Take into Custody Discussion

ImtheRealBear on Please Help this deck

If you are running Unsubstantiate, Topplegeist and Take into Custody you probably don't need Subjugator Angel. Instead you could try a bit more damage like Aethersquall Ancient and Aetherwind Basker. It looks like you are using a lot of energy so I would also take out Kujar Seedsculptor and put in Servant of the Conduit from your maybeboard. If you are willing to spend a little bit more you check out Botanical Sanctum and Aetherworks Marvel. If you want a planeswalker you could try Dovin Baan, he is a cheaper one that can still put on some pressure.

Let's say my opponent control two untapped creatures, for example two Alpha Tyrranax. I control one Loxodon Convert and choose to attack with him, my opponent block with one Alpha Tyrranax and I cast right away Take into Custody, targeting his blocking Alpha Tyrranax, now, does my opponent get the right to block with his second Alpha Tyrranax, or the damage would delt to him directly? thanks a lot!

If you want to take control of their creatures, perhaps instead of removal spells, run tap spells so you can keep them alive while shutting them down. In that case, Icy Blast, Chilling Grasp, Gigadrowse, Take into Custody, Ice Over, and Blustersquall are all good at that, course there's also Niblis of Frost and Frost Titan in terms of creatures.

Baral, Chief of Compliance only reduces the generic portion of mana costs. As such, Take into Custody would still cost U, but Negate would only cost U.

From Baral's Gatherer:

2/9/2017 Barals first ability doesnt affect the colored mana requirements of instant and sorcery spells.

If I have Baral, Chief of Compliance on the battlefield, and Take into Custody in hand, can I put Take into Custody on the battlefield for free? or do I still gotta pay his cost because that's not colorless mana? Thanks!

sorry for the bad color, i'll recopy paste it here:

"there are a few things to note: Your deck has creatures that gain value from casting instants and sorceries, yet most of your instants and sorceries are pump spells. docent of perfection is a really good finisher

Because you have so much pump and so many creatures, i'd advise you to include Mirrorwing Dragon , so one uncaged fury will give all your creatures +1/+1 and double strike. very deadly.

also, instead of your sideboard disperse, you could have Take into Custody, as disperse just allows them to recast, and tapping is more relevant because if they recast, they may get some cast triggers, and also enters untapped, meaning they can block, if you tap using Take into Custody, it won't untap on their next turn, so you can attack past that creature. problem with kozilek's return in sideboard is you have no way to trigger it.

also, your deck would be better off with 22 or so lands, even 23. 20 just seems to be pushing your luck."
