Mindslaver Discussion

Saw your comment on asking about wincons, so here is my deck:


Commander / EDH x12721


Some notable cards I'd have to recommend are Phantasmal Image and Blood Artist/Zulaport Cutthroat. Copying your opponent's big thing for two mana is always nice, and it's reusable. And of course, draining for everything dying is always nice. Finally, Walking Ballista is always super good, and can count as either a creature or an artifact for the turn. I have also received a pair of good suggestions from AgentJackjohn: Mindslaver and Possessed Portal.

I also have a Muldrotha deck, and 2 good cards that I use as solid wincons are Mindslaver and Possessed Portal.

Mindslaver, while a bit more expensive (money-wise not cmc), is a good recurrable way to use your opponents against each other while Possessed Portal can lock other players out of the game while you are able to function normally, since you should be able to recast your sacrificed permanents or discarded cards.

I'v also found that Dreamborn Muse is an allstar in my deck, since it lets me get more cards in the bin when I have Muldrotha out, and can also punish opponents that keep their hands too full as it has the potential to mill them out over time.

Mindslaver is fun with that much artifact recursion.

Oblivion Ring is actually normally worse unless you can abuse it because it can hit your permanents, leading to blowouts when an opponent has a Mindslaver effect or is playing Sen Triplets

Good job on keeping it 60 cards, and its good you're keeping a 24/36 land ratio. I will say, if you are wanting to reduce the $ Cost, consider cutting bribery down to 2 copies and adding some Archaeomancer. You can expand on that tactic to include some Boomerang bouncing for both your creatures and threatening opponent cards. After you are finished getting the spell you need from it, you can use it as a chump blocker.
Your deck is very vulnerable to tokens and aggressive decks, so consider a Dissipation Field or some AEtherize. Much of your deck doesn't even begin to lay the groundwork for it's winning strategy until late game, so consider some cheaper mind control tech like Persuasion and Mind Control or quicker ramps with mana rocks like Sol Ring or fixers like Gauntlet of Power and Caged Sun. If you like artifacts, you can do some mean things with Mindslaver and Trading Post.

Carnage Altar and Ashnod's Altar are nice to use against an opponent who can destroy your enchantments/artifacts. May also consider Memory Plunder. Treachery Is expensive, and without a lot of card draw (think Fact or Fiction ), it'll be hard to make the second ability REALLY worth it. Save some time and put one of those 5 cost control enchants out there.

Have so much stealing, the opponent can't match up, be choosy about what you take, and use counterspells for things you just don't have another answer to. Like when your opponent brings out Martial Coup with plans to Burn at the Stake next turn.

Help Needed for making this deck Optimized. Also I could have missed some combo potential, just started Magic in 2018. Thinking about adding more Infinite Mana Combos like Basalt Monolith + Rings of Brighthearth and Staff of DominationWalking Ballista for Mana sink/additional wincon.

Things that are on my "Cut"-List

Thran Dynamo Good Manarock but, I sometimes just need colored Mana more

One with the Machine Draws 3-4 cards most of the time and fits the Artifact Theme. But there is Better draw, just mention it.

Mana Echoes it's good with all the Thopter Stuff, but often it's just Mana that "Burns" away. Again Walking Ballista is an option

Sphinx Summoner 5 mana Tutor. Meh.

Sydri, Galvanic Genius combos with Aetherflux, but otherwise not useful in my opinion.

Vampiric Tutor Straight out of Budget, using proxy at the moment

Master Transmuter cheating mana cost is big. But my curve is low. Can't get Hellkite Tyrant or any of my Planeswalkers.

Trash for Treasure Sorcery Speed. Early Trash for Treasure isn't useful most of the time.

Cards I really want to play:

Walking Ballista

Darksteel Forge Protection

Mycosynth Lattice With the lattice, mostly none of your opponents play Artifact Boardwipes anymore. But High CMC

Treasure Nabber In a format that play so many Mana rocks this dude seems great. With KCI you can still sac the rocks for more mana

Memnarch Mana sink/combo with Pili-Pala combo to get Everything. High CMC

Slobad, Goblin Tinkerer Save half of your artifacts on a Destroy Boardwipe. Save important Artifacts for sacing Thopters

Storm the Vault It's land version is even banned

Semblance Anvil More reduce is good.

Mindslaver Hard to achieve but having his effect multiple times and controlling everyone is just a win.

Indomitable Archangel Protection, but high CMC

Blinkmoth Urn If you play an artifact Deck and your opponents don't it's just crazy

All in all for slower/longer games I need much more draw

Rhystic Study

Consecrated Sphinx

Notion Thief

But these aren't artifacts

Aether Spellbomb

Pyrite Spellbomb

Commander's Sphere are reusable

A nifty budget sideboard option I have grown fond of is Silent Arbiter. Open for tons of removal but still pretty good for buying time against opponents going wide.

If aiming to keep this deck Long term and eventually put more money in it I suggest just for Academy Ruins... Fun to fetch Expedition Map or an alternative wincon like Mindslaver.

Played Mindslaver in here before. It’s an instant win in 1v1, but it’s just really unsatisfying to win a game with it, so I cutted it from the list. Winning just doesn’t feel like winning of no1 has fun doing it. It’s better to lose and have fun doing it than getting a boring win I guess. At least as long as you’re not in a tournament.
