cool combo with famished paladin! never seen that before.
if you feel like you want to go in heavier on a 3 card combo there is always Behold the Beyond , which i think is pretty decent in general, but i guess ideally you would already have something like Lightning Greaves on the field so that you can give your paladin haste so he can tap.

Hey man! I have some suggestions. Feel free to ignore any/all of them as you see fit:
I think you should include Sensei's Divining Top. It's really good at topdeck manipulation, and activating it in response to Yennett's trigger can help you find the spell you want to cast for free.
Brainstorm is underplayed in EDH, so I'm glad to see it in your list. I think you need more shuffle effects though before it becomes really busted. Generally people do this by including fetches and duals like Flooded Strand, but those can be very pricey for EDH. I think slow fetches like Bad River, Flood Plain and Rocky Tar Pit are also good, and merit consideration. Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse are also good options as cheaper versions of Prismatic Vista.
Ponder and Preordain are the other cantrips usually included in blue lists, and I highly recommend them for your list, too. Filtering your draws can let you run fewer lands, which in turn increases your hits with Yennett.
As mentioned in (3), I think 42 lands is too many. In general, I try to play 33-34 at most outside mono-green land-drop decks. Running artifact ramp instead of the extra few lands makes it so that you can ramp up by more than one mana each turn. That said, I strongly dislike 3-drop rocks in EDH; it's not that they're bad, it's that 2-mana drops are available and way better. The best ones are Mana Crypt, Mox Diamond, Mox Opal, Mana Vault etc. but like the fetches, these tend to be a lot of money. If you aren't allowed to use proxies (and aren't loaded af), try things like Arcane Signet, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Hierarchy, Fellwar Stone, Everflowing Chalice, Mind Stone, Dimir Signet, Azorius Signet, Orzhov Signet... You can't cast these off Yennett triggers, but you can't cast the lands they'd be replacing either. Additionally, you don't really want to be hitting rocks off the triggers, but more things like In Garruk's Wake or Behold the Beyond.
Countering combo decks generally depends on your meta, but cheap counters are a good way to push the deck harder. Mental Misstep is surprisingly good (in my experience), since it can counter Sol Ring, Silence, Demonic Consultation etc. Force of Will and Force of Negation are also expensive, but the best in the business. Spell Snare is good (it counters Flash and a bunch of other combo nonsense; Spell Pierce, Swan Song, Drown in the Loch and Narset's Reversal are also good.
If you're looking for more permanent-based disruption, you're in the right colors. Narset, Parter of Veils is good, as is Counterbalance (especially with Sensei's Divining Top). Lavinia, Azorius Renegade is good (she nails opposing Force of Wills and ramp). So are things like Containment Priest, Aven Mindcensor, Ashiok, Dream Render... Hatebears are great.
Mystic Remora is a good way to draw cards and disincentivize storm players.
Right. That's all I got. I hope it helps!

Price of Knowledge, Nightmare Incursion are big black spells, but has only one in mana cost :(
Imp's Mischief with K'rrik, troll misdirection in black for one mana and some life? Maybe? :D
Behold the Beyond, Grim Tutor, Increasing Ambition - some juicy tutors.
Sadistic Sacrament - pure cost (+7generic for kicker) could be pretty good in K'rrik deck.
Cavalier of Night, Doom Whisperer - more big juicy black creautures.

Crypt Rats and Thrashing Wumpus are lower CMC ways to get your Pestilence Demon effect.
how do you like Liliana Vess? i always felt like she was a 5 mana vampiric tutor that just drew hate. maybe she is good late game if you can protect her. but i found i usually preferred a regular Diabolic Tutor.
any thoughts about Bubbling Muck over Dark Ritual?
also maybe Hero's Downfall over Oblivion Strike? i mean exile is better but instant speed is definitely a plus over sorcery speed.
and there is always Imp's Mischief if you want to run a counterspell...
and your 7 drop Baneful Omen seems like it might not always hit that hard. what about Behold the Beyond?

Ring of Three Wishes can also help get cards in some decks.

I imagine we can cut a bunch of cards for stuff like Treacherous Blessing, maybe even Liliana's contract?
is it worth it to us to run Liliana Vess?
dirty doomsday pile: Infernal Contract into Sacrifice or whatever ritual, then Mikaeus, the Unhallowed + Viscera Seer + Walking Ballista
