Ral, Izzet Viceroy Discussion

I’m totally going to try this with a little different spell mixture.

I think Beacon Bolt is going to be the MVP removal card in this deck. Between the 4 shocks and opts, it should be able get the deck off the ground. Then later you can mill yourself a few times and fill your graveyard to kill any big targets or find more beacon bolts to jump start.

Ral, Izzet Viceroy should probably find a place in this deck. He does pretty much everything you want this deck to do, but all in one card! Plus it’s an extra win condition.

A card that is probably too greedy but would be awesome is Hypothesizzle . Especially with Goblin Electromancer on the field, could be bonkers.

Since your deck revolves around winning with drakes, i suggest adding proctection to keep your drakes alive, more draw to find drakes and make em big, and a 4th creature so you don't lose to 2x ixalan's binding or alot of creature removal :)

protection = Dive Down / Counterspells ( Negate or Spell Pierce

more draw = Tormenting Voice , Radical Idea , Discovery / Dispersal

4th Creature = Either Pteramander or Arclight Phoenix

Firemind's Research is too slow for this deck, i suggest more draw

Ral, Izzet Viceroy is hard to defend in this deck should really be a sideboard card, and even then i think Niv-Mizzet, Parun tops it.

Once people see Risk Factor , they'll always take the damage considering your finishers (drakes)) will kill them off anyways, i suggest replacing with more draw or a 4th creature

Hey, Ral, Izzet Viceroy is not legal as Commander in EDH. If you just want to play with your brother it is propably fine though. In EDH planeswalker must have the clause: "... can be your commander." on it. Examples: Lord Windgrace , Will Kenrith , Rowan Kenrith , Saheeli, the Gifted

I would cut Fevered Visions , without enough other life taxing effects it will probably just help your opponents answer your combos.

The tap lands are all pretty bad in this kind of deck. I would suggest cards like Spirebluff Canal , Cascade Bluffs , Ash Barrens , Shivan Reef , and maybe Exotic Orchard if you have other UR decks in your meta.

Ral, Izzet Viceroy will often get killed. If you really like him, then keep him, but I do not like him here.

I think that Ruby Medallion and Sapphire Medallion would be interesting here for extra value.

I second Primal Amulet  Flip.

I would cut Sky Diamond , Fire Diamond and Dreamscape Artist . They are either slow or do not actually fix you.

Hey Rushhy,

Great deck! As a suggestion, I think that you may add 4 Nexus of Fate to the mainboard to play this deck like a bent nexus deck: Wilderness Reclamation remplaces the Teferi, Hero of Dominaria first ability, and the best finisher for this idea is the Ral, Izzet Viceroy emblem. If you like this idea you may add any Root Snare appart of your counters.

Oops, Kaya's Protection has this activated ability:

, Sacrifice Kaya's Protection: Each opponent loses life equal to the number of pain counters on Kaya's Protection.

Geez, that's both a flavor-fail, and a broken ability.

Make a pair of cards for the Izzet fight between Niv-Mizzet, Parun , and Ral, Izzet Viceroy .

Why no Ral, Izzet Viceroy? You have 24 Instants/Sorceries, so I believe the Ultimate would be effective, and the +1 to smooth out your draws would be great! Also, I suggest Search for Azcanta  Flip for the smoothing Of draws as well. Otherwise, +1!

I'm pretty sure I heard this somewhere, so correct me if I'm wrong.

Isn't the legendary creature under the Planeswalker for the guild kind of against them? Like Niv-Mizzet, Parun is against Ral, Izzet Viceroy.

Not sure if this is right, but if Ruric Thar is against Domri then we will still likely see him.
