Whenever a player taps a land for mana, that player adds one mana to his or her mana pool of any type that land produced, and Overabundance deals 1 damage to him or her.

wolfhead, No problem! Its not something most people pick up on immediately. I sometimes even have to explain that a 'noncreature' source extends to things beyond instants and sorceries. It pretty much works wonders on stuff like Overabundance , Manabarbs , and so much more.
Anyway, hope you enjoy Tamanoa even more now :)

I am not fond of aeon engine, because reversing turn order is not a very useful effect, and can be abused to prevent a player from taking a turn; such effects should have been kept in un-sets, in my mind.
However, that new version of Chainer is quire awesome; is he the fourth character from the Weatherlight saga to be given a new card? I hope not, since he lived long after that story was over. The fact that the creatures that he reanimates do not become nightmares is a flavor fail, unfortunately. I now wonder if there shall be a new version of Braids in the future, or perhaps a card of Chainer’s mentor, Skellum?
Bloodthirsty blade is a very unique and interesting design, and does anyone here think that that is Gerrard in the artwork, when he and Urza were forced to fight each other?
The reprint of Geth is nice, since he has become expensive, recently.
That new demon is quite awesome, as it is essentially a second Phyrexian Obliterator for this format; its mana cost is rather high, but the fact that it has madness helps to balance that.
Skyfire phoenix is a very nice card, and I especially appreciate the artwork; does it remind anyone here of the Firebird segment of Disney’s Fantasia 2000?
Yes, there is a new version of Greven! I especially like how his artwork is a dark parallel to the artwork in the new version Gerrard, although I do not remember if the two of them ever fight (although I still am reading Prophecy, and have not yet reached the Invasion cycle in the novels).
That reprint of Soul Foundry is great; it was not terribly expensive, but it still was long overdue for a reprint, in my mind; since I started playing this game in 2003, when I was still in high school, I have many fond memories (and some not-so-fond) of that card.
The reprint of Pristine Angel is also nice, but I do wish that she had been given new art for it. I actually am surprised that WotC did not reprint Luminous Angel , because she would have been perfect for the populate deck.
Mire in misery is definitely a bend for black, but at least it does not outright destroy enchantments.

Ah, thanks, MizzMizz! To be honest, I forgot this deck wasn't still private; I was offering another user suggestions for his Thromak deck and opened it up so he could look through my list. Guess I should work on writing up a description, lol.
Doubling Season would be great in here, certainly; I was lucky enough to buy a playset when they were still new and inexpensive, so availability isn't an issue. The only reason I don't have it in here is that I already had a copy in my Ghave, Guru of Spores deck. Since both decks run on similar concepts, it would have been too easy to stuff the same cards in Thromak that I had in Ghave. I chose to avoid any overlap, and since having extra tokens seemed more important for this deck, I used Parallel Lives where I might have otherwise used Doubling Season. This reason is also why there's no Primal Vigor in here. I figure if I've enough dudes to devour when Thromak hits play, he'll be plenty big even without a counter doubler.
One of the goals of this deck is to cast Thromak for huge, attack, sac for profit, and cast again for even more; this requires some crazy mana, which is why I have Mana Flare , Overabundance and the like. Mana Echoes seems like it could be helpful, but have I got enough creatures that share types to maximise it's potential? I suppose Saprolings are probably the most prolific token type, but my creatures are all over the place. You referred to it as a land, though, rather than an enchantment; were you thinking of another card?

I am SO in love with this. Hardcore EDH players have a tendancy to make a "coin-flip chaos" deck though & just make a million flips until it is no longer chaos... So watch out for that. Some Max chaos cards: Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire , Etali, Primal Storm , Oath of Druids , Rampage of the Clans , Infernal Genesis , Endless Whispers (not a may ability) Uba Mask , Captive Audience , Thantis, the Warweaver , Overabundance , Hypergenesis , Painful Quandary , Ruric Thar, the Unbowed , The Great Aurora , Bolas's Citadel - if you don't try the topdeck nonsense... Several of these will achieve chaotic games in diverse ways: punish people for waiting to play, force them to play, force parity, or make random splash plays for your advantage. Of course, forcing unusual parity doesn't lend a hand to you winning, but that is not the point.

Heck. Yes. I have been deep diving into War of the Spark content all day, and then googled "niv mizzet superfriends" and believe it or not this list was on top. Was surprised it was even this niv mizzet as it's so new. Your deck is everything I wanted it to be, kudos.
Now I didn't go through your list with too much scrutiny, but I figure you definitely want some stuff to cheat cards into the battlefield from your hand, if you're going to have a hand jam packed with Planeswalkers it would be great to be able to play more than one or two a turn, are there some cards in your list that are doing that?
I guess a two color ramp spell (like Growth Spiral , but there must be better ones) might be nice? Although perhaps you are thinking that on a quasi budget 5 color manabase, just jam some rocks that you can cast easily and then accept the misses because once Miz is cranking you don't really need more ramp anyways. I still think growth spiral might be an include, and there's room to think about other two color ramp options, like Deathrite Shaman , Mirari's Wake , Overabundance , Thrasios, Triton Hero , or Zhur-Taa Ancient .
I have some other feedback if you are at all interested in feedback, haha. Let me know and I'll look on my laptop where it's easier and make some suggestions. Overall excellent idea and execution! Hope you put it together once the set comes out. I might end up with a similar one.

These kinds of decks are my favorite to scheme and I love your card choices!. I favor cards that "reward" opponents at a "cost" like Rite and Endless Whispers. I know it's hard to cut cards, but have you considered naughty little gems like Angel's Trumpet or Excavation ? I think I'm currently trying to build a Jund version around Overabundance and Spiteful Visions here: Hugs Not Drugs.
