Choose one — Counter target noncreature spell unless its controller pays 2; or Izzet Charm deals 2 damage to target creature; or draw two cards, then discard two cards.

Thanks for the suggestions and +1's!
Possibility Storm seems like it would work well in here, but I'm not sure what I would take out..
Izzet Charm is a card ive never regretted drawing, i run 1 of mb and its so versatile, it lets you counter, shock, or faithless looting, not a card id want 3 or 4 of, but 1 of is perfection
my build was closer to yours when i expected heavy aggro, but my meta is fairly diverse now so chained sits in the sb, personally i also like a 1 of Cyclonic Rift , its a pseudo Azorius Charm if need be, or a major control piece later on especially vs mono blue or mono black, bc if youre at turn 7 against aggro its basically your game anyway. it also hits Stormbreath Dragon which dodges chained, d sphere, charm, anger
True. It's too bad there aren't any "draw cards then discard" in your colors like Izzet Charm to help you filter through stuff.
+1 Pretty solid deck, I play american too, nice! Have you tested this deck against an intensive aggro deck with haste? You should use some cards on your sidedeck like Celestial Flare or Izzet Charm . Siding that by Azorius Charm would help to control haste monsters, cause returning a creature with haste won't do much. Most of your sidedeck cards is against control/mirrored matchups, I suggest removing 2 Negate for those ones. Btw, one of Izzet Charm effects works like a Negate too.
Remand is solid in modern. Electrolyze is also another great choice. Cryptic Command is a staple if money isn't a problem. Izzet Charm has seen a little play. Celestial Colonnade is a great man-land. hope these suggestions help. :) i have a U/W control deck if you want to check it out. glhf
I think you need some cards like Shock
to go with Elite Arcanist
.You should also keep Izzet Charm
to go with Elite Arcanist
. It is good for drawing cards and dealing damage. Guttersnipe is good with Elite Arcanist
because you can get a cheap 1 mana spell for 4 damage. You should probably replace Stymied Hopes
with spells like Dissolve
and/or Swan Song
, if you are going to include Swan Song
i would do 2 of it and 2 of Dissolve
Added Hammer of Purphoros to the sideboard. Yeah, the idea was mainly to throw opponent off balance at their end step. Plus with Stymied Hopes and Izzet Charm I am hoping to be able to counter until combo can complete.
Thanks, ProXeno! I've actually had pretty good luck working around Ember Swallower , but I see what you're saying. I need to hit my LSG soon to get the cards I'm needing to fully flesh out my deck. I most definitely think I'll side out Anger of the Gods for Lightning Strike , a card I had been thinking about adding anyway. I've been eyeing Hypersonic Dragon as well, hopefully I can get a hold of a few. I'm thinking of adding a couple Izzet Charm and more Nivix Cyclops as soon as I can. Thanks again for the suggestions!
