Mizzix of the Izmagnus Discussion

Guerric on [Primer] Casting the Mythal: An Inalla Guide

DonaldFuck Yeah, I have a lot of triple blue in this deck, and even double red can occasionally be tricky, So I've left if for now. And while Burnished Hart can also be fetched with Trophy Mage since its an artifact creature, it does come online slower, which probably isn't ideal for the mana hungry nature of this deck, so I've left Chromatic Lantern for now and may keep it that way. Isochron Scepter with Dramatic Reversal is always good, but it goes better in my Mizzix of the Izmagnus spellslinger deck where I usually win with massive x-spells, and I've been thinking about adding it as an alternate win con for Reiterate there.

gavriel1136 on Overperforming Cards?

Volcanic Offering , is a massive overperformer for my Mizzix of the Izmagnus deck. Granted. I can cast it for R in that deck, but every time I've played it, it's been devastating. With the slightest politicking, you can remove the two biggest threats on the board and cut the legs out from a ramp player.

Do it right, and they won't even blame you, since you only did half the targeting!

KBK7101 Thanks so much! I've been plotting this for some time, so its great to finally finish it! I'm hoping to do a similar one for Scion of the Ur-Dragon next. As for Strixhaven, I would have thought that a set focused on wizards would certainly have something for Inalla. Yet it seems most of the Grixis wizards in the set are built around synergizing with instants and sorceries and not ETBs, which makes some of them very ideal for spellslinger decks like my Mizzix of the Izmagnus deck or my friend's Kalamax, the Stormsire deck, but less so for a wizards tribal deck. The recent card that I will almost certainly add (once I can figure out what to cut) is Pyre of Heroes from Kaldheim. This card will almost certainly be extraordinarily powerful here in both tutoring out our utility pieces and combos, so do expect an update with that one included soon.

When {cardname} dies or is exiled, return it to its owner's hand.

Whenever you cast {cardname}, you get an experience counter. Spells you cast with X in their cost, cost less for each experience counter you have.

1/1

Yeah that would make a lot more sense. The never really being gone is still powerful, it's a lot better than for example Squee, Goblin Nabob because it mentions exile and it actually does something when you cast it, but the ability is a lot harder to break or abuse if the mana value is 3, not 1. It would actually give you a late game plan. It's easier to trigger, but harder to use than Mizzix of the Izmagnus . It looks interesting now! :D

I think you'd need to word it a bit differently, because right now, you're using X twice for different things. Also, the "when this creature is on the battlefield"-line is redundant, static abilities in cards always just work when the permanent is on the battlefield.

Maybe work with experience counters? They seem made for an idea like this (like Mizzix of the Izmagnus )

I personally think 1 mana is a little too little, too much benefit for too low costs, with a Phyrexian Altar this card would immediately be able to enable X spells where X is arbitrarily large. I think a cost of would be much more fair to use than just , but I tried to create exactly the card you described.

Hey there! Spellslinging is a super popular theme in commander (assuming that's what you're going for), and I have a few options you might want to look into! On a side note, if you like getting suggestions I recommend marking your deck as "help" under its edit settings so people are more inclined to comment on it. Additionally, you can specify which printing when inputting a card, but for Rowan it would be "1x Rowan, Scholar of Sparks (STX:278)".

Commanders:

Will and Rowan are GREAT, but if you'd like, here are a few instant/sorcery matters commanders in ! Most of these are also great cards just in the deck whether you use them as commanders or not: - Veyran, Voice of Duality - Mizzix of the Izmagnus - Niv-Mizzet, Parun (goes infinite with multiple cards such as Ophidian Eye , Tandem Lookout , Curiosity , and more. Especially with something like Laboratory Maniac out) - Melek, Izzet Paragon - Zaffai, Thunder Conductor

Lands/Ramp: Since this would be a spellslinger deck, I'll stay away from too many artifacts, but here are a few ramp cards and good lands to consider!

Some good Instants/Sorceries There's obviously tons upon tons upon tons of these, but here are a few that I enjoy using.

Instants/Sorceries Matter: There are also tons of these, but just to name a few:

I hope this helps! Some suggestions may be out of budget and others may not be, and on the other hand you might have already known about most of these cards, but either way I hope this is of use to you! Be sure to check out some of my decks like Double Trouble EDH ⫸PRIMER⫷, but most of all, good luck on your deck! Have a fantastic day, and happy tapping.

Debatra on If a Copy of "X" …

Fairly sure I understand this already, but it never hurts to double-check.

Let's say I have God-Eternal Kefnet and Mizzix of the Izmagnus on the board. If I use Kefnet's ability to reveal and copy an Instant spell, the copy goes to my hand and I decide whether to cast it or let it fizzle out. If I cast it, it follows all the same rules for casting the original spell (706.12).

Since card type is a copyable value, and this copy was specifically cast instead of being created on the stack like most copies of instants, will Mizzix's ability trigger if the spell has a higher CMC than I have experience counters?

Gidgetimer on Veyran, Voice of Duality, what …

Oh sorry skipped that one as I was referring back and forth between my response and your question.

Aria of Flame , Sphinx-Bone Wand , and Mizzix of the Izmagnus all add two counters. Runaway Steam-Kin has an intervening if clause and will only trigger if the clause is true and only have the effect if the clause is still true upon resolution. So, you are correct that if you do nothing the second trigger will not add counters, but if you make the second trigger to resolve will add counters.
