You could start with azamaniac sb into ghoul+breath. They will probably side out their removal G2, and brink in the Emmy awards after seeing your wincon. The question is, which is more likely to happen game 1:
1: You go off after they have hard, instant speed removal up. This won't happen if their removal is toughness based, sorcery speed, nonexistent, or just costing more than the mana you let them have, which, if you go off turn 1 on the play, is 0.
2: They have emrakul MD. This is sneak & show and some elves combo decks. Progenitus gives them 1 extra turn if they're on natural order, but if you go off early enough they're still probably dead.
There is the additional factor that starting with azamaniac will make them leave in useless removal spells, and they might not leave up removal if they don't know what your deck does. They might just try to race you, thinking you're belcher. However, if they have countermagic, they're leaving up removal every turn anyways.
So, in conclusion, your decision as to which to run MD, and whether to SB the other one should be based on your ability to win super early and your expectations of the amount of cheap removal and elves and sneak & show decks in the meta
I don't have an egosig because I'd rather my ideas be judged on their merits than on mine.
