Psychic Strike Discussion

Best advice I can give is the Commanderin' Podcast's latest episode which is actually all about this commander. They do a really great job, of breaking down how to pilot a deck like this. Deck looks solid overall.

Consuming AberrationOblivion SowerPsychic StrikeTraumatizePsychic Spiral

Are definitely additions I would make.

Lame_Duck thank you for the suggestions I didn't know about those cards you mentioned. I am definitely using Psychic Strike as an upgrade. As for the gifts ungiven tag I wasn't aware of the card. I thought it meant stealing the opponents creatures. I'm still pretty unsure of the "tags" meanings. Thanks for letting me know. That card will be super helpful in my zombie commander deck.

There are cards that are strictly better than Cancel: Dissolve or Dissipate. Or you could try Hinder, which would let you put a creature you want to steal with Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver on top. Or Psychic Strike to help with the mill plan.

Also, you've got this tagged under "Gifts Ungiven" but I don't see any Gifts Ungiven anywhere.

Captain_AHat, thanks.

You cannot exile sorceries with Isochron Scepter. If I had to raise the curve a bit I would add more Breaking / Enterings for the Shriekhorns, but that is not the case. Shriekhorn doesn't look great, but it fills most of the roles Mill needed: good mill card at 1 mana, instant mill, mill spreadable in more activations.. there are cons, but these functions are too useful (especially the first).Psychic Spiral: you already don't the the time to cast Archive Trap (and when you do it is sufficient), and you need to play Archive Trap.Psychic Strike: counterspells don't solve any of Mill's problems. And Mana Leak would be better in any realistic circumstance.

Wow, really in-depth description, kudos. I did want to make a few comments though. I realize a lot of people use them but the Shriekhorns always felt so slow to me, are they really necessary. Have you considered the inclusion of Isochron Scepter? By putting a mill spell like Glimpse the Unthinkable or even Tome Scour on it, you have a repeatable source of mill with way higher value than the Shriekhorn albeit for more mana but that might free some spots for protection. Two more cards that might work well are Psychic Spiral which could shore up your late game and serve as a finisher or Psychic Strike which can act as control/protection and mill at the same time.

I see your problem. you don't have the winning combination. let me tell you it. Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank . and to keep from milling yourself out either add 1 Elixir of Immortality or 2 Learn from the Past. and if you want something in the countering department I suggest Psychic Strike. it's a counter + a mill. double the fun. also scratch out the Metallurgic Summonings. you don't have six artifacts in this deck and it's other ability is plain useless to this theme.

Appetite for Brains ... Despise ... I didn't see them in there....

Cremate .. Beckon Apparition .. Vile Rebirth.. something to do with those Discards? and these are Instant's???

Black Cat Vs.Drainpipe Vermin not sure, (2CMC) but Cat is a "Random" Discard??? and doesn't need to be paid to activate...

or maybe a Wight of Precinct Six? again something to do with the Discards?

Seeing this is "Your" take on the Rack... what about adding in Blue and the Mill??? and Alt-Win-Con's

Jace's Phantasm might work along with the Wight's if you liked them???

also opens options like Dimir Charm and Psychic Strike Mind Grind Pilfered Plans

Mind Sculpt and Tome Scour with the Phantasm/Wight's???

Quicken might work with all the sorceries you have (20 of them)?

Just thought's good luck...

Kamassa on Crazy and unexpected Consuming Aberration combo

Great idea comboing Essence Harvest with Consuming Aberration. Upvote! I'm going to have to get some for my deck. Much to my friends disgust I have been playing Mill Decks for years, and while my latest mill deck is very focussed on Sphinx's Tutelage there are some cards I couldn't go without;

Mind Sculpt and Wight of Precinct Six - could replace your Paranoid Delusions + Invisible Stalker if you find the trick is too unreliable / infrequent. Traumatize is tricky being another 5-drop but mills 10-20 with ease.

Sideboard options, Pilfered Plans + Psychic Strike are great cards and since this is a BU mill deck, have a look at Rise of the Dark Realms or Liliana Vess for the same ability, if you think the game will last that long.
