I'm working on tuning a RUG list, and I've found Harvest Pyre to be effective over Roast in most cases. My deck particularly benefits from instant-speed spells and holding mana, so I also run Thought Scour instead of Serum Visions.

Perhaps try swapping 1 of your 2 Roasts for 1 Harvest Pyre, also making Izzet Charms third mode more effective.

This isn't a dedicated reanimator deck like, say, Griselbrand or Bubble Hulk decks. It is much more of a Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip deck with Gifts Ungiven lines as a finisher. Because of this, card-neutral cantrips such as Thought Scour are much more effective at stocking the graveyard than cards that are card-disadvantage like Faithless Looting, in large part because they can act in combination with a Jace or Snapcaster Mage.

The only card that contradicts this notion in the current list (which will be undergoing an update soon) is Izzet Charm, which differs from the double-looting of Faithless by being much more versatile. If I wanted to consider other discard outlets, I would probably look at Collective Brutality before I considered looting.

  1. I think 4 Mana Leak and 3 Izzet Charm should be enough for most threats and some sideboarded Spell Pierce can't hurt. Eventually I'll pick up some Remand if I decide it'd make a big enough difference to warrant the price.
  2. How do you feel about the card numbers for Anger of the Gods and the one-CMC damage spells, is 3 Angers too many and should I toss some to the side? I feel like if I'm going for control being able to stop early aggro is important, and while the one-CMC's can do a lot of damage for cheap, it doesn't spread out in the event of a token/early aggro game.
  3. I'll pick up some Echoing Truth when the shop opens up probably, for now that card and Rift will have the same effects in most matchups anyways so it shouldn't be a large difference, but I'll consider sideboarding it in favor of other removal after some playtesting.

Thank you for all the help by the way, most of the cards you've mentioned I've either completely forgot existed or never new in the first place so it's helping a lot.

Is Baral #4 really better than Electromancer #4? Seems like you would only ever want 1 Baral but multiple electros are fine, sometimes even good. Thought Scour also seems weak given that it's just Reach Through Mists until you PiF, and GUn into PiF is game anyways if you have a Baral. Honestly Merchant Scroll or Izzet Charm both seem soo much better than that. As for the sideboard Crumble to Dust doesn't seem like it does anything, ritualing into it is the only way you'd be able to cast it soon enough for it to be relevant and that seems bad. What deck would you want 3 copies of Empty against? Honestly I think the Madcap Experiment into Platinum Emperion package is the way to go with storm sideboards right now.

Also, Izzet Charm has been unimpressive in testing, think I'm going to swap them out and max out Think Twice and add two Remands.

Hey Peanut3181 thanks for the comments.

I agree, it's possible, but it's not really working. I'm building (separately) a prototype of this deck, which I'll import. I'm re-evaluating each card for it's 1) Mana Production value and 2) It's storm count interaction. I feel without the Storm there is not enough consistent win-con. Trying to figure out which ones are the best, haven't done a full analysis yet. It feels like Ignite Memories is good, and Grape Shot. Mind's Desire is kind of interesting too.

Any idea which one, or which couple I should be running? There all Sorcery. Grapeshot feels like it may not have enough power to eliminate all opponents in 1 shot, where Ignite Memories has some potential? I do play spells which is why Mind's Desire can be a big concerning.

Once I have my analysis done I'll update it. Removing a bunch of creatures, and only using combos and synergy that also aid in my storm counts as well. I'm going to get the red ramping Mana Geyser and probably Seething Song in there too.

Another issue I'm having with the deck is with getting going. I'm used to my Kaalia of the Vast where I'm setup on turn 2, 3, 4 and winning on turn 6. Playing Melek, Izzet Paragon I feel like turn 9 I'm still waiting and somewhat defenseless. I've had some success defending with Cyclonic Rift and Snap with some flashback and copy early on, but I feel it needs to ramp faster.

I think this is because of your recommendation that I need more drawing, but not sure which way to go, Visions of Beyond, Gitaxian Probe or larger draws. I'm going to pull a list to list comparison with your build and see which ones I'm missing. Telling Time maybe?

Show and Tell + Omniscience + Enter the Infinite + Laboratory Maniac or Beacon of Tomorrows is a possibility if it can meet my storm count requirements, but creatures feel bad.

What's your opinion on Izzet Charm, I find it nice because it's modular, but a few games now none of the modes helped me in so many situations. Scrub it?

Sensei's Divining Top has been great at utilizing Melek, Izzet Paragon once he is out, but what other good options are there? Deranged Assistant was kind of like hmm because he helps with mana production, but the isn't that awesome, would be better.

Any other ways to keep my top decking going smoothly?
