Illusory Ambusher Discussion

ArchangelAlchemist on Niv-MIzzet Competitive Duel Commander

Is True-Name Nemesis allowed in duel commander? Fog Bank and Guard Gomazoa are good defenders and Illusory Ambusher is my last good creature suggestion that works with your deck style.

I know you are interested in new instants and sorceries, but you could upgrade your creatures to have more synergy with your deck...

Runechanter's Pike, Young Pyromancer, Spellheart Chimera, Niblis of Frost, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Docent of Perfection  Flip

IMHO these are the creatures you are running that could be changed:

Arjun, the Shifting Flame, Gigantoplasm, Illusory Ambusher, Psychosis Crawler, Sturmgeist, Surrakar Spellblade

Mutant's Prey can be helpful for getting rid of threats. When it comes to dropping cards for others in your maybeboard, let me comment on that.

  1. Broodbirth Viper-doesn't help you much. It gives you decent draw, but it doesn't even give you xp for it's clones.

  2. Caller of the Pack-too expensive, no xp, not even a bonus from dealing damage

  3. Illusory Ambusher-really expensive for what it does, you will only get 1 draw from it in the beginning and it isn't good enough to waste a turn putting coutners on it

  4. Will-Forged Golem-expensive and doesn't give you any benefits

  5. Second Harvest-this seems to only be useful some of the time.

  6. Day of the Dragons-will get rid of all of your hard fought counters-when your creatures re-renter, yes you can get a crap ton of xp and etb triggers, btu all the buffs you put on them go away and the tokens don't come back. a single Declaration in Stone removes your hard work and the enchantment is still on the field.

Stuff to move over from Mizzix:

Arjun, the Shifting Flame, Thought Reflection, Illusory Ambusher, Thought Vessel, Mystic Confluence

Other things to add:

Trail of Evidence (keep the card draw coming!), Mnemonic Wall

Counters (you don't need to run all of them, but pick and choose...these and the ones you already have are excellent):

Rewind, Desertion, Hinder, Spell Crumple, Faerie Trickery, Dismiss, Foil, Discombobulate, Last Word, Time Stop, Counterflux, Izzet Charm, Suffocating Blast, Summary Dismissal, Disdainful Stroke, Confirm Suspicions
