Lanzo493 on God's Plan... To Mill

Paradox Engine, Eater of the Dead (you need Brainspoil to tutor him for sure), Phyrexian Devourer (his ability will only go on the stack once so once his power hits 7 go crazy and make him big for one last gigantic mill), and Intruder Alarm can all close out games. Mesmeric Orb is pricy but can easily know I out a quarter of everyone’s deck when played turn 2. Thousand-Year Elixir May also be worth a shot.

Undead Alchemist with Altar of the Brood is almost infinite.

But I love not expensive things. Take a look at Pemmin's Aura, Freed from the Real, Sword of the Paruns, Bonehoard, Mortivore, and Slagwurm Armor. Stitcher Geralf is also fun.

You also may consider milling yourself every once in a while to use Ever After, Necropolis, Stitch Together, and Treasure Cruise.

If you thought even some of my ideas were worthwhile then you may want to consider looking st my deck for more card suggestions. !!!DANGER: YOU ARE ENTERING A MILLZONE!!!

Oh wow! Can you tell me more about this infinite loop? In my deck there are already some.

the ones that I know are these, though I don't use all of them:

Eater of the Dead is basically a win-con for a deck like this. Here is my Phenax, God of Deception mill deck, if you're interested.

Big fan of Phenax mill decks, and every time I see one I have to recommend Eater of the Dead as a card to add. It untaps itself by exiling a creature from any graveyard, making it a Phenax staple! Hope that helps, and happy milling!

Fraying Sanity only targets one player and isn't quite good enough for multiplayer in my opinion. Eater of the Dead is too close to combo land, i excluded Undead Alchemist for the same reason due to it's interaction with Altar of the Brood even though it's awesome.

I tried myself at a Phenax EDH previously and I found the best creature to pair with him to be Eater of the Dead. You should definitely think about including that one.

A few suggestions:

Given that you're a mill deck, "on top of library" effects get extra valuable. There's a lot of them, but Commit deserves special mention for its power and low price.

If you're looking for more combos, you can toss Eater of the Dead in--that plus Phenax is often enough to kill the table. Be prepared to be a target forevermore after your first win, though!

Finally, your deck appears to straight-up lose to Kozilek, Butcher of Truth and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre. Nihil Spellbomb, Ravenous Trap, Undead Alchemist, and Eater of the Dead (again!) are all affordable solutions to that problem.

I just dont see this as a super threatening deck. Grusilda's ability isn't being taken advantage of here. Platinum Angel + Phage the Untouchable, Combat Celebrant + Darksteel Sentinel, Avatar of Woe + Eater of the Dead, or even just as basic as Mage-Ring Responder + Hateflayer. Grusilda is a commander that thrives off of loopholes and creativity.
