Council of the Absolute seems like a weird choice. It only grabs a few card types, and as far as I can tell is only reuseable with Capsize. Sure you can lock a card into a players hand. Or you could spend the four mana you use to actually cast it. There's better cards, though I can't remember their names.
Stain the Mind is little use against anyone but those who's decks you know. Other discard spells would be just as good.
I'm glad you remembered to grab cards like Mycosynth Lattice and Celestial Dawn. Exotic Orchard is mostly useless though. It'll usually tap for colorless. Or Blue/White depending on which of my decks your facing.
Also, you don't actually have to put your commander in your decklist, he's automatically counted towards the 100.

Definately a strong politcal tool in commander. It's not like it's a new effect; Nevermore, Meddling Mage and Council of the Absolute exist, but I do like Wizard's new twist on it - you can see what they have avaliable. Unfortunately, by the time a cmc 7 creature comes out, your opponents may have already cast every card in their hand, making it less useful, at least in constructed. In commander I can see it being very anoying though... especially because it can be run as a commander itself!

Thanks! The Restoration Angel combos well with Meddling Mage. It also is good will Council of the Absolute. But I won't play Thoughtsieze because the deck isn't black and it only shows up as black because of Surgical Extraction, which allows me to search their deck and hand to see what type of deck it is, so that I can name their key cards, like Splinter Twin, for UR twin, or Young Pyromancer, for grixis delver.

Isochron Scepter is pretty much a guaranteed add-in (when I find one). Not really artifact heavy, Meddling Mage is just a Nevermore with a body, and Council of the Absolute is pretty bad in a singleton format.

In that case, a fun trick is Isochron Scepter imprinting a counterspell, like Azorius Charm.Master Transmuter, Ethersworn Canonist, and Skill Borrower are great if you're artifact heavy.Meddling Mage and Council of the Absolute are pretty good.
