PickleNutz on The Mill is ILL

2 weeks ago

I feel like Aggro and Mid-Range decks arent going to be controlled enough for this deck to consistently win, but you might have a solid deck against Tron or Living End decks of you can keep their lands off the field through mill.

Heres some suggestions I think would work for you...

It isnt as efficient as some other choices but provides a solid turn one mill spell that can be paid for by either mana in the deck. I think it may be an important card for this deck because you dont have a solid turn one mill spell.

This is a one of card for the deck but essentially wins games.

This is a great way to control an opponents land, which is really important for mill.

She cant be Fatal pushed, abrupt decayed, Lightning bolted, etc. its a fat body creature with built in removal for two mana. Maybe a good sideboard, maybe a good main board.

A board wipe and alternate win condition for mill all in one. Also an early game blocker that avoids Bolts.

I dont think milk is quite competitive in modern at the moment, but it certainly can win some matchups and it is really fun to play. Good luck! If you take it out for a spin at FNM I would like to see how you do.

21 lands is not enough for an Avatar of Woe, and you won't get the "huge ramp" from liliana until way late in the game. with your current decklist, it'll happen by turn 7 at best.

I've got a similar God deck that runs less off the Enchantment bit and more off indestructible. I've found a lot of use out of the Avatars like Avatar of Woe and Avatar of Slaughter

Also had great success with the Praetor's, which are kinda like Phyrexian Gods. Of course the trick with them is to keep them on the field for more than a turn...

DragonFaceEater on Master of Cascade (Yidris)

I'd recommend some evoke creatures. If you evoke them, it counts as casting the spell and the original CMC, but you pay much less than it. Other cards that have reduced CMC like avatars and Delve creatures are good too. Some of the ones I'd recommend are AEthersnipe, with decent removal with six CMC, Avatar of Might, since with your low amount of creatures the condition will almost always be met, plus an 8/8 trample for GG and an 8 CMC will be able to end games pretty easily and hopefully cascade into an extra turn effect or similar and kill someone right off the bat, Avatar of Woe is a sweet repeatable removal spell, again for just BB considering most of the time by late-ish game you'll have that condition met, and Mulldrifter, a staple even not in yidris decks. Also, cards that give your yidris double strike or hard to block can help get oyur yidris to hit more often, and sometimes more than once, giving your cards double cascade. Cards like Psychotic Fury, Temur Battle Rage, Uncaged Fury, Assault Strobe, Runes of the Deus, Berserkers' Onslaught, Blood Mist, Sangrite Surge and Rage Reflection all grant double strike, and Aggravated Assault, Fury of the Horde, Relentless Assault, Seize the Day, and World at War all grant an additional combat. Aqueous Form, Shimmering Wings, Slip Through Space, Shizo, Death's Storehouse, and Amphin Pathmage all make your yidris harder to block so you can get triggers more easily.

Ghoulraiser on Black Death

I would take out Reiver Demon for Deathbringer Regent it hits more creatures and leaves you with a dragon.

add Bojuka Bog and Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth

i would take out Quicksilver Amulet and [virtue's ruin] because you have the mana to hard cast things and ruin only hits 1/5 the creatures all your other removal does. replace them with Leyline of the Void & Helm of Obedience which is an infinite mill a player combo.

take out [heartless summoning, again, because you have so much ramp anyways. i think Isochron Scepter would be a good add because it you have instant kill spells like Go for the Throat also Victim of Night hits alot of creatures for a 2 mana instant, another good option for scepter could be Darkness.

i think you should take out Languish and add Toxic Deluge because it gets around indestructible creatures

replace Visara the Dreadful with Avatar of Woe you can get it out easier and it does the same thing.

Gravepurge can clutter your top deck if you have more than 1 targets and you have to wait to draw it. i think Animate Dead would be a better choice

take out Rag Dealer since he can die so easily and you will put in leyline anyway so you get your value. add in Exsanguinate it can get you your life back and it most cases due to your mana be able to kill your opponents.

Price of Knowledge can be kind of clunky, instead, i think Mindslicer would be better beacause it puts everyone in a top deck situation especially after youve been killing all their resources on field

other neat synergies you could try to find room for is Contamination with either [reassembling skeleton] or Bitterblossom to lock out the filthy nonblack players

another triskellion kill is Necrotic Ooze and Phyrexian Devourer. if devourer and skellion is in the gy ooze can use the devourer affect to be huge af, then use triskelions effect to remove its counters to kill someone while the devourer ability is on the stack. its kind of a last ditch sort of thing but it works

Magus of the Coffers works with your Umbral Mantle for infinite mana. also if magus and pila-pala are in the graveyard then [necrotic ooze] becomes infinite mana by itself so you can you that Exsanguinate mentioned earlier to kill your opposition

DerpDeer on Orzhov Sangromancy

Another good combo I also found that I think would work in your deck is In Garruk's Wake+Grave Betrayal+Archfiend of Depravity. When you cast any of those, if you cast something like Army of the Damned you would also almost definitely win the game. Another great card I saw is Avatar of Woe. It would also work very well with Grave Betrayal. Also, one last thing, Sanguine Bond works on multiplayer games also, as the target can change each time the effect is triggered. But now that I look at it, I don't think you need it as you do have, as you said, 4 Vizkopa Guildmage.

Good looking/fun deck!

With Avatar of Woe should consider including Thornbite Staff which is an auto board wipe for all your opponents and on Mairsil could be amazing to allow even more shenannigans with it allowing her to untap.

Rhystic Study or Magus of the Bazaar would also be a good add for more card draw.

Magus of the Unseen for artifact theft/control.

Hope these help!
