Faerie Trickery

Tribal Instant — Faerie

Counter target non-Faerie spell. If that spell is countered this way, exile it instead of putting it into its owner's graveyard.

LiquidGaming if you are playing Faerie Trickery as a counterspell for the exile ability on it you might want to consider Dissipate and Void Shatter . Another counterspell I would HIGHLY recommend is Rewind . At first it seems good just slightly too expensive, but I'll just say from my experiences with this card it's a 10/10 as a counterspell. BTW, even if you don't add both Dissipate and Void Shatter to this list I would recommend you cut Faerie Trickery for Void Shatter only for a few very minimal benefits ( Tarmogoyf , Red Elemental Blast , Pyroblast , Iona, Shield of Emeria , etc). The only possible downside to Void Shatter that I will bring up is that you can't pitch it too Force of Will , but your mono blue so this will probably never cause an issue. If you do find this to be an issue I would still recommend you change Faerie Trickery to Dissipate for the very minimal benefit of slowing Tarmogoyf .

BTW, nice list and if you would like me to take the time to list any/all possible upgrades/suggestions for your list I would be more than happy to do so. Just let me know if you would like me to make these suggestions or not.

If you're not interested in Nightveil Sprite , then I would consider dropping Inkfathom Infiltrator for perhaps Sower of Temptation or Faerie Harbinger to grab exactly Oona's Blackguard , and then putting in Secluded Glen for more fast land. I have a deck that consistently gets fast mana with glen using a similar package. You could also add a Glen Elendra Liege for even more faeries.

If you're scared of reanimation decks, then Faerie Trickery is a card as well.

No Cryptic Command ? Seems better than some of the counterspells you've got in here. Also, I think Void Shatter is better than Faerie Trickery since it's less niche. Otherwise, +1. Reminds me of my Teferi, Temporal Archmage deck.

first thing Creeping Chill is not pauper legal and it can be used in this deck since its black, Expel from Orazca is not legal either.

good card for them to replace are :High Tide, Distant Melody, Airborne Aid, Shared Discovery, Mizzium Skin, Gigadrowse, Sage's Row Denizen, Rhystic Study, any of the cantrips. theres a bit of protection, control and card draw. but i suggest you take out Sudden Storm, Aerial Formation, Piracy Charm, Hubris, Jace's Scrutiny, Refocus, Reach Through Mists, Tidal Bore. for more useful cards like Gush, Hoodwink, Man-o'-War, Snap, Volrath's Curse, Relic of Progenitus and more counters like Dream Fracture, Faerie Trickery, Arcane Denial, Logic Knot oh and See Beyond seems like a good enough hand filter.

hkhssweiss on Niv-Mizzet Card Draw

FrasierC alright can definitely help you out here. There is an amazing combo with Niv-Mizzet that essentially lets you win on the spot, however the damage Niv does is limited only to the amount of cards you have in your library. The key cards are Curiosity and Ophidian Eye, once that enchants Niv it starts going back and forth in accumulating card draw for you. Now the problem here is that you will most likely playing in pods of 4 so if everyone is at perfect life when this goes off that means you have to deal 120 points of damage, but you only have let's say 70 cards left in your library that's 50 more cards you have to draw. The solution to this is cards like Time Reversal which let's you shuffle your hand and grave back, and retriggering Niv to draw your deck again.

Now you know the combo, here are some budget card suggestions that you can fill up your deck with:

Interaction:

Delay, Chaos Warp, Swan Song, Negate, Arcane Denial, Mystic Confluence, Vandalblast, Capsize, Faerie Trickery, Dissipate, Counterflux

These cards aren't to expensive and for their cost it does exactly what you need them to do.

Card Draw/Refill/Niv Synergy:

Tolarian Winds, Winds of Change, Windfall, Time Reversal, Day's Undoing, Pull from Tomorrow, Dig Through Time, Treasure Cruise, Molten Psyche, Ponder, Preordain, Thoughtscour, Serum Visions

These cards are for the synergy with Niv as well as early game card draw to refill your hand or can be used in conjunction with Niv and Curiosity/Ophidian Eye.

Hope that helps!

Hello SMASHER101 I have looked at your decklist and have a couple of suggestions for cuts/swaps:)

First Opt could be cut for Preordain as it's just better all around.

As for counterspells I think the following could go:

Dismiss, Exclude, Essence Scatter, Faerie Trickery, Logic Knot, and Spell Crumple these counterspells are just not very powerful and seeing as you have so many in your deck cutting six would barely hurt your ability to counter masses of spells.

Dragonlord's Prerogative could go as its ability is a bit underwhelming.

Nagging Thoughts and Capsize are also possible cuts.

Hope this helps happy tapping:)
