Psychic Surgery


Whenever an opponent shuffles his or her library, you may look at the top 2 cards of that library. You may exile one of those cards. Then put the rest on top of that library in any order.

You can try adding in Mystic Remora for burst card draw. Psychic Surgery is also very fun to play with~

I like Cosi's Trickster and Field of Ruin. Cards like the trickster and Psychic Surgery might be the way to go for shuffle payoffs.

I'm not expecting broken completely, but something consistent, interactive, and disruption centric is the main goal.

Lol, already built a PM deck. It is so funny. Far from broken though. Possibly Psychic Surgery? Madblind Mountain and Cosi's Trickster too.

This deck is cool: a true homage to Nicol Bolas. I do think you need more Lili planeswalkers in this deck. Not only will it help this deck, you stick to the lore at present. Fraying Omnipotence needs to move from sideboard and maybe board to the main: it is devastating and its Bolas ... you need it in! Watch as your enemies squirm and suffer (muhahahahaha). Tramuatize is more synergy. I wish to advise you to consider Psychic Surgery: Bolas pulls this trick, essentially, and you get to hinder you foe's plans. Lore and usefulness. I hope these have been helpful to you! :D

Hey Ravenrose,

Thanks for taking the time to look at the list and leave a comment! Great to hear you like the list. Please consider upvoting as well if you liked it ;). I looked at your tips and these ar my considerations when assessing them:

About your tips:

  • Spirit Away I find too expensive mana-wise. I’d rather have 4-5 mana spells that steal a creature
  • Similar for Clone Legion. 9 Mana is quite prohibitive and you can only run a few of that cost. I went for Expropriate for my high cmc spell.
  • Silumgar's Command is a nice versatile hate card. However, it’s a bit expensive at 5 mana. I am not expecting to hold up 5 mana with this deck, so that’s why I did not include it.
  • Silumgar, the Drifting Death is nice, but It doesn’t synergize with the goal of my list, which is to steal by opponents permanents. If I would run a dragon sub-theme, it would surely find a spot in the deck, but that wasn’t the idea I was going for. A similar answer I would have for Archetype of Imagination. It’s a great card, but does not really gel with the strategy of the deck.
  • Telepathy is a card I’m going to consider. Knowing what my opponent’s have could be crucial info to know how to use my steal spells.
  • I do not really get you Psychic Surgery tip tbh. My deck does not actively shuffle opponent’s decks or want them to exile good cards. I want to steal the good cards :D
  • Ice Cave I would find more fitting in a chaos deck. With this deck I want to have the opposite: control.
  • I did not know about the … of empires cycle. Looks like fun! However, it would require many resources to get them in play all at once. I would rather add Empress Galina for example to get a similar effect as Crown of Empires.

Hope this explains my thought process a bit concerning your tips.

Thanks gain for the tips, and I'll have a look at your list soon.

Do you think that Psychic Surgery could find it's way into a list like this? It let's you manipulate opponents after fetching, and it can interfere with topdeck tutors (unless they have a way to respond to the trigger).

Can you guess my hobby? (It is pretty obvious btw)

Heavy Lifting

Enchantment - Aura

Enchant creature you control

: Put two +1/+1 counters on enchantet creature. It is exhausted and doesn't untap during your next untap step


Create a card that punishes something and can remove cards from deck (Psychic Surgery for inspiration)

Counterbalance is the core card in this deck style. Its worth taking even more budget options throughout the rest of the deck just to play a set. Aqueous Form is too easy to get 2-for-1'd compared to a playset of something like Anticipate or Telling Time.

I much prefer Sage of Epityr to Omenspeaker- dropping things lower in the library to later be shuffled away is fine when it just costs 1.

There are also some interesting tech options, depending on what direction you take the build.Captivating Glance Cloudform Hinder Mitotic Manipulation etc.

Take a look at Lantern of Insight control for a good set of tools. Psychic Surgery/Cosi's Trickster/Vortex Elemental can be a spicy and powerful budget combination. There are also some fun Skill Borrower brews to check out too.
