Nivmagus builds by Uvatha at Thu, 05/23/2013 - 14:06

Great show as always! Just a quick word on the Nivmagus builds. I can't of course speak for the Vintage guy but very very often I do not play the deck as a combo deck. When you play Oath, combo, Helmline or other blue decks that don't rely on many creatures to win you just nible away on them with your small Nivmagus/Delver/Snapcaster and play your draw-go with just one threat on the board. The Nivmagus only grows when you draw dead cards against them or when you lose (part of) a counter war. With the 4 Gush, Brainstorms and Snapcasters you often have the fuel to keep your hand full of counters. In the endgame you can try to combo out to end the game a turn of two earlier but I only do it if they have significantly fewer cards/options than me.

When playing Shops you focus on keeping them off spheres but if a Lodestone slips through your flipped delvers or a Nivmagus that have eaten one spell can trade with them. A Nivmagus that have eaten two spells (maybe 1 CMC spells cast even if there's a Chalice set for 1) can play defense all day long until you get a flipped Delver online.

I play the combo game against Affinity game one and pray that the Stony Silence and Steel Sabotage will save me game 2-3. A medium/big Nivmagus can put them on the defense if you can keep them off Genesis Chamber and you have a Stony Silence online. The Rest in Peace stop their Arcbound Ravagers and Skullclamps but you have to watch out not to side out to many cards that will give you no way to finish the game. Disruption alone cant win you the game

Dedicated creature games are tough and you need to consider if and when to go combo. Usually you need to grow your Nivmagus a little so they cant have any favorable attacks while you try to play the Delver game with counter backup.

I won 3 matches in Ham on Wry II and lost 4 - mainly due to being rusty and not having a fine tuned deck due to the lack of games in the tournament practice room. But I had a blast playing it! It is surprisingly fun to play and involves so much decision making and you see a ton of cards during the games.
