Tezzeret's Gambit


(symbol:UP can be paid with either or 2 life.)

Draw two cards, then proliferate. (You choose any number of permanents and/or players with counters on them, then give each another counter of a kind already there.)

Tezzeret's Gambit Discussion

Legoman18, out of curiosity, did you only put in a play set of Pipers? My original suggested changes were not only the Pipers but to give you "more room for counterspell control and less worrying about digging and scrying". If you are replacing spells like Dizzy Spell (which you no longer need to transmute for for Quest, if you are adding in the Pipers), Opt, or Tezzeret's Gambit (because you are no longer putting all of your eggs in one basket..) with counter spells, then you should see far less issues with keeping Piper out on the field for at least a single turn. Is he going to be a lightning rod? No doubt. But the idea is to keep him on the field for a single turn. That's all you really need. And the more control they waste on him or trying to bait your counterspells, the less control they have for your win cons when they hit the field.

Thanks for the comment and suggestions.

Tezzeret's Gambit is interesting but I don't know how strong the proliferate would be, and it'd have to compete with other options I consider like Pull from Tomorrow for card draw.

Twisted Image I considered for a while but couldn't find a card I would willingly go down to have it.

+1 from me. Tezzeret's Gambit and Twisted Image two cheaper cards that came to mind off the top of the head that might fit into your deck.

Looks fun, but could maybe use more The Scarab God . For the infect subtheme, Viral Drake, Contagion Engine, Inexorable Tide, Tezzeret's Gambit, and Thrummingbird. Also, here are some cool names for the deck: 'I'll Mime That', 'Like Geralf, but Worse', 'Grave Shenanigans and Infect: the Two Worst Things', and 'The Friendship Destroyer'.

Disrupt Decorum Fall of the Titans

Comet Storm

Play these and copy either one to knock out entire games at once.You should also look into these for acceleration:

Inexorable Tide

Tezzeret's Gambit

Steady Progress

Inexorable tide is ridiculous in a Mizzix deck, you get experience counters off of everything. Proliferate also works with Planeswalkers like Ral Zarek, who could give you near-unlimited turns.To make the deck a bit more protected, since you don't seem to want to run Propoganda, try Disrupt Decorum as a fallback. It's incredibly fun in a 4-5 player game when everyone starts trying to stop you. primal amulet is the new must-have from Ixalan. For 4 mana you get an electromancer effect, then the land is a copier. It's unbelievably powerful mid-game.

Good luck, my guildmate, and happy experimentation!

A few staples I would personally add to the deck: Spell Burst, Tezzeret's Gambit, Reiterate, and Capsize

Also, you could upgrade your x-burn spells with Comet Storm and Fall of the Titans and trade Inferno/Fire Tempest for something likeRolling Earthquake/Earthquake/Fault Line/Molten Disaster ect. (does that same thing but better/more flexible)

If you are looking for stuff to take out I would start with Sun Droplet (seems real slow and super bad at what it does) Bosium Strip (would rather just draw cards instead of taxing myself 3 mana, this deck probably won't be casting more than 1 spell of the strip per turn at best) Lightning Bolt/Lightning Strike/Volt Charge (not a lot of impact in EDH, 3 damage just isn't that much) Searing Flesh (for similar reasons just put in another x-burn spell) Spellbook (you don't seem to be drawing that many cards) Mind's Desire (storm count would be really low most of the time since copying doesn't count towards storm count)
