Hey, I just had a thought. Would Shattering Spree be a better sideboard option than Vandalblast because of Nivmagus Elemental? You will probably use it to destroy roughly the same number of artifacts, be it 2-3 or if you have the mana 4-5. When ever do you have to destroy more artifacts than you have red mana? I feel the replicate value where the spell literally becomes (tap all your red mana: destroy an artifact or two and put 6 +1+1 counters on a creature you control) adds versatility. Thoughts?

I have a deck very similar to your Izzet Riverfall Mimic deck that you are looking for help with. Check out my version Dominus Moon for some ideas. Nivmagus Elemental and replicate spells are worth considering as well as capitalizing on hybrid Mana and running Blood Moon to prey on greedy 3+ color decks.

Maybe we should make a Wizard Izzet Tribal deck with cards like Adeliz, the Cinder Wind, Stormchaser Mage and Nivmagus Elemental

I am in full support of this project... Nivmagus Elemental is my recommendation/contribution.... as well as spells with Replicate from the Ravinca Block such as Gigadrowse/Shattering Spree

Izzet Soundtrack with Nivmagus Elemental in particular in mind.... especially his flavor text "When it escaped, the experimenters hesitated. It would cause untold havoc, yet they wished to see it in action."..... the Combination of Knowledge/Control with Chaos/Freedom.

Hi AlphaLiberator98

The best way to speed the process up is one drop spells like Opt, Thought Scour, Vapor Snag, Piracy Charm, Gigadrowse and everyone's favourite Serum Visions. You want to take advantage of having spells in your graveyard, so playing cheap one drops helps.

You also need to think about how your deck functions without your enablers (Baral/Homunculus) in the same way the decks which run Baral and Goblin Electromancer do, the most expensive spells they cast are normally four mana and have storm... I think you need an alternative wincon, maybe Thing in the Ice  Flip or Curator of Mysteries as more traditional finishers, possibly Nivmagus Elemental since the cast trigger would still take effect...

Well, that is a terminology problem.
"Midrange" originally meant decks that outvalued other decks with x for 1 silver bullet cards, think Jund Charm.
Since jund was the de facto best version, the terms "jund" and "midrange" became synonymous.

Since then (classic, aka. non-death's shadow) jund changed a lot.
It became more of an aggressive permission deck than anything else, disrupting hand with discard (bad strategy in a long game), keeping the board clear. While getting value from Dark Confidant (again bad in a long game).

As the term "midrange" is used now it doesn't mean anything, but jund-like.

I would describe your deck as a devotion - Blood Moon prison hybrid.

P.s.:Did you consider running some cheap(er) spells with replicate to pump Nivmagus Elemental - like Gigadrowse, or does that dilute the number of dual colored spells too much?
