Here’s some advice on the deck from Wizards of the Coast, Magic’s creators:

“”Arcane Tempo,” the blue-red Challenger Deck, is yet another deck that was going through lots of fluctuations as the metagame evolved. The number of Goblin Electromancers constantly changes, Enigma Drake and Crackling Drake are either played in tandem or one over the other, and cards like Murmuring Mystic, Niv-Mizzet, Parun, and The Mirari Conjecture occasionally appear. We decided to go with a much more controlling build with main deck Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Murmuring Mystic for archetype diversity between the Challenger Decks. Much of our inspiration came from Pascal Vieren’s Izzet Drakes deck with which he went 9-1 at Pro Tour Guilds of Ravnica.

If you’re interested in being more aggressive and playing a tempo strategy, you can consider adding Pteramander, Enigma Drake, and Spell Pierce. I also recommend Andrew Jessup’s 1st-place deck from the StarCityGames.com Invitational in December and Luis Scott-Vargas’s deck from the Top 8 of Mythic Championship I as inspirations to edit your decklist. This archetype is very open-ended!”
