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.

Volatile Chimera doesn't work as you aren't drafting so it's a vanilla. Where's Whims of the Fates? My favorite "this game is now decided by luck" card.

Yeah, you're right. I missed the part where it said draft. Thank you. =)

I like the deck! Always love stuff that generates crazy board states.

One quick note is that you DO get the token when playing Desolation Twin off of Spawnsire of Ulamog as it says "Cast any number..."

Yay! Thanks for pointing that out. For some reason. I had it in my head that it was a "put onto the battlefield" effect.

Hey so just wanted to drop a quick note IF something like Propaganda is out on an opponent's field, and Ruhan rando's into it, it is BEFORE declare attackers, and if you don't pay the cost it basically counters Ruhan's randomness and allows you to attack whoever you want. Similarly in response to his trigger you can tap him, he obviously can't attack when tapped normally, so the effect will basically fail, and then if you can also untap him before you declare attackers, going into combat, you can then attack whoever or whatever you want.

Exact rule I'm talking about Show
