Order of Succession Discussion

I've looked at trimming white and/or black multiple times over the year and a half I've spent using and tweaking this deck, but I can't find a way to retain the frankly insane ramp this specific manabase offers. Lack of mana actually isn't an issue I have to deal with often, which is why I've taken to following the IT maxim of "If it works when all the rules you know say it shouldn't, don't touch it" and am rather unwilling to mess with the manabase.

Psychic Battle has been on my 'include this' list for a while and will be slotted in as soon as I actually remember it exists when trading.

Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder is both a creature, which I've themed the deck not to have, and something which, when played, allows the opponents to mentally assign the deck as being a very odd storm deck. It doesn't matter that the assumption is wrong; it allows the more serious players I often face online to form a plan against the deck.

Perplexing Chimera isn't included because it is both a creature and, given what my relevant large spells are, usually more effective against me than the opponents I'm facing.

Endless Whispers was actually in the deck, however it was cut because I play this deck primarily online, which means I have no clue what I'm facing and the decks tend to be more serious/less creature heavy. Order of Succession is perfect for the one thing I actually want it for: messing up the many, many decks who rely almost entirely on their command in the early/mid phases of the match. If I were playing this physically, I'd definitely swap them back.

Witch Hunt is a placeholder for Psychic Battle, though I might try putting Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder into that slot just to see if it's worth dropping the no creatures theme to include it.

Looking good :D There are definitely a ton of chaos effects, so while I would drop Order of Succession, Mindmoil, Telemin Performance, and Witch Hunt for Endless Whispers, Yidris and Friends, Psychic Battle, and Perplexing Chimera, it really depends on what type(s) of chaos you want to cause, and how much of each type if multiple types. I find using the custom categories to be very helpful in looking at the deck to see what effects I have too much of and what I don't have enough of. For example, you could aim for 10 cards that draw you more, 10 cards that ramp and smooth your mana, 7 chaos cards that switch control of stuff, 7 chaos cards that make people's instant/sorceries target different things than what they want or get copied, 7 aikido cards, 3 board wipes, 4 cards that protect your stuff, 7 cards that change board states drastically, and 7 cards that help you cast more stuff. Those number can be tweaked as the deck is built, but building it that way let's your decision making be easier (it's easier to cut a card from 7 slots than from 62 slots), and ensure that you don't have a hand full of cards that all do the same thing that isn't chaotic enough for a particular board state (diversification is easier when you know what diverse effects you want).

Also, I will say that with only four white cards in the deck, I would be thinking about whether or not I want to change the commander to the aforementioned Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder for chaos in the command zone and a bit of an easier time with mana.

Thoughts?

Order of Succession, yes, that's perfect!

Betrayal, Endless Whispers, Order of Succession, Mana-Charged Dragon could all be interesting things to add. Kazuul, Tyrant of the Cliffs and Crown of Doom are good incentive to make other people targets. Djinn of Infinite Deceits is also really fun to flip the tables with.

Some cards I definitely want to think about putting in and looking to see if I have copies of

Cards I think I'm willing to cull:

I will probably pull out Braids, Conjurer Adept too, albeit I've been itching to play her in something ever since I picked up a copy. On the fence about it because I can be.

Probably should add in some more draw too. Thinking Blue Sun's Zenith could fit in among other things

There are some other cards I might trade for value, but won't be used in any deck I am either making or predicting I will build.

ElendVenture on Winning? Who cares? CHAOS!!!

It seems to me that a different commander would be suited to this deck, especially with the preconceptions that come with Jhoira of the Ghitu. Since chaos is your goal, have you considered Arjun, the Shifting Flame? It adds an element of unpredictability to the game and lets your move quickly through your entire deck without putting things in your graveyard.

Speaking of chaos... Game of Chaos is hilarious. So to is Order of Succession, Thieves' Auction, Braids, Conjurer Adept, and Gate to the AEther.

Card draw and refilling your hand/everyone's hand seems like a theme for the deck too. Perhaps Day's Undoing, Wheel of Fate, and Dragon Mage?

Also, Homeward Path combos very nicely with Perplexing Chimera.
