pleasuresaurus on Izzet Really Control Without White?

1 day ago

Its great to find another Izzet build here to learn from, I knew there was potential it. I'm prototyping a Burn/Control build right now and faced the similar issue of card draw later on in the game All ur beast r belong to us. Looking at your build, Font of Fortunes is an interesting idea - it acts as card draw AND bait for counters/denials - I might have to make some room for it. However, would you consider something like Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius as a card draw solution later in the game? I had to put him aside due to the way legendary rule messes with my meta.

I noticed you mentioned trouble dealing with R/G Monsters. While my build is not as thoroughly tested as yours yet, it was able to stand up against few midrange-ish decks it fought due to the creature duplication/stealing effect. One game had an opponent ultimating Kiora, the Crashing Wave and I was duplicating Kraken after Kraken. Act of Treason or Harness by Force in the sideboard?

Auras can enchant any creature (unless it specifically says otherwise). You enchant their dude, and make him swing and hit you. The Aura is under your control, but Celestial Mantle makes the creature's controller rather than the aura's controller gain life. Also, Daring Thief doesn't move said object (Bazaar Trader can't even donate enchantments), it just reassigns control. Similar to Act of Treason ing a dude with an Aura. The Aura remains under their control, but doesnt fall off because at no point did the targeted creature leave the battlefield. Auras are weird because they can be under your control, even when they aren't on your creatures or your board. That's why Flowstone Embrace is great removal in TSP block draft.

sounds like a good plan. as far as the Act of Treason goes what would i put it in for? ill see if my buddy has a few Dreadbore s and any extra Minotaur Skullcleaver s. thanks for the suggestions!

I would suggest adding Minotaur Skullcleaver so you can hit your opponents for 4 turn 3 due to its haste ability

I would also maybe add in Dreadbore because it is a good for clearing the board.

Also, I would suggest putting Act of Treason in your side board because you would want to side those in if you are playing against a deck that has a lot of large creatures

You could Act of Treason an opponent's Deceiver Exarch , then play your own Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker to win.

This deck is beautiful, I love it. I don't know if you ever will, or would want to make another rendition, but I run a vampire based sacrificial deck featuring Falkenrath Aristocrat . Featuring cards like Captivating Vampire , Olivia Voldaren , Act of Treason , Harness by Force , and Threaten . The look on peoples faces when you take their creature, smack them with it, then sacrifice it to empower your own creatures is priceless. :p
