Cascade (When you cast this spell, exile cards from the top of your library until you exile a nonland card that costs less. You may cast it without paying its mana cost. Put the exiled cards on the bottom in a random order.)
Creatures you control get +1/+0 until end of turn.

Violent Outburst Discussion

Storm is the only UR deck on Blood Moon, and the card is still played in numerous other places.

I don't. The only time I'll play a card is when WotC goofed and made a , , or card have the wrong border. There's one green card in all of my current decks that doesn't follow that rule and I only play it out of absolute necessity.
Ancient Stirrings should've have had Devoid or been and I will fight whoever disagrees.
Gnaw to the Bone is a necessary evil. As soon as there's a better Burn/Valakut/Storm/etc hoser, I'll take it.

A consideration is tutors:
There's straight up tutors like Green Sun's Zenith (green creature only, but repeatable and can look for Dryad Arbor turn one), Traverse the Ulvenwald, Burning Wish/Death Wish/Living Wish (from your sideboard) and I'm sure some non-banned black tutors.
There's the mana sink Duskwatch Recruiter that digs through your library.
Satyr Wayfinder picks out particular lands and fills the graveyard.

your right, counter spell is probably better than mana drain although it costs 2 blue. If you reach the point that you have to hard cast Maelstrom then you have probably lost. Maelstrom is in the deck so that you can swing on turn 2 rather than turn three with all of your big creatures if the cascade just disappeared I would still have it in the deck because of it giving my creatures haste. as for Gemstone Mine, i have my lands configured in the way that is most likely to win me the game on turn 2. I need 10 lands that come in taped on turn 1 but can tap for 2 mana on turn 2 and I need 10 lands to tap for a mana of any color on turn 2 if I want to cast Demonic Dread or Violent Outburst. it's really a matter of preference to which lands do these things because there are many lands that tap for a mana of any color it doesn't really matter what lands you use. in order to make the turn 2 win as cosistant as possible this land base is the best for the deck. (although you could use more budget lands like Crumbling Vestige if you wanted to save money but make the deck slightly worse.) thank you for your input once again n0bunga

Also, I'd argue Violent Outburst as the most powerful option. The instant speed it very relevant as it allows Balance to ignore timing restrictions AND allows tricks such as cracking a fetch, holding priority, casting Outburst into Balance and ending up one land over your opponent.

If reviving creatures is what you're looking for, the best decks that currently employ the strategy are Dredge and Living End. Dredge uses the namesake mechanic on cards like Stinkweed Imp to build up a huge graveyard, then beats down with cards like Bloodghast, Narcomoeba, and Prized Amalgam. Living End uses creatures with cycling (like Desert Cerodon and Horror of the Broken Lands) to churn through its deck, then uses cascade spells like Demonic Dread and Violent Outburst to cast Living End for free and revive them all in one go. Would either of these interest you?
