Changeling (This card is every creature type.)
Changeling Outcast can't block and can't be blocked.

I would try cutting 1x Counterspell and adding 1x Familiar's Ruse to see how that feels... Ornithopter is kinda tricky due to the tribal benefits for faerie/ninja typings as well as maintaining cards in hand to keep Force of Negation live (currently 26-28 so your plenty fine there)... for playtest purposes try to going down 2x Changeling Outcast and 2x Faerie Seer and trying combinations of thopter and Faerie Miscreant to see what you like/performs best.

Jfostb - So take any of my suggestions with a grain of salt as I am still relatively new to MTG and have not played a deck like before. Looking at the deck, I am assuming that your main play is to use the Ninjutsu ability of the various rather expensive ninjas you have to get them out faster/cheaper than you would typically be able to otherwise. This is supported by a good amount of standard I and spells I would expect to see with a control theme from I and removal from helping also clear the way for your ninjas.
I feel like part of the reason you have issues getting the deck up and running is you only have 14 ninjas total, including Changeling Outcast, and Changeling Outcast is the only creature you have in the deck that guarantees you will be able to activate the Ninjutsu ability. Since you have access to I, I would have thought to see some enchantments to make creatures unblockable or other creatures with similar abilities. the minor Fairy tribe theme is a nice touch but not sure if it is optimized for what I believe is your intention with the deck.
Also, personally, I am not a huge fan of the inclusion of Inquisition of Kozilek in the deck as it feels a little out of place compared to everything else. All the other spells are centered around keeping things from sticking to your opponents board or removing it if something does then you have 3xInquisition of Kozilek tossed in to disrupt your opponents hand with no synergy around making your opponent discard. Just feel out of place.
Anyways, good luck and happy brewing!

Thanks, I think those additions would be good. I had thought about Changeling Outcast before and I think I might add back in. I don't know why I hadn't seen Gift of Fangs before but I think having Earthbind as a sideboard would be good. My friends play with a lot of flying creatures.

Changeling Outcast might be a fun card that counts as a knight and can get you some guaranteed damage each turn for your triggers. On the tribal note, you have a bunch of vampires(including, if you so choose, the aforementioned card) and Gift of Fangs is a fun card that can double as a permanent buff for one of your units or as removal on an enemy card.

Soltari Champion and Soltari Visionary are pretty solid Shadows to throw into an evasive deck, Thalakos Deceiver and Thalakos Dreamsower are both utility creatures that have Shadow, and Dauthi Voidwalker is unheard of value for BB. You might care enough about an unblockable pirate for Changeling Outcast to be interesting.
Strixhaven Stadium is pretty good if you expect to sneak in more often than opponents can hit you, synergizes well with stuff like War Tax or Propaganda/Ghostly Prison type stuff. You could even throw in a source of lifelink, Whip of Erebos is low to the ground, Noble Purpose stacks with Lifelink and True Conviction also doubles your power while offering lifelink. I find I love having lifelink on my evasives, as they tend to be smaller. Another payoff might be Grim Hireling, which can generate plenty of treasure, which can either help with your high levels of card draw or remove things if you're desperate. Even obvious Smothering Tithe is a pretty solid card in a deck with this much card draw built in, but it is annoying to play/play against.
Must be nice playing games with this much access to card advantage!

These are all great ideas! Especially the Maskwood Nexus and Altar of Dementia. Changeling Outcast would also work very well, at least one of those would be a good idea. Thank you for the suggestions, these were very helpful!

It's not a fast card, but would Maskwood Nexus be helpful? It makes all your creatures into everything, which synergizes with your diverse payoffs. I think it goes infinite with Rotlung and a free sac outlet like Viscera Seer or Carrion Feeder, or if you're budget is higher Altar of Dementia, because the Zombie token will also be a Cleric with Nexus out. No idea if that's remotely up your ally, but it exists.
