Creature — Goblin Wizard

Instant and sorcery spells you cast cost less to cast.

neo!Massacre Girl: Any good non-symmetrical burn creatures that can take advantage of this in mono-black? (Stuff like Plague Spitter will wear down your own stuff)

Kylox, Visionary Inventor: Very expensive at 7 MV, but seems fun. Works well with token-making spell cards. (Any good Ball Lightning-type token creators?)

Case of the Ransacked Lab: Finally a mono-blue noncreature Goblin Electromancer at this mana value! It turning into a quasi-Archmage Emeritus later on is just the cherry on the top. I like Cases in general too, being obviously very similar to Classes.

Dog Walker: disguise flavor feels kinda weird here

Delney, Streetwise Lookout: AFAIK e.g. Welcoming Vampire doesn't work with stuff like this. At least Esper Sentinel is still good. Also, neat Spark Double imitation with commanders like Lotho, Corrupt Shirriff

Some thoughts:

  • 80 cards is a LOT more than the recommended 60, and will lead to a lot of inconsistency. I’d recommend trying to get back to 60 cards - there’s obvious loose baggage here to ditch.

  • 24 lands in 80 cards is the same as 18 in 60. 18 lands is a very low amount, even for burn decks (which typically run 20).

  • Baral, Chief of Compliance and Goblin Electromancer do nothing for you here - by the time you can cast them, you can cast pretty-much everything else in your deck anyway. Importantly, they neither help with the countermagic or burn plans (they neither help you control the game nor speed up the clock).

  • Convolute and Disallow are both super weak here, just based off mana cost, and are easy cards to ditch to try get you back to a more-reliable 60.

No, Goblin Electromancer has a static ability, and Harmonic Prodigy only affects triggered abilities (which always start with one of the words "when," "whenever," or "at").

If I have Goblin Electromancer and Harmonic Prodigy on the battlfield, would Goblin Electromancer decrease the cost of say, Convolute by two generic mana?

@FireMind42: Yeah in that case, you'll want to go for Underworld Breach or Paradoxical Outcome (or something weird with both). I'd lean more towards Paradoxical Outcome because it lends itself better to straight U/R Storm. Not to mention, it opens up Displacer Kitten + Coveted Jewel shenanigans. Then you won't have to rely on rituals so much (Desperate Ritual, Goblin Electromancer, and Seething Song are especially awkward). You can then fit more artifact mana and draw spells.

You'll still want Bolas's Citadel because you're never going to actually spend black mana to cast it and the card is just the nuts in Storm. Memory Jar is always fun with Hullbreacher and Narset, Parter of Veils, but Bolas's Citadel is like Yawgmoth's Will and Yawgmoth's Bargain in one card that can be Tinker'd for (especially with Sensei's Divining Top, Brainstorm, and Ponder). You'll still need Sphinx of the Steel Wind in your sideboard, which is another card you're never going to actually cast.

Since you don't want Monastery Mentor, you'll have to get by with Laelia, the Blade Reforged. Sometimes you'll want to Grapeshot. Sometimes you'll want to Brain Freeze. Sometimes you'll want to Empty the Warrens. Other times, you need something that can get big quick and an easy way to do that is Laelia, the Blade Reforged, Treasure Cruise, and Dig Through Time. She's mostly for Underworld Breach, but I'm not sure you'll need that with Paradoxical Outcome.

I also don't know how I forgot to mention Mind's Desire in my original post. That's the reason to play pure U/R Storm in Vintage LOL. Personal Tutor may also have a potential spot somewhere in this list. It grabs Tinker, Grapeshot, Time Walk, Mind's Desire, and draw 7s. I'd even consider it over the second copies of Past in Flames and Grapeshot.

It feels like you’ve deviated a bit off the mill path here.

I’m unsure why you’re running Monastery Swiftspear because you’re never winning by damage. Surely this should just be more crabs instead?

I’m unsure why you’re running Goblin Electromancer when the vast majority of your spells don’t have any non-coloured pips - there are very few spells you’re running that the goblin can actually help you with here.

Expressive Iteration also feels like a really strange choice here. Your mana curve is quite high, so being able to play the exiled-card is less guaranteed (your copy-spells don’t even want to be played this way). You could just be running something like Visions of Beyond and get to keep all 3 cards for half the mana-cost.

To start with, there's a few cards that have better Vintage equivalents. Overmaster and Spell Pierce should be the 3rd. and 4th. copies of Force of Will. Leftover space from cutting those can be Red Elemental Blast, Pyroblast, or Flusterstorm. You don't need Faithless Looting because we have Paradoxical Outcome, Sensei's Divining Top, Gush, Dig Through Time, Treasure Cruise, and Brainstorm to choose from. Merchant Scroll also belongs in here, because you can use it to grab Ancestral Recall at the very least. Usually you want it to make sure you have protection in hand by grabbing countermagic.

Library of Alexandria isn't good in this deck. And you're not the type that needs 8x sources, so Steam Vents can go, along with a few copies of Volcanic Island (1 or 2). Replace all of these with four copies of Scalding Tarn and basic lands. Or even just play 6x fetches. You need to be able to shuffle after using Brainstorm, Ponder,and Sensei's Divining Top.

From here, you have a solid U/R Storm shell. However, I wouldn't play straight "Modern U/R Storm, but Power 9" dot dec. 2 mana is a lot for Goblin Electromancer, there are easier ways of winning than Grapeshot, and so on. The question then becomes "Where to go from here?"

Hope this helps! Welcome to MtG's oldest and greatest format.
