, : Target opponent exiles cards from the top of their library until they exile an instant or sorcery card. You may cast that card without paying its mana cost. Then put the exiled cards that weren't cast this way on the bottom of that library in a random order.
Chaos Wand Discussion

Have you thought about adding Chaos Wand to this deck? I pisses off opponents even more and allows you to use their own instant and sorcery cards against them. I've noticed that it is most effective against the blue and red decks.

EDH is really fun! Especially when you make a deck around a theme. I've made a similar Grixis theft deck with Jeleva. Here's a bunch of cards I have found fun and effective in my Grixis theft deck:
Emrakul, the Promised End , Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Grenzo, Havoc Raiser , Havengul Lich , Hostage Taker , Keiga, the Tide Star , Kheru Mind-Eater , Lord of the Void , Mindclaw Shaman , Necrotic Ooze , Nightveil Specter , Sepulchral Primordial , Sphinx Ambassador , Boneyard Parley , Knowledge Exploitation , Mnemonic Betrayal , Order of Succession , Role Reversal , Talent of the Telepath , Telemin Performance , Worst Fears , Commandeer , Desertion , Gather Specimens , Redirect , Reverberate , Spelljack , Wild Ricochet , Chaos Wand , Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker

I run a Glissa, the Traitor death trample deck. Find cards that grant trample to deathtouch creatures, give the finger to people attacking me, hit for massive amounts because the have to throw as many creatures as it’s power.
So, I run Chaos Wand because it’s funny and for this exact reason; target atraxa player rips Become Immense off the top attaches it too glissa who already has a Loxodon Warhammer and then Blossoming Defense . The guy just throws up his hands and is out. Now my GF she was playing at the same table and winks at me and plays Turnabout Untapping my wand and sol ring. I also had a Nissa, Worldwaker in play and then untap my forests. I use the wand again and hit a Relentless Assault Knock out another player. Then she kills me next turn.

Mono red burn is always solid and you've got a nice balance of things here. Ghitu Lavarunner could be good be a way to make this stronger. If you are looking for a fun twist you are pretty close to having enough goblins for Icon of Ancestry and Chaos Wand is always great.

(saw your post on tumblr and had to come and suggest stuff, but feel free to ignore, I'm just trying to throw some ideas out to help out!)
I think counterspells aren't very good as signature spells (but I don't have much experience with Oathbreaker). If you're going for flavor I think Expansion / Explosion , Izzet Charm or Turn//Burn could work. (It could also be fun to build a Harnessed Lightning energy-themed deck for Ral, Storm Conduit :x)
I think that instead of running a lot of creatures with tap (or untap) abilities it would be easier to focus on artifacts for the ramp/card draw/etc with cards like Clock of Omens , Key to the City , Staff of Nin (), Unwinding Clock , Chaos Wand , Oracle's Vault () and a bunch of mana rocks ( Mind Stone , Pyramid of the Pantheon (), Coalition Relic (), Talisman of Creativity , Star Compass , Hedron Archive , Basalt Monolith and Khalni Gem ). Animation Module can add counters to planeswalkers, so that could be fun too.
Reality Shift is probably the best creature single target removal in blue.
I'd cut down on the number of X damage spells you're running and rely more on having some graveyard recursion/tutoring to make it more consistent. Mystic Retrieval would be my choice to run along with Archeomancer. Mizzix's Mastery is also pretty good, but probably better if you're focusing on spellslinging.
Vandalblast and Shenanigans (or maybe Release the Gremlins for the cuteness) are good artifact removal. Geistblast is a interesting Flashback spell that actually should be like Amonkhet's Aftermath. Insidious Will 's versatility shouldn't be underestimated.
(aaand I already suggested too much. Like I said, feel free to ignore. Can't wait to see the finished deck. I hope something from this mess helps!)

This looks like a really interesting deck!
I’m not sure if you’re looking for suggestions but if you are: You don’t have many artifact/creature etb effects, but have you considered Panharmonicon to trigger Jeleva twice, and along with that, Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Hostage Taker if you’re looking at using other players’ cards.

Hey there not sure if this will help the lack of gas problem, but you can try it out.
Narset, Parter of Veils only allows opponents to draw one card and then you can play cards like Windfall , Day's Undoing , Magus of the Jar , and Teferi's Puzzle Box to reload your hand but then have your opponents discard their hands and only draw one—-or in the case of Prosperity or Minds Aglow there is no discarding but then you can reload your hand while opponents only get to draw one card. If you do decide to go this route I would suggest one or two tutors for Narset herself and for the instant and sorceries that Wheel and deal. Noble Benefactor is a janky—huggy option for a tutor, and then there are cards like Muddle the Mixture (can get any spell of 3cmc or Mystical Tutor . I cant recall any tutors for green and blue that can get any planeswalkers.
Anyway, hope my suggestion helps. It’s slightly off theme from the sea monsters but it could be a good sub-theme for you to try. Plus the wheel and deals can get ripped straight from Chaos Wand as well.

Seems like a waste to have 4 guardians of koilos in the side if you only need 2 for the combo. I would say max 3 and then put in something else karn can grab if needed. Like maybe a Chaos Wand vs control matchups or Silent Gravestone to hose any graveyard decks. Use your board as a toolbox karn can use to take out any strategy you can think of.
