Alright here's what I've come up with:

You have:

4x Baral, Chief of Compliance ($15.24 total, $3.81 ea)
4x Desperate Ritual ($6.64 total)
2x Empty the Warrens ($.78 total)
2x Gifts Ungiven ($8.8 total, $4.4 ea assuming MM3)
2x Grapeshot ($.96 total)
2x Pyretic Ritual ($2.88)
2x Sleight of Hand ($8.06 total, assuming 9ED)
3x Manamorphose ($20.76 total, assuming SHM)
3x Remand ($14.67 total)
Total: $78.79

I have:

2x Voice of Resurgence [Dragon's Maze] ($32.28 total)
1x Voice of Resurgence [MM3] ($12.93 total)
1x Scavenging Ooze [M14] ($3.5 total)

1x Selfless Spirit ($3.88 total)

Note that the Lightning Helix's are OG Ravnica and HP, so I adjusted the price to the lowest you can buy a HP Rav one: $4.38. As always happy to provide pics :)

Otherwise the prices are all the prices listed on the site (TCG median?). The Path to Exile is the foil FNM promo.

I went by the editions listed on your decklist, so if any are different let me know!

Non-storm cards I was interested in are your Remands but I can take them out of the trade if you don't want to trade 'em.

Does this look okay to you? & PLEASE check my math it's not my specialty @_@

Aethos on The Locusts are Coming... (cEDH)

I just try to throw in some stuff, maybe you can use some of it.

Well known combos which might be nice here:
Grim Monolith/Basalt Monolith + Power Artifact = infinite colourless mana.
Grim Monolith/Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth = infinite colourless mana.
Tidespout Tyrant + Sol Ring/Mana Vault/Mana Crypt = infinite colourless mana.
Tidespout Tyrant + infinite colourless mana + Candelabra of Tawnos/Palinchron = infinite coloured mana.
Tidespout Tyrant + infinite colourless mana + Izzet Signet/Mox Opal/Fellwar Stone/Gilded Lotus = infinite coloured mana.
Palinchron + Phantasmal Image = infinite coloured mana.Candelabra of Tawnos + High Tide or similar = good mana rock.
Future Sight + Helm of Awakening + Sensei's Divining Top = draw.
Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter = a lot of infinite stuff possible.

I'd probably play Preordain, Gitaxian Probe, Impulse and Fact or Fiction. Maybe also Gush and certainly Frantic Search. These help you go through your pile quicker, which is quite important, since you don't have access to a lot of the good black tutors. Gamble and Intuition might be good, tutors are important for in cEDH. Turnabout seems good. I think most red cEDH decks play Pyroblast/Red Elemental Blast. Chain of Vapor probably belongs here and also Hurkyl's Recall. I think Dack Fayden belongs in every commander deck. Past in Flames. Baral, Chief of Compliance.

I'd streamline the deck towards fast combo (similar to a storm deck) and remove the stax elements. Usually if you try to be between fast combo and stax you don't do either right. I like Mind Stone, but for cEDH it's probably too slow. Library of Leng doesn't do enough in this deck I think.

Docent of Perfection  Flip is a backup talrand. I also see no reason to leave out Archaeomancer or Baral, Chief of Compliance. A few creatures might help you a very long way. And if only Talrand Command Beacon might be essential to grabbing him when tax gets too high. I recommend adding some more blockers as if they know Talrand is the only guy he will be killed so you're neutered. But good luck!

Aetherflux Reservoir actually will be something to look into. Baral, Chief of Compliance will probably replace the goblin, honestly its consistency I don't want more off. Dragonstorm is for comboing off, grab Niv and ping when I draw. While top and soothsaying can be good it is dangerous to add any more permanents. Vandalblast doesn't draw me a card so it isnt good for this deck. Counterflux most likely wont make the cut due to the fact that the only two other counter spells are used for other purposes rather than countering.

Would Aetherflux Reservoir be another good win condition?

Baral, Chief of Compliance is a better Goblin Electromancer, but I think you should just play both for the added consistency.

Dragonstorm; are the 3 dragons in your deck that important for you to be able to win? Otherwise I'd say that's an easy cut.

I mentioned this before, but Sensei's Divining Top and Soothsaying to help stack the top of your library for Melek.

Even though Smash replaces itself, I'd still rather just play Vandalblast.

I think adding more counterspells to help protect yourself would be a good idea. Counterflux in particular.
