I know this is a tad old but I'm just wondering why you don't run any Nivs in this deck. I feel like one or 2 nivs would be a touch stronger. If not, I'd like to know why, I'm always interested in learning deck building, thanks!

Glad you are enjoying the list! It's a blast to play! I'm always working on new tech and innovations for it, hopefully I can keep up with it as the meta shifts! Expansion//Explosion is one of my favorite cards in this format!
Dear Chris,
I want to thank you for this great deck! It's demolishing the current meta and has rekindled my love for MTG. I would like to point out how insane a card Expansion/Explosion is.
* Expansion can actually copy your opponent's Counterspell and then counter it yourself.
*Playing Explosion at the endstep can force your opponent to discard a lot of cards.
*Playing Explosion at the endstep, the turn before your create Ral's emblem, gives you a 10+ hand to murder your opponent.
Are you still MBing 4 chemister insight?
How exactly are you supposed to play Expansion/Explosion? I almost never get to use that card.
This deck is definitly awesome. I made some changes but the core is in. Actualy i'm testing syncopate instead of essence scatter. Any thought on it ? I like the versatility and the exile effect.
Thanks for getting back to me, ok that makes sense !
Hey, just want to say I love this deck. The only one ive crafted since the rotation so far. I have a few questions if you dont mind. So, what do you think about life gain? Maybe switch out a chemister's for one? (Ive been trying a little less draw.) And what is the win condition specifically against control? Are you trying to not deck out with teferi, while also forcing them to draw a lot with explosion? Are you trying to burn them out? I suppose it depends?
Why did you decide to not run Lyra anymore?
Hey man, love the deck. I've come up with something vaguely similar, but couldn't have balanced it properly without you! I like the sideboard ideas too, but would you mind explaining which cards you'd sideboard out against some popular matchups? I know I might be asking for a long answer, but all your help is hugely appreciated. Keep doing what you're doing!
