Izzet Charm Discussion

Batterhorn is not anywhere near woth 5 mana, generally speaking you dont need more than a Vandalblast for only-artifact hate

Exava, Rakdos Blood Witch is pretty underwhelming, haste isnt too relevant in EDH, and she doesn't give any +1/+1 counters to things.

Hellhole Flailer 4 damage each turn is rather underwhelming.

Marchesa's Smuggler just doesnt do anything, unless you plan on killing with commander damage, which isnt what marchesa is good at

Master of Waves this is just not worth it, if it dies, which it needs to to abuse the ETB trigger, all the tokens die, not worth running unless you are mono blue or are running a Horde of Notions deck

Molten Primordial this isnt worth the CMC, generally running primordials in non-green EDH decks isnt worth it.

Nekrataal never been a fan of this card, its just too limiting for me.

Ogre Battledriver again haste isnt worth it, +2/0 and haste, maybe, but this is more for goblin decks, you want abusable ETB and Death triggers, and ways to get +1/+1 counters on things.

Oona's Blackguard a quick look through your list shows that this and Marchesa's Smuggler are your only rouges, you would be much better off with something like a Sage of Fables because you have a fair amount of abusable ETB wizards, and the removal helps with abusing Flayer of the Hatebound's undying, in combination with a Carrion Feeder to get +1/+1 counters you can remove for more cards later.

Rockslide Elemental this is virtually a vanilla creature, it will just get chump-blocked or killed and wont generate an value for you

Simic Fluxmage way too slow to do anything, not a repeatable effect either

Slum Reaper just run Merciless Executioner the functional reprint of Fleshbag Marauder

Taurean Mauler same thing as Rockslide Elemental

Amok discarding at random is almost NEVER worth it, too risky for almost no reward on this card.

Unspeakable Symbol solid card, but you might want some lifegain, that 3 life will add up fast.

Slave of Bolas i love the flavor, but its not a strong effect, run Insurrection with a sac-outlet down and just go to town.

Spinal Embrace same as slave

Black Sun's Zenith is terrible for you, why, if you just Wrath of God all creatures with +1/+1 counters will come back, zenith gives -1/-1 counters, these remove +1/+1 counters therefore they dont come back, honestly running Crux of Fate or something of the like would be a better option

Now for cards i would try and add

Blood Artist and Falkenrath Noble your goal should be to abuse death and ETB triggers, these are always good for that

Cyclonic Rift staple for all blue EDH decks

Vedalken AEthermage i feel you have enough wizards for this guy to be quite effective as a toolbox card (never play him, ever)

graft creatures (Cytoplast Manipulator,Helium Squirter,Novijen Sages,Vigean Graftmage) you can use graft to give +1/+1 counters to creatures you want to bring back, and use a sac outlet to sac the graft creature and the others, and then sort the triggers so the graft guy comes back first, then re-graft the others. ( you should probably run novigen sages at least, maybe helium too not sure )

Dimir House Guard sac outlet or a tutor for 4CMC, great multi-use card

Victimize sac a creature with a +1/+1 counter and get 2 back, and the sac'd creature at end step

Dark Prophecy you are 3 color, but this should still be worth it.

Viscera Seer so, so good. cheap effective free sac outlet.

Pawn of Ulamog get free mana

Sadistic Hypnotist effective free sac outlet

Rakdos Charm / Izzet Charm these are both incredibly good in EDH

Deathbringer Thoctar with marchesa its pretty much impossible to kill, and could easily get big enough to kill a player, and at the very least infinitely kills 1 health creatures, great against tokens

Falkenrath Aristocrat free virtually unkillable sac outlet

Grimgrin, Corpse-Born free sac outlet, creature destruction, pretty good

Mark of Mutiny this is hilarious

Phyrexian Metamorph / Evil Twin / Dack's Duplicate clone spells are good, these are especially good.

Sakashima the Impostor this is a clone that allows you to clone your own legendaries, double marchesa, grimgrin etc.

Fleshwrither this guy could just keep coming back, and is great for tutoring out 4 drops, its up to you if you think you have enough utility/ key 4 drops to tutor

Sage of Hours and Necrotic Ooze you want these two if you go with grimgrin, think about it for a second.

Sage of Fables i talked about this before, but i thought i should mention, it puts a +1/+1 counter on marchesa, meaning marchesa will revive herself if she is killed.

Preyseizer Dragon and Scourge of the Throne these two should probably be together, preyseizer is ok, but with something like scourge it is really quite strong, and hard to kill

in our meta Agent of Erebos is solid, especially with Fleshwrither

Riptide Laboratory abuse wizards etb, and protect marchesa

abusing a Gray Merchant of Asphodel could fuel an Unspeakable Symbol

Izzet Signet / Dimir Signet / Rakdos Signet a few more rocks and you should be set for the mana base

You can certainly make budget replacements, but some cards are absolutely necessary. The landbase is pretty much set in stone (though Misty Rainforests can be replaced with Forests and Islands and Flooded Grove with a Breeding Pool or something). You need four Scapeshift and 8-9 ramp spells.

Cryptic Command can be replaced with Gigadrowse, which is worse but gets the job done reasonably well.

Snapcaster Mage can leave the deck entirely, and you can play Relic of Progenitus or extra Izzet Charm in its spot. The Relic draws a card while also messing with Goyfs, making it perfect for this deck.

Remand can leave for Mana Leak/ Rune Snag if needed, but know that the card draw is incredibly powerful and you will miss it.

If your friend needs any other budget replacements, let me know!

I feel that Snapcaster Mage isn't as good in this deck as it is in Jeskai Control or Twin. I have many more expensive spells, as well as ramp spells that aren't really worth flashing back. The Izzet Charm(s) is very versatile and can be the perfect card in many different scenarios. I prefer Telling Time to Think Twice because the former draws a better card for the same cost. The flashback on Think Twice is nice, but ultimately it's not necessary and I'd rather have the filtering.

Oh man. Imagine three +1's.

Do you think more Snappy over something like Izzet Charm or some other cantrip would be good? No more dig to interfere with the flashback and it's probably better to get use out of your quality spells than the sub-par ones. Also, maybe Think Twice over Telling Time?
