Duskmantle Guildmage can infinite mill with mindcrank

Diabolic Intent may be another valid card for you to consider. :p Sorry, I truly love Marchesa, she was my first non pre con commander. Duskmantle Guildmage, while excellent, feels lackluster here, you're turning things sideways, not playing an attrition game. Blade of the Bloodchief is another card I personally wouldn't run, though I understand your reasoning behind it. Dack's Duplicate is another thing I'd drop, but I've never been big on clone effects...too unreliable in my meta. Haha. You can see where my biases lie. I don't know your meta like you do, ultimately it's jyst a judgement call, but if you decide you made a mistake, you can always add back in whatever you removed.

Maybe Duskmantle Guildmage for the three mana ability to sometimes do massive damage out of no where.

My The Old Grixis Mill deck has a few things you could use. Like Duskmantle Guildmage can infinite with mind crank. And Fraying Sanity can deck someone with traumatize or Fleet Swallower

I don't think the combo is good enough for the following reasons:

  1. It requires 4 pieces to work. Even with tutoring, the odds of you finding all 4 are quite low.

  2. Some of the pieces are useless/weak outside of the combo. In particular, Cloudstone Curio does almost nothing. Doubling Season/Parallel Lives only synergize with a few cards, and the only good synergy is with Elvish Promenade.

  3. It requires a lot of setup. You need to play 7 or 8 mana worth of cards that don't imeadiately help you. That's a lot of mana, even for an elves deck.

  4. It's easy to disrupt. One removal spell takes out your Heritage Druid, your entire combo falls apart.

  5. It doesn't even win you the game immeadiately. You have to wait until the next turn to attack, and all your elves are tapped, so your opponent can kill you the next turn or wrath your board.

Keep in mind that there are much better combos in modern that don't see any play. Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank requires only two cards and 8 mana (or 3 cards and 5 mana with Gut Shot), and wins you the game right away. Resplendent Mentor and Famished Paladin requires only 2 cards and 7 mana, and while it doesn't win you the game, it does prevent most opponents from winning. Neither of these combos is good enough, and yours is far worse.

Anyway, you're running 70 cards, so you should find 10 to cut. I know 9 that I'd cut.

Hey what's about Duskmantle Guildmage? Infinite win combo with Mindcrank.

For some more suggestions: Dimir mill control

Sorry that it took me so long to get around to it, but there are definitely some mill staples you should take a look at, I dont really play mill that much myself, but I do know a few of them, such as Fraying Sanity, Mindcrank, Duskmantle Guildmage and Thought Scour and if you fancy them Fleet Swallower and Traumatize, Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank = Mill enemy for their entire deck, same thing with Either Fleet Swallower or Fraying Sanity + Traumatize
