Mizzix of the Izmagnus

Legendary Creature — Goblin Wizard

Whenever you cast an instant or sorcery spell with converted mana cost greater than the number of experience counters you have, you get an experience counter.

Instant and sorcery spells you cast cost less to cast for each experience counter you have.

Mizzix of the Izmagnus Discussion

Look on EDHREC for more information about Kess, Dissident Mage and you can also take inspiration from other commander's like Mizzix of the Izmagnus for more inspiration about storm. (BTW: add Mizzix of the Izmagnus , she's a super Baral, Chief of Compliance without the looting effect though). Counter magic is fine but it isn't as effective in commander as it is in modern or standard, The counter is 1/4 less effective than in other formats. Burn is an little bit of a strange choice but I have no ideas on what to replace it with. One last thing, how strong would you grade this deck based of a 1 to 5 scale, 1 being the worst jank/10 second deck build and 5 being the most highly tuned think you can win really early. Again, Hope you found this really long paragraph useful and not just a waste of time.

Hyrkh yeah, I know that works, but its considerably weaker than PE, because you need to have those 2 cards in hand for it to work. sure you could fill your deck with tutors for both, but is that worth it? You could just play Mizzix of the Izmagnus if you want Izzet storm. I think that Elsha of the Infinite has taken Jhoira's place as the artifact storm commander. people that use to play Jhoira artifact storm have moved on to Elsha instead, I read that many places while researching if Jhoira was still worth it because I wanted to build a storm deck and I like Izzet so, therefor it was either Jhoira, Mizzix or Elsha (she's Jeskai I know).

I'd consider a different name; life and decay are both words that bring green to mind, or green/black together.

The trick you're going to run into is that unlike original Animar, the abilities you've got don't synergize. The first one cares about you controlling creatures, so it wants you to run a lot of creatures in the deck. The second rewards you for playing non-creature spells, so you'd want a lot of those in the deck. Where Animar encourages creature-heavy builds, your version is caught in between two worlds.

If you want to emphasize the non-creature aspect (which is a strong suit of grixis colors), you could consider hybridizing Kess, Dissident Mage with Mizzix of the Izmagnus - reduce costs for +1/+1 counters, while gaining counters for non-creature spells that are cast from graveyard, or maybe an ability that allows you to cast spells from the graveyard if they cost less than then number of counters on Decimar, rather than reducing cost paired with an ability that adds a counter for each spell cast from hand.

Perhaps something like "Every time you draw a card, you lose one life and put one +1/+1 counter on Decimar" and "You may cast non-creature spells in your graveyard with CMC less than Decimar's power." That would still mirror Animar's abilities somewhat, while feeling on theme for Grixis's strong suit (which is not typically creatures).

king-saproling hello, thanks for the comment! I appreciate your input, and here's how things break down for me on the recommended cards. Swarm Intelligence + Thousand-Year Storm ended up being too slow mana wise, as they were both in the very early builds of this deck. The electromancer and familiar kind of fell in the same boat, as the reduction is nice but the creatures in the deck don't tend to stay long term as I focus even more on slinging spells. Mizzix of the Izmagnus however I just don't like to play outside of the command zone, since its either better to run more than one card that cares about experience counters or to not rely on them at all. Jace's Sanctum didn't make the cut for the same reason as the electromancer, Memory Plunder was in an earlier build as well, and while I like the card it can only hit cards in opponents grave, which can be rough. The devils, vengeance and spellseeker are just not something I want in this deck, as the first is too slow, the second can be irrelevant in my meta, and the last is too limited for me. Spark Double is a card on my to get list, and Muddle the Mixture got cut due to the fact that I trimmed counterspells, and as a transmute effect... I would rather just cast an actual tutor, be able to get anything, and above all have a repeatable spell without extra steps. thanks for your input!

Vormi, Earth Tender

Legendary Creature- Wurm

You may exile 8 creature cards from your graveyard and pay rather than play Vormi's mana cost.

Trample. Vormi can't be blocked by more than one creature.

Whenever Vormi, Earth Tender attacks, create X 1/1 black and green Worm creature tokens, where X is the number of lands in your graveyard.

8/8

Create the vehicle from any one of these cards- Battle Squadron , Mizzix of the Izmagnus , Sling-Gang Lieutenant , or Goblin Test Pilot (sorry for stealing your request Ziusdra.)
