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.

Good call! The tutors in the Maybeboard are there cause I currently do not own a copy or can't afford one at the moment. They're certainly going in once I manage to secure them.
Hatred never crossed my mind as I was too preoccupied with combo base finishes for this deck. It's an interesting alternative to win.
Aminatou, the Fateshifter was in my first cut but I subsequently axed her because, being creatureless, I've very limited ways to protect my Planeswalker from combat damage (besides blocking with Yennett). My view of Aminatou, is that she needs to stick around longer to accrue incremental value from the use of her abilities. Her "Blink" ability is useful to help me reset my Mana Vault and Grim Monolith when I was play testing her, so that's a plus point.
Liliana Vess gives me instant value by tutoring a card to top of library (usually Nexus of Fate or Expropriate) for Yennett to cast them for free. Tezzeret the Seeker functions as a 5 CMC artifact tutor that can retire after he fetches me the desired artifact, so I'm not too worried about protecting him.
Thanks for the suggestions and help. Keep the ideas flowing mate, looking forward to more "quirky and odd" ideas for this eccentric deck.

Let me know how your deck worked out for you. It's always interesting to see different interpretations of a deck.
If mill is your thing, Rise of the Dark Realms is a great include. Body Double's great too since she's odd. You can also consider Beacon of Unrest and Extract from Darkness. In fact Beacon coupled with Isochron Scepter + Mystical Tutor let's you reanimate an artifact or creature every turn.
Mine has been working great so far and if I manage to drop Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign early, the game is mine for the taking if my opponents are void of answers. I remember one game where I had her out on turn 2 and casted a "free" Expropriate on turn 3 wIth her attack trigger!

I took a look at it. Not bad but on another note. Genesis Wave at 10 mana will only put 7 things into play Primal Surge will at average put 30 things i to play. So if i were to take Primal Surge out for another card i was thinking Sterling Grove or maybe Leyline of Anticipation but if notbthose 2 then what would you suggest. Perhaps another big bomb spell, but what spell? Expropriate? Time Stretch?

maelstromboli I saw your list when researching on the deck on Tappedout. Nice deck for sure!
As you rightly pointed out, both our decks currently don't have a Mana sink outlet for Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combo. In order to keep my deck creatureless, there're some outlets which I don't have access to, like Walking Ballista.
Aetherflux Reservoir is viable for me, essentially a 4 card combo (Mana rock producing at least 2 mana, Scepter, Reversal and Aetherflux Reservoir). I'm still exploring more alternate routes to victory so this is one possibility.
I used to run a Jeleva Doomsday deck but it became dry very fast and I'm losing friends even faster. LOL. Now am just exploring unifunky builds like this one.

Thanks for the suggestions!
Paradoxical Outcome was there because I wanted a home for the card and thought it could serve double duty as protection and a way to reset ninjas. However, holding up 4 mana often didn't feel great. Sakashima's Student seems like an obvious card, I probably skipped it since it was a bit expensive. I added Expropriate since I figured stealing blockers can back breaking in this deck, and I already had the card.

I like this version a LOT! it's more value oriented, and that's a good thing!
Two things though.

berryjon, aggro as you describe it - more midrange than full aggro - seems to be quite true for every other archetype. With 100 cards and few ways to mitigate the singleton nature of the format, every deck is forced to upscale. You cannot reliably combo off with infinite turns on turn 1 in this format, or turn 3 or 4 for that matter.
For example, an infinite turns combo deck might run combos like Panoptic Mirror + Time Warp, which would be laughed at in a modern event; but because both pieces do something on their own and it increases your consistency, you run them. Or a card like Expropriate, which is quite powerful. Sure you can play like a legacy deck and run Omniscience and Show and Tell, but you only get one copy - you have to dedicate mana, turns and deck space to cards that find those pieces.
TLDR: Not only aggro decks are more midrange.

Jace, Cunning Castaway and Library of Leng combo with stacked Yuriko triggers so you can +1 Jace, attack, Vampiric Tutor Expropriate to the top of your deck, and for each ninja dealing damage you can have each opponent lose 9 life, discard Expropriate to the top of your deck, and repeat. If that's something you're into.
