Weird Mill Thing I'm Tweaking




Instant (3)

Creature (3)


The goal is to put the opponent's library in their grave. Fraying Sanity puts a lot of oomph into your mill cards while everything else is there to either counter opposing spells or cycle into good stuff. Abandoned Sarcophagus nets more value by letting us play our cycled cards as well. The only issues I see right now are exactly what ratios one might want for their spells (like "why not four Dispel in the mainboard or just one Sarcophagus), and the fact that at the end of the day it's still a mill deck.

I feel like you are slightly short on lands, purely because your sideboard and finishers are kind of expensive mana wise. Even adding one more Ipnu Rivulet would increase your mana reliability while allowing you to sac it for mill in the late game. If you don't get enough land in your opening hand, you won't be able to card-draw into more.

need at least 21 lands, dispel should be negate, negate hands down affects more spells mainboard than a dispel. i would drop Vessel of Paramnesia for 3 more lands. River Serpent is would replace with Cryptic Serpent if you wanted to have a creature, however Sphinx of the Final Word is prolly the best finisher

I can see where the sparse land count might throw off my game, but the cycling cards are incredibly useful at not only drawing into spells but also lands. I could probably up the land count to 20 with another Ipnu Rivulet and Island by dropping a couple of Vessels without too much trouble though. frogkill45, the finisher is supposed to be straight mill, and River Serpent helps find our mill cards quickly, but I could see Cryptic Serpent in the sideboard somewhere.
