Control Magic Discussion

Looks good :) Might I suggest adding a bit more recursion? Purely based on the amount of Control Magic type auras you have. Hanna, Ship's Navigator and Dowsing Shaman are very good repeatable recursion cards. Also, a bit more card draw never hurts, Sphinx's Revelation is awesome in the late game to refill your hand.

Looking good so far I'll just add a few notes if thats ok. Probably replace one of those Acquire with Bribery. Coalition Relic is strictly better than Obelisk of Grixis. While Dragon Blood isn't the worst I think Unspeakable Symbol is most likely better (6 mana for the first +1 counter is rough) especially since you need kinda low life to trigger dethrone. Feast on the Fallen is a card that seems good but that I don't super like since to get max value out of it relies on your opponents attacking each other instead of you. Finally Fork or Twincast are always better than Doublecast.

I did not know this until today, not only does Marchesa's ability effect herself but it still triggers if she herself isn't on the battlefield so wrath effects like Damnation,Toxic Deluge and Blasphemous Act will basically only effect your opponents.

Soul Channeling is some sweet old school tech but I'd rather get haste so you can get those counters on asap since once they're on your team is safe, Fervor and Lightning Greaves are classics, Bloodsworn Steward, Urabrask the Hidden, and Dragonlord Kolaghan are also fair options.

Control Magic is a powerful effect but if you're only gonna include 1 it might as well be either Treachery or Corrupted Conscience.

On the creature front I won't say too much more other than maybe cosider a few cards that just get +1/+1 counters in other ways like Scourge of the Throne, Markov Blademaster, and Taurean Mauler. Although none of those are compulsory inclusions by any means.

Cheers, I just checked on the MTG website and Control Magic isn't on the Modern banned list

First I would take out Control Magic to make this standard legal.

if you want to bring the cost down a little and increase your synergy I recommend taking a look at my deck what a nice deck you have...Anand it's gone

I'm by no means an expert but I've been working on this deck for quite some time and am rather proud of how it's turned out

Grafdigger's Cage, Torpor Orb and Humility. These you could perhaps run.

What about Control Magic, Take Possession, Confiscate, and Corrupted Conscience? That his commander or the problem and make it his problem.

What about chaos. Scrambleverse, and Thieves' Auction

In that case, a playset of Control Magic might be fun (less so for the might player maybe:P)

Creature - Human

Espionage 1 (Whenever this creature deals combat damage to a player, that player reveals a card in their hand at random.)


Limited Edition Alpha had some interestingly worded cards. Compare, for example Control Magic's Alpha Printing to its Commander Anthology printing.

Take your favourite new card and reword the rules text as if it had been printed in Alpha.
