Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign
Legendary Creature — Sphinx
Flying, vigilance, menace
Whenever Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign attacks, reveal the top card of your library. If that card's converted mana cost is odd, you may cast it without paying its mana cost. Otherwise, draw a card.

Does anyone know in what order Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign’s, Prognostic Sphinx’s and Aqueous Form’s effects would resolve? Particularly, would you be able to scry and THEN use Yennett’s triggered ability, or would her effect go first, and THEN scry?

So I'm making a Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign deck where I'm trying to make sure that all cards revealed by the commander is always something I would like to be cast/drawn depending on its CMC parity. Currently, the deck has some 1 CMC spell cards that manipulate the topdeck like Brainstorm & Vampiric Tutor, but I'm worried those are going to be nullified by unplanned shuffling before my next combat step. For this purpose, thinking of replacing at least some of them with 2 CMC versions like Augury Owl, Omen & Lim-Dul's Vault so that I can draw those with Yennett and then cast them on my next turn to set up a better reveal. Is this an overreaction? Is Preordain good enough when Yennet casts them?

Sorry. That last comment was bad let me try again:
I would remove at first glance:
Azorius Chancery Dimir Aqueduct Forge of Heroes Orzhov Basilica Conundrum Sphinx Geode Golem Jeskai Infiltrator Loyal Subordinate Night Incarnate Ninja of the Deep Hours Phyrexian Delver Silent-Blade Oni Sphinx of Uthuun Varina, Lich Queen Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign Yuriko, the Tiger's Shadow Skull Storm AEthermage's Touch
These I chose either for the simple fact they don't go for the plan or are too slow. There are better cards that aren't that expensive.

I would suggest your more removal like Hero's Downfall or Toxic Deluge. Anyway, looking forward to see how this deck develops, Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign is a pretty interesting commander. I am considering her for a sphinx tribal.
