SentinelElf2711 on Competitive UB mill modern (2018)

TheSurgeon Hi, thank for the comment: 1) Search for azcanta is a very good card, bc allows you to select your draws late game. It is not a card for early game:this is why I play it 1x. 2) Drowned Secrets In my opinion is a very bad card, bc if you draw it late game is a "dead draw", azcanta is superior on it bc if u think at it: both two do nothing when enters in batter field, but azcanta gain value every turn (both early and late game) butDrowned Secrets in useless late game. 3) Putting Ensnaring Bridge in main or sb depends from the local meta, so maybe your are right, if there are not aggro decks in your local meta :) 4 I tested Thought Scour in my deck a lot, but you simply don't need it, is a cc1 cycle 1 mill 2. So I prefer invest one mana in something else, like Visions of Beyond, you don't need too mutch draws in mill, expecially bc you have Ensnaring Bridge. So I am considering the idea of put in the deck 2x of Collective Brutality. 4) Tome Scour is a bad card too, is good only if u want a budget list. I don't recommend to think to build a strategy with Drowned Secrets. If you like enchants I recommend you to build a Fraying Sanity budget deck :) Hope this answer to your questions. Anyways, thanks for the advices :) P.S. Sorry for my English :)

Search for Azcanta  Flip doesn't belong here. For 2 you should be milling, not waiting. You say mill is aggressive.. but you're going to waste time and resources on an enchantment that does nothing for your archetype and makes your deck $20 more? Consider Drowned Secrets for replacement.

As for Ensnaring Bridge, it belongs in the sb. Full throttle game 1. Allow more room for more mill speed, perhaps Thought Scours or simple Tome Scours to synergize with Drowned Secrets?

Hope this helps a bit.

I gather its intended to be a tool for surveil lists, but Mission Briefing Delver of Secrets  Flip and Thought Scour should play well with it. Heck, I'm a little tempted to brew a Raven's Crime/Flame Jab/Maximize Velocity/Radical Idea/Life from the Loam list with it.

You make blue mana well enough, why no Logic Knot, good synergy with the Thought Scours and massive number of instants/sorceries. Seems like it would at least replace a copy of Mana Leak!

I feel like Kess, dissident mage would just be a better commander for this deck overall. If you're going for Storm as a win condition, you'd benefit from a lot of 1 or 2 mana draw spells such as: - Ponder - Opt - Frantic Search (3 mana, but it pays for itself) - Gitaxian Probe - Faithless Looting - Impulse - Serum Visions - Thought Scour

Cards that make instant/sorcery cards cheaper such as: - Baral, Chief of Compliance - primal amulet - Jace's Sanctum - Nightscape Familiar - Sapphire Medallion, Ruby Medallion, and Jet Medallion - Arcane Melee (This one does benefit all players, not just you)

Instants and Sorceries that give you mana, or cards that pay for themselves: - Dark Ritual - Cabal Ritual - Dark Petition - Seething Song - Desperate Ritual - Pyretic Ritual - Priest of Urabrask - Rewind - Unwind

Cards that copy your instants and sorceries: - Thousand-Year Storm - Swarm Intelligence - Dual Casting - Increasing Vengeance - Doublecast - The Mirari Conjecture (Also recurs instants/sorceries from your graveyard, which, while is nice, isn't really that helpful as Kess (if you make her your commander) can just cast them from your graveyard anyway).

Some cards that are just very good in Kess decks should you switch to her: - Increasing Vengeance - Increasing Ambition - Entomb - Forbidden Alchemy - Intuition - Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip - Mizzix's Mastery - Past in Flames

i think the Walking Ballista is better than hangerback in here.

Have you thought about Thought Scour to help fuel your graveyard for Grim Flayer and Tasigur.

Liliana, the Last Hope is good in the side if you have any.

More board-wipes in the side think would be good since your going control.

Surgical Extraction would be good in the side

Traverse the Ulvenwald really good if you go more into your graveyard since you have Grim Flayers

Vraska, Relic Seeker is a good walker you may like

I think you may want of have a copy of Natural State in this deck, as it hits the main two worst stax pieces for the combo, Sphere of Resistance and Torpor Orb, as well as Damping Matrix, but no one runs Damping Matrix. If you see some Blood Pod, though it won't hit Pod, it does work against many of their cards from Rule of Law/Eidolon of Rhetoric to some of the prior mentioned stax pieces, all at instant speed for a single .

I would most likely drop Thought Scour, because that card is the worst cantrip in the deck and only really is useful for Laboratory Maniac.

Thx for the upvote :). Manamorphose is nice and can give some explosive turns w/ prowess/Thing/Myth Realized, but I prefer Thought Scour and Faithless Looting because they each have potential to put 3 spells in the gy (including themselves after they resolve) for a single mana as opposed to 2 mana with Manamorphose, not to mention both are better at digging through your deck in a vacuum. I don't think it's bad, but I don't think I'd take it over either of those cards either.

But while I say all those things, the biggest reason I didn't include it was because it's expensive, as this is a budget deck (I know TiTi and Bedlam Reveler are both $5 now, but they were cheaper when I made the deck). I might test it out at some point, if I remember to once I have time.
