antacidbrn on Grindclock Prison Deck Suggestions?

I am not sure that Grindclock is going to be protected long enough against aggro build that just keep coming. Even if this deck catches someone by surprise, I see a lot of Thoughtseize and Inquisition of Kozilek decks that would just pluck this put of your hand and leave you with no win con.

I only used the clock in an EDH Mill deck and with Duskmantle Guildmage combo, but could see it being a tough sell in the Whisk and Oust build.

Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank

Either deal 1 damage or make them put a card in their graveyard. Infinite rekt

Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind + Curiosity

Tap him to draw a card. Niv-Mizzet deals 1 damage to your opponent. Curiosity sees that he dealt damage, so you get to draw a card. Oops.

Exquisite Blood + Sanguine Bond

Duh, everybody knows this combo. BUT... you can ALSO use Cliffhaven Vampire OR Defiant Bloodlord (Both replace Sanguine Bond)

Kiora's Follower + Kiora's Follower

If you have some sort of trigger that happens whenever you untap a permanent, tap a permanent, or activate an ability you can go infinite. I don't know any off the top of my head, however. Might look into this later.

Oh yeah, I totally forgot. The card Mindcrank Causes players to mill when they take damage. Duskmantle Guildmage can use both effects to cause a player to take damage whenever a card goes to the graveyard. Just a cute little combo that has your opponents confused and disoriented. Manic Scribe Is good if you can easily get delirium online, which should be easy with Jace's Archivist or Forgotten Creation. If you want a little variance, Laboratory Maniac + Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur can be an unusal win con.

I dont think The Scarab God will ever be top tier competitive. Hes actually better without all the zombies. Gisa and Geralf might be better for zombie tribal. I never play 1v1, but lets see what I can think up for you.

Bloodchief Ascension + Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank

Pretty sure this goes infinite.

The deck isnt the fastest,so...I would consider cards like Propaganda & No Mercy to slow down aggro.

Reviving a Void Winnower or Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur can be a real pain for an opponent.

Gravecrawler + Phyrexian Altar + Diregraf Colossus

All the mana and zombies you could ever need.

Add a Diregraf Captain or Plague Belcher to the combo and inflict all the damage you will need.

Add an Altar of the Brood to the combo and mill them for the win.

Traumatize + Fraying Sanity

Mill an opponent.

Theres some cards I couldnt find foil version for like Corpse Dance that you may want to think about.Let me know what you think.

Duskmantle Guildmage, you already have Mindcrank and this makes a solid combo to give mill a little more power.

Undead Alchemist, Dreamborn Muse, and Mesmeric Orb are great for this too. Any time you mill someone and they hit a creature card you get a 2/2 zombie with Alchemist.

Increasing Confusion can be a nice choice sometimes with the flashback

You could also try putting in a reanimator package and have some nice targets to access if you mill yourself.

I feel like Mindcrank, Teferi's Puzzle Box, Wound Reflection, and Spiteful Visions would work well in the deck. Maybe also a Duskmantle Guildmage

First man cut some lands, you dont need 29, 23 or 22 is probably good for you avg cmc

Duskmantle Guildmage / since your running Mindcrank, it makes an infintie combo, your other artifacts are pretty slow, maybe do this 3 of each, Mindcrank and id add Shriekhorn

Hedron Crab should run 4 of these guys.

Mind Funeral very good vs decks with low land counts.

Sphinx's Tutelage can mill alot vs mono colored decks or if you cast a large Fascination

Winds of Rebuke also a recent card that is ok in mill decks

Mind Sculpt pretty budget and easy to cast

there are many good budget mill decks on this site, i have been playing mill in modern for over 2 years. It really depends on how competitive you want to be. if this is trying to win a FNM or just a kitchen table match i could recommend many cards depending on what style you want to play.

dkeller4113 i'm running 6 creatures, not 10. and Ghostly Flicker isn't there for protecting my creatures, it's there for triggering Hedron Crab's effect. I run fatal push in the SB, just haven't gotten around to putting it together on here yet (might actually go ahead and do that now while i'm thinking about it). as far as mindcrank goes, it's purely there as an alt wincon on t4 with Duskmantle Guildmage. also, the Mindcrank effect only applies to opponents. i've ran Mesmeric Orb previously and it really wasn't worth the deck space as most of the matches i've played were over by turn 5-6 and it hurts me just as much as the opponent.
