Good artifact-based card draw to note:

Skullclamp - the gold-standard for token decks. Legendary power. If you have too many anthems it drops off greatly in power.

Infiltration Lens - it's not awful, but I prefer Rogue's Gloves and Mask of Memory.

Courier's Capsule - much better with heavy graveyard recursion

Idol of Oblivion - the draw is free, which is nice. Very strong for two mana

Tome of Legends - should be excellent since your commander can usually attack with impunity. Bummer it's getting more expensive. It's a good card though so it's unsurprising.

Midnight Clock - this card is fantastic. Secret is getting out so if you're on the fence definitely buy some for your collection. The reprint dropped its price. Also, Eldraine card for the flavor.

Mysterious Tome  Flip - not bad, but we can probably do better

Slate of Ancestry - repeatable, but sometimes unreliable--like if you need to recover from a board wipe. Excellent card but potentially not better than Bident of Thassa, Recon Mission, and Coastal Piracy. Better in decks that don't run Blue. I have it in my Goblin deck.

Trading Post - do it all!

Well of Lost Dreams would be good with your commander, but so are lots of others. Probably not better than other effects in this deck.

Farsight Mask - draws a card for each creature that attacks you, and more. Five mana is a lot though. I think this card is underrated, but you kinda don't want to be attacked in the first place, right? Great on a budget.

Tamiyo's Journal - fantastic for decks that care about the number of artifacts you control. You only have a few of these effects though.

Bolas's Citadel - massive, massive power. Honestly surprised this card isn't more expensive. Might be worth buying just for your collection. Your commander's lifelink can help fuel it. You can also sac faerie tokens as a win-con. Triple-Black isn't effortless to cast, but once you have six mana you could probably swing it.

Book of Rass - kind of a budget Greed. If you were going Artifact-heavy then it might be worth considering.

Coveted Jewel - chaotic and fun. Your flyers can steal it back easily. Like the Monarch mechanic, it can keep the heat off you if your opponents try to steal it from eachother.

Staff of Nin - oh how the mighty have fallen. This card used to be a staple like, six years ago. Not much point in running it in a deck with access to Blue and Black colors. Still, it's an artifact.

The Magic Mirror - Big upside but hard to cast. Bonus points for being an Eldraine card!

Ok so I didn't check to see if any of these were in the deck already but... here's my list of suggestions!

It's a lot of cards so...

Again some of these may be cut worthy but off the cuff this is what I came up with. Also I didn't include any ninjas... I figure they are easy enough to find

Veyran, Voice of Duality and Harmonic Prodigyfor doubling up triggers, Rielle, the Everwise turns all your discards into more card draw, and The Magic Mirror for cumulative card draw. Those are the only ones that come to mind that I've seen recently.

This deck is really well built good job

You have several small fry that is good early in the game (ie. Simian spirt guide, Spellseeker , Trinket Mage ) but later in the game might not be so good. Have you considered adding Mystic Reflection so later in the game you can have several Consecrated Sphinx and Jace's Archivist . That would be great because your tokens would also enter as copies of those creatures

With all of the small tokens you're creating maybe add Impact Tremors and/or Purphoros, God of the Forge

Also if you for a wheel sub-theme you may want to add cards such as Wheel of Misfortune , Magus of the Wheel , Tolarian Winds , and Forgotten Creation .

For card draw Rhystic Study , Bident of Thassa , and Curiosity Crafter

with all of this card draw maybe Thought Vessel , Reliquary Tower , Spellbook , and Venser's Journal

Annnnnndddd some more great cards are Chasm Skulker , Body of Knowledge , Enter the infinte, The Magic Mirror and Finale of Revelation

BTW thanks for the upvote

The deck is looking pretty good. I like the creature base you have chosen, there are a couple questionable creatures though. Cloudreader Sphinx seems kind of bad in this deck. If you just want a flying scryer, perhaps Sphinx of Foresight, Prognostic Sphinx, Stormwing Entity, or Siani, Eye of the Storm.

Passwall Adept is just not good enough. its too much of a resource drain. Opt is not helpful in this deck since you immediately draw the card after scrying. Cunning Evasion wont do much good I am thinking since most of your creatures wont be blocked anyway.

In my opinion, you need a few less low CMC cards and a few more high CMC that you can use to get Yuriko damage in. For cuts, I would start by looking at any creatures that cost CMC 2/3 that dont provide value other than being unblockable (Invisible Stalker, Vault Skirge (love that card btw). I would then look at replacing sorceries with instants where possible. Darksteel Pendant and Crystal Ball are not good enough in my opinion and are too much of a resource investment unless there is some sort of artifact strategy I am missing. Dimir Keyrune provides interesting utility but is inefficient. Consider Arcane Signet instead or perhaps even Dark Ritual. Thran Dynamo is fairly efficient for cost to mana provided but it seems most of your mana needs are for color. Key to the City is for yuriko after she is out I assume.. I would probably run Aqueous Form instead because it has a scry effect on attack which is pretty desirable.

Here are some cards to consider in not much particular order:

Zhalfirin Void

Moonring Island

Chromatic Orrery (high cmc and provides a lot of mana)

Mission Briefing (can add card to graveyard for delve and recast Brainstorm which is arguably one of the best cards in the deck)

Condescend

Chain of Vapor (way to return a card to hand as well as an opponents card or cards)

Archaeomancer (can get brainstorm back and can be returned to hand with ninjitsu potentially)

Harsh Scrutiny

Shrieking Drake

Archetype of Imagination

Flood of Tears (this is a pet card of mine. You can return a bunch of cheap creatures and then put out something big like a Chromatic Orrery)

Lim-Dul's Vault

Scroll Rack (spendy but so good)

Soothsaying

Spire Owl

Diabolic Vision

Index

Spy Network

Trickery Charm (does multiple things you want)

Beseech the Queen

The Magic Mirror

The Cauldron of Eternity

Deep-Sea Kraken

Avatar of Woe

Void Beckoner

Dead Drop

Tombstalker

Curse of the Cabal

Connive / Concoct

Grozoth (requires you to build around it to be worthwhile but can be good)

Scion of Darkness

Treasure Cruise

Baral's Expertise

Thanks for suggestion, but i think i don't really need any of this. The Magic Mirror triggers only on upkeep, which means once per turn and the rest of the time it just sits there and do nothing. Teferi's Ageless Insight is just too mana-heavy.

Meh cards: Retreat to Coralhelm

Cards to consider adding: Aven Mindcensor, Jace's Erasure, Propaganda , Ghostly Prison, Windborn Muse, Solemn Simulacrum, Frantic Search, Ponder, The Magic Mirror, Psychic Corrosion, Jace Beleren, Reliquary Tower

Remember than milling people out is likely how you will win.

Definitely make sure to add more than just basic lands, otherwise, it'll be hard to cast things. Go to https://www.managathering.com/duallands/Azorius.html for other of the choices. Clicking the lands will take you to the TCG player page for the land
