Psychic Strike Discussion

YourQuietDeath Removing the Glimpse the Unthinkable and replacing with things such as Increasing Confusion or even mill based counterspells like Psychic Strike.

Optionally, you can remove the expensive non-basic lands so it's both more affordable as well as more synergy with Crypt Ghast, if you choose to get those too.

If you're playing casual 'kitchen-table', a relatively cheap combo can be the ole' Traumatize + Haunting Echoes combo. It works really well in casual formats.

Probably remove Loreseeker's Stone for "Starfield of Nyx".

Another option is to remove Psychic Strike for Muddle the Mixture, so I can transmute for Prismatic Omen. Not sure yet though, since I can find that with other cards.

Just saw the spoiler for "Starfield of Nyx" from Magic Origins. That will have to go in here, but not sure what to take out for it. Possibly Psychic Strike or Loreseeker's Stone will come out for it.

By far my two favorite mill cards are Mind Grind, Increasing Confusion. The aforementioned Mind Funeral is also great. If you want to counter spells, try Psychic Strike. Personally, I don't like Jace's Ingenuity because it's expensive, so I would add more Pilfered Plans or Thought Scours if you want draw power. They cost less mana and mill your opponent. An alternative to Aqueous Form that I run, and wins games quite often, is Artful Dodge. Its Flashback is what makes it so worthwhile. All of these cards are pretty cheap if you are on a budget. Have fun!

I was a bit hesitant to add in the Psychic Strike, but I thought about it and that's a great modification. I'm going to start a sideboard and add in the drawing cards, along with Aqueous Form and Artful Dodge.

cut Cast Through Time and szadek for Psychic Strike. that card is quality. also, you may look into Howling Mine/Font of Mythos and Jace's Erasure.

Also, I might recommend Thought Scour, Counterspell, and Smother in here if you are looking more cheap control options. Could also consider/playtest: Dimir Charm, Jace's Phantasm, Mental Misstep, Psychic Strike.

Cards like Brainstorm, Serum Visions, Ponder, Preordain all synergize well with Chasm Skulker (and the whole deck). Trepanation Blade would be good with cards like Thassa, God of the Sea and Rogue's Passage and Jace's Phantasm if you want to try to take advantage of your general.

Food for thought.
