Remove the top card of your library from the game. You may put that card into your hand unless it has the same name as another card removed this way. Repeat this process until you put a card into your hand or you remove two cards with the same name, whichever comes first.

Just a random thought, i notice you have six basics, two of each, have you considered switching 1 of each to be a snow basic and using Tainted Pact as a additional 2 mana tutor?

Eternal77: You may not hit your CFE creature for sure, but that's all just part of the game. And adding an additional 3 tutors to the deck is nothing to scoff at.
The other thing is that Chulane will generally leverage Thassa's Oracle / Laboratory Maniac for the win, but has to assemble the food chain combo first and then go from there. The benefit that Ukkima has is that the deck can still run the Thassa's Oracle + Tainted Pact combo which gives you a very clean out and redundancy on Food Chain, while Chulane either still relies entirely on food chain (which isn't great) or you have to devote additonal slots to a non-overlapping combo to provide redundancy in the deck.
On top of this, Chulane also costs 5, so while he is an engine that can draw you cards, it's not he cheapest mana investment. The other part of it is that wile you will be running a higher creature count to try and leverage food chain/Chulane himself, most cEDH decks still have a relatively low creature count. So while you definitely can transform a mana dork into another card (which is awesome), it can still be a bit hit and miss.

Tainted Pact надо, но как же жаба душит. Вместо него приобрёл Mana Crypt, т.к. параллельно собираю ещё другие колоды, для души, то не знаю когда решусь на покупку пакта вместо какого-либо мокса. так-то понятно, что он экономит где-то 2 слота.
Интересно будет послушать как работает Simian Spirit Guide, мне показалось, что лишняя быстрая мана хотя и не бывает лишней, но тут она красная, что уже не очень.

Привет! Как твоя Кесс?
Wishclaw Talisman пробовал? - я недавно положил и вполне неплохо себя показала (правда, надо учитывать что там абилка на сорсе играется...)
В результате на руку не приходят бесполезные (в данный момент) карты, только ресурсы и винконы ;)
Ещё, сегодня мэйном положил Simian Spirit Guide

Awesome deck. Some suggestions I have: You could consider running Sensei's Divining Top instead of Ponder if you have the funds, as it's basically just a repeatable ponder. Your deck could also easily slot in Demonic Consultation/Tainted Pact, as you're already running Thassa's Oracle, Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and Spellseeker, but that might be boring. Is there a reason for running Swiftfoot Boots instead of Lightning Greaves? And likewise, Tormod's Crypt over Soul-Guide Lantern?

EleshNornsFs Chances are, I'd try to abuse a manabase capable of supporting Tainted Pact, so you can run that and Demonic Consultation to make it easier to abuse the opposing Thassa's Oracle's you'll try to use. I assume cards that are instant speed removal would be useful, Disfigure, Dismember, Deadly Rollick, Fatal Push, Ulcerate, etc. to deal with opposing Drannith Magistrates and Opposition Agents. Dark Confidant, Necropotence, Ad Nauseam, and Bolas's Citadel can get you card advantage w/o drawing cards, and rituals like Dark Ritual and Cabal Ritual help get you the pieces together faster after a big draw turn. Remember with Opposition Agent, Instant Speed Removal, and instant speed rituals Necropotenceing for a lot could let you sort of storm off some decent number of cards on your endstep, not winning, but getting close to the lock.

You have Mana Severance + Balustrade Spy as well as Mana Severance + Undercity Informer as infinite mill of ANY player...but mana severance can only remove your lands so how is that supposed to mill another player? Just curious what I'm missing. (I'm pretty new to mtg). I could see if you used both those combos on yourself and then played Thassa's Oracle then you could instant win the game but there are easier combos for that (Demonic Consultation + Thassa's Oracle or Tainted Pact + Thassa's Oracle for instant wins)

Ok i've been thinking, Open the Armory (fetches: Animate Dead or Dance of the Dead) is better than Steelshaper's Gift (only Lightning Greaves), the issue is CMC2, for that I get Demonic Tutor or Tainted Pact or Diabolic Intent.
I dunno if you follow the Kaalia discord, but Kaalia of the Vast finished in the top-4 of 118 player cEDH tourney, Okoberfest, there's a decklist in the article (moxfield). I'm going to run a side-by-side differential, but notably it runs Ad Nauseam and Dualcaster Mage combos instead of like Dockside Extortionist combos (which I feel Corpse Dance isn't good until mid-range gameplay).
