Ral, Izzet Viceroy Discussion

TristanTaylorsVoice Ral, Izzet Viceroy is definitely slower, it is just for grindier match ups. He can kill a lot of eldrazi that are running around with his minus which is nice right now. I might want to cut down on a [Magmatic Sinkhole] to add another The Royal Scions to help loot through my deck but Ral is actually very helpful.

match_lighter I haven't tried Entrancing Melody in a while so I will try it out here soon but I like Ral in the main or the side.

The Royal Scions seems like a great way to ensure Awoken Horror is a 2hko or turning Snapcaster Mage into an actual clock, while Ral, Izzet Viceroy seems too slow. I would either play a second The Royal Scions instead or an additional threat to close games such as a single Torrential Gearhulk . Note that The Royal Scions ultimate also actually attempts to close the game!

I don't believe Ral, Izzet Viceroy is pulling his weight, the worse you could do is replace it with another Remand . You might consider upping the number of Archmage's Charm to a full playset, or adding a single Ionize . A card that has proven quite powerful to me in izzet builds has been Entrancing Melody , although you already have Archmage's Charm the ability to scale with the game can come in handy.

Your deck plays real smooth, continue brewing!

Looks cool! Do you think Ral, Izzet Viceroy would be playable?

Firstly, a little disappointed there are no walls in this list for flavor.

Secondly, maybe consider adding another win condition to close out games. Maybe a Ral, Izzet Viceroy or Niv-Mizzet, Parun at the top end or Thing in the Ice  Flip as relatively safe win conditions in your colours.

The list looks solid.

I have a thread that you can post this on if you are looking for help with it called Quick, Thoughtful Deck help. As for my own suggestions, I see 15 Instants and 3 Sorceries. A certain card, Arclight Phoenix , seems like a very good choice for your deck as it makes the discards from your Thrills and Scions less awkward. Also, consider taking out the one copy of Ionize and Electrodominance for two copies of either Ral, Izzet Viceroy , Jace's Projection , or even a card like Bag of Holding . Ral can deal with the opponent’s big threats while also letting you filter through your deck, Jace’s Projection can get pretty out of hand with extreme card draw, and Bag keeps your discarded spells able to be returned to you. As for any other advice, Niv-Mizzet, Parun seems pretty okay in here, and Mystic Sanctuary to get back some of your spells doesn’t seem half bad either.

Nice and I agree Sevinne, the Chronoclasm is highly underrated!

I built mine to combo with Ral, Storm Conduit and Increasing Vengeance which also triggers Sevinne, the Chronoclasm to go infinite with the assumption another instant or sorcery is on the stack similar to the Ral, Storm Conduit , Expansion / Explosion combo.

My other strategies include wheeling instants and sorceries into my graveyard and taking advantage of it with Ral, Izzet Viceroy for removal or the ultimate to finish up the game. Rise from the Tides also finds this strategy to be very useful.

One card that stands out for me as a tutor is Wild Research it's brilliant to go find Pariah or Propaganda with. We can also tutor for Sevinne's Reclamation if we are unlucky enough to discard one of these enchantments.

I like all your other considerations and will definitely include some of them in my own build.

I´ve build a similar deck now in MtGArena and I would recommend to drop the Niv-Mizzet, Parun s for 2x Ral, Izzet Viceroy . In times I had the mana for Niv I didnt really needed him and at 5 mana Ral often turned the tables. Got around the right amount of Instants and Sorceries to remove minor - large threats such as Omnath, Locus of the Roil or Questing Beast . And I was totally blind about the damage possibilities of The Royal Scions . Want to try 4 copies of them.
