Drakorya on Mizzix Spell Bonanza

1 month ago

I like to use Searing Touch in my Mizzix deck. You can tutor for it with Firemind's Foresight along with Reiterate and Pyretic Ritual, and go infinite as long as you have four experience counters.

The buyback spells are alot of value, like Fanning the Flames, Shattering Pulse, and Spell Burst. They all need 4-5 experience counters to get going, but then you can start doing things with your excess mana every turn. The best one is probably Whispers of the Muse. With 5 experience counters you can pay a blue mana to draw a card as many times as you like at instant speed.

I also like Dominate to steal opponents creatures.

For paradox engine combos, you could just do engine + mana rocks + any spell with buyback. Reiterate or Searing Touch. (few more but those are the best.

Drakorya Thanks for the suggestions! The thing with Inexorable Tide is that at 5 mana, it doesn't impact the game so much, I prefer more ways to protect Mizzix of the Izmagus because I can cast her the turn after the tide comes out. The other two creatures in the other hand could be a intereting adiction, so in the case they don't kill them (less removal to Mizzix) they could do some damage/poison counters and keeping proliferating.

Whispers of the Muse and Searing Touch seems great in paper, but in the practice they don't do much without Mizzix (sadly this is a common situation, because she don't have any protection included) so relying in his counters would not be good. I see her as a Arcane Melee in a stick, an also I don't rely too much in her, so I can win that games where she cost 12 mana to cast.

In the other hand, the Beacon of Tomorrows + Enter the Infinite seems very powerful, I never thought about it! I will test the beacon for sure.

Thanks again for the suggestions! If you know more cards I will be very interested in them. Cheers!

Proliferate can be really powerful with experience counters. I've found you can get heaps with Inexorable Tide out, and Viral Drake and Thrummingbird can help too, though they're dealt with easily.

Buyback cards are great too. Whispers of the Muse with 5 experience counters lets you draw a card for each blue mana you have at instant speed for the rest of the game (unless it gets countered). Searing Touch similarly lets you do a damage for each red mana you have for the rest of your game, and if you have the experience counters I think it's better than Lightning Bolt.

Beacon of Tomorrows goes infinite with Enter the Infinite, and usually only goes for around $10.
