Mizzix's Mastery Discussion

Deco95 on Kess Final Storm

Sgtpopnfreash, both Snapcaster Mage and Mizzix's Mastery Improve Intuition plays and enable recasting Yawgmoth's Will and Wheels from the grave even without kess, which is a good redundancy in this case. I'd probably cut one of them if I had Timetwister and Candelabra of Tawnos.

I've add Final Fortune to improve my Ad Nauseam and Doomsday plays. I'm actually testing it and I believe it can find its slot even without Sundial of the Infinite. Have you ever considered it?

That looks super good. Have you liked Snapcaster Mage? I took mine out a while ago. After thinking it through I sort of like Mizzix's Mastery more even though it hardly ever gets overloaded.

Entrei on Most hell like stack ever?

1 week ago

So... a deck of mine brought up the concern of Mizzix's Mastery and Hive Mind

Hypothetically speaking, if I had Hive Mind and Eye of the Storm out, and cast Mizzix's Mastery while each player had say 10 instants and sorceries in yard,this this would cause up to 1000 entities on the stack...

My question: can anyone think of a more hell like interaction with 3 or fewer cards that doesn't create an infinite loop?

Hey you should put in Dragon Tempest and Expedite are good cards for you to have.

Just in general though you want to have a couple more mana rocks because they are just good in general. I don't know what your budget is like but here is a link to all the mana rocks for EDH

http://www.mtgsalvation.com/forums/the-game/commander-edh/680767-mana-rocks-complete-list

Basically you want to get things like Mana Vault, Fellwar Stone, Izzet Signet, Mind Stone these are the ones that are easy to get and are relatively cheap.

The token based wincon and the dragonstorm isn't really the best "wincon" so to say. Of course it is up to you and if you find this to be really entertaining. A more competitive deck would use something like Aetherflux Reservoir and cast their entire deck but oh well.

Here are some cards you need that are also relatively cheap and very good.

Preordain Brainstorm Ponder Gitaxian Probe Mystic Remora Serum Visions Opt Treasure Cruise Cathartic Reunion Faithless Looting Gamble Curse of the Swine Negate Dispel Spell Pierce

more expensive

Mystical Tutor Ancestral Vision Merchant Scroll Cyclonic RiftMizzix's Mastery Lightning Greaves

basically you have a lot of cards in your deck that are like second tier cards I am not sure if you are going for flavor victory.

What is generally the case is that winning through combat is bad in EDH because you often need to setup for an extra turn and you might get completely wiped. In EDH if is pretty hard to win without using an infinite combo to kill everyone at the same time. You will also be viewed as a threat if you have a bunch of shit on the board. You have a lot of very expensive creatures in your deck that don't immediately win you the game. When you cast something that is like 8 mana the hope is that you win with that card.

You should look at some other people's mizzix decks it will give you an idea of how people play commander. I don't know if many will be that great on this site but oh well.

Kokrem & brian.olson542 - Days Undoing isn't the best option unfortunately, you really want it to be on your turn. I would probably replace it with Mizzix's Mastery or another draw 7 such as Diminishing Returns or Reforge the Soul.

Spirits on Kess, Dissident Mage

3 weeks ago

Cards that I don't like:

Darkwater Catacombs | In a turn 4/5 build, it's too slow. Basically useless in some situations and opposite of mana fixing

Fetid Pools | Enters tapped needs strong abilities, maybe turn 8 cycling would be good, but in a Turn 4/5 build, it's not a turn 1 through 4 land so shouldn't be in there

Great Furnace | I think you can fetch , a single on Turn 1 though 4 is terrible

Tolaria West | Great land, but what does it tutor for you that's a combo card, Mana Crypt is ok, but none of your combos are land based, I wouldn't run this. If you needed to fetch a specific land for a combo would be ok.

Big Cash $$$ Money Land Upgrades (Have fun with these): Underground Sea, Volcanic Island, Wooded Foothills (cheap!), Arid Mesa, Misty Rainforest, Verdant Catacombs, Marsh Flats

I would go down 1 net land to 36 as well.

Cut list:

Devastation Tide | Miracle is too random, want to control your spells not have them control you. And it's a sorcery, as an instant it would be ok.

Cryptic Command has a pretty High CMC with , it's instant so it's better than some of the other sorcery/creatures, but could be a problem. It's VERY good card though, I would keep it worth the hard casting cost.

Scroll Rack mana sponges, it's too random, and too slow for turn 4/5 deck

Tolaria West go down a land!

Tutor Plans?:

Beseech the Queen >> Necropotence or Show and Tell or Laboratory Maniac

Demonic Tutor >> Necropotence or Omniscience or Enter the Infinite

Fabricate >> Sensei's Divining Top or Seat of the Synod or Mana Crypt (Add) (Not really that utility, doesn't pull any combo pieces, could be a cut list, I would probably cut this card)

Gamble >> Necropotence (High Risk, High Reward) or Show and Tell or Demonic Tutor

Imperial Seal >> Necropotence or Omniscience or Enter the Infinite

Merchant Scroll >> Lim-Dul's Vault or Intuition (Add it) or Mystical Tutor

Personal Tutor >> Enter the Infinite or Show and Tell

Tunnel Vision (when used to tutor) >> Mizzix's Mastery! (Downside is it misses Omniscience so need something it can hit to put a card from graveyard into hand, best would be a card like that with flashback) OR Tunnel Vision >> Yawgmoth's Will. If it discards a Past in Flames get a couple shots. I think Kess, Dissident Mage can cast the Overload cost from the graveyard for Mizzix's Mastery too if you do get it looking for the Yawgmoth's Will which then cast the Yawgmoth's Will.

Throw an Imperial Recruiter in there as well to Tutor a Laboratory Maniac heh

Trinket Mage >> Sensei's Divining Top or Mana Crypt (Add). He doesn't pull combo pieces so he can be cut. Once you have Mana Crypt he only cost you , without it, he's not awesome.

Lim-Dul's Vault >> Any Tutor cluster or Any two combo cards, hard to plan this one because it relies on random cluster, or a Necropotence

Long-Term Plans >> Necropotence or Omniscience or Enter the Infinite

Mystical Tutor >> Show and Tell or Enter the Infinite

Tainted Pact >> Entire Library with Laboratory Maniac, or a specific solution, or to find a final combo piece

Vampiric Tutor >> Necropotence or Omniscience or Enter the Infinite

Summary: Harder to tutor items (Enchantment) should be priorities, Necropotence or Omniscience. Kess, Dissident Mage let's you recast and pull another item in most cases to finish the combo Omniscience + Enter the Infinite, lots of tutors pull Show and Tell for you.

Street Wraith, Doomsday (Don't need Lion's Eye Diamond you have other ways to win with it) honorable mention for adds.

Intuition, Mana Drain, Force of Will, Grim Tutor, Mana Crypt are all-stars.

Capture of Jingzhou and Temporal Manipulation are good too, but not necessary, you're really just trying to combo win with Show and Tell + Omniscience + Enter the Infinite would focus on getting there.

Don't need Thought Scour, it builds the graveyard for Kess, Dissident Mage but it's too dangerous if it pushes a Omniscience or Necropotence

Frantic Search is better if you have a way to recur-it, like a Nivix Guildmage, but it does give you more control on the discard. The problem arises when you only have 1 card in hand, becomes the same issue I'm sure you experience with the Scroll Rack.

Leyline of Anticipation can be cut, but I like it. Helps with protecting the top-decking tutors. Actually works against Kess, Dissident Mage though if you delay cast, in some random cases.

Dreadbore could just be another tutor that pulls Hero's Downfall they do the same thing anyway (or a Yawgmoth's Will if you need to recast Hero's Downfall and have used Kess, Dissident Mage. And it's a sorcery (YUCK)

You need the Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots for Phage the Untouchable and Laboratory Maniac. You could lose the Swiftfoot Boots since you do have Artifact tutors, but I bet they are pulling mana sources not boots.

Phyrexian Metamorph could go too if needed. 9 Artifacts, and 7 creatures, BUT, I would keep it to copy a Vendilion Clique or Snapcaster Mage or Laboratory Maniac to win.

Temporal Extortion could be wasted spell, since i doubt your doing the extra damage, but in multi-player perhaps it may resolve due to politics.

Time Warp could come out too if needed, high CMC extra turns. Useful for mid-range play though.

Need to research a way to bring a card from graveyard to hand, if it has flashback, that would be AMAZING!

SirFowler on VZ Yidris

A few cards you could add would be more cards with cascade like Etherium-Horn Sorcerer, Bloodbraid Elf, and/or Demonic Dread. Some fun interactions you could have would be cards like Possibility Storm, Eye of the Storm, and Swarm Intelligence. And to utilize the most out of storm, use more cards with flashback like Think Twice, Past in Flames, and/or Mizzix's Mastery. Also, cards that "put into play" don't really effect storm, so the synergy isn't necessarily the best. This deck just needs to be focused more if you're wanting to go the storm route.

Hope this was helpful. Let me know if you need any more help.

golgarigirl on Ulasht, the Hate Seed

1 month ago

Always keep in mind: What does your deck want to do? How does it win?

I'm taking an educated guess with Ulasht, but I'm guessing what it wants is more creatures (especially ones of both colors), and it can win through either overrunning with lots of creatures or with a few really large ones that benefit from all the little ones (like Ulasht itself).

So, we cut things that don't help with this (and that aren't support such as ramp and removal). Some of my picks would include Burning-Tree Emissary, Young Pyromancer, Hidden Herd, Hidden Guerrillas, Gaea's Anthem, Mass Mutiny, Mizzix's Mastery...all these cards (and a good number of others currently in your list) are good cards...but are not really what your deck is doing. Pyromancer and Mastery want to be in decks that have far more spells, where Ulasht doesn't care about spells at all. Anthem and Emissary don't offer effects that make much difference in commander...commander is a format of haymakers, and they don't offer enough 'bang for your buck'. And the Hidden cards rely too much on your opponents for benefits.

I didn't take out enough for all the land -and- all the suggestions you might want to add, but you probably get the idea!
