A soul sister deck would give your friend a bit of trouble. If he's using Krovikan Mist , he's got a pretty heavy creature list. Could use more info on his playstyle. I wager he's going straight up aggro using dudes like Phantasmal Bear , Vapor Snag and Phantasmal Dragon but I could also see him doing something more control-like with Riftwing Cloudskate , Draining Whelk , meloku the cloud mirror and Counterspell since it sounds like he's pretty annoying.

A mid-range life gaining deck sounds like it will consistently give you more turns to play bigger threats and overall be winning more games. Blue has a lot of problem solving cards so I wouldn't rely on a single card to win you a game, especially if it can get countered. I'd lean more to redundancy and playing relevant cards.

Strategies that use creatures like Soul Warden , Thragtusk or making a deck around that new card Bishop of Wings since angels can block flyers or Suture Priest or Gray Merchant of Asphodel

I love Brago. He’s fun. Once you get bouncing he gets crazy value. I do have some suggestions based off my experience with him.

I think card advantage is always great, so I love Mystic Remora , Cloudform , and Lightform . With infinite bounce combos, the form enchantments play your whole deck. Well, if you do decide to run more card advantage, you’ll need more mana rocks to keep up.

Planeswalkers are great, but 2 stand out. Venser, the Sojourner does everything you need it to do and Tezzeret the Seeker gets your best cards.

Here are 2 answer-all creatures: Riftwing Cloudskate and Cavalier of Dawn . You can bounce the resulting token, too. I love Angel of Serenity the most because it bounces three things and can hurt graveyard strategies.

If you do that flicker trick with Riftwing Cloudskate , you can return the opponent's entire battlefield to their hand.

That’s probably because blue doesn’t really destroy things.

Riftwing Cloudskate and Venser, Shaper Savant probably fit the bill though.

+1 Awesome deck for sure!

I feel like with the Ninjitsu you may want to be able to return more of your Ninjas to your hand with their abilities. In conjunction with Crystal Shard I recommend Echoing Truth + Isochron Scepter this is awesome to bounce more things back, but potentially even better is if your opps. create a lot of pesky tokens, you can clear an entire board of 2/2 zombies etc. with this lil combo. I would also suggest Capsize as well.

Riftwing Cloudskate and maybe Temporal Adept

You should definitely play Eternal Witness to recur your Ghostly Flicker every time you use it. I think Riftwing Cloudskate might also be useful for you, you can suspend it early and it comes online in time for you to flicker it. Maybe Wood Elves would be better than Farseek in the context of your deck.
Some more ideas: Displace is almost identical to Ghostly Flicker in case you want more of this effect. Merchant Scroll and Eldritch Evolution can help you find the cards you need.

Cool deck, the name made me laugh!

I wasn't aware of the combo with Strionic Resonator and Sol Ring before. It is a really nice one!

So here are some suggestions:
