Description

Always wanted to make a non-merfolk tribal blue aggro deck and this one I am pretty happy with. I think because of the Illusory Angel that it gets pushed to legacy format, but I'm playing around my kitchen table anyway. I'm pretty happy with the creatures, but I'll take any feedback that you guys have!

Card's such as Gitaxian Probe or Gut Shot can allow you to cast a spell on turn 3 and cast Illusory Angel , allowing you to by-pass the casting restriction. Vapor Snag can also allow you to keep you getting damage in early.

Mind Sculpt and Thought Scour aren't doing you any help from milling, you might even be helping certain graveyard based decks. How about Vapor Snag or Preordain instead? Remand or Mana Leak ?

The purpose of Mind Sculpt and Thought Scour was to get the 10 cards in their graveyard to make card:Jace's Phantasm retarded.

even though card:Jace's Phantasm is a great 1 drop beater that blue otherwise doesn't have I don't think having to cast at least 2 extra spells that have no other use other than to enable card:Jace's Phantasm is kind of a waste. those 7 extra slots could be going towards trying to control the field a bit.

Listen to Pheonix I have played a grave deck and mill decks made it too easy. You might get a +4/+4 but someone playing a Wreath of Geists would be getting better most likely. I have gone against people who would make me mill around 6 cards and because of my deck already being grave heavy due to Splinterfright I ended up with around a 14/14 on the field. Also green has a nasty Ghoultree which means you get a 5/5 while you give them a 10/10 that they may end up being able to turn into a 20/20 in one turn.

Mill and grave decks are always at odds. I could always go deeper into it and put in a couple of Sands of Delirium and some card:Tormod's Crypt in the side in case of grave decks. Well, this doesn't have a sideboard, because like i said this is mostly kitchen table stuff. For a FNM or something i would make up a sideboard, but i don't think there is much in the local meta for reanimator decks.

I like it. +1 for using Illusory Angel in your deck. While you're milling, Tome Scour would be a good mill card here.

that's it! that's totally worth looking at to make it more milling and give me mana options in the absence of an hourglass.
