Curiosity Discussion

Maizena on Nekusar, the Friendship Destroyer [[PRIMER]]

Sorry it took me that long to answer you guys!!!

drcatherwood - You were right, Notion Thief is awesome! It's almost a instawin when you cast a "wheel".

ThaneGarrus - I'd rather to stick with the Firemind. I's easy to cast with the and it is a "combo" with Mind Over Matter .

derpytrollerZ - Curiosity triggers with any damage, not only combat. I can draw my whole deck when using it on Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind or just draw a bunch of cards with Nekusar and a "wheel". Helm of Obedience is a dead card if you don't have a Leyline of the Void on the field, but I really like this combo. And the Leyline is a must in my meta. hkhssweiss already explained the importance of the Library of Leng , it prevent the deck itself from decking out and selectively allows me to keep which cards I want in a wheel effect. It also gives me unlimited hand size.

hkhssweiss - I no longer run Kess, it was a nice suggestion, thank you! I'm thinking about swaping No Mercy for the new Bolas's Citadel .

Rambolicious_0 - I used to run them in the past, they're really not worth it.

winden02, thanks for the tip! It seems smart to add the redundancy. If nothing else, then it would lessen the chance that I have to discard something I want to keep while casting Faithless Looting . If I do test it, I would swap out Thing in the Ice  Flip for 4 copies of Niv-Mizzet, Parun . I feel like have 8x Niv would also make running Thought Scour possible. As my deck stands now, needing 33% of my combo in the grave makes it risky to cast Thought Scour , if I discard a Goryo's Vengeance or a Curiosity , it hurts. Adding another playset of Niv would lower the odds that I get rid of a piece that I want in my hand. It would lower from 66% to 50%. Losing out on Thing in the Ice  Flip could hurt if I cant find the combo, but adding that redundancy could make the combo easier to find. In testing, I'll swap out 3x Opt for 3x Thought Scour , Thing in the Ice  Flip for Niv-Mizzet, Parun and maybe take out a Remand or a Spell Pierce for another Lightning Axe . It's definitely a cool concept, it might be speedy enough to work well! Thanks for the tip, it made me think a lot.

Side note, if you are interested in a cool detail I recently found out about Goryo's Vengeance The text on the card reads "Exile it (the creature) at the beginning of the next end step." So, you can cast the spell on your opponents end step, and bring back Niv. You don't have to sacrifice him until the beginning of the next end step, so you get Niv for your whole turn. For Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind this doesn't really change much, but it makes starting the combo with Niv-Mizzet, Parun so much easier. When you start your turn, you'll have the mana to enchant him with Curiosity , and mana left over to cast an instant or sorcery. Even if you have no instants or sorceries in hand, all you have to do to start the combo is enchant him before you draw for turn. Then, draw for turn, and start the combo. Parun still isn't as efficient as the Firemind, but if you bring him back on your opponents end step, you can start the combo no problem.

I hope that was at least slightly interesting for ya. And thanks again, I'll let you know how testing the redundancy pans out!

I'm not a huge fan of Mark of the Vampire when compared to other modern enchantments- most of the non-boggle auras are 1 drops that replace themselves ( Rancor , Curious Obsession / Curiosity etc).

If you desperately need lifegain, specific sideboard options should be more reliable- Fountain of Renewal is decent.

I'd look at alternative counter sources for Thoughtbound Phantasm and try to back it up with other efficient 1 and 2 drop threats. Blue actually has a few of these which are pretty decent- Cloudfin Raptor , Benthic Biomancer , Cosi's Trickster , Dimir Spybug , Nivmagus Elemental and Thrummingbird are all worth testing. Backing them up with some Tezzeret's Gambit can push through a lot of damage when backed by your current disruption.

Are you purposely avoiding Ophidian Eye and Curiosity ?

BS-T on Lost - a challenge of ...

2 weeks ago

OK so I'd not been active on TO for a little while and after clearing up a bunch of notifications I popped over to my list of decks to find.... this nonsense:

I'd titled the list: "Lost".

Now. I'm pretty sure I've only stuck a 5c commander into the list because I had to put something, however, I now have no memory or idea what I was thinking of or where this was going - any thoughts on what my connection was!!??

1con1c97 on Niv Mizzet Commander Storm

I built a Budget Niv-Mizzet, Parun Combo EDH deck myself, take a look. Ophidian Eye works as another combo piece in the same way as Curiosity . I'm also using Dizzy Spell to as a tutor for Curiosity and Drift of Phantasms as a tutor for Ophidian Eye for even more redundancy.
