Nivmagus Elemental Discussion

Yesterday on If a spell is countered ...

2 weeks ago

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

Nivmagus Elemental plus cipher cards is one of my favorite combos. Also, I don't see it mentioned anywhere but I hope people are aware that enchanting Thermo-Alchemist with Curiosity triggers the card draw. Which is a nasty combo :) Great deck!

I think you could seriously consider cutting 1x temur battle rage, 2x tainted strike for 3x gutshots in the main. other creatures that would work really well with this deck are Nivmagus Elemental and Blistercoil Weird . Another general approach is to cut out the death's shadow and a couple terminates for storm cards: manamorphose, pyretic ritual/desperate ritual and some low cost haste like Crimson Wisps or Expedite.

So to start off I am not super experienced with a Kiln Fiend style deck but I shall try to be helpful and I guess I will make a list of points to make it more clear.

-Blustersquall is a good card but I am not sure that it is good enough to be in a constructed deck. Also, this deck needs a cantrip which would net you card advantage as well as pumping whichever creature you have on the battlefield. So drop 4 Blustersquall for 4 Serum Visions.

-Lightning Bolt should be a 4 of and to do so I would drop the 2x Assault Strobe. Assault Strobe is good, but considering you already have 4 Temur Battle Rage, 6 double strike spells is too many.

-Between your 2 counter spells, Stubborn Denial > Mana Leak so I would drop Mana Leak for 2 more Stubborn Denial.

-If you want to play a pump spell, Mutagenic Growth > Titan's Strength. Yes Titan's Strength adds one more power but you must spend a mana to do so whereas with Mutagenic Growth it only costs 2 life, which saves mana for other spells.

-I believe that 16 creatures is too much and that 3-4 mana creatures are too expensive. So maybe drop Fluxcharger and Nivix Cyclops then add Blistercoil Weird, Nivmagus Elemental, or Thing in the Ice  Flip but my suggestion is Thing in the Ice  Flip. For the remaining 4 cards, I would add 2 Apostle's Blessing and 2 Sleight of Hand.

To summarize:


4 Blustersquall

2 Mana Leak

4 Titan's Strength

2 Assault Strobe

4 Fluxcharger

4 Nivix Cyclops


4 Serum Visions

2 Stubborn Denial

4 Mutagenic Growth

2 Lightning Bolt

4 Thing in the Ice  Flip

2 Apostle's Blessing

2 Sleight of Hand

Sideboard Suggestions:

Blood Moon For when you are playing against decks where the majority of their mana bases are non basic lands.

Dismember For large creatures that you cannot remove with Lightning Bolt

Pyroclasm For small creature decks.

Shattering Spree For artifact decks.

Surgical Extraction For removing threats that you have a tough time removing.

Young Pyromancer For swinging wide with a lot of tokens.

fantomsokken If you want to surprise people, Nivmagus Elemental might be an interesting choice.

Even though I do like the 20/20/20 deck spread, and I didn't see it was a "Budget" deck.... So,.....

do you need 4x Mercurial Geists and 4x Mistfire Adept's? Geist at 2x maybe and a 3X of Mistfire's? add in 3x more Instant/Sorceries. maybe some Pillar of Flame or something that Exiles if it kills it, Magma Spray???... for , That could lightning bolt + Pillar and Exile a 5/5 Creature...???

The Monastery was my first thought for this deck too. "Like A Glove" (wink wink)

you like the Blistercoil Weird over the Nivmagus Elemental??? for stuff like "Prowess" and "Whenever CAST".... even if the spell is Exiled, it would still count for being CASTED and Trigger them........ Guttersnipe???. I like the more permanent 2X +1/+1 Counters.

Would Satyr Firedancer work in here?

and as was kinda "Harshly" mentioned in a previous post..... you might need a Mana/Land fix... R/U Temple with the Scry (I forget the name right now, brain fart!), I like it? Sulfur Falls maybe??
