At the beginning of your end step, you may reveal the top card of your library. If you do, each opponent loses life equal to that card's converted mana cost.

BelugaWhale217 I'd personally cut the following:
Cryptolith Fragment Flip and the 3 Cluestones - I'd opt for the Talismans instead (e.g. Talisman of Dominance since the hit the battlefield 1 turn earlier and doesn't ETB tapped (in the case of Fragment).
Sigiled Starfish - Scry 1 ain't as impactful if the intent is to help manipulate the top of your library. I'd play Scroll Rack if you've access to the card. Penance is also a great hidden gem as it allows you to return bombs you drew from your hand to the top of the library for Yennett to do her magic.
Aqueous Form - Am assuming the intent is to enchant Yennett with this. However, with Flying and Menace, most players will have difficulty blocking her. Once again, Scry 1 doesn't allow you to dig deep into the top of your library.
My humble 2 cents, hope these helps. While we took the deck in a different direction, you can check out some of my card choices as well. Cheers.

Thanks for the upvote and comment. Main goal for this deck is to set up for some fun swingy plays without any combo. My list has Approach of the Second Sun in the deck and the very first game I played with the deck I hit it off my first Yennett swing and also had a Mystical Tutor in hand for the second swing. Took Approach out because I realized it was just going to be an Approach deck otherwise.
I know I have some competitive cards in here, but it's actually more of a play for fun and see what happens deck. Biggest challenge is balancing the card types so you can get fun swings off Yennett but also not stall out with nothing to cast. Really can't go overboard on the mana rocks because they'll either power out an early Yennett or pay for your bigger spells later on.

Just... Wow... Casting Clever Impersonator only to get itself killed, specifically so that you can bring it back as a token using Mimic Vat , so that you can have a Token copy of Baneful Omen , so that Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer can turn all of your Brass's Bounty treasure tokens into additional copies of Baneful Omen .... The setup required for this combo is absurd... You have to have down a shitton of lands, cast a Bounty, have down Mimic Vat, have Omen in play, have Brudiclad in play, have Impersonator in hand..... Jeez... This is truly a work of art.

DrkNinja: the problem with Sorin and Prophet are that they want to put cards in my hand, and since the turn I kill everyone is the last turn and there isn’t more than 1-5 cards in my deck, that wouldn’t kill the whole table. Plus Sorin is legendary so I can’t make 30+ Sorin tokens, and Prophet triggers during your upkeep, so I would have to hope that nobody could wipe the board or deal with it. Baneful Omen doesn’t put cards in hand and happens on my turn, and also I like playing such a shitty card and winning with it.
Jodah isn’t really necessary, as on the last turn, I typically have 30+ lands in play, and casting all the stuff I need to is not an issue.

I updated the description to note that the Mimic Vat makes a token.

Extra turns as you know. I run a few creatures just because it speeds up the clock immensely. I try to keep my stuff within castable range so if Yennett is dealt with, I can keep going. It adds more resiliency. THis is also not tuned to the max just cuz I'm playing against mid to high tier decks with this list.
Again, creatures help, but if you want ways to kill people, steal their stuff or maybe consider Baneful Omen or other similar effects that gain value over time since you're going to be taking turns. Alternatively just blow people's stuff up with Balancing Act type cards with yennett out. People will hate you even more than before tho.
