Whenever a permanent becomes untapped, that permanent's controller puts the top card of his or her library into his or her graveyard.
Mesmeric Orb Discussion

Hey, welcome to TappedOut!
I dont know if milling is that strong in commander because everyone has 99 Cards, but here are some thoughts that came to my mind:
I think Mesmeric Orb could be a strong mill-card (i have one and would trade it).
Maybe more dual-lands, for example Underground River

frogkill45 I agree with Mission Briefing being too conditional and especially bad when playing Mesmeric Orb . I would not play it. I would love to play Oboro, Palace in the Clouds , but it'd be my 25th land because the other ones are too important. And a 25-land deck is probably a totally different deck, and surely a bad mill deck.

Good suggestions Pikobyte!
was in the first draft of the deck, and will likely make it back in once I pick up

Mesmeric Orb is a good suggestion, though the rate at which I'm already dumping cards in my graveyard does make it seem a little redundant. Perhaps in lieu of Codex Shredder ?
The only one I don't really think I'd consider would be Jace. I don't really think it's that much better than Laboratory Maniac , and it doesn't really provide enough versatility to consider cutting another Planeswalker for it. On top of being more difficult to cast as well, I simply think this card doesn't fit this deck (though I do use it in my Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind EDH deck).

I'm also not really convinced by Shelldock Isle here. You aren't running much that's high-CMC enough for it to matter, and the ETB tapped is painful (not to mention that you want maximum snow lands for your second set of crabs).

That depends on your meta. In my meta Muldrotha tends to draw a lot of attention and is a very likely removal-target. So playing her with no cards in graveyard means you only got a 6/6 beatstick without any other use. That’s not worth risking a removal and paying the commander tax imho. I got some strong ramp too and can play her often turn 3-4, but I don’t always do that even if I can because of the reason above. If I got an early Hedron Crab or Mesmeric Orb or any other selfmill i would do that early. Otherwise I wait for some of my creatures to die and cast her later unless I got a Command Beacon out and don’t care about commander tax. So ramp is fine but I think your deck might work better with a bit less ramp and a bit more selfmill to get more use out of Muldrothas ability. Ashiok, Dream Render is another good and cheap card for that. Mills you 4 every turn, removes opponents graveyards and shuts down opponents tutors and fetchlands. That card is really great.

Yeah Mill cards are pretty expensive, especially for Tier 1/1.5 decks. And it's an archetype that depends a lot on fetchlands, which I try to avoid because of the bankruptcy it brings lol. Even so, it's pretty fun to play even with less competitive decks.
