Niv-Mizzet, Parun Discussion

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .

The Chain Veil , Inexorable Tide , Contagion Clasp , and Contagion Engine maybe?

One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

Removal: Capsize , Bedevil , Hero's Downfall , Chaos Warp , Kolaghan's Command , Reality Shift , Pongify , Rapid Hybridization , Vraska's Contempt , Rakdos Charm , Price of Fame , In Bolas's Clutches , Plaguecrafter , Merciless Executioner , Fleshbag Marauder , Unstable Obelisk , Vandalblast , By Force , Shatterstorm , Hostage Taker , Yawgmoth's Vile Offering , Settle the Score , Dark Impostor , Hour of Glory , Sever the Bloodline , Silence the Believers , Spread the Sickness , Slave of Bolas , Electrodominance

Draw: (I would add Erebos once you're home) Patient Rebuilding , Phyrexian Arena , Greed , Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip, Notion Thief , Windfall , Mystical Tutor , Blue Sun's Zenith , Pull from Tomorrow , Stroke of Genius , Braingeyser , Mind Spring , Expansion / Explosion , Invoke the Firemind , Deliver Unto Evil , Augur of Bolas , Painful Truths , Fevered Visions , Search for Azcanta  Flip, Fact or Fiction , Dig Through Time , Treasure Cruise , Tidings , Thassa, God of the Sea , Day's Undoing , Reforge the Soul , Standstill , Deep Analysis , Necrologia , Steady Progress , Tezzeret's Gambit , Oath of Jace

Thanks for the info, as I said I am grateful for any help people can give. I will try and get the cards you mentioned and add them, I have another Niv-Mizzet, Parun on its way to me so will get that up to three like you said. Thanks for the tip on Izzet Boilerworks I guess I should replace that with another Sulfur Falls

Also Arcane Artisan seems like some cute tech if you put in maybe a Niv-Mizzet, Parun . Also instant speed gilded drake token seems like a really good way to get someone.

Corvaxis Thanks for the comments! Money is a bit of a factor, so it might be tricky to get another Hydroid Krasis for a while. Originally, I tried having more focus on counters, but found that too slow, especially against aggro. The main reason I sideboarded Lava Coil and added Shock is because Shock is a bit more flexible than Lava Coil. The main focus is getting Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Saheeli, Sublime Artificer out asap and getting value out of my spells quickly. Lava Coil only works on creatures, so against a creatureless deck it's pretty much a dead card I can only use on my own creatures (though to be fair, this also applies to Root Snare , which for some reason I hadn't thought about). I will consider picking up another Cindervines though. I haven't gotten to test this out much since putting things together this way, but it does seem improved over the counter focus it had before. I wonder though, should I add more Cindervines, or should I instead keep the number I have and instead pick up a couple Ral, Storm Conduit copies? Ral and Niv seem like they should be deadly together.

Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Enter the Infinite with Curiosity or Tandem Lookout or Ophidian Eye make a great winning combo, Finale of Revelation , Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and Laboratory Maniac help win after Enter the Infinite goes off! Thought Vessel will give you more probability to get that no maximum hand size

DarkStarStorm How about the following wording, just to keep it consistent with the other entries:

"a deck that gains advantages through casting instants and sorceries to support aggressive creatures like Nivix Cyclops or card advantage sources like Niv-Mizzet, Parun ."

Thanks for helping me out with this one, I was a little soft on it.

For the accordion, I'll start working on that tomorrow.
