Worst Fears


You control target player during that player's next turn. Exile Worst Fears. (You see all cards that player could see and make all decisions for the player.)

I would definitly choose Panoptic Mirror . Imprint it with Worst Fears in a Sen Triplets deck and your opponent never gets to play. I understand that its super OP with extra turn effects and the like. But I think that its mana intensive enough not to have a supper crippling impact on the format.

According to the Gatherer for Worst Fears :

4/26/2014: Multiple player-controlling effects that affect the same player overwrite each other. The last one to be created is the one that works.

So in your example, the effect of player two overwrites player one's. Player two will control player three during their next turn.

What happens if two diffrent players play a Worst Fears effect on the same player? For example if player one cast Worst Fears on player three then passed to player two. Then player two also casts Worst Fears on player three. Come player three's turn who controls player three?Thanks

@Yesterday: Damn. That might actually be useful; if I knew how the London Mulligan Works... Now back to 9 before the 100 card mark. About the Flashback ability: Would it be wise if I removed any others that lack in overall power? I mean, we got Echo of Eons , even self Exiling w/o that has stuff like Worst Fears & even Teferi's Protection .

Well, if you wanted to know what a Composite Prinny is; know that I've always wanted a battle to the death between both that & a Composite Moogle of Final Fantasy fame. Prinnies look like Penguins because that is how an individual becomes one; by having their soul stuffed into a shell of Demonic Life. Their favorite word is "Dood"; though I never trusted N1S America's Translation Accuracy. That's why I'm siding w/ Team Moogle, Kupo. At least PS1 Era-present SquareEnix seems consistent w/ translation.

My ideas for cuts?

  1. Spelltwine (Situational, especially I dun normally check Graves of others, remember, Gisa Sucks.)

Also for the Doomsday Package:

  1. Laboratory Maniac (Why not?)
  2. Gitaxian Probe Who doesn't?
  3. ???
  4. ???
  5. ???

I've no idea what else to add...

Wait, Is Spelltwine good here? What about Army of the Damned ?

I'm at work now so I can't really dive into this yet, I may come back to it later, but I can tell you something that helped me deal with my need to make fun decks in a group that evolved passed that point: I taught new players the game. New players don't have a good gauge of what's good or bad and they tend to go for the things they think are cool or the things that look fun. They're the perfect people to play your Goblin Game / Plague of Vermin + Worst Fears / Mindslaver deck against.

SuspectedSinner - Neither of those really help me. It's rare that I would want to copy my own things, and I'm not really making tokens.

Xudel - I stick pretty hard to the creature rules here - Clone, Steal, Buff, and Biovisionary lol. Seeing as that is one of many oddball wincons, I can't take it out. Ever. I'm still making edits here and there, but the overall flavor is letting people play their things so I can copy and buff. As far as Worst Fears goes, it's a high CMC, so my playgroup doesn't get mad when I play it late game.

I always welcome suggestions though so feel free to send more!
