Niv-Mizzet, Parun

Legendary Creature — Dragon Wizard

This spell can't be countered.


Whenever you draw a card, Niv-Mizzet, Parun deals 1 damage to any target (creature, player or planeswalker).

Whenever a player casts an instant or sorcery spell, you draw a card.

Great suggestions thank you for the comments.

I honestly forgot about Teferi's Puzzle Box and I didn't even think about Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator but that's a great combo.

I first wanted to keep out Ophidian Eye and Curiosity because I was worried they draw my deck dead with Nekusar, the Mindrazer and having them just for Niv-Mizzet, Parun seemed not really worth taking a card slot for me, since I have no way of getting him consistent on the battlefield. I also didn't realize here that Glint-Horn Buccaneer actually kills everybody in the discard step at the end of the turn with enough cards in my hand.

And Glint-Horn Buccaneer goes infinite with Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator or Curiosity/Ophidian Eye if that is something you want to do. Curiosity/Ophidian Eye also goes infinite With Niv-Mizzet, Parun.

so the first thing i think you should do is add some ritual spells like Dark Ritual and Jeska's Will dark ritual will give you 4 black mana for free and jeskas will will give you an 20 cards you can cast from exile and a whole ton of mana,tutors will also give you card advantage when you really need it, one of my personal favorites thats more budget is Grim Tutor, but if you want to break the bank or use proxies (ew) Demonic Tutor is your best bet. as far as lands go, Grixis Panorama is a really stellar card in tandem with cards like Smoldering Marsh because its a mountian and a swamp, you can search for that when you crack the panorama, other examples include but are not limited to, Sunken Hollow Watery Grave Blood Crypt Steam Vents and the original true dual lands, which are too expensive to really even mention. i would personally trade out Dogged Pursuit for something like Exquisite Blood and also consider putting in some boardwipes like Toxic Deluge and alternate wincons such as Exsanguinate take the Ancient Carp out of the deck too, it has no flavor text and dosent contribute anything for the 5 mana youre paying for it. Aetherflux Reservoir is a great card in any storm deck, because youre gonna gain an incredible amount of life with all the spells youre casting. make sure you put more counterspells in, such as Counterspell and if you want something really fun, try Counterbalance, its one of my personal favorite cards and i run it in almost all my blue decks. Take out Dwindle for something like Imprisoned in the Moon and you can cast it on someones commander and they can no longer play their commander as it is now a land :) take out the Falthis, Shadowcat Familiar and replace it with something like a Niv-Mizzet, Parun for some more card draw and board threats, and make sure that at the end of the game your having fun my dude, at the end of the day winning is important but having fun is even more important. Welcome to EDH!

nhhale on Interaction between Body of Knowledge …

If Niv-Mizzet, Parun pings Body of Knowledge for 1 damage, you may draw a card which in activates Niv-Mizzet's ability again, allowing you to draw cards as many times as you ping Body of Knowledge for damage. However, Body of Knowledges' toughness depends on the number of cards in your hand. So the question is: When Body of Knowledges' toughness increases by 1 from taking damage from Niv-Mizzet and drawing a card, does this also increase the amount of damage needed to destroy it by 1? In other words, can this combo be used to draw as many cards cards as I want?

You can use double brackets like this:

[[Niv-Mizzet, Parun]]

To link to cards so everyone knows what you're talking about. For example: Niv-Mizzet, Parun, Body of Knowledge.

I have replaced Dominus of Fealty and Niv-Mizzet, Parun with Wandering Mind and Oggyar Battle-Seer, which reduced the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.87 to 3.82, because, as awesome as those creatures were, their mana costs were too color-intensive for a three-colored deck, so I have greatly reduced the number of colored mana symbols in this deck.

Jubilant Sprite

Creature - Faerie


When Jubiltant Sprite deals combat damage to a player, exile the top card of your library. You may play it this turn.


I'd like to see another card with a trigger and some ability which helps it, like the evasion enables the damage to player payoff (saboteur effect), but not something which directly causes it, like Niv-Mizzet, Parun, or the other Niv-Mizzets for that matter.
