I recommend stronger removal. Vandalblast, Dreadbore, Hero's Downfall, and Terminate are great for getting the job done. You also want creatures that can do easy damage. Goblin Fireslinger, Lobber Crew, Tormented Soul, and Bloodgift Demon are great at doing this.

I have played Ornithopter in similar decks, and I agree with its logic. The reason I suggested Tormented Soul over the Ghoul is that any time you give your opponent a decision, regardless of how tough, you still leave the game in their control. An unblockable creature would take away any control from the opponent.

I love the overall concept and feel of this deck!

A few might consider putting Aether Spellbomb or Crystal Shard or something similar, so that you would have more options for bouncing your ninja's back into your hand...that way your ninja's can safely lay down a block and reuse their ninjutsu ability....

Another card that would be worth considering is Tormented's a better option than Vedalken Ghoul

There are four main deck archetypes in MTG: aggro, control, midrange and combo. Every deck falls, to some extent, in those categories.

Aggro uses fast creatures (Spike Jester) and/or burn (Lightning Bolt). It basically tries to kill them before they kill you.

Control does the opposite, it just tries to not die. Just answers threats throughout the whole game (with stuff like Dissolve, Silence the Believers, Crux of Fate) until it drops a huge, hard hitting, hard to kill threat (Pearl Lake Ancient, AEtherling, Elspeth, Sun's Champion).

Midrange keeps out of the extremes and uses efficient threats (Siege Rhino, Loxodon Smiter) and protects them.

Combo uses cards that put together, either go infinite or very big. There are two combo decks right now in standard, the main one being Jeskai Ascendancy + other three cards.

aggro usually runs red, control usually runs blue, and midrange usually runs green.

aggro usually runs about 22 land, midrange 24, and control 26, although it varies a little.

Your deck is kind of all over the place, using aggressive cards (Hypnotic Siren, Searing Blaze, Hordeling Outburst) and very slow cards (Shockmaw Dragon, Dig Through Time, Temporal Trespass) It will probably lose to decks that fall into the archetypes, since they are very focused in doing one thing and one thing only.

People usually run four of every card of interest (leaving the decks stronger, if less interesting).

Izzet (R/U) can either be a mediocre control or a decent aggro deck. Obelisk of Urd does very well in token decks. I've never seen it, but Howl of the Horde is probably its best when copying burn spells (Lightning Strike). Polymorphist's Jest is kind of bad, since it doesnt actually kill anything. People don't usually use walls, too. If you take out the control cards and commit more to the small token/burn plan, this can become a nice aggro/tempo deck.

Unblockable seems better than it actually is. I used to have 4x Tormented Soul on my first deck until I realized Spike Jester is 100 times better.

I see you have 60 cards in your deck. That's nice. I used to have 80 card decks when I started and that is actually awful.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask. I have a lot of decks in my page if you wanna take a look. For example:

Aggro: Rakdos Curveball, Very Budget Monoblack Suicide Aggro KTK

Control: Military Budget Reductions in the USA

Midrange: I don't actually have any, since the good ones can be very expensive and I, for the most part, make budget decks.

Combo: The Walking Abyss (Lightning Greaves + Master of Cruelties )

What about Tormented Soul for the direct attack? It cost 1 less mana, but it has 1 less power?

misterbiscuitbarrel, if I go Esper, it'll be for Invisible Stalker, Treasure Cruise and possibly Blighted Agent with some blue utility in the sideboard, but thanks for the advice! My main issue is that flying just isn't evasive enough, while being unblockable makes it a massive target (this is why I don't run Tormented Soul, for anybody wondering). Thanks for the tips!
