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 would also try to maximise your mana by adding cheaper support spells. With the in mind, I would run Duress over Thought Erasure and Vapor Snag over Doom Blade .

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!

Thanks! I preordered the missing cards. The base, I think, is strong for a budget deck. Money updates would go into the manabase and I would probably replace Skullsnatcher with two copies of Cryptic Command and Tetsuko with a a single Snapcaster Mage .

I will keep tweaking but the current build is playtesting nicely.
