Control Magic Discussion

cdkime on Card interaction; Willbreaker

Control Magic :

You cast Control Magic , targeting an opponent's creature. Willbreaker 's ability triggers and goes on the stack. Willbreaker 's ability resolves first, and you gain control of the creature until Willbreaker leaves the battlefield.

The creature is still the same card, and thus is still a valid target for Control Magic . Control Magic resolves, enchanting the creature you now control as a result of Willbreaker .

If you lose control of Control Magic , while Willbreaker is in play, you will still control the creature until Willbreaker leaves play. If Willbreaker leaves play first, you will still control the creature until Control Magic no longer enchants the creature.

Fumble :

You will target the creature triggering Willbreaker . It resolves and the creature is now under your control. At this time, you do not have control over the auras and equipment attached to it.

It is still the same object, so Fumble will resolve and bounce the creature to its owner's hand (not you). You will gain control of the auras and equipment attached to that creature.

Curse of the Swine :

You target X creatures. Willbreaker will resolve, and you will gain control of those creatures. Curse of the Swine will resolve and exile those creatures. You will get 2/2 green Boar creatures, as you controlled the creatures at the time of Curse of the Swine 's resolution.

Unfortunately, Dominus of Fealty isn't legal with Merieke Ri Berit as the commander.

If you want to go with the mind-control theme, check out Sen Triplets .

Some of your cards have better equivalents-- Control Magic can replace Mind Control , Counterspell or Dissipate can replace Cancel . Look for cards that do what you're already doing, but cheaper, more efficiently, or with a larger effect.

Since your Commander is a steal effect, you can probably cut some of the higher-cost cards with similar effects and add in some personal protection effects.

I'm far from competitive in EDH, so take that for what it's worth. But let these thoughts help start you developing this deck.

Hi there, I'm from the advertise your commander thread.

I used to have a Nin, the Pain Artist deck based on stealing and copying your opponents stuff. I always liked to win using your opponents cards, so its nice to see a deck with a similar theme.

I think your current build has a lot of room for optimization as there are many cards that have strictly or subjectively better counterparts. These are some suggestions for cards I would replace and what with:

I would probably drop the flicker subtheme you currently have because you dont run a lot of creatures and go down a few lands (37 should be fine) in favor of more draw (Rhystic Study & Mystic Remora are nice). Also, one of the good things about black is the access to tutors. By adding tutors you increase the consistency of your deck, as they effectively serve as an extra copy of all the other cards in your deck. Lim-Dul's Vault, Beseech the Queen and Dark Petition are some good relatively cheap ones. (If you want to invest a bit of money in it, Demonic Tutor and Vampiric Tutor are great.)

I hope this helps and good luck with deckbuilding!

PS. Dont forget to comment on the previously posted deck in the 'advertise your commander deck' thread. ;)

Some white bordered card that come to my mind are: -Control Magic -Dregs of Sorrow -Exile -Kismet -Memory Lapse -Opportunity -Power Sink -Purify -Reprisal -Strip Mine ***

Anyway, it depends on what you want from your deck! But strip mine is a white bordered must have. +1 for the nostalgia

Haha thanks for the suggestions! I've opted to replace Control Magic effects with removal for now as reanimating the corpses with my commander achieves pretty much the same thing :p I'm considering Take Possession, Volition Reins or Dragonlord Silumgar to steal PWs though!

Expropriate is definitely worth a slot, I just don't use it cause it's not very exciting for me. Same reason I don't run Consecrated Sphinx.

I really love this deck. I have a Nebuchadnezzar deck that revolves around making my opponent top deck and then steal from their graveyard or field. I also do some clone stuff. I recommend some steal cards as well cause they fit in the style of playing your opponents cards. Control Magic, Bribery , Treachery, and Expropriate are all wonderful cards that fit in the style of playing your opponent cards. you also can include Copy Artifact as a nice way to get more mana so you can use your commander ability more often.
