Ali Plays Lier and Niv


Welcome back everyone! Today we revisit one of my favorite decks in Historic, Niv-Mizzet Reborn! After taking the deck to a first-place finish in the Coolstuff Stream League Six tournament (you can find the entire run on my personal youtube: Here) I decided to update the deck to the current Historic format and see how good Niv still was!

Let us go ahead and look at the decklist!

Time Stamps:

04:39 - Match 1

13:16 - Match 2

28:13 - Match 3

41:43 - Match 4

I played this deck on stream to an excellent win rate. Overall, the new version hovered around a 70-80% win rate. I would take this deck to any Historic Tournament. The biggest thing about Niv-Reborn is that it is almost always a viable deck but you just have to figure out what cards to run for the metagame. With the sudden popularity of artifact and enchantment decks I am a huge fan of Prismari and Kolaghan's Command against artifacts and even running two Cleansing Novas for the Sideboard to just instantly win against Nine Lives Enchantment.dek. If you like five color control or just a value midrange deck. I would recommend this one!

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