Welcome!
I love mill. I like to try and diversify and streamline the effectiveness of the meta, beyond the usual UB mill.

Many are of my own design; some are inspired by others'. In either case, if you love mill, you're in the right place.

Questions and comments are welcome; and (as always) +1's preciated.

Enjoy!

I have something silly like this.

I'm not trying to advertise here, but you may get some card/play suggestions from Mill Myself Indulgence. It's sole purpose is to use Laboratory Maniac as the wincon.

I like this build. It feels reliable and effective. +1

Instead of chronic flooding, I would use something more consistent like Jace's Erasure to synergize with Visions of Beyond and Thought Scour. I would suggest Sphinx's Tutelage, but at a 3 cost, it seems too slow for this build.

You may want to consider Manic Scribe as well, for a more static mill approach while you concentrate your mana on milling or drawing.

No no. I'm not saying don't use Breaking, just use Breaking in your list. Take out the Entering side of Breaking/Entering. See how that works? You don't need to use all of a split card for a list. This will keep your cmc and color wheel accurate.

If you want some mill decks to gander at, stop by my profile page.

First, you're not running red, so take the "/entering" out of your card list. It's throwing off your mana curve.

I noticed you are trying to stay budget so I won't mention the obvious mill cards and modern staples that would make this 2-3 hundred dollars more.

Drop the Consuming Aberrations for a list of reasons I won't get into here. Basically, you'll never use them effectively. Some Fog Banks would help you.

Trade out the Nightveil Specters for some Hedron Crabs they work better with your archetype and for the average game length.

Drop Mind Grind for Tome Scour. Grind looks good.. it isn't.

You can do better than Memory Sluice, with Thought Scour. An archetype fitting "mill 2 + draw" for 1 can't go wrong here with your spells at rapid fire after turn 3.

If you get the chance, obtain some Visions of Beyond it's taylor made for a mill deck like this. I believe 3 would suffice.

Nice budget build. I had something very similar a long time ago.
