Target creature you control gets +1/+0 until end of turn and is unblockable this turn.
Overload 3UR (You may cast this spell for its overload cost. If you do, change its text by replacing all instances of "target" with "each.")
Thanks for the suggestions. I've heavily considered them all, especially Goblin Electromancer to help with the overload spells, but none quite fit what I'm going for. Nivix Cyclops deserves a build devoted to it I think, but there's definitely some potential there. Teleportal seems made for the cyclops in particular, and I rarely see more than 2 or 3 on tokens on board before the pyro dies anyway.
As much as I love Nivix Cyclops , he doesn't fit in this type of deck, which is counter-burn. If I were to use him, I would use cards like Armed , Teleportal , and Titan's Strength . Thanks for the suggestion though!
Hmm well you are going half and half. You have some control and some aggro stuff. If you want to be more into control, I'd drop the Nivix Cyclops and the Fluxcharger . The sometimes swing in for damage but mostly just sit there blocking since you want to cast instants on your opponents turn. You might want to consider taking them out and putting in Guttersnipe and Spellheart Chimera . They synergize really well with control. That would also mean Teleportal isn't as useful but Izzet Charm would be a good switch since it is so versatile. It does everything you could want. I don't want to change what you have down too much but I think it is important for you to start moving towards either aggro or control. Hope that helps!!
Thanks for your comment. It's a very good option especially against those with a lot of huge creatures.
I use to cast Volcanic Geyser as finisher, but i'm going to try a different strategy: With a cost of five (overloading it) is easy to cast Teleportal in the turn six or seven, so maybe, if I have a Dragon and a pair of Nivix Cyclops in the battlefield I think it's a good way to finish.
I'm going to put two Teleportal in the sideboard and try it this friday.
why would you play Hidden Strings ? I assume you would play it on a Nivix Cyclops allowing him to attack through tapped blockers. However, the cipher ability trigger only after you've done damage meaning that you can't cast the cipher in order to attack with the cyclops, nor will you get any benefit from the +3/0 buff as it applies after damage is done. something like Armed / Dangerous would be cool combined with Teleportal for something like 16 unblockable damage on turn 4.
also running 3x Epic Experiment is gonna hurt your deck a lot. Not only are you too aggro to really benefit from the high casting cost, but the only real target for epic experiment are the 12 burn spells and the 3 Teleportal s. I say this because you will rarley be casting a Epic Experiment in response to your opponent's stack (to fish for one of your Dissolve s. I understand that casting epic experiment with a Nivix Cyclops on board would be very satisfying, but your chances of hitting the right combo of unblockable/burn spells to clear the board is pretty risky.
