If you want to steer even more into milling with Altar of the Brood , you could also find room for Fleet Swallower , Traumatize , and Cards like Undead Alchemist . I agree that Sidisi Lists are Very, Very hard to cut cards from; Its retired now, but I used to love playing this old list, feel free to take a lookand see if anything helps you out:: Gold buys Death, Death earns Gold (RETIRED)

If you’re gonna Traumatize yourself you might also want to add Open the Vaults or Replenish if you can afford it. Bruna does it herself but in the event they deny you access to her it’s good to have a plan B Retether is also an option

Nomad Mythmaker is also good recursion on his own.

Spellseeker if you want another tutor

Other enchantments to consider maybe are Celestial Mantle , Daybreak Coronet , Empyrial Armor . I’m sure I’ll think of more as I brainstorm but that’s a start!

Take a look at Traumatize , Fact or Fiction , Jace, Memory Adept , Fraying Sanity , Increasing Confusion , Bond of Insight , Duplicity and maybe Fleet Swallower .

Some nice combos with Tunnel Vision are Conjurer's Bauble and Canal Dredger . I believe you can ignore the drafting rules text (especially if you're playing casually).

Looking at some random cards on the database I saw Disciple of the Ring . Could be fun.

Those are all possibilities. I'm not particularly knowledgeable about self-mill.

Also, and I know many would disagree with this, but I have a soft spot for Fog Bank .

Oh the puns are real in that comment haha!

Good to know that my thought process was on the money thinking of the LabMan and yeah Jace would be good too (I have one which means no need to buy more cards).

when you say "they could kill me" I assume you mean by means of me milling myself instead? or do you mean that having such a large amount of draw would put a huge target on me for my playgroup to go after? Sorry haha was just trying to work out if your suggesting the Notion Thief combo is a valid tactic?

Yeah, I completely agree - that's a brilliant idea. It seems to be a much more stable way of winning as opposed to something like a Kozilek, Butcher of Truth to recycle my cards to keep milling. Why not just mill myself once the option presents itself - milling 92 cards is much easier than 276 haha!

Interesting concept being able to bring back my creatures from the graveyard like that.. it would certainly add to the Rise of the Dark Realms which is already in the list. I must agree that I'm not sure if I'll include them or not but I will definitely keep them in mind!

I have also been thinking of another maybe-card being Underworld Dreams . I'd probably remove Notion Thief though if I was going to do that.

I am picking up a huge portion of the list in about 15 minutes and I can safely say that this weekend I'm going to Traumatize my friends and show them No Mercy ! heh..heh heh..

Making zombies out of your opponents creatures is terrifying. Traumatize , Fleet Swallower or anything that can put a lot of cards in a graveyard at once gives you lots of choices for creatures.

Thanks for featuring me in!

Anyways, I'd say the swap of Sphinx's Tutelage for Hinder was a good idea overall.

Your graveyard interaction is much more present than mine, I will take inspiration from you and maybe make some changes to my decklist regarding Havengul Lich and The Scarab God .

The swap of Dread for No Mercy is something I'm planning to do too, as soon as some budget kicks in.

Absolutely do not even consider cutting out Mesmeric Orb , it's god level mill right there: people cannot choose to not untap permanents, unless they don't tap them in the first place. So to counter such a play, they'd have to destroy/counter it or else... Stop playing? The auto mill hits you too, but you should be fine. Same goes to a lesser extent to Dreamborn Muse .

Bitter Ordeal is a fun card, plus it's a one hit kill with Traumatize / Fleet Swallower . Definitely worth a try. Plus, it removes threats, or simply remove all the good cards from your opponents' decks... So evil.

Are you sure about Kozilek, Butcher of Truth ? You are not an attacking deck and overall may need huge amounts of mana to cast it. If you only care about reshuffling your graveyard, the are other options that only shuffle one graveyard (yours), listed in the section The Bane of Your Existence in my decklist.

One last thing: are your land drops consistent overall? If not, I'd consider going up to 36 lands.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks Chhris.

You know, it's interesting, I very seriously considered both of those suggestions based on the heavy mill - my knowledge is based on a more modern format of milling and from what I have researched, they haven't been overly respected. My logic however has said "WHY THE HECK NOT?!" I read that there is an interesting combo with Traumatize that can target all players, is that correct? And as for Ulamog, I certainly would consider it. Again, I just get less tempted by exile - it's bitter sweet because I would like answers to graveyard-centric decks but I don't want to take value away from my creatures as well.. haha!
