Interesting take on mill +1

Some Food for Thought:

  • Either Witness Protection or Stasis Field is a pretty easy upgrade to make over Ichthyomorphosis, less mana cost. (there's other 2-mana Blue auras along this line as well with other benefits: Eaten by Piranhas with Flash for example)

  • Spark Double won't let you copy opponent's creatures, but might be better for you than Undercover Operative since it'd let you copy & keep multiple Bruvacs in play. Otherwise, Metamorphic Alteration lets you copy opponent's stuff as well as your own for half the CMC of the Operative, you just need a creature already in play (not a big issue with your build from the looks of it)

  • I'm assuming Diamond Mare is in here because mono-red just won't go away in the queue, but if this is a best-of-3 deck, Drowned Secrets would offer a lot more synergy with the rest of your deck for the 2CMC slot (in games where the reliable lifegain isn't as important).

  • Finally and Most Obviously, the 1 Fraying Sanity you have there too should be in the deck - ideally a couple more copies since they stack (yeah, I know, rare wildcards ugh - assuming this is why it's only 1x)

Catch you on Arena sometime

goblin4god the changes/reductions you’ve made so far have all looked great, so I definitely think you’re on the right track!

For specifically getting down to 60 cards, i’d suggest ditching the following 7:

  • remove the 2 Talrand, Sky Summoner. You have waay stronger threats already in your deck and this card sits in a weird position of neither posing a massive threat, nor ramping/controlling the boardstate.

  • remove the 1 Eldrazi Conscription. It’s overkill when all your big threats easily end the game by themselves.

  • remove the 4 Tyvar's Stand. You have enough redundancy you can easily afford to lose a creature or two. And you should have enough control over the lategame to keep your big threat alive without needing this.

After that, here’s some other options worth considering for card swaps - i’ve tried to keep budget in mind.

  • Mana Leak is better than Negate - opponents will almost never have the mana to pay the cost, and it hits a much wider breadth of cards.

  • Wash Away is clumsy, and expensive to play the cleave cost. I’d be running Witness Protection instead so you can ruin any of your opponents threats that get into play.

  • Dispel is very situational, i’d probably swap it for 2 copies of Spell Pierce and 2 copies of Spell Snare - both cards which have a bit more universal use.

  • Shark Typhoon is super strong for both offering you early game card draw, and late game free-win-condition. If you have the $$$ i’d be running 3 total (swapping out 2 of your other big-threat cards).

  • if you want stronger card draw, Preordain will probably offer more overall value than Opt.

Good luck with the brew! :)

This deck is great! I added 2 Argoth, Sanctum of Nature  Meld to the mana base to add more self mill and built a rudimentary sideboard for best of three:


2 Outland Liberator  Flip

2 Witness Protection

2 Disdainful Stroke

2 Unlicensed Hearse

2 Gix's Command

3 Shore Up

2 Titania, Voice of Gaea  Meld

I am thinking of switching Disdainful Stroke out for Make Disappear but other than that this deck rocks. Great brew!

Very well done for the price restriction.

Vapor Snag > Unsummon, though not sure if it puts the deck over budget. Witness Protection might be another good option for a more permanent answer to a problem.

Great build! Have you considered a similar build using Mist-Cloaked Herald or Triton Shorestalker or River Sneak?

For a board, I think Merfolk Trickster, Harbinger of the Tides, Kopala, Warden of Waves, Wizard's Retort, and Witness Protection are all great options.
