Void Winnower Discussion

So this is a link to my paper Karador deck: https://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/that-was-karadorable-copy-1/?cb=1554224847
I think it has a lot of the things that you are trying to do, minus some synergies. My deck tries to grind more value from the creatures and eventually win through a fantastic win with Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord sacrificing Lord of Extinction after fueling the graveyard with Hermit Druid (the deck plays lots of basics, so it isn't as bad as it looks to the opponents) and Underrealm Lich .
Some general suggestions for your deck:
Cut the cluestones and add the signets in their place. The difference between ramping on 3 to 5 is less important than from 2 to 4.
Cards that I think should be in every Karador deck:
Pattern of Rebirth This was reprinted in UMA and is a couple dollars. If you can kill your stuff, it fetches anything at instant speed.
Birthing Pod Pod is so much value and it makes you consider your creature curve. It helps lower it a bit to give your more diverse choices on the lower end. Pod also just so happens to kill your commander (who is usually cast for 3 mana) to fetch a Void Winnower to make opponents sad.
Eldritch Evolution I am unsure if I saw this card in the deck, but this card is a baby pod that can get ANY card with x+2 mana of the card you sacrificed. You can turn a 5 drop into a better 4, or even a 7. Whatever is needed. Amazing value.

So first iteration of my yenett deck was put to the test. 3 games, 3 wins. Worth mentioning i'm playing only in paper and that our LGS is small and deck are rather casual (i believe strongest decks are like 6/10 in term of power). We tend to play long games. My build runs 38 lands (21 basics, 1 fetch), and 10 even cards. Cannot provide decklist yet. My build isn't very focused on single target removal. Thou i need to add some removal for enchantments/artifacts. No Future Sight, Sensei, Soothsaying. Rise of the Dark Realms, Anguished Unmaking i have in other decks.
Even cards are : Strionic Resonator (damn this one is strong), Swiftfoot Boots , some 2cmc mana rocks, Supreme Verdict , Wrath of God , Smothering Tithe (Can this get ban already?), Overwhelming Denial .
Since this is "casual", only wheel effect im running along this Smothering Tithe is Dark Deal .
Liliana Vess performed really well. I don't have Animatou. Jace, the Mind Sculptor is probably fine addition to the deck. Dream Cache is probably better than Frantic Search? Living Death is too risky in my opinion.
Ethersworn Adjudicator was really good in my games.
Examples of odd cards im running: Herald of Leshrac , Artisan of Kozilek , Brilliant Ultimatum , Pathrazer of Ulamog , Blatant Thievery , Void Winnower , Inkwell Leviathan , Mind's Dilation , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Platinum Angel , Angelic Arbiter
If You want to improve Yenett and make deck real nasty , extra turn spells are probably way to go (Nexus of Fate might be really strong). Old Ulamog and New Emrakul are also Odd cards. Magister Sphinx , Enigma Sphinx , Mother of Runes , Iona, Approach of the Second Sun can also be very good.
Hope this helps a little and i'll see another Yenett video on the channel :D

In regards to your interference and players disliking it, that is subjective - in a casual setting, you really do not know how the players will react. In any tournament setting with judges, the only correct course is to call a judge to the table.

would replace Sphinx of the Steel Wind with Void Winnower , as you actually have a chance of casting it if it gets stranded in your hand, and it's much more disruptive to whatever your opponents are doing

TheNocholas hi! I'm using Teferi, Temporal Archmage to untap my nonbsik lands, Mana Vault , Gilded Lotus to generate mana. On turn 4 if I have 3 lands (2 islands) and Mana Vault i can play Teferi, Temporal Archmage + Gilded Lotus and on turn 5 I have about 18-19 mana, which can be spent on cast: Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur / Iona, Shield of Emeria / Void Winnower / Consecrated Sphinx / Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite / Blatant Thievery / Expropriate / Time Stretch / Rite of Replication with Kicker / or simple Planar Bridge . I think it is strong for turn 5. There is also an strong synergy between Blinkmoth Well and Winter Orb / Static Orb . At the end of the opponent's turn I can use it to tap Stax-artifacts and untap all my lands.

For additional comparison on why Dracognax's casting cost is too low, here are some similar cards.
Kilnmouth Dragon has Amplify 3, flying, and a 5/5 body. It has an additional ability to deal direct damage based on how many counters are on it. It's casting cost is . This creature has the highest currently existing value for Amplify.
Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund has an ability to gain control of all Dragons when it enters the battlefield, with no end condition or further connection to the card. It's also a 7/7 with flying (and haste and gives your other Dragons haste). Its casting cost is .
Borderland Behemoth is the closest I can find to compare to the last ability. It gets +4/+4 for each other Giant you control, and is a 4/4 to start. Its casting cost is . Dracognax's version of this ability is poorly worded because, since it doesn't exclude itself, it's actually a 9/9.
The only reason to actually set a value other than 0 for the in Dracognax's casting cost would be to get around abilities like those on Void Winnower that prevent the casting of certain CMC spells, or to dodge a counterspell that targets a specific CMC.

Honestly, I am 100% on board with a Void Winnower cut. Even the games I have had the ideal discard into early reanimation of it, I am never as impressed with it as I am supposed to be. I have just taken it on faith from Lithium's enthusiasm but I am glad to see it gone.
I can also understand Erebos as a meta call. I don't see very much in the way of Aetherflux Reservoir but I will keep Erebos in mind if it ever does crop up.

Reassembling Skeleton is a spicy one - a card I used to run in stax&pox, but cut for this build. It's mana positive which is neat. Yeah, I could see it working. I'll find some room later today.
My inclusion of Erebos is a hate card against storm & reservoir decks in my meta. While Tainted Remedy is a stronger stax piece, it has no evasion/way to generate ca (plus there was an erebos in my binder to jam into the deck.
It was cutting Void Winnower as by the time he hit the field my opponents had played their 0 drops & were playing all of their cantrips- the saltstorm of me sitting there with winnower and they'd be ignoring it made it feel cuttable.
If you feel like readding it - be my guest. I'll do some research into other possible hatebears & maybe write up a section on it.
