Transgress the Mind Discussion

Mannu_1978 Lay Bare the Heart isn't that great, i like Transgress the Mind because it allows me to permanently get rid of any possible bomb in my opponents hand early on in the game, especially if its a creature with graveyard presence (embalm, eternalize). Mind Rot is a solid card, but i am not in need of it at the moment. I have Consign. I will look into Winds of Rebuke but I've never been fond of self-mill, but it is nice.

A few questions:

Is there a reason to play cancel if you can have 4 disallow?

Fraying Sanity is combo with any discard, but the ones that exiles. Why not Lay Bare the Heart, or even Mind Rot, instead of Transgress the Mind?

Winds of Rebuke can bounce and mill you AND opponent to feed your own graveyard.

Alright, okay. Sit down, buckle in because as someone who loves Eldrazi there's a few suggestions that you may just love for this deck.

If this deck is based around exiling your opponent's stuff (be it library or on the field), then mana ramping into big eldrazi to finish off the game, you're gonna want a rather focused deck. Things like Drownyard Behemoth aren't great because, in order for you to reduce it's cost to something practical, you either need to sacrifice your big finishers OR one or two mana dorks. Neither of these are great. Instead there's a very interesting finisher in Ulamog's Despoiler. It costs less mana for a larger creature that will beat your opponents down faster.

The other problem with the current concept is your average converted mana cost for your stuff. Right now it's 5.70. To put that in perspective, on average to cast something in your deck you're going to need 6 mana. Even if you have a few mana dorks on the field, you won't have a noteworthy field presence until at least turn 4. What you're gonna want to do is add lower cost creatures and remove some higher cost ones that don't really impact the game immediately. I'll break down specifics below:

Blisterpod: Great early blocker that turns into mana. 10/10 would include in ramp.

Eldrazi Skyspawner: Same as above, except you get the mana right away AND you get a flier.

Fathom Feeder: Holy crap is this guy value. A 1/1 deathtoucher that ingests. Your opponents are damned if they block, damned if they don't. Not to mention he's late game card draw with ingest. Absolute favorite low-cost eldrazi right there.

Sludge Crawler: A cheap ingester that is pumpable late game. Easy include

Wasteland Strangler: Stat-wise this guy kinda sucks, but if you ingested a card earlier in the game, he turns into a 3/2 for 3 mana that is also a potential kill-spell on a stick. Brain blast.

Oblivion Sower: This guy is no joke. He's a mid-cost eldrazi that will not only exile your opponent's top few cards, he will also potentially ramp into more mana that will help you cast even more big things.

Finally there's a few non-creatures I want to talk about. You have From Beyond for constant mana-ramp, as well as tutoring for an Eldrazi card. A good 1- or 2-of in the deck. For more control cards, you have Transgress the Mind for hand-hate and Titan's Presence for easy removal if you have a large eldrazi in your hand. Remember that anything with Devoid is considered colorless, so you could reveal a Dread Defiler and it would still be fine.

Hope this helped, and I'm sorry if I came off as angry or rude. I really love the deck concept :)

SirChris39 when you are playing try to make a note of Transgress the Mind would hit something important, that Lay Bare the Heart doesn't, and swap them out.

Transgress the Mind was very good when Aetherworks Marvel decks were around, but you might find that Lay Bare the Heart is now better. It hits all Planeswalkers. You'll have to see what works best against your local meta.

The other card you might want to try is Lost Legacy, as it lets you remove all copies of a card.

Do you think Transgress the Mind is a good card for my sideboard of my B/W zombie deck

Running Wildfire Eternal with Dark Salvation and Torment of Hailfire on your deck is suboptimal, both cards with on their costs can only be casted for = through a Wildfire Eternal trigger.

Transgress the Mind, Never//Return and Abrade should definetely be on your sideboard, also consider swapping your Inferno Jet for Incendiary Flows.

Ahn-Crop Crasher can be used instead of Wildfire Eternal if you decide to run spells with lower CMC or keep the ones with costs. With that said, Wildfire Eternal is still great without abusing its on hit trigger, so there's no real need to change things.

Imho I would suggest a bit more straight up removal, and use the black aspect of control to its full power with cards like Terminate, otherwise very good. As for individual cards, Sedraxis Specter, Blightning, Rakdos's Return, and Transgress the Mind. Thoughtseize if you can afford it. +1 from me!
