+1 for showing me the way to make Nivmagus even better! Im breaking my head thinking of a way to create a deck using Burning Vengeance and this might just be it!
I just think that there are too few Burning Vengeance s here, if one would Erase or o-ring it there wouldn't be much more around to create trouble. Pillar of Flame could be nice to deal with future Golgari zombies and it's a 1-mana 2-damage to flashback with Snapcaster.

i can always add another burning vengeance if im playing white or green pillar of flame is another nice sideboard card for zombie matchups. with my mana curve so low i dont think i need to give up any spots to ramping

good idea on the guttersnipes
-2 nightbirds clutches, -1 geistflame, +3 guttersnipe
September 10, 2012 8:09 p.m.
Also, no Goblin Electromancer ?

- it would lower my instant and sorcery count
- it doesnt help me cast my artful dodges, geistflame, or faithless lootings the first time.

Blue and red are not my typical colors, but wouldn't Delver fit well in this deck?
September 10, 2012 9:31 p.m.
he would..... but I hate playing delver soooooooo....... no
September 10, 2012 9:34 p.m.
one or two Talrand, Sky Summoner would fit nicely in here giving you a 2/2 flyer for each of your spells that you exile

this is a burning vengeance deck to start with, it just looks like it plays well with the 3 creatures I have. im not sure I want to take out any more instants and sorceries for talrand
September 11, 2012 12:49 a.m.
I was more thinking -1 ring +1 talrand. I mean 2/2 flyers is always nice but so is lots of burn
September 11, 2012 12:53 a.m.
well actually I didn't think about taking out the rings lol thats a pretty good idea =)
September 11, 2012 1:04 a.m.
woot! looks good. +1 from me. forgot to do it earlier lol

Cool deck, my friend is looking at doing something similar. Is this possible without 4x Snappys?
September 11, 2012 1:07 p.m.

Ah yeah, I see what you're saying. I'll tinker around with it and see if I can find any replacements.
September 11, 2012 4:36 p.m.
if u take out the snappys I would say that to keep this aggressive, you might want to put in delvers. as much as I hate that card it really would do well in this deck if you needed to replace a creature

yes because burning vengeance triggers when a spell is cast, not when it resolves

This is very similar to the deck i have been planning from the second i saw nivmagus elemental. I preordered a bunch of cards for it already so mine will be hitting up fnm very soon. Your deck gave me a few ideas that may improve mine.Thanks +1 from me.
