Lens of Clarity
You may look at the top card of your library and at face-down creatures you don't control. (You may do this at any time.)

The deck looks great! I'm really excited to build my own version.
You have Flare, Solar Blast, Zap and Spark Jolt twice in your deck.
I don't think you can cycle Solar Blast from exile. You can't discard cards from exile.
Eternal Warrior is the cheapest way to give your commander Vigilance in Red. I'm not sure if it's worth running over equipment, but it is more efficient even if it is riskier.
Faithless Looting seems like a great option for you deck.
Empty the Warrens could also be strong in a deck full of cheap spells and rituals.
Pyromatics is maybe another good way to get some cheap triggers.
I wish there was a good way to manipulate the top of the deck more consistently than with Scry, like a Future Sight -type effect. Maybe Lens of Clarity with shuffle effects and Shenanigans ? Probably too cute.
You are running a large amount of X-spells. This isn't necessarily a bad thing, but they are mana intensive, making it less likely that you'll be able to take advantage of the exiled cards after it. Meteor Shower seems particularly bad, and I could see Builder's Bane being more efficient as a Smash to Smithereens .
Seems like you still have lots of room to play in. Maybe you can afford to add in some Double-Strike spells? You talk about it, but I don't see any in your deck. Temur Battle Rage is usually the go-to, after that there's Uncaged Fury and Assault Strobe .

Thanks for the suggestions!
However, I don't really get Lens of Clarity , since I'm probably just going to mill anyway :)
Is it so when I have somthing good on top or so that if I see a land I can use my mana in a different way?

If you're asking for tips on what you should buy, cards like Lantern of Insight can help you make sure you're not going to give that Rakdos, Lord of Riots player a free Emrakul. Lens of Clarity could guarantee a sexy 7 drop rather than lands, and maybe more artifact ramp just so you can hard cast some of those fatties if they end up in you hand: Mind Stone, Fellwar Stone, Star Compass, Gilded Lotus and Thran Dynamo are some sold budget options. Also: run more eldrazi! If you don't want to fork out your life's savings for an Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, a Pathrazer of Ulamog or It That Betrays are some thicc boys.

Suggestions from me:
1) Cut Lens of Clarity it is cute but not good.
2) Cut Perish the Thought its not bad but there must be better options.
3) Altar of the Brood? have I missed something? Why play it?
4) Cut Evolving wilds for normal swamp or Cabal Pit.
5) Sins of the Past? is this really good. It cost a lot of mana.
6) Tainted Remedy to much of a meta card. If this cards is good vs your playgroup play it. But if you are going up vs random opponents I could cut it.
I also like how you are more focused on storm then Gonti, I think that is the right chioce. It feels like your are doing the same thing as Jeleva. Sadly I think Kess or Jeleva will do what your deck is trying to do better.
