Barito on Flicks and Battle Tricks - Niv-Mizzet Reborn (EDH)

17 hours ago

Hey grodriguez0419, thanks for the support and feedback! I have a couple reasons for now going with Deadeye Navigator for the deck. The first is with the creature costing 6 CMC to play and 2 to actually trigger the blink. This is effectively 8 mana for 1 blink which is very expensive, and it does not get to creature level blink until I dump about 12 mana into it. The second reason is that Niv pulls in ~4 cards every time he blinks, so post Niv I’m usually wanting to play at least two of those cards immediately (creatures with ETB effects, no max hand size cards, removal) and don’t have the mana to spare to throw down 6 for Deadeye. Most of the spells in this deck are 2-4 CMC so I can throw down multiple each turn. Lastly since he is not a guild color I found him more undesirable than usual. It is nice that he is a 5/5 creature though and I may end up adding him back eventually!

Xanins on Inexorable Ooze

I agree, the synergy with the evolve creatures is there ( Fathom Mage especially), BUT.. I get the same thing via Deadeye Navigator 's bounce ability + Biogenic Ooze (for the most part).

Additionally, I can reduce the cost of his activated ability with Training Grounds or Biomancer's Familiar to just . And also, I could reset Fathom Mage 's counters with a bounce as well.

So, I'd get fatter oozes from Ooze Flux , but it costs me more mana and is conditional on me having counters to manipulate. Sticking to just Deadeye Navigator keeps my combo engine smaller and easier to handle. Also, I can tutor for Deadeye, but not for Ooze Flux .

Master Biomancer Intrigues me, though. He seems especially useful as a general lord/ pump. He also synergizes with Coat of Arms , acting like a second Arcane Adaptation . Any ideas how I could fit him in?

Blue is the second-best flicker color, and you're hard-pressed to find something better in Commander than Deadeye Navigator and Parallax Tide for flickering permanents out (Which is important if you're planning on playing Boardwipes that double as LD). As for Indestructible, Soul of New Phyrexia is probably the best you'll get asides That Which Was Taken .

I would suggest 2 card infinite combos like Mikaeus, the Unhallowed and Triskelion . Either that or have cards like Palinchron and Deadeye Navigator for infinite mana in your deck and then have cards like Oona, Queen of the Fae or Walking Ballista in your sideboard for the spawnsire win

This is my more competitive take on Animar, Soul of Elements ! This deck is still in baby stages so please keep that in mind. ATM I am looking for any way to speed up my process of getting my value engine going. A huge combo that is helping me win, by playtesting, is getting out either Palinchron or Peregrine Drake and attaching them to Deadeye Navigator . And yes, I need to update my description so just ignore that and go with what's in this comment for help please.

Deadeye Navigator + Peregrine Drake = infinite mana

Drake + Archaeomancer + Displace and/or Ghostly Flicker is also infinite mana.

These would also give you etb triggers for anything relevant to creatures like your Bramble Sovereign

NV_1980 Thanks for some of the advice. I just recently bought a box of BB and i'm hoping to open one of those sweet Doubling Season I love the Biovisionary Cheese wins that I'm able to pull out of no where, and even when it doesn't work. Coping a random spell/creature 4-15ish times will generally put you in a considerable lead. Both Clever Impersonator & Deadeye Navigator have been on my buy list. Bloom Tender would be great but definitely out of budget at the moment.
