easily with this lovely unformat here on tappedout from ForgotenWaffle - All the lands in a sorted list (Unformat)

Mindcrank combos with Duskmantle Guildmage quite nicely, in case you havent been hit with that one yet...

For budget-y mana - look at Underground River, Tainted Isle, Yavimaya Coast, Skyshroud Forest, Tainted Wood, and Llanowar Wastes
