Izzet Signet Discussion
3 days ago
you are right about jace but the flash of snapy saved me many times. I tried a Kalitas list before and it was pretty good. I didn't keep it because i wanted more classic control spells on the deck. My idea was to play T4 spells on T3 beacause casting a Kalitas on T4 against fast aggro decks maybe could save the match. So i made a list with Talisman of Dominance Talisman of Indulgence Dimir Signet and Izzet Signet. With that combination i was able to cast Damnation Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet and Cryptic Command on T3 saving the day against heavy creature decks and burn. If any1 interested i could post the list here.

Izzet Signet fixes and ramps mana and is an artifact.
Psychosis Crawler lets you take advantage of all of your card draw, slugging opponents and getting huge in the process.
Solemn Simulacrum is a staple EDH card that ramps and gives card advantage when it dies.
Foundry Inspector makes your artifact spells cheaper, which is really useful to trigger Jori En's ability by playing multiple artifacts in a turn.
Phyrexian Metamorph is an excellent Clone variant that stays an artifact regardless of what it is copying.
Torrential Gearhulk has a hefty pricetag, but it is another way to cast two spells off a single card, and potentially during an opponent's turn.

I too broke down today and bought a box. My pulls include:
Past in Flames
2x Path to Exile
2x Inquisition of Kozilek
The rest consists of a lot of 50 cent foils and $1-2 rares.....I was hoping for a more epic pull like Tarmogoyf or Liliana of the Veil, but I never seem to get that lucky. It was fun to actually open a big set like this though.

Commander is a format where ramp is very important. Cards like Sol Ring, Gruul Signet, Simic Signet, Izzet Signet, Chromatic Lantern, Sakura-Tribe Elder and Birds of Paradise will make the deck much more explosive. I would also suggest an Urabrask the Hidden for when you Primal Surge so your entire board has haste, otherwise you can kill 1 person then die.
Basically you should add more ramp because your deck is very high curve with no card draw or ramp. I don't really know where to start though. Look at your cards, I feel like a lot of them don't further your plan at all.
I understand it's to counter his deck, but it just seems so slow without ramp. Anyway, good luck.

Why no Epic Experiment? In a deck loaded with as many instants and sorceries as this, it finishes games, or at least always promises massive amounts of value.
Jace's Sanctum makes casting your spells cheaper, and you can scry away your topdeck for Melek if necessary.
Sphinx-Bone Wand helps burn away opponents faster, or functions as repeatable removal.
Reverberate is a powerful tool that gives you extra value, or counters an opponent's counterspell.
Ponder is a cantrip that fixes your topdeck; absolutely essential with Melek.
Izzet Signet ramps and fixes your mana. You are currently running zero mana rocks, which I think is a huge mistake.
Mystic Retrieval gives you insane value off a topdeck with Melek, and even more when you flashback it. You can't get much more value out of a single card.
Rite of Replication is an alternative wincon if you absolutely need creatures to win; say an opponent has hexproof and you can no longer burn them to death. You're going to need to find another way, and in a format swarming with gigantic value creatures, Replication is the way to go. Also a kicked Replication off the top sounds insane.
Mystical Tutor is your Demonic Tutor variant this deck desperately needs. Grabs whatever you need to stabilize, remove, counter, or straight-up win. Did I mention it also immediately puts the card on top for synergy with your commander?
Fact or Fiction is an incredible value card that often effectively draws you three cards at instant speed.
Mizzix's Mastery will finish games for you. After a long hard-fought EDH game, your graveyard will be full of instants and sorceries, all ready to copy and blast your opponents into dust.
Past in Flames is similar to Mizzix's Mastery, except you can choose which spells you want to cast, and Past in Flames itself has flashback.
In order to make this a competitive creatureless EDH deck, I strongly recommend the above suggestions, and including some more mana rocks to pay for the more expensive spells. If you're finding that you're continuing to lose games without getting these value cards, I suggest using creatures to supplement until you can acquire them.

I'm more of the Voltron stryle of Thraximundar deck, but if you are taking this way, I'd sugest more ramp. Your deck has a lot of fatties and green deck will just overrun you if you don't go fast. Play all the CMC 2 artifacts: Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet, Izzet Signet, Talisman of Dominance, Talisman of Indulgence, Mind Stone, Thought Vessel. Take out the Cluestones for them. Also, Rooftop Storm is a must. Cast your commander for free!! (well, aditional commander tax must be paid, but still you are playing your commander for 2, 4, 6...).
Another card that may be of your interest is It That Betrays (dude, that card was $15 and now is almost bulk price).
Your land base may need some work too, but that is when it starts to hurt the wallet.
