Traumatize Discussion

t3hdarkness on What are you gonna do, send it to my graveyard?

Some of the options I know aren't the most budget friendly but Mesmeric Orb Might be a better way than Traumatize to fill graveyards although with cards like Dralnu, Lich Lord and Call to Mind that's hard to tell. If you do add to the milling abilities, or even if you don't Undead Alchemist does a lot of work towards growing your horde. Geth, Lord of the Vault is also pretty handy at filling

Now this is meta dependent, but how often do you see yourself casting the CMC 6-8spells before the game ends?

You could cut some of the upper end to reinforce the lower with cards like Blood Artist and Zulaport Cutthroat. If you want to stay closer to theme, Vengeful Dead Also causes life loss. The first two would also help mitigate the negative side of Dark Prophecy and reinforce the existing cards like Diregraf Captain and Plague Belcher.

Cauldron of Souls and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed double the value of some of your deck's abilities.

Nantuko Husk can get big for a turn and is a fine sac outlet, but Carrion Feeder gets big and stays big.

Cool commander and theme - nice list!

Some cards that came to mind that might be helpful to test:

Happy brewing!

Traumatize to get a bunch of toys to play with right away. Fleet Swallower and Nemesis of Reason for the same reason.

Atroxreaper, you mentioned Mill as an archetype, but that is a particular deck and win condition not it's own archetype.

For example, you can build Mill in all 3 archetypes.

Aggro - using Hedron crabs and fetch lands to consistently mill every turn and build a strong board state. This is how I built Modern Delver Mill.

Combo - finding Fraying Sanity and Combo off with cards like Startled Awake  Flip, Fleet Swallower or Traumatize. Or using Field of Ruin or Ghost Quarter to trigger Archive Trap.

Control - use a slow plan to build a board state with Ensnaring Bridge, Mesmeric Orb and grind out victories that way.

I have a friend with a pretty similar deck, and based on his deck, you should add in a lot more creatures and self-mill to generate zombies from Sidisi. This friend of mine uses Traumatize to mill half his library, which now would probably get you an average of around 10 zombies from Sidisi. Mirror-Mad Phantasm works similarly. Splinterfright is a great addition as well. Hope this helps!

Jace, the Mind Sculptor I also run jaky draw spells like Temple Bell+Unwinding Clock the bell can be cloned with Sculpting Steel Copy Artifact Clever Impersonator Phyrexian Metamorph and will draw up to 4 cards on everyone's turn

Tunnel Vision+Keening StoneHinder+Tunnel VisionTunnel Vision+Spell CrumpleKeening Stone on the field. Cast Traumatize. Use Keening Stone to double the cards milled.

Mind Over Matter+Temple BellJester's Cap+Bribery also can be useful

Hedron Crab is a mill staple Polymorph in any blue deck is good.

Blue Sun's Zenith+ any inf mana combo like Basalt Monolith+Power ArtifactPili-Pala+Grand Architect

Leyline of the Void+Helm of Obedience

Demonic Tutor Mystical Tutor Vampiric Tutor Imperial Seal and other tutors would make it run a lot smoother...

Hey friend! Love the list and the unique commander.

First, I would indeed double down on the mill -- however, mill in EDH is really too weak to be a viable win condition unless it is your only wincon. (In other words, plan to win through beatdown, which you achieve through mill and Geralf. You might sometimes win through mill, but don't bet everything on it.) I would include more mill to fuel the Stitcher. As is, you've got a ~17% chance to mill a creature, and only 4-5 of them are enormous creatures that you'd want exiled. As a result, you're relying on exiling opponents' libraries, which is always dangerous because they could be packing 17 creatures or even just 1.

Great mill cards are Mirror-Mad Phantasm, Undead Alchemist, Traumatize, Fraying Sanity, Startled Awake  Flip, etc, especially if you use them on yourself where applicable! Laboratory Maniac helps mitigate the risk of that strategy.

To make room for the mill, I would cut a lot of your artifacts, in addition to the cards like Mechanized Production that are "cute" combos (ones that don't come together often) or the scrying (which doesn't advance your gameplan of filling your grave and abusing Geralf). Usually, five or six mana rocks and five or fewer utility artifacts are sufficient (depending on meta), so you can use all of those slots for creatures! That will increase the consistency of your deck and hopefully make it more fun for you!

Good luck! Let me know if I can be helpful!
