This list has helped me improve my Esper Mill so thank you! I really like use of Ethereal Haze rather than Darkness or Holy Day! I may also end stealing the Fragmentize, although I may stick with my Disenchants for the instant speed. The only suggestion I have is one recently made to me which is maybe some Mission Briefing for the Archive Trap recasts. Really cool deck though!

Psychorave I will admit that I was curious about using Mission Briefing but didn't ever give it too much thought. Gonna do some testing running them rather than Leyline of Anticipation since it's use here is minimal and the prospect of more Archive Traps is exciting.

Hey! Love looking at Mill brews. Just wanted to say that I think you could make good use out of some Field of Ruins since it forces the search that combo's with Archive Trap AND will trigger your Hedron Crab.

chessmaster102 Hey! Sorry to take so long to reply, had a lot to hand IRL these past few months. I hope you are finding the Path and Trap combo useful! Now for your suggestions. With regard to Mind Funeral I do agree that it tends to compare poorly against Glimpse the Unthinkable. I personally average about 12 cards with it, sometimes only 8 but other times a staggering 18. With many players running low land decks and thinning with fetches I find it's mid to late game impact thrilling. While I do see the appeal of Breaking, I prefer the higher potential payoff from Mind Funeral so I take the risk over consistency here. Moving on, you will notice by my edits that I also was unhappy with Memoricide. I had considered Sadistic Sacrament on your suggestion but was also not fully convinced. Once the GRN spoilers hit however I opted for the Unmoored Egos. And finally the universal suggestion for this deck. Hedron Crab is absolutely a good card in this deck. I expect that if it doesn't get removed you can net a solid 12 cards per game from it, if not more. I personally don't like the loss of flavor by including him however. Additionally I find any spell-based deck, but especially creature-less decks, are very immersive; and personally that immersion drives me to play my best. So rather than play Hedron Crab and/or Jace's Phantasms, I stack the deck with cantrips for some thinning. I really appreciate the feedback though and am glad to see someone else out there how enjoys some good Esper Mill!
