Izzet Charm Discussion

Ethon on UR Relver AKA T Cruise is back but now it's a 3/4

Whilst it may be true that Bedlam Reveler is the strongest card in your deck, running 4 copies is a bad idea. Running this many copies dramatically increases the likelyhood of you drawing multiples, which will be dead cards considering the fact that reveler discards your hand before drawing 3. Not only is this somewhat of an issue, but if you're holding multiple revellers, it will decrease the likelyhood of you decreasing the mana cost to the optimal amount. You should run some cheap interaction instead of the playset, trim it down to 2-3 would be my suggestion.

I would also look into adding Snapcaster Mage, and no, mana is not an issue when all your spells have a cmc of 1. Snappy is impactful in both the earlier stages and later stages of the game, using Snapcaster Mage on a Lightning Bolt? Sign me up! I also don't understand the lack of Spell Snare in this deck, seeing as it will interact with so many impactful spells for such a cheap cost.

Considering the fact that you only have 17 lands, 2 mana spells can be slightly daunting, but it seems silly to me, not adding a copy of Remand and/or Izzet Charm as they are both fantastic in this shell. And no, just because remand draws you a card, does not mean that it is bad with Bedlam Reveler. Drawing is always nice.

Last but not least, i would consider the card Young Pyromancer. Does so much for a shell with this arbitrarily large number of cheap instant/sorcery cards.

Unless you plan on adding a looting effect like Faithless Looting, Izzet Charm, or Desolate Lighthouse I would cut reveler down to 3 copies, as having two in your hand, or even worse 3 or 4 means the other copies are dead cards. Other than that, I like what you did with this. my own version Izzet Prowess? (the link wouldnt work) runs 3 Remands just because they help cantrip and are almost a timewalk early in the game.

I'be never played with Isochron Scepter, but I think Izzet Charm or Lightning Bolt would be hilarious!

Emrakul, the Aeons Torn is better than brogenitus.. When i played Polymorph i used Mutavault as a target, could aswell have been Blinkmoth Nexus. The biggest problem with Polymorph is that they can remove your token as a response and Polymorph fizzles.. I like how you use Cloudform to counter this. Another target with hexproof is Simic Keyrune. Its actually really nice, you can tap itself for the green mana so you dont need a splash.

See Beyond is nice if you get your fatty in your hand. The new land Geier Reach Sanitarium does this as well without taking up a spot, allowing you to play more control. Any draw + discard effect shuffles your fatty into your library, I don't know if See Beyond is your best choice..

Index is a bad card, and Dissolve is a bit pricey for a counterspell. May i suggest Peer Through Depths (much better if you have an instant/sorcery token generator tho..)? If you splash red you have access to Izzet Charm that both counters and lets you discard your fatty. Faithless Looting is another red card that would help you out alot, and if you decide to splash red you have access to Dragon Fodder that you can get with Peer Through Depths.

JordanSanFran It's part of why things like Izzet Charm get played over "better" counterspells. Hitting Izzet on a Narset is way better than hitting Forbid. Obviously hitting Cryptic Command or Mystic Confluence is great too, but it's true..you can always hit a big bunch of soft counters and have a bad Narset turn. Ideally you want to setup your Narset, Enlightened Master attack with a scry or Brainstorm type effect.

EDIT: Your deck might be tagged private. Are you on the million walks and extra attacks plan?

Ok, I'm hoping the combination of Izzet Charm and Mana Leak are enough counters in this deck. I'm hesitant to put in the command because it costs so much. Remand may be a better fit than Mana Leak, I'm not quite sure yet. I'm also toying around with the idea of Pact of Negation for the turn that I win. Thanks for the suggestions!

Faithless Looting and Thought Scour seem like shoe-ins, possibly Izzet Charm. If you're in green for Mulch etc, a deck like this wants Tarmogoyf. Maybe Mystic Retrieval and Grapple with the Past?

After testing the deck irl for a bit, Lumbering Falls and Izzet Charm work wonderfully in the amounts I have right now for them! I tried Coiling Oracle, but it's surprisingly harder to get blue and green mana out by turn two than just green, so I'll be keeping Elvish Visionary. Thanks HairyManBack!
