Mind Slash Discussion

NeverCloud on Google Ghave, Search Engine of Doom *Help Wanted*

I'm really loving the deck idea! Maybe add Yeva, Nature's Herald for a nasty surprise when you tempt them while Ob isn't out, then flash him in when they pay costs to do a search (:

-Flickerwisp Conjurer's Closet Eerie Interlude and Restoration Angel can work with creatures like Avatar of Growth to get additional procs of their ETB. There are other flicker options as well if you want to go this route.

Given the nature of your deck, adding Painful Quandary to punish people further (with Wound Reflection that's potentially 10 life paid to cast a spell) could work.

Sanguine Bond and Exquisite Blood combo is a nice alt win con, with the latter giving you more survival as you drain your opponents' life.

For your Maybeboard, looks like you have a few very separate ideas going on. I personally like the black control you've got going, so you could build more on that. Bitterblossom and Mind Slash can be a harsh combo to have out for your opponent(s), especially if you just got rid of their hands with Mindslicer.

Hope this helps!

First- Prying Blade,Gleaming Barrier, and Ruthless Knave just seems bad, even with Revel in Riches.

Sadistic Hypnotist- all your opponents lose their hands, elf triggers, good stuff. Dark Deal, more Nath triggers. Geth's Grimoire draws you crazy cards with wheels. Megrim, Liliana's Caress, Fell Specter, Raiders' Wake are all good for a discard deck. I'd throw Mind Slash in this deck too.

Since you went full discard theme got a few possible additions for ya.

The mind slash would work great because of the token production you have.

KayneMarco on Discard Enchantments

A few possible additions that would be good in this deck are:

I know you don’t have much for creatures to feed mind slash if you like it but there are plenty of token producing enchantments in esper colors that can be Zured out that do make lots of tokens to feed it.

There’s a lot more I could suggest but won’t for now. I absolutely do love the direction you’re taking this Zur deck though. Very original. +1 from me.

SynergyBuild on Commanders by Power Level [EDH Tier List]

Nath is a popular discard-stax commander, that uses Necrogen Mists, Sadistic Hypnotist, Oppression, and Bottomless Pit along with a lot of general value cards like Root Maze, Manglehorn, Chains of Mephistopheles, Nether Void, The Abyss, Magus of the Abyss, green ramp like Birds of Paradise along with colorless rocks to pump its commander and other colorless stax options out onto the field.

The list can break parity with tap/stay-tapped effects using its massive tokens swarms and Earthcraft when under the effect of its own Winter Orb, Root Maze, Static Orb, etc.

Because the deck attempts to make each player discard lots of cards, Sylvan Library, Dark Confidant, Phyrexian Altar, Library of Leng, and other effects can synergies well to break parity.

Otherwise, the deck runs a normal Golgari-Stax deck, running black-tutors to fetch the colorless silver bullets like Sphere of Resistance against non-Prossh Food Chain lists like Tazri and green to make enough mana to still win.

Other notable cards sometimes run in this strategy are Mind Slash, Cryptolith Rite, Chord of Calling (with tokens it ends up decently), fast mana to cast Nath like Mana Vault, Lotus Petal, Grim Monolith, etc.


Ishkanah is the best golgari Food Chain list in the format, with Demonic Tutor, Grim Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Imperial Seal, etc. to fetch the Chain, and to fetch Eternal Scourge there are a ton of green and black tutors.

With Delirium so easy to get between fetchlands, instants, sorceries, and Lotus Petals, Commune with the Gods and other self-mill cards milling over creatures and artifacts, etc. You can reasonably make infinite spiders with Food Chain, and if you can pay Ishkanah's cost you win.

legendofa on Discard in edh/multiplayer

I don't do competitive EDH, but discard-combo seems to work around the tables I play at; my personal favorite is Nath of the Gilt-Leaf with Sadistic Hypnotist or Mind Slash. Skull Rend is the multiplayer Blightning, and Waste Not should be a key piece. Just make sure your friend has a way to close out the game, unless he wants to be Enemy No. 1 in the next game.

Charcoal Diamond sucks dong, coming in tapped kills it.

Take a look at Carnival of Souls because you've got some life to play with

Tainted Remedy might be good if the meta gets too life-gain-y

If you want stupid high costed spells for fun I'd throw in a Worst Fears.

Mind Slash could be good to fuck up a blue player's hand.

Shadows of the Past is really good because you're constantly saccing shit for free deck digging, scry is super under-rated but in the late game you can almost guarantee a good top deck.

Bojuka Bog and Tormod's Crypt are important because you don't have a way to deal with graveyard decks like Muldrotha/Sidisi/Karador/Meren.

Leaden Myr isn't that great of a mana dork, Ogre Slumlord is okay but a lot of your sac'd creatures are tokens so I don't know how useful it'll be.

If you want another mana accelerator there's Nirkana Revenant.

Torment of Hailfire can just win you the game too.

Necropotence might be just out of your budget but boy is it a fucking good card.

Black Sun's Zenith is another boardwipe that gets around indestructible and it shuffles back in for later which is always good.

Ok, SynergyBuild, I thought about your suggestions. The biggest problem of theirs, is that these cards are good, but they don’t good enough to force me to change something in the current deck. I don’t think playing elves is good idea, because it’s not card that you want to draw or play even on turn 4 or 5. Vessel of Nascency is probably good, and I thought about it when I started to build this deck, but it’s not good enough to delete from the deck any other stuff. But you’re right about Font of Fertility - maybe I would change it to Golgari Signet or Mind Stone - its really good suggestion! And I’m interested in Mind Slash. I don’t think this card is powerful, but it’s 100% interesting to play, so, I’ll try. Anyway, thanks for your attantion and suggestions. Don’t forget to vote up if you liked my deck!
