Increasing Confusion Discussion

Seems like it would be impossible to win without Hedron Crab on the battlefield. Altar of the Brood could be an addition to the crab, to increase milling and increase your chances of seeing a mill engine on turn one. With all this mana, it seems like you should have some X casting spells in here. Increasing Confusion could be an option, or even Genesis Wave/Genesis Hydra to dig for what you want and provide an alternate wincon.

Jace's Erasure isn't in mostly because I don't think I have enough draw to make it worthwhile. I don't know what I would swap for Grindclock or Increasing Confusion. Dream Twist, Merfolk Mesmerist, and Thought Scour are decent, but don't seem good enough to make the cut (I usually play with groups in the 4+ size). I also don't have enough merfolk to justify Drowner of Secrets.

Are there fetches that would let me search for any land?

I don't have the creatures to justify Altar of Dementia. Without resummoning my commander, I'd be able to mill 5 cards.

Grindclock and Jace's Erasure are both definitely yes. I would also say Increasing Confusion is a yes. You also might want to consider fetch lands to both thin your deck and to help trigger Hedron Crab, and Dream Twist, Thought Scour, Merfolk Mesmerist, and Drowner of Secrets are all good mill cards.

Jace's Phantasm would work good here, very low cost and can get big easily.

Thought Scour is pretty useful, mlls two and gets you a card for at instant speed.

Tome Scour, Mind Sculpt, Increasing Confusion are also cheap cards for the milling purpose only.

I have these in a very inexpensive mill deck I use for fun, Mill Novatos

Put Archive Trap back in and remove Increasing Confusion. You won't survive long enough to be able to sink a lot of mana into Increasing Confusion, especially when you could be casting cheaper, more effective stuff instead. I mean, it requires ELEVEN mana to produce the same effect as Glimpse the Unthinkable, which costs... two.

Archive Trap, on the other hand, can be cast in response to something the vast majority of Modern decks are doing all the time: crack fetchlands. A turn 1 Archive Trap is the best play you could ever hope for, and the chances of it happening are pretty high, believe me.

Get rid of Mind Grind. It's a strictly worse Mind Funeral (it needs six mana to do the exact same thing Mind Funeral does!), and even Mind Funeral is not that good to begin with. What you want to be running is a full playset of Glimpse the Unthinkable, or Breaking, or Mind Sculpt. Or Mesmeric Orb.

I know this is a casual deck, but you should really, really get rid of all those 5 and 6-drops. Remember, your opponent is going to be attacking you every turn as you mill them out, and you have virtually zero ways to protect yourself while you do it, so you gotta be faster than them - and stuff like Keening Stone won't help you with that.

Finally, why are you even running Moonring Island? It puts you behind in the mana race and its activated ability is completely irrelevant. Why would you want to look at the opponent's next topdeck if you're gonna put all of their stuff in the graveyard anyway?

The foil is currently down, due to the pro offseason, and is currently trading at 70$ as seen here: In the past it has gotten up to 130$ and it will most likely go up during this fall season when people are seeking legacy cards. So I am actually looking for about 70 Dollars in trades, but I am willing to go short on this trade. Just some random cards I'm looking for: 4 Presence of Gond, Sheoldred, the Whispering One, Thromok the Insatiable, 4 Clifftop Retreat, 4 Surgical Extraction, Increasing Confusion, Goblin Guide, Hedron Crab, Sands of Delirium, Sanity Grinding, Grindstone, Mutavault, Ib Halfheart, Goblin Tactician, Brimaz, King of Oreskos, Summoner's Pact. If you have anything else you'd like to recommend, let me know! I also collect bulk foils, little 25 cent foil commons (they round out trades so nicely).

I have no delusions of getting all of these, I'm not that kind of trader. I promise I will make your first trade on Tappedout a great experience!

Awesome deck! +1

I think a good addition might be Increasing Confusion and maybe sideboard Undead Alchemist for dredge decks.

As well, I know this is casual, but your deck is so consistent that you don't even need Ponder. It's an amazing card, but it seems like it's taking space in your deck! You could replace that with 2 Lazav, Dimir Mastermind (2 just for consistency), and 2 Increasing Confusion because that flashback cost is so strong, and it doubles the amount, that would be super storng. As well making your deck modern legal to play in tournaments as well as casual.
