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.

PhoenixNest on Mill Deck

Tome Scour, Jace's Phantasm and a few other cards are not legal in standard. You can make this a Modern deck though

I think if you are going to draw a lot of cards, you're going to need more mana. I think Kiora's Follower is probably about as good as you can get playing budget Simic. I suggest running 6 or more mana dorks.

A few spells to consider:

Unblockable: Invisible Stalker, Silhana Ledgewalker

Mill: Jace's Erasure, Tome Scour, Manic Scribe, Hedron Crab

Draw Card/Tutor: Harmonize, Temple Bell

Removal: Imprisoned in the Moon, Pongify, Beast Within, Lignify

Land: Reliquary Tower, Buried Ruin

Non-Combat Damage: Throne of the God-Pharaoh

shrapnel_ on A Dreadful Reanimation

Have you thought about graveyard loading from your library instead of your hand? Creatures like Wailing Ghoul and Necromancer's Assistant could act like chump blockers while helping you load your graveyard for a reanimate. Maybe even Millikin.

Also if you go that route you could splash with blue and load it really fast with cards like Tome Scour, Dream Twist, and Contingency Plan.

Might help you load faster and reduce mulligans.

Day's Undoing shuffles your GY back into your library. Here’s some ideas you could use: Fraying Sanity (and Traumatize is a combo with it Sanity out), Tome Scour, Hedron Crab, Jace's Phantasm. Also, drop Powerstone Shard. It’s not good enough for modern.

Welcome to Tapped Out!

  • From what I gather is that you're going for a mill intensive B/U(Dimir) deck?
  • How cheap(budget) are we talking about?

Thought Scour | Tome Scour | Horrifying Revelation | Hedron Crab | Fraying Sanity | Drowner Initiate | Dimir Charm | Dream Twist | Compelling Argument | Cathartic Adept | Breaking // Entering | Jace's Erasure | Memory Erosion | Memory Sluice | Mind Funeral | Nemesis of Reason

These are all under $10, I would also invest in having 3 to 4 copies of a number of these.

i run a similar list and find that just big butts with no real abilities just don't make the cut. I'd recommend droping Hover Barrier for the incredibly powerful Eater of the Dead, which pretty much goes infinite with Phenax as long as there's a few creatures in each players graveyard. I'd also drop Staff of the Mind Magus and Tome Scour for Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots to get combos going faster, I've often found I wont even play out my combo pieces without at least one of these two cards available to me. I also like the Traumatize with either Fraying Sanity or Keening Stone combo for the mill out, might be worth fitting those cards in as well. overall a really fun deck to pilot especially 1v1, if you can make it work it's an incredibly satisfying win
