Izzet Charm Discussion
1 day ago
I've been playing Enigma Drake in Magic Duels with a splash of Green for cards like Grapple with the Past and Fog. Modern seems a bit ambitious for this kind of deck, but for a fun budget list to shake things up seems pretty cool.
I'd take out Steam Augury and either one Mana Leak or the Rift Bolt to get in some copies of Cathartic Reunion. Amazing card advantage, most times better than Izzet Charm in its looting mode, but dead if you are hellbent, so not a full playset.
I think you'd make the deck a bit more reliable if you added in a playset of Delver of Secrets Flip. Stormchaser Mage and Monastery Swiftspear would be awesome as well, but then the deck would shift away from that spellslinger type of deck, making the Drake and the Chimera weaker.

Creatures: Waaaayyyy too many expensive creatures for modern. Glen Elendra Archmage? One, maybe, in the sideboard. Mainboard is only for faeries deck. Identity Thief Interesting card, but... again... costs 4 mana. And it's answered perfectly by Lightning Bolt. Jori En, Ruin Diver could actually be interesting in modern, but probably requires cheaper spells, to ensure that you trigger his ability every turn. With enough cheap burn (and cheap is Lightning Bolt, Lava Spike, and the like) you could get a weird draw-burn with Sygg, River Cutthroat. Fogwalkers ETB-ability could be ok, but it's ruined by the creature dealing very little damage when attacking. Dominus of Fealty costs 5 mana, and you have no way of ramping or making the game go long enough for you to reliably play 5 lands - and then it does nothing until your next upkeep. Powerful ability, though.
Spells: Mindswipe x-cost spells have never really become popular outside ramp-decks. The occasional Bonfire of the Damned, maybe, but otherwise not. In this case, you don't really get a burn spell, and up to 5 mana, Mana Leak is a better counterspell. Also, if you want to go with a prowess-like strategy, counterspells are a bit of a no-go.Izzet Charm and Turn//Burn are a bit of the same - it seems like you want both a burn and utility/counter-spell, and ends up paying overprice for any of them. It's not quite a Lightning Bolt, or quite a Mana Leak, or quite anything else.
Some of the cards suggested by are a little on the pricey side for a deck with a "budget" tag, but a lot of suggestions are good: Young Pyromancer, Vapor Snag, Gut Shot and Remand are great and cheap cards for this deck-type (that is: decks that use creatures with abilities that relate to instants and sorceries), just to mention a few.

This thing is still awesome. I played a game against two randoms, one was a Narset too, but twice as expensive as this one.
I won on turn 4 - turn 2 Chromatic Lantern and Sol Ring into turn 3 Narset, Enlightened Master into turn 4 trigger: Armageddon + Izzet Charm + Temporal Mastery cast from hand. The Mastery got countered because I played the cards in the wrong order, but they still scooped.
I checked the cards in Amonkhet and I don't see anything that would be good in this deck, but maybe you see something I don't.

Hey friend, love the deck idea. I read that you wanted to make this list more competitive? If that's the case, I'd make several changes:
-4 Excavators, -4 Raptors, -4 Aqueous Form. Those are the least relevant cards for your win conditions, and so they're the best place to look for more slots.
Then, I'd highly consider putting some Red in this deck. There are two reasons for this. the first is removal: you'd have access to Izzet Charm, Lightning Bolt, Ancient Grudge, and so forth, which will fill the weaknesses of UG. The second reason is Reckless Bushwhacker, who will give your Wolf Allies haste for an insta-win (and thereby circumvent any board wipes or pillow fort).
Hope this helps! Best of luck, and mention me if I can clarify or otherwise be helpful. Cheers!

I think the only tutor for noncreature artifacts from deck to grave is Entomb, which I don't think is within your budget. There's also Buried Alive, but it works with only artifact creatures. Also potentially Gamble.
Hope this helps!

i see you're tryin to keep this budget, so ill keep my suggestions in line with that. out of budget tho, i would HIGHLY recommend you pick up 4 copies of Remand. the card is just bonkers good. and still in line with Darth_Savage's advice, Mana Leak and Spell Pierce are cards you should definitely be looking at. they're super easy to find, too.
Now for some jank control cards =D Kiln Fiend > Mercurial Geists. Clout of the Dominus would run really well with your creature package. and speaking of creatures, i always found Satyr Firedancer to be less than ideal in most situations. same with Thermo-Alchemist. if you added clout, i'd also recommend Riverfall Mimic. Izzet Charm is decent, and Desolate Lighthouse can put in some work for longer games. I also once ran Quiet Contemplation in a budget control deck, and it worked pretty good.

Has anyone tried making a case of trading Mana Leak for Rune Snag yet?
If a full set of either are being considered, in a deck that has any sort of discard (which you run Izzet Charm and Bedlam Reveler) and/or doesn't run Snapcaster, I feel it's a better choice. While the first spell of each game is effectively worse than Mana Leak, every other time it's cast that game it's effectively better (and is a much better sight to see when drawing it late game).

one such inclusion I would like to have is Barbed Shocker since its cycle on damage, Not just combat damage. So a nice Warstorm Surge is helpful in the deck for some immediate burn and discard. Archaeomancer is another one I would like since I will have spells that are very helpful for those pesky decks that think they can counter my things, such as Disallow and Overwhelming Denial and of course a Izzet Charm and Dimir Charm couldn't hurt either, but I can easily replace them.
Thank you all for the support everyone!
