dritchie on My take on Mizzix

1 month ago

Id remove Dragon Mage its very expensive as is charm breaker devils and Mercurial Chemister for things like Bribery , Act of Aggression , Word of Seizing and Insurrection . Mizzix's Mastery is a must, definitely remove Walk the Aeons because at sacrificing three lands that puts you at a major disadvantage try going for Beacon of Tomorrows they are what id definitely recommend at the very east just to give it a bit more of a competitive feel

Optimator on Giant's Deck

Even though you are primarily Giant-Tribal, you may still want to have a small suite of "Brion" cards.

I have a Feldon of the Third Path and Mimic Vat, both of which are extremely good in Brion decks. I also have a Adarkar Valkyrie, which can be good too.

Gift of Immortality is extremely good with Brion. I don't have one though.

Sigil of the New Dawn isn't the most efficient, but can be good.

I have a Serra Avatar too, which is the best Fling-able creature around. Evra, Halcyon Witness is great too, but I don't have one. It's cheap though. A Stalking Vengeance would double up Brion's damage, but I don't think I have one either. Reya Dawnbringer is way mana-expensive but can be useful with such pricey giants dying left and right.

Flameshadow Conjuring can be good with Brion too. I don't think I have one though.

Phyrexian Processor is one of the craziest pieces of Brion tech around. It's not too expensive--I would totally slide this card in, even if I was doing Giant Tribal. You can get blown out, but the payoff is enormous.

Another piece of Brion tech is Grafted Exoskeleton, if you wanna be dirty.


Since Brion isn't the center of the strategy, protecting him isn't at such a premium. Cards like Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves are still good for protecting your big giants though. It may be worth sliding some cards like that in, but since it's a casual deck you may get away with none.

That said, I have Whispersilk Cloak and Mask of Avacyn in my collection.

Another option on a budget is Mirror Shield. Darksteel Plate is pricey but fantastic when you want to stick a huge beater and keep it around.

I have a Cradle of Vitality on-hand. Might be really good!


If you have any more Threaten-effects, those are functionally creature removal with your commander out. Perhaps a couple of cards like that deserve a slot. Captivating Crew is fun because it's repeatable. Song-Mad Treachery  Flip is cool because it's a land too!

I own: Hijack - Grab the Reins - Mass Mutiny - Traitorous Blood - Traitorous Instinct - Portent of Betrayal - Word of Seizing - Harness by Force

There are many more.


Illusionist's Bracers is very good with Brion, even with less of a focus on him. Probably worth keeping in.

I think Minion Reflector won't be good--too expensive. Seance is decent but probably won't be reliable often enough to make it worth a slot.

Hey,Sully13! I love this deck! Ink-Treader Nephilim is a crazy general, like a Zada on steroids. Here are some recommendations:

Willbreaker: Yoink!

Word of Seizing: Do you want an uncounterable, instant-speed Insurrection? Of course you do!

Pongify, Crib Swap, Beast Within, and friends: While Ink-Treader Nephilim makes all removal targeting it a board wipe, we want creatures on the board to get that crazy value, so these give everyone some dinky monkeys or lizards to draw 20 cards off of with a Stun after a board wipe!

Verdant Confluence: Get all those pesky lands out of your deck, cards out of your graveyard, and permanently pump up your army! Choose the counter mode once, and the land or recursion mode once or twice, depending on how much you need them. Plus the art is amazing.

Splicer's Skill: For just 5-7 mana, create an exponentially growing army! Splice this doozy of a card onto one of your cantrips, and create a golem for each creature on the battlefield.

Hope this helps, and happy tapping!

I'm loving the Ant. It puts a lot of pressure on the other players in the same way the "Tempt" spells do. It often has the effect of everyone feels like they need to utilise the counters if anyone else does. If players are slamming down strong creatures then this just makes them stronger and more comfortable with attacking.

Its in my deck's game plan to deal with massive creatures (Backlash, Deflecting Palm, Word of Seizing, as well as the number of fogs I run) but that is less likely to be the case with my opponents' decks. I think even if the creature wasn't goaded it still would discourage attacks as who wants to trade their beefy monster for a Vampire of the Dire Moon or Gifted Aetherborn?

cheeseycrackers Word of Seizing isn't fetch able by Sunforger but its still an absolute powerhouse. I've never really had an issues with Price of Progress potentially killing me. Even if it is very late in the game, you may have like 8 non basic lands out? That's only 16 damage which you should be able to weather. Often you want only cast it if you can win the game through additional affects such as Reverberate and Wound Reflection as you mentioned. I can't think of a single game where I couldn't cast Price of Progress because it would kill me. And I've player this decks over a hundred times.
