Mindsmoker has a set pattern of play, or at least he had it when I played

Mid screen he will wait for you to walk slightly back so that he can land a
magic jump.  Walk slightly back then forward again to bait it.  If you
don't move, he will walk back to give himself space for the jump.  Just
walk forward.

Close up he will do a blockstring into throw.  If you can tech he will walk
slightly back and then do and over head.  If you crouch tech with sweep or
low forward, it beats both options.  He uses tick throws A LOT.

In the corner he will jump back a lot.  You can bait this easily (most of
the time you just need to walk forward).  When you're in the corner he will
eventually jump at you.  Guaranteed.  Just wait for it and anti-air.

He doesn't like blocking under pressure.  He will mash DP, backdash or
press jab/crouch tech.  Very easy to frame trap but because of his tendency
to mash you it's safer to just throw and EX fireball on his wake up which
beats backdashing, focus, reversals and button presses.

He sometimes likes to hold up/foward during your offense which gives him a
cross-up if you try to bait a DP.  Bait and beat this with jump-back fierce.

He likes the shoto air x-up tatsu.  How to beat this is char dependent.  If
you block this, he will go for a walk up throw.  If you tech, he will try
to throw again.  Basically 90% of his close up game is throw or bait
reversal, with an occasional focus attack or overhead.  Mash backdash.
