Deep Freeze Discussion

Some cards that have particularly good interaction with Niv:
Curiosity for additional card draw using his ping ability against players.
Riptide Laboratory to reuse some of those supporting wizards.
You could also use some more general removal spells:
Direct Current doesn't do enough to warrant inclusion. Despite its efficiency, you very rarely see Lightning Bolt or similar effects getting played in EDH. The size of the creatures that get played and joint pool of 120 starting life relegate these effects to other formats. Dragon Fodder doesn't really do much either but if its a flavor inclusion, then keep, maybe Niv needs minions to fetch him things or just wants snack food handy. Stealth Mission would probably be better served becoming something like Lazotep Plating. Capture Sphere might be better as Deep Freeze if opposing commanders having activated abilities that don't require tapping. I know I wouldn't care if Sphere hit my Tasigur, the Golden Fang
I have a deck using this same commander if you want more ideas.

Great deck! I do think that Ley/Lore Weaver is probably the best Commander in PDH to date, especially when it comes to combo-control gameplay.
The fact that you have access to these combo pieces in your command zone leaves me wondering why you run so many extra "copies" of them in your mainboard. I am especially curious about the land untappers, since they are generally pretty bad when it comes to ramp. You can afford to cut out most of these cards in exchange for more draw/counters/better ramp, in my opinion. The only ones I think are worth keeping are Arbor Elf and Voyaging Satyr.
Aside from that, I have a few suggestions. Jace's Erasure might be worth running in order to not have to give your opponent the card draw to mill them out with Lore Weaver.
If you do plan on keeping all your untappers, I would suggest Crashing Drawbridge . Not only will it let you go mana positive on many of your untappers depending on how many auras you have, but it also lets you instantly-win with Sprout Swarm.
Quirion Ranger can untap your untappers and give you another land drop and ramp on its own.
Deep Analysis Should definitely be in here if you're playing cards like Tamiyo's Epiphany.
Mystic Sanctuary is an easy inclusion with your flicker sub-theme and bouncing.
Pulse of Murasa is a card that sees a lot of play in tron decks in regular pauper and is a great way to get back lost combo pieces and give you a bit of life. It's also a great card to get back with Archaeomancer and ilk.
It's always nice to have a back-up Flicker to combo off with. Displace Fits the bill perfectly.
Some graveyard hate would be nice. I like Night Soil in green decks.
Fathom Seer does a decent Gush impression, if you're looking for more card draw.

There are some sweet just overall cool cards in this deck, as of right now my understanding is that, cast tons of enchantments, use Tusava as a draw engine, and just win by the enchantments themselves. Removal and responses are a necessity in every deck, and you seem to have more than you need, considering this is an enchantment deck. I suggest cutting almost all the counterspells except one, according to your choice. As said above interaction is must in almost every EDH deck, yet you have exessivly to many of them. I would also cut some removal, if you were to have removal, I would put in a form of enchantments, such as Darksteel Mutation , which you have, or Deep Freeze or something of that sort, even though the instant speed of instant card are always nice, I feel like enchantments in forms of removal would be better. Next considerable enchantments to cut. I would cut the theft enchantments, considering how much people hate gettijg their stuff stolen, and also I think you should use most enchantments to benefit yourselves, just an opinion, considering who you play with or your meta. Sheltered Aerie and Wild Growth are not good, even if they are enchantments. They could be easily cut, or replaced by better cards. Same goes for Dawn's Reflection , or Fertile Ground , If you like, I would keep about a third of the "Land" enchantments that tap for extra mana, and add some other form of ramp such as Birds of Paradise . As for the creatures, Nylea's Colossus CMC is quite high, and overall I think should be cut.

Hey, nice work with this one! I would consider running Thought Collapse and Bolt Bend in here instead of Deep Freeze and one of Mass Manipulation , Finale of Promise and Finale of Revelation . These cards have a huge CMC for the low number of lands you are playing. Thought Collapse will also work well with your Jace, Wielder of Mysteries . I'm building a Niv-Mizzet, Parun commander deck for my son shortly, so thanks for publishing this, it's given me ideas for the build.

Best creature type is Goblin. They're like cockroaches, they everywhere and can even survive in the shadow of tyrannical dragons and nuclear winter. Plus, they're so cute.
Dawww, he's so cold and cute! You just can't beat that.

Hey, I like the changes. Nice job, you found several good cards in your collection.
You still need to cut two cards to make 100. My suggestions of cuts to consider are Selective Snare and Power Taint . Snare is very situational and a sorcery. Unless you're against a lot of tribal decks in your playgroup it's not worth playing. Especially since you're already playing Icy Blast which is the same mana cost, an instant and can target any amount of creatures. The 2 life drain of Taint is not worth playing in 40 life Commander. Your opponent can just ignore it or if they want to pay the 2 mana to prevent the 2 life.
Other cards to consider cutting are:
- Spellbook : you have Thought Vessel which gives you no max hand size as well as ramp, don't also need Spellbook. Another no max hand size card that also gives you mana to consider is Reliquary Tower . It doesn't take up a valuable deck spot since it's a land.
- Brine Elemental : not worth the mana cost.
- Fog Bank : a strategy is to attack with unblockable creatures, Bank can't attack and has no power.
- Claustrophobia : very lackluster removal spell since all it does is tap the creature, both Imprisoned in the Moon and Deep Freeze are the same mana cost and much better.

There are better cards than Pacifism (which is not in standard but card s like it are) because that does not help you because of the static abilities are in play and since they are not activated abilities Lawmage's Binding and other similar white cards not in standard will not help.
Black has a few things as while with removal from hand but overall I am thinking splashing blue in a deck is the goto color
I also Forgot Ashiok, Dream Render is pretty darn good if you can get him down and mill them

Gilded Drake , Song of the Dryads , Lignify , Kasmina's Transformation, Imprisoned in the Moon , Darksteel Mutation , Humility , Metamorphic Alteration , Deep Freeze , Nevermore , New Blood , Ritual of the Machine , Helm of Possession , and so many other cards are good not just against Mairsil, but against any problematic commander.
