I made this mill deck as a counter to the decks that have cards like Elixir of Immortality and the bane of any mill deck Kozilek, Butcher of Truth. Please remember to give this deck a thumbs up if you like it.

Looks quite brutal!

DarthTrevyn, this deck mills a full 60 cards by no later than turn 8 or 9.

Love your deck! Maybe replace one Mind Funeral with one Surgical Extraction . Mind Funeral is my favorite card. It has the coolest art! +1

user:CrimsonKing69... The Isochron Scepter is for Surgical Extraction /Extirpate . I will pay one extra mana, but I can use it every turn. card:Jace's Erasure combos with card:Jace's Archivist. Those are my biggest millers. Surgical Extraction is more like spot removal.

Undead Alchemist adds function to mill, the bane of Unburial Rites decks seeing as their creatures dont go into the grave and fuel your own milling army

i like it, but you might want to consider Circu, Dimir Lobotomist

Jon1337 says... #9

@ gheridarigaaz. Undead Alchemist is a good card, I might test play the deck with that in there, but for right now this deck is about milling the opponent as quickly as possible.

@ ksj358. I use to have Circu, Dimir Lobotomist in the deck, but he was too slow to make the oppoent discard and too slow to get out. My highest cmc is 5. Which is Nemesis of Reason and that mills ten cards a turn.

I like it, i tried to build a similar deck and i find Mind Funeral becomes less effective the more you Extirpate or Surgical Extraction . but looks like it works better in yours than mine.

Don't forget to add Snapcaster Mage to flashback that beautiful Glimpse the Unthinkable

August 1, 2012 2:16 p.m.

Jon1337 says... #12

@ Laurenz Surgical Extraction and Extirpate are only going to be used on things that could become a problem.

@ Deck_Master Snapcaster Mage could work. I'll have to do some test plays with [email protected] Gday811 Sands of Delirium is too slow.

I don't think there's any way to make a proper mill deck in Modern, most decks in the format are just too quick, you will have trouble keeping your footing past turn 4-5 let alone turn 8.

1/4 topdecks have an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn somewhere, and even if you manage to Extirpate it the ability will still resolve and you need to start from the beginning, they might even have Kozilek, Butcher of Truth and/or Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre still waiting to trigger as well.

Leyline of the Void is about the best card for this kind of deck, but once it's on the field Extirpate and Surgical Extraction become next to useless, same with Isochron Scepter , card:Tormod's Crypt and extra copies of Leyline of the Void .

This is probably one of the better mill decks I've seen, and you have answers for many problems, but I can't see this doing well outside of a casual setting. It's kind of sad Wizards killed the mill archetype, but they're trying to make up for it by bringing it back in standard which is kind of cool.

card:Jace's Erasure and card:Jace's Archivist are an interesting combo.

I made a Legacy mill deck, Take the blue Mill, the story ends. . Would you check it out?

August 8, 2012 6:22 p.m.

the5ervant says... #15

Oops, I forgot. +1 for the combo.

August 8, 2012 6:24 p.m.

-2 card:Jace's Erasure

+2 Surgical Extraction

I might have to steal this deck's idea. Its mill-tastic. +1 for creative milling and keeping that old stone turning.

Great deck. I like the idea of exiling everything instead of using the graveyard. You definitely got a thumbs up from me. I still have one suggestion though: Maybe you could replace Jace's Erasure with Sphinx's Tutelage. It might cost more, but I think it sure is worth it.

captaindave36 says... #21

How about a couple of Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker instead of Nezumi Graverobber or even Sire of Stagnation for the exile and draw

I know this is kinda a double edged sword, but what about Fascination?

Why no Visions of Beyond, it seems very good in this deck. Also, Hedron Crab is a very good card in mill

Hiya,I do agree with pheonix_222 that Leyline of the Void can actually ruin the whole Isochron Scepter + Surgical Extraction/Extirpate combo. I think that the Isochron combo should definitely be supported in the deck because it can wreck most modern decks that rely on combo pieces. I suggest that you replace the leylines for two Shred Memory's, that can serve as graveyard hate and tutor up your isochron scepter. What do you think about that idea?

Sweet deck +1 check out my U/B mill Brain Vomit

eulogy says... #26

just a suggestion Ravenous Trap

May 16, 2017 2:49 a.m.

Crypt Incursion stops Eldrazi titans and elixirs, plus gains you a bunch of life, and you can still use Fraying Sanity if you don't use Leyline of the Void mainboard.

canyonrp says... #28

Maybe use Sphinx's Tutelage instead of Jace's Erasure?

August 14, 2017 10:08 p.m.

eulogy says... #29

if you put in Sphinx's Tutelage you can use Painter's Servant too

Otimo deck! Teste tambem Archive Trap, Comba muito bem com Extirpate e Surgical Extraction, fora que cai sem pagar o custo. Eu particularmente uso no meu, e gosto muito do resultado.

I suggest using Sadistic Sacrament
