    Faerie Ninja Still (Mono Blue Tempo)

    Faerie Ninja Still
    Archetype: Tempo

    //Main deck
    2 Judge's Familiar
    3 Cloud of Faeries
    4 Faerie Miscreant
    4 Spellstutter Sprite
    4 Ninja of the Deep Hours

    2 Smuggler's Copter

    4 Force of Will
    4 Daze
    2 Counterspell
    2 Spell Pierce
    2 Stifle
    2 Snap

    4 Standstill
    1 Umezawa's Jitte

    4 Mishra's Factory
    16 Island

    //Sideboard / Maybeboard
    Surgical Extraction
    Pithing Needle
    Mistblade Shinobi
    Echoing Truth
    Favorable Winds
    Psionic Blast

    Some starting points for the discussion:
    - This is a tempo-based strategy, so I believe there's no reason to run cards like Ponder or Preordain. Also, this deck draws a lot, so the cantrips are not really missed. Smuggler's Copter helps with the mana flood when the draws are sub-optimal.
    - Although the decklist might seem short on win-cons, the deck does not lack damage. I believe Mishra's Factory is the right choice over Mutavault as the pumping ability is way more valuable than the Faerie count for Spellstutter Sprite.
    - I do miss some more bouncing capacity, so I've considered to include Mistblade Shinobi in the Mainboard, or maybe one or two copies of Curfew, as it plays around True-Name Nemesis and it works great with most of our creatures.

    Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    Mausoleum Wanderer is slightly better than Judge's Familiar since you are not running white mana.

    You should run Back to Basics somewhere in the 75 as surprise mana denial. Possibly 1-of MD.

    Your own TNN could improve the deck by providing a hard to get rid of blocker who is super good at pushing damage through. Potentially 2-of MD.

    You will need in the SB anti-storm stuff and a way of getting rid of problematic permanents (e.g. Ensnaring Bridge). Possibly Spell Pierce or Mindbreak Trap (instead of Flusterstorm) if you are on a budget and Echoing Truth or Ratchet Bomb. SB Karakas could also be useful against Emrakul and Iona on blue decks.

    Divert is a narrow alternative to Misdirection. Meta dependant SB card.

    Disrupt and Ceremonious Rejection are super narrow SB card options.

    You probably want to play the new 1 drop 1/1 flying hard-counter pirate from ixalan
