Same deck but another substantial change. Removing Lord Xander, the Collector and subbing in Kess, Dissident Mage which has made a big difference to how this deck performs. Basically an all round improvement, although I'm sorry to see Xander go, I think it's about time as it just wasn't performing how I'd like. Any way this is a new deck format, and a new game plan!

This has become more about milling yourself either for the self mill win or to find the pieces to mill down your opponents, whichever happens first. With this deck it's best to be aggressive and mill yourself to get a decent graveyard and set yourself up for a win con.
After milling yourself, there's a few options to try, depending on your board state; There's the infinite mill of Duskmantle Guildmage + Mindcrank you just need a little milling to get it started which should be easy enough to do. Another option is Maddening Cacophony + Syr Konrad, the Grim or Bloodchief Ascension + Maddening Cacophony to get your mill damage win. Laboratory Maniac and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries are there if you wanna go for the self mill con, and Angel of Suffering or Ancient Silver Dragon will help get the draw you need! Or if you really really need to, use Living Death to just straight up overwhelm everyone else.

Peer into the Abyss + Psychic Corrosion is sitting on the side at the moment but will probably cut in once I work out what should go.

It's been fun playing with and so far works alot better than Xander ever did, but I think it can do better and get even more reliable. I think I'm looking for better ways of getting permanents back out of the graveyard and better ways of setting up the win so if you see any other strategies with the deck feel free to put in a suggestion for it and let me know what you think!
