Eater of the Dead should be your best friend. mill yourself a little, and he just goes off.

Doesn't the combination of Eater of the Dead and Phenax, God of Deception essentially drain each apponent's deck completely? I test played this deck and basically felt like the game was over after 5 turns.

Mill is a fun strategy that I like to use. Syr Konrad, the Grim is a card that was recently printed in Throne of Eldrain. you might be able to slot him in. He works well with mill, sacrifice and graveyard strategies. He can also combo off with Mindcrank and another mill spell like Phenax. It's not infinite but it can seriously chunk some players out. Eater of the Dead is another card that combos with Phenax and Syr Konrad. He's pretty useless if you don't have Phenax in play though. I like to run Executioner's Capsule and Plaguecrafter to create a soft lock that can be played every turn with Muldrotha out. These 2 cards can really hinder your opponents. Your deck already looks pretty solid though so I wouldn't blame you for not adding these cards.

Kaneka, I actually had never seen Eater of the Dead , I like it and will mull over adding it.

I rarely pop Ipnu Rivulet , but it is an enabler of the Duskmantle Combo.

I suppose Surgical Extraction and Extirpate should also be added for similar effect to Extract .

Hello antacidbrn, is there a reason not to include Eater of the Dead in a Phenax, God of Deception deck ?

How often do you use Ipnu Rivulet ?

I also like to Extract those pesky Eldrazi titans or Blightsteel Colossus from my opponents' decks, what do you think of the card ?

Thanks for your time if you answer all this ^__^

The deck is alot of fun so far. I've had success in smaller games of EDH like 1v1 or 3 person matches. When I go against three others there seem to be more answers. That being said I feel like I can spring back from board wipes okay and this deck does really really well late game once graveyards are populated by my effects.

In terms of my advice when playing this deck or any mill deck is to have alternative ways to win. Like Tree of Perdition or Hinder + Tunnel Vision / Spell Crumple . Eater of the Dead can also instant win some games if there is enough graveyard fodder,.

There's Fraying Sanity . Overall Cry of the Carnarium and Ritual of Soot is super weak in commander. Hard board wipes like Cyclonic Rift Plague Wind Damnation are much better. Phenax, God of Deception is a great mill machine with either Eater of the Dead and consuming aberation. Diluvian Primordial is a great card along with Rhystic Study (which should be in every blue deck). There is Reality Shift which can exile commanders unlike Cast Down . Gilded Lotus for extra ramp. Tomebound Lich isn't that great in commander it's just got a really small body. Just a spew list of cards I think would be good for the deck: Mutilate Defile Clever Impersonator Evil Twin Wayfarer's Bauble Burnished Hart Lim-Dul's Vault (only if you include a combo) Lilliana of the Dark Realms + Torment of Hailfire I know that this is a very long list just trying to guide you toward what commander looks like!
