This is the most well named liege because it makes people wrack their minds as to how it got it's ability. Otherwise, most of red's dragon's cost 6+ and so do large sphinxes and leviathans. Therefore, it helps save some mana for a counterspell that you may need later, like during an opponents turn. And, Clout of the Dominus works beautifully with it. Cheap huge monsters, plus shroud, plus mindwrack making them stroinger still sounds good to me.

@StormCroww

A creature is a certain color if it has one or more of those mana symbols in its casting cost (or it says that it's that color, as is the case of Transguild Courier, etc.) So a card like Prince of Thralls for example, is affected by things that have effect on blue cards, red cards, and black cards.

If the card said "You may put a blue and/or red permanent from your hand into play" then it would mean you could put TWO cards into play for the activation cost, not just one. Hopefully this clears up any misunderstanding you may have had with the card's text.

@MarlinFlake: doitpow said "it also has flash (and by extension haste)" meaning that since Mindwrack Liege flashes in a creature from your hand, you can put a creature onto the battlefield on your opponent's turn, so by your turn it will no longer have summoning sickness, which is similar, but not the same, as having haste.

Not quite sure how this is Red/Blue, but it's cool.

I really like the cheap flash ability and the buffs, too, but I don't like how the third ability doesn't suggest having more than 1 Mindwrack in play, such as the Creakwood Liege's third ability does. Sure, the buffs stack, but the flash ability doesn't. All in all, I think he is really good, but there are definitely better lieges.

Edit: After having played with Conflux and Alara Reborn, the Mindwrack Liege has definitely moved up in my opinion. Given that blue and red are enemy colors, you can play any 3 color creature from Alara Reborn, and any of the WUBRG creatures from Conflux for 4CC at instant speed. If you'll excuse me, I have some deckbuilding to do...

Its cmc is fairly high, but when you consider the savings this liege offers, it's well worth it. Playing blue, it is a great boon to be able to wait until the end of the turn before your own to play creatures, saving that juicy mana for counterspells and such, and then having all fresh-new mana available upon untapping, creatures at the ready.

This looks like it should have been green to me :/. Cool, but a very confusing card from a design standpoint.

I love using this with Eternal Dominion, epic doesn't say anything about putting cards into play or drawing, so you get a free card from you'r opponents deck each turn and all you'r creatures have flash and cost 4 manna

I like this card, but I also feel its in the middle of the lieges. I think balefire may be the best, followed by this one. The problem with it is look at its cmc, at 6 I can play several better cards for 5, such as deus of calamity. Secondly, a lot of blue creatures do not cost huge amounts, and red creatures don't usually either, or if they do probably not to much beyond 4 in the first place. Now its true you can "flash" block, or have some huge creature in your deck to put out with this, but what happens if you draw those big creatures and don't have your liege in hand? I wouldn't want to have that high a mana curve and rely on the liege to get them out. Mayael I feel is a much better card, because even though it costs 6 and have to tap, it can also be used on opponents turn and searches your top 5 cards.

Still pretty awesome, but situational. If your playing a deck that is trying to get progenitus out there or what not it might see more play.

This card is an abuse of hybrid mana. It would not be printed as monoblue or monored, so why should it be available to both? It doesn't help that the ability doesn't seem especially blue OR red.

Four mana for a 12/12 Progenitus is nothing to scoff at. This ability is great, I just wish it was the U/W liege and not R/U.
