Magus of the Mind Discussion

Bastaba on Taigam, Serene Spellslinger

Neither of the two minds are great, but they are always fun to get off. They usually don't net me too many spells though. I think Magus of the Mind probably works a bit better, but if you have a lot of mana, Mind's Desire really bats! Rise from the tides usual nets me around 5-6 zombies which is okay for me, but I have tried getting 2x10 zombies once, which won me the game.

Sorry for the late answer, I haven't been to active the last couple of weeks.

lol it's Mind's Desire not Mind's Dilation, though they look, sound, and play similarly. How does Mind's Desire work for you? Don't get too many duds or anything with counterspells or irrelevant stuff? And which is better, Mind's Desire or Magus of the Mind? Desire is a spell itself that would be great to rebound with all the other stuff you cast with it that could be rebound, but Magus' ability costs only one, meaning you can stack a lot more spells with him. I'm thinking of throwing one or the other in my Taigam deck Ojutai's Mystification because it also kinda runs in a storm fashion. And in this build, how many tokens does Rise from the Tides net you? I took it out because it didn't give me enough :/

Hey etapollo13. Thanks for the in depth response! I agree with a lot of what you said and may wind up trying out Magus of the Mind after reading yours and other people's comments. I have a decently fast combo oriented list and if you ever want to collaborate on some aspects of a build or need help with cuts / additions, I would be happy to help. Cheers.

I've been working on an Inalla list for a long time and I've been making cuts constantly. If you wouldn't mind, could I ask about some specific cards you're using and why?

Lastly, 38 lands seems like quite a lot. Are you able to move through your deck quickly enough to avoid bricking?

I would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for your time in advance!
