Firemind's Foresight Discussion
2 days ago
i would suggest Fall of the Titans over both Gut Shot and Lightning Bolt. i feel it much more flexible as it can be used as removal and to finish a player with low life total as well as be part of the infinite combo and tutorable by Firemind's Foresight

In the forum you asked about Seething Song, I do like it, and it goes infinite pretty easy with Reiterate. It's only CMC3 if you don't have Reiterate so it usually doesn't hurt you. Being all is not optimal, but can pay buyback, and costs efficiently. I would keep it in. Although Pyretic Ritual can too.
I play more of a copy/spellstorm strategy so a little different than you, but the deck looks good. In my deck description, I have lots of tutors and combo/synergy interactions if your interested. +1.

Bigant1: You should probably consolidate your forum threads into a "Help with Mizzix" Thread. It stops the forums from getting flooded all with help for the same deck. It also means that it provides people with more context about other changes which are happening.
On the topic of Seething Song - it's ok but I don't think it warrants a spot. It works in comob with Reiterate but you'd be better with Pyretic Ritual as it still net gains you one mana per cycle (assuming you can buyback for free) but can be fetched with Firemind's Foresight.
For ramp, I would recommend adding more mana rocks - you currently have very little in the way fo ramp for Mizzix which can make starving the deck of your commander quite easy.
Side note - I would look at either adding Lightning Bolt or more one drop card advantage spells for the Firemind's Foresight package. Currently you only have Brainstorm to dig with and if that's in the graveyard you have to have your mana sink in hand. Whispers of the Muse is very good with Mizzix as it can effectively be : Draw a card.

Thanks for the second great explanaton, and sorry for the late reply! Life's hectic. I understand the view on the rituals, being non-interactable. Last week, this was clearly shown in a local EDH tournament where someone just went ahead and played solitaire for a good 20 minutes. Felt kind of bad, so I'm questioning my inclusion of those in my deck as well. Some payoff cards seem to be cool, been thinking about Firemind's Foresight for the fun of it.
As to Mind's Desire, I'm currently on the fence about this card. I actually love this card and the janky combo's you can pull off with it. I actually play this in combination with Eye of the Storm, which is crazy when you're chaining scry's, draws and spells here and there. There's been a game where I've been able to storm infinitely due to a play of said Desire, not being able to win the game on the spot. A second spell was cast that turn, mine, and the stormcount went up to over 120. (We actually played it out for the lulz and it was hilarious). But, it can be a nasty one. I'm all for including it. It's the one storm card that's not a guaranteed win, in my humble opinion. And, let's not forget, you need some inevitability, it's a great way to win the game if there's over 15 turns in a game and things just stall.

Thanks for the suggestion. I've been looking for a reason to get Reset in, just wasn't sure if I needed the redundancy. With a Fall of the Titans definitely another viable tutorable Firemind's Foresight combo for EOT action. With all the other Infinite combos, Fall of the Titans won't be a hinderance.

Love the deck, I've been looking for a good way to turn my Mizzix more towards storm. However, you say that Fall of the Titans is too high CMC, but I have it included in my deck as it can turn Firemind's Foresight into a full three card combo tutor with Reiterate + Reset, allowing you to make infinite mana as soon as you get priority on your opponents turn, then use that mana to burn them out

I've run Mind's Desire it's amazing. I've also ran Ignite Memories. The reason they are not in the build is 1) I don't like the randomness of them (in an Infinite Storm situation, it's just another win-con of which I have others, but it is one way) 2) Outside of an Infinite Storm situation it's high CMC and low ability as a "stand on it's own". As a guide I value cards that have utility outside of the combos (although some don't), I will agree this one is worth it, just didn't make my cut 3) I don't actually need the Storm ability in an Infinite Storm situation anyway, and it bother some other players, when I factored that against my needs to win, I didn't end up needing it.
Spellseeker is fabulous, Tutor a Merchant Scroll and then a Firemind's Foresight to Tutor Reiterate + Comet Storm + Mystical Tutor > Turnabout | Infinite Mana + Infinite Damage. Thanks for the excellent suggestion, I'll try and figure out where she slots in later this week, also being a Wizard is a bonus, perfect!

Thought I would mention, I've found Reality Spasm works as good as Turnabout but takes a little more mana to kick-off, doubles chance of drawing the Infinite mana enabler, and can tutor the other half.
Also, as an alternative to Reiterate I also run Nivix Guildmage. As you can imagine, any combination of Turnabout or Reality Spasm + Reiterate or Nivix Guildmage, all work together, increased consistency of drawing into it, or being able to draw some parts and tutor the missing parts. Imperial Recruiter can Tutor Nivix Guildmage so can Muddle the Mixture out of interest, and both work on 3 other creatures (Muddle the Mixture works on any other CMC2 card as well).
Mana Geyser also can go Infinite mana if you play in 4-player pods regularly.
Also with Nivix Guildmage,
If one of the Islands is a Steam Vents you can get Infinite Mana. Built in Tutor as well thanks to Frantic Search. If you don't have High Tide an Izzet Boilerworks gives you the ability to use Frantic Search to Tutor any card, just doesn't give you Infinite Mana, unless you Tutor to your High Tide and cast of course (it's an instant!).
I would recommend Disallow it can handle lots of interactions people need to start their Infinite Combos, maybe delaying them a turn, or solving the issue all together.
Mana Crypt is a nice mana accelerator, quite pricey though, a Fabricate makes a nice Mana Crypt tutor (or possibly Net + with 2 Experience, can be used on a Sol Ring too or Thought Vessel if you need the no maximum hand size for some reason.
Jace, the Mind Sculptor? He's like another Cantrip.
I tried Metallurgic Summonings, I found Docent of Perfection Flip to be more utility, it's secondary ability is good but not great. Some people play Talrand, Sky Summoner, I wouldn't. To be honest, I know it's CMC7 so doesn't make any sense, but Sphinx-Bone Wand wins me games, if I can get any type of Reiterate going it's a win-con. If you have the Blue Sun's Zenith or something in your hand already then ok, but it's like another really bad Guttersnipe.
