In general, Mind Control.

In a three-color deck SB, Vapor Snare.

Vapor snare is much worse.

Bant should have no trouble getting 2 blue.

My short answer would be that.

But then there is also factors like, is blue one of your main colors (i.e. are you playing like UB splash r etc.) or are you playing Emeria Angel, that could change what card you should run.

"Should" and "reality" are often two different things.

Bant is more G and W than it is U. You WILL have 2 white by turn 4 so you can play Emeria Angel and Baneslayer Angel the next turn. Sometimes that means you really won't have that second blue by turn 5. Therefore, for Bant, Vapor Snare > Mind Control.

He said he was playing Bant. So i assume it has emeria angel. But that's still not a good reason to force yourself to bounce a land every turn.

Play the mind control imo. i dont think vapor snare is all that good without having something like kabira crossroads, sejiri refuge and the like.

If your build has BOTH emeria and knight of reliq + land package (with the above mentioned crossroads and refuge) then it would be worth running the vapor snare.

Well my thinking was Vapor snare. The UU cost doesn't bother me and the landfall fx with admonition angel/lotus cobra/emeria angel +1kabira xroads and 2 refuges....seems vapor snare would be best in this deck.

I suppose your right, depends on deck.

So if you using landfall VS>Mind Control?
