You can activate an ability or cast a spell in response to a lethal spell such as Lightning Bolt. For lethal combat damage, your last opportunity to add anything to the stack would be the declare blockers step.

TheDevicer - I don't know if it is the kind of resource you are looking for, but the ManaBase, or at the Metaworker section, is intelligent enough. The article I linked is about upgrading a Teferi list, and his comments are very insightful. Apparently, he hangs around the cEDH subreddit.
As for the GAAIV list, would you mind providing a link? I have some free time now and can look it over.

LandDestruction.com is down for the count. People are working on archiving the information.

Additionally, what functions do the Bloodghast and fetchlands serve? There does not seem to be a combo for Ghast except maybe Dread Return (which is no longer in the main). Since Chainer actively uses life as a resource, the negligible amount of thinning achieved by the fetches does not seem worth the life.

No problem. Also, an interesting interaction to note about Deathmantle is that it overrides creature types (though you have to manually equip it) so the creature won't be a Nightmare.
I would have thought Liliana of the Veil would be better than Vess. It hits more players, so there is more fodder, it edicts Brago, Narset, and the like, and it dumps your fatties. I may not be assigning enough value to the Seal effect and ultimate, but the deck seems to be running a high enough density of tutors that it should be fine.
I thought the Boots and Greaves were to protect Chainer, since he is incredibly annoying to recast. Unfortunately, I am a bit biased toward protection, since my meta runs more removal than I see in other lists. We have a few more creature decks than normal.

Are Liliana Vess and Magus of the Coffers worth their slots at 5 mana? I think Nim Deathmantle and Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed would be better worth it. Xiahou Dun can act like Sidisi and Deathmantle combos with Grave Titan and Ashnod's Altar. It also works with Priest of Gix and either Altar

Does anyone have any news about Yidris? I have not come across him since he released. Does the deck rely on him at all, or is he like Jeleva? How is the green affecting the deck? Will these questions ever truly be answered? The world may never know.

Protection prevents Damage, Equipping, Enchanting, Blocking, and Targeting from sources of the protection type. You would need to block with a colorless creature or use Kozilek's Return because it is colorless. Pyroclasm is a red source, so the damage would be prevented.
Other ways to remove a Champion that has landed include board wipes such as Wrath of God and Shatterstorm, sacrifice effects such as Liliana of the Veil, exile effects such as Final Judgment, and mass bounce such as Cyclonic Rift.

Please link all cards in your question: Leyline of Sanctity
At any point or zone in the game, an object is one of the following: a spell (only on the stack), a permanent (only on the battlefield), OR a card (everywhere else). Therefore, no, a creature permanent is not a spell because it is not on the stack.
The Leyline has no interaction with an attacking creature since you do not target a player when you attack them, so combat will happen as usual.

The deck looks fine. Dumping random cards in your bin should be okay as long as you have already deployed enough mana. Competitive EDH players already run Gamble, so I don't see a problem with Draw-4s.

All the raiding!!!
Both seem decent. I don't feel like being the one to choose. I prefer to just gather the information.

Here is a good Silas Ren + Kydele list I found. Keep up the good work.

Yep, she and Narset can't be accelerated out fast enough reliably and they are decks that have a bunch of clunky cards that don't belong in openers.

I decided to steer away from From the Ashes. I find that most non-HD decks run enough basics that it does not punish them enough. I chose to attack mana rocks with Pulverize, but that increased my Mountain count. I think my list focuses more on Omnath token beats with disruption, while yours punishes the enemy for everything.

This is where I'm at so far. I put some of my thoughts in the description.

Gates88 - Agreed. Personally, I think a hybrid of Azusa and Ruric Thar would make a decent Omnath deck. Unfortunately, I suck at deck-building (from relative scratch). But when it comes to tweaking, I know my nipples (heh, I made a funny). I'll copy the deck and tune it up. See you all in a few hours :P

Some >=decent lists for Tier 3 (some are not fully tuned or are kind of old due to the commanders not receiving attention in recent years, but they were the most competitively built lists I found...and I raided Shaper's deck folder after getting bored of sifting through the pretend-competitive players' decklists that litter the Internet):
