Izzet Staticaster Discussion

Empty the Warrens is basically the only thing I'm worried about out of storm. Apart from Thoughtseize and Izzet Staticaster it's extremely hard to interact with.

When I face storm, I use all my Thought Scours on my opponent (I side out delve creatures) and try to hit their warrens with it. Followed up by Surgical Extraction.

Regarding that: Surgical Extraction is about as superior to Extirpate as Gitaxian Probe is to Peek. There is really no contest. In a format where games are won on turn 4 (3 sometimes), which gives you 10cmc to work with FOR THE WHOLE GAME, 1cmc makes a huge difference!

Snap157 Grixis and Esper are good in diffrent ways. Grixis has Kolaghan's Command and Izzet Staticaster but I like Esper more becaus of Path to Exile and all the good cards for the sideboard. White has the best sideboard hate in Modern. I might try Opt in the near future as it's an instant.

As for cards I would add if the ban list was not there is pretty hard. There are so many cards that come in like Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Mental Misstep so it would probably turn into a control deck instead of an aggro/midrange deck.

Eiganjo Castle is a great way to protect your Geists from sweepers like Anger of the Gods while also allowing it to attack or block creatures without losing it.

With Opt over Serum Visions I think 2 Spell Snare could be excellent here since if you have both in hand on the draw you can keep up your blue mana for either one whereas before you had to choose between cantrip or leaving up a counter.

I also suggest 1 Desolate Lighthouse as a way to filter away bad draws late in the game.

Some sweepers in the side would be nice for "just in case" purposes Anger of the Gods, Supreme Verdict.

Izzet Staticaster is also excellent in the SB against small creature decks like Tokens and Elves.

Celestial Colonnade is a great win con as well.

Its hard to give suggestions on sideboards because every local meta is different but here are some general suggestions

Affinity-Wear, Smash to Smithereens, Shattering Spree, Hurkyl's Recall, Shatterstorm

Storm-Counterflux, Mindbreak Trap

Control-Negate, Dispel, Spell Pierce

Burn-Kor Firewalker, Timely Reinforcements

Eldrazi-Deflecting Palm

Valakut, Tron-Molten Rain

Devoted Druid, Tokens-Izzet Staticaster

Also, Opt may be better in your deck since its an instant and can protect your Exemplars

hm. I would suggest these cards:4x Basilisk Collar4x Curiosity4x Electrolyze2x Gelectrode4x Gorgon's Head9x Island4x Izzet Staticaster4x Lightning Bolt9x Mountain2x Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind4x Polymorphist's Jest4x Quietus Spike4x Scouring Sands4x Shivan ReefCuriosity and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind combo to deal infinite damage and niz mizzet is a pinger and a card draw engine and curiousity helps you draw cards, the problem with your deck is it needs ur opponents creatures to be small. I would suggest using my list if you can because it is actually reasomably competetive and tons of fun.

I would recommend throwing two copies of Runed Halo into sideboard, maybe take out Izzet Staticaster and Wear / Tear. Also remove Disdainful Stroke and up the count on Surgical Extraction and Supreme Verdict. It looks like between the planeswalkers and instants, especially with Snapcaster Mage, you have a good bit of removal and counters, if you're looking for two to cut I would cut Lightning Helix. Granted I don't play much red but these are my thoughts. good luck!

Hi, Lothen, I didnt have the opportunity to try the Affinity matchup yet, but its amongst my reasons for putting two maindeck Spell Snare. The sideboard plan would be something like -4 Ancestral Vision, -2 Go for the Throat, +1 Liliana, the Last Hope, +1 Engineered Explosives, +2 Ceremonious Rejection, +1 Damnation, +1 Collective Brutality.

Regarding Tron, Spreading Seas alone wouldnt be enough and after turn 2 I really wouldnt like to tap for it, also Bitterblossom is the ideal play for turn 2, so my plan of choice was even more counterspells after sideboard ( Ceremonious Rejection, Disdainful Stroke, Countersquall ) and the two Thoughtseize as well. The Vendilion and Mistbind Cliques can take care of the rest. Im actually more worried about the Eldrazi Tron matchup, but I played it last week and the sideboard seemed solid as far as I can tell.

The best uses of Pendelhaven I havent tested yet, namely blocking Lingering Souls tokens and surviving Izzet Staticaster, but its a flex slot. I could try Ghost Quarter later, but im not in love with the idea of playing just one (and the manabase could hardly afford two).

The discard spells I intend to try later in some number between 4 and 8, the current focus on counterspells is just the beginning of it. I am new to the archetype and there is a lot to experiment in it. :)

I like the deck concept, so +1 from me. Here are my suggestions.

  1. You may want to test playing Thought Scour over Opt, as while Opt lets you scry then draw, Thought scour gives you the graveyard cards you can use for Snapcaster Mage. Obviously some testing would be in order.

  2. The sideboard needs some serious work, Wear should have a place in the board since cards like Chalice of the Void, Ensnaring Bridge, etc. are all very real threats to aggressive decks like this one. Having played it, I know that Azorius Charm is honestly a terrible card, and that either more paths or counters would be more beneficial in it's place. You might also want to include something like Surgical Extraction, Blood Moon, or Stone Rain, but those are both meta dependent.

  3. Other more tempo based ideas are Spell Queller, Vendilion Clique, Izzet Staticaster, Logic Knot, and Aven Mindcensor. These are just ideas should you want them.
