Moving away a bit from high cost ramp, mill, and limited effect draw/discard.

  1. Burning Inquiry->Skyscribing
  2. Gilded Lotus->Worn Powerstone
  3. Horn of Greed->Viseling
  4. Sphinx's Tutelage->Curse of the Swine
  5. Vision Skeins->Minds Aglow

Hi DrkNinja! I really don't like cards like Fascination and Skyscribing, you need to spent too much mana, a "wheel" is strictly better. But, if you like those type of cards, try Minds Aglow and Prosperity.

I think the weakest cards in the deck are probably Dreadwaters and Chant of the Skifsang. Rather than waiting until turn 5 or 7 for Dreadwaters to be as good as Tome Scour or Mind Sculpt, I'd want recurring mill triggers from a creature. Hedron Crab is the go-to option, but Manic Scribe could be built around too. As for the Chant, you could use a Commit, Anchor to the Aether, or something to that effect to put threats onto an opponent's library and immediately mill them. If you're worried about cards you don't want in graveyards, Surgical Extraction is a tech option. I'd definitely mainboard Visions of Beyond over Divination since it will almost always give you more resources for less mana. An interesting alternative is Skyscribing since it forces the opponent to draw from their thinning deck while interacting favorably with Sphinx's Tutelage. Finally, I'd look at including some Ghost Quarters. The card is just good in general, but it really gets nasty with Archive Trap.

Two sets of cards for you. This first set is exactly what you asked for:

Azure Mage, Diviner's Wand, Prophet of Distortion, Sphinx of Magosi, Treasure Trove

This set is almost what you asked for and can work depending on what exactly you are doing:

Book of Rass, Carnage Altar, Compulsion, Mesmeric Trance, Mental Discipline, Skyscribing

Holy crap guys, I haven't replied to your comments in a minute. I apologize for that but let's get to it now...

What you're saying about allowing combo players to combo out quicker can be true, onehitterquiter, but it also means that people can get to their spot removal, counter spells and board wipes quicker too. Plus, if you're playing this in your playgroup, the scummiest of players are probably not invited anyway. If you're playing at a LGS, it could be a problem, but the few times I've played this deck at a game store, it hasn't been an issue. People usually roll with it and have a good time.

bushido_man96, LOL.

This is the deck of mine that gets the most attention, aquacode, but it's only one of ten or eleven decks I play, so it doesn't come up in the rotation that often. Honestly, I play it way less than people want me to. I can't decide if they want me to play it because it's fun or because they know it's one less opponent they have to worry about. /;-)

Minds Aglow would take some serious collaboration to pull off, shadowfrost. The cards I do have to be concerned about though are Prosperity and Skyscribing, those two are actually used as win conditions in a lot of hug decks. I usually use Prosperity for X=3 or something fairly small, and usually use Skyscribing only for it's Forecast ability.

Actually IAmTheWraith, the last game I played (not with this deck though) was won by someone playing a Laboratory Maniac combo, don't remind me. /:-(

Thanks for the +1, Nillstan. If you do build this deck, let me know if you and your group have as much fun with it as I do.

I made a decision from the get-go that I didn't want a win-con in this deck, Smalls2004, so while I know of a number of cards I could include in the deck to win, I've never considered it. I have a number of other decks I play to win with, but not this one.

As I said above,1astrokid1, I'm not looking for a win condition with this deck and mana is hardly ever a problem for anyone at the table after the first few turns, so Freed from the Real wouldn't be worth the card slot.

I've heard from many people who have hug decks that look to win, garrukhunter98, but it's just not the way I wanted this decks to play. Believe me when I say I understand that this is a hard concept for a lot of people to grasp. If you look back at some of the comments for this deck, most of which I've archived in order to make this a more readable page, there are a lot of people who just don't get it, and that's alright, people should play decks that make them happy. This one makes me the happiest of all of my EDH decks when I play it. I'll play a card like Rites of Flourishing or Upwelling, and people will laugh and say, "Hell Yeah". It does my heart good to see less salt at the EDH table.

Day's Undoing, Skyscribing, or Vision Skeins are good possible replacements for that card.
