I'm still trying to figure out how you got 11.17

total - 10.18

Those were the original things I was looking for that you said you had. In terms of adding up to my end, I've found this stuff:

Add onto the previous amount brings it to 21.14. I'm still looking to see if I missed anything. Also, were the basis you found the artworks I had mentioned in my binder?

Yes, but the storm copies are never cast. You cast the original Ground Rift that triggers Kiln Fiend and place the copies directly on the stack. The copies are not actually cast. But because they are individual spells, you can still exile them to Nivmagus Elemental.

Does that actually work with Ground Rift? Storm puts copies of a spell on the stack, Nivmagus Elemental says exile a spell...?

Nice deck though, always liked Kiln Fiend type decks.

akaniu96 Thanks for the help! I had no idea Increasing Vengeance was even a card. Plus, the Nivmagus Elemental combo is awesome. For cantrips, would you recommend swapping out 2 Hidden Strings or Divination for Sleight of Hand?

When you say Kiln Fiend is "expensive here," are you referring to MTGO? It's pretty expensive there relatively, but is chump change in paper. I'm going to be perfectly honest: I see Spellheart Chimera as a trap. I have never liked that card; three toughness on something that slow is a tremendous liability. If you're trying to decide between Nivmagus Elemental and the Chimera, I say go with the elemental. I've played with it before, and found it to perform very well in general. I didn't suggest the card because I honestly thought it was more expensive than Kiln Fiend, as opposed to $0.15 (or 2.05 tix!!) cheaper. Definitely cut the Chimera if you hope to win quickly enough to deal with the more powerful endgame strategies of other decks. Instead, focus on preventing blockers by granting unblockable or tapping down defenders. That's a better evasion plan than hoping your X/3 (with known power, as opposed to a Kiln Fiend or the like when it swings) connects before being bolted. I'd say with absolute confidence that you want some other gameplan than the Chimera unless you're playing Izzet self-mill; it can work, but it's a totally different deck from what you have so far.

ppledger and InquisitorBlunt Thank you so much for your suggestions. They were really useful. I did some modifications based on things you said. I hope it got better than before. Some sugestions are out of my budget, so i didn't put it on.

I really like flashbacks, but in this case, after flashbacking, i must exile the spell, what's is not good for Spellheart Chimera, the main creature of the deck, it can get really strong, and have flying and trample.

I'm also considering Nivmagus Elemental a strong card, but it can go together with the Chimera. I could change the spells and put more flashback spells and the Nivmagus Elemental, but i'll need to remove the Chimera.

What do you guys think? Should I stay with the chimera? or Nivmagus + flashbacks? (With flashbacks i could also deal out more damage with Guttersnipe)

PS: Too bad i can't afford Kiln Fiend, it's expensive here :(

Nivmagus might be better. But i lose the novelty of my turn 2 win condition.

As an alternate deck, I would remove Blistercoil Weird and Paradise Mantle. Add Nivmagus Elemental and Grapeshot

Also, consider Nivmagus Elemental over Blistercoil Weird -- it can eat your storm copies from Ground Rift to become enormous, and you can search for it with Flamekin Harbinger!
