kamarupa ~ You tend to forget how slow your deck is. You need so many cards to make it work and just a single Spoils of the Vault to tutur wont cut it.

You'll need to trade so much removal all the time and if a single Worldslayer hits you, you're out.I just don't see you get the time to deal with end of turn Collected Company and ordinary beatdown. But sure, any deck can beat any other deck if you get the perfect hand against it.

With this I don't try to be negative, I love your consept and I've tinkered a bit with it and Plunge into Darkness myself. Its not like it wont work but its just too slow and draw dependent : /

You only need 1 Lightning Storm and 3 Simian Spirit Guides since you're playing them after ad nauseum goes off, maybe another Pact of Negation to insure you don't get countered. I would run 4 Gitaxian Probe over Spoils of the Vault also, you don't want your life getting too low before you combo off (although that's more my personal preference).

No deck can be reckless with their life total against Burn. None. There is acceptable risk, which the proper hand for this deck is capable of pulling through, and then there's being reckless. The fact of the matter is that Turns 1-2 you're getting smacked in the face as you probably burn yourself - you have to be very careful with how much damage you're willing to take, and you have to hope that your cantrips pull the pieces together, and that a Spoils of the Vault doesn't go too long and put you in a position where you can be finished on the following turn. Nothing you have said is a truly convincing argument as to why Ad Nauseam should be favored against burn. And you shouldn't really use redundancy as a point in your favor when you need cards that perform 4 discrete functions in order to pull this off. Burn's cards all do 1 thing - if it's a consistency contest, Ad Nauseam loses.

If you want to take this argument to a definitive resolution, I suggest you log in to v2.untap.in here and we can see if you're right or not. My burn deck (which may not be the greatest, but it follows the meta trends, and I'm confident piloting it) is loaded and ready to go, and I use the same ID I do here. We can test it.

rothgar13 Spoils of the Vault naming Fling or Messenger's Speed when you have Angel's Grace or Phyrexian Unlife available to stop your death can be an extremely consistent turn 3 win now let's say they're on the draw... a few lists run a fun of Gemstone Caverns which in turn means they can do the exact same line of play on turn 2... now let's do the math.. average life after searching for one of these 2 cards is -20 Death's Shadow gets -x/-x where x is your life total so subtracting negative 20 from negative 20 makes +20, your Death's Shadow is a 33/33 creature..... turn 3 or 4 if this isn't lethal REGARDLESS of if they took damage then that's very very strange as the burn player is definitely not soul sisters with an explosive Martyr of Sands opening hand

I don't like mulliganing until I get a certain card. I'd try some Spoils of the Vault as Ad Nauseams 5-8. To play Legacy combo you need to be able to get past Daze, Force of Will, Counterspell, and Thoughtseize. Look at Show and Tell. They have their own Force of Will and piles of cantrips so they can go off despite lots of disruption. Or Elves. They have almost as many ways to cast their Craterhoof Behemoth as they have lands. I'd add blue because you're in legacy and blue is blue. You don't need Force of Will, but you need some Brainstorm, Ponder, and Preordain. Also helps to have Daze. Just an idea though as I am not a legacy player.

Alternatively you could try manaless dredge. You don't need Lion's Eye Diamond to play it either so I think you can build a budget list for around $150 and it's pretty fun from what I've heard.

Thanks for the suggestion! I have yet to actually play the deck (still getting the cards), so I'm not exactly sure what is necessary and what isn't. The second Lightning Storm is there (for now) because this list plays Spoils of the Vault, and exiling my one copy of Lightning Storm would be game over.

Some of your equipment choices are extremely suboptimal. Things like Kitesail and Golem-Skin Gauntlets may be a more fun approach to a win condition, but Cheeri0s is traditionally a Storm deck, with something like Grapeshot as a wincon. To dig, 4x Spoils of the Vault is an auto-include in most decks, and allows you to search while still killing on turn 2. Not to be a complete martinet about this, but I think the deck would excel with more artifacts.

The way the deck traditionally works is:

Turn 1: Spoils, or pass.

Turn 2: Puresteel, Draw until Mox Opal, tap, Retract, Draw even more, Retract, repeat. Then, Mox, float mana, Mox, Grapeshot for the kill.

Again, not to be completely control freak, but Cheeri0s is a turn 2 kill deck.
