Opponent cracks a fetch and after they get their land, you respond with Archive Trap then Mission Briefing and recast archive trap. Milled 26 cards for 2 mana. There are fringe cases where mb is better but not many. Also, it is better with Force of Will for legacy or commander.

It's okay to be slow.

It's okay to be uninteractive.

It's not okay to be both.

If you want to win with grindy enchantments, you are going to need a whole lot of control cards to make sure you survive your opponent's generally, much faster stretegy.

If you want to win with mill with minnimal interaction, you should drop the ecnhantments and make an Archive Trap - Mission Briefing list. It actually has the potential to win early game.

Until you you either speed up or get interactive. You are probably not going to win any games.

This list has helped me improve my Esper Mill so thank you! I really like use of Ethereal Haze rather than Darkness or Holy Day! I may also end stealing the Fragmentize, although I may stick with my Disenchants for the instant speed. The only suggestion I have is one recently made to me which is maybe some Mission Briefing for the Archive Trap recasts. Really cool deck though!

Psychorave I will admit that I was curious about using Mission Briefing but didn't ever give it too much thought. Gonna do some testing running them rather than Leyline of Anticipation since it's use here is minimal and the prospect of more Archive Traps is exciting.

It's enjoyable to see the thought of throwing in white to Mill. I have been trying to throw the idea in myself for a while now. My main deck is Mill and always has been. One card I found great with Archive Trap is Mission Briefing. Unlike Snapcaster Mage. You can cast cards for their alternative cost. Only downfall is it's two Blue. I look forward to seeing the directions you take with this deck.
