Description

Hi guys. I want to much to complete a Mill / Control deck based in discard. I made this first list, but please, help me with more ideas, suggestions, etc.

Need more draw cards suggestions too. This kind of deck, you must always have cards in hand i guess.

Thanks.

For the cards i included, here is what i use them for:

Supreme Verdict: Game cleaner. Will sure help me when the opponent have many creatures. As i have few creatures in my deck, won't hit me.

Tamiyo, the Moon Sage: Nice game holder.

Index: Arrange my game.

Thought Scour: I include it more for the draw card ability

Think Twice: Another draw card.

Dissipate: Counter something when i have no other removal in hand.

Terminus: Mass creature removal.

Detention Sphere: Great removal too.

Curse of Exhaustion: Holds opponents game a lot. Used before Cyclonic Rift, will sure break opponent game.

Jace, Memory Adept: Will be used to discard opponent deck.

Tablet of the Guilds: A way to recover my life.

Entreat the Angels: This puts into game strong 4/4 angels, that i can use either to kill opponent by life, or just hold in defense till its deck is over.

Mind Sculpt: Powerful discard. Maybe i should make room for some more of it.

Psychic Spiral: Can be a game ender. If i have lots of cards in my graveyard...

Undead Alchemist: Used mostly to remove opponents creatures discarded from game, and give my 2/2 zombies for defense.

Isperia, Supreme Judge: Help me draw cards.

Sphinx's Revelation: Draw cards option and recover my life.

Cyclonic Rift: self explainer card.

Glacial Fortress

Plains

Island

Updates

Update #1 — Oct. 3, 2012

  • 1 Entreat the Angels : Powerfull for game holding, and may give me an alternative way to win the game.
  • 2 Azorius Charm : Nice alternative to draw card or return to top of library. Returning it, opponent loses a draw turn.
  • 2 Syncopate : Needed few more counterspells.
  • 1 Jace, Memory Adept and Tamiyo, the Moon Sage : 3 were too much. 1 of each for side agains decks with planeswalker destruction spells.And added sideboard.

here are my comments.. First, a control deck with 22 lands in is too low...I'd bring it up to 25..+4 Hallowed Fountain i guess and -1 Island ..then in the mainboard, I'd also -1 Jace, Memory Adept , -1 Tamiyo, the Moon Sage , -2 Supreme Verdict , -1 Terminus , -2 Thought Scour ..perhaps I'd like to see Negate , Syncopate and Azorius Charm and also card:Jace's Phantasm...

law77 makes sence, ill try -1Tamiyo, the Moon Sage and -1 Jace, Memory Adept and adding those counterspell you suggested. I think its missing some draw cards in it too. Do you have any suggestion?

I suggest you add 2 more Thought Scour and 2 more Think Twice for some draw. You also have a lot of high cmc cards so I suggest adding in a few more lands as well. Your deck seems to have too many cards that don't really fit your goal so I suggest you cut some fat off. I like where your going at though, I have a pet project similar to what your trying to: Mind Lock. It might give you some ideas.

I like the ideas you have in here. Especially the curse + cyclonic rift idea. I might have to use that. +1

CrimsonKing yes, i'll try to add few more Thought Scour . That with the tamiyo's emblem, is game won. I'll make some changes, too, thanks for the tip.

no card:Jace's Phantasm?

Dream Twist isn't a bad idea either. It will net you card advantage due to it's flashback.

Neat deck. I'd almost want to see 1-2 more Index in the deck, as it combos so well with the miracle spells.

Charizard I use it as side because my main idea is not killing, is finishing opponents deck. And in almost every game i tested it, i didnt need creature to defend because i use to many creature removal e mass remove, so opponent won't have any creature, and as consequence, i wont be able to have too. Side i use it against fast decks

#11

CrimsonKing sure would. Would work nice in this deck. The main problem i see, i dont have any room for any card. Do you have any idea what could be removed? Thanks for the tip

#12

Thanks. Sure would be nice. I had 2 Index in this deck, the problem im facing is having no room for any other card. I wanted to tave +2 Azorius Charm in this deck too, but everything i remove, makes a bad difference. Any suggestion?

Remove Entreat the Angels ? It just doesn't seem to fit in here.

I actually won a multiplayer game once with both a tamiyo emblem and Dream Twist ha. Milled 2 players to death.

Also Feeling of Dread is very good with tamiyo. It can net you massive amounts of cards with her -2.

#16

Actually Entreat the Angels gives me and alternative way to win and a extreme powerfull defense. Getting it with miracle, 4 lands i can rave 2 4/4 Flying angels. They sure can defend... and in three turns can kill. Feeling of Dread I had it, but i changed for Azorius Charm , because i can either draw a card, or holding opponents game by putting the creature in top of the deck. So next turn, he will only buy the same creature again. Nice hold i guess.

Nice deck, I came across it while scoping out the new budding RTR competition for my (currently proxied) new build. I was struck by how similar your core strategy was to mine but instead of simply posting a comment I thought it would be more fair to share what I had so far in hopes of it helping you a bit more.

+1 for sharing yours, you contributed to getting the Undead Alchemist s from the back-burner to the main deck.

This deck Plays really nice, but is just dying too easy for zombies, and fast aggros. Any ideas?

Kraken Hatchling and Fog Bank . I've tested my deck against rakdos/vamp agro and it held up favorably especially after sideboarding for nevermore if they have Slaughter Games

#21

put Rest in Peace in the sideboards to avoid Gravecrawler s from coming back and other undying creatures such as card:Geralf's Messenger, Vorapede and Strangleroot Geist ..
