Future Sight Discussion
4 days ago
You need a way to continually blink Ramos, Dragon Engine. A particularly good combo is Isochron Scepter and Cloudshift with Paradox Engine. You should look at other cards to add counters such as Quest for the Gemblades. With Deadeye Navigator you should look into Peregrine Drake, Great Whale, and Palinchron for infinite mana to continually cast your stuff. Future Sight to manipulate the top card of your library. Sensei's Divining Top works wonders with it. Freed from the Real, Argothian Elder and any land that produces more than one mana such as Simic Growth Chamber.

Kess, High Doom thats my grixis deck. This was the first real EDH deck I built so its kinda just a pet project. Also The commander has my name so I kinda have to play it now and again. This deck would be better without the Future Sight stuff but every other deck I have is Doomsday so this one isnt.

Why bother playing esper? Why not just play Grixis and have Kess as your commander, because you will have more access to wheels and artifact destruction. Your deck seems it would benefit a lot from it. Because the main purpose of the white in this deck seems to be Angel's Grace and Enlightened Tutor, while with red you could be running things like Wheel of Fortune and Winds of Change which will get you more synergy with Notion Thief. I also think that Future Sight is too high of CMC and it is a fairly dead card when you Ad Nauseam. Search for Azcanta Flip is probably better for you.
Fragmentize is a good card for you. So are some of the more expensive blue wheels. And if you are trying to storm off anyways why not just play Mind's Desire, you will win with only a 5 or 6 storm count.

You want to cut Gilded Lotus. It's the wrong tempo for this deck. Also if your going to be as into the Future Sight/Sensei's Divining Top plan as you are with both Magus of the Future and Future Sight you want to add Trinket Mage, Etherium Sculptor and maybe a Cloud Key or Fabricate. Now I would ask you what is the reason for Grixis? Without a Wheel of Fortune or a Yawgmoth's Will I really think going to Esper and getting access to a Enlightened Tutor and Silence would help your deck out a lot. Other cards you should add are Dark Ritual, Cabal Ritual, Mystic Remora, Mental Misstep, Preordain, Merchant Scroll and maybe Demonic Consultation since its a quick easy way to win with Laboratory Maniac. You also have way to many lands. Decks like this run no more than 30.

An interesting list but I am confused by some of the inclusions and more confused by the lack of some others. Hopefully some of the following advice will be useful to you.
Is there a purpose for the extra turn spells? Unless you have a way to loop them infinitely or do shenanigans with them the way Edric, Spymaster of Trest does, I don't see the purpose.
I am also not a fan of Grapeshot in EDH. Tendrils of Agony is fine but Aetherflux Reservoir is by far the best storm win con available currently because it gains you life if you aren't winning with it and requires the fewest spells cast to have a lethal storm count to kill the whole table in a 4 player EDH game.
I would also find room for Paradox Engine and the Isochron Scepter/Dramatic Reversal combo. Both are absurdly powerful and aren't useless on their own. Alternatively, as you are already running cost discounters and Sensei's Divining Top, you could add it Future Sight for another win condition. And if you intend to keep the Basalt Monolith/Power Artifact combo, you might as well add it Grim Monolith for a second target for the Power Artifact and because the card is incredibly powerful on it's own. yet another option for a win condition would be Metalworker (which is absurd acceleration with how many artifacts you run) + Staff of Domination.
I would also swap Day's Undoing for Windfall. Windfall may not always draw you as many cards but it doesn't end your turn or exile itself which makes it infinitely better most of the time And considering you are running 3 Wheel effects already, I would consider Notion Thief as another win condition.
Another note is that your mana base is weak to nonbasic hate such as Blood Moon/Back to Basics/etc. I would add in more fetch lands (you can run any of them because they don't have color identity) for consistency and swap out any of the lands that could potentially enter tapped. Tap lands in cEDH can mean the difference between a win or a loss so unless it does something incredibly powerful or functions as a combo piece like Dakmor Salvage does in The Gitrog Monster, I always advise not to play them. Adding a few basics shouldn't hurt as you are only in 3 colors.
Interaction is also incredibly important in cEDH. especially with how heavily this deck relies on artifacts, if your opponent plays a Null Rod or Trinisphere on turn 1, you need to have answers to it. Vandalblast is my personal favorite in red for artifact hate but there are plenty to choose from. Cyclonic Rift and Chain of Vapor are great options to keep you alive against hate cards and the latter can also work as an absurd ritual for you if you are storming off by allowing you to bounce a bunch of your net positive mana rocks and replay them. Counterspells are also great utility for these things. Mana Drain, Force of Will, and Pact of Negation are three of the most powerful but I am also a huge fan of Spell Pierce and Mental Misstep.
And if you truly are going for competitive EDH, Ad Nauseam is one of the most broken cards ever printed. You will need to lower your CMC so that it doesn't kill you but drawing 30+ cards at instant speed is absolutely insane for a Storm deck. Necropotence also functions as another option to dig for combo pieces, albeit much slower and at a far higher risk than Ad Nauseam.
And if you want more information or just to learn more about cEDH, [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier is a great resource to find the most powerful versions of certain strategies or just for random ideas. I personally run a modified version of Paradox Scepter Storm: cEDH Primer as my primary competitive deck (which funtions similarly to how your deck does so it may be a decent source for inspiration).

@Thorbogl thanks for your comment!
I do own one copy of Snapcaster Mage but it currently resides in another deck. I would be stoked to eventually pick up a second to drop in this list ;)
In the beginning I was considering going the reveal-my-topdeck route with cards like Oracle of Mul Daya, Future Sight, Courser of Kruphix, and maybe even Garruk's Horde. I kind of like to keep my opponents guessing so I decided against the idea. Oracle of Mul Daya is really freakin' good and my friends have suggested it as well. I'm hoping I have enough top deck manipulation with Sensei's Divining Top, Scroll Rack, Sylvan Library and Mirri's Guile to make rashmi run smoothly. I do run Vizier of the Menagerie in my animar deck which is almost 50% creatures haha
