Had a browse and found some things that might be worth a look at Bonesplitter, Brute Force, Nivmagus Elemental, Genju of the Spires, Dynacharge, Vexing Devil or more shocks Tarfire

If you're going to be setting you deck's focus on Nivmagus Elemental, i'd run 4 of them. I would also limit what spells you have to a specific few, and not a bunch of spells but with only one of them. Some suggestions from the top of my head would be Cyclonic Rift, Lightning Bolt, Counterspell.

As for you mana, just get rid of Izzet Boilerworks. It greatly slows down your deck. If you're keeping this on budget, I would replace them with Sulfur Falls.

Also if it's more than 4 mana, I personally wouldn't run it unless it's 100% key to your combo.

It plays just like a control deck with mass card draw from Sky Hussar. Win cons include but not limited to. Early game beats with Nivmagus Elemental and various other early flyers. Late game uptick AetherVial to 5 and have a 4/3 flyer. I think the description update will let everyone see the appeal to this deck.

I'd take out the Phantom Warriors since they're not worth much unless you're pumping them up. Put in a 1 drop creature like Nivmagus Elemental or Blistercoil Weird. There are better options, but they're more expensive.

You've got too many lands as well for your average cmc. I'd take out at least 2, if not 3 and put in some card draw options like Divination.

I definitely agree with the Nivmagus Elemental. The other cards unfortunately too expensive CMC wise for the deck. I am trying to keep the curve as low a possible so I can go off with only one or two mana producing dudes.

Needs more Dovescape -- think about it -- the original spell targeting Ink Treader is countered, but not any of the others (that are not cast) :P

Nivmagus Elemental is a definite include!!! You can exile a huge amount of copied spells and control exactly which creatures are the target of spells. And the elemental gets huge

You have the right idea with stapled can-trips -- but what to do to further take advantage of them?

Some options:

Kraljina101 - Well, the thing is, sometimes you don't have the combo. You just don't. So Research lets you have some game against other decks by getting general hate cards. Also, if you fear you might fizzle, reloading a 20-30 library with hate goodies works rather well.

I run Breeding Pool because having six lands that can cast Manamorphose is HUGE. They've saved my ass more than once in dire straits.

Also, Pyroclasm hits my guys, though Ground Rift is interesting. I would think to run that in a Nivmagus Elemental deck, however. Which I might be working on soon (hint hint). Beast Within is an all-star, from the abusive things I've done with it. It blows up Goblin Charbelcher, it makes an extra whatever into a beast, among other things. I also have a fair matchup against Affinity, since I am, quite simply, WAY faster. I certainly understand your concerns, but rest assured, I have chosen these cards with care. Price
