Thanks a lot for your suggestions, but I'd recommend this for a budget sideboard:

1x Jegantha, the Wellspring CMPN

2x Dragon's Claw

2x Sorcerous Spyglass

2x Spatial Contortion

1x Thragtusk

4x Tormod's Crypt

3x Wilt

A lot of the cards you suggested are really good when cast off of Tron, but most of the time you'd much rather be playing the payoff cards in the main deck with your Tron mana; the sideboard should be more focused on shoring up bad matchups (life gain and removal for aggro decks, graveyard hate for Dredge and combos) and countering your opponent's sideboard cards ( Wilt to deal with stuff like Damping Sphere ) on the turns before you have Tron, since that's when your opponents are most likely to beat you or play their anti-Tron cards.

Hey just wanted to point out that Sorcerous Spyglass shuts Ugin off.

Flamekin Village and Hanweir Battlements  Flip have haste built into manabase. If you go Endling , Blood Pet / Blood Vassal , Walking Ballista / Triskelion / Crystalline Crawler route you won't really need any haste effects but you're very reliant on Endling . Also I don't see any reason to run Tale's End over Stifle . Overall looks good but all Mairsil decks will fall to cards like Phyrexian Revoker , Pithing Needle , Sorcerous Spyglass , Gideon's Intervention etc... Unfortunate as he's a really fun commander when you get to bank a ton of abilities.

Possible sideboard includes that are budget Back to Nature for Boggles, Sorcerous Spyglass for a catch all, Ancient Grudge and Smash to Smithereens for Affinity, Tormod's Crypt for graveyard shenanigans, Ghost Quarter for Tron, and Thragtusk or my favorite Bottle Gnomes for any Aggro!

But sideboards are always dependent on what you play against! Hope that gives some ideas!

So I found this completely by accident when I was at 4 life facing a Vorinclex on the other side of the board. I Used Fae of Wishes to grab and drop Nine Lives and pass the turn. Vorinclex swings and... no counters get added to Nine Lives . I had already dropped a Sorcerous Spyglass naming Ugin, the Spirit Dragon so he couldn't even blow up the Nine Lives .

In summary Nine Lives +Vorinclex = Good lol.

Hey KongMing thanks for the suggestions but card draw isn't usually an issue that I run into enough to justify Whirlwind of Thought . I can see Narset of the Ancient Way having some use and may try her out in a variant, along with Shark Typhoon though they would probably fit better in the 80 card yorion version of this deck. I have really tried to streamline this version into boardwipes, exile effects, and protection for the shrines. Thanks again for the feedback.

-Ugin Update- I can't believe I hadn't thought about it but Sorcerous Spyglass is now this decks answer to Ugin.

I like the idea. But Yahenni's Expertise looks a bit out of place. You run 12 discard/disruption spells and a set Fatal Push . Singl target removal would be more effective and the Experstise should be more a sideboard card against elfes, goblins or slivers, Damnation would be more effective in case of regeneration or power boost. Another great Disruption spell would be Inquisition of Kozilek . With a fully cycle with Thoughtseize you dont need Massremoval in the main. Thats what i play on my Mono Black deck.

In the sideboard I would replace Sorcerous Spyglass with Pithing Needle . Cheaper and with Thoughtseize you know the hand, normally.
