TorinoAK you can use Codex Shredder as a win condition, but you need to be using it in a different way than mill.

The second ability on Codex Shredder with infinite mana and a Rings of Brighthearth allows you to infinitely recur cards from your graveyard. This alone doesn't win, but can allow you to win if you have a card like Dimir Charm to mill out opponents.

It is an alternate to Goblin Cannon if that gets removed it all, but doesn't get around Rest in Peace / Arcane Laboratory / Rule of Law , etc.

It is useful to mill yourself in the same way you scry a card to the bottom. You don't need said card. Milling a land when you are on twelve or an Armageddon after you already have win and just need a counterspell to protect it is the use.

TorinoAK Codex Shredder isn't a wincon, it's there to mill the card that we put on top with Aminatou, the Fateshifter 's +1.

What are your thoughts on Crucible of Worlds and Codex Shredder ?

Vedalken Orrery can be swapped for your Panharmonicon , all the fast mana rocks should be included in. Codex Shredder enables a lot of stupid plays. I would also recommend Faith's Reward as well as another line to go infinite with, less mana intensive with Scrap Mastery and can also be done at instant speed as well. The mana base as well are direct upgrades. Necropotence is a great hand refill, but only if you have the mana base to provide consistently.

Hmmm for an alternative win con and such, I usually go for Future Sight + Paradox Engine + Sensei's Divining Top or Helm of Awakening to go into infinite draws. After that I would use a spell like Bitter Ordeal and recur it with Codex Shredder . Another line I go for is the Isochron Scepter + Dramatic Reversal in addition with Copy Artifact + Winds of Rebuke / Swan Song and go infinite mill or birdies.

If you add in Codex Shredder you can pretty much run a Krark-Clan Ironworks infinite mana combo with Scrap Mastery and mana rocks that produce at least .

Have you ever thought about running Scrap Mastery or Faith's Reward ? When used in conjunction with KCI, it leads to a lot of fun plays and triggers. Loop that in with Codex Shredder and any rock that produces two red you can lead to infinite ETB/LTB of your triggers and can go infinite with Breya as well.

Hope that helps!

I'm finding the land count just a bit low. Too many mulligans and games where I stall, so I'm looking to make cuts to fit in two to three Swamps.

Also, I made a couple of changes:

  • IN: Black Market
    • The first game after I added it was a five player game. By the time it was my turn again, Black Market had 16 counters on it.
  • OUT: Codex Shredder

    • Something had to go. Codex Shredder is fun and gives the deck additional recovery power, but I should be able to recover a few times without recursion.
  • IN: Butcher of Malakir

    • Grave Pact effects are so good in this deck, even a 7-mana creature version is worth it.
  • OUT: Rats of Rath
    • They're a sac outlet for Grave Pact, but they are probably the weakest Rat played in the deck. Worry not, they will return to the deck - keeping playable Rats is a priority, but Rats of Rath was the safest cut at the moment.
