Artifact Creature — Egg
Imprint - When Summoner's Egg enters the battlefield, you may remove a card in your hand from the game face down.
When Summoner's Egg is put into a graveyard from play, turn the imprinted face-down card face up. If that card is a creature card, put it into play under your control.

Summoner's Egg Discussion

First, a couple suggestions for additions:
Delaying Shield can give you immunity to an attack, and then transfer damage to an opponent. You can even play table politics, have someone nova strike you, allow it to go unblocked, and then gift this prevented damage to a larger threat.
Illusions of Grandeur gives you 20 life. Once you transport it to an opponent, they must burn their mana, or sacrifice and lose 20 life. Delusions of Mediocrity is a worse version, that lacks built-in removal, but is a bit more budget friendly.
Summoner's Egg is a fun little card that provides a bit of mystery to your opponents. One option I have seen is using cards such as Leveler to imprint on the egg. Personally think this is a bit too complicated for a win condition (two cards + transfer + artifact removal + only deals with one player) in competitive play, but the game of Russian Roulette inherent with Summoner's Egg is quite enjoyable for more casual groups.
As for your comment on your forum thread about your running 118 cards and needing to cut some... I think you should start by taking a look at the lands you are running. You seem to have double-added a bunch of them. This should get you down around 100 again.

While I do like a lot of the combos & the cards you've packed into this deck, I think this deck still has quite a few weaknesses:
1) How do you deal with commander hate? i.e repeated destruction (aside from re-casting it and Sylvan). If you don't have Mazirek, I don't think this deck will go anywhere.
2) Still needs more tutors; your combos are great but I don't know how reliably you'll get them with Sidisi/Razaketh/Diabolic (did I miss something?). How about Protean Hulk, Defense of the Heart or Tooth and Nail? You could always tutor up a combo like Mycoloth + Sylvan Safekeeper or It That Betrays and Sheoldred. Though I know this deck likes it slow and steady, you could also go off on a chain such as Defense of the Heart / Tooth & Nail -> Protean Hulk + Sidisi/Razaketh, sacrifice Hulk -> tutor for Animate Dead (to recur Protean later), protean trigger to tutor any combo 6cmc, Animate Dead the protean, Sacrifice it, grab an Eternal Witness to get your Animate Dead back, rinse and repeat-> Razaketh/Tutor/Sac for Deathrender or Ashnod's Altar -> Razaketh/Tutor/Sac for any creature you want onto the battlefield, starting with token generators (Abhorrent Overlord or Hornet Queen, and sacrificing tokens for mana/tutor and cast all of your colorless artifacts. Akroma's Memorial and Craterhoof Behemoth = GG! It might cost you 20 life or so but it sure will be fun (for you)!
3) Weak to board wipes, takes awhile (unless you have good luck) to reach full potential. Things like bitterblossom just aren't as fun as cheating something like Abhorrent Overlord or Hornet Queen. Also try Living Death just in case someone wipes you.
I would also advise removing some of the weaker mana accelerators: Birds/Elvish Mystic/Deep Shadow and replace it with more....sac-related fodder because they feel pretty useless drawing it late-game.
Fun cards to consider: (Apologizes if already included)
It That Betrays, Pernicious Deed, Savra, Queen of the Golgari, Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder, Akroma's Memorial, Spore Frog, Carrion Feeder, Volrath's Stronghold, Oran-Rief, the Vastwood, Hardened Scales, Walking Ballista, (control: Contamination, Bojuka Bog)

I might be misunderstanding what you are going for here, but I don't think the "Dunce Cap" combo works. Infinite Reflection says it turns nontoken creatures into the enchanted creature and Hunted Phantasm makes five 1/1 goblin tokens.
And why useSummoner's Egg in the combo? To kind of conceal what you're doing or save it for another turn?
Sorry if I'm missing the point. The deck looks reaaally fun though. That's a fun way to lose friends and play Magic.:)

Phyrexian Obliterator+It That Betrays. Buried Alive+Victimize as the enabler 1. Summoner's Egg+Eldritch Evolution as enabler 2. Mix with some Glissa, the Traitor for lols. Put Lure on obliterator for a happy playgroup. Outside these dickbag interactions they are just solid ways to cheat fatties into play before people are ready to deal with them.
Title wise it should reflect what a toxic relationship is about or who this mean black widow harlot is. Its just like a woman to get you into a fight with an obliterator
