Traumatize Discussion

KingOfWhales on Scarab God

I don't see why Mindcrank and a few other cards are in there if you aren't planning on milling people down, from your description it seems like thats not what you're going for, if you are, Traumatize. But I'd recommend sticking with lifedrain and good old fashion beating people over the head with lots of zombies. Phenax, God of Deception is cool, but don't try to do that and lifedrain zombies.

If you are going for a lifedrain deck look at Bontu's Monument, Whip of Erebos is good.

Look at Dralnu, Lich Lord because its amazing, same goes for Semblance Anvil, Possessed Skaab, Call to the Kindred, Ever After and Lim-Dul's Vault is broken. Obelisk of Urd is a tribal deck's best friend.

There are better wipes for this deck than Coastal Breach and you are a bit low on removal. Malicious Affliction and Dash Hopes are very good and fun. Get rid of Imprisoned in the Moon. Another thing you can do for removal is use Fleshbag Marauder, have it sac itself, then cast it from the graveyard. Stronghold Assassin too. Cauldron of Souls Can help you dodge board wipes and is a cool card to have. Perplex is fun too. And Mimic Vat

Arcane Adaptation is neat but there are much better cards that you can use. Black Market isn't as good as it seems because your mana empties before you can use it for anything good most of the time. Empty the Pits is very expensive, but if you can make it work, do it.

Your nonbasic lands are also really slow and you may need more lands in general, 36ish is about where you want to be. Look at Choked Estuary and Command Tower or cards that lower costs like Jet Medallion.

I know I've suggested to add a lot more cards than I suggested to take out, and I've never really even tried to give deck advice before, but I hope I at least gave you some ideas.

flluid on Holy Crab! Where Did Your Deck Go?

@Limo not a bad card, but this deck will rarely get to 7 lands to cast it especially in a format such as modern. It, like Traumatize, is worse and worse as the game goes on so no reason for the inclusion. @droslag Nephalia Drownyard is a bit too underwhelming of an ability for 3 mana to consider for this deck. The fact that is a colorless land in a 3 color deck doesnt help its cause, and we should be playing other spells other than using it as a mana sink. @Dergam we run Ghost Quarter as it is extremely similar cost nothing to activate and still gives a search scenario for the opponent. I may do some testing with it but for now the mana base is pretty tight.

PickleNutz on Mill by JaeHoshii

Heres a list of modern legal Mill spells that I dont think you have listed in your deck.

(Archive Trap pairs well against enemies who are using fetch lands or tutors, you can also control the effect with cards like Ghost Quarter and Field of Ruin)

To make a decent mill deck youll definitely need to splash black as the most efficient cards for mill are Dimir cards.

Youll also want to use Fetch and Shock lands like Watery Grave and Polluted Delta if you want to attempt competitive level play. I would recommend not doing that though because mill is very inefficient against the meta decks in modern and is considered by most to be too slow.

Hope that helps!

Fleet Swallower from Ixalan is Traumatize on a stick, so it might be worth running in here too.

I love to play Traumatize in my own mill deck.

It's interesting to see the compromises you made by not running black. You pretty much have all the mill all-stars in blue. Fraying Sanity can be insane when put down early, and when comboed with Traumatize, that ends it right there.
