Mystifying Maze Discussion

DivineSmooof on politics

If you're looking for cards to add, my first recommendation is to add more lands. Personally, unless I'm running a lower curve, I like to run 35-38 lands, but if you find 32 lands works then here's some other suggestions.

If you want some redundancy with your Propaganda effects you could include Ghostly Prison, Windborn Muse, and/or Norn's Annex. Maze of Ith, Mystifying Maze, and Glacial Chasm are also great ways to protect yourself (and, in the case of Maze of Ith, play a little game of politics).

If you want another "help an opponent" card, try Wall of Shards, and Loxodon Peacekeeper will trade around to the player with the lowest life.

I don't see any board wipes, so I have to recommend including 1 or 2, some of which include Wrath of God, Merciless Eviction, Cyclonic Rift, Evacuation, and Damnation or Toxic Deluge if your budget permits.

Rainbow Vale taps for, well, rainbow, and passes to the player you chose at end of turn. Spectral Searchlight lets you give mana to other players.

Some removal that's a little "on theme" would include Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, and Arcane Denial. Also Pongify, Rapid Hybridization, and Beast Within (although I'd imagine players would be less than excited to replace their creatures with worse ones.)

for cards with cmc 3, you need 20 lands. and i honestly have no idea how you ever expect to cast Increasing Devotion with only 18 lands. for a cmc 5 card, you need 24 lands PLUS either mana ramp or a lot of removal/control options. in fact you have no removal whatsoever. Mystifying Maze and Westvale Abbey  Flip are horrible cards. btw this deck isn't standard legal. the plains is literally the only standard legal card in the deck.

Since you want some lands Command Tower Opal Palace Cascading Cataracts City of Brass Evolving Wilds Path of Ancestry Temple of the False God Terramorphic Expanse. Those are the usual Commander Lands. Maybe you could even play with Mystifying Maze or Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx. You need some Basic Lands ~ just fill the rest of your lands with them. There are Double and even Triple colored lands, they enter the battlefield tapped, but it makes them cheaper.

Ghost Quarter, Tectonic Edge: Need protection from Maze of Ith, Mystifying Maze and Thaumatic Compass  Flip - they just shut down this deck.


Temple of the False God, Opal Palace: The least relevant colorless lands.

Maze of Ith can be used to remove Alesha from combat after the triggered ability resolves, and Mystifying Maze don't, that's why I choose the first one :)

You cannot play Phyrexian Metamorph in mono Black, it does have Blue mana symbol.

I'm not big Edh player myself but this deck definitely could use more utility lands like, Mystifying Maze. Maze of Ith, Ghost Quarter, Reliquary Tower and stuff like that.

Maze of Ith is so much better than Mystifying Maze, mystifyings activating cost is just awful, even if it banishes it till the next end step, I wouldnt ever play it tbh

If you are having problems with the aggressive Werewolf Tribal decks that are popping up I would suggest adding Mystifying Maze. Otherwise great deck, good luck with the Nigerian Prince! I've personally had more luck with the Supreme Leader of Uzbekistan.
