Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign Discussion

Alright, thanks everybody!
Omniscience_is_life, I think impulsive draw like Jeska's Will and Outpost Siege is too dangerous. Though a small chance, if I happen to exile up to three major creatures, I probably won't be able to cast them and I'll lose them completely. Valakut Awakening Flip seems solid, though!
TriusMalarky Wow, Helm of the Host had been on my mind, but I never considered putting in Godo, Bandit Warlord as an alternative wincon. Open the Armory and Axgard Armory are nice! You are right, I don't care too much about tutors because they often limit how the deck works to specific cards. But in this case it makes sense, especially because of the Atla Palani, Nest Tender + Ashnod's Altar + Thornbite Staff combo.
hejtmane Thank you, I hadn't considered these since I have access to green for ramp. I'll check it out. As for Sensei's Divining Top and Scroll Rack , I actually had them in but eventually took them out again and put them into my Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign deck. I feel that topdeck manipulation is not the best approach here.
RambIe, I will put in Maskwood Nexus . Sacrificing a Blightsteel to save it from a Path or Swords - and then triggering Atla to bring in Kozilek, because that Blightstseel was also an egg, that seems like a great idea:) As for Greater Good , if I sacrifice an egg I will draw no cards but discard three, isn't that right? If Atla is removed before she triggers, doesn't that mean I just discard my hand for nothing? Seems a dangerous thing to do... which actually leads me to the question I've never thought about: When Atla is in play and I sacrifice the egg, she triggers. When she is removed with an instant, her trigger remains on the stack, doesn't it?
This was very helpful for me, thank you all!

Snow Bolt, kinda.
Foretell is basically hand-morph, I like it.
Niko Aris' Shard tokens are basically Clues + scry 1. Oh and they're enchantments!
Tibalt finally graduates to , while usurping not!Loki in the process. Incidentally, he can be played as your commander.
Koll, the Forgemaster: Go infinitive mana with a CMC 0 creature + Equip cost 0 Equipment and an altar/krark's I guess. There's probably something more fun to do, but I'm going to leave that to the usual suns_pect.

Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign-being able to play things for free, plus having some of the best colors for removal and countermagic
Rhys the Exiled-elf tribal for a lot of good creatures, plenty of removal and ramp options, plus options for tutors

I'd give Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign. Set up the top deck with big, odd CMC spells and generally have a good time.

Glad to help, I also made an izzet (blue/red) deck recently that focused on cheating things out so here's a good blue cards I think you could use, Diluvian Primordial. I also know this is a budget deck and extra turn cards are expensive, but extra turns mean extra combats, so here is the cheapest price wise odd CMC extra turn card, Temporal Trespass, and for cheap but not odd CMC there's, Part the Waterveil, Karn's Temporal Sundering, and Timestream Navigator. There all over a dollar but they're cool. Also it's a really cool deck and now I'm thinking about making a deck with Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign.

If he shifts the deck into fully cEDH territory then yes, I would do that you say, but I would go as far as say cut more lands and add a bunch more of fast mana. But as it stands, I don't see cutting lands and Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign (which is really good) for counterspells!

multimedia the 9 lands you're looking for are in the maybe board :) as stated befor the main board are cards i own and the maybe board are cards i consider, need or will buy later :)
the main them of the deck is to annoy anyone at the table as much as possbile
also Chromi is just a placeholder till i got my Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign
thank you for the great feedback :)
i will take the addition and cuts in consideration and will do some playtesting with proxys to see what sticks with my play style best :)
