Niv-Mizzet, Parun Discussion

My first thought was that you clearly know how to build a deck, and my second was that some of the choices are a bit subpar, which is to be expected when filling 99-slots, rather than the 10ish cards you'd select for a 60-card deck. I would lose low-impact cards like Spellbook, The Royal Scions, and Sentinel Tower. Thought Vessel , Dack Fayden , and a 36th land are the first 3 swaps I would make. If you're building on a budget versus friends who have the budget for better manabases, take advantage of that with Blood Moon , Ruination , and Back to Basics . If not, then I would use Niv-Mizzet, Parun as the commander and shore up the manabase. Also, no Ophidian Eye and Curiosity ? Finally, take a look at the EDHREC page for Niv. It's really the best tool for building EDH decks. I'd also check out Saffron Olive's 3 Biggest Commmander Deck Building Mistakes.

Here are some of the newer-released cards that I've added to my Mizzix deck (Note, I did not buy the precon, I built mine from scratch).

Firstly, a little disappointed there are no walls in this list for flavor.
Secondly, maybe consider adding another win condition to close out games. Maybe a Ral, Izzet Viceroy or Niv-Mizzet, Parun at the top end or Thing in the Ice Flip as relatively safe win conditions in your colours.
The list looks solid.

I would recommend agianst trying to mix both death-touching and stealing opponent's creatures. Just forucs on one effect. But even before that, you need to figure out what your win condition is. Alos, if you're looking to use Niz as your main wincon, Niv-Mizzet, Parun has the benefit of being uncounterable. Also, since a good chunk of your ping creatures are red, Torbran, Thane of Red Fell seems decent here.
I think that either Riku of Two Reflections or Maelstrom Wanderer are better commanders here. Riku makes more dudes and does double duty on untap spells and wanderer is a haste source. Plus they free up another card slot.

Hey, you're welcome. Been a while since I commented on your deck. I like the changes you've made. You've learned a lot in 9 months. The differences are huge, good job. Are you consistently winning?
I think your deck can use streamlining. What I see is lots of high mana cost redundancy which you don't need because it's making the avg. CMC very high, rounded up 4.0. It's high because there's too many high mana cost cards. Consider cutting several for low mana cost cards that draw? Remember you have your high mana cost card that you want to cast, it's sitting in the Command Zone.
Streamlining means cutting unnecessary cards such as Arcanis the Omnipotent , Venser's Journal , Time Stretch and Warstorm Surge . Arcanis is not needed because you have Consecrated Sphinx and Niv-Mizzet, Parun ; both will draw many more cards, even the turn you play them and are flying threats. Having three six drop flying threats is enough. Journal is high mana cost no max hand size effect which is not needed when you have three other low mana cost cards that are better that give you this effect. You have Time Warp and Beacon of Tomorrows so you don't also need to play Stretch since Stretch is 10 mana. Both Impact Tremors and Purphoros, God of the Forge are better than Surge and Surge is six mana.
Another part of your deck that could use some improvements is the manabase. 26x basic lands is a lot and you don't have to play so many because there's even budget playable lands you could add. I'll suggest budget lands and some nonbudget ones:
- Shivan Reef
- Ash Barrens
- Grixis Panorama
- Mystic Sanctuary
- Cephalid Coliseum
- Castle Vantress
- Fiery Islet
- City of Brass
- Reflecting Pool
Other cards to consider adding:
- Narset, Parter of Veils : busted with wheels because your opponents discard their hands and don't get to draw, only you draw.
- Trinket Mage : tutor for Skullclamp, Sol, or Leng. Gets you a win condition, ramp or no max hand size.
- Mystic Remora : one drop, one of the best sources of repeatable draw in multiplayer Commander.
- Brainstorm : one drop, draw three.
- Ponder : one drop draw.
- Preordain : one drop draw.
- Faithless Looting : one drop, draw two, flashback good with wheels.
- Winds of Change : one drop wheel.
- Treasure Cruise : delve is good with wheels, one drop, draw three.
- Molten Psyche : wheel.
- Arcane Signet
- Talisman of Creativity
- Shared Animosity : repeatable pump the power of all attacking Insects.
- Bident of Thassa : repeatable draw, draw a card for each Insect that does damage to a player.
- Narset's Reversal
- Chain of Vapor
- Chaos Warp
- Mystic Retrieval : flashback good with wheels.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Temple of the False God: can't tap for mana until you have five lands in play.
- Venser's Journal
- Arcanis the Omnipotent
- Time Stretch
- Warstorm Surge
- Mana Flare
- Jushi Apprentice / Tomoya the Revealer
- Psychic Spiral
- Windreader Sphinx
- Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur
- Gilded Lotus
- Darksteel Ingot
- Keep Watch
- Enter the Infinite
- Thought Reflection
- Fateful Showdown

out of currosity what would your thoughts be on running Niv-Mizzet, Parun as your commander instead?
I know his devotion is increased but his draw is better his body is better and he can't be countered?

What route are you trying to take with this because if you are trying the Guttersnipe / Electrostatic Field route i'd honestly say you neeed far less creatures and far more instants and sorcs. I'd max at 16 creatures for that strat maybe less well to be fair whatever strat you are running with this it looks like you need less creatures. I'd say Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Crackling Drake have too high cmc to run in a 20 land deck. I'd say Nivix Cyclops is also too slow for the strat you are trying. If you want to run a prowess style thing though Slip Through Space is worth thinking about.
