Brainstorm is not legal in modern, nor is punishing fire. Have you considered Searing Blaze over Lightning Strike? The extra damage would be worth the switch once you get a hold of some more dual lands. Perplex is a dead draw when your opponent is top decking. At best it is a Counterspell. I would try Dash Hopes instead. Not only is it one mana cheaper, but you'll always get something out of it. You could add cards like Serum Visions to fuel your draws and your alchemist. Murder is a bit expensive. Try Dreadbore. It loses instant speed, but isn't double black and costs one less mana plus it handles planeswalkers. Good start on grixis control.

@StarwolfeTheGreen The fetch lands are the only way to get mountains from our deck into play untapped at instant speed. Which essentially lets us pay 1 life to potentially use Searing Blaze during our opponents turn. If you don't want to play with fetches just switch Searing Blaze for Searing Blood.

Thanks for the suggestions, guys! I totally forgot about Burst Lightning, as well as Wild Slash, Electrickery, and Tarfire. I'm really only looking for 1-mana cards, as my 2-slot is pretty full, but thanks for the other suggestions like Arc Trail and Searing Blaze. Which cards mentioned above do you guys think are the best?

Dispel doesn't have to hold the dam on its own, it just has to hit that one critical spell (that one Path to Exile, Cryptic Command, Terminate, Esper Charm, Gifts Ungiven, Searing Blaze etc).

You see where I'm going with this.

Other current lists opt for broader answers like Countersquall because they only run 3 tasigurs for big creatures and therefore encounter fewer situations where they have to defend their investment in one large threat. That's different in my build ;)

I would recommend both Searing Blaze and Lava Spike.

Here are a few other modern burn staples you might want to look at:

Eidolon of the Great Revel: Sure it hurts you a bit but burn decks want to win quickly before their life total becomes relevant anyway. Doesn't matter how low your life is if your opponent is at 0.

Grim Lavamancer: Usually this is only a 1 or 2 of but repeatable damage by using your spent burn spells is nice. Plus being able to exile your opponents graveyard is often helpful.

Searing Blaze: Removal AND damage to the face, what's not to love?
