Niv-Mizzet, Parun Discussion

multimedia on Budget Commander with Jace

Hey, make your deck here at this site? Edit the topic with a link to your deck and if you would like I will help you with it. For your budget of $100 I suggest a mono blue or two color deck. I wouldn't go three or more colors because the manabase will be bad with such a low budget. Mono blue lets you add quite a few other expensive cards because you don't have to worry as much about getting dual lands for the manabase since it's all Islands.

To start out consider choosing one of these options?

Brago is interesting with any Jace Planeswalker because you can blink Jace to use his loyalty ability again for the turn. You can do this for as many Planeswalkers as you have on the battlefield. This is actually pretty good with budget Jace, Architect of Thought to get two mini Fact or Fiction each turn or Jace Beleren to draw two cards a turn. Add Oath of Teferi and Oath of Gideon for more blink/Planeswalker goodness :) Azorius also has quite a few good/playable budget dual lands to use in the manabase.

Vanquishermm on Mizzet Phoenix: Draw a Card, Win the Game

heckproof, I have a small correction-because Goryo's Vengeance gives Niv-Mizzet, Parun haste, you can attack with him to try and start the combo immediately. However, if he is blocked, nothing happens. He has to do damage specifically to an opponent to start the combo. So, you still have to wait until you draw a card, or for you/your opponent to cast an instant/sorcery. It’s still not as efficient as Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind

Hi, heckproof! While I do like Niv-Mizzet, Parun , actually more than Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind , the Firemind is better for this deck. Yes, I can start the combo with both, but to do so with Parun, I have to do damage to an opponent, draw a card, or have myself or my opponent cast an instant/sorcery. If I don’t have extra mana, I can’t do any of that, so a turn 3 win wouldn’t be possible. With the Firemind, I am able to tap him to start the combo, 100% of the time. Believe me, the art for Parun is cooler, and him having an extra power and toughness over the Firemind is also nice, but the deck is simply slower with Parun.

I feel like the new Niv is better overall, especially because you’re already running the full four Manamorphose . Niv-Mizzet, Parun still combos with Curiosity

I'm working on building a budget-friendly Niv-Mizzet, Parun combo EDH deck: Budget Niv-Mizzet, Parun Combo EDH. The win conditions are all laid out in the decks descriptions, they are all fairly straight forward. If you have any tips or suggestions for the deck please let me know!

Coward_Token You know what, I actually removed Keeper of Keys from my physical decklist, I should update this but I've been trying to solidify what I want to change. I think that Marchesa's Decree is a great idea. I personally am going to be getting a Queen Marchesa deck soon so I don't know if I'll get it for this deck to avoid overlap, but it does do its job pretty well. On the other hand, it does mean that players draw cards from Ludevic from attacking you so it could actually cause you to take more damage than average. I'll try to update the list soon! I do agree that Keeper of Keys is too slow though, and I've been trying to make the deck more spellslinger-y with Niv-Mizzet, Parun and Living Lore , and some X mass-damage spells.

I you add colors, Black Blue Red is the best you can do in standard, and you will want the full four Dragons Hoard. (In Grixis colors you have Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip, and Niv-Mizzet, Parun )

Kargan is pretty bad, I would cut it for more early interaction like Lava Coil , Shock or Lightning Strike .

I mean I kinda think both the decks are going for a similar theme with the draw=burn. Except with Nekusar, the Mindrazer I guess you have to worry about your opponents drawing into their good stuff faster, but you get access to all those really good black tutor spells while with Niv-Mizzet, Parun you have a lot of answers with an Izzet deck.
