Lightning Storm still takes the cake, so long as you hold some lands in your hand, your opponent can kill themselves.

Fair enough!

The Lightning Storms are definitely better because your opponents will sometimes contribute to there own doom, but please consider the Muddle the Mixtures as a sideboard for decks heavy on counter.

Your Storm Hunter Deck looks sweet.

I will definitely throw Lightning Storm in for testing. Pretty sure it will do better than Seismic Assault.

About Muddle the Mixture: I don't think it is worth it. I usually do not have to mulligan to less than 4 cards in it's current state. However right now I am playing casual only. Should counters get more popular in my playgroup, I might change my opinion. I rarely play this deck, just because my playgroup hates it. It's just to annoying.

A perfect shuffle is 1 Wandering Fumarole 1 Reliquary Tower 1 Lightning Storm 1 Treasure Hunt and a combination of Mountains and Islands.

Sideboard isn't great, if you do use it add 3 Enter the Infinites and find ways to either cast more spells for free, take out the Treasure Hunts and Lightning Storms and a good deal of land, basically just make a entirely new deck.

With the current sideboard I would only ever use the Muddle the Mixtures or Faerie Conclaves.

P.S. The current price is just for main deck, not sideboard.

I decided I am going to test out a couple lootings, because it will also help hit the land drops.

Personally I'm a huge fan of Leyline of Sanctity and would highly recommend it for Mardu Nahiri. Non blue midrange decks are usually pretty easy to combo off on. Leyline of Sanctity stops Lightning Storm, Gifts Ungiven, Grapeshot, Charbelcher, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, and Lava Spike, just to name a few different decks off the top of my head. I'm running it without even having any access to white.

That much is true.

However if you plan playing control you will need some ways to interact with threats that are no permanents (aka. instants and sorceries).
Consequently playing blue for counterspells is somewhat necessary, if you don't like the idea of Lightning Storm or Gifts Ungiven killing you out of nowhere.Having red, blue and a third color is pretty hard to accomplish reliably while playing Blood Moon.

(Maybe its just my warped mindset, but i don't see midrange decks that happen to have slightly more removal, and slightly bigger creatures, as control. Control is the oppressive stuff, the draw go, and 8rack kind)
