Rain of Filth
Until end of turn, lands you control gain "Sacrifice this land: Add (Black) to your mana pool."
Rain of Filth Discussion

You don't have nearly enough low-cmc spells for a storm deck, and your curve is way off. Storm relies on playing as many spells as possible in a turn and then having a payoff card. In your case that's either Tendrils of Corruption and Aetherflux Reservoir .
Consider finding a way to increase your mana by adding in Cabal Coffers or, if on a budget, Magus of the Coffers + Umbral Mantle . I know Kerrick basically lets you use life instead, but you need a fallback because he's usually target #1 when on the battlefield. Also, the less life you pay, the more spells you can cast with said life. Include mana increasing spells too, like Bubbling Muck and Rain of Filth , for when you storm off, Kerrick or no.
I suggest getting your cmc around 2.00 by increasing your instant and sorcery count. I see you trying to go the devotion rout too, so try cutting out a chunk of those artifacts and putting in some good, low-cmc creatures and enchantments that will both help you with your strategy and be useful when storming off.
Here is a decent one I found here on T/O (not mine):

If you are trying to go for the largest torment of hail fire or largest exsanguinate possible maybe Rain of Filth could be something for your deck since it will allow you to tap your lands for a mana and then sac them for more mana.
Bubbling Muck is another good card for 1 mana that will double your mana for a turn for when you try to finish the game.

A lot of good suggestions! Thank you!
Coldsteel Heart is a good one, definitely gonna add it, but Skull of Ramos has the same problem as Worn Powerstone : coming out turn 3 and generating 2 mana doesn't make it faster than generating 1 mana, since sidisi --> ad naus --> combo all take 1 turn each regardless :D
Rain of Filth actually does make the combo faster, since I can combo the turn I play ad naus then (main phase of course). Great suggestion ^^
I do actually own Chrome Mox , but considering I run 80 lands or so I wasn't sure if it was worth including or not... I guess I'll see what my final land count is before deciding
The problem with Cabal Stronghold is that I need 5 other basics to generate positive mana, and at that point I should already be comboing off or dying to counterspells
Terrain Generator is great, 0 damage from ad naus is amazing ^^
Imp's Mischief is also noted
There's a lot of great suggestions, now I just need to figure out my pain limit for ad naus... ^^

Very risky, but Rain of Filth in case you absolutely need extra mana.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.
Cards to consider cutting to make 100:
- Demon of Catastrophes : not worth sacing a creature to cast it.
- Nightmare : not worth 5 mana, 5 of the mana cost can't be paid with Phyrexian mana.
- Xathrid Gorgon : same as Nightmare.
- Magus of the Coffers : Crypt Ghast , Coffers, Nykthos, Stronghold all better.
- Liliana, the Necromancer
- Ancient Craving
- Dregs of Sorrow
- Avatar of Woe
- Demonlord Belzenlok
- Eternity Vessel
In your forum topic you said you're not worried about reducing the high avg. CMC by cutting high CMC creatures because you can pay Phyrexian mana to reduce their cost. This is true to some degree, but you're not always in every game going to have Krrik on the battlefield, access to Phyrexian mana, and the times when this happens then having a lower avg. CMC will allow you to actually play Magic.
The other problem is why play worse high CMC creatures then Vilis, Broker of Blood , Pontiff of Blight , Sheoldred, Whispering One or Reiver Demon ? There's no reason to jam a bunch of other high CMC creatures just because you can. These creatures especially the interaction of Vilis, Pontiff with Krrik are better than all the other high CMC creatures who are within the budget here. You would rather draw them then the others therefore make it easier to draw them and don't include lots of other high CMC creatures?
Pontiff of Blight giving extort to all creatures you control is good especially if you're playing a life gain strategy. Extort can be paid for with Phyrexian mana, that's what makes it busted. Each extort trigger can be paid with 2 life, but if you have three opponents you gain 3 life for each trigger, you gain 1 life per opponents who loss life. This means you extort for free and also gain 1 life after each trigger. Even if you only have two opponents you're still getting to extort for free because of Phyrexian mana.
Before you can do anything with Krrik and Phyrexian mana you have to get him on the battlefield and this means getting four mana (colorless or black). First priority for upgrades to consider is adding more early game ramp that's within the budget:
- Dark Ritual
- Cabal Ritual
- Bubbling Muck
- Blood Pet
- Everflowing Chalice
- Mind Stone
- Fellwar Stone
- Basalt Monolith
- Crystal Vein
The strength of Krrik is Phyrexian mana, but to take advantage of this you want lots of other one mana cards. When you play Krrik you want to right away start giving him counters:
- Blood Celebrant : with Phyrexian mana this is repeatable 3 life to add , which is busted.
- Scheming Symmetry
- Rain of Filth
- Inquisition of Kozilek
- Aphotic Wisps : can kill an opponent with Commander damage.
- Tainted Strike : can kill an opponent with Infect.
Cremate, Wisps, Tainted are not usually playable cards, but with Krrik they are because they're free to cast and most draw a card. For one mana or free Symmetry can get you Necropotence into your hand.
Two drops are also good, not as good as one drops, but still good value with Phyrexian mana:
- Imp's Mischief : protect Krrik.
- Night's Whisper
- Blood Artist : cares about your opponents' creatures dying too.
- Animate Dead
You could fit Demonic Tutor and Diabolic Intent in here if you wanted by cutting some cards that are by no means as powerful as either because these tutors can get you Necropotence , Bolas's Citadel or Aetherflux Reservoir ; all more impactful cards/game winning cards. Consider cutting these cards to add Demonic/Intent? Most of these cards are high mana cost redundancy which are not needed:
I offer more advice if you would like. Good luck with your deck.

Hi nice idea for a deck, I love the flavor of the deck,somethings you might want to consider to improve the deck is casting your commander as fast as you can so I would use artifacts that give a lot of mana and ritual spells to get the engine started and then maximize the number of spells with only on the cost to get real advantage on casting the commander early on Mana Vault , Culling the Weak , Bubbling Muck , Rain of Filth , and others like this.

I found a few others (I built my own list to fish with).
Have you tested stacking the untap triggers with wheel effects and/or Necropotence . Necro seems like one of the strongest cards in the deck, as you can win during the cleanup step with B open into Dark Ritual .
I put Cabal Ritual , Rain of Filth , and Mox Amber in my list. It's a judgement call how deep into "more rituals" you wanna dive but in trying to filter-storm off I found myself often wishing for mana more than any other resource.
Bone Miser feels like HUGE value. He turns filtering into unstoppable advantage. I also threw in Reanimate for him but that might be incorrect. Maybe Skirge Familiar would also be a good include for similar reasons.
Phantasmagorian is a cute way to untap Anje for free (which might make or break comboing off)
Also don't forget the newly printed Archfiend of Spite!
I cut the Dualcaster/Twinflame combo. I'm not sure how often you're leaning on that but those cards are dead outside the main combo.
