Title says it all. Finally giving up and trading for Tinybones at her ridiculous price. This is your shot before WotC reprints them boxes!
Also looking for other pieces, like Anvil of Bogardan, and always looking for some staple cards. Binder is up to date. :)

Thank you folks for your comments and suggestions! I'll be addressing both of you and each of your suggestions in order of appearance within this message for the sake of being concise.
theseax After much playtesting, I have made the seemingly controversial decision of cutting Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth from the list. The pairing itself was a little too cute for my liking as I could never consistently boot it. Even then, on its own, Cabal Coffers requires three other land drops, specifically being swamps in order to net any sort of valuable return from it. Since the mindset of this deck is rather all-in, it often wants to pressure a win between turns 3 and 5, so I've personally opted in favor of a more consistent manabase by dropping the pair. As such, Manascape Refractor probably isn't for this deck I'm afraid. It sort of faces the same issue I had with running Urborg, making it rather dead outside of being used in conjunction with Coffers, especially since I wasn't on Mana Web either.
Meessee Chain of Smog is interesting, but I feel like it could often backfire onto me rather than being a comparable mass discard outlet. Arterial Flow seems solid, although I'm tending to favor permanents like Necrogen Mists and Bottomless Pit that can continuously accrue and churn out card advantage for me in the presence of Tinybones while disrupting my opponents. Tasigur's Cruelty is a rather high top end in the presence of Dark Confidant when I'm already running a risky top end on my curve with him.
Since I'm on Shadowbag, I greatly value the cleanup step at the end of my turn to serve as a sort of discard outlet in case I don't have Skirge Familiar or Zombie Infestation in play to do it for me. Anvil of Bogardan is probably not for my list.
Plain and simple, I like Karn, the Great Creator. Will consider.
For Geier Reach Sanitarium, I think my playgroup is going to appreciate me giving them looting effects a little too much, so I'm going to have to pass on that. I'm also not a huge fan of how Nezumi Shortfang Flip targets a single player and I don't get to see their hand and choose which card they discard.
I don't feel as though I have enough creatures to sacrifice consistently to Contamination in order to keep that sort of effect around, and through a similar vein, Infernal Darkness becomes heavily taxing on me with its cumulative upkeep trigger. I want the stax pieces I'm running to not heavily impact my lines of play while also being able to stick on the board once they resolve without any sort of maintenance conditions associated with them if that makes sense.
Conqueror's Flail is a little too dicey to run in my opinion. It's a bit expensive to boot for a Grand Abolisher effect, and I'm often sacrificing creatures on my board to Razaketh or fast mana outlets so that would be an added layer to play around and pay attention to. I like Defense Grid in here though, considering in conjunction with Shimmer Myr I could play it as a sort of interruption at instant speed to protect my combo from folding to interaction. It's just one of those cards that I should only play when I think I'm going to win and not play it just because I have to mana open to play it. The table often relies on interaction so I could otherwise kingmake if I'm not careful about it. Lastly, Boseiju, Who Shelters All probably won't get enough traction in this deck considering most of my instants and sorceries are either tutors or disruption. A protected Goryo's Vengeance or Shallow Grave would be nice, but if I was on more impactful instants like Ad Nauseam my answer might be a bit different.
Hope I addressed everything fully. Thanks again!

Hi, very nice deck, thanks for sharing it. I'm working on my own build of Tinyboy aswell, so I wanted to bring you some cards you may consider for yours:
Chain of Smog, Arterial Flow, Tasigur's Cruelty are some mana efficient discard spells that you may use on your turn to get card advantage, since the other engine cards only function during opponents' turn.
I hope to be of some kind of help to you, keep up the good work.

RNR_Gaming Thank you for pointing that out! I was stuck between Day's Undoing and Molten Psyche, and I thought I could get the triggers for the snakes the same way. My concern was to hit all graveyards to combat graveyard recursion decks. It seems counter productive in Xyris, though.
I like your list, too! Obviously, much more expensive lol, but I like your inclusion of Noxious Revival and Veil of Summer. Anvil of Bogardan is a spicy 2 drop that I didn't know about, and I will likely include that card in my updated list as well.

Hi! I really like the list, it looks super toolboxy. It looks like it has a lot of wincons, which is good! They exiled Jace, so Consultation is not a winning like? No problem! Here's Bomberman!
One thing I would suggest though is to add the Sevinne's Reclamation to the list. That card is a powerhouse! If I had to suggest a cut, that would be Chains of Mephistopheles, that card is fine, but unless you're running Anvil of Bogardan I don't think it's worth. And at that point, I wouldn't add that synergy unless you're prison. A pretty useful card with a similar effect is Notion Thief, or even Alms Collector. Cool list nonetheless! I'll keep an eye on it to see how it advances! :D
