Hedron Crab Discussion

Progenitus_Likes_Hugs_Too on Tatyova - Weird Land Stuff

Another reason I'm okay with 44 lands is because of the self mill I have in the deck, such as Hedron Crab and Ipnu Rivulet. These effects are intended to target myself. With Crucible of Worlds, Ramunap Excavator, or Life from the Loam, I should have an okay time building up a land count in my graveyard and playing my lands from the yard. Triggering Tatyova without needing a massive or consistent land count in my hand.

I see what you mean with running 55 lands, but I'm experimenting with alternative ways to access consistent amounts of land drops without needing such a high land count. We'll see how it works out!

TheVectornaut on Fraying Sanity Mill Deck

SaffronOlive built a U/B mill deck around Fraying Sanity that might offer some inspiration. He points out that the enchantment allows you to play fewer and less bombastic mill spells, but it also incentivizes you to hold your mill until after the opponent is cursed. You'll want to have things you can play before turn 3 sets the Sanity engine going. Hedron Crab will still serve this purpose, and Mesmeric Orb was another option that made a lot of sense to me. Sanity triggers on every end step, so the Orb can drain opponents on their turns even when you've tapped out to cast a sorcery on your turn. As far as playing less mill since Sanity is doubling everything, you might cut the Tutelage/Skyscribing draw package for more traditional blue removal. Unsummon, Mana Leak, etc.

I agree with TheVectornaut.

You could also utilize Evanescent Intellect on the Hedron Crab for the turns where you dont have any interaction(Or are sitting on an Archive Trap). Drowner Initiate would also be a pretty solid choice.

I think the weakest cards in the deck are probably Dreadwaters and Chant of the Skifsang. Rather than waiting until turn 5 or 7 for Dreadwaters to be as good as Tome Scour or Mind Sculpt, I'd want recurring mill triggers from a creature. Hedron Crab is the go-to option, but Manic Scribe could be built around too. As for the Chant, you could use a Commit, Anchor to the Aether, or something to that effect to put threats onto an opponent's library and immediately mill them. If you're worried about cards you don't want in graveyards, Surgical Extraction is a tech option. I'd definitely mainboard Visions of Beyond over Divination since it will almost always give you more resources for less mana. An interesting alternative is Skyscribing since it forces the opponent to draw from their thinning deck while interacting favorably with Sphinx's Tutelage. Finally, I'd look at including some Ghost Quarters. The card is just good in general, but it really gets nasty with Archive Trap.

Hey WilltheGamer. I've been playing mill for 2 years now, and I think this a pretty solid build. The Oboro, Palace in the Clouds and Hedron Crab is a very interesting combo. Fraying Sanity and Traumatize is a funny combo. Dimir Aqueduct gets you another land for the trigger of Hedron Crab. I'll be interested in playing you.

Easy to cast things that help stuff you or cast other things might help your QoL like:Lotleth Troll, Hedron Crab, Call the Bloodline, Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip, Pack Rat, Shinen of Life's Roar, Silverglade Pathfinder, Sinister Concoction, Zombie Infestation

Things muldrotha will turn into all upside.

Thanks for the list of combos you've considered; Mindslaver looks disgusting.

Have you considered using Mesmeric Orb, Hermit Druid, or Hedron Crab as self mill engines? They don't cantrip like the instant spells but they pitch a lot more cards.

Mesmeric Orb especially can be disgusting. It randomly hits my friend's combo pieces and gives them a hard time.

Hedron Crab for that constant mill on turn 2 mill for 3 if you can cast 4 crabs by turn 5 that's over 25% of opponents decks milled. What I'm attempting to do is mill my opponent savagely and then use their graveyard against them. It's a pretty fun win con if you don't mind making enemies along the way.
