Focus on cutting down your cards to 100 first. From there test and revise, see which card is your weakest link. What card are you not happy to see and what card are you happy to see. Work backwards in terms of efficiency. What is your main storm combo? Your alternative?

Start with 36 lands, add in your main lines of winning, add in your back up line, than start adding pieces. The community here can help you as well but you have to know what you want to do. As for recommendation on cuts, here is a list that I see that is the weakest links.

Pyromancer's Goggles, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Archaeomancer, Rise from the Tides, Mystic Speculation, Mystic Retrieval, Mizzium Mortars, Invoke the Firemind, Infernal Plunge, Ignite Memories, Howl of the Horde, Empty the Warrens, Devastation Tide, Bribery, Blatant Thievery, Will Kenrith, Jaya Ballard, Jace's Sanctum, Metallurgic Summonings, Wild Ricochet, Opt, Insidious Will, Firemind's Foresight, Cryptic Command, Counterflux, Comet Storm

The above list is one of either things, it's too redundant, doesn't help your plan to storm, doesn't add any value, or it's too high cost on storm turns. Cut the cards first before thinking of swaps, if you keep on adding cards you won't be able to refine and get too clustered in deciding. Hope that helps.

Hi Modern_Brews,

I've run Mind's Desire it's amazing. I've also ran Ignite Memories. The reason they are not in the build is 1) I don't like the randomness of them (in an Infinite Storm situation, it's just another win-con of which I have others, but it is one way) 2) Outside of an Infinite Storm situation it's high CMC and low ability as a "stand on it's own". As a guide I value cards that have utility outside of the combos (although some don't), I will agree this one is worth it, just didn't make my cut 3) I don't actually need the Storm ability in an Infinite Storm situation anyway, and it bother some other players, when I factored that against my needs to win, I didn't end up needing it.

Spellseeker is fabulous, Tutor a Merchant Scroll and then a Firemind's Foresight to Tutor Reiterate + Comet Storm + Mystical Tutor > Turnabout | Infinite Mana + Infinite Damage. Thanks for the excellent suggestion, I'll try and figure out where she slots in later this week, also being a Wizard is a bonus, perfect!

Hey amigo, I was checking out your deck. It looks fun. I’ll probably give you a more detailed help comment later, but at the moment I think there is one card that needs to be in there as a win-con.

Ignite Memories, it’s won me many-a-game and I have played it in several different playgroups. I feel like you should definitely check it out and give it

Hi Krankkx,

Thanks for the comment. Grapeshot is a great card, I would recommend it as an include.

There are 2 specific reasons I don't use it in my build, 1) It has the word Storm on it and people don't like that, and I really don't need Storm to win, I can do it anyway; and 2) By itself, outside of a "Spell-Storm" scenario, it's not all that great, most cards I want to have derived value, in any situation, or at least that's part of the evaluation

Other Storm cards like Ignite Memories or Mind's Desire also work great as finishing as well, so you compare power levels with your Grapeshot for evaluation.

Do you think I have too many X spells? I’ve been thinking about that a lot and comparing my list with others.

I like your list a lot, I’ve been considering making mine more of storm deck with Ignite Memories and Empty the Warrens.

This isn't really a storm deck. It's a quasi-storm combo deck that relies on creature swarm for a win-condition. If you want to go full on storm you definitely need cards like Aetherflux Reservoir, Mind's Desire, and Ignite Memories. Those are all excellent storm win conditions.

Other attributes of a storm deck help you renew your hand so you can keep casting spells. Reforge the Soul, Wheel of Fate, and Windfall are all affordable.

You'll also want to untap your lands repeatedly so you can keep casting. Add in Rude Awakening and Turnabout.

If you're trying to do storm, you need to go all in. Otherwise, if you're doing a true combo-deck, drop the storm aspects to make it more focused.

I feel like you could do well to put a Laboratory Maniac, Ignite Memories, or Grapeshot as there are multiple ways to storm out.

Have you considered either Ignite Memories, Mind's Desire, and Aetherflux Reservoir? These might be slower to pull off, but they could be rewarding (Grapeshot too)? Idk. I'm not a competitive player, so I'm not sure how they'd fare.
