    This is the more explosive list I tested before.

    It goldfishes very consistently between LED+Echo and Gamble, but it lacks protection and can get blown out if Song is answered.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Does this need to copy TES? TES is a very strong deck but has structural differences. It has to go off quickly. Like most storm decks it needs a critical number of cards,...

    Artificer's Intuition looks good, but sets you behind in cards, so you might want some card draw to balance it out.

    What about the combo between Nivmagus Elemental and Flusterstorm? Is that enough to have a threatening Obosh attack?

    Ground Rift is also an option but jankier, while Flusterstorm actually has text.

    Re: Shadow of the Fluctuator

    Cycling doesn't build Storm count, so is Tendrils even good here? You'll just have the rituals and Shadow/Reaping.

    Once you have that much mana, is Living Death better?
