Mind Shatter Discussion

I would reconsider your manabase. Mutavault can be great, but you are so devotion heavy it could really hinder you casting your spells. And Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx definitely enables the big mana, but I don't see where you're making use of that at all. I would either cut them, or include some spells that thrive on big mana (Consume Spirit, Mind Shatter, etc)
Other than that, I'd want more removal. I've had good results with Funeral Charm, as it can do double duty. Gatekeeper of Malakir seems great, especially given the Panharmonicon synergy.

Wrench Mind and Distress are both already in there ;) Mind Shatter was in until last revision, there I decided to go with Damnable Pact because I got already 16 discard spells but no drawing mechanics. With an 1.4 CMC deck it's troubleing to keep my hand staffed. Even if my hand stays full I now can make the opponent draw and loose life, which is nice imho.

Mind Shatter might be more erratic with opponents hand instead of Damnable Pact. And Wrench Mind would do more harm than Distress

The SB looks pretty solid. I would swap the Feast of Dreams out for some Hero's Downfall to catch those pesky Planeswalkers when they show up. I love the Waste Not idea. With all the discard that your opponents will do, you should be able to get a lot of value from that. I think 2x Waste Not for 2x Mind Shatter is a huge value upgrade.

I've only run a few tests online. I think that Mind Shatter might be less useful than I thought it was in here, especially having Dark Deal. Having multiple out of Underworld Dreams and Liliana's Caress has created major havoc a few times! I'm going to try as you suggest and take out a Damnation and stick in another Damnable Pact. Taking out the two Mind Shatter, maybe Waste Not would be a good addition into here?

As for a sideboard, I have a few ideas...

2 Ensnaring Bridge

2 Nihil Spellbomb

2 Smallpox

3 Drown in Sorrow

2 Feast of Dreams

2 Go for the Throat

2 Smother

Basically just cards to swap in case the opponent has a buttload of small creatures, as well as Ensnaring Bridge in case there are some big ones. I am totally up for suggestions though. I can't believe I hadn't started deck building before now...THIS IS SO MUCH FUN!!!

Hi there! Nice brew. Mind Twist is banned from Tiny (and rightfully so), a Mind Shatter is not a bad alternative. I also recommend a Geier Reach Sanitarium to force the opponent to discard even if he doesnt have anything in hand.

Also, could you check out my version of this deck? Wouldn't mind some comments or thoughts:

Weirdhat I like Illness in the Ranks and Virulent Plague but the problem with those is they will hurt my own zombie tokens(Grave Titan starts to amass and army pretty quick) /faeries tokens (when i finally get around to adding Bitterblossom while Bileblight can one shot a persons whole field and can be bought back with my commanders should the need arise a second time. I don't really like Thoughtseize because in a multiplayer game with 3-4 people usually taking 1 card wont really swing the game in anyone's direction vs using Mind Twist or Mind Shatter I can hit a persons entire hand really damaging them. I have been having really good results with Mindslicer bc usually no one will block/kill it bc it will hurt everyones hand and with all my draw cards + tutors i can refill my hand quickly so it doesn't bother me much. I might take out Contamination until I get Bitterblossom but if anything its kind of like time walk as if it is only out for 1 turn for each player and unless they play black they just draw pass.

Okay, so the two Mind Shatter and one Disfigure came out for three Innocent Blood. When I get my mainboard solidified, I'll start building a sideboard, and that's where I'll put the Languish or some other wrath type effect.
