Traumatize Discussion

Darkite on Competitive Modern Mill

Yeah i get that feeling a lot. My friends used to play magic a lot (and this was a while ago when I had absolutely no deck building strategy whatsoever) then i started including Mind Sculpt and Traumatize in my deck, and I think i actually Traumatized them a wee bit. Looking back at it now, it really isn't fun to be milled, unless you have an emra un cool in your deck and don't care, or you are a dredge deck to an extent. Maybe they could print a "fun" mill card that isn't as invasive as you say. I just think that, as one of the "core" win-cons of the entire GAME(0hp, mill, infect, triggers), they should show it some love and explore it more.

Withered Wretch and Scrabbling Claws are useful for maintaining control over your opponent's graveyard.

Traumatize and Glimpse the Unthinkable are nice, if you're looking to put some money out.

Saw this on Reddit. Looks like a fun deck! Oona is particularly spicy. :)

Cards I think are your flex spots:
Royal Assassin
Mind Sculpt - 1v1 card
Traumatize - 1v1 card
Tragic Slip - Conditional removal
Sudden Spoiling - Temporary 1 to 1 effect

More cards to consider:
Solemn Simulacrum - Ramp, Draw
Beacon of Unrest - Reanimate
Ponder - Draw, Deck Manipulation
Brainstorm - Draw, Deck Manipulation
Preordain - Draw, Deck Manipulation
Windfall - Draw, Mill
Toxic Deluge - Board Wipe
Decree of Pain - Board Wipe, Draw
Rite of Replication - Army in a can
Sire of Stagnation - Draw, Mill
Rapid Hybridization - Unconditional removal
Pongify - Unconditional removal

Would welcome your feedback as you keep playing this. My deck is brand spanking new too:Lazav Mirrors and Thievery

Let me know what you think.

itachi45- Traumatize is a terrible card. Period.

It costs 5, and only Mills half the opponent's deck, so it will NEVER be a game ending play. By the time I get to play it, I pay to mill ~15 cards and lose all control over the board for the turn.

Sorry, but there's no way I'm putting it any mill deck- ever.

Traumatize does target the opponent, sure. But... it does make things easier!

Hey nice deck. Just wanted to give a quick suggestion to remove Traumatize because it's one of the worst mill spells in a fast deck like this. When you get to 5 lands, which realistically won't be turn 5(you run 20), you will have already casted a number of mill spells. This makes Traumatize significantly worse, since it'll only mill about 15 cards at best. Also there's the fact that it can't actually kill an opponent because "half" on the card is rounded down and it gets worse the more spells you play.

I'd strongly recommend Brainstorm. It may only net you one extra card, but the three draw triggers are absolutely brutal. If you want to branch out a little bit, Traumatize, Hedron Crab and Thought Reflection may also compliment this deck.

Also, I'd personally add at least some form of counterspell, Remand, Negate and Essence Scatter are all good choices.

I definitely thought about Traumatize I ended up using Psychic Spiral instead just to save a dollar but that is definitely a viable option. I may find room or swap them out.

Thanks for the +1 !
