Love any Niv-Mizzet deck, and making one with such a small budget seems like a challenge. If you were interested in other low cost(price wise) cards i think Mercurial Chemister would fit in relatively well, Also you could replace one of your counter spells with Overwhelming Denial(I say this because i really like the surge mechanic).

It also seems like your mana could be upgraded for a relatively low cost, Izzet Boilerworks, Swiftwater Cliffs, Vivid Crag, and Vivid Creek are all very low cost, that I think should be considered for a deck that has many cards (such as the counter spells) are somewhat colour intensive and might be needed earlier on

jrgette I'll consider Overwhelming Denial and Mercurial Chemister for the main, I believe I had the Chemister in for a bit. :p

As for the mana base, I'll consider the Vivid lands and bounce tapland (already got the cliffs). Thanks for the suggestions and upvote!

Inner Fire is nice with Comet Storm when you have your whole deck in hand.

FIREphaenix Inner Fire definitely will find a place here, as it for sure helps make Comet Storm become very lethal. Thanks for the suggestion and +1!

No problem, having said that, Enter the Infinite combos well with Inner Fire.

I like the card, but the main problem is that I don't have Laboratory Maniac so I can win the next turn. It's also rather mana-intensive, with no means of cheating it out. Not to mention it being somewhat hard to fit in.. I appreciate the suggestion, however! :)

This is a great deck, and I have one that's almost identical. I know it's a budget build, so some of these cards might be a bit to pricy, but I will suggest them anyway. To start with, Alhammarret's Archive is a must for any type of draw deck, as it's essentially an easy to cast Thought Reflection. Mindmoil is also up there, providing you with even more chaos. I also believe that some group hug can stop an early lights out for you. Howling Mine, Dictate of Kruphix, and Fevered Visions are all good ways of doing that. Lastly, Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded is actually viable in a deck like this. If you need anymore reference material, you can check out my take on Niv-Mizzet, drawer of cards right here. Again, this is a great deck and I wish the best of luck to you.

Ajuntoson I would love to use Alhammarret's Archive in the deck. It's a tad on the more expensive end (Sol Ring was in here for quite some time, but I had to cut it to accommodate for other cards I wanted to use). Mindmoil is already in the deck, it's a very good card. :) As far as the group hug cards go, I think testing the deck against my playgroup will help me determine whether or not I should add them. Until then, I'll consider them.

I'll be sure to take a look at your deck too, thanks for the suggestions and upvote!

Your gameplan may be burn, but Chasm Skulker seems like an excellent beater, it applies pressure and allows for nice blocks. Although a bit slow Arcanis the Omnipotent seems badass. I would also run Interpret the Signs and/or Riddle of Lightning, scry is crazy powerful and it's burn n' draw, hard to get more izzet than that. Lastly this is pricy so I'd just put these in the "Upgrades" section, but Omniscience and Grafted Exoskeleton will end the game. Omniscience as soon as it drops and exoskeleton very soon. Good luck!

Have fun against Nekusar, the Mindrazor and Leovold, Emissary of Trest.

Simon_Williamson Chasm Skulker does sound like a very good creature for pressure and beatdown, I'll add him to the maybeboard for now. :) I really like Interpret the Signs, because of the draw power it provides. Arcanis is a tad slow, but he really helps with hand advantage. My only concern is that I may not have enough mana for his casting cost, though Enter the Infinite is doable (that card is a win condition on its own with Inner Fire and Comet Storm). I'll definitely add in Omniscience to the Upgrade section, I don't know why it wasn't there in the first place, haha. I honestly think Grafted Exoskeleton could definitely warrant a spot, I did have one lying around at one point, but traded it because I had no use for it at the time. I may want to cut down on the infect because people generally hate Infect.

Thanks for the suggestions and +1!

It's great to see how much your deck has progressed over the ages Triton. Congratulations!

Thanks FIREphaenix! It's definitely amazing seeing where this deck is now compared to when I first made it. Honestly never expected it to be so popular. :)

Well, Niv is a fun commander to build with, and people love saving, so good budget decks are always up there. Also, ever thought of using Collective Defiance? It's $2.50 right now, but the price will definitely drop once it rotates out.

I think if you wanted to you could make this deck more centered on Windfall effects and get to a kill even quicker with something like Geth's Grimoire, which is compatible with your budget restrictions.

StoicRemora I like the idea of Geth's Grimoire, I'll rest it out in the deck when I get the chance, thanks for the suggestion!
