Ipnu Rivulet Discussion

I added an additional 3 lands that allow me to add colorless or blue mana, with an added ability to sacrifice the card and have the opponent discard 4 cards.Ipnu Rivulet In addition to this, I also added a few cards that will allow me to have better card draw including Dream Fracture , Visions of Beyond. Still a work in progress. Let me know how this could be made better. Can you explain to me more as to how Day's Undoing works? If the point of a mill deck is to remove all of their cards from their library, how does it help me to allow them to shuffle the cards that they've discarded back into their hand? Wouldn't I be starting from scratch? I know that there are ways to exile cards in your opponents graveyards, but I don't currently have any in this deck. What am I missing?

Muldrotha only lets you play a single creature from the gy each turn (and vivien but eh). This deck does not support the City's Blessing very well. What was your plan there, sticking 6 lands and 3 other creatures? Not really reliable. If you want to abuse Muldrotha you can play a revolt package and run stuff like Renegade Map, Evolving Wilds, Ipnu Rivulet and Unbridled Growth to get insane card advantage lategame. But at that point, why not just slam Carnage Tyrant and win? Seems sketchy imo

Hey been doing a lot of reading on these cards and am understanding the deck and its synergies a lot better. Now that I'm looking to the land base however I'm a bit confused again.

I understand that Desert of the Mindful is fuel for Ipnu Rivulet, but why choose Desert of the Mindful over any desert that doesn't enter the battlefield tapped? There are already 4 other lands that come in tapped with Memorial to Genius, and it seems like having your mana drops interrupted anywhere from turn 2-5 really hurts. Do you notice the coming in tapped hurting your game much?

Still playing a modified version in MTG Arena, most likely going to buy this as a physical deck for FNM. :)

This might be going a little deep, but maybe you could try playing 2-3 Ipnu Rivulet in the mana base? I've seen standard UW Approach lists use it to mill themselves after they cast their first Approach of the Second Sun to get closer to the one they tucked in their library.

cdkime on Wait, Mill What Now?

I did some playtesting using your current list, and came up with the following suggestions:

I think you should get rid of Evolving Wilds. Modern is far, far too fast for lands that enter the battlefield tapped. Instead run Watery Grave. I was having problems in my playtest of receiving the colours that I wanted to play, which Watery Grave will fix. I would also cut two of your Islands to run a full playset of Watery Grave--making sure you have the colours you need as quickly as possible is critical (particularly if you want by turn 2).

I don't think Ipnu Rivulet is a big enough impact to be worth playing. It's three mana to mill four cards, and puts you down a mana for the rest of the game. Instead, consider Flooded Strand or other Black/Blue fetch lands (Flooded Strand is currently the least expensive, which is why I suggested it in particular). Flooded Strand can be used to fetch Watery Graves, ensuring you have the mana you need by turn 2 (and also mill for a total of 6 with Hedron Crab).

I was not impressed how Blink of an Eye worked. There were a couple instances where it helped remove an enemy creature or protect a Hedron Crab, but I almost always found myself wishing I had another mill card. Same goes for Jace's Phantasm.

I'd probably take out the two above, and mainboard Mind Funeral and Breaking (which I forgot existed in my prior post, but is another 2 mana spell with a large effect).

I mean for Eldrazi Displacer, the dual-painlands, HOU pain lands, and a couple 5 color painlands lands are all untapped colored mana producers that can also produce colorless, if you want.

The ones for this deck are as follows: Adarkar Wastes, Underground River, Caves of Koilos, Shefet Dunes, Ipnu Rivulet, Ifnir Deadlands, Grand Coliseum (not untapped sadly), and Tarnished Citadel

here's the thing you are stuck in between two strategies, that do not work together. Either you commit to milling someone in which case you have have 24 dead cards in your deck. If you want to commit to the Merfolk tribal side of things, then you have 7 dead cards.

If you are committing to mill here are some card suggestions

Then cut all the merfolk and build straight control, you could play around with making it U/W Control/Mill, but either way you need to be playing control with some mill.

Also in standard I would try to play cards like Spell Pierce, Essence Scatter, and Negate more than flat Disallows; don't get me wrong I'd run like 1 or 2, but that's it

I've played your deck for a while and I wanna hear your opinion about some cards addition: Oboro, Palace in the Clouds I've ran out of lands and my crab could have used this. Maybe 1 Memorial to Genius, I lacked of drawing on a lot of games but I don't really wanna take anything out of the main deck. Ipnu Rivulet same for milling, sometimes I didn't draw onto mill cards and this could have been useful with Fraying Sanity, though I think the problem here was the drawing as I said.
