Niv-Mizzet, Parun Discussion

Take my advice somewhat with a grain of salt, as I rarely play Bo3 matches, but I feel like mainboard Electrodominance could be more relevant overall compared to Expansion / Explosion . The synergy with Wilderness Reclamation is very powerful; for example, if you hit a turn 2 Growth Spiral land drop, turn 3 reclamation, you could cheat out your Niv-Mizzet, Parun on turn 4 end step and still have mana open for a Quench in case your opponent has an answer. It would take a god draw to pull it off, but you could also include a couple "second stringers" like Crackling Drake for added consistency.
Merits testing of course; could be a terrible idea, but it seemed fun to me at the very least :)

Oops, Kaya's Protection has this activated ability:
, Sacrifice Kaya's Protection: Each opponent loses life equal to the number of pain counters on Kaya's Protection.
Geez, that's both a flavor-fail, and a broken ability.

Change of general, still within the Izzet Guild: even though it extended my hand of 1 card and allowed to copy a spell, with Melek, Izzet Paragon in play I saw myself losing the surprise effect. I will now test Niv-Mizzet, Parun , which should work potentially even better with the deck. Having him as a general, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is temporarily out of the 99 as I see him as redundant.

Counterburn is such a hard deck to build.
I think you should use those drakes for it though, (also the cracking ones.)
Opt would definately also be good if you end up being on the drake plan.

Hey man, I like the look of the list! I've always wanted to make a Nin deck but didn't know exactly what direction to go with it.
However, I think there's a couple cards that would synergize super well:
The Locust God: I feel like this is the perfect creature for this deck. He lets you produce tokens that will overwhelm the board quick with Nin's draw power not to mention you could always target the locust tokens in a pinch to draw some cards. Also, you can hit the Locust God himself, draw, then recast him later. Not to mention that looting ability is pretty great.
Willbreaker: A super sneaky trick to take over your opponent's creatures with Nin's ability. Simply target their creature for 1 and yoink, it's yours!
Cyclonic Rift: Probably the best sweeper available in blue, its a bit expensive both in regards to CMC and actual money but always worth it.
Solemn Simulacrum: Great ramp and a great target to kill off with your own Nin.
Nezahal, Primal Tide: Great high end finisher. Protects itself and lets your handsize get crazy.
All in all, great deck and I look forward to playing against it! +1 from me. EDIT: I know most of these aren't artifacts and it looks like you've got an artifact theme, so if you feel these don't work well with your deck let me know and I'll gladly look for cards a little more synergistic!

OberstHati While I like your build, I've long since abandoned the control plan in standard. It just wasn't fun after a few weeks given the nature of the manabase. I might try esper again after Allegiances releases, but the deck I'm having the most fun with at the moment is the phoenix deck, as strange as that might seem. I actually really liked Treasure Map Flip in Jeskai a lot though, glad it showed up in your build. With Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Dive Down coming online really early in that deck, it becomes ridiculous very quickly.

You need more mana. 34 lands and two pieces of artifact ramp is not going to be enough. 36-37 lands and 6 pieces of artifact ramp are what I would recommend. Izzet Locket, Commander's Sphere, and Command Tower all have a home in this deck.
The deck seems unfocused. Are you blue/red artifacts? Blue/red spells? Are you playing aggressively or controlly? I would pick one strategy and focus in on that. Niv-Mizzet, Parun Incentivizes a spellslinger deck, as do Talrand, Sky Summoner, Guttersnipe, and others so that's what I would focus on if I were you

I'm pretty sure I heard this somewhere, so correct me if I'm wrong.
Not sure if this is right, but if Ruric Thar is against Domri then we will still likely see him.
