Lol I love Persistent Petitioners! You probably have a lot too much land for a deck with only two drops. I would drop down to maybe 33 or 34. Maybe play the following cards: Dramatic Reversal,Counterspell,Thrumming Stone,Minister of Inquiries, and Jace, Ingenious Mind-Mage.

+1 Good Luck!

Since you're shifting into more of a combo style of deck, I don't think Minister of Inquiries is doing what you need it to anymore. It's an ok blocker, but Dig Through Time will help you much more.

hey, thanks for the suggestions. Shriekhorn is definitely a faster mill spell than Minister of Inquiries, but I see a problem that it isn't a creature, which makes all of my mill spells less likely to make a turn 2 cauldron. I could see offsetting that by replacing Witch's Oven with another creature, but I think there's another way to build this deck.

The way I would look at the mill package for this deck is as a crabvine deck. It has no dredge cards because they don't further your strategy, and you cant utilize them for your game-plan if you just naturally draw them. Instead the deck wants cheap creatures that let you get out a vengevine ass early as turn 2. Similarly, we want a 1 mana mill spell that will also decrease the cost of a cauldron. having said that I'm looking at running Merfolk Secretkeeper because it fills a these slots better than both Shriekhorn and Minister of Inquiries in my opinion.

As for witch's oven, I would agree that it is probably too cute, but I think I would rather replace it with Gilded Goose, which is a creature, makes turn 2 emry possible, and it can help slow down the game.

I think that this deck is probably too awkward to build right, but there are a decent number of self mill options now, so it probably just comes down to testing to find the right one.

What's so great about Ipnu Rivulet? This is a combo deck now, not a traditional mill deck, so the mill option doesn't even matter anymore,and I don't want to pay 1 life each time I want a water mana. I'm even thinking of removing my Minister of Inquiries even though they're good millers and useful blockers and only cost 1 mana, maybe for more room for Agonizing Remorse or a better creature card to use. The most mill I need is for myself when I have "My death is your death" win condition. Tome Scour is my best bet for milling myself or my enemy. When I want to cast Vantress Gargoyle I only have to have 7 cards milled out of the enemy's deck, so it's no big problem to have a small amount of mill. I want to use something like Tome Scour or my Walls and my other millers to give me at least 10 graveyard cards so that I can cast Crypt Incursion and gain at least 30 life! That will give me plenty of time to win even if I don't have a drawing advantage of my combos. Should I use Hover Barrier??? I don't have anything against flying creatures if I were to face them besides my Vantress Gargoyle.

Shriekhorn is a better mill spell than Minister of Inquiries, as it can mill 4 by turn 2, mills the same amount, and discounts Emry. I also suggest playing 4 Stinkweed Imp instead of Witch's Oven; dredging 5 on turn 2 makes the possibility of a turn 2 Cauldron far more realistic.

Also, Thief of Sanity triggers any time it does combat damage, and you get a card from their deck that you can cast. Minister of Inquiries can only mill 6 unless you bounce him or have a way to make more energy.

Ninjew42 I prefer Minister of Inquiriesbecause it has two energy counters, whileThief of Sanity is only triggered once. I'm not looking for hand control. Also, what should I remove so that I can use Fraying Sanity?

Also, Thief of Sanity could work as a replacement for Minister of Inquiries.
