Vinifera7 on It Puts the Lotion on the Skin

Apparently you can't get infinite mana with Sol Ring + Pili-Pala + Quicksilver Elemental in the cage. You could tap and untap Mairsil as many times as you want, but you would be breaking even on mana because you have to pay blue for the Quicksilver ability each time.

In order to generate mana, the tap ability needs to give you at least three mana. You could use Basalt Monolith, Thran Dynamo or Gilded Lotus.

I would say put in Mox Opal it's metalcraft would be fine due to how many artifacts and one mana of any colour is nothing to sneeze at... Gilded Lotus is also something I would recommend, it's a bit pricey but the extra mana is very important... But keep Sol Ring the extra mana it gives makes makes everything worth it, you'll always have a need for generic mana and this satifies it always... If you're going to remove it, replace it with one of the two i mentioned above

I'd put a few more mana rocks in, they really do go a long way. A all time favorite of mine is Darksteel Ingot but other good ones for mana fixing are Coalition Relic and Gilded Lotus. And maybe Cryptolith Rite since you don't have a lot to play on turn 2.
Anyway nice job on the deck looks fun. +1

Thank you for the suggestion, I will look at working it in. What do you think about swapping out the Doubling Cube for Gilded Lotus or Sol Ring?

Hi Spirits

Right now Vessel of Endless Rest serves as some mini graveyard hate, but I haven't playtested the deck to the point where I feel confident that it belongs. I have some different mana fixers on the way to replace the taplands so Vessel might not be necessary in the long run. I swapped Gilded Lotus for Talisman of Indulgence for the same reason.

I put Quicksilver Amulet, Strionic Resonator, and Panharmonicon as a way to build off Kaalia's ability and get my A/D/D's into action more reliably. Unfortunately, I have yet to put any of them to good use, but I haven't playtested them enough to say for sure that they don't belong.

Authority of the Consuls is coming out for something better. I had Cloudshift in mind but Reconnaissance seems like a good option too. Vampire Nighthawk is specifically what i had in mind for those types of cards!

I hear you on Swiftfoot Boots, I keep getting them mixed up with Lightning Greaves so I accidentally ordered extra of the latter when I meant to buy the former. I do have a pair of boots coming in the mail though! And yeah, after sleeping on it, I'd rather have a big A/D/D than Thalia.

I'll have to update this when I get the new cards into the deck. Until then, thanks for all your suggestions!

Well first for the good news. You got most of the expensive cards out of the way, so that's good. Te thing is that this is both an Ad Nauseam deck and not an Ad Nauseam deck and its not a storm deck in its current state. So if you wanted to lean into both Ad Nauseam and storm (which I think you should) You would need to remove a bunch of the spells that cost more than 3 mana and include some free spells and other large instant speed card advantage spells. These are the staples of storm decks. It isn't flash, it isnt Tendrils of Agony, its cards that help you cast many spells.

Cards that Need to go. Deadeye Navigator, Mulldrifter, Dig Through Time, Gush-unless you add Doomsday which you should, Future Sight, Leyline of Anticipation, Rhystic Study-its way too slow for this strategy, Tendrils of Agony, Treasure Cruise, Gilded Lotus, Vedalken Orrery, and Tezzeret the Seeker

Other cards that should be though about hard before including.
Guttersnipe, Peregrine Drake, all the red rituals-do you really have enough red to make use of them?, Turnabout-its expensive for the effect and usually there are better choices, Same for Paradoxical Outcome, without all the expensive cards As Foretold will probably be very lackluster when it comes out especially since you are trying to win fast, Past in Flames is the last one, it's very expensive when you have access to Yawgmoth's Will and usually 1 of these effects is good enough.

Now I have some suggestions on replacements. Helm of Awakening would be great for Mind's Desire and Hurkyl's Recall. It allows all of your 2 drop signets and talismans to be mana neutral which allows you to build massive storm counts. It also turns cards like Snap and Frantic Search mana positive. Speaking of that put in all 3 signets and both the talismans. Then add some card advantage, cards like Thirst for Knowledge and Fact or Fiction and Night's Whisper are far better than Rhystic Study. With all the untapping of lands a High Tide package would be good but you would need to add like 6-9 more islands but its very worth it. I have been play testing with Into the Roil and Remand as well. I find them to be super good at raising my storm count when I use them on my own spells/permanents. The last bit of advice I have is change Faithless Looting into a Dack Fayden. He combos super well with Notion Thief and can help you ramp.

Other than grabbing the Aetherflux Reservoir Tezzeret the Seeker seems like he's a bit slow. I get that he gives you mana but if you want a walker Dack Fayden would be a better choice. Also Gilded Lotus is better replaced by signets ie:Dimir Signet,Rakdos Signet in a storm build. And if you're adding Isochron Scepter Dramatic Reversal should be an auto include. especially with your number of rocks.
