Splinterfright

Creature — Elemental

Trample

Splinterfright's power and toughness are each equal to the number of creature cards in your graveyard.

At the beginning of your upkeep, mill two cards. (Put the top two cards of your library into your graveyard.)

I like Doom Whisperer quite a bit given enough life you can chuck usually about half your library into your graveyard while keeping essential cards on top. Otherwise some one time uses are Benefaction of Rhonas, Gather the Pack, and Commune with the Gods

Tomb Robber, Undercity Informer, Sanguine Spy are nice as they are also outlets for discard and sacrificing respectively.

For indiscriminate mill I use Splinterfright, Nyx Weaver, and Perpetual Timepiece.

If you are running creature heavy Altar of Dementia (Doubles as a win con) and if you run big creatures I like Greater Good.

Songs of the Damned, World Shaper, and Skull Prophet are usually an auto include for me if I'm chucking creatures into my graveyard.

I'd try Fiend Artisan in place of either Briarhorn or Splinterfright. I maybe didn't pay enough attention to wording in my suggestion, tho, as Fiend Artisan doesn't trigger Bloodbond March's "play" ability.

Fiend Artisan seems like a very strong card for this deck, being able to put creatures into your graveyard to retrieve later while also tutoring creatures to take full advantage of whatever is in your graveyard. And it can get big like Splinterfright.

I think I'd want something to protect Bloodbond March. Tamiyo's Safekeeping or Heroic Intervention, perhaps?

Target player mills six cards. Return a permanent card from your graveyard to your hand for each land card milled this way.

Overload


has always felt more self-mill to me. That's probably influenced by the original Innistrad, with stuff like Splinterfright, Boneyard Wurm, Tracker's Instincts, Memory's Journey...

Anyway, create a land card.

Red05 - I would say it needs "more" self-mill not in the sense that more cards should self-mill, but the cards you include should each mill for more. Bang for card buck mill-wise.

It feels like the aim of this deck is to get the graveyard as full of some juicy keywords as quickly as possible, then let the beatdown commence with whatever creatures are on board after a Kathril play. The self-mill you have is somewhat limited or can't be played until later turns when you could already be falling behind. Dakmor Salvage is only good when you can consistently send it back to grave, Splinterfright just dies if you have no creatures in grave already, Stitcher's Supplier only mills 3 until your opponent decides to kill it, Deadbridge Chant and See the Unwritten require 6 mana which can take time, etc...

Pair that with the fact that there's only ~17 decent keyword providers at your disposal, the odds of ripping the several that you'll want to start with is low without more consistent mill. Some back-of-the-napkin math shows that even if you mill yourself for 6 cards there's still a ~1/3 chance that NONE of those creatures even get milled, let alone only milling some of the more tame keywords like flying or hexproof which by themselves probably won't win you any games.

Therefore, it feels like having some low-cost, high-yield self-mill options would be extremely valuable - the kind of thing where when you pull it in your opening hand or turn 2 you know you can get the ball rolling. You already have Nyx Weaver, Skull Prophet, World Shaper, and Death's Oasis which fits that bill, and having a couple more cards like those would add a lot more consistency. Mesmeric Orb (though a bit expensive) is reliable and even works on your opponents. As I mentioned before, dredge cards would be an especially nice conclusion since it means self-mill can lead you to more self mill when you don't need card draw. My personal favorite is probably Shambling Shell since it can sac itself turn after turn if you have just 3 mana and are desperate for grave fuel.

After messing around with a version of my own and trying some stuff out, easy discard outlets could also be a good inclusion in case you rip your meaty keyword cards into your hand and can't play them. Your Greenseeker fits nicely there, and Lotleth Troll can do the same but turning himself into more of a threat in the process.

Hit Turn 8 a few times. Still got work.

Wondering if I should aim for Grist ult. I want Ashes to happen for huge self mill but not complete. Maybe Boneyard Wurm over Splinterfright or Old Stickfingers for a few two drop 'goyfs.

Will (+) Emry. I'm going to try Shriekhorn for another target for Chancellor G.

Definitely a cool card. Some suggestions:

I like how you're already leveraging the enchantment with grave dumping like Commune and some evoke/undying creatures, but I think you could be running even more creatures like this.

Shriekmaw is so funny. I definitely think you should run some, since you don't really have any removal. For 2 mana, you can return like 2 more shriekmaws from your grave to blow up three creatures and then get some 3/2 bodies.

For the sideboard, Endurance would be very strong grave hate, a lot better than bojuka bog. The price tag definitely isn't ideal though.

Satyr Wayfinder is a great way to dump cards into the graveyard on a creature body. It's a shame it only gets lands, but it still feels very strong here.

Splinterfright is another self mill threat similar to Nyx Weaver but it gets fat as hell.

You'd have to splash red, but casting a Kroxa, Titan of Death's Hunger for 2 and then getting one back from the grave for free sounds super cool.

Fulminator Mage for tron? Or even for non tron because wiping opponents lands is nice.

Eternal Witness can get back stuff.
