Clear the Mind Discussion

Conartistry on Niv-Mizzet, Parun

3 weeks ago

Love to see another Niv-Mizzet deck!

But I have some questions about what you have here.

Why run Finale of Revelation ? Stroke of Genius can win games for more, and Pull from Tomorrow is an instant at the cost of discarding a card. Either (or both) seems better than Finale.

Since you aren't running many fetches, I think you could afford to cut Brainstorm for Impulse or maybe Sleight of Hand (or Search for Azcanta  Flip which I see in your maybe board).

I don't think Counterflux is all that great, it's really color heavy for a glorified cancel 80% of the time. If storm or control are common in your meta than disregard and keep going.

Ionize does seem rather weak though, I think Counterspell is an easy swap.

How is Consecrated Sphinx doing for you? I'm considering adding him to my own list but I'm not sure if he is better than a Chemister's Insight .

Clear the Mind may be less mana intensive, but I think Learn from the Past is better since it doubles as grave hate in a pinch.

AEtherize never felt great to me, have you considered Starstorm or Earthquake as more permanent control options instead?

How frequently do you actually need Reliquary Tower ? It seems really overkill in most cases especially when your wincon is Dramatic Scepter. Also tapping for colorless when the commander costs is painful.

Isn't Thousand-Year Storm really unnecessary? Sure you get infinite storm with dramatic scepter, but why not just run Grapeshot or Brain Freeze at that point?

How's Keranos, God of Storms doing? He seems painfully slow for the odd chance to bolt.

All in all, I do like the deck. Props for not defaulting to the Curiosity Combo Niv is infamous for! If you're interested, here's my own decklist, though it's still a work in progress, any suggestions are more than welcome: Mad Science with a bit of Control

Dischord on Voodoo Chile

Hmm...what's the gameplan here with this deck? It seems all over the place, but I'm going to guess it's a mill deck with some pillow fort shenanigans in it.

If you're running the Felidar Guardian / Altar of the Brood combo, consider running Spark Double for redundancy. Spark Double is great! It can even copy one of your other planeswalkers in a pinch.

30 lands seems a bit low for a deck with an average CMC of 3.6. I'd suggest bumping up the land count to at least 34! Consider taking out Isochron Scepter (it can only imprint 4 instants in your deck, and without Dramatic Reversal the Scepter is kind of underwhelming in my opinion), Syphon Soul , Clear the Mind , and Butcher Ghoul to get up to 34 lands.

Hope this helps!

I like the idea - BUT:

x4 Search for Azcanta  Flip seems a tad much...

Instead of x2 Clear the Mind , consider the possibility of x1 Clear the Mind with x1 or x2 Mainboarded Devious Cover-Up .

While speaking of Devious Cover-Up, I feel like you're lacking in Hard Counters - Sinister Sabotage seems really good in a deck like this.

I think the idea looks cool - just think the deck needs a some tuning, adjust the numbers to make room for the above suggestions to help you survive early game.

The deck needs to stall and disrupt and survive early game so you can chain River's Rebuke and get to the point where you can Chain Nexus of Fate too so you can win.

Hope that helps.

I do like the deck with the ability to swap between two stratagies like that.

Curious Obsession works very well with your unblockable creatures. I would swap 4 of these in for the 2 Pirate's Cutlass and 2 short swords

I'd also mainboard Thought Collapse freeing up SB options by taking cancel out of the deck entirely. This SB room could be used for Drowned Secrets .

I'm also unclear why you run Clear the Mind ?

Loizo on Self-mill Jace

Yes but with at least 4 counterspells ( Negate Essence Scatter Disdainful Stroke and Hornswoggle and without Clear the Mind . Please explain to me why you think it's good (it's a sorcery so it won't save you from Vraska's Contempt or Bedevil .)

Myriad Landscape , Ash Barrens , Lonely Sandbar , Remote Isle can help thin the deck for better draws.

Reliquary Tower , Thought Vessel , Venser's Journal help with hand size.

Elixir of Immortality or Clear the Mind can shuffle in library later in game.

This deck is very fun to play and easy to pilot. the only change I recommend that was a life saver for me was 3 Clear the Mind because I decked myself before Niv could finish them. it is also then a free win against mill and makes the control matchup a lot safer to play against for bringing back countered Omnis.

all in all nice list
