Creature — Drake
Enigma Drake's power is equal to the number of instant and sorcery cards in your graveyard.

Enigma Drake Discussion

To go with the Enigma Drake route, I think the deck would need to go full Enigma Drake and this deck doesn't want that. It may conflict with the turns where you leave mana open for counterspells and graveyard hate exists (not to mention the slightly awkward curve).

cards or is one or the other fine too?
If either or is fine, here are some I thought of, izetas ones included:
:Omniscience, Search for Azcanta Flip, Thing in the Ice Flip, Cyclonic Rift, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Roil Elemental (These last 2 were cards I played with in my first magic casual magic deck and I still have special thoughts of them), Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Deepglow Skate, Enter the Infinite, Clone Legion, Swan Song, Baral, Chief of Compliance, Rite of Replication, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Chasm Skulker, and Teferi, Temporal Archmage.
:Lightning Bolt, Urabrask the Hidden, Wheel of Fortune, Malignus, Combustible Gearhulk, Hellkite Tyrant, Scourge of the Throne, Bedlam Reveler, Utvara Hellkite, Balefire Dragon, Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle, Kargan Dragonlord, Rekindling Phoenix, Dragonmaster Outcast, and Hour of Devastation.

Icbrgr I also think you can bring a nice flavor to your local FNM. You can definitely rack up some wins with this deck. I second the suggestion for some more draw power cards like Serum Visions and Opt, but I feel like the addition of other beefy izzet creatures like Nivix Cyclops, Spellheart Chimera, and Enigma Drake are worth considering. Overall I really like the blue moon / izzet blitz concept.
If y'all don't mind, I have a pet deck of my own that I have been working on for about a year now and I would really appreciate anything you think may further improve it. The playstyle is oriented around an early game board control, and aims to stabilize by the end of the game and swarm my opponent with tokens. It's very close to what I want it to be, but not quite optimized yet and I would like to hear what ya think. Thanks!

Jeskai is a weird deck to build on a budget. I've played a lot of jeskai and other / decks so I'm going to simply throw out some cards that I've used in the past or that, in theory, should work. I'll also add a little bit of analysis or information behind the logic of the cards.
Dragonlord Ojutai--> in a world where people are playing less spot removal and more BBE, having a flying card drawing hard to kill beater seems good. If you can protect him, he will run away with games and card advantage. Worst case, he is a pretty strong chump blocker to deal with creatures due to hexproof and decent stat lines.
Jace, Vryn's Prodigy Flip--> He's no Snapcaster Mage since he's awful with counterspells, but, he does fill at least some of the shoes that snappy wears... sometimes you just need that extra lightning bolt but you can't draw it, so loot. Sometimes he flips, and you then play that lightning bolt that you drew at a later time also! He does his job and I quite enjoy him.
Geist of Saint Traft--> Punches things. Hard.
Enigma Drake--> With so many spells in the deck, playing 2 drakes seems amazing. Will almost never be less than a 3-4 with flying for 3, which is already a decent body. Then add that you can grow little dragon buddy at instant speed because you Lightning Bolted you opponent again? I'm in!
Ojutai's Command--> I've heard it been referred to as the "poor man's cryptic and it isn't that far off.... It is NOT a replacement, however, it will serve as a place holder if you wanted a few.
Other than that, what ToolmasterOfBrainerd said looks good. I'm more or less giving you alternatives. Hopefully plenty of them.

Yeah I have played with TiTi before and I think its much more explosive than Young Pyromancer a lot of the times. You can usually find a win the turn it flips. I also like the synergy between Thing and Bedlam Reveler. I play one Thing in my sideboard for go wide strategies. My list is budget though so I dont have Snapcaster Mage. Working on getting some pretty soon. I also play Mana Leak over Logic Knot because I have Enigma Drake.
You can check my list out if you want, our lists are very similar. Izzmatic

My creature decklist is very similar to yours except i have no Enigma Drake and i have Merfolk Trickster instead of Slither Blade i mean we even have the same number of Adeliz and Baral oh and i'm in and out with Nimble Obstructionist he's in the side atm. There is still half a set to come out yet so hopefully something better fits in the two drop slot i don't like the double U in the merfolks cost. I was looking at Naban myself but unfortunately nothing really works with him that well in this kind of deck unless you change the deck quite a lot. I was half tempted to add him as a 1x so i could justify running Jaya's Immolating Inferno as an end game plan. It really just depends on what else we get to support wizards really.
