LOL Ridiculous match vs Niv-Mizzet

So I'm playing against Niv-Mizzet in DLC 3's campaign. I'm using the goblins/burn deck. I've boarded in all the Dragon's Claws, and got a couple of them out early on in the game.

Since he's using Reb/Blue, I gained a lot of life early on so that even when he burned away all my attackers and I was out of burns, he couldn't kill me with his flyers.

I now have 116 life and 19 cards left in my library. He has 16 life, and 9 cards left in his library.

This game has gone on, and on, and on, and on, and... well, you get the point. I keep trying to kill him, BELIEVE me I've tried... although I probably should've left his creatures alone somewhere around 50 life or so and just stockpiled buns, but I just haven't been drawing many to begin with. I used up a lot of burn early on keeping his creatures in check so I wouldn't die, and since then he's been burning and using his blue control on every dang thing I try to do with my creatures, leaving me only able to occassionally hit him here and there. He just used Wheel of Fortune, so hopefully I'll be able to finish him off, but if not he will actually run out of cards!

Every time I get a creature or two out, he burns away just enough of them so that his 2/5 flyers are able to fend off the remaining ones. He got out a late-game Dragon's Claw and Kraken's Eye and has been steadily climbing back in his life total from those two unfortunately.

I never, ever thought I would see a game where a red burn deck vs a blue/red control/burn deck would go to 1: this high a life total for one player and 2: until one player ran his deck out of cards.

Edit: Finally finished him off thanks to Rage Reflection. End game stats: me 120 life and 17 cards left in deck, Mizzet -3 life and 7 cards left in his deck.
400,000gs reached 1-13-15. Used D4 to get it (get it, it has 4 in the name) due to my disgust with how Halo: MCC has been handled. Achievement used for 400k milestone: Business as Usual.
