Thought Erasure


Target opponent reveals their hand. You choose a nonland card from it. That player discards that card.

Surveil 1. (Look at the top card of your library. You may put it into your graveyard.)

Can't go wrong with 4x Thought Erasure ! One of the best cards in dimir and esper! Perhaps more of Mission Briefing and less Chemister's Insight or Tyrant's Scorn ?

Dragonlord's Servant , Slumbering Dragon , Fatal Push instead of Tyrant's Scorn in addition with some fetch lands.

Instead of Thought Erasure i would play Inquisition of Kozilek or Thoughtseize .

Abrade is more a sideboard card than mainboard.

Niv-Mizzet, Parun maybe as a sideboard card against control.

The main reason I would go Esper is because of Thought Erasure and Despark and The Elderspell . These cards are so good for their mana cost and abilities.

Nice concept. I really like Nicol Bolas and Chandra together. On playtesting, I found that the mana base was really rough. Too many basics for a 4 color deck. I would get some temples in there to complement the shocklands. I wasn't able to play Kaya's wrath when I needed it, and twice I only had 1 white source with 6 mana out, and couldn't play absorb and Teferi.

Teferi, Time Raveler is good enough to be maindecked here. I would side out some of the spell-only counter spells Quench in particular.

God-Eternal Kefnet works better with removal than with counter spells. The vast majority of the time I had him, I top decked counter spells. Thought Erasure Bedevil and Chemister's Insight are all really good value spells to draw off Kefnet.

Ty, my first idea was to play Vampire and Embodiment of Agonies and the VampKnight for the death touch, the splash was only for Thought Erasure , then i remembered my playset of Thief,... Maybe the mono approach with more Aggro,... Fenlurker is a bit too weak i guess,...

Thought Erasure isn’t legal in a meren deck. Maybe you ment another card

Let me just start with... I love this deck. I saw something similar on CoolStuffInc ( and loved it.

Is aggro an issue with this deck? I would think Ritual of Soot would be a powerful addition here. At the very least in sideboard. Also, in my opinion, Thought Erasure is incredibly powerful and could be mainboarded. Not sure what in for. Also, Connive / Concoct is very good at either slowing down early decks or using the reanimator function... or just getting cards in the graveyard.

You want to beat Simic? Ceratops and his big cousin Carnage Tyrant , maybe Thought Erasure . Also if you can figure a way to get really aggressive early beats, that trumps Frilled Mystic , and then Cast Down or something to take out Nightpack Howler.
