Izzet Charm Discussion

DiJaxx on Shorecrasher Master

This deck has a solid idea. I feel like it could be improved on though;

First off, it doesn't look like you have much to do on turn 1. Maybe consider putting in Wind Zendikon so you have some air presence, or Nivmagus Elemental so that you have something to do T1

Also it seems like this deck always needs both blue and red. If you have the money, consider a playset of Cascade Bluffs to ensure you always have the right color.

And more on mana efficiency, consider more dual-mana symbols, since you can play them with either color mana, but it still fuels your blue devotion. Nivmagus Elemental is great even if you don't use his ability. A 1/2 on T1 that gets all the elemental buffs and fuels devotion. Also I think you need Crackleburr. Dual mana symbols, plus it's a removal toolbox as long as you have creatures and that untap symbol makes me smile :)

Personally I'm not a fan of Void Stalker or Mulldrifter and I think you need a playset of Purphoros.

Also maybe Izzet Charm? It's a quick counter, or creature burn, or 2-loot so you can grab the cards you want.

Some Izzet Charm's and some Guttersnipe's are always great. Check my deck out it's also a R/B with similar ideas behind it

That Acually doesn't repeat the Living Lore thing....ultimatum is exiled so it's 1 and done.... Also Izzet Charm like cards be needed to feed it into the graveyard to cast it earlier

They need to unban Dig Through Time.

PLEASE. DO IT. Some of the most fun games I've played had Dig involved.

EOT Dig Through Time. Response, Dig Through Time. Remand your Dig. Negate your Remand. Dispel your Dig. Izzet Charm your Dig. Counterflux your Izzet Charm. Counterflux your Dig.

At the end of this, neither Digs resolve. However, two turns later we each have five cards in hand. Sweeeeeet.

LioAME3, I agree! If Bolt drew us cards, I'd definitely be running more of them. So far, Beast Within has been a pretty versatile answer to many things, and I've never been unhappy to draw it. I've yet to test it extensively, but so far, it seems good.

ilagirl, it's true that leaving them with a 3/3 is far from ideal, but I much prefer it in dealing with Siege Rhino and Liliana of the Veil. The problem with bouncing these is that you still need a counterspell next turn to deal with them. If you don't, this allows them to get Rhino's ETB trigger another time or reset Lili's counters. Additionally, with Junk increasingly running 4 Voice of Resurgence mainboard, I want something that can answer their threats during my own turn.

GlistenerAgent, I personally don't think the deck needs any more cantrips. We're already running 4 Serum Visions and 3 Peer Through Depths/Telling Times, plus a variable number of Izzet Charms and many other spells that draw cards, so finding Scapeshift really isn't a problem. I can see Monastery Siege being useful as a sideboard card against Burn, but it is less versatile than Spellskite and Obstinate Baloth, so I don't think it'll be in my sideboard anytime soon.

I'm not sure how competitive your local area is but Lightning Bolt is the red must have and it's only 1.50 on average per bolt. For draw spells try Think Twice because it's instant and has flash back. Izzet Charm is a solid game 1 spell as it does a little bit of everything you could want. Mana Leak is a very cheap spell at 1 dollar a peice and will for a long time counter their stuff. Peek is another card to consider for the budget version of Gitaxian Probe Probe $3 a peice while peek $0.25. Id also suggest Kiln Fiend as another option. Some decks also run Rift Bolt because it's a delayed Lightning Bolt and is cheap.

I am trying to keep it a bit different from my cruel control deck. Just because

But that being said...I am not a huge fan of Izzet Charm in General and don't want to pony up the cash for 2 Inkmoth Nexus but think they would really help.
