Firemind's Foresight Discussion

Daedalus19876 on Endless Forms Most Beautiful: Vadrok EDH [PRIMER]

Corz1lla; Thank you! I usually win through combos, but I suspect that's just a difference in playgroups :) I should probably test Narset's Reversal over Unsubstantiate... And yeah, unfortunately Firemind's Foresight is just too much mana here. Plus it doesn't fully fetch any of my combos, since all my combos require at least one non-instant card. F's F is much better in a Mizzix deck, which can use it as aa 2-or-3 mana triple tutor, and immediately win.

Brefin: I considered running Cephalid Breakfast in here, but since I'm no longer running Oracle, that combo is a bit unreliable as a wincon for me. Ascendancy loops are awesome, I just don't want to run the white haha.

Also, Stitch in Time was disappointing so it's back out again. Lotus Petal, Mana Drain, and Narset's Reversal are fighting for that slot.

Kalamata If you get to 4 experience counters then you can cast Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual, or Seething Song and copy it with Reiterate. At four counters Mizzix will reduce the spell and buyback cost to just 2 red mana (Desperate Ritual, Pyretic Ritual, and Seething Song will produce more than 2). Therefore you produce infinite mana, rack up your storm count as high as you want, and then cast Banefire for the win. The storm count only really matters for Temporal Fissure, and Thousand-Year Storm is more of a bait than a mandatory win con (I usually win without it), but that's the main combo.

You can grab almost all of the pieces with Firemind's Foresight (Either Mystical Tutor (To grab Banefire), Whispers of the Muse (assuming you have 5 experience counters), or a counterspell for 1, Desperate Ritual for 2, and Reiterate on 3).

You can also win through Enter the Infinite and either Laboratory Maniac or Jace, Wielder of Mysteries.

Past in Flames, Mystic Retrieval, Snapcaster Mage, and Mizzix's Mastery give you redundancy and let you keep going even if someone stops or counters you (Though that is part of the reason we run so many counter spells).

All in all, the deck plays very quiet and unassuming until it's ready, at which point it explodes.

ZorkKnight on Mizzix of the Izmagnus: Ride the Lightning

Have you ever considered Reality Spasm as a combo piece (fits snugly into the 2 mana slot of Firemind's Foresight) or Invert / Invent as a tutor?

Also, think it's worth running Flux Channeler to proliferate experience counters while Mizzix is unavaible

Saw the link and request for budget suggestions. I haven't played Melek but I am currently playing Mizzix of the Izmagnus and used to play Keranos, God of Storms. I'm a fan or UR all-around. The suggestions below are fairly generic since I'm unsure of how you want to win. Suggestions are based around cards I've used before in 60-card formats or in EDH with the previously mentioned legendaries, and should be under $5 each.

Milkspy on $250 Mizzix's Foresight

Nice list, though I wonder why a 2 cmc ritual like Desperate Ritual isn't included? This way Firemind's Foresight is a 1 card combo when fetching Reiterate , Desperate Ritual and Lightning Bolt . While having mizzix in play with 3 xp counters.

I mean, if you want to be "Mr. Lightning Bolts" in Izzet, you've gotta have the Lightning Bolt , Reset , Reiterate , Firemind's Foresight combo.

Right on man, thxs. I actually had Springleaf Drum out for swapping but not sure why it didnt go in. I also do have Firemind's Foresight from the pre-con (I think it came out for an x-spell as I cant think of another reason it was swapped. My Jalira, Master Polymorphist deck has all my good blue token generaltors (as of few years ago) in it at the moment but I've been thinking of taking it apart. Since it's release (Mizzix pre-con) I've seen and pulled some pretty good cards for this deck, has there been any major upgrades you've made w/newer cards?
