+1. I've always wanted to build Niv-Mizzet Reborn and your list here has inspired me. It looks like a lot of fun to play. Do you have any further updates to your list (apart from Rokiric)? Also curious about your general thoughts with blink strategies here? Cheers!

WUBRG Walker? Well Niv-Mizzet Reborn just got his spark

Niv, The Enlightened

Whenever you cast a multicolored spell, draw a card

+1 Create a 2/2 Illusion creature token that is all colors

-2 Return target Multicolored spell from your graveyard to your hand

-7 You get an Emblem with “multicolored spells you control can’t be countered, and multicolored permanents you control have hexproof”


Doesn’t have abilities of all 5 colors but builds off of his previous iterations, kind of like how they did Omnath.

Speaking of Omnath, make a 5 color version. He can be a planeswalker or even an enchantment (like he’s so powerful you can’t kill him with damage but he still has effects on the land) if you want.

What does he care more about for this deck? That it can run 4-5 colours? Or for it to be Egyptian and Zombie themed?

If the latter matters more, he might like The Scarab God , though it's only two colours. There are some others from Amonkhet or Hour of Devastation that might interest him as well, most of the commanders are only one or two colours though.

4-5 colour commanders, none specifically revolve around Zombies, nor do any have an Egyptian aesthetic, but you could still get creative with the options that are there.

Morophon, the Boundless - popular for a lot of tribes, but kind of lackluster for Zombies IMHO which have a lot more better options, albeit with fewer colours.

Niv-Mizzet Reborn could be interesting, when built right he can provide some serious card draw, which could be a free graveyard dump if you get enough extra cards in hand to discard. Zombies are all about reanimation, so you could get clever with that. Zombies will mostly be in black, blue, and red, you could find use with green and white with other cards.

Similarly, Tazri, Beacon of Unity could be fun to build around. There are many Zombies that are also Warriors, Clerics, and Wizards. Not so many Rogues and Ally, but there's one of each that makes Zombie tokens at least. You could always add support to your board with non-Zombies that are Allies and Rogues.

Esika, God of the Tree  Flip could be another interesting option if you went with an all legendary Zombie theme (of which there are many).

Zombies appear in white the least, so Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder might be the best four colour to go with. There's enough zombies that have ETBs that they could be pretty fun with Yidris.

Best of luck to you!

Hey fellow sky swarmer,

I feel it is necessary for you to upgrade your dragon arsenal. Some of your dragons are pretty weak (Immirsturn and Steel Hellkite ). Also, no need for Esika, God of the Tree  Flip and probably no need for Niv-Mizzet Reborn . It’s cool to play them, but they don’t help your strategy.

You should be focusing on creating value by ramping as much as possible, then playing sky swellers AKA dragons, hopefully doubling up on permanents in the process. Consider Traverse the Outlands as a major improvement, or even something big like Boundless Realms . If nothing else you can always cast your commander.

Dragon's Hoard < Commander's Sphere . No doubt about that.

I’d drop that irrelevant Aurelia instant spell for a Boros Charm to protect your investments or maybe give doublestrike.

Awesome! Baleful Strix is an oldie and a goodie, it acts like a psychological wall that no one really wants to attack into! It's a fine line with Niv-Mizzet Reborn and multicolor things, don't let it discourage you TOO much from running solid mono color cards. Drawing the needed cards consistently is just as good as drawing ALL the cards!

Good luck finding your fairytale happy ending (of your opponents)! XD
