As long as Storage Matrix is untapped, each player chooses artifact, creature, or land during his or her untap step. That player can untap only permanents of the chosen type this step.

What're your thoughts on cards like Killer Bees and Unyaro Bees as a late game mana sink (especially if you can achieve infinite mana)? Nothing seems more hilarious than killing someone with those. I'm just trying to think of win cons that don't involve Craterhoof Behemoth.
Also Squall Line and Hurricane seem to have some potential or at least make everyone more "manageable." Throne of the God-Pharaoh can nuke down your opponents too and can be more brutal with a soft mana lock with Ritual of Subdual/Winter Orb/Hall of Gemstone/Storage Matrix.
Vanquisher's Banner seems like it would be good here for draw and pump. Only downside is it costs 5 CMC but that is pretty easy to pull off with Seton. Quest for Renewal is Seedborn Muse's lil cousin and undoubtedly would be activated the turn it drops but might only be worth it for the Helix Pinnacle win.
Just trying to get the creative juices flowing here lol.

alright, so I did some more digging - I've been kicking around a similar deck idea for a while. here's some of the stuff you might be interested in:
Pain for everyone:
Citadel of Pain, Copper Tablet, Power Surge (read the errata for this one, it makes more sense, Shadows of the Past, Pyrohemia, Pestilence, Dark Suspicions (or Bulwark, depending. kinda mutually exclusive), Rivalry, Skullcage, Wheel of Torture, Iron Maiden and Circle of Affliction
No creatures for You!
Death Pits of Rath (which couples well with Pyrohemia and Pestilence from earlier), along with Circle of Flame, Heat Stroke, Magmatic Core, Mudslide, Wave of Terror, War's Toll, Storage Matrix, and Noetic Scales.
Punishment and protection
probably some stuff in here you considered already, just figured I'd sift through this stuff and see if anything was to your liking

When you are running only 5 creatures with activated abilities that require tapping and only about 3 others that you would want to attack with, Anger seems underwhelming. Goblin Sharpshooter might be playable (though I think it falls below that threshold), but the other combo pieces are just bad.
At the risk of suggesting too many nonbasic lands, Phyrexia's Core has a fair amount of utility.
Scarecrone is a card that might be worth playing.
How has Mox Opal performed for you? I've been testing it for a while, and it hasn't been quite as good as I'd hoped.
From my experience with Daretti, I would recommend keeping an eye on The Chain Veil. I kept encountering boardstates where I just wanted to discard it and never bother bringing it back.

If you've got the playtester open while editing, you'll need to close it and open it again before it updates iirc. I'd consider Storage Matrix in place of emrakul- it feels a lot better here as you only care about untapping lands, and most mixed creature/spell strategies really suffer to it. Conserving your fogs cause they untap lands not creatures will buy you some turns. Rule of Law is super useful if your meta has a meaningful combo component.
Interesting land choices abound- I'm a fan of Mystifying Maze, but its a serious mana hog. Blinkmoth Well can be fun when an opponent is reliant on Grinding Station for their win. Calciform Pools could ease casting those big end-spells, Desert/Grasping Dunes/Sunscorched Desert/ that new one that provides amazing graveyard hate look like they're going to be an interesting package, Flagstones of Trokair is a better plains against all but blood moon (which you fight through well anyway), Forbidding Watchtower as a backup win when there aren't creatures or removal, Nephalia Academy may have utility protecting fogs from thoughtsieze. As a whole set though- tectonic and ghost will see you through most of the meta, with gher/mikokoro to keep things running smoothly- its best not to worry too hard unless you see something that will plug a gap.

Haha. Believe me, every time I play the deck at my LGS, the resident EDH brewmaster who built a fully optimized Yidris Storm deck can't wrap his mind around the synergies and plays this deck requires.
Through multiple games, I can say that phasing can be abused in your favor, once you are set on mana rocks. It is not viable otherwise since it set you back a turn to do next to nothing with colorless mana. Its the reason why the deck is so artifact heavy. Until Mycosynth Lattice is in play the chances of casting colored spells are next to none. I have been debating with myself now that the card has been unbanned in commander to add in Metalworker as more ramp but I feel its gonna die more often than not before I can get any value with him because his reputation in MUD decks.
As as as other cards go, Words of Wind is definitely up there in terms of cards I would want in the deck for value although I am struggling to find a spot in this current build. The same can be said as far as counterspells go.
I would like to test these out. But to fully see the results though, I'll have to cut to down some of the STAX artifacts to make room for them. Perhaps Meekstone and Storage Matrix would be on the chopping block as far as cuts are concerned in that regard. Other than those I dunno what to cut.
