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.

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.
