Trepanation Blade Discussion

so I am attacking using a creature with Trepanation Blade and my opponent plays murder. my question is this: does trepanation blade's ability get stopped or is that an automatic affect triggered by me declaring him as an attacker, and murder is resolved in the next step?

Phyrexian Dreadnought is an absolute bomb in Gisa. for 12 zombies? Sign me up! Just make sure you don't pay his enters the battlefield cost and sacrifice him before he dies. Grafted Wargear gets you 3 additional zombies for no cost. Gravespawn Sovereign is a must and combos with Thornbite Staff and a big creature to reanimate and sack. You'll need Ashnod's Altar to get out some of your bigger spells.
Now I'm going to give you some strictly better versions of cards you have.

If by "become more consistent" you mean "turn into a mill deck," then I completely agree. The only problem is that this isn't a mill deck.
The point of this deck is to equip, enchant, and encode unblockable creatures with effects that trigger when they deal damage to an opponent. The win condition is reducing the opponent's life total to zero. While making the deck mill-focused is a completely viable strategy (especially with Paranoid Delusions and Trepanation Blade), I don't think that's what the deck's creator was going for. Just because a deck is Blue/Black doesn't mean it's a mill deck.
I actually have a similar deck, inspired by this one.

Thanks for the suggestion! I had considered Trepanation Blade, but the cost seems too much to play and equip. I feel like I spend two whole turns just getting the damned thing functional. I'll put it in the maybeboard.
Adversely, at least one Tormod's Crypt is essential as reanimators and Elixir of Immortality become more popular in my playgroup, 'cause I'm always milling the hell outta them. LOL. It's free, and works in a snap!
Thanks for the +1 and suggestion!

Have you considered Trepanation Blade? I think it would combo very well with the invisible stalker and the mill strat and might be more useful in certain matches than Tormod's Crypt which seems a lot more like a side-board card, unless your meta runs a ton of delve/recursion.
