I'd use Faithless Looting, especially if you're using lava-dart. and for burn spells Lava Dart, Thunderclap, or Fireblast are probably better burn spells than your one mana spells. Being able to cast the burn on the turn you have All Will Be One + any combo piece is what you need most. I would main-deck include Pact of Negation even without blue mana and have a sideboard including 4x Pyroblast/4x Red Elemental Blast

other possible rituals include Simian Spirit Guide and Lotus Petal

If we're looking for something to swap out for Storm-Kiln Artist, then I'd say take out Simian Spirit Guide. You lose an easy red mana in exchange for relatively easy mana of any colour you need.

If Dockside Extortionist is your go-to, I'd run some bounce or flicker spells. One that comes to mind as one that'll do immense value in that regard is Displacer Kitten, you get Underworld Breach running, and then basically everything you do nets you more treasures to work with. But this is assuming a decently artifact/enchantment heavy board on the enemy side, which I guess is a pretty safe bet in a highly competitive environment.

And as a little side rant: sometimes they ban cards like Simian Spirit Guide for absolutely no reason (has never EVER been in a deck that was considered problematic) out of nowhere, yet at other times they insist on keeping stupidly OP 1 card combos in the format and pretend it's fair. /rant

I finally had a chance to play this deck a couple times tonight, and I am happy to report, it went off on T1 and T3 and T2 for 3 wins in a row. I was Astonished. I mean, I wasn't playing against a blue Legacy deck of course, so, no Force of Wills or "whatever" to trip me up, but it was really cool to see the deck combos play out like they are supposed to! Landing those "Cheerios" one after another, and Lotus Petals and Simian Spirit Guide/Elvish Spirit Guides at just the right times to keep the deck flowing and then boom! Grapeshot!! Next turn, Goblin Bombardment!! OMG, It was glorious!! Ahh..... Wellp, Anywho....that's my story. Hope yawl are having a kickass Friday like I did! Peace! Love! Cheerios!!!

certainly an interesting thought with a 2CMC Yasharn, Implacable Earth... Im not sure how I feel about it though... I am a huge fan of the card Blood Moon itself But back in the day with "Free win"" Mono-Red Prison or ponza lists that cheated out Blood Moon early with Simian Spirit Guide... idk i think that feels toxic.

I am also butthurt over Modern horizons/universes beyond introducing cards that never touch standard... Modern is becoming the new legacy we have without the prestige of owning original magic we will simply have to accomidate spin-off products now apparently.

Modern was never a perfect format and was pleaged with problematic cards for YEARS like Simian Spirit Guide/Mox Opal/Faithless Looting.... people say competitive magic was 2 ships passing in the night well... yeah there was a lot of unfair uniteractive nonsense (that were well known kinda like how The One Ring is a known issue but the banlist says otherwise)... those cards got banned with modern horizons though... then people say "thank god we have interaction like Force of Negation now"... yeah it feels really good when used in the context of Violent Outburst and Crashing Footfalls... or getting hit with Grief with hiw that's being used... gross.

As much as I share your frustration though and absolutely hate Modern being a soft rotating format... it really isn't all bad news... I also brew my own decks and have taken them to the LGS and yes I lose... but I still felt like I had a chance (if that makes any sense).

I'd be a liar if I said I was forever done with Modern. Despite the frustration it really is the best 60 card format imo... just as before modern horizons it is not without its flaws but I do think that it could be time to shift focuse into Pioneer for me anyway.

Well cheers until Modern Horizons 3/Dr. WHO/Songebob/Diablo 5 sets release!
