"Any format where I can play storm on a budget is a good format."

Budget Mono Blue Standard Paradoxical Outcome Improvise Storm. Drop a bunch of cheap artifacts, then use them to play larger spells with Inspiring Statuary, bounce them and replay with Paradoxical Outcome, Baral's Expertise, or Engulf the Shore, then win with Aetherflux Reservoir. Paradoxical Outcome and Reverse Engineer offer extra card draw along with Anticipate.

Thanks for checking this list out!

Let it be noted that I recently broke 500 life in 1 game with this deck!

I think I would splash white, but this is a really nice way to utilize Aetherflux Reservoir that I've never seen before. Now if only you could play Leonin Elder.

Jory476 I've been testing out this list with white on untap, and I agree it definitely improves with access to the second color - I'll probably post the 2 color list soon (just because it's going to be more expensive and I want to keep the ultra budget and budget lists apart.

Thanks for the upvote :)

I have a similar list and I'd say Sram is a must have. The amount of card draw he provides in this deck is amazing.

Even with just 8 equipment?

It's very worth splashing for Sram. He's the only reason this deck works.

I'd add 4x Whir of Invention and 4x Reverse Engineer. Cut the Statuaries and the Anticipates.

I made a deck very similar to this. you should try to use more control as a way to survive until turn 4. once you play the reservoir and you will gain a lot of life every turn so you will have a good chance of wining. for example definitely run 4 metallic rebukes.

Pacification Array and Treasure Keeper? One gives you a cascade trigger, the other helps with cat combo, and they both help you improvise.

I would only want to play Keeper if I could cast it off of improvise since I want my turn 4 to be setting up for a win on turns 5 or 6 rather than playing a chump blocker with upside.How does pacification array stop the combo? Neither piece of Copycat needs to be untapped to function...

Baral, Chief of Compliance + Warping Wail. good 3 ways. 1 mana kill spell. 1 mana counter sorcery and trigger baral. or 1 mana make a scion to replace the casting cost, basically adding 1 to your storm count.

Felidar guardian was just banned so if white was only to add the addition to the cat counter. then I would keep it streamlined. this plays very nicely. I played one match on here where I mulled to 4 and still went off with a storm of 15 and activation of aetherflux (with 2 on the field lol )

on turn 8 sorry didnt finish my thought.

Wow that's sweet! And cat is my worst matchup by far so this is amazing!

I took your backbone and made some amonkhet tweaks. Gonna try to run it at fnm tonight. Pull from tomorrow in the main board is ridiculously good. Almost always causes you to storm out.

ooh that does look good - I will add it in soonlet me know how it ran at fnm

I ended up with some play tests (probably going to add barall expertise back in as a 1 or 2 of) but against mardu vehicles I had around 60% win rate. which isn't bad. :)
