Mizzix of the Izmagnus Discussion
1 hour ago
First, welcome to Commander!
For everyone new to the format, I recommend starting with a Commander Pre-con. None of them are optimized (because they all come with three different Commander options), but they're all playable out of the box. You get a decent manabase and a ton of Commander staples, plus by playing the different Commanders you can very quickly get a good feel for the direction you'll want to take your eventual homebrew deck. Plus you'll get to playtest the very different card interactions and politics of multiplayer without a big time/$/emotional investment.
Commander 2017 comes out in August (with Tribal themed decks), if you want to wait. Otherwise I would probably recommend one of the Commander 2015 products. They were all surprisingly good out of the box, and with some inexpensive upgrades, the Meren of Clan Nel Toth and Mizzix of the Izmagnus ones were really good.
Also, here are some resources I really like:
- The Command Zone podcasts and videos are superb. You will probably not find the deck tech ones very helpful (the hosts are pretty spiky, so budget is not much of a consideration) but their level up ones (on politics and ediquitee for example) are great for folks new to multiplayer.
- For some good budget decks and great explanations of the thought process that went into them, I recommend checking out Abe Sargent's Budget Commander series at GatheringMagic and Tomer Abramovici's Budget Commander series at MTGgoldfish.
- I also recommend Jason Alt's 75% deck deck design philosophy to most new players.
Sorry about the wall of text. Thanks for reading this far!
Good luck and good skill!

@colton815 That's not really a rules issue, but perhaps Time Stretch is being cast off a powered up As Foretold, or all three spells are free thanks to Omniscience. Or your using a Palinchron+High Tide combo to produce infinite mana. Or you cast Boundless Realms on the previous turn and just have that many lands now. Or you're playing Commander with Mizzix of the Izmagnus as your commander. Or the game has just gone long enough that you have that much mana available. This isn't that unusual of a situation in Commander, but can arise in other formats.

xrex479,what are you doing here again? You must like the deck eh? Anyways with Price of Glory i find that im already setting-up enough with most of my equipment and adding another 3 drop that does nothing when it comes downs kinda makes me not want to play it. I get what you mean with hurting the players who want to do shit on my turn the problem is that with my Meta there are way to many well tuned decks in it. Like Mizzix of the Izmagnus which once it starts to storm there is no stopping it and then Memnarch just stealing all my stuff on their turns. So I like Price of Glory but Boil is more or less a bait card as-well so yeah theres that. PS: Yes. My meta is filled with "Spikes" and "Johnny Combo", not that this is a bad thing just a matter of fact is all!

cyclonemetal I agree with you that it is too narrow, but in my case where there are: 2 Nekusar, the Mindrazer decks, 1 Mizzix of the Izmagnus deck, 1 Memnarch deck and 3 Maelstrom Wanderer decks. Also there use to be 3 Leovold, Emissary of Trest decks until he got the axe. So yeah, I agree with ya on how Boil is a little dumb but some times its a blow out and its cute. I don't really see it that often in my hand where it would be useless in my meta. But most of the time its there just for a good Sunforger target, anyways thanks for asking!

It doesn't sound like it's the pre-con. He says it's storm, So I'm leaning towards it being a Yidris heavy wombo-combo deck. Something like a Mizzix of the Izmagnus deck, or Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge. Explosive and deadly.
