Currently building this deck, but I had a few quick questions about whether you'd considered a few cards. In particular, how do you feel about dropping the Negate for a Heroic Intervention? What is the purpose of Wingcrafter, and would it be worth slotting Wind Zendikon in it's place? The last card I'm looking to put in is Greenseeker, which is slower than something like Arbor Elf, but can fix for Blue Mana as well as help reduce the amount of basics we draw.

Hello there! I don't see anything huge you're missing (other than lands), but I definitely think you should at least consider Sol Ring, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Eternal Witness, Mystical Tutor, Plasm Capture, Counterspell, and probably Blue Sun's Zenith and Stroke of Genius as well. If you're looking for cards to cut to make room for lands, I would start with the following. A lot of those cards are for what appears to be an Edric subtheme; I'd stick to just one plan, making a lot of mana and killing your opponents with it.
- Comparative Analysis
- Dive Down
- Gift of Tusks
- Hail Storm
- Hindering Touch
- Mizzium Skin
- Scatter Arc
- Storm Seeker
- Hands of Binding
- Hidden Strings
- Last Thoughts
- Needle Storm
- Open Into Wonder
- Pirate's Prize
- Storm Front
- Anvil of Bogardan
- Edric, Spymaster of Trest
- Graceful Adept
- Gudul Lurker
- Siren Stormtamer
- Slither Blade
- Triton Shorestalker
In any case, good luck! Feel free to let me know if you want some more suggestions!

Ornithopter is great with ninjas, dont listen to the haters.
I love the usage of spellstutters too btw.
The only downside I can see to your build is that you have an excessive amount of stuff returning to hand all the time. This will tax your mana and you will probably find yourself behind in tempo.
If you want more ninjas, Sakashima's Student is great.
A great ninja enabler has been Wingcrafter for me.
I also run a playset of Shadow Rift, which Ive found to be fantastic.
As super secret tech, you could run Genesis Chamber! If you have 2 of those many 1-drops that return a guy to hand, and a genesis chamber out, you can basically pay 1 blue mana to make a myr. And you are doing enough bouncing as it is that you should be getting way more benefit out of the chamber than your opponent anyway.
As a parting thought:Ninjitsu and Firstrike work great together as you can deal damage with a creature in the first strike step, then ninjitsu out a ninja and have it deal its damage in the regular damage step. So if you can give your guys first strike, it basically makes your attacks twice as effective.

Again, Thanks for all the suggestions. It's not a full playset, but I could replace Fleeting Memories with Ongoing Investigation, and 2x Tireless Tracker with a couple Whirler Rogue. They would really help with the secondary win condition of hitting big with Chasm Skulker or Lorescale Coatl and would mean I could remove Wingcrafter.
Precursor Golem is perfect in this deck, and is definitely going in with Confront the Unknown and maybe Epic Confrontation for the removal the deck has been missing. Also, I hadn't realised that Mechanized Production doesn't have to be attached to the winning artifact.

Thanks for the comment, I didn't realise about Counterspell not being legal, so thanks there. I will probably sub out Altar of the Brood but Wingcrafter is staying until I figure out a better way to give Chasm Skulker flying. Birds of Paradise was a stupid thing to miss, and they would make good replacements for Hidden Herbalists, which often miss their revolt trigger if I play them on curve. So I'll definitely make those changes.
Thanks for the comment, this is definitely a casual deck but iI'm always looking to make it better.
P.S: I hadn't thought of that flavour win before, will definitely go for it now, even if it is 4 times a turn

I also think it counts as a flavor fail if you don't say "Jinkies!" every time you investigate ;)
Very cool, unique deck!

You have only 5 sources of draw in the deck. Concentrate and Wingcrafter are both strong inclusions here. You're also very mana-hungry to get to some of your more flexible spells, so I'd say Hedron Archive is a solid inclusion as well.
