Nemesis of Reason Discussion

Intruder Alarm lets you untap and retap a lot, even on your opponents turn (add in Cloud of Faeries and Deadeye Navigator to go infinite)

Nemesis of Reason is also a very strong mill card

Consuming Aberration will mill for more and more the longer it is out.

Might I suggest Nemesis of Reason and Traumatize? Both are a 5 CMC, but nemesis is beefy and doesn't even need to hit the defending player for its effect to take and Traumatize is named appropriately. It hurts when it's used against you.

Traumatize to get a bunch of toys to play with right away. Fleet Swallower and Nemesis of Reason for the same reason.

Another of my decks that got hit hard by the unproxyfest of late 2017, this deck now has a variety of "aquire cards" as listed below (other cards put into their places as listed above):

Akroma's Memorial, Archive Trap, Eldrazi Conscription, Forced Fruition, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Jace Beleren, Lightning Greaves, Leyline of the Void, Mind Funeral, Nemesis of Reason, Rise of the Dark Realms, Startled Awake  Flip, The Scarab God

Some suggestions

Nemesis of Reason- A body that synergies with mill well

Guiltfeeder- This little guy is a house and will close out games fast, milling 99 is hard, 40 damage is easier

Extract from Darkness- This one is easy, It only mills 2 cards but can steal a creature

Bribery- Instead of stealing a creature from the graveyard, steal it from their deck. Also when it dies, then you can steal it from the graveyard

Dreamborn Muse- Its a double edged sword I know, but it punishes those decks that like to have lots of cards in hand like mine (Animar)

Some more misc stuff

Bojuka Bog- bad early game, can be devastating late game depending on matchup

Sudden Spoiling- can shutdown combos b/c of split second, can make creatures easier to kill or fogs

Just a quick suggestion, I can go more in depth

Flooremoji, I like Keening Stone because it insta kills with Traumatize. I will also save money by taking out Nemesis of Reason. I realized that as much as Phenax, God of Deception is good, he doesn't fit super well in the deck. By the time he is out, my creatures would rather be attacking than tapping for mill, and I only have one big wall, the others are small. I can also sideboard Crypt Incursion. That is 3 cards to put in. I say another Fraying Sanity, a Vessel of Malignity and a Wight of Precinct Six. Do you think that's a good idea?

I recommend the Nemesis of Reason or the Keening Stone.The Nemesis of Reason is more expensive though.

Well Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker is kind of a threat, but the scarier one would be drumroll

Nemesis of Reason! Big butt so it's nigh-impossible to burn away, mills ten on every attack. Huh... speaking of which...

How about Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger?

Also, as an alt-wincon, maybe more Howling Mine effects? I know you have the one that's two of those, but a couple more never hurt... you. Anvil of Bogardan is awesome.

Propaganda is good for protection.
