Control Magic Discussion
3 days ago
My favorite win potentially ever came today. I usually don't get to play during the week, so this was even more epic for being a game that should have never happened.
Late game, only me, Mizzix storm light, and Baral denial left still alive, with the Atraxa infect hamstrung by my Solemnity and taken out in the mid game. Mizzix gets her storm interrupted by Baral, with Mizzix thinking that she had to try sometime, she had some counter backup, but the counter battle just happened to be won by Baral (surprise). I take the opportunity to drop Dark Depths into my Solemnity that everyone was so happy I had played when Atraxa was threatening the beat down with an army of infect creatures. All of a sudden, my new Merit Lage threatens the one hit kill against either opponent. I am sitting behind a solid Pillow Fort with Delaying Shield and Solemnity out and feeling good, and pass turn without playing any spells. Baral untaps, and he Control Magics my Merit Lage! I consider my situation. I'm holding a Deflecting Palm, a Path to Exile, and a Lapse of Certainty. I am OK. I let the Control Magic resolve, figuring that Baral would either take out Mizzix since my fort is solid, or I just Deflecting Palm the attack against me, and keeping the Path to Exile as a backup plan. Baral has very little board, and the only thing threatening is the grip of cards in his hand and 9 Islands sitting untapped. With my Merit Lage, he looks rather smug, and much more threatening than before. I am cautious, but still feel OK. Baral overloads a Cyclonic Rift! Two. Islands. Untapped. Mizzix shouts a curse and scoops. Time to gamble. I let it resolve. I pick up everything but my land. Baral cackles and turns Merit Lage sideways. I'm at 15 and Baral is at 17. I Deflecting Palm. Baral cackles again, taps the Islands, and drops a Mana Drain on the table. I drop my Lapse of Certainty on top of it, and push forward three of my untapped lands, making a show of tapping them. Stunned Baral curses, Atraxa and Mizzix whoop.
I won a counter battle with Baral after he resolved Cyclonic Rift to resolve my Deflecting Palm against my own stolen Merit Lage token for the win. Best. Win. Ever. This will have to end up as meta legend.

Since you're about controlling creatures, how about Control Magic? And if you're doing wizard tribal, maybe Docent of Perfection Flip , Inalla, Archmage Ritualist Or Azami, Lady of Scrolls? Oh, and any Jace.

So I'm reading the text of Fumble and I'm seeing some sweet interactions. I'd like to confirm that these work.

Remove Elder Deep-Fiend for one of the 2 big leviathans or a huge draw card, you likely won't be using its emerge and for 8 mana you should have a win condition.
Stealing commanders is extremely good, hence Control Magic. Remove that threat and get a threat for the price of 4.
I'd run Sapphire Medallion over Expedition Map if you're looking for ramp. The medallion lets you keep 1 less mana open or those instants, and speeds up your game, and is better ramp in general when you don't have some crazy land like cabal coffers. You usually search for the bounce land with map, which isn't really speeding your curve up and only nets you 1 more mana per turn after its played compared to the medallion (in the worst case). Maybe searching for Soldevi Excavations would be worth it, but you aren't really using its scry ability when you get it in our games. Same goes for Felwar stone if you are fine with color fixing without it (And I think you are). If you're casting one spell per turn then they are equal. If you are casting more than one spell per turn, then they are not equal.
The boots are good in a creature focused deck, but you aren't running a creature focused deck and your commander (unlike before) isn't the crux of your deck. Run more artifact/enchantment removal or counterspells in place of them.
If you want a good blocker with flying, rather than the drake, run Fog Bank. This is the last time I'll mention that thing and I'll stop bugging you about it.
The biggest thing though.... what's your wincon? Before it was an 18/18 monstrosity of a land, but I don't really see anything now. You could steal wincons with things like Desertion, Spelljack, Gather Specimens, Control Magic and especially Rite of Replication, I think these would fit perfect in your deck.

Briber is amazing but expensive in terms of money. Acquire might be a worthwhile inclusion if my meta runs a lot of high CMC artifacts. Mind Control is OK though it is a a lesser Control Magic. Confiscate is worth trying out, thank you.

Daedalus19876, I think you’ll find that In Bolas's Clutches is probably better than control magic in most cases, as in commander the legendary thing is almost inconsequential, the mana cost is not TOO much, and Control Magic only takes control of creatures.
