Sadly there really isn't Storm in pauper, Empty the Warrens is banned. I know this site doesn't show it but see this: https://magic.wizards.com/en/game-info/gameplay/formats/pauper

Why are you not playing spells with storm ? I think you could play Empty the Warrens or Tendrils of Agony.(The copies made with storm are they played ? It could trigger Aetherflux Reservoir exponencialy)

Since you're going to be casting spells and have lots of enter the battlefield triggers, I feel like Empty the Warrens would be a great addition if you cast a lot of spells this turn. Especially if you need more etb triggers.

Of course, since it has storm, you can cast cheep etb effects and get more tokens for free!! 83

i think that norin does it better :/ and yea krenko has very little recursion and norin, slobad and daretti usually play with chaos better, it certainly makes it harder for you to burn out to run chaos but i already have a nekusar and norin chaos deck and i just wanted more colors, this deck has the advantage of Regrowth spells, token doublers and insane mana like Food Chain, plus its more versatile with spells such as Heroic Intervention

not to mention resolving Protean Hulk usually wins me the game, and Earthcraft allows me to tap the tokens for mana then sac them to food chain, prospector, skullclamp etc

i played a 1v1 game recently where i played my entire deck by casting a conspired Genesis Wave for 9, getting more than 10 permanents and putting a Past in Flames in graveyard, I then conspired Tooth and Nail to get the 4 6-7 cmc creatures into play with 8x tokens with all 3 token doublers out, i then saced protean hulk to tutor for Craterhoof Behemoth with Coat of Arms out and a total of 380 tokens for 760 power and toughness,

i then sacced around 20 tokens for mana, drew all 20 cards left in my deck with Fecundity, then used the mana to cast past in flames and conspire/Mirari every spell in my deck as well as having all of my creatures etb with purphoros and 8x tokens, come to think of it i could have easily have won with Altar of the Brood for 380 tokens plus the 22 creatures and wort

its more resilient and even faster than krenko in that it has green protectiom and conspired ramp spells, it is a hybrid deck that plays partially like krenko and partially like a storm deck, for example krenko cant cast Empty the Warrens for absurd amounts of mana and double the tokens and mana with green

I have a budget Izzet deck that uses similar cards: Izzet Ritual Storm. I started with the Mind vs. Might duel deck and used a lot of cards from that to create the first version of my current deck. I got my Goblin Electromancers, Peer Through Depths, Reach Through Mists, Empty the Warrens, and Grapeshot from that duel deck.Remand and Baral, Chief of Compliance were the most expensive cards I used. Bedlam Reveler looks like a fun card to play in this deck. I don't know about discarding your hand though, unless you have 3 or less cards already. +1 Upvote from me!

What no Chancellor of the Forge, Seething Song, Brightstone Ritual, Past in Flames, Empty the Warrens and Mana Geyser. But other than changing you entire deck to a storm deck, Sweet deck. If you want, check out my deck Purphoros, God of Hand Dumping for more ideas!

Hello, i would like to ask for some elaboration, as you stated that there are a lots of reasons why instant speed is significantly better than sorcery. (Since i think you could feel it as attack on your "authority", and i wan't the reasons, instead of debating who is more clever, i felt it more appropriate to bring up the issue here)

For me the most obvious benefit is being able to kill creatures with haste.
Either Goblin Guide & Monastery Swiftspear of burn, Reality Smasher of eldrazi tron, or the oh so elusive Vengevine in some dredge decks.

And may be able to kill a Goblin Electromancer/Baral, Chief of Compliance, before they could reduce the cost of Past in Flames - which is probably pretty fringe considering that all mana flares in that deck are instants.
Or maybe to fizzle them if they overspend the mana, and leave less for Grapeshot, or Empty the Warrens - thus punishing bad play.

Nearly forgot, manlands.

Is there anything else, that mandates instant speed removal?

Lets see, the decks i play againat are:

  • Titan Scapeshift. The usual one you will find online with added blue for Gifts Ungiven and Cryptic Command

  • Goblins. This is the usual goblin decks you'll find. He uses Guttersnipe and tries to deal damage through Dragon Fodder and Krenko's Command while having in the goblin that creates goblin tokens equal to the amount you already have(forgot the name. I think its Krenko but not sure right now))

  • Eldrazi Tron. Uses Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Karn, and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon. The main removal thwy usw against me is All Is Dust. Have Thought-Knot and the usual in it. Think can find the deck by going to meta decks on MtgGoldfish.

  • U/R Gifts. Storm deck. No changes to them other than 1 deck having Empty the Warrens sideboard and the other running 1 or 2 main.

  • Seismic Swans. Uses Seismic Assault and Swans of Bryn Argoll

  • W/R Burn. I'm not sure what he used in the deck. One card was some shrine that puts counters on it when you play red spells or on upkeep, then can sac to deal dmg equal to the counters on it. Sorry for not knowing much about it, he's only played it once.

  • Cascade Living End. Uses any 3 cost cascade spells and Living End the rest is a bunch of cycle creatures.

  • U/W Prowess. Built around Elusive Spellfist and tries to buff him until victory.

I think i've named all the decks. If i missed any i'll post them later.
