I didn't see what you ended up pulling the Cathartic Reunion for ? Looks like 56 cards for me, had you considered adding any of the cards I mentioned above Fyr?

I will say Cathartic Reunion and Faithless Looting seem great at first glance, but in reality they put you down cards (in the case of looting). Cathartic Reunion then at best only gives you costly filtering, so you might be better off trying to find other ways to actually accrue advantage, such as other planeswalkers like Chandra, Torch of Defiance, Outpost Siege, or with a relatively low curve you may feel adventurous with Vance's Blasting Cannons  Flip (this has the downside of not letting you play lands and not having a potential second mode).

Hahaha I didn't even think of the flavor that Cathartic Reunion brings with the scenario; Absolutely beautiful indeed! I'm having a hard time fitting it in though, replace Chart A Course?

Solid call on sideboarding Spell Pierce. I'm thinking Abrade and Hungry Flames are good exchanges, especially if he ends up running a creature light strategy.

Lands will be fixed, currently a place holding. Highland Lake will make it in definitely. I was on the fence with Harnessed Lightning and Aether Hub because of the budget aspect to the build and not playing Glimmer of Genius, but I convinced myself to pick up copies for another deck so I'll probably exchange them into this build.

Thank you kindly, it is very much appreciated!

Cathartic Reunion is probably better than Wild Guess.

SpremePhantasm I think Cryptic Serpent looks awesome but at most 3 copies, probably just 2 right? and Unsummon has been like stinking awesome since it is such a strong tempo play. Since I am playing the Firebrand Archers I kind of want to play my spells rather than just having them in the graveyard. Same with Riddleform. So I don't think Strategic Planning is where I want to be, especially at sorcery speed. Cathartic Reunion could be awesome, not sure how to cut for that though. Maybe cut the Censors? Thoughts from anyone are appreciated!

Actually, that 45% chance if there being not-a-draw-spell on top of deck is absolutely on purpose; I wanted to maximize the number of utility cards and lands in the deck without compromising its explosivity. Its also why Cathartic Reunion is main-boarded instead of Tormenting Voice. Given that I draw so many dead cards even after scrying, etc, it is exceedingly rare that I ever am forced to discard anything too sorely missed, and the extra card drawn is always welcome. Also, I always have enough cards in hand to cast reunion, so that is not unhappy an issue. I do appreciate the idea, though! Cathartic reunion just works better here, at least according to my playtesting.

That makes sense. Also there is a roughly 45% chance of a not-draw spell so I don't know what to do about that but something to consider? Try Tormenting Voice insted of Cathartic Reunion, discarding 2 is sometimes unreasonable.

The Fiend is definitely slower if you aren't ramping so I agree there.

In red I'd strongly recommend Cathartic Reunion and/or Tormenting Voice to net card draw while triggering discard at the same time.
