Sphinx's Tutelage Discussion

lagotripha on Modern Mill Deck Help

Most mill decks are trying to generate value with Hedron Crab + Ruin Crab + fetches, with Fatal Push / Drown in the Loch as support. Its a pretty well established archetype, with a set of cards that all work pretty well, but it looks set for a shakeup.

I have seen more budget lists leaning harder on Fraying Sanity , Sphinx's Tutelage and Mesmeric Orb , often with a lot more interaction.

Fractured sanity (new cycling mill spell)+ Counterspell looks like the kind of thing that will breathe some life into the mono blue lists with Sanity Grinding . Small stuff like Sea Gate Restoration  Flip having 3 blue on a land, and Archmage's Charm being printed as potential support means that the whole thing is worth keeping an eye on.

Millstone , Inaction Injunction , and Geralf's Mindcrusher are three cards that seem on the weak side here. For the first, maybe something like Sphinx's Tutelage could make the best use of your cantrips for maximum cards milled. It would also make the detain card better, although I think I'd still prefer a more permanent answer like additional Detention Sphere , Darksteel Mutation , or the weaker but thematically consistent Deep Freeze . When it comes to the Mindcrusher, I think he's just too slow to only be milling 5-10 cards while not contributing to the defender gameplan. I'd probably just hard swap him for 3 more Wall of Lost Thoughts , Wall of Omens , or maybe Mnemonic Wall . Also, if you don't mind splashing black, Phenax, God of Deception is a great bomb to supplement Doorkeeper s.

Maybe some typical mill cards to fill graveyards? Sphinx's Tutelage , Traumatize , Startled Awake  Flip, Paranoid Delusions .

Phenax, God of Deception is a solid blocker and steady mill.

This is great! I didn't even see the combo between Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank but I love it! Definitely agree with the tutors for that. Im a little unsure about Soaring Thought-Thief because I don't really have many rogues but I could be wrong. I was originally thinking the same thing about Undead Alchemist but it would combo so well with the mill. Very cool adding in a few cards with intimidate to make the deck more aggressive. I also already have Jace's Mindseeker and a Increasing Confusion so I could swap those two in for something. This is great though I really like the build. The only one I'm confused about why it was cut is Nemesis of Reason because its only 5 mana and every time it attacks its 10 cards. I think of the maybeboard cards I would shell out for, Traumatize and Sphinx's Tutelage would probably be at the top of my list. But if I was gonna get 4-5 of the maybe board cards, what would you say is the best? I love this deck already and can't wait to put it together!

Door of Destinies really helpful in tribal decks, you obviously have a lot of draw power in this deck so why not run Sphinx's Tutelage as another potential win con, id also consider running something like Doubling Cube or Caged Sun maybe add Sleep and Clone Legion this combo alone has won me games and is really effective vs token decks but I really like it and would not like to play against it haha

It’s worth noting that Grindstone and Sphinx's Tutelage do not have any specific interactions with Blind Seer , other than “it’s a mono-coloured Commander, so you’re likely to have a lot of the same color.”

Neither is a great win con outside of Painter’s Servant, since you’re at the mercy of hitting lands.

Your best bet, like any mono-blue deck, is generate infinite mana with Scepter/Reversal, power artifact, or other artifact combos, then sink it into an X draw spell.

This is what I have so far: Color vision I haven't really put much money into it, I tried to challenge myself with a mono coloured deck. I have Willbreaker and that seems like a good card here. I don't have Painter's Servant and it's a bit pricy for my taste. But I have Sphinx's Tutelage , that could work with some other cards also...

I'm going to shamelessly plug my Color Shift deck. It's and super janky, but good for annoying and confusing people into making mistakes. Although I have to admit, it doesn't have much if a win condition either...

Anyway, for a real suggestion, Grindstone yourself to a Thassa's Oracle win follows the color-matter theme, especially if you have Painter's Servant . Or Painter's Servant with Sphinx's Tutelage .
