Mindslicer Discussion

Hc_Clan on A Nightmare to Remember (Crosis, The Purger)

2 weeks ago

Actually, I was wrong, the oracle text says each and oracle text is always the final say. I'm going to put it in soon just need to figure out what to cut, thanks for helping me realize that.

This deck is pretty much done. All of the other ways of playing you've mentioned are viable options but, given Crosis' ability, I believe discard and rack effects are the most unique and efficient way to use this deck.

Mindslicer is a good card but I don't think I have enough draw in this deck to be able to recover from its effects, however, I do see its use

Tyrant-Thanatos on Optimal Discard Spells for Damia, ...

Liliana's Caress, Megrim, and Waste Not all churn out extra value from all your discard effects. Combined with any strong enough and/or recurring enough discard they can win games. I'd also suggest Jace's Archivist. Mindslicer may be worth considering as well.

theindigoeffect on Optimal Discard Spells for Damia, ...

Since Damia, Sage of Stone has built-in card advantage, I wanted to avoid slotting in card draw for myself and focus on creating card disadvantage for my opponents.

Basically, my deck will be divided into five parts: lands, ramp, card disadvantage, disruption/removal, and synergistic win-cons (mill, mass recursion, etc.)

I already have a variety of different discard cards in my possession, but since this isn't a hellbent deck, and I don't want to dedicate a large percentage of my deck to recursion, I'm thinking that cards like Necrogen Mists and Words of Waste would be better suited to the task than cards like Mindslicer. I know that Damia, Sage of Stone will replenish my hand, but I don't want to lose a much-needed card.

What do you guys think? Is discard even a viable strategy with Damia, Sage of Stone? I personally don't care for Nath of the Gilt-Leaf.

I can see Mindslicer being pretty fun to play but I haven't put him in to avoid drawing hate from the whole table. I found Entomber Exarch (or Nightmare Void) being a fine substitute for that matter. It still deals with storm and/or combo decks by taking their most threatening card and showing the rest to other players who can take care (save a counterspell etc.) of other cards if needed. It can also function as a conditional Eternal Witness when I don't need hand disruption so it's never a dead draw.

As much as I love Eternal Witness, I don't see myself running Den Protector and Treasured Find because it can't be recurred and I'm trying to maximize the number of cards which can be useful when they end up in the graveyard.

Animate Dead, Necromancy and Dance of the Dead are definitely all quality cards but I prefer more unique or swingy recursion spell (such as Wake the Dead or Living Deathfoil icon). I will probably add them if I find myself in need of more recursion.

I was running Buried Alive before and I cut it because I didn't need that many tutors and I often found myself holding it in my hand for the whole game. My deck, however, has evolved since then and I'm positive that I'll be able to use tutors more efficiently now. I'll give it another shot.

I found the foil theme deck Entomb on sale and has to snatch it up.

I love meren, and I have a meren deck as well. It's not on tapped out yet though, but I also find great joy in Mindslicer. It draws a lot of hate though. But being in black and green you u can out attrition a lot of decks when top decking. Also, if you find yourself needing to recycle more cards from your graveyard, Den Protector is a very cheap pseudo e-witness. Or Treasured Find, but it's kind of narrow. Animate Dead/Necromancy/Dance of the Dead are also useful in meren, and Buried Alive is a kind of supercharged Entomb that is less expensive money wise.
