Ravenous Trap Discussion

Reyemile on Phenax Mill Deck

A few suggestions:

Given that you're a mill deck, "on top of library" effects get extra valuable. There's a lot of them, but Commit deserves special mention for its power and low price.

If you're looking for more combos, you can toss Eater of the Dead in--that plus Phenax is often enough to kill the table. Be prepared to be a target forevermore after your first win, though!

Finally, your deck appears to straight-up lose to Kozilek, Butcher of Truth and Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre. Nihil Spellbomb, Ravenous Trap, Undead Alchemist, and Eater of the Dead (again!) are all affordable solutions to that problem.

Trapmaker's Snare helps solve the conditionality of Archive Trap. It essentially turns into a 2 mana version of Archive trap.

Of course, the card is dead if you don't have any Archive Trap's remaining in your library. You could add Ravenous Trap if that's a serious concern (just to get the ratio higher). But I honestly think it's sweet enough tech to justify the potential downside.

I think you should expect Shattering Spree out of storm. Your combo is very good against bogles, so ruining it for a 2-of Hate-piece seems counter productive. I can see the arguments for burn and lantern, but against burn at least, I think you'd want to run a card that doesn't ruin your combo, like Timely Reinforcements, (espessially since they will outo-side Destructive Revelry against you.)

As for Graveyard hate, I think Leyline of the Void, Faerie Macabre or Ravenous Trap would do fine against most matchup where your ability to combo is essential. I understnd that it can be nice against all in graveyard decks just to hit Relic of Progenitus basically all the time. But if such an all in strategy, like Dredge (just as an example) has already established a board, you'll be missing your Restore Balance I think. (Maybe you could make some sort of split that allows to to both be able to cascade into relic in some situations and keep the combo pure while still packing grave-hate in other situations.)

But if you think it works, I guess it works. It just seems weird to me.

Sorry for the late reply, Modern_Master42. It depends on the deck and the situation. With 4 Oblivion Stone in the deck, having Tormod's Crypt would be pointless. If we blow up the board but don't crack Tormod's Crypt yet then it would just be going to the grave. Not to mention that Tormod's Crypt easily dies to removal, where Ravenous Trap just needs to be countered.

Sideboard wise you need something to remove Leyline of Sanctity, I'd suggest. Echoing Truth is likely one of the best options available. Also in the sideboard, more Crypt Incursions are likely important as well as some form of combo hate, generally Surgical Extraction is the best for mill decks (and doubles as grace hate, too). Ravenous Trap is another common one I see ran in mill lists.

Wouldn't Tormod's Crypt be better than Ravenous Trap?

Good concept. I feel like the side board should build a better defense against different deck types. Maybe something for decks that like cards in their graveyards. Ravenous Trap or Scavenger Grounds maybe. And you don't really have anything to defend against whatever they do get on the board. Haunting Echoes might be a good choice too for end game.
