Mind Control Discussion

I've seen a couple of those before, MagicalHacker, namely Hall of Gemstone and Grip of Chaos, but Primal Order looks like a sweet card against all these 5-color and Atraxa, Praetors' Voice decks in my meta, especially since I don't want to buy a Blood Moon. Also, Ritual of the Machine is like the black Mana Tithe- no one expects Mind Control from the mono black deck!

Control Magic is strictly better than Mind Control as it costs less to cast. Might be worth making that substitution.

Cool deck; though with a budget constraint that's slightly higher, I think it can be improved upon. Cards I'd add, would be some additional steal-creatures like Empress Galina, Memnarch and Roil Elemental. I think cards like Control Magic and Mind Control should also be in here (and Treachery, if you can get one).

Next I'd add some cheaper (in terms of CMC), more effective card draw options like Ponder, Preordain and Rhystic Study.

Also, I'd try make this deck even more reactionary than it already is by adding cards like Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir, Leyline of Anticipation and/or Vedalken Orrery. Make people afraid to attack you by stealing attackers from them (or your allies).

Last, but not least, I think Blade of Selves would look absolutely brutal on Keiga.

Cards I'd remove to make room for all of this: mostly cards that are either less powerful than some of the ones I just mentioned OR cards that do the same thing but have a higher CMC. Some examples: Saheeli's Artistry, Tempt with Reflections, Vesuvan Shapeshifter, Vizier of Many Faces, Curse of Verbosity and Mulldrifter.

Happy gaming!

because commander is a singleton format, the legend rule only really matters for effects like Clone or Mind Control.

I've had games where multiple players have played a Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth ... but multiple copies are mostly superfluous... so im confused as to your question.

They get to choose whether it returns to the command zone.

The rule for commanders is that if they would go anywhere other than the battlefield, you can choose to instead put them back into the command zone. This includes when they aren't on the battlefield (e.g. if it is returned to your hand and then discarded). This does not include stealing effects such as Mind Control or Blatant Thievery.

Look at the first example... "Alex casts Mind Control on bianca's Assault Griffin... If Bianca leaves the game, so does assault griffin and mind control is put into Alex's graveyard."

I like it. If you want to go true "steal your stuff" I would suggest finding a way to add in stuff like Praetor's Grasp, Bribery, Acquire, Treachery, Mind Control, Control Magic, Domestication, Corrupted Conscience, and Fool's Demise. Before I made my grixis deck I was going to go Grixis steal your stuff so I do have some thoughts. Plus cards like Act of Treason which you can attack with thier creature, then sacrifice them to Ashnod's Altar which could trigger Dictate of Erebos (or Grave Pact).

Any reason Nicol Bolas, Planeswalker isn't in here? All Grixis decks can use him haha.
