Grixis Panorama Discussion
1 week ago
So, to start:
While your manabase is decently developed, 35 lands is an extremely low number for 3-color if you want to hit your fixing consistently, especially with your overwhelming inclination towards black (it's a lot harder to splash in Commander, so you may want to lighten that up after more deck testing, moreso since most of your black inclination comes from multicolored spells). To this end, I'd recommend adding Grixis Panorama and Crumbling Necropolis for a nice, handy 37 (an important threshold for consistently getting 3-land hands) that has a good bit of early fixing.
Furthermore, if you're shakily building a deck, remember the building blocks:
-10 ramp sources-10 draw sources-5 single-target removal sources-5 mass removal sources
You're halfway solid here, but your overwhelming reliance on artifact ramp might be a problem in your meta. I'd try Nightscape Familiar and Expedition Map to better support the wide amount of multicolored spells you have and fetch Urborg, because it's bloody Urborg. It's never a bad idea to diversify your ramp sources, lest Armageddon or Vandalblast set you back 5 turns.

Sword of Kaldra is a way to ping and exile with your commander
Is Defiant Bloodlord good enough? Maybe cut it for curve reasons
Braid of Fire is VIP with olivia. just use her ping ability in your upkeep for no downside! Yeah no mana burn!!!
Metallic Mimic seems good
Worn Powerstone could be good, power out your expensive threats
Pawn of Ulamog gives you a little extra value, might be better than some common vampire
another possible cut could be Hall of Triumph, your other anthemn effects are stronger

thanks for your Feedback and your great suggestions. let me come down to them step by step:
Reality Shift is a great Card i hadnt on my Radar. i will try to get my Hands on it.
Wild Ricochet would fit in this type of deck. only reason i dont play it is that i dont own one currently
Fellwar Stone and Star Compass are great. i play my copies of Stones in my other EDH-decks currently. Darksteel Ingot is great for me as my playgroup Plays a lot of artifact hate including board wipes. same reason why i play those mana rocks that can net me a Card. to be honest, a Izzet Cluestone draws me a Card in about 2 games out of 10 - mostly because i have other insane draw engines online.
Hypersonic Dragon is nice to have but maybe slotted out in future. maybe for the new god from Hour of Devastation. we will see :)
Izzet Chronarch is ok and helps getting my Little Fox online. i love the multicoloured flavor :) of course it could be changed to lower the curve.
Desolate Lighthouse is not necessary in here. first i like to avoid colorless mana as much as possible, second this deck offers so much Card Advantage that we dont Need this effect, third in multiplayer you will always hit something with Cards like Pyroblast :)
Lightning Greaves: i dont have a copie of them. i would Slot them in
i will soon have a look at your list, study it and will give ya a Feedback! go izzets! :)

I really like your list! I have an Izzet deck I'm working on as well and if you can spare a look I'd appreciate it, Jori En, Diving on a Budget
So for your deck,
Could Wild Ricochet have a place in here?
you have 7 sorcery spells you're giving flash with Hypersonic Dragon, is it still worth it?
how has Mana Flare preformed for you? doubling mana for your opponents seems risky, but i would like to hear your expirence with it

For cheap mana fixing (<$1):
Gift of Paradise
Pyramid of the Pantheon
Cuts I'd suggest:
Gideon's Lawkeeper for Journey to Nowhere
Manaplasm for Managorger Hydra or Forgotten Ancient
Ondu Giant for Wood Elves
Rhox War MonkSengir Vampire for Archfiend of Depravity or Desecration Demon
Serra Angel for Serra Avenger
Stormblood Berserker for Sulfuric Vortex
Circle of Flame for Mizzium Mortars
Glory of Warfare for Chromatic Lantern
Honor of the Pure for Spear of Heliod, if you really want an anthem effect.
Frost Breath for Mana Leak
Guardians' Pledge for Sakura-Tribe Elder (you really dont have enough white creatures for this effect)
Incinerate & Lightning Bolt for Terminate and Murder
Plummet for Oblivion Ring
Titanic Growth for Harmonize
War Report for Day of Judgment
Exploding Borders for Burnished Hart
Traveler's Amulet for Wayfarer's Bauble
I suggest choosing a theme for your deck. Right now it seems to be pulling in too many directions.
Want to cast and swing with Progenitus? Include cards that grant haste like Temur Ascendancy.
Want to play fun multicolored shenanigans? Include whatever value you like.
Want to use overcosted enchantment cycles? Include the Shrines.
Focusing will allow you to better determine what your deck wants. Regardless, I recommend playing heavy green to maximize your ability to mana ramp.

Yes your mana base is working good but, Terramorphic Expanse and Grixis Panorama would help to clean up your draw. Grixis Panorama is sort of a double edge sword, it lets you hit/jam in turn 3 the Drake or goat but, at the cost you need to pay mana to sac and search and yes, I don't think you can afford to play Evolving Wilds + Terramorphic Expanse too many tap lands will slow you down way too much.
Desolate Lighthouse is another card that might help.
All in all regards to the lands, I'm bring them up for utility all the while staying under a buck more then, your mana base isn't working. That said if you have the money for Shivan Reefs i would hold off on that. Serum Visions would be a way betting investment for this deck over Shivan Reef. Like you pointed out your lands are not causing (big)problems, I feel your draw need to be cleaner and nothing in legality in modern is better at that.

Thanks for the suggestion Darsul,
I think that Grixis Panorama is too slow, probably Terramorphic Expanse would be better, but I feel like the mana base is working well at the moment, I'm just planning to get some Shivan Reef so i can get rid of Swiftwater Cliffs

Grixis Panorama might be an option too (replacing 2 mountains 2 islands)
