Spirits on Mizzix, the Storm EDH

4 hours ago

Hi xSHAMUSx, Contagion Engine is respectable, the -1/-1 is nice for defense. The proliferate 2 is nice. The main reason I don't play it is the CMC6 and the Activate 4. If I have 10 mana at my disposal, I should already have enough Experience and have pulled a combo. CMC10 is just too slow and too steep a cost for me.

Do you have a base deck build started yet? Didn't see it on your profile. Are you planning on running Mizzix of the Izmagnus as your commander or Arjun, the Shifting Flame?

Izzet has a tough time pulling creatures, ie: Arjun, the Shifting Flame.

Some recommendations might be:

Blue Sun's Zenith, Brain Freeze, Stroke of Genius, Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur, Jushi Apprentice, Enter the Infinite + Laboratory Maniac, Show and Tell + Omniscience, Arcanis the Omnipotent, Ambassador Laquatus, Grindclock, Millstone, Mind's Eye, Beacon of Tomorrows, Windfall, Wheel of Fortune, Reforge the Soul, Jace, Memory Adept, Memory Erosion, Dreamborn Muse, Jace's Archivist, Altar of Dementia + Glen Elendra Archmage + Sage of Fables, Altar of the Brood, Keening Stone, Mesmeric Orb, Mindcrank, Increasing Confusion, Tunnel Vision + Jace, the Mind Sculptor (Using his +2).

Would have to put together a preliminary build. Would need 1) Some way to survive since you'll pull threat from at least one player 2) Some way to go fast, cheap mana rocks etc to push into the big creatures.

Sorry if I duplicated any there, a couple good combos in there.

I should warn you though, in 4 player commander, it may be tough to mill all 3 opponents, you could do it, but may not be consistent. I think has better mill/control because of the .

When I played Nekusar I found that bounce effects were a mana efficient way of dealing with permanents. Cyclonic Rift overloaded into any Wheel of Fortune clone deals with any issues your opponents present.

Also for your viewing pleasure: Cerebral Vortex, Molten Psyche, Windfall, Forced Fruition, Hive Mind, Skyscribing the list goes on and on

NONBO'S

The first thing I see when looking at this deck is Sundial of the Infinite this card doesn't work with the end of turn trigger from unearth.

Third is Panharmonicon, this card is absolutely disgusting with it's ability to abuse the crap out of things like Sepulchral Primordial and other effects. Another really funny card to go along with the ETB abuse is Flayer of the Hatebound, nobody will notice until their life total is about 6.

MY PERSONAL ADDITIONS

One of my personal favorites is Dragon Mage. Three mana for five damage plus a free Windfall Sign me up!

Another good card to consider is Teferi's Veil, the card is old, and Vanishing is a confusing mechanic, but when you understand how fundementally broken the ability is you start to understand why WotC stopped putting it on cards.

OTHER SUGGESTIONS

Something I've noticed is the low amount of creatures, you might want to add more creatures to the deck, specifically lower mana cost early blocker style creatures like Fog Bank and Beetleback Chief, they provide good blockers for the token matchup as well as fodder for edict effects.

Taking note on seperate meta 1. There is a glaring lack of control in both of our meta. (control deck in my meta is a Sidar Konda of Jamuraa//Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist hatebear style deck 2. My meta is predominately combo driven middle schoolers who hate interacting with the people at the table. This does not appear to be a problem in your meta. 3. On more of a personal note, I would highly advise investing in a full set of both Shocks and Fetches, as they are only going to go up in price as there are less and less openings of MM3 and Kahns of Tarkir boxes and packs. (I am currently working on completing my set of Alpha lands, it's not easy, but it's worth it)

All in all your deck has a lot of potential and I would love to hear how it comes together.

GS10 on Akiri/Kydele, The Chosen Kruphix Line-Slinger

5 days ago

Probably needs to be more streamlined, in my experience Partner Commanders tend to not be very fast unless they are enabling some sort of fast combo, and you don't seem to have a lot of pieces needed to combo off fast.

Paradox Engine is insane with Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix, and it combos perfectly with Isochron Scepter (and a respectable package of instants), easy inclusions that also strenghten Akiri, Line-Slinger incidentally.

I'd run a lot more wheel effects, and there are some not too expensive in the likes of Windfall, Winds of Change, Molten Psyche, Reforge the Soul, also ways to make use of the cards you pitch, like Past in Flames or even Snapcaster Mage, Torrential Gearhulk, Jace, Telepath Unbound and such.

Even if you go infinite on mana, which you can with the cards you already run, I don't see exactly how you'd turn that into a win right away, so you might actually go infinite without being able to win the game on the spot. Also, you can make infinite colorless mana, but not convert it to any color, so even if you draw into your whole deck with Staff of Domination, you wouldn't be able to cast more than a few cards, Gemstone Array is a good addition that helps with that as well, and if you want to win by drawing your whole deck, maybe Laboratory Maniac as well, even though I'd prefer some kind of Fireball which is my weapon of choice.

Check out my deck for any additional insight if you want to. Kydele and Akiri are not the most competitive pair, but they are very underrated nontheless. Really fun duo to play, I just think you need to fine tune your list a bit more to be able to make the most of it consistently ;)

Demonite on Lazav's Mill and Steal

Looks like a fun 1v1 deck! I see you've got the Spell Crumple + Tunnel Vision combo. Nice. Dark Petition and Seal of the Guildpact are spicy. I may have to try those out in my Lazav deck.

If you find you need a bit more mill, I would consider:
Altar of the Brood
Windfall

I like the idea of tutors in a deck with multiple ways to win. If Vampiric Tutor and Demonic Tutor are inconvenient, Beseech the Queen and Diabolic Tutor might enable the most effective one.

More graveyard interactions to consider:
Bojuka Bog
Beacon of Unrest
Body Double

I really like your ramp suite. Very efficient and color fixing focused which is important for casting Lazav. Your lands might need a touch more color fixing?

If you like, check out my multiplayer focused Lazav deck. Always looking for ideas myself!
