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

Nice deck! I'd opt for Cosi's Trickster over Jace's Phantasm , but still a very nice list.

Hey, really well made Commander deck, but it's only 94 cards :)

Thalakos Seer is quite good with Ninjutsu, getting value with Yuriko. Ninja of the Deep Hours , Higure, the Still Wind and Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni are good Ninjas, worth playing with Yuriko. Higure is great with Arcane Adaptation because then it can tutor for any creature in your library since all creatures are considered Ninjas.

All the low mana cost unblockable creatures and flying creatures are good to get a fast Yuriko onto the battlefield. Unblockable: Slither Blade , Triton Shorestalker , Mist-Cloaked Herald , Gudul Lurker , Dimir Infiltrator , Tormented Soul . Flying: Mausoleum Wanderer , Pteramander , Jace's Phantasm . Thada Adel, Acquisitor has a good ability for multiplayer Commander since most opponents decks have artifacts. Fabricate or Trinket Mage are worth playing just to tutor for Top. Good luck with your deck.

Hey, nice to hear somebody likes mill in EDH! Not to blatantly advertise my deck, but it's one of my four decks which I constantly update every time a new set comes out and whatever, so take a look at it if you want for some advice: "Library.exe has stopped working".

Start from this viewpoint: in EDH, to win, you'd have to mill from 100 (if you are 1 vs 1) to 300 (4 player match) cards to win. It's a huge lot, so your milling has to be reusable, versatile and impacting.

From my experience, since you don't run graveyard recursion for instants/sorceries and you don't run a spellslinger deck anyways, I'd suggest to cut cards like Archive Trap , Mind Funeral , Shared Trauma : these are one use, so either they're super good (take out an opponent kind of good) or they're inefficient.

Hedron Crab is useless in EDH, for real, don't spend that money, it's not worth it (even though it is in modern). Same goes for Jace's Phantasm / Lord of the Void / Oona, Queen of the Fae , which for different reasons don't provide enough for their mana investment. Yeah, 1 mana 5/5 flyer, and now? Mill 5?

Not to mention, you will never ever successfully cast Enter the Infinite : if you really just want to combo out, even a Diabolic Tutor would be a better choice. 12 mana is hardly achievable without mana ramp.

I've noticed a general lack of card draw and this is really dangerous. Consider tweaking this.

From what it seems, I'd say you trusted edhrec.com too much, and again I'd invite you to take a look at my deck above. I play in 4 players multiplayer matches and trust me, there are many other useful cards you didn't consider and many others which are not worth including. Take your time, and once you're ready, tell me and I'll come back to check your changes!

a neat way to "kill" a big threat is with Gomazoa so you can probably just mill it away... Grafdigger's Cage is pretty good gravyard hate for opponents who want to work out of their graveyards and wont depower Jace's Phantasm / Wight of Precinct Six .

Thank you!, my reasoning behind the Compelling Argument is that it can be used both like a card draw via cycling or to boost the Jace's Phantasm with the milling effect.

Mission Brief Trap - I've taken my mill obsession probably a bit too far, but you'll find alot of interaction and tricks there

Good start. To pump your fliers use Favorable Winds . I would replace Curiosity for Curious Obsession if your budget permits. And maybe Jace's Phantasm as a cheap solution for graveyard decks. Good luck!
