I thought I just had to run Abrade, I didn't love it but I'm unused to having a SB!
Dumping the Rituals seems fair, they don't work as well without the card draw that I removed from an early iteration.
Grapeshot hasn't been working very well but I'm accustomed to viewing Storm as a mechanic as broken, so I let my preconceived notions overtake my better judgement. Out with it!
Haze has been mediocre, probably fine to cut. That one I'll have to take a slightly longer look at, but should be fine to drop.
The Nexuses have been able to 1-shot K.O with doublestrike spells and pump effects, but since I'm cutting most of those they can be cut. Good call.
I definitely like Fury, but I might need to reconsider my super-secret tech on Twinflame . It's fun to copy a Swiftspear, but probably not good enough. I'll play around with it.
Thanks again for taking the time to help me out a bit!

JW398 yeah interesting for sure... it would obviously be a sb card, but I think you would have to have multiple copies to make it effective. If you were to only run 1 copy and still be able to combo off that mush through whatever sb hate your opponent would have, then I think you should just be able to cast Grapeshot .
I used to sideboard 1 Empty the Warrens but I never actually used it. What do you think?

Looking at your current list, I think you should drop:
Abrade (its a sideboard card, not mainboard, and 2cmc is high for prowess).
Grapeshot (you're not storm, this does nothing for you here).
Haze of Rage (2cmc is high, the effect is average).
Also, i'm not sure why you're running Inkmoth Nexus . This deck is not going to be able to win by infect damage, and its not something that you should be aiming for. With all of your spells requiring red mana, this land could hurt you more than help you (you'd be better off running Mountains instead of these).
I didn't mention Fury of the Horde and Twinflame , as you said you'd really want to include them, and I do think Fury of the Horde at least has a decent chance of being useful as a 1-of in the deck. I do think you're going to have a really hard time making full use of Twinflame , but it shouldn't hurt your deck too much as a 1-of.

It seems like your deck would really benefit from running actual Storm cards. Grapeshot in particular seems pretty great. I think basically every storm card in your colours is probably worth playing: Brain Freeze , Empty the Warrens , Ground Rift , Mind's Desire , Volcanic Awakening , Temporal Fissure ... Most of these are decent in commander if you can play a few spells before them (which would decks seems built to do).

Gitaxian Probe and Lava Dart will be really good here, Mental Misstep is probably solid too but you lose the targets of Sol Ring, Mystical and Vampiric Tutor, Top, Seal, Entomb and Tide, but there's tons of great 1 drops anyways that I'd still run it. 2 life to counter a mana dork, Brainstorm, Gamble, Wordly or Enlightened Tutor? Seems great.
Also, Storm. Grapeshot after a couple cheap or free spells can not only deal a solid chunk of damage, but it also can give you a lot of Magecraft triggers(and you can kill a commander with it).
You could definitely cut a couple of the higher CMC cards as they'll clog up your gameplan a bit -- run a few more cantrips and interaction such as Preordain , Serum Visions , Faithless Looting , Lightning Bolt , Spell Pierce and Miscast .
Also, a couple rituals -- Rite of Flame is the best one here, but Simian Spirit Guide also works. Pyretic Ritual and Desperate Ritual are also okay, but they don't help you cast Veyran so they're last in line for those slots.

... I'm not going to tell you it doesn't but, I would call this counter burn not storm. Again you have not real storm pay out like Grapeshot .
