Jace's Phantasm Discussion

Jace's Phantasm is a must have in an aggro mill deck. Mindcrank also synergizes very well, hitting for 3 (or 5) and milling the respective amount is brutal.

I personally find Jace, Memory Adept better then Jace Beleren for milling, but that's a opinion.

Jace's Phantasm can be a effective and cheap creature in any mill deck, worth considering. Also, Duskmantle Guildmage with Traumatize or the memory adept (if you have the mana) can be gg. You might need more creatures, like Fog Bank to keep you safe, or maybe things like Vapor Snag to keep threats away!

Hope this helps ;)

Although Jace's Phantasm is a nice body against a mill deck that's all he is. He doesn't give you any value.
Same with Nighthowler although he can be a big enough body to finish games.
Best mill card in edh is Mesmeric Orb(It can easily mill more than Traumatize)!
Everytime you untap a land you Mill card sure this affects you but its worth it
Staff of the Mind Magus is a little to weak imo

Blackxp on The Best Mill Deck...(?)

Normal Suggestions:

Glimpse the Unthinkable(Totally understand if not because of the cost)

Visions of Beyond (Almost always going to be relevant)

Sewer Nemesis (Cheaper consuming aberration for non-multiplayer games)

Breaking/Tome Scour/Mind Sculpt(All good mill spells)

Jace, Memory Adept (Either a free 10 mill/turn or some card advantage)

Phenax, God of Deception (Makes your consuming aberration/Sewer Nemesis read, "Double the size of their graveyard" that can be done on their end step so you can save them as a blocker)

Baleful Strix (Mill needs blockers and this is the perfect one, cant die to doom blade, go for the throat, adds 2 devotion, re-draws a card into your hand, blocks fliers, and deathtouch)

Jace's Phantasm (5/5 flier on turn two if you drop this turn 1 and play Glimpse the Unthinkable on turn 2)

These two cards are different:

Lazav, Dimir Mastermind (Allows you to play other people's decks which is kinda fun. Cards like Emrakul, the Aeons Torn technically hit the graveyard so you do get a copy, and then you can Surgical Extraction before their entire graveyard shuffles back in)

Nightveil Specter (Also allows you to play their deck which is kinda fun. It says "play" so you can play lands and cast spells of different colors. It also adds 3 devotion for Phenax and is a flying blocker)

Competitive Suggestions:

Hedron Crab(Ultra efficient 1 drop blocker that adds up over the course of the game. Fetch lands hit twice and you can always make a blue/green mill deck with cards like Scapeshift that will seriously end the game immediately if its not countered. Having 2 out at once is hilarious at times.)

Archive Trap(Not good in casual, but in competitive environments almost every non-mono color deck will have fetch lands and as a result these are a 0 mana mill 13. Have 2 in your opening hand and you can mill 26 cards before the game starts. Ghost Quarter can be used to force a mill, but then again I believe Ghost Quarters says "may")

Hopefully this helps! I got a mill deck that is focused more-so on creatures and not as much on direct mill effects. I kinda find the direct route boring since there is no player interaction and you might as well be playing burn (counting to 20 is faster than 60 haha). There is also combo mill and plenty of ways to do that. Painter's Servant and Grindstone are the classics but you can find a million other ways to do it too.

+1 from me. I immidiately fell in love with that deck. Let me name some cards, i don't know if they all fit here but give them a try: Breaking, Glimpse the Unthinkable, Jace's Phantasm, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, Thought Scour, Nightveil Specter

Thank you for the suggestions Gideon17! Unfortunately, I think Guard Gomazoa is a bit high of a CMC for a 2/3 defender for me. I am looking to replace Jace's Phantasm though if you know of any low CMC cards that could replace it.

This is wonderful. Like, glorious.

Sensei's Divining Top, Jace's Phantasm, and Xantid Swarm should all hop on board. :)
