looks good. plus 1 from me

one thing ive been trying to get better at doing myself is taking out any lands that enter tapped with no upside. so less of a chance of hitting it early. i would suggest just switching Swiftwater Cliffs,Highland Lake & Izzet Guildgate to some basics.

If money is not a problem, (assuming it isn't because of the 4 Risk Factors), I would suggest switching out your 4 Izzet Guildgate copies for 4 copies of Sulfur Falls since it allows you to potentially drop your duel mana tap lands without paying the "enters tapped" tax of 1 turn.

Hey, you're welcome.

There's an Izzet Drake deck that's doing well in Standard. It features Enigma Drake and Crackling Drake who are both uncommons as well as Arclight Phoenix who is unfortunately a mythic rare. It's taking advantage of low mana cost instant and sorcery draw spells to pump up the Drakes quickly or reanimate Arclight: Opt, Chart a Course, Radical Idea, Discovery / Dispersal, Tormenting Voice. Consider adapting this deck for Arena?

Here's an example for Arena:

  • 4x Enigma
  • 4x Crackling
  • 1x Arclight (add more if able)
  • 1x Niv-Mizzet

Other Spells

  • 1x Firemind's
  • 4x Opt
  • 4x Chart
  • 2x Discovery
  • 3x Idea
  • 4x Shock
  • 2x Lava Coil
  • 1x Fight with Fire
  • 1x Banefire
  • 2x Negate
  • 1x Blink
  • 1x Rebuke

suggest Guttersnipe and/or Electrostatic Field as an alternative to the electromancer. I have been testing this on Arena and if I mull to the right hand, it's turn 4 exactsies (unless you swing with Adeliz on t3, then it's overkill by -2). Even without the Ghitu Lavarunner.

Turn 1, Izzet Guildgate. Turn 2, Beamsplitter Mage + Mountain . Turn 3 Guttersnipe + Island , and then turn 4 Mountain then Maximize Altitude (targeting BSMage), Jumpstart Altitude, Sure Strike for lethal. That's 3 spells cast (jumpstart triggers Guttersnipe), so 6 damage off triggers, then double altitude makes each creature 4/4, then sure strike makes them 7/4. It's so elegant.

You can get 20dmg the same way with adeliz, because each inst/sorc with adeliz creates 2 extra combat damage (if you have Adeliz and BSMage). With my list, longer games can be tougher, but overall it's a winning list. I'm trying yours today (with Sinister Sabotage + Wizard's Lightning because I don't have any Ionize. Spell Pierce or Negate might also be options, because the counters really just protect our attackers from Seal Away or Settle the Wreckage. In those games, though, guttersnipe helps in the long run, especially against Turbo Fog!

The deck looks good - slight worry that it may take a while before you get an attack going.

Risk Factor may just be quicker than Search for Azcanta  Flip, and maybe a couple of Goblin Electromancer and Izzet Guildgate

You misunderstand. What I intended was, by showing the similar structure of your Izzet and my Jeskai, that I really like the deck you have. I applaud you for including Niv-Mizzet, Parun, as I disagree tith WoTC that he will never see play in the Standard Format. I am curious, however, about your land choice in the Izzet Guildgates. Why not something to help Niv, like Guildmage's Forum?

Awesome! You didn't have a problem hitting all your lands without Izzet Guildgate then? Cool...maybe I'll take those out of mine as well.

Yeah, I playtested this against my own R/B Controlled Burn deck and it whopped me both times. Great combination of Electrostatic Field and Guttersnipe coupled with the burn and counter spells. Izzet Guildgate might save you some money in place of the Steam Vents. Good hunting!
