Mind Twist Discussion

Vengeful Pharaoh was originally in the deck but it's a 5 drop and I don't really have any discard outlets. originally I was running stuff like Mind Twist, Sadistic Hypnotist, etc but I decided just squatting isn't really enough to be considered a chair. With no reliable way to get it in the yard and it being a 5 drop triple black, I decided to cut it. It was one of my last cuts. I didn't even consider Marchesa's Decree, that's a good one, I'll have to find room for it. Also didn't think about the Demonic Tutor, the only ones I have are revised so the Duel Deck art didn't even occur to me lol. I'll probably add that if I can get my hands on one. There's also Diabolic Tutor with the snakes on the alter but I don't think that should really count either. Throne of the God-Pharaoh was also originally in the deck but I ended up cutting it because I don't have one and also I don't think I'd really do all that much. It might though. I think it's one of those cards that'd either be really good or really bad. I like it in mana dork decks but idk about something like this. Didn't even know Sorceress Queen was a thing. definitely need to make room for that one. I'm at work so I can't tinker right now but I'll have to shift some stuff around. Thanks! =D

smackjack Unless you're counting the Masterpiece, which nobody ever does, they're too rare, the last time it was reprinted was 2 years ago. It's still pretty expensive.
What we need is Mind Twist at common.

Permafrost Orb of Dreams is a huge play maker in this deck with Amulet of Vigor effectively slowing the game to where i gain massive advantages. Sidisi was originally in my list of cards to add to this deck and may still get into the deck. I may remove Thoughtseize as it has done its job in the prototype of this deck, and can now be removed. Amulet/Orb is something that helps me out with the placing of a Golgari Rot Farm in the deck (to be announced). This weekend I'll be implementing a new card or two into the deck, mainly from my sideboard into mainboard. The Abyss and Nether Void make there way into the deck now. Along with this, I'm throwing in Torment of Hailfire as a win condition. Hymn to Tourach is extremely beneficial when playing the political game (like my LGS does) but I definitely see where it can come out. Especially if I want to play cards like Mind Twist some time in the future. Mind Shatter will be hitting this decks mainboard tonight as well to cripple big threat decks.Garruk Wildspeaker or Nissa, Worldwaker? I think Nissa wins a place in this deck over Garruk as she can fetch the basics (If i dont already have all my basics in play) I find that I should be adding an effect like Seedborn Muse into the deck as well to gain advantage over the board in stacking.I did consider Epic Struggle for this deck, however felt it would be too slow. With the mana acceleration, I also considered Omnath, Locus of Mana as a hard beater but determined that he was more of a situational card that does nothing for the mana that he hordes. It's been determined that this kind of deck does not like to leave mana open during players turns.
Arbor Elf why remove Arbor? It untaps a forest that may be needed to get pieces. It actually helped me win a game last night. lol (I was land screwed)

Beautiful deck. Seriously. Its like a time machine. It even reminds me of that time of the game's development when land destruction was a common deck archetype. I built this kind of deck back then, but commander didn't exist yet. Got a few ideas too.... If the bank isn't broke yet it would be so epic if you could get a Nether Void in there. Also Scroll Rack could be awesome since you have limited card draw options available. Surely you are looking for a beta Demonic Tutor already, so good luck with that ;) Mind Twist, Hypnotic Specter and Hymn to Tourach all hit lands sometimes too. Shatterstorm kills mana rocks pretty good, and you don't run too many artifacts yourself. Power Matrix is the original equipment, it could make your little LD dorks into little threats. Cursed Scroll for repeatable removal and damage. Jeez what a fun deck, I wish I could see it in real life. Happy gathering!!

Hey again, I really like Kambal and I love the idea of doing an enchantress deck with him. As a Zur player, I'm pretty familiar with what's available in a black and white enchantments deck.
Return to Dust is amazing at getting rid of annoying permanents, going two-for-one on a 4-drop is nuts.
Last I checked, Mind Twist hasn't been banned in either 1v1 Commander format. It just kinda ends games by itself, it's hard to overstate just how difficult it is to recover from getting hit by this.
Thoughtrender Lamia will put serious pressure on your opponent's hand, especially if it comes out turn 6.
Phyrexian Totem is a really strong finisher once you've dominated an opponent's field or wiped the board.
Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is underrated in multicolor decks. With all the enchantments you'll be getting out, huge devotion is all but guaranteed.
Sunblast Angel can leave you at a huge advantage. It's not uncommon to remove someone's whole field with this.
BONUS: After wiping the board, all your pin-down auras will go away with the creatueres, Replenish get's them all back, along with any other enchantments your opponents have removed.
