Dangerous Wager Discussion

Hybridtheory13- First, nice name, Chester was the voice of a generation. May he RIP.

Thanks! 2 of these will probably replace one of each Magmatic Insight and Dangerous Wager. Can't lose with it!

Seems pretty creature heavy given what you're shooting for, I think. Take advantage of the blue with some bounce and/or counter (Mana Leak, Syncopate, Vapor Snag, another Cyclonic Rift). I would pick the Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind over dracogenius if you're wanting to do things with card draw and maybe some Faithless Looting, Desperate Ravings, or Dangerous Wager, maybe Browbeat or Reforge the Soul . Kiln Fiend and Nivix Cyclops are killer, especially with a few Artful Dodge, which has that nice flashback. Maybe drop the Wee Dragonauts since you've already got a playset of Stormchaser Mage and the 2 Enigma Drake. Maybe cut down on the number of Bloodwater Entity and replace them with instants or sorceries. It's nice to pull from the graveyard, I like Mystic Retrieval for that since the flashback means I don't feel bad about discarding it.

I realize I just wrote a lot. I'm currently working on converting my vintage Izzet to modern so these are things I've been thinking about recently anyways. Hope at least a little bit of this is helpful.

@BlazingAbsol - Thanks for the suggestion! I definitely wanted to fit Chandra, Torch of Defiance, but can't imagine running more than a singleton with only 20 lands. I dropped Howling Mine, which I've been looking to do for a while, and replaced it with 1x Chandra and 3x Dangerous Wager. Wager will help when I'm top decking without helping my opponent, and Chandra will be an excellent source of regular card advantage.

Dangerous Wager is instant speed and most of the time my hand is empty anyways.

How good is Dangerous Wager? Wouldn't Tormenting Voice be better?

Since you're in red and have a lot of damage, Thornbite Staff might be good to trigger Zirilian an extra time or two. Dangerous Wager is actually great card draw once you empty the rest of your hand(something not hard to do in EDH). Temple of the False God is pretty good too, and Tatsumasa, the Dragon's Fang gives you an equip and a way to spawn a dragon blocker at instant speed. I'm surprised at no Ryusei, the Falling Star- it might kill your general if you sac it but it's a cheap way to wipe an enemy field.

Exuberant Firestoker is a cheap mana rock that shocks people.

If you have dragons in your hand you'll enjoy Cryptic Gateway to cheat them out as well.

Crucible of Fire makes your dragons bigger, and Dragon Roost makes you more dragons. It's expensive but you're cheating your actual dragons in anyway, and you can use the tokens for Cryptic gateway

Dragonstorm might be too expensive considering the other ways you have to cheat out dragons but it's worth considering.

You don't have a lot of Instants/Sorceries which seems odd when you're in red but having more dragons is always worthwhile I suppose.

Either way looks like a fun deck to play!
