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.

Found this through your reddit thread.
Your deck description doesn't really fit what it is that you seem to be doing with the deck. You say you want to combo out quick, which is fine you do you. BUT, if thats the case why are you playing Expropriate ? Or Part the Waterveil ? They're not bad cards but they don't contribute to attempting to storm out and kill with a Grapeshot . Speaking of Ignite Memories tends to be a more consistent Storm kill at lower storm counts I have found since each copy can deal more than 1 damage per copy.
Storm lists need access to two things to storm out, plenty of cards that draw cards and make more mana. You have a good start here with cards like High Tide and Turnabout . Next step would be stuff like Doubling Cube for your storm turn, but otherwise I think you're good there.
My Biggest general suggestion is that you need more than two wincons. The two that I notice are your Grapeshot and Laboratory Maniac . I like Maniac, I used him once too, and I would still advise Ignite Memories over Grapeshot . Psychosis Crawler is a good way to win games too just by drawing most your deck you win without having to cast a storm spell. Talrand, Sky Summoner and Young Pyromancer give you a way to still come back at someone if you fizzle. Mind's Desire makes it near impossible to fizzle though.
Granted my list is years old, I left the game for a while after I made it, but There may be some ideas you could snag from my old Mizzix storm build. It was pretty consistent T4-6 kill.

Since you added blattant thievery - why don't you play Expropriate ?

hkhssweiss, frankly, I think thats enough removal. Ill playtest as it is closer to the end of next week, to have more insight on what might go wrong. But at this point it turns into control deck, and I don't like it. And Sunder ... Will be great in Patron of the Moon deck, but I dont see it here. I'd rather get my hands on Expropriate at this point.

Grim Monolith / Mana Crypt - Leaving these out will hurt the tempo a little as they're key pieces for me to power out Yennett very early (Turns 1 - 3). Feel free to throw in any mana rocks in their place. Dark Ritual does provide the 1 time mana boost as well.
Scroll Rack - Scroll Rack has 2 functions in this deck.
B) Help filter and rearrange the top of my library - Any cards with Scry effect would work here, e.g. Seer's Lantern .
Which card you select as replacement is up to you and your preferred play style.
Hope this helps. Cheers!

Vampiric Tutor , Expropriate , Grim Monolith , Mana Crypt , Mana Drain , and Scroll Rack are the main ones that are out of budget. The other extra turn spells are pretty expensive in addition to the shock lands (I already have most of those anyway.)

My Yennett deck has similar stats. I've managed to go off on Turn 1 only once, with a God draw. Turn 2s are possible too but Turns 3-5 are more common. I've a section in my Primer that covers what kind of draws would facilitate comboing off early ("As Easy as ABC").
The 1st spell I'd tutor for, is Expropriate too. By now, players are wise not to grant us more extra turns but ramping us by 3 extra lands is almost lethal too and many scoop if this is casted on Turns 2-3.
Given that I don't have access to green ramps, I rely heavily on artifacts, so I run all Signets, Talismans and Grim Monolith .

On a good hand T3 is the average, with any sort of tutor. As usually the go to is straight into Expropriate . Averagely nowadays with interruption it's on T6 with most hands.
I slowed the deck down, due to removing Mox Diamond to go into my Kess deck, as well as Gemstone Caverns so my bursty plays aren't as often. Since the addition of counterspells, it's been more resilient and with the reuse effect of Seasons Past I gain incremental advantage with every extra turn. Even if I don't go infinite turns, by the time I start the chain I have an overwhelming advantage and 1-2 players are usually killed since Intet is a big 6/6 flyer. I'm also curious on how your Yennett deck does as I wanted to build her, but decided against it since it would be exactly as your deck list :P

Also something else that fits the subtheme here is Expropriate .
