Ghoulcaller's Bell Discussion

Winterblast on Commander Mill

You might want to have a look at Ghoulcaller's Bell, Codex Shredder, Pyxis of Pandemonium, Lantern of Insight, Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal. Also Mnemonic Betrayal (Yawgmoth's Will for your opponents' cards) is really good when you mill. I would reconsider the mana rocks you have, especially since you are missing the cheap (money-wise) but good ones such as Fellwar Stone, Talisman of Dominance, Dimir Signet. Dark Ritual is a must play.

Notion thief will want Windfall, Timetwister, Whispering Madness, Time Spiral...whatever your budget allows.

I don't think you need Lion's Eye Diamond and Night's Whisper. With chains of mephistopheles in the deck, Impulse would be better than drawing, also Tainted Pact works as a bigger Impulse and as a win con with Lab Man and the mana base you have (only one copy per land name - exchange 1 Island with Snow-Covered Island). Dark Confidant is also nice for drawing without "drawing".

If you want to focus more on the draw lock you could play Spirit of the Labyrinth and Uba Mask as I do in my Circu deck. The lantern package with Lantern of Insight, Codex Shredder, Pyxis of Pandemonium and Ghoulcaller's Bell along with Future Sight might be worth considering then. These cards would act as a win con with Dramatic Reversal and Isochron Scepter and Paradox Engine could do the same trick. That whole package could replace the win with Lab Man, which feels a bit risky for a control deck imo.

Circu absolutely shouldn't be played without dramatic scepter as it's a smooth win con with the commander and pretty much the only reason why Circu is a really strong commander...Isochron Scepter and Dramatic Reversal doesn't even need to go mana positive with Circu to win, it just needs 2 mana on rocks. Same with Paradox Engine, Isochron Scepter and any instant. And Ghoulcaller's Bell as the 3rd mill rock is rather important, more than the clunkier ways to remove the top cards of someone's library.

Notion Thief without any Wheel? Why?

See Beyond is a must.

Ghoulcaller's Bell is so slow, too. I'd completely cut out all the creatures, too, for more fog and card draw. They don't help you win, really, and if you're fogging anyway, blocking doesn't matter. You definitely shouldn't be aiming to win with damage if you're doing turbofog.

@Megalomania Thanks for your comment!

Im currently using Psychic Network instead of Field of Dreams as they are functionally similar and drastically different in price. My playgroup have allowed this as it also quite a funny card and not game breaking.

The main wincon at the moment is a Dramatic+Scepter combo creating infinite untaps. I can utilise this to mill everyone out with one of my lantern pieces then pass turn. Though I do like to utilise Nightveil Specter to use an opponents deck Vs them.

Multiplayer really does restrict Lantern's effectiveness. The trick is to let them play their deck and not lock them out. Just control the bits that are a threat directly to yourself. It usually pans out to be a "Go on.. you can have that" and have an ally for a turn or two.

Thank you for the card suggestion! Future Sight does look interesting as an effect to try to benefit against my own Ghoulcaller's Bell effects. I will give it a go and the magus that goes with it.

Ghoulcaller's Bell is another mill card to use; and with Sensei's Divining Top, you'll know what it is that's hitting the grave.

I like the combo of Lantern of Insight and Ghoulcaller's Bell when running Daxos. My deck is focused more on the utility of the commander as opposed to pumping it up; and it's budget, about a hundred bucks. Maybe you'll find other cards you like within.

rwking082 thanks! Lazav is a fiend.

Ah, it didn't even cross my mind Bloodchief Ascension + Mindcrank was a combo, sweet. Will likely add Duskmantle to give it a couple angles.

I played a bunch of games with this yesterday and it definitely needs some work. As much as I love the idea of giving Lazav a sword or a hammer, the voltron theme is way too inconsistent here since the only thing I want to equip is the Witch-King himself and he comes down way too late in my opinion with him costing 4 coloured mana to cast and 4cmc in the first place.

So I think I'll go more into mill and graveyard stuff. I'm going to try out a heavy clone theme with Mirror Gallery, so I can make an army of Lazav, Dimir Mastermind's. Or The Scarab God's, or Sheoldred, Whispering One's haha. Come check back in a couple weeks if you like :)

At this stage I still like the little mill artifacts as I just love the feeling of tapping Ghoulcaller's Bell with Lazav out and seeing if any goodies pop up. Want this to be more of a gimicky fun deck than a mill deck, but will test it out with some of the stronger mill cards from your list.

Thanks heaps for the suggestions, +1'ing your Lazav too.
