Ali Plays Historic Niv-Mizzet Reborn


Welcome back everyone! Today we play Niv-Mizzet Reborn in Historic. The deck suffered a lot when it lost Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath and I wanted to see how it would fair without our Simic overlord. So, we today we gave it a whirl!

Let us go ahead and look at the decklist!

Time Stamps:

01:58 - Match 1

14:42 - Match 2

29:54 - Match 3

58:11 - Match 4

Yorion and Niv-Mizzet Reborn piles are normally grindy and have a ton of card advantage built in. This list is not any different. We have our staples in Growth Spiral, Explore, Oath of Kaya, and Deafening Clarion. The rest you can pick whatever you think is best for the metagame. The most impressive card that I played in this list was Cut // Ribbons. Ribbons is an excellent finisher for a deck that normally just durdles; it can close a game out of nowhere. The least impressive card for me was Lotus Cobra. The card just does not do much and I would rather have anything else. Probably another Growth Spiral and some Knight of Autumns. I also was not impressed with Solar Blaze and Justice Strike. Both those cards can miss a lot depending on the deck you are playing against. The list overall is strong, and you can tune it to better suite your needs. It is also fun!

That's it for today, thanks for reading/watching!
