Glimpse the Unthinkable Discussion

Hmm... if we are in Esper... you have the mill aspect?

Glimpse the Unthinkable and Mind Sculpt both account for an ungodly 40x and 28x cards respectively running a full playset. That's more than entire library, on top of what you have removed with the aforementioned Surgical Extraction and Extirpate.

A playset of both... that's an additional 32x (16x each for a playset of both) card potential assuming you hit something such as Lightning Bolt and Counterspell with them.

Your total removal at this point of cards is 40 + 28 + 32 = 100 cards. That is so overkill that you are guaranteed success.

Then you have Nine Lives, Solemnity and Phyrexian Unlife.

Throw in some Counterspell and possibly Negate to slow the game until you get those and you've got yourself a deck.

Call it... Nine Sighs.

You're welcome ;)

Hey Yarok,

Thank you for the card recommendations, Glimpse the Unthinkable would be an incredible addition to this deck.

As far as competitive, I never play tournaments so I built it to have fun with friends. So 'competitive among friends' but not competitive in tournament.

Looking good. Some great cards to consider would be Glimpse the Unthinkable,Thief of Sanity,Phenax, God of Deception. Plz go check out my deck Omnath, Locus of Raves *Tribal Build. It is really cool and tells everyone about it, trying to make it popular

Definitely Needed Cards:

Hedron Crab: because it can consistently mill and works well with fetches. 4x

Glimpse the Unthinkable: straight up best two mana mill card. 4x

Archive Trap: easy to play it as free in modern since it is an instant and everybody uses fetches. 4x

Mesmeric Orb: even though it mills you, its worth it since it can mill a crap ton of your opponents deck. 4x

Visions of Beyond: this will easily draw you thre cards for one mana because of how much milling you would be doing. 4x

Drown in the Loch: this card will counter almost any cards or just kill anything for 2 mana! 4x

Maybe Cards:

Breaking: just a little bit more mill.

Crypt Incursion: Some life gain for matchups against creature decks.

Surgical Extraction: It lets you take out all key cards or combo pieces from opponent's deck!

Scheming Symmetry: Cheap and tutors a card for you and your opponent. You can also activate archive trap for free after that and make sure the opponent doesn't get that card into his/her hand.

Cards to Cut: Compelling Argument: Milling five for two mana isn't really good and the cycling ability is just meh as well because card draw usually isn't a problem in mill decks. -4x

Jace's Archivist: It just cost too much mana and four mana for a wheel that can die easily is just too much. I know it works well with sphinx's tutelage, but it's a little slow. -4x

Jace's Phantasm: It can provide you with a good body, but a true mill deck wouldn't need it. -4x\

Serum Visions or Opt: You don't need that much card draw. -4x

Lands: 29 lands is wayyy too much. 22-24 should suffice. I would recommend 4x Watery Grave since you can fetch it with polluted delta. 4x Field of Ruin instead of dismal backwater. Tap lands are not very good and 1 life isn't really that important. Also field of ruin provides you utility against land based decks and will allow you to fix your mana and activates archive trap. Also, cut some baisic lands or scry lands for some Darkslick Shores, Prismatic Vista or Drowned Catacomb

Flooremoji i did cut off the monsters & some mill counters to add Collective Brutality & Inquisition of Kozilek as per your suggestion and it is working quite better. Also added +1 Glimpse the Unthinkable to have the playset. I do have x2 Mesmeric Orb and might think on having the full playset although i am not so very fond of milling myself out, but i guess it might work. I mentioned on the previous comment my opinion regarding Mission Briefing vs Twincast and would like your opinion on the matter. I did take a look at the 2 lists that you gave me and updated my deck to cover some core cards as mentioned above, thank you so much for the feedback everybody!

I tried to balance it with the exile trigger, but a really easy turn-one Blightsteel Colossus in Vintage or Modern using Glimpse the Unthinkable.

Not tempted to run a cheeky Glimpse the Unthinkable? Guess it doesn't help much in multiplayer - but you could sideboard it in for 1v1
