This is my Melek, Izzet Paragon deck. It's basically chaos but with some control and extra turn stuff in it. I always love second opinions on my decks so please let me know if anything should be changed or if I miss a key piece. Thanks in advance.

I have some zombies with Unearth from another deck but I don't want to look for creatures for this one, since they mostly costs to cast or Unearth (Unearth doesn't trigger Burning Vengeance by the way).

For creatures, I already tried Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius, Melek, Izzet Paragon, 4x Firewing Phoenixes, 4x Fettergeists, 1x Guttersnipe

For non-creature spells, I've tried Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded, 2x Dismember, 1x Traumatize, 2x Boomerangs, 4x Jace's Erasure (terrible idea), 2x Seething Songs... That's all, as far as I can remember!

I'm sorry, how exactly did Xira Arien get bumped down to Tier 3? She is definitely better than Teysa, Orzhov Scion, Melek, Izzet Paragon, Anafenza, the Foremost, etc. Jund storm is a viable strategy and she's one of the best to helm it alongside Prossh

Since your finishers depend on how many instant and sorceries you have on your graveyard i would run Cathartic Reunion and Contingency Plan as my card draw to help fill the graveyard. Epic Experiment is super fun and i would totally try to fit 1 or 2 on the deck.

If you don't expect to play against lots of Lightning Bolts consider Spellheart Chimera as another payoff creature.

Melek, Izzet Paragon can be really good if left unchecked, you should try it out.

Love the deck idea- I myself have always wanted to build an Izzet spellslingers deck.

My main advice would be to cut Melek, Izzet Paragon and Epic Experiment. these are both only good if you have a lot of mana, which izzet isn't really known for. You want to be able to cast most things in your hand, and fairly quickly too. Maybe some more card draw effects, like Serum Visions? Or you could just run Delver of Secrets  Flip for a more aggro, low-to-the-ground build.

Sensei's Divining Top will do nicely with Galvanoth and Melek, Izzet Paragon; or maybe Crystal Ball, Eyes of the Watcher and/or Jace's Sanctum as low cost alternatives.

Ayyyyye this is dope, love it. Hello fellow Izzet Mages and Glory to the Firemind!

Cant have the Izzet League without the Firemind himself, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and gotta have the guild champion Melek, Izzet Paragon.

Delver of Secrets  Flip, Young Pyromancer, and Lightning Bolt are usually auto includes in 80% of my decks.

And a personal favorite of mine, Hypersonic Dragon! Also I foresee this deck being very large so a good tutor could help, Firemind's Foresight.

You could add Ponder, Preordain Serum Visions or Anticipate. Then for some burn you could add Lightning Bolt ,Lightning Strike ,Chain Lightning , Lava Spike , Earthquake, etc. Their is a lot of cheap burn spells.Now as for what you could take out.Maybe taking Melek, Izzet Paragon and Sphinx's Tutelage is a good idea. That is unless they are putting in the work for you. To answer your Tainted Strike question, i'm pretty sure you can keep on casting it on 1 creature, but infect is a keyword so it gets infect once and every time you recast Tainted Strike the infect becomes redundant on that 1 creature. That goes for any pump spell with a keyword attached to it. I think the next route you might wanna go to is bettering your already good mana base with more fetch lands.yes, You can use fetch lands that could get you a color that isn't in your deck. For example you could use Marsh Flats even though you can't get any white lands. I would ask your playgroup if that's ok with them first though.
