Curse of Verbosity Discussion

Changes made on 9/26/19:

OUT: - Traverse the Outlands , - Kavu Predator , - Swords to Plowshares , - Privileged Position , - 1x Forest , - 1x Plains , - 2x Island

IN: + Gilded Lotus , + Fellwar Stone , + Curse of Verbosity , + Recurring Insight , + Misty Rainforest , + Flooded Strand , + Hinterland Harbor , + Brushland

Further refined the mana base by removing some basics. Removed Traverse the Outlands in favor of Gilded Lotus since the lotus makes mana the turn it is played, and we can play less basics this way.

Even though I would love to see it shine, Kavu Predator got the axe. I just don't see him having much of an impact.

Well for more card draw spells to dig into those spells you needs I would include Pull from Tomorrow and Stroke of Genius .

For mana ramp I would add in Smothering Tithe , I’d get ahold of one anyways even if you don’t put it in the deck since it is just such a good card.

Sphere of Safety is another Ghostly prison like effect to make attacking more difficult for your opponents.

A few cards I also really like and would get attacks to go somewhere else is Curse of Verbosity as well as Crown of Doom

How about you include Vow of Flight and Vow of Duty as well as Curse of Verbosity and Curse of Vitality to get your opponents to target each other

Creatures to cut:

Merfolk Looter - doesnt give overall card advantage for 2 mana + only once each turn

Seafloor Oracle - not that many merfolk attacking

Merfolk Branchwalker - doesnt drop a land and only draws if land revealed

Deep-Sea Kraken - only a 6/6 for either 10 mana or a long delay that can be prepared for

Merfolk Mistbinder - not enough merfolk to make the +1/+1 impactful

maybe creatures:

Inkwell Leviathan - 9 mana for a beatstick, no real extra effects but several keywords

Cursecatcher - 1 drop potential counter, but only costs 1 to stop it

Reef Worm - useful blocker but requires dying to be highly useful - could be better to use for 3 mana

Merfolk Trickster - can stop ability based creature going off in a turn, but only once till end of turn - situationally useful

instants to cut:

Grapple with the Past - not much other non-land graveyard interaction so limiting

debate on most the counterspells - better ones in slot but depends on price/availability

enchantments to cut:

Hadana's Climb  Flip - not the biggest impact for in damage difference and takes 3 turns to flip

The Mending of Dominaria - not enough sacking of lands to make value, can lose you other cards

maybe enchantments:

Curse of Verbosity - helps opponents too, may be better in slot but still potentially decent card draw

Ordeal of Nylea - 3 turns to activate so slow but gives double land drop

maybe sorceries to cut:

Beneath the Sands - better in slot for 3 mana maybe

Karn's Temporal Sundering - again, better extra turns in slot - depends on price/availability

Thinking about replacing Curse of Verbosity with Infiltration Lens since it's an extra artifact in the 99 and easier to recur.

I'm with Nexys here, I'm loving this deck. I might suggest some curses! It'll lead to a really fun dynamic, and attacks will be much more frequent. Cards like Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist, (Kraum, Ludevic's Opus is also good), Curse of the Nightly Hunt is devastating, Goblin Spymaster serves much the same purpose as the above, Curse of Opulence gets the chaos going early, Curse of Verbosity is mutually beneficial, and Minds Aglow, Tempt with Vengeance, and Tempt with Reflections can all help you feed off of the group's efforts.

Hi Tomagotchi, yup i do agree with Sinken, but my gosh thats the most anti fun playgroup i ever met XD.

But then, if youre playing commander its a 4 player games in a 100 deck setup, meaning there will be approximately 40-50 spells with a recurring castable commander per player (35+- lands, 10+- mana rocks), thus the game would have a maximum of 200++ spells. A 15 counter spell, well 30 if you can bounce it back with Snapcaster Mage or ect, seems redundant no?. a different story if you play 1v1 commander or if you're playing Baral, Chief of Compliance as the commander.

So essentially counterspell is great if you used it at the right time on the right spell, but over counterspelling spell in a commander deck might be a waste of card slot.

a few suggestion comes to mind,

Build a fortress:

Propaganda Curse of Opulence or Curse of Verbosity Fatespinner ect.

Might give you time by minimizing incentive for opponents to attack you,

Be the threat or be full control until you have your combo pieces

How about playing storm count instead, since Niv-Mizzet, Parun says whenever you play spell you draw a card than deals 1 damage. Storm is a spell on its own meaning if your storm counter is 5 you get a copy of that spell 5x, thus niv will proc 5 times, and if your friend want to counter the spell they have to use 5 counter spell thus niv will proc 5 more times.

A few storm card; Flusterstorm Grapeshot Hindering Touch Brain Freeze

Keep in mind Braids of Fire only give you that mana on upkeep, not throughout your turn.

i cant fully explain everything in the comments but heres my niv deck Niv-Mizzet, the Wizard Lord, it evolve in a way throughout my commander career.

Hope it helps, Go Izzet league!!!!
