I've got this Casual Izzet deck that just kills, and I'd like to take it Standard legal, or at least build another, Standard version of it. Help me out here?

LANDS: 22
9x Island
9x Mountain
3x Steam Vents
1x Izzet Guildgate (Will be swapping for another Vent when I get one)

CREATURES:20

1 each:
Hypersonic Dragon
Charmbreaker Devils
Tibor and Lumia
Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius

2x Izzet Staticaster
2x Guttersnipe
2x Blistercoil Weird
2x Nivmagus Elemental (Will go to 4x when I can; the weirds are placeholders)
4x Goblin Electromancer
4x Nivix Guildmage

PLANESWALKERS: 1
1x Jace, Architect of Thought

INSTANTS: 14
4x Lightning Bolt
4x Counterspell
4x Izzet Charm
2x Brainstorm

SORCERIES: 5

2x Epic Experiment
2x Teleportal
1x Fireball

TOTAL: 62 cards

Thanks in advance for any suggestions~! Like I said, I know this version's not anything close to Standard, I'm just looking for suggestions on what would be best for a Standard version of this thing. The whole idea is kind of: I play an instant, and then all this stuff happens~! Now you can respond to it.

SO, yeah...thanks again~!
I don't know why you say it's not very close to standard. I see five cards that need to be changed:

Tibor and Lumia: I'd add another Guttersnipe. Some people play with Chandra, the Firebrand.
Lightning Bolt: Replace with Pillar of Flame or Searing Spear
Counterspell: Replace with Dissipate or Syncopate
Brainstorm: Replace with Desperate Ravings
Fireball: Replace with Mizzium Mortars or Bonfire of the Damned or Thunderous Wrath or Devil's Play

Alrighty, I guess I thought a few other things were out of type. Hm.

Thanks for the pointers, man~! Out of curiosity, what do you think of the base build I have here?
