Hey man have you considered Reptilian Reflection it can provide you a blocker earlier than Ominous Seas and gives you a clock to distract from the combo or just win outright if something happens to disrupt the combo.

I may put this together and give it a shot, sounds interesting and a fresh take on cycling is always nice.

MZROSE1985 I don't think it works with Unpredictable Cyclone the way you think it will. Since it searches through your whole library to find a card that shares a card type, you will always get an enchantment out of it - you don't need to run a critical mass. At the same time, you can't use Escape Protocol or Reptilian Reflection to trigger Unpredictable Cyclone because you need to cycle the card, not cast it.

And since Sharknado triggers off of any non-creature spell, not just enchantments, you'll get sharks with all of the above additions besides Drannith Stinger!

Feel free to ask questions here if you're unsure: https://tappedout.net/mtg-questions/

Why do you need Escape Protocol? The best-case scenario you can flicker a Crystal for neutral mana, but with no ETB effects I don't think it's worthwhile. I think you probably don't need Reptilian Reflection or Ominous Seas, either, because they're slow and/or awkward. If you cut them, you'd guarantee hitting Shark Typhoon or a second Unpredictable Cyclone by cycling either enchantment, which is definitely more powerful than getting a free Ominous Seas.

I'd suggest cutting the above, freeing up 7 slots, and adding some of the following:

+2/3 Boon of the Wish-Giver - 1-mana cycler, and if you run 2+ you can guarantee hitting the other copies off of Unpredictable Cyclone which is... better Ancestral Recall!

+1 Drannith Stinger, because it makes sure you hit Yidaro, Wandering Monster off of Cyclone.

+1/2 Shredded Sails, which is very good at the moment against Luminous Broodmoth, Witch's Oven, and it cycles anyway.

+1/2 Scorching Dragonfire to help survive early and hit Planeswalkers like Tef3ri

Good luck have fun!
