Hey, Oakiegg. Thanks for the suggestions.

First of all, I have found this deck to be much less helpless than I previously suspected based on its predecessor Any Color You Like. This was a suprise, but a welcomed one. I think the trick to not being as helpless during early to midgame is the addition of cards such as the pillowfort pieces and small blockers (cmc < 5).

I have looked at Folio of Fancies before, but not Minds Aglow. However, none of them immediately strikes me as perfect fits for this deck.

Minds Aglow is a sorcery speed draw card that lets everyone draw. I prefer to draw on instant speed, since I can then keep mana up for interaction cards (such as counterspells) untill the end of the round before my turn again. I think this looks cool, but I prefer not to tap out on my own turn, and my oponents probably dont want to invest alot either since they already get extra draws from Kami of the Crescent Moon etc.

Folio of Fancies is therefore a better fit IMO, since it can draw me cards instant speed. However, all players gaining no max handsize is a drawback, since I do usually want my opponents to discard down to seven cards to keep some advantage. But more importantly, it just a tad bit too expensive investment for 2 mana to draw 1, or 4 mana to draw 2. Atleast with cards like Behold the Multiverse (which also costs 4) there are upsides like scry 2. Still, this is a card I might playtest in the future.

Thanks again for the suggestions, I really apreciate it :)

Windreader Sphinx Magus of the Moat Maybe Scouting Hawk I love Medomai the Ageless And to actually win the game maybe True Conviction or a bunch of extra turn spells. I would cut Dictate of Heliod and Always Watching and slot Kangee, Sky Warden and maybe Kangee's Lieutenant or Thunderclap Wyvern Also Coastal Piracy and Bident of Thassa seem like theyre worth finding a place for maybe cutting Behold the Multiverse and a wipe. Reveillark and Karmic Guide seem reasonable. I dont know about the 3cmc cantrip flyers without blinking or recurring them. Idk. Cool list tho. I have a blue white kangee deck but I don't have it online. I built it for the same reason, to play against low power decks, but still tough to close out games. Akroma's Will is one great way you already included. GL!

Niv-Mizzet, Parun seems like a nice inclusion. For me Blistercoil Weird and Delver of Secrets  Flip feels underwhelming in edh you can swap them for some more draw or since you like cipher even Triton Shorestalker and Mist-Cloaked Herald.

Since you asked for card draw suggestions the main staples are X spells like Blue Sun's Zenith,Pull from Tomorrow, 4 CMC type Fact or Fiction / Steam Augury or Behold the Multiverse stuff and cantrips like Brainstorm, Ponder etc. There are also wheels like Windfall. Have you checked Scryfall? Their search engine is rather easy to use.

I still haven't build my Niv deck but I plan to put in the transmute package to find me the three combo pieces

Dizzy Spell for Curiosity

Drift of Phantasms for Tandem Lookout or Ophidian Eye

Hope this helps. Cheers!

"This style of dimir" is like 3 decks combined together: Alchemy, Angler-delver and UB Control. I can believe that you can mill yourself out with alchemy, AC, preordains and mulldrifters pretty easily.

  • If you want to play angler-delver - swap mulldrifters for delvers, add brainstorms for alchemy, change preordains for ponders.
  • Alchemy plays only augurs and anglers. Or at least play one Stream of Thought
  • UB control would cut alchemy and throw more spells or non-selfmill CA. Black rose could be helpful.

I would cut main justice for Arms of Hadar. Maybe not repeatable but kills all bully creatures and they can't even protect themselves. Imo AC is not that great of a card. In alchemy it is fine, but even only one bog and this card just feels sad. In the same slot you can use Behold the Multiverse, Think Twice and Pop Quiz - this last one is weird, cause it can ramp you&gains you life and provide reasonable threat later. I takes 5-6 slots in SB, but after little testing, I am very surprised how good this CA is.

oof yeah havent updated this with organized play in mind since the ban announcement... Expressive Iteration is such a great card... i predict it will come back to pioneer eventually ... another thought is Light Up the Stage... bleh i will think on it.... Behold the Multiverse is really good too... might even be better than Dig Through Time for this particular build... good call!

+1 For such a creative deck. RIP for Expressive Iteration. Card was just too good for pioneer. My current replacement is Behold the Multiverse but it just doesn’t feel as smooth.

Hi, Profet93,

I agree with you that drawing is better than scrying, but scrying is just a lot cheaper to do. From the scry cards I currently play, I would not drop Jace, Mirror Mage, because I enjoy playing it, and I would not drop Behold the Multiverse, because its a nice instant draw spell.

That only leaves Retreat to Coralhelm, if Im not overlooking something. I might consider removing Retreat to Coralhelm at some point because it doesnt have that much synergy with the rest of the deck. Earlier, I played both Arcanis the Omnipotent and Walking Atlas, which were really good with it, but now I only have Azami, Lady of Scrolls left.

However, it does give me a free scry per round for three mana, which is pretty nice. And it does synergize with Azami, Lady of Scrolls as well as potentially being usefull for tapping annoying blockers. Maybe in a situation where I have a big Sturmgeist on the table and my opponent has a single flying blocker it could do some work.

So.. Keeping the scrying cards for now I think.

You mention more "card draw" -cards, did you have any spesific ones in mind? Any card suggestions?

I would never play Otherworldly Gaze, it wastes one card and gives you only a little bit bigger gy.

From things you mentioned - you are not fast enough. Well, if you can not make your deck faster, then you need to slow your opponent down. Put more destroy&sacrifice effects (Diabolic Edict, Chainer's Edict) or mass removal like Pestilence, Crypt Rats, Evincar's Justice, Suffocating Fumes with an actual card draw spells like Accumulated Knowledge (it is dead against decks with bojuka), Think Twice, Behold the Multiverse or Deep Analysis.

Good creatures - Delver of Secrets  Flip (very aggressive), Augur of Bolas (good against aggro decks), it is slow but it fills gy - The Modern Age  Flip

Other things - at this moment I would cut like 5 lands and you can swap some of them with Evolving Wilds or Ash Barrens (additional cards that can fill gy) cause you have so many cantrips. The same as I would cut imps. It is more for gy focused decks, UB is not.
