When I was playing it, I noticed it had a lot of X spells which I don't think interact with Mizzix well. I'd try ditching a couple of those and some higher cost creatures to speed up your early game. Then I also added a couple things that should help you keep a board state.

Narset's Reversal

Expropriate

Arcane Signet

Rhystic Study

Impulse

Faithless Looting

Rise from the Tides

Cyclonic Rift

Leyline of Anticipation

Metallurgic Summonings

Chaos Warp

Baral, Chief of Compliance

JojoQ few things here.-

  1. What format is this for? (You have 1 to many for constructed formats)
  2. Epic Experiment Would be great for this deck (if within format that you're playing in)
  3. Goblin Electromancer

Bolo33 on Please Help - cheap deck ...

Standard. Cheap?

That's hard to bear, for most. The thing I do to keep my decks cheap is avoid Shock Lands( Steam Vents and the like) and cards like Fabled Passage . I'm not denying their value, but are they really 10-20 times more valuable (in the game) than a card like Temple of Epiphany ? They both tap, and both give an add on.

Also, Sleeves exist, to protect cards. Cards can be bought cheaper when they are in a less-than-new condition. And foils are also a bit unnecessary, if your goal is to stay cheap.

Now for an actual idea. I was looking at the cards you liked at the top of this post. Pteramander and Crackling Drake are both big on instants, and getting Humongous as a result of them. Enigma Drake has already rotated, it is no longer standard legal. Two other red and blue cards that get Gargantuan as a result of instants/sorceries are Erratic Cyclops and Wee Dragonauts . Cards that help you cast such spells are Goblin Electromancer , and (sorta) Spellkeeper Weird . The instants/sorceries you want to cast with this can be damaging type, card advantage type, orcreature buff/debuff, or even the first two of these combined. (Counterspells are essential, too)

For Damage, Shock , Lava Coil and Electrodominance are good. Card-Drawing, Opt , Winged Words , and Chemister's Insight all draw and give card advantage. Infuriate , Sure Strike , and Sonic Assault both buff/debuff. Ral's Outburst both damages and gives card advantage. For a damaging deck, you may want Electrostatic Field . For a card-drawing deck, The Magic Mirror and Niv-Mizzet, Parun make a great combo. If you want to simply buff your creatures to victory, make sure to keep the pumping creatures.

Counterspells are essential, I find Quench is surprisingly useful. Ionize is great too, and everyone seems to love Mystical Dispute too, although it is pricey. Convolute is a cheaper (monetary-wise) thing to use.

I hope this helped you decide on cards!

Now we get to the hard part. What to cut. Let's start with what doesn't mesh with the theme of spell copying; Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir and Glen Elendra Archmage are both better served in a combo/control shell where you need to protect a specific series of cards, the benefit of spell copying is the flexibility and resilience to allow some things to miss because everything becomes a game ender once its been copied a couple of times; Brudiclad, Telchor Engineer and Second Harvest are designed for HEAVY token decks where you're making ALOT of small tokens in concert with a few threatening ones; Animar, Soul of Elements , Fathom Mage , Temur Ascendancy , and Warstorm Surge are all good for a creature focused strategy, but for a SPELL copy deck most of our creatures exist to accelerate our mana ( dorks , Goblin Electromancer , and STE ) or as silver bullets for specific problems ( Terastodon , Acidic Slime , and Bane of Progress ) which tend to be too small of a portion of our deck or too small stat-wise to use these effects to their fullest; Krosan Grip cannot be copied because of split second; Time Stop is so niche you're better off running Counterflux ; Melek, Izzet Paragon is just bad,I love him but he's too inconsistent and without alot of top-deck manipulation ( Sensei's Divining Top , Sylvan Library , Mirri's Guile , Scroll Rack ) you can't reliably get the spells you want to copy; Verdant Confluence is easily the weakest of the confluences in these colors and none of its effects are particularly spectacular even after one or two copies; Starstorm is a very expensive Blasphemous Act with cycling; Brainstorm is the weakest card draw spell you have and never feels good unless it's setting up a Kefnet combo.

Tzilakatzin on Niv Mizzet Parun Burn them All

I honestly don't think you should use those XCMC burnspels because Niv daddy already makes shitloads of damage, i haven't try the orientation that you are picking but i found quite easy to get the wheel going with tons of Pyretic Ritual s alongside with the Goblin Electromancer s effect so, for that, i replaced the U CMC spells such as Opt with the rituals, because i draw a card and generate mana at the same time on one side and are quite redundant with Niv's ability and you don't get the electromancer's 1 mana discount on the other side. What i already said can be discussed but what cannot be is the absence of the following cards:

Basilisk Collar & Gorgon Flail : equipped with Niv dady or Goblin Sharpshooter you can kill almost any creature on the field Grafted Exoskeleton : you can equip this to a Guttersnipe type of card (including Niv daddy) and you can almost kill al the opponents in one turn (with powerfull cards such as High Tide Firebrand Archer & Thermo-Alchemist : with those you can draw A LOT OF CARDS alongside with Curiosity and allows you to not only save it for the time you wanna combo out with Niv daddy.

Also you will want to get all of those 2 CMC mana artifacts that give U/R as possible because this deck is so mana-color-intensive (begining with Niv).

I have other suggestions but i dont quite have the time nor i remember the name of the cards. Awesome deck and i take note of some of your interesting picks such as Torbran, Thane of Red Fell among others.

Some number of Baral, Chief of Compliance or Goblin Electromancer seem like they could be good adds since they make your counter spells.... Counterspell . Then you could even run Lightning Strike as removal and it'd be just like good ol' Bolt. Fumarole has never been kind to me and tapped lands hurt sometimes so maybe cut 1 for the last sulfur falls. Other than that it looks really fun! Let me know if those work in practice like they do in theory lol. Good luck!
