ChooseWiselySon on Mill - Go for the lands

Hi Wallisface,

Thank you for your comment and point of view. I think ditching Mind Grind would indeed be a wise choice as well as Pilfered Plans . Concerning killspells/removal I will have to see what I have in stock (I sadly do not have any Fatal Push ).

Would you have any revommendations ?

wallisface on Mill - Go for the lands

I feel like if you’re going down a more slow-paced, controlly route with mill, you probably want dome cards that can actually control the boardstate? Ditch Mind Grind and Pilfered Plans because they are both trash regardless of the flavour of mill. Ditch 3 of the Fraying Sanity too because drawing a second one in a mill deck often means not having the gas to close out the game.

Get some killspells in there so you can actually last long enough to do your gimmick!

Thank you for the suggestions, Firstmiracle.

I also thought about Gravecrawler and Grimgrin, Corpse-Born, but at this moment they are too expensive. Living Death is new to me, but also too expensive. So as long as i don't swap them for something similar expensive, i can't play them.

I would like to play Secrets of the Dead and would replace Pilfered Plans with it.

I guess I should rephrase "fetch lands" as "search lands" for lands like Evolving Wilds. I prefer to keep them in since it will activate Hedron Crab the same way. I have Pilfered Plans as an option instead of Thought Scour. Ideally I want this deck to mill by turn 5 or 6 so I would still rather keep Wall of Frost instead of Consuming Aberration.

Thanks for the suggestions! I've looked at most of them in the past, though;

Coffers/Urborg is a bit money-intensive, once I get hold of them they're in.

Mesmeric Orb I feel is only really good with an Eldrazi titan since you always have the shuffle effect you really need when running it, Psychic Spiral just isn't as reliable as it has to be in your hand. Also, without Orb, I've found Psychic Spiral to be very lackluster on its own.

Archive Trap is a one-use mill spell which I'm trying to avoid. The only one-use mill spells I'll run would have to mill for way more than 13. Trap is just card disadvantage most of the time, while also bringing in hate early.

Evacuation is actually pretty great, still trying to find a spot for it.

Pilfered Plans and Visions of Beyond: Plans is just draw 2 for 3, the mill isn't that big or important most of the time and there are better options for draw. I've thought about Visions of Beyond in the past, but I think I'd rather add Rhystic Study as it usually draws more.

Mesmeric Orbis great...and you can recycle your graveyard with Psychic Spiral.

Other cards i like are:

Archive Trap:you'll always mill 13cards for 0mana.

Evacuation:You need to clean the battlefield against aggressive decks.

Pilfered Plans and Visions of Beyond.. Are both good and it looks like you are missing in card draw.

Pilfered Plans for draws, Propaganda for much-needed protection, Bonehoard is an OHK, Geralf's Mindcrusher is a big thing, Memory Erosion is some more milling, Nemesis of Reason is also gigantic and terrifying, Profane Memento makes you that extra bit harder to kill, Riddlekeeper is a decent deterrent for attackers, and Sphinx's Tutelage, once again, mills things.

From one Dimir agent to another: stay millin' and stay chillin'.
