Psychic Strike Discussion

Hexcimal on MILL is the word

6 hours ago

Nemesis of Reason is a great card for both milling and blocking, though the newer and more expensive Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger works in nearly the same way. Also consider replacing Thought Scour for Breaking / Entering instead; sure it looks strange using only one side of a fuse card (unless you want to challenge yourself with a bit of red splash), but it's more mill-per-mana. Brilliant decision with Archive Trap, with tutoring and fetch lands ruining rampant works every time.

Decks like these often run into problems against burn, infect (though you've partially remedied this with Fog Bank), well.. quite a few unfortunately. Sideboard should help with either more control when needed (Psychic Strike and Surgical Extraction come to mind), or if you did choose to fix a manabase with some red splash (though it looks like you went budget with your lands), then you can sideboard some burn for when you really need it (Pyroclasm or similar works well for token and weenie control while keeping most of your already-limited supply of creatures alive, Terminate also always works so nicely). Anyways, I hope this helps a bit. Of course they're all just suggestions, feel free to disregard any (or all) of it.

Hmm I tweaked the deck a bit, and it looks like this:

Granted, it is pricier than your original build, but I did my best to keep it under $100. Basically, it still focus on the mill that you want, with maintaining Jace's Phantasm to beat at their face, which is why I save the Psychic Strike or if they scry and/or place something on top, I would use the Dimir Charm, the Languish provides boardwipe and still keeping the Jace's Phantasm alive and continue to beat their face in, longer game you can use Nighthowler on them for more punishment.

However, I will mention that this deck is my take on your playstyle with this deck.

Thought Scour is definitely on the list! Only problem is around where i am there aren't many avaiable, so im ordering them online. Codex Shredder was just a cheap recommended card, i use it as a filler.. but id be happy to replace them with Psychic Strike and Dimir Charm. What should i replace Chronic Flooding and Curse of the Bloody Tome with? Oh, and I can't afford More Hedron Crab, Surgical Extraction or Extirpate just yet, but they will definitely come with time

Malloup - First, you should double bracket your deck slug so people can click the link! Next, you are ambitious in your attempt to make a lifegain and mill deck, however... I think you should try to focus on one of those instead of trying to do both. In my experience, mill only works if you devote the whole deck to doing that. I would cut out most or all of the white in your deck and go black/blue. There are so many good cards for mill in black/blue. You should go for a full playset of Sphinx's Tutelage because multiple copies of that win games. Throw in some Dictate of Kruphix to increase card draw. I would swap out Countermand for Psychic Strike. It's a more efficient counter for 3 mana. You should also add Pilfered Plans and Fascination. In combo with Sphinx's Tutelage they are game changers. If you need creatures to hold off an assault, I would reccomend Fathom Feeder, Master of the Feast, and Salvage Drone as they help eliminate cards from your opponent's library! Lastly, you should consider Jace, Memory Adept as he is THE mill planeswalker. Good luck with your deck!

For creatures, I like to have 4x Hedron Crab, perhaps take out -2 Wight of Precinct Six. Having 4x Thought Scour is also good, I feel like that card should be an auto-include in most mill deck, just for the cantrip at the end of an opponent's turn (end phase). Personally, when I play mill, I find that Chronic Flooding & Curse of the Bloody Tome are too slow, granted that you are playing on a budget, but I would go for 3-4x Mind Funeral, another Languish for that board control/wipe when your Hedron Crabs can't chump anymore. Maybe 1 more Psychic Strike and/or Dimir Charm for the purpose of saying, "No".

Still not too sure why Codex Shredder is there, personally I would go for a Extirpate or Surgical Extraction to take out very specific key cards or use Infinite Obliteration if you know what decks they are playing. Mind Grind is a really fun card when you're playing with green ramp or multiplayer.

Also, yeah, Phenax, God of Deception is slow when you're playing modern, but during the Innistrad, Ravnica, and Theros blocks, man, he was so good.

As much as I really like Psychic Strike (and have several of), I can't find it in my willpower to put them in here!

Perhaps take out one Psychic Spiral. The first is just in cast my graveyard gets removed and I need a shuffle to reload the library. The second is the game ender. I never use the first so there's one replacement, but what else?

I ran a variant of this deck tonight at FNM. Check back tomorrow for the update.

Crypt Incursion is in the sideboard and I will add the sideboard list to this update as well. The sideboard is incomplete as I'm relatively new at building them for the Modern meta.

Egredere, et vincere!

Psychic Strike is a decent card for dimir decks, I'd say at least worth to side board. I see you already have Profane Memento, Crypt Incursion is also great for life gain. This deck seems very solid, just thought I would throw you some suggestions. Hope you find them helpful!
