Dissipation Field Discussion
1 day ago
They evoke the creature and trigger the sacrifice clause and the damage ability. They put damage on top over the sacrifice, and when that resolves it triggers Dissipation Field causing the Cloudthresher to bounce before the evoke trigger cab resolve. They choose the order of both those triggers because they control them, even though one will cause one you control to trigger.

I'm a new mtg player and still don't get along with the rules very well. I had Dissipation Field on the battledield and attacked my opponent with a flying creature.
As I declared attackers, my opponent cast Cloudthresher.
My question is: would Cloudthresher be able to block one of my flying creatures before he gets sent back to my opponent's hand? If so, no combat damage would be dealt, correct?
My guess is that he gets sent back immediately, because I think triggered abilities need to be dealt with before blockers are announced.

Warped Devotion makes a lot of sense if you're able to get them in topdeck mode fast. Personally, I like the design of the specters and my meta is very creature-heavy so it's very important to have some blockers up at all times.
Phyrexian Arena and Consecrated Sphinx are both cards I own but run in different decks. Minus the mana base, this deck was designed to be relatively cheap so I've not included them in this build, if you're going with bounce and pillowfort have you considered Dissipation Field?

Always great to see another Talrand player. +1 from me!
Oboro, Palace in the Clouds synergizes with Quicksilver Fountain. I'm also curious as to your experience with the fountain. I have a competitive talrand deck but don't run it because it feels slow. Thoughts?
As Foretold - (Read) EACH TURN!!!
back to basics - Who needs friends
Future Sight - A lot of people don't like this card because your opponents will know what you're drawing. Since your deck is basically counter, draw and bounce, it doesn't really matter if they know if they can't stop you. I like this card because it provides CRAZY value
Invoke Prejudice - Who needs friends right?
Land Equilibrium - I watch the show friends since I have no friends once I played this card.
Mystic Remora - MORE TAXING!
Rhystic Study - Surprised you don't already have it in the list
I love proteous staff, but you seem to have too many creatures for a talrand deck. If you really wanna play the staff, you should limit yourself to just a few bombs or very useful utility creatures like Snapcaster Mage.
Speaking of wizards, add Riptide Laboratory to save talrand and get extra uses out of snapcaster.
I recommend to take out the following...
Dissipation Field - Allows opponents to abuse ETB effects.
Favorable Winds - Win more. Not needed if you're behind, not too impact if you're ahead.
Curse of the Swine - It's an ok card, meta dependent.
Distant Melody - Replace with nonconditional draw. This card is great if you can pull it off, useless if you can't. You should go with something more traditional.
If you have any questions, please let me know. If you want some more ideas, check out my competitive deck Tisk Tisk Talrand

Have you considered Dissipation Field with the amount of creatures you are running? Just another thing to prevent the attackers from ganging up on you.

I would suggest that you add in more pillowfort enchantments, because, well, you're bound to get pummeled in the face sooner or later. Ghostly Prison, Windborn Muse, Koskun Falls, Propaganda, Sphere of Safety, Collective Restraint, Dissipation Field, No Mercy, Aurification, and Peacekeeper all work. One nice combo you can run is Energy Field + Rest in Peace (You can no longer take damage as long as those enchantments remain on the field).
If you're aiming for a more oppressive control deck, you also can throw in Fatespinner, Frozen AEther, Blind Obedience, Torpor Orb, Hushwing Gryff, Iona, Shield of Emeria (especially funny when you're playing against a monocolor deck), Linvala, Keeper of Silence, Meishin, the Mind Cage, Indulgent Tormentor, Painful Quandary, Angelic Arbiter... I could go on and on and on.
I'm not sure about the status of your playgroup, but I also would suggest sweepers like Cataclysm, Tragic Arrogance, Mutilate, Cyclonic Rift, basically any sweeper that says "Sacrifice", "Bounce" or "-X/-X" to account for cards like Avacyn, Angel of Hope.
