T1 - for Dark Ritual, then for either Entomb or Cabal Therapy for your reanimation target, finally for Reanimate or remaining for Animate Dead.

Thoughtseize or Cabal Therapy to protect your combo? A fow or daze on your dark ritual can be back breaking.

Okay, after crunching the numbers. If the trade stays with me giving up my Goblin Guide and Cabal Therapy I would be interested in 1x Nissa, Voice of Zendikar, Abrupt Decay, Sorin, Solemn Visitor, and Inquisition of Kozilek. That trade would come out to $19.50 on my end and $19.75 on your end. I am definitely interested in the second Nissa that you have some let me know if there is something else you are interested in from by binder. Thanks

Thank you ogorek, I appreciate it!

Good question marsthesoos!

Actually I play 61 cards to be able to run 1-ofs without giving up on overall consistency, pretty much just so I don't have to cut anything off, like the single Cabal Therapy or Academy Ruins...

Adding the 4th Daze is something I am considering, but I think it is too risky with the low Island count I am running... I gotta test it out though!

There are a handful of top8 storm decks from 2017 using one Chrome Mox in the main deck. You can check this out at ...

I played storm in various different versions and at various times. Drawing a zero mana artifact is great if you storm off with Ad Nauseam to throw some unwanted cards into it to keep the storm up and running (or even just casting it for the storm count) and it is a great way to play a more straight forward game if it happens to be in your starting hand. So considering to play one Chrome Mox would improve your deck in my oppinion.

I would suggest: One Past in Flames out (since it puts you at a lot of risk as soon as you cast Ad Nauseam) and one Chrome Mox in instead.

Furthermore I consider Soothsaying just a bad card in your deck, no matter if you tried to compensate the loss of Sensei's Divining Top or not. Comparing it to the other one mana cards you play, I would assume even a mere Preordain would be better in your deck.

To push your deck in a more proactive direction you might want to split the discard spells into two Duress and two Thoughtseize. Maybe in exchance for the Soothsaying. Another thing worth considering might be the fourth Cabal Therapy.

Some of the latest deck use Dark Petition. I would consider them more dangerous if you want to focus on the Ad Nauseam plan, but it gives your deck another angle of attack, since you can run more tutors for the sole cost of 2 mana. Another idea in this direction would be to play two burning wishes in the main deck and run a second Past in Flames, a second Tendrils of Agony and maybe an Empty the Warrens or a Massacre in the sideboard.

Best regards, I hope to give you you a littel input :-)

I think you should just go with Thoughtseize over Cabal Therapy since you don't have a lot of options to flashback it. You don't have Young Pyromancer or Veteran Explorer to get extra value out of it either. Unless I'm missing something.

There are a lot better options you really should play. If you are doing budget, BR is generally a better option. You've got access to looting effects, and sideboard stuff. If you want to stay UB, here are my suggestions.

So for ways of putting stuff into graveyard. Cephalid Coliseum lets you loot, allowing you to draw into your reanimation and spells and discard the trash. Putrid Imp is a decent enough blocker who lets you discard stuff to reanimate at instant speed. Cabal Therapy can target yourself, but also be used as a way to ensure you can go off. Unmask is a solid option for stripping their hand, and yours.

For ways to reanimate, you have Necromancy, Animate Dead, Exhume, Dance of the Dead Reanimate. You want at least 12 reanimation methods. Death from Life/Death is also OK but if you can just play reanimate.

Spell Pierce is generally gonna be better than Censor. 1 mana protects your combo better, and 2 mana to pay means you can hit their tempo.

For threats, generally you play about 10 reanimator targets. Chancellor of the Annex is generally a staple. Good reanimation target and protects your first reanimation/slows down your opponent. Iona, Shield of Emeria, Tidespout Tyrant, Grave Titan, Sire Of Insanity, Inkwell Leviathan, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur (a less good sire) Sphinx of the Steel Wind, Blazing Archon are also good targets. Reanimator targets need to be big, game winning, hard to remove or shut off an entire line of play like these all do.

If you want to be really really lulzy with Buried Alive you can build a graveyard pile of Oona, Queen of the Fae and Worldgorger Dragon. Use Necromancy or Animate Dead on dragon and you create a loop of exiling everything, and returning it to play. This includes the animate dead, so the dragon dies, dead comes back and targets dragon, and you can use this combo to generate infinite mana, then finally have the animate dead come back with Oona, and use the infinite mana to deck someone.

For your sideboard, you've got Chain of Vapor for hitting graveyard hate stuff. Then I would pack your sideboard with stuff to protect your combo more, like Dispel

Cabal Therapy is not modern legal though, it is a great card. I wish it was.
