Magic: The Gathering: The Best Commons of Dissension

Updated on August 21, 2020
Jan Michael Ong profile image

I have been playing Magic: The Gathering since 1994 and have won a few draft tournaments in MTGO and MTG Arena.

Dissension has some quality commons that have mechanics such as Forecast, Hellbent, and Graft. These mechanics enhance your arsenal and give you more gameplay options.

Delirium Skeins

Delirium Skeins is a black sorcery that costs two colorless and one black mana.

Each player discards three cards.

This is devastating as a third turn in a discarder deck. A first turn Thoughtseize, second turn Hymn to Tourach and third turn Delirium Skeins leaves your opponent's hand decimated and leaves him in an uphill battle.

Seal of Doom

Seal of Doom is a black enchantment that costs two colorless and one black mana.

Sacrifice Seal of Doom: Destroy target nonblack creature. It can’t be regenerated.

This is a nice removal spell that you can place in the battlefield ahead of when you need it. This leaves your mana open later on for other things.

Vision Skeins

Vision Skeins is a blue instant that costs one colorless and one blue mana.

Each player draws two cards.

This is a good addition to mill decks as it helps thin out your opponent's cards even faster. If you combine this with Teferi's Tutelege you will get to mill an additional four cards as well.

Utopia Sprawl

Utopia Sprawl is a green enchantment that costs one green mana.

It is an aura that can only enchant a Forest.

As Utopia Sprawl enters the battlefield, choose a color.

Whenever enchanted Forest is tapped for mana, its controller adds an additional one mana of the chosen color.

This is an excellent mana acceleration card. It not only costs low but it is also versatile in terms of producing any mana color.

Cackling Flames

Cackling Flames is a red instant that costs three colorless and one red mana.

Cackling Flames deals 3 damage to any target.

Hellbent — Cackling Flames deals 5 damage instead if you have no cards in hand.

This card provides decent value as red usually runs out of cards fairly quickly.

Seal of Fire

Seal of Fire is a red enchantment that costs one red mana.

Sacrifice Seal of Fire: It deals 2 damage to any target.

This is a nice removal spell / direct damage that you can place in the battlefield ahead of when you need it. This leaves your mana open later on for other things.

Guardian of the Guildpact

Guardian of the Guildpact is a white creature that costs three colorless and one white mana.

It has two power and three toughness.

It has protection from monocolored.

This card is hard to get rid of as it is immune to a lot of removal spells as many are monocolored. It also cannot be blocked by monocolored creatures. It can also be used as a defensive creature as it can block monocolored creatures and damage will be rendered to zero.

Overrule

Overrule is a white and blue instant that costs X colorless, one white and one blue mana.

Counter target spell unless its controller pays X. You gain X life.

This is a decent counterspell as it not only counters a spell but gains you life in the process.

Minister of Impediments

Minister of Impediments is a white and blue creature that costs two colorless and one white and / or one blue mana.

It has one power and one toughness.

You can tap Minister of Impediments to tap target creature.

This is a decent creature as it can stop your opponent's creatures cold.

Gobhobbler Rats

Gobhobbler Rats is a black and red creature that costs one black and one red mana.

It has two power and two toughness.

Hellbent — As long as you have no cards in hand, Gobhobbler Rats gets +1/+0 and has “Pay one black mana: Regenerate Gobhobbler Rats.”

Without Hellbent, Gobhobbler Rats is a mere Grizzly Bears but with Hellbent it becomes a formidable three power and two toughness with regenerate.

Rakdos Ickspitter

Rakdos Ickspitter is a black and red creature that costs one colorless, one black and one red mana.

It has one power and one toughness.

Tap Rakdos Ickspitter and it deals 1 damage to target creature and that creature’s controller loses 1 life.

This is a variant of the Prodigal Sorcerer but can be more powerful in certain situations.

Wrecking Ball

Wrecking Ball is a black and red instant that costs twq colorless, one black and one red mana.

Destroy target creature or land.

Unlike most land destruction spells which are sorceries, this is an instant and doubles as both creature kill and land destruction.

Coiling Oracle

Coiling Oracle is a green and blue creature that costs one green and one blue mana.

It has one power and one toughness.

When Coiling Oracle enters the battlefield, reveal the top card of your library. If it’s a land card, put it onto the battlefield. Otherwise, put that card into your hand.

Coiling Oracle provides you tremendous card advantage. If you pull a non-land card, you get more cards in your hand and if it is a land, you increase your mana base.

Shielding Plax

Shielding Plax is a green and blue enchantment that costs two colorless and one green or blue mana.

When Shielding Plax comes into play, draw a card.

Enchanted creature gains hexproof.

This card is an excellent protection for your creatures and replaces itself via a card draw.

Azorius Signet

Azorius Signet is an artifact that costs two colorless to cast.

You pay one mana and tap Azorius Signet to produce one white and one blue mana.

This card is more like a mana filtering artifact and cannot produce mana without payment.

This is excellent for helping to ensure you would not get mana deprived of white or blue mana.

Rakdos Signet

Rakdos Signet is an artifact that costs two colorless to cast.

You pay one mana and tap Rakdos Signet to produce one black and one red mana.

This card is more like a mana filtering artifact and cannot produce mana without payment.

This is excellent for helping to ensure you would not get mana deprived of black or red mana.

Simic Signet

Simic Signet is an artifact that costs two colorless to cast.

You pay one mana and tap Simic Signet to produce one green and one blue mana.

This card is more like a mana filtering artifact and cannot produce mana without payment.

This is excellent for helping to ensure you would not get mana deprived of green or blue mana.

Azorius Chancery

Azorius Chancery is a non-basic land that comes into play tapped.

Azorius Chancery produces one white and one blue mana.

Azorius Chancery is part of the "bounce land" cycle where you need to bounce a land back to your hand to play them.
