I am a 53 year old grandmother who freely admits to being a noob but enjoys playing with my kids, grandkids, and nephews - they have more skill than I and can use pointers or suggestions. I don't mind spending a few extra dollars if it means I can stay in the game long enough not to be a lame old person.

With Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign attacks, the top card of the library is revealed. If that card's converted mana cost is odd, it may cast it without paying its mana cost. Therefore, all the cards in this deck, with the exception of Scroll Rack are odd mana. Since the deck shouldn't rely on a on a one trick pony, mana ramp can be achieved in several ways by drawing additional cards or choosing specific cards by using Ring of Three Wishes, to pull targeted cards such as Gilded Lotus or the trifecta of Urza's Mine, Urza's Power Plant, Urza's Tower or other multi-purpose cards such as Dark Petition which helps to ramp up mana while searching for the right combo of cards.

Additionally, enchanting Yennett, Cryptic Sovereign with Gift of Immortality should help keep her in play long enough to potentially cast several decent cards high-cost mana cards Emrakul, the Promised End, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Karn Liberated.

I am skimping a bit on instants and sorcery spells but have Boseiju, Who Shelters All to ensure I make best use of the spells cast. Also there several ways to shuffle my graveyard back into my library so I don't get milled out. Also using Cavern of Souls to cast Angels seems to fit well with the deck.

Suggestions are very much appreciated... imagine if your grandma wanted to spend time with you so she is learning to play MTG.
