Gorgon Flail Discussion

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.

Running either Evolving Wilds and/or Terramorphic Expanse may be a good idea with so few 'duals'. I know with even just a 2 color budget deck, I can hit a string of just Islands or whatever and am hurting for something that produces the second color. I know an Izzet manabase is on the expensive side to build, so much demand for Steam Vents , Scalding Tarn , etc. so not a lot of budget options.

Basilisk Collar or Gorgon Flail are amazing on any of the Nivs.

Past in Flames might do some work once you have a few draw spells in the yard.

Some ideas:

Ophidian Eye and Tandem Lookout provide redundancy for Curiosity, and Dizzy Spell can transmute into it.

Arjun, the Shifting Flame and Mindmoil redraw your entire hand on every spell cast, and, Teferi's Puzzle Box makes everybody do it once per turn.

Day's Undoing , Diminishing Returns , and Time Reversal refill your library (well, everyone's) and draw 7.

Gorgon's Head or Gorgon Flail is hilarious when equipped to Niv-Mizzet.

My two cents:

(1) you need more evasion. You have a metric ton of +1/+1 counters, which is great... but only 2-3 things that give trample and only 1-2 other pieces of evasion. Against the wrong deck, you'll get chump blocked all day. These specific cards are mostly just examples, but consider adding unblockable ( Suspicious Bookcase , Whispersilk Cloak ); deathtouch ( Gorgon Flail , Nightshade Peddler ); trample / multi-purpose ( Loxodon Warhammer , Haunted Cloak ).

(2) you need more protection. Everyone will gun for your doggo, knowing that it's your whole win-con. You have a few things, but not enough IMO. Add more indestructible ( Hammer of Nazahn ) and hexproof ( Mask of Avacyn , Archetype of Endurance ).

I'd suggest culling some of the +1/+1 cards - especially one-shot like Battlegrowth . Also, shroud isn't great with voltron because you can't target/enchant/equip, so I'd lose Lightning Greaves and Aspect of Mongoose .

Looks like a fun deck!

After looking at you combat trick section, I would vote for replacing Krosan Vorine with Lowland Tracker . It does cost 1 more mana, but it has first strike. You pair that with Bow of Nylea , Basilisk Collar , or Gorgon Flail (other strong inclusions in a deck with Mirri) and now the Tracker is just straight removal.

Also, some other fun cards with Lure effects are Druid's Call , Saber Ants , and Broodhatch Nantuko .

Shamanic Revelation can be pretty potent card draw in a token deck as well. Yes you need a board state to get anything, but it has pretty high upside.
