Show and Tell Discussion
1 week ago
Hey, nice deck! Let me make a few suggestions: Since you run Show and Tell, wouldn't it be nice to add cards such as It That Betrays, Omniscience, Blightsteel Colossus and other really big stuff in blue/red/colorless?
Now, why is it that you want to ramp so much whilst using Jhoira of the Ghitu in the command zone? She actually needs ramping only on turns 1 and 2, so she can go off ASAP by using her ability. After that, you will be drawing dead artifacts that won't help you win the game. Also, Jeskai Banner, Temur Banner and Obelisk of Grixis are illegal in your deck, since they contain white, green and black in their color identities, respectively.
And to abuse Jhoira's ability, consider adding expensive Global Removal, such as Obliterate, Decree of Annihilation and Jokulhaups. The thing is, for example, you set both Obliterate and Blightsteel Colossus with 4 time counters on them, try to make them resolve faster, using temporal tools, and if they would go to the stack at the same time, order the spells to resolve the Global Removal before the Beefy creature, them everybody has no lands, artifacts nor creatures, whilst you are left with a Zigagilion/Zigagilion creature.
Oh, a cheap combo possible in your deck is by adding Curiosity in order to use it with Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, you'd draw as much as you want from your deck, and deal the same amount in damage to your opponents.
That's usually the plan of the deck. Other People consider a way more controlling approach, and use Jhoira's Ability to actually help you control the board whilst advancing your own, until you're able to combo of in some Izzet Way. I like both, if you want to hear more about it, just say so.

you could take out stuff like Conflux or Swiftfoot Boots. Wildfire Eternal also casts stuff for free. Elvish Piper, Champion of Rhonas , Quicksilver Amulet, Show and Tell, and Sneak Attack are also good backup options in case the commander tax starts to get too high.

Show and Tell is in the description because it is a similar design archetype, and the tag attracts players who would be interested in this style deck

btw why does this have the "show and tell" hub when theres no Show and Tell?

In doing so thought I'd mention a few things, see if anything is helpful, probably not,
Fabricate can pull the Isochron Scepter for your Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal (or the Mana Crypt/Sol Ring that is needed to enable the combo?). I know you have Muddle the Mixture to tutor these, but you could Muddle the Mixture the Dramatic Reversal and Fabricate the Isochron Scepter as an additional tool. Worst case you Fabricate a Mana Crypt for net mana.
Personal Tutor can pull a Fabricate to top of deck, or if you have Temporal Mastery it can pull that to the top to Miracle for (Personal Tutor) + Temporal Mastery miracle to get the extra turn. You don't actually miss a draw, because you still draw on the extra turn you wouldn't have had anyway (technically). Also I find even if Temporal Mastery is in my hand, Brainstorm can make it favorable, or just wheel it away (not super effective), but you may even cast it for CMC7 in odd cases. Think Twice can Miracle it on opponents turns too, that would be fun.
You could run Show and Tell + Omniscience + Enter the Infinite, I think Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind would trigger? (but not sure), but your already tutoring enchantments which is very difficult. I know it sucks (no card advantage), but Gamble is a way to tutor a Curiosity and go for the win early. I think Gamble is a necessary evil here due to the difficulty of tutoring enchantments. You could also run Laboratory Maniac to win, even when you Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Curiosity maybe you need it to overcome a Trostani, Selesnya's Voice that's gained 60 life or something, just as an alternative to the draw/damage, once your out of cards in your library, no more way to output damage. Beacon of Tomorrows can also save you here too.
Faithless Looting can help with the cycling of the cards too for . Trinket Mage could tutor a Mana Crypt or Sol Ring for or you could add Great Furnace / Seat of the Synod and tutor a land, since Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind is CMC6, ramping spells never hurt.
Lightning Greaves can Haste enable him so he doesn't have to survive, although you have the Counterspell if you don't have a Pact of Negation or a Force of Will handy can protect him, especially in a 4-player pod where you can't Gitaxian Probe everyone. With so few creatures, I get why it's out.
I use Turnabout + Nivix Guildmage to Infinite mana, they can also be used with Frantic Search + Izzet Boilerworks + Nivix Guildmage to Tutor Curiosity or Ophidian Eye or Mind Over Matter. I really over-utilize Nivix Guildmage so probably not right here, but thought I'd mention as it is a tutor to your combos.
Scalding Tarn and Cascade Bluffs would be good land upgrades, you have other fetches so probably didn't need to say this, but Ash Barrens also good because if you need a color it can landcycle and filter out a land, if you dont need it, it comes in untapped and doesn't slow progression down at all.
Anyways, like I mentioned, not a Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind player, but I know how Tutoring really flattens out the consistency on a combo deck, especially one where you have no direct tutors (Gamble) to get the Enchantments to your hand, so some Janky ones might be of interest.
PS: some evaluations,
Magmatic Insight feels wrong, I like the draw, but sacrificing a land with a CMC6 commander still feels wrong? Plus if you draw it later in the game, it could be a dead draw until you draw a land.
Thought Scour is a pod-specific card? I don,t see much graveyard recursion here, so I assume your pod is top-deck tutoring that you need a response too? Or maybe just looking for as many Cantips as possible? Maybe Whispers of the Muse if you have the infinite mana going, gives you the infinite draw too.
Flusterstorm feels like a dead draw sometimes, especially against . If it's in your opening draw, it probably great, outside of that it's going to be less effective (but not always).

moxen_1 looks like a fun deck. +1 from me.
Show and Tell, Hypergenesis, Defense of the Heart, and Oath of Druids could all work really well in here to cheat out your Leviathans. You should also throw in Brainstorm. Brainstorm in response to Oath to put a Leviathan right on top is pretty nasty.

Show and Tell might help. But I would cut the cards that don't do a whole lot to help focus on the cards that do something.
