mooffalosystema i have played a load of competitive mill, winning tourney with it, and know full-well the ins-and-outs of competitive play.

If you do the math on Mind Funeral you’ll find that it is absolutely terrible when compared to almost all other 2-and-3 mana mill spells. There’s a very good reason no competitive builds ever run that card.

Indiscriminate discard is always worse than being able to target and remove the card that actually poses a threat. There will be a bunch of games where Inquisition is only able to grab the cards the opponent doesn’t really card about. Not being able to grab a Sheoldred, the Apocalypse or Scion of Draco or Murktide Regent or Yawgmoth, Thran Physician is a massive mistake when these are all very-commonly seen threats.

Your assessment of Lazotep Plating baffles me. It only temporarily stalls some combo decks, and feels negligible anywhere else. I think Storm is the only deck that would ever need to be cautious of this card, and nobodies playing Storm atm anyway cause it’s bad. If your local playgroup somehow validates this cards existence, it’s still only a sideboard card at-best (and even then, a terrible one - there’s sooo many better options!).

TFCamaro12 I agree that Leyline of the Guildpact isn't a "bad" card. The main problem is that it's such a build-around card. If you can hardcast it, you probably don't need it, and if it's not in your opening hand, you're stuck playing super slow until you get it out. It doesn't have any redundancy, so backing it up is hard. Basically, either you have it, or your deck chokes.

What exactly is the role of Leyline of the Guildpact in this deck? As I see it, the most efficient line is to set up the Urzatron, cast Morophon, the Boundless or Timeless Lotus, and cast Tiamat from there. The Leyline + Scion of Draco line is good long-game synergy, but it seems to me that dumping some big hasty smashy Dragons out might be a better payoff. There's no reason for the creature color spreading outside of Scion, and I'm not sure how much the basic land ability helps.

If I may suggest, try reworking this deck to focus more on the Morophon-Lotus-Tiamat line, and save the Guildpact for a different deck. Unless I'm missing something obvious, of course.

The More We Work Together is my shot at a Leyline of the Guildpact deck, if you're interested in seeing a different angle.

Profet93- Thanks for the suggestions! I think I will absolutely swap out Grimoire of the Dead for Skirge Familiar. Grimoire realistically costs 5 mana anyway since you need to activate its ability, and I have both Greed and a Sheoldred, the Apocalypse to add some combo elements to the deck.

I do have a Blightsteel Colossus, but it's not as useful for anti-milling since it only shuffles itself back into my deck rather than my whole graveyard. Against an infinite mill combo, it means I would be left with 1 card in my library, so I'd better win the next turn or die via decking. It IS a great creature, although it's tough to reanimate. For that reason I'll likely leave Strands of Night in the deck, as it's one of the 4 cards that can reanimate at instant speed. I might swap Victimize in for Exhume, but I'm always worried I won't have a creature out that I want to sac. I'll need to test out that theory more though.

The Broodlord is by far the easiest cut to make from the Beef section, and I agree that Torgaar isn't that great either. I do worry about having enough lifegain in the deck, so I'm planning to replace those with a Scion of Draco to give my black creatures lifelink while still having a high-cost pitchable creature, and adding the Sheoldred would also help on that front.

Archon does so much for me in drawing cards, killing creatures/PWs, and gaining life that I find it hard to cut. If I do cut it, I'd also probably cut Unmarked Grave since they go somewhat hand-in-hand, but I'm hesitant to do so.

Dauthi Voidwalker is un-cuttable imo, just as a way to make my Living Death or Exhumes better if nothing else. If I add my Bringer of the Last Gift, then even moreso I need that sort of effect. As far as cutting something that doesn't fit the deck's strategy, Opposition Agent is in the discussion since it's just a generally good card, but it might be too good to cut. Thoughts?

Caerwyn on How cascade interact with cards …

Cascade looks at the mana value (previously referred to as converted mana cost) which is generally going to be the full cost of the card. Mana value does not change even if there are cost reduction effects (there are a few situations where mana value might change on a card, such as split cards, but those are not relevant to your question).

For Scion of Draco, that will be 12, even if there were cost reductions in play. So, even if you had a cost reduction of and cast it for , your cascade would look for a spell with an 11 or less mana value.

Hey there,

This may be an extremely newbie question, but let's say that I caused damage with Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder. If I cast Scion of Draco from my hand, will I cascade for a card that cost less than 12 or will be a card that cost less than the ammount that I payed?

Incoming cards:

Add these to your deck with the correct printing and foiling. I would advise for these switches, but they are purely recommendations.

EvolutionBaby Yeah, Ajani, the Greathearted is a great passive: plus if they hit Ajani, you retain the monarchy. Always Watching is kinda okay, but better if you had more creatures, and Thraben Watcher is pretty much the same thing. Brave the Sands is a huge one, especially for blockers. Scion of Draco can be expensive at six mana, but very powerful for Jared. Sight of the Scalelords is a buff, but only if Jared is big enough. Those are my top recommendations, but especially Brave the Sands

Moat I have asked my playgroup beforehand if they where fine with me playing it and they didn't mind. As I'm the target of most removal I need some protective pieces and this card does wonders. I don't see it leaving this list soon

Purphoros, God of the Forge should leave this list, I'll get Kaalia of the Vast back in. He has been doing a very good job but not as good as the other pingers

Draconic Muralists is also a protective piece as my board gets wiped a lot. It helps me rebuild faster, but so would Black Market Connections. I'm just afraid that I don't have the hp to afford it as I only have 1 lifelink effect in the deck in Scion of Draco. Demonic Tutor is probably what should go in

as for Wheel of Fortune I'm toying around with either wheel or Greater Good. And I'm still not sure on which one to play. Black Market Connections could also take its place but again 6hp is a lot with only 1 lifegain effect. I'm playing wheel right now as its nice to have a way of resetting your entire hand

If I'm playing Black Market Connections I'll probably make room for Whip of Erebos or a nother card that gives all my creatures lifelink
