Thanks for the comment multimedia!

I agree, the prices on duals are ridiculous. The maybeboard for this deck is really just the "If this deck is my forever deck, buy these eventually" cards. Hence the hefty price tag. LOL.

I like Intruder Alarm a lot! Thanks for the suggestion!

As far as the wizards you suggest go, I really like Sedraxis Alchemist. He was definitely an oversight when I built the deck. I will try and make room for him! I originally didn't like Glen Elendra Archmage on paper when I was crafting the original copy of this deck. After playing this a few times now, I can definitely see her in this deck. I may snag a copy and play test her. Do you have experience with Vendilion Clique in multiplayer EDH? It does not feel like he would do enough with multiple opponents. I could be convinced though. He is one of my favorite cards in Modern. I could definitely see pulling out Izzet Chronarch and possibly see pulling out Stonybrook Banneret, but so far in my plays with this deck, Havengul Lich has been an all-star. Being able to recast Dualcaster Mage has won me so many games.

I really like your suggestions for more flash enablers. I have noticed that I need more ways to play at instant speed. Winding Canyons was definitely an oversight and will definitely be making its way in the deck. I am not completely sold on Leyline of Anticipation, but I might also snag a copy and see how it performs!

Thanks again for all of your suggestions!

Hey, very nice, +1. I agree with all the Notable Excludes, good info.

The maybeboard of eight cards is more money than the entire deck, haha. Prices on original duals are so ridiculous.

I would replace Copy Artifact with Intruder Alarm. Copying a Sol or Lotus can be good, but Alarm can win the game or extremely disrupt you're opponents. It has more synergy with Wizards and is very good with Inalla, Azami and Colossus.

Three Wizards I recommend you add are Vendilion Clique, Glen Elendra Archmage and Sedraxis Alchemist. Wizards who can be cut for them are Havengul Lich, Izzet Chronarch and Stonybrook Banneret.

With the way you're built the deck I think the direction you should consider expanding on is flash with Wizards. Teferi already gives this ability, but you could add more cards such as Leyline of Anticipation and Winding Canyons.

Good luck with your deck.

I forgot to mention, between low block potential and very high cmc, all 3 bolas cards are too slow and only really get one activation for soo much mana

But what ive noticed as i put money into the deck is it does best when played like storm, casting rocks and rituals and a pain spell and then chaining wheels for spike damage, the cumulative upkeep stuff is rather slow and really draws hate from opponents before you can kill them, and you are forcefeeding draw but you dont necessarily want them to use the cards you let them draw,

Price of Knowledge is ok, but in order to achieve the speed for storm, its really hard on the mama base, the only card above 6 cmc i run in mine is Kozilek, Butcher of Truth or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, and i never cast them they're only as a more useful Library of Leng

On top of being able to chain wheels after sticking a 1-4 cmc pain enchantment like Liliana's Caress Underworld Dreams or a discard/draw/combo engine 4-6 cmc like Dream Halls, Waste Not Rhystic Study, playing dimir colors means you have access to the best tutors for wheels and graveyard recursion, ive found that filling my graveyard by discarding wheels as a massive secondary hand and then either resetting the mill with the eldrazi titan while milling opponents out often removes the need for Library of Leng, but its a good card to learn the deck in the sense it teaches you what you want to keep or discard during wheels, plus if you have 50 cards in graveyard casting a Yawgmoth's Will or Mizzix's Mastery usually wins me the game with either 300-500 burst damage or decking opponents

Theres plenty of budget ways to recast wheels and other important spells from the graveyard you usually can fill up relatively fast

Magus of the Will

Past in Flames

Mizzix's Mastery

Archeomancer

Izzet Chronarch

Pull from the Deep

Call to Mind

Mystic Retrieval

Dralnu, Lich Lord

Non budget versions would be

Yawgmoth's Will

Snapcaster Mage

Kess, Dissident Mage

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip (-2 flip is another snapcaster)

Tutors really help you with getting the enchantments, protection or wheels you need to gain the lead, ill start with budget

Trinket Mage

Treasure Mage

Merchant Scroll

Gamble

Beseech the Queen

Increasing Ambition

Dark Petition

Diabolic Tutor

Diabolic Revelation

Fabricate

Lim-Dul's Vault

Brainstorm

Ponder

Better but more expensive options

Sensei's Divining Top and Scroll Rack to manipulate draws

Vampiric Tutor

Demonic Tutor

Entomb

Mystical Tutor

Personal Tutor

Looking to build Kess when she comes out and I want to run creatures that on ETB either return spells to be used again or return my other creatures to play. I'm focusing on ETBs and would like help filling in the holes.

Ive got a couple on hand already:Anarchist, Charmbreaker Devils, Mnemonic Wall, Nucklavee , and Phyrexian Delver. Additionally I'll be getting Havengul Lich, bloodline necromaner, Archaeomancer and Izzet Chronarch in the wizard deck. But is there anything else I'm missing?

UpperDeckerTaco Land Tax is a card I've been seriously thinking about, and same with card's like Exploration and Burgeoning. My deck runs a loooooot of ramp, and land tax seems like it may not do a whole lot if i'm always ahead of curve. My fear is that their usefulness will fall rather short because of my tendency to ramp into a child on turn 4 or 5 followed instantly with sacrificing child to clear the board and discourage my opponents from winning. And those cards are extremely powerful early game. It's something I will have to test and see how effective it is versus a sorcery like Explore or Urban Evolution which i can very easily recur with Archaeomancer,Izzet Chronarch,Mnemonic Wall. But Eternal Witness and Noxious Revival can grab anything. So I think it is something that will just come down to testing.

hi :)

thanks for your Feedback and your great suggestions. let me come down to them step by step:

  • Burn from Within: i play it over Banefire cause the "creature looses indestructible" and the "Exile" effect got me better Advantage in many situations.

  • Reality Shift is a great Card i hadnt on my Radar. i will try to get my Hands on it.

  • Wild Ricochet would fit in this type of deck. only reason i dont play it is that i dont own one currently

  • Fellwar Stone and Star Compass are great. i play my copies of Stones in my other EDH-decks currently. Darksteel Ingot is great for me as my playgroup Plays a lot of artifact hate including board wipes. same reason why i play those mana rocks that can net me a Card. to be honest, a Izzet Cluestone draws me a Card in about 2 games out of 10 - mostly because i have other insane draw engines online.

  • Hypersonic Dragon is nice to have but maybe slotted out in future. maybe for the new god from Hour of Devastation. we will see :)

  • Izzet Chronarch is ok and helps getting my Little Fox online. i love the multicoloured flavor :) of course it could be changed to lower the curve.

  • Desolate Lighthouse is not necessary in here. first i like to avoid colorless mana as much as possible, second this deck offers so much Card Advantage that we dont Need this effect, third in multiplayer you will always hit something with Cards like Pyroblast :)

  • Grixis Panorama: i didnt know that this Card exists.. i like it. Terramorphic Expanse can be included as well. i just didnt cause i dont have any copies left currently.

  • Lightning Greaves: i dont have a copie of them. i would Slot them in

  • Turnabout: i love Combos and i will try to get some around this Card and Reset in here. thats a future Goal of this deck.

i will soon have a look at your list, study it and will give ya a Feedback! go izzets! :)

I really like your list! I have an Izzet deck I'm working on as well and if you can spare a look I'd appreciate it, Jori En, Diving on a Budget

So for your deck,

Is Burn from Within worth it? If you're trying to kill players and whatnot is Banefire better?

Maybe Incinerate could be swapped for Reality Shift?

Could Wild Ricochet have a place in here?

Fellwar Stone and Star Compass might be better than some of the three mana rocks, especially Darksteel Ingot. How often do you crack Izzet Cluestone to draw a card? In an average 10 game stretch?

Izzet Chronarch could be Archaeomancer if you want to lower the curve. The multicolor might matter if you get Crackleburr going but still seems good.

you have 7 sorcery spells you're giving flash with Hypersonic Dragon, is it still worth it?

Desolate Lighthouse helps turn situational cards into new stuff, like if you're playing a green opponent with Pyroblast in hand.

Grixis Panorama and Terramorphic Expanse are fetch lands that are easy on the budget

how has Mana Flare preformed for you? doubling mana for your opponents seems risky, but i would like to hear your expirence with it

Is Lightning Greaves better than Swiftfoot Boots for you? or do you not like the shroud?

I see in your maybeboard you're considering Turnabout, FYI that card combos pretty hard with Nivix Guildmage if you want to go that route.
