Sprite Dragon might be a good addition here. Also if you are not exiling much, Spellheart Chimera is essentially another copy of Enigma Drake. Izzet Charm is versatile and can fit into most any deck of these colors.

Hello! About a half year ago my friends showed me MTG and i fell in love with this game. Until now, I only played with my friends so we didn't really care about the formats of MTG. I used three decks that i bought used from some guy. I think he didn't know much about MTG, because i bought all the three decks from him for like 3$. The decks were: 1. Preconstructed Planeswalker Deck Mu Yanling from Core Set 2020 (I think...) 2. Preconstructed Challenger Deck Second Sun Control 3. A blue-red nonpreconstructed deck in a plastic box with the name Izzet Drakes on it. It consists of cards like Crackling Drake or Enigma Drake or Pteramander and a bunch of sorceries and instants.
Now to the point. I would like to try some tournaments at my local shop. I'm not really familiar with the formats (so maybe someone could explain it to me, please) but the reason why i posted this in the Standard section is because two reasons: 1. There's a tournament for Standard every week that is free (I don't want to pay a lot when I'm beginning) 2. Someone told me once, that a competetivdeck in Standard will be much cheaper than in Modern
So i would like to probably build a competetiv deck for Standard, unless someon recommends me a better format. The reason why I want to build a new deck is because: 1. I don't think any of my current decks is good enough to be played in some (even small) competition 2. The only deck that is fully legal in Standard is the Mu Yanling Planeswalker Deck, which is probably the worst of the three
I want the deck to stay under 30$ if possible, and the other thing, that is probably impossible, but i will say it here anywayw is - I know that every autumn four of the oldest sets rotate out of Standard, so could it be possible to recommend a deck that would NOT rotate in autumn 2020? Please recommend some decks and help me! Thanks for all your answers!
P.S.: Sorry for the long post...

Couple of things can make this deck a really efficient killer really fast. First is I would replace Cathartic Reunion with Izzet Charm just for the additional flexibility and slightly better discard ability. The second would be to cut out the Enigma Drake s and just run the Spellheart Chimera and Crackling Drake because they’re the better beater drakes. The other thing is that while Strategic Planning is just crazy strong in Izzet Phoenix, in builds like this it’s not as good because we don’t get to use the resources we discard apart from as 1-2 extra attack on drakes usually and sometimes we have to pitch a Drake which makes this deck super duper sad. Looks like it would be super cool though, Godspeed Captain!

One thing I’ve noticed that your deck is very counterspell heavy, with 11 in the main deck; in general, from personal experience, decks that are heavily counterspell based aim to control the tempo of the game, slowing their opponent’s game plans while advancing their own. However, the quality of counterspells aren’t great in your deck and get very quickly outclassed (see Izzet Charm / Quench as opposed to something like Absorb / Frilled Mystic ) and there aren’t any flash threats present in your deck that aren’t cheap counterspells. Looking at Azorius and Simic Flash, they hold up the threat of counterspells, but also have ways to apply pressure in case there is no need to counterspell, such as Nightpack Ambusher and Archangel Avacyn Flip. While you have Cryptic Serpent and Enigma Drake , playing those on curve prevents you from holding up counterspells, and every turn later they’re played allows your opponents to go over your game plan, and potentially beat you. Maybe adding something like Young Pyromancer or Thing in the Ice Flip would be better than Curious Homunculus Flip, as one can generate a huge battlefield and the other can provide a huge threat and tempo shift. Bedlam Reveler can also be better late game, as even though you have to tap on your turn for it, it can help refill your hand. Improving the quality of counterspells with cards like Ionize and Mindswipe could make your deck much better late game, and maybe adding more flash threats like Elder Deep-Fiend , Brazen Borrower and Brineborn Cutthroat could help apply more pressure to your opponents. Cards like AEtherize to act as a pseudo Settle the Wreckage could be a great idea as well. Of course, this kind of Izzet Flash deck not be the goal of your deck; in that case, perhaps remove Quench and Izzet Charm , as these kinds of counterspells are only really good early game and are dead draws later on.

multimedia thxs i thought Drake Haven was blue and green for some reason so i never considered it but I did add it and added Looting cards to help it go off and added Flux Channeler to as well for your right and will help both Viral Drake and Ral go off faster.
ScionsStillLive Crackling Drake was already added one the first ones i added but thxs for trying to help anyways if you have more ideas don't hesitate to share them
