Izzet Guildgate Discussion

landofMordor on Jeskai control on a budget

1 week ago

Okay! Thing in the Ice  Flip we can work with. With Thing, you'll want a lot of cheap instants (and sorceries, if you must) to achieve a flip as fast as possible, then smash face for the win.

First, I'd suggest Spell Pierce, Dispel, Ephemeral Shields, and/or Turn Aside, all of which will be vital for protecting Thing from opposing removal. Then, I'd use Temur Battle Rage or Assault Strobe as a win condition (after Thing is flipped), since your opponent will likely already be within killing range from their shocks and fetches. Cantrips like Niveous Wisps, Ponder, etc will be pretty good to you, as will multiple-use spells like Faithless Looting, Think Twice, and so forth. If I were you, I actually might be tempted to take out all W except just a splash, if Thing is your main win con. Although I guess at this point, your deck becomes aggro...

If you care about the control part of things, I'd trade your Ulamog for Emrakul, the Promised End (she's better with Nahiri) and dial up the W element of the deck, leaving R just as a splash for Nahiri and Helix. Azorius Charm, Failure / Comply, Hindering Light, Silence, Angelsong, Censor, will all be crucial in extending the game long enough to swing in multiple times with Thing and maybe even get Nahiri to ult.

Either way, I suggest only splashing your third color -- 4-6 spells of that color max. Then, I suggest you build your land base with all basics except for 4 Evolving Wilds and 4 of the tapland of your 2 primary colors (for RU, Izzet Guildgate or the like). Split the basics evenly between all remaining colors.

Hope that helps! Despite what some other posters seem to think, I strongly believe you'll be able to build a fun and effective 3-color deck on a budget, especially if your goal is casual fun. However, I do think that you might be frustrated if you have a mana-intensive deck on a shoestring budget, which is why I so strongly recommend just splashing one of your 3 colors. Mention me on your decklist once you get some cards smashed together -- even if it's not pretty, I'll do my best to help you out! Best of luck.

Do they have any additional value or are they simply effective fire starter? I have a Izzet Guildgate - Land-Gate(R/B) that I got for free in exchange for a delayed shipping time from an eBay seller, the top border is cut off down to the name, and is instead located at the bottom of the card

instead of Izzet Guildgate you could use Scalding Tarn to go looking for Steam Vents or Sulfur Falls.

+1 Upvote! Loving the feel of this deck! Two minor things I could suggest. Shore up that mana base. There a lot of better land cards out there over Izzet Guildgate which is pretty obvious XD. Depending on the match up Lava Spike could be a side board card. Flame Slash is really good for keeping the board clear, but if you're facing up against something that isn't creature heavy, it would be a good swap. This deck looks very solid for what it's doing!

BlaineTog on Land Assault!

With Lightning Storm instead of Seismic Assault and some taplands (Highland Lake, Swiftwater Cliffs, and Izzet Guildgate should do the trick) in place of 12 basic lands, this deck can actually hit a turn-3 kill: Turn 1 tapland, turn 2 Tower + Hunt, Turn 3 Mountain + Lightning Storm. This even allows the deck to play around counterspells by waiting for your opponent to tap out, and it maintains the super-low budget.

Panas on Budgetification help?

You should specify a budget then we can work the deck out.

Just a heads up, you reduce the price, usually the power goes down by some or much depending on your replacements. Cutting a Volcanic Island for Izzet Guildgate hurts less than cutting Demonic Tutor for Diabolic Tutor. Sort of... depends on which playgroup you are in, but I will guess a casual, semi-competitive environment?
