Hey, you've done well overall with card selection on a current $300 budget. The good parts of your deck are the robust Dragon base and the nice selection of Planeswalkers. What can be improved is the manabase, more ramp/color fixing for five colors and more repeatable draw/tutors.

The manabase is slow with the Thriving lands and the Vivid lands which all ETB tapped. My advice is keep five Thriving lands, cut the Vivid lands and one Thriving land? Replace them with lands that have interaction with basic lands because there's 21 basic lands here. The five budget Battle lands can help the manabase since they have interaction with lots of basic lands to ETB untapped and Farseek can search for one of them.

Cascading Cataracts is a helpful land to cast Ur-Dragon and Crop Rotation can tutor for it. Rotation can be sac a basic land to tutor for any land and put it onto the battlefield. The five Triomes especially Forest ones would be upgrades for Thriving lands: Indatha Triome ($5), Ketria Triome ($6) and Zagoth Triome ($7). The prices of Triomes are displayed wrong here, they're all much less price. Land ramp that can interact with Triomes can really help with color fixing. Skyshroud Claim, Nature's Lore, Wood Elves can search for a Forest Triome and Farseek can search for any Triome.

8 additional mana sources that are 3 CMC or lower is a low amount for a 4.7 avg CMC deck with only 36 lands. Consider a few more sources of ramp/color fixing? The most important cards to want to cast in the early game is ramp or a repeatable draw source.


Some more budget tutors could replace some of the lesser Dragons. More low CMC tutors can get the better Dragons/other cards while also lowering the mana curve.

Low CMC repeatable draw sources when Dragons ETB are very good especially ones that trigger when a Dragon token is created. Ascendancy and Kiora are here, but consider more? The more of these enchantments you have the better chance you have of getting one onto the battlefield before you start casting Dragons.

Dragonlord Ojutai is a four drop Dragon thanks to the Ur-Dragon. It can potentially be repeatable Anticipate card advantage. The selection of what card you put into your hand is what makes it good on a budget.

Good luck with your deck.

Congregation at Dawn. Sets up your draws for days, basically just Sylvan Tutor on steroids but minus $50

DeinoStinkus- Thank you so much for the suggestion and kind words.

Congregation at Dawn was actually in the original version of the deck but I took it out after just a little bit of playtesting. While it looks to be perfect for the deck, tutoring value and wincons in a useful color combo while guaranteeing hits with Niv, I actually found that it tended to work against what the deck wants to do. Niv-Mizzet Reborn is so good at refilling our hand with action that our best topdecks are actually lands and ramp, (cards that Niv can't find.) We really want to be hitting our land drops as often as possible moving into the late game, so that we can have enough Mana to play one of our big creature finishers with countermagic backup (or some other protection spell like Simic Charm.) We also want to have enough lands that if we find a Scapeshift or Bring to Light in the late game, we can slam it as an "I win" card. So while Congregation at Dawn seems really good and fits great in some other Niv decks, it's just a bit awkward for this deck's game plan.

Congregation at Dawn can not only Tutor creatures but also help Niv draw more cards! Love the deck, I made a Ravnica-themed Niv deck once.

Hey, nice budget upgrade of the precon. Good upgrade of Kiki.

Budget cards to consider adding:


Cards to consider cutting:


Examples of some changes to consider:

  • Jungle Shrine > Jungle Hollow
    I'm guessing you meant to type Shrine instead of Hollow since Hollow is not a legal card in Naya colors.

  • Breath of Fury or Zealous Conscripts > Burning Anger
    Fury or Conscripts are win condition combos with either Ghired or Kiki, they will have a lot more impact than Burning.

  • Quartzwood Crasher > Desolation Twin
    Crasher at five mana can be repeatable Dino tokens that can be 10/10s or higher that have trample. The 10/10 Eldrazi that Twin creates is not good enough for 10 mana.

  • Ogre Battledriver > Samut, Tyrant Smasher

  • Congregation at Dawn or Shared Summons > Vivien's Invocation
    Invocation at seven mana can miss in the top seven and not reveal a creature. Dawn at three mana or Summons at five don't miss.

Good luck with your deck.

Hi there,

Mayael the Anima was my first commander deck. I no longer run her, but there are a few things that I learned while playing her:

1) Protection is key: Because of her ability, Mayael is a lightning rod for removal. I'd think about including cards like Swiftfoot Boots, Lightning Greaves, Dense Foliage (you aren't running much targeted removal anyways), Aspect of Mongoose, or some Umbras.

2) You need a back-up plan: You've already have a few ways besides Mayael to cheat creatures in, but I would highly recommend Hunting Grounds, as well as more ramp/mana doublers like Mirari's Wake

3) Top deck manipulation is the most important thing: In addition to Mirri's Guile, consider adding Sensei's Divining Top, Crystal Ball, Congregation at Dawn, and Scroll Rack (if you have the budget)

Also, some haste enablers like Rhythm of the Wild would be good. And I see that the pair of Avacyn, Angel of Hope/Sigarda, Host of Herons have already been suggested. I would consider the third member of the holy trinity, Archetype of Endurance, for complete protection.

I don't believe the Heliod + Ballista combo works. Isn't lifelink just combat damage for creatures?

Cool deck though, I think Congregation at Dawn or Shared Summons could work. Mt friend always runs a fun Sun Titan+Fiend Hunter combo using a sack outlet like Altar of Dementia.
