Traumatize Discussion

Skullion123 I had considered Undead Alchemist (I actually picked him up about a week ago) but ultimately decided he leaned a little too hard into the mill sub-theme when I'd rather be dealing damage with my zombies. Keening Stone is a great suggestion though, could be devastating in tandem with Traumatize.

Traumatize is very poor in modern. Doesn't do enough fast enough.

I always thought it would be hilarious in a bruna deck to Traumatize yourself lol

Take out the stuff that costs 4+ mana first. Namely, Traumatize and Mind Grind. Jace's Erasure is another card I'm not sold on - you don't have enough draw spells to make it punish the opponent enough. Maybe if you had Visions of Beyond in there, or even Sign in Blood.

And definitely consider Mindcrank if you're keeping the Duskmantle Guildmages. I don't care much for their infinite combo, but it does win the game on the spot, so...

My goal is to kill myself and others so that I can use Grimoire of the Dead, I forgot about Consuming admiration LabRattKing that would help a lot... I actually thought about using Panoptic Mirror and Traumatize, but it's a lot of mana... I can post a link to the deck later today

Is the goal to just mill your opponent quickly? If so, take a a look at this: Infinite Mill (No Ascendancy). It's a standard infinite combo deck by Behgz that I found to be particularly effective.

If you're not up for the infinite combo, I'd go for "grind" effects like Mind Funeral. Also, shoutout to my favorite mill-based creature, Consuming Aberration.

Some other options include Traumatize and Jace, Memory Adept, which can both put huge chunks of cards into the graveyard. Also, to use Mirror-Mad Phantasm to your advantage, there's Psychic Spiral which turns your self-mill against your opponent.

Looks pretty good. Some great cards to include in an enchantment based deck are Rhystic Study (though it can tend to get focused) even if you draw a card and a removal spell from it it is usually worth it. Traumatize is a handy way to dump a whole bunch of enchantments into your graveyard to put on Bruna. Some more artifacts which grant haste wouldn't go amiss either, such as Lightning Greaves or Swiftfoot Boots. Mana acceleration is great in EDH considering it is a format about big flashy cards and mana intensive combos. All azorious mana producing artifacts and Signet will help get bruna out faster, and even give you more mana to cast more enchantments on your turn Commander's Sphere (and if you can get it a Coalition Relic) will greatly improve the speed, as well as make Armageddon less bad for you. Plain old Counterspell would be a great replacement for Hindering Light since it is more versatile. Sorry for the wall of text.
