Mindslaver/Worst Fears/emrakrul promised end + Lethal Vapors = Made an opponent skip all his turns

Similar to above, used a mindslaver to kill someone with their own necro. Another time made them sac all their lands. Mindslaver effects are powerful.

Another play was borrowing my friends R/G omnath deck. Opponent had Aetherflux and 51 life. I had Omnath and a sac outlet on board with some elementals. He activated Aetherflux, I asked if hes sure and he said yes. I then responded by saccing the elementals to kill him with aetherflux trigger on the stack, killing him

Samothrace - This is by no means a lost cause. My "Win Conditions" classification is a card that is only used to win the game. It can still overwhelm the board with Elesh Norn and Elspeth, or Oketra and friends. Mindslaver just bears little to no utility outside of massive threats or slaughtering someone, thus it is a win condition.

As for your endeavor on concocting only Kamigawa legends, that is most impressive. I pride myself on building strange old morons (see Adun and Hakim), but fettering yourself to one block is intriguing.

Samothrace - Ah, I thank you for the upvote. This is my endeavor of having White draw cards.

As for the Mindslaver lock, it requires sticking a seven-mana 4/4, as well as an ensuing ten-mana play. It is fragile, expensive, and terrible. Anyone who groans is doing so at a mono-White deck which exerted seventeen mana. You should be fine.

Moreover, poor Yomiji is sixteen years old and from Kamigawa. You are allowed to be a little degenerate.

Fires really likes activated abilities and 4 drops, which modern has a lot of options for. You are already trying to cast a blue 6 drop, a Time Warp is a lazy way to improve win rate.

I could see trying to abuse Treasure Mage for Mindslaver locks in a list like this, but its more big mana stuff, and getting to the big mana is the whole challenge.

Another option is Aether Vial and Arboreal Grazer / Elvish Pioneer type effects, trying to build a wide board with a bunch of mana and 1 mana creature synergies.

The big thing it needs is a second bounce effect- something like Paradoxical Outcome that lets you build a more reliable plan.

Vallaris on Commander Challenge! Build A Block …

TheMeadiator I dunno, that's the block that has lots of spicy infect and proliferate cards in black and colourless that would go oh so nicely with Skithiryx! Darksteel Plate to make him indestructable, Swords to give him protection from other colours, and so on hahaha. This block also has some fan favourites such as Painful Quandary , Blightsteel Colossus , and Mindslaver too!

For sure I am tempted to build this, but the real question is whether or not this deck will ever be allowed to be played more than once by any given playgroup...

I wanted to add that I'm also curious about the "flex spots"/weakest cards because I'd like to possibly try some of the cheesier cards like Triskelion or Mindslaver as well as thinking of tech spots for cards like Dauthi Voidwalker and Hullbreacher

BrassLord on Torbran Miiiiillllllssssss!

Fun idea! Not sure how married you are to Torbrand as your commander, but Magda, Brazen Outlaw follows with the artifact matters themes, or Purphoros, Bronze-Blooded could be useful to cheat out powerful artifact silver bullets!

If you do stick with the Torbrand train, Pyrohemia can be fits to deal with, lightning bolting every creature and player at instant speed becomes a nightmare!

Trash for Treasure is a fun one as well. Since you have so much artifact recursion, Mindslaver can be a "win con" that can stall your opponents out as you mill them. Memory Jar works in a similar way, able to "mill" 7 cards while setting up your graveyard.

Could also be worth considering some wheel effects. Things like Wheel of Fortune Wheel of Misfortune Wheel of Fate Reforge the Soul Magus of the Wheel and Molten Psyche could be viewed as "mill 7" cards that also set up your own graveyard for recursion. Along that same line of thinking Howling Mine Temple Bell and Font of Mythos can be seen as additional mill effects.

Otherworld Atlas also seems like it could be really fun in your deck! Also, in any deck running the untap keys, I'd recommend giving Thran Dynamo and Gilded Lotus a try, as it can make your mana production explode!

Some food for thought! Really like the idea and direction of your deck!

Mindslaver you. On your turn i tap all of your mana and waste all of your cards then activate my Academy Ruins putting Mindslaver back on top of my deck. Rinse and repeat.
