Mind's Dilation Discussion

Artt on Vial Smasher & Kraum EDH

3 days ago

CaptSillva : no worries. I'm pleased to announce I made my own Vial Smasher // Kraum edh during this time.

some notable deviations i made from you was:Used the relevant borderpost rocks instead of lands.Mistvein BorderpostVeinfire Borderpostsince this partner commander isn't green, i also ran Surveyor's Scope. Which is another reason to run Karoo lands imo (although it's a little risky as always)

Also, it feels almost criminal you don't have Mind's Dilation listed. Wound Reflection and Exquisite Blood are worth considering for a slot too.

Beseech the Queen is a "fair tutor" that hits for 6 dmg.I added Emrakul, the Promised End for the 13 dmg roulette. Messing with combo players is just icing.

chadsansing Thanks for your feedback! I honestly don't know how I overlooked Voidslime, I guess it'll find some way in this deck. I don't intend to get too deep into counters ( Vorel of the Hull Clade ). I'm not sure if I want more clone effects, also it's VERY hard for me to put something out (the eternal struggle....). Besides, I also have a silly Biovisionary/Clone Deck, that's where all my clones are. But clones are definitely super cool!

passascats Thank you too! I guess it has, I love playing it! It really is a "good stuff" build, right? There's something of everything (simic) there, but somehow, it all works quite well together. Once I won with a Brainstorm and Psychosis Crawler out. Or I stole a huge Dragon with Mind's Dilation, then revealed a Mystic Snake for Rashmis ability, countering the original spell (which was also a huge dragon). So I got a huge Dragon and my opponent nothing, while I didn't even spent any mana. I still have to learn a thing or two about the mastery of blue though, but I'm getting there (first time playing a lot of blue). Both Vedalken Orrery and Leyline of Anticipation are great, a little pricey for my kitchen table though (just as Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir ) - but very tempting! To be honest, I'd love all my creatures to have flash ...

Also sorry for not replying to you directly, I somehow can't find the option to do so ...

@Delta-117 I'd agree that is incredible, with being my favorite

I did include Primal Amulet in my current paper list as it supports my infinite turns scheme. I haven't drawn it yet in a game but I'm excited to see what it can do.

Mind's Dilation is one I've been considering for a while now. I think I forgot about it tho haha

I would likely run Nissa, Steward of Elements if I had more creatures for her 2nd ability. The scry is neat and likely the most relevant to Rashmi's strategy

Future Sight I took out to run in my The Locust God deck for its infinite combo alongside Sensei's Divining Top and Helm of Awakening

Thanks for the comment!

Here are a few ideas:

Mind's Dilation

Future Sight

Nissa, Steward of Elements

Primal Amulet.

I love simiccolours, the colour pair definitely has to be my favorite in magic.

Hey there! Awesome deck you have here (and Maelstrom Wanderer is probably my favorite commander, so that doesn't hurt)!

I agree you need a little more mana fixing; fortunately, Green is very good at this. Kodama's Reach and Cultivate are both amazing at ramp and fixing, and Farseek, Explosive Vegetation, Skyshroud Claim, and Urban Evolution are as well (keep in mind that you can get any forest with the Claim, not just basics). Gilded Lotus is also an option.

Some other general suggestions I have for you:

Finally, I do think your mana base needs a little work. I find 37-38 lands is appropriate for a ramp-heavy deck like Wanderer, so you can certainly cut a few lands. I'd recommend the checklands (Rootbound Crag, Hinterland Harbor, and Sulfur Falls), the painlands (Karplusan Forest, Yavimaya Coast, and Shivan Reef), the shocklands (Stomping Ground, Breeding Pool, and Steam Vents), the temples (Temple of Mystery, Temple of Abandon, and Temple of Epiphany), and the fetchlands if you can afford them (Wooded Foothills, Misty Rainforest, and Scalding Tarn). Ash Barrens is also amazing due to the shuffle effect if you need it, and Frontier Bivouac is fine if you need the fixing.

Hope this helps!

Soothsaying or Mind's Dilation.

Soothsaying is just nice. While there is good arguments for better cards, it is still good in this deck.

soikindalikepandas on Ramos Cascade Flicker Storm +1/+1

2 months ago

I know it won't trigger cascade, but it will let me double up on Ramos triggers in the same turn.

Mind's Dilation and Oracle's Vault are exactly the type of cards I'm looking for!

I can't believe I didn't think of the hideaway mechanic. Mosswort Bridge is perfect! My lands tend to be where my decks lack the most.

Thanks for the help! If you have any other suggestions, I'd love to hear them.
