Nostalgiamatt on Mizzix, budget first build

I have made some changes to the deck, as I have been able to get hold of a few more cards I wanted:

Removed: Chemister's Insight, Command the Storm, Electrickery, Electrolyze, Izzet Charm, Lightning Strike, Ral's Dispersal, Stonefury Beacon Bolt, Divination, Invoke the Firemind, Precision Bolt, Roast, Windfall Nevinyrral's Disk Firemind's Research

Added: Mystical Tutor, Reiterate, Turnabout, Clockspinning, Shattering Pulse, Capsize, Gamble, Preordain, Vandalblast, Merchant Scroll, Mystic Retrieval, Past in Flames, High Tide, Hidden Strings, Misdirection, Young Pyromancer

This should give me a little more control, and has added some much needed combos in. Still not where I want to be with the deck overall yet, but all I could afford to put in for now. Will make some more changes after Christmas is out of the way, and once I have played with it a bit more to see what exactly needs doing.

Since you are running the classic combo, I would suggest running the hand cycling route in using cards like Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul, Time Spiral, Tolarian Winds, Winds of Change. To make your deck run more consistent you can also consider running tutors such as Mystical Tutor, Personal Tutor, Merchant Scroll, Gamble, Intuition. Cards that give you early game advantage as well would be Mystic Remora, Rhystic Study, and Search for Azcanta  Flip. Some of the cards are pricey, but that's what you want if you want to dominate cuz there aren't much options for efficiency.

Hope that helps!

I just realized that I didn't link any of those cards... Also I'd like to Add the land Mirrorpool for apparent reasons. Isochron Scepter , Merchant Scroll , The Chain Veil , Young Pyromancer , Murmuring Mystic , Clockspinning , Mirrorpool , Propaganda , Faithless Looting

Nope I'm done with this I got nothing left. I do think though it needs 2 more sorcery tutors like Long-Term Plans and Merchant Scroll

Hey, really nice first attempt at making a Control deck in Commander.

I would start by improving the manabase. Consider more Simic dual lands? There's a lot of mana cost cards here, but there's quite a few of lands that don't make blue mana or ETB tapped. When you've moved out of budget Commander territory which you have then try to have all lands ETB untapped. Lands to consider adding:

Upgrades to consider:

Cards to consider cutting:

  • 2x Forest
  • Evolving Wilds
  • Vivid Grove
  • Path of Ancestry
  • Mikokoro, Center of the Sea
  • Exotic Orchard
  • Vesuva
  • Simic Growth Chamber
  • Aethersnatch
  • Gather Specimens
  • Spelljack
  • Ixidron
  • Seeds of Innocence
  • Plasm Capture
  • Riftsweeper
  • Nissa, Vastwood Seer

There's currently only 98 cards here consider adding Ponder and Preordain to make 100 cards?

Other upgrades to consider:

Draw: Brainstorm, Frantic Search

Ramp: Llanowar Elves, Elvish Mystic, Fellwar Stone

Creatures: Consecrated Sphinx, Eternal Witness

Tutors: Merchant Scroll, Worldly Tutor

Good luck with your deck.

while everyone is trying to cut dead cards, calculate the average mana cost of a deck, count the number of counter/removal/protection i thought i want to look at another strenght about decks.

this is a view only about how much density there is in decks to find quick 2 card combos. the bigger the web between soft tutors in addition to hard tutors and overlapping combopieces the more opportunities will arise on average through all games you play.

but one can visualize this web and count the numbers to see a decks combo opportunity.

call it useless i had a moment free and did this anyway XD

  • 1st 3-6-5 -> 8-11
  • 2nd 5-2-5 -> 10-7
  • 3rd 5-2-5 -> 10-7
  • 4th 5-5-5 -> 10-10
  • 5th 5-10-5 -> 10-15

super secret tech 2 card combo

extra goods

tymna + ramp = good topdecks because of the "restricted" tutors

tutor chains can get you anything you desire. not fast but extending the tutor reach for all combos by quite a bit.

I like this list. The problem is that Frantic Search is banned in Pauper, and Merchant Scroll and High Tide are illegal in Online Pauper and banned at many paper events. I would recommend replacements but there really are none. I hope that you have or find a place to play this list.
