1: There are many weaker card choices. Not having access (or getting over time) is obviously apart of the collection-building aspect of the game; but your decks should avoid the weak cards that are not on theme. Focus on including cards that actively help or are benefited by your theme of heavy ramp with a secondary set of heavy draw. Cards such as Fblthp, Gurmag Drowner, Silumgar Sorcerer, and jace, are primary examples.
2: Finding cards that fit both themes: draw and ramp, is relatively easy and will increase the adaptability and efficiency of the deck. Commander's Sphere is the obvious example currently in the deck. Potential additions (that you should be able to more easily acquire) include Edge of Autumn, Explore, Krosan Tusker, and Seer's Sundial. Harder to get pieces would be Kiora, the Crashing Wave, Aesi, Tyrant of Gyre Strait.
4: Having lots of mana is only useful it's spent casting scary game-winning threats. Threats you may not be aware of that might be fun for you to playtest: Soramaro, First to Dream, Prime Speaker Zegana, and Clockwork Dragon. The first and last cards specifically benefit from the amount of colorless mana you will generate with your general.

I prefer having a card in the commandzone that just wins with infinite mana, making combofinishes easier, instead of a value engine that only benefits a small portion of the deck. Also, Yarok doesn't really add to the control potential of for example Frilled Mystic or Silumgar Sorcerer at all, first of which is a soft lock with enough cyclers. Tasigur brings those back and if i have enough cyclers, i don't even care what i get, as anything can be used as a counterspell.
I stumbled across the Escape Protocol-Lock in standard, played it, and think all it needs is a reliable card advantage engine like the one Tasigur provides to keep going. The one thing that should never happen to this deck is to run out of cards in hand - therefore, Tasigur is my pick.

Hello swarm intelligence,
I am working on a deck idea i had some weeks ago, a sultai deck using ETBs to control the board using cards like Sidisi's Faithful, Silumgar Sorcerer, Frilled Mystic, Acolyte of Affliction or Reclamation Sage together with Escape Protocol in a cycling shell.
The commander of the deck will be Tasigur, the Golden Fang.
As i have many different ETBs and i want to get as many of them as possible onto the battlefield, i want to include Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, also to be able to use them all at instant speed.
I know this deck will not be played at a competitive level, but i would like to include 1-2 combo lines with Yisan. As i have Tasigur, the Golden Fang, any infitite coloured mana combo would suffice (at least for a win at sorcery speed), one thought of mine was Peregrine Drake and Deadeye Navigator, but i hope you have some other and unique ideas i could include. Preferably, if possible, without any effect targeting a card in a graveyard, because i would like to run Ground Seal as a control piece.
I hope you can breathe some life into this idea of mine, be as creative and convoluted as you please, i am looking forward to it!

Thanks for the suggestions!
I like the Singers. I put in the Sailors because of the low-cost flash trigger for Slitherwisp and a mana sink for late game than can help trigger the Vandal.
I did have Greatsharks at first, but then found the Silumgar Sorcerer for a lower cmc creature counter.
Petty Theft on the Brazen Borrower is much more efficient than the Shoreshark for bouncing because it can hit more targets and doesn't need a mutate target.
Umori would just take up space in the main deck--that's the whole point of companion, right, to have guaranteed access to it? I originally had some non-creature flash cards in my initial deck idea, but when I saw that I was at a high creature count, I just went all creatures in the main board to have Umori companion. He's just a bonus, really, so there'd be no reason to have him clog up the deck.
I've been struggling with the right amount of land with this one. If I swap in Greatsharks (which, thinking about it, I'd probably do Dirge Bat instead) then I'd for sure keep the land count as-is. Or, I could lean into the lower cost, cut some higher costs that I'm not supper excited about (Siren, Obstrutionist), go lower cmc with Trickster and Singers, then drop 1-2 land. With the little playtesting/goldfishing I've done, hitting the first three lands on time is critical so I don't want to cut too much land.

Hatred really good with yuriko to one shot someone with commander damage. really good against life gain decks
Coastal Breach good board wipe assuming you're in a 4 player game. it's cmc is 7 but only cost you 4 mana to play also resets your ninja's and etb creatures
Equilibrium is used to bounce your ninjas with the unblockable dudes since ninja's are kinda trash by themselves if they can't get through or you can bounce your opponents dudes too if you wanna play the tempo game
Mardu Shadowspear currently placeholder but in a pinch is a good creature to throw out with haste to quickly activate ninjitsu. decent floor but low ceiling on this card. you can probably find better but the haste effect is decent in my playgroup
Traveler's Amulet mainly used in the same capacity as fetch lands. helps thin the deck from lands so you're less likely to whiff with yuriko triggers
Silumgar Sorcerer with yuriko out you can flash this guy in to counter a creature spell by saccing yuriko and he's a flyer aswell so you can ninjitsu yuriko back in with him. rinse and repeat. cute combo but only really decent in a meta heavy with creatures. easily cuttable card.
