So if you want to abuse Kolaghan's effect, the best idea: go to modern. Psychic Strike, Hedron Crab, Paranoid Delusions (maybe throw something unblockable in there), Consuming Aberration, Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker, there's a bunch of awesome stuff.

I'm not sure you have many decks that work that great with them but, Cipher anyway :) ... Stolen Identity, Undercity Plague, Paranoid Delusions, Whispering Madness

Maybe it doesn't quite fit with the strategy of this deck in particular, but I think the Ingest Eldrazis like Benthic Infiltrator, Mist Intruder, and Salvage Drone could be useful if you need more creatures or if your opponent is doing a lot of graveyard related things. Plus, then you could mainboard Paranoid Delusions to put on one of them so that you would be potentially milling 3 cards with ever attack.

In the case of lands, I would recommend mainboarding 3 Dimir Aqueduct and sideboarding 2 Bojuka Bog. Aqueduct allows you to accelerate your mana a bit faster and Bojuka allows you to shut down any graveyard stuff your opponents are doing. While they might be a little slow, you can most likely afford to play them on turn 2 or 3 since you are running a lot of 1 and 2 drops.

@HauntinYou - Thanks for the great comment!

  1. Withered Wretch seems like a great idea and I'll have to find a place for it.

  2. Fatespinner is another great card I'd love to add for pillow fort reasons.

  3. It is a very nice combo but it would require taking away too much of the deck so I probably won't include it. I also like to have cards in graveyards for other cards in the deck.

  4. Wrexial, the Risen Deep is a really good card, but it doesn't actually contribute to milling so I'm on the fence about adding it.

  5. Nemesis of Reason is a card I've always wanted to add but just never really found a spot for so I'll have to see.

  6. Riddlekeeper is another definite card I want to add!

  7. I had Szadek, Lord of Secrets in the deck at one point and I even tried using him as the commander, but he never was able to do enough by the time I finally cast him. Maybe things have changed and I'll have to try him again.

  8. I like the idea of Shred Memory but the combo is just in there because the cards are good on their own and I think I'll stick to the Withered Wretch for targeted graveyard removal.

Thanks again for the extensive comment!

@NV_1980 - Increasing Confusion was in the deck at one point as well as Paranoid Delusions but neither did as much work as I thought they would and they both only target a single player which does not work great in a 6-player game. As for Keening Stone, it is already in the deck and Sword of Body and Mind is definitely a card I want! Thanks!

@scaredcrow4 - Adding Shizo, Death's Storehouse sounds like a great idea!

@jon_hill987 - Thanks for the positive comment and upvote!

@metalheadforlife25 & Fujjji - Thanks for the upvote!

Thanks everyone for everything!

Hey there,Phenax, God of Deception is nice for your combo. Do you have considered to take out Duskmantle Guildmage and put in Dimir Infiltrator with Paranoid Delusions would also synergy with your Mindcrank and just for the fun it makes put in two Undead Alchemist in case someone plays with anti artifact spells.

How about Increasing Confusion? Especially during the mid/late game phases, this can really start to hurt. Keening Stone could also really increase the speed of your opponents' downfall. I see you're using Whispering Madness; you could also add Paranoid Delusions. Maybe not as powerful, but still ... Last but not least, equipping Mirko with the Sword of Body and Mind would make him even scarier.

If you want to try combat based milling, you should have Paranoid Delusions on some unblockable cards, like Invisible Stalker and Curiosity for more speed, meaning you can draw more milling/control options.

There's no problem with making it not combat based, I'm just showing another perspective.

Also, I forgot to mention in the other comment, Jace's Erasure is just a bad Sphinx's Tutelage, and it only shows value on specific decks, like Standard Sphinx MILL - BUDGET $$$ (it uses cards like Forgotten Creation to make your opponent throw cards away like crazy)
