Vapor Snag Discussion
1 day ago
Wishes are kind of an odd inclusion in cEDH.
One of the problems I see with them is that with having 100 card singleton format, that even having an extra 3 tutors means that you are doing to have to cut back on other sections of the deck. Such as cutting some of the interaction suite to fit them in, which therefore cuts on your resiliency.
Another drawback, is that you are then limited to a strict selection of 15 cards. What happens if you need something that isn't in your sideboard and you only have a wish to tutor?
All that being said, they can be incredibly useful to return cards from exile. During a YawgWill turn, you should be able to play a spell, cast yawg will and then wish the card back for a 3rd cast.
The sideboard option is great though. While your interaction suite should be tuned to your meta, having all the answers all the time can be hard. I would be looking at running: Rolling Earthquake Vandalblast By Force Force of Negation Rapid Hybridization Vapor Snag
and a few more interaction spells and possibly a tutor or two.
Hope this helps :)

Modern Horizons - 8th June 2019
I just picked up some cards from Modern Horizons, which has given some nice upgrades. I've replaced Faerie Miscreant with Faerie Seer , which is going to be more than just a 1/1 flier more often than miscreant was. String of Disappearances replaces Vapor Snag , though I'm not sure if it's actually better. The upside is the ability to bounce your own creature as well as one of theirs for UUU. I've replaced an Island with Waterlogged Grove . As for the sideboard, I've replaced Unwind with Force of Negation .
Note: TappedOut seems to have deprecated updates without offering an alternative, so I am commenting here instead.

This looks a bit like my first draft. Here are few comments.
I would run more 0-1 drops because you really want to be dropping Infiltrator or Deep Hours on turn 2. You want to get the card advantage going early otherwise you risk falling behind as the game progresses. After all, Ninja have smaller bodies, no natural evasion and are costly if not supported by cheap enablers. You can consider Tormented Soul or maxing out thopter.
I REALLY like your idea of pushing Naga and Tetsuko. I would probably run the full set of Mist-Syndicate Naga and replace Cunning Evasion with a full set of either Distortion Strike or Shadow Rift so you can keep connecting with Naga and making clones. Cover of Darkness would be even better if this is just for casual kitchen table magic.
The Naga/Tetsuko synergy would be my prinary focus in this build and I might be dropping Fallen and Moonblade for Skullsnatcher and an extra Mistblade Shinobi since they are both cheap and ca potentially wreck opposing strategies by exiling cards from the yard and clearing the way your clone army. Both also benefit greatly from Tetsuko.
Overall it is very inspiring!

Renewed version of this deck is finally here!
I dropped and added . This enables Unmoored Ego , Vapor Snag , Void Stalker and Serum Visions . Although the original idea for this deck is cool it didn't thrive in playtesting. I'm hoping this new version will do better.

If you're going for izzet counter burn Vapor Snag is an ever so slightly better option in place of Unsummon . Faithless Looting also might be great in this deck. Allows you to filter through your deck and has flashback so that you can use it late game as another way to combo with Niv-Mizzet, Parun

The biggest issue is that you lack removal. You have plenty of resource denial. Narset, Parter of Veils could help make it work. You definitely need to run Vapor Snag and maybe play Callous Dismissal . You probably have to play Tempest Djinn and Delver of Secrets Flip. I also like Elusive Spellfist . You MUST play Serum Visions and maybe Opt as digging through your deck is important.

A few thoughts. This is gonna be some word vomit, so take what you please. I'm also only going to suggest more budget-friendly cards, since this is casual (so no Cyclonic Rift ).
- My first thought is to get this strictly down to 60 cards. Your chances of getting to what you need is significantly higher for every number you go above 60. With a deck like this, cut it down to about 23 lands, and fill in the rest.
- Take out Kasmina's Transmutation . There are so many good red/blue removal. From Lightning Bolt to Lava Coil ; from Vapor Snag to Curse of the Swine .
- You don't want too many counterspells, cause permanent removal is just as good most of the time, so I'd take out Counterflux and bump up Ionize to four copies.
- Hijack should definitely be a sideboard card, since control is a popular archetype. Same goes for Protean Raider .
- You have more than , so Pyromancer's Goggles might not be the best fit, but running a 1 of isn't too bad.
- You can never have too many Young Pyromancer s if you are running spells! Also see Murmuring Mystic and Talrand, Sky Summoner .
- Keranos, God of Storms is legendary and top of your curve. Consider cutting 1-2, but definitely leave him.
