Izzet Charm Discussion
6 hours ago
So far none of these situations are incredibly unpreventable. If you have a player who uses lots of mana rocks to hit say a turn 2 Kozilek play more counter magic or artifact destruction. Here is a list of cards to effectively prevent that. Vandalblast, Path to Exile, Force of Will, Disenchant, Gleeful Sabotage, Natural State, Naturalize, Nature's Claim, Seal of Cleansing, Seal of Primordium, Abrupt Decay, Annul, Arcane Denial, Artifact Blast, Counterspell, Countersquall, Cursecatcher, Dash Hopes, Daze, Delay, Deprive, Disdainful Stroke, Negate, Essence Scatter, False Summoning, Force Spike, Illumination, Izzet Charm, Judge's Familiar, Mana Drain, Mana Leak, Mana Tithe, Miscalculation, Nullify, Preemptive Strike, Prohibit, Psychic Barrier, Remand, Remove Soul, Rites of Refusal, Rune Snag, Scent of Brine, Spell Pierce, Steel Sabotage, Stubborn Denial, Withering Boon, Journey to Nowhere, Suspension Field, Ancient Grudge, Artifact Mutation, Cradle to Grave, Crumble, Crush, Shatter, Destructive Revelry, Devour in Shadow, Divine Offering, Doom Blade, Dreadbore, Terminate, Echoing Ruin, Elvish Scrapper, Fury Charm, Glissa's Scorn, Go for the Throat, Hero's Demise, Hull Breach, Malicious Affliction, Overload, Oxidize, Pongify, Rapid Hybridization, Gift of Tusks, Primitive Justice, Rakdos Charm, Reprisal, Shattering Pulse, Smash to Smithereens, Smelt, Soul Reap, Sundering Growth, Tel-Jilad Justice, Terror, Valorous Stance, Vendetta, Victim of Night, Wear, Wretched Banquet.
All of these cards could most likely have stopped at least part of that combo. In here are a mix of all the colors in magic. And this isn't even all of the cards that could respond to that series of plays. Of course some of these are expensive, some probably are not the best for Commander. But if you sit here and say we should ban a card like sol ring because maybe someone will get very lucky and have all the needed cards for a t2 Eldrazi titan then all I have to say is maybe you should make it so your deck has responses to a t1 sol ring or a t2 Eldrazi. Commander is the format where players are encouraged to do insane things to dream of that miracle hand, but it is also like any other format. You need to build your deck to have responses if that miracle hand was to happen. Don't complain that someone always wins because they have the t1 sol ring/mana crypt/mana vault if you neglect to put adequate responses in your deck. Same goes for any big Eldrazi or a Blightsteel Colossus. Luck is a part of this game too and when the time comes that you have no response to that player with the t2 Kozilek hand just be excited that you saw a t2 Kozilek, and have fun, it isn't the end of the world, Murder could be the card on top of your deck.
TL;DR: Play cheap removal in your EDH decks in case of emergency. And Luck is a cruel mistress at times.

Sign in Blood. Gitaxian Probe. Manamorphose. Those three immediately come to mind. Tibalt's not going to last more than a turn regardless. If his discard wasn't random he might actually be quasi-playable.
Thing is, from the day he was released, not a single decklist has featured Tibalt at a sanctioned event. Not even in block. It's generally agreed upon that he's bar none the worst walker ever made. I'm all for brewing. I'm famous on this site for vampires of all things. But Tibalt is pretty much universally accepted as an awful card. I may have come on a bit strong in expressing my points here, but I strive to teach and educate.
Also if you splashed blue Izzet Charm would be incredible here. Maybe consider main or side Rakdos Charm because such versatility is hard to come by and SOMEHOW Splinter Twin decks are still alive without splinter twin itself.
Hell, you could maybe even get away with a one-of Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace
Thanks for taking this calmly. I'm tired of things getting heated online for no reason (I deleted my youtube account because it was getting ridiculous.)

Izzet Charm seems like it might be worth a look in the sideboard -- it's at least more flexible than a bolt and might be able to blunt threats without giving up card draw. Sweet deck though.

I reference to the comment you made on my Temur deck, it is not that you deck is bad necessarily. It is just unfocused and is on a budget... as compared to my highly tuned deck that is worth close to $2,000. When I first started, my decks didn't look too different from what you have going on here. Mine is also a tap out control deck, while yours will likely be more of a midrangey deck.
As for what suggestions I would make now that we have the archetype hammered out and that you want to keep your Primordial Hydras:
-2 Temur Charm
-4 Vexing Devil. I know you like them (and go ahead and disregard this if you really want to keep them)... but they really are not as good in practice as they are on paper. Giving your opponent a choice is usually not what makes a card good as they will always choose the option that is least harmful to them.
And then I will touch your sideboard when we get the main board fleshed out. But usually a sideboard is use to solidify match ups which are common in modern. For example, Feed the Clan is very good in the burn match up and is a good example of a sideboard card.
As far as what to add, I am not going to tell you exactly what to add. but rather, give a list of cards that are good (and relatively budget friendly, but you can further narrow down the list as per your tastes and budget) and say roughly how many cards at each cmc slot you should have. In those 27 spots, I would add:
+4 Lightning Bolt (this for sure)
+9 more 2 drops: Nacatl Outlander, Stormblood Berserker, Viridian Emissary, Coiling Oracle, Scavenging Ooze, River Boa, Burning-Tree Emissary, Heir of the Wilds, Mana Leak, Izzet Charm, Simic Charm, Vines of Vastwood
Hooting Mandrills could even be thought of as something more like a 3-4 drop. Sometimes even a 1-2 drop if it is late enough in the game.

Can't believe I missed Izzet Charm! Probably will wait until I've played it for real and find it a home.

+1 Fun looking deck! One card I think is nice addition might be Izzet Charm it has a lot of utility that might be helpful.
