Enchant creature Enchanted creature gets -X/-X, where X is the number of creature cards in its controller's graveyard.
Any standard mill deck needs a Consuming Aberration in my opinion. As for thing to take out you can do without the Millstone and probably the Disperse . I'd also replace the Asphyxiate with Hero's Downfall if you can afford it but if not I'd run Grisly Spectacle and/or Death's Approach . If you really commit the the mill strategy Devour Flesh becomes a great card since you won't be killing them with damage anyway. The Fate Unraveler really does not fit the deck and I don't think it should be in here either. I also really don't think you need the Elixir of Immortality . Clone and Shipwreck Singer are both cool cards but I definitely think you should focus more on the mill strategy and they don't really help with that.
As for the maybe board, Breaking / Entering is excellent. I personally never really got a lot of benefit from Duskmantle Guildmage . Far / Away is great removal. Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker is a bomb. I don't think you need Omenspeaker or Wall of Frost .
All in all looks like it has great potential and I love mill decks so +1 from me.
And here's a list of Auras I'm interested in.
Effect upon death
Effect upon various triggers
(Only considering for Servant of Tymaret )
Now, obviously it would have to be either upon death, or upon tapping/damage/whatever, not both.
First you need to fix your mana curve and get more copies of some cards. If you are going to still trying to play mill stile or something like that Death's Approach it's a ok removal. Totally Lost , Grisly Spectacle , Undercity Plague cost too much for the use they have. Bane Alley Broker it's cool, it makes you cicling fast and use the cards you want. Win for milling in standar it's not possible (in competitive) so, use more creatures like Wight of Precinct Six (4 copies might be work very well)
Hey there I have a mill deck as well check it out Controlled Destruction I think you could get some idea's from it. I play tested this deck vs a R/W deck of mine and mine went 2-0.
Next I would pull out Coerced Confession I mean it is nice to draw cards's but this deck isn't about draw power. I would put in some Pilfered Plans (I know I said draw power is not what you are after but 3 mana for drawing 2 and the enemy discarding two is awesome).
Now we have Nightveil Specter it is a great card but it is a card that goes the opposite direction of mill. If this was my deck I would take it out and add in some Siren of the Silent Song this card's ability is more tuned for mill then the one you have.
As always this is just my perspective and my suggestions. But I think some of these changes could help this deck be a little more in tune with what you are trying to do. +1 from me!
This deck isn't bad but it can be improved. Definitely would replace the Jace, Architect of Thought with more Jace, Memory Adept . Also, Consuming Aberration is a must in any mill deck. Not only is he a potential win-con but he completely changes the game and gives all your other spells extra value. I'd also replace Dissolve with Psychic Strike . Removal wise consider running Death's Approach it's only one mana and it deals with indestructible creatures. Dimir Charm is another card to consider (acts as removal, controls their draws, and can counter sorcery spells). Finally, Traumatize is pretty much a must in a mill deck. Also, +1 for mill.
Can't afford to max out on the expensive lands, as much as I'd love to. As it is, many of the more expensive cards were given to me or were opened in booster packs. The only ones I bought outright are the $8 Jace, and a single one of the $7 Phenax cards. Everything above that is beyond my price range.
Still, Pithing Needle and Thassa's Rebuff are great cards to consider. I've been looking at getting a few Pithing Needle s for a while, but haven't done it yet. Thassa's Rebuff is a card I'm sure I've seen in the BNG image gallery, but I may have just forgotten about it. I also already own one Death's Approach , so it's possible that I might put it in, but most of the people where I go for FNM have very few creatures in their decks.
I sideboarded the Nighthowler and Wight cards for use against those creature-filled decks, but since they only work with creatures in the graveyard, and I have almost no mill-sorceries, they suffer from the same problem as Death's Approach . So I suppose I can take them out.
