Visions of Beyond Discussion

MRDOOM3 on "Where did your deck go?"

A really easy way to end a friendship: Grindstone + Painter's Servant .

I definitely would consider Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver for this deck.

Have you considered Increasing Confusion as another mill spell?

Jace's Phantasm and Visions of Beyond are nice cards as well.

sadly this deck is not standard. If you are interested in a standard mill deck look up fleeting sanity. Otherwise if you are looking into modern mill may i suggest; Breaking / Entering, Crypt Incursion, Archive Trap, Hedron Crab, Jace's Phantasm, Mind Funeral, Thought Scour, Mind Grind and Visions of Beyond. Those are just a couple cards that come to mind. If you really are looking into modern mill do some research because those card suggestions are limited given that I only have a small interest in mill.

at bare minimum replace Startled Awake  Flip with Mind Sculpt. also, cantripping is something valuable so you get card replacement - i.e. swap out Mana Leak for Remand.

if you choose to splash black (a little extra $$) you could also add Mind Funeral and Glimpse the Unthinkable, in which case you'd be getting a lot close to a real modern competitive deck.

and lastly Visions of Beyond is good for mill.

good luck

@CowsRetro: Too much land, for starters. The average cmc is about 2, and lethal with 2 land, justifying only the 20 lands, with variants of selection.

Wight is an unnecessary 2 cost. Great blocker for a creature, no doubt. I could guarantee a whole turn from many decks by spending one mana for more fog effects on top of Haze and Path, like Darkness. Though, I like the idea of keeping W as the defense color and add Holy Day instead. Wight would be more of a SB card and alternate wincon.

The phantasms are about the same. A 5/5 doesn't last long in a meta full of removal like Fatal Push, and go-wide decks. Snapcaster Mage would be better. The ETB effect pays for him and it wouldn't have to stick around long; just enough to chump block, or take the heat off of your Crabs.

Also, I'm seeing a lack of draw with this build. Running your hand into the ground and topdecking a win is great when using Ensnaring Bridge but you still want answers: Visions of Beyond gives you those answers at the right time. So, IMO your build is effective, but statistically it could be more efficient.

@frogkill45: Nice, I completely overlooked the lack of a 'may' clause in Field of Ruin. I'll have to work some into the deck. The reason I didn't include it initially is because of the 2 mana cost, but it's probably worth it to force the free Archive Trap.

@Caaarrlll: As frogkill45 said, Set Adrift is used over Echoing Truth so that Leyline of Sanctity can be milled into the graveyard, probably via Mesmeric Orb or Hedron Crab. Visions of Beyond does step on Ensnaring Bridge's toes somewhat. I haven't had a chance to put this deck together and see how it plays yet, but I imagine it just requires tactful use of Visions of Beyond (i.e. don't use it with 1 card in hand against a board of 2/2s). Visions of Beyond will probably be one of the first things to go when I need to sideboard against aggro/Emrakul, the Aeons Torn/graveyard-based decks anyway, since Crypt Incursion interferes with it, and Leyline of the Void ruins it. I might drop 1 copy of it.

How does Ensnaring Bridge with Visions of Beyond work for you? Seems like Visions would end up negating the Bridge effect whenever you cast it. I also feel like Echoing Truth would be a bit better than Set Adrift. Otherwise looks solid.

Hey Mindset905, thanks for the comment!

The strict focus of this build is to finish off your opponent through milling as fast as possible.

Because of this alternate win condition cards like Jace's Phantasm, disruption cards like Surgical Extraction, and long-game cards like Visions of Beyond or Crypt Incursion have all been kept out (except from the sideboard). I can totally see why the phantasm (and all of the above) are tempting cards, but they would ultimately slow the deck down by pulling in directions other than turbo-mill.

Good idea though - and thanks for the vote haha.
