Burn from Within

Sorcery

Burn from Within deals X damage to target creature or player. If a creature is dealt damage this way, it loses indestructible until end of turn. If that creature would die this turn, exile it instead.

All the cards pskinn01 says are great here are some more

Mission Briefing - basically give you a Scry 2 (in a different form) and flashback for any instant or sorcery

Turn to Frog - Great way to get rid of those annoying 10 power or 12 toughness creatures or those that are indestructible. Plus just being able to things into frogs are fun

Deep Freeze - Similar to Turn to Frog but it becomes a 0/4 wall instread of a 0/1 frog however it until the aura leaves the creature instead of until the end of the turn

The Mirari Conjecture Ik its not an instant or sorcery but it really good two flashback and a copyinstant or sorcery spell as actually won me games

Summary Dismissal - Board wipe for Blue

Mystic Confluence - Great Utility

Sinister Sabotage - Counterspell with Scry 1 (in a different form) sure why not?

Cryptic Command - Again Nice Utility

Frantic Search - A free draw power card

Disallow - An extremely powerful counter spell

Kira, Great Glass-Spinner - Not a instant, sorcery or wizard but free counter once each turn per creature yes please.

Aether Gale - a different version of Cyclonic Rift many forgot about this card

Rewind - A free counter spell

Counterspell -Every blue deck has it

Mana Drain -If you have it or can afford/willing to buy cough up the money for it.

Pull from Tomorrow -My favorite draw spell

As Foretold - A slower Omniscience actually wont draw you as much aggro as fast

Omniscience - Play whatever you want for free with no drawbacks other than the big target your painting on your back

Starstorm , Star of Extinction , Anger of the Gods or Hour of Devastation - All great Red board wipes

Burn from Within - Deals with pesky indestructible

Keranos, God of Storms - Again not a Instant, Sorcery or wizard but a potentially free Lightning Bolt each turn why not?

Thousand-Year Storm - same as the last effect of The Mirari Conjecture only it stays around

Blastfire Bolt - 5 damage and equipment destruction

Chemister's Trick - Could save your life if backed into a corner or could back your opponent in one.

Countervailing Winds - If you have a lot of cheap cards that makes this card super nice but i would save this card for the opponents big play as the opponent either loses the card or has to waste the rest of their to save it leaving you able to counter attack next if you survive.

Fissure and Crush -Red kills spells

Firemind's Foresight - Search spell for instants or sorcery spells

Hornswoggle and Spell Swindle - Counterspells that give you one time mana dorks yes

Apex of Power a Free cast cards from exile card

Banefire damage that can't be prevented sure

Bonfire of the Damned , Burn at the Stake and Devil's Play -Personal favorites of mine

By Force - a great artifact kill spell

Crack the Earth - well you get hit as well is a quick way to get rid of a pesky card

Rekindled Flame - A burn spell that can potentially come back over ad over again

Reforge the Soul - Need a new hand?

And many more but i don't want this to get to bloated (maybe to late for that.) so i'll end it here. hope these help

If you have the feeling that you are facing a lot of indestructible creatures, you can consider Soul-Scar Mage. It's just a one drop, so not that impactful, but you can see it as a spell that says: "Your next spell has wither" or something like that. It also works with the damage from your commander, since it triggers on non-combat-damage.

I would also add Comet Storm to the main board, it is in my opinion one of the best X burn spells to target multiple targets with. I think it's better than Banefire and Burn from Within, not considering the niche interaction, where the additional effects these spells bring with them actually matter. They are definately good too, but if you want to kill multiple people in one swing, there are few burn spells better than Comet Storm.

Why do you play Survival Cache, for the card draw? Thats a card you could easily swap out i think.

Also, I would play the big mana rocks, like Worn Powerstone and Thran Dynamo. You're gonna need a lot of mana for those X-spells ;-) Maybe think about a package of Neheb, the Eternal with Astral Cornucopia and Everflowing Chalice

Looks pretty good. You could try adding Koth of the Hammer. Also his -2 combos really well with cards like Burn from Within and Devil's Play

Hey elfric sooo I got rid of the cards that you said I should get rid of, however I am thinking that I should keep Clan Defiance, because it is value removal, and I should keep Burn from Within, because it is huge value against cards like Avacyn, Angel of Hope or other bombs that have indestructible. I also chose to keep Boundless Realms, although that is a maybe. Side note: Would you recommend putting in a Nevinyrral's Disk as a backup answer if have a bad board position, or maybe before I am about to play a bomb?

@Panas - You hit a big concern I've been having dead on. Yeah I have too many things going on and I should start focusing things more. Thanks for the advice.

@DerektheRed - I'm really loving Burn from Within. Gib moar of the exile plz. I'll definitely look more into dealing with flying. Flying creatures infuriate and annoy me more than they should.

@luther - I was meaning to get Grave Pact. Dictate of Erebos was just cheaper and at the time I just wanted to buy the bulk of my deck. I definitely agree with you on recursion and wanted to expand that part of my deck. Meren and Sheoldred are two I was planning on acquiring soon, but Doomed Necromancer, Apprentice Necromancer, and Hell's Caretaker are new options to me. Thanks for letting me know about them.

A few thoughts:

First and probably most important, you have a high-CMC deck and almost no ramp. You're going to start slow and recover slowly from wraths. Look at the signets, Gilded Lotus, Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip, Somberwald Sage (you can always sac dorks if you don't need em)... You'd benefit from Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx even sac'ing creatures a lot. Late game, stuff like Boundless Realms, Zendikar Resurgent or Everflowing Chalice are huge for recovery.

Cards like Elvish Piper are great to cheat stuff out directly, Aether Vial (pricey) or Quicksilver Amulet.

Second, making everything indestructible is tough in your colors, but if you can protect Kresh, wraths are actually a benefit. I'd definitely put in Darksteel Plate.

Third, in a deck like this I'd probably sideboard a few cards just to deal with flying like Gravity Well and Whirlwind.

Last, you've got the right idea making players sacrifice and using -1/-1 counters (though you don't really have enough -1/-1 to do it reliably) -- but you have almost no exile. That's how you get around indestructibility. Appetite for Brains, Bane of Bala Ged, Burn from Within.... I'm not even to 'C' yet - lots of options!
