@ vasarto77 Nifty tid bit about the Mystic Top combo lines: there are a number of easy ways to generate infinite mana with them after drawing the whole deck that are relatively compact and/or include other cards that can be independently useful.
After assembling the Mystic Forge, Top, Random Cost Reducer part of the engine and drawing the whole deck, for example. Elixir of Immortality + Dark Ritual + Lotus Petal generates infinite mana of any color when looping the Elixir with those cards and using the Mystic Top engine to redraw them. Provided the cost reduction card actually is Helm of Awakening the red Rituals can also manage the same loop. If you can get to artifact cost reduction totaling at least 3 then the Ramos mana rocks ( Eye of Ramos , etc) can also manage the same infinite mana loop. Any of these types of methods are usually able to begin from a very small amount of available mana or even without any mana available aside from what those pieces themselves can provide. The engine, when constructed in that type of way, also offers an easy win condition as the engine loops to generate infinite mana and draw also infinitely replenish the deck allowing infinite castings of any particular card that might be able to kill opponents, such as an unassuming Lightning Bolt .

What are your wincons? No offense, but it looks like this deck was thrown together randomly. It seems like you have too many counterspells, so getting rid of those for a Solemn Simulacrum, Gilded Lotus, Wayfarer's Bauble, Walking Atlas Expedition Map, Sol Ring, Sky Diamond, Eye of Ramos, Commander's Sphere, Darksteel Ingot, Coldsteel Heart, and other artifact ramp cards could be useful. You might need to ditch some islands for ramp, so only get rid of a few. If you put in that much ramp, you could use your commander's ability to draw everyone cards as an excuse for no one to target you, draw a ton of cards, (Spellbook and Thought Vessel will keep you from discarding) then cast an eldrazi titan Emrakul, the Promised End, Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger, Kozilek, Butcher of Truth, Void Winnower, Desolation Twin, or some others of your choice. Other good creatures include Darksteel Colossus and Blightsteel Colossus. You don't have to run all of them but the more you run the more consistent your deck is. You could also put in infinite mana combos such as Rings of Brighthearth and Basalt Monolith (the combo can be confusing check out Infinite Colorless Mana Turn 1 for an explanation) or Isochron Scepter imprinted with Dramatic Reversal + any combinations of mana rocks that produce a total of 3 mana.

Yea, i feel you, niv is quite hard to cast, esp. the parrun ed. is bonkers
i suggest not to put in more lands, but more on mana ramps/rocks that produce and/or , because you can only put 1 land per turn, but casting an artifact will give you more benefit in the next turn.
- Commander's Sphere
- Obelisk of Grixis
- Astral Cornucopia
- Star Compass
- Coldsteel Heart
- Izzet Cluestone
- Jeskai Banner or Sultai Banner
- Eye of Ramos and/or Heart of Ramos
or even multi mana lands,
or artifact tutors card:
or you can go full control deck, put in alot of board control spell (board wipes), board wipes is good for your deck because you dont have many creature in play. combine with a passive card draws engine (2-3 card per turn, meaning land drop would be easier to come by).
Then if you think you have all your pieces together start putting in some pressure on the board, if not stall the game XD (negotiating and stuff)
Board wipe artifact:
Hope it helps,

Been testing a competitive build of Niv-Mizzet, Parun lately - Here are a few thoughts.
Could be playing more rituals. They cast Niv earlier, combo with Niv, and are good with PiF/Engine.
Personally am still unsure on what the correct build for Niv is - I could easily be wrong on most of these thoughts. The list I'm working on also needs a lot of tuning and a few expensive pieces like Candelabra and Twister.

Wow, nearly all of those cards are amazing! I do not have time to comment on all of them, but it is nice to finally have cards of Taigam and O-Kagachi, two characters who were very important to the stories of the blocks in which they appeared. As awesome as O-Kagachi is, why is he a dragon? Nothing in the story suggested that he was a dragon, so he should be only a spirit, in my mind (not that I am complaining, because that allows him to work in a dragon-themed deck).
Chrosis and Intet are being reprinted, again, but still no Dromar? Will he ever been reprinted?
Wasitora is amazing, and I must definitely put her into my red/black/green deck; perhaps she could replace Broodmate Dragon, as she is superior to it in almost every way.
Has Ramos ever been mentioned in the story, before? That name sounds very familiar, but I cannot recall where I have heard it, before; is he the same Ramos from the Ramos cycle (i.e., Heart of Ramos, Eye of Ramos, etc)?
The Ur-Dragon is as powerful as its name suggests it should be, but 9 mana is too low for a 10/10 creature with those awesome abilities. It should, at the very least, cost 11 mana for it to be balanced, in my mind.
If these are cards from one of the decks, I am now very excited to see the rest of this set. I can hardly wait until previews for it officially begin!

Wow those are such beautiful flavor cards that could go in, especially Reef Worm which seems like a perfect analog for stunted wurms. If this was a purely flavor deck, I would play Elixir of Immortality too as The Water of Life and Eye of Ramos to represent the Fremen eyes. But alas, flavor must be sacrificed for playability and this deck was originally a tribal wizards deck and I've only begun ascribing Dune-themes to it in the last couple weeks. Azami, Lady of Scrolls is definitely a Reverend Mother of the Bene Gesserit though. I would play Desert too of course but it just doesn't do enough in this deck and Wurmcoil Engine takes a slot that would just be better served by having a wizard in it. There aren't enough ways to abuse him as in a deck for instance. Thanks for the upvote and sharing in the Dune-love.
He who controls the spice controls the universe. aka Teferi totally controls the spice since he makes you veritably the only one that can respond to anything.
