Manic Scribe Discussion

Have you considered Consuming Aberration as a big beat stick in case you run out of gas? Maybe Conjurer's Closet to bounce ETB effects on cards like Wall of Lost Thoughts , Sepulchral Primordial , or Manic Scribe ?

I'd say creatures are fine as long as they help you mill plan along. Consuming Aberration , Hedron Crab , Nemesis of Reason can all mill reasonably for their cost. I'd say get rid of the birds and the zombie to dedicate more to mill, but creatures help in a back up plan and to board stall to mill them out. Manic Scribe is another mill creature to consider imo. Another suggestion for a utility land would be Nephalia Drownyard .

Well for a deck based on Cruel Ultimatum, I'd suggest a discard theme. Use cards like Megrim or Waste Not to punish discard, along with cards like Gnat Miser and Barbed Shocker as well as _Windfall _ to maximise it. Lastly, because ultimatum isn't a cheap spell maybe Wildfire Eternal or Chandra, Pyromaster to help cheat it out. Note though that the deck should probably have 4x of the cards mentioned, budget alloying...
For Villainous Wealth I'd go for mana acceleration and mill. Green is great at mana acceleration and blue and black do a good job of milling. Use cards like Fertile Ground and Arbor Elf or Voyaging Satyr to give you extra mana along with Breaking / Entering, Tome Scour and Manic Scribe to keep eating away at your opponents deck...
I hope this helps and gives you some ideas.

If u want to play Consuming Aberration you need for sure at least 2 copies of Rite of Consumption if u want an enchantament you have to put in Fraying Sanity that is superior. Ghost Quarter aren't good anymore: now you have to play Field of Ruin, you also have to put in 2 more Archive Trap that is very good with Field of Ruin. Now Glimpse the Unthinkable now cost less because was reprinted in mm17 so you can buy it if u can, because it is very strong,a core card. Instead of Jace's Phantasm you can play Manic Scribe. But if you like the combo with Consuming Aberration keep them. But put out Artful Dodge and put in Rite of Consumption, the problems are removals, aberration can be easily removed, so you need some Counters. Hope my advices are useful :). P.S. I made some changes to my deck, if u want to see them ;)

MrTristan19 Thank you for your reply! I have considered Manic Scribe. I've switched it in and out a few times but not recently. Only few reasons I stayed with Jace's Phantasm was the one Mana and Flying. I may just give that a shot again with a couple of changes to the deck. I also like the idea of using less Fraying Sanitys.

Love the description and the deck, my only questions are: -Have you considered Manic Scribe? It blocks better than phantasm and synergizes well with your mesmeric orb -I've heard that Fraying sanity is best at 3 or 2 since you don't want to see more than 1 copy bc it doesn't do anything by itself
Keep on Millin'!

I think if you are going to draw a lot of cards, you're going to need more mana. I think Kiora's Follower is probably about as good as you can get playing budget Simic. I suggest running 6 or more mana dorks.
A few spells to consider:
