Ral, Izzet Viceroy Discussion

Senomar on Bolas Wills It

Hello my friend ! Really nice deck ! The only suggestion I would make is cutting Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker . The CCM is way to high and this card is 99% a dead card in hand in the format. Furthermore you already have quiet some kills in your deck (especially your commander).

You can cut it for Force of Will , Force of Negation , Negate or even the Snapcaster Mage you're talking about in the description :)

I'm not that sure about Languish too since it kills all the creatures you have in the deck and your commander. Fiery Confluence or Radiant Flames seems much appropriated if you want to keep the same amount of wrath.

Ral, Izzet Viceroy seems a bit slow for the format too, you named it, Liliana, the Last Hope would be better

Considering your game plan running 42 lands with Maze of Ith + Wasteland (2 stapples for control decks) could be great. It's a matter of taste :)

Counterspell in 3 colors is strong but not that good. Go for the Throat or Tainted Pact could be better. Once again it's a matter of taste !

I'm far from beeing a pro player so these are more an opinions rather than advices ! Have a nice day !

I like the design space offered by this inclusion from war of the spark. It creates a greater range of diversified walkers. We just lost Gideon for the foreseeable future for being a more combat oriented planeswalker/creature hybrid. I wouldn’t want to limit wizards in terms of creative design space by saying “three abilities mandatory, no extra ones either”.

Compared to the previous group of walker design space that have nearly been pushed to Ad Nauseam . I personally don’t want more of the same thing as the basic: Five mana casting cost, +1 card advantage, -3 kill something, -8 ult and win, flavored to whatever color they are in walkers. Ob Nixilis Reignited , Ral, Izzet Viceroy , Teferi, Hero of Dominaria , Vivien Reid etc. This design space has been filled, do something new.

I was playing a mono blue artifact/token deck revolving around Sai, Master Thopterist and Sigiled Sword of Valeron .. my opponent was playing an izzet control deck using Crackling Drake and super friends Jaya Ballard and Ral, Izzet Viceroy .... the game dragged on and on and on.... he had me beat soundly by T10ish probably yet he just kept dragging it out and filling his graveyards to I guess one shot me with is drake.... but as it turned out he ran out of cards.... so I won in the end but i know i didn't really win.

Here's what I would do:

Cut Darksteel Ingot , Magnifying Glass , Mycosynth Wellspring , Ral, Izzet Viceroy and a Mountain .

You already have a ton of strong artifact mana, plus your commander has a kind of ramp tacked onto it, you can afford to cut your weaker mana rocks and still consistently have plenty of mana. Ral is a nice card, but you barely have many instants and sorceries in this list, so you can't make exceptional use of him. Lastly, I think you can afford to play at 36 lands; you'll still be running thirteen ramp sources (not counting Saheeli herself or Voltaic Key).

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
