You can use Battlefield Thaumaturge 's ability to Gridlock the enemy's guys after you declare attackers (Keeping your heroic triggers while still swinging), but before blockers (Eliminating response) for an unexpected wincon. That way you can swing for lethal without having to worry about your Nivmagus Elemental getting blocked, and still get those sweet, sweet heroic triggers.

The whole reason Nivmagus Elemental is good is the Cipher affect. Throw out Hidden Strings or Hands of Binding then let Nivmagus eat the copies till hes huge.

...the warm fuzzy feeling of helping someone :)

raptor's mono blue control So this is my latest attempt using Nivmagus Elemental early game if I draw him and then countering threats as they come drop Jace, the Living Guildpact to get the draw and ive found the ulty not only possible but quite useful. Finally AEtherling to finish the job.

Still need to work out some kinks, especially Mistcutter Hydra and Skylasher defense (hence the number of artifacts in side board)

HI Everyone

I'm playing a slightly different version of this deck. Just as food for thought I want to drop two card names here. Pyromancer Ascension (little pricey I know) and Nivmagus Elemental . I play 2 copies each.

In our kitchen table multiplayer metagame I can kill 3-4 opponents on turn 3 or 4. I use A little more mana: 14 Lands including fetchlands.

And this is how i play it: I look for either one Weird-Combo piece (1) or Pyromancer Ascension (2) and the appropriate mana to cast them in my starting hand.

(2)Ascension normally just leads to faster digging and finding the combo to go off.

(1)If I have the Weird-Combo in hand or half assembled, I simply start digging or going off.

(both cases when the combo is running):

With the mana floating from Whisps and Probe i cast Nivmagus Elemental to eat the unnecessary copies of the spells from ascension (so I don't deck myself) or cast ascension if not yet cast. After 20-30 Spells i have enough mana floating to cast 2 Grapeshots and attack with a 20/20 Blistercoil Weird and an equally strong Nivmagus Elemental .

Tested on about 20 multiplayer (4 people) games and won 12 of them by killing all the others in turn 3-6.

I have not yet posted my list, but I think I soon will.

This is a variant of a deck I am using (waiting on Hallowed Fountain and Nivmagus Elemental )

Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I would feel better with this trade. It only put's us apart by less than $0.50, and there are less cards to pack together.

For your:
2x Nivmagus Elemental - $1.00
Breeding Pool - $9.50

SkRiGeR on izzet burn/tokens

Young Pyromancer is falling short here. You only have 8 instant/sorcery spells which is odd for an izzet deck. I like the idea of Molten Birth I would take out the Judge's Familiar it also has not need in the deck. If you want a one drop instead of another spell, run Akroan Crusader it feeds much better into this deck idea. Nivmagus Elemental Also doesn't fit well. You have some great cards if you want to go traditional izzet pump and then you have great cards for token burn. Both of these dont mix because you need to dedicate the deck around one or the other. When I have a bit more time, I will take a closer look at your choices and give you a bit more better of a recommendation.

scrotality the problem with Nivmagus Elemental is i lose my spells to make him bigger. Yes i have snapcaster but niv doesnt even let them go to the graveyard but exiles them and he doesnt have trample to help make those counters go to work. If he had evasion of some sort i could see him being very effective in this deck to go woth delver. I think that is why no one every really uses him in modern in my opinion.

Though i am very pleased to see you are liking the deck!! :) i hope i can eventually get those cards im still needing so then this bad boy is truly modern ready

cian114 its no problem i thought you would be able to point out decks this might have problems agaisnt so i can fix up the sideboard some more. Also sometimes making what you hate leads to your strongest decks because you know how to stop it so make it able to awnser it lol Price
