Also, Forced Fruition can be very funny in a mill deck like this haha.

Looking at some random cards on the database I saw Disciple of the Ring . Could be fun.
Those are all possibilities. I'm not particularly knowledgeable about self-mill.
Also, and I know many would disagree with this, but I have a soft spot for Fog Bank .

Hey, I like the changes. Nice job, you found several good cards in your collection.
You still need to cut two cards to make 100. My suggestions of cuts to consider are Selective Snare and Power Taint . Snare is very situational and a sorcery. Unless you're against a lot of tribal decks in your playgroup it's not worth playing. Especially since you're already playing Icy Blast which is the same mana cost, an instant and can target any amount of creatures. The 2 life drain of Taint is not worth playing in 40 life Commander. Your opponent can just ignore it or if they want to pay the 2 mana to prevent the 2 life.
Other cards to consider cutting are:
- Spellbook : you have Thought Vessel which gives you no max hand size as well as ramp, don't also need Spellbook. Another no max hand size card that also gives you mana to consider is Reliquary Tower . It doesn't take up a valuable deck spot since it's a land.
- Brine Elemental : not worth the mana cost.
- Fog Bank : a strategy is to attack with unblockable creatures, Bank can't attack and has no power.
- Claustrophobia : very lackluster removal spell since all it does is tap the creature, both Imprisoned in the Moon and Deep Freeze are the same mana cost and much better.

Sorry for answering so late HobbyGamer007. You wrote some excellent suggestions, even if I don't agree with all of them. I've thought about the deck for a long time and played some games, considered everythin what everybody suggestes here and because of all this I will make some (great?) changes after the Modern: Horizons release. I will cut Masako the Humorless , Fog Bank , probalby Perimeter Captain and maybe some more :) I also agree with you, that the boots aen't the best in this deck and won't need a slot.

To clarify, I never said Teyo is the card to go here, just that he's better than misako :) If you want to try him out at all in commander, this is probably the only deck where he's worth mentioning. Yeah in my meta arcedes would never stick for a turn cycle. This deck is easily thwarted if you never let Arcedes, High Alert or Assault Formation stick, so being able to fight through that is a must. If you face many counterspells Autumn's Veil is a great addition here as well. I dislike Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots here since you don't get much for their cost. Ideally this deck goes someting like:
The nice thing about this is that noone is ever gonna remove or counter your walls. You just need to get Arcedes through. Cards like Force of Will Pact of Negation can help here in an extremely counter heavy meta if you want to play arcedes on curve, or you stay back build up to like 30 Damage wich on T7 onwards is often nearly lethal for a player and then play Arcedes for a big swing. Hardly any playgroup will let him stick for long since he also draws a lot of cards, which makes him so good. If you give him hexproof or shroud all you do is force out a sweeper which you don't want to happen at all, so counterspells are clearly the way to go here imho.
Changes I would do right now:
Cut: Masako the Humorless doesn't do enough Fog Bank 2 mana 2/2 flyer doesn't seem so good Skyshroud Claim ramps you when you're done ramping. average cmc of the deck is 2.2 Perimeter Captain cut for Wall of Runes Island Average cmc of the deck is 2.2
On a Budget add: Slagwurm Armor Might be really good. Will never get removed and 3 mana for +6 seems kinda broken Geist of the Archives Smooth out draws a bit Rampant Growth Fixing and Ramp Meekstone Defense Autumn's Veil Protection/Control

I feel as though Assault Formation , Wakestone Gargoyle or Rolling Stones is too good not to include here- a heavy green element can be easily supported as the entire colour loves searching for basics, and also gives access to pure value in Tower Defense and Wall of Mulch .

Probably already considered it, but if your meta isn't too aggressive you could cut Fog Bank in favor of Baral, Chief of Compliance . Extra spell ramp plus a source of Kefneternal triggers on rare occasions (and 3 toughness isn't too bad either).

Doomblade, take out ghoulcaller's chant (your draw of chant to return lab maniac could just be another lab maniac instead), add ponder over forbiden alchemy as its just better aint it, Windfall is good for this alongside Kami of the Crescent Moon Howling Mine and even Jace Beleren , since the goal is to win through self mill via demonic consultation might wanna consider removing all the stalkers and scholars and shit and just throwing in like Fog Bank and Wall of Frost
Couldn't link cards as unknown is an un set and none of the linked cards are legal....
