Said on Red Green Storm...


Mishra's Bauble would fit here very well. It's a free non-creature spell that replaces itself, and provides a little bit of information along the way.
Also, I think you are light on threats. If an opponent has two removal spells, you can already be in big trouble. Sometimes you might be able to fight through that with Blossoming Defense and Vines of Vastwood, but having 2-3 extra creatures wouldn't hurt either. Maybe Abbot of Keral Keep or even Stormchaser Mage if you would be okay with a splash.

I don't think you want Evolving Wilds in this deck. It doesn't tap for mana the turn you play it, and you will often be forced to use it before your landfall creatures come into play. Why not replace them with Naya Panorama? That can tap for mana right away and you can use its ability to trigger landfall once you are ready for it.

Said on Bant Combos...


There is also the combo of Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder in Bant colors. :)
Cool deck though, but does the mana work? You are technically in all 5 colors, and don't even play 4 Birds of Paradise.

Said on Sultai Spellweaver...


I wouldn't feel comfortable with Spellweaver Helix and only 9 total sorceries in the deck. Sure, you have Gifts, Jace und Augur to dig for them, but a higher sorcery count would still increase your consistency. Wouldn't it be great to go turn 1 Inquisition of Kozilek or Serum Visions, turn 2 Collective Brutality discarding Ultimatum, turn 3 Helix, threatening the Ultimatum on turn 4? Both Serum Visions and Collective Brutality would fit your deck very well, and I would try to find room for them.

Said on Unexpected Breach...


If you're running Through the Breach, you have the wrong Ulamog in your deck. While this new one is sweeter to cast, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre is way better if you just put it into play for a single attack.

Said on Black-Red Burn...


24 lands seems too high indeed. But you also have 8 spells with cmc 3. I think reducing both numbers would be a good idea - maybe 19-21 lands and 4-6 spells that cost 3?
Searing Blaze and Skullcrack are important disruptive tools for Burn and seen in almost every list for good reason. You should consider finding room for them.

Hey, cool list! However, your deck is extremely linear, all it does is its own thing with zero ways to defend or disrupt. I don't know how much experience you have with Modern, but against decks like Storm, Affinity or Eldrazi that might not work out - if both decks just do their own thing, theirs is faster and more powerful.
You have a playset Eldritch Evolution in your deck. This means that adding a single copy of a creature to your deck basically plays like having five of them in the deck. Which you can then copy a bunch of times with all of your Clone effects. So, if you have a single Reclamation Sage to find in your maindeck against a deck like Affinity, it massively improves your chances.
What I am trying to say is, in order to make the best use of Eldritch Evolution, you should include a couple of silverbullet creatures to find when you are in trouble (some maindeck, some sideboard). I suggest Reclamation Sage, Glen Elendra Archmage, Scavenging Ooze, Phyrexian Revoker, Sower of Temptation and Profaner of the Dead. Another fantastic option is Thought-Knot Seer, but you would need at least four Yavimaya Coast in the deck so you could cast it when it's in your hand.
I think I would also try and find room for Oath of Nissa and/or Serum Visions in your deck, they help you control your draws to some degree and assemble your combo faster.

In my experience Worship is a great sideboard card against decks like Burn, Merfolk, Dredge, Living End, Death and Taxes, some versions of Elves and other Aggro or Combo decks. I like it against Affinity too, even if they still have Inkmoth Nexus to get around it. You can adapt your deck a little to accomodate Worship, such as Courser of Kruphix to keep fetchlands online once you're at 1 life (your list even has two Coursers already), but it's not really necessary. Worship is good enough on its own in a deck with this many creatures against most linear, damage based decks. They can rarely beat it, and neither can they prevent you from eventually winning via combo.

Sylvan Caryatid becomes a little more interesting if you run Worship since it rarely dies in the matchups where you want Worship and it accelerates you nicely into the 4 mana enchantment. But that's about the only real reason pro Caryatid, it's just not what this deck needs, since you want to ramp into 3-drops.
