Whenever equipped creature attacks, defending player reveals cards from the top of his library until he or she reveals a land card. The creature gets +1/+0 until end of turn for each card revealed this way. That player puts the revealed cards into his or her graveyard.
Some more suggestions/considerations.
Utility lands... Haunted Fengraf is pretty good in a spell-heavy deck having fewer targets means you know what you'll be getting, Ghost Quarter , Tectonic Edge and Encroaching Wastes would be worth running too.
Would recommend not going the mill route, uyo has flying and s a sizeable beater, tack a Bonesplitter on her and her clock is a lot faster, might want to try out Trepanation Blade , Darksteel Axe and i think the cheapest sword Sword of Body and Mind might be in your price range. Even a Frontline Sage or Cathedral of War subtly makes her a threat...
Needs some value-counters Overwhelming Intellect is the one i pretty much love and can replace Peer Through Depths while you might want to add in Archaeomancer , Scrivener and Ghostly Flicker to capitalise on etb effects.
If you rely on instants and sorceries more than your opponents you could give Arcane Melee a try... reducing your spells considerably would let you cast a lot more of them in quick succession "hints at storm" Mind's Desire i think has gone down in price since it was banned in legacy and then you've got Temporal Fissure which could be absolutely devastating with a high-enough storm count.
Is Gilded Lotus in your pricerange?
feel free to check out my Grim-Grin deck for any ideas. Bring Out Ya Dead!
Thanks to both of you!
And Replace them with:
I'll probably also replace 1 Guiltfeeder with 1 Trepanation Blade or an other Mind Funeral
Oh, one more - Trepanation Blade will definitely speed up the process if your mill cards aren't effective or get nullified.
Ahh, I miss the days of old standard, where Duskmantle Guildmage + Invisible Stalker + Trepanation Blade was a thing. For this deck, Traumatize is probably better as a one of, since if you draw more than one then the second one is probably going to do less than a Breaking / Entering and for more mana too. Wight of Precinct Six is a cool card, but is pretty wimpy until you've milled them a bunch (assuming they have creatures in their deck), and at that point Consuming Aberration works better. Have you considered Omenspeaker or Returned Phalanx to help deal with aggressive decks instead?
Thanks all for the ideas. This deck is actually becoming quite similar to another mill deck that I had a while ago. I never have liked Hands of Binding as much as Hidden Strings , and the two defender cards are good but I prefer the phantasm because it is cheap and can attempt a kill if you're not getting anywhere else. I can't count the number of times that the phantasms have saved me a game. Like said above, Jace, Memory Adept is coming but I don't have him yet. Trepanation Blade is a great card and I have used it before so I might try and find a way to work that in. And lastly, Mirko Vosk is good, but I don't feel that he is as productive as other methods. Also, what would you think about trying to squeeze in an Essence Harvest ?
I feel like Sands of Delirium would often go unused because of playing other spells, and Trepanation Blade would be a one-time paying mana for possibly as much or more mill. I feel the same towards Oona, and Consecrated Sphinx is good but you don't have as much all-draw as I thought, same for Notion thief. Brain Freeze has lots of potential to give lots of mill, without any need for large mana usage. There's a 3 CMC Zombie who's name is escaping me at the moment but the ability is 1, Sac a creature: Target player mills to a land, who looks like he could be helpful.
