, : Target opponent exiles cards from the top of their library until they exile an instant or sorcery card. You may cast that card without paying its mana cost. Then put the exiled cards that weren't cast this way on the bottom of that library in a random order.

You can't, unless they have flash. Abilities that allow you to play a card "this turn" allow you to do so only if they follow their regular timing restrictions.
This is different from abilities which just state "you may cast that card," like on Chaos Wand, as casting the card is done as part of that ability resolving.

My thoughts Show
Wand of Wonder: Deluxe Chaos Wand for one more mana to cast (but the same for actually activating). Even if you can't rely on getting more than one spell (it'll "only" happen 55% of the time), the fact that you don't have to guess which opponent has the best spell cards in their deck (hell, you get to reveal quite a bit of information for everyone to see) and get to choose among three cards makes the risk of whiffing with stuff like Torment of Hailfire or Elvish Promenade much less likely. Prosper obviously enjoys this, even if the exta red pip makes it a bit harder to reliably cast off an impulse draw. Oh and note that whatever spell cards you don't choose to cast stays exiled.
Ancient Brass Dragon: I was annoyed about the color assignment of the chromatic dragons and I'm annoyed about this. Hell, now the visual color doesn't even apply; how is a shiny Chaotic Good creature mono-black? The actual card is an OK Timmy creature. No haste or self-protection along with unreliability isn't super great, but it'll occassionaly be quite funny when it gets in hits multiple turns in a row.
Minsc & Boo, Timeless Heroes: I don't see much appeal for running him as a commander beyond fan-service. Anyway, changelings are also Hamsters so you could fling e.g. a Taurean Mauler to net the draw. Oh and with a Mirror Box you can make extra Boos!

Leonantti: So far it's been pretty good! Every game I've been able to make a lot of treasures and reliably cast a big value Torment of Hailfire or Exsanguinate. Cut / Ribbons is definitely right up my alley and will be a definite addition!
It's a steep price to pay to pick them up, but if you're planning on making Prosper a mainstay in your collection of decks then I'd highly recommend investing in or trading for Sensei's Divining Top & Scroll Rack to help control what he's exiling from the top of your library.
BX223Hunter: That's a lot of great suggestions! Chaos Wand and Inspiring Statuary will definitely be finding a home here, I think. Creative Technique is pretty neat, too - not sure if it will make the cut at 5 CMC though. A lot of my focus in the building process was trying to keep the number of 4+ mana cards to a minimum to enable being able to play whatever I have exiled and still having mana for spells in my hand as well.
Wandering Archaic Flip was in my original build and may yet make it back in after more playtesting, but was also cut in the pursuit of reducing mana costs. Draugr Necromancer is good and not something I had considered. May not make the cut but something I'm going to mull over. I've been trying to acquire Uba Mask but haven't been able to find one in the wild yet. May end up having to order one, but will definitely be in the deck once I can find one.
Thanks so much for the comments, suggestions and upvotes! =D

1st off - LOVE the deck. Love Prosper and have been struggling to make a non-combo version of him. I really appreciate your version. Also totally agree with the previous poster.
Draugr Necromancer works well with this deck if you don't mind switching all your basics over to snow.
Inspiring Statuary is a must with treasure tokens - makes them semi-permanent!
Uba Mask is on the $$$ expensive side but is a marvel in this deck. Amazing how much it screws with your opponents, too!
Creative Technique is kind of a pet card, but also fits in nicely. AND if you appreciate cards like this: Chaos Wand is a blast and may give you access to things like ramp, counterspells, draw spells, and board wipes from your opponents!
Juri and reckoner's bargain would be some thoughts for cuts.

EJ!! Let's do this! This build is already tight, but here are my thoughts\suggestions...
Cards I'd consider cutting: Seize the Spoils, Reckless Endeavor, Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast, Poison the Cup, Vengeful Reaper, Dream Devourer, Replicating Ring, Ward of Bones, Darksteel Forge, the flip tibalt guy, Ash Barrens, Cryptic Caves, Darksteel Citadel, Foreboding Ruins, Mortuary Mire, Zhalfirin Void
Cards I'd consider adding: Light Up the Stage, Chaos Wand, You Find Some Prisoners, Reckless Fireweaver, Valakut Exploration, Rakdos Charm, Murderous Rider, Praetor's Grasp, Rakdos Signet, Bojuka Bog, Luxury Suite, Blood Crypt, Haunted Ridge, Smoldering Marsh, Dragonskull Summit, Bloodstained Mire, Temple of Malice
I would also suggest swapping Red Elemental Blast for Pyroclasm... seems silly, but pyroclasm can be cast even if there are no blue targets. So may not be relevant, but could be randomly at some point.

Hey, not sure if you're still checking the comments or updating your list but I've been keeping up with the deck as sets have been coming out and I wanted to highlight a few changes I've made which have been pretty effective.
It seems like black is getting a fair amount of support over the last while towards the theme of "play other people's cards" and I decided to lean in on that theme to see how it's been. Most importantly I was determined to add the cards in without losing the core of what the deck does.
Opposition Agent has been useful as many people already know. You might scoop one tutor with it, but until answered it stops all tutoring afterwards.
Dauthi Voidwalker has been great. It acts as a 2nd Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet for eating graveyards and gives the added bonus of being able to play your opponent's cards. Important note is that if you get it out a 2nd time it still sees the previously exiled cards.
Praetor's Grasp I play in a pretty combo heavy environment so this is simply a good combo killer. It has the added personal flavor that the opponent doesnt get to see the card so they sit there stewing all game wondering what it is, only to later discover it was their Thassa's Oracle.
Chaos Wand This was the biggest surprise of them all. On the surface it looks really random and unreliable, but as long as you're knowledgeable of what most decks do I find I know which deck to target in which situation. Got a counter heavy blue deck, they're your target when you most likely want to stop something. Need a removal spell? Hit that player who packs way too much of it in their deck. I was pleasantly surprised at how effective this card was at giving me a solid end of turn mana sink, and to give me some extra reach to deal with artifacts and enchantments.
Lastly, a small change that has been relevant at times, I cut 4 swamps for fetchlands as I found the ability instant speed fetch Witch's Cottage to be a nice surprise for my opponents.
