Control Magic Discussion

I like it. If you want to go true "steal your stuff" I would suggest finding a way to add in stuff like Praetor's Grasp, Bribery, Acquire, Treachery, Mind Control, Control Magic, Domestication, Corrupted Conscience, and Fool's Demise. Before I made my grixis deck I was going to go Grixis steal your stuff so I do have some thoughts. Plus cards like Act of Treason which you can attack with thier creature, then sacrifice them to Ashnod's Altar which could trigger Dictate of Erebos (or Grave Pact).

Any reason Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker isn't in here? All Grixis decks can use him haha.

I was bouncing ideas for a Thada Adel, Acquisitor list off of a friend and at one point they mentioned that this seems like a mean deck. His big problem was the searching of opponent's libraries for artifacts, but not necessarily the deck as a whole (ie. Control Magic is fine, Bribery is not). I agreed with him on that point, but I went and asked another friend and they said a deck based around stealing cards from others isn't "nice" at all. I feel like I'm a little too lenient on how nice a deck needs to be (my Grenzo deck has both Ruination and Blood Moon) and I don't see the big deal with them. What is your reaction if someone comes to the table and flips over Thada Adel, Acquisitor or Empress Galina as their commander?

Note: I would add the deck list, but I decided to swap generals to Yasova Dragonclaw, so it's in pieces.

I'd advise against running Melira, Sylvok Outcast. If someone managed to take her with things like Control Magic, a Clone, or Bribery then they now have the perfect counter for your deck. I guess it's not a big deal if you don't expect to run into blue but it's something to consider.

Also, Inkmoth Nexus is great fun in any infect deck.

One mention: Just a Minute only requires the commander to be Momir Vig, Simic Visionary. I can easily shuffle 5+ times in a turn with my Momir deck.

Suggested additions:

So Many Possible Actions: Activate a loyalty ability, ability, and an ability of an artifact, then deal combat damage with and sacrifice that permanent to do lethal damage to yourself. Then return it to the battlefield under your control with a +1/+1 counter on it. Pass the turn after activating the loyalty ability again. (5/5) (JK, but it's possible. Bonus points to anyone who can figure out how!)

I Hate Everybody: Cast the fifth wrath in the game. (Creature wraths only!) (4/5)

You Must be Cheating: Win the game with 0 or less life. (3/5)

Stop punching yourself: Deal combat damage to a player with a creature you permanently control that is owned by that player. (I.E. with Control Magic rather than Insurrection) (2/5)

Your Own Worst Enemy: Cause the most life loss to yourself in a game without gaining life because of cards you own. Lose at least 10 life this way. (3/5)

Daniboydas glad you like it. You can Remove Treachery and Bribery to make it cheaper. I used Control Magic for a long time and it worked just fine

Calliber on That's a cool deck you got there!

Stunt Double, Evil Twin, Vizier of Many Faces would all be better than Clone and cheap to obtain. Sakashima's Student if you want to spend.

Vesuva or Thespian's Stage for potential lands.

Control Magic and Corrupted Conscience make for good options as well.

Praetor's Grasp

....I run a Dimir deck that essentially the same thing.

Enlarge could be replaced with Tower Above as target removal/a way to deal with indestructible.

Mind Control can be Control Magic.

Primeval Titan & Prophet of Kruphix are sadly banned now in Commander. I'd replace them with more ramp, like Sakura-Tribe Elder or Farseek or Cultivate.
