Nezahal, Primal Tide Discussion

Dildawg on Niv-Mizzet Parun EDH

Nemesis So I guess my strategy for this deck is to play as many sorcerys and instants as possible so I can do as much damage as possible with Niv Mizzet Parun. I'm really looking for cards that copy instant and sorcery spells and some cards with "No maximum hand size".

Thanks for the suggestions I've already took a few into account and added them. Every card here is one I own so I'm not looking to spend a whole bunch if I can help it. But with that said, I'm probably willing to realistically spend like an extra 30 maybe 40 on this thing.

I'm also looking at cards like Nezahal, Primal Tide & Jace, Wielder of Mysteries .

Hey, nice first blue Commander deck.

With Syr I think you want to draw cards, more than usual because this fuels the amount of power she has to attack with.

Cards within the budget to consider adding:

With Narset only you benefit from the draw of cards from Mine, Dictate, Kami and Folio. This is a powerful effect especially with Folio.

Cards to consider cutting:

  • Temple of the False God
  • Aether Gale
  • Distortion Strike
  • Slip Through Space
  • Burnished Hart
  • Guard Gomazoa
  • Hover Barrier
  • Worn Powerstone
  • Cancel
  • Illusionist's Gambit
  • Drake Umbra
  • Open Into Wonder
  • Flight of Fancy
  • Kumena's Awakening
  • Thaumatic Compass
  • Chemister's Insight

Because you have Thassa, God of the Sea who's a repeatable source of making Syr unblockable then I don't think you need a lot of these cards that are a single effect (only making Syr unblockable for one turn). Good luck with your deck.

I would say to have a mix of cheap mana cost creatures that do something such as Knight of Autumn , Coiling Oracle , and Eternal Witness and big creatures that are an immediate threat such as Hydra Omnivore , Nezahal, Primal Tide or even Sun Titan .

The true mvps for this deck are Food Chain and Aluren , but those are almost definitely more competitive than you are looking for.

I know you're looking for non-wheel card draw. I don't love cantrips in EDH unless there is a number-of-spells-matters effect in play but they can smooth out a deck a bit. Ponder , Preordain , Portent , Sleight of Hand , Serum Visions , etc. The sweet spot in around 3-5 CMC for me, ideally drawing CMC -1 but there aren't a ton of spells that efficient. I don't love Divination in EDH (2 for 3) but it's the gold-standard in 60-card decks for a quickie hand refill. There are tons of efficient cards like Divination too.

There are a ton of "draw 3, discard 1" for 4 or 5 mana, which are okay. Sift , Trial of Knowledge , and Amass the Components , for example. Many are costed for being commons, which isn't where you wanna be in EDH. There should be plenty of good, efficient cards to draw from though. At the same time, you have a lot of great high-CMC draw, like Consecrated Sphinx and Thought Reflection, so having a few Divination effects might smooth out your draws.

Some suggestions: Concentrate , Windfall , Cathartic Reunion , Plea for Power , Tidings , Nin, the Pain Artist , Finale of Revelation , Mind Spring , Braingeyser , Stroke of Genius , Blue Sun's Zenith , Fact or Fiction , Chart a Course , Ugin's Insight , Treasure Cruise , Dig Through Time , Kumena's Awakening , Fevered Visions , Honden of Seeing Winds , Reverse Engineer , Read the Runes , Precognitive Perception , Distant Memories , Arcane Encyclopedia , Endless Atlas , Trail of Evidence , Theft of Dreams , Borrowing 100,000 Arrows , Nezahal, Primal Tide , Kefnet the Mindful , Cavalier of Gales , Combustible Gearhulk , Thassa, God of the Sea , Shared Discovery , Secrets of the Golden City , Vivisection , Weight of Memory , Recurring Insight , Breakthrough , Niv-Mizzet, Parun , Deep Analysis , Gush , Invoke the Firemind , Expansion / Explosion , Chandra, Flamecaller , Dragon Mage , Wild Guess , Tormenting Voice , Arch of Orazca , Runehorn Hellkite , Conqueror's Galleon  Flip, Kraum, Ludevic's Opus , Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist , Commune with Lava .

Thank you for the list it's helped me out a lot with my list for Mimeo that I am building. Just out of curiosity why are you running Nezahal, Primal Tide and not Consecrated Sphinx ? In my play testing so far opponents have stopped playing non creature spells when Nezahal came out and I have got way more cards draw from the Sphinx even when he is killed the turn after I got him out.

It depends on what you're trying to achieve. I've taken most of the tutors out ( Planar Portal and Planar Bridge fit the theme), and am trying to eliminate any infinite combos. Some cards like Lux Cannon are in for flavor, since every mad scientist needs a ray gun...

If you want max power I think you use Mox Opal and Grim Monolith for faster starts as well. Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur fits a purely cutthroat meta (it's too oppressive otherwise).

The five cards in my maybe board will be replacing Brainstorm , Basilisk Collar , Rings of Brighthearth , Clock of Omens , and Unsubstantiate . Endbringer is also too mana intensive and Urza needs a mount, so Nezahal, Primal Tide will replace it. Hope that helps.
