Urza, Lord High Artificer could work well considering Unc can turn creatures into artifacts. He pops off with Pemmin's Aura and Freed from the Real.

Other cards that might be worth considering: Pili-Pala, Grand Architect, Illusionist's Bracers, Clock of Omens, Gush, Isochron Scepter, Drake Haven, Opposition, Wharf Infiltrator, Ashnod's Altar, Teferi's Ageless Insight

Ninjas are awesome: one of my EDH decks is a Yuriko deck that makes people "very happy". And it's a good start that you have! Some thoughts about things to add that vary in budget-friendliness:

You can link cards by enclosing the name in double brackets. I'll do so here so that people can get an idea of the colors/strategies that these cards support.

Scalding Tarn

Valakut Awakening  Flip

Takenuma, Abandoned Mire

Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip

Tekuthal, Inquiry Dominus

Preston, the Vanisher

Leyline Binding

Isochron Scepter

Looking at this list I'd say the most cards you are going to fit into a single deck would be some sort of Nekusar force feed deck with Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter in it. This would let you run Scalding Tarn, Valakut Awakening  Flip, Takenuma, Abandoned Mire, Tergrid, God of Fright  Flip, and Isochron Scepter. It definitely wouldn't be the most powerful Nekusar deck, but it would let you run the maximum number of the listed cards IMO.

The Pain side of Pain / Suffering could not be placed under Isochron Scepter, not even under the old rules. It's not a mana cost issue though, the Scepter doesn't take Sorcery cards. Stand, from Stand / Deliver would have worked.

enpc I like the Isochron Scepter combo here. Don't know why I didn't think of it. I have a Scepter available, too.

Whir of Invention was a maybe; I was unsure of the triple . It's getting a trial run.

The other three are good untappers. Instill Energy looks like the strongest of the three in a vacuum, and it will find a place in here. I'll slot the other two in for now, but I'm a little worried this will be too much redundancy using up card slots.

Since you're running a bunch of mana dorks, adding Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal could be strong here. All you need to do is hit 2 mana worth of dorks/rocks and you're good from there.

Whir of Invention is another card worth adding since right now all your combos use an artifact.

I would also look to add stuff like Kiora's Follower - while it doesn't work inside of combo, outside of that it's still a mana dork and an untapper.

Instill Energy and Nature's Chosen are both interesting card here, again they aren't combo cards but let you generate a lot of value with your commander.

CaveBoy I did not consider Isochron Scepter because artifact removal is rampant and the set up would take too long to be very useful against faster decks. As for Temporal Extortion, I had thought about it at one point but eventually decided against it because of speed and cost.
