    5. The stable -> level up
      1. Near the end of 2017 I fell in love with Niv Mizzet, Parun. I’ve always loved drawing cards and being able to do damage to others was something I totally loved. 
      2. I don’t claim to be great at building decks, but back then the way I built decks was way different than I do now. I didn’t exactly do slot theory and it was mostly just slam in good cards and hope for the best. 
      3. I was doing pretty well with it for a while, but as time went on and I added more cards just for the heck of it the deck got worse and kind of fell out of favor. 
      4. Near the end of 2019 I had been trying to make a draw-all-the-cards and take-all-the-turns type deck. At first I thought this would be a good strategy for Emry, but then realized, hey why not revisit Niv Mizz.
      5. The new theme for niv was Draw all the cards, take all the turns, and wheels.
      6. I have played five games with Niv since I have revamped and won all five. 
    6. Niv Mizz, the Parun
      1. 1 Dictate of Kruphix Didn't love the symmetrical nature
      2. 1 Experimental Frenzy Didn't love how it played
      3. 1 Merchant Scroll removing tutors
      4. 1 Firemind's Foresight Never really knew what to fetch
      5. 1 Palinchron slotted in thinking i'd do a combo, but never did
      6.  1 The Mirari Conjecture didn't love how it played
      7. 1 Venser, Shaper Savant didn't love how it played
    7.  Cards I took out and why:
      1. 1 Arcane Signet Mana Fixing
      2. 1 Dictate of the Twin Gods double damage from things like commander and psychosis crawler
      3. 1 Expropriate Moar Turns
      4. 1 Insurrection Win Condition
      5. 1 Leyline of Anticipation Love instant speed everything
      6. 1 Mind's Eye Cheap Card Draw
      7. 1 Nexus of Fate Moar Turns
      8. 1 Thought Reflection Double Card Draw Double Damage
      9. 1 Torbran, Thane of Red Fell Extra Damage
      10. 1 Windfall Wheels
      11. 1 Dockside Extortionist Ryan said it was good
    8. Cards I added and why
      1. With the stable I can see what cards I’ve added and if something new doesn’t feel right you can always see what you removed.
      2. Decks need to have good synergies in them, not just combos or combos at all. Also just because a card is good, doesn’t mean it’s great for every deck. 
      3. What is the deck you’ve revamped the most? Did it work out for you? We want to know.
