Jace, Memory Adept Discussion

je67di876 on Sputter(Mill-Control)Sideboard suggestions wanted

2 days ago

If you are doing mill, there are two MUST CONSIDER cards. The first is Traumatize, and the second is Altar of the Brood. Those cards get really annoying really fast and are perfect for mill. Also, if you REALLY wanted the planeswalker in there, you could add Jace, Memory Adept to the mix. His abilities play with the draw cards/mill thing you have goin' on here.

Hiya! I really like mill decks and I'm just gonna list of a whole bunch of suggestions for you.

Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank

If you name the deck Mind Grind, you have to have Mind Grind in there :P

Consuming Aberration, Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker, Jace's Archivist, Jace, Memory Adept, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, Mind Funeral, Sphinx's Tutelage are all worth thinking about.

I'm not going to suggest any more cards but feel free to look at my deck for ideas!

Sorry, but they have to go, YES... ALL OF THEM!

Hope it helped! :D

I would cut Jace, Memory Adept for something more relavant like Keranos, God of Storms Because he's more useful for your purposes since you're not an all-in mill deck, and definitely Lightning Bolt over Searing Spear because it's one less mana for the same card.

CorruptedPhazon on Twincast Milling Mayhem

QuantumSkies thanks for the comments.The cards you have suggested I have at one point considered or ran and replaced, minus Snapcaster Mage, don't have the dough to pick up a playset to really make use of him. Spelltwine is much too slow at a cost of 6 mana and doesn't help all too well since I need to pick the second card from my opponent's graveyard. By T6 I should be spending mana at that point for Glimpse the Unthinkable along with Twincast where I can be milling anywhere from 20-40 cards in one turn. Or dropping threats like Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker, Consuming Aberration or Jace, Memory Adept. I also found a T1 Tome Scour over a T2 Mind Sculpt more damaging and again, Tome Scour I find more mana efficient. T1 Tome>T2 another Tome followed by Jace's Phantasm, 10 cards milled and you have a 5/5 flyer.

Traumatize while great on paper, is 5 turns if things go your way to play, but with Twincast, Tome Scour and Glimpse the Unthinkable within the first 4 turns which is more probable, I've milled almost half their deck. All the while you are disrupting any potential needed draws for your opponent much faster.

This is also a more aggressive mill deck in sense of I have creature threats where the usual mill deck is very spell heavy and will have to sideboard in creature hate by round 2. You have no idea how bad a Shadowmage Infiltrator equipped with Trepanation Blade can really hurt both your life and library at the same time.

I hope I've given you some insight into my perspective and how I've gone about it according to my local meta.

Hi TyroMaven, thanks for the feedback.

Interesting comment about Privileged Position. I'm aware of the requirement for a spell's colour to match the commander's colour identity, but we thought that in the case of a spell where you can choose which colour to pay with, this spell would count as either or and so would be acceptable. But, I'm happy to be corrected :)

I'm inclined to agree about Jace, Memory Adept and he can go. I've also already swapped out Bonds of Faith and replaced it with Heavy Ballista and I'll probably swap in Benalish Trapper instead of Jace. Some interesting suggestions in your comments to keep in mind; is there anything else in the deck you feel could be swapped out?

Recently this deck got destroyed several games in a row by my goblin deck Goblin Festoon and I need ways to shut down Krenko, Mob Boss. Oppressive Rays is one way and I'll probably add in Arrest too.

Turn8ScornfulEgotist on Nekusar says Draw and Die

It doesn't appear that you took out the Tainted Strike with the rest of the infect cards. You might want to remove that, as it probably won't help on it's own.

In addition, Jace's Archivist is a great wheel effect that you can repeatedly use. I would also run Fevered Visions to punish opponents for drawing extra cards even more, and to give you extra draws. A few good planeswalkers would be Jace, Memory Adept, as he draws cards until hitting your opponents for 20, and Tezzeret the Seeker who can find your Top or mana rocks, then untap them. Propaganda is a great way to keep yourself alive until you combo out.
