Niv-Mizzet, Parun Discussion

tjw415 on Temur Control

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.

Make a pair of cards for the Izzet fight between Niv-Mizzet, Parun , and Ral, Izzet Viceroy .

The_Fallen_Duke on This Fire Burns

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.

Kjartan on Izzet Counter & Burn

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.

You could also go for an Izzet control deck in which case the Niv-Mizzet, Paruns and maybe two Crackling Drakes should probably be your entire creature package.

TheBoraxKid on Nintal Floss (Nin EDH)

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.

Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and Niv-Mizzet, Parun: Really capitalizes on Nin's draw ability. Also punishes opponents for casting instants/sorceries.

Nezahal, Primal Tide: Great high end finisher. Protects itself and lets your handsize get crazy.

Consecrated Sphinx: and of course this big blue daddy. Suffers from the same thing Cyclonic Rift does being a little spendy money-wise but I think this deck is a perfect home for it.

Also, consider Thought Vessel! Great little bit of ramp, although colorless I feel it serves a similar purpose to Spellbook but will benefit you more.

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!

Chainer_the_Dementia_Master on Esper Control

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.

2 things

  1. 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.

  2. 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

Darkshadow327 on Ravnica Allegiance: Spoilers and Speculation

2 weeks ago

I'm pretty sure I heard this somewhere, so correct me if I'm wrong.

Isn't the legendary creature under the Planeswalker for the guild kind of against them? Like Niv-Mizzet, Parun is against Ral, Izzet Viceroy.

Not sure if this is right, but if Ruric Thar is against Domri then we will still likely see him.
