Hi Futuremonk! You are absolutely right, I didn't think of that! Thank you a lot! :D

Hi! I totally missed the Vicious Shadows which is a perfectly viable (and unique) win-con! I like it. I did see Impact Tremors, I just forgot to mention it in my comment, I guess ^^'
I understand the reasoning behind Leave, it's not my speed I guess. On the other hand Paradoxical Outcome has won me so many games! Even sometimes casting that returning three cheap artifacts in my Jhoira deck, it drew my just enough cards to start comboing off. But, two mana is way less than two mana, I get that :) As for Ugin, maybe I'm biased, but having played that in the mentioned Jhoira deck, I still thing 6 mana is a lot! I usually try to find cheaper cards that do similar stuff, although admittedly, not as versatile.
Oh! I also missed the interaction between casting the Top with Kykar, that's pretty cool! :D Having that, I think it's even more reason to cut Ugin. However, I'll defer to you if cards are worth or not in your own deck, of course! I'm not the best brewer by any means hahaha
All that said, I think you gave me inspiration to brew around Kykar in a slightly different direction :D

Hi! It looks like a pretty interesting list. I have a couple of straight suggestions, and some comments/questions.
The first comment is that I see that this deck is pretty much a cEDH deck, it looks pretty consistent and pretty fast when it gets going. In that regard, I don't like Leave / Chance. If it's there for the Chance part, I would recommend more like Ponder, Preordain and Brainstorm. I mean, I recommend those three cards regardless! They're really efficient. On the other hand, if the Leave part is relevant, there's always Paradoxical Outcome which is bonkers good! Or even Rebuild which also returns opponents' stuff.
Another card I don't like is Ugin, the Ineffable. I mean, it's a really good card, but also very expensive. As I understand, it's there to discount artifacts, in that sense there's Cloud Key and Semblance Anvil which also do that and they're not creatures. Or even Helm of Awakening (this one reduces all costs, but to everyone). Although, artifact combo doesn't really look like the main strategy, in which sense I would just cut Ugin, and add other stuff. Most of your artifacts are very cheap anyway.
Now, one of the comments/questions I have is the following. The main Win-Con is Aetherflux Reservoir, isn't it? It's a really good win-con but still, some other win-cons are always good. In order to make the deck more resilient I would add additional finishers, like Walking Ballista when you have infinite mana, or maybe even a Jace, Wielder of Mysteries with so many Wheel effects! Oh! Another cool line is Wheel of Fortune and Lion's Eye Diamond with Underworld Breach! You can draw your whole deck, cast Jace and win on the spot! You can also switch the Wheel with Brain Freeze! :D
In general I like the deck! It seems really cool! :D I'll keep an eye on it!

I do have a Living Death in the main board, but redundancy is never a bad thing to have. I think I like a lot Twilight's Call, specially in the late game when you can cast it at instant speed. Thanks a lot for the suggestion, and commenting in general! :D

Now, if cEDH is the way this deck is pushing I would also get other pieces to make it faster. What I mean is, something like Linvala, Keeper of Silence is really good, but if the plan is to cast in turn 4 it might be way too late. I would cut stuff that is either too narrow, too mana intensive or too inconsistent or unreliable, like Sun Titan, Dimir Doppelganger, Mirage Mirror and Unmake. Strangely enough, by my experience Cryptic Command is too expensive and hard to cast most of the time, specially with 3 colours!
In exchange I would add fast mana like Mana Vault, Grim Monolith and Chrome Mox. And other staples like Windfall and Timetwister (availability or budget permitting). Casting a Windfall on turn 1 with 3 or 4 mana on the battlefield is bonkers! Or with a Narset, Parter of Veils!
As a final note, I would consider switching the most expensive ways to draw cards and add some cheaper ones. Like switching Esper Charm and Sphinx's Revelation for Ponder, Preordain and/or Brainstorm.

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!
