Personally I'd cut Quicken , Divination , Mindswipe , Secure the Wastes , and a few Dissolve .

I would add in Opt , Lightning Helix , Dovin's Veto and some more good planeswalkers. Also another land or two.

Hey man! Decks looks like a good time. If counterburn is what you're going for I would look into maybe running Expansion / Explosion and Mindswipe . Expansion can let you copy your opponents ramp spell, tutor, draw spell, or even a counter spell. Then the explosion part is also card draw that deals damage. I think it might be better then Blue Sun's Zenith . Then Mindswipe is both a counter and burn in spell 1 card. Let me know how they turn out!

inuvash255, I'd run a Temur ramp deck with a playset of that and Mindswipe , because I'm a weeb like that lololol.


Verissal of Eternia

Legendary Creature - Vampire Specter

Flash, Flying

When Verissal of Eternia enters the battlefield, target player puts the top X cards of their library into their graveyard and you draw X cards.

4/3


Rakdos, Bloodlusted

Legendary Creature - Demon

Haste

When Rakdos, Bloodlusted enters the battlefield target player loses X life and Rakdos, Blooslusted deals X divided as you choose among any number of creatures and / or Planeswalkers.

Your blood shall quench my blades and my thirst.

6/5


Make an Artifact Creature with a casting cost of . That's right, four X's. Let's see what you can come up with for that price.

TheDracogenius on Niv-Mizzet Think Tank

Your deck seems to pull in too many directions, so neither of them are fully realized. You have a dragon subtheme without significant tribal payoff, not even Dragonstorm. These dragons also cost a lot of mana at sorcery speed, so your X-Spells like Mindswipe and such lose a lot of their use an value because you do not have the resources to spare. Vedalken Orrery etc. is not enough to balance this out. Dragons do not at all synergize with any part of the textbox on Niv-Mizzet, nor with your artifacts, apart from Hellkite Tyrant, which is a great card regardless. Your artifact subtheme uses the wrong payoffs, like Thopter Engineer... what artifact creatures are in your deck that need haste? Next to none, so this is a bad card in this context. You have 23 creatures in a deck that should be primarily built around spells and slinging them. Your deck feels very unsynergistic and self hindering because of this. You should pick one of these strategies and run with it, not all of them. You only run 19 instants and sorceries, which is a little above half as much as you want for a spellslinging theme and by far not enough to make an Electrostatic Field worth it. Also your deck lacks mana fixing and mana rocks, which would go together with your artifact theme. You should strife for about 10 pieces of ramp at least in any EDH deck to make sure it can function properly and fast. Streamline your deck, pick one strategy, and add mana ramp to make it run much more smoothly.

If this is not your style, you could also switch generals and embrace another strategy, for example Jhoira. I am not trying to be mean or tell you how to have fun, as I know myself that putting 60 awesome cards in your deck is fun... but being able to cast them is what makes them even more fun, so you should make sure that your deck can do that.

gergonthedestroyer on Mizzix of the Izmagnus, I'll burn!

I really like some of your ideas to produce mana and will be incorporating them into my version. It's Mizzix in the Mix if you would like to look and see if my ideas work for you.

I went more "all in" on the experience counters and have found that colored mana is at a premium. Therefore, I changed my counter spells from things like Counterflux, Dissipate, or Spell Crumple to things like Condescend, Power Sink, or Syncopate. That way I only need one blue open and I always get an experience counter. Mindswipe gives added burn value, and I like Spell Burst over Forbid as the game lock.

I also tried to replace creatures with spells where possible, so Archaeomancer turned into Mystic Retrieval and Recall, and Lunar Mystic turned into Whispers of the Muse. I also found that effects like Guttersnipe and Electrostatic Field didn't work as well for me as just having another burn spell. This may just personal style though.

Blasphemous Act takes out Mizzix with everything else. You could try Bonfire of the Damned, Sudden Demise, or even Rolling Thunder for some board control. Fanning the Flames looks even better in your list than mine I think.

You are right about there being a problem if Mizzix gets too expensive. I added Inexorable Tide to keep the experience counters coming even with Mizzix in the Command Zone. That allows you to just set up for one big turn where you recast him and win.
