Great question! Sakashima of a Thousand Faces will go into the deck eventually, and it will probably replace Okiba-Gang Shinobi. While the discard is helpful in corner cases where someone has an empty hand and tutors something, most of the time it's just another ninja, and discard is a mechanic which annoys players and isn't otherwise supported here so as to make it good.
I oftentimes tutor Counterspell with Dimir Infiltrator when I think someone is going to try to combo or stop me, which has been a good trick, so I do generally like it, though I would probably replace it with Foil if I decide to since we usually don't mind the downsides in this deck and it's a cheap card. Mana Severance does seem like a useful trick though, so I will think about that! I think a misnomer about the deck is that you need to manipulate the top deck a lot so that you can set up the kill. Really you just need to swing a lot of un-blockable ninjas sideways, maybe with an extra copy of Yuriko, and hope it's enough. Lands are what really kill you when you are going for the kill, so that does seem like a good card and I will seriously consider it!

Delightful. If you had a Sakashima of a Thousand Faces, what would you cut for it?
Also: The lone Counterspell kind of sticks out. Yeah, there is Commit / Memory but you will probably not counter something for 4CMC. So that solitary counter doesn't do much exept two meager damage off the top. Force of Will would be perfect in that spot but it is probably way out of budget (Force of Negation too, even though it gets reprinted in Double Masters 2022). So I would propose cutting that counterspell entirely and replace it with something fun. A card you could replace it with that gets surprisingly little attention and is heavily underplayed in Yuriko is Mana Severance. This card is amazing in any Yuriko late game. Right now you average CMC with lands is around 2.2 or so. Without lands it's 3.38, that's a 50 % damage increase for your Yuriko triggers (without top deck manipulation) and you will dig through your library much faster. You should be careful with it, obviously. If you suspect an Armageddon this will probably be one of the cards you'd discard.

Firstly I will immediately say this, I know this isn't in any way shape or form a cEDH deck, this is a pure s**ts and giggles deck, so don't worry about running more counters and such, it's a deck that if it works, it works if it don't, better luck next time.
Secondly with the way the London Mulligan operates, you can now potentially go really aggressive and Mulligan for either Thassa's Oracle or Mana Severance into your starting hand and have a great opportunity to kick your combo into full gear quite regularly on turn 6.
Keep playing the Jank

Is there a reason you're not running a red/blue commander for the deck? I get that Birgi is good for the combo, but adding blue gives you more artifact tutoring, countermagic/some removal, Thousand-Year Storm and Mana Severance which helps once you've got Thrumming Stone out.

I love the idea of this one so much! Not only does this deck is very optimized ang goal-oriented, it utilizes otherwise underused pieces like Uyo, Silent Prophet , and it's a Kamigawa commander!

My favorite and first commander was Kaho, Minamo Historian with her ability you can fetch a flicker spell so she can re enter the battlefield to get more spells and there are other spells that let you shuffle said spells back into your library. Obviously you are restricted to instants with her but with the right set up you can loop your entire deck indefinitely. Some fun budget options are to use Mystical Tutor to fetch Mana Severance to empty your library and if you are running 95 islands you can win by casting Thassa's Oracle .

Every since I saw this deck years ago, I've always wanted to make a version of it in my favorite format, modern, but Mana Severance wasn't legal. This the flip cards are a great way to get around that, and I never thought of using Sword of the Meek + Salvage Titan + Vengevine to supply that extra damage. +1
