While there aren't any mono red merfolk, there are Jori En, Ruin Diver and Razorfin Hunter sporting some .

Great call on Mystic Speculation. I've been looking for something to run instead of Jori En, Ruin Diver and that would be perfect. Thanks!

Hey man, thanks for commenting again.

I agree that combo decks should have multiple win cons, and this one still does have a number of them via Rite of Replication, Reset/Reiterate combos, and even just casting a massive Epic Experiment can easily close out a game.

I also believe the deck runs a ton of card draw, tutors and deck looting... and Jori En, Ruin Diver is just way too slow in my play group as much as I like the card... the same is true for Pyromancer's Goggles.

I'll consider the Guttersnipe as I do like the Rite of Replication synergy you mentioned.

I've also thought about the Aetherflux Reservoir, it's just not a card I own and definitely requires some play testing... if I still ran storm it would 100% have to go in!

a combo deck should have multiple win con combos usealy

so maybe more draw

and then consider Guttersnipe as an alt win con, which also goes nicely with rite of replication.

and maybe Aetherflux Reservoir as another combo, doasnt work with copies but still.

Pyromancer's Goggles are also nice in general

Jori En, Ruin Diver is nice draw

also run Cyclonic Rift dont care what kind of deck you are runing this card is amazing and single handedly wins games not even raerly

not really .. i mean you can try to force it with cards like Baral, Chief of Compliance, Goblin Electromancer, Jori En, Ruin Diver, Past in Flames and cheap blue cantrips ... but even with rituals, blue and or just mana quickly becomes an issue for storming in non-mizzex/Yidris decks

Arjun, the Shifting Flame decks have the advantage of Mindmoiling everytime they cast a spell and can use Psychosis Crawler, Sphinx's Tutelage and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind to ping opponents lifetotals/decks multiple times a spell even if the storm fizzles.

that being said, The Locust God shines at drawing cards, and going wide with an army of hasty fliers ...Kindred Discovery on insect is a good start and has exponential growth with Alhammarret's Archive (draw 2 cards, make 2 locust, draw 4 cards, make 4 locust .. etc, just becareful as the loop is mantatory .. so Laboratory Maniac or a way to kill people before you lose is important before you start)

and cards mentioned in the above sections combined with Chasm Skulker, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Frantic Search, Whirlpool Warrior, Brainstorm, Rhystic Study, Whirlpool Rider and other cheap "wheels" may help you get value even if your storm doesnt quite get there.

The Cartouche has actually been really good in playtesting. It gave purpose to the Flameblade Adepts in the late game because it is rare that an enemy has two fliers and, if they do, we can toast em with adept.

Cartouche also allows our other 2 creatures that wouldn't otherwise be attacking to attack or block more efficiently.

Cartouche is also cheap and makes up for its own card. This synergises with Jori En, Ruin Diver because we're trying to cast many spells in one turn anyways.

I added Fiery Temper. That card looks like it would be amazing in this deck. I don't know why I didn't think of adding it before. Thanks so much for that suggestion.

Have any suggestions for the sideboard? I'm a pretty new Magic player so I don't know what's meta and stuff.

So cuccboi, a few things...I don't really like counterspell heavy decks, which means have four instants because I'm not running counters. The land choices are solid when viewed with the rest of the deck's build, and its already running six lands which tap for either or . I don't have to spend money on this, it is stuff I already own 90%, or more of already. Ugin is a solid boardwide. Again, running enchantments because instants are not critical in any way to my win con. Kozilek, Butcher of Truth is there to keep me from decking myself in case Laboratory Maniac is not out, and recycle the graveyard into the library. Between our decks, there are 146 different cards which are not basic lands. Of those, we are both running 21 of the same cards in our decks, and all but three of these are draw/wheel effects, its just that I have more of them than you do, and I run Psychosis Crawler(just like you do), and Molten Psyche to do damage based on that plan. I did like your inclusion of Chasm Skulker, Impact Tremors, Jori En, Ruin Diver, Kraum, Ludevic's Opus, and Ral Zarek though.

That said, I doubt your deck would do well in my meta, or mine well in your meta. It is mostly just an interesting window into how different people build decks. As to your time spend contemplating what actually works, glad that's working out for you, but I do not recall ever saying I was looking for a competitive deck, and its hard to gauge how good you are at offering advice when you've only got one deck listed, and no other constructive comments on any other decks here. You probably are not intending to come off as a know it all, Johnny-come-lately, but you really did here.
