robrone9 on Mill: How to Make your Friends Hate You

OK! Looking pretty good man!

I love Phenax as a plan B. I think you have a great start here.

For a budget deck, you most likely can't race so just gum up the ground, and let them Mill themselves by taking turns as much as possible.

Try to get a Mesmeric Orb. I realize it is 10 bucks each but it really is amazing. It is the most consistent Mill spell, works against everything, and it will turn on delerium fast. This in turn makes Manic Scribe a very good card, so play 4. Murmuring Phantasm is a cheap wall that works well with Phenax as well. Steel Wall (or any artifact creature) will also help your delerium -- but Steel Wall is great as it comes down turn 1 and has good defense, which works well with Phenax. Architects of Will could also be used as 1cmc draw a card to get 2 types into the graveyard for delirium as well, but you might not need it. If you can't get delerium often enough, give the Architects a try.

I realize fetch lands are expensive, but they are really good cards to start with it you decide to get more invested in the format, and they help turn on delirium too. Even a few Evolving Wilds can make a difference in the meantime.

Again, I can't stress enough how good Manic Scribe with delerium is. Build your deck to get delirium.

After that, try to cut down on counters and rely on big defensive creature and Crypt Incursion to keep you in the game until you win.

Traumatize is worse than Mind Funeral. By the time you can cast it the average deck won't be that large anymore. Get 4x Mind Funeral and don't look back. Don't play Mind Grind it is just too expensive in mana cost. Don't play those.

Finally, even if you can't afford anything else, try playing the Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank combo. It is an infinite Mill combo that will win the game in the spot most of the time.

Great deck. For my mill I also like to run Glimpse the Unthinkable, Jace's Phantasm, Psychic Strike, Mind Funeral --personally I like this better than Mind Grind-- and for an infinite mill combo I use Duskmantle Guildmage with Mindcrank.

okay.. hi there, big fan of mill. looks like a weird.... damage/mill deck? well the way i see it, you can go easy mode (damage) or hard mode (mill)... but right now youre a little weak at both, because youre splitting focus. i mean if youre going for damage, then why not Consuming Aberration + Dragon Throne of Tarkir + Invisible Stalker ?

if youre going to keep it split, then yeah.. Dragon Throne of Tarkir, Rogue's Passage, Sword of Body and Mind, Whispering Madness, and 4 Mindcrank for sure. but ultimately i just see that being a damage deck..

if youre going Sphinx's Tutelage route, you need more draw. Howling Mine, Font of Mythos, Notion Thief.

you can also combo Duskmantle Guildmage with Mindcrank for an instant win

please check out my decks Arkham and Learning Curve. id appreciate tips

have you heard of our lord and savior Mindcrank? creates an infinite mill/kill combo with Duskmantle Guildmage. and suits your "damage mill" thing. also... i sense great things from Dimir Infiltrator.. that transmute would work on... a lot of things. plus hes unblockable!

Fate Unraveler... what? same with Liliana's Caress.... and Jace's Erasure.. they are just dead weight... and i hear you arguing "Liliana's Caress + Whispering Madness is sick!".. and youre 100% correct. but if your gonna do this, then go full tilt. Jace's Archivist, Notion Thief, Geth's Grimoire, Waste Not. if damage/ discard is your game? make it THE game.

if you want draw/ mill to be the game, using Jace's Erasure? go ALL in. Howling Mine, Sphinx's Tutelage, Font of Mythos, Teferi's Puzzle Box.

you need to pick one. youre crippling your potential by splitting your focus here. trust me.

check out my decks The Pissed Off Librarian and Learning Curve. and PLEASE leave me some suggestions of your own

OH. Okay I get it now. Bloodchief Ascension would be sideboarded for the reason above. I only have Mindcrank and Duskmantle Guildmage are in the deck is because they are very good on their own, and don't make everyone hate me to death.

I may be wrong but I believe that the text on Dimir Infiltrator states that transmute allows you to search for any card with the same CMC as the infiltrator, allowing you to use him to search for either Mindcrank or Duskmantle Guildmage. The ability is what allows you to do this, but it doesn't determine the price of the card you can search if I understand it correctly.

A +1 from me. I would also recommend Bloodchief Ascension as well for the Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank combo. I have a similar deck if you want to check it out.

I Hope You Didn't Need That (suggestions wanted)

Thanks for the complement Avro. I wouldn't really call then "hidden" combos, but Duskmantle Guildmage or Bloodchief Ascension + Mindcrank are pretty much gg.

With Phenax in play, Intruder Alarm + Undead Alchemist is also pretty much gg.

One time, I had my Clever Impersonator copy my Intruder Alarm, so every time a creature came into play, I could tap everything in response to mill a ton (from Phenax), then untap from the first Intruder Alarm trigger, tap again to mill more, untap from the second Intruder Alarm trigger, then tap once more on my final opponent's end step to mill once more. It was gross.
