Icbrgr on The best cards not worth ...

Skaab Ruinator does require a lot of dedication with running heavy creatures and the typical blue supporting spells like Serum Visions/Mana Leak/Disperse just dont pan out/not worth it from my experience. Self mill creatures and spells like Jace's Archivist/Mesmeric Orb basically just give you far more draw/casting fuel to overcome any spot removal and bounce. It is definitely vulnerable to exile and graveyard hate.... Alternative win conditions are a must with things like Laboratory Maniac and Mindshrieker and Skaab Goliath.

It's far from being broken/perfect however I seldom see people fully committed to a suicide mill deck.

I think I'm going to try running an alternate win condition to make the deck run more smoothly. Mindshrieker probably. I have a quest for ula's temple deck that's got a similar play style of stacking the deck and he's one of my win conditions in there. I'll probably run Spellskite in my sideboard since it is quite fragile. I'm on the ropes about the Halimar Depths I'll try it out though. Another turn 1 stacking ability would be nice. I'm just worried it coming it tapped might end up killing me since sometimes I have to dig for the land I need to play out my combo.

Maybe some angels. I like Baneslayer Angel and Akroma, Angel of Wrath. Ik you said only fliers, but Magus of the Moat is a card made for a fliers deck like this one. Mindshrieker can be great if you are getting hits in, and if you want to counter enemy fliers, I like Archetype of Imagination. Mist Raven, Skymark Roc and Spire Patrol are all creatures that I consider.

Thanks for your feedback! Honestly, Draining Whelk is one of the reasons I made this deck so I wouldn't get rid of it for now. I'll do some tests, anyway here's the first changes:

-2 Slith Ascendant

-2 Countermand

+3 Mana Leak

+1 Favorable Winds

and maybe:

-2 Slith Ascendant

+2 Judge's Familiar or Spiketail Hatchling

I would replace Mindshrieker too, but then I think I'd need some other sort of mana sink. I came up with Sacred Mesa but I'm not sure. What do you think?

Countermand is pretty bad in this deck, a 4 mana counterspell that maybe turns on Jace's Phantasm probably isn't worth it. I see what you're doing with Draining Whelk, but you should probably just curve out at 5 with your Godheads and play more aggressive creatures.

Here's what I would do:

-2 Countermand

-2 Draining Whelk

-2 Mindshrieker

-4 Slith Ascendant

+4 Faerie Miscreant

+2 Favorable Winds

+4 Some 2-mana counterspell, Mana Leak and Remand are pretty good.

Hm i'm not sure Phenax, God of Deception works that well in your deck. For him to be effective you will need more creatures with high toughness that you can tap for mill. For example Jace's Phantasm, Consuming Aberration or even Mindshrieker. The first two of those will not work with well with Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver because he will weaken them or even kill them when exiling the whole graveyard.

Hey there! Sweet deck!

I would recommend running at least some form of removal, maybe Oust, Condemn, or Path to Exile (or Swords to Plowshares if you don't care about Modern legality). On a separate note, Curator of Mysteries is a great flier (even if you don't have any cycling cards), as is Conundrum Sphinx, which obviously gets better if you play Serum Visions, which coincidentally is another card I'd highly recommend for your deck. As for removals, I'd take out Angel's Mercy, Mindshrieker, Roc Egg, Aven Fleetwing, and possibly Wild Griffin as well.

In any case, I hope this helps! Have fun!
