Keening Stone Discussion

Araignee on Sign here, It's the Millman

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.

Is Phyrexian Metamorph necessary in the deck? When Planar Bridge looks cool, will you ever have enough mana to make good use of it?

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.

You could run Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and a Nekusar, the Mindrazer package. The more they draw the more they hurt and the more they discard.

You might check this page for other suggestions

Mind Funeral, Keening Stone, Fleet Swallower, Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker, Mind Grind, Consuming Aberration, Jace's Archivist are your big hitters when it comes to mill.

I would highly recommend including Bloodchief Ascension and Duskmantle Guildmage as win cons.

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.

Keening Stone Sphinx's Tutelage and Jace, Memory Adept are all fairly cheap and will make milling people out fairly easy.

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

Keening Stone can load up a graveyard quickly.

I'd consider adding Eater of the Dead just for its combo with Phenax. If you know a card in your opponents deck, Tunnel Vision can be a strong mill card. Also, Nemesis of Reason and Keening Stone

gorsloth1 on (Phen)X gonna Mill it to you

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
