You'd think so but I tried with 2 and didn't like it as much. I lets me reset my deck to try and combo off again way too easily.
I'll try going down 1 again for another Thought Scour I guess.
Awesome deck! Just wondering, why add in Dragon Throne of Tarkir when the goal of the deck is to mill? Would you consider replacing it with 2x Thought Scour instead (for a little bit more card draw)? Or could just mainboard 2x Psychic Strike for better control.
I'd also mainboard 4x Archive Trap (Card works so well because people will likely be using fetches so you can abuse it. I've also seen Archive Trap work with Ghost Quarter Which in itself is a decent card against decks that rely on specific land, also you can do the legendary ghost quarter then cast 4 Archive Trap , proceed to end turn while the opponent has one card in deck.
Maybe side Leyline of the Void against graveyard decks?
Darkslick Shores Maybe helpful in the mana-base?
Hopefully this was helpful, just giving my opinions and trying to help out. :)
Thanks for the feedback. I think you are right about judge's familar. I was unaware of that card's existance. The fact that it has flying can also allow it to initiate the combo. I just recently added green into the deck for mana ramping and digging through the deck with Ancient Stirrings and Commune with Nature . I will also consider putting Thought Scour in somewhere.
I'd say use Judge's Familiar
instead of Cursecatcher
and I'd also add Fabricate
for more reliability in getting Mindcrank
. I'd also have 4 of Mindcrank
, since it is an all or nothing combo deck. Finally, I'd put in some mill spells. At this rate, you'd have to wait until you have 7 mana available, which is only accelerated by Birds of Paradise
. I would add Tome Scour
, Dream Twist
, or Thought Scour
, just to get the combo started earlier. Thoughtscour would be your best bet since it is also a cantrip.
Haha, great. "No Budget", of course, would probably land around the "high cost" decks, say $500-$2,000 (big range, really depends on the build). Unless you play Vintage (DON'T), then we're looking at $40,000+. In that case, keep the Ruins, but also add 4x Watery Grave s and 4x Polluted Delta in place of 5x Swamp and 3x Island. Also, take out 1x Swamp for 1x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth . With little to no drawbacks, Urborg is a great way to ensure you get the black mana you need. Follow all the suggestions above. Here is a decklist I just made of the main idea of the deck. You can implement your favorite features and such, but this is the basic build. Also, be sure to test out your deck online and stuff before you buy using the blue "Playtest" button to the left. Make sure this is the deck you want to play because its not cheap. I also forgot to mention that Snapcaster Mage is really great in this type of deck, as it allows you to reuse your mill spells. Trapmaker's Snare acts like a "fifth" Archive Trap , as it helps you find it. Next week, hopefully if I have time and you still need help, I can help you get a sideboard going. Sideboards are essential in keeping a competitive edge against your opponent, and this UB mill deck is not different. Hope this helps. Now, to the decklist!! Land (21) 2x Darkslick Shores 4x Ghost Quarter 4x Island 4x Polluted Delta 1x Shelldock Isle 1x Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth 1x Swamp 4x Watery Grave Creature (7) 4x Hedron Crab 3x Snapcaster Mage Planeswalker (2) 2x Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver Instant (19) 4x Archive Trap 1x Crypt Incursion 3x Darkness 4x Surgical Extraction 3x Thought Scour 1x Trapmaker's Snare 3x Visions of Beyond Sorcery (11) 3x Breaking 1x Damnation 4x Glimpse the Unthinkable 3x Mind Funeral
Just the other day, I was playing against a Boros Soldier deck. I had milled a bunch of his lands with Thought Scour , so when I played Mind Funeral the next turn, he milled about 30 cards before finding 4 land. Then I Crypt Incursion him for 30 life, and exile most of his threats.
