Steam Augury Discussion

Disciple of Bolas has a pretty strong ETB effect that you may want to copy, and Champion of Wits is really nice with the Sage of Fables and Docent of Perfection. Steam Augury is a nice supplement to Fact or Fiction :)

My advice would be to cut down the creatures that you're only planning on casting with Jhoira out and that can't win the game on their own. Examples of this are Tidespout Tyrant or Breaker of Armies. They're strong cards but if you need to suspend them with something else they become much too clunky. I also want to echo jon_hill987's board wipe suggestions, although Curse of the Swine could still be strong removal on a budget. You could also look into ways to protect the board while you get yourself going, because this isn't the fastest deck. Options here include Wash Out and Whelming Wave. If you're already running Steam Augury, it's probably worth considering Fact or Fiction. Finally, it doesn't look like you're running enough non-creatures to justify Arcane Melee. It might just make your match-up with more specialized control decks even worse.

Echoing Truth, Desperate Ravings, Reins of Power, Steam Augury, Word of Seizing, Aethersnatch, Magmaquake, Act of Aggression, DominateFor artifacts its a toss up, but I got rid of Seal of the Guildpact.

Get rid of all three enchantments.

For lands, limit it down to 36. Get rid of Rogue's Passage, and Temple of the False God.

Replacements*

I'll just put this is as a block text. Dig Through Time, Pieces of the Puzzle, Void Shatter, Swiftfoot Boots (or Lightning Greaves, if you prefer, thought you can go with both), Whispers of the Muse, Mystical Tutor, Part the Waterveil, Scour from Existence, Commit / Memory, Desolate Lighthouse, Cyclonic Rift, Tezzeret's Gambit, Mirrorpool, Disallow, Insidious Will, Shivan Reef, Spirebluff Canal, Metallurgic Summonings, Temple of Epiphany, Reiterate, Past in Flames, Learn from the Past, Meekstone, Epiphany at the Drownyard, Ponder, Merchant Scroll, Blasphemous Act, Mnemonic Nexus, Treasure Cruise, Guttersnipe, The Locust God, Wheel of Fate, Reforge the Soul, Sky Diamond, Expropriate, Insurrection, Caldera Lake, Halimar Depths

If you want some other upgrades to make this deck truly yours, you can go to EDHRec (https://edhrec.com/commanders/mizzix-of-the-izmagnus) to see what else you want to do. My deck is by no means the end all be all of upgrades. Keep it fun and make it work for you. :)

Steam Augury and Firemind's Foresight would probably be good in riku

PocketGio, Exquisite Firecraft is a solid card, but again it's too expensive personally and i don't like the three mana cost to cast.

Izzet Charm is a great card, and i will probably switch out Nagging Thoughts for it.

As for Steam Augury i feel that Taigam's Scheming is superior as it does the same thing except i have full control even if it is a sorcery.

I like your point as per the Sorcery vs Instant, good advice.

replace Inside Out with Exquisite Firecraft, you also might want to consider Izzet Charm , Mizzium Skin , and Steam Augury. Steam Augury is great for draw and also putting spells into the graveyard to pump up Enigma Drake and Spellheart Chimera. Mizzium Skin is a great way to protect your creatures from removal and also can be used just for the health to trade. Izzet Charm is just great because of its flexability.

Thanks for suggestions ramstutz,

I am currently busy so I won't write out all the cards, but I've read through your comment and thought about them, but only card I would maybe include is Vapor Snag, it is also in my maybeboard already so I am planning to test it.

Pretty much all the cards that you typed out, I have responded in comments bellow and in archive so if you wanna read my opinion on them you can scroll down in archive.

And I'm planning to replace Steam Augury with Epic Experiment.
