Melek, Izzet Paragon Discussion

drunktank on Intet loves free stuff!!

I know this is basically a necrobump, but I saw this deck on the main page and had to check it out because I love Temur colors for EDH. I'm struggling to see where you're wanting to go with this deck. It seems all over the place. You have cards like Archaeomancer, Melek, Izzet Paragon, Wee Dragonauts, and others, but you only have 11 Instants and 2 Sorceries, of which the instants are just counter magic. Also Dispel, Force Spike, Turn Aside and Outwit are a little too situational for my tastes. If you need to be that heavy into countermagic for your meta, I would recommend Voidslime, Dissolve, Spell Crumple, or Scatter to the Winds. Those should all be pretty inexpensive. It also couldn't hurt to consider replacing some of your creature ramp with Rampant Growth, Kodama's Reach, and Cultivate. You should also absolutely pull two basic lands for Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds if you haven't already.

So far everyone has either mentioned a prison combo, or mass land destruction.

I have come across a new one which brings a LOT of hate, being Hive Mind + Warp World, or any other way to make multiple copies like Melek, Izzet Paragon or Swarm Intelligence. That usually resets the board fairly well.

Yeah, as in the description as soon as I saw him I wanted to build him. I knew people were using him for Superfriends but I am going with Atraxa for that build, Tribal but I have Scion, and a counters deck, and Charms. It just came down to making a different build than what I already had. As far as Chromanticore goes im going to see how an initial build goes, but I am looking into more ways to spend his 10 mana such as Debt to the Deathless.


We have someone in our playgroup who uses that in a Izzet Melek, Izzet Paragon stormish deck, and it got way out of control, fun, but so much time spent. As for mana ratios thats what I think I like the most about Chrams as it is. Mana fixing is imortant, but if you have that then its no problem. I didnt know about Reap What Is Sown or Evolutionary Escalation which im going to add. Fate Transfer is a possibility but with a low amount of creatures maybe not, i'll have to do some initial testing. I completely didnt think about hybrid mana, its funny you mention Crystallization considering I have one, which is gonna be added and looked into.

Now I just gotta do some cutting!

Melek, Izzet Paragon

At six mana, he's a bit unwieldy, he can be incredibly powerful.

Cards like Wild Guess and Cathartic Reunion become useful too. He does have a bit of an issue in that you REALLY have to cut down on the permanents you include in your deck, and he doesn't really work well with counterspells, but save that, he can do a ton of work.

Skovtrolden on Ramostly wanna cast spells

Green is an essential color (this was actually a Riku deck before Commander 2017 came out), as green give room for things like Forgotten Ancient, Oracle of Mul Daya, and the single best cantrip of the deck, Benefactor's Draught.

The upside about Ramos is that he costs no colors to play, so it's really easy to play him, and with the right mana fix (which commander have tons of), it's also easy to get all colors represented - plus Ramos got mega-prowess. If I should cut green, i would probably end up using Melek, Izzet Paragon as commander instead

I never took out Guttersnipe either, just changed the version i think?

Hyperalgialysis on Best Izzet Control commander?

Mizzix is probably the best, I like Jori En, Ruin Diver and Melek, Izzet Paragon. The former if you are casting multiple spells a turn, and the latter is great to get extra damage, cards etc.
