Epic Experiment


Exile the top X cards of your library. For each instant or sorcery with converted mana cost X or less among them, you may cast that card without paying its mana cost. Then put all cards exiled this way that weren't cast into your graveyard.

Magus of the Experiment

Creature - Goblin Wizard

, Sacrifice Magus of the Experiment: Exile the top X cards of your library. For each instant or sorcery card with converted mana cost X or less from among them, you may cast that card without paying its mana cost. Then put all cards exiled that weren't cast this way into your graveyard.

Let's do some science!



There was a hilarious Epic Experiment combo deck back when it was in Standard. Good times, good times.

Make another Ravnica magus, but no multicolor restriction. Go nuts.

But seriously - doomsday pile with Crackling Drake and hit for 44. It's not the BEST play, but it's a funny way to die.

Also: Epic Experiment ? What are your thoughts?

  1. Because spellslinger decks don't run that many creatures, you're probably going to need a few more board wipes. Perhaps Cyclonic Rift (don't hate me), Evacuation , Descent of the Dragons , Star of Extinction , or Volcanic Vision .
  2. If you're going to run cards like Everflowing Chalice , Hedron Archive , Mind Stone , and Temple of the False God , I would suggest running more X-spells. Cards such as Curse of the Swine , Molten Disaster , Starstorm , Epic Experiment , and Jaya's Immolating Inferno would give you more board wipe options, as well as explosive izzet shinanigans.
  3. Sentinel Tower is really only worth it if you was to storm out.
  4. I wouldn't recommend running Psychosis Crawler unless you want to focus on card draw. Same goes for Windfall . In this deck, Windfall does cause peripheral effect to occur, such as Locus God or Niv-Mizzet triggers. You would need to be playing against a deck with a lot of card draw, otherwise you might only be helping your opponents since you will probably be drawing more than them. I see that you have some cards with triggers bases on card draw, but since they are not your commander, there is no guarantee you will see them during a game.
  5. Overall, it seems like you are a little stuck between wheel, storm, and spellslinging. Personally, I think Jori En is bested suited for spellslinging. Baby's first Izzet deck. I'm so proud of you!

lotte3331: those two cards’ abilities allow you to cast them as part of the resolution of the trigger or the spell. So for instance, Hellcarver Demon would trigger, and when the trigger resolves, you sac all other permanents, discard your hand, exile the top 6 of your library, and then choose to cast any of them right away. Those spells then resolve after all of this happens because they were cast as part of the Demon’s triggered ability. Epic Experiment is the same way except it’s a spell and not a trigger.

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.

Riku decks are great, as you can make them in different ways to suit how you want the deck to run. I've run my Riku deck as a spells matter deck, then changed it to a creature ETB deck.

With spells, you can go the infinite turns route or value spells route, like what goodair said with big X spells like Banefire or Epic Experiment.

With creatures you can focus more on synergies with combos included. Palinchron combos with Riku on it's own, but I've found it's more fun to just copy value creatures like Inferno Titan, Mulldrifter and Woodfall Primus. Biovisionary is also a hilarious way to win, and not to hard if you run Rite of Replication, Phantasmal Image, Clever Impersonator, etc.
