Extract from Darkness Discussion

coolguy0723 on Mill it over

I think you should cut Doorkeeper. He's your only defender creature so 3 mana and tap to mill one isn't a good payoff. Phenax, God of Deception will break the wallet a little bit but is a solid and a staple for mill. Extract from Darkness, Glimpse the Unthinkable, Psychic Corrosion, Mindcrank, and Riddlekeeper are some good options. Hope this helps as a fellow mill player!

Mindshrieker could potentially be a big flyer. Patient Rebuilding? Hedonist's Trove? Chancellor of the Spires? Mind Sculpt? Leyline of the Void so everything milled is exiled instead. Ashen Powder and Extract from Darkness are always fun in my mill deck.

Then there's always the Persistent Petitioners route...

bobpuluchi I have sort of the same deck. Try adding Grim Discovery , it combos with Archaeomancer and Memorial to Folly . Also I like Rise from the Grave , Rescue from the Underworld and Extract from Darkness for some triggers. +1 really liked the deck.

Try out Grave Betrayal , Extract from Darkness , or Graf Harvest . If you want to push more of a mill strategy, Fleet Swallower or Traumatize will get you some good targets. Paradox Haze seems a bit narrow with it effecting only 4 cards, one of which will make you burn through your deck very quickly.

Cuts: Sire of Stagnation , Dakmor Salvage , Connive / Concoct , Extract from Darkness , Stitch Together , and Victimize

Sire is slow and reliant on your opponents deliberately playing into it to get value. Dakmor is a land that enters tapped and is not needed to fill your grave since you can target yourself with Ashiok (and 22 lands is fine when you consider an adjusted average cmc). The other four are mediocre reanimation spells that are getting upgraded by the adds or are not efficient/versatile enough to run in addition to your signature spell.

Adds: Animate Dead , Necromancy

I'd recommend Glen Elendra Liege to support your faerie tribal theme and Extract from Darkness and Psychic Drain for the mill strategy. Mnemonic Betrayal could also serve you well.

Maybe you could do an +1/+1 counters version of aristocrats with Undying and cards like Epochrasite ... basically sacrifice them into a powerful engine before the end of everyone's turn.

Or... (here's one): Insurrection , Gonti, Lord of Luxury and Diluvian Primordial could be a "I play your cards" betrayal theme:
