I have Cast Down instead of Tyrant's Scorn. What should I replace with Drown in the Loch? I think I want to keep this deck as a mill deck fully just in case I can't draw Traumatize and Fraying Sanity. I added 6 cards that will give me drawing power, but I still need Dimir ramp.

Also, are there any blue ramp cards? I've been searching for them but I can't find any. I need ramp for Traumatize! I also need drawing power so I can actually draw Traumatize and Fraying Sanity.

Looks like you figured it out. This looks great!
Fraying Sanity + Traumatize = GG

Without help from any other effects or events, yes, but only if their deck has an even number of cards in it.

If the deck has an even number of cards - say 2N where N is a whole number - then Traumatize will mill N of them and Fraying Sanity will mill the other N.

However, if the deck has an odd number - 2N + 1 - then Traumatize will mill N and Fraying Sanity will mill N, leaving 1 card left over. If you can make another card go into their graveyard before or after casting Traumatize then this will work the way you want it to.

If I cast Fraying Sanity, then Traumatize, would that mill their entire deck?

I don't think I'll last until turn 8, and if I happen to do, I'll be able to cast more than one Traumatize. The point is to mill, but if I Want to deal damage, I'll use my Vantress Gargoyle, which is pretty darn good for combat, and depends upon my mill tactic, and it only costs 2 mana for a 5/4 and on top of that it is flying!

rjife instead of Fleet Swallower, I have Traumatize. Traumatize costs 2 less mana.

Not using Traumatize is all about mana curve. Need the steady stream and mass of small effects so can't afford to stumble over the land flood that might come from trying to build to 5 mana ~turn 5.

I definitely think there's a more traditional blue (control heavy; draw/counter) version of this deck that can afford to build into that. Possibly a dimir version that benefits from Ashiok, discard, and removal but anchors on that combo as a major wincon.

But for what I'm trying to build here- a lightweight, offensive, "blue burn" that'd break the curve.
