Well.... Where is all the mill? ;(

Archive Trap and Sanity Grinding is the only thing that mills.....

Isn't this just a MUD deck? :D

Hey Unforgivn_II I'm interested in your Garruk, Apex Predator , I have a Beacon of Unrest , Burn at the Stake , Divine Reckoning , Increasing Confusion , Time Stretch , Darksteel Colossus , Gifts Ungiven , Kami of the Crescent Moon , Knight of the Reliquary , and Treacherous Pit-Dweller and if you're interested I'd be willing to trade in most any combination you'd like for Garruk

Ratchet Bomb - $1 (Scars of Mirrodin)
2x Killing Wave - $.67 ea
Total: $25.34

Increasing Confusion features paper, but that card is shockingly worth something.

Well, it has changed a bit since my last post. The manabase has been shuffled up quite often.

As for the idea of using fetches, I actually think they would be quite bad in a deck like this. (Good for us, because damn they are pricy) Fetches actually tend to be dead cards for us, as it forces us to run even fewer "real" lands. In a deck where you can draw through your whole library in a long game, there's no reason to put in a search effect.

Now, the decklist:

Vengeant Maniac Playtest

Modern Scimatth7


Much more control-y, especially early game. You rely more on your spells themselves than the flashback bonuses early on.

Since in this version, I've currently cut 2 Secrets of the Dead and all of the Increasing Confusion , drawing through your whole deck is actually much more difficult. I don't have to count on Laboratory Maniac hitting the field as often.

Also, can I just point out that aside from the lands this deck only runs two rares? Laboratory Maniac and Devil's Play . That's crazy!

If I had access/money for the cards, I would love to get a legit black-blue mill deck. Unfortunately that won't happen any time soon.

And believe me, I wish I had more Hedron Crab s.

The Ring of Evos Isle can give my guys hexproof and give some one like my Undead Alchemist a bigger boost. And I've beaten people down in life before their library emptied with combos like Aqueous Form and the Ring. Or Invisible Stalker /AEther Figment and the ring.

I had two Increasing Confusion s in my original version, but I took them out for the moment due to their usual high/best effective cost for a limited amount of damage. We'll see if they stay on the sideboard long.

You should really consider making this a blue/ black mill deck. That way you can add cards like consuming abberation, Mind Funeral , Breaking / Entering , and Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker

Ring of Evos Isle doesn't really fit with your theme.

Take a look at my deck, you are missing some really good ones like Tome Scour , Memory Sluice , Increasing Confusion , Mind Sculpt , Archive Trap - Ghost Quarter combo, Psychic Spiral , and Chronic Flooding

Why no Increasing Confusion ? Even if it's countered, you can flash it back same turn and just keep milling Price
