Glimpse the Unthinkable Discussion

Destroit4040 on deck rape

neat idea, the naming seems rather odd, I don't see a connection. Emrakul, the Promised End I think does what the title suggests. Either way you got my attention. Mind Funeral or Glimpse the Unthinkable could help speed it up maybe the deck looks like it goes fast.

abby315 on W: to finish Legacy Reanimator, ...

I'm SOOOO close to finishing B/R Reanimator, my first legacy deck! I fell in love with the reanimator strategy by playing a cube and now I have a NEED for T1 Griselbrand :P

The cards I still need:
4x Thoughtseize (LORWYN ART HEAVILY PREFERRED but I may have to shelve my pride, so feel free to make an offer for Theros ones.)
1x Entomb (any art ok, Invocation would be INCREDIBLE)
3x Chancellor of the Annex
2x Griselbrand (promo is fine)
1x Collective Brutality
3x Animate Dead (Graveborn foil preferred, EMA art least preferred)
3x Faithless Looting

I also need these lands, which I'm most willing to trade the Goyfs/Lilianas towards:

1x Badlands
1x Bayou
2x Verdant Catacombs
1x Marsh Flats

I don't really need the enemy colored fetches so I'm looking to trade for the above stuff first, but they're nice anyway. I can contribute cash towards a dual land and am willing to trade heavily in your favor.

2x Tarmogoyf (MM3)
1x Liliana of the Veil (MM3)
1x FOIL Damnation (MM3)
1x Glimpse the Unthinkable (RAV)
1x Japanese Liliana, the Last Hope
1x Torrential Gearhulk Masterpiece
1x Pithing Needle Masterpiece
1x Combustible Gearhulk Masterpiece

SDCC JACE, NISSA, and GIDEON (aka zombie walkers), and a lot of FROM THE VAULT cards. Binder is full of other value things besides, just sort by $. Let's make a deal! :)

Oh man, you are totally right thanks for the heads up. I like the idea for Gifts Ungiven and the ability to only find two cards and have them both go to the yard, however the CMC is just too high for what I'm trying to do. I think I'm going to try Glimpse the Unthinkable instead, and see how that works out. Thanks again for the insight. I appreciate it.

So you should focus on mill the opponent. Glimpse the Unthinkable Mind Funeral and Thought Scour are 4 ofs Jace, Memory Adept is ways too slow. Crypt Incursion should be a sideboard card also Damnation is questionable in maindeck, but if you want to go to midrange it is an option but i would play it as 2 of.

For the sake of the hedron crab you have to invest in Polluted Delta to have some more triggers available. Also Watery Grave is good. Shelldock Isle is an option.

Also you could consider playing Breaking and other spells like Archive Trap and such to make it more consistent your main goal is to win because he has no cards in library you wont win with a majority of cards for control.

You could consider to splash in white if you got the money for the lands to play Path to Exile to have pretty good removal or to activate your archive trap, for that reason you should also consider to play some Ghost Quarter.

To get room for all those cards i would cut Fog Bank, Darkness, Crypt Incursion. You shoild also consider playing some removal like Fatal Push.

I hope its not too confusing and its quite clear why i made those suggestions. If not ask me. I hope it helps to make it more stable.

benw mirko vosk is a 2/4. He doesnt have hexproof, indes, or shroud. Dreadbore, Terminate, Go for the Throat, Path to Exile, Swords to Plowshares, Decimate, Wing Snare, Pongify, all of these kill him. Most before he could deal damage. the only evasion he has is flying, in which green snipes him down all day too.

Most cedh decks run at least 31 lands. 31/4 is roughly 8. Thats 5-8 times you need to hit a SINGLE player to mill them out. And many players run some sort of graveyard shuffle, like blue with Timetwister. And this is multiplayer cEDH. Which means you have 2 other opponents besides the one you just hit. And getting in even 5 hits with him? well hes a 5 drop. Say you get him out turn 3. By then, zur and teferi have usually set up most of the lock if not all. then youre talking another 5 turns to kill 1 person off milling. Thats turn 8, and by then someone else probably won. Even if you want to add in all those other fun things like Glimpse the Unthinkable and Archive Trap, they wont bring you much further. Maybe speed up everything by 2-3 turns for 1 player. But mirko still wont be able to win quickly without Helm of Obedience and Leyline of the Void. By the time you get them out if you had to hardcast leyline? turn 3 activation, which someone can stop pretty simply too. Its hard to explain all the fine details but this is the best i can do on lack of sleep lol

have you considered this card Memory Erosion as a control option I have a mill deck Where did your deck go? on here that I own I have found in play its very useful especially against control or creature midrange base and if you have consuming aberration out this guy is hilarious Phenax, God of Deception milling the amount of the aberrations toughness is almost a win condition and a funny one at that and I feel that Tome Scour is also essential for a mill deck only because its mill 5 for one blue it may event help to reduce the deck cost to make it more budget its the reason I didn't use Glimpse the Unthinkable I love to see mill decks and this is a great one I will be testing against mine I think today to see how it flows

Nice deck; I run something similar. Have yet to post it on tappedout. Have you considered Glimpse the Unthinkable?
