Increasing Confusion Discussion

I mean, if you're going for mill control, you can do quite a bit.

You're going to need some dedicated mill. Like Hedron Crab. If you want to splash black Nemesis of Reason is really good. As well splashing black and putting some money, you can put in Glimpse the Unthinkable.

A one cost mill four, Vision Charm. And control doesn't necessarily mean canceling people's stuff with counter spells. Control can also be hand control. So you can put things in like Inquisition of Kozilek, or Thoughtseize.

Running Increasing Confusion could be extremely strong for you. And Mind Funeral in a mill deck is a must. Mind Grind is kind of optional. It depends on if you want to mill yourself.

There are a lot of options you could go here. If your opponent is using fetch lands, or any library search, Archive Trap is really your friend. And because this is a casual deck, you have access to things like Ponder and Preordain as cantrips.

Added Increasing Confusion, Merchant Scroll and Cryptoplasm.

Milling, tutoring and copying nasties on the table.

Mage-ring actually isn't even in the deck anymore ha, thanks for the catch... It was intended for Increasing Confusion, but it rarely actually happened. I did just add in that other island. Also the archivist is a fantastic suggestion, thank you! I'll check him out and see how it goes.

Throw in 4 of Blue Sun's Zenith. With your infinite mana cast it to draw 20 cards then cast Increasing Confusion or Phenax, God of Deception then mill them to death with Axebane Guardian. Either way you still need cards to use the infinite mana. I also think the deck could use more defenders to go along with Axebane Guardian like Steel Wall or Doorkeeper or Wall of Tanglecord or maybe Wall of Frost.

00xtremeninja & MindAblaze Thanks a lot for the help. I won't be able to run Increasing Confusion, because Jeleva doesn't work with X-spells, but Archive Trap sound really nice. I would rather not mill myself, because Jeleva already does this (rather extreme by exiling) and the initial reason I had for running mill, was so that my opponents would have a bigger downside. The deck runs Mirari and Melek, Izzet Paragon as an example for cards that copy my spells. Thank you for your help.

I would almost do Increasing Confusion over Chill of Foreboding

I revamped my original design and molded it more around a deck posted on YouTube by a user call James Lacount. His original idea was pretty good and VERY fast indeed, but it lacked the Memory Erosions to truly get mill-power off of common game actions, so I tried to make room for 4 of them. Four Increasing Confusions was too many and the same went for 4 Font of Mythos' I thought. Hence, after some major repairs, this is the result. I'm hoping it works better than used to...

Not sure what your play group is like, so control may be really important, but I run a Phenax, God of Deception mill deck You're Milling Me Smalls! that's a bit less control but a lot more mill that has done some work for me.
Some fun cards I have really enjoyed include Guiltfeeder and Increasing Confusion, it's flashback can be great.
I see your already running Hinder, you may want to consider Tunnel Vision too, as that's a dirty little mill combo. Also, Keening Stone seems CMC heavy, but in a EDH game it really isn't hard to have 11 mana available, and watching someones face when you activate Keening Stone right after a Traumatize, priceless.

Good luck!
