S1ydevi1 on Phenax- Tell Me Again Why Mill is Bad

12 hours ago

Most recent win involved putting Pemmin's Aura on Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and having Phenax in play. One opponent had Induced Amnesia on them, so I focused on milling the other out with Lazav, who quickly turned into a Carnifex Demon and they were both milled out swiftly after that.

Hi He_Who_Hungers,

If possible, I'd like to keep the average CMC of this deck on the low side. Carnifex Demon and Grim Poppet both fit with the deck's strategy, but each is rather expensive to cast and I have cheaper alternatives.

I love your idea of adding Retribution. It will ensure that my creatures without persist will also be able to recur multiple times if Mikaeus is on the field. I will replace Murder with it. Many thanks for your input!

Mikaeus is cool. I run him in my 60-card demon deck, mainly because of his synergy with sacrifice effects. One thing I can recommend is Carnifex Demon, as it comes into play with -1/-1 counters which offset the +1/+1 counter from Undying, making it practically immortal. Same goes for Grim Poppet, although that may be a bit on the costly side for what it does. Lastly, you could include Retribution of the Ancients in order to remove any +1/+1 counters from your creatures on instant speed in order to guarantee their safe return from Mikaeus' undying.

For Panharmonicon i will abuse the following cards:Carnifex Demon + Champion of Lambholt + Deepglow Skate + Eternal Witness + Fathom Mage + Ghave, Guru of Spores + Ichor Rats + Master Biomancer + Mikaeus, the Lunarch + Solemn Simulacrum + Woodfall Primus + Astral Cornucopia + Contagion Engine + Everflowing Chalice

Those cards will all trigger an additional time thanks to Panharmonicon. But additionally they will also trigger twice following cards: Doubling Season + Cathars' Crusade + Aura Shards

You have to know that the cards entering the battlefield also triggers his own etb effect twice. In that case cards like Solemn or Astral Cornucopia will get even more value !

I had Corrupted Conscience also in the deck before but had to cut it to make space for other cmc5-drops that fit more into that deck imo. But if you have any reasonable suggestion which card i should cut for Corrupted Conscience I would really appreciate it. After some time you get lost in your own deck though :/

no need for giving up black mana with a Forest for Bloodbond March when Woodland Cemetery and Overgrown Tomb exist. That's plenty green spread for one green mana needed, for a recurring effect. That should be a 3 or 4 of though should it go in.

Other fun things you could diversify to. Diversity is fun when you're tutoring the demon you want anyway.

I hadn't even looked at the list before I upvoted. Then I looked at the list. I love it! Might I suggest some Phyrexians to aid in the Cyber-Demonic Look? Body Snatcher, Diabolic Servitude, Flesh Reaver (looks like Pinky... not a great card though so Understandable if it's an auto out), No Rest for the Wicked, Soul Burn, Carnifex Demon, Enslave, Nested Ghoul, Phyrexian Rager, Planar Portal or Planar Bridge. Of course these are merely theme suggestions. Overall I love the look of this deck.
