PrideGreen Thanks for the suggestions. These are good cards and fit the theme well too.

I'm unable to throw them in due to space constraints as the deck is already very tight. I did contemplate taking out Crystal Ball for one of these cards but I went with repeatable Scry in the end.

Currently, am running Brainstorm cause it allows me to put the bombs I drew back on top of the library. Ponder has the added benefit of allowing me to shuffle the unwanted cards away to refresh the top of my library.

Let me know if there're cards you think can be taken out to fit these in.

@TheMaggotPrince Seems like an ok card depending on your meta. Being a primer, I've opted not to include narrow answers.

Budget replacements for Guile and Rack include Crystal Ball, Darksteel Pendant, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, and Seer's Lantern. Bestiary is honestly almost good enough to make the cut in my build. The rest are at about the same power level, and you'll have to play around with them to figure out which suits your deck best.

First of all, you have 1 extra card in the list, so you will need to cut a card. On to some suggestions! I am not sure what you budget is but I'll try to mention some budget and non-budget suggestions.

For extra, repeatable blink effects, Erratic Portal and Cloudstone Curio are great additions. Blade of Selves and Minion Reflector give you short lived tokens that ETB as well.

You run a lot of miracles, which are great! But you are running very little top-deck manipulation. Sensei's Divining Top, Crystal Ball, and Seer's Lantern are great. Scroll Rack is also a solid option, but I'd caution against using it without a lot of ways to shuffle your library. Ponder and it's ilk are other possibilities.

Lastly, your curve is a bit high for just 36 lands. I'd suggesting adding one more. 37-38 is generally where you want to be with your avg CMC.

Good luck and happy deck building!

Pal00ka Thanks for your suggestion.

Hall of the Bandit Lord is a good suggestion though I only run 1 creature. Due to the nature of my deck, I only run Swiftfoot Boots as Lightning Greaves gives shroud, making Yennett untarget-able by Proteus Staff. So I need all the haste enablers I can get. Will try to get a copy of the land.

Soothsaying may take the spot of Crystal Ball as the former allows me to dig deeper, but requires more mana to do so.

Good suggestions. Keep them coming if you've other interesting ideas.

Hey Cloudius, your strategy seems solid. Extra turns will give you enough protection once you got there.

Talking about your removal slot: it shows 4 single target removal and 7 boardwipes. Counters are also a form of single target removal, so technically you have 9 STR and 7 boardwipes. Although you might want to protect your extra turns with it. All in all, that is pretty solid. Maybe you want to exchange a symmetrical boardwipe with In Garruk's Wake or Plague Wind. Btw, you have Mystic Confluence three times in your deck. I know it overlaps, but you have to add two more cards.

However, your draw slot seems to be a bit weak. I know that you get your stuff with the Yennett triggers, but in EDH we love to draw cards. Suggestions: Mystic Remora, Rhystic Study, Land Tax, Jace's Ingenuity, Stroke of Genius, Sphinx's Revelation, Skeletal Scrying, Night's Whisper, Read the Bones etc.

Btw Frantic Search is not card draw, but card selection.

Strionic Resonator might also be good to get two Yennett triggers. And Mind's Dilation is nice to get extra value.

For top deck manipulationCrystal Ball, Portent, Soothsaying and Halimar Depths might be good.

All that being said. Your deck looks like a lot of fun, I really would like to play it =)

omg I just built my Yennett deck for Odd-Tribal and I did not even know Penance was a thing! I love it! I don't forget about Scry. I put a Darksteel Pendant in my deck as well as Crystal Ball but anything that lets you Scry at least gives you the option of bottoming before attack.

Panas on Edric or Rashmi? Which is ...

If you are looking for a fun to pilot, highly competitive, and efficient simic control deck, I'd look into Momir Vig Hackball :)

It's an elves deck that has decent control elements from blue and powerful combo potential for explosive 1-turn kills :)

If that's not your kind of fun, I'd go for Rashmi. Her "randomness" is never bad as it's at least card advantage, and it can be abused with or without top. Crystal Ball is a card, so is Gilt-Leaf Seer. Scrying is no stranger to blue either, not with all it's index and brainstorm effects. Nope! That's covered! The problem with Rashmi is having enough mana and the ability to play at instant speed.

My two cents...
