Good start, I love these guys!

I like that you included Fling and Thud.

When I built these partners I ended up cutting most of the fat (the bad coin flip cards like Wirefly Hive for example).
Other cuts I'd recommend: Two-headed giant's wording doesn't work with your commanders (says heads/tails not "win"). Sorcerer's Strongbox is strictly worse than Tidings or... maybe perhaps Opportunity even in a coin flip deck. Crooked Scales is just wayyyy to mana hungry. Boompile will kill your commanders and maybe draw you a card. Ral Zarek will likely NEVER ult in multiplayer, but he's good if you put more high value rocks in your deck and can occasionally open the door for Okan. Creepy Doll eats up the 5 drop you'd rather use for either commander and usually doesn't get the chance to block.

Honestly you don't need to pack too much coin flip to make the deck work.
I'd focus on copying the effects to repeat coin-flipping for better value. You can even use cards like Strionic Resonator to copy coin flipping.
I highly recommend cards that provide Multiple combat phases for Okaun, Eye of Chaos such as Savage Beating, and Relentless Assault. If you go the multiple combat phases route, check out any card that also says "at the beginning of combat" like Loyal Drake so you can the most value out of your turns.

You need some card draw :O

Read the Bones, Tidings, Concentrate, Sign in Blood

And some graveyard stuff!

Cemetery Reaper, Zombie Apocalypse, Gisa and Geralf, Cemetery Recruitment, Victimize, and Living Death might be a good field wipe for ya.

I feel like Storm the Vault would be a good addition. Your deck could get this card flipped very quickly and the mana boost it adds is huge.

I'm not a fan of Tidings as there is better card draw out there for blue. For example Reverse Engineer may be 1 less card but a much better fit cmc wise.

However, if your willing to explore other card draw options I'm a huge fan of Jace Beleren. Consistent Blue card draw is always nice.

lagotripha - More card draw was one thing I was considering, but idk if I should just add some more Divination or add new cards. I was maybe thinking Blue Sun's Zenith. Tidings is also obviously really good value for its cost, but 5 mana sorcery doesn't look appealing to me. I like Opportunity better. As for Think Twice, I really don't know how I feel about this card. It seems odd to me, and when I look at it, I don't think it's amazing. But I do know that people run it, and I can see why. The split mana cost can be very good, but then I look at it again, and see a 5 mana draw 2. But then I see synergy with Mana Leak and Dissolve, as they share mana costs. I've never tried the card before, but I'll definitely try it out now.

I think you should shoot for more card draw and cut some of the mana rocks. Low cost draw spells like Read the Bones Night's Whisper and Telling Time can help you hit land drops and gain card advantage for chromiums ability and higher cost stuff like Opportunity Deep Analysis and even Tidings (if you don't mind the sorcery speed) can ensure you can constantly fuel chromium. Some graveyard interaction could also be nice, to ensure you aren't wasting the things you discard. Crystal Shard could also be a nice way to protect chromium when you can't discard. Its nice to be able to save him, then recast him with flash without inflating his mana cost. I also recommend Batwing Brume for the memes

Dumgoldfish124 - Haha don't worry, when I first saw Tidings I thought it was broken, but then I noticed the sorcery speed.

As for Spell Snare, I haven't had much experience with it, as I've never played against it, or with it. But knowing the big 2 drops in modern, cough Tarmogoyf cough Dark Confidant cough Snapcaster Mage... It would probably be impactful. I personally wouldn't play it however, because just the feeling of having a counterspell in your hand, that CAN'T hit the thing you want to counter, just feels awful. But 2 drops are very powerful in modern, so I'd definitely say it wouldn't be insanity to try it out. If you do, tell me how it goes!

LumpyMilk I didn't notice that Tidings was sorcery speed, now I feel stupid. Thanks for pointing that out! Also, I know it is situational, but what do you think about Spell Snare? Personally, I like due to the great disruption to tempo it causes to the opponent.
