Description

Hi folks, as you could have already guessed, this deck is mainly focussed on milling your opponents to death. While this could be consistently done in a 1 vs 1 scenario, it's instead really difficult in multiplayer matches, since there are few cards that effectively mill each of your opponents in one go. You can and must rely on your commander for most of your milling-action... luckily he's an indestructible God from the Theros block, so that should keep most of the threats away from him.

Your only chanche of succeeding is thus to play a super slow-tempo political game: if you are able into fooling one of your foes that you are no threat, you'll have better chanches of getting to lategame, where this deck really shines!

If the table turns on you, remember that you've still got some aces up in your sleeves (quite literally): some shapeshifters able to copy some of the creatures that you mill in the graveyard of your opponents, such as Lazav, Dimir Mastermind, Dimir Doppelganger and Body Double, in order to get big thoughness creatures on the field or to better defend yourself. And since we're feedind graveyards like crazy, consider ending games faster with a Consuming Aberration, a tap-able creature bestowed with Nighthowler or equipped with a Bonehoard... and if you are feeling particularly saucy, with a Sewer Nemesis that mills the selfsame player you choose (I know that if you mill out the plyer the Nemesis dies, but it's so spicy that I'd do it anyways).

Once you reach mid to lategame you'll get acess to nasty combos that in one turn could literally mill from 100 to zero someone at the table. Here they are: - Freed from the Real and Pemmin's Aura, combined respectively with a lot of medium toughness creatures or just one big toughness creature, while Phenax, God of Deception is on the field, can end games.

The nastiest combo you can make in a deck such as this is indeed just Phenax, God of Deception's ability on Eater of the Dead, which goes infinite, but I chose to not include Eater of the Dead since it's a way too powerful and reliable combo for my playgroup. All considered, it's a one card combo, given the fact that Phenax, God of Deception usually sits in the Command Zone or it's already on the field, and he is very hard to remove too (only exile effects take him out).

You have also plenty of prison effects that will say to your opponents "better attack someone else", such as my beloved Propaganda... or Dread, Dissipation Field, Riddlekeeper. They could as well not attack at all, if that's their choice about Fatespinner's effect.

I know that the worst nightmare for a mill deck like this are the only two playable Eldrazi Titans from Rise of Eldrazi, that reshuffle the whole graveyard back in the library. Though, in my playgroup, nobody plays them apart from me, thus there's no need for cards such as Praetor's Grasp and Sadistic Sacrament. I still have some similar removal though, with the second effect of Life's Finale.

Last but not the least you are paired Jace, Memory Adept, that of course will help you keep up the good work by drawing and milling even more!

Even though I included a lot of not exactly "budget cards" in this deck, I hope this deck to be accessible enough to all players who want to dive into the marvelous theme of Memory Erosion!
