Hi!

As far as budget alternatives, here are my suggestions:

As for your suggestions, I kind of like Archmage's Charm for the utility of its second mode. The only problem I have with it is its mana cost which can sometimes be awkward, making the spell not always consistent. I don't really like Dimir Charm . It's first mode is rarely useful as oftentimes we want to counter removal spells directed to Lazav during our turn, and those are almost always instants. The second and third modes are okayish, but other spells do the same things better. I do get that this is a versatile spell, giving you the option to do three different things, but I believe that dedicated spells will serve you better. If the first mode gave you the option to counter an instant spell I would consider it, but as is it's not ideal. Also, I'm not a huge fan of Force of Negation in this deck. The moment you want to be able to counter spells is often during your turn, when you are trying to kill a player and that player is trying to disrupt you. In that case, Force will be useless as it won't be free. On the other hand, it's also true that if you manage to kill an opponent, chances are you are forced to tap out. This leaves you vulnerable to disruption during the other players turns, and in this case Force will come in handy. I don't know. I'm not fully convinced, but I could change my mind.

I will be checking your own deck and give you some feedback!

Working on my own build, using your list as heavy inspiration. I love it, and can't wait to kick ass with it. Do you have any budget options for some of the higher priced cards? If you'd be so kind to check my deck out, I'd appreciate it. It's Dirty Shapeshifting Tactics.

What are your thoughts on Archmage's Charm could be handy as a utility counter spell. What about Dimir Charm , which can be used to get rid of pesky, small creatures, take care of a sorcery, or manipulate either your or your opponents top deck. And Force of Negation seems like a perfect card to have in the deck.

1/ Remand - I really enjoy these quirky tempo cards and the tempo archetype is exemplified by this card.
2/ Ephemerate - I like blinking a lot as a mechanic and this does it twice.
3/ Dimir Charm - so many good options on this one, it is quickly becoming my number 1 charm.
4/ Delay - similar to number 1, I like quirky counterspells that require a certain deck to be good.
5/ Fact or Fiction - i like interactive cards like this one.
6/ Brainstorm - a classic card that needs no introduction, but requires a lot of skill to master.
7/ Selvala's Stampede - the Conspiracy multiplayer mechanics are one of my favorite and this card has won me too many games.

8/ Venser, the Sojourner - simply the best planeswalker ever. Too bad he dead.

Circu, Dimir Lobotomist would just add another dimension to this deck.

I would want a few more removal spells, like Fatal Push .

Dimir Doppelganger could bean extra way to cheat high cmc creatures onto the field.

Glimpse the Unthinkable is useful in any mill deck.

Aid the Fallen can get spells back from the graveyard.

I would definitely try to work in Ashiok, Dream Render .

God-Pharaoh's Statue is just mean.

Other non-mill cards that I would consider are Thief of Sanity (disrupt), Telling Time , Dimir Charm , Spark Double , Kaya's Ghostform and Narset's Reversal

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.

If you can't afford surgical, Ravenous Trap does a good impression.

There is also an alternative for budget mill- dont' play like a burn deck, play like midrange/control.

Mind Grind , Mind Funeral and Grindclock s are enough to win a game on their own, if they are paired with a decent control package.

Cards like Languish , Mana Leak , Dimir Charm , Memory Plunder etc then try to buy yourself as much time as possible. You will want to plan out your sideboard carefully- 'side 15' works wonders with this, swapping low impact cards for marginally more useful (languish for negates for example) does a lot. If you are also digging for the combo kill, some Despise or Duress should carry the rest through. There are also marginal 'pillow fort' options that are low price because they have to compete with Ensnaring Bridge - Storage Matrix in particular can work well. Haunting Echoes is an interesting option for mill, often killing combo-reliant decks dead.

If that isn't your jam Shriekhorn will help speed things up.

I would add more creatures, you don't have a ton of offense. Maybe Balefire Liege or Deathbringer Liege , they combo really well with Niv. I know you don't like it, but funnily enough Urban Evolution might fit. theres also the classic Countersquall if you decide you dont like Dimir Charm (which I don't). Deathsprout would also be a nice fit

I don't love Ethereal Absolution Ancient Excavation or Treacherous Terrain . I don't know how important the land cycling is in the cuts im recommending (I'm guessing very) but I like Torrent of Souls over Grave Upheaval and I don't think the cycling justifies these cards
