Sgtpopnfreash First of all, thanks a lot for your comments!
I don't actually have Timetwister, Candelabra of Tawnos, Flusterstorm, Copy Artifact, Volcanic Island, Underground Sea and The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, but if I had them, I would certainly use them in this deck.
I'll tell you why I like having Faithless Looting in my deck. 1) it enables me to trade three(including itself) cards from my hand for two new other cards, while discarding lands or cards that i'll be able to cast later with Kess, dissident mage , such as Mind's Desire, 2) It interacts well in some Doomsday piles that I like to settle sometimes, 3) It helps me to trigger Threshold for Cabal Ritual. Cephalid Coliseum have a similar effect enabling me to trade three cards from my hand for three new cards, while it enters untapped and taps for blue mana.
Mizzix's Mastery and Paradox Engine are too powerful for not to use them. With Paradox Engine on the field I can easely storm out and with a tutor or enough draws I can quickly close the game. It also helps me to avoid some stax effects, which my playgroup is consistently improving. I'm also considering adding Vandalblast or By Force to deal with tax and stax artifacts.
Please let me know your thoughts on my comment.

Hey this is quite similar to my DD storm Kess list some suggestions I have. Misdirection is pretty high CMC for Ad Nauseam you could probably cut that. Some ad naus decks dont even run Force of Will but I think that is stupid. Faithless Looting isnt as good as some other draw spells, Night's Whisper or Chart A Course would both probably be better choices for your Doomsday piles. Phyrexian Metamorph is also very high mana costed for an Ad Nauseam deck, maybe think about Copy Artifact. Now Paradox Engine is interesting but I really haven't found it to be necessary for Kess decks specifically, between Yawgmoth's Will, the black rituals, High Tide and Kess herself you dont need Paradox Engine for more mana. Its just excessive. Other than that the deck looks pretty good I would add a few more Islands and probably cut Cavern of Souls and Cephalid Coliseum at least maybe some of the orchards too. Mizzix's Mastery, Thought Vessel and Fabricate all seem like iffy choices but they are fine if you don't have other cards.
Here is my kess deck if you would like to check it out. Kess Doomsday Storm

Im using Doomsday as a backup win con. Im thinking of replacing it with something that is easier to assemble. Would appreciate any help the group can provide. Thanks!

Heya Sgtpopnfreash, thanks for the assist.
buuchuu, yeah, sometimes life loss is a general problem. But, usually it's just if you have to clear some stuff with Fire Covenant, which is good, but costly. Then if you also have to Necro and Doomsday or set off an Ad Naus, it can be pretty constraining. But, with stuff like Mana Crypt and Ancient Tomb and talismans and fetches, pretty soon you can be low on life and be cut off from strong Ad Nauseam lines; although usually Necropotence works at lower life totals. The short answer is I haven't found that I want Angel's Grace, but you're welcome to try it. It can be kind of slick, sometimes I Pact of Negation something that's preventing me from going off, then Angel's Grace with the pact trigger on the stack. Then if you can get Ad Nauseam off in that same turn, that's pretty strong. Hmm. I guess, my recommendation is to try the Angel's Grace and see how it goes.
I wouldn't ever cut Necropotence. There's a few rituals to cast it and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth. It's easy to tutor for turns 1-2, and costing only 3 mana makes it easier than a 5-mana Ad Nauseam. Plus, if you fill up your hand with Necro, it's really easy to assemble a hot Doomsday pile with protection from there, check my description above for the pile.

From my experience, the extra protection you get from Kess in your Doomsday piles is what she really helps with. Being able to cast a counterspell from your yard before DD resolves is huge. Also being able to double use Pact of Negation in your protection piles is great.

what do you mean by "i know how it feels"...?
my playgroup is funny about infinite mana... they won't let it finish a game like a lot of groups are wont to do. you have to have something to do with with the mana, and if you don't... then you just have a buttload of mana and nothing to show for it.
Spell Crumple is a great, yet underrated counterspell... if i needed one more i would prob put that one in.
