Sphinx's Tutelage Discussion

Ulgulanoth on EDH mill what ?!?!?

Well you can try Jace's Erasure, Sphinx's Tutelage, or Teferi's Tutelage for more mill enchantments

I switched to Tuvasa the Sunlit as the cmdr and made it mostly control with auras. The deck had tons of payoffs. Cards like Sythis, Harvest's Hand and Verduran Enchantress to cards like Sigil of the Empty Throne and Shark Typhoon. The control element complements tuvasa to go voltron pretty easily. Also multile back up strategies like Approach of the Second Sun, going wide with a token army and mill with Psychic Corrosion and Sphinx's Tutelage

you have too many counter spells and not enough mill spells. mill isn't a control deck, it's meant to be fast like aggro. you don't want to waste turn 3 tapping out for Fraying Sanity or Sphinx's Tutelage. you're missing things like Glimpse the Unthinkable, Hedron Crab, fetch lands for the crabs (so you can get 2 triggers per turn) and the most important piece by far is Tasha's Hideous Laughter.

great list, I also own a Bruvac deck very similar to yours, I'm using petitioners but at this point, I do not own a Thrumming Stone.

In your list you do not run some cards like:

More ramp - Sapphire Medallion,Arcane Signet, Mind Stone, your land count is few 33, and only 3 ramp rock, no artifact tutors, I think will be hard sometimes to have 6 mana to cast Maddening Cacophony and kill all the table or recast Bruvac more times.

Protection - You ran 10 counterspells but not Lightning Greaves effects

What is your opinion about Dramatic Reversal + Isochron Scepter combo? it needs rocks to be infinite, but cheaper than Intruder Alarm + Thrumming Stone. I do not run it now, but I was thinking on make some room in the deck for it.

I do run the Grindstone + Painter's combo and I included some artifact tutors FabricateWhir of Invention, also Sphinx's Tutelage, to have other combos to win.

Back to Basics will be a great inclusion in your deck. Since I'm not running Thrumming Stone I have only 23 Petitioners, but I'm planning to remove some cards to reach at least 25, and take advantage of cards like Herald's Horn that I also ran on the deck.

I'm not the utmost expert on mill decks, though I've seen plenty of them on this site for easy reference.

First off, there are definite infinite combos for the theme, but I don't know them all because I prefer not to use them. However, one that I do know is Arcanis the Omnipotent + Laboratory Maniac + Mind Over Matter . That's more for a self-mill deck, and generally runs Thassa's Oracle with other infinite combos.

Other than that, here's a short list of things I can think of that are missing from your list:

Sorry for the amazingly long and complicated response, haha. Also, I didn't take the time to check how many of my suggestions were already on your list, so I apologize if I did that.

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.
