I would consider a few of the stronger mill payloads, such as Mind Grind , Fraying Sanity , and Sphinx's Tutelage . A fun combo is Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank for infinite mill and damage. You are also fairly low on removal, and a slow mill deck wants a lot of that. There are the more expensive options like Damnation or Cyclonic Rift , but you seem like you want to stick to a low budget so I would recommend AEtherize or Languish . Phenax, God of Deception is very popular as a mill commander, but is still good in the 99 if you want to stick with Mirko. Counterspells are also very powerful in a deck like this, since you don't care about you're opponents board state much, and Counterspell , Commit / Memory , Foil , Spell Swindle , and Memory Lapse are very good for that role and are pretty cheap to pick up. Grindstone is pretty expensive, but can kill a mono-color deck very quickly if your play group has a lot of that.

I would probably trade Twincast for Mission Briefing for the same price. I like Twincast however, because it can counter other counterspells.

I almost never have to make my opponent search, so Field of Ruin I may just a single copy of.

Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank are my preferred pairing.

Thanks for the cards!

Mission Brief Trap - I've taken my mill obsession probably a bit too far, but you'll find alot of interaction and tricks there

Since you are running Mindcrank you may also want Duskmantle Guildmage . Any damage while guildmage is active goes infinite for that opponent.

Ty all for the tips! I also agree with wallisface, I'm planning on remove some creatures and add 4 Mindcrank and 2 more Duskmantle Guildmage , as I realy liked the combo (ty Mcspacky). But, I'm afraid of get rid of my creatures because I tried a full mill deck and got a bad time with it, as people used creatures against me and I became defenseless. So, can you recomend me some good hand distuption and killspells pls? For a creature-win deck.

Always love a good U/B mill. If you want another win con, Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank is a fun one. Check out adding Visions of Beyond if you find that you need more card draw. For your mill spells, definitely look into upgrading to Glimpse the Unthinkable , Archive Trap , Breaking , or Mind Funeral .

I agree with wallisface as well. It seems like you're trying to fit both the creature mill and the spell mill into the same deck. In my experience I haven't really found a U/B list that can do both. This is a great start though!

Happy Brewing!

The idea started with gagging the power level of what a Persistent Petitioners should be. My play group largely consists of mostly highly tuned deck with power level around 8, so I want to build a deck that is able to survive and thrive in my group. But clearly a mill strategy is not that strong in EDH, so I went with a group hug mill route and play the politics. Since the difference in power at the beginning is so big, most players won't pay much attention to you. Plus mass card drawn is the most successful feel good strategy for group hug and with enchantments discouraging other player from targeting you and card draw in some way is just another to mill your opponents and with adviser mill to carry the deck in the final stretch of the race everything starting to take shape and form the basis of this deck. After play testing I realize I don’t need that many Persistent Petitioners because the best way to use petitioners is to hold it in your hand until in the last stretch when you see a opening or disrupt a player’s win con that has to do with the library therefore no need to cards like Bloodbond March , Wood Sage , Thrumming Stone etc. Instead I added counterspells for other’s win con disruption and my own jinky combo like Mindcrank Duskmantle Guildmage and Phyrexian Unlife Solemnity to increase my win percentage if I get to the final 1v1. This deck is ablt to get second play fairly consistantly and from time to time that mill strategy does work if game is longe. Overall I'm happy with what I got here and by sharing with the community helping ti get more feedback to improve and learn. Please work together and try to build the perfect Persistent Petitioners deck.

oh I see, you could also try Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank I like that combo but not for my mill. I think this is along those lines
