Desert of the Mindful Discussion

mhaywood03 on REAL budget standard mill

Ok in this kind of deck you need options to slow your opponent and more mill options, I recommend putting in at least 2 Abandoned Sarcophagus to recast your cycling mill spells, with that I would replace Cancel with Countervailing Winds as you would have a fair amount of cards in your graveyard and you can recast it from the sarcophagus. I would put 4 Ipnu Rivulet and 4 Desert of the Mindful to avoid flooding and add extra mill from the rivulet. To add stall to the deck Id add 4 Winds of Rebuke and if you have the money a pair of River's Rebuke if you dont then run the budget alternative Floodwaters which also has cycling. Also consider some Essence Scatters and Censors as some better counter magic.

Nice job making this super budget! I would suggest two cards: Curator of Mysteries, 4/4 flying for 4 mana is just good, and you can cycle it away as well. I realize that the other ability is useless, but I still think it might be better than Glyph Keeper. Desert of the Mindful because cycling is good.

You can use Desert of the Mindful instead of Lonely Sandbar

My pleasure. I like your changes. A few more thoughts:

1) With 14 creatures, I'd get rid of Shapers' Sanctuary. If you're looking for a 1 drop, I'd go with Siren Stormtamer. It also gives you the ability to protect your fish. Alternatively, I'd recommend Blossoming Defense to protect against removal.

2) Also, I would drop Desert of the Mindful and Desert of the Indomitable in favor of the corresponding basic lands. You already have 8 desserts without them, and they slow do your turn since they come into play tapped.

3) I would consider dropping Haze of Pollen for Blossoming Defense or Dive Down (Hexproof) or Siren's Ruse (Flicker and can be used to untap Champion of Rhonas).

4) I don't think Storm Fleet Aerialist fits well here. Channeler Initiate is your preferred 2 drop, and based on your creature based, you probably won't attack until Champion of Rhonas lands on the field; so raid won't trigger for Storm Fleet Aerialist. I would recommend Vizier of Tumbling Sands (untap Champion of Rhonas after exert); Watertrap Weaver (control/utility); or Siren Lookout (explore trigger to get through your deck).

It looks like you've found all the playable mill cards in standard right now. Unfortunately, black doesn't have much to offer, so it might not be worth including. It provides some removal options, but since you only really need to slow down your opponent, blue will probably be good enough on its own.

I'm not sure how good counterspells will end up being. Things like Engulf the Shore will probably work better just because counterspells require you to leave mana unused "just in case" but you're going to want to play your mill cards.

If you want the deck legal in standard, Battle for Zendikar and Shadows Over Innistrad will be rotating out once Ixalan comes out. On the bright side, Ixalan features Fleet Swallower and Navigator's Ruin.

Some cards suggestions: Desert of the Mindful, Decision Paralysis, Galestrike, Imaginary Threats, Select for Inspection

Your anther hubs don't seem to be doing anything the only reason you should run anther hub is so you can have more consistency with your mana base but in a mono colored deck with only 1 card that can use energy it won't be doing much that an island could already do and I also recommend running more deserts from ahmonkhet and hour of devastation like Desert of the Mindful as it is better than nothing

Not a huge fan of Standard, and blue is my least favorite color, but this looks extremely fun!

Would you consider putting in some of Desert of the Mindful? Since you have low costs, having a Cycle land or two may prove beneficial if you don't have draw spells ready.
