I love the ability on this card. I love the fact
that you could do large amounts of damage while
benefiting your own game plan with cards. I love
the strategies this card brings. This is all
brought down though, because I absolutely hate
the cost. I'd rather have a Meloku or Keiga for
that same cost.
Yowsa. Again, weird color combo, but we'll have
to see if the rest of the set and block support
it well. Niv's ability is really...REALLY good,
especially with Blue and all the draw it offers.
Of course, Niv is very expensive, but if a
format finds a way to sneak or muscle him out,
it would be devastating.
Definitely a fun casual card. Your friends will
If you can support the color cost, definitely
play Niv, and throw some card draw in. =)
Constructed - 3
Casual - 4
Limited - 4.5
to spoil the flavor text of Niv-Mizzet for you.
The text is “(Z–>)90║ – (E–N▓W)90║t = 1”.
Turn that on it's side...
and it spells something that should have been
obvious to begin with.
Anyway, aside from the creative flavor text
(how's that going to translate into other
languages, anyway? Especially ones without Roman
alphabets?), Niv-Mizzet is a house. Any blue
deck worth it's salt is packing a certain number
of card draw effects. In recent times these
often take the form of Thirst for Knowledge type
effects that draw and then discard. Niv likes
those just fine. Now matter how many cards
you're discarding, you still get to do damage
for all those you drew. Expect this to be a
first pick beyond any other consideration in
Guildpact drafting. The casting cost is very
reasonable and even when you're not playing
weird drawing tricks with him, he's still a 4/4
flyer. Good dragon.
