Cat. What? Huh?

So I decided to try my hand at a Rando deck using Ruhan of the Fomori. My big gimmick for this is to just constantly mess with the entire board state in a fun and/or unpredictable way that both hurts and helps everyone. Any and all suggestions are very welcome, as I know there are much more mischievous and roguish minds than mine on this site. My last deck, Damia, isn't as fun for my friends as it is for me as a mill machine, so I'm hoping to just make heads spin in a good, fun way with this one. I have a lot of cards in sideboard, so if you have suggestions on what to mainboard, please share. Thanks! =)

Some devious ideas I put in here:
Cat: Cats are devious. My big generators are White Sun's Zenith, Ajani's Chosen , Ajani, Caller of the Pride, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, and Regal Caracal. Jareth, Leonine Titan is a good blocker, and I'm thinking about mainboarding Scoria Cat , but still on the fence because of the mana curve right now.

What? HUH?!:
1) Coax from the Blind Eternities pulling in Spawnsire of Ulamog. IF I have Nykthos, Shrine of Nyx copied with Vesuva, and/or Doubling Cube copied with Mirrorworks, I should be able to reach 20 mana to then pull in Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Pathrazer of Ulamog, It That Betrays, Desolation Twin (won't get the twin, but it's still a 10/10), and Void Winnower. Whenever I get around to buying Kozilek and Emrakul, I will be adding them in, too. My cat tokens also rely on the copy power for Nykthos and Doubling Cube.

2) This deck has a lot of gambling against the odds with cards that can turn to your favor, your detriment, their favor, or their detriment. Desperate Gambit , Capricious Efreet , Crooked Scales , Game of Chaos , Fiery Gambit, and Search for Survivors are great examples of this element.

3) Group Slug: This deck has just enough unpredictability and helpfulness that I think it may last long enough to do some group hate with Volcano Hellion, Bloodfire Colossus , Devastating Dreams , Mages' Contest , Rite of Ruin , and Lavaball Trap for something a little more... pointed. I have Manabarbs in sideboard to help speed the game along.

Group Effort!:
Order of Succession and Scrambleverse will make sure everyone shares permanents. Sphinx of Uthuun and Manifold Insights are probably going to serve as a good indicator for how much people are enjoying playing against this lineup.

Sun Quan, Lord of Wu + Rolling Earthquake (Sideboard)).
Golden Wish is a fun way to pull in a wild card, and I should probably include Burning Wish in this board, too.

Oh right, and cats.
