Mindslaver rulings:

12/1/2004 : You control them for the entire turn, from the untap step to the cleanup step.

12/1/2004 : You could gain control of yourself using Mindslaver, but gaining control of yourself doesn’t really do anything.

You can spend mana in the player’s mana pool only on that player’s spells and abilities. The mana in your mana pool can be spent only on your spells and abilities.

12/1/2004 : You choose which spells the other player casts, and make all decisions as those spells are cast and when they resolve. For example, you choose the target for that player’s Shock, and what card that player gets with Diabolic Tutor.

12/1/2004 : You choose which activated abilities the other player activates, and make all decisions as those abilities are activated and when they resolve. For example, you can have your opponent sacrifice his or her creatures to his or her Nantuko Husk or have your opponent’s Timberwatch Elf give your blocking creature +X/+X.

12/1/2004 : You make all decisions for the other player’s triggered abilities, including what they target and any decisions made when they resolve.

7/13/2016 : While controlling another player, you can see all cards in the game that player can see. This includes cards in that player’s hand, face-down cards that player controls, and any cards in that player’s library the player may look at.

7/13/2016 : Controlling a player doesn’t allow you to look at that player’s sideboard. If an effect instructs that player to choose a card from outside the game, you can’t have that player choose any card.
