Can I get a hand with building a Yidris chaos deck? I think it is done but I need some help just trying to make sure the deck is a viable and not too late game focused and I don't really have an accurate way to test the deck without buying it first. Your help would be really great. Cascading Chaos, Decent into Madness

FYI this combo doesn't work, exploration increases the amount of land you can play per turn. bouncing it doesn't change the total number of lands played that turn. Cloudstone Curio+Amulet of Vigor+Gruul Turf+Exploration+Need for Speed:
Play Gruul Turf (GT), it untaps, get an elemental token, tap it for , bounce it, play Exploration, play GT, untap and tap and bounce it, get an elemental, play NfS, bounce Exploration and so on. Infinite tokens!!

Ashmed Thanks, and I have some card choice debates to start with you!
Learn from the Past or Mnemonic Nexus? learn draws a card which is good, nexus is graveyard hate and recursion in one. both instant which i really like. Both are 4 drops which i seem to be getting a lot of now.
Mizzium Skin seems out of place, I don't need my commander to live to do well. A lot of the other creatures are virtual copies of others so any one piece isn't vital, unlike your talrand deck I assume.
I agree that running multiples of good cards is a smart move, I guess I'm just not sold on Enigma Drake yet. the deck has played pretty well with the token angle, also Runechanter's Pike turns any creature into a drake.
Guttersnipe is a really good card, I just don't know what to cut for it. Right now i have 19 cards that aren't instants or sorceries. Taking any out is hard, that's why i like asking folks for help. I'm too attached to all the little trickery nonsense to really think hard about cutting them.
I could probably create a sideboard to test out new ideas and create different gameplans. Like cut the Whir of Invention, Aetherflux Reservoir and the Elixir of Immortality for Enigma Drake, Spellheart Chimera and either Mnemonic Nexus or Learn from the Past. Learn something from those cards and see how they play different.

I really like Treasure Cruise over Plea for Power. Look at all your 1 and 2 mana instants and sorceries that are hitting the graveyard, those power out treasure cruise super early. Frantic Search could be good too, free spells are good i hear. Fellwar Stone could be good to. untapped mana rock over Coldsteel Heart and there's a good chance at least one of your opponents are running some of your colors.

What about the cuts I suggested? Do you really need Gaea's Anthem? And if you like that effect why not add more cards that it benefits ie. Snake Basket. You don't need a lot of mana to make the basket good and with all your better anthems it dosen't seem bad.

If you liked kor cartographer you'll love Solemn Simulacrum
Aetherflux Reservoir can't find a home in here???
having Bloodshot Cyclops as redundancy seems good
Gift of Immortality wasn't good?
Marshal's Anthem could be good
Everflowing Chalice is another good mana rock
I really like the Knollspine Dragon in your maybeboard. maybe over crumbling colossus?
Thawing Glaciers is great for mana hungry commander decks.
What was wrong with Spinerock Knoll? seems great for you deck
July 5, 2017 9:08 p.m.
Enlightened Tutor gets you land tax when you behind, protects you with ghostly prison, and draws cards with staff of nin. all around greatness
Angelic Overseer just seems like a big dude, no extra value. Possible cut?
I'm not sure i get the Approach of the Second Sun. you plan on casting it once, then wait until 7 turns pass and hope noone kills you?
If you're going compeditive Armageddon seems like a win if your ahead on board
July 5, 2017 8:51 p.m.
some more possible cuts could include
Maybe add some ninja's for value with your commander's ability?
Snake Basket is on tribal theme
July 5, 2017 8:36 p.m.
Sword of Kaldra is a way to ping and exile with your commander
Is Defiant Bloodlord good enough? Maybe cut it for curve reasons
Braid of Fire is VIP with olivia. just use her ping ability in your upkeep for no downside! Yeah no mana burn!!!
Metallic Mimic seems good
Worn Powerstone could be good, power out your expensive threats
Pawn of Ulamog gives you a little extra value, might be better than some common vampire
another possible cut could be Hall of Triumph, your other anthemn effects are stronger
July 5, 2017 8:24 p.m.
Battlegrace Angel possibly not good enough
Bloodbond Vampire for a back up karlov. this is iffy
Chant of Vitu-Ghazi, remember to block then tap for convoke.
Contemplation, combo off!
Honor the Fallen - on theme graveyard hate that's also a combat trick
Mastery of the Unseen this needs a lot of mana to be great, but maybe you'll get some good use out of it. It's kinda iffy though
Resplendent Mentor this could be an all star if you go heavy white
Royal Herbalist combat tricks for karlov
Exsanguinate is good
Use all the life you gain for benefits, like card draw! Ambition's Cost, Ancient Craving, Graveborn Muse, Night's Whisper, Ob Nixilis Reignited, Phyrexian Arena, Read the Bones, Dark Tutelage, Underworld Connections
or recursion Phyrexian Reclamation
Some possible cuts
Sacred Cat dosen't seem strong enough for commander
Orzhov Charm What mode are you adding this for?
July 5, 2017 8:05 p.m.
rereading your comments, someone suggested the Nim Deathmantle combo an i think it's a good add, you already have every other piece just need the equipment
is Basilisk Collar in here for a board wipe with Goblin Sharpshooter? If so i think you could cut that. That dosen't win you the game, just kills stuff. which gives you time but still seems like the weakest card.
maybe Simian Spirit Guide, possibly for a land?
Your deck looks very tight, I like it!!!
July 5, 2017 12:04 p.m.
I like it, looks annoying!
Mana Severance could be cute.
Simian Spirit Guide is a faster narset
I feel like Relentless Assault dosen't do enough extra to be worth it
no Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded????????????
maybe a Windfall dump your hand early then refill

isaelis Thanks for your comments!
Opal Palace is in because it turns Rith, the Awakener into a 7/7 at least and therefore a 3 hit commander kill on somebody. I kinda like the challenge of running no Command Tower as well, I need to put the deck together and get mana screwed a couple times before I wise up and take your advice
The reason I'm running all the mana dorks is so if i hit with Rith I will have a bunch of colored permanents to get extra tokens with, also it helps with Glare of Subdual and other creature matters cards. Again I'm probably going to make the deck, get wrathed once and lose everything and not do anything for the rest of the game to make me realize the error of my ways. But until then it's all concepts
Kazandu Tuskcaller! That's a budget card I'm looking for! I'll throw it in the maybeboard to remember it when i start making adjustments.

I just added Jace's Sanctum and it put in work today. Do you think the enchantment is better than the cheaper creature?
I'm really not aiming at storming off in one turn, do you think hitting the table multiple times with Guttersnipe and bringing attention to myself is worth the damage I deal?
July 4, 2017 8:47 p.m.
Your decks look great! I've been on a budget building kick recently as well and have built a Jori En, Diving on a Budget deck that I would appreciate a look over from the master budget deck creator! Thanks in advance
July 4, 2017 12:21 p.m.
Looks like a great deck!
could Peek be worth it? maybe over slip through space?
Retraced Image is a cute ramp spell. you reveal an island and put it into play
Pongify is another kill spell, maybe over vapor snag?
Into the Roil over disperse?
Lightning Greaves over swiftfoot boots?
do you like Anticipate over telling time?
would you want 2 mana counterspells over some of your 4 drop ones? like Arcane Denial over discombobulate for example?
I've been debating putting Aethersnatch in my Jori En deck, have you had good expirences with it?
If you have the time I've been working on my Jori En, Diving on a Budget and i think it plays similar to your deck, maybe you could take a look?
July 4, 2017 12:01 p.m.
I really like the list! I'm jealous of the mana curve for sure!
No Snow-Covered Mountain? Why the artifact lands? They seem to open your mana base to artifact destruction for no benefit?
It looks like your deck is mostly blue cards, might be worth taking out Vivid Crag for a blue-red dual land (Izzet Guildgate) that way you can run out of vivid counters to play your nonsense and still have access to red.
Is Mistfire Adept good enough? Do you win most games with commander damage or random beats backed up with your commander?
Treasure Cruise could be good with all this spells going to the graveyard, delve the full amount!
July 4, 2017 11:46 a.m.
I really like your list! I have an Izzet deck I'm working on as well and if you can spare a look I'd appreciate it, Jori En, Diving on a Budget
So for your deck,
Could Wild Ricochet have a place in here?
you have 7 sorcery spells you're giving flash with Hypersonic Dragon, is it still worth it?
how has Mana Flare preformed for you? doubling mana for your opponents seems risky, but i would like to hear your expirence with it
