Grubbernaut Well, maybe I'm worrying too much about the fizzle possibility, but due to the fact that this deck aims to be almost 100% optimized towards the combo, any chances to make it fizzle require much attention.
As it is right now, the deck doesn't have much use for the added mana. If you used this cantrip, you'd require one extra source of mana and you'd cantrip as usual and get 1 more mana as a bonus. This'd mean that, with the 2 mana in the pool and the 1 mana the Blistercoil Weird taps for, you'd be able to cast a 3-mana cantrip, or two 2-mana cantrips as the chain progresses. I could see a build where this is benefitial, maybe you go for a storm backup with Grapeshot , or want to get more power with Fists of Flame , or maybe you really wish to make sure you don't fizzle with Ideas Unbound , but otherwise idk what the idea would be

Without it, there'd be no incentive at all to run this deck, it is awfully suboptimal at best otherwise. The idea is abusing the untap effect of the Blistercoil Weird to ensure an infinite supply of mana for cantrips, that allows this deck to have wins as early as Turn 2. Manamorphose could be a good deal if I chose to get more greedy with the spells I want to be able to cast, but it really hinders the ability of this deck to win in one turn, so I'll add it on the maybeboard in case somebody wishes to go for a higher risk/higher reward build that can slot in some more expensive cantrips.

im running Galazeth Prismari . i run a lot of cast untap creatures Blistercoil Weird , Blisterspit Gremlin , Thermo-Alchemist etc. and i put in Urza's Saga thinking it would be good to fetch Paradise Mantle . so far i have found a lot of weird unexpected uses for it. example one game turn 3 i tapped it floating a colorless, sacked it for a Seat of the Synod and casted Snap . with the same method of floating a mana it can also fetch and activate Sensei's Divining Top at your upkeep. its not broken but i've never been disappointed by its resolve i mean even in worse case it can always fetch a sol ring or indestructible artifact land

The revamp is better but not by any notable margin - both decks have too much inconsistency to pick up on the differences from game-to-game.
I think you need to work towards getting playsets of your cards. The following list below just uses more copies of what you’re already running, and will play significantly stronger than what you’ve got now:

Please suggest creatures, of any color, that could be cast for 1 mana, or less, and have or easily gain a power stat of 4 or more.
Here's what I got so far:
- Vexing Devil
- Death's Shadow
- delve creatures Gurmag Angler and the likes
- landfallers Steppe Lynx and the likes
- prowess creatures Monastery Swiftspear , Blistercoil Weird et al
- Archfiend's Vessel
- Serra Ascendant
- Slumbering Dragon
- Hollow One
- Convoke/improvise creatures
- Chandra's Incinerator
- (pseudo) evolvers Experiment One , Champion of the Parish
- Jace's Phantasm
- Pact of the Titan
Levellers are off the table, they just need too much mana to pump.
Which ones am I missing? Not looking for creatures that get pumped by a specific other spell, but rather pump as I play, or get heavy cost reduction. I really need stuff that reaches power 4 quickly and/or easily and not jump through too many hoops.
Thanks in advance!

RebelGenius, Innitially it was 2 Blisterspit Gremlin and 4 Blistercoil Weird , but the Blisterspit Gremlin works better with the Paradise Mantle and Underworld Breach , since it triggers on all noncreatures. This makes it easier to cast the Underworld Breach on a subpar combo, and the Paradise Mantle produces mana, as does Tormod's Crypt from the sideboard.

Cool build! I always love decks that are a little janky. :)
I do have a suggestion, maybe swap out 1-2 of the Blisterspit Gremlin and add in 1-2 of the Blistercoil Weird , just because it has a more versatile casting cost and it gets the +1/+1 counters while the Blisterspit Gremlin doesn't.
