Memory Erosion Discussion

Unfortunately blue is my weakest color, so I can not be of much help to you. So instead, I'd like to bring SynergyBuild into here. Perhaps they can be of some good assistance?
What I am seeing, though, is a ton of bounce effects which I assume is your engine along with your Commander to essentially draw out your library, and use Jace, Wielder of Mysteries as a wincon? Or, at the very least, an alternate wincon?
There are a good slew of enchantments in blue that mill for each card you draw. So, while you are bouncing and drawing your cards, you can also be stripping them away from your opponents. If nothing else, Sphinx's Tutelage is probably the best. Though others do exist: Jace's Erasure, Psychic Corrosion, Patient Rebuilding could be useful, Memory Erosion is similar.
If you have Jace (and perhaps a counterspell?) in hand, with both Fleet and Sanity on the field, you'd win the game.

Some good mill cards to consider are Sword of Body and Mind ,Nemesis of Reason , Memory Erosion , Jace, Memory Adept. Also if your trying to spend some money on this deck Consecrated Sphinx and Bloodchief Ascension are good utility cards in a deck like this. Hope this helps +1.

MurrSheep, I fiddled around with Memory Erosion and Hedron Crab when I was building this deck, but I found them to be inefficient in that they are more situational. Hedron Crab works great early game, unless you get mana screwed, then it's kinda pointless. I will play around with Psychic Corrosion though. I bet it would work really well with Sphinx's Tutelage.

Sick deck. Is King Macar, the Gold-Cursed being used with Freed from the Real and Phenax, God of Deception? That's a disgusting combo. Also, doesn't the Undead Alchemist + haste effect only work if you hit creatures? What if an opponent has all noncreature spells in their library?
Below are my initial thoughts. I'm no mill authority, so take my suggestions with a grain of salt. The most important thing to remember when playing commander is to play the way that YOU want to play, not someone else. These are just some cards I might put in if I was piloting Phenax.
You could use more draw. Cards like Windfall and Whispering Madness are excellent sources of both draw and mill. Ponder, Preordain, Chart a Course, Compulsive Research and Consecrated Sphinx are simply solid draw effects. Additionally, Rhystic Study is probably better for our meta than Mystic Remora, I'd say half the decks at our LGS don't play noncreature spells before turn three.
I think you need more efficient mill effects. Mesmeric Orb, Memory Erosion, Altar of Dementia, Altar of the Brood, Dreamborn Muse and Nemesis of Reason are cheaper and more effective than some of the millers you're playing.
Finally, stronger ramp is needed. I think cards like Scaretiller and Nyx Lotus are too slow and conditional; you want ramp that will immediately take effect. Consider Thran Dynamo, Solemn Simulacrum, Talisman of Dominance and Arcane Signet.
I think if you take some of the cards I've mentioned here and trim down some of the extraneous cards from your deck you can definitely power it up to a seven. Also: I wouldn't remove a ton of cards right away. I've found it's better to make small changes here and there, it's easier for me to see the card's impact on the deck.

Nosema You wrote: "Hey, Thank you so much for responding. It was really helpful and I am close to finishing the deck but I REALLY like the idea of the Duskmantle Guildmage and Mindcrank combo. I was wondering whats the best way to trigger that. like the cheapest/easiest way for your opponents to all discard a card? Also do you try to play both at the same time or play 1 and then the other and risk it being destroyed? Thanks again!"
One strategy is to improve the mill technique. If you are playing different Counterspells than Didn't Say Please, Thought Collapse, Psychic Strike could be possible additions. Maybe consider Psychic Corrosion, Memory Erosion or Jace's Erasure, but I think those Enchantments are not in the theme of the deck.. Grisly Spectacle is better as a removal with mill, Jace's Archivist helps also the Notion Thief + Whispering Madness -combo. Pilfered Plans is card draw with mill.. so you have a nice pool of cards to choose from.
Another way is to get the Discard-Theme. Very annoying but also very effective. You still may play Windfall, Dark Deal and all those cards with such an effect. Painful Quandary is awesome but creates hate. A special combo could be High Market + Howltooth Hollow + Mindslicer if you are going deeper and deeper in the theme. Bottomless Pit, Oppression are fantastic cards. Bloodchief Ascension is so good for gaining life in the discard strategy, just think of this one.
In my opinion you play both cards, but you need some Counterspells in your hand. And you should have enough mana available..

Hey robcastpwnz, thanks for the thoughts! I have to admit, I have made a few changes to the deck and haven't updated this page, so I'll get on that soon (Cut Memory Erosion and a couple others I believe).
Syr Konrad, the Grim does seem like a good fit in most Mill decks, I'll make some room for him.
I decided on on Seal of Doom over Executioner's Capsule for two reasons, main one being that it is an enchantment rather than an artifact (for diversity of permanents playable with Muldrotha each turn), and the other reason being that it has no activation cost (even though it's more expensive from the yard, I often find myself tapping out during my turn).
Plaguecrafter has crazy good value with Muldrotha, but didn't get me toward Mill any faster.
