Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind Discussion

TheBlackMirror on Draw Engine Commanders

3 days ago

Thinking of making a deck based around drawing cards, but I have 3 commanders to choose from;

Selvala, Explorer Returned

Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind

Edric, Spymaster of Trest

Please comment which you think I should choose!

For people on the "ban Doubling Season" hype train here. Here are all the commanders that go infinite with a single card:

Ad that's not even counting all the cards that are essentially a 1 card combo in and of themselves, like:

Or all the commanders who win the game automatically if you can get a simple infinite mana combo off, which are too many to list here.

My point is that Commander is already super broken on a competitive level because the RC doesn't care about banning competitive cards. Having Doubling Season with PW commanders doesn't even come close to the level of broken that's already possible in EDH, and it would be stupid to ban it. (Especially since it's a lot harder to cheat out a 5 mana enchantment than a lot of the combos I listed above.)

On another note, I think Nissa, Vital Force would make a super awesome Gaea's Cradle commander.

Can we see what you have already?

Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Ophidian Eye or Curiosity This usually works better if the deck is built around it so that you have pieces to reshuffle hand/graveyard into library. Good reason to have Laboratory Maniac.

Arcanis the Omnipotent + Mind Over Matter Very similar to above as you can draw infinitely but by using arcanis with this there is a lot of other things you can untap and activate over and over.

For the guys saying Doubling Season would need to be banned all I can say is what about all the commanders that combo with one other card for a win?

Sydri, Galvanic Genius + Aetherflux Reservoir

Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Curiosity or Ophidian Eye

And there are others but none of the planes walkers would be 2 card win combos while these are.... Some absurd effects sure but remember it is sorcery speed and doubling season has to come out first.

Although he may be expensive, I found Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind combos very well with Willbreaker may be worth experimenting...

DrukenReaps on Group Hug

Group Hug is a strategy I keep meaning to do and just haven't yet... I keep getting stuck on a commander.

I thought Nekusar, the Mindrazer would work but a friend of mine already built that and another friend uses Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind so nekusar just hands him the win most the time without a fight.

I don't want to do Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis since that is also being done already.

Zedruu the Greathearted seems rather interesting and easy to add a little chaos too. I'd be stretching my boros support pretty thin though since I have Mardu and Naya already.

Are there any other rather interesting ones who don't focus just on giving everyone card draw? That is why I like zedruu it is permanents I give out not always cards they want.
