TRamage on Mill and Drill (SUPER BUDGET)

15 hours ago

Slip Through Space is certainly a useful card, ShaharRyu, but I chose to include Aqueous Form because it was an enchantment. This means that it can be cast on turn one, and its effect lasts indefinitely; Slip Through Space's effect would only last one turn. Because of this, if you wanted to deal damage with an unlockable creature, you would have to have four mana available, and Mindcrank and Duskmantle Guildmage already on the battlefield. It would certainly work, but I prefer having a continuously unlockable creature from turn one, so that I don't have to worry about paying the mana later.

Yes, WBG, Duskmantle Guildmage's first ability is an infinite damage/mill combo with Mindcrank. To get it going, all you have to do is pay the three mana to activate Duskmantle Guildmage's first ability and deal damage to your opponent. This triggers Mindcrank's effect, and this discard triggers Duskmantle Guildmage's first ability again, and so on.

I did consider Artful Dodge, but in the end decided that it would be more consistent to have the continuous effect of an enchantment, hence Aqueous Form. :)

How does Duskmantle Guildmage's first ability work? Is that an infinite combo with Mindcrank??????

Infinite Combo alt. Wincon: Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank

If I can activate Bloodchief Ascension, it can be an infinite loop with Mindcrank as well. So I should put Mind Grind maybe as part of a sideboard to put in before a multiplayer game. Thanks

Hey fellow Miller,

I just built a multiplayer mass-mill deck you can check it out here for inspiration:

Brain Feast

I went slightly into the Zombie Triabl Theme since it gives me another wincon, but there are nice combs in there, too!

If you want to go infinite go for: Mindcrank + Bloodchief Ascension / Duskmantle Guildmage - For Tutor Dimir has a cool effect in store called "Transmute" - for example Muddle the Mixture, Perplex and Clutch of the Undercity

Other cool Mass-Mill effects are Blade of Selves + Nemesis of Reason, Dread Summons, Dreamborn Muse, Forced Fruition and of course Whispering Madness which can cipher onto another creature!

I recommend always sideboarding Blade of Selves in commander.

If you are looking for some more vampiric flavor add Bloodchief Ascension which can go easily infinite with Mindcrank.
