I still think you have too many suboptimal cards. Lightning Bolt is a strict upgrade over Shock , Soul's Fire / Reckless Abandon is worse than Fling and Seething Song / Mark of Mutiny does nothing. Arc Runner is also terrible because it can be easily blocked and it becomes 3 mana do nothing.

A good rule to abide by is to make sure your deck does one thing well, and only that one thing. Your deck right now is a bit all over the place, and there is a glaring flaw where you have no real way to refill your hand. Your sideboard is also weak to White Weenie, which is a popular deck right now so Electrickery is compulsory. I also don't see a situation where Perilous Myr can be boarded in. As a rule, sideboard is where you run hate cards, and tech against hate.

Try to look up the Izzet Blitz list. You definitely need more card draw just in case your first barrage doesn't kill.

Cut: Soul's Fire , Shock , Arc Runner , Perilous Myr , Mark of Mutiny , Seething Song , Reckless Abandon , Sure Strike , 2x Fireblast , 2x Ghitu Lavarunner and Thermo-Alchemist

Run: 4x Lightning Bolt , 3x Temur Battle Rage , 3x Nivix Cyclops , 3x Kiln Fiend , 3x Gush , 2x Ponder , 2x Fling , 2x Opt , 2x Gitaxian Probe , 2x Mutagenic Growth

Consider also running some dual lands such as Swiftwater Cliffs . Cycle lands are a good idea but Lonely Sandbar is better than Desert of the Mindful .

Sideboard: 4x Apostle's Blessing , 3x Counterspell , 2x Dispel , 3x Electrickery , 3x Tormod's Crypt ,

Ah this type of deck takes me back to good times, my good friend used to play a pretty degenerate Shirei deck.

Here might be some cards you can consider using:

Hope that helps!

Kederekt Thank you for the suggestions, I will take them under consideration. I understand your logic regarding Howling Mine &Lodestone Myr and I must say that I am not entirely happy with Perilous Myr. However, I would replace Myr Matrix instead of Myr Turbine, since I've found it to be the weaker card. Especcially since Turbine + Myr Battlesphere fetches another Battlesphere. One can further discuss whether or not Genesis Chamber fits in the deck or if it ultimateley can be replaced with something better. The upside with Westvale Abbey  Flip is that it can transform puny little myrs into a flying demon with haste and lifelink, often winning the game.

What do you think, should one add green for Ancient Stirrings to get tron more reliably, or will that break the theme too much? The downside is also that it will probably mean the total exclusion of utility lands in favor of forests.

@clancheek Those sound like some good suggestions. Especially Perilous Myr. That extra damage might be what this deck needs.

Rather than Stitcher's Supplier and a whole bunch of Rally the Ancestors why not play Perilous Myr, Deathgreeter, Festering Mummy, Tenacious Dead, Doomed Dissenter, Relentless Dead, Gravecrawler, Bloodghast, or Dread Wanderer. These all allow for more of an "aristocrats strategy" rather than a reanimator-esque strategy. Repeatable affects or payoffs for sacrificing creatures is what you want in aristocrats. Stitcher's Supplier is better in decks like bridgevine or Dredge

Perilous Myr, Executioner's Capsule, or Ratchet Bomb might do some good work here.

Protean Hulk (or Boonweaver Giant + Pattern of Rebirth) + sac outlet = craziness.

  1. Sac one of the above creatures to get Karmic Guide. Bring the creature back;
  2. Sac the creature again to get Fiend Hunter, exile Karmic Guide, then sac Fiend Hunter to get Karmic Guide AND the creature back;
  3. Sac the creature once more to get Reveillark.

From now on, you have Karmic Guide and Reveillark together, so you can reanimate all creatures in your graveyard that have 2 or less power. By using Fiend Hunter to "flicker" Karmic Guide, as shown in step 2, you can keep cheating every single creature from your deck and graveyard into the battlefield and can sac them and bring them back at will. You can then use Acidic Slime to blow up all of your opponents' artifacts, enchantments and lands, use Fiend Hunter to exile their creatures permanently (sac the Hunter in response to the ETB trigger; the exile creature won't come back) or kill them with Inquisitor Exarch or Perilous Myr.
