Search for Blex


Look at the top five cards of our library. You may put any number of them into your hand and the rest into your graveyard. You lose 3 life for each card you put into your hand this way.

I like Sudden Reclamation, Search for Blex, Grisly Salvage, Underrealm Lich, and Golgari Grave-Troll. There are plenty of self mill options (these and others), so you really just need to figure out which ones work for you.

@Nawg, try Concordant Crossroads + Cryptolith Rite .

@Daedalus19876, I want to suggest replacing Seshiro the Anointed with Blex, Vexing Pest  Flip and here is why. 1st, if pulling a combo with Yawgmoth via an anthem effect, Blex has an advantage in that he is only 3cmc rather than 6cmc. 2nd, Blex will work with Nest of Scarabs where Seshiro does not. 3rd, when looking for card draw, Search for Blex is faster and more flexible. Getting to see 5 cards for 4 mana is really efficient, especially when the cards you dont choose to pay life for go to the graveyard anyway, making it possible to recur them later. In the majority of cases, this is going to be a much better way to put cards in your hand, rather than paying six and having to get through with combat damage.

Strange, I would think people would love to tutor their wincons with Maralen of the Mornsong and then kill her!

I've found Search for Blex to be pretty good filter/draw if you can afford to pay at max 15 to draw 5. And what about Castle Locthwain .

qwrtyp Thanks! Search for Blex I agree would be good. The card itself wouldn't fit into the budget that I was going for. Looking back I probably would change out the Harrow , Roiling Regrowth , amd Khalni Heart Expedition . For a Wood Elves , Farhaven Elf , and a Springbloom Druid to have more creatures to sacrifice and trigger both Grim Haruspex and Midnight Reaper

Nice deck! Have you considered playing Wood Elves or Farhaven Elf for ramp instead of stuff like Cultivate ? It ramps less but it comes with a sacrifice outlet. Search for Blex is a super strong filter and draw if you have the life to spare.
