There's an article titled "Return of the Ninjas" by Jake Ziering at TCGplayer that discuss this deck.
There's also a forum discussion somewhere titled "Sea - Stompy" about this kind of deck.

Points worth noticing:
* The baits also function as mana accellerator
* Creature removals using Electrolyze, utilising Izzet spell. Useful against 1 toughness creatures.
* Disruption using Thought of Ruin and counterspells
* Non-legendary hitter Rumbling Slum. I prefer RS than Burning-Tree Shaman because BTS makes Ninjutsu costs 1 life.
