having more diverse permanents may help, such as Wight of Precinct Six, or Hedron Crab for creatures, for artifacts Sands of Delirium and Grindclock are good. Some other good spells I could suggest would be Psychic Strike for hard counter with mill in addition, and I personally use Psychic Spiral for a restock + mill

Hey there. Great deck so far. How 'bout sideboarding Sphinx's Tutelage in case you're playing against monos? I'd also recommend Visions of Beyond for a higher card draw and Psychic Spiral to mill faster (especially when you're running against Aggro)

If your just getting into modern, here's my take to help you play a mill deck with a sideboard for the format modern.

Game 1 is full throttle wincon. Put enough disruption in to get the job done as fast as possible to see what you're up against. The sideboard is used to fill in defensive holes games 2&3. Mill catds shouldn't be included in the SB, they don't help you. You need to buy more time to make the deck work.

That being said, you need to drop from the SB the following:
Belltower Sphinx
Grisly Spectacle
Psychic Strike
Psychic Spiral
These cards are too expensive and do too little, too late.
Visions of Beyond- (you already have 3 in MB)
I would suggest MB your Crypt Incursions, as well. These have done SO.MUCH for me, and many decks have a hard time coming back from your lifegain.

Consider for your SB, going Esper. Add like 5 plains, a couple Ethereal Haze, Darkness, Ghostly Prison (for go-wide decks) or Holy Day, to stop combat damage. Perhaps some Path to Exile to set up a free Archive Trap trigger. Seek can proactively find and remove GY reshufflers like the Eldrazi titans (Emerakul, Ulamog), and artifacts/enchantments like Leyline of Sanctity, Elixir of Immortality, and Wheel of Sun and Moon. Alternatively, you

If Affinity is found in your meta, I would try Hurkyl's Recall, or a bit more expensive card like Stony Silence.

n0bunga- I need at least 2. If an opponent falls for the Trap once, they rarely fall for it again. If that's the case, I need Something to make sure the job gets done, and I need a better chance than 1/60. Otherwise I'm going to have to use turns 5-10 to make my moves for victory, and I don't have the resources to draw out the game that long.

How about 1x Psychic Spiral, I can use it anytime after turn 5 to keep the game going. I briefly put it in here while editing last time, but decided against it. Now, I'm second guessing that decision. Thoughts?

Your are totally missing Paradox Engine combopieces!

Using Kaho ability is still casting which means you untap her. Which means that with enought manarocks, you can play every spell exiled with her.

WHICH means You can attack Ghostly Flicker to flicker her and get new spell!

WHICH MEANS you actually exile Flickerspell and graveyard recursion spell such as Mnemonic Nexus and another spell You might need (probably counterspell).

WHICH NOW MEANS THAT with board state of Paradox Engine, Thousand-Year Elixir and Kaho with enought artifical ramp YOU GET TO CAST EVERYSINGLE INSTANT IN YOUR LIBRARY, ANY TIMES U WISH. AT INSTANT SPEED.

This goes like this:

  • Opponent does something,

  • In response You use Kaho ability to cast everyspell he exiled (to put them into graveyard) with flickering her as last to resolve (which actually means first to be cast), untapping her and mana rocks with Paradox Engine,

  • she reenters the battlefield and You choose to pick new instants,

  • obiviously You exile needed answer to Opponent move, Another GV shuffle spell and another flicker.

  • thanks to Elixir, You can instantly use her ability to answer opponent move, then use GV recursion to shuffle GV into library (that will be the last used answer, last time used flicker and GV recursion),

  • Kaho stays with Flicker spell left exiled with her, waiting to repeat this whole proces in response to anything.

THAT IS INFINITE POWER. YOU ARE GODLIKE WITH SUCH STATE.

Ofc until some1 Krosan Grip your Paradox Engine. BUT WITHOUT OPPONENTS ANSWERS, YOU ARE GOD.

At this moment You decide everything. Some1 wants to attack some1? You might say "DENIED!" and do Kaho stuff to cast AEtherize.

Some1 want to cast anything? You may say "There you go" and let it resolve.

OR YOU CAN SAY "NOT EVEN CLOSE BABY" and use Kaho to cast Counterspell.

Some1 starts to weine? SIMPLY USE Brain Freeze and finish him.

You can answer everything unless they go for Split Secound spell.

Cards I suggest:

Paradox Engine and Thousand-Year Elixir as needed combopieces

Ghostly Flicker and Displace to use to flicker Kaho for new spells.

Mnemonic Nexus and Psychic Spiral to shuffle GV into Lib and reuse everything.

The thing is that we needed 2 of each of those spells to be able to loop GV recursion and Flickers (that after using one, there is still one in Lib to exile and cast to get the other from GV to Lib again)

The rest of suggestions are ofc dependent on what You want to do, just find 2 of each kind so that they can still loop like others.

Yeah, I actually wanted to make such deck, but would really like to see some1 else doing it, since I spent to much moniez to MTG anyway and my Playgroup is more casual.

krichaiushii, glad you liked it. I agree Psychic Spiral will be great to help against accidental self milling. I'll be adding it soon. Learn from the Past could be good too. I'll add that to the maybeboard. Learn would be good against graveyard abusers too, but my meta (same group every week) doesn't have a whole lot of grave shenanigans, and I'm adding Scavenger Grounds for that.

Both Learn from the Past and Psychic Spiral can help with your stated weakness to accidental milling.

Otherwise, I like it and will be stealing ideas for my Kami deck!

Cheers!
