Jace's Phantasm gets +4/+4 as long as an opponent has ten or more cards in his or her graveyard.
Jace's Phantasm Discussion
1 week ago
Gilbobaggins, I think the deck is pretty fast, it can consistently mill out an opponent at turn 5 or 6, it can also mill out at 4 sometimes, Jace's Phantasm and Consuming Aberration incase you draw as either a defense or for attacking fairly early in the game

Pride of the Clouds is good if you're going all-in on flying, but you could also change this to a spirit tribal deck. You're pretty close it already.

Multiplayer mill is almost impossible, and you have A LOT going on here, but there are a few things that can help. I think you'll find Mindcrank will do a lot of milling for you as opponents hit each other. It's a very passive permanent, so for very little mana-cost you get a lot of effect. It's also part of a 3-card infinite mill combo, which I'm sure you can find with a google search if you're interested and not already aware.
Some decks and players hate mill more than others. Having something to shut them down when they get too zealous will be helpful: Haunting Echoes . Along similar lines, Surgical Extraction and/or Extirpate can be very useful in shutting down many aggro threats.
In my humble opinion, the best mill creatures are Hedron Crab and Manic Scribe . Manic Scribe requires a bit of strategy when brewing, though - you really want to make sure you've got as many card types as possible, and even amounts. Both capitalize on the use of fetch-lands - even if it has to be a Terramorphic Expanse. They also like lands with Cycling and sac abilities. I'd say Jace's Phantasm is a solid #3, but it doesn't mill on it's own, so it's kind of 'meh.'
Speaking of lands with sac abilities, I emphatically suggest Buried Ruin and maybe even Bojuka Bog - up to 2x of each. While I'm on lands, if you can swing the bucks, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is pretty great. I think you can cut Padeem, Consul of Innovation just by adding 2x Buried Ruin.
I suggest you cut creatures that draw you cards in favor of group hug spells like Howling Mine , Temple Bell , and Font of Mythos . Opponents think you're helping them, but really you're just nice-milling them. If you add Jace's Erasure or Sphinx's Tutelage , they're even better, still.
Fraying Sanity is pretty good, so good call on a full set.
You should have 24 lands here in a 60 card deck like this.

I think my biggest suggestion is to focus a little more with your deck goal. You have creatures that can beat down with Jace's Phantasm , you have draw-mill with Jace's Erasure + Dictate of Kruphix , then you have the straight mill.
I can suggest a bunch of cards depending on the path you want to take, though I need to know what budget you're looking at per card.

Ok! Sorry I missed you already have Prowler's Helm ! I also totally get the unfavorability of Hot Soup but A) it’d hilarious and B) I’ve personally won games with it. Of course this isn’t meant to say your points still don’t stand cause equip 3 is a lot. I just think most people will underestimate it’s power if they’re not slinging non-combat damage with ease.
A counter-suggestion to Stormtide Leviathan + Part Water ... how about Wonder and Filth + Buried Alive . You don’t necessarily need Buried Alive but it’s an enabler for the other two to automatically work. And I would personally take out Wingcrafter and Jace's Phantasm for them.
All 3 of the “Extra Turn” spells are dope, but in the name of practicality I would probably take out the weaker 1 or 2 for Scroll Rack and Sensei's Divining Top as they fit into the theme of manipulating the top of your library and they will also get you out of trouble a majority of the time.
What do you think?

ChooseWiselySon, Go for the Throat seems like a good card also, I forgot it existed! When its good against decks, it's great. When its bad, board it out for something else. Maybe run non-conditional removal in the board to deal with artifacts. Wierd idea, but Complete Disregard deals with Etched Champion in the affinity matchup, which is when Go for the Throat is bad. It's all up to you though. Great deck!

Love the deck, You could get a lot more out of your Hedron Crab by running fetch lands (if available); triggering that landfall more than once per turn. I know there's a new fetch land coming out in odern horizons that searches basic lands that might be a good budget option. lol Also, Jace's Phantasm and Wight of Precinct Six can get pretty fat in a mill deck if you feel you need more bodies on the field for chump blockers. Phantasm in particular might be a great swap with Wall of Runes
