Increasing Confusion Discussion

Boza on Amonkhet Spoilers and Speculation.

Couldn't this be worded:

Dusk and Dawn

Sorcery - Rare

Destroy all creatures with power 3 or more. If this card was cast from a graveyard, return all creatures with power 2 or less to your hand instead.


You know, just borrow design from Increasing Confusion, but make it so you do not have to rotate the card.

Thanks for the suggestions. I didn't realize that Increasing Confusion even existed. I'll definitely add some of those to my deck.

Hedron Crab

Tome Scour

Increasing Confusion

Jace, Memory Adept

If milling is your win condition I suggest adding some more to make it happen faster. The more time you stall the harder it will be to stall.

This is good, +1. I would recommend adding Increasing Confusion, Glimpse the Unthinkable (You can find cheap proxys of this online), Mind Sculpt, and Tome Scour. Also, Keening Stone can mill away their entire library when used correctly with Traumatize. If you wanted to buy some more expensive stuff, try the Leyline of the Void and Helm of Obedience combo.

Solidarity of Heroes is always fun, and Increasing Confusion is a fun alternative to Bane fire, and you could always flashback same turn if it gets countered. Death's Presence helps against kill cards, and Bioshift is cool cause it can trigger protean hydra's 3rd ability.

You also can put in some Jaces: Jace Beleren, Jace, Memory Adept, and Jace, the Mind Sculptor.

Since this is mill, part of me more prefers Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger over Infinite Gyre.

Some more pure mill can be Archive Trap, Increasing Confusion, Startled Awake  Flip, Glimpse the Unthinkable, Mind Funeral, etc.

Tree of Perdition, Magister Sphinx and Sorin Markov are also both nice for cutting your opponent(s) down to size in terms of life.

Temporal Extortion could be a nice way to pressure your opponents to giving you extra turns.

If you actually want to be rude, Omniscience is your friend.

Keening stone is really nasty when paired with Traumatize. Infinite mill can be achieved with Painter's Servant and Grindstone, though they're a bit pricey. I think Increasing Confusion and Mind Grind would be good options for you too. If you like mesmeric orb, and I'm sure you do, there are a ton of ways to make copies of it (Mechanized Production from the new set looks like fun). Just make sure you get Laboratory Maniac and maybe Psychic Spiral so you don't deck yourself out.

Hope this helps.
