Rest in Peace


When Rest in Peace enters the battlefield, exile all cards from all graveyards.

If a card or token would be put into a graveyard from anywhere, exile it instead.

I mean this is great. I love this non-mill pseudo-mill plan. Particularly Forced Fruition. I don't understand the inclusion of the seals? But if you're looking for enchantment triggers in blue, you've got Shimmering Wings. You probably want some more graveyard disruption as well, like Farewell or Honor the Fallen or Relic of Progenitus or Rest in Peace or Silent Gravestone
I also really like Gerrard's Hourglass Pendant in this deck since you self mill.

Yeah the deck looks pretty strong and fine tuned from my perspective.

I recently picked up a few copies of Hallowed Moonlight to compliment Rest in Peace to help combat reanimmator but your list still seems like it could still win.

My opponent has Rest in Peace in play. Can I cast Witherbloom Command to destroy the enchantment, then mill 3? Or will the milled cards go to exile before Rest in Peace is destroyed?

Well, if you were going a third color, the obvious choice is . Drown in the Loch is so powerful in a mill deck as a denial card, as it can counter a threat or be removal, and it scales, all for 2 mana. also has a lot of gravehate options, many of which gain life, so they help against both aggro and graveyard oriented decks, which may help to free up some slots in the sideboard, by consolidating your hate a bit.

Jace, the Perfected Mind is also a pretty powerful potential tool if able to be enabled, main enabler is usually Archive Trap (would suggest Field of Ruin if you went that route). Tasha's Hideous Laughter is another option if just going for the mill since most modern decks are very low curves.

I'm also a little surprised you don't have much in the way of gravehate in your sideboard. What do you do against decks where your mill strategy enables them? Bojuka Bog and Grafdigger's Cage just seem suboptimal. If removing threats already in the graveyard, I'd consider something like Surgical Extraction or Ashiok, Dream Render. If doing something preventative, replacement effects are the way to go instead of narrow denial strategies like Grafdigger's Cage since a lot of strategies like Living End get around it. Dauthi Voidwalker or Rest in Peace are the two main cards that come to mind. Honestly though, I think your best option in your current colors is Relic of Progenitus, since it lets you slowly chip away at graveyard strategies or is a cantrip that can be used in response to their graveyard strategy.

jonniBgood, I think of spirits very similarly to aggro, so good spot removal. Hitting their first few creatures they put down with removal is key. If that's not possible, then our board definitely grows larger faster because of cards like Thalia's Lieutenant, and wider thanks to our token generators. It's basically a race!

As far as the graveyard goes, Rest in Peace does most of what we want. Weathered Runestone does prevent using the library, but I don't run into that much, so I rely more on Rest in Peace.

Thanks for the comment!

Your sideboard should probably look something like:

3x Portable Hole clear a path/interaction

2x March of Swirling Mist protection spell

1x Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip value/go faster

3x Thalia, Guardian of Thraben hates on spell based decks

3x Cathar Commando enchantment/artifact hate

1x Lavinia, Azorius Renegade can hate on fires or nykthos

2x Rest in Peace answers graveyard stratagies

So straight away I want to mention Dryad Militant Adanto Vanguard Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip and Sungold Sentinel Ambush Paratrooper and Zephyr Sentinel are not where an aggro deck wants to be... Arguably depending on what your creature makup looks like Thalia's Lieutenant could also have a home. Settle the Wreckage could well be something you want in your sideboard... A card like Calamity's Wake should really be Rest in Peace and Yotian Tactician should probably be Wedding Announcement  Flip

I'd suggest you take some inspiration from

I've been out of the loop for a while, so I'm not familiar with the Rakdos Midrange matchup. Would Ashes of the Abhorrent be good for the same thing? Or are you saying I need to put in Rest in Peace to replace something like Gods Willing for even more coverage? (Unlicensed Hearse at 3x would be over $30, and the deck now is only like $60 so kinda pricey to me, but otherwise I would absolutely slam it instead)
