Just something quick. You might want to add Curiosity and/or Ophidian Eye to the deck, they go infinite with Niv-Mizzet, Parun, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, and Brallin, Skyshark Rider  Flip. A great way to close out the game, and if you're looking to stay casual, you don't have to add any tutors.

Playing against a Group Hug Xyris, the Writhing Storm deck is always funny. Hey you like card draw? Im gonna make you hate it! My friends Xyris deck had us drawing 6 cards every turn it was nuts. It made all our card draw cards become dead cards in our deck.

For me my favorite deck for a goofy fun play is my Yasova Dragonclaw clone deck. It's filled with copy cards. So the whole game im copying everyone elses cards and blending their strategies together into this giant blob and humor. For instance in a match with this deck against that Xyris deck our other friend was playing Niv-Mizzet, Parun and I stole both commanders and it got out of hand fast.

Wow, great work MagicalHacker. Reformatted with card links and averages (rounded up) of the range of decks the combos are in. I figure a single number for each 2 card combo makes it easker to tally up and figure percentages later. So 120,411 two-card combos total.

I would suggest adding the following cards.

x3-4Saheeli, Sublime Artificer Very strong diversion mid-game, can carry x2Jace, Wielder of Mysteries A win-con x3-4Invade the City Really good decks made of all spells

Maybeboard Gadwick, the Wizened God-Eternal Kefnet Commence the Endgame Opt Niv-Mizzet, Parun Mission Briefing Callous Dismissal

I made a deck for my friend who played it competitivly a few rotations ago, I constantly tweaked it through playtesting and ended up with this:Books Kill

It was a very strong home run type deck that worked more often than not. It is not "budget", but with some tweaks you could make it a bit cheaper.

Hey Daed!

List looks really refined, not exactly sure what I would cut for Unsubstantiate!

Looking at it I'm kinda thinking Rielle, the Everwise since Vadrok can't mutate onto her and seems really niche. Underworld Breach is also a possibility in my mind. To me it makes more sense to try and keep as much stuff in the grave as possibly for Vadrok, but I can also see how it could be extremely useful. I'm really grasping at straws here though, I have no idea.

These are really just pet cards of mine, but I could see them being effective here: Ral, Storm Conduit and Niv-Mizzet, Parun. These seem like they could be fun and a good payoff for Thousand-Year copying in the case of Ral and all the card draw in the case of Niv. Your deck already runs cards that are probably better, so I completely understand if you don't want to run them.

Anyway, just my 2 cents. Wasn't really sure what to say because the deck was so good already!

eggypingu Thanks for the comment! I had found that World at War wasn't as ultimate in this deck as I thought it would be at first, so I've now replaced it with Niv-Mizzet, Parun. I also just replaced one of the single-draw instants with Skullclamp, and between those two additions I have seriously upgraded the draw power!

I'll keep your other two suggestions in mind. If I find that I have a lot of land cards in hand often, I'll totally put Flame Jab in there. It's a card that works at its best when you have infinite draw combos, which I don't try to do. But yes, it definitely might work for me anyway. Cheers!

Hey Epicurus! I love spell slinging decks! I am currently running a Niv-Mizzet, Parun pingers deck and I've found he really generates the necessary card draw to keep going in this kind of archetype. Thousand-Year Storm works great for me, and even when it doesn't, it clears some hate from opponents' hands! Also, Flame Jab is an absolute powerhouse! Needing an extra land in hand to discard is a small price to pay to just keep pinging! I must admit I do enjoying going infinite though, so feel free to take these suggestions with a pinch of salt!
