Needs Phenax, God of Deception and Eater of the Dead . You will mill everyone out at the table with this combo. Be wary of eldrazi.

Hover Barrier instead of Guardians of Meletis might be better? They can block flyers and are able to get Phenax, God of Deception online for the same cmc..

Have you thought about turning this into a blue-black deck and adding cards like Phenax, God of Deception or Nighthowler ?

Triton Tactics +Phenax, God of Deception 's ability is a great double mill combo and also fits your pillow fort approach with the Wall of Frost like effect

I like this deck, but Waste Not seems like the wrong card here, the only time that your opponent would be discarding cards here is through Jace, Memory Adept 's final effect the rest do not count as discard effects. I'd recommend dropping them for something like 4x Tome Scour for extra cheap mill or even 2xPhenax, God of Deception and 2x Tome Scour for some late game and some early

+1 from me

Some fun suggestions I have are as follows: In my opinion you have too many ways to mill your opponant but not enough ways to survive. For example Jace, Memory Adept will mill your opponant just fine on his own. You might be able to replace cards like Mind Sculpt with something more meaningful like Divination or Devour Flesh

Have you considered Consuming Aberration ? THAT card is fun. Mill is a terrible archtype but when you have a Consuming Aberration and then play a Phenax, God of Deception You can literally "one shot" your opponant. Just tap your aberration to mill them for however many cards are in thier graveyard. maybe add a Liliana Vess or Disciple of Deceit To make getting your phenax + Aberration combo easier.

babydaggers Thanks for the suggestion Phenax, God of Deception is for sure on my radar. Not sure what to take out. This deck is running pretty well right now. What would you cut?

HydraOoze I like Counterspell but I just didn't find it did enough. I wanted counter spells like: Hinder and Spell Crumple that put cards on the bottom of libraries so I could Tunnel Vision them :)

Phenax, God of Deception helps if you don't have an attack step option, and once he's a creature he goes HAM. Price
