ThallionDarkshine on Atraxa's Otherworldly Army

Both Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip and Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip feel like they don't really do much in a superfriends deck, though Lili would be ok if you upped your creature count a bit. Nissa, Worldwaker also feels fairly weak without many forests. Thrummingbird is a great way to tick up your planeswalkers. Nevinyrral's Disk is definitely the best board wipe for a superfriends deck, since it basically destroys all nonplaneswalkers. Fogs get much better in superfriends, since you can protect them long enough to ult. Druid's Deliverance also proliferates, which can help them ult even quicker. Constant Mists is a great repeatable fog, as is Dawnstrider. Sphere of the Suns and Pentad Prism are some great pieces of ramp with Atraxa.

Yes, chandra is not cheap at the moment.
But its likely shell will settle below $20 once she rotates out of standard (i would bet she will be between $13 - $15), since the decks that she significantly improves are few and far between, not to mention that they don't boast high number of players.

Dragonstorm has some potential.
(I don't mean the deck that broke standard, but the card)

As of now, storm decks with Baral, Chief of Compliance/Goblin Electromancer + Grapeshot + Gifts Ungiven reign supreme. And Dragonstorm doesn't even come close.
There are a few reasons:
1# - "baral storm" needs fewer ritulas, thus it can play more card filtering (Serum Visions, Sleight of Hand... etc.), as such it is more consistent.
2# - Seething Song is banned. (Hence multiple cards are needed to achieve its effect)
3# - Dragonstorm can't be used (effectively) with Past in Flames
4# - Dragonstorm demands more card slots, as it needs dragon cards in the deck

In my humble opinion Dragonstorm can become a viable deck if:
A. - It gets better card filtering, maybe some that doubles as creature removal
B. - It becomes "dragon tempo", that uses Dragonstorm to threaten the opponent, while its till able to win the game without that card being cast - for example on the back of its dragon cards.

(The latter would however require a very large paradigm shift on how the deck should be played, and the ditching of Lotus Bloom, Pentad Prism and the like which just sit on the field (or hand) doing nothing before you play the payoff card.)

This looks pretty nice! Ive got a few suggestions that I think would improve it slightly.

One, Darksteel Relic is, in my opinion, far and away the best artifact to try to bounce, primarily because it avoids cards like Smash to Smithereens.

That being said, Ensoul Artifact should be at least a two-of, mostly so you can try to bait control into removing or countering something not crucial to your wincon. It also gets around Fatal Push (not Path to Exile, unfortunately, but youd get a free land at least), a must for a deck that doesnt have anything else that cant be pushed.

In terms of the combo itself, Id add Battered Golem as a two of, replacing some of your other pieces (just for more diversity), and replace Reckless Fireweaver with Altar of the Brood. Altar is simply cheaper, harder to remove, and doesnt require any colored mana.

Also, I think you were into something with Grapeshot. Youve got to pay for it the turn you go off, but its far superior to Molten Nursery in terms of efficiency. Its only two mana, can still be cast for infinite damage, and even cant be countered by most spells, due to storm.

In terms of cards to cut, Accorder's Shield for the Relic, and Izzet Charm for scissors. As previously stated, Reckless Fireweaver should be replaced with Altar of the Brood, and at least three Molten Nursery with Grapeshots.

I would avoid using Pentad Prism. Its too risky of an option with cards like Spell Pierce in the format; its better to not have to invest the mana in order to get it back again.

On a separate note, I like the use of Zephyr Scribe as a combo piece. Dont see that card often.

Thats my two cents, good luck with this deck!

In response to bouncing it, remove the two counters to add two mana of any two different colors to your mana pool. Then, it goes back to your hand. Spend the mana to play it again with two counters.

I imagine a game where you're stuck on two lands: turn 2 Pentad Prism. Turn 3: Reckless Fireweaver. Turn 4: remove a counter to Zephyr Scribe. Turn 5: remove the last counter to Retraction Helix and use your lands pay to cast it for the combo win.

Still not bad.

Move Tormod's Crypt to the sideboard. Run Pentad Prism instead. It can accelerate in multiples, and it's still free when comboing out.

Maybe you could use Pentad Prism or Sphere of the Suns?
