FredeLehmann on dead in an instant

I am not sure Nivmagus Elemental would work in this deck. I would have to exile all the instants and sorceries I want to use to activate the other creatures' abilities to activate Nivmagus Elemental 's ability. But thanks a lot for the advice!

mcnagnog: Nivmagus Elemental is absolutely a certified baller in the right kinda deck, but the problem with him in this deck is that he takes away a lot of the potential graveyard instants and sorceries that could buff Spellheart Chimera by exiling them. Young Pyromancer is also cool, but all my friends play stuff like Anger of the Gods and I am so sick of loosing to that card XD. I know the unblock-able and buff elemental plan you are talking about though, it just fits a more aggressive izzet type deck that I don't have the means to build right now. But thank you very much for the recommendations!

Nivmagus Elemental and Young Pyromancer completely dominated my friends when i made a similar deck a while ago... also Teleportal is a good way to buff your dudes and also make them unblockable for an easier win and Titan's Strength is a good way to get a whole lot of damage at someone

this is a fun build... i have a similar type of deck, might give you some ideas: Blitz Pact. long story short, Rebound cards are awesome! use their effect as stated on first cast, then on the exiled cast, exile it to Nivmagus Elemental , or get free buffs for Kiln Fiend . have you tried Blistercoil Weird ? I've gotten those guys up to 10/10 before. very fun :D

Ultimately, my game plan is to "go off" on Turn 4 after dropping a Cyclops on Turn 3. I included Nivmagus Elemental as a backup plan of sorts in case a spell is countered or the intended target (usually Cyclops) is killed.

For that plan, Cipher is a bit too slow.

I would put in some cypher cards, like Hidden Strings since they have great synergy with Nivmagus Elemental and Armed / Dangerous .
Nivmagus can exile the cypher copies made so he can be stronger after each swing.
with Armed / Dangerous , you can buff any of your creatures between each swing, because it will do first strike, cypher, normal strike, cypher.

Here's my take on the deck, I've been using it since theros started, and constantly editing it.

Fray's Izzet fun time. Playtest

Awesome deck! I love it and am considering building it. With all the deck stacking you have available why not included a singleton Keranos, God of Storms ? He snowballs very well.

have you considered Temple of Epiphany and you just don't like it? Nivmagus Elemental is your only one drop permanent so it may be worth add in them. At least 2 if not 4 Price
