Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind Discussion

Starsky2814 on Michael Bay presents... Omnath: Age of Explosions

3 days ago

ZendikariWol and Descole, thank you so much for the feedback! It was all very insightful and I will take all suggestions into careful consideration. I took off the custom categories for now until I can clean it up and get a proper description typed up.

As for some of the deck commanders I face regularly, they would be: Scion of the Ur-Dragon, The Gitrog Monster, Norin the Wary, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Jhoira of the Ghitu, Talrand, Sky Summoner, Vial Smasher the Fierce, Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Ayli, Eternal Pilgrim, Rashmi, Eternities Crafter, Maelstrom Wanderer, Noyan Dar, Roil Shaper, Sliver Overlord, Sharuum the Hegemon.

As for a game plan, my goal is to ramp as much as possible early on. Get Omnath out by turn four, create as much elementals as possible and give them haste to attack immediately then sac the majority of them for additional damage. It is crucial for me to have draw mechanics, ramp and haste early on to have game advantage. In my playgroup especially, it is always a race to get early field advantage and take out those who try to WinCon as early as turn 3-6. I hope this helps.

Jace Beleren acts as a nice version of Temple Bell with his +2 and -1. Jace, Memory Adept is also nice because of that ulti.

Spiteful Visions, Fevered Visions, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Psychosis Crawler, Forced Fruition, Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, Temple Bell, Dictate of Kruphix, Kederekt Parasite, Nin, the Pain Artist, Otherworld Atlas, Price of Knowledge, Bloodchief Ascension, Phyrexian Tyranny, Well of Ideas, and Ob Nixilis Reignited are also really nice cards that can go crazy with Nekusar.

Instead of Snapcaster Mage, you can run Yawgmoth's Will and/or Magus of the Will for greater recursion, since Snappy only targets one spell.

So, you said we can comment if we think a commander has been placed in the wrong tier, and I would argue that Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius should be tier 3. First of all, he's a 5/5 flier, so killing someone with commander damage is entirely possible. Additionally, because of the card advantage he grants, you will pretty much always have a full hand. And, while unlike with Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, he does not make a 2 card infinite combo, should you make an infinite mana combo, of which there are several in UR, you can do infinite damage without decking yourself because his ability is optional.

Have you considered adding Coat of Arms? That card's pretty good in tribal decks. I'd also recommend Azami, Lady of Scrolls for massive draw with your wizards, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir for just being an all around good card, and Jeskai Ascendancy for buffing your creatures, giving you a little bit of extra card filtering, and giving you repeated activations of the creatures with tap abilities (Arcanis the Omnipotent, Beguiler of Wills, Mercurial Chemister, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, Sigil Tracer, and Azami if you add her).

Thank you guys, Sorry I haven't replied. I had to go to the hospital, passed out because of a concussion, I'm alright. Any who, away with my life back to MTG Commander.

Ok so DrLitebur Krenko/Purphoros are both great options, I was leaning to Grenzo, Havoc Raiser. Though obviously Krenko would probably be more effective. Riku of Two Reflections Is something I should have mentioned, there's a guy in our playgroup that plays him, I just forgot cause he's not always there.

schmugluglu Brion Stoutarm is pretty cool, but honestly I just don't feel like I would enjoy it.

OMG Unlife you track me don't you? Sidisi and Skittles are both commanders I've tried to make on TappedOut, Sidisi is soooo cool, but most of friends run graveyard hate, the only one that doesn't is animar. Skittles on the other hand, has infect, he's 100% cool and really strong. Though my playgroup stays away from Infect as an honor rule.

hardhitta71194 Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is pretty good, but I like creatures and he's kinda a mildly creatureless deck. He's just not what I'm looking for right now.

Flagellum Boy you got a couple to list here. I've already mentioned Purphoros, but you got more there to talk about. Talrand, Sky Summoner he's one I've never fully considered, lot's of creatures and let's me play with things in terms of what spells I use. I'll play with building him a bit, and see if it pops. Zada, Hedron Grinder is pretty interesting but one of my players tried to make Zada before. It didn't do very well, I'll ask him if I play around with it. Moving on. Doran, the Siege Tower OooOooh I always thought of him as the "Treefolk Guy" but I suppose you could play him a pseudo aggro and messing around with some stuff, I'll do some digging. Edric, Spymaster of Trest I've considered him, using unblockable stuff and beastmaster ascension, I legitimately feel I would use Ezuri over him, but edric would be a member of the 99.

Ok so thank you guys I will write more of these down

Thank you all, you're all awesome
