How about these combos. Maybe Bloodchief Ascension + Mindcrank. There is a combo with sanguine bind that I can't remember... hope this helps!

If you're looking to make milling your major strategy, there are some great cards you're missing out on. With combat-based effects, you'd definitely like Trepanation Blade, Sword of Body and Mind, and on Mirko Vosk, Fireshrieker.

As a fail-safe, you might want to run Mindcrank. It can infinitely combo with Duskmantle Guildmage and Bloodchief Ascension, just in case you're in a tight spot. I'm also a fan of Dreamborn Muse and Mesmeric Orb.

An interesting interaction happens between Altar of the Brood and Undead Alchemist if that's the kind of thing you'd like to play.

First of all +1 just for playing Seizan. I love that guy, he was one of my favorite commanders.

As for suggestions I would recommend Mindcrank. It is a decent card in its own right that could help you deck someone. But with Bloodchief Ascension it becomes an infinite loop do life drain and mill.

Black Vise is another viseling effect that can only hit one player. But it can be played on turn 1.

Hopefully you like the suggestions mate.

I accidentally put my phone in my pocket without putting it in sleep mode. I don't have Bloodchief Ascension, let alone multiples. Are they expensive? Got any you aren't using? I only list cards in the deck that I physically have, IRL.

Bloodchief Ascension is often more consistant than Duskmantle Guildmage - but it takes another kind of build to really utilize. But for something like this, it could still be a great addition.
