Looking for ETB Mill card
Posted on June 24, 2018, 8:18 a.m. by BS-T
I'm wondering if there's anything I can use which has 'when a creature etb, Mill an/all opponents' or even all players including you wouldn't be the worst.
There are some infinite combos with Grinding Station, but that requires Artifact creatures.
Halimar Excavator only works with allies.
Thassa's Devourer for enchantment creatures.

Thanks for the ideas, I wonder how far I can go into enchantments to use Thassa's Devourer.
Actually with the enchantment theme I could use Riptide Chimera too.

Honestly, the best milling creature might be Consuming Aberration. It's not ETB, but it's extremely effective.

Good creatures for the list. Is there anything else that triggers when your guys ETB/LTB like Altar of the brood?

Oblivion Sower is almost what you want. If you can't find enough of what you actually want, it wouldn't be a bad choice

Just to be clear, Oblivion Sower's ability triggers while he's on the stack, not when he enters the battlefield. Otherwise I'd have built a flicker deck and abuse him when he first came out.

^ True. That is exactly why I only suggested him as an almost
