I would cut it down to 38-40 lands.

Add a Liliana Vess in if you have one.

Cut Decimator Web, Keening Stone, Grave Betrayal, Mind Grind, Rise from the Grave, Fate Unraveler.Cut 4 lands, Radiant Fountain and 3 others.

Rise from the Grave ==> Extract from Darkness

In place of the 4 lands add in ==> Mana Vault, Dimir Signet, Worn Powerstone, Coalition RelicThe other cards I suggested to cut I would replace with bigger creatures that work well attacking but also can turn sideways to mill. But one slot I would also recommend are Rise of the Dark Realms

I'd switch Mind Grind for Mind Funeral but otherwise it looks good to me

@syncronym: Hey man that's awesome thanks for the help (: I appreciate it a lot. And I actually did have Mind Funeral in there before until I noticed something. Mind Funeral says "Target Opponent", while Mind Grind says "Each Opponent", so that's why I have that instead.

This time it was on turn 12, you almost had my with Primordial Hydra but I drew into my Consuming Aberration when i had already done 2 Mind Grind's on you that milled 18 cards together. I also had Siren of the Silent Song since turn 3 forcing discard/mill. Win condition takes a while to setup, maybe adding some removal? End Hostilities? Day of Judgment? Retaliate? Wrath of God?

Playtest against your deck without the sideboard: Turn 8 i had Bloodsoaked Champion Consuming Aberration Altar of the Brood Duskmantle Guildmage and 6 mana. You played Avacyn, Angel of Hope that you searched with Time of Need the turn before with your 8 mana, then had no more plays, you had your Phyrexian Unlife on the field so i couldnt kill you. You ended your turn and i drew a Mind Grind, I cast it for 6 mana, Consuming Aberration's ability proc'd and you milled 1 land. Then you milled the rest of your library because you did not have 4 lands left. The Platinum Angel was in the last 17 cards of your library. Turn 9 milled out woot!

So all game i was afraid you would draw the angel and make it impossible for me to win, so a way to search for it would be really valuable, otherwise you're just hoping for it to be drawn. Maybe increase the number of them platinum angels?

Hi there, I commented on your American infinite mill deck. That one was neat! This one is neat too, it's got a strong control shell with a slow mill center.. It just feels a little light on the actual milling.

Mind Grind is an interesting card but from my experience Mind Funeral is the superior version.

I used to run Traumatize but... Sigh.. I dunno, it's just not as powerful as I thought it would be.

They start with 60 cards, draw seven and by turn 5 they've drawn 12 cards minimum. If you've hit them with one Breaking and two Tome Scour... Minimum... Then by turn 5 they'll have 30 cards left in their deck. Which means Traumatize only kills 15 cards.. Jace, Memory Adept, as you know, is a more useful card that crushes souls on every turn.

So I wonder if those Traumatize wouldn't be better served as cheaper, more powerful mill spells? If you really do love Traumatize though, then you'll be needing to at least consider Haunting Echoes..

Hedron Crab would get some decent mill in, a single crab can kill 12 cards by turn 5. Plus, with your control shell, you'll be able to mill even when you don't have the mana to play actual mill spells.

If that interests you, I recommend Mesmeric Orb.. It looks double edged, I know.. But you'll win because your deck is designed to make them run out of cards first.

Breaking / Entering is an amazing card but if you've got the cash, you can't go wrong with Glimpse the Unthinkable

And last thing, I promise.. By turn five your hand gets a little thin, my personal favorite solution to this problem is Visions of Beyond but another good choice is Thought Scour.

I am a huge fan of mill decks so please drop by and check out my stuff! I recommend Arkham to start.
