Last post
I havent really played in a while and never posted a deck build before so hopefully I do this right.
during the prerelease I chose izzet, it felt like it fit my personality and I did like all the tricky cards and the deck felt wierd but right. even though I only won one round agaisnt someones raknos deck.
So I guess I'll post the cards that I used in the deck first, it was a 56 card deck with 9 mountains, 9 islands, and a izzet guildgate much to everyones surprise...I still had mana issues lol
okay cards are:
3x downsize 
Chemist's trick
Tenement Crusher
2x Izzet staticaster, this was one of my MVPs during the tourny
Codex Shredder, feel like saying the second MVP but was more annoying then anything
Dynacharge
2x doorkeepers
Counterflux
Hover Barrier
Utvara Hellkite, Would be MvP but mana issues state otherwise, was scary enough for one player to whipe the whole board both my and his stuff. 
2x Cancel
Mizzum Mortars
2x Survey the Wreckage
Crosstown Courier
Hypersonic Dragon (traded for a second one after teh tourney so two now) 
Essence Backlash
Goblin rally, This was an MvP throwing up a nice wall o goblins was a lifesaver in multiple games
Paralyzing grasp
Teleportal
2x cobblebrute 
Runewing
Electrickery
2x Annihilating Fire
Vandleblast, never had to use it once
Viashino Racketeer
Inaction Injunction
Frostburn Weird
Vassel Soul

That is basically what I through together for the prerelease tourny
Cards I am thinking of trying to get to add to my deck or switching out cards for:

Chromatic Lantern


Izzet Keyrune


Tablet of the Guilds


Transguild Promenade


Goblin Electromancer


Growing Ranks


Izzet Charm


Guttersnipe


Pursuit of Flight


Pyroconvergence


Racecourse Fury


Chronic Flooding


Psychic Spiral


Arrest


Avenging Arrow


Eyes in the Skies


Phantom General


Trostani's Judgment


Krenko, Mob Boss

The white cards are because someone in another forum advised that I should splash white in the deck 


I am not entirely sure what would be best to do, I dot know bringing out goblin tokens was pure joy and I kindof like the idea of hiding behind defensive monsters while chucking spells.
Also I know I will never be a tourny winner however my the best and most enjoyable game I ever played was a VS tourny at a game store where I had to go up agasint a non regular player that the store employees refered to as "the ringer" I did lose but my deck was so annoying to kill that all the other players were proud of me for giving him a frustratingly diffcult win. So I am not sure where to take this deck I just know that it was fun.
Sorry if this isnt much info hah I havent really played in a loooong time.
 

I'll clean your post up a bit, otherwise no one is going to want to help you.

As with most prerelease decks, this one is really clunky. First off, just a general word of advice: you don't need a 60 card deck in a prerelease. Playing a 40 card one will give you much better results. And 18 land is not enough for a 60 card deck; 24 is the standard.

A lot of the cards you listed in your post as substitutes don't really fit, however cards like izzet charm, goblin electromancer  and guttersnipe  will work well. With Izzet, I'd pack some burn spells such as searing spear,  and try nivmagus elemental  out. If you don't want to keep it standard legal, look into some izzet cards from the original Ravnica.
