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.

It will allow you to play anything in hand at the time of casting the spell. It will work like how Mind's Dilation ignores permissions based on card type unless they go back and change the ruling on that card.

It is a really great Enchantress build. Some suggestions: Copy Enchantment gives more utility. Leyline of Anticipation lets you play reactively. Burgeoning should be included, because it lets you put all lands you draw with Mesa Enchantress and friends on the battlefield - and you draw a lot in this deck. Duelist's Heritage is a great political card, since you can give double strike to your opponents' creatures to take someone out. Aura Thief+High Market combo nicely with Enchanted Evening. You may also try Solemnity. It comboes with Phyrexian Unlife (you can't die since you can't have poison counters), Lost Auramancers (that can be immediately killed with High Market to bring Decree of Silence so no one but you can play Magic), Glen Elendra Archmage (counter all noncreature spells your opponents cast), Glacial Chasm (never be attacked again), Mystic Remora (free draws throughout the game). Collective Restraint is another Propaganda effect that comboes with Shock Lands and Prismatic Omen. // Have you tried Tuvasa the Sunlit as the commander and Mind's Dilation instead of Sunbird's Invocation? Tuvasa is a enchantress and finisher on the command zone that can be recast at least 2 times before being expensive. Also, a 3-color mana base is way smoother than a 4-color one. You can even run less taplands to chain a turn 1 Wild Growth or Utopia Sprawl or Birds of Paradise or Burgeoning into a turn 2 Tuvasa the Sunlit. // If you want to stick to Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis, you can put Tuvasa the Sunlit in the 99. Fertile Ground can help you reach K&T on turn 3 (land enchantments are better than land ramp in this deck, since they can draw you cards with an enchantress even in late game). Nature's Lore also can guarantee K&T on turn 3. You might also consider Selesnya Sanctuary, Azorius Chancery and Simic Growth Chamber - K&T can put them on the battlefield at end of your turn, so you don't lose tempo. Blasphemous Act is a great boardwipe on Red. Assemble the Legion and Sacred Mesa create more tokens. Purphoros, God of the Forge, Kruphix, God of Horizons and Keranos, God of Storms are also solid.

I love Mind's Dilation. Definietly a card I wanna put in. Fits very well with the theme too! I had very little success with Worst Fear overall. The few times I did get to cast it I couldn't really do much on my opponents turn. But Cruel Entertainment does look a lot more entertaining though :D

I have pretty similar deck and I have to say, one card I've had a lot of fun with is Cruel Entertainment, but my kicker is I always have to target myself. If my two opponents realize it's in both of their interests not to screw with each other, they wont, so I target myself so we can have a bit of fun. It felt bad casting Worst Fears off of Jeleva, but CE is super fun. Mind's Dilation is also a good one.

Try adding Grozoth to grab your other 9-drops. Other than that, this deck is awesome! Expropriate, Approach of the Second Sun, and Mind's Dilation are awesome in this deck.

May I suggest Shadowblood Ridge instead of Temple of the False God. This filter land may help you pay for a turn 2-3 Vial Smasher the Fierce. Also Exotic Orchard and Shivan Reef are not expensive. You might want Ancient Excavation, Steam Augury, Fact or Fiction instead of Frenzied Fugue, Thought Scour and Extract from Darkness for fuel for Delve. Mind's Dilation, Sunbird's Invocation, Stolen Strategy, Fury Storm and Fevered Visions can often win the game by themselves. You might want some counterspells which can also be card advantage: Izzet Charm and Arcane Denial. Disdainful Stroke and Swan Song stop almost everything for cheap. Have you tried Phthisis? Bojuka Bog and Rakdos Charm are good against graveyard decks (which is a popular theme). You may also consider Brainstorm for better control of your draws.

Alright man, this deck has some real potential and I am super into it. The first things as you said is that you need to cut cards. You do not want to be running more than 100 otherwise it will weaken the whole deck. Some of my own suggestions would be Kiss of the Amesha, Vizkopa Guildmage, Elixir of Immortality, Spectral Searchlight, Karmic Justice, Victory Chimes, Blessed Alliance, Second Sunrise, Axis of Mortality and or Beacon of Immortality

My next thing I think your deck needs is a strong game ender. This is pretty much a control deck but you could really use a way to end a game when it gets down to just you and your "friend". Note most of my suggestions are trying to be as political as possible. Check out Corrupted Conscience, Paradox Haze, Cultural Exchange, Bribery, Mind's Dilation, Reins of Power, and Archfiend of Despair. These are just my own suggestions though I am super interested to see where this deck with go! Ps Celestial Dawn is just a good card in this deck.
