Dissipation Field Discussion

maxon on Kami of the Rising Tides

2 weeks ago

Sorry all for the late reply. I hadn't noticed all the comments.

I actually came to this deck to make notify of some changes, for those curious.

Out: Trinket Mage, Coralhelm Commander, Deadeye Navigator, Dissolve, Aeon Chronicler, Aether Gale, Trailblazer's Boots, Soramaro, First to Dream, Mnemonic Wall

In: Forbid, Recall, Dissipation Field, Time Stop, Amnesia, Long-Term Plans, Mirror-Mad Phantasm, Ivory Tower, Kefnet the Mindful

To Leumas, yeah, Coralhelm Commander didn't do a whole lot in this deck, and has been cut. I never found myself wanting to bother with leveling it up. My initial thought was it would make for a nice flier with spare mana. Not worth it though. Chasm Skulker was in this deck before Kami was the commander, and it was fun, but with the return to hand effects I have in this deck, I either lose the counters on it, or if it's been destroyed, I lose the tokens. It's good, but not so much for this build. Ebony Owl Netsuke I do like as well, but I am specifically trying to stay away from effects like that. It's just personal preference. Quest for Ula's Temple is great too, but I don't want anyone knowing anything have in my hand, and it also suffers from my own return to hand spells like Devastation Tide. I could see Sphinx's Tutelage being in here at some point though. I will keep it in the maybeboard. Thanks!

To Love-in-Theory, you'll see I just added Kefnet the Mindful. It seems really broken for this deck, and I'm excited to see it hit the field. I like Levitation, but my deck usually doesn't swing unless I can get a little hit in, or when there is one opponent left, in which case this deck can easily defeat that last opponent after I've crafted my hand the whole game. Soramaro, First to Dream wasn't bad, but it wasn't doing a whole lot for me either. It's been cut for now. Patron of the Moon has come up minimally since I've added it, but I haven't been upset to see it, and it feels nice to be able to jettison land from my hand. Magus of the Jar I haven't really had come up too much so I can't really say one way or the other how well it's going to really work. That draw sphinx I don't really need. I could see getting it some day, but for now I'm gonna hold off.

To Trtl, I could never get rid of Thought Vessel. It's too good in this deck. The vessel is great for this deck not just because of bit of ramp but because of the no max hand size attribute. I've been suggested Library of Leng before, and I'm not sure how I feel about it. My playgroup doesn't do much in the way of wheel effects, though one of my friends was talking about making a deck with that new Locust god, and how good it would be with a bunch of wheels, so perhaps that will be a much needed inclusion in the future. I will add it to the Maybeboard. Forbid I DID just add, so that suggestion was spot on!

Rzepkanut Hey, thanks for the suggestions.

Drownyard Temple is a card that I missed, and will probably add to the list. World Queller feels too clunky and fragile (being a creature) to be on this list. It also doesn't seem to do a lot. Brago, King Eternal I might consider adding this too, although I don't really like to have too many creatures. Dissipation Field & No Mercy, possibly adding either of them. They both seem to do their job. Phyrexian Metamorph or Clever Impersonator. I don't know about these two. Sure, they might be great, but I feel that they also might be a tad bit too clunky to be played.
The 'I steal yo creatures' cards might work, but that would probably have to be Desertion in that case, since the other two doesn't feel like they add a lot to the gameplay of the deck. Sun Titan is just another creature, a strong one however. Maybe.. Crucible of Worlds would play it, if it wasn't for its huge pricetag. Ramunap Excavator is another creature. Mana Web sits in my maybeboard, and might get thrown in, depending on how my deck turns out. Displacement Wave, I've never been much for cards with costs. So this card doesn't seem so appealing to me.

Sup, nice deck! Its funny to me that I like helping design decks I would never want to play against. Anyways I have a few card suggestions for you...

Good luck and happy gathering :)

As powerful as The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale is, I think it will end up hurting you more than your opponents with how the deck currently is (24 creature count).

Other cards in the maybe board that I personally wouldn't recommend would be Desertion (I'll explain why in a sec), Isperia, Supreme Judge, and Twincast. All are good cards, but your deck can do better without them!

Deathstroke2791 on Anticipate Stick [[Tomorrow Primer]]

I know! Why does no one play Dissipation Field?! That's ok. I'll just play all of them. My opponents can have none! XD but the only issue I see with Illusionist's Gambit is it seems a little too specific. HOWEVER, I'll take some advice from a fellow mono-blue grouphug player, and put it on my list of things to try. If I were to put it in, what should I take out?

All heil Stormtide Leviathan!!

Dude! You're like my brother from another mother. This deck is dope. All Heil Stormtide Leviathan! You've convinced me on a few cards I have been thinking about adding. In particular Dissipation Field. I was thinking it might put too much of a target on my back, but like you said would be a huge investment of resources without lethal. And on that note, I advise trying out Illusionist's Gambit. I usually save this for late game if I can. It's so satisfying to not only be able to prevent damage, but force them to swing at someone else. Thanks for the suggestion of Dreamscape Artist. Seems good.

Rzepkanut on No mana for you

1 month ago

Pendrell Mists and Magus of the Tabernacle shuts off most mana dorks and token strategies. Dissipation Field is a great pillow fort card. World Queller + Drownyard Temple lets you kill the same land every turn...he also combos with Sun Titan. If you ran green sorcery based ramp instead of artifact based then Energy Flux is great. If not then Thran Dynamo could go in too. Mystic Remora is another good one. Mist of Stagnation can lock out someone if combined with gtaveyard hate like Tormod's Crypt. Happy gathering!!
