Quote from Xyx »In the case of Cruel Entertainment I'd like to point out that you can ask the table "who would really like to mess up X's position?" and probably get some takers, especially people who are in a position that is resilient to mindslavering. And then there won't be a ceasefire. So maybe you can't mess up two players, but you can probably still mess up one. Still better to cast actual Mindslaver or Worst Fears (or none of the above), I guess.
Quote from Xyx »The partner commanders do basically give you a 9-card opening hand, even if 1-2 of those 9 aren't the best ever. For some reason, the enemy color pairs all got two partners, so if any one of those strikes your fancy as a commander on his/her/its/xer own, you get a 9th card for free. You don't need to partner up to four colors. You could partner Kydele, Chosen of Kruphix with Thrasios, Triton Hero and get your infinite mana finisher for free.
