Beguiler of Wills Discussion

chromosohm on Inalla: Steal Your Heart

Of the suggested cuts, I outright removed Voidmage Prodigy and AEther Adept. Voidmage as a means of being both a sac outlet while also providing some interaction though ultimately he can't make a lot of use out of the tokens created which is part of why I think he's worth cutting. The second is AEther Adept which while being reusable creature bounce for 4 mana, has her affect elsewhere and so can be removed as stronger abilities exist such as Barrin, Master Wizard, Venser, Shaper Savant, Mystic Confluence, and Galecaster Colossus.

As for the rest, here's the reasoning for each: Vedalken AEthermage - wizardcycling is huge and lets me get whatever wizard I need which is a huge amount of flexibility.

Anathemancer - potential win-con if i have a repeatable flicker or naban/panharmonicon out).

Deadeye Navigator - repeatable flicker ability which can be big game for most ETB creatures.

Sundial of the Infinite - lets the tokens stay forever. This seems like a really cool effect and getting the tokens to last forever just seems like such a crazy interaction and value generator.

Chaos Warp - Gets rid of anything on the table in red which is critical considering there's no specific enchantment removal in the deck.

Barrin, Master Wizard - is a repeatable bounce and sac outlet which is really helpful.

Nin, the Pain Artist - serves several purposes (removal, card draw, and given infinite mana which the deck can generate, can be an instant death button that is difficult to counter).

Master of Waves - another bounce win-con for the deck. Even given two copies, he's got a lot of potential to create a ton of creatures. Added with flicker effects/sundial of the infinite and it becomes a total house.

I think I'll avoid most of the creatures as counter spells but Patron Wizard and Kira, Great Glass-Spinner are great suggestions just a little bit out of budget right now.

As for copying and stealing creatures, I think those are both really good suggestions! What are your thoughts on Cytoplast Manipulator vs Beguiler of Wills or Echo Mage vs Sigil Tracer.

But I think both start to move the deck into a certain direction (focusing on stealing stuff or copying spells) which is maybe exactly what it needs.

Beguiler of Wills and Exert Influence both work pretty great with Will's +1. Maybe worth considering

Kogarashi on Killing a player with Beguiler ...

Yes. Beguiler of Wills' ability is a control-changing effect, which ends when the player controlling that control-changing effect leaves the game. So creatures stolen with Beguiler of Wills will go back to their owners.

Other things that happen, in order:

  • All objects the player owns leave the game

  • That player's control-changing effects end

  • Any spells or abilities that player still controls on the stack cease to exist

  • Anything still controlled by that player at this point is exiled (such as if It That Betrays put a nontoken creature someone else sacrificed onto the battlefield under the leaving player's control), as there's no "previous owner" for that instance of the thing.

In a multiplayer game if I kill a player who is using Beguiler of Wills do the stolen creatures go back to their owners?

Have you considered Beguiler of Wills? Also, I don't understand how Bazaar Trader works with stealing opponent's creatures. Hoping you could explain that to me.

Merieke Ri Berit, Preacher and Beguiler of Wills could be fun since you can sac what you steal :O Magewright's Stone and Thousand-Year Elixir would allow you to use Ertai multiple times per round. Intruder Alarm would be especially good here if you ran things like Bloodline Keeper  Flip and Thraben Doomsayer. Mimic Vat seems useful as well given all your ETB-effect creatures. Dovescape could be a silly way to dominate the game, especially if you have Guile or Lullmage Mentor out.

I would definitely run more than 31 lands in a deck like this. Maybe remove redundant/low card advantage stuff like Render Silent, Fact or Fiction, and Counterspell and try to increase your land count?

Cool deck! Upvoted :)

Prosamis, thanks for checking out my deck and taking the time to recommend some improvements. I made some changes like swapping the commander from Inalla to Nekusaur, and I put in Anathemancer, Beguiler of Wills and Bloodline Necromancer, however I was wondering if you had any other recommendations of specific cards to change or any that would work well in the deck? If not its all good, just wanting your opinion. Thank you, again.
