Gleeock, yes, Timesifter's been great. I run it in my Jhoira of the Ghitu chaos deck (average CMC: 5.17). I end up taking about half of the extra turns, which helps with suspend hopefully without feeling too oppressive to the rest of the table.

Instead of playing all the extra turn spells and MLD you'd expect to see in Jhoira, I run Perplexing Chimera, Omen Machine, Possibility Storm, and Wild Evocation. My ultimate goal is to cast Eternal Dominion, preferably with Hive Mind in play.

Hive Mind doesn't cause the opponent to cast spells.

To preface, chaos decks in general draw a lot of ire, especially when it is chaos for chaos's sake with no direction toward victory. I personally have no issue with the chaos style, though resolving a Warp World or Scrambleverse is definitely a chore haha. Anyway it looks like you aren't going for anything too egregious here, so you should be fine in the eyes of your opponents. Even so, I might describe the deck as "unique/oddball effects" rather than "chaos" just so opponents don't get the wrong idea and try to eliminate you first because they think your goal is Hive Mind + Undying Flames lol.

As far as the general, have you considered Arjun, the Shifting Flame ? He makes it so that every time you cast a spell, you get a new hand. Pretty chaotic if you ask me! You could fill the deck with unusual effects (like you've done here with Jhoira) so that neither you nor your opponents will know whats coming next. Tasigur, the Golden Fang could be an interesting general as well, since the fact that an opponent chooses the card you get makes it both chaotic and interactive. Ruhan of the Fomori and Atla Palani, Nest Tender are pretty chaotic as well.

These cards might interest you: Chaos Wand , Mindmoil , Stolen Strategy , Charmbreaker Devils , Tomorrow, Azami's Familiar , Shared Fate , Telemin Performance , Proteus Staff , Endless Whispers , Infernal Genesis , Bottomless Pit , Thieving Amalgam , Evolutionary Leap , Oath of Druids

@mortifolkmurphcaster: Hm, maybe you're right. Sometimes I see nothing of use in my opponents hands when I'm using Glasses of Urza or Sen Triplets ability. Windfall would give "me" fresh cards to steal :D.

And you're probably right with Hive Mind and Duress although it could be a funny political tool.

Bxbx Hey no problem, thanks for the reply!

Yeah I feel ya, such is the life of an EDH deck. In fact I'd say that's my favorite part, the curation.

The approach I was planning on taking was to Hive Mind with Duress effects, ideally with Telepathy in play. I've been too afraid to play it though because I fear everyone using their copy of Duress or duress like cards to discard my own hand. I know that's what would happen in my playgroup anyway.

I would give Windfall a try for a couple of reasons. It's an incredibly cheap card for the amount of cards it draws you on average, which I'd guess to be about 5. You probably net 0 sure but you see 5 new cards and more often in EDH it nets positive. Not only that it's a great political tool, when everyone's behind the player with 10+ cards in hand, you just made two allies if you Windfall . The chances of drawing someone into their game winning combo is slim and you just gave the table answers to that combo if it even exists. On top of that your deck is equipped the handle the disparity it may generate. And if you're looking at the tables hands as often as you are what better disruption for your deck then to wheel the table if you're in a bad spot?

Maybe its just me but I would like to see a Hive Mind to make your opponents cast Doomsday . I doubt most decks are set up to play around that.
