Patient Rebuilding Discussion

Thanks for stopping by, iNinjy!

As for the cards, here are my thoughts:

  • Mind Funeral was previously in the deck, but has been cut in favour of other more impacting effects. Still in the sideboard. The only problem it has it's that it targets a single player, so it's less impacting than what I would like it to.

  • Altar of Dementia is very powerful, but is ought to be my finishing move, as the X/X creature that I sacrifice to it is no more available for extra milling, so I guess I won't put it in yet.

  • Glimpse and Mind Sculpt are one player focused, and since I play in 4-6 players games, the impact they have on the game is negligible, thus they were not included (for similar reasons as the removal of Mind Funeral from Mainboard).

  • Patient Rebuilding was previously in the deck, but has been cut for straight out being an inefficient mana investment. At 5 mana, this card competes with casting Phenax or Consuming Aberration , and it's not nearly as useful. Not only that, but I have to wait my next turn for the effect to trigger, it targets only one person (for a negligible amount of cards) and the amount of cards I get to draw could as well be zero. Since it was meant to be one of the deck's drawing engines, I substituted it months ago with Recurring Insight , as it can draw more and more quickly.

For some more mill options, there’s Altar of Dementia , Mind Funeral (very similar to Mind Grind), Glimpse the Unthinkable , Mind Sculpt , and Patient Rebuilding (which can also benefit you with card draw)

"One-card wincons" to consider: Insurrection , Expropriate , Painful Quandary , Rise of the Dark Realms , Revel in Riches , Cut / Ribbons . Perhaps Clone Legion , Rite of Replication , Mogis, God of Slaughter , Hour of Promise , Blatant Thievery , Grave Betrayal , or Mind's Dilation .

The Chain Veil , Inexorable Tide , Contagion Clasp , and Contagion Engine maybe?

One thing to think about is getting Nicol Bolas flipped and maybe joined by the other planeswalkers and casting Obliterate , Jokulhaups , Devastation , or Decree of Annihilation . Almost guaranteed ultimates. Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God would be the best--proxy for now and include in first build?

I like the deck but I would consider taking out Weight of Memory and replace it with Patient Rebuilding

Thanks for all the comments MTGers!

ChaosLlama, thanks for your suggestions. I like Recollect because it can target Planeswalkers, Enchantments, etc. in my graveyard and that comes in pretty handy sometimes. It can also get doubled up off of Primal Amulet  Flip. I did take your advice on putting in an extra Search for Azcanta  Flip and dropping the Naturalize though.

OberstHati, thanks for the input. The main reason I'm not main boarding Psychic Corrosion or Patient Rebuilding or other classic "Mill" cards (that I adore) is because I'm trying to avoid running into Gaea's Blessing . I am side-boarding them though! ;)

Adding Psychic Corrosion gives you The Chance to stock up your hand AND mill The Opponent simultanously,... Might be worth a try,...Same for Patient Rebuilding . Looks annoying though!

I'm not really that much of a standard guy myself, but what I learned from being at the 2019 pre release is that Patient Rebuilding and Psychic Corrosion are a nice painful combination. I see that you already have Patient Rebuilding in your sideboard, but those two together are nice and annoying for the other player.

Traumatize Mindcrank Jace's Phantasm (if you want) Jace, Memory Adept and perhaps Jace's Erasure . The combo of Patient Rebuilding and Psychic Corrosion could also work out for you.
