One could argue cards like Restoration Angel and Bloodbraid Elf are better too.

For Black, I would agree.

Thought-Knot Seer is definitely a contender for the best 4-drop, and Bloodbraid Elf made it onto the Modern banlist.
On another topic, are you sure you want no forests at all? Seems like Blood Moon could hurt you a lot this way. Maybe it would an option to include one in the sideboard at least?

A few cards you could add would be more cards with cascade like Etherium-Horn Sorcerer, Bloodbraid Elf, and/or Demonic Dread. Some fun interactions you could have would be cards like Possibility Storm, Eye of the Storm, and Swarm Intelligence. And to utilize the most out of storm, use more cards with flashback like Think Twice, Past in Flames, and/or Mizzix's Mastery. Also, cards that "put into play" don't really effect storm, so the synergy isn't necessarily the best. This deck just needs to be focused more if you're wanting to go the storm route.

Hope this was helpful. Let me know if you need any more help.

In the effort of critiquing, I would imagine Verdant Sun's Avatar isn't very good since it only prevents you from not dying, while it seems your deck profits very well off of killing your opponent as an effective way of not dying. Just in general then I would suggest more fast mana such as Mana Crypt, Mana Vault, Worn Powerstone.

I also think Command Beacon is amazing with Maelstrom Wanderer, as at least when I play a maelstrom deck my favorite thing is to cast it double cascade and hope it dies so that I can cast it again.

Another card I'm just generally a huge fan of is Etherium-Horn Sorcerer, while it doesn't have an ETB ability if you cascade into it it will trigger cascade again allowing you to continue the chain at a lower converted mana cost.

Also don't like Managorger Hydra that much, generally don't like beaters even if they are efficiently costed in commander, maybe Forgotten Ancient would be better, or perhaps more cascade such as Bloodbraid Elf

Bloodbraid Elf is now banned in Modern.

Palinchron, Treachery, Boundless Realms, Primeval Bounty, and Cultivate are all good cards for this deck you could try out. Also Bloodbraid Elf and Shardless Agent can be useful since they will filter out some of the lower cost spells in your deck for your commander while helping to build your storm count.

I could definitely write up Primers. I am in the process of updating my entire Primer and adding new sections for combos (not sure if they could be viable outside of tutors) and niche lists and could link to your website within the Primer. Not sure when I could have an article done by but a schedule of once or twice a week depending on content seems doable.

I think something we could do to start analyzing the meta is riffling through TappedOut, reddit, Salvation, etc. and find which commanders are most used. Also brainstorming decks using Bloodbraid Elf, Spellheart Chimera, pyschatog, Mistmeadow Witch, and Invisible Stalker among others and seeing how broken we can make them. Also deciding whether Ghostly Flicker warps the format.
