The Mind That Frayed Away (Mill)

Modern Combo Mill U/B (Dimir)




My prototype Mill deck. I'm not sure how competetive I want this deck, but I want it to be as good as it can and be fun to play.

Here are some interactions:

1.) Fraying Sanity is a complete All-Star in this deck. Cuts the amount that I mill in half and if I draw more than one than it's just bonkers. Glimpse the Unthinkable milling 20 cards? Okay. 30? 40? Yes please.

2.) Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip. The big problem with Mill Decks is that they often run out of juice. After Jace turns into Jace, Telepath Unbound, I suddenly double the amount of mill cards at my disposal with his - ability. His + ability can help defend us both, and his ult is a bit unnecessary but nice to have regardless. This is saying nothing of Prodigy's deck sifting ability.

3.) Ensnaring Bridge is to stall them, plain and simple. If they can't get rid of it they may as well just concede.

4.) Damnation is my best option for resetting a board state vs a creature heavy deck.

4.) Sphinx's Tutelage is a sneaky good mill card. Synergy with Jace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip and Visions of Beyond. Just unsure on if I should include it but I love the card so much.

5.) Hedron Crab is not included because I am not able to afford fetch lands sadly, and I already own most of the lands already included in the deck.

I haven't gotten to use this deck in a game yet but through the playtest option I can get reliable mills after 5-7 turns. The hardest part is obviously lasting that long and/or protecting Bridge. Please take a look, playtest, and don't be shy with the +1s and comments on how to improve the deck! I would also love for information to improve my sideboard.

There are obviously better mill decks out there, but this is the version that I love to play the most so I'm gonna stick with it.
