Knowledge and Power: Niv-Mizzet's Mania

Commander / EDH UR (Izzet)


Knowledge is power, and power is power. No one knows this more than Niv-Mizzet, the leader of the Izzet guild. This deck is centred completely around gaining knowledge and keeping power, at any means necessary. Even if it means a descent into madness.

The primary goal is to scry and draw cards, and then hit people in the face with damage because I do so: either with Knowledge and Power, or with the Firemind himself. Sphinx of Uthuun, Enigma Drake, Goblin Electromancer, Curator of Mysteries, Guttersnipe, Runaway Steamkin and Charmbreaker Devils are my greatest assets regarding my spells. My spells power them up, are their tool or my creatures help them to become cheaper. Jaya Ballard also assists with my instant and sorcery spells, providing mana. Murmuring Mystic will make Bird Illusions with every instant and sorcery spells I cast. Jori En, one of my favourite characters in the MTG lore, helps me with extra card draw and give Niv-Mizzet another excuse to breathe fire into someone's face.

One of my panic buttons is Dragonshift, especially in Overload. To have every single one of my creatures, big or small, temporarily turn into 4/4 dragons is not a bad deal.

This is the first deck I built that I built on a whim with no planning. Its theme is spellslinging mania. Niv-Mizzet's mania. I hope you like it nonetheless! Please leave any suggestions. I would highly appreciate it.
