coolguy0723 on Mill it over

I think you should cut Doorkeeper. He's your only defender creature so 3 mana and tap to mill one isn't a good payoff. Phenax, God of Deception will break the wallet a little bit but is a solid and a staple for mill. Extract from Darkness, Glimpse the Unthinkable, Psychic Corrosion, Mindcrank, and Riddlekeeper are some good options. Hope this helps as a fellow mill player!

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

wallisface on modern mill

No problem dude - i'm a huge fan of Mill so always fun to see all the various brews :)

The Modern ban-list will only show cards that were banned specifically in the set, but won't include cards that were never printed for modern. So, because modern starts from Eighth Edition onwards, it won't mention any cards printed before this time (but none of these will be modern-legal unless they were reprinted at Eighth edition or later). Also any cards that were only printed in sets intended for Legacy, Commander etc are not legal (for example, Riddlekeeper was only printed in 2 commander sets so is not legal in modern - Gatherer Link

It can be a real pain actually, and something that tripped me up for ages when getting into the game. Now whenever i'm searching for cards i'm pretty careful cause i've been stung too many times.

Please update. Riddlekeeper is outdated and can't be used in modern. Other than that I just wonder how effective is the Mesmeric Orb

phenax is a really good mill commander, my recommendations would be Riddlekeeper he can disincentives attackers coming at you, Wall of Frost also deters attacks. I have found Sphinx's Tutelage dose a lot of work in my mill deck, and a good finisher I like is Keening Stone if you can build up the mana you can drop it on to the field and knock out an opponent before they know what hit them. Tree of Perdition is a good shout too

To start, I'll work on the manabase. Temple of the False God and Darksteel Ingot should be dropped immediately, with Talisman of Indulgence and Mind Stone as nearly direct upgrades in this specific deck. I would also drop Rogue's Passage, Dismal Backwater, a single Swamp, and Dimir Aqueduct for Darkwater Catacombs, River of Tears, Fetid Pools, and Underground River.

This should smothen your draws and manabase, giving you your colors faster and more efficiently, for a small cost. Other cards I would drop outside the manabase would be Grisly Spectacle, Balustrade Spy, In Bolas's Clutches, Hedonist's Trove, Psychic Strike, Fated Return, Keening Stone, Mindcrank, Trepanation Blade, Riddlekeeper, Dreadwaters, Increasing Confusion, Paranoid Delusions, Psychic Drain, and Traumatize, many of these 15 cards are simply overcosted or only affect one player, and don't do enough.

Cards I would run instead would be Animate Dead, Ink-Eyes, Servant of Oni, Phenax, God of Deception, Mesmeric Orb, Szadek, Lord of Secrets, Counterspell, Brainstorm, Ponder, Stroke of Genius, Prismatic Lens, Jace, Memory Adept, Dreamborn Muse, Thought Scour, Dimir Charm, Whispering Madness

maybe Riddlekeeper to insetivise them to not attack you

it is a little expensive, but it will protect you against mono white, and the U/R
