Trepanation Blade Discussion

eprovince on Inky, are you pondering what I'm pondering?

Get your hands on a Trepanation Blade . It works wonders with Inky. When they have an empty graveyard. The mill happens before you hit. This gives you a chance to get some of their good stuff in the graveyard so you can steal it. It's an uncommon too so it should be low budget.

Honestly the creature that are swinging at you are often the least of your worries. It's the ones with brutal abilities that you should be concerned about.

Trepanation Blade is an all around weak card. Doesn't attack hard or mill much. I promise that if you play test it you will remove it, or you can listen to me and save yourself the time.

Cyclonic Rift is one of the most powerful blue control spells for EDH. You really need to include it.

Trepanation Blade is certainly nice, but this deck doesn't really attack with creatures except maybe in the beginning if you have a Siren of the Silent Song in play. As soon as Phenax hits the board, creatures stop attacking and turn into defenders.

Also, Trepanation Blade for all the mill.

What you could do is declare the start of your combat phase, then tap the Giant in order to retrieve the Equipment you were looking for, say a Trepanation Blade then use the untap ability of Ith, High Arcanist then declare Stonehewer Giant as an attacker, get the trigger from the Trepanation Blade for mill purposes, but he would produce no damage due to Ith's ability still in effect.

FaustHarbinger the deck already has Traumatize . Szadek, Lord of Secrets seems pretty good, I'll see if I can make some space for it. I already tried Trepanation Blade on modern mill decks, it didn't work that well, I'm not sure if it's really that effective. Adding mill to deck is probably a good idea, but I think that it would be better if they were creatures, because of the reanimation part. Anyway, thanks for the suggestions!

consider adding a bit of Mill to the deck. it works fantastically with The Mimeoplasm . things like Traumatize on the deck that you think has the biggest creatures. or Szadek, Lord of Secrets or Trepanation Blade work well also. Price
