Thanks @archfield. I wouldn't reduce Fiery Temper but I would reduce Lightning Axe instead because is creatures only damage.

I love Burn from Within now that Smuggler's Copter is gone

I would only run 2x Fiery Temper to match the 2x Lightning Axe, since without the axe it's overcosted. I would add two Bedlam Reveler for card draw after you dump your hand, or two Burn from Within as a late-game finisher.

Expedite is nice and speedy!

There's also Burn from Within, Collective Defiance and Incendiary Flow.

Yes, the casting can be countered on Ballista but I meant pinging them to death. There are 2 cards that stop abilities in standard, Disallow and Summary Dismissal. Neither one can save the opponent from death once I start pinging. If it looks like they're holding up SD then I resolve each ping independently so SD cant ever stop more than one ping. Ballista also can be played as a mana dork early game, it dodges most counterspells which are usually used on noncreature spells as you said. Its just a better answer to avoid disruption than an XR burn spell. If I ran Burn from Within there are a ton of different ways to stop that. Commencement of Festivities can also stop me from swinging in. There is only one card I can think of that can stop me from killing you with the Ballista short of a kill spell which as I said earlier, when I'm mid combo I'll just push everything into it and blow it up on the stack.

Because there's no way to get infinite mana since you must pay 2 Energy once you have it TheRedGoat. It counts as 3 casts, but unfortunately doesn't go infinite.

I have Walking Ballista here over Burn from Within because of counterspells. One card can stop my burn spell while nothing can stop the pings from the ballista as long as you order your triggers correctly.

I was thinking the same, but my main reasoning is that I already have Burn from Within. Lol

Oh and you could replace Volcanic Geyser with Burn from Within. It costs less but it's also a sorcery not an instant.
