Actual best thing I have ever done.
At first I was excited about this, but from what I'm reading you can't overload off of this card. It's pretty lame to me that the izzet mythic has no combo potential with the guild's signature mechanic.I was really looking forward to being able to use overload with eye of the storm. I hope what I'm reading is wrong. :/
117.9a Only one alternative cost can be applied to any one spell as it’s being cast. The controller of the spell announces his or her intentions to pay that cost as described in rule 601.2b.117.9b Alternative costs are always optional.117.9c An alternative cost doesn’t change a spell’s mana cost, only what its controller has to pay to cast it. Spells and abilities that ask for that spell’s mana cost still see the original value.117.9d If an alternative cost is being paid to cast a spell, any additional costs, cost increases, and cost reductions that affect that spell are applied to that alternative cost. (See rule 601.2e.)"
