Keening Stone Discussion
3 weeks ago
leibthebabe88: Well, you have some other cards that do mill as well, like: Keening Stone , Traumatize , Mindcrank and Jace, Memory Adept . I would probably only keep Jace from these, because he also provides constant card draw. The Altar of the Brood seems to work with you blinking the Petitioners.

Flying-Turtle The first card I would suggest would be Waste Not it only 2 CMC and if you move Jace's Archivist into the main deck along with some other wheel effects like Dark Deal, Windfall, Whispering Madness, and other cards of the sort it can really add tremendous amounts of value to what you already want to be doing in the deck. And once again I would move both Keening Stone and Traumatize into the main list because they work together as 1 turn mill combo on a single person (if you have the mana). As for some other low cost cards I am surprised you don't have Animate Dead anywhere on the list because it can steal a creature from any graveyard. I would even count Avatar of Woe because the discount is easy to get and removal is always nice to have.

Fair warning, mill in edh will make you a target. If we're going for it anyway....
First up, I'd add a Sol Ring. Your tribe seems to be a mixture of octopi, krakens, and leviathans. All of which have high cmcs. Fairly certain you need the ramp.
Bloodchief Ascension gives you an infinite combo with mindcrank.
Also, not sure if your tribal rule allows for this or not, but if it is ocean dweller tribal then maybe a Hedron Crab?

phenax is a really good mill commander, my recommendations would be Riddlekeeper he can disincentives attackers coming at you, Wall of Frost also deters attacks. I have found Sphinx's Tutelage dose a lot of work in my mill deck, and a good finisher I like is Keening Stone if you can build up the mana you can drop it on to the field and knock out an opponent before they know what hit them. Tree of Perdition is a good shout too

i run a similar list and find that just big butts with no real abilities just don't make the cut. I'd recommend droping Hover Barrier for the incredibly powerful Eater of the Dead, which pretty much goes infinite with Phenax as long as there's a few creatures in each players graveyard. I'd also drop Staff of the Mind Magus and Tome Scour for Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots to get combos going faster, I've often found I wont even play out my combo pieces without at least one of these two cards available to me. I also like the Traumatize with either Fraying Sanity or Keening Stone combo for the mill out, might be worth fitting those cards in as well. overall a really fun deck to pilot especially 1v1, if you can make it work it's an incredibly satisfying win
