Aven Mindcensor Discussion

Eledain on Advertise your MODERN deck!

Ghost Quarter is really nice, but it's already hard to make a three color manabase with four Field of Ruin.

I will add Aven Mindcensor. Really forgot this dude. :-)

Eledain I think you should run more basics so that Field of Ruins don't end up being worse strip mines. I also think some focus on entering the battlefield stuff could give the deck some spice as you have a Tidehollow Sculler, Siege Rhino and Knight of Autumn. maybe something similar to Eldrazi and taxes to take advantage of Tidehollow Sculler exiling it. also, where are the Ghost Quarters? this deck definitely needs it. another thing that could be cool is Cat Jesus aka Leonin Arbiter to stop fetches and them searching for basics. something to watch out for if you do put it in is it is symmetrical so your Field of Ruin will cost 4. a version of Leonin Arbiter that isn't symmetrical is Aven Mindcensor

my deck is evil. feedback to make even more so is appreciated.

Ocelot44 on Kalemne is Best Girl [EDH Primer] v1.6

If you want a way to deal with opponents’ lands without expending your own, then there’s always Field of Ruin. Faith's Fetters can deal with problem lands too, although it doesn’t stop Cabal Coffers or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. There’s always good old Stone Rain too

I still recommend Strip Mine and Dust Bowl first though! They’re so good because they don’t take up nonland card slots!

I think one of our problems is that we don’t see eye to eye on hate cards. I LOVE cards like Blood Moon, Rest in Peace, Aven Mindcensor, Torpor Orb etc because they all punish degenerate decks! It brings me so much joy to drop a hate card because it helps me just as much as any other card that only helps me - by hurting everyone else

Aura of Silence is exactly like that. You’re wrong about it being a 1:1 answer card because it prevents players from doing everything they want in a turn. No matter what, it deters further threats, and once someone plays something that you don’t like, you can just blow it up!

You can also think about it this way - hitting your opponents in the face with Kalemne doesn’t help you, it only hurts your opponents. Hate cards are no different

Anyways that’s just me - I’m not here to tell you to build a certain deck or play a certain way, I just want you to know where I come from :)

Hey, I like the list a lot as I am an avid fan of making making mono white work in edh. I have a Thalia cEDH deck, and from what I can see from your list there are a couple of things I could potentially suggest that I think would work well. Firstly I think a good budget option for Ravages of War is Winter Orb. It can function similarly but can also be tutorable via enlightened which is nice. Also one of the best removal spells that I could potentially recommend is Council's Judgment. It hits anything and if you politic right, you can often 2 for 1 the best things on the board, super good. Also, against higher power level decks, running the least nonbo hatebears is often really good at slowing your opponents down as well. Some of the best ones that I think aligns with your strategy are ones like Aven Mindcensor, Lodestone Golem, Imposing Sovereign (if kiki combo and friends are popular/ and for difficult blocking), Phyrexian Revoker for thrasios and various other threats. Other than that, that's just my two cents, and hopefully its good consideration!

5poons on cEDH; Temur Valakut

2 weeks ago

I just began playing EDH a couple of months ago and my first deck was a Child of Alara land deck that used Valakut, the Molten Pinnacle as the primary win condition. Recently I have wanted to change the commander and possibly shave off a color or two in the process! While researching more land based commanders I stumbled upon your temur build and it grabbed my interest. Due to this I have lots of questions :)

Why are you running Meloku the Clouded Mirror instead of Trade Routes? It has a much lower CMC, dodges prevalent creature removal, and has a second ability that could be relevant in certain situations. Also Llanowar Scout is literally just a better Budoka Gardener. They have the same ability although his body is better and he wont forcefully change into a different creature. His body is also better than Walking Atlas but because the atlas is colorless it is still great and definitely deserves a spot.

One interesting card I stumbled upon is Hedron Crab as he helps fill your graveyard. Do you think it could be a useful card?

Would you ever use the card Clear the Land? It is a way to put land onto the battlefield, but it presents a risk as it could exile any number of cards. The card would be hilarious if someone tutored before your turn and was forced to exile what they wanted.

Is Training Grounds even worth running as it literally only affects Thrasios, Triton Hero?

Is Return to the Earth worth the extra cost when compared to something like Naturalize? I understand that it kills Aven Mindcensor and the cost is less important when you have lots of lands, but it still seems very heavy.

I noticed that your list doesn’t contain Eternal Witness but has Life from the Loam. What do you do if you unintentionally send Scapeshift or Splendid Reclamation to an early grave?

I really like the card Excavation and have seen a card that is kind of similar but also quite different called Aggressive Mining. Maybe it could be used before the 'big turn' to try and find more fuel for a Manabond or something else? Plus the sacrificed lands could be easily recurred and used later. I'm curious to see if you would you ever use this, why or why not?

Would you ever consider shifting the deck to Lord Windgrace or do you thing that would make the deck less reliable? By gaining black you would have access to more tutors, but you already have land tutors and that is about all you need... But by losing blue you would eliminate lots of sources of card draw and stax effects. So I guess answered my own question lol, but still want to hear your opinion.

I understand Thrasios, Triton Hero and his role in the deck, but is Kraum, Ludevic's Opus literally just there for access to the color red and a possibly offensive option?

Alright! I think that is all of the questions I have at the moment. Thank you for sharing this deck! This may be the way I want to change my Child of Alara deck and your answers will help me fully decide this.

DuTogira on Best “Opps all creatures” commander?

3 weeks ago

A couple of suggestions:
Thalia, Guardian of Thraben
Thalia, Heretic Cathar
Aven Mindcensor
(All of those are good against some of the more obnoxious combo decks in EDH)
Brutalizer Exarch
Protean Hulk
Imperial Recruiter
Recruiter of the Guard
Woodland Bellower

From there I would go with any creatures you can find which give optional card draw (don't want to overdraw when you surge) to help you draw into surge asap. Good luck friend!

Kogarashi on Aven Mindcensor and Tempt with ...

3 weeks ago

No player receives priority during the resolution of a spell or ability. Unless a spell or ability specifically allows a player to cast a spell or play an ability during its resolution (such as Unexpected Results), no one can actually play spells or abilities during resolution.

So your friend would either have to cast Aven Mindcensor before Tempt with Discovery begins to resolve, or wait until it's done. If they allow three people to do the search first, then the spell is already resolving and they can't put Aven Mindcensor on the stack until Tempt with Discovery is completely resolved and cleared from the stack.

KingofBarcelona on Aven Mindcensor and Tempt with ...

3 weeks ago

So the topic arose: Somebody casts Tempt with Discovery and my friend attempts to cast Aven Mindcensor for its effect AFTER 3 people have decided to search beyond the first. He attempts to cast Aven in order to affect the opponents searches but only after 3 people declare search. The question is: Does this work? Is there a period of time possible to do this. To my knowledge that is not how it works but they wouldn't believe me without a second opinion from someone smarter than me.
