Anagkai on Dusting off my U/B mill ...

Hi, I really like milling and thought about building a deck myself. But I dind't do it yet. I have recently seen some mono black cards for that, but I can't recall where. Things like Dead Man's Chest. Also Patient Rebuilding from M19! It not only mills well, it also gives you card advantage.

@Enral Thanks, I like the idea of adding SDT. I'll have to see what to take out for that card.

@Valzasaurus Glad you enjoy it.

About life gain: Don't worry! The cool thing about theft deck is that the answers always lie in your opponents decks ;)

So these are the cards you probably have overlooked: Dead Man's Chest, Gonti, Lord of Luxury, Acquire, Expropriate, Knowledge Exploitation, Mind's Dilation, Praetor's Grasp, Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Sakashima the Impostor, Evil Twin, Stolen Identity, Psychic Intrusion, Memory Plunder, Sakashima's Student, Thada Adel, Acquisitor, Daring Thief & Silent-Blade Oni

Add more thuds its a good win condition if you have a big creature also add more Cast Down and try to add more cards that take things like Dead Man's Chest. Smelt should be in the side board cause its good against artifact decks. Also Costly Plunder is a good draw card for this deck cause of its low cmc. Plus if you want to be fun cause you taking many of your opponents creatures and sacking them, you should add revel in riches as a alternate win condition. Maybe you should also add a Tilonalli's Skinshifter.

I dig it. I just finished my Vaevictis list as well. He's incredibly powerful in Brawl. Here are some cards that I would recommend you find a slot for:

I suggest Chaos Wand would be good to use your opponent's own spells

I've also discovered a combo with Hatred and Dead Man's Chest with any kill spell

Traveler247 Tbh I dont need LED in the deck, but I have one and it synergises well so Im using it. As for cEDH lists, its used a lot in Doomsday lines and a little bit for infinite mana for Bomberman combos but Dramatic Scepter is really where its at with infinite mana these days.

I used to have the dark depths combo in a deck but found it a bit janky, although I can imagine it would fit well in this deck.

In my combo section I mention the use of Flash with Hulk, that combo however I would not say is janky. Thats one of the fastest combos available in the game, but Ive pretty much cut combos from this deck coz I have so many in other decks already.


  • Dead Man's Chest looks like some great value
  • Equilibrium I like this, I love playing control
  • Hostage Taker testing at the moment but havent drawn it yet, should be good though
  • Kederekt Leviathan awesome with reanimate enchantments, I talked about this in my combo section
  • Infernal Darkness I prefer Contamination especially in a creature heavy deck
  • Mind Harness I like Treachery over this as its basically free to cast with no upkeep costs
  • Finally, I want to avoid infinite turns with this deck because I have so many combos in other decks. Also I think Second Chance is more on flavour for infinite turns in this deck, or just playing a normal extra turn card like Time Warp and sacing then recasting E wit each turn / bouncing it with Deadeye would be better coz Time Sieve is a dead draw by itself

Cards I have been experimenting with so far have been Dead Man's Chest, Alpha Authority, Equilibrium, Energy Field, Hostage Taker, Tortured Existence, Infernal Darkness, Kederekt Leviathan, Dystopia, Mind Harness and Dystopia. Granted I love to play control based decks with lots of enchantments so I am a little biased.

you probably need more black permanents for Knight of Grace. Demonic Vigor definitely gets the job done, but unfortunately theres not a lot of other good black permanents in ixalan or dominaria imo. Dead Man's Chest is another option if you have removal spells, although it might be hard to find room for History of Benalia (a staple knights can't do without) + Dead Man's Chest + removal.
