Storm is an art form. Storm needs to be practised. Storm is a skill that takes time to develop. You could write an entire novel on the perfect way to play storm and still not cover all of the nuances. At its core, storm is just playing and chaining a large number of spells to get your ‘Storm count’ up and then having an outlet for that number. In modern, that outlet is Empty the Warrens, in legacy and until a few years ago in EDH, it was Tendrils of Agony. Now we have Aetherflux Reservoir. For further reading on Aetherflux vs. Tendrils, Reversemermaid's essay has great reasoning on why to run it in Grixis Storm. Also Suasion did some incredible maths in his Shimmer Zur Primer that really shows of just how efficient Aetherflux is.
