Modern Horizons / Core 2020, Episode 10: Niv-Mizzet Deep Dive

It’s a Hogaak summer, it is what it is, but Niv’s a 5-star dragon and we know he’s got it lit. Dan and Damon spread their wings over Minneapolis last weekend with a new build of Rainbow Niv-Mizzet. The deck is sweet, but can you really cash a Grand Prix with a Faithless Brew? Yes, yes you can! Damon notched a 9-4-2 finish in the main event, and the deck is poised to get even better in the post-Hogaak metagame.

This week the crew breaks down everything Niv-Mizzet: our testing process, manabase considerations, sideboarding and matchup analysis, and recommendations for the build going forward. You won’t want to miss this one!
