I own more than 200 Totally Lost some foil some not, but I don't actually play the card, unfortunately.
Tidewater Minion is my favorite sleeper combo piece in EDH, any blue EDH deck I've owned, I've basically jammed one in there because of how many ways it can enable combos or just good synergies.
Same goes for Dream Cache as it's amazing to just dig, keep information, and set up combos like Miracles or Cascade
And I LOVE how many things Torpor Orb just critically stops
I have a TON of other 'pet cards' but they usually aren't good like Crackleburr most likely just my favorite card in the game for everything about it, just wish it was better.

Some random Izzet cards I've come across from LRW/SHM: Clout of the Dominus, Inside Out, Crackleburr, Nucklavee, Noggle Bandit to crack those clogged multiplayer boards, Mindwrack Liege, Mirror Sheen in the sideboard

Brighthearth Banneret, Crackleburr, Eyes of the Wisent, Grinning Ignus, Flamekin Harbinger, Ingot Chewer, Liege of the Tangle, Incandescent Soulstoke, Living Hive, Mulldrifter, Omnath, Locus of Mana, Smokebraider, Wilderness Elemental , Stigma Lasher, Spawnwrithe, I looked up all the modern Elementals and these are the ones I found relevant.Noticed that some of the Larger Elementals could have a potential Through the Breach effect.

Update: removed one Deflecting Palm and added one Triton Tactics as well as two copies to the sideboard. I always prefer only having to leave 1 mana up, especially in a deck with so much to do. If you find yourself seriously racing, you can still side to have 3 Deflecting Palm . Meanwhile, the one-of toolbox copies of each will leave opponents guessing long after they have seen one, debating every attack - keep them guessing.The triton alongside the Blistercoil Weird and Crackleburr will mean 'tapped out' is rarely actually tapped out. Against non-creature decks or unblockables, e.g. Merfolk, simply remove the triton and board in palms and counters. I removed 1 Twisted Image from the sideboard to make space, but I consider 3 the minimum as my locals have a lot of very problematic Spellskite Wall of Omens and less-troublesome birds/hierarchs floating around with all the Jikki, Infect, combo and control going on. Against many decks it gives a real edge. Cards which are certainly worth considering also include Coordinated Assault for packing the extra punch off prowess or surprising with a vicious untap synergy for Blistercoil Weird and of course Dromoka's Command for all the synergies it brings, screwing up burn, key enchants like unlife for Ad Nauseum, targeted removal, and the usual prowess trigger. So many possibilities, so few slots!
Feel free to comment with any ideas folks.
Noogin thanks very much for the comment, I am glad you enjoy the deck. Going to try it at the local FNM next week and will post results!

Crackleburr I feel it would be silly in a way that only Izzet can be.

Nice deck! I've made a mono red elemtal deck myself and maybe I have some suggestions that might help you.I dont really like Crackleburr. They only way it can kinda work is if you only have / multicoloured elementals. Sure you have Nivmagus Elemental and Shrewd Hatchling, but i still think that there are better cards than Crackleburr. Shrewd Hatchling Is not the best creature either, there are better options if you want something that can deal direct damage. Cards I woul suggest are: Lightning Bolt, and maybe Artful Dodge but thats a very situational card. Elemental Appeal is also nice, but might be hard to pull off in a multiucoloured deck.If you want to go for the aggro route some really strong elementals are: Ball Lightning and Hellspark Elemental. Some very strong elementals that you might want to look into in general are: Incandescent Soulstoke and Nova Chaser.Incandescent Soulstoke works well with Thunderblust since you can immedeatly use its persist effect and give it trample after 1 turn. If you want to go more for the instant/sorceries route then togheter with Shrewd Hatchling and Nivmagus Elemental (and maybe Lightning Bolt andArtful Dodge) you might want to consider Kiln Fiend.
Hope this helps!

wow, great suggestions. I was on the fence about Sigiled Starfish but he's a definitely a maybe. Also that combo with two seastars and Crackleburr is awesome (+8/+0!). I'm worried you would need alot of creatures (6) on the field to pull it off though, two red, crackleburr, two seastars, and a Flamespeaker Adept to mount it on. I think its easier to just play burns and boosted swings every turn, than set that whole thing up.
Conundrum Sphinx looks very fun with scry, might help with some mid to late game card advantage.
Delver of Secrets Flip is a good call in most blue decks. Especially because you can 'help' him transform with scry in this one... but I am resisting because he doesn't necessarily 'fit' in this deck. hmmm
oh and AEther Membrane looks like a great card for slowing down combat but I think we need to be more aggressive. sideboard maybe?
Thanks! you gave me a lot to think about
