Oboro, Palace in the Clouds Discussion

I would ditch Mind Grind...i have played with it for awhile and more often than not there are just better options....Monastery Siege would go nicely in here.

something like Surgical Extraction/Extirpate are pretty strong with mill.

Some Mill creatures to consider are Hedron Crab (with Oboro, Palace in the Clouds), Wight of Precinct Six and Trepanation Blade is pretty fun...Glimpse the Unthinkable can result in swinging for 5 in the air on T2 with Jace's Phantasm.

I have a primer for Modern Dimir Mill on my page if ya wanna take a look for more ideas.

TheSurgeon The pricy cards are necessary, putting aside Oboro, Palace in the Clouds so i'd stick with them. Remand is nasty, my friend has it in his illusions deck. But Remand doesn't do THAT much for the deck, however I can't find a good replacement which is a huge bummer. For Oboro, Palace in the Clouds I could replace it with your recommendation. I'm very indecisive when it comes to these kinds of things. It's a real bummer that i'm dirt poor.

TheSurgeon Would Coral Atoll work well in place of Oboro, Palace in the Clouds ?

TheSurgeon Oboro, Palace in the Clouds was the card I'd replace for Halimar Depths as you suggested. That'd bring the price down $20 and help me a lot. I have to go to work but I'll look at the rest of your reply later, thanks!

shirouu- First, thank you for the uovote and thanks for considering my deck for a comeback!

Yeah, the "No" factor of this deck makes it pretty aggravating to play.
The real wallet sluggers here are:
Mesmeric Orb- These are nearly 40% of the deck's cost. Unfortunately, also nearly indespensible to the deck's mechanics. Doing so much of the heavy lifting, I'm afraid there isn't any comparable replacement for their long-game potency.

You may be able to replace these with some hard milling cards like Mind Sculpt, Tome Scour, Sanity Grinding, or Memory Erosion. All much cheaper than Orb, but will ultimately do less in the long run.

Oboro, Palace in the Clouds- this isn't necessary to the deck. In fact, it's in this list, but I don't actually have one for it in paper. My one copy is in my Esper Salt Mill. This list does quite well without it. You could use Halimar Depths for some deck fixing, and it would work with Deprive and Hedron Crab in a defensive position but still add fuel to your wincon.

Thing in the Ice  Flip- This is still in testing. With only 2 in the deck, it's not a crucial card. More of a backup wincon should I face a go-wide token or weenie deck. You could do AEtherize, or fill in with one more of each Unsummon and Vapor Snag. I've even been considering Boomerang, so I can return their lands as well.

On the low end of pricing, these cards are over 50% of the deck's cost. I'm not sure how competitive your meta is, but this will still be annoying in any capacity. If you're playing more casually, you can always do a casual mill like Bigger Bluer Eraserer, this deck features 2 cards, not legal in Modern: Whirlpool Rider and Accumulated Knowledge.

The other option to making this more effective with a budget, would be to add some more tempo. Mana Leaks, or other cheap disruption spells would simply buy you time to finish the job without the Orbs.

Hope this helps!! And I sincerely hope you get to use this and win with it. It's a lot of fun if you really like being the troll at the table!

Any more questions, or I can help, let me know!!
Go! Conquer!

I'll admit that Hedron Crab hasn't exactly put in the same amount of work that any of the other Landfall triggers have and at the end of the day, it's just a pet card. Getting it out as a turn 1 play has been the best experience for it so far and, if it doesn't draw removal, then I'm able to reliably ramp from there. It's only milled someone out once, and it took multiple plays of Oboro, Palace in the Clouds to get those final few cards milled.

The likes of Squandered Resources and Zuran Orb would both be unarguably better for the deck, but this is built from stuff that I mostly already owned and Squandered Resources has shot up in price recently while I just haven't gotten around to getting a Zuran Orb.

As for Sylvan Awakening, I'm kinda just on the fence about including a second affect like that. I'll have to test it out sometime.

Thanks for checking the deck out and the suggestions Huntluther!

You may want to include both Burgeoning and Oboro, Palace in the Clouds. This allows you to get a landfall trigger on every opponents turns when they play a land :>

Nice thematic deck!

You might want to use Oboro, Palace in the Clouds/Ghost Town to make sure that Quicksilver Fountain's second ability never triggers.
