At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player reveals a card at random from his or her hand. If it's a land card, the player puts it onto the battlefield. Otherwise, the player casts it without paying its mana cost.

Wild Evocation Discussion

I would cut:
Creepy Doll: An okay deterrent but 5 mana is a good chunk for this effect.
Lorthos, the Tidemaker: Not the best giant sea creature for your deck. Ideally you only pay 2 mana to cast this but then you need 8 mana for its effect. 8 mana would be better spent 95% of the time suspending 4 cards.
AEtherplasm: You have better Jhoira replacement effects already in the deck. You are dependent on your opponents though for this to help you.
Stormtide Leviathan: This shuts down quite a bit of your own creatures. Unless you go strictly island walk and flying then it should be cut. Also a good swap out for your maybe board Ulamog if you own him.
Knowledge Pool: I love this card. Though, outside of Lavina decks and chaos it isn't that good. Once an opponent steals one of your Eldrazi this feels awful.
Wild Evocation: Not bad. Fits theme but you have quite a few cheating effects outside Jhoira. This one seems more expensive and can sometimes help your opponents more.

Awesome build! I'm a big Purphoros fan and I've been debating about how to find the sweet spot between dragons and artifacts with Purphoros, and I think you've done it (or are close to doing it) here.
I had the following cards that I wanted to point out to you as possibilities, and I'm curious what your thoughts are around them:
Ashnod's Altar: Combos very well with both Myr Battlesphere and Nim Deathmantle, creating infinite ETBs and mana. It also works great as a way to gain mana if you can't keep your big creatures around after sneaking them out. Lastly, you can sacrifice your opponents creatures when you combo with your steal effects, like Molten Primordial
Heirloom Blade: I need to test this more, myself, but this is great in a deck that wants more draw options and, specifically, wants to draw creatures. You can use it to find dragons or artifact creatures in most cases, but can also be used with golems, humans, and goblins.
Zirilan of the Claw: Another card in your maybe board that I think deserves more attention. This can function as another "commander" type card that can get our deck going, easing our reliance on purph-daddy a little bit. I consider this another Sneak Attack card.
Other fun ideas: I like putting a little disruption in my Purph deck, so I've added some of the following cards. I don't know if they can fit in here, but I think they help cover some of Purph's weaknesses while still being "fun" cards to play with and against.
War's Toll: Stop people from countering our Purph-daddy.
Wild Evocation: Great for us, messes with combo players.
Insurrection: Alternate win con that works well against players who like to build wide creature decks.
Pandemonium: A great way to get some additional value from our creatures while, hopefully, helping our opponents board clear one another until we get to our mid-game spike in power (hopefully we don't become the target of this card, though!).
Indomitable Creativity: I'm on the fence about this one, but it's a fun/flexible removal spell that also allows us to trade artifact tokens or mana rocks for stronger things later in the game.
I hope these were at least interesting to read! Again, I love the deck as is, but I wanted to share some other ideas as well.

Gleeock, yes, Timesifter's been great. I run it in my Jhoira of the Ghitu chaos deck (average CMC: 5.17). I end up taking about half of the extra turns, which helps with suspend hopefully without feeling too oppressive to the rest of the table.
Instead of playing all the extra turn spells and MLD you'd expect to see in Jhoira, I run Perplexing Chimera, Omen Machine, Possibility Storm, and Wild Evocation. My ultimate goal is to cast Eternal Dominion, preferably with Hive Mind in play.

theartision Cool! Alright, well if it's budget AND chaos or budget AND coin-flip we're talking about then.... As much as dislike the chaos archetype I do know some budget cards then to maybe consider, again these are just suggestions so if it's too against the grain of what you're going for feel free to ignore them:
Humble Defector - at least gives you draw, and is friendly in EDH so some politics involved.
Pendant of Prosperity - allows you ramp and again is political
Goblin Festival - keeping in theme to the chaos, flipping, and budget.

I have a yidris chaos deck that is hands down the most fun deck I have ever played. Have you considered: Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder , Shared Fate , Storm Cauldron and Burgeoning , Havoc Festival , Choice of Damnations , Timesifter , Sands of Time , or Master of Predicaments ?
If you want a chaotic wincon, Reins of Power has never failed to disappoint.
