I like the potential this deck has. What do you think about swapping Fraying Sanity and Traumatize ? I think it would help mill faster.

I would trade out two Fraying Sanity for two Traumatize .

Glimpse the Unthinkable should be in the main board in place of Mind Sculpt in my opinion. Fraying Sanity might also be good.

Hi there.

That is a very cool way to twist the use of Persistent Petitioners (!!).

If the main plan is to win with Jace, Wielder of Mysteries though, I'd play all 4 copies. First up is the matter of actually drawing them - since they are the only win-con, you want the best possible odds of finding them. Then there is the case of accidentally milling the Jaces, that will probably lose you the game on the spot. More Jaces = less risk of that happening.

I know Fraying Sanity is there to help self-mill faster, but they will also end up getting binned quite often. Instead I suggest cards like Radical Idea and Chemister's Insight . They only "mill" (draw) a couple of cards when used, but can add value even though they end up getting milled by the Petitioners. That way they can still help you dig for Jace.

I'd go with the full 4x Ipnu Rivulet too as they're more or less free and help further the plan.

Good luck with the brew :)

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!

Fraying Sanity also mills if creatures die so some hidden upside there:)

Despite the price, Fraying Sanity tends to be rather potent in mill strategies.

@ itachi45 The plan is to use Scheming Symmetry to play Archive Trap and fetch Fraying Sanity , then every mill spell and discard spell is doubled. Now we can use Mission Briefing to play them again. Thats the dream anyway. Thanks for the upvote.
