Permafrost thx for the suggestions. I'm not sure about Lobber Crew, as I only have 4 multicolored cards in the entire deck. But I like Nettle Drone a lot more because it has 3 power, it can tap to do dmg, and I have many colorless spells. Good call! I think I'll take out Sheoldred, Whispering One because it's much better in a control deck (here, the card is too slow).

The way I've built the deck (very aggressively) means that the deck can't run out of steam, even for a bit. So I'm reluctant to take out card draw (Syphon Mind).

I really like Torment of Hailfire, maybe try that in place of Syphon Mind. You wont get card draw from it, but for the same cost, each player will be losing two cards or some life. I would also include some repeatable damage, cards like Lobber Crew or Nettle Drone. These both have the chance of untapping to do more damage with can ramp you even further.

@Halogenetic: Thank you for taking the time to comment on my deck. I decided to take a look and upvote yours as well. However I would recommend one change. I would change Mirran Spy out for Nettle Drone. Mirran Spy is a strictly worse Zephyr Scribe in this deck as it doesn't have the additional ability to draw for combo pieces and it also can't be used as the lethal part of the combo. Nettle Drone has the exact same ability as Mirran Spy in this deck but also is able to be used on the other side like Firebrand Archer and Reckless Fireweaver. That was the main reason I didn't run Battered Golem or Mirran Spy in the list I made 2 years ago; they just didn't do enough for the combo.

The deck from 2 years ago, not the one you commented on.

Awesomesocks20: Nettle Drone can replace either Zephyr Scribe or Reckless Fireweaver in the combo. What this means is that it can take the place of one of the 2 cards in the combo.

It can replace Zephyr Scribe as the Banishing Knack/Retraction Helix target because it will untap every time you play one of your 0 CMC Artifacts such as Tormod's Crypt.

For this same reason it can replace Firebrand Archer if you have a Zephyr Scribe or another Nettle Drone in play and just tap it for it's ping whenever you play the 0 CMC artifacts in the infinite combo.

With your Impact Tremors, Genesis Chamber would be a nice include for extra burn per creatures. Plus untaps Nettle Drone.

Quick question! How does the Nettle Drone / Ancestral Statue combo kill a table? Do you need to be playing against 4+ people to consistently be able to generate 4 colorless off Rakdos and drone to bounce the statue?

You may want to try Thermo-Alchemist or Nettle Drone over Lobber Crew. You'll never get to untap Lobber Crew with its ability. Whereas both Thermo-Alchemist and Nettle Drone can hit multiple times for a bigger main phase 2.

Shivan Gorge adds more opponent damage.

Switch Succumb to Temptation for Phyrexian Arena or budget option Underworld Connections for repeated card draw

Consider cycling lands for extra card draw e.g Canyon Slough, Desert of the Fervent, Barren Moor or similar.

Replace Shock with Searing Blood

Perhaps Rift Bolt could replace Lightning Strike as a quasi political tool?

Seismic Assault or budget option Molten Vortex ditches useless lands.

Swap Murder for Terminate or Dreadbore. Or use Seal of Doom as a political tool.

Nettle Drone and Ancestral Statue also combo kill with Rakdos.

And Torment of Scarabs would be fun!
