I tried it out over the weekend. Work well with getting stormed count to 22 at turn 7 or 8 with 2 storm spells in hand to win Grapeshot and Tendrils of Agony

Perhaps replace Night's Whisper with Costly Plunder?

Have you considered true storm cards such as Empty the Warrens and Tendrils of Agony?

NV_1980 It's a storm deck with that as a win con but after some deck working I'm going to change Aetherflux out for Tendrils of Agony. It is a much better win con.

Second you don't know me so why would you think you know what is fun for me to play and as for being fun for other people, If you read my profile or looked at my other decks you would see I do if other people have "fun" vs me it's not about fun it's about winning never forget that.....

Hey, saw you were looking for help on reddit and thought I could make some suggestions. First off, I think cards like survival of the fittest and Rest in Piece would be good, though it is a non-bo with e-wit and Regrowth(a strictly better Recollect) type effects. If you are facing a lot of graveyard based decks in your meta it could be a good call though, (since you mentioned gitrog specifically and they cannot win through it). I would recommend replacing Krosan Grip with Nature's Claim as it just is way easier to cast overall. It will allow you to develop your board as well as hold removal. I would play Grim Monolith over basalt monolith if you can and I would also recommend Sunpetal Grove Brushland and Wooded Bastion for lands. I don't think Mana Tithe is worth a slot either personally, because despite the fact the many cedh decks can be really fast, having them pay just 1 extra can be kind of inconsistent. I think Fall of the Thran is just a worse Armageddon if that is what you are looking for, but I'm not sure that is worth it either, I might just recommend Winter Orb due to the similar effect but it can come down significantly earlier. Authority of the Consuls seems weak in most cases unless you are in a splintertwin/kikijiki heavy meta. For cards I would recommend for good includes in general would be Eladamri's Call, Sensei's Divining Top, Selesnya Signet, Shalai, Voice of Plenty(good against people trying to kill you with a targeted spell Tendrils of Agony, Walking Ballista, Stroke of Genius ect...), Gaddock Teeg(very good against Ad Nauseam one of the most played cedh cards), Saffi Eriksdotter for protection on sisay and added combos, Mother of Runes for protection as well and there are probably some other things, but i think that's a good start. Overall though, the deck looks solid, and I think these cards could help.

Oh wow i just deck tested! it's incredible!!! correct me if i'm wrong but this is how i played the hands.

turn 1 Vampiric Tutor'd for Ad Nauseam. Turn 2 Dark Ritual, Sol Ring, Sol Ring, Ad Nauseam, took health down to 5 (didn't want to go any lower but lucky that Tendrils of Agony was next. Turn 3 Dark Ritual city, sac'd all Blood Pet's, Everflowing Chalice & Everflowing Chalice for 0 cost to add to storm, Cabal Ritual & Cabal Ritual with Threshold, and finished off with Tendrils of Agony, WIN!

How'd I do SynergyBuild?

YOu want to ad Nauseam until you are at ~5-6, not beneath 5, unless you drew a Tendrils, in which case 1 is high enough. Then you go make as much mana and storm count, then Vampiric Tutor into Sign in Blood/Night's Whisper to win by fetching Tendrils of Agony!

I realized Tendrils of Agony works better in the deck as a wincon!

duffman24 on Grody Black Things

A couple things that might help this deck:

Ramp: Burnished Hart, Bubbling Muck, Charcoal Diamond, Cabal Stronghold, and Myriad Landscape.

Draw (aka find combos): Barren Moor, Polluted Mire, Skullclamp, Night's Whisper, Sign in Blood, Read the Bones, Twilight Prophet, and Necropotence.

Budget Tutors: Mausoleum Secrets.

Not-as Budget Tutors: Beseech the Queen, Diabolic Intent, and Diabolic Revelation (for late game shenanigans).

Controlly things: Plaguecrafter, Fleshbag Marauder, Ravenous Chupacabra, Imp's Mischief, and Innocent Blood (personal favorite).

Win cons (not that you need more): Torment of Hailfire.

Also fun fact, if you're interested in storm and would rather play black, you can actually make a pretty mean storm deck with just black and Sidisi would be great at the helm. You could even just build a second Sidisi deck and keep this one the way it is. Cards like Ad Nauseam and Tendrils of Agony would be how to win.
