Awesome build.

Out of curiosity, what's your opinion on Niv-Mizzet, Parun vs. Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind? In a more reactive meta, would it be worth running the former?

Norin the Cautious

Legendary Creature - Human Coward

Whenever you are attacked, or whenever Norin the Cautious is blocked or targeted by a spell or ability an opponent controls, you may return it to its owner's hand.

If you would cycle Norin the Cautious, rather than putting it into the graveyard you may pay an additional and return it to its owner's hand instead.

Cycling

"Whew, okay Norin... You've got this. There's nothing dow- OH WHAT WAS THAT!?"

I have replaced Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind with Niv-Mizzet, Parun , because the latter is superior in almost every way; he does have a stricter casting cost, but I specifically gave this deck a mana base that could handle such costs, so I am certain that I shall not encounter too many problems in summoning him.

DemonDragonJ on Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind or Niv-Mizzet, ...

In both my red/white/blue and red/black/blue EDH decks, I have Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind , but I am contemplating replacing him with Niv-Mizzet, Parun , since the latter card is superior in virtually every way, but the only reason for which I have not yet done so is because of the latter card's very heavy color weight, so I am seeking advice from the other members of this forum on this subject.

Three mana of each of two colors may be extreme for a three-colored deck, but each of those decks has plenty of three-colored cards, and I specifically gave those decks mana bases that can support cards with color-heavy casting costs, so I really see no reason to not make that replacement.

What does everyone else say on this subject? Should I replace Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind with Niv-Mizzet, Parun ?

After much deliberation, I have replaced Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind with Bloodwater Entity , which lowered the average converted mana cost of this deck even further, from 4.11 to 4.06, because, as great as Niv-Mizzet is, the entity better suits the overall theme of this deck.

I have replaced Borborygmos with Sunder Shaman and Simic Sky Swallower with Winged Coatl , which lowered the average converted mana cost of this deck from 4.23 to 4.11, and those creatures are also better when copied.

I still feel that there is room for improvement in this deck; specifically, neither Ral Zarek nor Sarkhan Unbroken contribute to its overall theme, so I may possibly replace them. I already have Prophetic Bolt in this deck, but Ral's Outburst would be nice for its redundancy. Izzet Charm is nice, but Growth Spiral also is would be great for this deck. I also am hoping to find a way to put either Eternal Witness or Mulldrifter in this deck, and I wonder if I should replace Akroma, Angel of Fury , Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind , or Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir , as well; Bloodwater Entity would be a nice addition to this deck, since its abilities are cumulative when it is copied. What does everyone else say about that?
