Long-Term Plans Discussion

I think Niv-Mizzet, Parun isn't going to be that great in the deck for the 3 blue 3 red mana cost, I'd swap it out for Goblin Electromancer

Also Long-Term Plans could be a good tutor in the deck with you potentially being able to get to it with Elsha.

Soothsaying can act as a 'worse' divining top in the deck

Lastly whenever I see Thousand-Year Storm I would always recommend Baral's Expertise since it goes crazy especially if you get copies of it and end up free casting a lot of stuff.

Just some straight upgrades I can see while keeping some budget in mind is

Divination out for Think Twice , Deep Analysis , or Frantic Search

Getting better triggers off Keranos you could swap some cards out for stuff that lets you scry during your upkeep like Eyes Everywhere or Galvanoth

Young Pyromancer could be a good add to make more tokens and it costs less to get out than your other token makers.

I've found in my own Izzet deck that mana ramp really needs to be a big part of your deck since you don't ramp easily. I use Curious Homunculus  Flip since he can tap for mana and flips into a prowess creature that reduces mana cost.

Tutors are always good to add and Long-Term Plans is a tutor in blue that will let you search for any card and not need to reveal it.

Expansion / Explosion is a good card since it will let you copy a spell or act as a big blow out spell if you have nothing else to do.

One card that I love that synergies with Thousand year storm is Baral's Expertise since if you get copies of it then you are bouncing tons of stuff back to people's hands and getting free casts into the storm.

Another card similar to Sensei’s diving top is Soothsaying which could help with the mana sink if you have nothing else to do during a turn and shuffling your deck if you ever need to.

Speaking from experience Baral's Expertise after a few spells with Thousand year storm can be completely nuts and I would highly recommend it.

Frantic Search is another card similar to Snap that will untap your lands to help increase your storm count.

With Smothering Tithe in your deck maybe some cards like Windfall and Time Reversal would be good to add in so you can load up on treasures to and get a new hand of cards.

Long-Term Plans is a blue tutor that allows you to search for anything that could go well with your commander since you could actually cast stuff off the top to get to that card.

Update: swapped out Mirrorworks for Long-Term Plans to have another way to get to Psychosis Crawler.

i could argue Long-Term Plans is an acceptable tutor in blue. if searches for any card, you don't have to reveal it, and it's instant speed. the only catch is it's 3rd from teh top, but pretty much any of the basic blue cantrips like preordain, ponder, and brainstrom can get it.

How do you consistently get food chain in your hand?

The only tutors I see you have for it are Drift of Phantasms and Long-Term Plans (which still requires more work to get it in your hand). If those are your only tutors for it, then statistically you have to see 33 cards before running into Food Chain or one of its tutors. I don't see how this deck can see 33 cards and still have mana open to cast the tutor and food chain consistently by turn 4.

Am I missing something?

dingusdingo on Budget Kefnet Turns

I enjoy the Kefnet Turns build, haven't seen it before for this commander and I think its rather neat. You should focus exclusively on assembling your win and remove the extra side cards, like your mill sub-theme. I also think you should replace expensive removal and interaction with cheaper pieces, as you're less likely to cast them off the top with Kefnet. I also think you should add in more ways to discard and also tutor to top of deck. Your combo requires a handful of specific cards and also to be in a specific spot in your library, so topdeck manipulation and tutors help immensely.

My complete list of changes would be

Dismiss -> Counterspell

Everdream -> Ponder

Exclude -> Arcane Denial

Precognitive Perception -> Concentrate (You're never copying the addendum with Kefnet)

Supreme Will -> Mana Leak

Thought Collapse -> Mental Misstep (Every deck runs 1 cmc spells so Misstep is unbelievable value for EDH)

River's Rebuke -> Wipe Away

Zndrsplt's Judgement -> Vapor Snag (That card is hard to link to :O )

Mistfire Adept -> Long-Term Plans

Riverwise Augur -> Sleight of Hand

Niblis of Frost -> Mystical Tutor

Drowned Secrets -> Serum Visions

Fraying Sanity -> Preordain

Precognition Field -> Careful Study

Psychic Corrosion -> Fabricate

I think its worth noting

That to combo off, you need Library + Aminatou's Aug + Dino + Turn card + Commander. That requires 4 cards outside your commander, 3 of which are exactly specific. Finding another enabler or outlet to reuse your turn spells or another way to put cards on top would help the consistency of this deck a lot. Running more draw and tutors to topdeck also lets you value copy a turn spell to start chaining turns, and even if you don't hit an infinite loop getting 3 or 4 extra turns will get you much closer to establishing the lock. You should shave off alternate wincons and focus on getting infinite turns, because once you have them you've won.
