Mind's Dilation


Whenever an opponent casts his or her first spell each turn, that player exiles the top card of his or her library. If it's a nonland card, you may cast it without paying its mana cost.

Writ of Passage maybe? Mind's Dilation fits theme but its got a high CMC (I play it in my Thada Adel deck, she counts as ramp when she plays every Sol Ring on the table so I can get it out by turn 5 pretty often)

I would say ramp is almost objectively the most important. Being able to hardcast spells even just one turn early gives a massive advantage, and the player without enough mana struggles the most. Large CMC spells are supposed to be cast late-game, and so can be quite broken in terms of effects (think Mind's Dilation). So if you can manage to play them closer to mid-game... you have a good shot at a dub

Umbilicus is a great suggestion as a way to blink your boss so others don't benefit from her. Any blink cards would be really helpful. Blinking Kederekt Leviathan or Scourge of Fleets could keep the game in a constant holding pattern if you need time to build mana etc (but could get really annoying).

Mind's Dilation or Dismiss into Dream maybe.

Deepchannel Mentor instead of Archetype of Imagination? Reach wouldn't work against you.

If a big guy is going to die Homarid Spawning Bed is useful. If anything is going to get zapped Neurok Stealthsuit is freaking amazing.

Hey! I'm enjoying your brew! I want to make a deck for the Good Pupper myself, and I wanted your opinion on a couple things.

First, I'm all for the extra combats and the lack of creatures. I think its a fun idea for the commanders.

Second, I think you're missing some board wipes. Maybe add cards like, Devastation Tide, or Cyclonic Rift?

Third, what are your thoughts on cards like Expel from Orazca, Set Adrift, or Noxious Revival? They could be really useful in turning things you want into frisbees for Good Pupper to fetch.

Fourth, what about cards like Exploration or Mina and Denn, Wildborn? That way you could use the lands more efficiently that you steal with Good Pupper.

Fifth, what about cards like Stolen Strategy or Mind's Dilation? More ways to steal the things.

Sixth, do you think that adding more equipment and auras might be good to protec and pump Pupper? like Darksteel Plate or Sword of Truth and Justice?

Also, a fun removal spell is Beacon Bolt. It's nice because it works with your exile too

I really love this partner pair and would love your opinions. I'll link my deckbrew once I have one. :)

Well board wipes are gonna work great. Also free value will work great. So for board wipes as many as you can get and even dumb ones like Last One Standing just so you can stay low curve. And free value. Cards like Sunbird's Invocation, Lurking Predators, and Mind's Dilation. Stick to this route and you'll be fine

You need to change WAY more than 15 cards to make this cedh. You mainly need to lower your curve and switch to winning with Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal. You need MUCH more interaction, especially counterspells, and you probably heard it from JLK but even he admits Vedalken Orrery is not a cedh card.

When you lower your curve you should do it by cutting things like Mind's Dilation for things like Delay and Assassin's Trophy and cutting cards like Explosive Vegetation for cards like Mana Crypt and Mox Diamond
