Niv Mizzet welcomes you to the guild of blue and red

The rage of red and the draw of power of blue. The Izzet League believes when asked how much power you need the answer should always be “More”. This color combo allows for aggressive or oppressive approaches to the game. With this pair we can burn as we learn new information that will help lead us to victory. Every game is a chance to test our knowledge and jumpstart our path to mythic. Here are the top Izzet decks you can face out in the arena.

4)Shark attack

Of all the fears of the skies who would’ve expected sharks?

The amount of decks that use Shark Typhoon are making me run out of sharknado jokes. Cast expensive spells to send a whirlwind of fins to devour your opponents. Use a variety of versatile instants and sorceries to create a hungry hoard and let the sharks be as jaw-some as they are.

2) Overload Control

Lighting is normal in the workplace of an izzet guild member
