Niv-Mizzet, Parun occurrence in decks from the last year

Niv-Mizzet, Parun Discussion

So, first, you need 100 cards for it to be playable, you have 92. (And you have 8 Reliquary Tower, 2 Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind and 30 Command Tower. You can only have 1 of each of those.)

Second, I would pick a different commander. You actually already have quite a few better commanders in the main deck, so (assuming you are playing in paper) that makes things convenient. The two best options are Rielle, the Everwise and Niv-Mizzet, Parun.

Lastly, in Commander, often times, you want your deck to synergize with your commander and focus on that. So, even though the creatures in your deck may be alright as stand alones, you'd be better off replacing them with more cards like Windfall (that do mass discarding of your hand) if you plan on playing Rielle, the Everwise or more cards like Sigil of Sleep and Curiosity (cards that reward you for doing damage) if you plan on playing Niv-Mizzet, Parun.

(Also, I'd generally try to get rid of the cards that "tap target creature, it doesn't untap during their next untap phase" cards. In 4 player games, it's not only not effective, but makes that person want to attack you. I'd recommend more counterspells, draw, and Lightning Bolts instead.)

Hello, I have a Niv-Mizzet, Parun deck, and it naturally uses a lot of the same buffs as this deck, so I have a few suggestions, namely: Charisma, andSigil of Sleep. The value of these should be obvious, but I rarely see them included in decks like this. The only problem is Charisma and the deathtouch equipment kind of get in each-other's way, but I think it's worth it to just play with which-ever one you draw first and include it anyway. Other than that, this deck looks really solid! Definitely a +1 from me. :]

Gakros on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

there way too many viable win conditions on cEDH.
Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal and in general infinite mana with commanders like Kenrith, the Returned King and Thrasios, Triton Hero.
There are like 8 different Protean Hulk piles.
There are like 2 different Razaketh, the Foulblooded piles.
Food Chain has more than 5-6 viable commanders that can consistently win turn 3-4.
Underworld Breach is the new kid on the block with 2-4 piles himself.
Worldgorger Dragon in rakdos.
and then there are really cool and weird commander specific wins.
examples: Selvala, Heart of the Wilds,Elsha of the Infinite,Najeela, the Blade-Blossom,Animar, Soul of Elements,Godo, Bandit Warlord,Niv-Mizzet, Parun and many many many more.

Sure Consultation Oracle needs 3 mana to win and currently is the fastest but there are a lot of tier 1 decks winning turn 3-4 without it.

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain is probably my favorite budget build. Spamming artifacts to win with Jace, Wielder of Mysteries-type effects is great, and you can always win with Niv-Mizzet, Parun.

BTW, I’d be happy to make some rough decklists for you, if there’s any commanders you’d like to see whether something works. Just give me a commander and, if you’d like, a path you’d like me to go. I wouldn’t advise taking my lists as I build them, I often end up light on draw, removal, or ramp, but I tend to find fun cards, and with a little manipulation, my lists can generally be turned into well-functioning decks.

No problem! I feel your pain when up against a Niv-Mizzet, Parun combo deck. I had to learn how to shut it down long ago and those have always been some ace in the holes for me. I hope you can have the same success.

rkjunior, Mox Diamond would be the best choice. Also, I’m actually thinking about adding Strip Mine, finally, since I removed both Armageddon and Ravages of War. I still want some way to remove lands. I personally like Ashaya, Soul of the Wild, but it is a flex card for me and can be replaced with something better down the road. So I feel you’ll be fine without it.

Arzais, I too have a Niv-Mizzet, Parun deck I face regularly. Things I would consider to add to help would be Drannith Magistrate, Shalai, Voice of Plenty, Narset, Parter of Veils, Oko, Thief of Crowns, Teferi, Time Raveler, Teferi, Master of Time, Kenrith's Transformation and Darksteel Mutation. I’ve had huge success in shutting down Niv with such cards in the past. Hopefully you find it helpful.
