Also for your mana curve I think if you want more 2 drops you might consider running 4 of Young Pyromancer and then maybe adding a flexible card like Izzet Charm . You can counter a non creature spell, do some spot removal, or get to your top end faster in 1 card. You could just cut a few 3 drops. My first cuts would be Protean Raider , or Call to Mind or Unwind . If you want more cards on your top end Ral, Storm Conduit might be good as a one or two of.

Daedalus19876: Thank you for putting this together.

I see you are also in favor of cutting Izzet Charm and Stifle . I pretty much agree on that, and will probably doing that myself shortly. I haven't used Stifle in the past 15 games I draw it and it sits pretty dead.

I'm surprised you cut Counterspell for something like Delay , do you find it to be too color intensive? I rank Counterspell above it in terms of things I'd personally include, especially since we have a lot of access to blue mana in this deck, and it's only a two color deck.

Another card I would put over Red Elemental Blast maybe is Gamble , though it's meta dependent if you're running into a lot of blue players. I think we have just enough interaction to deal with them though, so we don't need both Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast . Gamble is a decent tutor that usually gets us what we want.

You could probably cut Spell Pierce instead as well for Gamble . I would maybe add Mental Misstep over this, though it is pretty narrow.

I'm probably going to be adding Blood Moon to the deck. A few times when someone else has played it, it hasn't really disrupted me, and it absolutely destroys more complex mana bases. I've cut the number of mountains I run to 3 (as we have 3 fetches that can only get mountains), and I run 8 islands to ensure I don't get hosed by it myself. I am just figuring out what to cut for it.

Thanks for pointing out Volcanic Fallout , if I get around to testing Pyroclasm I will try that as well.

And yeah, I'm working on getting a Volcanic Island ...eventually. I've paused my spending on MtG at the moment haha.

I like Izzet Charm in this shell. Good against burn too.

How do you feel about a green splash?

R/B are arguably the worst 2 colors for sideboards (with white then green being the best).

Green would give you access to stuff like Raking Canopy as well as Simic Keyrune which is highly valuable to your deck.

As for Tron, pick your flavor of land destruction. Crumble to Dust is my pick. They can win through almost any form of hate, even Blood Moon and Pithing Needle effects so you just need to be quicker than they are. Keeping them off Tron will makes things easier.

Your actually decently tech'd against burn with Izzet Charm , Rune Snag , Lightning Bolt and Remand . If you need something more Kraken's Eye or Dragon's Claw can work wonders. I'm a personal fan of Amulet of Safekeeping as it's useful for against many decks and great against Storm. I also like Fountain of Renewal since it can be played turn 1 and involves no additional investment, plus can be cashed in if it gets to a point its not needed.

As far as the graveyard decks, you could run Relic of Progenitus or Surgical Extraction without splashing. You could run Leyline of the Void but if you side it in you would have to commit to mulling for it. Sentinel Totem and Tormod's Crypt are decent as well.

Liliana's Caress is good against Hollow One but you could use Hurkyl's Recall or Echoing Truth against it.

Dissipation Field and Anger of the Gods can be good against Izzet Phoenix & Humans but you need to survive long enough for them to be effective. Damping Sphere can slow Phoenix.
