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:
Chromatic Orrery (high cmc and provides a lot of mana)
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)
Scroll Rack (spendy but so good)
Trickery Charm (does multiple things you want)
Grozoth (requires you to build around it to be worthwhile but can be good)

Housegheist I do think Flood of Tears is probably better than Crush of Tentacles, but I didn't suggest cutting Crush of Tentacles because it fits with the theme, but if you are okay sacrificing a bit of flavour and synergy, then flood of tears is probably better than crush of tentacles. Also I do agree that it is nice to have some versatility in Khalni Ambush Flip, especially with the landfall subtheme, so it isn't really a necessary cut.

Thank you for your suggestions. On the original list there are mostly cards which i already own.
Nevertheless i agree to Pongify > Jwari Disruption Flip and Thaumatic Compass Flip > Maze of Ith. What i like about the compass is that you can tutor for lands and gain the same effect as Ith AND tap for mana if your need to. The latter is definitely a worthy swap.
Don‘t you think Flood of Tears would be a more efficient swap for crush of tentacles?

I personally prefer Flood of Tears over Devastation Tide as well as Thaumatic Compass Flip over Maze of Ith, but those are just preferences and you don't need to add them. Also Jwari Disruption Flip and Khalni Ambush Flip could be replaced with more efficient removal like Pongify and Rapid Hybridization.

Here is the more combo like version. I will say it's a pretty rough draft, but this is just to give you an idea of what I was considering . You'll want to customize it to best suit you and your meta.
4x Pentad Prism
4x Izzet Signet
4x Steam Vents

An interesting combo that I ran across at one point involves these two cards: Flood of Tears and Omniscience. It's quite elegant, really. You play flood of tears after playing four permanents (for instance, a ramp package of Arboreal Grazer and Gift of Paradise to play Flood of Tears earlier). You wipe the board, then Flood of Tears allows you to Place a permanent onto the board, which of course is going to be Omniscience. Then you play out your entire hand while your opponent's board has nothing. Kudos to you if you happen to have a Song of Creation in your hand as well.

DemonDragonJ - I think there are a few reasons why they switched from Allies to the Party mechanic. 1) The war with the eldrazi is over so there is no longer a need for an alliance among the denizens of Zendikar, 2) WoTC is releasing some sort of D&D-MTG crossover set next year so my guess is they are laying groundwork for that set, and 3) the set was supposed to return to Zendikar's original exploration roots, so having a party of adventurers fits thematically (in my opinion).
Has anyone seen the new Ashaya (or I guess the only non-token version of Ashaya)? Holy crap! She is going into each and every one of my green EDH decks. Now I can just laugh when someone tries to wipe my board with a blue spell. Let's take a moment to consider what she stops: River's Rebuke, Flood of Tears, Devastation Tide, Crush of Tentacles, mother-freaking-Cyclonic Rift, and most blue single target bounce spells.
