Volcanic Offering Discussion

Hmm... Well I might just have to get my hands on it then... Have you considered Volcanic Offering? I believe you could get it out on T2/3 if you start with the right combo. Sol Ring + any 2-drop mana rock should do the trick

Here's the issue. Storm is not a color that goes "smoothly". It's izzet. It's not suppose to. Sometimes I do an epic experiment and I blank. Sometimes I just win. It happens.
Izzet can't really go off on turn 3 or 4. It's a different style. But it utilizes cards like AEtherspouts AEtherize Cyclonic Rift Evacuation Blasphemous Act and Chain Reaction as board whipes. Then good spot removal like Rapid Hybridization and Pongify. I mainly use Young Pyromancer and Talrand, Sky Summoner as defense as well till I hit a board wipe.
Commander is about multiplayer. And storm is amazing when it comes to it. It strikes quick but not really early.
For early card draw I would include all the cheap blue spells like Brainstorm and even Faithless Looting to get you going. Discard your expensive stuff that isn't of use to you yet and get it back with Mizzix's Mastery or Past in Flames
For massive card draw Stroke of Genius is great and can mill in the late game. Mystic Confluence is very versatile, Thought Reflection gets scary real quick. But my favorite is by far Unexpectedly Absent (in multiplayer settings. I tutor for it many many times. And Time Spiral if you have one.
High Tide and Turnabout can net you an absurd amount of mana if you copy either and add the leftover mana to your mana pool in response. Inner Fire is absurd with massive card draw plus any copy effect like Increasing Vengeance. And of course Mana Geyser. Utilize artifacts like Worn Powerstone and Izzet Signet and Mind Stone for early ramp
Gut Shot is too weak for me, but Mind's Desire to me is like another epic experiment. You can always hit your X spells and cast them for 0 to increase your storm count. Plus it synergizes with Guttersnipe and Sphinx-Bone Wand.

With the number of cantrips you have, you probably dont need as many straight draw cards, cut one of the following Stroke of Genius Jace's Ingenuity, Brainstorm , Epiphany at the Drownyard. never been a fan of Wayfarer's Bauble. Volcanic Offering seems too expensive. Izzet Charm doesn't make a big enough impact to seem worth the card slot to me. Though it gives you great ramp Sword of the Animist might be better as a Sword of Fire and Ice, Sword of Feast and Famine or Sword of Light and Shadow if you have the money, those are amazing for voltron. I would also try to find a spot for Darksteel Plate as equipment has the bonus over auras of being re-equipable rather than going to graveyard, if they manage to kill you commander.Also, since she will get pretty huge on her own, you may want to consider Whispersilk Cloak as it makes a threat very hard to deal with even if shroud means you cant put auras on it. And Cyclonic Rift is an auto-include in any deck that has blue. the only reason to not play it is that other players may get salty because it is just that unfair in your favor.

As for the rest: Tremble, Thoughts of Ruin, and Burning Sands are a no because they backlash on me too much and because they sacrifice it. Which means they choose the land. Not good if I'm aiming to knock out their dual lands first. Looking for more destroy, as I can target what I want AND destroy doesn't go through my indestructible cards while sacrifice does.
Detritivore is an interesting hitter who would go well as a situational based on the land composition of my opponent. So that will stay a maybe.

Detritivore is also a worthwhile creature if you suspend it, cant be hosed by control magic.
Keldon Firebombers would be funny. As long as you can still tap the 3 lands, Numot can still tap them to smash 2 of your opponents 3 lands.
Burning Sands is the final suggestion I have. Its pretty nasty.
It looks brutal though!!

Thanks for the compliment Suaz14! Here are some more. Please excuse my need to recommend creature spells... It's my favorite card type. I'll be sure to include some non-creatures as well!
- From the Ashes
- Obsidian Fireheart
- Orcish Settlers
- Embermaw Hellion
- Ember Swallower
- Volcanic Offering
- Bend or Break
- Thoughts of Ruin
- Tectonic Break
- Winter Orb
- Static Orb
- Psychogenic Probe (This card is awesome for fetches!)
- Impending Disaster
- Smoke (Fitting I feel)
- Tectonic Instability
You'll probably want to be drawing cards while your opponents are forced to discard cards because they're missing land drops or just barely making the cut at 7 cards in hand. In any case Sandstone Oracle is a budget friendly draw spell. There are plenty of other better options too, but it was just a thought.
I'm not going to be cruel and "suggest" the cards above, that's a lot of clicking around for you to do. So I'll just leave the list here. Hopefully you see something that sparks some interest!

If you are actively looking for a red card to get with Conflux, how about Mizzix's Mastery? It gives you a cheap second Conflux, or a more expensive, more powerful effect when you overload it. Some more useful red cards would be Volcanic Offering, Blasphemous Act, Vandalblast and Dack Fayden.
Seasons Past is incredible in controlling decks, as it synergyzes so well with cards like Demonic Tutor (the two cards can repeatedly get eachother back since Seasons Past goes into the library when it resolves).
