Interesting deck, but I think you need to address your mana curve. You've got some big splashy spells that may not do enough if you do get the mana to cast them.
Creatures-wise I'd cut: Arbiter of the Ideal, Delver of Secrets, Inniaz, the Gale Force, Platinum Angel, Sphinx Mindbreaker, Sphinx of Uthuun, and Sphinx's Disciple. They all don't seem to do enough for their mana, except for Inniaz but I think that's an illegal card in your build as it has a hybrid mana symbol.
Artifacts I'd cut: Gilded Lotus, Spellbook, Trailblazer's Boots, and Seat of the Synod. The Lotus is a little too expensive for it's payoff, the Spellbook doesn't do enough even for a free spell, the Trailblazers are too little payoff as almost all of your creatures fly and you shouldn't need to try to get through, and without a lot of artifact synergy I'd cut the artifact land or turn it in to an island if you feel like you have the right amount of lands.
What to add: I'd look for more Sphinxes that cost 1-4 mana, Universal Automaton and other changelings are good. I'd also add some cheaper mana rocks such as Coldsteel Heart , Mind Stone , Thran Dynamo , and Arcane Signet . Cards with delve are also your friend as your opponents are loading up your graveyard - Treasure Cruise and Dig Through Time . Or get an Elixir of Immortality to help reset if your grave gets a little too big.

I've been brewing a similar deck. I think cards with delve (although typically awesome) are a bit of a trap for Octavia (ref: Treasure Cruise , Dig Through Time ) as it can really hamper your graveyard spell count. Also I'd look in to lowering your mana curve, big spicy spells are nice but sometimes having a Gitaxian Probe is nice. I'd also cut out 3-4 creatures and work on putting in some more instants. Keep in mind Octavia's ability transforms any creatures in to 8/8's not just yours so be sure to politic a bit and turn somebody's Solemn Simulacrum or Aven Mindcensor in to a Quilled Slagwurm to make for bad blocks or random swings in life totals.

Hey! I have a Yuriko list on my tappedout, hope it helps too: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/sneaky-fairinjas/ . About your list, I have some tips that may help you.
First, I think that Draco, despite having a mana value of 16, is pretty bad in this deck. You won't be able to cast it in most situations and, if you cast it, it is very weak. I think that cards that doesn't have that mana value, but you can cast and they may actually be useful, works better than it. Maybe a card with this function is Commit / Memory or, if your budget allows for it, Emrakul, the Promised End .
I don't think that you will take benefit from K'rrik as you want to. This deck deals damage to all opponents and can struggle with life because it attracts a lot of hate from your opponents, so using K'rrik to cast spells paying life won't be good (don't know / think that its lifelink helps that much). Also, K'rrik doesn't have an ETB or evasion to help your ninjutsu.
If Shapesharer doesn't work that well, maybe a card like Unnatural Selection may be stronger.
Maybe cast Wound Reflection is hard and attract a lot of hate to you, so maybe is better to swap it for some cheap creature with evasion, a Ninja with Ninjutsu or something like it.
Other inclusions are (depending on your budget): Zendikar Rising mythic-DFC, split-cards (e.g. Discovery / Dispersal ) and free spells (e.g. Snuff Out , Deadly Rollick ), board wipes (e.g. Devastation Tide ), cards with Delve (e.g. Treasure Cruise ), etc. Cards that have a high mana value but can be cheaper (or even free) works very well in this deck.

Theres a whole lot you can improve here, some stuff is budget and some is not. Cards like Dig Through Time , Primeval Protector and Treasure Cruise are great here since you can cast them for cheap and still get a high cascade trigger, they’re also budget friendly. Stuff like Ghalta, Primal Hunger and The Great Henge are even better but not budget friendly anymore. I made a more optimized and less budget version of Imoti and it does crazy stuff. Like drawing and playing like 70 cards a turn and putting 25 lands into play untapped the same turn. By turn 5-6 your board looks absolutely nuts. Feel free to take a look if you’re looking for new toys. There are good budget cards but also more expensive stuff

cheffireball Time Walk isn’t necessarily terrible but you have to be mindful that you are resetting your Storm count when you take that turn. I’ve still used it with Mind's Desire in conjunction with Day's Undoing but that works more because the efficiency of wheels.
Brainstorm is more about the advantage over the selection. Treasure Cruise just isn’t going to be cheap enough consistently enough to be as efficient as we need. Brainstorm is just a draw 1 but if it lets us go three deep and we can ring off something like a Mind's Desire or Paradoxical Outcome , we can usually just go right through whatever we have our back on top. There’s just nothing that’s going to come close to Ancestral Recall .
I really ought to set up a discord for it. I only play it on untap. This is as far as my outreach goes on the matter with what time I have. I ought to look into it though. As much as the concept of the format may be viable, the support structure for it may not be. I don’t know if a few discords is going to do anything real and I don’t know that it needs to. What I find on untap is serviceable enough and maybe keeping formats grassroots like this is probably going to be better for the concept itself. I will look into the discord.

Nice list to start with. You should consider cards that reduce their cost like Ghalta, Primal Hunger , Dig Through Time , Treasure Cruise or Primeval Protector . Playing a Ghalta for just 2 and still getting a 12 mana cascade trigger is just nuts. The Great Henge is like super good for that reason, it also draws you cards and ramps. Omniscience does really well in Imoti and Aetherflux Reservoir can easily get you 150+ life a turn because of its special interaction with cascade. Also some additional card draw like Thunderous Snapper has proven to be awesome. My Imoti can easily draw and play like 50-70 cards a turn and put 25 lands into play in one turn, with a few changes yours could really get to the next level :-)
