Increasing Confusion Discussion

I think Isochron Scepter needs more imprintable cards, only 2 have CMC =< 2 as of now. Maybe you can cut it or add more low cost spells, like Thought Scour for example.

Increasing Confusion maybe could work here. Also, Jace, Memory Adept is a planeswalker that fits the theme.

Oh yeah I almost forgot Trepanation Blade and Undead Alchemist!

Sorry for the monocolored suggestion though.

Joker1430 Thank you for your input. I couldn't agree with you more the biggest weakness to this deck is removal . So I am thinking about putting in Spell Pierce or Swan Song. I am also been testing out Increasing Confusion to add a mill aspect to the deck.

Hi thank you for the comment. I was just testing Increasing Confusion. My win conditions are:

Axebane Guardian + Freed from the Real + Genesis Wave ( I draw my whole library except for couple cards so I dont mill myself and give infinite P/T to my creatures. )

Assault Formation + Axebane Guardian + Freed from the Real

Axebane Guardian + Genesis Wave + Umbral Mantle ( you need 4 creatures on the field)

My tutor is Drift of Phantasms

My draw engine Genesis Wave I might add Collected Company (when it rotates out)

The decks biggest weakness is burn spells and white removal. I might add Vines of Vastwood or some 1 mana blue counter spell. As for your suggestion Archers' Parapet it would not work because I have to tap it. So I would need two Freed from the Real in play? Using Genesis Wave, Banefire,Increasing Confusion I think would be more effective.

Hi there. I too have a defender deck. Mine is focused on mill though. Its got a really fun, unusual strategy. And it also uses the Axebane Guardian + Freed from the Real combo.

Check it out some time. Labyrinth of dementia

I suppose I'm just not 100% clear on the win condition here.. is it Assault Formation? Increasing Confusion?

Try Archers' Parapet that'll give you a wall and a win condition

youre playing a self-mill deck that largely wants creatures in the graveyard, i think you might want to minimize the number of non-creature-non-land cards in your deck and probably move things like your kill spells to the sideboard. tome scour, putrefy, and sultai charm are all sweet n everything, but they do nothing for you if you just mill them into your graveyard on your own.

between splinterfright, nyx weaver, hedron crab, and satyr wayfinder your self mill game is pretty solid, tome scour is fine but i feel like most games it could just wind up in the grave and do nothing for you, but you could get some extra mileage out of Hedron Crab + Satyr Wayfinder if you run fetchlands like Verdant Catacombs, Misty Rainforest, and Polluted Delta, or Evolving Wilds and Terramorphic Expanse if you wanna keep it budget.

Skaab ruinator is pretty sweet, but he kinda inherently works against the whole self-mill / big-graveyard theme when he removes critters from your yard, but another awesome target for it aside from misthollow griffin is Torrent Elemental, that might do something sweet for you.

another problem you might have is overmilling your library and finding too many assets you need in your graveyard. you might like some solid retrieval creatures like Eternal Witness or Den Protector but they kinda work against the strategy by almost only having the sole purpose of getting cards out of the yard. you're already running nyx weaver, but you might like to try out Soul of Innistrad since you can mill him into the grave and still use his effect, and Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip can be pretty sweet if you can get her to flip and minus (X) her for (3) right away to get any of your 3-drops straight onto the battlefield.

Aside from all that, flashback cards might treat you pretty sweet, like Increasing Confusion, Increasing Ambition or Increasing Savagery, or Artful Dodge, Deadly Allure, or Tracker's Instincts. just a bunch of ideas for you, like the deck +1 :D

for the mana it costs for Whirler Rogue with Jhessian Thief, wouldnt you get more draw from Font of Mythos? yeah, they draw too.. but thats 2 more cards off the top of their deck technically..

and this is just me, im not a big fan of Increasing Confusion. if you pay six mana they lose 5 cards.. pay it again and they lose 10 for a total of 15 cards.. for the price of 12 mana.. im sorry but ive just never been able to convince myself that it was efficient.

and im with freakingShane when it comes to Jace's Archivist. the ability to activate it on the opponent's turn is just nasty. BUT..... if your going to keep Whirler Rogue, is it too much pressure to keep the thropters out? or should you have more artifacts? if youre concerned with Jace's Archivist dying? then maybe Teferi's Puzzle Box is the way to go? if you DO decide to go the Font of Mythos route, and let their draw add to the mill, then theyll have too many cards to count. Reliquary Tower will make your hand size limitless. and for every card Jace's Archivist flushes, you draw one... should you choose to include Geth's Grimoire

Faytl on Dralnu and His Recursion

A card that might be able to help you is Increasing Confusion, as well as other mill spells like Traumatize, since you can hit yourself with them. I'm having trouble determining your wincon here, is it basically just swinging with stuff like the demons and Inkwell while Dralnu acts as your board control?
