Thada Adel, Acquisitor Discussion

Hey dude :)
really nice deck !
You'll probably lack some removals and/or counterspells in order to be efficient : Counterspell, Mana Leak, Memory Lapse, Remand, Pongify, Rapid Hybridization and Song of the Dryads are very efficient ones and quiet affordable.
I tried some games with Lullmage Mentor and in a multiplayer format it is kinda useless unless you have 20+ counterspells :/. If there is already 7 merfolks on the board the wrath is comin' !
Your curve is kinda low (which is good) so you probably won't need that much ramp. You can probably cut 1 or 2 thing in Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip Cultivate Kodama's Reach Sol Ring Song of Freyalise and instead add creatures that will help you hit your lands each turns such as Silvergill Adept, Jadelight Ranger, Wistful Selkie or Merfolk Branchwalker. Thada Adel, Acquisitor is extra to steal the signets/sol rings of your opponents early game and powerfull stuff in end games.
Surgespanner is a must have in your deck and combine with some untap shenaningans and enough manas you'll be abble to bounce the whole board. Empress Galina is a blast in multiplayer and some Vedalken Orrery or Leyline of Anticipation will help you maximize the value of such key creatures that need to pass one turn in order to be effective. Opposition is a must have in blue heavy creatures wide decks and when you have the tools to untap your creatures it's even better :)
I really like the draw on Vanquisher's Banner furthermore it has an impact the time it enters the battlefield which is really nice
Merrow Commerce is really nice in duel but not that good in a multiplayer format.
If you wanna take a look at my builds (they're made for duel so it's kinda different but maybe you'll find interesting stuff) :

Love it, I'd definitely add more threat cards like Heroes' Podium and up the count of threatening legendary creatures like Evra, Halcyon Witness, Medomai the Ageless or Jazal Goldmane who are especially good with flash cause then people can't see them coming
Also definitely add Honor-Worn Shaku
Ishai, Ojutai Dragonspeaker, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Lena, Selfless Champion, Linvala, the Preserver, Meishin, the Mind Cage, Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker (really nice with flash), Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Rune-Tail, Kitsune Ascendant, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Yosei, the Morning Star

For unblockable creatures, Thada Adel, Acquisitor is really good since there's usually at least one player with islands so you can steal their artifacts. Ornithopter is a cheap way to ninjutsu a player with no flying blockers.
Notorious Throng could be good to generate more fliers, and also gives an extra turn since you have quite a few Rogues.
Dowsing Dagger Flip is a really good way to ramp since your creatures are unblockable. Sword of the Animist helps too, and removing lands from the deck increases the damage you get out of Yuriko's ability.
You could try Larceny to make opponents run out of cards since your creatures will easily deal combat damage.
Cyclonic Rift is probably the best blue spell since it deals with any situation, so you should include it if possible.

Realy wish to run in the deck, but protection is in extreme shortage
Too heavy to play as often as I would like
Due to heavy grave hate in my meta combined with the delve cards in the deck, is currently suboptimal
Same as poor thada =,<

@Valzasaurus Glad you enjoy it.
About life gain: Don't worry! The cool thing about theft deck is that the answers always lie in your opponents decks ;)
So these are the cards you probably have overlooked: Dead Man's Chest, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Acquire, Expropriate, Knowledge Exploitation, Mind's Dilation, Praetor's Grasp, Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Sakashima the Impostor, Evil Twin, Stolen Identity, Psychic Intrusion, Memory Plunder, Sakashima's Student, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Daring Thief & Silent-Blade Oni

Thada Adel, Acquisitor seems great for this. Also Mind's Dilation for late game. I have a Boros-colored deck built around stealing creatures and Flinging them at you with Brion Stoutarm that might have some other options for you: Mine-on Stoutarm, like Stolen Strategy for instance.
