Iron_Cube on MagicalHacker - List of All Draw Cards (Burst)

Even if it also makes your opponent draw, I think Prosperity, Skyscribing and Fascination could be on the list.
They can be played in Nekusar, the Mindrazer, Leovold, Emissary of Trest or used with Spirit of the Labyrinth and Notion Thief.

ah well and Notion Thief + Geier Reach Sanitarium is also Nasty especially because u can activate the sanitarium in the upkeep of an opponent who had no cards just after his draw = he will be forced to discard that one card he was just drawing.

i run the whole thresome of Thief, Archivist and Sanitarium in my Tasigur and though its just a drawing mechanism for me and nothing important for my combo, its effect is heavy. just be careful not to have the Thief out with an enemy having a Consecrated Sphinx because that player can mill you then.

Trveheimer Actually that's a fair point. I took out the archivist from my earlier decklist in order to find the specific strategy I was looking for at the time. Jace's Archivist is a great card overall for this deck, and now that you mention Notion Thief, I completely overlooked that interaction. I'll throw it into the list somehow. Thank you!

megagundam7, true enough that mill is typically that way, but as by your own admission you have tried it I would welcome your thoughts on Sudden Decay - Sasaya. This is an example of a mill deck that can mill out the table in one turn.

However, my guess is that JonoHardock is trying to ensure that the mill enables many things as well as is a wincon. And he is correct when he tells me that Notion Thief plus Jace's Archivist is just stupid. Then again, the archivist with Umbral Mantle isn't any better for the opponents.

I think if I were going to play a creature like that in the deck, I would play Notion Thief. As for in the command zone, I don't like that either. The deck appreciates having Damia in the zone in case I'm unable to find cards in the redundancy section.

Overall, I'm not super interested in trying to hold my opponents back with this deck. The amount of cards I can go through makes the few control cards in the deck feel much more present, and I don't want them to get cloggy.

Triton on Big Mana, Big Draw

Mizzazzi all good haha, I think Coastal Piracy and other combat-related draw cards would do well in another build with cards like Edric, Spymaster of Trest. I used to actually have a Venser's Journal, but traded it away a while back, but I can see how it'd be good in this deck. Master of the Feast I feel is a bit more in your opponents' favor, and I do like getting some benefit off of group hug effects, and idk how consistent it would be with Notion Thief, while a cute interaction. I'll take your suggestions into consideration, thanks for the advice and upvote!

Just squeezed in Notion Thief - stops your opponent who's trying to draw like crazy from a spell, instantly.

Oddly enough its the Worldgorger Dragon combo that seems to be going off in Breya decks. First get it into the graveyard (Insert Dack Fayden, Entomb, Frantic Search, Buried Alive, Faithless Looting, Gamble, Wheel of Fortune & Windfall) Then animate it with Animate Dead, Dance of the Dead or Necromancy. With enough artifacts or lands that produce all of your colors. You can get all of the mana that you need and keep casting Breya/killing herself to kill everyone else. Also might help to throw in some tutors Lim-Dul's Vault, Mystical Tutor, Vampiric Tutor, Demonic Tutor, & Merchant Scroll. Then lets make sure no one is going to interrupt you during the combo turn Dispel, Pyroblast, Pact of Negation, Silence, Swan Song. Also, Necropotence/Notion Thief.
