Euron just pinched his nose and looked him in the eye as the life went out of him. I think in this might be the blueprint for Euron's victory, how he takes Westeros. Set a spark and let the dwarf rat men and women fight it out, plague and winter do it's thing, all the while laughing at their folly with the white fire handed woman, then when nearly everything is destroyed come in and just pinch the nose shut. He doesn't care the land he's taken, doesn't care for the men he's given it to or that he leads, they're all just a means to an end, disposable. And you know those Ironborn of his are going to end up getting royally fucked sooner or later, his gifts are always poison, he basically says so himself in this chapter, he won it and that will last forever, but if it's lost he won't be there for it, it'll be they who lose it. Regarding Euron cutting out everyone's tongue, I assume it's just because he's mind raping them, skin changing them, and doesn't want the secret to get out. While there may be some measure of passive mind control while he's not specifically in there, I think it's primarily all about information, like the Dusky woman, he wants everything they know, to tap their memories. It might also be a two-way street, in that jumping in them gives them an insight into his mind, stuff he doesn't want getting out into the wild so he cuts their tongue so they can't reveal his secrets.
