Fulminator at the very least trades with most aggro creatures in a worst-case scenario. I think that we're not really so much arguing over Fulminator vs FoR, but FoR vs Mutavault. I'd probably not mind replacing Vault with another Mutavault to have 3 total in my list.
I'm not really arguing FoR vs Mutavault nor if we should run land destruction MD, but if that land destruction should be on a land spot or on a 3cmc spot. The curve of the deck is really high, and having 10-11 3cmc cards and 4-5 4cmc cards results in a lot of hands where you can do nothing until turn 3-4.
Damping Sphere might be really good against Storm and Tron, though I find Stony Silence + GY removal (Spellbomb + RIP) more reliable, since Storm doesn't usually play enchantment removal and you can shut up Oblivion Stone and maps against Tron. That said, I wouldn't mind to try it as a 1-off on my SB since it is pretty versatile.
The last list I've been working on:
I'm trying both Mutavault and FoR on the same mana base, as well as Gideon AoZ as a finisher. I've also been testing 2 Fulminators MD, though, just to see if they perform better than I think, but I don't have conclusive results yet. I'd like to add the 3rd TSeize, I'll test if 3 Sorins and 2 Gideons are really necessary and if not I'll swap one of them.
