Sorcery

Each instant and sorcery card in your graveyard gains flashback until end of turn. The Flashback cost is equal to its mana cost.

Flashback (You may cast this card from your graveyard for its flashback cost. Then exile it.)

Awesome deck! I really like spellslinger decks, and playing this seems really fun.

However, considering how many instants and sorceries you have and the wheel theme, i'm surprised you don't have any graveyard recursion or synergy.

some cards that you could consider are: Bond of Insight, Call to Mind, Flood of Recollection, Mystic Retrieval, Pull from the Deep, Relearn, Shreds of Sanity, Backdraft Hellkite, Past in Flames, Volcanic Vision and The Mirari Conjecture

some of those exile themselves and since you have so much draw power that might actually be a downside. If i were to cut something for those I would maybe one of those shuffle effects.

here's some cards that cast instants or sorceries from your or other people's graveyards: Finale of Promise, Diluvian Primordial, Mnemonic Deluge, Mizzix's Mastery and Spelltwine.

mnemonic deluge and diluvian primordial are pretty funny, though kinda expensive. Imagine casting a wheel and then "going shopping" for spells, i highly recommend it. though these exile, so if you loop your deck you can't cast the spell you coped again.

if you want to bounce creatures with niv-mizzet, you could consider Arm with AEther or Sigil of Sleep.

some more spellcasting synergy: Firebrand Archer, Saheeli, Sublime Artificer.

i don't know how often you would be able to kill or do something significant with Spiraling Embers, but i thought it would be a fun inclusion.

here's a few cards for copying instants and sorceries:

Bonus Round, Insidious Will, Reverberate, Thousand-Year Storm, Swarm Intelligence and Twincast. twincast, reverberate and insidious will double as interaction, and you could also consider Narset's Reversal

and a few more card draw inclusions: Laquatus's Creativity and Sea Gate Restoration  Flip.

sorry for the wall of text, just got excited about brewing so i wanted to suggest a bunch of cards. I hope that this at least gave you some ideas.

Past in Flames is a nice suggestion, too.

any RU deck that actually aims to cast multiple spells in a turn. if you're not already doing that, it won't matter who your commander is. you'd most likely want Past in Flames in the deck.

Awesome deck!

May I suggest some cards?

Mana Geyser that would go nuts with Past in Flames if you have enough copies in your graveyard!

Double Vision will give you twice the Dragon's Approach casts for your first ones!

Your deck is a bit short on protection for your commander and removal, Deflecting Swat , Vandalblast , Chaos Warp , etc!

How's the draw in your deck? Magus of the Wheel , Endless Atlas (great in mono color decks) Outpost Siege and Chandra, Torch of Defiance would help out!

Looks like a super fun deck!

Theres alot of cards that do this. To better help you can you tell us your angle here? What deck you might be trying to build? What commander are you using? And maybe some more helpful insight. Speaking of insight, Recurring Insight , does rebound count? Risk Factor does jump start count? Past in Flames does flashback count? I have so many questions because I want you to get the right help

How about Past in Flames ? For some juicy recasting. Mizzix's Mastery would also be great, and even better when you draw it. If you're willing to get a pricey card, Scroll Rack will let you stack your deck with the best instant/sorcery in your hand.

Frd123, these are solid recommendations. I will have to try out Karn, TBH I hadn't considered how his downtick got stuff back from exile. I have spun into Sentinel Tower or Aetherflux Reservoir with only 1 or 2 mana left and lost them permanently. Additionally, my list had evolved in a grindy midrange storm build. I've added some light stax pieces back in and Karn punishes those greedy mana bases which can be back breaking especially paired with the plethora of Pyroclasm -like cards in the list which keep the board clear of dorks. (I have been working on revising my primer but I was waiting until Strixhaven finished before completing)

I think the recursion could be handy, but I have enough redundant effects to where I have never wanted for recursion. Past in Flames and Underworld Breach are more than enough for me personally.

For the cost reducers, Mystic Forge has floating around on the periphery of my mind but I could never just find the slot. Ever since Birgi, God of Storytelling  Flip released, I have felt comfortable with the current list of cost-reducers. Now with Birgi, I have even toyed with running the Grinning Ignus combo into a big X spell, Flux, or a lethal Grapeshot.

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.

I would replace the frogs with more Moment's Peace or Commencement of Festivities .

I would cut the Nature's Spiral completely. And Past in Flames would be better than Call to Mind .

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 .

Aria of Flame is probably better than Red Sun's Zenith . Maybe better than Ignite Memories depending on what kinda decks your facing.
