Izzet Standard

Standard U/R (Izzet)

zinkpro45 Score: 3


Description

Izzet Standard deck.

Delver is able to be flipped with a large number of instants and sorceries. Electromancer drops the cost of all your instants and sorceries. Nivmagus Elemental is there as a counter against counters and for throwing useless spells. Guttersnipe combos with instants and sorceries to deal direct damage.

Dissipate for a counter.

Izzet Charm is just a fantastic multitool.

Bonfire and Cyclonic Rift are both board wipes for the opponent's side.

Pillar is good against scavenge.

Epic Experiment is a fantastic spell. Combos very very nicely with Nivmagus to toss counterspells and Guttersnipe to deal damage.

Sulfur Falls and Steam Vents for mana fixing.

Goblin Electromancer is not very useful in this deck as it will only reduce the cost of Cyclonic Rift and Dissipate . Reducing 1 mana on two spells will not increase your chances of winning I think.

It will actually reduce it for Bonfire and Epic Experiment as well.

Actually It will not reduce the cost of spells that have x in their mana cost. X is equal to 0 and you can't reduce it's cost past 0. Honestly i'd consider card:Judge's Familiar over Goblin Electromancer for more counter and it's presence on the field make's you opponent think twice before casting their instants and sorceries.

If you have five mana on the board, and two goblin electromancers, you then announce that youre casting epic experiment and x is five. Normally it would cost seven cmc, but the electromancers reduce that cost by one colorless each. Does it justify the goblins over, say, vexing devil? Not sure, but it DOES work with X.

remove the electromancer and replace them with rather Nivix Guildmage or Fluxcharger . Nivix works well with Epic Experiment because after the spells are cast, you many have a 13/4 attackers.

Also, just for the versatility, I would recommend Turn / Burn , because when it is played fuse, it counts as 2 spells, buffing up Nivix Cyclops . If you go for a deck like this now, with instant/sorcery playing simply buffs creatures, definitely add Blistercoil Weird .

A really good combo i started using was Runechanter's Pike and Invisible Stalker . your goal is to keep the board clear with small burns and counter spells, filling your graveyard full of spells. then you swing with an amazingly powerful stalker.

Playing Turn//Burn for the fuse does not count as two spells. It counts as one spell that both blue and red...

with Epic Experiment it says "exile the top x cards..." if they're exiled, isnt it impossible to exile them again with Nivmagus Elemental
