Hey love the deck + video. Just curious about a few cards and your thoughts on if they make the deck: Vantress Gargoyle Riddlekeeper Undead Alchemist Jace's Archivist Manic Scribe

Also you will probably likes these :) Court of Cunning Maddening Cacophony

depending on how many opponents you plan to take on at once, I'd recommend dropping etrata, the silencer and traumatize for Maddening Cacophony, along with Ruin Crab, and / or Manic Scribe

Hi friend :) If your goal is to win at turn 5 I suggest you to remove Consuming Aberration is too mana expensive, you probably can cast her on turn 5-7, so it's a "win more" card. I suggest you to play creatures that just mill more, like Manic Scribe or Ruin Crab. If you have not fetches you can play Field of Ruin instead of Ghost Quarter, very strong to activate Archive Trap and to proc landfall. Another good card is Thieves' Guild Enforcer that is a removal and a good body creature, that mills too! I see that you play Fraying Sanity so I suggest you to play Maddening Cacophony, great combo to close late game :) If you want you can check my deck too :) Competitive UB mill modern (2020)

@ThisIsMyAccount makes sense. Do you think it’s an idea worth considering to remove 4 crabs in favor of 2 Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver and 2 Manic Scribe? I’d rather not fiddle with my lands, and I also just realized that any turn I play a fetch land the crab would mill twice for 6 cards anyway.

Enkele suggesties voor mill kaarten: Patient Rebuilding; Sands of Delirium; Riddlekeeper; Memory Erosion; Fleet Swallower; Traumatize; Drowned Secrets; Increasing Confusion; Belltower Sphinx; Manic Scribe

Draw kaarten: Into the Story; Brainstorm

Dreamborn Muse is een optie, maar dicey gezien jij de grootste handsize hebt/will hebben. Als je genoeg spells speelt die alle spelers draw geven, is Narset, Parter of Veils een supergoede inclusie

Op dit moment zijn imo Oneirophage, Fevered Visions en Bomat Courier (die laat je geen kaarten trekken) de zwakste kaarten in het deck

FaiberJC that's a really weird rule but there are quite a lot of useful humans/wizards I believe. Bob and Notion thief are human, Thassa's Oracle is a wizard. That means you need 7 more...

Try to cut cards that are similar in function. You will also not want cursed totem with more creatures that tap for some ability.

Massacar i will be commenting soon i need to check out you deck before i can offer advice but i wanted to repost this before it gets too late. My deck:

the Bant Bestiarum Vocabulum

Commander / EDH* cascadien


ive taken some time to try and harness Chulane's gross bounce manipulation to make it more competitive with more win cons then just milling out to lab maniac. that said the best way ive found so far has been the addition of cards that will mill my opponents to some extent (Hedron Crab, Overwhelmed Apprentice & Manic Scribe) i figure if i dont use it as a main way to win at the very least the disruption to my opponents draws is the most economical way to spice Chulane up a bit. granted this is not beneficial against graveyard play/dredge decks but let me know what you guys/gals think, thanks for looking!!!
