Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind Discussion

Here are some cards that I might immediately cut:

Academy Elite, Aeon Chronicler, Bloodbraid Elf, Bogardan Hellkite, Breaker of Armies, Dragon Mage, Flameblast Dragon, Hamletback Goliath, Hermit of the Natterknolls  Flip, Horizon Chimera, Hypersonic Dragon, Inkwell Leviathan, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Keranos, God of Storms, Kruphix, God of Horizons, Lorescale Coatl, Magus of the Future, Melek, Izzet Paragon, Memnarch, Mindwrack Liege, Murkfiend Liege, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Nylea, God of the Hunt, Psychosis Crawler, Purphoros, God of the Forge, Quicksilver Gargantuan, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Scute Mob, Servant of the Conduit, Shipbreaker Kraken, Simic Sky Swallower, Somberwald Stag, Spellbreaker Behemoth, Spellheart Chimera, Surrak Dragonclaw, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Thassa, God of the Sea, Thromok the Insatiable, Tireless Tracker, Verdant Force, Vexing Shusher, Wall of Blossoms, Whisperwood Elemental, Wistful Selkie, Xenagos, God of Revels, Clan Defiance, Crater's Claws, Devastation Tide, Minds Aglow, Mizzix's Mastery, Reforge the Soul, Release the Gremlins, Seismic Stomp, Shamanic Revelation, Sylvan Scrying, Traverse the Ulvenwald, Unexpected Results, Urban Evolution, Volcanic Vision, Wheel of Fate, Arcane Denial, Clip Wings, Counterflux, Counterspell, Cyclonic Rift, Desertion, Disallow, Disdainful Stroke, Evacuation, Heroic Intervention, Insidious Will, Krosan Grip, Naturalize, Negate, Plasm Capture, Sulfurous Blast, Trap Essence, Turn Aside, Unsubstantiate, Visions of Beyond, Void Shatter, Voidslime, and TBH there are simply too many things to cut to list them all because my fingers are getting tired. I'd cut most of your planeswalkers, most of your non-ramp artifacts, and most of your enchantments.

My primary piece of advice here is that 1) You really should choose to prioritize abusing creatures OR spells, not both, because there are simply too few slots, and 2) you want your spells/creatures to do things in multiples. You don't need too much draw here because your mana is tied up doubling splashy spells, but you need a heck of a lot of mana ramp to keep up.

I don't mean to sound curt, sorry :( Hope this was at least a bit helpful! I agree with Lilbrudder that it's simply too many cards to reasonably cut down, and that you should take a little time and find a focus for the deck.

Jeleva is good.

I looked into my Nekusar, the Mindrazer for the cards I suggested. It relies on a strategy of forcing opponents to draw cards and take damage as well as milling them and making them take damage. Forking a Wheel of Fortune with Nekusar, the Mindrazer out equipped with a Helm of the Ghastlord and a Sphinx's Tutelage on the board and you have probably milled half of their deck/won the game.

Sire Of Insanity can be ridiculous fun if you pair it with Library of Leng in a Nekusar deck. Also Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind can be good too. Throw in a Stranglehold and your opponents have to top-deck a counter rather than tutoring for it.

cut isolation cell and instead put in Chalice of the Void, also get Ancestral Vision, Serum Visions, and maybe put in black for Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, theres a nice infinite combo with curiosity + niv mizzet that does infinite damage and card draw. also, since you have enough artifacts, maybe Thoughtcast

I'm refining a themed EDH deck built around Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind with a focus on Izzet flavor, I want to make sure I'm not missing anything. The deck is The Izzet Equation - Themed Budget EDH. Thanks for any suggestions!

Pretty cool. Just a note, Tandem Lookout is an infinite combo with Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, but not with Psychosis Crawler. Because Crawler doesn't deal damage, it makes them lose life.

Love these two as a partner combination. Some suggestions to help go infinite:

Staff of Domination: If you've drawn five or more cards on your turn you can go infinite with Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix. Infinite colorless, infinite life, draw your entire deck.

Mind Over Matter: This card is really good for a deck like this based around tapping shenanigans. You can also go infinite with this and Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind.

I have also picked up these two as partner commanders, my version is group hug but you might find some cards in it that peek your interest: Temur Wizard Hugs

I can't find your Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind in your decks lists, might be set as private, or I might just suck at using this program, very real possibility.

Tolaria West is great, I could tutor a mama source, I don't need the hand size just yet because it's not quite tuned enough for me to have more than 7 unless I have like 40.

Jace Beleren pretty awesome, I worry about loading my opponents hands though, sometimes I'm barely hanging on, I don't have the draw engine like a Niv-Mizzet would have so makes sense. I could just use the -1 but trying to find more instant/sorcery and reduce non-spells to get better production from Melek while combo'ing.

Nice to see you have the greatest track ever recorded in your profile there, cash moves everything around me.
