In my original iteration of this deck, I did run a pair of Dismembers in the sideboard. I found that it was more of a "responsive" card, and less proactive. I've had better success with the head on strategy. Admittedly, that method is a bit more cavalier and does come with some risk, but more often than not, by turn 4, I am able to get in with lethal and my opponent's are usually surprised by the amount of damage being done. Dismember is a fine answer, but as I said, I am less about answers and more about applied pressure to my opponent's life total. I checked out your build and it is solid. I would recommend Spellskite as it is a great psuedo sliver that can eat removal spells and pump spells. Thanks for the +1 and the suggestion.

Don't get me wrong, winning with a mill deck is a double edge sword. Many times, when I drop my first mill card until I play the winning one, many opponents give me this look of disbelief and frustration. Afterwards, many folks confide in me that they think the deck is cool, but it is something frustrating to play against (except dredge decks, they love mill decks).

I'm sure you will figure out the balance that works best for you. My mill deck is always in my bag whenever I go play, it's just one of those decks that folks love to hate, and hate to admit that they love. Don't get me wrong, winning is nice, but losing is far more important. If you always win, you never challenge yourself, you never learn to grow as a player. I think people aspire to have that deck that has all the answers, but they lose sight of having fun in the process.

When I tell folks I've only been playing for a couple years, I get some confused looks. I play technically well, but I never forget where I started. Win or lose, I will still shake my opponent's hand and ask them about their deck, not because I want to patronize them, but because just like them, I enjoy the game, and I love the variety that it offers. I think you have a fantastic outlook, and I can say with absolute certainty that Magic needs more folks like you. Friendly, engaging, and a genuinely cool person. As always, thanks for the reply. I enjoy being able to engage in conversations like this, while it is a game, more importantly, it is a community, and that community is what makes this game great. :)
