Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow Discussion

Starting from a precon is best at this time - I would not recommend last year's planeswalker offerings, but some of the alternative commanders in there are pretty sweet - Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow is one of the coolest commnaders with lots of ways to build her.

hkhssweiss my meta is more casual and there's a huge gap in terms of power level between the decks, across all my play groups. They range from tuned Narset, Enlightened Master , focused Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow , to precon decks with some upgrades.
Depending on the folks I meet and the decks they bring during our weekly gaming sessions, I don't always get to pilot my Yennett deck, as much as I wish to.
If you've checked out the other decks I build, you'd noticed that they're quite varied and would include fun and janky themes as well. This grants me the flexibility to adjust to the play groups' power level.

Hey, an idea to consider is to use Aminatou, but play base white and blue, just splashing black only for her. This would simplify the manabase making it essentially a two color manabase with a few budget dual lands/mana rocks that can make black such as Command Tower , Caves of Koilos , Exotic Orchard , Sunken Hollow , Signets/Talismans, Fellwar Stone , Commander's Sphere and Chromatic Lantern .
Lavinia, Azorius Renegade and Aven Mindcensor are cards to consider to help against your Jodah opponent. Lavinia counters spells that are cast for free, she shuts down Omniscience. Her other ability stops your opponents from casting noncreature spells that are higher mana cost than the amount of lands that they control. Jodah's ability lets your opponent ignore normal mana costs of cards, but Lavinia stops this for noncreature cards because she looks at the actual mana cost of a card that's cast no matter what.
Mindcensor helps to even the playing field against your opponent's tutors. Instead of your opponent searching their entire library for a card they can only search the top four cards which is a big difference. This card stops Conflux. Against Jodah you want to try to keep him off the battlefield or shut him down when he's on the battlefield. Imprisoned in the Moon , Deep Freeze and Darksteel Mutation are enchantments that when Jodah is enchanted by one of them he loses his ability to change the mana cost of spells. They also don't kill Jodah this means that enchanted Jodah stays on the battlefield, but is useless for your opponent until he/she or another opponent can remove the enchantment. Since they're enchantments you can blink them with Aminatou and change what creature you enchant.
Another idea is if you want to make a completely new deck with a new Commander is consider Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow ? She's one of the strongest cards in the precon and is only two colors. A deck built around her however will be completely different than one with Aminatou. To make a deck from start to finish I think would be a very good learning experience for you.

@triproberts12 Thank you very much for the feedback! I'm quite new to magic so I'll definitely be looking into your suggestions. I love the Kindred Discovery suggestion and will most certainly be play tested in the future, I can see how that would be a lot of value throughout the game. I will also definitely consider running Phyrexian Tower as I could see that being incredibly good for getting creatures that we're Ninjutsu'd out back onto the board on the same turn. The reason I have so few lands is because Yuriko's Ninjutsu and the unblock-able creatures cost so little that I felt that I had a lot of lands that were going to waste on the board and was also drawing into tonnes of lands dealing 0 damage to my enemies, So I decided I was going to cut around 4 lands to remedy this issue. If you're thinking of a new deck to play I couldn't recommend Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow highly enough as shes a joy to pilot and has quite a high skill cap to fully utilise the Ninjutsu mechanic, And thanks again!

I don't know what your financial situation is like, but Top and Azusa are pretty valuable, and I might just trade them for handfuls of $5-10 cards for whatever deck you choose to build. If not, Azusa is a good fit for Tatyova, Benthic Druid . Top is still good in EDH, although some people frown on it for how it can slow games down. The best deck for it is Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow . I would stay away from Earth Surge shenanigans. Wrath of God effects are very common in EDH, and turning your lands into creatures for more than a single turn is dangerous.
Here's a review of the most recent preconstructed EDH decks that Wizards makes. They function right out of the box, and the WUG deck has been rated the best to play as is, lining up well with your color preferences and the dual lands you have.

Hi there! My Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow is part ninja tribal, part topdeck matters, and it is aggresive enough to win turn 5-6 (no infinite combos). Goal of the deck is to show fat cmc cards from the top with Yuriko or other ninjas (or creature type shenanigans) and kill the table with Yuriko's ability.
To kill the table, you need to have 3 triggers and tutor 3 cards. Insidious Dreams is the best way to tutor. Some combination of Lim-Dul's Vault Mystical Tutor Vampiric Tutor Personal Tutor Imperial Seal and Brainstorm Scroll Rack
Note that most of those can and should be played instant speed with yuriko triggers already on the stack. You tutor for: Commit / Memory Temporal Trespass Blinkmoth Infusion Draco Treasure Cruise Draco and Blinkmoth Infusion should go last, unless you go for the win, as they are unplayable. 30 damage to each opp with just 2 triggers is really fun.
Out Aqueous Form
I want to increase ninja number >> higher damage output and swapping Okiba-Gang Shinobi with Ninja of the Deep Hours - draw is better, than discard.
Also corrected custom categories.
1.3 Moar ninjas, less draw, replaced one xtra turn with Time Warp
1.4 Added more interaction, maximized my top CMC spells, added some expensive proxy cards.
