So I think I’ve arrived at the most consistent UR Modern Storm build I can. It goes off on T4 with alarming consistency for anywhere between 20 to 80 damage, drawing the entire deck.
The linchpin in this build is certainly Part in Flames, and it really can’t operate without it, so tuning for the metagame probably requires some number of counterspells. I’m thinking Pact of Negation, which is just silly with Past in Flames. After all, you never intend on paying the upkeep.
Dark Ascension has a number of cards that are perfect for the deck. The two weakest spots are Goblin Lore and Desperate Ritual. Faithless Looting and Thought Scour are two optional replacements from Dark Ascension, but we’ll have to see how they test.
Here’s the current list.
