The Magic Mirror Discussion

bossomus on Wheelin' & Dealin' (Damage)

Hey king-saproling!

Kederekt Parasite is definitely really good, and you've kind of convinced me on it.

With regard to what I took out, I decided that even though Dissipation Field does nonbo with Spiteful Visions , that it provides enough of disincentive for people attacking me that I'm okay with it. I also left Nin, the Pain Artist and Niv-Mizzet, Parun in the deck as they are really powerful cards which can jump me ahead a lot. With all of the duel lands I have, I have never been unable to cast Niv, and I also just think that Nin is good since she lets me sink mana into her if I don't have to counter something after a turn cycle. Lastly, I left in The Magic Mirror as it can provide a lot of card draw and value, and most of the time, I can cast it for not that much.

I did end up taking out Kess, Dissident Mage , Bone Miser , Prosperity , and Sphinx's Tutelage though. I agree with you on Sphinx's as it really only feels good in a 1v1 for mill. Kess and Bone Miser both felt like a mana sink which I always felt bad about since they only mildly synergize with the rest of my cards and require a lot of investment up front. Lastly, Prosperity just never felt as good as a wheel since everyone gets to hold their cards except for me.

Thanks again for all your help!

CheeseE: I like Talrand in the deck, but Vendilion Clique actually already came out of the paper version of the deck. I haven't updated it because A. I don't remember what I replaced it with and B. I'm lazy and I'm going to wait to update the online decklist until I trade for all the cards from Throne of Eldraine that I want to put in (for example Midnight Clock and The Magic Mirror ) and figure out what I'm taking out for those cards.

jaymc1130: While that does sound like a pretty good plan if I were to make the deck more competitive, this is still a casual deck for me and I think I'll keep the creatures in just because I kinda like the way the deck plays currently. But thanks for the good ideas and the comment!

Sure thing mate, brewing and testing is the best part of Magic!

Looking at it again though, I think we'd be better off going all in on the tempo or not at all, as right now we still don't have enough pressure.

I believe though, that it would be more fun (and competitive) with a controlling deck that only plays maybe some amount of Gadwick, the Wizened and God-Eternal Kefnet as actual creatures, but then having Commence the Endgame and Enter the God-Eternals on top of that. This way you could still profitably play Jace, Wielder of Mysteries and The Magic Mirror AND you gain access to awesome cards like Thought Erasure , Drown in the Loch , black removal and maybe Liliana, Dreadhorde General and/or Ugin, the Ineffable . Now you can control them out, out-grind, mill them (or yourself for Jace lulz - Mirror is good for that too) and apply decent late game threats.

I realize that is quite far from where you started though... Either way, good luck!

Seems like a few of the new Blue cards from Throne could be really good in this deck. Gadwick, the Wizened seems particulary great. I also think something like The Magic Mirror could be a way to get some card advantage. Maybe even Folio of Fancies as a late game WinCon. Other utility lands might help, too. I have always really liked Sea Gate Wreckage , but the new Castle Vantress might be good, too.

I feel like the old staples of Snapcaster Mage and Cryptic Command would be good here.

Optimator on Human Fly

Unexplained Vision is all right. Into the Story seems good--four for four is as good as it gets and it seems likely to have the discount. Folio of Fancies might be okay. Gadwick, the Wizened is all right too. The Magic Mirror seems great; kind of a better Mind Unbound .

TheSimikBOat on TRY JUND! [Eldraine]

When I added Embereth Shieldbreaker I though in the new legendary artifacts, espacially Embercleave and The Magic Mirror , that I think that will be relevant in monored aggro and control. Especially The Magic Mirror , because I think that it gives a silly amount of advantage to our opponent. Also against mono red aggro decks with Embercleave (that I think that cab be competitive in future standard), Embereth Shieldbreaker can destroy the Embercleave and then also can kill mostly of the creatures that the deck has. But this is only a sideboard maked with my predictions, and probably I will change this in the future, when the metagame will be more clear.

With the new set coming out, do you think The Magic Mirror would be a good card to play for card draw?

ThoAlmighty on Kykar Storm (budget)

Sweet deck! I think you could try Ignite Memories as another storm payoff, its not always reliable, but in EDH can usually kill much earlier than Grapeshot. Backdraft Hellkite might also be a consideration, even though its not as good as PiF. Also, Mind Unbound and the new The Magic Mirror might be good at helping you rebuild if you fizzle, though are on the slow side.
