After looking at the various mana costs for the instants and sorcery in the deck, I have decided that Goblin Electromancer really isn't as useful as I thought he would be. He has great use in other decks, but I think I will replace him in this deck. Vexing Devil would be a good replacement I think.
+1 i like itCheck out my izzet RTR deck Izzet Control

I'm inclined to agree that Guttersnipe really should be on this list. He adds a Shock to every single spell you play which makes him quite a threat. Even when you are countering your opponents removal he hurts them. However, I think I'd remove the Chemister instead of the Dragon. Mercurial Chemister gives you two abilities. The first is a card draw which is powerful, arguably more useful than the Izzet Charm and Faithless Looting 's abilities. As an example: You could replace Faithless Looting with Think Twice or Divination . The Electromancer reduces the mana cost on those cards and Guttersnipe lets you milk them for some damage in addition to your new card. The Chemister's second ability targets ONLY creatures and given the low mana cost on a lot of your spells its more than likely only going to do 1 or 2 damage. The Dragon on the other hand speeds up the end of the game by making some of your spells more versatile but more importantly he is a 4/4 hasted flier you can turn sideways to work out the last few points of your opponents life.

Also, I just feel like the Leviathan is way outta sorts. A better finisher would be Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius .

I would agree fully. But the difference is that Stormtide is less than $1 and Niv mizzet is currently about $10. He will be there eventually but for now, stormtide will have to do.

Mainly he was there just out of personal preference. I wanted a large game ending card and I have always wanted to use him in a deck. A much better card for his spot would actually be niv-mizzet but I will have to check prices and most likely pick him up a while after this deck is made.
