Recommendations for cEDH storm?

Salutations. I have a 5 color storm list for cEDH that basically plans to play Ad Nauseam, have 25 cards in hand, then have the rest proceed from there. I've played it and it works fine, but I still feel like it could be more consistent. If you have any recommendations, I'd love to hear them!

This looks great!

Only thing I would maybe consider is a backup wincon, maybe Tendrills of Agony if you want to stay strictly in storm, but since you’re running Angel’s Grace with Ad Nauseam you can easily go with Lab Man wincons.

Hey matkomtg, that's a good idea. One rule I have with the deck is every time I cut something, I replace it with something that has less or equal CMC. So, I'll definitely be adding either Lab Maniac or Brain Freeze to the deck, as soon as I figure out what gets cut for them.

I would add at least a couple more counterspells. You are leaning really heavy into the goldfish naus plan, so it needs to resolve. Swan Song and Negate are all stars in the format. Flusterstorm is great. Even Autumn's Veil and Red Elemental Blast work too.

I think zealous persecution, the net +1 mana red rituals, etherium sculptor, and summer bloom are a bit too cute for my tastes. They are all pretty low impact or a bit narrow/niche. ZP is a meta call but I still think there are better options such as Pyroclasm, which can also hit a Tymna the Weaver. Bring to Light is an interesting choice. How has it been performing for you? 5 mana sorcery seems too slow for me in this kind of deck. Even if it hits naus, it’s a bit vulnerable and requires you to be at a high enough life total or land count to get a good enough use out of it. Best of luck!!
