Contagion Engine Discussion

Hi xSHAMUSx, Contagion Engine is respectable, the -1/-1 is nice for defense. The proliferate 2 is nice. The main reason I don't play it is the CMC6 and the Activate 4. If I have 10 mana at my disposal, I should already have enough Experience and have pulled a combo. CMC10 is just too slow and too steep a cost for me.
Izzet has a tough time pulling creatures, ie: Arjun, the Shifting Flame.
Some recommendations might be:
Blue Sun's Zenith, Brain Freeze, Stroke of Genius, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Jushi Apprentice, Enter the Infinite + Laboratory Maniac, Show and Tell + Omniscience, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Ambassador Laquatus, Grindclock, Millstone, Mind's Eye, Beacon of Tomorrows, Windfall, Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul, Jace, Memory Adept, Memory Erosion, Dreamborn Muse, Jace's Archivist, Altar of Dementia + Glen Elendra Archmage + Sage of Fables, Altar of the Brood, Keening Stone, Mesmeric Orb, Mindcrank, Increasing Confusion, Tunnel Vision + Jace, the Mind Sculptor (Using his +2).
Would have to put together a preliminary build. Would need 1) Some way to survive since you'll pull threat from at least one player 2) Some way to go fast, cheap mana rocks etc to push into the big creatures.
Sorry if I duplicated any there, a couple good combos in there.
I should warn you though, in 4 player commander, it may be tough to mill all 3 opponents, you could do it, but may not be consistent. I think has better mill/control because of the .

Nice deck :)

Typed in search, was surprised not to get any hits; have you considered Contagion Engine? I've found it a really good way to boost the Experience during turns between Mizzix presence.
My deck is leaning towards milling people out with Jace's Erasure and Arjun, the Shifting Flame, but not really revealing that to be the strategy until I'm in a position to win. I was wondering if you had any opinion/pointers on other strategies for Mizzix like mine?

a good 5 colour deck is surely expensive, just because of the manabase. you either have only splashed colours and mostly artifacts (which are usually expensive), or you rely on the coloured spells and need a lot of fetchlands and duals...or it's unreliable ;)
I currently play a 4 colour deck, which also has a lot of planeswalkers, but I didn't use the mediocre ones...it's a strong proactive control deck, so if you want to invest some more Money you might find some ideas here: Atraxa's super(un)friendly Stax

For doubling effect I also recomend, Vorel of the Hull Clade

With the number of -1 -1 counters you are distributing I recommend adding more things with Proliferate than just Grim Affliction such as Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Core Prowler, Spread the Sickness, and if you add artafafacts to sacrifice Throne of Geth. I would also ramp up the grave yard recursion. Phyrexian Reclamation can help you get your creatures back Really your strength is in numbers. I would also think that Drana, Kalastria Bloodchief might make a better general. she might as well read kill their biggest creature and attack for half lethal general damage.
Thanks for the up-vote. You will get mine when this is more efficient.

I see you already have Rings of Brighthearth in your maybeboard, but I really suggest you move it to mainboard ASAP. Being able to ramp up twice as fast with Yisan can be really deadly at any stage of the game.
Also, the Proliferate effect can be used to increase the number of Verse counters on Yisan, in order to start fetching out higher CMC creatures faster. There's only a few options for monogreen, Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, and Plaguemaw Beast.
Nice deck overall, always liked Yisan as a Commander.
