Undead Alchemist

Creature — Zombie

If a Zombie you control would deal combat damage to a player, instead that player puts that many cards from the top of his or her library into his or her graveyard.

Whenever a creature card is put into an opponent's graveyard from his or her library, exile that card and put a 2/2 black Zombie creature token onto the battlefield.

Sorry I had thought I saw you mention a combo between Bitter Ordeal and Traumatize but that was somebody else. There are a lot more combos that intruder alarm works with than just alchemist though, but most of them work much better with at least the elixir. For example it performs very well with Rise of the Dark Realms, Dread Summons, and other such cards that animate lots of minions at once. It also has some nice synergy with King Macar, the Gold-Cursed if you can get some creatures out. I'd also advise against running cards like Increasing Confusion that mill as a single use spell. You can get a lot more use out of creatures that like Hover Barrier that can function as a early blocker and as mill later in the game. They are also a lot more mana efficient with Hover Barrier milling for six the first time with the option to use it again for only 3 mana, compared to the one to one mill to mana use of x cost mill spells and the limitation of only milling once. Another upside of the creature alternative is the synergy with Intruder Alarm. One thing to keep in mind if you do end up running Undead Alchemist is that he will only exile eldrazi titans if they are put into the graveyard on your opponent's turn. Let me know if you end up trying any of these out and how they worked for you, I've been finding them pretty effective in my Phenax deck so I'm curious what other people think.

Hey bigblue32123, yeah I know Bitter Ordeal's gravestorm doesn't trigger off card mill, but it's still a powerful, proactive way to get rid of the old Eldrazi titans before they hit the graveyard and shuffle it back into an enemy's library.

I'm a little gunshy to include Intruder Alarm due to my low creature count. Outside of the 3-card combo you mentioned, it could really hose my own deck. Though Undead Alchemist looks like it could be a nice option to include all on his own...

Bitter Ordeal doesn't work the way you think it does. If you double check the wording on it, gravestorm says to copy it for each permanent put into the graveyard this turn. A permanent has to be something that was already on the battlefield so it doesn't work with mill. I'd recommend using Intruder Alarm since it combos well with Undead Alchemist and Thousand-Year Elixir.

Hey Snap157 and Optimator, thanks for the upvotes! I once used Undead Alchemist, but I did not appreciated his input in the deck. Can't remember what he was changed for, but all went better afterwards so cheers!

Undead Alchemist is a trap unless the deck is entirely mill-based. Which I guess this is?

Duuude, Undead Alchemist simply needs to be in here!! Him with Altar of the Brood make an insane combo.

Playing Undead Alchemist with an Altar of the Brood out there is such a sadistically enjoyable moment in a group game.
