Keening Stone Discussion

Not really sure about the budget as of now. I just tried to not have any cards besides 1 or 2 that were over 3 bucks. I'll probably cut those out two so I don't have much that cost over 2 dollars. It definitely feels like it's harder to keep EDH budget tho. Unfortunately, my bag of cards from childhood was mostly green but I have a few good blue ones too. I'll put all of the cards I have that could be good in the maybe board and move those really expensive ones to the acquire board. The ones as of now are just too much money but would be amazing, especially Bruvac the Grandiloquent . If the 100 card format doesn't work for mill I could try a modern. I tried a mill deck before but it was over 60 cards and didn't have enough creatures so I always died early. I figured with 40 life that I could last long enough to mill through though. Thats also why I put more creatures in this outline that also milled because it does what I want while providing some defense. Fleet Swallower and Keening Stone seems like a nice combo. I'm sure there are others in there as well. Other things I have noticed is that a lot of the black mill cards are self mill as well which I don't entirely understand so I stayed away from it. I think I like more of the cards that affect all opponents just because it won't feel like I have to mill one opponent and then the other. I'll also put out a 60 card outline today or tomorrow which may help you with seeing which cards I really want in there.

Maybe Keening Stone if you want to commit to mill

Ok, first things first: The description made me "chmmm" through my nose. This is beautiful. It seems you're planning on giving love to everyone until they deckout? If so, Keening Stone might be a great addition. Another cool peaceful wincon is Approach of the Second Sun. Laboratory Maniac and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries are obvious if you wish to win that way.
Great deck nonetheless.

Hi, it's me again! My budget version of Araumi (paper, not yet on TappedOut) makes use of Thassa's Oracle as a win condition; with so many infinite mill combos in here it could probably do some work.
Halimar Excavator is very good as well. In a 4-player game, encoring this will mill you 27 cards for 2 mana.
Traumatize? Maybe too slow.
Keening Stone. Probably too slow.
Anyway, love what you've done with Araumi, keep up the good work! I'm expecting her to become a frequent presence at tables, and your deck is definitely going to help!

This is an interesting list although I personally would suggest a few changes: Since you're running a playset of Hedron Crab I would suggest playing fetches, even cheap fetches such as Evolving Wilds andTerramorphic Expanse would be additions your deck could greatly benefit from due to the double Landfall-triggers and the way you'd thin out your deck (also, since your running the crabs I would suggest playing more lands in general, about 24 or so) Keening Stone and Traumatize are two other cards I would suggest replacing, if possible with Fraying Sanity and Archive Trap. Both would be cheaper, faster and over-all more efficient, I think. I'm also not too sure about the Nemesis of Reason... I think it might be too expensive and too easily removed I'm quite conflicted about Mind Sculpt and Tome Scour... I don't really think they work as well as they might seem in Modern, compare it to burn: if you're playing mill you have an enemy reserve of 60 to deal with, rather than 20 and while taking 5 cards out of a deck for 1 Mana might seem a lot, I don't think it really does much since you only hit once and that's that, once once scour has been used it's empty. I would suggest replacing them with permanents such as Curse of the Bloody Tome, Sphinx's Tutelage or, heck Jace's Erasure. That way you would only pay once and still mill every round.

Earwig Squad is annoying and can shut down combo decks, but has no synergy with the rest of the deck other than it's a rogue.
Thada Adel, Acquisitor can be very salty and combo-y, and I have no artifact combo decks in my playgroup.
Thieving Skydiver is too inconsistent.
Rootwater Thief is an interesting find! Seeing it errated to a Merfolk Rogue is new. Again, it doesn't really synergize with the deck.
Master Thief is again, inconsistent.
Gonti, Lord of Luxury didn't make the cut; I respect him as a commander, but don't want him in the 99.
I like your ideas about doing multiple sub-themes within the Rogue-tribal theme. I am attempting to do this by utilizing several straight-mill cards (Fleet Swallower, Traumatize, Keening Stone, and eventually the new one from ZR), as these synergize with our commander, and allow us to win either through damage or milling. Thank you for your interest in the deck! Your suggestions are greatly appreciated.

These ones made it into my blue/black mill deck. They were pretty useful.
This one would have made it if it wasn't so expensive at the time.
