@Jaypay1994: Thanks for commenting!

Cloven Casting and Djinn Illuminatus were actually in the deck until fairly late in the build cycle but I cut them to try to trim down my top-end. Neither seemed good enough to justify their costs since I'm not leaning on Instants and Sorceries as heavily as other Izzet decks might -- they're a subtheme, sure, but I really don't want to put 7 mana into plays that are pretty bad outside of that subtheme.

Crackling Drake is pretty much just a better version of Enigma Drake , except the latter is a dollar less and I wanted to trim down my costs a little. The difference between the two cards seems marginal. Drawing a card would indeed be nice but my playgroup doesn't run all that much graveyard hate so that's the main difference between them. That said, if I happen to pull one at some point, I may try to slip it into the deck alongside Enigma Drake. I'm not sure offhand what to cut; maybe Stormchaser Chimera ? But the Scry is nice so I don't know.

If you go with more multi colored instants and sorceries, you might want to consider Cloven Casting . aside from that, Crackling Drake and Djinn Illuminatus might be on your radar?

Take out all the high cost CMC spells and keep only the efficiently costed ones. You don't need cards like:

You also have two copies of Ponder in your list. After cutting those cards you should have about 100 cards. You were running too many additional redundant effects. Hope that helps.

Niv-Mizzet, Parun, Djinn Illuminatus, Melek, Izzet Paragon, Galvanoth, and Crackling Drake are some creatures. Curiosity, Ophidian Eye, and Tandem Lookout go well with Niv-Mizzet, Parun, and as does Enter the Infinite. I've always thought that Crackleburr is fun. Stitch in Time/Ral Zarek and Krark's Thumb go together, and some good instants and sorceries are Risk Factor, Epic Experiment, Blast of Genius, Prophetic Bolt and Opt. My favorite Izzet enchantments are Firemind's Research, Future Sight, Counterbalance, and Telepathy.

Melek, Izzet Paragon, Goblin Electromancer, Galvanoth and Djinn Illuminatus are some creatures. Also, at the point that this deck is over $1000, i think you can afford to pay $3 for any form of Niv- Mizzet - namely, Niv-Mizzet, Parun, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, or Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius. Boomerang and Vapor Snag are some return cards. Another return is Ral's Dispersal, which is only good with Ral, Caller of Storms. Tandem Lookout, Ophidian Eye, and Curiosity all go with Niv- Mizzet. For the same reason as Goblin Electromancer, i think Jace's Sanctum and Baral, Chief of Compliance are good.

Another category of card that leaps to mind is cards with replicate, sure Shattering Spree is out of the question but how about Train of Thought or Pyromatics or the big kahuna Djinn Illuminatus making for that sweet sweet value with all those pings, then there is Embermaw Hellion which i know doesnt have flying so it's subject to the twins but turns all those pings into shocks, for straight boardwiping value. and to top it all off there is always damage doublers that can be used as either finishers or improv board wipes such as Insult // Injury or, sigh, Angrath's Marauders

Have you ever considered putting in Mirari or Djinn Illuminatus?
