Psychic Strike Discussion

Psychic Strike is one more a-ok counter magic for mill deck.Also, I wonder why no hand disruption? A couple of Thoughtseize in the side board could be useful I believe, even with Surgical Extraction in the deck.

Anw, really nice deck, was thinking about working on sth similar. ;)

I got a couple suggestions. If you want to stay mono blue then consider: 4x Thought Scour,4xs Hedron Crab, 4x Fraying Sanity, and 4x Shelldock Isle and Ipnu Rivulet and Sphinx's Tutelage are maybes.

unless summary dismissal is a meta choice than you can try Countermand.

As denijsx90 recommended before Archive Trap is worth the cost of the card, but cheaper options like Startled Awake  Flip can speed up the deck too.

2nd suggestion is adding black - which allows Glimpse the Unthinkable, Mind Funeral, Pilfered Plans, Psychic Strike, and Induce Paranoia which adds more efficient milling spells and some control and card draw.

The key to winning mill is the same as burn - SPEED, but unlike burn you have to do it 3x faster since libraries are 60 cards instead of 20 life. I play a "mono blue" with the win cons of Archive Trap+Sanity Grinding, but my deck takes advantage of using the Shadowmore/Eventide Avatars Overbeing of Myth, Godhead of Awe, Dominus of Fealty and lots of UU/UUU spells (Counterspell, Cryptic Command, Wistful Selkie, Plumeveil. Usually when I hit on turn 3 it is for 20 - 26 cards and can finish up by turn 4 or 5.

Maybe drop the Sphinx of the Final Word, Doorkeeper + defender package, and most of your spells. I like the Manic Scribe + Archaeomancer + Displace as a causal combo in multiplayer, but its too slow for Modern.

So if you want to abuse Kolaghan's effect, the best idea: go to modern. Psychic Strike, Hedron Crab, Paranoid Delusions (maybe throw something unblockable in there), Consuming Aberration, Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker, there's a bunch of awesome stuff.

Witchbane Orb and Leyline of Sanctity as well as any other cards that give a player hexproof are quite a thorn in this deck's side. Luckily, cards like Mesmeric Orb, Memory Erosion and even Psychic Strike are safe from cards like this since they don't target opponents. You do bring up a valid point as cards like these are quite bothersome. Into the Roil seems like a nice 2 of that could replace 2x Mind Funeral in the side deck. I will try this out!

Heres a list of modern legal Mill spells that I dont think you have listed in your deck.

(Archive Trap pairs well against enemies who are using fetch lands or tutors, you can also control the effect with cards like Ghost Quarter and Field of Ruin)

To make a decent mill deck youll definitely need to splash black as the most efficient cards for mill are Dimir cards.

Youll also want to use Fetch and Shock lands like Watery Grave and Polluted Delta if you want to attempt competitive level play. I would recommend not doing that though because mill is very inefficient against the meta decks in modern and is considered by most to be too slow.

Hope that helps!

I replaced Undermine with Psychic Strike, since that card has both a less mana-intensive cost and also an effect that is (usually) more powerful.

Does anyone else here have any feedback about this deck? I would be very interested to learn what people think of it.

I'd recommend Hedron Crab over Angler Drake

Traumatize is always a fun card to play

If you wanna throw in black you could run Psychic Drain, Glimpse the Unthinkable, and Psychic Strike, Perplex is fun, albeit situational

Hope this helps!
