I really like this deck. I have a friend who runs something similar and have been contemplating how to run it since I pulled a Nivmagus Elemental the other day. +1 for brilliant ideas.
RAWWWB The initial casting of Hidden Strings would resolve and then become ciphered onto Nivmagus Elemental . When you attack you can eat the cipher copy of it that turn or use it, whichever is most convenient.
with all the copying going around, you could probably use a Nivmagus Elemental
Yes! Yes, I will. And I'm going with Psychotic Fury for my draw card over Ponder or Brainstorm . Eventually I'm going to replace the Blistercoil Weird with Nivmagus Elemental . The Wee Dragonauts will become a 4th Guttersnipe .
I really like the concept of this deck, however I do believe there is one major oversight. Nivmagus Elemental
ability says "(that spell won't resolve)". So in a nutshell that means you cannot use the Hidden Strings
to untap your land before you exile it to Nivmagus Elemental
because the spell never resolves.
Please correct me if I am wrong.
Since you're running green, I'd look into having Alpha Authority in the sideboard for control decks or black decks. It's the worst feeling in the world to have your 9/10 Nivmagus Elemental die. Or put it on any creature just to have it safe. I'd throw it in the sideboard, and depending on the type of control you face replace the Aqueous Form (since control decks usually don't have early game creatures), or if you faces destruction deck (tons of Doom Blade and Hero's Downfall but with creatures) lose two aqueous forms and 1 warriors lesson and one of any other instant (or a flesh). Just a thought, id test it out before you do it for sure.
if you put in Triton Fortune Hunter you can cast spells targeting him with spells draw cards then exile the spells with Nivmagus Elemental and there are a bunch of other fun ways to draw card with him in this deck design
Thank you for your comments cschiller.
I considered Trait Doctoring
, except it is completely useless in this deck when I don't have Nivmagus Elemental
on the field, and I would rather draw anything else.
I could try Ghor-Clan Rampager . Although it not being an instant or sorcery may hurt me a little, it is still a strong card.
