Stormchaser Mage Discussion

I made a deck very similar to this one, and was really underwhelmed by how it played. Archfiend was really good, but if you didn't drop him immediately you kinda just... lost. Shadow storm vizier felt like a strictly worse Stormchaser Mage, and faith of the devoted felt like a worse Zulaport Cutthroat. The deck works better with a control shell. Kill spells and counters make it fantastic

Super cool deck. +1 from me. Although it's hard to call it a prowess deck considering you don't have a single creature with the prowess keyword ability. Although a Stormchaser Mage would fix that :) Also, Cryptic Command, Smash to Smithereens, Tormod's Crypt, Anger of the Gods, Crumble to Dust, and Monastery Siege are a couple solid sideboard cards that come to mind.

I made a very similiar deck like this, and it was a lot of fun to play. However maybe you should consider not running fateful showdown, and maybe more creatures, such as Torrential Gearhulk, or Thing in the Ice Flip, or Stormchaser Mage, or maybe even Bedlam Reveler for the same effect as fateful showdown. Also maybe you should run less counters and more burn, if you are just keeping it budget. Adding a bit more damage should pave way for an easier win con, instead of just relying on Enigma Drake. Compelling arguments doesn't seem to fit either, maybe run Disallow or Void Shatter or Censor in its place.(assuming you are able to get those) All in all cool deck idea, and welcome to Magic the Gathering deck building :D

Well, I can instantly make a ton of suggestions.
Essence Scatter should be Mana Leak
Lightning Strike should be Lightning Bolt.
Negate should be Remand
Revolutionary Rebuff should be Spell Pierce
Searing Spear should be Lava Spike
Wild Slash isn't worth playing.
Chimera should probably be Cryptic Serpent. 5 instant/sorceries in graveyard make Chimera a 5/3, aka still dies to bolt, for 3 mana. 5 instant/sorceries in graveyard make Cryptic a UU 6/5 aka doesn't die to bolt. Or swap Chimera for Enigma Drake, the trample will be less relevant than 1 more toughness will be.

You aren't playing any green. Cut your Steam Vents for a Taiga. Cut mainboarded Mindbreak Trap, Pyroblast, Sudden Shock and about 4 lands. You want a land base of 1 of each basic, 4 Volcs, 4 Wastelands and the rest fetches.
Delver of Secrets Flip. Delver of Secrets Flip, Monastery Swiftspear, Soul-Scar Mage, Stormchaser Mage, 14 creatures total is the standard line up. Eidolon of the Great Revel doesn't see play in Legacy delver because of brainstorm etc.
Cut Preordain for Probe. Playset of Bolt and Chain Lightning. 2 Price of Progress. 4 Daze.

I like the deck for sure. I would definitely recommend some Prowess creatures, as it just like a wasted opportunity to not run them in this kind of Izzet deck. Monastery Swiftspear, Mage-Ring Bully, Stormchaser Mage, Pearl Lake Ancient, and Sage-Eye Avengers could all do really well in this deck.
