To put it differently...
Its common knowledge that storm is a graveyard deck - and as such people bring graveyard hate against it.
As a result Pyromancer Ascension doesn't solve the issue storm hase - vulnerability to grave hate.
Meanwhile Aria of Flame does all the thing storm needs.
It dodges creature removal.
It dodges graveyard hate.

I can’t add too much to what nathanielhebert suggested, they got to pretty much everything.
The rituals will really help with the storm count as well as some cantrips. Manamorphose is a must have in storm, free storm count and replaces itself.
Things that cheapen your instants/sorceries would help a lot too like Goblin Electromancer or Baral, Chief of Compliance . If you don’t want creatures you can run Primal Amulet Flip or Jace's Sanctum .

Oh sorry skipped that one as I was referring back and forth between my response and your question.
Aria of Flame , Sphinx-Bone Wand , and Mizzix of the Izmagnus all add two counters. Runaway Steam-Kin has an intervening if clause and will only trigger if the clause is true and only have the effect if the clause is still true upon resolution. So, you are correct that if you do nothing the second trigger will not add counters, but if you make the second trigger to resolve will add counters.

Thanks Gidgetimer, very helpful.
What do you think about point 7 though? I'm guessing the Runaway Steam-Kin will max out at 3 counters (but you can -3 counters +3 mana after the first one resolves, before the second), the Aria of Flame and Sphinx-Bone Wand get two counters per cast and Mizzix of the Izmagnus gets one counter?

I'm probably not the only one confused with which triggers Veyran, Voice of Duality works with.
603.1. Triggered abilities have a trigger condition and an effect. They are written as “[When/Whenever/At] [trigger condition or event], [effect]. [Instructions (if any).]”
So cards like Guttersnipe or cards with magecraft clearly work (she triggers her own magecraft), cool, no problem.
There seems to be a consensus that cards with prowess and similar ( Stormchaser Mage , Aetherflux Reservoir , Wavebreak Hippocamp ) also work so long as it triggers with an instant or sorcery and not another card type. Ok, so maybe the permanent's trigger condition does not need to say 'instant' or 'sorcery'.
What about if something like Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind was triggered with a Brainstorm ? Does the permanent's trigger condition need to say 'cast' too? What 'causes' the triggered ability to trigger? Is it the casting or the drawing? Same question with Baral, Chief of Compliance .
How does Spellweaver Volute work? DO you get two copies of the same instant?

Usually, Bonus Round is involved in some capacity, but generally casting and copying spells with Aria of Flame , Guttersnipe , or Sentinel Tower on the field will do it. Or a particularly large number of copies of Brass's Bounty into a sufficiently large Comet Storm . With enough of a back-and-forth of Bonus Round and Reiterate , you can even end up with enough copy triggers that casting Lightning Bolt will be enough to take your opponents from 40 to 0.

Would Alhammarret's Archive ever be worth running? I know it's clunky at 5 CmC but it would let you reliably storm off.
Aria of Flame is another storm win condition you could run if you wanted to find more storm pay offs.

Say I have Isochron Scepter imprinted with a Lightning Bolt, does using that count as a an instant spell that would trigger Aria of Flame? I'm assuming yes, and that its "copy" and "cast" wording gets it to trigger, but I want to make sure. Thanks in advance!
