multimedia on Izzet Niv-Mizzet? (Help with cuts needed!!)

4 days ago

Hey, wow cutting 61 cards is not easy, good luck with doing it.

Here's 36 cards to consider cutting first:

  • Bonus Round
  • Chain Reaction
  • Grapeshot
  • Inner Fire
  • Invoke the Firemind
  • Mana Geyser
  • Rite of Replication
  • Spelltwine
  • Nezahal, Primal Tide
  • Desertion
  • Disdainful Stroke
  • Expansion / Explosion
  • Firemind's Foresight
  • Foil
  • Fury Storm
  • Ionize
  • Peer Through Depths
  • Pyretic Ritual
  • Desperate Ritual
  • Radical Idea
  • Increasing Vengeance
  • Seething Song
  • Sinister Sabotage
  • Pull from Tomorrow
  • Summary Dismissal
  • Psychic Corrosion
  • Metallurgic Summonings
  • Venser's Journal
  • Spellbook
  • Izzet Locket
  • Aetherflux Reservoir
  • Comet Storm
  • Dissolve
  • Fateful Showdown
  • Forbid
  • Insidious Will

There's a few expensive price cards already here such as some lands, Study and Rift, but the majority of deck looks like a budget deck therefore other than cards that are already here I'm not suggesting any cards over $6. Exception if you're looking for powerful nonbudget card upgrades are Consecrated Sphinx, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip and Dack Fayden. These cards are amazing with Niv-Mizzet and they don't break the bank like Snapcaster Mage does. To continue my advice here are the budget cards that I feel are auto-includes.

Creatures, you're right to play a small amount of creatures instead focus on instants and sorceries:

  • Baral, Chief of Compliance
  • Goblin Electromancer
  • Magus of the Wheel: Another wheel effect
  • Tandem Lookout: Like Curiosity, Eye it's another win condition card with Niv-Mizzet
  • Spellseeker: Large amount of targets to tutor for
  • Laboratory Maniac
  • The Locust God


  • Ponder
  • Preordain
  • Serum Visions
  • Faithless Looting
  • Gamble
  • Merchant Scroll
  • Windfall
  • Reforge the Soul
  • Winds of Change
  • Treasure Cruise
  • Vandalblast
  • Blasphemous Act
  • Past in Flames


  • Mystical Tutor
  • Brainstorm
  • Opt
  • Impulse
  • Frantic Search
  • Mystic Confluence
  • Blue Sun's Zenith
  • Dig Through Time
  • Dramatic Reversal
  • Counterspell
  • Arcane Denial
  • Swan Song
  • Negate
  • Disallow
  • Izzet Charm
  • Muddle the Mixture
  • Mission Briefing
  • Cyclonic Rift
  • Chaos Warp
  • Reality Shift
  • Abrade: versatile card in Commander
  • Evacuation


  • Rhystic Study
  • Mystic Remora: One of blue's best Commander cards.
  • Curiosity
  • Ophidian Eye


  • Sol Ring
  • Izzet Signet
  • Chromatic Lantern
  • Mind Stone
  • Thought Vessel
  • Isochron Scepter
  • Gilded Lotus
  • Sapphire Medallion

Hopefully this gives you a better idea for a starting base of cards.

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, saw your forum topic asking for help.

Cards to consider adding:

Dreadnought in your graveyard is a 12/12 with trample for one mana with Lazav. Dreadnought and Asp in your graveyard is a combo. Become Dreadnought with Lazav attack and in combat become Asp, make Asp have infect for and kill an opponent with trampling 12/12 infect. Soulgorger is a 8/8 for three mana, also good. Buried/Windfall/Frantic/Careful are all potential early game plays to get creatures into your graveyard. Windfall/Frantic/Careful can also draw which is helpful. Buried is pretty important because it can tutor for and put up to three creatures into your graveyard at one time for three mana. It alone can set up the Dreadnought/Asp combo. Jace/Wharf/Looter can be early game creatures who can be repeatable ways to draw while also putting a creature into your graveyard.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Deadly Visit
  • Mephitic Vapors
  • Never Happened
  • Severed Strands
  • Stolen Identity
  • Vicious Rumors
  • Cancel
  • Dimir Charm
  • Necrotic Wound
  • Barrier of Bones
  • Dimir Spybug
  • Watcher in the Mist
  • Whisper Agent
  • Jace Beleren

Lands to consider adding:

Good luck with your deck.

Hey, yep Standard is expensive right now. That's because of the playable manabases (Shock lands and Check lands) and the top decks are playing a lot of mythic rares including some decks are using 4x of a very expensive mythic rare. These cards are unfortunately what make the decks competitive :(

Out of all the competitive decks these are the least expensive:

  1. Mono-Blue Tempo with Curious Obsession ($100 or less)
  2. Mono-Red Aggro with Experimental Frenzy ($130)
  3. White Weenie with History of Benalia ($230 and going up)
  4. Izzet Drakes with Arclight Phoenix ($240)
  5. Mono-Red Aggro with Rekindling Phoenix ($240)
  6. Dimir Control with Doom Whisperer ($250)
  7. Boros Aggro with History of Benalia ($280 and going up)

There's still quite a few less than $300 decks to choose from that are competitive. At least this means you don't have to play overly expensive Golgari or Jeskai Control to be competitive as long as you prepare your sideboard to beat these decks. I would feel safe/secure taking any one of the above decks to FNM.

This is an expensive Standard, but it's thankfully a long ways from ridiculously expensive BFZ/OGW/ORI Standard with playable manabases of Fetch lands/Battle lands, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip was a $90 card and 4x in many of the competitive decks. I fear that upcoming GRN/RNA Standard will be close to BFZ/OGW/ORI Standard because of expensive manabases (having 20+ different expensive playable dual lands (Shocks and Checks) to choose from) and because of Teferi, Hero of Dominaria who's going to be more viable in many more decks and he's $50 now. GRN/RNA Standard is going to be fun because of all the options for decks to choose from thanks to the lands, but it's also going to be I think excessively expensive.

SynergyBuild on Tiana, the only boros commander that draws

1 month ago

Yeah, so is it my imagination that Sram, Senior Artificer, the most popular mono-white commander on EDHREC and one of the cheapest card draw engines in the Command Zone in the game, next to Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Baral, Chief of Compliance, Kami of the Crescent Moon, Nin, the Pain Artist, Sygg, River Cutthroat, and the almighty Thrasios, Triton Hero, while Sram also being one of the most efficient after it hits.

Or you know, Lin Sivvi, Defiant Hero, a repeatable tutor in the command zone, Djeru, With Eyes Open, another tutor, Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle, repeatable recursion much like the old Reya Dawnbringer, or in red Daretti, Scrap Savant, one of the most popular mono-red commanders (#2 on EDHREC) with built in card selection, recursion, and more, emblemmy recursion on top, Zada, Hedron Grinder, a storm commander that gains card advantage with effects like Expedite, Godo, Bandit Warlord being a tutor, Feldon of the Third Path being recursion that is repeatable.

And again, the other boros commanders like Depala and Munda.

I guess I was mistaken, and some of the most popular commanders of all time, like Zada storm on a budget, Sram, or Daretti never existed.

multimedia on Should Teferi be banned

1 month ago

Teferi is currently very much limited in the number of decks that can play him due playable lands for manabases. Jan. 2019 however he could become a huge problem. When all ten Shock lands and all ten Check lands will be in Standard at the same time it could be totally different because then there's no restriction of playable lands for manabases; that's what is currently keeping Teferi back.

Esper for instance becomes a ridiculously powerful shard for Teferi when have access to Hallowed Fountain and Godless Shrine. Teferi could become the next $90 card in Standard due to it being such a powerful card and Planeswalker. It's $50 right now and it's only consisently played in one deck. He could do roughly the same thing that Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip did when Battle lands and Fetch lands were in BFZ/OGW Standard together which resulted in crazy four colored $700+ competitive decks that all played Jace, shooting Jace's price up to $93 for a time.

The biggest problem and in my opinion a reason to ban Teferi is he has a monopoly on Control which will most likely get worse in Jan. 2019 (if you're playing current competitive Control, most likely Jeskai, you're playing Teferi). In Standard that would be fine if Teferi wasn't a $50 card, but he is and that's a huge problem. You also want 3-4x of him, most likely 4x, in your deck which is another problem. Wizards is not going to ban a $50 card in Standard, that will never happen with their current greed above everything else company strategy :(

I don't think a ban is necessary now, however I think another errata is. Teferi should not be able to tuck itself into your own library. His -3 loyalty text needs to say "put another target nonland permanent". Another target nonland permanent allows you to still tuck a nonland permanent you control just not Teferi.

Demarge on Sword of the Animist, underpriced?

1 month ago

When origin's was standard legal Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip was a $100 card making that set opened to oblivion, it is actually amazing the card is worth more than a dollar.

That being said the price on it is still so low you could buy a handful cheap and sit on it, the money might be better spent buying up shock lands under $5 whenever you can, but small gambles can be fun.
