Ok so I didn't check to see if any of these were in the deck already but... here's my list of suggestions!

It's a lot of cards so...

Again some of these may be cut worthy but off the cuff this is what I came up with. Also I didn't include any ninjas... I figure they are easy enough to find

Wow, yeah, I guess I'm mistaken. I was remembering Darksteel Pendant for being Scry without the keywording, which was printed in the same block, though not the same set as the cards you linked.

Alright, colorless on a budget. Here we go.

The lands are fine. Looks like basic Wastes really need a reprint.

I'm counting 19 mana artifacts. If I cut those above a mana value of 3, that's still 16. Plus a few big mana Edlrazis on top. Mana-wise you definitely won't have issues, though we can optimize the selection a little. Manakin and Foundry Inspector have priority over Kozilek's Channeler, Walking Atlas and Warden of Geometries. Sisay's Ring is a second copy of Ur-Golem's Eye.

You have Myr Retriever and artifact synergy cards in there. Consider adding Scrap Trawler too. If you want to get infinite mana, Spawning Pit and Thermal Navigator can make it possible. Might cause some salt on casual tables though. Workshop Assistant is pretty much the same card as Junk Diver and fits in there as well.

Cards that I would cut are: Kozilek's Pathfinder, Ulamog's Despoiler, Ruin Processor, Desolation Twin, Deathless Behemoth

Fun budget cards to consider: Nevinyrral's Disk , Mimic Vat , Duplicant , Transmogrifying Wand , Chaos Wand , Tormod's Crypt or Scrabbling Claws , Sunset Pyramid , Darksteel Pendant , Ichor Wellspring , Shimmer Myr , Crashing Drawbridge .

Aside from those, I imagine this deck wants Mind's Eye a lot, but it's not a cheap card.

@ Omniscience_is_life I understand, as I also struggle with cutting! And in a lot of ways it also depends on what you find yourself playing against. As a notorious recovering durdle player, I've found it helpful to evaluate a card by means of if it's proactive in doing what your decks wants to do or winning. For example, in your current list, Sanctum Spirit I've found to be underwhelming as well as Darksteel Pendant . But it could work for you if you find yourself playing against a lot of aggressive decks or sweepers! Gift of Immortality Works towards the same goal of sweeper protection, and opens up additional toolbox plays with your other spirits, so that would be my suggestion!

Also, minor land suggestion! Drownyard Temple and High Market . Drownyard Temple is a minor consistent way of ramping after your pony smashes lands, and is another card that is ok chucking to the bin if someone wheels. High Market also opens up a cheeky Yosei, the Morning Star lock when paired with Emeria, The Sky Ruin to lock down a single opponent, which seems to be in the salty spirit of the deck!

Really enjoy this deck. The Dimir House Guard have been much better than I thought they would. Darksteel Pendant as well.

The deck is looking pretty good. I like the creature base you have chosen, there are a couple questionable creatures though. Cloudreader Sphinx seems kind of bad in this deck. If you just want a flying scryer, perhaps Sphinx of Foresight, Prognostic Sphinx, Stormwing Entity, or Siani, Eye of the Storm.

Passwall Adept is just not good enough. its too much of a resource drain. Opt is not helpful in this deck since you immediately draw the card after scrying. Cunning Evasion wont do much good I am thinking since most of your creatures wont be blocked anyway.

In my opinion, you need a few less low CMC cards and a few more high CMC that you can use to get Yuriko damage in. For cuts, I would start by looking at any creatures that cost CMC 2/3 that dont provide value other than being unblockable (Invisible Stalker, Vault Skirge (love that card btw). I would then look at replacing sorceries with instants where possible. Darksteel Pendant and Crystal Ball are not good enough in my opinion and are too much of a resource investment unless there is some sort of artifact strategy I am missing. Dimir Keyrune provides interesting utility but is inefficient. Consider Arcane Signet instead or perhaps even Dark Ritual. Thran Dynamo is fairly efficient for cost to mana provided but it seems most of your mana needs are for color. Key to the City is for yuriko after she is out I assume.. I would probably run Aqueous Form instead because it has a scry effect on attack which is pretty desirable.

Here are some cards to consider in not much particular order:

Zhalfirin Void

Moonring Island

Chromatic Orrery (high cmc and provides a lot of mana)

Mission Briefing (can add card to graveyard for delve and recast Brainstorm which is arguably one of the best cards in the deck)

Condescend

Chain of Vapor (way to return a card to hand as well as an opponents card or cards)

Archaeomancer (can get brainstorm back and can be returned to hand with ninjitsu potentially)

Harsh Scrutiny

Shrieking Drake

Archetype of Imagination

Flood of Tears (this is a pet card of mine. You can return a bunch of cheap creatures and then put out something big like a Chromatic Orrery)

Lim-Dul's Vault

Scroll Rack (spendy but so good)

Soothsaying

Spire Owl

Diabolic Vision

Index

Spy Network

Trickery Charm (does multiple things you want)

Beseech the Queen

The Magic Mirror

The Cauldron of Eternity

Deep-Sea Kraken

Avatar of Woe

Void Beckoner

Dead Drop

Tombstalker

Curse of the Cabal

Connive / Concoct

Grozoth (requires you to build around it to be worthwhile but can be good)

Scion of Darkness

Treasure Cruise

Baral's Expertise

Unlife on Kodama of the East Tree/ Eligeth Crossroads Augur

Crystal Ball, Darksteel Pendant, Hedron Alignment, Oracle's Insight, Thrasios, Triton Hero, there are some more but repeatable scry effects that turn into draw seem great for this deck.
