This Deck is fantastic. Hits me right in the nostalgia.

Thank you SayoKel! It's been in the works for me to make a modern competitive mill deck for about 15 years. It's nice to see wizards printing some decent cards for it. I think there's a need for mill in a competitive setting. Any idiot can do direct damage with burn, and trample with muscle; it takes answers and forethought to win with mill.

How consistent is it? I'm new to competitive play.

I run light on land compared to most decks (My formula is: CMCx7=L, but L cannot be <18). Droughting is only a problem about 5-7% of the time. Since the deck's avg cmc is so low, I can win a game with 2 mana.
Mill consistency is great, and with the control improvements I've added (haven't playtested the current list yet) it feels to have improved it's overall solidarity. Thanks for asking.
I wish I could provide more info on how it playtests against the meta decks of Modern, but unfortunately, I live in a hick town, bereft of LGS's and players of competitive caliber.

Thanks for the info. I'm definitely going to run this once I get the money for it.

Rejoice, friend, I just took out 2x Snapcaster Mage. LOL

This is incredible. Most attempts at mill I've seen stray so far away from the heart of the strategy that I lose interest, but this execution is both true to form and practical.

AtAoekt- I am humbled by your kind words! Really! High praise doesn't seem to come to mill often (playas hatin' on mill), so that means a lot. This has been in the works for me for about 12 years, it's like watching a child grow. LOL

beebsman- interesting, it calls to mind Ghost Quarter, a card that has been bounced in and out of this deck, but without the guarantee of a lib search. I'm not crazy about the colorless mana, as it is the reason I took out Quarter in the first place. But, this might just have a place in here. Thanks for the heads up, man!

No worries mate! I think it'll be great in this deck, the 2 mana's not an issue, as it replaces itself. The beauty of it is that it forces a search, as opposed to Paths and GQ's may.
Maybe it's best for the sideboard, as a secret weapon. Game 1, your opponent is unsuspecting of your Paths & GQ's. Game's 2 & 3 are when you will need to force the Trap trigger.

osotogari Interesting thinking, but I'll stick with it in the MB, as I don't have the room in the SB for it.

You can always add Fraying Sanity to cut down on the excessive amount of mill spells you need.

NCN946- see the update from September 2nd. This explains why it is not inculuded.

beebsman- Thanks for asking. Darkness is actually one of my favorite cards for U/B mill, but since I've gone esper, I've dedicated white mana to defense as most of my mill spells require UB to cast. Furthermore, it stops ETB or triggered damage effects from creatures, not just combat damage.
