Because of your Spellheart Chimera and Crackling Drake, you'd be better off replacing the Charmbreaker Devils with Kiln Fiend. Charmbreaker Devils makes you remove power from your Spellheart Chimera and Crackling Drake by taking cards out of your graveyard. Therefore Kiln Fiend is better in almost every way, it gets about the same bonus for every instant/sorcery cast, it costs only 2cmc compared to the Devils' 6cmc and you don't remove power from your other creatures previously mentioned.

Swilliam I really liked your suggestions. I was thinking of moving Blink of an Eye to sideboard and was looking for a good sub and Censor is just what I was looking for! I refused taking Spellheart Chimera only of one reason: it doesn’t pass the bolt test. Thank you!

If you do decide to run any more counterspells, Censor has cycling and can give you a bit of extra value. Izzet Charm is the same because of the variety of modes you can choose from As far as deciding whether to be more aggressive or midrange-y, I like the option with Sprite Dragon. You can also add some copies of Spellheart Chimera to lower your curve!

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.

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!

Spellheart Chimera is another beater worth considering with the drake strategy.

Hey man!

I saw your deck while looking for some Pioneer deck ideas. Really good deck, my dad used to play Izzet Drakes while it was still in Standard. Have you considered Spellheart Chimera and Steam Vents ? In my opinion, Spellheart is better than Enigma Drake , as it has trample, but you could replace Pteramander for it too. You only have 10 lands that make Sulfur Falls enter the battlefield untapped, and I think you need more to make it more consistent. Steam Vents fits that bill perfectly, as it's a duel land while also having basic land types. I think you should replace the Temples because you want to be using up all your lands to cast spells and creatures. You could also take out a Shivan Reef to make space for a playset of Steam Vents.

Good Luck,

Hexaflexagon
