Niv-Mizzet Reborn

Legendary Creature — Dragon Avatar


When Niv-Mizzet Reborn enters the battlefield, reveal the top ten cards of your library. For each color pair, choose a card that's exactly those colors from among them. Put the chosen cards into your hand and the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

+1 This is a great battlecruiser!

You already have the most important card, Chromatic Lantern . You might even run Trophy Mage just to tutor it.

You already have all the Tri Lands. That's great! I think those are super solid.

When I started, I had a 5-color, 60-card 4x Sliver Overlord deck from way-back-when that I converted to Commander. WUBRG was a struggle for Pauper! Instead of buying Fetch Lands, I first got all the Vivid Lands. Then I centered my Ramp package around Nature's Lore , Farseek , Skyshroud Claim , and Hunting Wilds ; I searched for Forest Battle Lands and Bicycle Lands before upgrading to Shock Lands. Murmuring Bosk is a hidden gem of a Forest Tri Land. Once I had a solid 12-14 Ramp like this, it became very consistent.

My favorite deck right now is my Karona/ Hugs/ Politics. It is mostly carried by Land Tax , but does very well with its janky mana base. Recently I won by exiling my library with Thought Lash and then casting Nexus of Fate over and over, and killing everyone with my 8/8 commander!

Fires of Invention is my favorite right now and it is worth considering in any 5-color and definitely goes in any Battlecruiser deck.

Buy a Smothering Tithe while the're still $8!!!

Run Sakura-Tribe Elder in almost every deck.

And how is Niv-Mizzet Reborn working for you? Another buddy of mine bought the Commander's Quarters Budget Version, but its a tricky deck. Niv seems best when you're dedicated to "color-pair tribal" because his "exactly those colors" clause is very restrictive. Have you considered Scion of the Ur-Dragon , The Ur-Dragon , Ramos, Dragon Engine , or Morophon, the Boundless ? Scion is the cheapest and the most fun, imo.

Besides that, it looks powerful! Maybe put Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon into The Mimeoplasm just because its more likely to 1-shot someone in that deck? Idk seems pretty sweet... Also, consider finding a card or a 2-card combo for all of your decks that can "win out of nowhere" so if someone locks down the board, you can work a miracle.

I can recommend a lot of 5-color decks, but it depends on what kind of card you want to build around. My emry deck can be a 5-c sideboard artifact deck, and my other Granted deck is 5-c Superfriends. Are you wanting a Niv-Mizzet Reborn deck? A Golos, Tireless Pilgrim deck? What cards in particular are you looking at?

Those are some good suggestions but I believe they might be too slow for this deck and instead want to be in the five color Niv-Mizzet Reborn version of the deck.

I love themed decks like this - such a cool design! However where is love for Liliana? She was a member of the Gatewatch too. In order to support the 5 colors you could have Niv-Mizzet Reborn as the commander. Then the commander is on theme too!

Have you considering Chromatic Lantern or Niv-Mizzet Reborn , it might help with the colour matching.

Jeskai Charm is not exactly two colors, so you can never put it in your hand from Niv-Mizzet Reborn . I'm not sure what two green cards you had or what you mean by "made it alright", but with the effect you get to put up to one revealed card each that is exactly WU, WB, UB, UR, BR, BG, RG, RW, GW, GU. If they have any more or less colors than two they can not be put into your hand, if you reveal more than one card with exactly the same two colors you pick one to put into your hand.

Emrakul's Influence specifies "Eldrazi creature card". All Is Dust is an Eldrazi card, but is not a creature card. So it will not trigger Emrakul's Influence .

For the first question, Niv-Mizzet Reborn 's ability lets you keep one card for each color pair, but it must be exactly that color pair. So Rakdos Charm should work, but Jeskai Charm is three colors and therefore not a valid choice. And if you reveal both Rakdos Charm and Rakdos Firewheeler , for example, then you can only keep one of them.

I don't know which two green cards you were fetching that were fine.

The basic idea behind Niv-Mizzet's ability is that if you're supremely lucky, you will reveal exactly one card that represents each guild on Ravnica (so if your reveal hits one of each guild charm, then you can keep them all, because they are each exactly two colors, and there is exactly one for each color pair).

Regarding your second question, Emrakul's Influence has a triggered ability, not an activated ability (it's an important distinction). In order for it to trigger, you must cast an Eldrazi creature spell. While All Is Dust is Eldrazi Tribal and thus has a creature type, it is not a creature spell (it needs "Creature" on the type line to qualify).
