That makes sense. I did end up ordering the cards, so I'll let you know if I make any other changes that work well over the next few weeks.

The other thought that I had was potentially adding Sadistic Sacrament to deal with any graveyard hate before it ever comes onto the battlefield. I've used it effectively early game to counter cards like Bojuka Bog .

Yeah THCue is right. Wheel of Sun and Moon is a replacement effect. Nothing is hitting the graveyard.

Removal can include things like Bitter Ordeal (already mentioned), Sadistic Sacrament , Nightmare Incursion , Jester's Cap , Praetor's Grasp , Cranial Extraction , and counterspells in general would handle the card. Nevinyrral's Disk can get Wheel back into their library and off the field. There are other exile cards from library effects but those are pretty good ones I listed in my opinion. Cranial might be a better bet in case it's in their hand.

Black and blue can't do a whole lot against enchantments and artifacts once they're out besides maybe bouncing them to hand with blue?

Wake of Destruction is a maybe but Nightmare Incursion is definitely staying. I've exiled 15+ cards with. Not to mention adding Sadistic Sacrament on top of it for those that decide to incur Rakdos' wrath early haha. I am looking at AEther Snap as it has been underwhelming as of late. Even though on paper the card is insanely good. Everlasting Torment is another that I haven't cared for. It's in there for the "damage can't be prevented" aspect, but that just hasn't mattered recently. Not to mention I have other instant speed sources. I like the idea and am willing to try it out king-saproling. Thanks for the comment man!

Lordoflard The good news is that you don't have to cast it for its kicker cost, you can just play it normally and it'll exile three cards from the opponent's library: you'll want to exile their Laboratory Maniac and their Lightning Storm , and any one other card. You can easily make space in your deck by removing Infinite Obliteration , which can only exile one of those targets.

Obviously, Sadistic Sacrament is the superior choice, because they can still combo off after an Infinite Obliteration by using a win condition you didn't name.

Funkydiscogod I thought about adding Sadistic Sacrament . But it only removes 3 cards without paying the kicker cost. U will never get off the kicker cost off since ad nauseam decks win by turn 3.

check out Glimpse the Unthinkable and Archive Trap , those two are pet cards for me in any mill deck. Another good one, but more situational is Sadistic Sacrament , its fantastic for tearing apart a combo deck. Also Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is great once your mill engine is online.

I consider to add Perpetual Timepiece as draw engine and to recover the cards in case of exile I have in my deck Praetor's Grasp and Sadistic Sacrament . I think very good card to remove players, not by killing them but removing key cards for combo.

Demarge on Your silliest wins ever?

If you follow CEDH it is rare for a game to end in just normal dmg and it's common for combos to bring about the win, like for instance imprinting Isochron Scepter with Dramatic Reversal and generating infinite mana with my mana dorks and mana rocks then activating my Tasigur, the Golden Fang until all my deck is either in my graveyard or in my hand then using Sadistic Sacrament and tasigur's ability to exile my opponent's libraries. then pass turn.

but in terms of silly wins I once kicked a Rite of Replication on an opponent's Bringer of the Black Dawn then using all those tutor triggers I stacked my deck to build a complete lockout of the game while the army of 5/5s beat down.
