Trying out Control in the new Standard block.
Izzet this time, the deck is mostly counters, trying to slow the game to a snail's pace.
The deck mostly wins by slowing the game down until either Hypersonic Dragon or Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius can come onto the field. Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius has the added benefit of pinging without tapping and MASSIVE card advantage (an empty hand is 4 cards the turn after he drops if you can tap out, 3 pings and him swinging).
As always I am open to any suggestions. I originally was planning on playing Izzet as a burn deck, but it seems to have a pretty strong control game. I may add Delver of Secrets Flip for an early game beater.
Any cards you think belong in the deck/function better than what is in the deck will be taken into consideration.
-3x Hypersonic Dragon : I run 0 sorceries. A 4/4 flier with haste would be nice, but guttersnipe makes my counterspells deal damage
-1x Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius :brings avg cmc below 3.
