Daarkest Here're some of my recommendations:

Vampiric Tutor - Replace with Insidious Dreams . Cost more to cast but still lines up the top of your library at Instant speed.

Expropriate - You can consider Savor the Moment . Skipping the untap step doesn't hurt Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign as she has Vigilance but it'll affect your lands and mana rocks.

Grim Monolith / Mana Crypt - Leaving these out will hurt the tempo a little as they're key pieces for me to power out Yennett very early (Turns 1 - 3). Feel free to throw in any mana rocks in their place. Dark Ritual does provide the 1 time mana boost as well.

Mana Drain - Feel free to replace with any other counterspell of your choice. I'd still try to keep the CMC to 2 or less so we can imprint it on Isochron Scepter when needed.

Scroll Rack - Scroll Rack has 2 functions in this deck.

A) Puts "Bombs" I drawn back on top of the library - Agonizing Memories or Hidden Retreat are possible replacements for this effect.

B) Help filter and rearrange the top of my library - Any cards with Scry effect would work here, e.g. Seer's Lantern .

Which card you select as replacement is up to you and your preferred play style.

Hope this helps. Cheers!

Flooremoji Ooh, I really need to put Enlightened Maniac in there. There's room for some blinking shenanigans and it's very on-theme. Thanks!

I eventually decided that I could do without artifact recursion, given that none of them are crucial to the game plan and counterspells could possibly stop them from being removed. It's losing the enchantments that would hurt more, I reckon.

Armillary Sphere might be a good include, I'm not wholly sure what to cut though. 4 mana fixing feels less important to me than 2-mana ramping, and Seer's Lantern and Commander's Sphere provide other benefits. I'll see if I can juggle them around a bit, see what I prefer.

I recently switched commanders from Sivitri Scarzam , who I only used for colour identity (occasionally cast her to slap on Phyresis and Whispersilk Cloak if entirely out of options). Nebuchadnezzar felt more on-theme as the old man from the story, so I put him in and never actually cast him. But I suppose you could get to infinite mana and infinite untaps to bin everyone's hand forever, so I'll edit that in :)

For stealing your opponents' stuff you should include Hostage Taker and/or Sower of Temptation

Crystal Ball is just better than Seer's Lantern , it does twice as much for half the activation and same casting cost.

Rather than using Deep Freeze , Darksteel Mutation is better for taking out someone's commander as it survives through a lot of boardwipes that would help free that trapped commander. For everything else, there's Reality Acid which gets around indestructible.

You could probably cut 2 mountains for Great Furnace and Darksteel Citadel for Goblin Welder swap targets. Both would also make Mox Opal more consistent once you get it.

I use Scroll Rack in my Aminatou deck and it performs well there but its a control deck that sits on cards so has more ammo to swap and dig deeper into the library. I suppose it could be good following a wheel effect or right off the draw but in general a Krenko deck dumps its hand quickly and that any benefit from Rack is probably pretty spiky. It'd either be another wheel or a much worse Seer's Lantern.

Have you tried Experimental Frenzy for additional card draw? I run it and Dark-Dweller Oracle and I've liked how they've worked. With the quick mana you run [I have not splurged for Mana Crypt and the like] I would think they'd perform well for your deck as well, probably a little better with the additional resources to fuel them.

Ogre Battledriver could add to the number of haste effects. I may have to include Fervor and/or Mass Hysteria in my own Krenko deck as no matter how many you have, it seems there are still times you can't buy one when you need it.

And not sure how you feel about the card but I've liked Hellrider as you don't even have to worry about if your attackers can all get through or having the combat fogged as they're just dead.

Overall I like the deck, I think I will be making some changes to my own version based on your list. Happy combo-ing!

These are some of the cards I'm going to take out soon for cards that synergize better with my token strategy. Also I'm taking out some of the mana rocks in favor of more lands. End Hostilities, Obelisk of Naya, Mirrorpool, Healer's Hawk, Wakening Sun's Avatar, Stone Quarry, Seer's Lantern, Hedron Crawler, Gruul Guildgate, Fleetfeather Sandals, Slice in Twain, Siege Wurm, Gruul Signet, Boros Guildgate.

You have enough lands which enter untapped that you don't need Amulet of Vigor, especially if you cut Azorius Chancery for something like Adarkar Wastes or equivalent.

More ramp is always a good thing, cards like Chromatic Lantern, Darksteel Ingot, Magnifying Glass, Seer's Lantern are all good if you want odd costed rocks.

I don't think you need Alhammarret's Archive - you're better just focusing on raw card advantage rather than conditional advantage. Phyrexian Arena is an awesome source of more card advantage.

Also, Rout it probably one of the best wraths you can run. It feels much better than Fumigate.

@TheMaggotPrince Seems like an ok card depending on your meta. Being a primer, I've opted not to include narrow answers.

Budget replacements for Guile and Rack include Crystal Ball, Darksteel Pendant, Lifecrafter's Bestiary, and Seer's Lantern. Bestiary is honestly almost good enough to make the cut in my build. The rest are at about the same power level, and you'll have to play around with them to figure out which suits your deck best.

First of all, you have 1 extra card in the list, so you will need to cut a card. On to some suggestions! I am not sure what you budget is but I'll try to mention some budget and non-budget suggestions.

For extra, repeatable blink effects, Erratic Portal and Cloudstone Curio are great additions. Blade of Selves and Minion Reflector give you short lived tokens that ETB as well.

You run a lot of miracles, which are great! But you are running very little top-deck manipulation. Sensei's Divining Top, Crystal Ball, and Seer's Lantern are great. Scroll Rack is also a solid option, but I'd caution against using it without a lot of ways to shuffle your library. Ponder and it's ilk are other possibilities.

Lastly, your curve is a bit high for just 36 lands. I'd suggesting adding one more. 37-38 is generally where you want to be with your avg CMC.

Good luck and happy deck building!
