TheRedMage on Canadian Highlander Deck Help

As Boza said, this deck seems unfocused. It looks like you are trying to build some sort of 5 color goodstuff, but you lack the interaction necessary to build a deck like that and not die to combo decks.

In general it seems like a lot of your cards are suboptimal. Cards like Psychic Strike, Arcane Denial, Complicate and Spell Shrivel are kinda inefficient, especially when you are not running better counterspells like Mental Misstep, Spell Snare, Spell Pierce and Mana Drain, as well as other pieces of early disruption like Hymn to Tourach, Thoughtseize or Inquisition of Kozilek.

In your deck you mention you made this into a 5-color deck to play Bloodbraid. But playing Bloodbraid when you have this many counterspells (which, remember, usually do nothing when cascaded into) seems loose. If you want to maintain this build, I'd probably play Cryptic Command and Mystic Confluence s my only counterspells (since Bloodbraid can't cascade into them) and instead base my interaction on removal and hand disruption.

Added Coat of Arms, Counterspell, Grafted Exoskeleton, Oona's Gatewarden, Perplex, Psychic Strike, Silumgar's Command, Spell Crumple, and Sword of the Animist. Hopefully this will help with the lack of control and allow me to play an extra land each turn for Oona's ability. More Faerie tokens for me, less cards in your library!

I love mill decks and I also have one with Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker.

Here's some food for thought:

Overall, a nice build. It was a pleasure reviewing your deck. If you want, you can look at my deck for more thoughts. Have fun milling!


I Hope You Didn't Need That (help appreciated)

luke1 I think you are right.

I have added in some Psychic Strike to give me some counters while still milling.

Can't think of what else thought. Any suggestions?

Take out Undermine for any better counterspell ie. Countermand or Psychic Strike both of which mill your opponent to fuel The Mimeoplasm rather than dealing damage, which is useless in an infect deck.

Any self mill to fuel The Mimeoplasm, a good way for you to win would be to get any creature with infect into your graveyard, preferably Blighted Agent, and The Mimeoplasm it with a bunch of counters from Phyrexian Dreadnought. So anything to get them into your graveyard will be super helpful. Some good self mill should definatly be considered, Mirror-Mad Phantasm is good becuase it also had 5 toughness for The Mimeoplasm, but it is quite a high cost. Also milling your opponent(s) can help your chances of getting a big greature into the graveyard. Fascination and cards like that could really help you mill through your deck. Entomb is definatly a must, it is another tutor for The Mimeoplasm with the added bonus of going straight into your graveyard. If you can afford it Liliana of the Veil is a great low cost card to empty your creatures into the graveyard for The Mimeoplasm or anything like it would also help.

You seem to have a lot of hexproof, will you need it all? Maby try cutting a few of the less impactful hexproof/shroud cards. Mask of Avacyn is using your mana for little reward, the +1/+2 won't help you deal all that much more damage to your opponent. Archetype of Endurance is also not ideal the 8 cmc is way to high and there are plenty more, and better creatures you would want to exile with The Mimeoplasm.

Some more trample would be nice Nylea, God of the Hunt comes to mind.

Certainly more proliferate, Contagion Clasp, Contagion Engine, Fuel for the Cause, Grim Affliction, Inexorable Tide, Spread the Sickness, Steady Progress, Tezzeret's Gambit would all be quite good in your deck. Apart from Inexorable Tide they all have usefull effects for your deck. Back to my first point, Fuel for the Cause is another great counterspell, this time is also makes you 1 poison counter closer to winning.

Maby Plaguemaw Beast if you want, but there are probably better cards you could put instead. Just for the proliferate cause you won't always need your vanilla 1/1 infect.

(Sorry if there is anything wrong with that comment, I was up untill 11:40 writing this post, worst of all it is a week night. I would have put a lot mroe effort into it if I had time but I hope you can use what I gave you.)

Great deck. For my mill I also like to run Glimpse the Unthinkable, Jace's Phantasm, Psychic Strike, Mind Funeral --personally I like this better than Mind Grind-- and for an infinite mill combo I use Duskmantle Guildmage with Mindcrank.
