Izzet Evolution!

Modern Aggro Control U/R (Izzet)

MASTER_BULLWOLF Score: 3


Description

I am unsure about what Izzet is bringing so here is my attempt to upgrade my current standard Izzet deck to the new standard. Suggestions are very welcome!

The only thing I would change is i would up the brimstone volley and noble and put in the two blademasters from side, and then take out the lookouts and thunderous wraths. You need more creatures in a deck built around equipping them, and wrath isnt a very stable card. Its most likely wasted because if its in hand ur never playing it. The only miracle worth playing in your deck is bonfire of the damned, which is expensive(but id go for it if u got the money laying around). Also lookout isn't needed and is just a mana waster. You have loothouse and ponder already. Actually maybe vexing devil would be a better choice than blademaster

I agree, and Augur of Bolas is a great card in this style deck.

I played B/R Delver similar to this but pre M13.. Defintiely drop the Thunderous Wrath for Bonfire (At Least 2). I also played with vexing devil and found it to be quite ineffective. In the early game it is a nice 4 damage, but in the later game, they will let it resolve and deal with it accordingly. I would drop the 2 vexing devils, and 1 runechanter's pike and add 3 pillar of flame for zombies and strangle root. Instead of having the pillar in your sideboard, I would find room for 3 combust. I played this deck a couple of times and went 3-1 with it most of the time.

Index is garbage, Auger fills in the roll better.

Yes index is horrible. Maybe Think Twice instead?

Think Twice did slip my mind. Goblin Electromancer make it cheaper after all, Thanks!

And yes, I hate Index lol

i prefer Guttersnipe than Electromancers. It's more threatening than Electromancers.
