Mind Funeral Discussion
1 day ago
im personally gonna agree with Darth_Savage here, as even if you play a one drop turn one, turn two an orb, and turn 3 an scribe. thats only gonna mill them an extra 3 cards 4 turns into the game, not to mention the the scribe is within range of Lightning Bolt and Fatal Push plus all the white removal the turn it drops. whereas Mind Funeral will mill a guranteed 4 cards at the very very worst. and unless they throw a counter in front of it, they cant stop you and make you have wasted a turn.
im also gonna recommend sideboard one to two copies of Fraying Sanity for the control or midrange match ups that are sure to go longer

Looking to make combo hate you- any one of the many, many black 'search library and remove' cards.
Most majorly successful mill decks I've seen have been esper control looking to trigger a t1 archive trap off of a Path to Exile, if you want to move that direction, but most the rest of it is just surviving that many cards in graveyards. Tormod's Crypt in the side.

I've always viewed Sphinx's Tutelage as a trap, other than in a deck running Howling Mine / Dictate of Kruphix or a deck which uses Burning Inquiry / Reforge the Soul I wouldn't use it. It seems like a decent play, but a lot of the time it will be a less efficient spell than Glimpse the Unthinkable, Mind Funeral, Mesmeric Orb or even Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver because of the non-land clause. Add to this that your build around cards (Teferi's Puzzle Box and Notion Thief) are 4 mana, your deck is going to be slow.
Now that being said, I have seen one reasonable use of Sphinx's Tutelage, which was a turbo fog deck - https://www.mtggoldfish.com/articles/budget-magic-91-35-tix-modern-tutelage-turbo-fog
So maybe a blue/white or blue/green style idea could work. Whatever you do you need to rework the deck so it isn't as dependent on 3 and 4 drops... While this may be a negative comment, I hope it is of some help and I wish you luck brewing your deck.

Darth_Savage Your advices are good, Darkness is very good. Manic Scribe in my opinion is a beautiful card, can active delirium with Mesmeric Orb , and if you are not able to active delirium she can block lots of creatures in early.Mind Funeral is a "high risk" card, of course you can mill 20 cards with one Mind Funeral, but you can also spend 3 mana for milling 5 cards.

SentinelElf2711, no worries, but I'm not sure what you mean by no defence, Peisistratos deck uses 4x Darkness. This is a black fog, which can set your opponent back a turn for one mana and give you the opportunity to mill more, admittedly this isn't that helpful against burn. In terms of a direct suggestion for your deck Manic Scribe is cute, but Mind Funeral is probably more efficient, keep in mind that a fair few modern decks use a lot of fetch lands, then add in the effect of Field of Ruin so you can mill a surprising number of cards before hitting four land.

Very cool commander!
Maybe more of a discard/mill/wheel package with cards like Hedron Crab, Mindcrank, Bloodchief Ascension, Altar of the Brood, Sands of Delirium, Increasing Confusion, Mind Grind, Mind Funeral, Glimpse the Unthinkable, Fraying Sanity, Windfall, Time Spiral, Greel, Mind Raker, Words of Waste, Beacon of Unrest, and Torment of Hailfire ?

If your trying to win by mill, Mind Funeral and Tome Scour both work very well.
If you can afford it Thoughtseize and Surgical Extraction work well, if not you can go with Extirpate and Duress
Hedron Crab is another good creature, and Languish might work as well.
