Erebos, God of the Dead
Legendary Enchantment Creature — God

Your opponents can't gain life.

Erebos, God of the Dead Discussion

You're off to a great start! I would recommend a bit more ramp though. Karlov draws a lot of hate, and rightfully so, so even though he's 2 CMC you'll have to recast him a fair amount. You're at 5 ramp pieces right now but I always aim for 8 in my decks, give or take a few depending on the curve of the deck. Crypt Ghast is great but expensive and delicate so it's worth running but can be unreliable. Try Wayfarer's Bauble , Star Compass , Prismatic Lens , Mind Stone , and/or Worn Powerstone .
One thing many new EDH-deck builders stumble on is not enough interaction/removal. It's usually best to focus on building your own board state than tearing down others but having some removal is very important still. I love it when I have a deck that can support heavy removal. That said, I think you might have a bit too much, especially considering you have removal in the Command Zone. Definitely keep all the enchantment/artifact removal you can (enchantments are some of the most powerful things in commander and the hardest to remove). I like the exile effects, since recursion is so common. Check out Return to Dust and Forsake the Worldly . Running 2-6 board wipes is great and you're there already.
I'd recommend replacing a few targeted-creature removal cards with some more utility cards, partucularly draw spells. Greed and Well of Lost Dreams are awesome. Try Read the Bones , Ancient Craving , Ambition's Cost , Phyrexian Arena , Arguel's Blood Fast Flip, Erebos, God of the Dead , and Promise of Power .
Rhystic Tutor is a trap. I'd drop it.

You might want to consider Crypt Ghast , Bubbling Muck , Dark Ritual , Mana Crypt , Liliana, Dreadhorde General , Greed , Erebos, God of the Dead , Athreos, God of Passage , Phyrexian Reclamation and Malevolent Awakening .
You can also check out my brew and see if there is anything else you find if value.

I can see Vilis, Broker of Blood in the maybe board and I’d say that would be a good inclusion in the main board, any spells you cast with your commander will draw you 2 cards minimum which is insane card advantage.
Ivory Tower could be a very good option as it only costs 1 mana and could gain you a fair bit of life back each turn.
Erebos, God of the Dead could also be a very good inclusion because it’ll give you card advantage and stops your opponents from gaining life.

Ah, fellow Vilis, Broker of Blood admirer. I swear this Demon is underrated. I told my best friend all about him and how awesome he is, and my friend insisted he is hot garbage.
Then he played a deck that runs him as the Commander. Went 3-0.
I'd love to recommend Phyrexian Obliterator , but I see what you are doing and he doesn't jive with your gameplan. However, I have two more suggestions;

Hold it, I changed my mind about Karona, False God . I'll try & revise this Yidris CHAOS Deck the way I intended it to be. Rules?
Keep the Land Base as it is.
Keep the Talismans, Rings, & Crypt for decent measure. I'll let you decide the fate of the rest of the Rocks.
Aggravated Assault + Bear Umbra are in as they not only allow extra Combat, but this Bear, unlike the entire Bear Creature Type, untaps all your lands for additional Cascades.
Chance Encounter + Frenetic Efreet WILL be a Wincon here, though I'd like several others; including a combo that for CHAOS terms, It's kinda GG if in my favor, but can cost me SEVERELY; almost to the point of a Loss; A True Battle of CHAOTICA.
What Other Coin Flip Effects and/or Random effects would you put in? What other misc. CHAOS Effects would be good also?
On theme w/ Cascade, what cards in Yidris' Colors might be good here, & has Cascade? ( Throes of Chaos , Kathari Remnant , Bloodbraid Elf , Deny Reality , Etherium-Horn Sorcerer & Maelstrom Wanderer are prime, but I dunno about Demonic Dread , Violent Outburst , Shardless Agent , & Bituminous Blast ... your thoughts would be good though...)
I'm at 100. This means I'll have to replace ALOT of stuff. I hope you're ready. I'll put some stuff back in, but I might need some help yet again; at least for the Wincons I described them as such...
Thank you for helping me out. :)
