Mind Funeral Discussion
1 day ago
At this point i am wondering if i should focus on card draw mechanics to find what i want or cards like Mind Grind or Mind Funeral with having access to Megrim and some of the magus - Magus of the Jar & Magus of the Wheel

Thanks for stopping by, iNinjy!
As for the cards, here are my thoughts:
Mind Funeral was previously in the deck, but has been cut in favour of other more impacting effects. Still in the sideboard. The only problem it has it's that it targets a single player, so it's less impacting than what I would like it to.
Altar of Dementia is very powerful, but is ought to be my finishing move, as the X/X creature that I sacrifice to it is no more available for extra milling, so I guess I won't put it in yet.
Glimpse and Mind Sculpt are one player focused, and since I play in 4-6 players games, the impact they have on the game is negligible, thus they were not included (for similar reasons as the removal of Mind Funeral from Mainboard).
Patient Rebuilding was previously in the deck, but has been cut for straight out being an inefficient mana investment. At 5 mana, this card competes with casting Phenax or Consuming Aberration , and it's not nearly as useful. Not only that, but I have to wait my next turn for the effect to trigger, it targets only one person (for a negligible amount of cards) and the amount of cards I get to draw could as well be zero. Since it was meant to be one of the deck's drawing engines, I substituted it months ago with Recurring Insight , as it can draw more and more quickly.

For some more mill options, there’s Altar of Dementia , Mind Funeral (very similar to Mind Grind), Glimpse the Unthinkable , Mind Sculpt , and Patient Rebuilding (which can also benefit you with card draw)

I love mill, I love people playing mill. I went overboard on my own mill deck -Mission Brief Trap. but there are a ton of ways to play Mill.
This appears to be a first deck/budget deck, which means that while Flooremoji's suggestions are very powerful, they're likely not the next step for this deck. You already have Glimpse the Unthinkable , which is a powerhouse but probably want a selection of higher powered budget options. Below is a good selection of the most efficient mill cards that won't break the bank and will allow you to customize the deck to your personal play-style, whether that is control or it is card-burn. You're already using some of these, but any of these would be more efficient than Compelling Argument , Mind Sculpt , Drowned Secrets and Psychic Corrosion .
(Please not that despite what is mentioned above, that crab is not the only mill creature to see some competitive success.)
Best budget mill cards:
The problem with Jace, Memory Adept , Lilliana Vess, Fleet Swallower , Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker , Szadek, Lord of Secrets and The Haunt of Hightower is their casting cost. You need to not be tapped out during your opponents turn anytime on or after turn 4. You want to have Instant speed milling, creature removal available. All these cards require you to go shields down likely without immediately winning the game (in fact, it is impossible for Fleet Swallower to win you the game). This applies to your 4 drop creatures as well, but they, at least, are more likely to be able to be cast in later turns without tapping out.
Your remaining card slots should use your favorite removal spells mixed with card draw and spells to keep you alive.

DrkNinja Mana Severance was most likely suggested for Urza, but have you guys ever thought about Goblin Charbelcher . This combo lets you kill anyone instantly and also reorder your library as you choose. I don't play Severance though because of cards like Mind Funeral in my playgroup.

I may have been building versions of mill for a while. alot of that stuff I got back when it was in Standard or through trades years ago. Some of these costs now are ridiculous!
Mind Funeral is a bit too random for my tastes, but Breaking has been on my radar for a bit (and wouldn't break the bank to try). I think right now I'm gonna continue with experimenting with this controlly version having Narset's Reversal , but I'm gonna leave Breaking under consideration.

I think you should add 2 or 3 copies of another mill spell, like Breaking or Mind Funeral . If one surgical extracts or extirpates your orbs, you won't mill that much. At least consider it for the sideboard
