Whenever a permanent deals damage to you, return it to its owner's hand.

Dissipation Field Discussion

I tried Dissipation Field in a Sen Triplets deck. People attacked me just to reuse their ETB value creatures.

Penance with Elsha is spicy.

Dissipation Field could be good here. Rattlesnake effect that you can flash in with Elsha for a big effect.

I definitely confirm what's already been told you by others. Cards have to be included only if they support your deck's gameplay and/or flavour. You may include some pet cards just for fun, but trust me, sooner or later, you'll find a game in which you draw one of those and you'll be screwed... It happened to me too, it's a matter of trial and error sometimes.

Anyways, if you desperately need cards that punish your opponents from attacking you, I'd suggest: No Mercy , Dissipation Field and Dread just to name some from the top of my head. Remember though, that if you're dealt lethal damage, the triggered ability of all those cards, Teysa EoG included, will fizzle because you're dead (and as a state base action your spells, permanents and such are exiled). That's saying that those cards won't help you when facing lethal damage.

On the other hand, if what you need are tokens, I'm sure you'll find better options depending on the deck and/or needs you have. I think of Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder , Ophiomancer or any of the plentiful white effects to create tokens, like Secure the Wastes , or to double them like Anointed Procession .

If you need good protection creatures, again, it depends on your colors and deck strategy. Do an advanced search on Scryfall with keyword "protection" and some commander identity color limitations and you'll be good to go.

You are absolutely right GrinningGrebe. I will swap Dissipation Field for Propaganda , as it makes much more sense and is cheaper to cast as well so win-win.

Nice list! Just one thing: Dissipation Field has a bad interaction with your pain lands and is something to consider. Maybe a classic Propaganda can help keeping aggressive decks at bay.

Nice deck! though, were you going for simple? because that could change some of my suggestions...

Gonna take a break for now though. Let me know your thoughts and I'll continue looking at this later

counter spell

Counterspell instead of Cancel

Cryptic Command

maybe Pact of Negation

spell recursion

Mystic Retrieval

Shreds of Sanity

grave play

Sheoldred, Whispering One

Dictate of Erebos

Grave Pact

maaaaybe Necrotic Plague


Dissipation Field

potential card cut

remember, some things HAVE to go

Lingering Death and Rend Flesh and Chill to the Bone -- there are more refined solutions, such as Doom Blade and Go for the Throat Faster than lingering death and cheaper than rend flesh and chill to the bone. Slaughter Pact also could do the trick

Delirium -- if we're going for simple, this card misses the mark.

Red Elemental Blast -- cheap, and most often it is a blue spell that is the target. But this takes a counterspell slot and is pretty restricted.

Anarchist and Scrivener -- deck has plenty of less specific or cheaper spell recursion options

@Megalomania Frozen AEther looks perfect for this! The decks synergy/theme is my favorite part of piloting this deck. In multiplayer/the beginning I need to heavily rely on not being taken out quickly by other players in hopes that they fear over extending themselves/leaving themselves open to be taken out... my playgroup has a lot of fair creature heavy decks so Propaganda / Dissipation Field and Crawlspace are my "big plays" early on and I do pretty well at being hard to kill/not worth killing if im able to draw into/play those.... But I have learned to not play Silent Arbiter until its 1V1 because he just inconveniences everyone and get blown up and usually me right after lol... but the late game if i manage to get to the 1v1 Familiar's Ruse really shines and the win will come... but it takes For-ev-er.

Sweet signature spell and oathbreaker pairing! I think this could use some deterrents/protection from creatures with things like Propaganda , Silent Arbiter , Crawlspace and Dissipation Field .
