hkhssweiss what cards would you suggest I put in to help tune the deck then? I saw the card Blaze and that works just like a fireball for what I need. So from what I see stuff like Banefire , Comet Storm , Devil's Play and Electrodominance for those big final turn pushes. For defense I was thinking a lot of return spells such as AEtherspouts , Devastation Tide , Crush of Tentacles and Aether Gale please tell me what you think and if you have more ideas on how to help I would really like it.

I’ve been tinkering with my Tetsuko list recently - I added Mystical Tutor , Jeskai Elder , Scroll Thief , Consecrated Sphinx , Throne of the God-Pharaoh , and Deepfathom Skulker (cutting Crush of Tentacles , Nimble Obstructionist , Phyrexian Revoker , AEtherspouts , Surrakar Spellblade , and AEtherspouts ). Any other changes you’d suggest, or insight?

Oh man, Quest for Ula's Temple AND Crush of Tentacles?! I've seen enough here, sign me up please! Definitely a +1!

Also, if you're seriously planning on milling people out, Mind Grind and/or Fraying Sanity might be for you. Cheers!

Hello there,

for sure you gonna need Reiterate and Capsize to go with Mizzix. I'd take outShattering Spree and put in Vandalblast Seal of the Guildpact is not great in Mizzix deck, because thanks to him you gonna cast spell for cheap. All 3 enchantments what you run - I'd take them out because from my experience they get removed quite fast. You definitely want to put Brass's Bounty in there, comboing it with Reiterate for infinite mana in form of treasure tokens. Take out Nevinyrral's Disk. Run bit more control spells, type of Evacuation Crush of Tentacles Capsize Cyclonic Rift Curse of the Swine

Reality Spasm or Turnabout - you can either tap anything on board or again, infinite mana combo with Reiterate.

Seems like a pretty decently put together deck! Looks like its wincon is, "Generate a butt ton of mana, then fork a huge burn spell"

One thing I will say is that your "Board Presence" category is pretty lacking. Board presence in general will be a hard thing for Mizzix to achieve, and, other than an early Talarand sticking or a big Clone Legion, you don't really have much. Again, board presence isn't even like a secondary goal of a typical Mizzix deck, but if you want some, try running Young Pyromancer for a weaker, but earlier token generator. Also, I run Call the Skybreaker. It gives a 5/5 flyer for 7 mana which and be cast again and again by discarding land and is also a great way to push experience counters. Also look into Rite of Replication.

I'd run Evacuation instead of Crush of Tentacles as it is one less mana and an 8/8 doesn't really help advance your wincon.

As for your ramp/rituals. I think you are running a couple too many rituals. The problem is that you have all those rituals and nothing really to use it on. And with the amount of tutors you have, I think it is resonable that you cut a couple of your combo pieces in favor or some other tricks that your deck isn't currently doing, since you can get your combo reliably as well. I'd take out Mana Flare, as it gives a good amount of benefit to your opponents whilst you should be getting your vast amount of many other ways. And It'd also take out Commander's Sphere in favor of just another draw spell.

Anyway, looks like a great likes that is pretty cheap to make as well. I have my Mizzix on my page and would love to talk more about it because she is my favorite commander :))

Thanks Aaerys, I removed Covert Operative and replaced it with Crush of Tentacles. :-)

One really situational addition to Kogarashi's post. Let's say you had Hypersonic Dragon in play. Then you could cast Crush of Tentacles on your opponents turn for its surge cost--you would not even have to wait for the prior spell to resolve.
