I agree with TheVectornaut.

You could also utilize Evanescent Intellect on the Hedron Crab for the turns where you dont have any interaction(Or are sitting on an Archive Trap). Drowner Initiate would also be a pretty solid choice.

I think the weakest cards in the deck are probably Dreadwaters and Chant of the Skifsang. Rather than waiting until turn 5 or 7 for Dreadwaters to be as good as Tome Scour or Mind Sculpt, I'd want recurring mill triggers from a creature. Hedron Crab is the go-to option, but Manic Scribe could be built around too. As for the Chant, you could use a Commit, Anchor to the Aether, or something to that effect to put threats onto an opponent's library and immediately mill them. If you're worried about cards you don't want in graveyards, Surgical Extraction is a tech option. I'd definitely mainboard Visions of Beyond over Divination since it will almost always give you more resources for less mana. An interesting alternative is Skyscribing since it forces the opponent to draw from their thinning deck while interacting favorably with Sphinx's Tutelage. Finally, I'd look at including some Ghost Quarters. The card is just good in general, but it really gets nasty with Archive Trap.

If you can get enough white down, Swords to Plowshares is also good. You can force them to search by using Path to Exile, to trigger Archive Trap. rageface, I would be intrested to see you UBw build.

Archive Trap - Yu-Gi-Oh!

Have I gone too far?

I would recommend 4x Archive Trap, and the new Fraying Sanity. Jace's Erasure seems too slow, and you might like some card draw - Visions of Beyond is great.

PurpleGame0 thanks for the suggestion!

I'm not a fan of Archive Trap, if the lock is in place, I'm giving the opponent a chance to hit something which can come back from the raveyard (dredge/zombie/flashback/etc). I'm not entirely sure what else it does in this kind of deck tbh?

Unless We go an alternative plan and aim for a mill deck with a lock as alt/wincon.

Have you considered Archive Trap? If you have Maleren out it's a free mill 13.

However, if you're facing a graveyard deck, it's just a dead card.
