Look, Chain of Vapor kills lage, it's a token, why just prevent damage.
Honestly I am upset too, and I apologize if it came out that way, but you have repeatedly said I broke rules while incorrectly stating them.
Again, instead of Fog, just run Karakas if you are actually scared of it, that's a land that shuts down the whole archetype. Fog is a joke. Scared of field too? Echoing Truth deals with either. Luckily, truth is really budget too, so, that's always good!
Now onto the rules, that GoblinElectromancer made so elegantly in comparison to you changing, 75 cards in a deck, Mental Misstep and Force of Will aren't banned (as of us writing this at least, and he previously claimed my deck wastunning banned cards), you editing this post to make it seem like you always had 75 in the card slot isn't tricking anyone.
You misquoted shadow63, where I requoted him properly. You lied and said his exact quote was "You either run burn, mill, or tokens, right?" Which implies only those archetypes due to the word "either", which wasn't his exact quote, as it was "So burn or mill or tokens?" Which just asks if those seem like good archetypes in the format, not pretending that they were the only ones.
I never said shadow63 solved it, you are trying to quote him, lied about his words to make him sound stupid or naive when he is an excellent deck builder and understands more decks exist, and then attempted to say you knew better and made a fancy new deck I had already mentioned and tested before you even heard about the format.
And you're angry and regretful? Be more regretful. Don't lie, don't change words around pretending you weren't wrong, read the rules of the format, be a decent user on this forum.

xander11: Chain of Vapor is an all-star, I'm a huge fan. Faithless Looting has been solid, and Rielle, the Everwise does great things with it -- it helps me pitch useful spells into GY to recast with Vadrok.

If the plan is to Polymorph, I would cut the Deadeye/Drake package, and just run Oracle/Leveler. I think the better plan is to always know that Talrand is lethal if Mass Polymorph resolves. Other than that, I would probably try and lower the curve a little. Cut some of the more expensive countermagic and run things like Winds of Change and Chain of Vapor. Dispel and Miscast should also be in here, and maybe even Foil for another free hard counter. It’s bad, but we don’t have access to Force, and losing three cards is better than losing the game.
Let’s cut some of the other expensive win cons like Sphinx-Bone Wand to run a few more mana rocks, like Coldsteel Heart and Sky Diamond. We only have one primary win condition now, but it’s much more effective and resilient, and we can keep our combat damage backup plan. If we really wanted to, we could play Proteus Staff to try and stack our deck in the event we draw both combo pieces/have had them killed, but I think that’s just super greedy and going to be a liability most of the time.
Amass the Components could be See Beyond. That way, we could keep the escape option if we accidentally draw our wincons, but we lower the cost by two. We could also shave Distant Melody and replace it with Chart a Course. It might be less cards total, but it’s half the price, and is always letting us see two cards. Careful Study could be in here too.
That’s all I can think of for now, but I really like this concept. Mostly, we just really need to bring down this curve. Best of luck!

Hey! Big fan of Breya, love the number of comboes XD
Why are you running Street Wraith, Vindicate, and Path to Exile over more blue spell that are similar or better that would also support Force of Will, 23 other blue spells to support it is a little thin, so I'd recommend Force of Negation, Chain of Vapor, and Dovin's Veto, with possibly Pongify/Rapid Hybridization if your meta is Aggressively creature based!

New update incoming:
I've reevaluated some of the cards in the deck and found that some underperform.
Cold-Eyed Selkie is a very good card that does do what the deck wants to do, but the deck doesn't want Selkie to be the one doing it.
Chain of Vapor and Quickling are too narrow to justify a spot. While I do feel we could use more ways to have Ukkima leave the battlefield, there are other cards that let us do that better, or serve other purposes as well. (Culling the Weak and Putrefy respectively).
Negate has had an upgrade.

My recommendations :
I think most people will tell you that Oloro offers little competitive advantage to you compared to other esper commander like Zur (who can fetch Necropotence into play) or even Aminatou (who is a combo piece in the command zone). I think upsides for Oloro would be that he can do larger ad nauseam and possibly can even run Humility which few decks can win while it is on the board.
MANA COST TOO HIGH
I would first add better ramp, better draw, potential Stax, tutors and then other win cons.
Verity Circle (good against dorks)
Plunge into Darkness (a good Impulse)
CONSULT COMBO Demonic Consultation
AD NAUSEAM COMBO Angel's Grace
Ad Nauseam (draw whole deck, can Windfall and make everyone die while AG means you can't lose
Heliod Walking Ballista
Rocks that produce at least three mana total (outlet is extort with blind obedience or crypt ghast) If have pristine Talisman gain infinite life, which is infinite draw with commander
