Blighted Cataract Discussion
1 month ago
Swapped out Trophy Mage for Chromatic Lantern. Also swapped out Archmage Ascension for Burnished Hart. I need more ramp and I don't think Archmage Ascension will ever produce anything valuable. Blighted Cataract and all three deserts are swapped out for 4 islands and Tolaria West. Eventually I'll have more utility lands so I want tolaria in there ahead of time.

I originally had those Soulfire's when they were like $10-$20, so now that the deck is very affordable, I think it would be great for an entry level deck. What I want to do to improve this deck is:
- 1x Blighted Cataract
- 1x Desert of the Fervent
- 1x Desert of the True
- 1x Searing Blood
- 2x Shock
- 2x Firebolt
- 1x Spellheart Chimera
- 1x Unsubstantiate
- 2x Reflector Mage

Boundless Realms triggers landfall multiple times while thinning out your deck. Seer's Sundial is good for card advantage. Sunstone and Constant Mists will halt aggro decks in their place and buy you valuable time. Dust Bowl will help deal with annoying non-basic lands. Also Sunstone, Constant Mists, Dust Bowl, Blighted Cataract, Blighted Woodland and World Breaker all work well with Crucible of Worlds and Ramunap Excavator. Simic Growth Chamber is also good.

Holy card draw, Batman!
But for real, this looks super fun! A couple suggestions:
Desolate Lighthouse and Blighted Cataract seem like good includes. Low opportunity cost to play - just cut a couple basics. You may want to consider Boseiju, Who Shelters All as well since this is a spell-heavy deck.
Additionally, I'm not sure Day's Undoing works the way you want it to. Since Locust God's trigger would go on the stack in response to drawing the cards, it would exist on the stack before you hit the "end the turn" clause, and it would get removed and you would get no locusts :(. Maybe replace it with Arcanis the Omnipotent or Mercurial Chemister? Not great suggestions, but better than Day's Undoing here.

I'm the guy on the other side of the table (probably with an RG Pummeler deck), so please take my thoughts with healthy skepticism!
But it seems like turning on Delirium for Manic Scribe would be very important, so you may want to add some more Vessel of Paramnesia or Sac Lands (e.g., Mirrorpool, Blighted Cataract, or maybe even Evolving Wilds).
Also in case you hadn't already seen it, I wanted to point out a recent Mono-U Mill article and videos by SaffronOlive. Might be worth a look!
Finally, I love Thing in the Ice (though my experience with it is all in UR Control) and it seems like Baral, Chief of Compliance would be very strong with it ... but it might be better in a more "pure" Control build (with more Instant/Sorceries and only 4-8 Creatures).
Good luck (and good skill!) with the brew!
