Psychic Corrosion Discussion

I see what you did here DrkNinja. It's very similar to my deck though I think your deck budget blows mine out of the water without trying. Most of my "expensive" cards came from a deck I had constructed previously centered around "The Scarab God".
Some simple adds that won't cost ya to increase your chance at win through mill are Jace's Erasure and Psychic Corrosion. These will help if you happen not to get Altar of the Brood or Sphinx's Tutelage. These next cards are a bit more pricey but will help you maintain a hand card advantage since Varina, Lich Queen only filters and doesn't offer help with your hand thinning out. I recommend Kindred Discovery and Vanquisher's Banner. These will help you not run out of cards and also synergize very well with Sphinx's Tutelage, Jace's Erasure, and Psychic Corrosion.
In my deck, I avoided the mill strat because the deck was designed to be efficient in its win cons and its aggro. While I do agree that mill is a hilarious way to win, I feel in EDH it is too slow to be considered efficient. I also wanted to avoid fueling anyone's graveyard with re-accruable spells since I do play with players who favor reanimation and flashback in their deck strats. Thanks for the comment though and wish you the best of luck!

your thoughts on Psychic Corrosion?

I second Psychosis Crawler.
I'd also add Psychic Corrosion to mill out your opponents while you draw.
Cards to capitalize on full graveyards would be helpful too.

Still gotta see what Ravnica brings us...
Obviously we won't have anything but Ixalan on up, so Amonkhet and Kaladesh cards are not to be included. I'm waiting for some of them juicy Ravnica spoilers to be revealed though because if the deck is going to work we need something from that set to fit it. Especially more draw triggerers.
Mystic Archaeologist is nice.
Been contemplating The Immortal Sun but at 6 mana it's kind of steep for what is basically a Dictate of Kruphix effect for this deck. It's obviously a powerful card though and does wonders against decks utilizing planeswalkers though it's vulnerable to eat removal right away.
Curator's Ward gives your Enchantments some removal protection. Not used for the draw clause but if you get use out of it all the better.
So far if you're not playing some form of hybrid control mill it's just not going to work. Play corrosion/rebuilding combo, kill everything or control everything, and draw your way to victory. Not enough draw triggers currently though.
And as for control mill that's not what I want to do though. I want a mill deck not a control deck with secondary mill. You end up doing more controlling than milling and if you’re going to focus on control then you would be better served to just have a beater creature finish them off the normal way.
Other Ideas I've contemplated for this mill deck;
Riverwise Augur + Naban, Dean of Iteration is a nice little ETB combo. Draw 6 cards mill 12 off their deck. Set up your next 4 draws. Allows you to get more from other ETB effects too paired with a Naban. Like Skyscanner and Silvergill Adept. Especially if using cards like Siren's Ruse to bounce and repeat the ETB effects. This is not very good but it is a different route to go.
Nezahal, Primal Tide punishes them for playing any Noncreature spell. It's costly though and I don't see it fitting in our curve.

BaneOfLordran I like the deck changes. I'm glad you liked cutting red. I am having enough consistency issues with my Arcades deck in bant colors. I am almost all blue/white in that deck besides splash of green for arcades.
My first thought to make the deck more competitive is you have many 1-2ofs and so few 4ofs. This will impact your consistency. Take the rest of these suggestions with a grain of salt. I find the best way to narrow my deck down to consistent 4ofs is to play the deck with many 1-3ofs and see what cards I like and what I don't.
Now for cards like Azor or Teferi, 1of is probably correct. I think you should cut Overflowing Insight for more Patient Rebuilding. Rebuilding enters the game faster and combos very well with Psychic Corrosion. 4 Diligent Excavator seems correct although it is not historic nor a defender. I would recommend a tad more removal to help you get to late game. Cast Out is great for maintaining instant speed or more Seal Away or perhaps Baffling End. Sai, Master Thopterist has been only ok in my deck. It may be better in yours with instant speed draw card ability. Wall of Vines might want to be replaced with Novice Knight. It is also a 1 mana defender that loses reach but gains two power which makes him a much scarier blocker. It depends on your local meta as far as how often you will be against flying creatures.
I think I'm going to buy the pieces and morph my Arcades deck into yours. I do not have a Teferi online but two Azor will do fine. I like how it will survive the Kaladesh/Aether Revolt rotation. That was a requirement when building my Arcades deck. Keep playtesting and tweaking!
