If only you had some red in here I'd also mention Fevered Visions which is also super fun with Sphinx's Tutelage

P.S Watch out for cards like Leyline of Sanctity and Witchbane Orb

Hey Argy - great to hear that Pioneer has brought you back to the game!

Hopefully it will stay popular and one day maybe even surpass Modern as the number one format!!

Good call on the Sphinx's Tutelage I'll try running two for now and take it from there...and the new Jace might be interesting for a "Self Milling" strategy.

Oh yeah, I always refer to the feminine with everything MtG related as a tribute to the old Unlimited Rulebooks that came with the Starter decks back in the day :D

Oh and I would think about replacing Narset, Parter of Veils with the Sphinx's Tutelage - she's not helping much with the focused goal of this deck.

I have found Lazotep Plating better than my other suggestion of Turn Aside

Are you female? I just noticed that you refer Milling a female in your deck description. You might just be using a gender neutral term. If so - good for you!

I have to learn what all the cards in the latest set do.

Fabled Passage is strictly better than the Evolving Wilds I mentioned above.

I have been testing against another Mill deck that runs Sphinx's Tutelage - I forgot how good that card is for Mill. You may want to consider a playset.

Quicken is in for Merfolk Secretkeeper and Startled Awake  Flip but mostly...it just draws. 16 lands does seem low, but I'm running a very similiar build in standard, and that works like a charm :) Sphinx's Tutelage is a great card, but too slow for the deck this'll mill you out in 6 turns max.

Hey king-saproling!

Kederekt Parasite is definitely really good, and you've kind of convinced me on it.

With regard to what I took out, I decided that even though Dissipation Field does nonbo with Spiteful Visions , that it provides enough of disincentive for people attacking me that I'm okay with it. I also left Nin, the Pain Artist and Niv-Mizzet, Parun in the deck as they are really powerful cards which can jump me ahead a lot. With all of the duel lands I have, I have never been unable to cast Niv, and I also just think that Nin is good since she lets me sink mana into her if I don't have to counter something after a turn cycle. Lastly, I left in The Magic Mirror as it can provide a lot of card draw and value, and most of the time, I can cast it for not that much.

I did end up taking out Kess, Dissident Mage , Bone Miser , Prosperity , and Sphinx's Tutelage though. I agree with you on Sphinx's as it really only feels good in a 1v1 for mill. Kess and Bone Miser both felt like a mana sink which I always felt bad about since they only mildly synergize with the rest of my cards and require a lot of investment up front. Lastly, Prosperity just never felt as good as a wheel since everyone gets to hold their cards except for me.

Thanks again for all your help!
