Nin, the Pain Artist Discussion

passascats on Nivvy Boy

This build looks solid, but doesn't seem to take full advantage of old Niv. By loops I assume you are avoiding Curiosity on purpose, but what about more wheel effects? Arjun, the Shifting Flame seem like a better choice than Nin, the Pain Artist, or maybe even Dragon Mage?
Also I've seen Fevered Visions do work, and it's a little better than Dictate of Kruphix. Also Rhystic Study seems good here.
Hope you have a blast with this deck, looks like a fun one!

Maybe you can abuse Nin, the Pain Artist with this deck. I could be wrong

ANd I bring more gifts for you to look at I used to run a discard deck back when I was into modern:P The Rack, Shrieking Affliction, Fate Unraveler Insidious Dreams, Archfiend of Ifnir, Magus of the Jar, Nin, the Pain Artist, Blue Sun's Zenith, Geth's Grimoire (If I was into izzet I would run this)

Now this may cost you a pretty penny but The Locust God

This is phenominal. Power to you for this.

A few bits of information:

Nin, the Pain Artist: I believe she's from Mirrodin; as it is the only known plane with four-armed Vedalken.

Vela the Night-Clad: I'm 90% certain she's from Kamigawa. Don't have a source on that, but I remember reading it somewhere. (Something having to do with her ability synergizing with Ninjitsu, which it does)

That's all I have now, but I'm certain there's more in the Unknown category that we do know their plane if origin.

If you like being reactionary, and the card draw capability of Azami , Nin, the Pain Artist could be great as you can draw by hitting your own guys, or you can play political and hit opponents.

Edric, Spymaster of Trest can give you attack based card draw while encouraging you opposition to not attack you for cards. This can be built inexpensively with cheap fliers and unblockables.

I've been working on an Inalla list for a long time and I've been making cuts constantly. If you wouldn't mind, could I ask about some specific cards you're using and why?

Lastly, 38 lands seems like quite a lot. Are you able to move through your deck quickly enough to avoid bricking?

I would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for your time in advance!

I felt the same way with my list for Inalla, Nin, the Pain Artist felt like she really didn't do anything to make the deck better. There were just better wizards or spells to play
