Knowledge and Power: Niv-Mizzet's Mania

Commander / EDH UR (Izzet)


Knowledge is power, and power is power. No one knows this more than Niv-Mizzet, the leader of the Izzet guild. This deck is centred completely around gaining knowledge and keeping power, at any means necessary. Even if it means a descent into madness.

The primary goal is to draw cards, and then hit people in the face with damage because I do so: either with Knowledge and Power, or with the Firemind himself. Enigma Drake, Goblin Electromancer, Guttersnipe, Runaway Steamkin and Charmbreaker Devils are my greatest assets regarding my spells. My spells power them up, are their tool or my creatures help them to become cheaper. Jaya Ballard also assists with my instant and sorcery spells, providing mana. Murmuring Mystic will make Bird Illusions with every instant and sorcery spells I cast. Jori En, one of my favourite characters in the MTG lore, helps me with extra card draw and give Niv-Mizzet another excuse to breathe fire into someone's face. With every second card I draw, my Faerie Vandals grow stronger and I gain fairies from Improbable Alliance.

This is the first deck I built that I built on a whim with no planning. Its theme is spellslinging mania. Niv-Mizzet's mania. I hope you like it nonetheless! Please leave any suggestions. I would highly appreciate it.
