Spinerock Knoll is just sort of win more, typically if I've done 7 damage to an opponent, I'm doing a ton of damage and winning. Also, I really want to keep as many basics as possible in this deck for the ramp cards. Speaking of which, since the deck's core plan is to use instants and sorceries for big benefits, that's where I want to focus my ramp, not so much on mana dorks. I just realized that this deck needs to be seriously updated on here because Burning Wish is in the deck and Blasphemous Act is in the wishboard, especially for the Vigor combo. Explore is a great card and has consistently been in the 5-10 cards that I would like to have in the deck but their are usually just better options. Thanks for taking the time to make suggestions and discuss it with me. If you like the deck, I'd appreciate the upvotes!

Well you could just use some graveyard recursion that'll help you rebuild Patriarch's Bidding or Yawgmoth's Will come to mind. However cards like Merciless Eviction negate this. Instead you could use Hedonist's Trove or the "Wish" cycle - Cunning Wish, Burning Wish, Death Wish, Living Wish, or Golden Wish. Perhaps one of those would be your best bet.

A consideration is tutors:

There's straight up tutors like Green Sun's Zenith (green creature only, but repeatable and can look for Dryad Arbor turn one), Traverse the Ulvenwald, Burning Wish/Death Wish/Living Wish (from your sideboard) and I'm sure some non-banned black tutors.

There's the mana sink Duskwatch Recruiter that digs through your library.

Satyr Wayfinder picks out particular lands and fills the graveyard.

And there is Cascade cards that bypass your lands to the other spells (and casts them for free) i.e. Demonic Dread and Violent Outburst.

Basic Plains + Burning Wish for sideboard Fragmentize is another option.

Death Wish or Burning Wish are what's able to get that back.

When I asked a judge about Burning Wish, he said that it can be any card in my collection and doesn't have to be in a sideboard. Since the EDH format doesn't use a sideboard, it can be any card I have on me. I keep all the viable targets for wish cards in my stack of tokens and the playgroup has agreed that those cards will work. So Merciless Eviction and Calming Verse are already in there. I use Burning Wish to get Glittering Wish, to get Maelstrom Nexus in my Yidris deck. Since Yidris should be one with the Nexus, he is the Maelstrom Wielder after all.

The main reason I don't want to run the Disk is because mono red doesn't recover well from mass board wipe effects. I'll be in top deck mode a lot of the time unless I have Mind's Eye out. It's the same reason why I don't run Perilous Vault, I just wouldn't be able to recover from it in time. I would have to run Soul of New Phyrexia and activate it at the same time.

An alternative plan that I've been considering, is running Burning Wish to go grab Calming Verse, I would just need to add a land that adds mana of any color. I'm a fan of Cascading Cataracts, it would give me more options for Burning Wish targets. I could go get Merciless Eviction for example.

Fun game today vs. Omnath, Locus of Mana and Karlov of the Ghost Council. Omnath, Locus of Mana built her board with Snow-Covered Forests and Extraplanar Lens ramp into multiple big stompy creatures, while Karlov of the Ghost Council built his board with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers ramp into Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts and Karlov of the Ghost Council. I played an Acidic Soil to keep everyone wary of counterattack and waiting to see who gets an advantage first. I then ramped with multiple rocks, gained card advantage with Queen Marchesa and Delaying Shield, and eventually played Burning Wish to Insurrection to take out Omnath, Locus of Mana and deal 6 commander damage to Karlov of the Ghost Council with Karlov of the Ghost Council. Karlov of the Ghost Council controlled the board by exiling all the creatures I brought in until I was finally able to play an Act of Aggression on Karlov of the Ghost Council, equipped Sunforger, tapped Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts with Pacification Array, and then Boros Charm'd Karlov of the Ghost Council for 20 more commander damage, winning the game. Crazy game! Both opponents were killed with their own creatures, Karlov of the Ghost Council with commander damage! The addition of Threaten effects has been a good change.
