Council's dilemma - Starting with you, each player votes for time or money. For each time vote, take an extra turn after this one. For each money vote, choose a permanent owned by the voter and gain control of it. Exile Expropriate.

Yes. Absolutely gold in decks like Purphoros, God of the Forge. I keep one in mine because who doesn't want to exile a Dark Confidant. Sorceries like Primal Surge, In Garruk's Wake, All Is Dust, and Expropriate are good to counter here. Also, worse comes to worse, a little sac-able creature that affects Purphoros and gives you a mana boost later. Great card. No regrets.

I've been thinking about putting Warping Wail into my mono- and mono- decks but I'm not sure if it's worth a slot.
For those people who have used it before, is it any good? Obviously being able to counter spells like Tooth and Nail, Expropriate, Exsanguinate, Torment of Hailfire, and Genesis Wave along with extra turn spells is good, but what about it's other modes? In your opinion is it worth it based on being able to counter sorceries and what powerful sorceries are there that I've missed?
I want to hear people's thoughts on this card.
Thanks in advance.

Eiganjo Castle: if it works keep it, but I wouldn't spend $10 on it
Flagstones of Trokair: if you have it play it, bur don't spend $20 on it
Minamo, School at Water's Edge: this card is amazing, but doesn't combo well with any creatures you have in the deck.
Oboro, Palace in the Clouds: I like this card, but it doesn't seem to combo with anything in your deck
Baral, Chief of Compliance: this card seems very good whenever someone else plays with it, and it works with the 36 instants and sorceries you have
Consecrated Sphinx: this card is AMAZING, very very powerful
Isperia, Supreme Judge: Seems okay. But just okay
Solemn Simulacrum: Is always good, here is no different
Instants look good. But I might add Absorb over negate, but otherwise seems good.I would recommend adding:
Tithe: It is a good way to get lands
Orim's Chant: Gives you one extra turn if you cast it during someone's upkeep, stopping all the spells on their turn, and the attack.
Arcane Denial: This card is really good, you can counter your own spell to draw 3, three, card. That seems good to me.
Forbid: Buyback counterspells, always good.
Gush: draw lots of cards for returning two lands, can be very good late game. Note: it is an instant
Capsize: Returning a permanent and buyback? Sign me up!
I would recommend removing:
Disdainful Stroke: There are just better cards
Negate: Limited. Might be good, but I doubt I would play it.
I would like to commend your inclusion of Render Silent.
As for artifacts:
Look at Mind's Eye, it works very very well.
ADD Bribery. Just do. The card is AMAZING, and typically is hilarious.
Blatant Thievery is also fun
Possibly a Rout for instant speed wraths
Luminarch Ascension: Very good finisher
Future Sight: Always one more card in your hand.
Now, Narset Transcendent. You, my friend, are a trap. You NEVER will never be able to get a card off it, it is always a land. Other than that, she can be good.
Overall:I don't know how many wincons you have besides Expropriate, Luminarch Ascension or Inkwell Leviathan. That might be trouble. A Steel of the Godhead might help, but I don't know how much. Eldrazi Conscription can be good too, but that's better one on one. One idea: AEtherling, that card is amazing and is incredibly hard to kill. Or just use an Eldrazi Titan. OR, wait for it, Azor's Elocutors and Eternal Dominion. Lots of fun. If you copy Eternal Dominion, each copy gets an epic trigger, so you get a copy every turn for every copy you originally had.
DON'T SPEND $70 ON A CELESTIAL COLONNADE.

Thanks for the feedback!
@ButterMyBiscuit: I did not wrap my head around it, but to make it more affordable you could cut the eldrazi lords and add some kraken or leviathans or whatever you like. And the fetchlands could maybe be cut for a manabase that is more forest-centered with some additional land-fetching sorceries and signets. Wiggyman's list looks promising, too.
@Wiggyman: thanks for all the suggestions!
Bringer of the Black Dawn, Blightsteel Colossus, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Progenitus, Expropriate, Insurrection, Eldrazi Conscription and It That Betrays are nice options. My focus was to include creatures with cast-triggers or with abilites that are conditional on the creature being cast like Hypnox, but I'll try to find slots for some of the cards you mentioned.
Maelstrom Wanderer was not included because in this deck it doesn't hit most of the powerhouses which have higher cmc than 7.
Omniscience is great, but I did not include it for now because it would undermine Jodah's role in the deck. Ultimately I'll have to add it, though.

My kess deck is more of a control style deck, using kess to reuse board wipes, until you can gain an absurd number of extra turns with spell replication and kess. But for this style of build you can still run stuff like Expropriate or Time Warp to ezmode your opponents, or even just run Comet Storm and Mana Geyser as an alternate win condition, incase you get locked out from the board. The black effects you run like Ancient Craving are questionably, for blue has boatloads of its with alot less drawbacks(phyrexian arena is fine). I like to run stuff like Primal Amulet Flip or Swarm Intelligence,and those can literally douple yo but im a greedy boy. If you want i can upload my whole decklist so you can see it.

Also, Omniscience just works really well in this type of build. I would definitely put it in.
These are some of the giant dudes I run to cheat in:
Bringer of the Black Dawn. Blightsteel Colossus (or I would run if I could afford). Avacyn, Angel of Hope. Progenitus. It That Betrays. Maelstrom Wanderer. Boundless Realms is better than Brass's Bounty. Gisela, Blade of Goldnight. Expropriate. Time Stretch goes well with Reverberate. Insurrection. Rite of Replication. You can kill people with commander damage if you include Eldrazi Conscription.
Hope this helps!

The main problem I see with the deck is that you have no way of interacting with artifacts or enchantments other than Steel Hellkite which needs to connect or O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami which needs to connect and have been dealt damage, and Scalelord Reckoner which needs to be targeted, all of which are conditional. Perhaps a Vandalblast? If your enemy plays a Crawlspace or a Ensnaring Bridge for example your chances are highly diminished. Or worse .. a Sandwurm Convergence can effectively read "You can't win the game". I personally like Merciless Eviction as it covers everything you need to get rid of based on board, and Austere Command since all your dragons can be safe, and get rid of any pesky artifact/enchantment heavy deck.Expropriate Can help you take them away I guess? Still seems limited in that sense.
An Urza's Incubator can help reducing the cost a lot combined with the commander.
Other than that .. Quite solid! I don't know much about competitive play as I generally only play with my casual playgroup for fun where games last up to 2 hours, so something like this seems pretty great, Cheers!
