Mnemonic Betrayal Discussion

Tiphus Well done, this deck looks very good. What I like is that you have included many Counterspell s, Tainted Pact seems a fantastic choice. An eyecatcher is Mnemonic Betrayal , I'm curious how it does work when playing it in this deck. I see some potential in improve the deck, but at this time it is for sure competitive (There are of course many ways to up- or downgrade it).

As I see this is definitely a combo deck, and if you are going deeper into the wincon with Laboratory Maniac I strongly recommend Doomsday . Maybe this card helps you to get also other needed cards to close the game.

One of the problems of Circu, Dimir Lobotomist is that he should not get attacked. Taking a look at some creatures seems fair. Depending on your playgroup you may add something with deathtouch like Baleful Strix , Tomebound Lich is a bit underestimated but also worth a try. You have so many instants and sorceries so Talrand, Sky Summoner and/or Murmuring Mystic could be interesting to fill your board an get some defense.

The other thing to take a look at is your life points. When testing my Circu, Dimir Lobotomist -deck the game goes on, an on, an on, and sometimes the combos didn't work (e.g. got countered, or the commander got destroyed) and the life total got lower and lower.

But in general your decklist looks already great, you definitely got the message behind this commander.

Mnemonic Betrayal and Fraying Sanity combo? Seems like a good way to to close a game out. Since both trigger on beginning of end step you should be good to have betrayal go first then sanity.

mmcgeach due to this list's usage of Solitary Confinement , City of Brass often just a better Mana Confluence .

I have also found that Winds of Abandon is a better sweeper in testing than Supreme Verdict .

I also tested abusing more black cards ( Slaughter Pact , Dismember , Yahenni's Expertise , etc.) to use Force of Despair , but it was a mediocre card even with that. I did learn that new Ashiok is pretty good against combo, and Mnemonic Betrayal is really bad against Gitrog, but isn't that bad of a card.

I'd recommend Glen Elendra Liege to support your faerie tribal theme and Extract from Darkness and Psychic Drain for the mill strategy. Mnemonic Betrayal could also serve you well.

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .

The Chain Veil , Inexorable Tide , Contagion Clasp , and Contagion Engine maybe?

One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

Yo! Ik zet mijn suggesties hier neer, kan ik makkelijker de kaarten linken enzo

-2x Cackling Counterpart deze kan je niet op turn 3 spelen op 1 van je creatures, wat volgens mij de grootste kracht is van deze kaart. plus je creatures zijn niet heel kopieerbaar - enige op wie je het écht wil casten (denk ik) is thief of sanity.

-4x Psychic Spiral erg duur, en er is geen manier om je eigen graveyard te vullen, waardoor het effect grotendeels wegvalt. Goedkopere mill lijkt me daarom beter. werkt ook niet samen met Cast Through Time

-4x Beguiler of Wills dit is geen creature-spam deck, waardoor ie een hoop kracht verliest. Is ook 5 mana, wat best veel is. Je kan haar er 1x instoppen omdat het een erg leuke kaart is. Maar ik denk dat je hier heel vaak van teleurgesteld raakt, omdat jeniet de beste creature van de tegenstander mee kan overnemen. Je hebt waarschijnlijk gemiddeld 2-4 creatures op het veld, en de 5+ power creatures zijn dan buiten bereik

-2x Dark Petition beetje overkill, vind Mastermind's Acquisition leuker. deze is ook 5 mana, en je hebt erg veel 5 mana kaarten al.

-2x Cast Through Time Je hoeft er geen 4 te hebben in principe. Je hebt genoeg manieren om je library door te zoeken voor deze kaart. Daarom zou ik zeggen dat je deze maximaal 1 of 2 keer er in stopt. 7 mana is erg veel, en het effect stacked niet.

-4x Swamp - dan heb je 24 landjes

goedkopere mill dan psychic spiral: Thought Scour instant speed, 1 mana, vervangt zichzelf door een kaart te drawn. En millt de opponent een beetje! Mind Sculpt , Glimpse the Unthinkable (wel dure kaart), Mind Funeral

kaarten uit graveyard roven: Rise of the Dark Realms , Beacon of Unrest , Mnemonic Betrayal

kaarten uit enemy's hand roven: Silent-Blade Oni

kaarten uit deck roven: Bribery wel een ernstig dure kaart, Talent of the Telepath werkt ook als mill kaart, naast het stelen van instants/sorceries

kaarten exilen en vanuit exile spelen: Praetor's Grasp , Nightveil Specter , Exotic Orchard helpt bij het casten van kaarten van de tegenstander, omdat je automatisch hun mana kan pakken, Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Psychic Intrusion

goedkopere manier om creatures in de graveyard te krijgen: Doom Blade en andere goedkope destroy kaarten

gewoon overnemen van andermans creatures: Control Magic , Soul Ransom , Evil Twin

Ik denk dat het het best werkt om het thema van de graveyard-stealing te combineren met het vullen van de opponent's graveyard door goedkope mill kaarten. .

Turn 1/2/3 kan je dan de graveyard vullen met Thought Scour , Mind Sculpt , Mind Funeral , Nightveil Specter , en turn 4+ kan je het gaan leegroven met Beacon of Unrest , Beguiler of Wills , Lazav, Dimir Mastermind , Animate Dead

Het voordeel hiervan is dat de goedkope mill kaarten ook lategame value hebben met Cast Through Time , dan is een mill-victory opeens ook een hele reëele optie.
