Glimpse the Unthinkable Discussion

I know they're expensive, but Glimpse the Unthinkable is a must. Breaking is also just better than Mind Grind.

If you want to go mill, you're much much better of going Dimir. Monoblue misses out on Glimpse the Unthinkable, Mind Funeral, Crypt Incursion and all the black removal effects. Second off, you don't have some of the best staples for mill even in blue. Archive Trap and Visions of Beyond are two of the only good reasons to play a mill deck at all, to not play them is practically suicidal. Finally, the sideboard makes no sense here. When would you ever want to side in sunscorched desert? When could that possibly ever be a good idea? You want graveyard hate in the sideboard instead. If you were playing black, you would get stuff like Nihil Spellbomb, Crypt Incursion and Ravenous Trap. Instead you'll have to settle for something like Relic of Progenitus. But you at least need something.

sylvannos on Azorious/Dimir Deck Help

Here is a really sweet low-budget, Azorious mill deck built around Sphinx's Tutelage and Fog effects.

The issue with going straight mill is you basically become a really bad burn deck. Instead of your opponent having 20 life, they have 53 life and lose 1 life per turn from each draw step. So if you consider a burn spell like Skullcrack, it deals 15% of your opponent's life total for . Compare that to Breaking / Entering, which costs and mills 8 cards out of your opponent's 51 (soonest you can cast Breaking / Entering). It's roughly the same at 15.6% of your opponent's "life." However, Breaking / Entering and Glimpse the Unthinkable are the two best direct mill spells. Everything after them is low quality, compared to the massive amounts of 3 damage burn spells.

Because of this, it's much easier to just play a control deck that has a mill finisher. By simply playing something like Sphinx's Tutelage, then sitting back and killing/Fog'ing everything else, you'll have a much easier time winning the game. Not only that, but you don't have to worry about trying to setup Jace's Phantasm or Hedron Crab. You can take those out of your deck and replace them with more removal and draw spells.

I would consider moving towards combining your two decks and eventually building Esper Mill. You play all of the Holy Day cards in white, the draw spells in blue, and then all of the utility and removal in black.

Lastly, Nephalia Drownyard is really useful. I'd also play Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver in multiples, possibly even 4 copies. Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver is an absolute brick wall against aggro and puts control decks on a fast clock. The real king is going to be Visions of Beyond due to how easy it is to get 20 cards in a graveyard.

your mill package is not nearly strong enough to consistently win. you need Manic Scribe, Glimpse the Unthinkable, Archive Trap, Hedron Crab, and probably Ensnaring Bridge if you want to be able to win. cut Codex Shredder, Millstone, Coerced Confession, Destroy the Evidence, and basically every sorcery and artifact you have but Seer's Lantern and Tome Scour. replace your 3 creatures with Fog Bank

Running every possible fetch land is a good way to get the most out of your hedron crabs.Otherwise have you considered splashing black to get access to the best mill cards? Glimpse the Unthinkable Crypt Incursion Mind Funeral Darkness Breaking / Entering (play both halves with Shelldock Isle ).Ensnaring Bridge and Mesmeric Orb are also good pieces.

KsP_FtW on Oops, Were You Going to Use Those?

take out red, run black and run stuff like Consuming Aberration, Nightveil Specter, Hedron Crab, Glimpse the Unthinkable, and other mill spells, because blue/black is the best mill colors.
