Sunburst (This enters the battlefield with a charge counter on it for each colour of mana spent to cast it.)

storm build prosper is very fun indeed :)

i have found Dragon's Rage Channeler Burning Prophet and Quicksmith Genius to be quite helpfull in my storm build. The quicksmith is probably even nicer in yours as you can take advantage of the discard.

some alternative finishers to concider Aria of Flame Sentinel Tower.

I'm gonna steal your idea of Pentad Prism, didn't have that one in my list yet!

Ya unfortunately this latest didn’t seem to add much in the way of cheating out artifacts other than Mishra, Tamer of Mak Fawa, but the artifact creatures it added seem pretty solid.

If you want some early game reliability and speed you could try out Mind Stone and/or Talisman of Conviction in place of Pentad Prism since they don't run out of uses. And I know you're running a couple of Ornithopters as a cheap way to combo off with Trash for Treasure but I think you might actually be better off using Ornithopter of Paradise in its place. I also like what you’re doing with Unmarked Grave and if you want to go with a more equipment artifact route then you could always add in a couple Stoneforge Mystic, but then you’d probably just be running into the same problem you’ve stated with your deck just feeling like a slightly weaker version of a different archetype.

Hopefully this helps!

I'm used to my modern games getting grindy with a lot of hand disruption and lifelink, especially in budget matches - a lot of 'Mindstab, removal and stall'. Sea gate is neat there because it + 2 mana spell is usually enough to close out a game, and veil's splice cost sets it up to be repeated as a draw engine in that environment.

If speed is the problem and your meta demands it, Goblin Electromancer type creatures can do a lot even if they aren't shrinking splice costs massively.

The big mana might also be managable by leaning on either 'burst' mana like Pentad Prism or sticking a Khalni Gem / ticking up a Pyramid of the Pantheon but yeah, it would change the style of the list. I normally run through about 8-10 drafts of a budget list before I find something I like enough to play with.

yes you got the jist if it, however right now I am trying it without the Training Grounds. instead I am using the companion ability of Zirda, the Dawnwaker, a grantee that I have it when I need it opened more spots, the other creatures in the deck can combo as well, Vitaspore Thallid is another potental win con and Utopia Mycon can be infinite mana like Pentad Prism for walking ballista (mot necessary since I can use the combo on it as well I know) or to fuel Logic Knot also worth noting that Tolaria West cat grab the ballista or the paradise mantle.

As for making it a control deck, I honestly just suck at building control decks, I can play them but I suck and the construction side, I am totally open to recommendations though.

Component Pouch, Worn Powerstone, Palladium Myr, Somberwald Sage, Overgrowth, Coalition Relic, Pentad Prism, Generator Servant, Eye of Ramos, Heart of Ramos, and Horn of Ramos would all ensure that Intent comes out on turn 4 assuming you've drawn your 4th land by then. Your land count is too low to reliably achieve this though. Would need to be at least 39 lands.

Personally I would cut thought vessel, farseek, rampant growth, wood elves, yavimaya dryad, and utopia sprawl in favor of some of the aforementioned cards.

Also these might interest you: Lightning Greaves, Bloodsworn Steward, Blood Mist, Berserkers' Onslaught, Brass Knuckles, Fireshrieker, Embercleave, Lizard Blades

Pentad Prism would return with no counters. Your "does not retain original casting data" is a good way to put it. It's basically treated as an entirely new object. Since no mana was used to cast it when it enters, it doesn't get the Sunburst effect.

Long story short, I have a Pentad Prism on the battlefield which I payed two colors of mana to cast. Later in the game, with all the counters spent, I do combat damage with Brago, King Eternal, and flicker the Pentad Prism. Does it return to the battlefield with 2 counters because it retains the “metadata” from when it was first cast, or does it enter the battlefield this way with zero counters because it entered in such a way not cast with mana? (Thus, does it not retain original casting data between battlefield and exile)?
