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.

Tiny_Sir on Azorius Daxos Artifacts?

Triple A [[Azorius Artifact Attack!]]

Hey all!

I've been moving around to deck after deck, but I always seem to come back to Azorius.

Now I love control, don't get me wrong, but I wanted to try something new with this iteration. So, I decided artifacts!

This build is mainly based around ramping with artifacts, using artifact synergies to get big battle-cruiser artifacts out, and steal out opponents things with cards such as Memnarch and Mind's Dilation .

I'd love some more budget (no more than 10$ cards) options for the deck. I'd like to make this a strong 75% deck if I could over time.


Motys on Yennett All Odds, No Evens

3 weeks ago

So first iteration of my yenett deck was put to the test. 3 games, 3 wins. Worth mentioning i'm playing only in paper and that our LGS is small and deck are rather casual (i believe strongest decks are like 6/10 in term of power). We tend to play long games. My build runs 38 lands (21 basics, 1 fetch), and 10 even cards. Cannot provide decklist yet. My build isn't very focused on single target removal. Thou i need to add some removal for enchantments/artifacts. No Future Sight, Sensei, Soothsaying. Rise of the Dark Realms, Anguished Unmaking i have in other decks.

Even cards are : Strionic Resonator (damn this one is strong), Swiftfoot Boots , some 2cmc mana rocks, Supreme Verdict , Wrath of God , Smothering Tithe (Can this get ban already?), Overwhelming Denial .

Since this is "casual", only wheel effect im running along this Smothering Tithe is Dark Deal .

Liliana Vess performed really well. I don't have Animatou. Jace, the Mind Sculptor is probably fine addition to the deck. Dream Cache is probably better than Frantic Search? Living Death is too risky in my opinion.

To protect myself and yenett i'm running packet of : Propaganda , Ghostly Prison , Sphere of Safety , Shielded by Faith , Karmic Justice , Bastion Protector

Ethersworn Adjudicator was really good in my games.

Counterspell package: Stubborn Denial , Disallow , Overwhelming Denial .

Fun's over pack : Time Warp , Temporal Mastery

Examples of odd cards im running: Herald of Leshrac , Artisan of Kozilek , Brilliant Ultimatum , Pathrazer of Ulamog , Blatant Thievery , Void Winnower , Inkwell Leviathan , Mind's Dilation , Teysa, Envoy of Ghosts , Platinum Angel , Angelic Arbiter

If You want to improve Yenett and make deck real nasty , extra turn spells are probably way to go (Nexus of Fate might be really strong). Old Ulamog and New Emrakul are also Odd cards. Magister Sphinx , Enigma Sphinx , Mother of Runes , Iona, Approach of the Second Sun can also be very good.

Hope this helps a little and i'll see another Yenett video on the channel :D

Oh, and Mind's Dilation would fit the steal theme and is a ton of fun to play

Have you tested Mind's Dilation with this deck? I wonder if it's a useful card.

Cloudius on Yennett, Fastest Topdeck in the West

BelugaWhale217 I'd personally cut the following:

Cryptolith Fragment  Flip and the 3 Cluestones - I'd opt for the Talismans instead (e.g. Talisman of Dominance since the hit the battlefield 1 turn earlier and doesn't ETB tapped (in the case of Fragment).

Baneful Omen and Mind's Dilation are both fun cards but don't usually win you games. I'd add a few more Counterspells to protect Yennett or Tutors/Card Draws to quickly reach your key cards.

Sigiled Starfish - Scry 1 ain't as impactful if the intent is to help manipulate the top of your library. I'd play Scroll Rack if you've access to the card. Penance is also a great hidden gem as it allows you to return bombs you drew from your hand to the top of the library for Yennett to do her magic.

Aqueous Form - Am assuming the intent is to enchant Yennett with this. However, with Flying and Menace, most players will have difficulty blocking her. Once again, Scry 1 doesn't allow you to dig deep into the top of your library.

My humble 2 cents, hope these helps. While we took the deck in a different direction, you can check out some of my card choices as well. Cheers.

naturesnake420 on Circu's Apathetic Sadism (Combo)

1 month ago

Right that's what I thought although I am feeling a bit more comfy on the mana side of thngs in Circu since adding Grim Monolith . My current problem is life total though as everyone seems to hate out the deck (even though I honestly think it's not that good and tell people so) so I'm a little afraid to run things like mana vault and crypt as I very often find myself beaten to 8 life on turn 5. What are your thoughts on Mind's Dilation and Painful Quandary ? I'm looking for alt wincons in the prison build as isorev and labman consultation are easy to disrupt with counterspells and things like Praetor's Grasp .
