Niv-Mizzet, Parun Discussion

Kiran_M on Card creation challenge

This is exactly the kind of card that I need in my Niv-Mizzet, Parun commander deck, so I'll try to make it not broken and hope that it might get printed. (I once cast an Epic Experiment and put 3 copies on the stack due to Thousand-Year Storm).

Don't judge the name, for some reason I can't think of a good one.

Curse of Lightning-

Legendary Enchantment- Aura Curse

Enchant Opponent


Whenever you cast or copy an instant or sorcery, ~ deals 1 damage to enchanted player for each instant and sorcery you've cast or copied this turn.

At the beginning of the next end step, the enchanted player draws a card for each damage dealt to him by ~ this turn.

Return ~ to your hand at the beginning of your end step.

Make this challenge again, but try to go in a different direction. (And it doesn't matter if I get Ninja'd!)

Just an FYI. Your card choices section is in the middle of all the commanders you have beaten, also you have Niv-Mizzet, Parun listed twice in the card draw section.

The primer is great and I'll definitely be using it as I build my own Ur-Dragon deck

Ghired's Pound Town - My Play group has some Decent Control Decks with Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Riku of Two Reflections at the helm, im looking for some ideas on balancing out the fast aggression to win with some Defence so im not just passing my turn without doing anything.

Any Suggestions would be great (:

the only combo I have is

Niv-Mizzet, Parun + Curiosity

Infinite damage and infinite draw whenever a player casts an instant or sorcery or whenever you draw a card

KayneMarco on Locust God - Budget-ish

Arjun, the Shifting Flame is insane in a locust god deck. And with how many instant and sorcery spells you’re running maybe Niv-Mizzet, Parun could find a home in here. He’ld give you lots of card draw as well. Plus more damage dealing.

Lordeh on Izzet Faerie-Mancer (Pioneer)

I would consider swapping Faerie Formation for Niv-Mizzet, Parun as he hits just as hard and can draw way more cards with your cheap cantrips. He is more expensive and does have a much heavier colour requirement but is a stronger choice in my opinion.


ZendikariWol on Dalakos, Crafter of Wonders

First and most importantly, have you considered naming this deck "Dalakos's Artifact Stack Attack," because I think that would be wonderful.

Beyond that, though, have you considered the following:

Balefire Dragon (because it's fantastic), Captain Lannery Storm (because she's a warm body that ramps), Cephalid Constable (because it's a criminally underrated masterpiece), Daring Saboteur (because it loots and is evasive af), Fervent Champion (because it's an excellent voltron), Flameblast Dragon (because removal is nice), Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (because stealing spells is fun), Hellkite Tyrant (because 20 artifacts, with this deck? Sure, you'll need help, but that's what your opponents are for!), Hero of Oxid Ridge (in case you have any pesky token strats in your meta), Legion Loyalist (because why not just give your creatures all the keywords at that point), Markov Blademaster (because double strike is just really strong), Niv-Mizzet, Parun (in case storm exists in your meta), Prophetic Flamespeaker (because it's got double strike, trample, and card draw), Rapacious One (because INFINITE BLOCKERS), Scab-Clan Berserker (in case, once again, of Storm), Scourge of the Throne (because it's real good), Tandem Lookout (because drawing two cards per turn is nice), Tyrant's Familiar (because, once again, removal is wonderful to have), Varchild, Betrayer of Kjeldor (because it basically creates tokens for you), Windreader Sphinx (because it's a LOT of card draw), Basilisk Collar (because lifelink is super good), Batterskull (see prior), Champion's Helm (because hexproof is important), Embercleave (for obvious reasons), Golem-Skin Gauntlets (because more power is better), Heirloom Blade (because it's a steep stat boost and a death trigger, maybe), Loxodon Warhammer (because lifelink is basically super-vigilance anyway), Prowler's Helm (because evasion is nice), Rogue's Gloves (because card draw is good to have), Shadowspear (because it's nuts), The Sword Cycle (because you feel like droppin 16,000,000,000$), Sword of Vengeance (because holy keywords, Batman!)

TheDeckMaker2300 on Flipping Awesome - Zndrsplt & Okaun [Primer]

1 month ago

Hey just wanted to say this deck looks awsome

Surprised neither Laboratory Maniac nor Jace, Wielder of Mysteries is in your deck

It’s a alternative to the zndrsplt and Efreet win

Not to mention you could say the same for

Niv-Mizzet, Parun,Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind And Psychosis Crawler

And not a win-con but The Locust God nice syngry with zndrsplt
