robrone9 on Mill: How to Make your Friends Hate You

OK! Looking pretty good man!

I love Phenax as a plan B. I think you have a great start here.

For a budget deck, you most likely can't race so just gum up the ground, and let them Mill themselves by taking turns as much as possible.

Try to get a Mesmeric Orb. I realize it is 10 bucks each but it really is amazing. It is the most consistent Mill spell, works against everything, and it will turn on delerium fast. This in turn makes Manic Scribe a very good card, so play 4. Murmuring Phantasm is a cheap wall that works well with Phenax as well. Steel Wall (or any artifact creature) will also help your delerium -- but Steel Wall is great as it comes down turn 1 and has good defense, which works well with Phenax. Architects of Will could also be used as 1cmc draw a card to get 2 types into the graveyard for delirium as well, but you might not need it. If you can't get delerium often enough, give the Architects a try.

I realize fetch lands are expensive, but they are really good cards to start with it you decide to get more invested in the format, and they help turn on delirium too. Even a few Evolving Wilds can make a difference in the meantime.

Again, I can't stress enough how good Manic Scribe with delerium is. Build your deck to get delirium.

After that, try to cut down on counters and rely on big defensive creature and Crypt Incursion to keep you in the game until you win.

Traumatize is worse than Mind Funeral. By the time you can cast it the average deck won't be that large anymore. Get 4x Mind Funeral and don't look back. Don't play Mind Grind it is just too expensive in mana cost. Don't play those.

Finally, even if you can't afford anything else, try playing the Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank combo. It is an infinite Mill combo that will win the game in the spot most of the time.

For what it's worth, Leyline of Sanctity doesn't stop Guttersnipe from hitting you. You gain hexproof, but Guttersnipe doesn't target.

I used to play Mind Grind in my sideboard of control when everybody started playing Witchbane Orb in Standard. It's the same loophole.

I'd recommend against a full set of Mind Grind in favor of Sphinx's Tutelage

Really cool deck, one suggestion I have is Mind Grind it hits all your opponents wich can get a ton of big creatures in the graveyard for Lazav. Hope this helps +1

I used to run Psychic Spiral but have decided that it isn't worth its mana cost in a typical mill deck. I would replace it with Consuming Aberration so that you have a big blocker. Telemin Performance usually won't be worth its mana cost either so I would consider something like Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker or Mind Grind. You should find a way to fit in Jace's Phantasm as well, maybe replace it for Horrifying Revelation. Fetch lands are nice, I know you said you are on a budget but even some Evolving Wilds can help you out. In conclusion I think that a lot of these cards are great and that this deck has the potential to go a long way.

The latter. You don't lose for having no cards left in your library. You lose from having to draw from an empty library. That's not what Mind Grind makes you do, though.

Let's say I'm playing against a mill deck, and my opponent plays Mind Grind. For the sake of this scenario, I have no remaining land cards in my library, but my library does contain Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. Would I lose due to not being able to reveal enough cards, or would Mind Grind finish resolving after my last card is revealed, sending all cards to the graveyard and triggering Emrakul, the Aeons Torn's final ability?

So, this is your mill list? Pretty sweet! I'm interested in your use of Nightveil Specter + some other things. I feel a use of 4 Mind Grind/Mind Funeral, and 4 Thought Scour is needed. Traumatize is also a must here.

Check our my casual list:
