Transgress the Mind Discussion
1 month ago
Anguished Unmaking - Exile all the things.
Archangel Avacyn Flip - hahahahaha no. My stuff is all Indestructible. You killed one of my Creatures? Oops, now your stuff is all board wiped.
Declaration in Stone - my favourite card. Goodbye Ulamog. Goodbye Zombehs.
Dispel - I play Negate. You play Negate. I play Dispel. You cry.
Grasp of Darkness - your Archangel Avacyn Flip is now dead.
Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet - I get Zombehs. I get life.
Transgress the Mind - Exile any fuck off cards.
Sorin, Grim Nemesis - draw AND deal damage.
Wandering Fumarole - Crews all day long.
I will NOT miss Gideon, Ally of Zendikar, even though I used it.
It was boring seeing it come out in every deck.
Truly a format defining card.

If you have the cards then by all means do so. Without posting your whole collection cards to suggest are tricky. Sanitarium Skeleton is pretty decent in a toolbox. Scrapheap Scrounger is annoying too. Cut and Torment of Hailfire are really good. There is a fair amount of graveyard hate in my meta so I wouldn't run too much recursion. Hand disruption between Transgress the Mind Lay Bare the Heart and even good old Mind Rot. Run sets of 2 and 3 of copies of utility cards. You could be real annoying and be able to sideboard pretty well without ruining your consistency. Eternal Scourge is awesome. A single Akoum Firebird is a good mana sink. Try and ignore having a theme, and run something fun to play. If you have any sort of good lands other than Blooming Marsh let us know what they are and we can build around it. Any cycle lands?

Mono-Black Control is about to lose most of its really good pieces:
It will still retain Fatal Push, Never / Return, Harsh Scrutiny, and Yahenni's Expertise, and it will have the new Walk the Plank, but unless it gets some better 2 drops it's going to lose all tempo in the early game.

Great deck, I love processors. I'm actually running a similar build...
The main problem I have is getting enough stuff ingested to make use of my processors.
...and hey, once they rotate out....hello Ghostfire Blade!

Checking in from Reddit!
So, first thing, I like the deck. U/B Control seems super underplayed and I love U/B control. You are, however, missing a few vital pieces of control that fall under these colors.
Firstly, Fatal Push is the bomb. Such a fantastic card. There are so many <2CMC creatures that can be taken out with Fatal Push. Winding Constrictor, Scrapheap Scrounger, Earthshaker Khenra, the list goes on. A play set of Fatal Push is almost mandatory in U/B control decks.
Censor is missing as well. Not only can it be a great card early game when your opponent taps out to get a creature on board, but you can cycle it late game if they keep leaving mana open. Censor also kind of makes your opponent play around it because they know you could have one in your hand. There's nothing worse than tapping out and getting Censor'd because you assumed your opponent didn't have one in hand.
Essence Scatter could be good here as well to counter creature spells. I see you have plenty of creature removal, but Essence Scatter on a high CMC creature such as Glorybringer or Verdurous Gearhulk.
In terms of stuff you don't need but COULD add in, As Foretold isn't played very often but I always like throwing it in my control decks because in grindy match ups, it allows you to cast more than an extra spell from your hand without paying the mana from it. Not necessary, but it could be fun to tinker around with.
The Scarab God could be fun to play with as well. You can exile a creature from any graveyard to create a 4/4 zombie, but that's just a suggestion that can be used for fun.
Lost Legacy and Dispossess can be great sideboard cards for you. Playing against God-Pharaoh's Gift decks? No problem, Dispossess it. Oh, you have a deck that revolves around Chandra, Torch of Defiance? Lost Legacy takes care of that.
That's all I can think of so far, hopefully this could be of some help to you! Ixalan is coming out soon and doesn't seem to have a ton of control, but there are some neat tricks you can add in there as well.
I'll copy this to Reddit as well so people can hopefully respond there as well.

Its all part of the process. I will suggest that if you are going to tournament, that you fill out you sideboard. It will give you some wiggle room to react to a deck that you may be weak against. You have 15 spots available there. Might as well use them.
What issue did you have? Tempo? Mana balance? Just crap luck?
Fatal Push is always a solid choice. It really one of the best removal options for right now considering its CMC of 1.

Awesome deck! I have been trying to make something like this work for awhile now but haven't really found the pieces to make it super viable. I like the taxation effects of cards like Kambal, Consul of Allocation and Harsh Mentor, so making a deck around them is great.
I tried to add in Solemnity in mine to shut down any type of counter or energy decks as well. I would possibly remove Tormenting Voice for that. I have also found that too many Cast Out is a bad thing and they often end up being cycled. Perhaps you could them down and add in creatures like Ammit Eternal or cards like Grind / Dust as you already have the white/black mana. Cast Grind on cards that are either 1 toughness or cards you need to exile quickly, it has tons of value in it. Also, if you want to play more creatures that have exile effects, Angel of Condemnation is something I've been fooling around with as it's pretty much Cast Out but with the ability to exile your own cards to dodge spells, or bounce your opponents creatures back in their hand. I would probably drop Make a Stand for more creatures.
Perhaps cards like Harsh Scrutiny, Transgress the Mind, and Lay Bare the Heart would work nicely here as you can get some hand disruption in as well. Or, if you want a creature as well, Gonti, Lord of Luxury can be a big swing in momentum. Torment of Hailfire would probably work better than Torment of Scarabs because with the amount of removal and taxation effects you have, they'll probably have to take the life loss.
These are just some ideas that I've had when I fiddled around with it for awhile, hopefully they helped you a bit too.
