Check out my decklist. Its pretty much what most tournament-winning mill decks run. The only exception is I believe in the power of Mesmeric Orb more than others, but I think the constant value outweighs moving those 3 slots into other cards. The ultimate tip a mill player can embrace is to always focus on milling and not get distracted by too many other game elements.

Im experimenting with Founding the Third Path however it works well with Mesmeric Orb's self-milling, hitting copies of Tasha's Hideous Laughter or Fractured Sanity that hit your graveyard. At worst, you hit a Fatal Push, Drown in the Loch or Visions of Beyond

Bruvac the Grandiloquent is not modern legal. The closest effect we have to that in modern is Fraying Sanity.

+1 I don't know about Founding the Third Path. It doesn't hit anything good except glimpse ETB. Mill 4 is meh. Ch. 3 is OK but I think you just want 4 copies of Tasha's Hideous Laughter. Check out Ashiok, Dream Render for SB. Maybe a copy of Psychic Corrosion could make the MB.

Icbrgr so I started at 23 lands and 4 delve spells. I’ve got around 30,games with it and I keep flooding/not drawing enough delve spells. It breaks conventional wisdom but it’s pretty understated just how well Founding the Third Path finds/fuels your delve spells. The deck is surprisingly smooth

Skysurfer while true, it doesn't work toward getting things into the grave. Now, if it went to the grave instead of the bottom of library, it would be amazing. Founding the Third Path is the only way it would be cast from the grave and between Persist Unmarked Grave and Smallpox there are already plenty of targets

I'm really skeptical of this gameplan. From what I can tell you're hoping to cast either Ardent Plea or Shardless Agent and cascade into either Founding the Third Path or Resurgent Belief. The problems here are:

  • If you cascade into Founding the Third Path, you're likely only using it to try and get enchantments into the grave (it's first activation does nothing for you, so I assume you always read ahead to chapter 2). But from milling 4 cards you're only going to average putting 1.46 enchantments into the grave, which feels like really low value. And then it's 3rd chapter also does nothing for you. This feels like a really, really poor card to use with this current deck.

  • If you cascade into Resurgent Belief, you have the problem that your deck has no really easy way to get enchantments into the grave... you might only have a single copy of either Shark Typhoon or Colossal Skyturtle in there at best.

My current feeling is that you need to be doing a lot more to be putting your enchantments into the graveyard, as currently you have almost no way to do that, and they're just going to be stuck in your hand doing nothing. I also don't see how Founding the Third Path helps you at all here.
