Hey! Love the deck idea.

Some cards I'd recommend:

Elixir of Immortality for saving your graveyard.

Mystic Retrieval to pull from your graveyard.

Anger is a great card to have in your graveyard.

Desperate Ravings could be fun.

Pirate's Pillage for card draw, but Careful Study or Tormenting Voice would be better!

You may also consider Frantic Search, Faithless Looting, Looter il-Kor, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, or Dack Fayden!

my storm deck has 4 Gifts Ungiven and 4 Baral, Chief of Compliance. They both make a very large difference and I recommend them. I would play 4 Opt rather than 1 and cut Peer Through Depths, Desperate Ravings, Divination, and Chart a Course. Also 4 Goblin Electromancer instead of 3. Good luck getting it faster!

I don't think you have enough enablers.

I think Desperate Ravings is a decent option. It's not great from hand, but its flashback later in the game is pretty damn close to looting level.

But you'll probably need a better mana base to support it, so maybe not.

Maybe Burning Inquiry is good?

PTsmitty on Replacing Looting in Mardu Pyro

So, now that looting is unfortunately banned in modern I am trying to think of a replacement. The first card that came to my mind was Cathartic Reunion , but I dislike the requirement of discarding two cards. My second thought was Tormenting Voice as the requirement is only one card to discard. I saw someone post Desperate Ravings as a possible option for other decks since it does have flashback. Insolent Neonate and Stitcher's Supplier are other options I had seen, but I feel like they are more appropriate for dredge and other graveyard specific decks. Does anyone else have some ideas for me?

ZendikariWol, I think Sevinne, the Chronoclasm is actually really fun.

To start, it combos with one of my favorite cards from last year's set, Reality Scramble , IDK how good that is, but it'd be a blast.

For real value, I think the deck looks to be a graveyard value control deck. Maybe a bit of prison, considering how you can become 'immortal' by enchanting Sevinne, the Chronoclasm with a Pariah , or equipping it with a Pariah's Shield .

Swiftfoot Boots , Champion's Helm , etc. to protect it, then abuse it's ability to combo with Flashback, like Deep Analysis , jumpstart like Chemister's Insight , retrace like Oona's Grace , and aftermath like Refuse / Cooperate

Total, there are a lot of good spells to abuse with it:

Flashback -

Cackling Counterpart

Deep Analysis

Desperate Ravings

Echo of Eons

Faithless Looting


Increasing Devotion

Increasing Vengeance

Mystic Retrieval

Past in Flames


Scour All Possibilities

Think Twice

Jump-Start -


Radical Idea

Beacon Bolt

Chemister's Insight

Risk Factor

Retrace -

Oona's Grace

Reality Scramble

Call the Skybreaker

Aftermath -

Leave / Chance

Failure / Comply

Farm / Market

Reduce / Rubble

Refuse / Cooperate


Mission Briefing

Snapcaster Mage

Quiet Speculation

Runic Repetition

Catalyst Stone

That's all I can think of right now, if I remember any more sweet cards with Sevinne, I'll tell you!

Personally I love Burning Inquiry , pus it may disrupt your opponets hand (or help them ...) so I am all for it. Or perhaps a combination of that Desperate Ravings
