for mirror matches or against mono-black control - - - I'd put in +3Negate , +2Syncopate or +2Dissipate and drop -2 Martial Law , -2 Terminus , -1 Supreme Verdict and -2 Oblivion Ring .. You can also consider Azorius Charm in place of Thought Scour as it gives you more options for 1 more white mana.. You have too much removal for creatures and perhaps get 1 additional win-con aside from burning your opponent's deck...Drogskol Reaver , Isperia, Supreme Judge or Archon of the Triumvirate perhaps....

I feel mill decks need constant creature removal and draw power. Trying to fit in counter magic would be almost impossible. I can see where you are coming from when you say to add counter magic when playing a mono black control deck, but i can always side board in counter spells when they are needed in such a case. I know I'm using a play set of Martial Law but the way i see it is that having multiple instances of them out doesn't end up hurting you or cause a negative effect. For example having a play set of sands of delirium would be pointless as they are not needed. Another win condition would be nice but once again they can also be side boarded in if the mill doesn't end up working out the first time around. I do appreciate the comment and advice :) keep them coming.

Nice deck, you're among the few w/ U/W control/mill on here. Perhaps this might help with getting those counters in the deck deck:durdle-their-brains-out. I must also respectfully disagree with law77 as far as the removal is concerned seeing as I have one less terminus than you and I have yet to have issues w/ creatures.

I noticed I miss-read law77s comment but my advice still stands: your removal is fine. I believe your hyper mill b/t Jace, Memory Adept , card:Geralf's Mindcrusher, and Mind Sculpt as well as Thought Scour should be plenty to catch an unwitting opponent off guard first game. Absolutely throw a second win con in the Sideboard though, card:Jace's Phantasm would be an obvious choice.... personally still looking for others myself.

Nice combination, but you may try adding some Tamiyo, the Moon Sage too. She's just one of the best game holder.

Hey I really like the combination of a control/mill deck. I would like to know if you have playtested it and see how competitive it is in standard for I am also thinking of making a UW Azorius control with Jace, Architect of Thought and Tamiyo, the Moon Sage :)

Nice, pretty close to mine WU Mill / Control if you want to take a look.Is really nice to play, but a tip... you will easly killed by fast aggro zombies decks.

Cyclonic Rift might be worth a shout. I took my Zombie Mill to FNM came 8th, but have since added more bounce cards. I think its a really good card, maybe instead of Feeling of Dread?

Otherwise +1 for the Mill Train !!

-1x Jace, Memory Adept , +1 Tamiyo, the Moon Sage (because he's legendary, and she can help draw cards)

Increasing Confusion is going to be very strong here. You'll want at least 1.

Curse of the Bloody Tome seems better than Sands of Delirium

Tamiyo, the Moon Sage would be great for this deck for certain but I can't recommend losing a Jace, Memory Adept for her. Hes too much of a key player and a major target.

Sands of Delirium IMHO is --Insanely-- better than Curse of the Bloody Tome since late game you should easily have 8 or 9 mana sitting around on the opponents turn.
