Hey pitan77,

As I mentioned to the previous user, horizon and pain lands are an excellent alternative to dual lands. I have the feeling that you run a little too few islands for high tide to be still worth it, but you can always test it.

In regards to timetwister, that's a hard card to lose for the storm variant as it is actively used in several backup wincons. I wouldn't try to replicate the effect, most cards in that regard are not as good. I would simply swap timetwister for the next best card, even if it's not comparable at all. You'll then just have to accept the fact that you lose access to certain lines, although they could be done hard-mode with noxious revival and regrowth effects.

Hey Armadillo656,

Everything can be made on a budget, it all depends on what powerlevel you eventually want the deck to be. Both four colour decks and storm as an archetype are quite hard on a budget as you really need the correct colours and correct combination of fast mana and draw spells.

If you're interested in budget alternatives then I would recommend looking through the 'Notable exclusions' section and through comparable decklists. It depends on your exact budget and what you want to change which resource fits better. For example: Painlands and horizon lands are often fine alternatives for dual lands, but in that case cards like high tide, arbor elf and utopia sprawl might need to be cut. If you don't have the budget for most of the fast mana then you're likely better off playing a different deck or accepting that the deck cannot be played in competitive pods. It's hard to provide budget alternatives that don't directly impact the rest of the deck, which is the main reason I don't include it as a section in my primer.

You are more than welcome to join the Yidris discord ( for discussing specific cuts and additions.

Hey Cipheus,

Mox tantalite is in the notable exclusions section. It simply isn't worth the slot because it doesn't do anything without Yidris and even with Yidris the payoff isn't that high. The turn you're hitting with Yidris should be the turn you're trying to win, getting a permanent mox doesn't help with that.
