Spoils of the Vault Discussion

Open the Vaults is way better than Reiterate purely because it doesn't need Faith's Reward to be good. But if you're still in insistent on reiterate, then let us know how it does. Spoils of the Vault can easily be replaced with Tezzeret the Seeker to find your Altar of the Brood or Krark-Clan Ironworks or as an alternate win con itself.

You probably want Watery Grave and Steam Vents over Godless Shrine and Sacred Foundry since is your primary color. Also, consider some Seachrome Coast. What do you think of Faithless Looting over Spoils of the Vault along with some Simian Spirit Guide to accelerate the combo? It'd make the mana base a tiny bit lighter and make you more all-in since there's now a higher chance of drawing dead stuff. Just throwing out ideas. I absolutely love this deck.

The reason for 3x Grapeshot is due to the Spoils of the Vault - If I mill through the Grapeshot there's almost no chance of winning. - Having 3 makes it very unlikely that I won't have one left after the Vault.

Nice seeing this build just straight storm +1 :)
A few things though:
You prolly only need 1 Grapeshot unless you don't plan on a given Grapeshot being a full 20 damage. When this deck combos off of retract you'll find a second off of all the draw. Even without Hurkyl's you should be able to string the artifact returns and have ballpark 25-35 spell casts. Running at least 1 or 2 Hurkyl's is a good call though.
Another thing, Pact of Negation is kinda pricey but it'd be beautiful in this deck :) Oh you want to counter my Grapeshot? Pact You take an extra damage then. Pact, Apostle's Blessing, and Noxious Revival are all really clean sideboard/mainboard options.
Last thing, you could run Monastery Mentor instead of Spoils of the Vault. Sososososo much value lol but only a tad bit above curve. And while Spoils is awesome there's always that one game where all your Puresteel Paladins are at the bottom half of your library.
I've had a really rusty budget version of this deck for a few years now but I'm sprucing the thing up lately since modern is getting going again where I'm at. It's a really fun build! I think it's more fun to pilot then those top tier storm decks.

Thanks for the suggestion! I already have Sterling Grove as a tutor and Spoils of the Vault if I'm really desperate. This is also a budget deck so spending $270 on one card is a bit much, thanks though.

I'm sorry for the double post: yes, Spoils of the Vault must be played with judgment, considering the (high) risk.

Well, you can dig quite deep in black, too. And you can tutor very easily, of course, but you say it would be too mana-expensive and that is right. I was thinking to Bitter Ordeal as a secondary win-condition, using Spoils of the Vault and Beseech the Queen to get what you want if your actual hand does not allow you to win by T3, but I fear the latter being too slow. I do also really like the suggestion of using at least a couple of Noxious Revivals for backup.
