Lava Spike can't hit creatures, meaning it's not strictly better than Volcanic Hammer.

So the combo, cast Lava Spike and splice Desperate Ritual onto it. Splice onto arcane is goofy but basically what it does is add the effects of the card with splice onto the original arcane spell. So you get a spell that says "deal 3 damage to target player, add " Now copy that spell with the guildmage and you have infinite damage!

maybe cut void snare, flame rift, vision skeins, words of wisdom, smash to smithereens. Some combination of this stuff.

Brainstorm isn't great copied, I'll give you that. but it is a strong card by itself and worse case it's draw a card.

Thank you very much for your input :) I didn't feel too strongly about Brainstorm with my minimal amount of deck shuffling and less thrilled about copying it. I'd like your thoughts on the matter.

Thank you for the tip with Lava Spike and Desperate Ritual. If you don't mind could you slowly walk me through the specific way to go infinite? Just to make sure I'm doing it right. I'll throw that in the deck for sure.

As for the creature wipe spells I figured they are pretty strong so I might want all 3 for consistentcy sake. What are your thoughts on it?

And lastly, what cuts would you suggest to fit those cards? Maybe one of the creature wipes and a normal damage spell.

Brainstorm is a common in it's orginal printing

Grixis Panorama is another common terramorphic expanse

what decks are you playing against that you need so many Blazing Volley type cards?

Lava Spike with Desperate Ritual spliced onto it is infinite damage with the guildmage.

Treasure Cruise is a common and great

Arcane Denial might be better than cancel

Looks really fun! Clever idea and well put together deck, I have a Jori En, Diving on a Budget deck that's running on a budget and could use another izzet mage's eyes on it if you have the time. Thanks!

Sorry, the Lava Spike was supposed to be Incendiary Flow. I suppose you could also go with just plain ol' Lightning Bolt if you wanted.

I originally had those Soulfire's when they were like $10-$20, so now that the deck is very affordable, I think it would be great for an entry level deck. What I want to do to improve this deck is:
