Dragon Fodder and Krenko's Command are doing the same thing perhaps replacing one with Hordeling Outburst could be worthwhile.

You have Thought Reflection listed twice. Good spot to fit in another counter, say Disallow.

Some cards that have particularly good interaction with Niv:

Curiosity for additional card draw using his ping ability against players.

Basilisk Collar and/or Gorgon Flail deathtouch makes his ping lethal while gaining you a little life. I'd swap out Spinehorn Minotaur for Trinket Mage to fetch the Collar.

Riptide Laboratory to reuse some of those supporting wizards.

You could also use some more general removal spells:

Chaos Warp, Vandalblast, By Force, Curse of the Swine which is good because it exiles, Pongify [you don't care about the token], Blasphemous Act

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.

About 60% of the time I can get emrakul out turn 4 or 5. Possible turn 3 emrakul if the stars align if i have Dragon Fodder Indomitable Creativity and Infernal Plunge in my opening hand. As for token production as long as one doesnt get picked off 2 is all I generally make before emrakul comes out.

How did I manage to sneak that in there, Mortarpod?! I'll find a better replacement. Dragon Fodder for now until I find something better. Maybe a few more Satyrs from Theros: Beyond Death or Escape cards.

sergiodelrio on Red Deck W...ait, What?! (T2 Emrakul)

Rorolith first of all, thank you for actually playtesting it and giving some feedback!

Its funny that you mention it, because Legion's Landing  Flip, alongside Spiritual Visit and even Devastating Summons has been on my radar for this deck.

The upside is obvious, they cost 1 mana, and thus would enable more T2 Emrakul hand combinations, at least in theory. But this comes with some baggage. One problem is, that LL and SV cost white mana, which I might have T1, but might lose again once I Ritual. The other problem is, that the cards might not carry their weight, because I only get one thing from one card, as opposed to my other token producing spells giving me 2. Out of curiosity I will playtest offscreen with +2x Spiritual Visit , as I think it has the upper hand out of all the options, because it is instant and also has the splice ability, which can become relevant with itself and Desperate Ritual netting me some card advantage. For that I'll take out -1x Mountain and -1x Dragon Fodder . If I then conclude that this setup is beneficial, I'll change it here as well.

As for Emrakul, the Aeons Torn , 2 copies would actually be a lot worse here. See, you don't want to draw this card, and adding another copy just doubles the odds of drawing a dead card. Maybe an additional copy would make sense in the SB for some matchups, but idk. This is not something I'm looking into in this stage of tweaking the deck.

What I really desperately need is a sound Sideboard Strategy.

smackjack on Polymorph Deck (Advice welcome)

The problem with Polymorph is that your opponent can Lightning Bolt your token in response to counter it. Simic Keyrune fixes this as its the only Polymorph target with hexproof. Raise the Alarm is an instant speed Dragon Fodder , and would make you less dependent on red mana.

I'd suggest cutting the small burn spells like Lightning Bolt (which would be tantamount to heresy in any other format) because they're just not very impactful in edh. I'd suggest replacing them with mass burn spells like Blasphemous Act . Spells that don't hit flyers like Magmaquake and Molten Disaster are especially useful since Dragons are virtually all flyers. I'd also cut Hordeling Outburst , Dragon Fodder and Imminent Doom , since they don't really gel with what you're trying to do here. Instead I'd suggest either more ramp (like Wayfarer's Bauble and Burnished Hart ) or recovery cards, (such as Elixir of Immortality )
