Thrill of Possibility Discussion

I appreciate the fairness and honesty.
I think you should find space for Buried Alive, Assassin's Trophy, Sheoldred, Whispering One, Disciple of Bolas, Nature's Lore, Farseek, and Skyshroud Claim. Those are the cards that I think your deck would benefit the most from having.

But most of those creatures are low in power, I can get a 4 damage using Heartfire that also sacrifices a creature that can hurt the target opponent instead of just creatures too. 5 damage if I sacrifice Footlight Fiend instead (I haven't replaced this card out with any haste creatures because of its versatility, it can get 2 1/1 creatures out of the board or when it dies, it can also damage the opponent, giving an extra synergy for Chandra's Spitfire .
I like the idea of Thrill of Possibility to make the deck more consistent, but I'm not sure what to give up.

Something to consider that I've run in Cavalcade decks are Fling and Thrill of Possibility . With Fling being able to be cast at instant speed, getting a big Chandra's Spitfire and then throwing it at the opponent is usually a game-ender. Doesn't take much to do it either.

Thrill of Possibility is quite good, very modular and draw, works great with Worldgorger Dragon , Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker , Karmic Guide even a Razaketh, the Foulblooded is a great recursion target and wins the game. It's on my maybe, still evaluating what comes out for it. Hoping to get a really good evaluation of Dockside Extortionist today.
I need to get Abeyance in for sure to stop Thassa's Oracle - Protean Hulk , doesn't stop Thassa's Oracle - Demonic Consultation though sadly, so not sure. Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast should probably go in to move toward cEDH.
I'm trying to decide if I should abandon a damage line (currently combo/synergy/combat damage), since I almost exclusively win with Buried Alive + Reanimate right now, and solid secondary in Leonin Relic-Warder line and tertiary with Worldgorger Dragon and strong synergies in Razaketh, the Foulblooded (pulls the Leonin Relic-Warder combo) and Master of Cruelties .
Some cards I'm considering cutting for Abeyance (at least) and Thrill of Possibility , Avacyn, Angel of Hope , Balefire Dragon , Gisela, Blade of Goldnight , Mother of Runes which would make Diabolic Intent and Mausoleum Secrets worse and maybe unplayable, Steelshaper's Gift although a haste/shroud Kaalia of the Vast into a Razaketh, the Foulblooded into a win is very good, Talisman of Conviction but feel pretty low in mana sources as-is, plus Mox Diamond isn't in my printed deck (saving up store credit at Card Kingdom), Yawgmoth's Will . I did put Aven Mindcensor in for Serra Ascendant , changes the type of pressure I can put on early. May decide to take him out, usually my strategy is put in more tutors/go for win and try and win first but the Fish is just too fast and too low CMC and too hard to disrupt. Not going as far as Burnout
Hushbringer shuts down so much of my deck (and combos), it's tough to get around, then I'll have to find removal for my own creature, but maybe Diabolic Intent it for Buried Alive and then Mausoleum Secrets for Reanimate off her, but the mana cost is too much.
Lot's to think about, likely needed Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast in too, but until Jan 24th (think that's when it becomes legal to play), not in a rush. In reality all the top commanders are anyway and piggyback on similar combos.

Completely looked over the exiling effect of Simian Spirit Guide , was thinking discard this whole time. that blows.
Any new cards catching your eye? Was thinking as for drawing and/or discarding you have: Thrill of Possibility which is similar to Night's Whisper without the loss of life, also allowing you to dump a piece such as Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker .
I noticed Funeral Rites which seems to be the offspring if Night's Whisper and Ransack the Lab had a kid. You'd get Funeral Rites lol just some cards I noticed that might be replacements or even additions.

I feel like you really want Thrill of Possibility in an izzet draw 2 deck, cause it lets you activate all your payoffs on your opponent's turn for cheap, and helps you cycle through your deck faster to look for answers to opponent's things. Otherwise I like where you're going with the list!
