Mindslaver Discussion

Artifact synergy is just so absurd! The only recommendations I can think of are Emrakul, the Promised End and Mindslaver, both run effectively in artifact and colorless decks. Even without them though the deck will overwhelm most!

Please correct me if I am wrong, but I think Mindslaver & Sol Ring are band in modern.

that being said, I love the flavor of this deck! +1

I would use Saheeli Rai instead of Tezzeret the Seeker . Her ult is a better dig IMO, she gets out sooner and you can thin the top of your deck for the Precursor Golem while pinging your opponent. Plus you get another copy mechanic.

Since you are rolling with the token theme and from simple testing, you can get a fair amount. Maybe add 1 or 2 Westvale Abbey just as a back up wincon.

How well do your win conditions work? It seems like you could have issues with removal since your opponent is drawing as many cards as you. They could also chump block all your guys. One idea is you could replace those 10 creatures with 2 Elixir of Immortality and win by decking them. You could then add more fogs, 4 Fatal Push, and/or counterspells.

You could put 1-2 Creeping Tar Pit in the board for another win condition. I say in the board, because you don't want them seeing it game 1. That way they'll take out removal.

You also have the problem of decks that don't win through combat damage or other have shenanigans such as Mindslaver. Commencement of Festivities and Defend the Hearth would stop Storm and any deck with Walking Ballista. They can just replace your other 2 drop fogs. I would put in a couple counterspells for these decks, any deck that casts Emrakul, the Promised End and others I can't think of atm.

Also, Temple Bell > Rites of Flourishing. Font of Mythos is also an option.

QuietMyth I personally dont think this deck needs it. The way it plays is very streamlined. The way I see it, if I need a Mindslaver effect, then I should have already won.

Also, for me those kinds of things are a "feel bad" situation. I just don't like to win in ways that I hate to lose. Like that or Armagedon

abby315 on Thoughts on this Mono-U Budget ...

I know next to nothing about mono U in EDH, but there's really no reason not to run Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal infinite mana combo (with any mana rock). Especially when you already have Capsize and Blue Sun's Zenith to use with the inf. mana. And it's budget!

My first thoughts for cuts would be Future Sight unless it plays some role I'm not seeing and maybe Rewind as your worst permission, though you could perhaps cut a land since the higher land count is mostly to hedge against poor opening hands.

Also, not interested in running Mindslaver even though you have Treasure Mage and Academy Ruins?

EDIT: To answer your question, I think it looks fine. My suggestions reflect that mono- combo/control is more effective in EDH, to my knowledge, since is a fragile stand-alone control color.

If you want to make it more resilient in a multiplayer group, I'd add the above combos to quickly take care of threatening players. If you want to make it faster in 1v1, I'd streamline the deck to be a High Tide combo build, which you can also do on a budget like this.

Hello my friend, may I suggest Chaos Warp and Mindslaver? Nothing says evil genius like Slave of Bolas too
