Description

This is a deck I put together mainly because of one card: As Foretold. I pulled this card when I went to pre-release for Amonkhet, and it absolutely destroyed my opponents (says they guy who finished 2-2). Anyway, I decided it would be fun to make a deck using that sort of style, into my favorite format, Commander EDH! I looked for a while finding cards that reduce mana costs or just flat out allows me to skip mana costs all together. This deck is the end result.

This deck includes Baral, Chief of Compliance, Curious Homunculus  Flip, Goblin Electromancer, and of course the commander Mizzix, as methods of reducing mana costs. I've also included Jace's Sanctum, and Arcane Melee, thanks to my lovely comments.

This deck mainly features numerous cards with in their mana cost. The reduction of costs by either experience counters or by any other means, does affect alternative costs like overload, kicker, or buyback costs, as well as filling in for any amount that you would pay for say Epic Experiment or something. Plus whether or not casting those spells gets you another experience counter really depends on how much mana you put into in this case, so they are all good fits in the deck.

The only thing I can think that really needs tuning is that a lot of your red spells target only creatures, it's way better if they can target both the player and/or their creatures. Having tried blazing salvo in some of my other decks you're just better off playing a lightening bolt, as more often than not they're just going to let the creature die.

Tibault and Chandra can be replaced with Chandra Flamecaller and Inexorable Tide.

Scour from Existence takes care of stuff like enchantments that Izzet colors otherwise have a really hard time dealing with.

Mindswipe is an X cost counterspell that also burns the caster's face for X. Pretty cool card for the strategy you're going with here.

Spell Burst is a reusable counterspell that just gains tons of value over time.

Fall of the Titans is a great X finisher that can wipe out two opponents at once if you have the mana.

Power Sink shuts down opponents' land bases while also countering a spell.

Reality Spasm can be fun to untap lands and add extra mana to your mana pool, or tap down a bunch of threatening attackers.

Jace's Sanctum and Arcane Melee are two more enchantments that help reduce the costs of your instants and sorceries. The Sanctum also helps scry away cards you don't need, which is great.

I love the deck! Just as a warning, when casting an X spell with as foretold, X has to be zero.

I would use a lot more counterspells for the early game because you lack the speed (I don't see any mana artifacts here except one random sol ring). You have to prevent the other players from going faster than you, which means countering and destroying the shit out of their acceleration so you can even get as far as profiting off your cost reduction stuff. I would strongly recommend for example Spell Pierce, Daze, Mental Misstep, Stifle (for fetchlands and important combo pieces), Muddle the Mixture, Isochron Scepter (for all these spells), Thwart and with a higher budget Mana Drain, Force of Will and Pact of Negation, maybe Flusterstorm.

By Force is a great new card to wrack the mana base of at least one player. I'd consider it along with Vandalblast
