Jace, Memory Adept Discussion

Jace, Memory Adept is always a good choice for mill decks and it's relatively cheap (in money, only around 5 bucks) for a planeswalker, i definitely recommend it.

It checks the X at the beginning of each end step, and redefines X to mean "the number of cards in the graveyard this turn."
Frankly, I think you should cut Consuming Aberration, Nemesis of Reason, and Jace, Memory Adept. Mill works best when you move as quickly as possible. All three of these cards cost too much mana for what they give you--by the time you can cast them, the fate of the game has already been decided.
Mind Funeral is fantastic, and can mill for a fairly significant number for just 3 mana.

Just saying this as well, you're probably not going to want just forty basic lands even (20 swamps 20 islands) because you probably won't end up with the mana fixing you want, also make it less than forty lands other than what you already have due to the fact that you're not going to need forty six lands you goof.
So anyways I've told you you should put better lands in... now I should probably give you the options
Just good lands in your colors
A BIT PRICIER: Minamo, School at Water's Edge
Don't make it all nonbasics so you can make sure you've got fetch targets and such.
More good mill for ya, doesn't seem like ye've got enuff on ya mate.
Cheapin' for ya wallet mate:
A bit more harsh on ya bank account:
Again, you'll want the cards to remove things from opponents graveyards because you'll be putting a ton of stuff in there
That's it for today's suggesting, sorry about the shoddy text formatting job, I'm a bit new to this.

Thank you SO much for this guide. I'm looking to get into Modern, playing a play style that I enjoy (even if it isn't the most competitive to start). I had a couple questions for you...
4) What are your thoughts on forcing your opponent to draw to lose during say an Emrakul trigger? For example, Shelldock Isle an Overflowing Insight , playing Careful Consideration, or Cephalid Coliseum?
Thanks again for the time and energy you put into this. I appreciate any and all input!

You seem to have a shell for the deck started with that in mind I am going to assume you are aiming for milling and reanimating opponents good stuff while having a zombie sub theme within your own deck.
Okay lets start with the mana base as you need a solid one to support your commander in any meaningful way. For lands I would add Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth and Cabal Coffers, its pretty darn good. You should probably run at least 10 ramp sources in your deck, so some ideas would be Sol Ring, Thran Dynamo, Gilded Lotus, Everflowing Chalice, Dimir Signet, Dark Ritual, Chromatic Lantern because mana fixing is still useful in two color decks and Worn Powerstone. Also add Expedition Map if you add Urbog and Coffers. Dreamscape Artist is a very solid creature in reanimation as it acts as ramp in colors that don't have it and provides reanimation targets to boot via discard. If you run Urborg you might consider Caged Sun so you can really ramp up.
For milling Mind Grind, Mind Funeral is kind of a must I think and who can forget Consuming Aberration. Sphinx's Tutelage is another solid passive mill. Jace, Memory Adept can be nasty and also serves as a draw source if needed.
Some zombies to consider would be Graveborn Muse and Cryptbreaker providing tribal card draw. Grimgrin, Corpse-Born/Carrion Feeder with Gravecrawler can provide a nasty beat down and act as sacrifice outlets. Havengul Lich, Geth, Lord of the Vault and Coffin Queen (changed to zombie in creature update) add backup reanimation.

Grisly Spectacle could help you mill extremely well. Jace, Memory Adept has a ton of synergy here and could be very useful. I highly recommend these cards because they'll work great in this deck. I have these cards, and I think I'll head over to FNM and give this deck a spin. Also, I'll play against some friends and let you know how it goes. But, could you give me a sideboard to work with before I play? I'm happy to offer suggestions for a sideboard.
