Hey @Snake57! It's great to hear from ya!
I haven't been able to play too many games with the new cards that I'm testing, but this is what I think so far:
Darkwater Catacombs is great for paying for Yuriko's ninjutsu, but is awkward for casting 1 mana spells. Agadeem's Awakening Flip is an improvement and it plays very similarly to Sea Gate Restoration Flip.
Walker of Secret Ways was helpful because I got to look at my opponents' hands and adjust my plan accordingly. But it got easily shut down by Yawgmoth, Thran Physician and Engineered Plague . In these scenarios, Azra Smokeshaper would have been practically unaffected, so I'm unsure about this swap.
Commandeer countered a game-winning Victimize when I was tapped out, and hits hard when you flip it with Yuriko. Exiling 2 blue cards is a steep cost, but it's more helpful than Commit / Memory , which is pretty difficult to cast.
As expected, Snuff Out is a lot less powerful in my playgroup since black is our most played colour. Even so, it can usually hit one creature on the battlefield, which clears the way for Yuriko. The card that I had to cut to make room was Cover of Darkness . It tends to be a win-more card, in that it's good when my board state is good, but bad when my board state is bad. So far I think that snuff out deserves the spot more.
There are also a few cards that I plan on trying out later on:
Gingerbrute is a card I've always been on the fence about, but I've heard nothing but good things from other Yuriko players.
Merfolk Windrobber is a classic 1/1 flyer for 1, and can replace itself in the late game.
Street Wraith deals 5 damage when you flip it with Yuriko, then you can immediately cycle it for another card that's more useful. It fills the graveyard for delve spells like Temporal Trespass and Dig Through Time too.
Gitaxian Probe is a cedh staple, and banned in both modern and legacy. For only 2 life, you get to look at your opponents hand and it replaces itself. It also fills the graveyard for delve spells.
Dismember is a 1 mana removal spell that kills most creatures, and hits for 3 damage with Yuriko.
I hope that all made sense! Let me know if you have any questions, or if you've found any hidden gems for Yuriko!

JaytheGreat I'm looking for an artifact with the Food subtype, inspired by the food you most recently ate. It doesn't have to be realistic; check out Gingerbrute or Golden Egg for (fairy tale) examples. Does that help?

On the other note, I kinda like this Food-centric Commander. Card advantage on a stick, and recurring value, not to mention the wicked low CMC. I'd play it in a heartbeat.
Whenever a player creates a Food Token, each player creates a Food Token instead.
Sacrifice 2 Food: Create an number of 1/1 Black Rat Tokens equal to the number of Food Tokens created this turn. Any player may activate this ability.
"The village at first was fearful of the giant, but relishes the feasts he holds regularly. As it happens, he is a very messy eater."
Ok, so this may sound weird, but it can be a group hug card. I like it though, it provides a solid upside for the cost, and gives you access to other routes of play within the new to be archetype.
So, for the Next Challenge, either create another Food Commander, or a synergistic card to interact with Food!

It's a Gingerbrute variation

It looks like your main goal is to stick a creature and then buff it as much as possible with +1/+1 counters. To improve the strength and consistency of the deck, I recommend cutting anything that isn't working towards that end (unless it's very efficient.) I'd identify those cards as Druid's Deliverance, Sundering Growth, Bountiful Harvest, Bump in the Night, Lair Delve, Blood Reckoning, Tablet of the Guilds, Primal Clay, Trestle Troll, and maybe Phylactery Lich (depending on how many artifacts you end up running in the end.) I'd also suggest swapping out Intimidation to stay modern legal, possibly with something like Bellowing Tanglewurm if you really really want the evasion. Your strongest cards that I'd want additional copies of are Abrupt Decay (budget permitting), Ring of Xathrid, Undying Evil, Slitherhead, and Death's Presence (assuming your meta is slow enough to run it.) It also looks like Tormented Soul is a critical piece that benefits the most from growing big, so having redundancy for it seems like a good idea. Changeling Outcast, Gingerbrute, and Silhana Ledgewalker could all be fine targets. For +1/+1 synergy, you have scavenge staples like Varolz, the Scar-Striped, Corpsejack Menace, and Lotleth Troll along with more general options like Polukranos, Unchained, Winding Constrictor, Hardened Scales, Hydra's Growth, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Scavenging Ooze (which is particularly good in a sideboard), Drana, Liberator of Malakir, Hunger of the Howlpack, Forced Adaptation, and Llanowar Reborn. Finally, some cards I've had success with in graveyard-focused decks include Tragic Slip, Satyr Wayfinder, Grisly Salvage, Splinterfright, and Fauna Shaman. Let me know if you have any questions and good luck with your build!

Oh, I almost forgot. You have to find a spot for Gingerbrute. He gains you 3 life per turn and get's in there pretty much all the time when attacking.
Ok, I'll leave you alone now =]

Väinämöinen, Caller to the Dephths
Legendary Creature - Human Shaman
Heroic - Whenever you cast a spell that targets ~, reveal cards from the top of your library until you reveal a card that is a kraken, leviathan, serpent, or octopus. Put that creature onto the battlefield, then exile the other reveiled cards.
, : Until end of turn, whenever an opponent is dealt combat damage, return target card that was exiled with ~ to your hand.
I'd like to see a Gingerbrute that has become legendary and can be a commander. Bonus points if you make it a reference to the Eldraine Trailer.
