Nivmagus Elemental Discussion

I think the deck you are looking for is Elemental Combo or Nivmagus Shotgun (you can find a primer on MTGS). Nivmagus Elemental, Monastery Swiftspear, Kiln Fiend, and Death's Shadow are probably the best creatures. Ground Rift is pretty awesome with Nivmagus Elemental.

Ruglefrugal thanks a bunch! this is my first time making a non-creature heavy deck so I have a rough time deciding control spells and other spells to protect my few creatures. It took me a moment to understand what you meant with the Nivmagus Elemental, that's pretty awesome to do with cipher.

It looks really cool but I don't really see a win condition in here. The unblockable dudes are great, but get outclassed real quick by stronger creatures and removal. You may want to run some Nivmagus Elemental (3 or 4) as a win con. You can exile the copy of a spell cast off cipher and it will continue to be able to be ciphered. Also, if you want to have some control, I'd run a couple Cyclonic Rift mainboard. Switch them for the Aetherize. For a sideboard, think about what you'll be facing. For creature based decks, you may want more removal like Dismember, Slaughter Pact, Pongify or something else. Or you would want to side in more control like Essence Scatter, Condescend, Spell Pierce or something like that. Those would be my main sideboard plans for this deck. Good luck!

This deck has a solid idea. I feel like it could be improved on though;
Also it seems like this deck always needs both blue and red. If you have the money, consider a playset of Cascade Bluffs to ensure you always have the right color.
And more on mana efficiency, consider more dual-mana symbols, since you can play them with either color mana, but it still fuels your blue devotion. Nivmagus Elemental is great even if you don't use his ability. A 1/2 on T1 that gets all the elemental buffs and fuels devotion. Also I think you need Crackleburr. Dual mana symbols, plus it's a removal toolbox as long as you have creatures and that untap symbol makes me smile :)
Also maybe Izzet Charm? It's a quick counter, or creature burn, or 2-loot so you can grab the cards you want.

Guile: "you may play that card without paying its mana cost"
Not mandatory :)
The combo requires that you target Ink-Treader Nephilim with the countered spells to create more spell casts anyways, so even if Guile's text did not include "may", there would be no mandatory infinite spell loop. Moreover, there is Eye of the Storm, Vexing Shusher, and Nivmagus Elemental to stop anything from getting out of control.

If you add in the Kiln Fiend I would definitly consider Nivmagus Elemental because you can exile the spell in response to the cast (still triggers prowess and kiln) and have 3 creatures that simply will be getting bigger and more threating
