Yes. Siege Rhino returns to your control during the very last step of your opponent's turn. That means you control it when your turn begins and you untap everything. Mesmeric Orb will trigger.

My opponent has Mesmeric Orb on the battlefield. On his turn he casts Kari Zev's Expertise, takes control of my Siege Rhino and attacks me.

Question is, on my upkeep do I have to mill a card due to Mesmeric Orb once Siege Rhino is returned to me?

casual_competitive thanks for the upvote!

Unsure why Mesmeric Orb didn't make the cut. It is, after all, one of my favorite mill cards to use. I may remove the Thrumming Stone mechanic and focus more on the static mill and counterspells. This will give me room for a few more wanted considerations:

Trophy Mage- for tutoring Isochron Scepter or Mesmeric Orb.

And perhaps a couple Jaces I have sitting in my collection unused.

Look for an update soon, and play hard, friends.

If you're looking for inspiration I've got my list here: Emry Forgeworks [cEDH Primer].

And firrlo's list is here: Emry, Lurker of the Loch cEDH.

I've played a couple hundred games of Emry in competitive settings at this point and these lists have been the best performers. No matter how you slice it Emry isn't ever going to be better than tier 3 or 4, but my list has posted a fairly solid 22-23% win rate that's on par with things like Consultation Kess or various Zur based strategies to give you an idea of the kind of company Emry is in when it comes to competitive settings.

One major recommendation I can make is to give an Emry deck some way to avoid being locked out of the game due to meta graveyard hate and commander theft effects. Part of the reason I shied away from Mesmeric Orb lines is that including too much focus on reanimation elements is a flaw in deck construction technique that's pretty easy to take advantage of in competitive settings. There's only so many tools available in mono blue so in the end an Emry deck just can't have it all, but she's still very capable in the most competitive settings.

No Mesmeric Orb ?? Also Grindstone has a same affect as Sphinx's Tutelage as when they now mill four, only 2 cards need to match in colour to repeat the process. against mono colour decks, short of hitting multiple lands one draw/activation can kill a player.

Mesmeric Orb can help with your self mill strategy.

I see you have this marked as Help, what type of feedback are you looking for?
