Monastery Swiftspear seems like a better fit than Nivmagus Elemental. You want to cast the spells not exile them that way you trigger the creature abilities. So it just seems like a better fit. Cool deck +1.

Also worth noting. Player 4 casts Wheel of Fortune. You (player 1) activate Lion's Eye Diamond. Player 2 and 3 pass priority (they didn't actually have counter spells). Now Player 4 gets priority, because they have not had priority since you took an action (even though that action didn't use the stack). Now when they pass priority Wheel of Fortune resolves. It's unlikely Player 4 will do anything, as they didn't before you activated Lion's Eye Diamond, but they might want to counter their own spell now that you're handless (maybe they have Nivmagus Elemental on the battlefield), and they will have that opportunity.

I'm asking because Possibility Storm doesn't specify that it only resolved if the initial spell is successfully exiled this way.

also the exile spell creature is Nivmagus Elemental. my first modern deck ran him as a 4x in a similar kind of list as here but with a ton of the pact spells (they were cheap then) and Ground Rift (you can exile off the copies). many turn 2 kills :D

Nivmagus Elemental plus cipher cards is one of my favorite combos. Also, I don't see it mentioned anywhere but I hope people are aware that enchanting Thermo-Alchemist with Curiosity triggers the card draw. Which is a nasty combo :) Great deck!

I think you could seriously consider cutting 1x temur battle rage, 2x tainted strike for 3x gutshots in the main. other creatures that would work really well with this deck are Nivmagus Elemental and Blistercoil Weird . Another general approach is to cut out the death's shadow and a couple terminates for storm cards: manamorphose, pyretic ritual/desperate ritual and some low cost haste like Crimson Wisps or Expedite.
