The Five cards I would suggest to max out on your devil spells and damage output. Number 1 Impact Tremors adds a lot of value for playing token generating spells. Number 2 is Goblin Bombardment , this offers you responses to explosions and such that provide you with extra damage output. Third is Bonus Round doubles up your instant and sorcery spells providing extra damage and nice combos. Fourth is Gratuitous Violence , doubled creature damage for you. Fifth cards is Purphoros, God of the Forge , works the same as impact tremors with more value plus hard to remove since it has indestructible. Cards like Battle Hymn and Pyretic Ritual could also find a place but that's more play preference and assessing if you need the additional mana for your combos or win cons to function properly

I think you build a casual deck not a modern deck, so here are a few upgrades for u that would make it more powerful, but not to pricey:

Only a few suggestions.

Here ya go, Derrick,

Where is Gamble

Ramp or extra mana

Fellwar Stone , Fire Diamond , Marble Diamond , MindStone, Sword of the Animist , Thought Vessel , Hardened Berserker , Treasonous Ogre , Neheb, the Eternal , Neheb, Dreadhorde Champion Desperate Ritual , Pyretic Ritual , Seething Song ,

Target spells that are dope

Coordinated Assault , Enrage , Otherworldly Outburst is cool and you can loop it if the creature you buff dies making a token, Samut's Sprint , Titan's Strength , Accelerate , Aleatory , Chaotic Strike , Stun , Niveous Wisps , Carom , Formation gives banding which is spicy, Spiritualize , Stave Off , Bathe in Light , Feat of Resistance , Chaos Warp target tokens to get permanets from your deck for free, and is good removal.

Heroic/Prowess Creatures cuz value

Vanguard of Brimaz , Fabled Hero , Tethmos High Priest , Leonin Iconoclast , Arena Athlete , Akroan Line Breaker , Monastery Swiftspear , Soul-Scar Mage , Dragon-Style Twins ,

these are some cards I think you should look at, don't need all and some might not fit exactly but if you like them then put them in. Cut some lands you can go down to 34 if you add in more artifacts, which go great with paradox engine.

Cards I think you should replace: Emerge Unscathed rebound fucks with your commander it exiles them not letting you put them back into your hand; Aurelia's Fury really expensive to get any good use out of it, or if you want protection during your turns run Grand Abolisher or Silence ; Expose Evil is too slow of a draw engine Mentor of the Meek with the tokens you make is better for drawing; Burnished Hart and Solemn Simulacrum are meh, better to go with artifact ramp that can feed the paradox plan, plus artifact ramp is cheaper and faster; speaking of artifacts Boros Cluestone and Boros Keyrune are good flavor options but aren't that good as other artifacts; Inferno Titan and Sun Titan are good creatures but don't fit into the game plan as well better to put things that help with the gameplan.

Thanks Kevin! Skirk Prospector just serves a different purpose; it's for storming off, though it does require setup (turn before to generate a mana). I have been considering cutting it for Pyretic Ritual . And likely one of the various Chrome Mox variants would be best in the slot, but I think those are a bit too competitive/expensive for me.

Here is a list --> Storm List

Essentially, the storm deck as you have seen is attempting to cast a critical mass of spells. Now, while there is a deck that aims to Grapeshot following playing a ton of 0-drop artifacts known as Cheerios, which if your friend lost to this deck on turn two as you say, then this was the deck he played against Cheerios List, I happen to play both of these decks and the more popular aptly named deck Storm is the one that requires the most explanation. That deck can win on turn 3 in a perfect world though often takes a little bit longer to set itself up. The basic idea is to play a cost reducer on turn two in the form of either Goblin Electromancer or Baral, Chief of Compliance and untap on turn 3 with 2 lands. From here the deck has 12 'ritual' effects (named after Dark Ritual which sees play in the legacy version of the deck), in Pyretic Ritual , Desperate Ritual , and Manamorphose which all thanks to the cost reducer net mana, meaning that as you cast these spells you not only raise your storm count, but also are going mana positive.

After these first few rituals the Storm then likely will, in the most basic version of events, cast Gifts Ungiven getting likely the three rituals and Past in Flames . Now, no matter what you chose to do with the gifts pile they will have access to Past in Flames to flashback and then recast all the rituals and other spells they have already casted. Then, once again going mana positive, will cast Gifts Ungiven to grab a win-con, either Grapeshot or Empty the Warrens , and three other cards depending on what is needed to guarantee a win (that is where it gets complicated and discussing these gifts piles are not necessary for giving an overview of the deck). By this time your storm count will wither be at 20 or close to and you simply cast Grapeshot , with the mana you have netted previously, to win the game, potentially doing the Remand trick mentioned above.

That is basically how it works, its about resolving as many spells as possible whilst accumulating mana to cast more expensive spells to essentially repeat the process until the win can be searched out.

Cheerios on the other hand, which if your friend did lose on turn 2 is the more likely culprit, makes use of zero mana artifacts to raise their storm count. One does this after resolving a Sram, Senior Edificer or Puresteel Paladin , meaning as you play a bunch of 0-mana equipment you draw cards. One then casts a Mox Opal and then casts Retract to do it all again and repeat until Grapeshot is found and is cast with two Mox Opal or lands.

Hello, once more I have found more potent cards: Incinerate and Pyretic Ritual and finally the best card Lotus Bloom .

whats the point of Hanweir Battlements ? I also suggest stronger control spells like Negate Spawning Breath doesn't seem as good as Desperate Ritual or Pyretic Ritual Manamorphose might also be a good addition to have, or Goblin Electromancer or Baral, Chief of Compliance

SamsWrath on My LGS's #1 hated deck

If you really want to take this deck to the next level then you need all of the fast mana and tutors: Mana Crypt , Mana Vault , Grim Monolith , Mox Diamond , Mox Opal , Chrome Mox , Mox Amber , Talisman of Indulgence , Lotus Petal , Dark Ritual , Cabal Ritual , Pyretic Ritual , Desperate Ritual , Rite of Flame , Culling the Weak , Infernal Plunge , Lake of the Dead , Bubbling Muck , Rain of Filth , Grim Tutor , Imperial Seal , Vampiric Tutor and Diabolic Intent .

Since you're already running Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker you might as well add in Zealous Conscripts , Lightning Crafter and Combat Celebrant because they all go infinite with Kiki.

Rakdos is also the color combination you need for Worldgorger Dragon + Dance of the Dead , Animate Dead or Necromancy infinite combo. Use Buried Alive or Entomb to pitch one of the Kiki combos or to pitch the dragon and then use one of the enchantments to start the combo. Be sure with Dragon combo to have another creature in the GY or you draw the game with an uninterruptible infinite combo. Other cards that help these combos are Victimize and Final Parting .
