Mullac on mono blue mill

BLOODGUILT graveyard decks in modern have decreased due to the recent banning of Faithless Looting but Ashiok, Dream Render is an amazing card to have as it stops searching abilities including fetch lands.

A better Jace could be Jace, Memory Adept but if you're on a budget that is understandable. However, if you are not on a budget, I suggest looking at Blue/Black mill decks which incorporate mill cards with removal.

I won’t go into as much detail here, but here goes:

1) Traumatize - I love this card so much. It was the card I built around when I built my first real MTG deck. There’s nothing like milling half your opponents deck on turn five (rounded up of course!).

2) Fraying Sanity - This card comes at a close second because of course milling half someone’s deck is fun, but what if you could mill the whole thing in one turn?

3) Startled Awake  Flip - I used this in conjunction with Startled Awake (see above) and I once milled 52 cards in one turn. Talk about 52 pickup, heh.

4) Hero's Downfall - Because who doesn’t love instant speed planeswalker and creature removal for three mana?

5) Tome Scour - Loved turn one mill five, straight up ruins combo decks.

6) Languish - Some relatively cheap board wiping? Great removal vs. an established token deck boardstate? Hell. Yes.

7) Psychic Corrosion - I love drawing cards. I love drawing cards and having my opponent punished in addition to it.

My planeswalker I’d have run this deck? Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver or Jace, Memory Adept . It’s hard to choose just one in this instance since I used both for such a long time.

I look forward to seeing other’s choices!

Hej hej,

I am Corbeau and just started to put my decks on here. I play casually with a nice playgroup. We don't play very competetive and love combo decks. I am usually the person with nearly no removal because I always think that if it doesn't help my strategy it isn't a card for my deck and I want the others to have fun, too. Also I feel restricted in my creativity when I think about the meta or so. So quite often I am in a race to get my deck going and keep my stuff because others don't hesitate do remove everything on my side. I love weird and janky deck strategies. The decks I have at the moment are the ones I play and the one that survived all the building of decks. Very often it is more brewing than playing because we don't get together that often and the EDH community in my city is very competetive. I prefer an environment in which people have fun and don't flame each other all the time.

My Decks at the Moment:

EDH: Alesha, Who Smiles at Death (Aristrocrats) Prime Speaker Zegana (Draw Combo) Prime Speaker Vannifar (Podless Pod) Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons (-1/-1 Counters) Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (Any Counters] Kess, Dissident Mage (Spellslinger) Ghave, Guru of Spores (+1/+1 Counters) Kambal, Consul of Allocation (Lifedrain Prison) Omnath, Locus of Rage (Landfall/Elemental) Daxos the Returned (Enchantress)

Oathbreaker: Saheeli, Sublime Artificer (Artifacts) Jace, Memory Adept (Milling) Liliana, Death's Majesty (Zombies) Liliana of the Dark Realms (Ramp/Shades) Kaya, Ghost Assassin (Flicker/Token)

Former Decks (I hope I remember all):

EDH: + Atraxa, Praetors' Voice (All cards with counters) Sun Quan, Lord of Wu (Milling) + The Scarab God (Milling) + Tetsuko Umezawa, Fugitive (Only power 1 or less/Tokens) Talrand, Sky Summoner (Spellslinger) Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet (gravepact) Kozilek, the Great Distortion (Eldrazi) Sidisi, Brood Tyrant (Milling) Sidisi, Brood Tyrant (Reanimator) Teshar, Ancestor's Apostle (Historic/Reanimator) Nin, the Pain Artist (Artifacts) Nin, the Pain Artist (Milling) Odric, Lunarch Marshal (White Weenie) + Masako the Humorless (Historic/ Throne of the God-Pharaoh ) Padeem, Consul of Innovation (Artifacts) + Kiku, Night's Flower ( Kiku's Shadow / Ragged Veins ) Grenzo, Havoc Raiser (Spellsnatching) Sydri, Galvanic Genius (Beautiful Art/Control) Tatyova, Benthic Druid (Beautiful Art/Copy/Draw/Token) Karlov of the Ghost Council (Lifedrain) Obzedat, Ghost Council (Lifedrain) + Obzedat, Ghost Council (Flicker/Token) Akiri, Line-Slinger / Ludevic, Necro-Alchemist (Artifacts/Non-Voltron)

Sadly many of my decks didn't work because of the meta and power level in my playgroup but some were so much fun to play. Favorites marked with + at the front.

I will try to upload the decklists of my current decks. If you have questions about any of the former decks or anything just ask.

So, a couple things: 40 lands is too many for this deck, I'd go down to 38 or maybe even 37 because of the new mulligan rule. I'd also work on the balance of mana based on the colors you have in the deck, taking out some Swamps and replacing them with Islands, and maybe trying to find a few more dual lands because you don't really gave too many and having mostly basics will make it easy for you to get color screwed. Maybe a few more artifacts like a Dimir Signet , Sol Ring for obvious reasons, and Fellwar Stone , stuff like that.

It also seems like you're stuck between Faerie tribal and mill. Personally I'd go with mill, because it's probably cheaper. You can take out cards like Final-Sting Faerie , Nectar Faerie , Quickling , Thornwind Faeries , Wasp Lancer , Distant Melody , Bident of Thassa , Violet Pall , and Faerie Tauntings . You could put cards like Jace, Wielder of Mysteries , Fraying Sanity , Jace, Memory Adept , Sire of Stagnation , Hedron Crab (I have one of these that you can use), Lazav, Dimir Mastermind , Notion Thief , and Nemesis of Reason in order to strengthen your mill plan, and if you wanna win with tokens out of nowhere, you can put in Scion of Oona to keep your tokens safe.

I would also put in some more removal, like Murder , Cast Down , Rapid Hybridization , Go for the Throat , Hero's Downfall , or similar cards. I really like the inclusion of cards like Crypt Incursion and Startled Awake  Flip, because those are just really cool cards. This deck has potential, I think you made a really solid first draft.

I love mill, I love people playing mill. I went overboard on my own mill deck -Mission Brief Trap. but there are a ton of ways to play Mill.

This appears to be a first deck/budget deck, which means that while Flooremoji's suggestions are very powerful, they're likely not the next step for this deck. You already have Glimpse the Unthinkable , which is a powerhouse but probably want a selection of higher powered budget options. Below is a good selection of the most efficient mill cards that won't break the bank and will allow you to customize the deck to your personal play-style, whether that is control or it is card-burn. You're already using some of these, but any of these would be more efficient than Compelling Argument , Mind Sculpt , Drowned Secrets and Psychic Corrosion .

(Please not that despite what is mentioned above, that crab is not the only mill creature to see some competitive success.)

Best budget mill cards:

The problem with Jace, Memory Adept , Lilliana Vess, Fleet Swallower , Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker , Szadek, Lord of Secrets and The Haunt of Hightower is their casting cost. You need to not be tapped out during your opponents turn anytime on or after turn 4. You want to have Instant speed milling, creature removal available. All these cards require you to go shields down likely without immediately winning the game (in fact, it is impossible for Fleet Swallower to win you the game). This applies to your 4 drop creatures as well, but they, at least, are more likely to be able to be cast in later turns without tapping out.

Your remaining card slots should use your favorite removal spells mixed with card draw and spells to keep you alive.

Vraska the Unseen doet te weinig als ze het board raakt. Het enige wat ze kan doen is een creature slopen. In multiplayer is dat misschien niet genoeg.

Liliana, Death Wielder is begrijpelijk met proliferate. Alleen heb je niet genoeg om het leuk te maken. En als je geluk hebt met genoeg proliferate dan heb je waarschijnlijk liever een andere planeswalker

Kiora, the Crashing Wave +1 is niet genoeg om je planeswalker te beschermen. De -1 is 'leuk'. Maar is 4 mana voor de draw het waard?

Je hebt Jace, Memory Adept & Jace, the Living Guildpact erin om dieper door de deck heen te gaan. Maar is het leuke idee niet dat je permants de graveyard ingaan vanaf het veld?

Davriel, Rogue Shadowmage is begrijpelijk maar het geeft je tegenstander de keus. Daardoor wordt het ene stuk minder. De passive is niet genoeg om de kaart te beschermen of je tegenstander tegen te houden.

En ik zou de instanst eruit halen en dan als er ruimte is dan boardwipes erin te doen.

Thanks everyone. This was originally the Dimir Guild kit and i liked the mill effects so i started upgrading with cards i had.

I had Liliana Vess for her discard and search abilities.

Jace, Memory Adept was for his 0 ability I figure if i could keep him alive for just 2 turns thats 20 cards.

I like Fleet Swallower cause it mills half the library but its so expensive it would be a late game.

Etrata, the Silencer was for creature exile and alternative wincon.

The Haunt of Hightower was for discard and to have a beefy creature for defense.

The other creatures were basically milling but i feel like to actually get them to mill would be to much work.

I definitely want to add Hedron Crab and I'll look into the other suggestions.

This is my first real attempt at playing Blue so I'm still learning how to use the cards. I originally played an Orzhov life game deck. I'll have to readd it on here later.

Take a look at Traumatize , Fact or Fiction , Jace, Memory Adept , Fraying Sanity , Increasing Confusion , Bond of Insight , Duplicity and maybe Fleet Swallower .

Some nice combos with Tunnel Vision are Conjurer's Bauble and Canal Dredger . I believe you can ignore the drafting rules text (especially if you're playing casually).

Looking at some random cards on the database I saw Disciple of the Ring . Could be fun.

Those are all possibilities. I'm not particularly knowledgeable about self-mill.

Also, and I know many would disagree with this, but I have a soft spot for Fog Bank .
