Notable synergy: Nekusar, the Mindrazer plus one or more of Curiosity, Tandem Lookout, or Ophidian Eye. It turns Nekusar into a bastard version of Consecrated Sphinx: "I draw a card." "I deal you 1 damage with Nekusar, the Mindrazer. Curiosity triggers, drawing me a card as well." It makes him into a Consecrated Sphinx, except it draws a card and deals 1 damage instead of drawing two cards. Funny combo.

Hey, nice budget version of Niv, less than $100 is impressive.

I see Curiosity and Tandem Lookout this means you know of and are trying to combo with Niv. This combo can be problematic when you have multiple opponents because Niv only does 1 damage to a single target each draw. The problem is this isn't an actual combo that can win you the game unless you have a way to shuffle your entire hand of all cards you drew back into your library which will let you keep drawing and doing damage with Niv. If you don't have this effect then as a result you could deck yourself (drawing all the cards in your library) while not killing your opponents.

Whirlpool Warrior is a budget card that does this effect. It lets you shuffle your hand back into your library to continue the combo with Niv and you can do this potentially twice. After you shuffle all the cards from hand back into your library you then draw that many cards which triggers Niv again and will most likely kill your opponents.

With Curiosity you can interrupt the combo to cast Whirlpool to shuffle or sac Whirlpool to do it. Tandem Lookout's effect is not a may therefore Whirlpool needs to be on the battlefield before you combo with Niv. Then at instant speed you can sac Whirlpool to continue the combo with Lookout.

Hey, it's been a while. To link to your deck wrap your deck's slug with brackets. The slug can be found at last part of the Internet address to your deck (/niv-mizzet-my-problem/). Your deck name is unique therefore the slug is the name of your deck thus you only have to use the name with brackets to link to it. Niv mizzet my problem

[[niv-mizzet-my-problem]]

To link to a card you also use brackets around the cards name. Aetherflux Reservoir

Understand, that cEDH is whole other monster of a format then Commander. I don't play cEDH, because it's not a budget format, but I do try to follow it. I think before you think about cEDH you should make your deck ready for casual competitive. This is how I play Commander, by building casual competitive decks. Causal competitive to me means a competitive deck that's not as powerful as cEDH deck, but is using some cEDH deck building philosophies without the massive cost. Uses a combo to win and keep the avg. CMC as low as possible.

The most competitive thing about Niv is the infinite damage combo with Curiosity, Ophidian Eye and Tandem Lookout. Glint-Horn Buccaneer combo is also good. If wanting to be more competitive then the rest of your deck should be cards that can help you to find the other card you need for the combo, protect the combo, play ramp that will help you to cast the combo faster and interact with your opponents until you can assemble the combo. Your world in a competitive game with Niv should be about how you can assemble the combo the quickest with protection because this is how you win the game.

One way to be more competitive is to cut all the unnecessary high CMC cards. In the case of Niv he's really the only high CMC creature threat you need. You want to keep the mana curve low to be able to play more spells each turn and not have too many cards in your hand that you can't cast. Being competitive is about getting as much value for the mana cost as you can from the cards you play.

Some examples of non-competitive lands in your deck:

Best to not play any lands that will always ETB tapped because these lands slow you down and make it more difficult to leave mana up to cast instants on your opponents turns. It's better to play more basic lands then these lands if you have to. To be more competitive you need to be able to spend for good lands. A competitive manabase is not cheap; in fact it will most likely be the most expensive part of your deck, but this is needed. The first thing I do when building a casual competitive deck is allocate enough of the budget for good dual lands as these are essential to the deck functioning.

An example of lands that could replace these lands to be more competitive.

Don't be afraid to pay life to make mana in 40 life Commander.

I can continue in another comment. Would you like more advice?

Bokamoso: Thanks a lot! Spell_Slam is right, Tandem Lookout is an excellent catch! I can't believe I missed that one myself. X)

Finally got around to updating the deck. Made some swaps based on good suggestions, plus a some cards I found as well. 11 cards swapped in all.

Thanks for the help, guys!

I like this.

Sage's Row Savant, Tah-Crop Skirmisher, Umara Entangler and Cloudkin Seer are all 2/1 creatures that also have something else going on.

My favorite pairing with Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive is Tandem Lookout.
