Censor Discussion

Treasure Cruise could be a great addition for you and Censor for counterspells.

Have you considered adding Choked Estuary or Drowned Catacomb for dual lands. Your tapped lands seem a little slow.

Vampire of the Dire Moon doesn't seem like it fits in this deck.

LeBonco22 I can see what you mean. And I haven't been overly impressed with it. I might want more removal though. In testing, the only thing I feel that this deck has a poor time against is hyper aggressive, go wide strategies and against other Thoughtseize decks.

I am not a fan of Tasigur all that much because his ability is kind of lackluster, they would just give you back a spell that doesn't impact the board (ie. Opt or Censor), yeah it's a redraw, but 5 mana to draw 1 is "bleh". Filling the graveyard is also quite counter-intuitive as you don't want to fill it so much that you can't win with just casting 1 Inverter. As for Necropolis Fiend. It looks good on paper, but it takes a lot of effort to get there and it is quite slow on the activation due to you having to have delved most of your graveyard away just to cast him most of the time.

Definitely think there may be some wiggle room there to cut the Drowns. I'll be looking for something else to slot in. I also was thinking about moving the 2 Brazen Borrowers to the main. For 2 reasons: 1) it can stave off any particular threat (that's not a land) that my removal can't hit, and 2) adds more devotion for Oracle.

I really like your list. The low 2 drop slot is hard. I feel like you're already playing the good ones. I would maybe recommend considering: Condescend ? Maybe even: Into the Roil or Blink of an Eye . I feel like once certain threats are in play your deck doesn't have a lot of answers to them and late game bouncing a mid-range threat and drawing a card is super relevant. An argument could also be made for Censor and Lat-Nam's Legacy ? Eh?

For your threats, I really like Brineborn Cutthroat . I'm also a fan of looter Jace Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip. I personally would maybe play them over the goblins. They come in a turn sooner and I feel like they're both viable threats even if they don't start producing tokens. Not to make your list literally the list by WindyDelcarlo, but I'm also a big fan of Dack Fayden and Saheeli, Sublime Artificer .Taking a tinker'd out target or Crucible of Worlds with Dack Fayden feels reeaaallly good. I could see the goblins you have maybe being a bigger threat than Saheeli, because you don't always have a relevant threat to make a copy of. I'm also a sucker for Baral, Chief of Compliance .

Two cards that I think could be better slots are: Dive Down and Ionize . I think I would value things like: Disallow , or Supreme Will . I also like Divert better than Dive Down . It's more versatile and will probably save your creatures from the same spells as well as win you a counter war.

I would also strongly urge you to play Blood Moon and Magus of the Moon . Maybe Back to Basics .

Negate and Disdainful Stroke in the main seems pretty rough; what about Censor or Supreme Will ?

Magnanimous on Bug Control

Why no one mana plays? There are plenty out there in your colors. To name a few, Deathrite Shaman , Thoughtseize , Fatal Push , Spell Pierce , Spectral Sailor .

Also, there are plenty of BUG decks already made, I think the idea of a UG tempo/control deck is pretty interesting though. You could replace some of your black removal with bounce spells and add in a few more creatures or planeswalkers to add pressure or to deal with opposing creatures. Courser of Kruphix , Tireless Tracker , and Thing in the Ice  Flip come to mind. In any deck (but especially this one) Brazen Borrower will be amazing, I really like Frilled Mystic and Hydroid Krasis , but they might be a bit too expensive to run 8 total. If I were to make a UG tempo deck, I'd have Thing in the Ice  Flip, Brazen Borrower , and maybe two other creatures and pack the rest of the deck with Opt , Unsummon , Censor , etc. with room for a few green bombs of your choice ( Tireless Tracker and Hydroid Krasis are good for that).

I would add Wall of Omens . It's a payoff card for Drift, doesn't validate removal, and helps you slow the game down a bit so you can get to the state you want.

Kitchen Finks is also a good option. Slows the game down and prevents you from having those turns where all you can do is cycle 3 times. But Ultimately, I can see why you wouldn't run it. I'm all over Omens, though.

I see you added Censor that was my last suggestion. seems great here.

Haurent on U/R Standard Mill, budget

Hey there! I know this deck is kinda old since ixalan rotated out of standard, but I can help you with this R/U mill vision you have. So first of all if your boyfriend is playing a deck around Approach of the Second Sun something you wanna have around are counterspells. Now we have counterspells that mill in Thought Collapse and Didn't Say Please . Splashing red you also have Ionize . Following that, R/U decks usually have good mechanics to draw cards, which is an excellent method to mill down an opponent with Sphinx's Tutelage , which should be accompanied with several card draw engines. Cards like Radical Idea , Chemister's Insight and even cycling cards of your own like Censor or Hieroglyphic Illumination could work. Mill usually struggles with board pressence, so cards like Sweltering Suns , Hour of Devastation work okay as boardwipes. If you want to add some pressence of your own cards like Electrostatic Field , Crackling Drake , Murmuring Mystic or Guttersnipe can lend you a hand as either blockers or as a way to put pressure on the opponent.

Regarding sideboard, Mill struggles A LOT against aggro, so early-game blockers, boardwipes and counterspells to disrupt tempo are your best ally.

If you have other questions feel free to contact me, I play a lot of mill and everyone hates me for it, but I enjoy it.

I don't think Sage's Row Savant is worth a slot in really any deck, and especially not this one as you are not beating down and you have the opportunity to basically blank your opponent's removal without it. I think one or two Perilous Vault is a fantastic idea, really completes the deck IMO and it does have a pedigree in control decks. Radiant Fountain is also a great idea if you aren't going to lean into the Mystic Sanctuary package and the ability to cast Warden if you're playing it.

I think this is deck is really shaping up into something uniquely powerful!

If you're not into Quench, Censor or Warrant / Warden (just ignore the Warden side) might fill the 2 drop hole. Or it might even be worth slotting Golden Egg back in for the great Disappearing Act combo.
