Welcome to another edition of Random Friday, the article series where I go over different decks in detail (and normally trash them to rebuild them into something better). Today, up on our chopping block is my current Izzet deck, which is built around Melek, Izzet Paragon right now. Melek really hasn’t been pulling his weight, so it’s time to rebuild!
