Great suggestion Grind!! And I'm absolutely sure it would work fine in this deck! But just think a card like Soothsaying is way better. Or maybe it's just my taste and that I like the card more. #petcards

Cruel Entertainment and Worst Fears might be something to look at. High CMC, would be castable and has some flavor with misdirection/illusions and whatnot. Soothsaying is another incredibly synergistic card for Yuriko.

Yuriko is such a cool commander. Hopefully the alleged return to Kamigawa set has some cool ninjas to add!

The reason for the original Soothsaying to have an ability - costly might I add - to shuffle the library is because its peek ability cannot throw away what is on top of your library. It feels out of place on a card that has that ability included already by Scrying instead of merely looking and rearranging. Why do you need the ability to shuffle? Because you tucked away something you now want a chance to get? That seems like it's just covering Scry's only "weakness".

I would remove the ability to shuffle, maybe make it into a 2/3 and call it a day.

personally i like to run Mindmoil with Scroll Rack stashing combo peaces into the rack, but if the options are Crystal Ball vs Soothsaying i would choose Soothsaying and then put it on my to be cut list for a Sensei's Divining Top

I would run Soothsaying if there are three or more cards you want to bottom consistently. Or if the number of cards you want to bottom is very inconsistent then soothsaying is also preferred.

Otherwise if on average your only need to bottom one to two cards Crystal Ball has the better mana rate.

I have a copy of Scroll Rack in my Nekusar, the Mindrazer EDH deck, because I believe that it is a very awesome card, but, without a way to put cards from the top of my library elsewhere in it, I will simply draw again cards that I put away with the rack, a task that I am currently using Crystal Ball to perform, but I wonder if Soothsaying would be better for that task. Currently, with the ball, I can optimally exchange a maximum of two cards in my hand for cards from the top my library, but, with Soothsaying, I can exchange my entire hand, provided that I can afford the cost of the enchantment's first ability. Therefore, I am contemplating replacing the artifact with the enchantment, but I wish to ask for everyone's opinion before I make any decisions on this matter.

What does everyone else say about this? Should I replace Crystal Ball with Soothsaying, or keep the current card?

I feel that Soothsaying is an underrated card that could be quite useful in the proper deck, but 5 mana to shuffle one's library is a very high price to pay, in my mind, so have made a new version of that card, one that is also a creature, simply to give it additional utility, as seen, below.

I was contemplating making this card cost only , as that is the cost of Triskaidekaphile from the upcoming Innistrad: Midnight Hunt, but I feel that that is too low of a cost for a creature with so much utility. I know that scrying is better than the ability of Soothsaying, but I feel that, with how much more powerful cards have become, overall, in recent years, that is an acceptable instance of power creep. I do believe that 4 mana is still too high of a cost for shuffling one's library, and that 3 mana is perfectly acceptable, but, when combined with the first ability, it would be too powerful for only 3 mana, so I made it cost 4, instead.

What does everyone else say about this card? Do you like it?

seshiro_of_the_orochi, Soothsaying is a very awesome card, so I shall keep it in mind, and I may even start a thread to discuss its usefulness in EDH.
