    Is there a rules question here? Or, are you asking about the strategic value of the card?

    Using the second ability of Nivix, Aerie of the Firemind allows you to exile the top card of your library, and cast it from there if it's an instant or sorcery card. You still have to pay its mana costs as normal, and follow the timing restrictions of the exiled card. That's it. The "point" is that you are casting the card without having drawn it, which is unique I suppose. Is it usually easier and cheaper to just draw the card and cast it from your hand? Certainly. Nivix is simply providing an alternate option, and can potentially be better than drawing the card (for example, if your opponent has Maralen of the Mornsong, you wouldn't be able to draw cards, so an ability like this can occasionally come in handy.
