I think it works really well with her powers as someone who sees and alters fates. I'd like to see a card, preferrably a commander, with a unique built-in pillowfort method.

Current methods or deterrence:

Full Protection: Blazing Archon, Peacekeeper, and Glacial Chasm

Conditional Protection: Arboria, Elephant Grass

(Mana) Tax effects: Ghostly Prison, Propaganda, Archangel of Tithes, Archon of Absolution, Forbidding Spirit, Elephant Grass, Windborn Muse, Baird, Steward of Argive, and War Tax (My favorite, I love the politics!)

Other costs: Norn's Annex, Reclamation, Flooded Woodlands

Hurt the attacking creature: Barbed Foliage, Briar Patch, Sarkhan the Masterless, Lightmine Field, and Lost in the Woods

Hurt the attacking player: Revenge of Ravens, Hissing Miasma, Blood Reckoning, Marchesa's Decree, Riddlekeeper? (Is this even a downside? It's not a cost, per the rules.)

Protect/Help you, the defending player: Revenge of Ravens, Righteous Cause, Orim's Prayer, Isperia, Supreme Judge, Search the Premises, Thantis, the Warweaver, Slumbering Dragon

I don't count Aurification-style effects, as the damage was already dealt.

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

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

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
