Profane Memento Discussion

SentinelElf2711 on Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind(SB HELP PlZ)

Hi Vinman. I am here from your comment on my Competitive UB mill modern (2020 short guide). For the SB i suggest u to remove Hurkyl's Recall cuz was a counter for affinity deck, but now is out of meta, so it's a dead sb card. Spellskite is a strange card for mill, why are u playing it? Why are u playing Trapmaker's Snare in sb? It is good only if u play Ravenous Trap. You can't play Lurrus of the Dream-Den if u play Ashiok, Dream Render cuz of the ruling of lurrus; so you have to choose, or lurrus or ashiok. Remove Nature's Claim cuz you don't play greed lands :). Ensnaring Bridge is a good SB card, add Damnation or Bontu's Last Reckoning for a mass removal. You need something for gaining life (Cling to Dust in my opinion is not enough), I suggest you to put in some Crypt Incursion or Profane Memento. I suggest you to remove Ghost Quarter and add 2 more Field of Ruin becouse fields force your oppo to search and proc landfall of your crabs. I suggest u to remove 2 Watery Grave and add 2 Darkslick Shores so you don't lose too mutch HP early. Hope I helped u :)

Also Profane Memento is an awesome budget card I'd never seen for a mill deck.

I'm saying play more 1-ofs that you can transmute for. Its the payoff for transmute; golden bullets.

When you need to look out sideboard cards List of Modern Sideboard Staples hasn't been updated in a couple years but still has most of the stuff, but you can also look at tournament lists to see what people are putting in.

Profane Memento,Cling to Dust, Stern Dismissal, Drown in the Loch, Echoing Truth. This could also help you find the power cards you are missing; stuff like Visions of Beyond or the Archive Trap/Scheming Symmetry interactions. Generally the most competitive version of the deck is just fetches and saying "Hedron Crab, save me!", but its been an expensive tier2 list for a long time; there are budget options for a lot of the slots.

If you need power without picking up a bankbreaking manabase, pick up visions and then think about tinkering with Sphinx's Tutelage type 'stick enchantments and draw cards', with spells like Remand to stay alive is fun; the main advantage of non-netdecks and rogue decks is unpredictability; play around with different plans.

Pick sideboard cards based on what your deck needs to do in the matchup; slowing down aggressive decks that want to race you and protecting your threats/putting down a difficult to remove threat against decks that are slower than you. Mostly it'll be specific 'this buys me a couple turns for my orbs to win the game' cards.

Look at why matchups don't feel good and think 'what cards in my hand would have needed to be other cards to win that match'. Sometimes the answer is 'play a different deck', but other times you realise that if a secretkeeper was an Echoing Truth to search for, you'd win.

Profane Memento looks quite strong here. Never saw that card before; good call!

Have you considered Sunken Ruins for the mana base? Seems better than something like Dimir Aqueduct, although it’s pricier too and I’m not sure what budget you’ve settled on for this deck. Just a thought.

To add all of that, I would take out 7 Wastes, Mishra's Bauble, Profane Memento, Thought Prison, Sun Droplet, Mishra's Bauble, Horn of Greed, Golem Artisan, Suspicious Bookcase(swap for Manifold Key, forgot about this beauty earlier), the Kaldra equipment can go (not enough tutoring), Pristine Talisman, swap Orazca Relic for Mind Stone, Oblivion Sower, and two more cards... but that's where it gets really difficult... maybe Skullclamp and Pilgrim's Eye? Your call.

Looks great!

I would include one Mystic Sanctuary and one Oboro, Palace in the Clouds instead of a flooded strand. 8 fetches it's a little too much when you're two colours. (oboro good against choke as well)

I think you're missing Mission Briefing. It's a very good card as, unlike snappy, you can play the alternative cost to cards (e.g archive trap or surgical).

Mind Funeral is one of my favourite cards. Unfortunately, it's not great. Consider Mission Briefing, Collective Brutality, Surgical Extraction or Search for Azcanta  Flip

Ashiok, Dream Render is mainly used for her static effect. Can main board if your meta has a lot of scapeshift or something, but I would keep her a 1-2 of in the side.

Not a big fan of Profane Memento. I think Crypt Incursion is just better as you don't have to hard mulligan for it as you can top deck it.

Consider Leyline of Sanctity if burn, jund or mardu pyromancer is big in your meta.

I feel like Inquisition of Kozilek is just a (very good) filler card. If you're struggling to fit something in, I would cut that.
