Glimpse the Unthinkable Discussion

Adding black for Glimpse the Unthinkable is in my opinion must because it is easily maybe best mill card in whole Modern. And Fatal Push is great, you don't have any removal.

List seems fine for casual play, but for competitive it's just too slow.

I absolutely love your well thought out response. Thank you :D

I have a few of those cards in my maybe board as I think I might work them in, but I'm not sure how. And on your, and my husbands recommendation I've gotten rid of Pilfered Plans lol I liked it at first :P I'm on the fence with Tome Scour but if I get rid of it then it will probably be for the Manic Scribe which looks awesome! I hadn't seen it before and it could fit perfectly, much like the Bitter Ordeal. Zomgah that works so nicely with uh...everything?

It reads "for each permanent put into the graveyard this turn" it doesn't specify from the battlefield (though I re-upped the Damnation to 2 again anyway), so I may be wrong but if not then that with Glimpse the Unthinkable would be a nice finisher.

The following are too high in CMC:
Swarm Intelligence
Consuming Aberration too slow
Nemesis of Reason slow
Jace's Ingenuity
Jace's Sanctum
Startled Awake slow

Suggestions to put in:
Glimpse the Unthinkable, Breaking, Mind Sculpt, Shriekhorn, Tome Scour, Remand, possibly some way to make your opponent search their library like Ghost Quarter, and place Twincast on your hedron crab.

Your current list will never get anywhere near a win while waiting for all the mana to cast those useless creatures.

Mind Sculpt and Glimpse the Unthinkable are nice options.

I've got a deck similar to this, very fun build.

Hey there, always good to see another mill player. I believe that if you were running a super creature-based mill build, then Whispering Madness and Memory Sluice would be much better than they'll do for your current deck list. With that being said, you should consider Breaking and Crypt Incursion to take their place. Breaking will simply act as a weaker Glimpse the Unthinkable while Crypt Incursion is a major key to keeping you alive against some decks while completely putting the game out of reach for other opponents.

Like I said, the list looks great! Those are just some suggestions to consider. You can also come check out my list if you'd like and see if anything might inspire you.

Happy milling

Argy If memory serves, changes of artwork is also a way that Wizards uses to protect the value of a card. The new artwork version tends to have a lower price (compare Lorwyn Thoughtseize vs TherosThoughtseize), but if they put the bump new printing to mythic AND change the art (see Snapcaster Mage and Cavern of Souls), then the price barely changes at all. My predictions are (say 6 months after release):

I'm actually pretty hyped for this set- I thought it would be mostly jank, but this is actually the best series of reprints in years. I'll be looking to pick up a lot of cards from the set, but I'm not sure I'll buy a box unless my LGS is super cool as usual and sell it for msrp

For mill, you really need about ten fetch lands to maximize the effect of Hedron Crab. It can mean the difference between winning and losing. Mill is not a competitive option in modern at the moment, but If you manage to maximize the best cards efficiency it can hold its own against some decks. Also, Fraying Sanity, Traumatize, and Glimpse the Unthinkable are great cards to use, though Glimpse is pricy. A Hedron crab on turn one, then Fraying sanity on turn 3 with a fetch land turns into 12 cards milled just that turn before mana is even tapped. Traumatize on turn 5 with fraying mills their deck, give or take a card.
