Neheb, the Eternal is for the infinite combats Aurelia, the Warleader in conjunction with Aggravated Assault. After you deal 6 damage due to Aurelia's double combat phase, you can go into infinite combats and infinite red mana.
Read Ward of Bones, you are denying them of resources. For , that is easily accessible in colorless mana or burst rituals, a T1 or T2 Ward of Bones stops people cold.

Been going over this list a lot lately, so I'm just gonna write down my thoughts here for posterity.
Squallmonger is a nice redundancy for Squall Line that can be found off of Worldly Tutor and Chord of Calling; it's a bit more expensive for non-infinite kills but I think it has some nice extra utility.
Soul's Majesty and Garruk, Primal Hunter as more "draw a billion"s may be worth considering, since we run Momentous Fall/Rishkar's Expertise/Life's Legacy already. More redundancy is never a bad thing! Staff of Domination is another outlet that works with Magus of the Candelabra, or just a draw outlet with a bunch of mana.
For cuts, my recommendations would be Oblivion Stone, Krosan Grip (if we're adding more efficient interaction), Nissa, Vital Force, and possibly Homeward Path? Although I'm not certain exactly how many Mind Control effects you face down in your meta. Anything that has the ability to be a Forest but isn't instead should be putting in some serious work.
Anyway, I could be off base on some of these recommendations, but all in all I really enjoy the deck. Keep up th

So I am new to cEDH and decided to build a Yisan deck that is semi-budget (aka about $100 over what I already own, and luckily I own a good number of the expensive core cards: Ancient Tomb, Cavern of Souls, Craterhoof Behemoth, Dryad Arbor, Gaea's Cradle, Natural Order, Seedborn Muse, Staff of Domination, Strip Mine, and the 4 fetches.
I got here due to your reddit primer and I'm trying to fuse together your budget/non-budget builds since mine will be somewhere in the middle. I have 2 questions:
Should I even bother with the stax package if I can only afford to pick 1-2 pieces due to budget ... or should I just focus on getting the solid creature/enchantment core? Is there a critical density of stax that you need for any pieces to be worth it or is a 1-by-1 acquisition a fine upgrade strategy?
Also, just looking at this list and the verse chain ... would Elderscale Wurm or Regal Force be a better fit at 7 to either better interact with some combo decks or draw loads of cards before you're about to go off with craterhoof? Excuse the ignorance since I haven't played this yet, but what is the justification of Hornet Queen over any other 7cmc? It just doesn't seem to be that great of a card and since both of those other 7cmc guys are more budget friendly, I'm assuming there's a reason for running it that I'm just missing.
Thanks for all the work on this and the primer!

Can't the Geoscope only tap for 3? don't you lose one mana if you spend 4 to make 3?

TheNocholas that is a very good combo. The only reason I didn't include it is that I don't want to focus only one player. Instantly killing someone often gets you focused by the rest of the table. Though I'm thing of taking out Staff of Domination and a few other redundant cards for grave yard recursion. Any recommended cards?

I quite like using Autumn's and Silence in my own Selvala, I even run City of Solitude to reinforce that on combo-turn, my spells won't be countered or combo broken. I run Teferi's Protection as well, but our lists are a bit different. I run the same combos, sub the Illusionist's Bracers and added Staff of Domination and Sword of the Paruns, as well as less Selvala-centric cards, IE I don't run Well of Lost Dreams, because I want not to lose sight of the combo, and I also run some other infinite-mana outlets, with Duskwatch Recruiter Flip being a favorite.
A lot of the rest of our differences are quite simple, I lowered the CMC of my deck by dropping cards like Argothian Elder, Mana Reflection, Alhammarret's Archive, Nissa, Worldwaker, Privileged Position, Defense of the Heart, Skyshroud Claim, Tempt with Discovery, Well of Lost Dreams, Oracle of Mul Daya, Karametra's Acolyte, Ezuri, Renegade Leader and a few other mana dumps like Elixir of Immortality in place of tutors like Sylvan Tutor, Chord of Calling, Inventors' Fair, Survival of the Fittest, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard, Fierce Empath, Woodland Bellower, as well as ramp like Sol Ring, Mox Diamond, Chrome Mox, Boreal Druid, Avacyn's Pilgrim, and card draw like Sylvan Library.
I can write up the list and send it to you if you want, it fits at around tier 2.5, and is a fast-acting, 'Dumbstorm' (gives opponents cards to get itself cards) combo-list, with high-amounts of interaction, extremely low curve, tons of tutors and consistency, and is unexpected in high-tiered tables.

Haha no worries, from what it seems you are going for a synergy build. To answer your question yes it is the same reason why Wurmcoil Engine is considered over Ancient Stone Idol. You want to have additional effects once the creature cost goes over the 5cmc mark. For like big colorless creatures, Platinum Emperion might be a considered card, or if you ramp a lot you can consider running the Eldrazi as they are a huge threat and can trigger Jhoira's ability. They are on the pricier side though Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, and Kozilek, the Great Distortion.
If you want huge advantage Metalworker is a card I would advise to get your hands on before the price spikes. Staff of Domination is another one of those cards that can go hand and hand with Paradox Engine.
To protect Jhoira I would recommend adding back in Lightning Greaves, it still goes with your synergy, and it is tutorable. The other option would be adding in counterspells but that would dilute your synergy if you want to add in counterspells. Unless you want to add in ones that go along with theme such as Stoic Rebuttal

Mind's Desire is so insanely powerful it's the storm payoff for the deck quite often. It can pull you from dinky storm line straight into win the game.
Ballista is fine but it's sorta redundant, Oona gets the job done most of the time. If we are in that price range, I'd suggest Staff of Domination.
