jubale you are so right. Vizier of the Menagerie is amazing. Even without Nissa the card is great but is busted with her on the battlefield. Thanks for the suggestion!

Nice deck! You already commented on my Drake Haven deck. I still haven't made the jump from Izzet to Grixis, mostly due to the mana. How is the mana for you? It seems a little sketchy with all the double colors. How often are you ok with tapping out for New Perspectives? Is the effect good enough in your playtesting to warrant the mana cost?

Thanks for the comment jubale. I totally forgot about Manglehorn. Added it to the sideboard. I was planning on adding Thalia to the sideboard for combo, so I added that as well. I moved Serpopard to the sideboard for now. It will likely be removed entirely. Thanks again!

Thanks for the comment InfuriatedBrute. I agree that Gideon's Intervention would be a great sideboard addition. Obviously great for combo, but also great against Heart of Kiran since, as you mentioned, this deck struggles with fliers. I'd consider Compulsory Rest over dec in stone, but would keep dec in stone in the board as the former is terrible against vehicles. I'll have to do some playtesting with Toolcraft Exemplar. It is definitely a good card as long as I can turn it on consistently (which is currently dependend on clues). I also like the card draw so that is why the Refiner is in there for the most part. I agree about Serpopard. Good sideboard against control, but playtesting has been underwhelming otherwise. You think Selfless Spirit or Spell Queller or I could even do something like Aerial Responder as replacement?? Thanks again!

Thanks for the suggestion FluffyNinjastar. I am still playtesting the deck, including those cards. I initially chose Catalog over the two you suggested due to it being an instant and I wanted most of my discard outlets to be on my opponents turn. Not to say that those are bad cards, I am just still trying to figure out the best play style for this deck and the right balance of cards. Thanks again!

Adamram1985 it might be good in an aristocrats deck or in a deck with the black god maybe? I wouldn't pair it with Drake Haven personally. Go right ahead and borrow away! There could be a good deck in here somewhere. This seems fun but not super competitive at the moment. Tuning required..

I think there could be potential in a Bant value creature deck (similar to the Bant Coco decks) with Nissa, Steward of Elements as the centerpiece. Get her to 3 loyalty and have all your creatures be under 3 cmc. Just think of the card advantage!

Thanks for the comment Adamram1985. Archfiend of Ifnir is a sweet card, and could definitely wreck some boards in the right deck. I will certainly playtest with that in there. One thing I liked about being Izzet is the Mana is SO much better, but I do agree that going Grixis would give me access to some really great cards. I don't love Tormenting Voice due to it being Sorcery speed, but it was definitely an option. I was trying to keep this deck playing mostly on my opponents turn, so I went with lesser played cards like Catalog. Enigma Drake is sweet btw. It could be huge in this deck! Thanks again and I'll let you know how the playtesting goes!

Thanks for the comment Zaueski. Your deck looks sweet! and way more competitive than mine (at least mine in it's first draft form :) ). I went with Pull from Tomorrow over Hieroglyphic Illumination because it allows you be more flexible with your mana and has the potential to draw you a bunch of cards. It also has a built in activation for Drake haven which I liked. Hieroglyphic Illustration will only fuel the win-con if you cycle it and as far as 4 mana draw 2 spells go, I'd rather run Glimmer of Genius. That said, I still might try it out if I find that Pull from Tomorrow isn't as good as I think it is..

Thanks again for the comment and happy brewing!

I agree with Hyperalgialysis. You should definite try it out. My initial thought is that it will likely slow you down more than you would like, as you will have to take a turn off to cast it and then wait a turn to start seeing results. It is a functional reprint of Parallel Lives, which from what I understand never saw a ton of Standard play, but is a Commander all star so there's that. Best of luck and happy brewing with the new set!
