Mind Control Discussion

While you have a solid base, I would recommend some changes. Some of the clone/steal affects like Clever Impersonator and Phantasmal Image, Beguiler of Wills, Annex, Roil Elemental, ect, are just expensive and don't exactly contribute towards your core strategy. I would replace those with Foundry Inspector, Palladium Myr, Padeem, Consul of Innovation, Unwinding Clock, Shimmer Myr, Whir of Invention, Paradox Engine, Treasure Mage, and Trophy Mage. Cards that let you take advantage of idle artifacts like Clock of Omens are fantastic, meanwhile I think Disallow and Spell Crumple are way too expensive for a counterspell. Mind Control, Persuasion, and Control Magic are just straight up bad cards, and Part the Waterveil doesn't exactly belong here either. Copy Artifact is great, but I think for the price Mirage Mirror is better. Lands are also important in an artifact deck, and so I would recommend, Expedition Map, Buried Ruin, Urza's Tower, Urza's Mine, and Urza's Power Plant. Finally, your commander is expensive, so Swiftfoot Boots and Lightning Greaves are a must, plus they are artifacts.

If an opponent casts Emrakul, the Aeons Torn, and I have Mycosynth Lattice and Leyline of Anticipation out, does that mean I could gain control of him via Memnarch, Mind Control, Corrupted Conscience, Persuasion, etc.?

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."
