Enchant creature Enchanted creature gets -X/-X, where X is the number of creature cards in its controller's graveyard.
One last suggestion. Death's Approach will be extremely beneficial to you and you should consider it for your main board. You will obviously be stockpiling the opponent's graveyard. One CMC that will take out indestructible creatures (Erebos, Nylea, etc etc etc). It's almost a no-brainer. I have mine on my sideboard but it will see mainboard action.
Depending on your budget Glimpse the Unthinkable is awesome and if that's too expensive the Breaking half of Breaking / Entering is a good replacement. Also, Mind Funeral is a big hitter in any mill deck. I agree that Jace, Memory Adept definitely has a place in this deck. Also, depending on if you plan on winning by milling I think you could find a better replacement for Duskmantle Guildmage but if you're going for damage via mill then he works perfectly. Finally, a ton of removal never hurt anybody (except your opponent). Death's Approach is an awesome removal spell in mill decks, Grisly Spectacle is good for removing their bigger threats, and if you plan on milling them to death Devour Flesh is awesome because them gaining life isn't an upside. One last thing, +1 for mill deck.
People seem to disagree with me but for mill/removal I LOVE Death's Approach its a 1 cost it kills gods the only downside is its bad against early agro I would find a way to run 4 copies before putting any other removal in your deck especially with all the cheap mill you have. If the metagame in your area is plains walker heavy you could run 2 Death's Approach 2 Hero's Downfall You may also want to consider a Bident of Thassa for draw since you are creature heavy for a mill deck
Devour Flesh Doom Blade Ultimate Price i like Death's Approach for a mill deck. If your having problems with the bloodbaron Agoraphobia or Claustrophobia I like the first of those as you can bounce it back to your hand when you need to put it on bigger threat. If your playing against a black deck swap out the blades for Dark Betrayal cant go wrong with Far / Away
Like the deck, it is certainly a very good first deck, but I want to point out Death's Approach kills creatures! not boost it up. So maybe you could cut it for something else, but it can kill gods so you could keep it in as more removal. And probably want to cut the Devour Flesh as giving you opponent life is not lays the best thing to do. But overall I really like the deck.
Im considering putting Death's Approach back in the mainboard... I forgot that is my only god removal... Thoughts?
...and replace them with:
This way, you have stronger answers to threats, food for Deathrite Shaman , and more consistency. I also think you should add two to four Divination and one to three Opportunity for the extra draw power.
