Mizzix of the Izmagnus Discussion
2 weeks ago
Noticed you pulled Alms Collector out, he has been invaluable for me fighting Grixis () commander's like Kess, Dissident Mage / Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge for Enter the Infinite, and Izzet () like Mizzix of the Izmagnus Infinite Mana Blue Sun's Zenith decks.
Qasali Pridemage > Felidar Cub. I know he has a cost, which sucks, however, the Exalted is a nice boost, it's contradictory to your Beastmaster Ascension strategy, so I kind of understand, but I would worry about over-committing with no protection / counterspell.
Keen Sense feels like over-committing on a creature and a 2-for-1 loss in an exchange. Plus it only draws you 1 card, AND the creature has to deal damage to an opponent. I wouldn't run that, I'd rather have haste from a Swiftfoot Boots over that.
Uktabi Wildcats is to high CMC for how big he's going to be CMC5 for 5/5 is reasonable, and his ability isn't that great, plus sac a forest (means he gets smaller) and doesn't protect him from exile. You only have 14 forest so need 35% of your forest just to be so-so. Perhaps if your game plan was to Traverse the Outlands into him, it would be ok, but not in the current build. Put in some aggro, "must be answered", like a Lost Leonin.
You have lots of High CMC, I would rather tutor for the cat I want with things like Eladamri's Call than have 4 CMC6 cats for example, just have 2 CMC6 cats and 2 tutors to get them. But preference I guess.
Anyways hope you found something here useful! Cheers +1

I honestly was expecting to see Curiosity in a Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind deck, nice to see one with a different approach.
One really, really janky combo you can run is Part the Waterveil + Radiate. It costs a lot of mana, sure, but if you pay the Awaken cost, and cast Radiate, you get an extra turn for every land you control.

I have to second PJ on getting a precon. It's a good way to try out the format without dropping $200 and 6 hours on a deck you've built. Once you know you like the format, Start looking for Legendary creatures/decks/colors/strategies you like.
The Mizzix of the Izmagnus precon "Seize Control" might be a good place to start....

There is much more, but these ones are the most common for me to fight in my meta. :)

If you're going with x burn spells, I think that Mizzix of the Izmagnus would be a better commander idea than Melek. You can add burn and copy spells like Comet Storm and Reiterate. Mind you, Mizzix's discount applies on buyback, alternate costs, and x costs. If you like going infinite, you can put in Firemind's Foresight to search for Reality Spasm or Reset, Reiterate and Lightning Bolt or Fall of the Titans and cast Reiterate with buyback on Reality Spasm/Reset for infinite mana and kill everyone with an infinitely copied burn spells

Thanks for the replies and attention to my deck page. The hive appreciates it.
Mythwind, high hopes indeed for a new array of slivers. The return to Dominaria is currently set for April 27, 2018. I will be paying very close attention to what Wizards will have in store for that set. While Dominaria is not their home plane, they do have a pretty significant presence there.
enpc, I can agree that by itself Unnatural Selection is kind of a worthless card. Without the commander, it would be a waste of a slot. But despite that, I want to keep it. Here's my assessment of the card, and my reason for keeping it:With Overlord on the board, for a paltry I can steal any creature on the board without the need to untap anything. So with an infinite mana combo in place, yes I can play every sliver in the deck, but I can also steal every creature on the board as well. Amoeboid Changeling does have it's advantage of being tutorable via commander, BUT it can only be used potentially once per turn if Paradox Engine is not in play.
I can agree that the slot can be substituted with something else, but its overwhelming synergy with my commander makes it so worthwhile. I made a Mizzix of the Izmagnus player scoop after I took his commander using Unnatural Selection and my commander in a game of Emperor. With that kind of impact in a game I am very hesitant to swap it out. Your suggestions however, are very nice. I don't have a Eladamri's Call on me, but I do have a Worldly Tutor. I used to have a Necropotence and a Phyrexian Arena. Chord of Calling is interesting, but I also have a Wargate. I might try experimenting with that.
Last, but certainly not least DiabeticFire. Welcome to the hive. Thank you for the +1 and the nice compliments. Curious about why I have Oblivion Stone? I agree, it is very slow, but it is very far from being not good. It's primary power is that it gives me significant influence on the board. For a mere I make other players hesitate to play their best options on the board. With Sliver Hivelord in play, I can keep my creatures while I wipe the board. Also, the best part is that I can keep permanents I deem necessary with fate counters. tl:dr - O-stone lets me intimidate others, and do selective board wipes.
- Gemstone Mine - So, yes those depletion counters can hurt but the pros outweigh the cons.
This land provides me some excellent mana fixing early game. Since slivers are 5 color, having access to the right mana early on is invaluable. Sure, it stinks when the land goes away...but it's worth it to establish a board presence early on.
- Why Engineered Explosives? Simple. It's highly versatile mass removal. It targets all non-land permanents that cost so I can tailor the mass removal to be anything I please. For example I could just remove all tokens and 0 cost permanents from the battlefield. Normally this would be a suitable anti-aggro mass removal option, but I have had great success with this card dealing with token decks.

Well, a friend of mine used him as commander and it was incredibly powerfull, he could ramp so much that it was like playing against Mizzix of the Izmagnus with an infinity amount of experience counter, on the plus it is always an indestructible enchantment (very hard to deal with).Take in consideration that Kruphix, God of Horizons is present only in the "honorable mention" list, which means that he is not one of the banned card.
