@gatotempo Although I don't have any Rare wild cards right now I will get some eventually and would be happy to upgrade the lands. Thank you very much for the suggestion!

@VampiricJace I do lose to blue almost 100% of the time, The only time I really win is if I get the Mirror Shield on something with Hydra's Growth or have The Ozolith down and the counters just shift around and don't go away. Thank you very much for the advice!

Blue is always a hard matchup for me I did have The Great Henge in there for a while but I found my creatures never lasted long enough on the field to actually reduce the cost enough to play it. Every deck I face has 1000 removal spells and it's really anti fun to play a creature deck against that..

Fantastic budget deck you've got here!!! $50 is wonderful! Some suggestions I would have though are to add in more cards like Wall of Blood (which I see you've already got here) such as Mischievous Poltergeist and maybe substitute some of the card draw here (since you have more than enough I think) for maybe a bit more lifegain or maybe a bit more ramp since the avg cmc of this deck is pretty high. I think some protection like Mirror Shield or Whispersilk Cloak especially would come in very helpful for this deck to protect Villis. Love the deck :)

Creature - Elf Shaman


Whenever a creature with deathtouch blocks or is blocked by ~, destroy that creature.

~ may block any number of creatures

I cheated, but I thought it would be cool to see a creature mimic Mirror Shield, and you've got to throw some Avatar of Hope in there.

Colfenor's Urn is kind of a lot of elaborate work for a bit of a dubious payoff(it generally seems much worse than just having a counterspell to protect your creatures from dying in the first place, for example.). Mirror Shield is a hyper specific draft card, It's just not very powerful. Also, vigilance isn't really an important keyword for you, so Brave the Sands isn't really helping you much. I'm also skeptical of Sight of the Scalelords...your creatures are probably big enough on average that an anthem isn't really the most important effect for you, particularly not at such a steep rate.

I'd suggest they be replaced with just cheap cantrips and/or interaction, if there's no other cards that immediately are of interest for you. Beast Within, Generous Gift, Disdainful Stroke, Negate, Kenrith's Transformation are a few excellent and budget options. Effects like Rampant Growth or Mind Stone would also probably be fine and generically good additions.

I have a Mizzix deck too and I've found she gets removed early and often. I'd highly recommend more ramp and some more protection. Doesn't seem like you run enough counterspells (or have the mana) to protect her full-time. The boots, Mirror Shield, Darksteel Plate, et al

I like your spell selections and enchantments!

I have a Mizzix deck that I adore. Tall Mizzix'd Cocktail With A Sidecar. Most people know the deck is very commander-centric so you will see her removed A LOT.

I would highly recommend Darksteel Plate, Lightning Greaves, Swiftfoot Boots, and maybe things like Mirror Shield, Alexi's Cloak, Whispersilk Cloak, Mask of Avacyn, Hammer of Nazahn, Diplomatic Immunity, etc. The auras have the normal aura problems but at least Alexi's Cloak can surprise someone and act like a counterspell. Counterspells can keep Mizzix sfe too but I find I often tap out to cast spells so your mileage may vary. It all depends on your budget.

Shark Typhoon and Metallurgic Summonings are good in a Mizzix deck.

KongMing Thanks. I like the idea of hexproof. I'll try a couple of these options. I think Mirror Shield or Lazotep Plating probably fits the best.

Your are plenty welcome to use a Feature Token on this deck, but I have to be honest I have already used 3 on it. I don't mind chipping in support this site, so I keep a few tokens on hand.

Hey Titus7007, this deck is doing really well, so I'm tempted to use a Feature Token on it. Make whatever changes you want and lemme know before I do. (:

Yeah, UB control is always highly effective, especially because of all the options it seems to have to around defenses. Is it possible to work some kind of hexproof in here, like Crystalline Giant, Join Shields, Lazotep Plating, or Mirror Shield? Some of these are going to rotate out soon, but Adv Gatherer says they are still eligible for Standard.
