What os unique with both styles of play is that we get to - reload with niv mizzet. Getting a 6/6 and 2 to 4 cards on averadge is quite good. We can also loop it with kolegans command, or glittering wish (in some builds.) Also, the bring to light for silver bullit seems quite good. (Unmoore Ego, Supreme Verdict, Kholigans Command and Primal command mostly.)
Have anybody done any thought to ditching some of the colours. Izzet in particular seems a bit weak.
I am planing on experementing with going midrange. Cut the number of nivs down to 2, keep the 4 bring to light.
Any deck that can play the following cards in the same deck sounds good:
- Nahiri, the Harbinger
- Lightning Helix
- Deafening Clarion
- Assassin's Trophy
- Maelstrom Pulse
- Kolaghan's command
- Kaya's Guile
- Supreme Verdict
Good Tempor Card/Anoying:
(One possible route is to leave Bring to Light behind and get Niv-Mizzet with Neoform. I do not think this is a good way to go as we would have very few 4 drop in the deck and relly on a '2 card combo'. The list would probably look more like old Birthing Pod lists. As well as Neoform being bad of BBE if you have no other creatures.)
I am sure a very compettetive midrange or controll deck is in there somewhere. Now most GBx decks runs 6 discard spells, so that is probably a good place to start. I am a bit unsure about Tidehollow Sculler. He is usualy best in a deck where you 'trade' cards vs their awnsers until you are left standing. It is like a spellskite for removalspells, and usualy soaked up the removal that was meant for your Dark Confidant. Obvously nothing like that is happening here.
I would like to see some more good creatures outside of BBE and Voice of Resurgence. I am not sure if Voice should be in our list, but in most midrange decks I play it in, it is very good. He and Teferi should give any instant speed deck a run for their money. Can you also imagine going BBE into Teferi. That just sounds sick.
The Boros lifegain cards are quite good. Nahiri is also a real threath once she can get Niv-Mizzet. In fact, the multi coloured removal suite from all the colours is just insane.
Midrange decks die to tron. But Assassin's Throphy into Unmore Ego (or bring to light) can help with that.
I will think about this and try to come up with a good build. Preferably without izzet in the maindeck. Sugestions for more good 'midrange' creatures are welcome.
So I sat down and tinkered around a bit. Suggestions on lands is welcome, but how about this:
