Maddening Cacophony


Kicker (You may pay an additional as you cast this spell.)

Each opponent mills eight cards. If this spell was kicked, instead each opponent mills half their library, rounded up.

Some thoughts:

  • mill decks never want to run any creatures other than Hedron Crab and Ruin Crab. All these other creatures you’re running do nothing to help you mill, and end up being anti-synergies in your deck (you’re unlikely to win through combat damage, and by having these cards you’re just ruining your chances to win by milling either).

  • some of your mill cards are super sub-optimal. For instance Tome Scour is the equivalent of running Shock in a burn deck - both cards too to little to get the job done and just end up leaving you empty-handed while your opponent is still alive. Same goes for Mind Funeral… it does too little for its investment. Better options include Fractured Sanity, Maddening Cacophony, and Tasha's Hideous Laughter.

  • You currently have no form of interaction, which means you’re just going to get stomped on… even the fastest mill decks can’t outpace typical aggro/combo decks, and need to buy themselves time. I would expect to see cards like Fatal Push, Extirpate/Surgical Extraction, Drown in the Loch, and Crypt Incursion here.

Chukklz As this primer clearly states, this deck is Lovecraft inspired, as such, I am deeply ashamed that I forgot about this card haha.

I definitely need to find a way to make this work, the flavor is absolutely god-tier. This would be a thematic, climactic way to end an opponent. My only concern is that it only targets one opponent, and other spells around the same CMC can hit multiple opponents like a kicked Maddening Cacophony or Breach the Multiverse. I'll play around with it. Thanks for the suggestion!

Great suggestions Mr_Tobiah, thank you! All 3 of those cards have me spinning my wheels and I'm thinking on adding all 3...

  • Mesmeric Orb - I like that this card pulls double duty in getting Mimeo targets in my graveyard + seriously milling everyone else as they untap their lands etc. This will really punish the go wide token strats in my playgroup, heh.
  • Syr Konrad, the Grim - I was kind of iffy on this guy, but the 1 dmg to each opponent factor is pretty spicy, especially when paired with some of the splashier group mill cards (e.g. Maddening Cacophony or Mind Grind). Not a bad mana sink either.
  • Sepulchral Primordial - I think you're right! The ETB factor pairs well with my mill strat & the instant boon vs Sheoldred's slower grind makes a lot of sense here, good call.
  • Cyb3rguerrill0 on Dude, where are your cards? *WIP*

    Now let's add some flicker: Thassa, Deep-Dwelling, Ghostly Flicker, Deadeye Navigator (no budget though), Essence Flux and some other suggestions: one of my favorites is this one Maddening Cacophony, Drown in Dreams, Curse of the Swine of course. Keep it up, looks interesting.

    IHATENAMES on Ruin Ghost + Retreat to Coralheim landfall combo

    I would suggest more ways to find the combo. Think Opt maybe tweak a few cards to appear as uw control and suprise them game 1 with the combo.

    Ideas for digging on a budget:

    Supreme Will Censor Opt Omen of the Sea Remand Serum Visions

    Ideas to protect the combo pieces

    Blacksmith's Skill Slip Out the Back Spell Pierce

    I see no sideboard so here are a few ideas:

    Spreading Seas for tron

    Deafening Silence combo

    Mystical Dispute or in general, more counterspells

    Rebuild bounce artifacts like urza saga tokens

    A boardwipe like Wrath of God doesn't have to be that. Best is Supreme Verdict but there are plenty in white. Doomskar is one of the cheaper ones.


    alot of what I am suggesting is instant and sorcery. It could allow a Thing in the Ice  Flip plan B

    Or you have alot of walls in the list maybe make them swing with High Alert as a plan B

    Or less combo but more general mill which gets a little more expensive like Fractured Sanity Tasha's Hideous Laughter Fraying Sanity Maddening Cacophony

    Note Fraying Sanity Maddening Cacophony should mill your opp out when kicked.
