No worries Saccox

I liked your comments.


I took another look at all the Pioneer Instants under 5MV, to see if there is a better one than Aetherspouts

I came across an old favourite - Polymorphist's Jest

This card has gotten me out of all kinds of trouble, since M15.

I've tested with it in this deck, and it has quite a lot of flexibility.

You can nerf a Planeswalker which has turned into a Creature, you can turn opponent fliers into ground Creatures (to get lethal flying damage through), or you can prevent an opponent having enough combat damage for lethal.

As a result I am removing Aetherspouts for Polymorphist's Jest

Gotta love those 1/1 vanilla Froggies!

Bubble Matrix would allow your little guys to block big scary guys if they had to. (Ooh that went up in price. Maybe not)

You might need a couple cards to keep from being attacked. Propaganda is the obvious choice but there are many others. I see Aetherspouts there but I'd put in a couple more.

Seems like you're really into the Ensoul builds. I ran mine from Standard to Modern to Frontier for a week and now Pioneer. I think I landed on a pretty great deck here Jeskai Ensoul (PNR). Just played a mirror match against you, Game 1 was fun but quick in my favor and game 2 was fun where we kept gaining life until my creature got bigger and gained double strike from Boros Charm . Stubborn Denial does wonders against your main board removal.

I like the offset from Izzet to mono blue but you might consider Azorious for All That Glitters . You have a good mass of artifacts and Glitters can make any creature much larger than otherwise possible. Also Stubborn Denial is an amazing card in something like this. You may also like The Blackstaff of Waterdeep . It does the same as Animating Faerie for the same cost (cast and activate) but it recurring in case the target were to die and not as restrictive only targetting nontoken as opposed to noncreature like Faerie but doesn't come down with a body and is legendary.

I like Padeem, Consul of Innovation that's a cool card. I hate running 4 drops though in a deck this quick in the main which is why I run only 3. I may switch out Thopter Spy Network for Padeem though because he doesn't protect the artifact that may be on the field when he hits due to instant speed removal but he protects all the others unless he gets hit as well. Although Spy Network is harder to hit and makes a threat every turn Spy Network may be better that hurts sometimes. I don't run Whirler Rogue because I don't like the 4 drops but I can see where it shines by tapping down equipment that normally don't tap to make your guys unblockable.

The Shadowspear in the main is a sweet addition and when facing any sort of aggressive build I always side mine in. Compared to my build, however, yours seems a little slower with the enabler cards ( Ensoul Artifact , Animating Faerie , Skilled Animator being slightly more mana value than mine and the support cards you run being of 4 drop while mine run at 3 or less for the main. Adding in All That Glitters may make all the difference there and you'll have access to Settle the Wreckage in the side instead of Aetherspouts . That extra mana on the board wipe may make all the difference.

Sweet deck though I would consider taking a look at mine whenever you get the chance I have the entire deck laid out in the description and have been running this stuff for basically as long as it existed.

Guerric on Mizzix puts the "X" in Excellence!

Impulse OUT Deflecting Swat IN

Contentious Plan Sort of replaced Impulse as my two-mana card for early counters. The value of Deflecting Swat can hardly be overstated, as it provides early protection for Mizzix while being relevant all game long.

Aetherspouts OUT Introduction to Annihilation IN

Spouts is such a conditional card, and we have plenty of board wipes when we count or kill-the-table x-spells. Intro is great in that its free permanent removal for us much of the time.

Overwhelming Intellect OUT Dramatic Reversal IN

A counterspell that can only counter a creature spell is underwhelming, and we added swat. I can't believe Dramatic Reversal hadn't been added earlier. It plays into our combo with Reiterate , and allows us to fetch the whole combo with Firemind's Foresight . A true must include!

Fall of the Titans OUT Expropriate IN

Fall was always our worst x-spell, and we have more than enough in the deck. For a replacement win con its far better to just take another turn and steal everyone's best thing. The greatest thing about this card is that its so cheap to cast with Mizzix!

Spring / Mind OUT Archmage Emeritus IN

Spring is great but sorcery speed and a one-off. Archmage will draw us cards the whole game. We're up to three whole creatures in this deck now!

Howl of the Horde OUT Solve the Equation IN

I've got plenty of copy dorks here, so another tutor is great, especially one that will usually cost me just two blue mana!

Sultai_Sir on Niv still to slow...

Hey man, I've got some suggestions:

Talisman of Creativity: Another ramp spell, and taps for colorless if you need it to.

Keep Watch: Absolutely ridiculous card, often draws you 5+ cards at least, and I once drew 24 cards. Brilliant.

Ophidian Eye: I know it's in your maybeboard, but it's still a combo with Niv-Mizzet.

Windfall: Draw ALL the cards.

Whirlpool Warrior: Basically a personal double Windfall, if you're playing your deck right, you should always have the most cards.

Jace's Archivist: Man, the Windfalls keep on coming! This one's one you can do every turn, which is just pure value, plus it disrupts your opponent's gameplan when you're wheeling every turn.

AEtherize/AEtherspouts: Just say no to any deck that's attacking. Hint: most decks.

Anyways, hope this helps, and as always, Happy Tapping!
