Your opponents can't cast spells this turn. (Spells cast before this resolves are unaffected.)

Neat idea, but briefcase is a nonbo with creativity here. If you go to mono red you could run the whole thing on a real budget, or look at splashing something to protect your sorcery speed combo - Silence or similar?
I think the most fun thing I'd look at is tokens/flip cards for kiki to copy - I'd be tempted to try and stick a Devastating Summons.

Drestlin - Well I am sorry to hear that. I have played against a handful of fairy decks and do agree they are challenging as many bounce creatures off the board or even take control of my creatures and combine that with the control aspect of to begin with and it can be frustrating. As almost every deck relies heavy on removal or discard I have played against many of those and usually can come out on top as long as something sticks to the board, as you mentioned in one of your past comments. Part of the reason I am experimenting with Shalai, Voice of Plenty is to help against burn/removal/discard/etc. heavy decks.
Without seeing the games or more detailed info, my only thought would be to slow the deck a bit by running some protection such as Heroic Intervention, Rebuff the Wicked, Silence, Mana Tithe, Emerge Unscathed, or Brave the Elements (but most your stuff is actually so likely not that helpful). Your ability to get your creatures pumped with counters would likely be slowed down but the chances that something would stick to the board would improve...That or time to bust out the big guns and run Vizier of Remedies + Devoted Druid!

Cards like Polluted Delta and Windswept Heath, where you can tutor one basic land type, seems to be in the deck chiefly to shuffle your deck. If that's not your intent may I suggest either replacing some of the other nonbasic lands with lands having two or more basic land types such as Savai Triome(if you can financially afford it)? Another option would be to replace those tutor lands with including, but not limited to, Fabled Passage and Naya Panorama. Another land you may want to consider is Bojuka Bog to throw off opponents who'd benefit from all the discard.
Another card you may want to consider is Bonfire of the Damned. If at some point you find yourself adding more instants and sorceries that deal damage, you may want to consider adding any combination of Pestilent Spirit, Radiant Scrollwielder, Soul-Scar Mage(especially useful against creatures with Indestructible) and Toralf, God of Fury Flip.
I hope this helps. Thank you for reading me out. Happy Hunting!

I wish I could +1 again, I don't even have any real suggestions to give you aside from my own personal deckbuilding advice which I don't think is warranted in this type of more competitive build. That being said, I wanted to know your input on these cards have worked for your deck...
Mandate of Peace - Do you just go to combat and not attack, cast it, then proceed to Main Phase 2 and activate your commander? Can't they just cast a spell in response?
- Compared to Silence, do you prefer it given it stops attacks on your opponents combat step? I guess what I'm asking is, how does one use mandate of peace effectively in your deck? Under which circumstances is it ideal, and circumstances that are less ideal?
While not a serious suggestion given this build, one thing to note is if you were to add in Maze of Ith, it gives you infinite mana during the combat step in conjunction with Argothian Elder. You can then use that mana on staff of domination. Limited, yes, but worth noting if your meta is a bit more aggro than I had first thought (given you're running mandate of peace)

First things first: nice basics. And I like the sideboard. Good choice for card draws. I agree with the premise that LED isn't mandatory in a storm deck.
I disagree strongly with one card in the main: Lightning Bolt.
And I want to hear your reasons for the Chromatic Spheres.
I'm a big fan of Wishclaw Talisman (activating it on the turn you1ll win).

Tried this out and it was spicy,, with a couple modifications since I don't have things like mana vault or the ur-dragon.
Played Silence and no one countered it. From there Tooth and Nail into Jodah, Archmage Eternal + Morophon, the Boundless. Played Tiamat, grabbed Old Gnawbone, Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund, Lathliss, Dragon Queen, Dragonlord Dromoka, Hellkite Tyrant. Dropped Lathliss, Dragon Queen first, Dragonlord Dromoka, Karrthus, Tyrant of Jund then the others. Swings in, generates treasure. Then finally cast Teferi's Protection and ends his turn.
I'm probably going to get focused down next game for my little "dragon song" combo....

thank you very much. :)
Silence was already part of the deck at some point but I felt it was somewhat lacking.
Now seeing Orim's Chant I can quess what it was. As my playgroup is combat heavy, the ability to skip one combat seems pretty sweet. I will try this one out.
