Surge Mare Discussion

Keeping some creatures in your sideboard could help against aggro. Surge Mare can eat most burn spells, kill small creatures, trade with somewhat larger ones, or swing into a empty board if you want to loot, and Wall of Mist is just as bulky, but has no utility. Diligent Excavator can help you mill, and Vodalian Arcanist is a mana dork, but they both die to Lightning Strike.

Why not Millstone? It's in M19, so it's standard legal. Also, I would go with about 2 extra land and more counter spells. Two additional land to power cards like Mill Stone and Surge Mare. To make room, you can cut back a bit on creatures, then add cards like Essence Scatter and Negate.
I disagree that Tempest Djinn has no place in a mill deck-- you need another way to win. However, I don't think your deck needs more creatures. Rather, I think you can trim Wall of Mist and either (both?) Omenspeaker or Dimir Informant.
Oh, a less expensive (money cost, not mana cost) version of Mission Briefing is Flood of Recollection. It's sorcery speed instead of instant speed, but same mana cost and does the same thing. It also only costs pennies.
Cool deck idea! +1 from me!

I recommend replacing Wall of Mist with Surge Mare. It's the same mana cost as Wall of Mist, but comes with some avoidance from green and card draw to go with your Psychic Corrosion.

Yeah, replacing the Wall of Mist with Surge Mare makes sense because you're mono blue so the UU is basically the same as the 1U, and the Mare is strictly better than the Wall. I suppose you do have the Riverwise Augur's so you might not also need Omenspeaker's. I guess you can decide if you need it after some testing. Looks like a really nice deck, though. I haven't seen anything like it before. Do you know how it compares to other budget (or non Budget) Standard decks?

Still gotta see what Ravnica brings us...
Obviously we won't have anything but Ixalan on up, so Amonkhet and Kaladesh cards are not to be included. I'm waiting for some of them juicy Ravnica spoilers to be revealed though because if the deck is going to work we need something from that set to fit it. Especially more draw triggerers.
Mystic Archaeologist is nice.
Been contemplating The Immortal Sun but at 6 mana it's kind of steep for what is basically a Dictate of Kruphix effect for this deck. It's obviously a powerful card though and does wonders against decks utilizing planeswalkers though it's vulnerable to eat removal right away.
Curator's Ward gives your Enchantments some removal protection. Not used for the draw clause but if you get use out of it all the better.
So far if you're not playing some form of hybrid control mill it's just not going to work. Play corrosion/rebuilding combo, kill everything or control everything, and draw your way to victory. Not enough draw triggers currently though.
And as for control mill that's not what I want to do though. I want a mill deck not a control deck with secondary mill. You end up doing more controlling than milling and if you’re going to focus on control then you would be better served to just have a beater creature finish them off the normal way.
Other Ideas I've contemplated for this mill deck;
Riverwise Augur + Naban, Dean of Iteration is a nice little ETB combo. Draw 6 cards mill 12 off their deck. Set up your next 4 draws. Allows you to get more from other ETB effects too paired with a Naban. Like Skyscanner and Silvergill Adept. Especially if using cards like Siren's Ruse to bounce and repeat the ETB effects. This is not very good but it is a different route to go.
Nezahal, Primal Tide punishes them for playing any Noncreature spell. It's costly though and I don't see it fitting in our curve.

I am a big fan of tribal decks and horses are hilarious, plus you just got a bunch more recently: Crested Sunmare, Diamond Mare, Lightning Mare, Surge Mare, Plague Mare, Shield Mare, Vine Mare, Dusk Charger, and Nightmare.
