I'm an amateur player in Magic: The Gathering (Modern format) and I was looking for a card that makes an enemy play a spell from my hand. For example if I had a "Discard your hand" card I could make him play that as if it was him (making him pay the mana cost or not).

I'm aware Hive Mind enchantement exists; are there any other cards with a similar effect?

Thank you

  • @deworde: Indeed - the example given just gets you Wit's End at a 6 mana discount, but an off-colour Pact works just as well and is a lot more evil. – AlexC Jun 22 '15 at 8:40
  • Shared Fate could also do the trick instead of Knowledge Pool :) – Ivo Beckers Jun 22 '15 at 10:36
