Talent of the Telepath Discussion

Hyperalgialysis on Blue Magic

You need to change the format to modern, a couple nice cards to include would be Talent of the Telepath Thought Scour Tome Scour Mind Sculpt Altar of the Brood. If you run Altar of the Brood Trail of Evidence gets pretty out of control since it forces mill and refills your hand. If you want to speed the deck up adding black givea you Breaking / Entering Glimpse the Unthinkable Mind Funeral and an alternative way to win with Duskmantle Guildmage.

Hyperalgialysis on Mill by JaeHoshii

I agree whole heartedly with thode above adding black would be better, as would doing what LeaPlath suggested with the alterations. However, do not fear, it is possible to play mill on a budget. Trail of Evidence can do wonders for you, especially if paired with Altar of the Brood. I made a budget mill deck, that consists of 4 each of the following: Trail of Evidence Altar of the Brood Thought Scour Mind Sculpt Tome Scour Talent of the Telepath Jace's Phantasm Fog Bank Disperse Mana Leak. Now it isn't some super mill deck, and it doesnt shut down like harcore modern strategies that can easily kill you in 3-6 turns. It will win a fair amount of games for you, and if you play more kitchen table magic would probably be just fine. You can modify it to your needs, I didn't have Sphinx's Tutelage when I made it. If you are wondering why Trail of Evidence, it refills your hand when you need it to and puts permanents into play for Altar of the Brood hopefully this will help some good luck.

Drop Talent of the Telepath (slow), Startled Awake  Flip (slow and expensive), Jace's Mindseeker (doesn't do enough) and Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker (slow and expensive); and put in 4x Glimpse the Unthinkable, and 3x Breaking. Your creatures are mana demanding, make your mill spells max out for the cost.

You may even want to consider dropping Siren Stormtamer for Dispel, Turn Aside or Remand.

Also, Duskmantle Guildmage infinites out with Mindcrank. ;-)

Well, I think that your deck is good :)But I'll write smthing. I play Phenax for 2 years. My advices is to play with friends (so it's multi 40hp, ur opponents know ur deck and u know their). I really like playing with graveyards. So Diluvian Primordial is rly strong (u can cast Obliterate from one grave and indestructible from another :) ). Blue leyline is nice too. U can think about something like Bribery/Preators Grasp/Sadistic Sacrament, cos ur opponents can have in decks Ulamogs etc, u can take it and play or just exile it (or u can take Teferi's Protection and def ur self but with those spells u need few others lands with any/opponent mana). And, ofc if u know their decks well, u know what they have in their hands :DBoots with haste are very usefull, especially with Eater of the Dead (TOTALLY MUST HAVE). Look at New blue Gearhulk, Mindcrank and Black Ascension (it's combo, but those cards are good alone). Talent of the Telepath is funny card (u can play Army of the Damned in 4th turn :D) and i love it, but it's soooo rng.Altar of Dementia is great if u control opponent creature (u cast Goad all creatures with Blue Prmiordial from ur opponent grave, attack/mill with them and sacrifice all) or u can def with ur creature, tap for mill and sacrifice. Very, very strong with Consuming Aberration.Well, i dont like Altar of the Brood, pref Mesmeric Orb. Few strong cards: Dimir Doppelganger (Boardwipe. U can mill ur self, use his ability on Eater of the Death and its almost gg :) ). And i dont have Traumatize. Huge aggro-card in multi :/. And think about cards like Phyrexian arena/Thasa for draw :)Thats all, sorry for my sucking english ;)
