What's so great about Ipnu Rivulet? This is a combo deck now, not a traditional mill deck, so the mill option doesn't even matter anymore,and I don't want to pay 1 life each time I want a water mana. I'm even thinking of removing my Minister of Inquiries even though they're good millers and useful blockers and only cost 1 mana, maybe for more room for Agonizing Remorse or a better creature card to use. The most mill I need is for myself when I have "My death is your death" win condition. Tome Scour is my best bet for milling myself or my enemy. When I want to cast Vantress Gargoyle I only have to have 7 cards milled out of the enemy's deck, so it's no big problem to have a small amount of mill. I want to use something like Tome Scour or my Walls and my other millers to give me at least 10 graveyard cards so that I can cast Crypt Incursion and gain at least 30 life! That will give me plenty of time to win even if I don't have a drawing advantage of my combos. Should I use Hover Barrier??? I don't have anything against flying creatures if I were to face them besides my Vantress Gargoyle.

That is probably wise. I don't think they were doing a lot for you. Drowned Secrets might with the incision of Opt. This is turning far more into a combo deck with the one-two punch of Fraying Sanity + Traumatize . You might drop one Opt and one Crypt Incursion for two Dig Through Time. That could help you find your wincons even faster.

Also, I know that I said this above, but Ipnu Rivulet is a great card here. Drop a couple of islands for a few. There is relatively little downside.

I have a few main issues. First, your shields are always down. You have zero interaction. If you do the math, milling an opponent doesn't make them less likely to find their good card. Yes, you have a chance to mill them away, but if you don't, they are more likely to find them. These cancel each other out. In lieu of counter-magic, attacking their hand is our next best option. I'm guessing this a budget build. Even so, there are a lot of great hand destruction spells that aren't pricy. Both Thought Erasure and Agonizing Remorse are great.

Next, Traumatize is an expensive spell. You might try Startled Awake  Flip in its stead. Realistically, that should be close to half their deck by the time it gets to turn 5.

Also, you have no card advantage in what is, partly, a combo deck. You don't have Opt, Omen of the Sea, nor Dig Through Time. At least one of those would help a lot. If you run more spells, Dig would make a great inclusion. You can Tome Scour yourself to Dig to find your finisher.

I also don't understand why Inverter of Truth is in here. Inverter is very much a build-around card, and I don't see how it's helping here.

Lastly, Ipnu Rivulet is a solid mill card that doesn't take up a slot because it's a land.

ScryLord that could work but I dont think it would be effective without Hedron Crab . Now with Crucible of Worlds and cards that allow you to play extra lands a turn you could possibly mill 28 a turn.

With Hedron Crab Fraying Sanity Crucible of Worlds and Dryad of the Ilysian Grove in play you could drop Ipnu Rivulet . Mill 3 from crab sac rivulet for 4 mill replay rivulet and sac for another 7. That will be 14. Then fraying sanity bumps that up to 28.

Perhaps a couple copies of Ipnu Rivulet for additional mill?

Kaneka, I actually had never seen Eater of the Dead , I like it and will mull over adding it.

I rarely pop Ipnu Rivulet , but it is an enabler of the Duskmantle Combo.

I suppose Surgical Extraction and Extirpate should also be added for similar effect to Extract .

Hello antacidbrn, is there a reason not to include Eater of the Dead in a Phenax, God of Deception deck ?

How often do you use Ipnu Rivulet ?

I also like to Extract those pesky Eldrazi titans or Blightsteel Colossus from my opponents' decks, what do you think of the card ?

Thanks for your time if you answer all this ^__^
