I saw your post in response to The First Sliver versus Niv-Mizzet Reborn , and wanted to follow-up since you seemed interested in the topic and provided a non-trivial response.

The First Sliver is a strict upgrade to Niv-Mizzet Reborn for a couple reasons. To start, you seemed to be thinking of the Sliver in terms of tribal synergies. That is not how it is built in cEDH - rather, TFS is a combo deck just like Niv and Tazri before.

Therein lies its competitive superiority - Tazri finds allies; Niv finds multicoloured; TFS finds every card in your deck with a CMC of 4 or less. You have no dead cards in your entire deck, and it drastically increases the availability of combo pieces you can run.

Further, since Cascade is on the cast, Torpor Orb does not shut TFS down, where it would the other two.

Ultimately, TFS does everything the two predecessor decks did, it just does them a whole lot better and more resiliently.

The massive changes to burn spells allowing them to hit "any target" or "target planeswalker" improved a whole host of cards, as the burn spells could hit a planeswalker even if their controller had player-based hexproof .

A whole host of cards were also made better by the removal of mana burn, notably Braid of Fire .

TypicalTimmy - That Food Chain combo is a staple of competitive EDH. The battleplan is to generate infinite mana first, then infinitely sacrifice a commander with an ETB ability that fetches you the cards you need to win on the spot. Originally the commander of choice was General Tazri , as she could fetch allies that won with the infinite combo. Niv-Mizzet Reborn was dominant for a brief period of time, but it is looking like The First Sliver will be the Food Chain commander of choice once Modern Horizons is released, since you can use its own cascade ability to cast your entire deck.

So, below is a list of cards I am considering adding. Thank you Struyk for some ideas! I am not a fan of the Sarkans though. None of them are really good enough to make the deck. Let me know what you think about the list, and what you think I should cut from the deck!

The easiest way to speed up a deck is by removing ETB tapped lands. I highly suggest running Command Tower , as well as City of Brass and Mana Confluence . If you have access to it, Cavern of Souls is a good option for any tribal deck, but Unclaimed Territory is another good option. Forbidden Orchard , Exotic Orchard and Reflecting Pool are more interesting lands to consider.

Green dorks and two-mana rocks are also very good. I see you're running Birds of Paradise , but Elves of Deep Shadow , Llanowar Elves , Rampant Growth , Fyndhorn Elves , Orcish Lumberjack and (if you can) Noble Hierarch are also great additions. If you want to invest relatively heavily into your dork-base, Bloom Tender is REALLY good in chromatic decks. If you find yourself facing a lot of blue decks, Carpet of Flowers is a good idea, too; Joiner Adept acts as a second Chromatic Lantern .

Fellwar Stone is good. The talisman cycles ( Talisman of Dominance , Talisman of Indulgence , Talisman of Impulse , Talisman of Unity , Talisman of Progress and the new five from Modern Horizons) are all good; I suggest that most, if not all, of your mana rocks should be two or less mana. Using a land like Ancient Tomb also helps cast these turn one. Signets like Dimir Signet or Boros Signet are good too, although I think most of the time the talismans will be better. Gilded Lotus is a good exception to my CMC rule in a deck with as many fat creatures as yours.

I don't think Nissa's Renewal is very good; generally, ramp is good in the early game, but not so good by the time you reach six mana. Nature's Lore , Rampant Growth , Farseek , Cultivate and/or Kodama's Reach are all powerful ramp spells you can fire off early. I think the first three are better, if only because they can fetch non-basics like Breeding Pool or Godless Shrine . I'm not as much a fan of the other two, but experience will show if they're worth including. Finally, I think Skyshroud Claim is better than Explosive Vegetation .

If you're going in the Quicksilver Amulet direction, Elvish Piper and Thran Temporal Gateway are good ideas as well.

If at all possible, tutors are good. Demonic Tutor is the gold standard here, but Diabolic Tutor is a good, more affordable alternative. Vampiric Tutor , Worldly Tutor , Sylvan Tutor , Dark Petition and Gamble are all good cards as well, though their affordability varies tremendously.

Red comes with good counter counter magic options. Price of Glory is a good card if you want to discourage opponents playing on your turn, and Pyroblast is a good way to stop Counterspell and friends. Cards like Pyrostatic Pillar can punish decks with lower curves.

Card draw is at a premium in EDH. Staff of Nin is easy on the colored mana and gives you an extra draw each turn, and Phyrexian Arena is another good option. Harmonize , Concentrate and Painful Truths are good draw-threes.

Because your deck is running a LOT of fatties (and the best fatties, at that, 'cause they're dragons), you may find cards like Lurking Predators is be pretty good; Descendants' Path is a similar card. Depending on how fatty-heavy your meta is, Eureka effects like Show and Tell may be good. Sneak Attack is good if you want to use one-time face-smacks like Nicol Bolas or your already included Oros, the Avenger .

If you DON'T want to run dorks, and opt for artifact ramp instead, depending on your meta you may have a good time with cards like Porphyry Nodes or Night of Souls' Betrayal . Effects like Pyroclasm and Volcanic Fallout can also wipe out opponent's boards if they choose to go wide.

I think EDH decks tend to need a lot of mass removal. By Force is a favorite of mine, and Toxic Deluge , Wrath of God , Ritual of Soot and Supreme Verdict are all great if you have access to them. Back to Nature is good if you choose to cut down on the number of enchantments you're running, but Nature's Claim or Krosan Grip are also pretty good options.

If your curve is really high, things like Timesifter can be pretty brutal.

I'm not super sure Niv-Mizzet Reborn is very good. I don't know if you'll be getting very much card advantage, because you have a lot of cards that are more or less than exactly two colors. I think a card-draw spell like the ones I mentioned above would be better, like Treasure Cruise or Dig Through Time .

Good luck with deck building my man!

Mayushii- thanks for the input! Yeah I had Niv-Mizzet Reborn in the initial concept for a long time, if for no other reason to fetch with Sarkhan Unbroken ! I was just trying to lower my curve as much as possible. A lot of my first drafts focus on trimming the top of the curve as much as possible. I really really wanna find a way to jam Primevals' Glorious Rebirth but its sooo expensive lol

@cdkime: you are wrong for multiple reasons. Good news: I am here to rectify your errors.

1: Niv-Mizzet Reborn has better artwork
2: The First Sliver is a sliver. Niv is a dragon. Dragons are superior to slivers.
3: This is a trading post. Not a deck building post.

Creating Niv-Mizzet Reborn food chain. Need the following cards: Eternal Scourge , Misthollow Griffin , Lotus Petal , Necropotence , Extract , Circu, Dimir Lobotomist , and Sparkcaster .

As these cards are cheap, trades must include more-than-one of them (ie necropotence AND circu).

Let's try a binder link. Binder updated may 26th.
