Flow of Ideas is great card draw in mono-blue. Slinn Voda, the Rising Deep is also a Whelming Wave (although it's a creature and not a good polymorph target), and so is Scourge of Fleets . Volition Reins instead of Lay Claim unless you're super attached to the cycling. Budget options instead of Blightsteel Colossus are Ixidron , Scourge of Fleets , Colossus of Akros , Broodstar , Darksteel Juggernaut or Stormtide Leviathan .

Okay, That makes sense. Then how about something more permanent. Let's say I've again used Volition Reins to take a creature but an opponent then uses Beguiler of Wills to take it from me. Because the beguiler happened later, does that mean the opponent keeps the creature, or does the enchantment's passive "You control enchanted creature" return it to me?

dirkinzs on Who gets control?

I'm working on a Commander deck based around taking control of my opponent's things and I've run into a little rules question. Let's say I've enchanted an opponent's creature with Volition Reins. It reads "You control enchanted creature". Then let's say my opponent plays Bond of Passion which says "Gain control of enchanted creature until end of turn".

Am I right in the following interpretation of events?

My opponent plays Bond of Passion and gains control of the creature. Then, as a state-based action the creature is returned to me due to my Volition Reins. However, if my opponent had Ashnod's Altar out they would in fact have time to sacrifice the creature before it returned to me.

Take out: Body Double, Diluvian Primordial, Frost Titan, Identity Thief, Teferi, Mage of Zhalfir (cuz screw Teferi), Supplant Form, Back from the Brink, Volition Reins, Chromatic Lantern (cuz reasons).

Yeah so obviously you need to take out some more cards, especially to draw some cards cuz you don't have enough of that but here's a start

To be clear on one point: any auras that specifically say "Enchant creature" will fall off if the creature stops being a creature. An aura like Volition Reins or In Bolas's Clutches will stay attached because it can enchant any type of permanent.

Haha thanks for the suggestions! I've opted to replace Control Magic effects with removal for now as reanimating the corpses with my commander achieves pretty much the same thing :p I'm considering Take Possession, Volition Reins or Dragonlord Silumgar to steal PWs though!

Expropriate is definitely worth a slot, I just don't use it cause it's not very exciting for me. Same reason I don't run Consecrated Sphinx.

Volition Reins seems better to me than Confiscate, though i can understand being it's harder to cast. Just thought i'd mention it.
