Vessel of Paramnesia Discussion

n0bunga So I agree with you slightly, I wouldnt use Unquenchable Thirst , Spontaneous Mutation is just so much better it is less mana, has flash and could easily replace, Imprisoned in the Moon plus works really great with Winds of Rebuke which is really usefull at getting rid of planeswalkers and it mills, two for one. The lands are just to great not to have, its a late game finisher, you can mill 16 in one turn with 2 of them. Also I think Vessel of Paramnesia is terrible considering Strategic Planning is a thing its an anticipate that supports delirium heavily.
I am listing my deck here I am trying a creatureless approach just to help eliminate creature kill.

I think running Ipnu would be correct here. It's just too potent not to run. Plus, what creature in standard is more than 20 toughness? You can afford a few less Islands. Or even the Aether Hubs since you'd rather use on the Minister.
With those in the main, Unquenchable Thirst is a very strong enchantment.
You can probably afford the GY exile Desert as a side entry, especially because it kinda messes with Manic Scribe.
Your Minister seems pretty underpowered here; most energy packages run Glimmer of Genius and Aether Meltdown as they're non-exhaustible ways at generating energy, unlike Aether Hub. Might be something to consider, if that's the route you want to go.
Best advice I can offer is to visually map out the mill cards you have in your main. At a quick glance You've more than enough to mill close to 100 cards, without factoring in Fraying Sanity's multiplier and without incorporating Manic's Delirium Trigger. Startled Awake is the real deal, but I've found that you can get away with having 2; but definitely keep 4 Fraying Sanity, as the stack effects are just enormous.
And if you want to improve the potency of Manic's Delirium Vessel of Paramnesia is a nice fit.
I like where you're heading, and it seems to be in the right direction, but this could definitely use some fine tuning.
One thing to consider is to splash to run Fog effects like Commencement of Festivities and Haze of Pollen. This is the gameplan for standard (and Frontier) mill, as it allows you to stall aggressive decks while you're assembling your mill package. Not only that but it allows you to run Vessel of Nascency which tutors for your mill creatures, or Fraying Sanity.
If you'd like to take a look at any of the standard legal cards I have in my Frontier build, I absolutely encourage it:

+1 from me, regardless. The stars rarely align for decent mill decks but it looks like we're here at the right time.

need at least 21 lands, dispel should be negate, negate hands down affects more spells mainboard than a dispel. i would drop Vessel of Paramnesia for 3 more lands. River Serpent is would replace with Cryptic Serpent if you wanted to have a creature, however Sphinx of the Final Word is prolly the best finisher

The worry that I have about Minister of Inquiries is that once you run out of energy counters, it really does nothing in the deck. I like Mirrorpool in this deck to copy a Startled Awake and something to return Compelling Argument and Startled Awake from the graveyard to your hand will always help.

Startled Awake hits the most cards, but there's also Manic Scribe, Minister of Inquiries, Compelling Argument, Vessel of Paramnesia, Fleeting Memories, Ipnu Rivulet, Seer of the Last Tomorrow, Winds of Rebuke and the jankiest and worst one of all: Embalmer's Tools.

Maybe try Pieces of the Puzzle to help activate the manic scribe. Another mill card you missed was Vessel of Paramnesia. Also maybe consider Scribe of the Mindful to help get some of your mill cards back. Also Mirrorpool is a great land to have in this deck to effectively quadruple the amount of cards your opponent mills if you have the curse out. Some Geier Reach Sanitariums may also help with milling by making them discard. You may also consider making this deck UB in order to access cards that make your opponent discard such as Unburden and hand disruption such as Dispossess and Lost Legacy. If you have any question feel free to respond back :)

I'm the guy on the other side of the table (probably with an RG Pummeler deck), so please take my thoughts with healthy skepticism!
But it seems like turning on Delirium for Manic Scribe would be very important, so you may want to add some more Vessel of Paramnesia or Sac Lands (e.g., Mirrorpool, Blighted Cataract, or maybe even Evolving Wilds).
Also in case you hadn't already seen it, I wanted to point out a recent Mono-U Mill article and videos by SaffronOlive. Might be worth a look!
Finally, I love Thing in the Ice (though my experience with it is all in UR Control) and it seems like Baral, Chief of Compliance would be very strong with it ... but it might be better in a more "pure" Control build (with more Instant/Sorceries and only 4-8 Creatures).
Good luck (and good skill!) with the brew!
