Hive Mind Discussion

Phaetion on Welcome to a World of Chaos!

5 days ago

This certainly looks interesting. I may try it out, and if I like it, I'll build it IRL with a few tweaks.

But why Cataclysm and Decree of Annihilation? I might be biased because I hate MLD, but wouldn't they be counter-intuitive in some way (like getting rid of your enchantments so there's less chaos)? And destroying lands means no one can have fun. Just my thoughts.

Oh, and I see Cruel Entertainment and Hive Mind in there. Good boy. Let us watch the world burn.

Made some swaps to fit in Helm of the Ghastlord, Curiosity, and Elder Mastery. I tried to fit in Hive Mind, but don't know what to take out for it. Any ideas?

This deck is missing its key card: Paradox Haze.

I would also recommend Timesifter and Sensei's Divining Top / Scroll Rack to take multiple turns. Mirri's Guile and/or Sylvan Library if you want to have enchantments fix your top instead.

Other suggestions are as follows:

  • Wheel of Sun and Moon: Allows for easier recursion of your enchantments. It's also an enchantment (winky face)
  • Hive Mind: While this is generally a bad idea unless the deck is focused around it, I can safely say that if you cast Enduring Ideal with it out, then they also HAVE to cast it. That can utterly ruin your opponents.
  • Privileged Position / Sterling Grove: With Greater Auramancy, having 2+ of these will make it so only a Cyclonic Rift or Mycosynth Lattice + Hurkyl's Recall or Worldpurge or the general board wipe will truly get rid of your board.
  • Spirit of Resistance: Beats aggro and a lot of combo decks.
  • Gift of Immortality: On Child of Alara for all the fun. Could add in a Necrotic Plague to make it so you constantly board wipe and keep Child of Alara in your graveyard so they have to keep re-picking her.
  • And now, the copy spells you might've missed or didn't have room for:
  • Strionic Resonator, Fork, Twincast, and Wild Ricochet.

    (Strionic Resonator copies the trigger of "At the beginning of the upkeep".)

    As for cutting. That's the area of expertise I am unfortunately horrid. Best of luck!

    Also, for killing people faster, Hive Mind has an absurd interaction with wheels, and Mizzix's Mastery allows you to recast a bunch of wheels if needed.

    Ooh, interesting! :) I tried to build something like this once, though it never fully came together.

    My first thoughts for additions would be Braids, Conjurer Adept, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Gather Specimens, Cultural Exchange, Reins of Power, Propaganda, Control Magic, Knowledge Pool, Hive Mind, and Eye of the Storm (if you really hate other people).

    In terms of 1-to-1 card swaps, I'd normally prefer to play Aethersnatch or Commandeer over Desertion :)

    I generally don't like Frost Titan as a finisher. Your finishers are stolen from your opponents anyway.

    Rings of Brighthearth seems weird here. Is there a combo (beyond Basalt Monolith) that I'm unaware of?

    And finally, I'm hesitant to give advice like this, but I might try running Braids, Conjurer Adept as your commander instead. It'll give you more reliable targets for your copy effects :)

    Can I tag you for some help on a new deck I'm trying out? :)

    You are correct, I concede to you.

    It's a confusing interaction, because Overload is a text-changing effect, which is NOT a copyable characteristic. For example, if I cast Pyroblast, then cast Alter Reality to replace the word "blue" with the word "green," then Reverberate the pyroblast, the copy will still say blue, not green.

    However, Overload is ALSO an alternative cost, which IS a copyable characteristic, and is therefore seen by the Hive Mind.

    I should have read to the end of the discussion I was using. My bad.

    The Oracle text on Nivix Guildmage suggests you copy the Overload. I don't see why Hive Mind would be different.

    The important part seems to be that the spell knows it's been cast overloaded, and so do the copies.

    I'll cite this other Salvation conversation that goes over it with any of the necessary rules.

    Don't forget about a nifty Radiate! I've seen someone Chaos Warp and then Radiate it. I can only imagine what would happen if everyone choose to do that with Hive Mind out.
