Look at the top five cards of your library. As many times as you choose, you may pay 1 life, put those cards on the bottom of your library in any order, then look at the top five cards of your library. Then shuffle your library and put the last cards you looked at this way on top of it in any order.

Lim-Dul's Vault Discussion

Lim-Dul's Vault it a great way to dig for a card you want to put on top.

So I'm making a Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign deck where I'm trying to make sure that all cards revealed by the commander is always something I would like to be cast/drawn depending on its CMC parity. Currently, the deck has some 1 CMC spell cards that manipulate the topdeck like Brainstorm & Vampiric Tutor, but I'm worried those are going to be nullified by unplanned shuffling before my next combat step. For this purpose, thinking of replacing at least some of them with 2 CMC versions like Augury Owl, Omen & Lim-Dul's Vault so that I can draw those with Yennett and then cast them on my next turn to set up a better reveal. Is this an overreaction? Is Preordain good enough when Yennet casts them?

TheeRedNight I'd probably cut a 1-drop. My issue with Doomsday though is that this deck has very limited ways of fighting over removal, especially after you pay BBB for the Doomsday itself. You could very easily get one of your ninjas removed and be left with a very small deck. You could mitigate this problem somewhat by stacking Nexus of Fate in your pile (even when countered, it shuffles itself back in). I'm just a little cautious of locking ourselves out of the game by casting it, though the effect in itself is very powerful.
It's also a sorcery, so unlike Lim-Dul's Vault or Insidious Dreams (which you can cast with Yuriko triggers on the stack), casting Doomsday essentially telegraphs your intention to kill the table. That means any and all spot removal will immediately come after you, whereas with instants the threat is hidden.

ok, so first thing's first, your commander doesn't help at all with what the deck wants to do, combo off. He's way too expensive, offers little to no utility, and is all around bad. If you HAVE to stay in esper even though Breya gives you exactly what you want and red is a good color, I would recommend playing Zur the Enchanter as your commander. he is typically the go-to for esper colors. the best part about him is that he is relatively inexpensive, and doesn't requite a buildaround. All you need for him to be worth it is a few enchantments you should have anyway, things like Necropotence, Mystic Remora, Rhystic Study, etc, all provide fantastic card advantage and utility to the deck.
Tolarian Winds: this card is a worse Windfall, because normally you don't want to replace a full hand, but rather fill an empty one. windfall does this very well and messes with opponents the same way winds does.
Demonic Tutor: tutors are very good in combo decks. nuff said
Enlightened Tutor: your combo is made entirely of artifacts, why aren't you running this?
Mystical Tutor: good card
Ad Nauseam: once you get your average cmc down by like 1.75, this card is a 5 mana instant speed draw lots.
Draw enchantments (Necropotence, Mystic Remora, Rhystic Study): These are stables in any UBx EDH deck. all of them are good at almost any point in the game, and they all draw TONS of cards, with Necropotence drawing the most and sometimes digging straight to the combo.
Mana Rocks: These are pretty cost restrictive but things like Mana Vault, Mana Crypt, Mox Opal, Chrome Mox and friends will help you keep the value train going after you draw tons with spells or wheels, and sometimes allow you to win on the same turn.
Laboratory Maniac + Demonic Consultation: the way this works is that you play laboratory maniac and then play consultation naming something that isn't in your deck to mill your entire deck and win the next time you draw.
Thanks for reading this wall of text, feel free to ask me any questions!

FolkenFanel: I especially like the idea of Reveillark & Lim-Dul's Vault will definitely find some space to test them. I'm actually testing reality acid in my list but it is still a strong maybe as it sometimes work like a charm when I have my flicker pieces out or it gets instantly answered and it's just sitting in my GY for the rest of the game. Maybe I'm playing it wrong. Thanks for the great suggestions!

Oh Hell Yeah! I love me some ninja tech. I don't quite know what you have planned but don't forget Sakashima's Student although it might hurt the budget. Another card worth looking at, if you can squeeze it in your 50$ budget, is Duplicant because colorless exile on a stick? Yes, please. It's cc allows for some nice burn when ripping it off the top with our commander.
Now for some sweet budget tech. Sandstone Oracle is a flying threat that refills our hand and hits the table for 7 damage off the top of our library. I know Steel Hellkite is a popular budget option to deal with enchantments and artifacts in Grixis but I would give Meteor Golem a try. I find the dragon often eats removal on sight or gets chumped which prevents you from dealing with the problematic permanent you absolutely need to destroy. The golem circumvents all that with it's ETB ability. It's clean and recurrable.
Lim-Dul's Vault, Shadows of the Past, Read the Bones and Cryptic Annelid have a home here. Other interesting options include Mystic Speculation, Darksteel Pendant and Sentinel Totem which doubles as GY hate. Finally I would also consider Prognostic Sphinx, Conundrum Sphinx and Arbiter of the Ideal.
Anyway man. I'm looking forward to the build and video!

Thanks for the suggestion! I've actually never seen Lim-Dul's Vault before your comment and it's just oozing Dimir flavour!
I currently play in a very casual meta, and therefore I try to keep most of the cards within the theme of the deck and restrict the amount of tutors as much as possible.
I have to playtest this deck a bit more, but if I ever feel like it needs more consistency or add a few more cards which shuffle the library, I'll definitely add the card. :)
EDIT: Just noticed it's also fetchable with Dimir Infiltrator, amazing!
