Ebony Owl Netsuke Discussion

Kederekt Parasite, only works if you have a red permanent (Artifact, Enchantment, Creature or Planeswalker), you don't have any. Your playing in a similar space to Owling Mine (Ebony Owl Netsuke) decks, but wanting to leverage discard, so Gnat Miser might make more sense as a 1 drop creature. There are a couple of 3 drop creatures which are worth considering too Master of the Feast and Adamaro, First to Desire. Lastly here are a couple of spells that cause hand discard and draw; Reforge the Soul and Wheel of Fate and one that plays well with Burning Inquiry if you keep it Runeflare Trap. Hope this helps, good luck with your brew.

Geralf_Cecani, already made the case for adding blue or green, I'm going to make a case for black or staying in mono white.
First off black actually has a straight up fog Darkness, splashing black also lets you use Batwing Brume to its full extent and the obvious Lingering Souls. Plansewalker wise you would have access to Sorin, Lord of Innistrad and Sorin, Grim Nemesis, both are pretty reasonable and more budget friendly than most. Note too that a new BE planeswalker is due for release with the next set.
This idea isn't really mine, I got it from foxinsox's deck Competitive Solemnity in Selesnya. This deck uses Solemnity and Phyrexian Unlife to create a board state where you can't die. This is likely to work simply because enchantments are much harder to remove than other permanents. This is again a great way to stall out the board and frustrate your opponent. In the same vein so might Gideon of the Trials and white is the colour of tax cards like Rule of Law and Ghostly Prison...
Lastly, your card draw choices remind me of Owl-ing Mine, this deck uses Ebony Owl Netsuke to deal it's damage and cards like Boomerang and Remand to stall your opponents board. Again this isn't strictly my idea, as I got it from DaFerra's deck Owl-ing Mine.
Hope this was of help and give you some ideas...

I went away, went on a Solstice vigil, and in the middle of the night had a revelation on how I would play it. I still stand by Isochron Scepter, but it doesn't address the problem you named of actually winning.
When I first saw the deck I was dubious about the enters tapped effects - it feels like they're taking the deck in a different direction than it wants to go, and splitting the deck's resources. My moment of revelation was realizing that the opponent's hand is almost always going to be full. If the deck runs right, a Temple Bell only benefits you because you're the only one playing things. So the first thing I'd add is a couple Howling Mine, Anvil of Bogardan, Mikokoro, Center of the Sea
But your hand is emptying out much faster than theirs. Khorvath's Fury draws you a card and deals seven damage to them Black Vise is almost guaranteed to do three every turn. and Ebony Owl Netsuke is doing a solid four each turn. Molten Psyche does seven or more!
This also means that bouncing things, given how hard it is for your opponents to play them, is as good removal as burn. AEther Membrane, Stingscourger or Witch Hunter might all be worth a try. Add a Trinisphere, Aura of Silence, or Sphere of Resistance to give them an extra hard time

There's also no reason to not be playing Force of Will in your mono-blue control deck. This will help immensely if your opponent tries to do something tricky, like resolve a Stoneforge Mystic that's going to grab Batterskull or casting Liliana of the Veil.
Probably the derpiest card for Stasis is As Foretold. Like, I don't think your opponent can actually win if you resolve both. You will be able to cast Counterspells with impunity, while never having to tap an Island except to pay for Stasis.
Lastly, Meditate, Chrome Mox, and Lotus Petal are all good options. Meditate fills a similar role to Chronatog, but helps you find more answers and threats. Chrome Mox and Lotus Petal allow you to go "SURPRISE, NERDS! Turn 1 Stasis on the draw!" or even turning out an early As Foretold.

You could also make the cycle have the different color lands have different abilities.

Just a few things. Depending on how you want to combo out, there are a few things you can do, the main thing being winning with infinite draw with Mind Over Matter + Temple Bell , or you can go infinite Stasis with no hope for any more magic with Chronatog + Frozen AEther + Stasis .
Now for cuts. Black Vise, Ebony Owl Netsuke and Iron Maiden dont really do what a Kami deck wants, which is to control the game. I would recommend filling them in with Mind Over Matter, Chronatog, and Flow of Ideas

Don't wanna be rude but what is the reason behind the mainboard One with Nothing? is the local meta overrun with Ebony Owl Netsuke/Runeflare Trap meme decks?
If the reason is the price of Street Wraith, you can try Edge of Autumn, or even Faerie Macabre which can be a really good maindeck card to pick up some percentage point against Snapcaster Mage, Lingering Souls & all sorts of graveyard based decks in general.
Both Faithless Looting & Cathartic Reunion live or die by the free cycling/discard effects, as they are badly NEEDED to make any of the decks hallmark explosive multiple Hollow One plays.
And if you can't find a green source Ancient Grudge, Abrade seems to be a strictly better spell. As the second mode is very relevant, it can mean a 2nd playset of removal to slow down storm, or it can be useful in the mirror, or against humans, merfolk, death & taxes, even if they didn't get to their vials.
Ratchet Bomb can only do its Engineered Explosives impression if you have removal to survive long enough, which tends to require being a control deck. Thus its mainly run in decks like skred, that don't play a second color, and can defend themselves long enough to be able to effectively utilize it.
Bomat Courier is a pretty problematic card, it gets stonewalled by anything, and Hollow One decks simpyl don't have the board presence early game to force the opponent to choose between blocking them, or some stronger creature, and once your opponent realize the combo with One with Nothing, those cards will be exiled after any removal spell, thus all those fine Bloodghasts & Flamewake Phoenixes will go to waste.
(and you have no way to turn on Liliana, Heretical Healer Flip, which is a great problem if you want to use her, even cards like Jaya Ballard, Task Mage would do more good... (and she is a large liablity in the current removal heavy meta), maybe use something like Infernal Tutor in her place, that card seems to be good in grindy mathcups, it allows you to find second pieces of cards, and the deck lives by doubling up on Hollow One or Flameblade Adept - or it can find the answer you must find, if you get empty handed in grindy game)
