What do you guys think about a deck that plays RU either with Melek, Izzet Paragon or Mizzix of the Izmagnus at the helm that wins via pump spells and commander damage? My biggest concern is that it just turns into yet another combo deck with these colors. Do you see a way to do it where it's not so?

For pump spells:
Schismotivate, Balduvian Rage, Fatal Frenzy, Psychotic Fury, and similar spells.

I was also thinking of adding ways to steal/borrow my opponents creatures.

Sounds like a fun way to win!

Leering Emblem is a good card for this.

Blood Lust obviously. Not because it's a good card, but because you should play it, it's just so oldskool fancy stuff :)

Livewire Lash and Blazing Shoal are good cards for this.

I've started building a deck like this, but the builds I ended up with were mostly glass cannons. It also misfired a lot. I'm not sure what the formula is to prevent it from doing this.

My Homura Deck has some similarities. Make him big; then, if you kill him, he makes everything else a threat.

Shu Yun was printed for precisely this sort of deck. Given his abilities, it's pretty easy to get up to 21 commander damage with spells like Fatal Frenzy. A cool bonus is that because of his colors, Sunforger/Mistveil Plains can be a thing in this deck.

Diviner's Wand turns cantrips/draw into pump and equips to wizards for free if you wanna use Mizz or Melek.
Seething Anger ispretty good pump in an instants+sorceries matter voltron thing.
