Lovely synergy with Dual Casting there. Basically copies every single instant or sorcery you control. There might be a standard deck in there somewhere, who knows?

@SyntheticDreamer: Uh... Yeah it does. Not every piece of synergy needs to result in an infinite combo, ya know...

You just tap this lil guy in response to casting the spell, and then his ability checks to see if he's tapped and untaps himself.

@SyntheticDreamer: He meant that it provides one copy for each instant/sorcery spell you cast, even if you cast more than one spell per turn (on any other creature, Dual Casting means you can only copy on spell per turn).

Of course Izzet gets the weirdest one of the hybrid uncommon creature cycle. Looks like it might be good with combat tricks, or in some strange control-Kiln Fiend thing.

Paradise Mantle turns all your 1 cost instants/sorceries into free spells, or even just makes everything else cheaper

Run cantrips like Ponder and Preordain and this actually has the potential to get pretty big as early as turn 2.

A lot of cards are having synergy with instants and sorceries lately. And once the third set of this block comes out, there will most likely be even more, probably the most spell-heavy standard in a while.
@ Nucleon: NEAT! *Takes picture*

Swing with this guy using Teleportal.
On your opponent's turn, Chemister's Trick your opponents' creatures into attacking.

I love the Izzet synergy in this block. It was quite cumbersome in Guildpact, but here we can see a lot of really cool potential for an Izzet midrange.

Nucleon has the right idea... Nivmagus, Guttersnipe, Blistercoil, and Dual Casting make for some crazy interactions.

i have been testing with the four i mentioned with a bunch of card draw (Think Twice, Faithless Looting, and Izzet Charm) mixed with burn (Pillar of Flame, Electrickery, and Izzet Charm) and it becomes very nutty very fast.

if you can get all three (Nivmagus, Blistercoil, and Guttersnipe) on board at the same time with Blistercoil holding Dual Casting, four red mana and two Pillars buys you 8 damage (via Guttersnipe) a 5/5 Blistercoil and a PERMANENT 9/10 Nivmagus... talk about a game ender out of nowhere.

and in a pinch a card like Mizzium Skin can even help protect all your dudes for just two mana.

This is broken. I just don't know how yet.

My first spell was Banishing Knack.
