Nephalia Drownyard Discussion

Epochalyptik on Dominus - Dreamcrusher Edition

@The-Xellos: This deck won't include it. Sorcery speed severely limits Animist's Awakening's potential, and the ROI of its effect is very low when you account for the chance inherent in its design.

@Leopleradon: Mill is an unreliable win condition in EDH, and Nephalia Drownyard means I'd need to run another land that can't produce colored mana. It doesn't really do anything necessary for the deck's success.

@Antonius_Cleus: As a sorcery that doesn't make itself reusable (compared to the instant speed and reshuffle effect of Blue Sun's Zenith), Damnable Pact comes up pretty short on value. It doesn't do anything that isn't already done more effectively and efficiently by other cards in the deck.

You have exactly one white card in this deck. There's legit no reason to strain your mana base to go esper. If you want mill, go with Sygg, River Cutthroat. He's easy to cast and provides you with advantage. As it stands, your deck is far too slow. You've got to keep in mind that Tiny Leaders is essentially Delver - The Format. Most decks, even the control ones, have efficient ways to put out the beats. They'll run you over fast.

First step: Better land base. Command Tower, Creeping Tar Pit, Darkslick Shores, Drowned Catacomb, Nephalia Drownyard, Sunken Ruins, Tainted Isle, Underground River, Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth.

Better defensive options: Baleful Strix, Fog Bank, Jace's Phantasm, Wight of Precinct Six, Smother, Counterspell, Mana Leak, Mental Misstep, Prohibit, Spell Snare, Inquisition of Kozilek, etc.

Better mill and stuff: Thought Scour, Vision Charm, Visions of Beyond, Isochron Scepter, Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver, Brain Freeze, etc.

Nephalia Drownyard might be a useful land to throw extra mana into and help you knock out a few more cards. Maybe.

Mindcrank and/or Crumbling Sanctuary would be handy if you're trying to use Nekusar to mill, since they'll also then have to mill a card whenever they draw. You might also consider spells like Fork, Reverberate, Dual Casting or Twincast for the mill spells you're already running. Nephalia Drownyard is another reusable mill option to throw extra mana into once the game gets going, and I'd recommend a Trepanation Blade for your attackers.

As a warning, mill isn't the most competitive archetype in Modern. It's slow- you effectively have 53 life to go through, opposed to 20.

If you want to make it work, You're going to want Dimir (UB) colors. Glimpse the Unthinkable, Mind Funeral, Nephalia Drownyard. You can splash white for Path to Exile to set off Archive Trap. I understand that some of these cards are very expensive, so it would help if you give us an idea of your budget.
