Creature — Weird
Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell, Blistercoil Weird gets +1/+1 until end of turn. Untap it.
Blistercoil Weird Discussion

The classic method is to run creatures like Kiln Fiend Blistercoil Weird alongside your Nivix Cyclops as your only creatures. Then, fill the rest of your deck with instants and sorceries like Mutagenic Growth and Assault Strobe , and try to beat the opponent in one attack.

Thanks for the amazing feedback TapTapGo! And all are amazing considerations!
Abrade is a definite sideboard include and I'd be devastated if anyone does anything to try slow me down, looking at Narset, Parter of Veils , Damping Sphere which most decks run or sideboard on themselves. I'd have to consider a similar side to storm decks as this technically is one.
Noxious Revival is a a very cool include especially if I need that bit of extra gas hence I included Lava Dart that pretty much is two spells at the cost of losing a mountain. But I definitely want to include it even if doesn't trigger the Runaway Steam-Kin .
I was looking at Harness the Storm as a loop machine as you cast the spell and not copies so it does trigger Blistercoil Weird and Runaway Steam-Kin but that's a very wishful thinking card to include so Tectonic Reformation seems nice for now to not run out of card draw hopefully having mana left to get the engine fired up again.
I guess all I can do now is play test till I know for sure.

If you can get Expansion loaded into Isochron and catch another the combo goes infinite for 5 mana and you can ramp a creature with prowess or use a creature with direct attack ability. You’ll need the first Expansion to copy a cheap 1 cost spell like Lightning Bolt, then the next (loaded into Isochron) will make a copy of Expansion. The new copy can then copy the original and go back and forth forever.

So in my opinion, Cerulean Wisps is a must have. Also, i have tried Turn Aside to get rid of pesky removal ( Path to Exile , Assassin's Trophy etc.), which works very well. The Cerulean Wisps just serves as a somewhat better Mutagenic Growth , and allows you to cast things like your Manamorphose . I run a sideboard of two Kiln Fiend , just in case they remove my Blistercoil Weird . Also Storm Entity just in case they can stop your Blistercoil Weird from attacking. also, Peek gives you insight into their hand to see whether you should combo or not. The dream would be if Gitaxian Probe got unbanned and then it would let this deck go off, but sadly, it is banned. The Crimson Wisps / Expedite are for if you get another Blistercoil Weird / Kiln Fiend later in your turn. I haven't tried it yet, but i think a couple of Faithless Looting are in order for those lands that you don't want in your hand. Last thing, have you considered Young Pyromancer , because i have them in sideboard and they can go pretty crazy.

i run a deck like this and Mutagenic Growth and Assault Strobe also i use a full playset of Slip Through Space to make sure its unblockable. maybe Crimson Wisps in case you get another Blistercoil Weird early on

Hello and thanks for the advice, RedmundR2. The only reason I have 3 Blistercoil Weird instead of two is that I only have 3 right now. I will be getting the 4th soon replacing the Monastery Swiftspear (it is a place holder).
