Original list (by saffronolive):

Spells (13)
3 x Dive Down
4 x Opt
2 x Spell Pierce

2 x Riddleform
Lands (21)
7 x Island
6 x Mountain
4 x Spirebluff Canal

What a trolltastic deck! Hard to play, because it's easy to get blown out, but when it goes off, opponents are sure to get salty. I only played 3 games with it and lost the first 2 to flooding (and a god draw by an izzet wizards deck, man I love that deck) and a stupid misplay, but game 3 vs a mono-green deck who was curving out perfectly, it blew him out of the water with a T5 kill. Opponent goes and let's his timers run down, trying to figure out what the hell was going on... Then rage quit as my beefed up flying Valduk and his goons ran right through him.

I may try out some short sword as an alternative to some of the auras, because in theory it should give you some chance to come back if your first dude bite the dust.

A while back I was destroyed by a 1/1 Hexproof token with a ton of auras on it. It was quite embarrassing at the time.

This deck looks interesting in the same way.

This deck works perfectly when your opponent hits his curve... while they are tapped out you can put 3 auras on the champion or Valduc and wreck faces!!
I got schooled by this deck when I had an amazing start with my RDW.
Cool deck!

that Valduk card just scratches me in all the right places. I love those types of cards.

I've put together an equipment version and it is about the same. The best match-up is mono green, they're busy curving out and I can play my stuff freely without fear of removal, but the deck is inconsistent... Lots of auras/equipments with only 12 creatures usually means that if removal takes out your first guy, your in trouble.
The deck needs to be ballanced out.
Boros could be interesting, throw in some Bloodlust inciters (for haste and chumping) and some lifelinkers and you can survive a bit longer. Danitha Capashen looks like a solid addition, but the White auras are kind of expensive, especially the better ones.

I like your build, I'd probably go with some cast out and lightning strikes. Seal Away is just dead against control and opponents that know your holding it (Rdw mostly).

I've only played squee once and my opponent used Ixalan’s Binding on him, which is the only card in the whole cardpool that can stop the annoying Goblin...

I played vs an Izzit version that was decent.

On the Draw:

T1 random equipment. T2 Riddle Form. T3 Champion of flames +Cartouche of Zeal, swing for 7. T4 swing for 7 again after removing a blocker and activating riddle form. T5 Pump up to 11/11 and swing for 14. Was able to block 10 of it......but was enough for lethal. Had Angel of sanctions in hand for my turn, but guessing he had counter spell or hexproof for that.

IMO, Izzet has been best build I have played against. Saw another one that used the 1 mana blue flyer that can sac to counter a spell. Assuming they are running Dive Down as well.

Still Janky as hell, but when it works it is a thing of beauty.
