Spirits on Mizzix, the Storm EDH

2 weeks ago

Awesome, thanks! Manbeast75

Whispers of the Muse is a great suggestion for Visions of Beyond, I've never really had a consistent connected Visions of Beyond. I may keep Plea for Power in temporarily, and remove Visions of Beyond for the Firemind's Foresight, see how my draw works. Plea for Power with Mizzix of the Izmagus is usually for a turn or 3 cards, pretty respectable conversions. Keeping Whispers of the Muse on the backburner, also allows me to draw my entire library in an Infinite scenario, very interesting. I think I need Whispers of the Muse because of the Isochron Scepter to have enough targets.

Mind's Desire has been reasonably good to me thus far, not sure it's necessary, I may have won without it, but it allowed me to play a Guttersnipe or a Sphinx-Bone Wand. It's definitely low on my priority scale, I just put it in over Ignite Memories to test it out.

I see how Sakashima the Impostor would be good, especially for a Blue Sun's Zenith or Stroke of Genius, not sure I can get the room, plus I find that Mizzix of the Izmagus is usually free casting Kicked Rite of Replication anyway, but I'll keep it in mind.

Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir is amazing, I have to get one of him when I'm at the store next.

Intuition is an interesting one, I have it in my maybeboard, Mystical Tutor, Merchant Scroll, Past in Flames or Mystic Retrieval means I get to play them all, regardless of which card an opponent puts in my hand. Mystical Tutor or Merchant Scroll can pull my Firemind's Foresight or Turnabout, or I can pull Personal Tutor for a Mizzix's Mastery.

I've been looking through your deck and clicking the guys, still going through it all.

cdyrdr on Oloro's Insufferable Pillow Fort

@BrotherofTarmogoyf Point taken. I considered adding in Grim Tutor and Imperial Seal before. I think I'll add in Personal Tutor and Grim Tutor in place of Phenax, God of Deception and Thoughtrender Lamia. Idk why Phenax was there in the first place considering he doesn't really fit in with the theme of this deck. I think I just added in all the Esper gods for kicks. Thoughtrender Lamia is ok, but it's a bit of a mid game card and once Enduring Ideal is cast there are probably a lot more valuable enchantments to get. Thanks for all the input!

As I've been playing this, the biggest problem I have found is finding Enduring Ideal reliably. I would suggest adding in at least Personal Tutor and maybe Grim Tutor or Beseech the Queen.

coreman on Tasigur the Golden Fang of Seasons Past

Sexy_Stud: If I were thinking of including Personal Tutor I'd be looking at Mystical Tutor first. Mystical does more and is at instant speed. The less things we do on our turn the better, it leaves us open to be more flexible and reactive.

When activating Tasigur before it gets to your turn, you will get what ever is the least bad choice for our opponents, it is value for us but the least value that we can get. When activating Tasigur in response to something, when no one else has an answer, we ask someone who doesn't like what is happening and they usually give us the answer for it.

You still have to pick your battles. When you have picked your battle, you have to determine if your resources in hand or a Tasigur activation will give you the best results. When you are fighting to push off a win, having Tasigur and another losing player at the table makes Tasigur's activation almost always get you exactly what you need, then it is just a question of having the available mana.

I think this deck is probably doing ok . If it were mine, I would add a bit more rocks to make it faster, maybe Paradox Engine to get a chain of wheels, Blood Moon and Blood Covenant for added board control, and Personal Tutor.

Are you using Dream Halls for the sole purpose of cheating Omniscience and Enter the Infinite into the game? I'm not sure how well that will work since you're also exposing yourself to a considerable amount of risk considering you'll be allowing 3 guys to cheat cards into the game as well.

Overall, I like the deck. Nekusar decks are really a pain to play against.

Mystical Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, and/or Personal Tutor seem like no-brainer includes for a deck like this.
