Low creature count allows you to punish value recursion and go wide decks. Play AEther Flash, Tainted AEther, Pyrohemia, etc.

Neheb, the Eternal and Cabal Coffers are notably missing for mana ramp.

If MLD is acceptable in your playgroup you could run a few and play them when you stick a strong enchantment like Revel in Riches or Black Market to pull ahead. In that case play ones that destroy everything but enchantments like Obliterate and Decree of Annihilation.

No grave hate which is a bit dangerous. Run at least a Nihil Spellbomb, Rakdos Charm, and Bojuka Bog.

Fervor and Goblin Assault aren't doing much for you in a control shell. I could see the need for a token producer if you were playing Smokestack and friends but on your current build it only creates a suicide grunt.

If you want to pursue the discard route I suggest Oppression, Painful Quandary, and Words of Waste, Waste Not, and Myojin of Night's Reach. If you're going for reanimator I'd suggest Anvil of Bogardan as well to get the plays going faster.

I LOVE the enrage mechanic and I have been idly sitting on a goldmine of cards that abuse it.

Also props to the original Enrager Vigor and he should be in your deck :)

Pyrohemia is a token killer, life eater, enrage enabler all in one glorious package. Sure a board wipe will make you lose it but in the meantime you can keep weenie x/1 and x/2 tokens at bay as most of your creatures have 3+ toughness,

AEther Flash is a pet card of mine and acts like a second Pyrohemia. The only problem with it is it doesn't work well with Polyraptor as it creates an infinite non-optional loop that if you or another player are unable to stop leads to a draw according to MTG rule 421.4. Thankfully Gishath doesn't force you to put all Dinos revealed into play so only a Lurking Predators like effect would cause something like this.

Lightmine Field is another enchantment that works like pillowfort card preventing players from swinging out with creatures and is yet another enrage triggering ability.Iroas, God of Victory combos quite well with this making your creatures immune the damage as well as granting menace.

In my version of this deck I've taken out Heat of Battle and AEther Flash simply because my meta isn't heavy on token decks and I moved those cards to the sideboard, but I see how they can be incredibly useful if you play against tokens more often. My meta has more Stax and Combo oriented commanders, so if I reveal my take on this deck eventually I will have different card preferences simply due to meta calls. I intend to gear the deck around more value pieces rather than going a Stax route because mono-red is a color I find hard to pull off the consistency I want in a deck, and since I don't have to worry as quite as much about tokens, I mainly need to focus on breaking parity with Stax and killing the Combo players.

However, there is someone who occasionally uses a Talrand deck that could be problematic, and AEther Flash solves that token issue.

What're your thoughts on AEther Flash? I know it's a bit of a bizarre cards, but it outright kills Najeela, Tymna, Tana, and most mana dorks on the spot. And while it shuts down your mana dorks and Notion Thief, it does the same to opponents' thieves.

Unfortunately it doesn't hose flash hulk but it hoses quite a few powerful decks.

I know it might be completely off the mark, but I thought it was at least worth asking.

You know you can bring the game to a draw with Polyraptor and AEther Flash? and if you want to actually win with it lol, play effects like Impact Tremors or Warstorm Surge

I apologize for the long post below: It is not modified for standard play. Please disregard if you are playing standard only.

The best deck to counter aura hexproof (what your friend has) is generally black/green sacrifice decks. See: Grave Pact, Butcher of Malakir, , Chainer's Edict <- (Pricy), Spore Frog, or Fleshbag Marauder. Or -1/-1 effects aka Archfiend of Ifnir, combined with enablers like Lotleth Troll or Putrid Imp.

That, or a deck that has a lot of sweeper spells - Cyclonic Rift (pricy), Terminus, Living Death. Think of sweeper spells as cards that immediately level the playing field. If you're losing, just play a sweep. Instant board reset and everybody is on even playing grounds. Cheaper Alternatives: Hallowed Burial, Devastation Tide, Coastal Breach, Evacuation; just make sure it only targets creatures (not like Wash Out) because you don't want the auras returning to hand. You want to get rid of the creatures and have the auras fall off.

I don't quite agree with Atrox's approach because I know most hexproof decks run Umbra auras (Hyena Umbra), and will easily have more than 3 toughness.

Personally, TO COMPLETELY REDESIGN YOUR DECK, I would use no creatures and only spells or maybe with creatures with nice ETB (enter the battlefield) effects (Archaeomancer. This way, the sweepers don't affect you very much and will only remove your opponents' creatures. Red will be reserved for dealing damage, and blue will be reserved solely for sweeper spells & drawing cards.

Current problems with your deck:

1) It's slow. You're going to have to have multiple pingers which all take about 3 turns+ summoning sickness to start becoming active. Izzet decks are supposed to be fast & maintain control from the beginning of the game.

2) The synergy is a little too far apart - you want to have creatures pinging damage, you want to counter spells, you want creatures to get buff; there's only so much you can do with 7 cards in your hand.

3) No card draw - you'll run out of steam very very fast. Blue excels in card draw - you should make use of it!

Here are some hate cards I highly don't recommend you using because you'd force him/her to change their deck: Gomazoa, AEther Flash, Glaring Spotlight.

Modifications if you like the creature-based "ping" strategy: Consider these cards: Razorfin Hunter, Quicksilver Dagger, Sigil of Sleep, Horseshoe Crab, Pemmin's Aura, Freed from the Real.

Try to find out what your style is, then start asking for tips to point you in the right direction.

Let me know if you have questions :) (I play an aura deck)
