I threw this together awhile back and forgot about it... I'm not sure if it's any good, and it's probably not that fun to play against. Basic idea is that Dragonstorm is the secret general, and the goal is to hit storm count 4 to get Lathliss, Scourge of Valkas, Utvara Hellkite, and Dragonlord Kolaghan to immediately kill the table (described more in this thread from Viperion). If that doesn't work, beat them to death with Nicol Bolas.

The list has Secrets of the Dead and Burning Vengeance for grinding out extra advantage, but they might be too cute.

Another complaint: this build is expensive, and would really benefit from even more expensive cards like Mana Crypt, Grim Monolith, Vampiric Tutor, and Ancient Tomb.

I've gone back and forth on some of the aftermath cards... Commit // Memory, Refuse // Cooperate, Cut // Ribbons are probably ok, but I think I'd rather have some cards from the past year. Mission Briefing, Expansion // Explosion, Narset's Reversal and Echo of Eons are all shoo-ins, and Finale of Promise and Finale of Revelation could find a home here too (probably by cutting Secrets, Burning Vengeance, and some of the gy-exile cards).
