RambIe on I see fire in those blue eyes

Thought Reflection - Rhystic Study
Etherium-Horn Sorcerer - Runaway Steam-Kin
(most the cards in this deck would be a wiff on cascade trigger)
Swarm Intelligence - Echo of Eons
(swarm is a cool card but cmc way to high, echo will give you a way to reset your deck, also protection from mil)
Izzet Boilerworks - Runic Repetition
(to many lands / deck doesn't utilize bounce, runic will combo with Mystic Retrieval to loop any spell in the deck)
Thousand-Year Storm - Mindmoil
(storm is cool but once you start looping it will just cause you to loose focus and likely miss play, moil works with the current synergy your using)
Swiftwater Cliffs - Primal Amulet  Flip

Hey, well done, very creative on a budget :)

Arcane Signet, Rainbow mana rock is an upgrade for Charcoal Diamond for the "The nine pieces of eight". Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator is a flying Pirate which helps to trigger Brass and is very good with the treasure strategy since he can be repeatable treasures. Malcolm could replace Trophy Mage since Mage is not a character and only has one 3 CMC artifact that's worth tutoring for and Deadeye Quartermaster can tutor for it.

Departed Deckhand is a Pirate who's consistently unblockable/make other Pirates unblockable is an upgrade for Captain Vargus Wrath since Wrath is not a character. Spectral Sailor flying one drop Pirate/repeatable draw source is an upgrade for Rowdy Crew since Crew is also not a character.

Exotic Orchard, Unclaimed Territory, Path of Ancestry are three budget Rainbow land upgrades which could replace Bloodfell Caves, Dismal Backwater and Swiftwater Cliffs.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, interesting start on a budget version of Kess.

Some cards to consider adding:

Cards to consider cutting for these:


Baleful Strix is a two drop who draws a card when it ETB, that way you can blink it with Deadeye to draw many cards. When you assemble Deadeye + Drake for infinite mana then being able to infinite blink a creature who draws can draw your win condition or draw and cast all cards in your deck. It's possible you could have a win condition already on the battlefield or in hand or graveyard with Kess, but if not then infinite blinking Strix lets you draw it.

Gonti, Lord of Luxury can be a win condition with Deadeye + Drake. It's not opponent mill, it's better, it's opponent exile their libraries and with infinite mana you get to cast all your opponent's cards. Arcane Signet , Izzet Signet, Dimir Signet, Rakdos Signet are some two drop mana rocks so you're not only relying on lands to have enough mana to cast cards.

I don't think you need to play so many creatures who recur an instant or sorcery because isn't that what Kess is for? That's the advantage of Kess, you get to cast an instant or sorcery from your graveyard on your turns, but once you resolve that spell is exiled. An exiled spell is no longer in your graveyard to recur to your hand. Archaeomancer is the only creature you want for this effect because you also have blink spells as well as Deadeye and creature recursion/reanimation spells for Archaeomancer.

Good luck with your deck.

plakjekaas on Izzet Tempo - Tournament Ready

Pathways in this deck are probably as good as pathways will be. Since you don't want to lose tempo, you'll want as little "enter the battlefield tapped" lands as you can, so them coming in untapped, keeping up Shock or Opt from turn 1, depending which you have in hand, is probably worth 4 land slots.

I'd make this mana base with 4x Temple of Epiphany and 4x Clearwater Pathway  Flip, and then add basics according to your mana requirements in the deck. No Fabled Passage, no Swiftwater Cliffs, I think even the castles in your colors are too slow for your gameplan. Shatterskull Smashing  Flip is probably worth it, but Sea Gate Restoration  Flip most definitely is not a spell you're ever going to cast, so it's not worth paying 3 life for the land part if it's basically an island in your deck.

Looks nice overall. If it’s in the budget, I’d replace Swiftwater Cliffs with Steam Vents or Scalding Tarn. They’re quite expensive but perform significantly better.

I’d also lower the creature count just a touch to include maybe 4 more instants that either protect your own creatures, remove your opponent’s, or counter spells before they become a problem.

This looks fun. Like a Nekusar deck but with constant access to flashback and without the hate Nekusar brings on sight. I like it. Although if I understand correctly Kess has her own haters too...

I’d be frustrated by your mana base, but it’s a decent budget start. When nearly half of your lands are basics, I would expect to struggle to cast Bolas, or when chaining together wheels it can be frustrating to find I have too much of the wrong colour, and not enough of the right one. You need red or blue, not red and blue, combined with a decent amount of black. I’d try to smash as many UR lands like Izzet Guildgate, Wandering Fumarole or Swiftwater Cliffs as your budget can muster in over basics.

The mana screw happens to my Nekusar deck The Mad King of Tristram often enough in its current state and I find Chromatic Lantern to not be enough although it helps for sure.
