Dissipation Field Discussion

multimedia on EDH Ur Dragon Tribal

Hey, good start.

Sol Ring, Command Tower and Arcane Signet are three staples in Commander that are within the budget here. Scion of the Ur-Dragon, Utvara Hellkite and Lathliss, Dragon Queen are Dragon upgrades. Dragon Tempest has powerful effects with Dragons. Elemental Bond is good repeatable draw with Dragons.

Ketria Triome and Raugrin Triome are the other two Triomes and Ketria is good in combination with Indatha Triome with Skyshroud Claim which can give you all five colors from two Triomes. Nature's Lore is another land ramp spell that can search for a Forest Triome or Forest Shock land. Crop Rotation is a land tutor for any land and puts the land onto the battlefield. Haven of the Spirit Dragon is another Rainbow land for Dragons.

Cards to consider cutting:

Thassa, Deep-Dwelling as a second copy of Conjurer's Closet. If you run Extraplanar Lens you should swap your islands to Snow-Covered Island so as not to give the other blue players a mana advantage as well. I'd recommended against running Dissipation Field as I find it has opposite the intended effect and incentivizes your opp's to attack you so they can re-cast/etb for value.

Perhaps this has been discussed before, but how viable would a 5-color deck of a similar style be? Playing green and blue might increase your threat level, but you'd have access to: Propaganda, Reins of Power, Sudden Substitution, Collective Restraint, Gahiji, Honored One, Marisi, Breaker of the Coil, Illusionist's Gambit, Dissipation Field, Aura Thief, Narset's Reversal, Ohran Viper, Elephant Grass and more. Maybe O-Kagachi, Vengeful Kami as commander?

I would suggest more cards to keep you safe. Because you have two creatures cards like Propaganda (which got a reprint) and Dissipation Field

and the Saheeli, Sublime Artificer to build an incidental board state

"Hug It Out" ? "We love you to death" ?

Four colors means your build options are actually pretty diverse, tho group hug is always at least a sub-theme. I run a landfall deck with them, so Tatyova, Benthic Druid, Sakura-Tribe Scout, and landfall triggers in addition to group hug. Recently added Chulane, Teller of Tales for landfall but also more card draw.

If you go heavy on draw with group hug stuff like Temple Bell / Dictate of Kruphix / Well of Ideas but also cards like Rhystic Study and Consecrated Sphinx, you can potentially win out of nowhere with Psychosis Crawler and to a lesser extent Chasm Skulker.

If you want more group hug stuff, there's no end of enchantments (Aurification, Fight or Flight, Dissipation Field) and artifacts. (and you can put Zedruu the Greathearted in there!) Lots of new-ish group hug cards like Coveted Jewel that get passed around the table.

Lastly, since you're currently emphasizing 'attack them not me' cards like Edric and Gahjji, I'd consider Marisi, Breaker of the Coil and staple cards like Assault Suit. Obviously, Marisi is a little more aggressive / less group hug... If you want to go that route you could throw in Dictate of the Twin Gods or similar.

Happy brewing!

Fleda on Bruna, Light of Absolution

Just looking there are a few cards that jump out at me (again, feel free to ignore anything said here)

Dissipation Field - Ideally you want to be stopping things from hitting you, not stopping them from hitting you again. It's a neat card, but possibly one that could be cut.

Lavinia, Azorius Renegade - I don't know your meta, so I can't speak to much, but how many cards is Lavinia stopping?

Jace Beleren - There are better draw spells at three. There are better card drawing planeswalkers at three. If you want a similar card Narset, Parter of Veils find control pieces and auras better than Jace.

Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip - Your deck is light on instants and sorceries, might be hard to get the intended value out of Jace.

There are other sideways upgrades that can be made. If you really want to find room for that Windfall, Mulldrifter is sorta doing the same thing, for example. Any of your control pieces can be come any other control pieces (Karmic Justice could go in for any other removal card).

If you're looking for more pillow I'm always a fan of Dissipation Field - it really works well against Purphoros, God of the Forge et. al. I also like including Maze of Ith or cards like it to discourage people from paying the tax to hit you with something big. Lastly I really like Sun Droplet to help recover from incidental damage (especially if you're only getting hit from one side because of your cmdr)

Thanks for the comment, GrinningGrebe!

I knew about this interaction, but there's a low chance to actually be forced to bounce Talisman of Dominance and Underground River back to my hand, since I can always circumvent the problem by tapping them for colourless. As a two colours deck, I have a small chance to be actually colour screwed, so I can "afford" losing colour from those two aforementioned cards.

Regarding ETB creatures, it's true, I am kind of helping my opponents. Anyways, in my playgroup, when I have Dissipation Field on the board, I rarely get attacked, unless the attack itself it's lethal. So I guess I'm being lucky?

Propaganda on the other hand, whilst being a stronger card, gave me the opposing result, often getting me killed faster. Anyways, it is a good substitute for the Field, so I'd recommend swapping it around if you can (and your playgroup doesn't kill if you play it).
