So, a couple things: 40 lands is too many for this deck, I'd go down to 38 or maybe even 37 because of the new mulligan rule. I'd also work on the balance of mana based on the colors you have in the deck, taking out some Swamps and replacing them with Islands, and maybe trying to find a few more dual lands because you don't really gave too many and having mostly basics will make it easy for you to get color screwed. Maybe a few more artifacts like a Dimir Signet , Sol Ring for obvious reasons, and Fellwar Stone , stuff like that.

It also seems like you're stuck between Faerie tribal and mill. Personally I'd go with mill, because it's probably cheaper. You can take out cards like Final-Sting Faerie , Nectar Faerie , Quickling , Thornwind Faeries , Wasp Lancer , Distant Melody , Bident of Thassa , Violet Pall , and Faerie Tauntings . You could put cards like Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , Fraying Sanity , Jace, Memory Adept , Sire of Stagnation , Hedron Crab (I have one of these that you can use), Lazav, Dimir Mastermind , Notion Thief , and Nemesis of Reason in order to strengthen your mill plan, and if you wanna win with tokens out of nowhere, you can put in Scion of Oona to keep your tokens safe.

I would also put in some more removal, like Murder , Cast Down , Rapid Hybridization , Go for the Throat , Hero's Downfall , or similar cards. I really like the inclusion of cards like Crypt Incursion and Startled Awake  Flip, because those are just really cool cards. This deck has potential, I think you made a really solid first draft.

Shabompistan: Thanks for your encouragement! I actually -do- have the new Ashiok, Dream Render in the deck...I must have forgotten to note the change when I uploaded the deck. I'll have to fix that. As for Nemesis of Reason , I do not currently, but would love to eventually, own one. Thanks for reminding me of it's terribly awesome existence. :-)

This is a very interesting approach to mill. Usually these decks are just stacked with mill spells like Glimpse the Unthinkable and contain few creatures. This takes a more aggro approach. I like it because what it lacks in mill power it makes up in boardstate threats, which are protected by your signature spell.

If you're looking for some good mill creatures, I would suggest Nemesis of Reason . Also the new Ashiok, Dream Render would be a good inclusion into the 58.

I'd say creatures are fine as long as they help you mill plan along. Consuming Aberration , Hedron Crab , Nemesis of Reason can all mill reasonably for their cost. I'd say get rid of the birds and the zombie to dedicate more to mill, but creatures help in a back up plan and to board stall to mill them out. Manic Scribe is another mill creature to consider imo. Another suggestion for a utility land would be Nephalia Drownyard .

Maybe throw a Nemesis of Reason in there as a replacement for Harbor Bandit? It might accelerate your win condition a bit more. Plus you have some recursion to get it back if it does get blocked or removed otherwise.

I'd consider adding Eater of the Dead just for its combo with Phenax. If you know a card in your opponents deck, Tunnel Vision can be a strong mill card. Also, Nemesis of Reason and Keening Stone

Thanks for the reply NV_1980

I've been taking a look at fleet swallower he seems suited to my game plan similar to Nemesis of Reason at first I didn't think about Muldrotha too much because she didn't cast for free but she could help me cast some of those tough instant or sorceries that are hard to recast once they're in the grave. I'm thinking about getting one or both of the reanimate cards it's just finding a slot for them that's tough.

Welcome to Tapped Out!

  • From what I gather is that you're going for a mill intensive B/U(Dimir) deck?
  • How cheap(budget) are we talking about?

Thought Scour | Tome Scour | Horrifying Revelation | Hedron Crab | Fraying Sanity | Drowner Initiate | Dimir Charm | Dream Twist | Compelling Argument | Cathartic Adept | Breaking // Entering | Jace's Erasure | Memory Erosion | Memory Sluice | Mind Funeral | Nemesis of Reason

These are all under $10, I would also invest in having 3 to 4 copies of a number of these.
