Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind Discussion

chromiumthemutable on Mizzix of the Izmagnus

5 days ago

Melek, Izzet Paragon, Goblin Electromancer, Galvanoth and Djinn Illuminatus are some creatures. Also, at the point that this deck is over $1000, i think you can afford to pay $3 for any form of Niv- Mizzet - namely, Niv-Mizzet, Parun, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, or Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius. Boomerang and Vapor Snag are some return cards. Another return is Ral's Dispersal, which is only good with Ral, Caller of Storms. Tandem Lookout, Ophidian Eye, and Curiosity all go with Niv- Mizzet. For the same reason as Goblin Electromancer, i think Jace's Sanctum and Baral, Chief of Compliance are good.

I don't think it exists. I mean, the only other card I know like it was Mind Over Matter, and that isn't modern legal either.

I do know of a single modern l;egal way to do it, but not infinitely, Niv-Mizzet, Parun/Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Neheb, the Eternal

Hey, nice start for a budget Commander deck. All my card suggestions are budget, no card over $4 and most are less than $1.

Consider Curiosity and Ophidian Eye? Either one goes infinite when Niv is enchanted by one of them. When Niv is enchanted do attack damage to an opponent or draw a card to do 1 damage to opponent this then draws you a card thanks to Curiosity or Eye. When you draw a card Niv does 1 damage to opponent and it now loops because doing any amount of damage to your opponent with Niv lets you draw a card thanks to Curisoity or Eye and when you draw a card you then do 1 damage to an opponent thanks to Niv.

Niv-Mizzet's mana cost is very difficult to make with the current manabase. To help to cast Niv consider more mana fixing and ramp?

Mana rocks to consider adding:

Cheap mana cost draw is great with Niv, there's already a few a good cards here that draw, but consider more draw?

Draw to consider adding:

Other cards to consider adding:


Cards to consider cutting:

  • Fire Urchin
  • Firebrand Archer
  • Jhoira of the Ghitu
  • Kiln Fiend
  • Mercurial Geists
  • Narcomoeba
  • Nivmagus Elemental
  • Scribe of the Mindful
  • Wall of Mist
  • Chandra, Pyrogenius
  • Dragon's Claw
  • Blazing Salvo
  • Cancel
  • Countervailing Winds
  • Rakshasa's Disdain
  • Rift Bolt
  • Sinister Sabotage
  • Unsummon
  • Blazing Volley
  • Drowned Secrets

Good luck with your deck.


eliakimras on niv draw ping deck

There is a simple (and cheap money-wise) infinite combo: Niv-Mizzet, Parun/Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Curiosity/Ophidian Eye/Tandem Lookout + any draw. Draw, then deal 1 damage with Niv-Mizzet, then draw, then deal 1 damage, then draw, then... to kill all your opponents. // Maybe you should run more ways to guarantee you can cast your commander: Swiftwater Cliffs, Izzet Boilerworks, Evolving Wilds, Terramorphic Expanse, Command Tower, Shivan Reef, Wandering Fumarole, Temple of Epiphany, Myriad Landscape, Lonely Sandbar, Forgotten Cave (they can uncounterably start the infinite combo with the cycling abitily), Izzet Signet, Gilded Lotus, Darksteel Ingot, Izzet Cluestone, Commander's Sphere (they can also start the infinite combo right away).

cdkime on Nekusar, the Mindrazer

Couple quick points based on my experiences with Nekusar:

  1. Cut Day's Undoing - it's an objectively awful card in this deck. Day's Undoing ends the turn while Nekusar's damage triggers are on the stack--as such, they get to draw a bunch of new cards and refresh their hand, but don't take any damage for doing so.

  2. I would cut the Howling Mine effects. They're just not powerful enough to justify inclusion. Think of it this way--if you're playing a 4 player game, it's giving you one card for every three it gives to opponents. Further, they have no built-in damage effects, so they rely too heavily on other items being fielded.

  3. Spellbook doesn't do much for you. There are enough other ways to increase your hand size in this deck.

  4. I would not run Temple Bell unless you are also running Mind Over Matter and Laboratory Maniac for the near-infinite combo.

  5. Curiosity, Sigil of Sleep, Helm of the Ghastlord, and Phyresis are powerhouses when enchanted on Nekusar. Sigil of Sleep turns every wheel spell into a massive bounce spell. Phyresis can quickly end games (though, if you are in a casual meta, they might not like you using Infect). Curiosity and Helm of the Ghastlord both go near-infinite with Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, and generate significant card draw with Nekusar. On Nekusar, Helm of the Ghastlord locks down your opponents from drawing new cards, limiting them to playing instant-speed spells.

Hope some of that helps!

goblinguiderevealpls on Timetwister loops

1 month ago

personally its the only thing missing from my cedh nekusar primer list in paper form.. having an Underworld Dreams out in a timetwister loop is very satisfying lol

but theoretically its the only power 9 card legal in edh and is thus included in a vazt majority of blue decks who can afford to run it. im sure there are a few exceptions but I've seen a timetwister in most blue cedh lists that are fully optimal

if you want to build a deck around twister i would recommend a commander that benefits from the infinite draws like Nekusar, the Mindrazer, Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, The Locust God, Edric, Spymaster of Trest
