Split second (As long as this spell is on the stack, players can't play spells or activated abilities that aren't mana abilities.)

Choose target card in a graveyard other than a basic land card. Search its owner's graveyard, hand, and library for all cards with the same name as that card and exile them. Then that player shuffles his or her library.

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 .

I think this has potential except you need to watch out for Surgical Extraction or Extirpate .

I would focus on getting the first one in exile maybe Shelldock Isle *if the ruling allows. If not Bojuka Bog can help get it into exile Then work on battlefield. Then look into Final Parting . That could help out.

To use Hedron Crab to it's full potential you should use fetch lands.

Graveyard size creatures can be stopped easily with exiling a graveyard/library replenish. I mainly play against decks that love to replenish their library so I have to be ready to exile the graveyard.

With mill you want to mill as fast as possible. That's why we use cards like Darkness , Bontu's Last Reckoning , and Ensnaring Bridge

If you mill one of your creatures early game via Mesmeric Orb you are setup for them to be Surgical Extraction or Extirpate . If that happens you wont have enough time to mill them.

Couldn't someone just Extirpate or Surgical Extraction your Myr Retriever ? In this case Extirpate would seem to be the better choice.

Arrok: Extirpate is Split Second graveyard removal used primarily to stop Protean Hulk combos.

I would put something to exile opponents graveyard.. I play a deck that runs 4 Elixir of Immortality and Day's Undoing . Leyline of the Void and Bojuka Bog will help. I play Bojuka Bog as free exile graveyard spell. Definitely get either Extirpate or Surgical Extraction

Extirpate , Memoricide , or other budget Surgical Extraction would provide some good utility.

Would you still use Hedron Crab if Prismatic Vista was out of your budget? I already have the Deltas and a some Extirpate in place of the Surgicals.
