Dissipation Field Discussion

theindigoeffect on I'm Looking for Enchantments Like ...

1 week ago

The aforesaid enchantments will be used for my superfriends deck, which encompasses all five colors.

I prefer enchantments because they combo with some of my other cards, but I'm open to alternatives: I even have some in my deck.

Just in case someone else might get some use out of this thread, here's a list of enchantments of I've acquired so far, even though they're more annoying than specifically harmful. I like the prison sub-theme that exists in my deck, but I'd like to ramp up the pain.

Winter Orb

Mana Web

Aura of Silence

Karmic Justice

Sphere of Safety


No Mercy

Fog Bank

Collective Restraint

Stormtide Leviathan

Dissipation Field

Norn's Annex

Ghostly Prison


Frozen AEther


Maze of Ith

Kor Haven

Ice Floe


Archetype of Imagination

Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger


Horn of Deafening

Door to Nothingness

i really like this deck, but there are a few cards that don't make scene for me like Dissipation Field,Aqueous Form and Propaganda. could you explain those choices for me? also i would like to know why you chose Kami of the Crescent Moon as your commander.

Hey, I've been running a Depala deck in a reasonably well-funded play group for a while with really great results. I'm not sure if this deck is intentionally budget-friendly or if it's just an attempt to strongly maintain the theme, but there are a few things that can give this deck a really big power boost.

First, my play style is a little different. I run the "good" dwarves, but I also largely crew my vehicles with hatebears (Grand Abolisher, Aven Mindcensor who is now $4, and the like). That said, Blood Moon resolving is usually the end of the game for about 50% of decks out there. So Magus of the Moon, who can also crew your vehicles is a pretty solid option. Iroas is a monster in this deck if you want to be able to swing safely, but a 4-drop is pretty slow. Turns out Wizards has a solution for that. It's called Dolmen Gate. Get it while it's hot.

Containment Priest is pretty broken. Mirror Entity and Taurean Mauler are the best Dwarves out there. Recruiter of the Guard finds answers and crews vehicles. Wheel of Fortune is broken. Dump hand, draw new hand. Or use it after an opponent resolves a Demonic Tutor. Ethersworn Canonist can be incredible depending on your meta, and Michiko Konda, Truth Seeker can keep you safe (since you do not have access to Dissipation Field or No Mercy in these colors. Plus she can crew things!

Finally, consider a Fell the Mighty and/or Retribution of the Meek at the top end of your curve, for cheap unilateral board wipes so you can keep on swinging. I found that without them, or anthems, I was screwed once my opponents got their first fat creature down.

My deck is here:

You probably want to hit edit and change deck type to commander so it doesn't say your deck is illegal. While I am at it, I will pelt you with some of my personal favorite U/W cards I know of. Like Daxos of Meletis. Since your using blue and white together, you have to make use of the blue and white cards as they are generally better than mono-colored cards.

Let me see here. Air Elemental is outdated, try Pristine Skywise instead. Its WAY better for one more mana, and you can be invincible when you cast!

Cobalt Golem is kinda gross, I like Ascended Lawmage its ten times better! (because he can already fly and cant get hit with abilities)

Glacial Crasher is ok. If you have him for trample I understand. If not Shipbreaker Kraken hands down. (Because he can be stronger for the same cost and tap out cards)

Glacial Wall is ok. But one of the all time best white and blue cards is Wall of Denial so scrap it for that. (Because its 1 tougher and enemies cant hit it with abilities)

Icatian Infantry? Try Deft Duelist

Tandem Lookout? Swap for a Curiosity

Blessed Reversal pales in comparison to Dazzling Reflection

I love Sphere of Safety but your deck needs to be well near 80% enchantments for it to be worth it. Dissipation Field is more up your ally. People wont attack you when they know there creatures get sent right back.

Other than that, your well on your way! With the number of flying creatures you have, its worth noting that Stormtide Leviathan can mean you win the game. So if you add anything, this and Wall of Denial are your two best bets.

If you have any questions, white and blue are my favorite colors so hit me up!

Rzepkanut Actually that's a fair point. I think that Boomerang out for Recoil is a good idea, so I'll try that. As for AEther Barrier and Dissipation Field, that might also be a good decision, especially AEther Barrier is a downside for my opponents and I while Dissipation Field is more versital.

You could try switching Boomerang with Recoil and AEther Barrier with Dissipation Field. Those cards are kinda similar to each other.

Rzepkanut No problem! I had Recoil in an earlier decklist and am still somewhat debating whether or not it should have a spot. Dissipation Field is a great enchantment that does synergies while with my commander and my discard prison theme. However, I am not certain what I would replace it with. While those two spells are debatable, I decided that Painful Quandary was painfully (pun intended) not great in this deck. I think it is too expensive for what it does and found it a lack luster of a card in conflicting situations. Thanks for the input!
