Mizzix of the Izmagnus

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

Mizzix of the Izmagnus Discussion

One formatting point, it should probably read: Equip costs you pay cost less to activate for each experience counter you have.

To synthesize this, I looked at Auriok Steelshaper, Mizzix of the Izmagnus, and Ghostfire Blade.

Otherwise, looks pretty neat. I like the slight additional advantage for legendary equipping legendary.

With cards like Animar, Soul of Elements and Mizzix of the Izmagnus they can be free ;) ;) ;)

I wouldn't be against the idea of it being splashed in a draft set like battlebond2 or conspiracy3. More relevant in draft/sealed, but can splash into eternal formats

Lets say I have 5 experience counters. If my opponent has a such as Dovescape, can I use Boseiju, Who Shelters All to make something such as a Temporal Fissure uncounterable so I can remove the Dovescape, or is this not possible due to the Fissure only costing 1 blue due to the reduction cost from Mizzix of the Izmagnus?

I think you should give him a Mizzix of the Izmagnus storm deck! ... cricket noises ...

Anyway, actually, give him a deck that pumps up its creatures- equipment is less feelsbad than auras if it doesn't work but also more likely to pop off. In my experience with new players, smashing with a big creature is awesome, and if they get other things when they attack (with cards like Sword of the Animist or Bear Umbra), it feels very satisfying. It just feels cool to dictate your play and be like "when I attack, this happens and this happens and my creature is a billion/a billion! Chump block or die!!!"

To that end, I recommend Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith, Kestia, the Cultivator, Tana, the Bloodsower (probably with Akiri, Line-Slinger or Bruse Tarl, Boorish Herder).

Or, if your player is more oriented toward getting that sweet, sweet value than having massive creatures, the Otrimi, the Ever-Playful precon looks fine. That way the player can also do some upgrading if they wanna.

That's not to say x cost draw is a bad include. I included it in my Mizzix of the Izmagnus deck. And it's good. Once you get it off I mean... That's game? It's very game changing to have that much advantage. But it can take a bit to get off.

Also, as it appears I did not address the main question:

Mizzix of the Izmagnus does not give you mana. It just reduces the casting cost of instants and sorceries you cast.

Splice onto Arcane is a static ability that adds the splice cost to the cost of the spell on the stack. You are not casting the spliced card. This means that the mana reduction can count towards a splice cost, but if the mana reduction has already been "used up" by the spell on the stack, you do not get another reduction for the card you want to splice.

702.46a Splice is a static ability that functions while a card is in your hand. “Splice onto [quality] [cost]” means “You may reveal this card from your hand as you cast a [quality] spell. If you do, that spell gains the text of this card’s rules text and you pay [cost] as an additional cost to cast that spell.” Paying a card’s splice cost follows the rules for paying additional costs in rules 601.2b and 601.2f–h.

What is the interaction between Mizzix of the Izmagnus and Desperate Ritual's splice cost?

Say I have 5 counters on Mizzix of the Izmagnus and I want to cast and buy back Fanning the Flames (2 red, 4 colorless for 1 damage), while casting I use the splice from Desperate Ritual (1 red, 1 colorless) to add 3 red to my mana pool. How does this play out?

A) Pay desperate rituals 1 colorless with Mizzix, resulting in an infinite combo of casting and buying back fanning the flames and splicing desperate ritual, then spending desperate rituals 3 red mana to cast it all again.


B) Mizzix can not pay the colorless for desperate ritual and I end up with a repeatable combo for as long as I can cover the 1 colorless from another source.


C) Other

Thank you

Saw the link and request for budget suggestions. I haven't played Melek but I am currently playing Mizzix of the Izmagnus and used to play Keranos, God of Storms. I'm a fan or UR all-around. The suggestions below are fairly generic since I'm unsure of how you want to win. Suggestions are based around cards I've used before in 60-card formats or in EDH with the previously mentioned legendaries, and should be under $5 each.
