Dream Twist Discussion
1 week ago
currently this deck dies to Pithing Needle...Ratchet Bomb is my reflex answer for touching artifacts/enchantments in these colors...Annul and Hurkyl's Recall are also options. Maybe a combination of Jace's Phantasm and Wight of Precinct Six could be used for a beatdown wincon?... perhaps Thought Scour/Dream Twist used on yourself could be a sneaky means to "draw."

I personally have had to dump black from my mill deck, i found that it really slowed down the deck and in modern games you need speed, you don't have much time to wait for mana. it really killed me back in the day when i cut black out, but it really improved the deck and made it much faster.
also if you can get some Hedron Crab those are really good too, they are not too expensive so they could still be a part of a Budget deck.
if you do stay black another card that might be good for a sideboard or even main board is Dash Hopes (black counter), or even Darkness (black fog) though that last one is getting up there in price so it might be a bit outside of the budget theme

Thought Scour and Forbidden Alchemy may be ok replacements for Dream Twist/visions of beyond but the problem is that thought scour doesn't generate draw for the stichwings to discard and alchemy is better for selecting draw but is worse on flashback

22 land feels like too much for this deck. You could get away with running 19-20 since your curve is so low, and add in 3x Dream Twist. Which you can use with flashback to begin the Duskcrank combo, or double-down when you find a Fraying Sanity.
If you like the Duskcrank combo, check out my competitive version [Primer]- Altar of the Heartless Duskcrank.
This has great budget potential. +1

Yeah I agree with Phil a decent bit.
The bident of Thassa and Thassa themselves don't seem to help well enough to make them worth including. Muddle the Mixture could be a good counterspell card honestly. If not that then maybe add counterspell straightup. Mindsculpt is meh as well. Dream Twist could work too. Jace's Erasure could be good since you can draw some. Sanity Grinding Could be good.Judge's Familiar or Drowner Initiate are better than the fairy I think. The fairy doesn't add much really honestly.

kameenook Thanks for telling me about Extract from Darkness, that is definently important. As for Hedron Crab, Mind Funeral, and Drowned Catacomb, I was going to put them in but I decided that they were just too expensive. Breaking / Entering Im not a huge fan of in this deck specifically, because theres only 5 Swamps in the deck, so theres a good chance I wont be able to play that in the early game like I want. Thought Scour I tried to put into the deck, but I couldnt find any cards to replace for them, and Dream Twist I feel just doesnt mill enough. And lastly with the dual lands, other than the lands like Drowned Catacomb (which was too extra expensive) I just dont like them and I feel they are a waste of a land drop for a turn.

It says in the title that this is a modern deck, and Extract from Darkness is not modern legal firstly. Secondly one of the advantages of a deck like this is to blank removal, although it makes the deck in general worse vs. Leyline of Sanctity but generally I would recommend running as many mill spells as possible while skimping on the creature base.
Cards I would recommend for this strategy (budget wise)Tome ScourHedron Crab is sick, but almost three dollars a popMind Funeral, again almost three dollars but card is a house, costs three mana for what Mind Grind would do for six mana. Breaking / Entering budget version of Glimpse the Unthinkable but still a very good rate as it does two mana for 8 instead of 2 for 7 with Mind Sculpt (I do recommend running both though)Thought Scour, its cheap, cantrips, mills just a little bit but goes very well with Sphinx's TutelageDream Twist is nice its one for three and allows you to flashback as well
For lands you can get some budget duals in the form of Dimir Guildgate, Jwar Isle Refuge, or Dismal Backwater. Also I'm not sure on the price but Drowned Catacomb was just reprinted in Ixalan so I might imagine it's not too pricey right now.
