MattyPatty on Predatory Mill

I would cut Radical Idea For Enter the God-Eternals , more mill + removal + lifegain + 4/4. Cut one Chemister's Insight to add another Drowned Secrets , Then use Vraska's Contempt in the sideboard instead of Murder if budget is not a problem. Definitely add more lands, 21 is way too low, 23 at least.

zigkid3 Thanks for letting me know! I didn't remember seeing it on the ban list but I went back to check and you are correct! It has been replaced by Radical Idea

Use Radical Idea over Anticipate because Jump Start and it will trigger Psychic Corrosion where as Anticipate does not.
Check out Predatory Mill for more good ideas.

This deck makes me LOL. I would use Radical Idea over Opt .

I would suggest using Radical Idea over Opt because of Jump-start, better draw and mill synergy with Drowned Secrets .

Quillcusion i understand compeltely, you don't have to change the color of the deck since Saheeli, Sublime Artificer is hybrid colors so you can just cast her for 1UU. So staying in blue/black, you could also or possibly make their life miserable by playing Disinformation Campaign and Discovery / Dispersal for extra salt. You could also play a couple life gain cards main or the side if you have trouble with aggro decks like Moment of Craving . Cheap card draw can be Radical Idea , Tyrant's Scorn is also a great option for you to either kill everything at 3 mana and less or bounce a creature to give you time to set up but also trigger your enchantments. Cry of the Carnarium could also be in the deck to get the aggro creatures or Ritual of Soot to add to you having at least 4 sweepers. Also most of those cards i named are budget cards ;-)

Opt is good, but provides no value for milling or when milled. Radical Idea , however, has a similar effect, and can be played from your graveyard.

cdkime on Improvement for challenger deck

I'd probably replace the 4x Crackling Drake with 4x Delver of Secrets  Flip. Delver might not draw cards or grow incredibly powerful, but it can swing for 3 on turn 2, making it one of the most powerful 1-drops in the game.

Rather than cut opt, I'd consider cutting Chart a Course and Radical Idea . Between the 4x Opt and 4x Brainstorm you'll probably have enough card draw.

Goblin Electromancer is pretty mediocre in this deck, particularly if you're cutting cards that require generic mana. I'd consider adding a few copies of Young Pyromancer to the mix.

Snapcaster Mage is a solid card, budget permitting.

Counterspell is a solid option in blue decks, or its less budget-friendly friends like Force of Will and Mana Drain . I'd probably try to make room for 8 or so counters--Blue and red don't do so well with enchantments or larger creatures, so it's important to prevent them from hitting the board in the first place.
