interesting deck. You've probably already considered
Ignite Memories Buy. i definitely suggest
Browbeat Buy for draw or burn. mostly burn

From lowryn; I can only think ponder would be good for drawing and or add to storm. Spellbook Buy is definitely a card to think about instaed of claws. Chromatic Star Buy is good for a deadly turn also.

please rate

Volcanic Awakening Buy?

If that's what you mean, I wouldn't run it because it isn't Sligh, but good suggestion.

I run this decktype but I still use Rav. cards. With this post-Rav. build how has the consistently of the deck been? I never thought about using Spellbook Buy but I might try to try that in my build on Rav. rolls out.

I was going to suggest Ponder myself but I see that you already thought of it. Well tell me how it goes; I would really like to see this decktype do really well in the new post-Rav. standard environment.

Thanks for the rate. If you can rate my Turbofog deck please. I'll rate another one of your decks in return.

I haven't completely put this deck together yet until I either work up some money or until my computer decides to run Apprentice. As soon as I can finish this deck, I'm gonna try it out at FNM.

How about Furnace of Rath Buy doubling your damgae could really help.

Pyromancer's Swath Buy with Grapeshot Buy actually triples your damage rather than doubling as Furnace of Rath Buy does.

i would put in Rift Bolt Buy it adds to your storm count and is a burn spell. Otherwise really nice build. How successful is it?

please rate my white heat deck

Two words. Mishra's Bauble. Oh wait, two more. Grinning Ignus. These are very serious storm builders. The ignus makes one red into one storm count as you can cyclicly activate his ability and when you run out of mana to tap, you can use that last red floater to return him and bomb a grapeshot for craziness. The bauble is just free storm and you should definately run it. You're running an all in one shot kind of deck so you need to figure out how to prevent discard from kicking you in the teeth. That's all I have for now, good luck.

I most definitely thought about Mishra's Bauble Buy and I also realized I forgot to look at the rest of Coldsnap (I got a bit excited...) Personally, I absolutely hate Grinning Ignus Buy. Something about the little tike... I can't figure it out.

I hate this deck...so much. It's a good deck, it just pisses me off.

Telling Time Buy over speculation. The costs are close enough, except one will give you cards, which you desperately need in this deck.

Spellbook isn't going to help, I see you like the card, but seriously, it won't matter in a combo deck which destroys your hand anyways.

What about Aeon Chronicler Buy? It can severely turn the tide. It gives you two cards a turn, and once it hits play it will go towards your storm count plus you'll be swinging for a good amount.

You want lorwyn? I can't think of much of anything, Hostility Buy would throw you off, the counters wouldn't work.... no, I can't think of anything.

Let's continue the trend. Please rate.... I don't know. rate one of my more recent decks. Danke. Please tell me which deck you rated, because I may not notice.

Had no idea Telling Time Buy was in 10th edition. Screw Mystic Speculation Buy.

I disgree with the Aeon Chronicler Buy. That casting costs is over 3cc, which I don't want, and it just makes me want to run Jhoira of the Ghitu Buy.

And actually, Hostility Buy would be pretty good if it wasn't a 6cc. Imagine a nice storm count and a Grapeshot Buy pouring out lots and lots of Elementals. I almost want to make a deck out of it.

Just to give another perspective again. In my opinion, the areas for improvement I see is that you are leaving yourself open the first 4 turns. I play blue but I've been posting green decks recently because it's so fun to see 6/6s together with 2 (or more) other creatures on turn 3. turn four we either grow bigger or try to end the game with overrun. Some might say you can't amass that many creatures in that short of a time, but I really beg to differ. So usually, if they don't do anything about my creatures they have to pull off what they are trying to pull off by turn 5 or its game over.

If you want you guys can also check out my "Magus and the Elves" deck. I have been having fun with it all day long, no combos, no fancy tricks, Just pure beatdown. If I don't see blockers, the waves just keeps going faster and faster. The "in" thing in this block is tribal, if you see one, and you don't kill it, he'll be back with friends.
