Increasing Confusion Discussion

  • Change your deck from Standard legal to Modern legal. Modern allows for a lot more freedom in deck construction, standard only allows you to choose cards from the last few expansions.
  • Move Tormod's Crypt to the sideboard, you likely wont need to exile a decks graveyard. It will be available when you need it.
  • Replace 2x Altar of the Brood with 4x Jace's Erasure to save money. ($1.00 USD -> $0.13 USD).
  • Remove Reliquary Tower. It costs $3 USD and you have nothing that benefits you from having a large hand. You're not likely to get over 7 cards either, because of your mana curve.
  • Remove Counterbore and Countermand. They are too expensive to use as counterspells, you'd have to leave 4 - 5 mana open every turn, and before that they'd be dead cards.
  • Remove Forced Fruition. It's mana cost is high enough that you may never play it, having only one of them means you'll probably never draw it, and it's almost $7.
  • If you want some slightly expensive cards, you could get 4x Increasing Confusion. They're almost $2 each but allow you to mill your oppoenent twice per card, and it scales highly with your mana. These can replace dreawaters and 3 other mill cards.

MindAblaze on Simic Mill. Could it work?

If you're ramping into Increasing Confusions and playing like...TurboFog, I don't see why not.

It also depends on your meta.

I like Mind's Dilation but Increasing Confusion would be better suited for 1v1 and Nightscape Familiar just doesn't fit.

NotoriouslyGood on Dimir mill, like where's my library?

Mesmeric Orb, Visions of Beyond ? Also Altar of the Brood triggers of all the rogue tokens,creatures and land drops and is a really cheap artifact that ends up milling for a bunch.I think Increasing Confusion is a one-of.And maybe one less Mindgrind or Psychic Drain since you are on only 22 lands..

Kezvin- While I enjoy cool combos, this deck is competitive. It is considered a Turbo Mill deck. It uses the most cost efficient spells to take everything from the opponent and as little as possible from yourself. Targeting myself with a Scour is counter productive, regardless of what move I have next turn.

Furthermore, my creature base is to small to have any creature exist beyond one or two turns, then chump block (this is best case scenario). Scribe would be a turn wasted I could have cast a Glimpse, Breaking; or save mana for a Remand or Path.

Consuming Aberration, Mind Grind, Increasing Confusion, Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker and Manic Scribe all have their place and are fun in competitive casual play, I agree; but all, for one reason or another have no place in Modern competitive decks.

thanks for the input!
Go forth, and conquer!

The cards you really want to draw every game needs to have 3-4 X of in the deck. Having only 1 x of means you can play 4-5 games without drawing it once.

With that said here are a few more myr you might want to consider: Lodestone Myr - Myr Enforcer - Perilous Myr - Prototype Portal - Tempered Steel - Steel Overseer - Lodestone Golem.

Cards I would consider taking out of the deck;

Sword of Vengeance - Increasing Confusion - Shape Anew

You should probably look to add some control instead Path to Exile - Mana Leak - Stasis Snare - comes to mind.

Couldn't this be worded:

Dusk and Dawn

Sorcery - Rare

Destroy all creatures with power 3 or more. If this card was cast from a graveyard, return all creatures with power 2 or less to your hand instead.


You know, just borrow design from Increasing Confusion, but make it so you do not have to rotate the card.

Thanks for the suggestions. I didn't realize that Increasing Confusion even existed. I'll definitely add some of those to my deck.
