Traumatize Discussion

2 more copies of Glimpse the Unthinkable is to costly and Traumatize was going to be replaced with Maddening Cacophony the moment that tapped out considered it modern legal.

The plan is to by turn 3 and 4 either transmute for Fraying Sanity or play fraying sanity, allowing a draw out for the opponent after you play Traumatize.

If you don't get Traumatize, Fraying Sanity with cards like Glimpse the Unthinkable and Merfolk Secretkeeper allow an alternative win.

I have considered Breaking but after Maddening Cacophony showed up, I thought it wouldn't be worth it.

I have a non-budget restricted version of this deck, but it is private and still in development.

I’m not an experienced magic player, and I only recently constructed my first mill deck, but it occurs to me that it might be a better idea to include 4 copies of Glimpse the Unthinkable and drop Traumatize down to 2. In a dream scenario where you play Traumatize as early as possible and 4 turns in a row, you’ll first mill about 25 or so cards. Next turn’s Traumatize will only mill around 12 cards, then each subsequent casting will mill 6 then 3 cards. In other words Traumatize becomes orders-of-magnitude less effective each time it is cast. Once or twice per game is sufficient; it’s more cost effective to cast Glimpse the Unthinkable multiple times, or other mill spells like Breaking or the new Maddening Cacophony.

Traumatize your opponent with Bruvac in play

Also, am I the only one that thinks Bruvac's name sounds like a cleaning supply?

I don't know if you look at previews/spoilers but there's a new card in Zendikar Rising that probably every Bruvac deck is going to want.

Nymphrodell the build is no higher than 3cmc, it can be higher as long it can be cast for less somehow. Traumatize is a decent card, but hard to play in the modern meta game. You need to be able to cast multiple things, Fraying Sanity does a nice job consistently and can thin that deck quick. Would also be in play turn 3 ideally getting two turns of work in before traumatize would see play and that’s if you curve out. Just my opinion, always open to ideas.
