Said on Competitive Score?...

Personally, I dont think price should be categorized any differently, hookedonkronix. They typically are expensive for a reason, and that reason is often unconditional value/power level.

Ill be honest, my budget deck is not competitive. And the meter reads that, which is good. My more expensive decks tend to mirror that in competitiveneee too.

But just because a deck is cheaper and has a more casual reading, doesnt mean it isnt a good deck. Thats my two cents.

I'm sorry if your play group starts to dislike Mizzix (as if they already didn't!), haha.

I think having combos in here is important because it gives you a definitive way of winning, but they still don't have to be played in order to win. And no one can complain too much about the combos here, because you at least didn't add Laboratory Maniac to the mix! Haha.

The deck is definitely looking nice, man. And I think keeping Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast in the SB isn't a bad idea, with all things considered.

As always, holler at me if you have any questions or anything! Also, you are more than welcome to take a look at my Mizzix build for anything I might have missed mentioning, but I have to admit that it is definitely not budget friendly...haha.

Keep me updated on here!

If you are considering Gaea's Cradle, I would definitely recommend Growing Rites of Itlimoc  Flip as well (or even instead if you don't want to drop a ton of money!). It flips easy and becomes another Cradle land.

Anyway, nice looking deck, man. +1 from me.

I had to take the time to comment about how cool this deck is. I never looked into why Narset was a high tiered commander, but after play testing this I have found out why. She is brutal.

For anyone confused about why Narset is so powerful, give this build a play test. +1 from me, man.

I say I won't suggest any more until you see these, but I forgot to mention that you might want to cut some creatures too.

Again, this is only my opinion, so feel free to ignore me here, but I would recommend cutting every creature except for Guttersnipe, maybe Hypersonic Dragon (for flash), maybe Jori En, Ruin Diver (for card advantage), Psychosis Crawler, and Talrand, Sky Summoner.

Now I'll let you look these over! Haha.

So this will be the same as my above comment. Anything I mention here does not mean that they are bad cards, rather I personally think they are less efficient for your deck's goals and strategies.

These are some cards I would look into cutting/replacing: Show

I won't suggest any more until you see these and gauge whether or not these would be good cuts and replacements. I know there is more you could do if you wanted to, so let's just see what you think so far before we get too crazy here! Haha. Keep me updated on what you're thinking, man! Always enjoy helping other players.

Combos and combo setters even (like Doomsday and maybe even Firemind's Foresight or Enter the Infinite) could also be used. Value cards like Necromancy, Ad Nauseam, Dark Confidant, and so on might also be useful to go off of.

I dont know if this is already part of it, and if it isnt I know it would be hard to monitor because people add combos all the time, but I think thats a fair way to do it.

Lastly, avg CMC. I know that some decks can run a high avg CMC but on average when you see a deck with stupid high CMC it isnt consistent enough to be on the competitive side. Thats all just my two cents, and Im not tripping over this meter, haha.

Typically early game for decks like this is a bunch of card draw and control. Having enough counter magic and using it to stop threats that will end the game or put you at such a disadvantage that you can't return from.

The card drawing is for you to add XP counters on Mizzix and draw into your win cons or combos (if you decide to run any).

But again, these are not cards that you have to include! If you put half of them, all of them, or none of them into the deck it will be fine! Some of these are dependent on your play group (like Pyroblast and Red Elemental Blast requiring a blue player in your group), but hopefully some of these you can find useful!

Not gonna lie, totally didn't even know that it was $7! Sorry about that, haha. It's definitely worth saving up for, but not anything you have to have.

And I totally understand having Lab Man house banned, haha.

Nice deck, though man! If you have any questions or anything, I'm always happy to help.

I don't know if you are cool with infinite combos, but you could do some infinite mana combos for very cheap.

You already have Reality Spasm, so if you added Reiterate (which is also just a pretty decent card to have!) you could copy Spasm with Reiterate and its buyback, untap lands and continue to copy Spasm infinitely. Just so long as you cast Spasm for X>2 and Mizzix has some XP counters on her.

Sorry for all this! Hope any helps, and if you are anti-infinite combo then disregard all of this, haha. Cheers!

I'm not the creator of this deck, but as a Mizzix and cEDH player I can help a little with answering some of your questions, ShinakoX2. Enter the Infinite is similar to Doomsday in the sense that you flat out get your combo(s). If you cast EtI you should ideally win on that turn.

As for your mixed results on Paradox Engine, you said that you have had times where you had nothing to spend it on or you ran into a different combo. With all the draw that Mizzix kind of demands, not having something to spend the mana on probably isn't a terribly common occurrence. And when it comes to being able to hit one of your other combos, that is not an issue really at all. Paradox Engine is a good redundancy card that enables more play, which should almost always end in finding a combo or win.

That is my two cents though, and Nakhla might have something else or more to add to that. Hope that helps some, though!
