Rune-scarred demon and sphinx of uthuun, though powerful cards, seems off here. Your average cmc is around 2.X, so some seven drops will probably never hit the board before you win or die. You should definitely try more aggressive unblockables. My advice would be either Elusive Spellfist or Slither Blade, with the spellfist being the better choice. Mystical Teachings could also be worth trying to find you some removal if need be.

nice deck. I have a very similar one, built around the same creatures, basically.

you could try replacing Artful Dodge with Slip Through Space, if you want more draw/cantrips. Additionally, Renegade Tactics serves a very similar purpose.

Nice idea using Elusive Spellfist, I think I may steal that idea. =)

EDIT: here's the deck i use, btw. Flying Purple Pauper Eater

So I run an Izzet Unblockable deck where I cast spells such as Titan's Strength, Brute Force, and Distortion Strike on creatures like Kiln Fiend, Nivix Cyclops, and Elusive Spellfist.

One of the big hangups of the deck is that Distortion Strike is a Sorcery, which means my opponents see it coming from a mile away. I could put Quicken in here but now I am adding extra complications to my deck. I considered Hypersonic Dragon but at 5 he's slow and I already have Zada, Hedron Grinder taking up my free slots.

So I looked online and the only relevant card I could find is Veil of Secrecy. Yes, there is also Piracy Charm but there is no guarantee my opponent will be running U, much less having actual Islands.

And this gets to be the problem. Veil of Secrecy gives Shroud. So if I just casually tap my lands and throw down a Titan's Strength, a Brute Force, a Temur Battle Rage, and than a Veil of Secrecy when things go to resolve, will my Veil resolve first and actually prevent the rest of my spells from taking hold?

What about Wee Dragonauts or Kiln Fiend instead of Elusive Spellfist? Wee Dragonauts gets a better pump and still have evasion while Kiln Fiend get massive pumps but doesn't have evasion, although you can overcome that with Vapor Snag and Lightning Bolt.

Elusive Spellfist is not as effective as how it seems. You have enough copies of creatures, 3 copies of Assault Strobe will be better option.

Dispel would be good if I figure out what to remove. However, I don't want to put in any artifact creatures because it won't work with Elusive Spellfist.

Hey butter83, awesome deck! I really like the idea that You've got here. (plus it's Jeskaim so... Heck Yes!) If you're interested, then I'd suggest Elusive Spellfist and Cast Through Time for this deck. The spellfist for some additional unblockable fun, and cast through time for the absolute insanity that can ensue. Awesome deck, man! sincerely, captain_Pugsley

Sorry it took me a while to get back with you guys.

Daring Apprentice I like your use of cards for draw power and card advantage, thanks for sharing! I have added a Command Tower and Mystic Monastery, I'm not sure why I didn't have them in the initial build lol. And I'm also totally using Kaho, Minamo Historian, she's awesome! I'm planning on using Jori En, Ruin Diver for card draw, he's pretty great. Especially with my low curve. My card advantage is going to be different from yours though, I'm wanting to be able to survive late game so my card advantage is taking form in cards like Frost Titan, Homura, Human Ascendant, and Yosei, the Morning Star. I don't want to have a bunch of high costing cards, I'm planning to try to keep it to 9 or 10 total. I'm also still wanting Thassa, God of the Sea, I just haven't picked her up yet.

Hey back Beio53! I have looked at cipher spells. I've got a Hidden Strings set aside, I'm just trying to figure out where I want to slide it in! I also enjoy the Hands of Binding. I feel like they would pair beautifully with my other tapping abilities, I'm just trying to figure out where to put them. I'm not sure how I feel about the Jhessian Balmgiver, it feels pretty fragile to me. I have been thinking about Mistfire Adept for a while, in addition to an Elusive Spellfist (I LOVE his art), and a Mystic of the Hidden Way. I like the Spectral Flight a lot but funny story; I'm actually wanting to cut my number of enchantments down to make room for a few more creatures while keeping my instant/sorcery count high. I'm not sure what I'm going to do quite yet honestly.
