Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker Discussion
1 day ago
Thanks for the comment Dumgoldfish124!
Actually, at the start, I used to run Szadek, Lord of Secrets. His only problem is that he has to go through and hit, something that this deck can do really poorly, since I have zero evasion. Thus he got cut. Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker has the same problem, but he mills for much more and has a lower CMC.
Glimpse the Unthinkable is really strong, though it's not as strong as Mind Funeral, which dries out lands from our opponents (and everything in between). The problem with these spells is that are one time use, that's why I'd try to keep only the strongest, relatively speaking.

Good luck with your deck, mill is hard to pull off!

Right! That makes much more sense! Anyway, I'll keep an eye on the deck, Esper vampires definitely looks like an interesting concept. And so far, the list looks cool, so I'll check for when the list is finished! :D
Also, I was thinking that Mill Vampires could be pretty spicy. Like, having a heavy control shell, and some stuff like Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker to close the game, or Bloodline Keeper Flip that can close a game pretty fast! I mean, maybe that's a different deck, but Vampires with blue is something quite unexplored, I would say, so...
Anyway, have fun brewing! :D

When C17 came out, the first thing I did was try to rebuild the Vampiric Bloodlust deck to make exponential copies of Edgar Markov attacking each turn for the explosive +1/+1 counters. It required Blade of Selves, Mirror Gallery, Strionic Resonator, Anointed Procession, AND Sundial of the Infinite... talk about Magic Christmasland. I nearly fell off my chair with excitement when Helm of the Host was spoiled. I preordered 10 copies, put one in Edgar and one in Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker, and I've been looking for things to do with the other 8.
This is the first deck I literally just clicked & bought the whole list. So excited to test it out this weekend. I happen to have a Stoneforge Mystic and an Avacyn, Angel of Hope sitting around I'm going to toss in as well as a Curator's Ward. Didn't think of Biovisionary, but I'll probably mix one of those in later.

I personally am a cheap ass, so my most expensive deck is either my Mina and Denn, Wildborn extreme rampdeck (Knock Knock Knock It's The Twins) or my Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker mill-walker deck (Mirko Vosk and his Friends present...). One was the remnants of an animar deck I built years ago and built up incredibly much and the other was a deck I built from scratch.

I was watching one of The Professor's videos going over card advantage, and in it he expresses that (I forget which card exactly so I'll have a stand-in) cards like Mind Sculpt essentially pay to discard a card from your hand.
His point is that there are generally better ways to use that . You don't affect the boardstate in a meaningful way, you don't disrupt their hand or counter their spells, and you don't advance your boardstate or your hand.
You tap two of your lands to discard a card. Period.
But I don't see it that way. You just removed seven cards from their library. You potentially got rid of very useful cards. In the case of things like Destroy the Evidence, they mill until four lands are in their graveyard. Whether they topdeck all four lands in a row, or they are running just an 18-land deck and they throw just as many cards away simply depends. Regardless, four lands is a huge blow to anybody's game.
So my question is very straightforward: Why don't we see more mill?
With combos like Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank, or Fraying Sanity + Glimpse the Unthinkable, or playsets of Destroy the Evidence + Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker (Both milling until four lands), I don't understand why we don't see more of Mill out there?
And before you state the "obvious" that there's no good protection, there's plenty. Nemesis of Reason, Gifted Aetherborn, Vampire Nighthawk, Wall of Frost, Monastery Flock, and they all do really well with Phenax, God of Deception.
So what are your guy's thoughts? Why isn't Mill more commonly played, or at the very least used as a sub-strategy when decks can allow for it?
