Mind Rot returns in this year’s Magic: the Gathering 2011 Core Set M11.
Mind Rot – 2B
Target player discards two cards.
Mind Rot is stronger in the earlier turns of a game when an opponent still has cards in their hand. As the game progresses, Mind Rot isn’t a card you’ll want to see because it doesn’t directly affect the battlefield and becomes useless when your opponent has no cards left in their hand.
Mind Rot pairs naturally with Liliana’s Caress, Duress, and Liliana’s Specter to help build the start of a discard based deck.
Two huge problems with creating a constructed deck using a discard strategy as your main foundation are Obstinate Baloth and Vengevine. Making one of your opponents discard either of these will be of more benefit to them than to you.
Mind Rot is featured in the Magic: the Gathering 2011 Core Set Blades of Victory Intro Pack.
Several other black cards from the Magic: the Gathering 2011 Core Set include Stabbing Pain, Duress, Mind Rot, Assassinate, Nantuko Shade, Demon of Death’s Gate, Dark Tutelage, Viscera Seer, Phylactery Lich, Grave Titan, Necrotic Plague, Nether Horror, Nightwing Shade, Liliana’s Specter, Liliana’s Caress, and Reassembling Skeleton
There are a few new and old cards that have gotten the boot from M11. You can also check out the new M11 artwork, M11 booster packs, M11 Intro Packs, and a new line of Ultra Pro products featuring M11 art.
