Chronic Flooding Discussion

Alkadron on Exponential Growth

Vraska - Vorel can't double the counters on Planeswalkers. I still like Kiora in this deck, but the only way to user her -8 ability right after you cast her is Doubling Season.

Winterblast - All of your suggestions are terrible and you should feel bad. (Except Crystalline Crawler, that's fine.) Why do you hate fun?

Arikarin - Mostly I agree with Vraska; you need a lot more mana. Try to run at least 38 lands, and get some more mana rocks. The very best Mana Rocks for you are Everflowing Chalice and Astral Cornucopia, 'cause they can get really out of hand really fast with Vorel. I also run a Pentad Prism - it just a Crystalline Crawler without a body, it's pretty nice.

Also look into more utility Graft Cards. Vigean Graftmage is really silly with Vorel. Sage of Fables and Zameck Guildmage each do serious work for you.

Mostly I think you need to take out a bunch of cards that are... sort of just terrible?

Good luck!

Seems a lot better than Chronic Flooding, thanks for all the advice btw.

TheSurgeon on Dimir mill, like where's my library?

Concerning Bitterblossom, I see the synergy, but you're using turns 2 and 3 to get them both out, when you should be milling. Are you playing with creatures, or.milling your opponent. Mill is much like burn, in the sense that you should attack your opponent directly and with blinding speed.

If the usual suspects bore you, try a more static mill approach:
Mesmeric Orb + Mana Leaks and/or Chronic Floodings coupled with Manic Scribes, can cost your opponent many cards in one turn.

There's always Curse of the Bloody Tome, and the draw/mill cards Jace's Erasure and Sphinx's Tutelage to synergize with Visions of Beyond, as well.

If your looking for a guarantee to buy time in a game, I would suggest Darkness,for those terrible aggro and weenie deck matchups.

Sorry if I'm muddling up your thought process by suggesting some radical changes. Check out my page for some.. Unorthodox.. Mill mechanics and strategies.

Good luck, friend!

This looks like a pretty good start, but there's quite a few issues here. Your combo is cool, but if you want to use a combo like that, you need to have a lot more ways to fetch combo-pieces. Otherwise, the mill-side of the deck ends up really hurting, as Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank are both very bad on their own. Also you are running many cards that are simply way too slow or expensive for modern. You are also running tons of 2-ofs, not really sure what the reasoning is there. From my understanding, and by looking at your mana-base, you are on a budget, so I'll try to give you mostly cheaper suggestions.


First: Ditch the combo entirely:-2x Mindcrank-2x Duskmantle Guildmage-2x Dimir Infiltrator

Second: Take out Phenax and the Abberation. Fun, and great together in EDH, but way too slow for a fast-paced format like modern.-2x Phenax, God of Deception-2x consuming abberation

Third, get rid of all the stuff that's too slow or doesn't really help to mill, or just isn't that good:-2x Perplex-2x Psychic Spiral-2x Chronic Flooding

This leaves you 16 slots total to work with. I'd definitely suggest a few things:

  1. Add 2x Visions of Beyond. This card is basically ancestral recall as long as you're milling. Should be a 4-of in any competitive modern mill deck.

  2. Add 2x Archive Trap. Instant speed, and zero-cost potential. The only times you'll want to side this out is the rare Merfolk or Soul Sisters matchup where they don't have any fetches, but almost all modern decks run a minimum of 7-8 fetches, sometimes in addition to various other library searching effects.

  3. Add 4x Tome Scour or Shriekhorn. Neither of these cards are very good, but basically every deck needs some turn one plays if it wants to be competitive.

  4. Mesmeric Orb and Glimpse the Unthinkable are both expensive, and may be out of your budget range, but they are also some of the best milling spells available. I would highly suggest picking up 4-ofs of each, provided you can afford it.

  5. I'd also suggest running some Darknesss, Damnations, or any other effects that can help you stall out the game to finish milling your opponents. Also consider creatures like Jace's Phantasm or Manic Scribe

Finally, I'd encourage some edits to your manabase. I assume this deck is budget, but some shocks and fetches would go a long way and make hedron crab way better. If that's too expensive, at least try and pick up a couple Underground Rivers which I believe are about $3 a piece.

Anyways, good luck building and milling. :)

IMHO, as long, as you mill your opponent one card with a card else than Mesmeric Orb or Dreamborn Muse, you always got more cards than him.

You have enough of them like 4x Hedron Crab, 2x Manic Scribe, 4x Mind Sculpt, 4x Chronic Flooding, 4x Thought Scour, 4x Archive Trap. That's 22 cards, say you only pull two of them, milling maybe 15 cards. You will never loose 15 cards more than your opponent with Mesmeric Orb or draw as much. At least that's something that never happened to me. And it doesn't matter, if you win with 10 cards or 40.

But of course, that's your decision.

I would also pick Tome Scour or Serum Visions over Thought Scour, drawing a card but milling two less isn't worth it, if you ask me - in my mill deck, I rarely run out of cards and just have to play topdeck.

But I have to say, that Thought Scour is a reason for not playing Dreamborn Muse.

Which website is that?

I wouldn't play Chronic Flooding, imho Tome Scour or Breaking (if you played black) both do more. Imagine the opponent taking it as a cmc 3 landdestruct. Would you play such a thing?

You could splash a color with the evolving wilds you already have and maybe an Dimir Aqueduct (or other). Decent cards: Mind Funeral, Glimpse the Unthinkable

I'm not so sure about Shelldock Isle. You hope to see a Archive Trap for cc 5, saving you 4 plus that land comes tapped and it isn't even sure, that you meet it's condition.

In my opinion, a combination of Tome Scour or Serum Visions and the like do way more than Thought Scour.

Maybe Startled Awake  Flip?

I'm probably also going to add a Ghost Quarter too, great for both Hedron Crab and Archive Trap.

If you want, you can take a look at my mill deck at [click me hard], I would apreciate that :)

I love this deck, it plays really well and is pretty cheap to boot!One of the biggest problems with Mill is that there is no real way around Leyline of Sanctity. that said, Mesmeric Orb and Chronic Flooding can get there. I'd consider adding Manic Scribe as another way to get around that.


also not super sure about spiral, it just costs too much. that said phantasm is really good.
