Mind Control Discussion

KalamMekhar on reality acid bounce

How about Control Magic over Mind Control? Both do exactly the same thing. Also, you could include Dream Stalker and Kor Skyfisher as they have the bounce effect. And Heliod's Pilgrim will let you your for the Acid. All in all, interesting deck. +1 from me.

Looks pretty good just a couple of suggestions.

Have you considered the card Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker? In addition to being on theme he is the second half to an infinite combo already in your deck. If you use him to make a token copy of Zealous Conscripts, the token trigger can be used to gain control of and untap your kiki-jiki to make another token to untap kiki to..... Until you make an infinite amount of tokens with haste.

A lot of the cards in the deck are 1-ofs. This means the deck might be a bit more unreliable as there may only be a single copy of the card you need to draw. If you're just starting out and don't have as many cards dont worry about it but as you pick up more, ask yourself what cards you would want to have in your hand most often and add extra copies of them to the deck. (the one caveat to this is to be careful with legends, planeswalkers and high mana cost cards so they don't end up stranded in your hand).

Also Control Magic is not modern legal. The closest things that are are Sower of Temptation, Threads of Disloyalty, and Mind Control.

Some more Suggestions to the ones of dudualdo42:

Abduction, Confiscate, Control Magic, Dominate, Mind Control, Treachery, etc.)

Beguiler of Wills and Willbreaker are worth a look at too, if you ask me.

Maybe you can include Shrewd Negotiation for some shenanigans? Maybe to give the opponent a tapped Mana Vault, Steel Golem or something disruptive?

Found even more:

Chromeshell Crab, Dream Leash, Persuasion

Mind Control is a good card but I'm not sure that it helps to deal with aggro decks. I would replace it with something that fits Mill theme. Sphinx's Tutelage for example. I also use Startled Awake  Flip in my mono-U mill. Good luck!

Mesmeric Orb would synergize well with Mana Leak, put these in over Traumatize.

Something to consider since you're spell heavy is Psychic Spiral for MB and Surgical Extraction for the sideboard.

Mind Control is cool late game but seems too expensive. How about more removal/disruption through Vapor Snag or perhaps Voyage's End, cheap and still gets the job done.

Nice list. +1

nice deck!

if you are going for the copying route, you may want to splash in green and add Progenitor Mimic, taking out some of the Mind Controls maybe. just a suggestion.

+1 for sure!

No Blatant Thievery or other effects like Mind Control or Control Magic?

Mind Control is cool but a strictly worse version of Control Magic. Since you don't have any format restrictions I'd advise you to make the change ;)

(Also, Soul Ransom is a cool one :) )
