The deck is alot of fun so far. I've had success in smaller games of EDH like 1v1 or 3 person matches. When I go against three others there seem to be more answers. That being said I feel like I can spring back from board wipes okay and this deck does really really well late game once graveyards are populated by my effects.

In terms of my advice when playing this deck or any mill deck is to have alternative ways to win. Like Tree of Perdition or Hinder + Tunnel Vision / Spell Crumple . Eater of the Dead can also instant win some games if there is enough graveyard fodder,.

Hey ssymbiotic, thanks for the comment. It's not rude and a fair point. I suppose I should remove that bit in my description. The more expensive cards were ones I already had. My idea with looking for suggestions were finding ways to improve the synergy and flow of this deck with some new cards if they fit better. Thanks for pointing that out though, I'll fix it.

Ruffigan, Fair point on Jace's Archivist . I think that can combo really well. My idea for Spell Crumple and Hinder was to pair that with Tunnel Vision and make someone mill all their deck in one fell swoop. Undead Alchemist could create alot of blockers so that I can stay in the game longer, a great suggestion.

Undead Alchemist would be good, makes you Zombies and synergizes with Altar of the Brood . Arcane Denial could replace Spell Crumple and Swan Song could replace Hinder . Jace's Archivist would be a good creature to use with all of your untap abilities.

Oh well, for many reasons conchorizo.

Hinder lets you counter target spell and, if it's countered this way, to put it on top or bottom of that player's library. In itself this is pretty good control, since you could screw up decks that rely on top deck manipulation or graveyard decks, since the card doesn't hit the graveyard (even though in this case a Dissipate / Void Shatter would be even better).

Most importantly, however, Hinder , like Spell Crumple , by putting the countered spell on the bottom of your opponent's library, lets you combo with Tunnel Vision to mill their deck out. It's explained a bit better in this deck's description under Fantastic combos and where to find them.

As a last point, Hinder has a really cool full-art version and I couldn't avoid such pimping. Here it is in its glory: Hinder . Much better than the original to me.

click the spell combos above to see how they work, but yes Spin into Myth + Tunnel Vision is a third card combo you could consider, so maybe add Spin into Myth along with Spell Crumple & Hinder , add all 3 of them. if you are able to grab Tunnel Vision out of your graveyard to reuse it more than once, you have 3 spells to kill your 3 opponents the same way with.

I agree Hinder + Tunnel Vision or Spell Crumple + Tunnel Vision = target opponent has 1 card left in their library. I have this combo in my mill deck. for redundency I also have Spell Crumple which is just a second copy of Hinder so get both Hinder and Spell Crumple into the deck. I suggest cutting Jace Beleren . his ultimate is good, but don't bank on reaching it, it takes 7 turns, so its really slow, not sure what else to cut.

Oh yeah rshistorysmuf, I literally have an EDH deck that tries to do that as one of the wincons!

For it I used Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Hinder , Spell Crumple , Junktroller ... But there are many others!
