Thanks for the comments VampDemigod. My primary way to win is to combo off using the Mindcrank + Duskmantle Guildmage combo or the Painter's Servant + Grindstone \ Sphinx's Tutelage combo. Otherwise I can just make lazav copy a fat creature and equip some swords and go for Voltron win.

Great concept. I’m curious to see the primer. My recommendations: Duskmantle Guildmage combos with Mindcrank for the win. We will want to avoid fueling graveyard decks such as Muldrotha and Gitrog, so Leyline of the Void may be in order. Also, perhaps consider a few blue wheel effects. I’ve always loved Sygg. I run him from time to time in my Legacy Fish deck for consistent card draw.

Wow, great work MagicalHacker. Reformatted with card links and averages (rounded up) of the range of decks the combos are in. I figure a single number for each 2 card combo makes it easker to tally up and figure percentages later. So 120,411 two-card combos total.

i am curious to see how Duskmantle Guildmage doesnt become an autowin. if you have 3 mana on field you should be able to put it on field and activate it's first ability in response to any card they play. unless they win on top of that, they will be milled to death.

also how does ramp work? if i play Rakdos Keyrune and Rakdos Signet while i have a mountain and a swamp out, can i play a Bedevil? if i tap my mountain to pay for Rakdos Signet's ability to play Bedevil, can i play a second Bedevil using Rakdos Keyrune or does the fact that my mountain is tapped mean i can't get mana from it anymore?

i also see a lot of storm decks getting really gross from this. single island into every 1 mana cantrip in the game, throw in a Simian Spirit Guide and and go for Grapeshot. not optimized obviously but the idea is there. actually i see this mostly devolving into combo decks that attempt to win on turn 1 or 2. outside of legacy with Force of Will i don't see a way that people stop this. you mention that there are ways to counter guildmage and that we'd be surprised by the gameplay which makes it sound like you have played against others in this theoretical format. how did you and others keep these combo decks at bay?

Are Simic Guildgate the same as Tropical Island? Can i play Child of Alara if i have 1 City of Brass and 4 Island?

Does Duskmantle Guildmage straight up win you the game?

Nice deck. This may not at all be what you want to do with the deck, but Duskmantle Guildmage can be a very effective way of winning, often draining the opponent out in one turn when Fraying Sanity is on the field. Again, not sure if this is what you’d want for the deck, you seem more focused on pure mill plan so this might not fit, just maybe something to consider.

Valius on UB Mill

1 month ago

I’ve played Phenax mill for a while, and he works really well as a defensive deck with Wall creatures and milling at the end step. Creatures such as Wall of Frost, Glacial Wall, Guardians of Meletis, Wall of Junk, etc. Slap a Slagwurm Armor on one of those puppies and someone’s deck will be hurting. Illusionist's Bracers then make a creature double mill, which could mean game over if on your Consuming Aberration.

Additionally, Crawlspace and Collective Restraint can keep you safe while you just mill away.

Other cards that get stupid powerful in this kind of deck are Wight of Precinct Six, Mortivore, and Eater of the Dead who can mill potentially infinitely (especially with the aforementioned equipment cards).

And last thing is to turn mill into damage - Duskmantle Guildmage, Bloodchief Ascension are great, and don’t forget about Mindcrank!

Best part is most of these are very affordable, others look like they've gone up in price a bit since I got them, and even adding just a few can beef up Phenax because they all synergize with him alone.

REDCAPS on When yuriko does a mighty flip and everyone dies

Wow my run of Yuriko looks different from yours. I run the infinite combo of Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank. I also run Nexus of Fate, Beacon of Tomorrows and Omniscience. It's funny when my opponents are tapped out and forgot that I had Omniscience out.
