Fantastic_Mr_King on I Have The Powerrr!!! (Budget Izzet Ramp)

23 hours ago

OberstHati- My deck doesn't function without Gilded Lotus. My deck is incapable of reaching critical mass without drawing them somewhat consistently. As for Burning Sun's Avatar I'm always super happy to play it, sometimes killing a creature and a planeswalker. I love Expansion / Explosion but it doesn't work in my deck. The only card I can Expansion is Lava Coil and for card draw I'd much rather play Overflowing Insight over explosion since i can cheap it out with Omnispell Adept. I have the same problem with Niv-Mizzet, Parun that I have with Expansion / Explosion, I can't get any value out of it. My deck doesn't have a critical mass of instant and sorcery spells to make Niv-Mizzet worth playing. Also it's very hard to play in my deck since I bring in Field of Ruin against control and Powerstone Shard only produces colorless mana. Thanks for the suggestions though.

@DespairFaction

Thank you so much for playing my deck on your channel! That means a lot to me!

A few things...

I think you might've missed that Bastion Protector gives indestructible! That's the whole point of running that card, and I was screaming at my screen that you never equipped Darksteel Plate to it, and that instead you redundantly equipped it to Kalemne! That was very frustrating to see, as you were playing against a Starke of Rath player, but it was an understandable blunder if you've never played with the card before :p

Reforge the Soul is WAY better than you give it credit for! You can manipulate its miracle ability with Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top, making it extremely playable in this deck. I have taken your recommendation of Memory Jar into consideration though! It's a bit pricey for me at the moment, but I'm panning on finding room for it soon, possibly Ghirapur Orrery but we'll see

Leave / Chance is not strictly worse than Teferi's Protection! I do plan on adding TP soon, although it will replace Stonecloaker, not LtC. I plan on running them both in tandem, as they are both fantastic Boros Charm effects! Leave to Chance is sometimes better than Teferi's Protection in that it's one less to cast, it's a Brand effect, and it's an emergency draw source! I always recommend for RW players to run both because they are both awesome!

A lot of players in the comments were frustrated that you cast Blood Moon when all of your opponents were running red, but agree with your decision and would've done the exact same thing. You completely shut the O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami player out of the game for a while, and you turned off all the Starke player's utility lands

You really need to wait until end of turn to activate abilities! Cracking Expedition Map that early caused you to get three-for-one'd when the Niv-Mizzet, Parun deck cast Timetwister, you activated Starke of Rath on your main phase, allowing your opponent to untap with it, and you rarely ever held up mana for removal! I understand that this was your first time playing with an unfamiliar deck, but all of these seem to be big errors!

I'm sorry for being harsh, but you had so many opportunities for better plays!

Thanks again for the publicity, that was very generous of you!! I hope we can keep this correspondence going in the future :)

I'd Add/Cut Frantic Search over Battle Hymn Consecrated Sphinx for Distant Melody (It’s a win more card, can get better value) Preordain over Serum Visions Mind's Eye over Altar of the Brood(You already have a couple themes going, mill doesn’t need to be one of them) Niv-Mizzet, Parun over Coat of Arms

I have some mixed feelings about Banefire. It works wonders on control matchups or matchups with tons of enchantment removal, where i can sub in Niv-Mizzet, Parun & Banefire To close out games.

The usual combo is to storm withPirate's Pillage to dig deep and generate a ton of mana, so Banefire + Shock + Shock isn't that optimal, the shocks can still get countered and with so little copies that becomes an issue.

I've been trying Lava Coil instead of Justice Strike. It answers Arclight Phoenix better than Justice Strike And still takes care of dangerous targets, such as: Crackling Drake, Steel Leaf Champion and Tempest Djinn.

If you are considering a different route then Niv-Mizzet, Parun is an excellent storm commander. I'm working on a Kess deck and ive decided to go value engines only. She loves storm but she is value over speed.

Eledain on Should Teferi be banned

A slow azorius control build could imo be held in check with a nice izzet build with Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Banefire. There's only the question, how would this build stand against the rest of the meta.

I'm really not that big of a standart fan, but the format is pretty nice since Guilds of Ravnica. I'm really curious who will win this weekend. Maybe after these two days we will already have more knowledge and data to discus the Teferi question.

One problem I see, especially in tournament magic, is, that the "real pros" tend to gravitate towards control decks.

FSims81 on Izzet Wizards who draw

I like this. Obviously it'll play fast, but do you have any concerns over not having any bombs that don't require you to build them to be bombs? I'm interested to try something like this but with Niv-Mizzet, Parun in place of the Omenspeaker. Obviously it removes some of the speed, but better utilizes all the card draw. I'm curious to see how it does around him.
