Mindleech Mass

Creature — Horror


Whenever Mindleech Mass deals combat damage to a player, you may look at that player's hand. If you do, you may play a nonland card in it without paying that card's mana cost.

Maybe you could do an +1/+1 counters version of aristocrats with Undying and cards like Epochrasite ... basically sacrifice them into a powerful engine before the end of everyone's turn.

Or... (here's one): Insurrection , Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Diluvian Primordial could be a "I play your cards" betrayal theme:

You can cut the lockets, they are way too slow in EDH when there are better budget options. Echo Storm isn't that great as well. Mind's Desire is cool but in the current deck build you'll probably copy it only once and that's a waste of mana. Reversal of Fortune is also quite high on the CMC when you already have something similar on the lower side like Spelltwine as well as Memory Plunder . Stolen Identity is also high on the CMC curve and would cut. Treasure Keeper is a one time use and it's dies trigger effect is meh, would cut. Chancellor of the Spires is cool but as again high CMC cost there are better option like Diluvian Primordial which you have, plus triple blue in a three color deck is extensive. Mindleech Mass colors are a bit extensive and there are better options.

Hope that helps!

I mean Inkwell Leviathan generally does a pretty good job of smashing face while being slightly difficult to deal with. Lord of the Void is also fun, as is Mindleech Mass .

Maybe, instead of the 2x Mindleech Mass, and a few of the 4+ converted mana cost spells, you could add in some ramp, to allow you to consistently cast your bigger spells? Some Dimir Signets wouldn't go amiss! Plus, they're not the priciest cards, at around 80 cents each. In addition, if you're planning on adding a side board, Negate, Despise, and Duress all help combat some of the faster combo decks.

Mindleech Mass was in here, but during testing I just never really wanted to cast it. Shimian Specter is good if I run into an Athreos, God of Passage + Shadowborn Apostle deck (it was everywhere after the Command Zone episode and it was driving me insane. Luckily the deck has died down now). Doomsday Specter sounds interesting, and I love Kheru Mind-Eater. Glasses of Urza could be interesting, it would allow me to see if I wanted a certain opponent to discard their hand.


It's all good, I just remind people because I've posted and haven't been commented on before. I totally understand, I've done it too.

I've been on the fence about It That Betrays for a while, but Vaevictis Asmadi, the Dire cannot be in the deck due to the green symbol in its mana cost.

Thanks for letting me know about Last Word in the land slot, I have no idea how it happened and probably wouldn't have noticed.

Thanks for the suggestions guys! You've given me a lot to think about (and thanks for not saying anything about Dragon Tempest, it gets annoying have to explain why that is in here sometimes)!

Hey, I play a similar deck in esper that tries to control the opponent's hands. Some cards I play in it are: Silent-Blade Oni, Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Mindleech Mass, Ghastlord of Fugue, Shimian Specter, Doomsday Specter, Kheru Mind-Eater, Rootwater Thief, Head Games and Glasses of Urza. Maybe some of those cards would also work in your deck. Also Mindclaw Shaman.

Also Nightveil Specter and Mindleech Mass are both really fun spelljack cards, and also a little milling.

I have a very similar Lazav commander deck, and its one of my absolute favorites. There are very few things I enjoy more in magic than turning people's down decks against them.

Some other cards that you might have fun with:

Raiders' Wake - Make all those discard cards deal damage

Fleet Swallower - Traumatize on a creature

Memory Plunder - Steal spells from graveyards

Mindleech Mass and Silent-Blade Oni - Steal cards from hands
