Spirits on Niv-Mizzet Combo

4 days ago

Hi Thormundr,

I'm not a Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind player, I saw your deckcycle and was stealing your combo information, I'm a Mizzix of the Izmagnus player Mizzix, The Storm EDH player.

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.

Merchant Scroll can also Tutor the Dramatic Reversal.

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.

No Disallow? It's pretty effective Counterspell, albeit CMC3.

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.

Cheers +1

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).

Spirits on Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats EDH

1 week ago

Thanks for the comment TzickyT.

He's a 3/2 for CMC3, so he's decently in scale. He is not a cat, so can't use the Eminence with him. He does have built-in recursion. In my build, he only has 10 targets (that's pretty low), but Lost Leonin, Puresteel Paladin, Qasali Pridemage, Swiftfoot Boots, Sylvan Library, Umezawa's Jitte all pretty high value targets.

Because he's not a cat, and because he doesn't have enough targets (10), I wouldn't run him in this deck, plus I think he is built for being abused (which I like, but is not the goal of this build).

If you want to build around him, I think he would be great.

Renegade Rallier + Saffi Eriksdotter + Blasting Station (or Altar of Dementia any sac outlet basically) looks like Infinite Damage to me.

Can't think of anyone else off the top of my head he combos with, but:

Saffi Eriksdotter + Sun Titan or Karmic Guide or Reveillark all work.

Also enables Fiend Hunter + Sun Titan or Karmic Guide.

Another tool in the Saffi Eriksdotter combo wheelhouse. I'm testing Archangel of Thune + Spike Feeder | Infinite Life + Infinite +1/+1 Counters of which neither are Cats, so really bothers me. It plays on my Life gain Sub-Theme, but it's still not right.

I've worked out a couple combos with Cats, but nothing really concrete yet. Renegade Rallier is a bit too far away from my goal, but a pretty amazing guy, I like him. He feels more Trostani, Selesnya's Voice or Karametra, God of Harvests or 100% Saffi Eriksdotter to me. It's easily tutorable combo in . With a Greater Good can tutor for the Blasting Station or whatever damage outlet you need.

If you decide to run him, I would build some synergy around him with a recursive sub-theme.

Took out Flickerwisp (not doing enough as a one-of) and added a Whip of Erebos. Love its interaction with Conjurer's Closet

Substituted Verdant Sun's Avatar with Trostani, Selesnya's Voice. Cheaper to cast and can copy tokens from Thragtusk & Trostani's Summoner

Ta pas besoin de Daretti, Ingenious Iconoclast vus que tu as aura shards tu pourais jouez Pernicious Deed plus Sun Titan. Trostani, Selesnya's Voice est pommal moin bonne dans ce deck si vus que ton commander est aggro. Freyalise, Llanowar's Fury serait bonne aussi et mon fav Grave Titan

Ok so I think a Trostani, Selesnya's Voice would be great! I actually have a deck I made around her with my dads collection! So please keep in mind that this deck is ment to be messed around with or built around if you think it could use changes. Or if you like you can keep it where it is!

Thanks, those are some sweet ideas! :)

I think Wake the Reflections and Trostani, Selesnya's Voice are worth trying out, at least in the sideboard.

Entreat the Angels sounds sweet although I'd like some sort of draw manipulation to go along with it. Courser of Kruphix + fetchlands could be an option for a future version of the deck.

Growing Ranks and Devout Invocation are too slow imo. Modern's a fast format so I'd like my 4 drops to have some sort of impact on the board immediately. Thanks for suggesting nevertheless.

This deck is savage! +1 from me. The only thing I could think of as a possible inclusion might be Wall of Omens , or maybe Trostani, Selesnya's Voice. Omens for a decent cantrip that will help you filter through your deck. Then Trostani for life gain from your big butts. Another cheeky way you could use Tree of Perdition is to activate trees ability and then hit it with Snakeform while trees ability is still on the stack and reduce their life total to 1. Snake form is also a cantrip. Anyway just a couple of considerations for you. I hope they are helpful to you and kudos on a really cool deck.
