Asmoeus here are some suggestions around what I would do to improve the deck on a budget

Lands

Artifact

  • Look decent. Gilded Lotus does have a high mana cost so would keep an eye on how often you cast it.

Sorcery

  • Remove Creative Technique (with your lower mana curve odds of you revealing something really good is low) > Add Arcane Denial as a good, cheap counter spell
  • Remove Fiery Encore (expensive and requires you to discard a high mana cost card to deal decent damage) > Add Solve the Equation (Tutor for the spell you need)

Creature

  • Remove Charmbreaker Devils (returning spell at random will not often get what you need, and does not have a way to get around blockers) > Add Runaway Steam-Kin (Will help you cast more spells and give you mana)

Other Considerations

Skyclave Apparition Hard removal

Esper Sentinel White card draw, supports artifact themes

Solitude? It's a second Sword to plowshare.

Emiel the Blessed? It's flicker support?

Murktide Regent

Sakashima of a Thousand Faces? I feel like we have a lot of legendaries. Could be fun?

Demilich?

Solve the Equation? Slow tutor

Tasha's Hideous Laughter? How much does this mill in power cube

Sedgemoor Witch

Opposition Agent? Do we have enough tutors?

Grief? More discard. do we have flicker support?

Dauthi Voidwalker? How much discard do we have? How much kill spells do we have?

Archon of Cruelty? Does this compete with other reanimator targets using the good reanimator spells?

Ragavan, Nimble Pilferer

Port Razer?Extra attacks, but does aggro need this? Is it fast enough?

Expressive Iteration

Prismari Command? It can do so much! but its not great at what it does.

Omnath, Locus of Creation? 4c is a hard sell. also flicker support? also landfall support?

Kaldra Compleat?

Sword of Hearth and Home? Flicker support, but the prots aren't too strong

Urza's Saga Busted

Pathways?

Hey, you're welcome.

You could cut Drove of Elves for Sabertooth and cut Expel from Orazca for Staff. Some other upgrades to consider are tutors to get the more impactful Elves quicker.

Some tutors could replace some of the less impactful draw spells and ramp such as Bounty of Skemfar , Chart a Course , Harmonize , Sakura-Tribe Elder , Llanowar Visionary .

Hey, well done for being new with your $400 version of Twincasters.

Some cards to consider adding and then I'll explain these suggestions:

Tireless Provisioner is a good ramp source with repeatable Treasures. Whir of Invention is powerful to tutor for Helm of the Host at instant speed, puts it onto the battlefield and Clues/Treasures can help to pay for the colorless part of it's cost with improvise. Solve the Equation can tutor for Whirl.

Biovisionary is a creature you want to make a token of because having four Bois can be a win condition at your end step. Bio is really good with Mystic Reflection and Echoing Equation . Risen Reef is another creature you want to make a token of because each token triggers itself as well as all other copies of Risen. Junk Winder can shut down all your opponents nonland permanents, any tokens help to reduce it's mana cost to as low as two mana and if you get to make a token copy of it then the disruption gets crazy.


Here's some suggestions of cuts to consider to add the good cards in the maybeboard.

Good luck with your deck.

Thanks so much for you kind words betomindslav! Cover of Darkness used to be in my Scion of the Ur-Dragon deck, but it was too flavorful not to go in ninjas. Solve the Equation is a great tutor that I've slowly been slipping into most of my blue decks. I'm surprised more people aren't running it. I might slide it in here if I can. Bolas's Citadel is mostly a pet card here- it's certainly not essential to ninjas or anything. That being said, it does work well at what ot does, and I have had it work out where I can abuse the heck out of it the turn its played and put a bunch of ninjas on the board so that I could win by swinging with then the following turn. Its a fun card that always makes memories for better or worse, but is by no means essential to the deck.

+1 to the deck here and for your thoughtful primer(s). I'm definitely inspired to build my own pile. Cover of Darkness is such a great include. You mentioned Solve the Equation in your primer above (a card that I run with Mizzix), which I also believe to be a very fine, perhaps under-the-radar tutor. Just wondering if you could elaborate on your lines with Bolas's Citadel ? Is it more of a finisher if you've run out of gas? Cheers from Toronto!
