THANK YOU! JESUS, NOT BEING ABLE TO REMEMBER THAT CARD WAS KILLING ME
Nivmagus Elemental + pacts...? thats genius

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.

So to start off I am not super experienced with a Kiln Fiend style deck but I shall try to be helpful and I guess I will make a list of points to make it more clear.
-Blustersquall is a good card but I am not sure that it is good enough to be in a constructed deck. Also, this deck needs a cantrip which would net you card advantage as well as pumping whichever creature you have on the battlefield. So drop 4 Blustersquall for 4 Serum Visions.
-If you want to play a pump spell, Mutagenic Growth > Titan's Strength. Yes Titan's Strength adds one more power but you must spend a mana to do so whereas with Mutagenic Growth it only costs 2 life, which saves mana for other spells.
-I believe that 16 creatures is too much and that 3-4 mana creatures are too expensive. So maybe drop Fluxcharger and Nivix Cyclops then add Blistercoil Weird, Nivmagus Elemental, or Thing in the Ice Flip but my suggestion is Thing in the Ice Flip. For the remaining 4 cards, I would add 2 Apostle's Blessing and 2 Sleight of Hand.
Blood Moon For when you are playing against decks where the majority of their mana bases are non basic lands.
Pyroclasm For small creature decks.
Shattering Spree For artifact decks.
Surgical Extraction For removing threats that you have a tough time removing.
Young Pyromancer For swinging wide with a lot of tokens.

Even though I do like the 20/20/20 deck spread, and I didn't see it was a "Budget" deck.... So,.....
do you need 4x Mercurial Geists and 4x Mistfire Adept's? Geist at 2x maybe and a 3X of Mistfire's? add in 3x more Instant/Sorceries. maybe some Pillar of Flame or something that Exiles if it kills it, Magma Spray???... for , That could lightning bolt + Pillar and Exile a 5/5 Creature...???
The Monastery was my first thought for this deck too. "Like A Glove" (wink wink)
you like the Blistercoil Weird over the Nivmagus Elemental??? for stuff like "Prowess" and "Whenever CAST".... even if the spell is Exiled, it would still count for being CASTED and Trigger them........ Guttersnipe???. I like the more permanent 2X +1/+1 Counters.
Would Satyr Firedancer work in here?
and as was kinda "Harshly" mentioned in a previous post..... you might need a Mana/Land fix... R/U Temple with the Scry (I forget the name right now, brain fart!), I like it? Sulfur Falls maybe??

For a casual deck that's fun and good for beginners I'm going to suggest many packages and try to stay budget but some cards are expensive.
Scry Package: Some scry and burn like Magma Jet to get ripple going, OH! maybe Thunderous Wrath, sucks in your hand, but with scry it does work. Riddle of Lightning/Stormchaser Chimera would be interesting with those higher cost cards. Other scry cards are Voyage's End, Augury Owl, Omenspeaker, Geist of the Archives is good to slow down the game, there's also Mystic Speculation and Serum Visions but these are more expensive.
Aggro/Blitz/Burn: Monastery Swiftspear, Kiln Fiend, Lava Spike, Titan's Strength, Temur Battlerage, Assault Strobe, Mutagenic Growth, Artful Dodge, Aqueous Form, Distortion Strike, Akroan Crusader, Young Pyromancer, Bedlam Reveler, Nivmagus Elemental protects against counterspells, Rush of Adrenaline, Grim Lavamancer, Lightning Bolt.
