I'm not sure I like the amount of auras included. They work counter to Wydwen's biggest strength, her return to hand ability. Cards like Open Into Wonder, Artful Dodge, Slip Through Space, Taigam’s Strike, & Shadow Rift don't have the lasting impact, but can also fuel the addition wincon of Rise from the Tides or Runechanter's Pike.
Consume the Meek is another good, cheap sweeper, and an instant. Its listed at nearly .$50 here but I'm seeing a lot of $.20 copies on tcgplayer. Barter in Blood/Innocent Blood doesn't hurt the player either, b/c there's so few creatures and Wydwen can save herself.

you need Serum Visions and Sleight of Hand to help assemble your combo pieces. also, Slip Through Space is strictly better than Shadow Rift. if you add black, you can add discard spells to get rid of your opponents removal so they cant just immediately kill your creature when it attacks. it also gives you access to Tainted Strike so you have another 1-mana "damage doubler" so you don't have to run those 2-mana double strike cards. i actually have this same kind of deck posted as well if you want to take a look at it. just click my username and look for the grixis OTK.

Hey fun deck. I got an idea or three..Infiltrate, Artful Dodge, Slip Through Space, Shadow Rift, Spellheart Chimera, Runechanter's Pike.... Teferi's Veil + Obliterate is an old school combo that can save your creatures and give you extra ETB triggers. It might not be good enough, but it sounds hilarious enough. Archaeomancer, Izzet Chronarch, Charmbreaker Devils. I love how Sharding Sphinx goes exponential if you can get through with the thopters. It might be cool to have Thopter Spy Network too, since you are already using thopters. Happy gathering!

Thank you Snacrifice and Entrei, those are some really good suggestions. Dauthi Embrace and Shadow Rift are exactly what I am looking for in pollitical-ness. Cards I can generally use for my benefit, but they can support an opponent should it be needed. I'll definitely try those out.
Magosi, the Waterveil is also an interesting idea that I never really thought of. I'll give it a shot.
As far as budget restrictions and the competitiveness of my pod goes, I really don't want to go much higher in cost than it is right now. If the card fits perfectly though I would definitely consider it. My pod really ranges in terms of how competitive it will be. I would say most of the players in it are pretty skilled, but the decks can range from a "5 color-red deck" to highly tuned Yidris and Meren decks. The main thing is we usually refrain from infinite combos.

Hmm... How competitive is your pod?
Given your current budget restriction, Ponder, Preordain, Peek, Gitaxian Probe and Shadow Rift could end up being pretty useful for this deck. The rest really depends on what other kind of decks are in your pod and how much money you are willing to drop
