HotShotDawg on Worldfire

I'm not sure if you are aware, but:

Gut Shot has no upside as opposed to a normal lightning bolt after you've cast Worldfire due to your one life.

If you want an alternate win-condition, assuming you suspend it with Jhoira of the Ghitu, Near-Death Experience is significantly better than Barren Glory since you won't have to time it perfectly.

As far a Firebolt, it is 1. not legal in modern, and 2. no better than a Lightning Bolt, since will be exiled when you cast Worldfire, and it costs 5 mana to flash back anyway, either requiring 14 mana or drawing 5 lands after worldfire.

I would not recommend playing Counterlash because sorcery is probably the least potent card type in modern, and a 6 mana counter is very bad.

Overall, seems interesting with some more work.

In my humble opinion, adding some cards like Counterlash will greatly increase the efficiency of your deck, since Ramos' ability is triggered by the colors in the spell instead of the colors spent to cast it. On a similar note, cards like General Tazri, which have multiple colors without them being in the casting cost, are another solid addition. Finally, the duel color cards from the lorewyn/shadowmore set(ie Fists of the Demigod, Deity of Scars, Ghastlord of Fugue, and Dominus of Fealty come to mind) are another cheap way to add colors.

My favorite way to cheez out a eldrazi titan is definitely Counterlash. Deny them a creature AND get a free titan too. What's not to love?

Spicy +1 Counterlash looks fun - i'd all most consider 1 copy of Boseiju, Who Shelters All just to make it uncounterable, and because you have the land searching mechanics for itAs a suggestion, if you want a cheap(ish) but still powerful combo finder: Gifts Ungiven.

Having said that, it looks awesome as is! good job man :D
