GeminiSpartanX on Traumatised

Removing the Propaganda and Control Magic would make this deck Modern legal, where I think it would have a better chance of winning rather than trying to play it in vintage/legacy. They could be replaced with more mill cards or good creatures like Jace's Phantasm. You could also swap your Wall of Denials with the phantasms and remove white completely from the deck, making it more consistent (5/5 flyers make better blockers than 0/8 walls since most people don't want to lose their creatures to a blocker). The Arrest could be swapped with a Vapor Snag or something to hold off attackers for a turn. I also think 4 Traumatize is too many, since if you play a few mill spells in the earlier turns, the most you'll hit with a 2nd traumatize is 10 or so, which would make it worse than another 5 mana card like Jace, Memory Adept. Going up to 4 Hedron Crabs is also a good idea, perhaps replacing some of the 5-6 mana spells. Anyway, hope some of that helps. Happy milling!

Hope I helped!

Mass Calcify, Arrest, and Reya Dawnbringer for Temple of the False God, Opal Palace and a Plains. (you want atleast 35 lands)

swapping out Manalith for Commander's Sphere (DRAW)

Boros Keyrune for Boros Signet(same thing, faster)

Savage Beating for Aggravated Assault(reusable)

Odric, Lunarch Marshal for Odric, Master Tactician does more for the deck.

Winds of Rath for Austere Command

Here's some things to consider.

I do agree with some of the other comments about mana ramp spells like Kodama's Reach and Cultivate.

I would remove the Oath of Ajani since you only have one planeswalker and the ++ counter isn't that great. If you're going to expand on the ++ counter theme, then look at Fertilid, Spike Weaver, or Spike Feeder and other cards to take advantage of those counters.

I would also remove the Arrest, Choking Restraints, Faith Unbroken, and Squirrel Nest as they don't really push your agenda. Garruk, Primal Hunter and the Sword of Body and Mind are good cards but they feel out of place in this deck. Consider removing Archangel and Serra Angel since they really don't have much beyond flying and/or vigilence.

Also consider Riftstone Portal to give all of your lands access to both colors of mana. Krosan Verge is a great card for this deck. With a Riftstone Portal in your graveyard, Terramorphic Expanse and Evolving Wilds can tap for colored mana.

Cartographer or Tilling Treefolk work great with the Krosan Verge, Terramorphic Expanse, and Evolving Wilds. They also help with the Armageddon.

Jotun Grunt and Gurzigost could give you some graveyard recursion.

K34, I've been trying to get ahold of Darksteel Mutation; however, it is proving to be somewhat more elusive than I believed it would be. I'll definitely slip it in once I get one! I threw an Arrest on a Zur the Enchanter this past weekend and the guy was like, "Welp, I'm screwed." He hung around a few turns, but scooped pretty quickly.

Mzurran, I like where your head is at in regards to the life gain triggers for Karlov of the Ghost Council; however, I have two issues with Righteous Confluence. First, it comes off as expensive to me, I would pay that mana cost for instant speed, but at sorcery speed I feel it is overcosted. Second, and perhaps more importantly, it is not repeatable. Recursion is a big deal in EDH, so I'm opting for a more repeatable option like Sun Droplet.

Rhadamanthus on Skybind combo. Help needed

Closer. The Oblivion Ring-ed Arrest will re-enter the battlefield attached to an object it could legally enchant, but this process doesn't target. This means, for example, that it can be attached to a creature with hexproof or shroud. It can't be attached to something with a protection ability that protects against it (Black Knight, Mistmeadow Skulk, etc.), because one of the specific things protection defends against is attaching things.

Note that a legal object has to be chosen if there's one available. If your opponent is the only one with creatures on the board when their Arrest comes back, they have to attach it to one of their own creatures.

Close. If you cast Oblivion Ring on an opponent's Arrest, and the Ring is later destroyed, they DO get to retarget the Arrest. That means it can be put on the creature it was originally attached to, or to any other creature that would be a legal target as it is cast.

Similarly, when Venser, the Sojourner exiles a friendly aura, that aura returns to play with a target.
