Ophidian Eye Discussion

DrukenReaps on Niv-Mizzet Drawgons

So you already have curiosity so I would assume you are ok with comboing off and would highly recommend adding Ophidian Eye. One I literally just learned about from


is Tandem Lookout which also works for the combo. That should be plenty of redundancy for that combo.

One thing I've done to hold off my friend's nivy-wizzy is play Orbs of Warding which also hurts The Locust God. You may never see anything like it but I'd recommend having a little more artifact removal.

Some other great inclusions: Psychosis Crawler, Arjun, the Shifting Flame, Fateful Showdown, Laboratory Maniac, Dragon Mage, and Enter the Infinite.

This is fairly different from my spell based version, but I still think Curiosity and Ophidian Eye are auto includes for the "Infinite combo".

Toss in Ophidian Eye and you got yourself a combo.

Ophidian Eye is another curiosity but I don't know that I would include both since niv-mizzet is not the commander, don't want too much focus on him.

Enter the Infinite can win you the game on the spot and is really fun with Omniscience. This can be a little fragile but most the time you should be fine.

Command Tower because Command Tower.

Some interesting utility lands Desolate Lighthouse, Geier Reach Sanitarium, Arch of Orazca, Cephalid Coliseum.

Coat of Arms and Throne of the God-Pharaoh are great with the locust tokens.

Commander's Sphere is another, albeit smaller, form of ramp/draw, and if you're in a The Locust God deck, then maybe include the other popular draw commanders, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and Niv-Mizzet, Dracogenius. With those, you'd be netting 1 damage, 1 card, and 1 token if you have The Locust God out! There are also quite a few combos with them, such as Curiosity, Tandem Lookout, Ophidian Eye and Mind Over Matter. Though it should be noted that these combos only work infinitely with Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind as far as I can tell!

DrukenReaps on Hogwarts deck of wizardry

I would suggest Conjurer's Closet, ETBs are going to give terrific value and you have really good ones already. This will make it very easy to put them on repeat. If you eminence off the closet then the wizard you get doesn't go away until your opponents end step which is kinda fun.

Timestream Navigator and Wanderwine Prophets can be used to get extra turns. The prophet can go infinite with inalla while the navigator will get you 2. Although if you Conjurer's Closet the navigator 5 mana at the end of every turn gets you an extra turn...

This leads me to mention Deadeye Navigator another broken card you could add to make those ETBs go to work for you.

Something fairly important if you want to combo off regularly is tutors but the good ones will cost a pretty penny. It may be better to just go for valuable ETBs with a chance of comboing off. Archmage Ascension is a cheap one though that I feel is really underplayed in commander. It does take a bit to get going but totally worth it in most blue decks.

Since firemind is in the deck Curiosity and Ophidian Eye go infinite with him.

Flameshadow Conjuring is another inalla though requires . Shifting Shadow can get you through to other creatures turn after turn.

hey man! you probably won't see this comment as you haven't done anything to this deck in a long time, but wanted to recommend Drift of Phantasms. It is an INCREDIBLE blocker for PDH as the ground tends to get gummed up and many try to win with a few flyers. Additionally, this has the incredible ability to tutor for any CMC of 3 in your deck. finding an additional counterspell or your second curiosity effect with Ophidian Eye is crucial to control the boardstate through card advantage.

Transmute is one of my favorite mechanics in PDH so I thought I would let you know about that gem :)

with that in mind, Muddle the Mixture is another option helping you tutor through your deck.

anyways, take care man.
