Izzet Charm Discussion
5 days ago
I would also up the count for the instants and sorceries. I used to play Jeleva, and I have learned a few tricks about her. If you want to run counterspells, I would make sure they the "counterspell" is optional, like in Izzet Charm or Cryptic Command, a counterspell exiled with Jeleva is basically useless. Keep in mind you only get one spell at a time with Jeleva, and usually, the spells from your own deck will be better than the ones from your opponents, so might as well make them big and splashy. Some reccomendations: Bribery, Army of the Damned, Insurrection, Acquire, and Worst Fears. if you are cutting creatures, I would cut any creatures that don't directly deal with instants and sorceries, they may be good, but I think you will find more benefit from having a few synergistic creatures and more instants and sorceries. One last idea, Once Jelva has used her spells, you want to recast her, so I would try to add a few Sacrifice outlets like High Market or Ashnod's Altar just to make sure you get an opportunity to re-cast her.

Let's start with the most grixis card ever: Cruel Ultimatum, not running at least one copy is a sin. Some decks even go all in on the ultimatum, filling themselves with removal/counterspells, counting on Cruel Ultimatum to close the game.
Some builds of grixis control have a bit of discard with cards like Inquisition of Kozilek, Rakdos's Return, Raven's Crime, Duress, Consult the Necrosages and Blightning, but controlling your opponent's hand and countering their spells are usually mutually exclusive.
Now, the threats: Tasigur, the Golden Fang, Gurmag Angler and Delver of Secrets Flip are the most common in this kind of deck but Enigma Drake, Sedraxis Specter, Shriekmaw and Goblin Dark-Dwellers are good options.

Hey Mannu_1978! Thanks for commenting!
Izzet Charm sounds great actually, not sure how I missed it when testing a UR version of the deck, so thanks for the suggestion. Not sure if it's worth splashing blue just for it though.
Chalice of the Void is a fantastic sideboard card, I would certainly have a few if they were in my budget.
Inkwell Leviathan as a 4 of is probably a great call actually.

Izzet Charm fits very well in TFT.Inkwell Leviathan should be 4 of, IMO.
You can try Chalice of the void vs discard, and Sacrifice it to TFT. Faithless Looting is a great card but you have T2 substitutes.
T1 Land Simian Spirit Guide + Chalice of the Void (1) Discard blocked
T2 Land Izzet Charm Discard Inkwell & Sharuum
T3 TFT Sacrifice the Chalice, reanimate.

Just ideas !
Bumping CommanderEesha's Skullclamp suggestion. It would be absolutely broken in this deck !

Cards to consider (if you haven't already):
...and for maximum chuckles, it would be awesome to find room for Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded here. I think you can get some work out of him.

With an active ascension, Rest for the Weary is crazy against any aggressive decks. I'd also recommend taking out Rewind. I like the card but it is way to slow and doesn't help TITI or ascension due to 4cmc. I'd rather see Sleight of Hand. Same problem with Electrolyze... it's in my top 5 favorite cards and I wouldn't run more than two of them since it is slow and misses many key creatures in modern now. I'd run a few Izzet Charm instead, maybe a 2/2 or a 1/3 split with charm on priority.
Also, if you want burn and ascension to be wincons, Thought Scour might be your best friend. If you don't care for ascension/is in there more for the lols, you can forget it if you don't want to self mill.

First things first- its important to know the aproxamate format that your friends play- casual 'throw whatever together and we'll self regulate' is great, but needs to be discussed. If they're playing modern then this deck will be a little slow due to the larger surge cards. I'd look at things like Mana Leak, Flame Slash etc. With this deck- the construction is a little creature heavy. 3 Enigma drake/4 stormchaser/3 swiftspear/3 jori is enough to back a very solid spells deck. The tournament play version is based around Delver of Secrets Flip and swiftspear and is affectionately referred to as 'delver'. Lists looked something like Izzet Delver pior to Brainstorm, Gitaxian Probe and Treasure Cruise bans and after that something like Pyrodrakedelver is still pretty commonly played. I'd reccomend looking up the top 8's for ideas if you go that way.
The core gameplan is just to play small creatures then use spells to protect your creatures and finish the game. Izzet Charm and Vapor Snag or Unsummon are super practical here, and if you want to push closer to midrange in a more casual meta Spellheart Chimera does a decent impression of a second enigma drake and can be backed by a powerful engine in Faithless Looting/Cathartic Reunion/Izzet Charm/Think Twice/Burning Vengance/Secrets of the Dead/Flame Jab. Your lands are good enough to run pretty much any of this, though I'd consider Wandering Fumarole or Faerie Conclave in place of swiftwater if trading permits
Big advice in noncompetitive metas where you're mostly playing with the same deck over and over, have a core of 3 4-ofs that make your deck tick- in this deck it would be 4- 3 ofs in enigma Drake, Jori En, Ruin Diver, Monastery Swiftspear and Stormchaser Mage, 4 Lightning Bolt, then run a lot of singleton cards. A Negate, a Mana Leak, a Reverberate a Redirect, a Temur Battle Rage, an Electrolyze , a Wild Ricochet etc so that no two games go exactly the same. Otherwise, things get stale pretty quick. If things get competitive, pick up full sets of the things that have been working best, then keep a stable of cards to switch in and out as the game permits. Sideboards are your friend if things go like that.
