Mind's Dilation


Whenever an opponent casts his or her first spell each turn, that player exiles the top card of his or her library. If it's a nonland card, you may cast it without paying its mana cost.

Hi I'm back, I don't know I've you seen Mind's Dilation with a counter spell or other instant in your hand you can maximize your draw buy cast on opponents turns too!

Consider Mind's Dilation. It synergizes wonderfully with Rashmi, as it will net you at least one spell cast off of almost every turn, even if you do end up tapped out or empty-handed yourself.

I tested out Stolen Strategy a little on Xmage and wasn't impressed. I generally found the cards I got (When they weren't lands) were never really synergetic with my game plan or conducive with what I wanted to do. I would expect it also has that aura of annoyance similar to Mind's Dilation or Etali, Primal Storm where the other players get increasingly irritated that you are stealing their stuff.

Maybe it says something about myself as well that I don't like the idea of casting and filling up my board with 'cloggy' or random good-stuff cards - ones that I haven't debated over for hours to put in my 99 and fit into what my deck wants to do.

I might just be overthinking all of this though...

Can't edit my previous post, not sure why I had Mind's Dilation in thought...I replaced Divine Intervention for Approach of the Second Sun. Would still love to see the most competitive variant of this build though!

Love this deck!!! I've swapped Divine Intervention for Mind's Dilation.

Would you kindly be able to provide the list for the most competitive variant? I'm assuming you'd add the new enchantress card from Core 19, in addition to the Omniscience+labman package?

Thada Adel, Acquisitor seems great for this. Also Mind's Dilation for late game. I have a Boros-colored deck built around stealing creatures and Flinging them at you with Brion Stoutarm that might have some other options for you: Mine-on Stoutarm, like Stolen Strategy for instance.

RedUndead40 on Help me with a "Play ...

I want to run a deck that is all effects like Etali, Primal Storm, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Mind's Dilation, every clone known to man, etc.

First off, who should be my commander? I was thinking Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder for the colors and the "free spells" aspect. Any other suggestions? Is Sen Triplets the only good white spell in this aspect? Or are there others that could push me into 5 color?

And other cool effects besides the ones I mentioned that I should include?

Here is what I have so far:

Stop Hitting Yourself v.2

All tips appreciated!
