Nivmagus Elemental Discussion

lagotripha on How to: Play Magic for ~$6.

There are a number of cheap, effective red kards Keldon Marauders has fallen out of favour, but is a 2 mana lava axe when it works. Nivmagus Elemental is cheap and provides limited counterspell protection and the oppertunity for combo finishes with Temur Battle Rage. Sin Prodder is dirt cheap and very effective, even without cheap delve.

With super budget the lack of lightning bolt hurts red, and lack of boros charm red white so janky combo is usually the most functional option. Board flooding with Mogg War Marshal, Foundry Street Denizen Dragon Fodder Battle Hymn Dragonrage Akroan Crusader Empty the Warrens, Haze of Rage and so forth to spam out a win. Guttersnipe used to be good but has fallen to more efficient options, leaving him pretty cheap.

Human tribal with Keldon Marauders/Thatcher Revolt/Kessig Malcontents is functional, especially with Gather the Townsfolk and Dearly Departed/Cathartic Reunion. For the non-$10 version there are some very competitive lists out there, but there are a lot of cards in modern that aren't valuable because they just aren't in short supply but are still super good.

How about Nivmagus Elemental to make use of spell copies that you would prefer to not resolve or to create a late game beater?

I don't think Nivmagus Elemental is where you want to be, when Monastery Swiftspear exists.

Monastery Swiftspear seems like a better fit than Nivmagus Elemental. You want to cast the spells not exile them that way you trigger the creature abilities. So it just seems like a better fit. Cool deck +1.

Also worth noting. Player 4 casts Wheel of Fortune. You (player 1) activate Lion's Eye Diamond. Player 2 and 3 pass priority (they didn't actually have counter spells). Now Player 4 gets priority, because they have not had priority since you took an action (even though that action didn't use the stack). Now when they pass priority Wheel of Fortune resolves. It's unlikely Player 4 will do anything, as they didn't before you activated Lion's Eye Diamond, but they might want to counter their own spell now that you're handless (maybe they have Nivmagus Elemental on the battlefield), and they will have that opportunity.

And/or if I exile a spell (like with Nivmagus Elemental) while Possibility Storm's ability is on the stack, will Possibility Storm still resolve?

I'm asking because Possibility Storm doesn't specify that it only resolved if the initial spell is successfully exiled this way.

also the exile spell creature is Nivmagus Elemental. my first modern deck ran him as a 4x in a similar kind of list as here but with a ton of the pact spells (they were cheap then) and Ground Rift (you can exile off the copies). many turn 2 kills :D
