maxon- Honestly, I don't know! Lol. I made this a while back and figured it was time.to work on it before I build it. I usually let the community playtest and leave feedback, I tweak, perfect, then purchase or trade.
Thanks for the kind words. I build these decks for people like you and I. Not necessarily competitive, but different and definitely more fun than the hum-drum meta. Throw me an upvote and remember to play wisely!

Sorry, no card can be "good" or "bad" in a vacuum. It depends on the cards in which you play it in conjunction with.
But, as a reasonable person, I'm willing to humor you. Tell me why Wanderer is better than Mummy for this deck.
Anyone can say one card is "better" than another when put side by side, but if my wincon doesn't include my opponent losing life every time a creature enters, then no sir, a "ETB tapped" chump blocking Wanderer is not superior to a wincon supporting Mummy for this build.
While you're here, tell me again why I should put more 3 cost spells in here as well? Look at my curve, and tell me, would more 3 cost creatures speed this deck up, especially after you suggest more 1 & 2 drops? No.
If you can't give me reasons why a card will work better, then you don't understand what the deck does.

Good for you ellie-is, for having the stones to take a homebrew to a tourney!
I agree the Modern meta is a bit of a stale loaf as far as diversity, so when a homebrew doesn't do well, I still have a great amount of respect and admiration for said player.
I can't offer you any advice that would make this work competitively in the meta, but if I could, I would upvote it again on principle.

frogkill45- Thanks for the input! Thing in the Ice Flip is more of a sideboard card, after playtesting with it, I found that I was more often than not, hurting myself by returning the aggressors I'm pumpimg, to my hand.

ShiftyJeans- I have considered it, but Tbh, I'm just not really worried about it. The cmc is low enough and there are few enough nonbasics that I won't have to worry about flooding in colorless. I like to keep the deck a bit more budget being that it's more casual. Even the Mutavault even seems unnecessary IMO, but clearly improves the stability of the deck.
Thanks for the suggestion!

cplvela0811- Thanks for the inpu, and moreso for the upvote!
It would be a great addition to the deck. I simply don't have any, so it never crossed my mind. I'm not crazy about adding another colorless mana to the deck, but I'll put it in the list for a future trade.

Jordensmash- Thanks! This is not an overwhelmingly aggro deck and 3 costs are becoming a majority and muddling my curve; thus, I want to keep pump creatures to a minimum. They offer deathtouch which is more evasion than removal for this engine.
Large numbers of zombies is the alt wincon, should the lifesteal fail.
Don't forget to hit that +1 while you're here!

PickleNutz- It won't win against Tiered decks. His description was very clear that Mill isn't viable in Modern. But, y'know, we'll label this "competitive" anyway, and act like it's never lost when getting advice.

PickleNutz- Frankly, I'm not sure what Peisistratos is trying to do either, here. Labels this a "competitive deck" but then clearly states that mill isn't competitive. Wants feedback, but takes NONE into consideration..
He's an arrogant prick that doesn't want to hear he hasn't built the perfect deck

Vergil_Redgrail- I appreciate the concern. But I don't have to worry any more than Dredge would. Granted, dredge has better removal, but I do have permanent removal in the SB for enchantments and artifacts.
I will state that this is a competitive casual deck. It has found a nice balance of being both fun and effective. I would take this to my local modern meta for a tourney for giggles, but I don't look for it to place.

Basically Confusion is a crappy mill card.
May 7, 2017 2:26 p.m.
And with your Erasures in here, Thought Scour might do you better than Increasing Confusion. May I also suggest Manic Scribe? It makes a great chump-blocker, and can do a LOT for you once you're delirium kicks in.
Nice clean build though!

1. I wasn't aware of it.
2. I don't have any.
3. 3-cost. If it gifted Menace as it ETB until the end of turn, or permanently, or without tapping, sure. However, paying 3, waiting through an upkeep, then paying 2 more for a one-turn Menace gift, isn't a good card. And, as stated, the deck has nearly too many 3-cost creatures already.

mattman856- Thanks for taking the time!
Perilous Myr feels weird in here, but really helps the lifeloss wincon or adds a bit to removal in the deck. I tested it last night at FNM, and it played really well with the Myrs in it. Until a 2-cost Zombie comes out with the same effect, Perilous Myr is staying in here.
Grasp of Darkness is too limited for a 2 cost. I would probably just put in more hard removal like Fatal Push or Victim of Night if it came down to it. There's enough removal in the MB for first game antics Atm. Additional defense is in the SB.
Death Baron is a utility card, and an expensive one. His deathtouch gift ability is cool but I only need one on the board for it to take. As for his +1/+1 pump: I'm not here to make huge zombies to beat with, I'm here to steal life as I make medium zombies in formidable numbers. That being said, a 4 set of Death Baron will not boost my archetype enough, and throw my curve to the high end, to justify a $40 addition to the deck.
Thanks for your input!

dsagent- I have considered it, but with a $45 price tag, that's about all I'm gonna do. Besides, countering zombies just puts them in the GY and that's something I don't mind with this deck. ;-)

Yoshiman- Unfortunately, as a family man (I'm an old guy, father of two with a full time job), I don't have the expendable income or time to be buying the booster boxes others can, to dive into a forever-changing format and keep up with it. I'm afraid I would be of no use to you.
But good luck!
