Shizo, Death's Storehouse Discussion

Shizo, Death's Storehouse is solid as long as there aren't to many black or artifact creatures around.

Waste Not seems like a waste in a deck focused on the combat damage/cascade instead of wheel effects (Kydele at the helm). I'd also remove said wheel effects Windfall, Whispering Madness and Reforge the Soul (specially since you won't be cascading if you cast it for the Miracle cost). Maybe keep Wheel of Fate as a target for 0 cmc. And did you seriously go for Notion Thief + Wheel effect (aka Leovold's reason for being banned?). This would be a reason to really hate on your deck (which you said you would try to avoid this time).
Consuming Aberration is a strong and annoying creature to deal with, but it does seem out of place here. Is your plan to kill everyone via combat/cascading or do you want to mill everyone out? He does so much better in Chaos Yidris/Storm Yidris...
Hellkite Tyrant would be better off in an artifact heavy deck (even though you have a bunch of mana rocks and stealing artifacts is always fun, I think it doesn't impact the game as much as you'd like).
Damia, Sage of Stone requires you to wait a whole turn before doing something. So, unless you go for some extra turn cards, I'd rather have a bunch of effects that drew me cards immediately or increased the number of cards drawn each turn: Mulldrifter, Thoughtcast for the Affinity, Scour the Laboratory for the Delirium, Recurring Insight is almost guaranteed to draw you 6+ cards since it has rebound and Pore Over the Pages untaps some lands for you.
Deepfathom Skulker, Mask of Memory, Bident of Thassa, Tandem Lookout all provide extra card draw from combat. Staff of Nin provides a good passive card draw (and the 1 damage basically means opponents' creatures have 1 less toughness if needed).
Null Profusion is one of the weird cards that could work really well with Yidris. If you manage to drop a Thought Vessel or Reliquary Tower AFTER it, the hand-restriction is nullified and it's important to notice it grants you a draw for playing lands as well.
Did you purposefully let extra turn cards out? Better than netting an extra attack step would be netting an extra turn.
Boundless Realms could also be interesting since it grants a cascade into 6- and ramps you a lot in the mid game (which is very important in your deck). Zendikar Resurgent would also work really well, granting an extra draw per creature spell and doubling up your mana, even though it doesn't thin your deck as Boundless Realms does.
Whispersilk Cloak and Trailblazer's Boots seem unnecessary. Most of the time there'll be someone with not enough defenses to stop your Yidris. And if there are, you'd be better off clearing the path instead of going through and relying on a good cascade to turn the tables. You could also try Intimidation or Shizo, Death's Storehouse since Fear often translates into unblockable (you just have to attack the right person)
Savage Ventmaw is mostly used with Aggravated Assault or Hellkite Charger for infinite (or near infinite) combat steps. Since you don't enjoy infinite combos, you could go for the Hellkite (it's also cheaper). Metalwork Colossus works pretty well with a good number of mana rocks.
If you feel like spending some money, Scroll Rack allows you to "choose" your cascades.

To be honest, I'm not super worried about giving Karlov of the Ghost Council evasion; he's a fairly new addition to this deck, and I have plenty of ways of dealing direct damage without him. He's mostly there for the exiling, and if the board is in a good position, I'll attack with him. That being said, Shizo, Death's Storehouse looks like a nice addition.
I had Vizkopa Guildmage during the early days of this deck, but paying each time I wanted to give something lifelink or drain health seemed kind of steep.
Necropotence looks good; I just don't own it yet, so there's that.

Depending on how artifact and black heavy your meta is you can use Shizo, Death's Storehouse to help get hapatra through blockers. Also, while it may not make snakes, Necrogenesis is strictly better than pharika. Other than that it's a sweet deck!

I honestly would play 4 Lightning Bolt, even with the synergy of Liliana of the Veil + Bump in the Night. You're discarding Bloodghasts and extra Thoughtseizes. The flexibility is stronger. With 4 Terminate and 4 Lightning Bolt, you don't need the Fatal Pushes or Bump in the Nights, yet still maintain the consistency and flexibility of both.
I'd also play an Olivia Voldaren in the sideboard for games against decks not running Lightning Bolts of their own, such as Tron. The ability to steal large creatures or ping tokens will win you games 2 and 3.
The deck posted by hwagner has Shizo, Death's Storehouse. I've also been running the Kamigawa legendary lands in my Modern decks and have absolutely loved them. It means you have to play Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet in the main.
