Nice, multimedia! That has me off to a good start.

UPDATED ADDITIONS:

Brainstorm

Sol Ring

Command Tower

Triton Shorestalker

Treasure Cruise

Consign / Oblivion

Triton Shorestalker

Krydle of Baldur's Gate

Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar

Bolas's Citadel - I just like playing this card when I have the mana to pull it off.

Overwhelmed Apprentice - A placeholder until I can get a few more powerful scry cards.

UPDATED CUTS:

Temple of the Dragon Queen - I honestly don't know how this even got in here, but "Bye, Dragonicia!" along with 2 basic swamps and 1 island.

Hoard Robber

Gravedigger

Bone to Ash -- Wasn't suggested, but I honestly never use it when it's in my hand anyway...

Zombie Ogre

Scion of the Swarm

Still on the lookout for some others, especially Fallen Shinobi cause I want a set for my Modern Ninja deck as well!

multimedia on Processing Throat Pain with Yuriko

Hey, you're welcome.

The first cuts to consider are Temple of the Dragon Queen and 3 other lands since 40 lands is too much. In place of some lands add some lower CMC scry/draw such as Brainstorm, Augury Owl, Preordain, Telling Time. The idea is these cards can replace lands because they're one or two mana, easy to cast, that can help to find lands if you need a land, find/draw other cards or most important help to setup the top card of your library for Yuriko. The scry 3 of Augury Owl is nice since it's a flying creature to return to your hand to cast again.

The more lower CMC creatures who have evasion or can give itself or another creature evasion you add the better the creature base will be for Yuriko. There's a large amount of budget creatures to choose from therefore there's really no reason to play many nonNinja creatures who don't have evasion.

Some other cards to consider cutting:


A more complex budget interaction is Cunning Evasion or Grazilaxx, Illithid Scholar with Yuriko and other Ninjutsu. You keep bouncing Ninjas who are blocked and then Ninjutsu them while still in combat. This is helpful with Yuriko and other Ninjas because they will not always have evasion. Any Ninja who has a trigger when it does combat damage to a player such as Ingenious Infiltrator benefits from being able to be blocked then bounced and then Ninjutsu while still in combat, before combat damage step.

Some other cards to consider adding later on that are a little more expensive price, but still budget:

  • Arcane Adaptation: this makes all creatures you control a Ninja as well as a Rogue. This is a powerful effect because then each creature who does combat damage to an opponent triggers Yuriko.
  • Varragoth, Bloodsky Sire: it's a Rogue who's boast ability can tutor for any card and put that card on top of your library. You can activate boast at any time after Varragoth is declared as an attacker thus you can set up the top card of your library in combat before Varragoth dies if that is what is going to happen and before you do combat damage to a player.
  • Fallen Shinobi: Ninja with a potentially busted trigger when you do combat damage to an opponent, but the power of it depends on what cards you exile from the top of your opponent's library.

Hoarding Ogre probably isn't good enough to make the cut but it may be worth noting. Same with Hoard Robber

GrimlockVIII on Dungeon of Undeath (Grixis treasure/d20)

Maybe Hoard Robber + Thieves' Tools or some other way to make him evasive can also give you a treasure-based value engine.
