I'd replace both Cerulean Wisps and Twisted Image with Thought Scour since it'll help with the milling as well as act as the cantrip you want. Also, I think the deck would be better if you focused on the milling aspect and cut out the proliferate. It looks like you've got a good start on a proliferate deck but I don't think this should be it. For replacements I'd look at consuming abberation and Induce Paranoia . Also, I think both Warden of Evos Isle and War-Wing Siren could be replaced. For those I'd suggest Jace's Phantasm and Balustrade Spy . Just my 2 cents! Good luck with whatever you decide to do though!
I think that Thought Scour totally outclasses Pilfered Plans in every way. Scour is an instant and costs 2 less, with the only downside being you draw 1 less card. I don't know how much you've playtested this deck, but being able to do more on turn 1 helps out a lot. I'd also think about cutting 1-2 lands for more aggro hate, which imo are the toughest matchups. Cutting 2 lands for 2 Ensnaring Bridge would help since you're never going to attack with creatures yourself it looks like (although I personally love dropping Jace's Phantasm to dissuade my opponents from attacking). Since the Oboro land is legendary and you have more higher-cost cards than some builds I've seen, I suggest cutting 2 of them for 2 Shelldock Isle s, which have helped me close out many a game. Also consider finding room for 1-2 Crypt Incursion somewhere in your 75, as I've gained 45+ life from it in matches before and the opponent couldn't come back after that big of a life swing. If you'd like to see my competitive mill deck, here it is- Greatest Modern Milling Machine Ever Made!
Cutting out all of the non-standard cards would be a good first step. Standard is currently all cards in Ravnica Block, M14, Theros Block, and M15, with Ravnica and M14 Rotating out in September as we get the new block. This knocks out:
Trepanation Blade , Grafdigger's Cage , Keening Stone , Chalice of the Void , Counterspell , Thoughtscour, Mind Funeral , Memory Sluice , Jace's Phantasm , Avatar of Woe , Hedron Crab and Drowned Catacomb .
That cuts out 37 cards bringing you down to 54 giving you about 6 cards to add, 4 of which should be lands, giving you 2 really to add.
Hello! Been a long time since last play.
i'm thinking of building a standard deck with cards i currently have :
Planeswalker: 2xJace, Memory Adept
Total 91 cards. I would like to build my deck with 60ish cards if possible, which cards should i add/throw? As you can see, the theme about this deck is about milling and using creatures to synergize with milling theme..
Any feedback or suggestions will be very well appreciated. Thanks!
also, why have Jace's Phantasm when the deck has no mill to get to the 10 cards? In my experience, these kind of deck win rather quickly, usually before your opponent gets 10 card in his/her graveyard... so you basically would get a 1-drop flying 1/1 more often than not.... so I would drop it.... as to what to add in it's place, I would go 2x Illusory Angel and 1x Phantasmal Bear , but that is just me.
Have you thought about splashing some blue and throwing in Hidden Strings plus something like Jace's Phantasm ? This lets you proc any of their abilities twice per attack and there are a few nice blue heroic cards.
That is the reason I have excluded both the Jace's Phantasm and Jace's Mindseeker , as not only do I not support the mill subtheme required, I win without needed them. Just a thought since you did go for a mill sub-theme...
