Seal of Doom, Seal of Primordium, Executioner's Capsule?

probably don't want spark elemental, and cabal therapy can swap out for the Cabal Therapist.

Cauldron Familiar would be good with all the food, as would Trail of Crumbs

other random suggestions: Sorcerer's Broom, Springbloom Druid, Goblin Kaboomist, Izoni, Thousand-Eyed, Mortician Beetle, and Blood Aspirant

Hey robcastpwnz, thanks for the thoughts! I have to admit, I have made a few changes to the deck and haven't updated this page, so I'll get on that soon (Cut Memory Erosion and a couple others I believe).

Syr Konrad, the Grim does seem like a good fit in most Mill decks, I'll make some room for him.

I decided on on Seal of Doom over Executioner's Capsule for two reasons, main one being that it is an enchantment rather than an artifact (for diversity of permanents playable with Muldrotha each turn), and the other reason being that it has no activation cost (even though it's more expensive from the yard, I often find myself tapping out during my turn).

Plaguecrafter has crazy good value with Muldrotha, but didn't get me toward Mill any faster.

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.

-Emry, Lurker of the Loch

-Baleful Strix


-Aether Spellbomb

-Executioner's Capsule

-Courier's Capsule

-Bolas's Citadel

-Civic Saber

You can bounce the any spellbomb or capsules with Hanna and Emry, there are a few more also I didn't list.

Strix and Civic saber is just a good card here.

Bola's Citadel can ramp you into wins quite often if you are correcting with Alela's lifegain, you can keep her out longer with Swiftfoot Boots / Whispersilk Cloak / Lightning Greaves

Have you considered Aether Spellbomb instead of Codex Shredder? With Emry that's a consitant draw / control mechanism. I feel like its constant triggering with Grinding Station would make up for the mill. I'm having a lot of fun with that and Executioner's Capsule in my Emry deck.

No Capsule or Spellbombs? They'e hella cheap and trigger well with Hanna/Alela

I like Aether Spellbomb / Executioner's Capsule / Courier's Capsule

Executioner's Capsule is rather good with glissa. Gilt-Leaf Winnower is a kill spell on an elf that can double trigger with yarok out. eye blight's ending is elf tribal, but Hero's Downfall is more flexible.

Huge fan of Akiri/Bruse+Silas, Silas recuring artifacts every turn is really sweet, use doublestrike enablers or extra combat enablers to do some sweet things.

You often end up trying to loop artifacts for Time Sieve or Mindslaver loops to attempt infinite turns. Pretty cool. You can also use cards like Nihil Spellbomb, Nevinyrral's Disk, Oblivion Stone, Executioner's Capsule, Aether Spellbomb, etc.
