Chronic Flooding Discussion

Darcis on Mill to Build

3 days ago

Mill is a really interesting deck to work with. When you play it, you need to be as efficient as possible when putting cards into graveyards. For this reason, creatures are less important. Cards like Tome Scour are efficient in terms of cards milled to mana cost ratio, whereas Nightveil Specter may only mill 1 or 2 cards for 3 mana.

Some really good inclusions for any mill deck are Mind Funeral and Visions of Beyond. Funeral is more efficient than Mind Grind, and works a little faster. Breaking is also a very efficient card, but might require a better manabase to work all the time. Chronic Flooding and Curse of the Bloody Tome are slow and pretty clunky.

If your budget allows it, you might want to find a couple of better lands, but it isn't completely necessary.

Hope these suggestions help, and make sure to enjoy the look on your opponent's face when their library is out of cards! :P

You might want to look into Perplex, either they get one spell and no hand, or a hand and a countered spell. Also, you might want to try and lower your mana costs. I would go for cheaper counters over counters that also mill. Mana Leak, Dissipate, Remand if you can get it.

Chronic Flooding is worth a look, it makes tapping lands a lot more painful, especially if you counter whatever they tapped for.

I would also swap the Encroaching Wastes out for either Tectonic Edge or Ghost Quarter

Done some Mana Fixing! This deck is now 100% out of my price range (woo). It might not be perfect so any thoughts on how the land base can be improved even more are greatly appreciated as I have no experience with special lands.A note on Chronic Flooding , it doesn't actually do much in the forms of slowing mana, as it is only a price of 3 cards for the land. It may be slightly annoying, but 3 cards is not significant enough to make it playable.

I love all the suggestions and I will work was I can in the deck, to try and make this a better deck while Chronic Flooding can be a slow mill I do love the idea and thought of it in Rtr standard. As for Mesmeric Orb I like it but I see it can hurt me but with running less permenents it help and path/swords are nice but Idk how much white I want to run atm , I just have it cut I couldn't get the dimir commander :)

gyratingllama Yeah, I originally had Mind Sculpt and Thought Scour. I replaced mind sculpt with Breaking / Entering. Mana Leak makes a lot of sense, especially with Chronic Flooding.

+1 for Pauper EDH and Stormheart shenanigans.

If you are looking for Artful Dodge, I'd also suggest Distortion Strike. I find the +1/+0 more relevant than choosing when you want Spellheart Chimera to be unblockable. Brute Force is also a sweet card for this deck.

And one other idea: What if you milled instants and sorceries? They go into your graveyard and give Spellheart Chimera a boost. I would suggest trying stuff like Taigam's Scheming, Armored Skaab, Chronic Flooding, Dream Twist, Drowner Initiate, Mental Note, Murmurs from Beyond, Ray of Erasure, Strategic Planning, Thought Scour, Tome Scour, and Vision Charm. Note: I just searched up blue/red commons that can mill you. It might not be smart to add too many, but it could still be pretty powerful if you mill a bunch of instants/sorceries.
