Niv-Mizzet Reborn

Legendary Creature — Dragon Avatar


When Niv-Mizzet Reborn enters the battlefield, reveal the top ten cards of your library. For each color pair, choose a card that's exactly those colors from among them. Put the chosen cards into your hand and the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

Jeskai Charm is not exactly two colors, so you can never put it in your hand from Niv-Mizzet Reborn . I'm not sure what two green cards you had or what you mean by "made it alright", but with the effect you get to put up to one revealed card each that is exactly WU, WB, UB, UR, BR, BG, RG, RW, GW, GU. If they have any more or less colors than two they can not be put into your hand, if you reveal more than one card with exactly the same two colors you pick one to put into your hand.

Emrakul's Influence specifies "Eldrazi creature card". All Is Dust is an Eldrazi card, but is not a creature card. So it will not trigger Emrakul's Influence .

For the first question, Niv-Mizzet Reborn 's ability lets you keep one card for each color pair, but it must be exactly that color pair. So Rakdos Charm should work, but Jeskai Charm is three colors and therefore not a valid choice. And if you reveal both Rakdos Charm and Rakdos Firewheeler , for example, then you can only keep one of them.

I don't know which two green cards you were fetching that were fine.

The basic idea behind Niv-Mizzet's ability is that if you're supremely lucky, you will reveal exactly one card that represents each guild on Ravnica (so if your reveal hits one of each guild charm, then you can keep them all, because they are each exactly two colors, and there is exactly one for each color pair).

Regarding your second question, Emrakul's Influence has a triggered ability, not an activated ability (it's an important distinction). In order for it to trigger, you must cast an Eldrazi creature spell. While All Is Dust is Eldrazi Tribal and thus has a creature type, it is not a creature spell (it needs "Creature" on the type line to qualify).

Well, Funkydiscogod Niv-Mizzet Reborn is the new guildpact (though it would have been cool imo if it was Lavinia, Azorius Renegade ), so it's unlikely that Jace would have the authority to make the guilds stop scrapping- though he may have the strength to.

First off, DemonDragonJ, I would kill for a Nimbus Maze cycle on Ravnica. It would capture the guilds' flavor flawlessly and they would make draft really interesting, I think.

I feel like the first set of any returning-plane block after an event like War of the Spark is just going to be a reintroduction. Best example I can give you is Tarkir block, where the only actual "story" set was Fate Reforged. Khans was an introduction to Khans, Dragons was an introduction to Dragons.

I would make the first set a basic reintroduction set, and then set 2 would be called something to the extent of Ravnica: Rise of the Gateless. I'd introduce a legendary creature to be the charismatic and semi-noble leader of the Gateless- probably identified as Mardu, but I'm mostly spitballing.

I don't really understand morophon being here except for 5 colors and the +1/+1 ability. Golos, Tireless Pilgrim , or Niv-Mizzet Reborn may be better, cheaper picks for 5 color. None of your myr really cost color, so Morophon's second ability is useless here. If you really like Morophon, why not try a changeling tribal deck?

Power level is the reason why I decided to run those creature stealing effects along with a couple of other beatsticks like Bontu the Glorified and Ob Nixilis, Unshackled . None of those cards are dedicated to combo'ing out and are there to interact with the rest of the board.

The place I plan on playing at had people running stuff like Nicol Bolas, the Ravager  Flip and Niv-Mizzet Reborn . There was also one guy who said he wanted to build a Tolsimir, Friend to Wolves deck. I don't really know how powerful and competitive these commanders are, but regardless, how do you think the deck looks as of now? TappedOut says it's basically half and half between being competitive and casual, but I have no idea how it determines that and if it's reliable.

(CAUTION: A Huge List of CMDRS dead ahead. If you can't comply, remember that I apologized for the huge wall.)

Well, I was just told how to do a Folder, but to choose what for decks is another thing entirely. Especially if such decks are either:

A: What Everyone Plays B: Are good, but have since been outdated by a year C: Are Tribal Leaders in a Specific Sense (No Morophon, the Boundless please.) D: Not Underdog CMDRs. E: Other.

Let's Just assume we use that cEDH Deck Tier List One-by-One; but w/ a new rule for Playtesting such decks so none of the cEDH Decks win out of overall ratios ~100% of the time; CHANNELFIREBALL-style. That said, From using the Tier List, I require the following CMDR Decks to not have cEDH Level Power, but are these:

Tier 0:

Thrasios, Triton Hero & Tymna the Weaver Partners

Tier 1:

Kess, Dissident Mage

Kraum, Ludevic's Opus

Najeela, the Blade-Blossom

The First Sliver (Not as a Sliver Tribe Leader)

The Gitrog Monster

Urza, Lord High Artificer

Vial Smasher the Fierce

Yisan, the Wanderer Bard

Zur the Enchanter

(NOTE: Unknown if Kraum, Ludevic's Opus & Vial Smasher the Fierce need to be Parters to be of this level.)

Tier 2:

Animar, Soul of Elements (Morph Decks not allowed.)

Baral, Chief of Compliance (Get your Counterspells Ready!)

Brago, King Eternal

Breya, Etherium Shaper

Circu, Dimir Lobotomist

Derevi, Empyrial Tactician

Edric, Spymaster of Trest

General Tazri (Mandatory Ally Tribe Leader)

Ghave, Guru of Spores

God-Eternal Kefnet

Godo, Bandit Warlord

Golos, Tireless Pilgrim

Grand Arbiter Augustin IV

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip

Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge

Jhoira, Weatherlight Captain

Kykar, Wind's Fury

Meren of Clan Nel Toth

Mizzix of the Izmagnus

Momir Vig, Simic Visionary

Narset, Enlightened Master

Niv-Mizzet, Parun

Niv-Mizzet Reborn

Oona, Queen of the Fae

Prime Speaker Vannifar

Prossh, Skyraider of Kher

Ramos, Dragon Engine

Rashmi, Eternities Crafter

Scion of the Ur-Dragon (Possible Dragon Tribe Leader)

Selvala, Heart of the Wilds

Sidisi, Brood Tyrant

Sidisi, Undead Vizier

Sisay, Weatherlight Captain

Taigam, Ojutai Master

Tana, the Bloodsower

Tasigur, the Golden Fang

Teferi, Temporal Archmage

The Mimeoplasm

Varolz, the Scar-Striped

Xantcha, Sleeper Agent

Yarok, the Desecrated

Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder

Tier 3: WIP

But, yeah, you get the picture, right? Since I can't find such decks on my own to put in such a folder for decks worth testing against your own. Rules are as follows though:

  1. It needs to be up to date, prior to the Iona, Shield of Emeria & Paradox Engine bans & Painter's Servant unbanning/CMDR 2019's release; or just not include any of those at all.

  2. Each deck must not be of cEDH-level power; just imagine how much hell I'd have to playthrough against something just to beat a Thrasios/Tymna Partners deck just to have my claim on this notion nullified.

  3. Decks must include CMDRs that are Popular, were Popular as well as Tribal Decks w/ Good Tribe Leaders (For example: The First Sliver & Sliver Queen do not fit this category where Sliver Overlord does fit the Sliver Tribe Leadership. Scion of the Ur-Dragon & The Ur-Dragon can both count as Dragon Tribe CMDRs. Atraxa, Praetors' Voice is actually a bad CMDR to use in Superfriends, but Shines in all Counter Life. Make good use of that instead of making a 4< Color Walkers Deck. The rulings go on...)

I know this is too much for now, but I'm making a folder for Playtesting w/ decks as everyone kept telling me to do so; now I want to hold my end of the Bargain. But I seriously need help from you to do this. If you can find any decks here to add to such a Folder, put it on the comments below.

(& no, It's not like it's a personal thing! Anyone is allowed to use it when it's finished!)
