Hive Mind Discussion

HarrisonHarry on Zedruu's Chaos

1 day ago

I want to build a EDH group hug deck built around Zedruu the Greathearted that is not quite supposed to win. I will have group hug cards like Ghirapur Orrery and Otherworld Atlas. But I want to create chaos in the game with cards like Goblin Spymaster, Dismiss into Dream, Noble Benefactor, Forced Fruition, Keldon Firebombers, Hive Mind, Rite of the Raging Storm just to name a few, does anyone know of anymore?

Have you considered Pact of Negation?

Aside from being a last resort, 0-cmc counterspell, if it's paired with Hive Mind you can kill all non-blue players..for no mana at all

In addition to what other people mentioned, it's important to not just make people like you, but encourage people to do things other than attack you. I've been in games where people will thank me, but then turn on me later. If you include cards like Edric, Spymaster of Trest or Orzhov Advokist there's extra incentive to attack someone else.

For me a large part of group hug decks is getting political. By this i mean you help out people in exchange for them helping you and helping take out other player you deem scary. You can go beyond that and directly barter with people too. Telling people you will use your Phyrexian Splicer, Duelist's Heritage, or Power Matrix if they attack someone other than you is always nice.

If however you want to stay truly group hug and ignore the political aspect of it, i'd add more ways to directly give people more options with cards like Wishmonger, Intellectual Offering, Benevolent Offering, Sylvan Offering, Collective Voyage, Tempt with Discovery, Tempt with Reflections, Alliance of Arms.

The advocate creatures are also pretty nice. They have a benifit to you (or an oponnt if you feel generous) and return cards from your opponents graveyard back to their hands: Forcemage Advocate, Nullmage Advocate, Pulsemage Advocate, Shieldmage Advocate and Spurnmage Advocate.

Avacyn, Guardian Angel can also help your opponents or save yourself if needed. (vigilance is also nice cause you can still attack someone if needed)

Forced Fruition is a wierd one (they draw the cards whether they want to or not)

You mentioned in your last comment you said you really enjoy ridiculous decks. While it isnt exactly group hug, Knowledge Pool, Eye of the Storm and Hive Mind fit that description pretty well.

Love-in-Theory on Draw til you die

Love Nekusar! He's a lot of fun to play.

Fate Unraveler

Spiteful Visions would be great here.

Teferi's Puzzle Box is an Auto-include .

I'd add more wheels like


Dark Deal

Winds of Change

Wheel of Fortune

If you decide to go a more wheel route, I personally like Hive Mind. There's potential to kill everyone with just one wheel. Windfall x4? GG

frusciante7 on How to deal with Liliana ...

Funny I worked on a similar build when Experiment was spoiled. However, I think the Platinum Emperion use of Experiment is stronger. Hence why I never even considered building the deck

I run Pact of the Titan and Hive Mind for extra combos.

You could still run Leyline of Sanctity as it shuts down Liliana's minus ability, 8-rack, burn, storm and ad nauseam. No artifact so no worries with Experiment.

Entrei thanks for the tips.

I know i'm low on rocks, but it wasn't a problem yet where I play (there is a store next to my house and every wednesday is Multiplayer EDH day).

Hive Mind MUST be in this list. A "wheel" in a 4 men game will be fantastic!! Thank you!

GS10 on By all means, draw

3 weeks ago

@Entrei, I've seen your list, that's probably what made me feel more confident about my own.

Fevered Visions pulled more than its weight in the games I've played, its more draw and more damage for everyone else. It deals 3 damage per turn to everyone elsemost of the times, for just 3 mana, while Spiteful Visions, for instance, costs more and damages me as well.

As for Guttersnipe and Kami of the Crescent Moon you are probably right, I ended up getting more value from using them for chump blockers than their abilities.

I tried to bring myself to go the infect route as well, but since that's a grey zone that most people get salty about, I decided not to. (And even so they didn't enjoy losing to the deck)

I'll probably give Hive Mind, Elder Mastery and even Forced Fruition a try in my next game, but otherwise I feel like the deck is pretty solid given my playgroup, even overpowering them a bit too much at times, so probably any changes should improve my survivability rather than my overall raw power.

Thanks a lot for your insights, they mean a lot!
