Patient Rebuilding


At the beginning of your upkeep, target opponent puts the top three cards of their library into their graveyard, then you draw a card for each land card put into that graveyard this way.

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.

Marpal Thanks! I don't know why I didn't think of Patient Rebuilding . I added Syncopate and Negate to up the counter amount

Personally I love the sinergy between Psychic Corrosion and Patient Rebuilding because it makes a nasty card draw milling engine! I would maybe cut out the Drowned Secrets and add some more control cards replacing Radical Idea and Opt that are there just to trigger the mill enchantments

I've added more early counters and Cast Down for some early threats.

Removed Disinformation Campaign and added Patient Rebuilding for more mill

I don't know about creatures, added Lazav, the Multifarious , to copycat, Hostage Taker to take that creature threat that can bother me, and Nightveil Predator to control the battlefield.

Added some stuff on sideboard but I don't know if it's good enough. Even mainboard instant/sorcery spells I'm quite doubtful.

What do you think?

Thanks Murphy77 for those tips.

I noticed this deck is fairly old now and a couple cards came out that could help improve this:

Fraying Sanity is an enchantment, at the end of each players turn, enchanted plkayer mills X where X is how many cards went into their graveyard this turn

Fleet Swallower is a creature that mills the top half of any player's deck when it attacks. regardless of whether it hits them or not

The Scarab God lets you scry X at the beginning of your turn and steal creatures from any graveyard at instant speed which lets you scry even more and plan out your next draws

Psychic Corrosion any time you draw a card everyone else mills 2

Patient Rebuilding at the start of your turn someone mills 3 and you draw extra cards if you mill lands, those draws will trigger Psychic Corrosion

Drowned Secrets makes someone mill 2 whenever you cast a blue spell

Possibly Diligent Excavator does the same as Drowned Secrets but when you cast an artifact, legend, or saga although it might not neccessarily fit very well

For lands, Cabal Stronghold doesn't make any sense. You're running 7 Basic Swamps. If you wanted to put in Cabal Coffers with Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth , that could work, but I doubt you want to put your money there. Cascading Cataracts, Waterveil Cavern, Survivor's Encampment, Shimmering Grotto, Rupture Spire, Guildmage's Forum, and Gateway Plaza should be the next to go. You're running a 2-color deck, so you don't need such bad fixing. I'd also lose Everglades.

Nighthowler is the only really bad creature that I see, although you'll probably want more if you're on the self-mill plan. Triskaidekaphobia and Tree of Perdition are cute. I don't think I would run that, but if you're going to, run Clutch of the Undercity and Dimir House Guard to tutor up the pieces.

Spinal Embrace is a cool card, but it's pretty inefficient. For that kind of mana, you could be running Kindred Dominance , Crux of Fate , Deadly Tempest , Decree of Pain , Extinguish All Hope , or Life's Finale (I would go with this one, given your commander). Cancel is a no-go. Counterspell , Negate , Swan Song , Countersquall , Dissolve , Arcane Denial , Disallow , Sinister Sabotage and Dream Fracture should all be in the deck before Cancel.

I don't know why you're running Dramatic Reversal , but if you are, you should be running Isochron Scepter for the infinite mana.

Tome of the Guildpact is pretty bad in this deck. If you want rocks, you should be running Sky Diamond , Charcoal Diamond , Coldsteel Heart , Mind Stone , Thought Vessel , and Talisman of Dominance before you touch that or Darksteel Ingot in a 2-color deck. If you're looking for card draw, Phyrexian Arena , Syphon Mind , Fact or Fiction , Tidings , Sign in Blood , and Night's Whisper are all better.

If you wanna mill, Altar of the Brood , Mesmeric Orb , Dread Summons , Sphinx's Tutelage , Psychic Corrosion , Traumatize , Patient Rebuilding , Memory Erosion , and Whetstone are all more powerful than Millstone (though I do appreciate it's OG status).

If you want to see what other people are playing in their Scarab God decks, I recommend checking out the EDHREC page for him.
