Please upvote if you like it! This is my Izzet counter burn deck. It's based around my creatures causing havoc and mayhem from me casting instants and sorcery's. We want our instant and sorcery spells to be as cheap as possible in order to maximize the benefits of my creatures. The more I cast the more it hurts. With 1 gutterrsnipe and 1 Thermo-Alchemist we can get insane damage going! Casting just Shock will do 6 damage. You tap alchemist to deal 1. Then cast shock to deal 2, which triggers gutter for another 2. Then casting it untaps alchemist, which you proceed to tap again for another 1. Pretty great.

-Arcane Denial, Counterspell, and Mana Leak are my counter/draw mechanisms. Allowing me to control the board as well as get draw advantage.

-Shock, Lightning Bolt, and Skullcrack are my burns.

-Ponder is for awesome card draw.

-Gelectrode pings for one here or there but untaps once I cast instants or sorcery's.

-Guttersnipe starts to deal a lot of damage once he comes out. whether I use a counter spell or burn, it activates.

-Thermo-Alchemist is just like Gelectrode but he damage all opponents and cost 1 less to cast.

- Ral Zarek is fantastic for this deck. I mainly have him for untapping my creatures such as Gelectrode or Thermo-Alchemist. Also tapping creatures that are too much to handle. His other abilities are just icing on the cake to me.

Any and all suggestions are much appreciated! If you like it please upvote! Thanks for looking!
